    Summary

    He has so many imaginary lists now, so many things he needs to keep track of. They only just went back to school three weeks ago, which doesn’t seem to be doing wonders for Philip’s mood, but Lukas’s surprise is finally ready. Completely ready, not painted and close, not a few boards from done, not lacking a ladder but complete other than that.

    No, it’s done, and he hasn’t been so proud of something in a while. He’s even happier because his dad helped him finish it. He knew he had an advantage, since he wasn’t supposed to exert himself, but he was so dead-set on making this happen that Dad saw the determination in his eyes and wasn’t going to let this father-son bonding opportunity slide into the ether. They were mostly silent as they built, but they worked as a unit, knowing what the other needed and how they could help, and Dad didn’t balk when Lukas revealed that this was for Philip. For the two of them, together.

    “Well,” Dad had said. “Let’s make sure we keep the splinters at bay.”

    Summary

    Lukas pulls Philip into a hug. They don’t say anything either—Philip just closes his eyes and holds on to Lukas, the two of them swaying back and forth.

    You’re amazing. I mean, you’re awesome. The words echo in his ears. Times past, love growing in the midst of fear and uncertainty. All that horror giving way to softness, dedication, the kind of relationship he could only dream about. He realizes he doesn’t need to focus hard on all this to keep it in place. He’s found something special, and it’s simply part of his life now.

    “Let’s go get married, babe,” Philip says, kissing Lukas’s neck.

    “Yeah,” Lukas says, when they break apart. “Yeah, that sounds fun.”

    Summary

    Central Park always feels like a different city in and of itself, and they set up the art exhibit in the middle of Sheep Meadow. Only four other kids got picked for this—Philip said that ten kids aced it but Mr. Wood’s park permit wouldn’t allow that many, but he still got picked to go. Mr. Woods is here and he seems like an exciting sort of guy, really amped to be doing something like this, and he’s exactly the kind of artsy teacher Lukas always pictured when he thought about college.

    Mr. Woods blew up Philip’s five main photos and a few of the smaller ones are on their own canvas, and they set them up on easels with little descriptions on the corners. Lukas steps back and admires the set-up, how nice it all looks.

    “People are already watching,” Philip says, once everybody is ready and standing by their work. He grabs Lukas’s elbow and seems nervous, twisting in on himself, trying to make himself smaller.

    “Good,” Lukas says, kissing Philip’s temple. “Your photos deserve to be seen. Even though they’re all me looking like an idiot.”

    Summary

    “I’m really proud of you,” Helen says, running her hand through his hair. “You two, well—you’ve—you’ve accomplished a lot. You didn’t let anything stop you, and I’m really, really proud of everything you’ve done. The man you grew to be.”

    Philip dips his head down and smiles softly, shaking his head. “We didn’t—” He knows he’s about to insult himself, and he’s so used to saying we, but doesn’t want to insult Lukas too. “I didn’t do anything,” he says. “Just, you know—normal shit.”

    Helen shakes her head at him. “You’re anything but normal, kid. You’re incredibly special and I just…don’t want you to forget it. She’d be so, so proud of everything you are.”

    He’s been thinking about his mom a lot lately. He wishes she was here so, so badly. He feels emotion welling up in his throat and he laughs to quell it, looking up at Helen. “Getting sentimental with me, huh?”

    “Of course,” she says, pulling him in and kissing the top of his head. “It’s graduation day!”
