    Summary

    Went gripped Richie’s hand a bit tighter for a minute, envisioning his burst of energy dashing over to the other boy, accidentally knocking him over, making his serious little face scrunch up with tears and the inevitable meltdown from Mrs Kaspbrak. Instead, he was surprised when Richie slipped out of his grip, and barrelled over to the boy as he had feared, but instead of colliding with him (he’d just started a growth spurt that left him as ungainly as a toddler) he halted just before him, his mud-splashed blue and orange Keds leaving tiny marks on the carpet.

    Summary

    After Derry, Richie is spiraling. He's drinking too much, sleeping too little, and still trying to get a handle on his grief and guilt, so maybe it makes sense that he's been experiencing things that seem... odd: cold spots, shadows in the mirror, recurring nightmares where Eddie tries desperately to tell him something.

    He does his best to convince himself that he's just imagining it, but then he gets a phone call from Patty Uris and discovers that he's not the only one being haunted by a presence that can't seem to leave.

    Together, they go back to Derry to face their ghosts, both literal and figurative.

    Summary

    “His parents don’t take care of him,” Eddie had told Bill, shaking his head, “He’s probably holed up in his room with a flop sweat, and neither of his parents have ever been bothered to help him. We should go see him.”

    “G-Go see him?” Bill asked, alarmed, “I d-don’t mind, b-b-but I thought you’d n-never -”

    “He’s sick! Richie’s sick, Bill,” Eddie insisted, thinking Bill was not nearly as upset as he ought to be, “Richie’s sick, and no one’s gonna take care of him, if we don’t.”

    Summary

    Young Richie tilts his head, smirks, and announces, “I knew you’d stay pretty. Are we good, then?”

    “Uh,” Eddie hesitates, noticing the way Richie’s hold has gone strict, and hard around his arm again, “Good? What do you mean?”

    “You have a wedding ring on!” young Richie observes cheerfully, pointing at Eddie’s free hand, “So, it becomes legal? People know?”

    “Know what?” Eddie wonders.

    “Eddie,” Richie says too softly, “Please. Stop. We need to leave.”

    “We’re married, aren’t we?”

    The first shoe is dropped, and Eddie watches in shock as young Richie steps aside, to show the fresh ‘R + E,’ he’s carved into the wood.
