    Summary

    It’s March and it’s too cold for Billy to be shirtless and wearing shorts, but he hadn’t noticed until Harrington appeared and made him hold still. Harrington can’t seem to stop looking at the bruises. “What’s it to you if I miss a little school, Harrington?” Billy asks. He feels goosebumps rising on his skin.

    “I don’t know,” Harrington snaps back, looking uncomfortable. He shifts his weight from one foot to the other. Plant your feet, Billy wants to scream at him. I’m going to bowl you over.

    Summary

    They built this thing from scratch, six years of it, built it from the ground up. Six years of fights and late nights and fucks and all the moments in between.

    Steve knew he was done for from the very beginning.

    Summary

    Billy’s fun, and Billy likes to fuck with him, and Steve likes being fucked with, apparently, which is why when Billy holds out the joint for him and then pulls it away as he reaches for it with a thoughtful look on his face Steve’s stomach swoops.

    Summary

    “I left the number for the family we’re staying with in California if you have any problems, but of course, you know he doesn’t--do much,” she says, and the ending is almost careful, but not particularly thoughtful, “So if you need anything, you should call, we just couldn’t bring him, you understand, and I think it’s important that Max get a break after everything, and we just couldn’t bring him, you know, and--”

    She’s still talking, but what she’s actually doing is walking down the crumbling steps, climbing into the passenger’s side of the truck, slamming the door shut, driving away, and--

    And Max is yelling out the window, “She means like, two weeks--” before they’re turning around the corner and--

    And Steve is standing on the front steps of Billy Hargrove’s house, keys jingling in his palm, thinking what the fuck?

    Summary

    Steve doesn’t realize it until July, until after everything has happened, but he’s known Billy Hargrove for years. He’s not sure how he figures it out. It’s sometime after stripping out of his destroyed Scoops uniform, but before scrubbing the blood off his face, before he digs into those bruises just hard enough to hurt. It’s not shocking or startling. It doesn’t knock him off his feet.

    &

    The red light turns green and Steve pulls through it. He’s looking straight ahead, out into the snow and the cold night air when he says, “He doesn’t remember.”

    He hears more than sees El shrug again. “No,” she says finally. “But he will.”

    -

    Steve remembers something important, but just barely. He has questions. In December, he gets to ask them. Billy--in the same concrete room the doctors have had him in since July--has questions too.
