    Summary

    Xandra laughs and winks at you, playing along but you see the anger in her eyes “If she’s lucky.” You blush and go back to leaning by Xan, her hand immediately wrapping around your waist, nails digging in harshly. “Anything else, officers?” The male cop grunts “Any drug use?” You laugh, and so does Xan “Just ‘cause we live in Vegas, doesn’t mean we shove things up our noses. My girl can’t use anyway unless she wants to lose her job.”

    Summary

    philophobia [ fil-uh-foh-bee-uh ]:

    (n.) (from Greek "φιλέω-φιλώ" (love) and "φοβία" (phobia)) the fear of falling in love or being in love. The risk is usually when a person has confronted any emotional turmoil relating to love. This affects the quality of life and pushes a person away from commitment. A negative aspect of this fear of being in love or falling in love is that it keeps a person in solitude. It represents certain guilt and frustration towards the reaction coming from inside.

    Theo knows what the problem is, but that doesn't mean that he's going to do anything about it.

    Summary

    Finally, I said, “Wow,” which was always my go-to when I was speechless.

    He nodded as if I’d voiced something profound. “Yeah. So, we are better in small doses, I think. Like with your pills and my needles. Just a fix, once in a while. Not addicts. See what I mean? We need space.” He waved a hand to indicate the small distance between us on the couch.

    I laughed again, more out of befuddlement than humor. “This still sounds very much like a break up.”

    He sighed and leaned his head back for a minute, while I examined his shadowy profile, his elegant hooked nose. “Okay, fine. Maybe it is break up.”

    “But we’re not…”

    “Are we not?” he cut me off, lifting his head to fix me with his sharp, dark gaze.

    I stared back at him blankly, mouth hanging slightly open, like an idiot. He rolled his eyes at my expression and muttered, “Jesus Christ, Potter.” Then he reached over to grasp me by the back of the neck and kissed me.

    Summary

    It was true that Boris could be rather unpredictable, but the two boys had fallen into some resemblance of a routine over the past few months, and Theo had grown to know him as a little bit of an early bird. But today, it takes Theo forever to wake Boris who is red-nosed and feverish. He wished he'd made Boris stay home before he got worse.

    Summary

    Have you ever instantly regretted meeting someone? Unfortunately, that’s not how it was with Boris. Theo didn’t learn to regret it until at least the second time they met. Thinking back, instant knowledge of what was to come would knock him on his ass, but instead they had to have a meet cute without Theo’s accurate knowledge nor consent, and what was he supposed to do about that other than let himself meet cute.

    Summary

    She sits by the bed, letting out an uneven breath “My cellphone is dead too. So- So I can’t even call for anyone… I’m sorry. You’re probably terrified and it’s all my fault…” She buries her face in her hands, sobbing quietly. You don’t know what came over you, she was right, you should be terrified, but you felt the need to comfort her. You weakly grab her wrist to pull her onto the bed with you, pulling her into your warm embrace. “It’s okay Diane. It’s- It’s not your fault. Shh- Not your fault, you hear me? You can’t help the weather.”

    Summary

    "Boris hated the word, and the term made Theo’s blood curdle. He’d rather call Boris a pet name than the infantile "boyfriend". Boris was his best friend and that was enough. Saying they were best friends explained their intertwined lives and hearts well enough. "Boyfriend" was too common, too overused. Too understood-- or misunderstood-- by the public; someone would hear it and think they understood how he and Boris worked. No one but them did, and Theo prided himself on that. He didn’t have to say that he loved Boris when he hung up the phone, it was implied, of course. Although, maybe it could be heard in Theo’s voice-- prompting said awful question. Regardless, best friends was the term they grew up with-- and grew into as their time in Vegas faded to just a nostalgic wave; a shiver in the sweltering city heat or jolt of energy while under the starless, dark abyss of sky."

     
    [OR Theo invites Boris over to his dorm, and to stay the night. Apropos hilarity ensues-- as well as some romantic realizations.]

    Summary

    “Is that... Miss Theo Decker?”

    Theo whipped around at the name, pivoting his shoulder to block Boris as he did the same. A young man-- their age-- stood, casual and amused, in front of a newsstand. He was tall and lean-- almost gangly-- and pale. His face was round and freckled, a pair of gold-rimmed glasses pushed up on his nose. The appearance was new but the warmth in it knocked the wind right out of Theo.

    “A-Andy? Holy shit. Is that--” Of course it was. “You look great!”

    “Thanks! And you don’t look too heterosexual yourself.” Andy lifted his eyebrows and nodded toward Theo, shifting his glasses slightly.

    [OR a reunion with Andy Barbour, ten years later. Ranges from best friend banter to brief sappy love confessions/marriage proposals without a ring to delayed apologies and much needed closure.]
