    Summary

    The first time Héctor left, Imelda had been sure he'd come back. The second time he leaves, she's certain he won't.

     

    With no way of knowing his picture would be placed on the ofrenda, Héctor says his goodbyes and disappears rather than let his family watch him slowly wither away. Which is fine, Imelda tells herself. Just fine. Until somehow she finds herself at the bank of the river, staring into Shantytown, determined to find her husband and bring him home.

    Summary

    He remembers an intensity of feelings but not a lot of words.  He recalls drunken laughter with mates, sunny days and shy smiles, shit weed and tattoo parlours, cold sheets and burning touches.  Harry recalls a fantasy where real life took a backseat, where all that mattered was that they were young and alive.

    At some point, Harry got scared.  He needed something he could hold on to, something he could be sure of.  But the more he dug for reassurance, the more Zayn clammed up.

    And the more they f*cked.

    Maybe Zayn saved his words for his books when he should have spoken them aloud.  Maybe Harry should have ended it better instead of running away like a coward.

    Then again, maybe he should just stop dwelling on the past.


    Or the one where Harry gets cold feet.  Three years later, Harry’s an editor and Zayn is the new writer he’s been assigned to work with.  

    They have a lot more than just a book to work out.
