    Summary

    Everything stops. There's no sound, not even the sound of the blood that should be rushing in Eric's ears. He can feel the Earth stop turning. The sun goes dark, and for a second Eric knows what it's like to simply cease existing, to be sucked into a vacuum of silence. He's negative space, he's insignificant particles floating in nothing at all.

    "What happened?"

    *

    A week in the life of a death.

    Summary

    Suzanne knows where to find the answers.

    The answers lie in their church sermons and their distaste. They lie in hushed whispers and disgusted slurs. They lie in Georgia and its refusal to change where it matters when so much of the country has. They lie in all the words and actions her son had suffered.

    The answers lie inside themselves: Rick’s insistence of a better pasttime for Eric, her concern, their expectations. Her denial, if not for her son and his interests, then for his suffering and the words he yearned to tell her.

    Sweetheart, tell me what? You know Jack’s gonna be busy this summer no matter which way these games go. Staying with a friend for that long. That’s a lot to put on him.

    Mama. No. No. Jack. Jack’s… He’s my— I—

    Suzanne wonders if Eric also calls Jack sweetpea.

    Summary

    So Jack's not a master at this whole "understanding his feelings" thing . . . or "expressing his feelings" idea . . . or "feelings" in general, for that matter. Jack is, however, smart enough to know that his first reaction upon meeting Bittle's boyfriend shouldn't be wanting to cave the guy's face in.

    (He doesn't, of course, but that's a completely different story.)

    Or: Jack doesn't join the NHL after graduation, he doesn't kiss Bittle, and he definitely doesn't notice his feelings for him. This is the mess that follows.
