    Summary

    And suddenly Martin can feel his tongue, and sense each swell of his lungs. He realises how sore his neck and lower back are after months of hunching over a computer. The suit jacket he wears, has worn every day for weeks, is too tight on his upper arms.
    Oh, god. He is in a room with Jonathan Sims.
    “You’re really suggesting this,” Martin says, voice pulled thin.
    “Yes.” Jon does not hesitate.
    “You would- actually do it?”
    “I would.”
    “Why?”
    Because love is blind, says something cliché and cruel in the pit of his gut. Christ, he never was much of a poet, was he?

    Or,

    When Jon asks Martin to Quit the Archives with him, Martin says yes. In the Scottish Highlands, they hurt, and they heal.

    Summary

    “I had a feeling.”

    The music restarts, but there’s something off with the record—it’s scratchy, fuzzy still. Dankovsky doesn’t look at him, gone suddenly pale. “Feeling?”

    “That I left something behind.”

    “What?”

    Artemy takes a breath. “You, I think.”

    Or: a breaking point.

    Summary

    What mattered were the facts, plain and simple as they were: Artemy had kept coming back at ungodly hours to use his bed. The second or third time, someone had turned towards the wrong side and decided that the need for warmth was greater than confusion and disgust. Someone else didn't protest or maybe complied and their bodies merged at the seams, and everything became hot and silent and good, for an hour or two.

    “You could have just asked.” he whispered, like it was nothing, like he wasn’t breaking the rules.

    They weren’t supposed to talk about it. They weren’t supposed to talk, even if it sounded natural on Artemy’s lips, even if felt good down his back.

    “No. I couldn’t.”
