    Summary

    The murmuring of the crowd withers into a concerned hush as Bennett kneels beside the body. He touches the preacher’s sun-scarred wrist, then his swollen neck. The congregation knows what Bennett will say before he says it; they can see it in the sudden deflation of his posture, and his low, stern exhale of disappointment.

    Bennet stands up slowly, leaning heavily on his cane to steady himself.

    “It seems,” he says, in a tone suggesting some great and terrible inconvenience, “that we shall have to find a new preacher.”

    Summary

    The thing is, Zayn is almost overwhelmingly certain that he’s only ever fallen in love four times but he thinks this is the only one that actually counts

    (alternately: Nothing about Zayn is traditional, especially not the way he falls in love with Liam, or everything before and after that)

    Summary

    “How’d it start?”

    Zayn wipes at his cheeks and stares at the carpet while he speaks. “Everything… everything was good at first, yeah? Great even, I can’t exactly pinpoint when things got bad. It all happened to slowly for me to actually pick up. It… it just started with the small insults and some yelling but like, it just got worse and then it was all to late.”

    (Or where Zayn made it out of a bad relationship alive but you never come out of those things completely unscratched, do you?)

    Summary

    He steadies a hand to the back of Zayn’s head and kisses him like all of the words in his mouth aren’t brilliant enough. He smears them over Zayn’s lips and hopes every single one of them reminds Zayn that Liam’s been in love with him since they were teenage hurricanes. Just before they were eighteen.

    (Or: they've been tucked into each other's side since they were five years old... and Liam's been a little in love with that and much more since then)
