'Every time I fail, I just end up laying in my bed, staring at the ceiling and wondering what I did wrong this time.'
“Alexander Hamilton! I’m at your service, sir!”
Aaron looks at the hand and doesn’t take it. His hands are safely in his pocket, but he’d taken off his gloves, and he is not particularly in the mood to feel the single most consequential juncture of a stranger’s life.
Alexander is still grinning at him, and the moment is stretching on, and he refuses to put his hand down, and Aaron has about half a second before this staring contest verges beyond the mere impolite and into the territory of heavy, awkward weight and scattered excuses—and before he can think better of it, Aaron takes Alexander’s hand.
- Part 1 of it feels more like a memory
23 Feb 2020
When Sebastian was 13 he and his family went on a trip to the coast. He hadn’t put much thought into how dangerous a cliff face could be. He had stopped paying attention at some point and moved too close to the edge. He’d wanted to get a rock into the water so badly that he had completely abandoned any sense of where he was standing. One little misstep and the rocks had given way underneath him.
The last thing Sebastian remembered before he fell was the tight tense of his stomach as he lurched downward, and the ironically calm ocean waves on the beach.
When he woke next, he was in a hospital and four days had passed.
When he sees Jim Moriarty stick a gun in his mouth and pull the trigger, the feeling is similar. Only this time Sebastian doesn’t black out and the sensation of falling doesn’t leave him.
But then, he's given a second chance to fix the past and suddenly Sebastian has his footing again.
