    Summary

    Theo just wants to ask his next-door neighbor to have quieter sex. In return he gets his life turned upside down, a new best friend, a lot of heartache, and maybe even a kiss or two.

    (or: on broken edges and flimsy walls, cracks and nonsense, finding love in the in-between)

    Summary

    Sometimes Boris wishes he knew how long he had left with Theo before he left to return to New York, maybe he would’ve done things differently—but it wouldn’t have changed the way he fell in love with him.

    In other words; the occasions on which Boris realises he loves Theo, and there’s absolutely nothing he can do about it.

    Summary

    "This is better than dreams. You are better than any dream." He says simply, like it's a fact, like Theo is the only thing he could ever want enough to dream about, day and night. Like to want anything good in this world at all is to want him.

    Summary

    “What shall we do, then?” Boris asks, a smile on his face.

    “Do we have to do something?” Theo asks. He smiles in return— more muted, uneasy.

    The streets only get busier when the holidays close in. Tourists, visiting families, traveling businessmen. But the crush of bodies swarming the streets of New York doesn’t make Theo feel anonymous or invisible. There are only more people around to observe him, waiting for a slip.

    “Of course,” Boris says. His smile inches further up his face, knocked crooked across his cheeks. “Would be a waste not to. Is our first Christmas back together again.”

    Summary

    ーand in my unfamiliar babbling-and-wanting-to-talk state I can’t stop myself from blurting the thing on the edge of my tongue, the thing I’d never said, even though it was something we both knew well enough without me having to say it out loud to him in the streetー which was, of courseー

    “I love you.”

     

    Theo tries one more time. Boris gets in the cab. A New York story.
