    Summary

    Carriers are those chosen by the gods to either carry or father a child. They were either worshiped or seen as abominations to most. For as long as Patroclus could remember his father had forced conceal his status because it would bring shame to their house. He could now assume that his father may have been right, he was carrying the child of Achilles, the foretold Aristo Acharion. Only he concealed this fact in fear of his lover and goddess mother's reactions. Achilles' one of shock and disgust or Thetis' one rage and retribution.

    Summary

    Thetis never put Patroclus' name on the tomb at the end of the Song of Achilles. He has been wandering the earth for 3000 years, his name forgotten by almost all. That is, until he gets a visitor.

    Summary

    “Pay attention to me,” he complains --whines, really-- as if I can ever ignore him. My eyes are still open, transfixed on him suddenly, and he grins at the attention, stealing a kiss. It is fleeting, just the brush of his lips against mine and then he’s gone; sitting back on his heels. He’s grinning at me still, tugging at my arms and trying to lift me up-- only he is using too little strength. I lean forward to help him, sitting up, but as soon as I do Achilles abandones me and springs up.

    “Race you!” he calls, laughing, and then he’s gone again.

    Summary

    After that, it almost became a constant for Patroclus to find Achilles in his cloak—when they were alone of course. He slept in it and whenever he needed comfort and Patroclus was not there, the cloak was the next best thing.

    Achilles likes to wear Patroclus's cloak

    Summary

    “Hey Achilles?” I asked, my head on his stomach.

    He stopped strumming. “Yeah?”

    “Can I ask you something? It’s kinda . . .” I trailed off, humph-ing as I couldn’t think of the right word.

    “Of course you can.”

    I took a deep breath. “Why did you ask me out?”

    I felt his muscles in his stomach tighten. “Because I like you?” He said, but it seemed more like he was asking me.

    “Why?” was my initial response. I clamped a hand over my mouth at that, surprised at myself.

    Achilles made a sound like he’d choked. “Are you actually asking me?”

    “I hadn’t meant to but . . . yeah, sort of.” I shrugged. “It’s just . . . you’re so amazing and beautiful and I’m just me: plain.”
