    Summary

    When Richie sits down beside Eddie at their company's First Aid course, he thinks, oh, he's a little cute. Cute in the way a forty year old man can be, which turns out to be a lot. Probably not that hot, but hot in the kind of way someone is when you've known them for years and years, when you’ve kind of forgotten what they look like because they’re just them, you know?

    Eddie is a forty year old man whose wife is his best friend (which probably wouldn’t be so bad if she weren’t also his only friend), so he’s just excited he’s found someone new to hang out with. But when Myra suggests that maybe Richie doesn’t want to be just friends, he finds himself

    (confused scared happy what the fuck)

    "Eddie, you think I'm pretentious?" Richie says. "That's so cute. You're literally wearing Belgian loafers."

    Summary

    Eddie often felt like he and Richie were two magnets, repelling each other fiercely until one of them twisted the right way and suddenly they were slamming together brutally, yelling (and laughing, or yell-laughing, or what was the difference anyway?) at the top of their lungs. Eddie wanted to be around him all the time, just like when they were kids, but the feeling felt violent. Like when you see a cute baby or a puppy and you feel so savagely endeared that you want to take the adorable little thing in your hands and just fucking crush it.

    Summary

    Sometime between Eddie’s first apartment after Myra and his second, he adopted a fucked up looking rat of a dog that Richie thought might be some sort of chihuahua, but with longer, stringy patches of hair. The dog’s name was Rager, and he had a broken front tooth and sometimes had to wear what looked like a wide cloth belt but was actually a diaper, just so that he wouldn’t spontaneously piss all over Eddie’s New York City apartment. The apartment in question cost $2550 a month and absolutely should have housed an art dealer and his two greyhounds, but instead Eddie paid the rent so that Rager could live in style on the Upper East side.

    Summary

    The sun in the afternoon filters through the window above their kitchen sink so warmly Eddie wants to stand in it like one of Richie’s cats. He watches the way they curl up on the wooden floor bathed in golden sunlight, specks of dust floating in the air above them. Eddie wishes he could bottle the feeling and drink it.

    After Derry, Richie and Eddie stay in New York for a while.
