    Summary

    Beneath the table, Jack’s hand squeezes around Kent’s knee. And -- Kent forgets. For just a few seconds, he forgets that they can’t be together, that Jack doesn’t want him in that way, that he’s trying to move on.

    “We’re friends, right?” Jack says.

    “Yeah, Zimms,” he says. “We’re friends.”

     

    Or: Kent and Jack are friends, then friends-with-benefits, then maybe something more. Kent isn’t sure.

    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

    The program finally starts and she can’t stop herself from grinning stupidly when she hears his voice. They ask about her and she leans forward, listening avidly.

    “We’re very happy to be together for the next eight years,” he tells them.

    Connor punches the air. “Hell yeah we are,” she tells the screen.

    “Have you guys just been texting each other happy faces emojis constantly?” Sid asks.

    “Yeah, lots of kisses,” Leon says and Connor freezes.

    Summary

    Connor shifts so he’s more properly cuddling with Ryan, resting his cheek against Ryan’s chest. “This is nice,” he murmurs sleepily. “Too bad we can’t do it all the time.”

    Ryan hesitates, then throws caution to the wind. “That’s also an option. It’s my job to be whatever boyfriend experience you want from me.”

    Summary

    Nate should just go get on the bus. Waiting here wasn’t going to get Tyson onto the bus any faster and it wasn’t like Tyson needed him. He was down in medical with Gabe, who was looking after him. Who, as his boyfriend, had the right to look after him. Nate, the best friend, did not have the same rights. That was fine.

    He waited anyway. He rearranged his gear and picked up everything of Tyson’s he could and got Tyson’s suit out so it’d be easier to get him into it when he finally turned up. Then he played games on his phone until, finally, the door opened and Gabe and Tyson came in. Gabe paused for a second at the door, arm around Tyson. He got it. He knew what Nate felt about Tyson. Like recognised like and all that shit. For a second, Nate wished he hadn’t waited.
