    Summary

    Bitty likes the quiet. Not the kind of silence that fills an empty house or the hush that falls around campus with the first snowfall of the season. Bitty likes the quiet he can find in his favorite places; the simple sounds of a pair of skates gliding across Faber in the solitude of the early morning, the barely-there hum of the familiar oven in his Mama’s kitchen, the soft breathing of his boyfriend on the rare occasions Bitty wakes before him. It’s those quiet moments that Bitty lives for, despite his talkative and extroverted nature.

    But for all the quiet moments Bitty treasures, sometimes the silence is the worst thing in the world. It can be tense, pulsing with unspoken emotions. It can be suffocating, forcing courageous words back down your throat. It can be deafening, the ringing in your ears as you try to recall the last few seconds. And despite Bitty’s knack for weaving stories, whispering sweet words into Jack’s ear, and cajoling a laugh out of his teammates, when faced with that silence, not a single word can be conjured to fill the space.

    ----

    In this story, Bitty gets to break the news to his parents on his terms.

    Summary

    Resigned to not being understood, Jack sighs heavily. “Nevermind. I’m just tired and getting a little hysterical. It’s going to be an adjustment, but we can handle it. We will handle it,” he amends, shaking his head.

    “You still think Itty Bitty needs more,” Tater says finally, eyes narrowing. “You think he find boyfriend that less trouble? Less anxious? Less broken? Less work? You afraid he leave you?”

    “I—” Jack starts to protest but chokes on the words.

    “Everyone take work, Jack,” Tater says, laying a hand on his shoulder and then ducking his head until Jack looks at him. “No one perfect boyfriend, perfect husband all the time. Eric know this. He love you anyway.”

    Jack and Bitty love, laugh, struggle, and survive together during the most joyous and most difficult days of their lives.

    Summary

    Jack’s sprawled on the living-room couch on a Friday after morning skate, watching tape of the Tampa defence, when it happens.  Bitty’s phone rings, and out in the kitchen, Bitty’s voice says cheerfully, “Hey, Mama!” Jack listens with only half an ear.
    Then the quality of the silence from the kitchen changes, somehow, and Jack pauses the playback, sits up, and turns to look.
    Bitty’s clutching the phone to his ear with one hand, and clutching the edge of the kitchen island with the other. His face is pale and his eyes are huge and he looks about ten seconds away from bursting into tears.

    Summary

    (For a moment, his mother had looked so sad.

    She already knew. Of course she did. Sometimes, it seems like Bitty was the last person to figure it out. 

    Still. When the words are finally out of his mouth—Mama, I love him. I love him so much.—his mother cries. And she cries the next time he calls, and the next. 

    His father doesn’t call at all.)

     

    Or, Eric Bittle, love, and everything in between.

    Summary

    “Alright y’all, this one here is real simple. First one to that tree,” Coach pointed to a large oak tree at the far end of the yard, “wins. But,” he added as Bitty’s older cousins and uncles got into their ready positions, “y’all have to be carrying your partner.” He nodded in Bitty’s direction and Bitty smiled. Every year it was “carry your girl.”
