    Summary

    "You gonna need me for anything else?" This was one of their things. Cliff rarely thought about how it had evolved over the years, but it had become some sort of code between the two of them.

    Summary

    "Rick glances over and is hit with a surge of oh. Golden hair and golden skin. A sunbeam in torn denim and a loose, barely buttoned shirt. Goddamn, Rick doesn’t usually go for those hippie types but this one was different. Rick watches him glance around the store and Rick has to wonder if the kid is even twenty-one."

    Summary

    "There’s probably some underlying jealousy in there, when Rick watches him – Cliff’s always had that strong, leading man profile. Angular and masculine where he should be, full lips and the quirk of a smile where you’d least expect it."

    Summary

    Sometimes, they drink too much and end in Rick’s house. It is easier that way, when they are drunk and can blame the alcohol and act like nothing happened the night before. Sometimes, they drink just to have an excuse to end naked and desperate in Rick’s bed, or Rick’s sofa, or Rick’s pool.

    Summary

    “I-I love you, buddy,” Rick says, stepping forward despite the wobble in his knees and tears in his eyes. “But I-I need time and space and sometimes -- sometimes I can’t think straight around you.”

    Rick reaches out for Cliff’s hands, tries to twine them together but Cliff’s fingers are limp and loose at his sides. Rick looks up, searching for any kind of understanding - because even at Rick’s weakest Cliff is there, nodding and knowing.

    But Cliff’s just turns away, looks up at the sky and says, “Alright.”

    There's about ten moments that bring them together. Give or take. Depends on who you ask, really, and how many whiskey sours that person may have had.
