    Summary

    Michael has spent his whole life staring up at the sky, but Alex Manes’ smile is still the brightest thing he’s ever seen. 

    ****

    There’s less of Alex than there used to be. 

    Physically, yes, but the losses run so much deeper than that; the war stole far more from him than just his leg.

    He manages to hide it fairly well, but Michael knows. The brightest parts of the boy he once loved have been scraped away, leaving him hollow and distant and a little cold, as if the fire inside him has gone out. 

    Or nearly has, anyway. An ember still burns, buried deep and almost swallowed in the dark, but Michael sees flashes of it in those moments when he’s tangled up with Alex, their clothes stripped away and pasts cast aside.

    And Michael is determined to coax that ember back to life… if only he could figure out how to do the same for himself.
