    Summary

    Remember the dog Charles and Richard brought home from the greyhound track in Pownal?

    For the short time it was with them, the twins loved it and it followed Camilla everywhere. In this story, she remembers those days as well as the funeral they held for it. And, of course, this was only the first of several deaths, and it was the only funeral Camilla remembers feeling sad at.

    (I was in the mood for Camilla's PoV and for painful reflections, I guess.)

    Summary

    “Alright, Francis?” said Charles, as taken aback by his appearance as I was.

    Francis blinked at us, then, the realisation dawning on him, swallowed in dismay.

    “Oh blast, the picnic,” he muttered, then cleared his throat into his fist. “I’m so sorry, Charles, I might need a raincheck.”

    There was a silence, followed by Charles raising a suspicious eyebrow.

    “It’s not raining.”

    (or, the one where Francis falls ill... and Charles thinks he’s heard it all before.)

    Summary

    Julian introduces them to the idea of the bacchanalia.

    Henry is intrigued.

    Francis thinks back to this day years later and wonders whether he should have recognized Henry's intense fascination, drawn certain conclusions from it, behaved differently, changed things...

    Summary

    I fumbled against the sideboard, hands gripped over the edges. My heart was racing- what if the others come back, what if someone needs a glass of water? Then Henry’s mouth was at my zipper, two fingers loosening my belt, and God, I thought, I gasped into the silence. Who cares?

    Summary

    I exhaled, a strange, wild relief bubbling through my chest at this small victory. The fabric of the air buzzed and shimmered, gauzy wet on my skin.

    Yes, it seemed to say. This way.

    Francis, Charles and Camilla row out onto the lake in summer.

    Summary

    I love her a great deal, Camilla, in some ways more than anyone. The others know about me, of course they do, but there’s always a certain degree of pretence, the greatest lie being that I’m wholly comfortable with it myself. I love her because she shares that too. I love her because she enjoys it. I love her because she isn’t paradise. And I love her because she’s beautiful.

    The scene where Francis and Camilla wait on the footbridge, and the one that follows after.

    Summary

    Surely, he can't be-

     

    “No?” He said. A bemused red eyebrow was raised.

     

    Surely, he was.

    Summary

    Richard reminisces how him and Francis became close after Henry's passing. He values their friendship, but it seems that Francis has a different outlook to their relationship.

    ---

    Had I not known Francis was a hypohondriac, I would have been seriously concerned, but hearing his voice, and being tempted with seeing my friend again, were what influenced me to agree to meet Francis. Of course he did not suffer from diabetes, as all five doctors we visited explained, but commuting from clinics to hospitals had brought us closer than we had ever been. Perhaps the irregular visits and Francis needing a permanent place to stay was what brought us together and what helped us to set our sights on a two-bedroomed middle class house in the neighbourhood Henry had once lived in.

    Summary

    For all my faults — many, no doubt, if the breadth of my father’s criticism was anything to go by — I would not call myself unobservant in matters of human nature.

    Summary

    Richard studies the pottery in the Japanese selection carefully. The placard reads Kintsugi and the pots are veined with lines of gold. Some of them are so veiny that Richard thinks momentarily of the light angel veins around one’s heart. He wonders if these pots are living breathing things.

    He does not know why he is reminded of Henry when he studies the pottery.

    Summary

    liberosis. n. the desire to care less about things.

    Francis isn't sure why he expected things to end any differently between him and Charles tonight. Or maybe he didn't, and at this point he's just so desperate that he's willing to pretend.
