    Summary

    And now here she is, driving Greg’s car deep into the night, the passing street lights just barely illuminating the deserted roads and Pearl wants to lie to herself. Wants to say this is nothing more than a social gathering, two people, well, one person and a gem, meeting for a casual conversation, perhaps a drink of juice or something just as revolting.

    But another phone vibration sounds out in the otherwise silence, and the anticipation, the anxiety knotting in her stomach overpowers any lie she could attempt.

    Summary

    “Of course,” Jon says, “The use of evergreen trees in worship dates back far before the first Christian—whoops!”

    That last as he slides off the armrest, his full weight landing sprawled across Martin’s thighs.

    Summary

    “You said – you said we were going home,” Martin says softly.

    “I did,” says Jon, and is grateful that Martin doesn’t comment on him calling the Archives home. “I – I don’t really know where to go. I, uh, I don’t have a flat anymore, I don’t think. We could find a hotel?”

    “Let’s go to my place,” says Martin. His hand squeezes Jon’s, more gently than before. Most importantly, Jon notes, he doesn’t let go.

    Jon and Martin go home for a little while.
