    Summary

    Kent has a pretty good life. It’s been a couple years since the Aces last won a cup, but he’s still at the height of his career. He has an apartment with a stunning view over Vegas, a best friend who’s always dragging him to basketball games, a cat to cuddle with, and more money than he could ever spend.

    Everything is fine.

    So it won’t be a problem at all if he strikes up a friendship with that guy he meets at the All-Star party.

    ----

    Tomas enjoyed the years he spent in Minnesota, but he’s ready for a new life in a different city. It means he’ll be even further from his friends and family in Quebec, and he’s not sure he’s going to adapt well to the desert. But he’ll have his new job to distract him, and he’s never minded the challenge of developing a new circle of friends and acquaintances.

    He doesn’t expect Kent Parson to be part of that.

    Summary

    For the past month, the man with the baby and the sad blue eyes has been stopping in for a cup of coffee an hour before closing. He always sits in an overstuffed chair in the corner and drinks his coffee while his baby sleeps next to him in the stroller. Sometimes he pulls a book out from the diaper bag he carries with him; other times he just stares straight ahead as if in a daze. He never asks for a refill, always respectfully gathers his things and leaves ten minutes before the shop officially closes. Eric desperately wants to ask him what his story is.

    Summary

    In the weeks after the Stanley Cup, many things went unsaid.

    “I don’t want to comment on Jack Zimmermann’s private life,” Kent practiced into the mirror. He shook his head. “I’m not able to—I’m not the one who—fuck.”

    “I didn’t want to keep y’all waiting for so long, so to make it up, I’ve come up with two new—no, no…” Bitty closed his eyes, took a breath, and put on his best smile for his camera. “Y’all probably already figured out I’ve turned off the comments for now—hah.”

    “I don’t remember,” Jack said when he meant he couldn’t find the right words. It was close enough. What did it matter? It was a different him, back when they called him Zimms.

    Summary

    Everything stops. There's no sound, not even the sound of the blood that should be rushing in Eric's ears. He can feel the Earth stop turning. The sun goes dark, and for a second Eric knows what it's like to simply cease existing, to be sucked into a vacuum of silence. He's negative space, he's insignificant particles floating in nothing at all.

    "What happened?"
