    Summary

    “Who are you?” Wymack says gruffly, but in a tone that Neil doesn’t think is accusatory.

    “This is Neil,” Allison says, appearing from somewhere else, managing, somehow, not to look ruffled in the least despite running around all morning. “He’s been running the lights, and he’s brilliant.”

    “I didn’t give you the job.”

    “No,” Neil responds, after a slight hesitation.

    “We needed an extra set of hands, and Neil was outside.”

    “He’s a stray?” Wymack asks, and Allison nods. “Of course he is. You the one who’s been making Minyard actually play his part occasionally?”

    Neil shrugs, then nods. He doesn’t really think anyone can make Andrew Minyard do anything, but the statement is more true than not.

    “Huh,” Wymack says. “Alright. You let me know if you need anything, and see if you can convince him to act rather than just speak.”

    “Pretty tall order,” Neil mutters.

    Wymack snorts out a laugh. “Don’t I know it.”

    Summary

    Eric Bittle's To-Do List:

    1.) Frame Masters in Library and Information Science diploma and send to Mama, because she never understood the lack of sleep and abuse of caffeine, but she sent cookbooks and money for good chocolate, bless her.
    2.) Throw away every last highlighted article, graded paper, and syllabus, because they are no longer needed, thank the sweet Lord.
    3.) Promote the library's new periodic reading series, because it wasn't the capstone project for nothing.
    4.) Harass Boston Bruins star Jack Zimmermann into taking a picture for @BPLWestEnd to promote the reading of his new children's book, Jacky's Bad Days.
    5.) Do not ogle Boston Bruins star Jack Zimmermann's ass.
    6.) Fail step five. Repeatedly.

    Summary

    It’s the push of a well-disciplined body into exactly the right direction, a smooth kata of one, two, three, giterdone. A well executed slapshot, a triple salchow, hell, even a quarterback sneak – it’s all the same thing, in the end, all driven by the same kind of passion that gets people on their feet and screaming.

    Or: a story about sports, closets and finding yourself, in the end.

    The theory of extrapolative synchronization of the mirror neurons was debunked back when he was still in his teens, so Jack is reluctant to mention that he can smell Bitty's pies baking from across campus.
