    Summary

    Billy discovers Steve's biggest secret five months into their relationship.
    It's not the monsters.
    That one comes out before they're even together.

    It's also not the hairspray.
    Billy finds that the first morning he stays over.

    It's not even the fact that, although he usually orders take out or heats up a frozen dinner, Steve can actually cook like a pro.
    Steve saves that reveal for exactly one month after they get together.

    No.
    The biggest secret is Steve’s damned stuffed toy. His little dog. The saggy, baggy bean filled sack of love that he’s had since he was tiny.

    Summary

    ‘We’re good together,’ Harrington says to the darkness above. Not a question. Matter of fact. He turns to Billy, a smile sweet enough to make Billy want to do something reckless. Something stupid. ‘I’m telling you, heartbreaker. We’re gonna be unstoppable.’

    Billy wants to ask. If he means tomorrow. If he means just for the game.

    Wants to ask if he means forever.

    He’s never wanted anyone to mean forever before.

    or; falling (in love), the hard way

    Summary

    Billy never really...got Valentine’s Day. Didn’t understand why his mom got all misty-eyed when they walked past displays of roses in the grocery store. Why there was a bitterness about it. A sadness she seemed to carry with her everywhere.
    Didn’t really get why girls would titter over the cardboard cut-out hearts they made in art class, messy with glitter and lopsided declarations in smelly marker.
    He didn’t really understand...girls, honestly. The appeal. Why his friends would be screaming one second about girls not being allowed to play with them, and the next, chasing down Amy Wright trying to steal a kiss.

    or
    the way billy's feelings about valentine's day, and himself, change over the years

    Summary

    Valentines Day, 1993 begins and ends exactly the way Steve thought it would: on the couch with Billy, a joint and a pint of ale passing like a cloud between them as they watch whatever slasher flick is playing on pay-per-view.

    The stuff in the middle, though, changes everything.

    (or) the one where Billy doesn't know how to change a flat tire.
