    Summary

    “Hi, hi, sorry, excuse me,” the guy says. “Weird question, but would you mind doing me a massive favor?”

    Eddie squints at him. It’s not exactly well-lit in here, but he’s still about ninety percent sure that this guy was not with Emilio’s bachelor party when they came in. “Do I know you?”

    “Um. No,” the guy says. He’s got wide blue eyes and a nervous smile and a salt-rimmed margarita glass clutched in one large hand. As Eddie watches, he glances over his shoulder, then hunches down like he’s trying to hide. Given the size of him, it’s more ridiculous than effective. “So this is going to sound completely nuts, and I promise I’ll explain, but can I throw this frozen margarita in your face and call you a jerk?”

    Summary

    Buck said, "Look, I'm sorry I overheard that because it's personal, and you should be able to decide who gets to have that part of you." Eddie came out of his hunch a little and looked him in the eyes, and Buck felt a zing of giddy accomplishment. It maybe made him stupid. "But to be honest, I'm really flattered that Pepa thought a punk like me could get a guy like you."

    Eddie's eyes went huge, and under the sodium lights Buck could see his ears turning red.

    Shit. Back off, back off, Buck told himself. He said, "I mean, you look like you know how to file your taxes," and immediately wanted to smack himself in the face.

    Summary

    You want him to keep you, shame whispered when it reached his ear, making Thomas purse his lips and suppress a shudder as his fingers curled around the tea canister he had stored up top earlier that morning. You want him to keep you, and that is a far more terrible thing.

    It is shameful fantasy and nothing but to desire Edward Little the way he does. Thomas, more fool him, will take that secret to his grave.

    Summary

    Buck takes it to the grave.
    He doesn’t mean to. It’s just—with all that time he spent teasing death, all the motorcycles and factory fires and blood-coated grenades—death gets impatient, in the end. Right as he’s starting to take life seriously. After he puts his name on the lease, buys life a ring, like, I’m in this for the long haul. Death gets jealous, and Buck falls through a second-story floor onto a derelict wrought-iron stair rail, and his femoral artery begins the quick but methodical work of leaking out the next fifty or sixty years of his life onto the charred tile floor.
