    Summary

    Sitting at the table was Sid: Sid as Zhenya had first known him, almost a decade before: dorky, long-haired Sid, his cheeks round with baby fat. He couldn’t have been older than twenty, and even that was generous.

    “Wow,” baby Sid said. “Are you Evgeni Malkin?”

    Summary

    Geno puts his hand on the back of Sidney’s neck, gently, without real pressure and Sidney can feel everything in him slowly folding.

    He looks up, his pulse beating hard in his throat. “Take me home before I get on my knees in the fucking parking lot.”

    Geno’s smile is, as always, best when it’s for Sidney.

     

    It takes the whole season, but Sidney finally learns to let go.

    Summary

    Sidney always knew his family would pick who he ended up with. It was how things were done, and no matter what the outside world thought, he'd never questioned it before because it was just the reality: ice was frozen, getting checked against the boards knocked the wind out of you, one day Sid would be matched to someone his parents and the matchmaker and his aunts and uncles and his community thought was the best fit for him. And best of all, Sidney wouldn't have to worry about it. He would just focus on hockey. He'd deal with it one day. Eventually.

    'One day' had seemed so much farther away when he was younger.

    Summary

    He was just a kid, just like Sidney, and far away from home. When Sidney didn’t look away, Evgeni mimed swinging a baseball bat, and Gonch was right; it was clear he had no idea what he was doing.

    That was the first time Sidney thought they could maybe be friends.
