    Summary

    It was a Sunday, but Claire had an emergency appointment at eight and had to roll muttering out from beneath warm sheets and the arms of a warmer, sleeping Alex. He kissed her shoulder, stubble scraping against her freckles, and mumbled something incoherent about tadpoles, and wanting her to stay.

    Summary

    Her first year in college, Claire roomed with a New Yorker. Despite her name, there was nothing about Jane that was plain—she was tall and angular, with a mass of pink, permed hair and a tendency to snap her gum while she talked.

    Summary

    Afterwards, she thought that she should have guessed: Alex had been twitchy for days, restless with something she'd thought at the time was simply an expression of the energy which always filled him for a week or two after the last draft of his newest book had been submitted to his editor.

    Summary

    "So," Alex says when she opens her front door, "Compromise, negotiation, compatibility..." He's leaning, casual and loose, against the door jamb, wearing that old brown sweater of his that she knows has been a favourite since college. His hair's the same mess it always is, and he's got a dog-eared copy of yesterday's Sun Times in one hand. Her column is circled in a broad loop of green ink.

    Summary

    "I didn't think it'd be this difficult," Alex murmurs, his voice lazy, heavy with the hour and the distance between them. The phone line crackles, but Claire can still hear his breathing. She shifts in bed.

    Summary

    Alex walks around with a smirk on his face for the rest of the week; eyes her over breakfast with a smug look on his face; watches her from the couch while she's trying to work through the proofs of her next book, stroking one thumb over the stubble and grinning.
