    Summary

    He thought he’d hidden these feelings from himself, stowed them away in some dark corner and learned not to think about it. But the second Eddie peeked in from around the corner at the Jade and looked at Richie with those big, limpid pools of Christmas Orphan meets Bambi, and started rambling about gluten and cashews, it all came flooding back into focus. Richie has loved Eddie so long that it’s become an ache that goes beyond reason.

    Summary

    “What do you want?” He asks her, once he's close enough. At this distance she can see the freckles splayed across his cheeks and the way his hair curls at the edges where it's getting longer. It's not surprising that he's wary of strangers, but the iron edge of his voice speaks to something angrier. He's still the best option she's got.

    “A ride.” Clarke hopes her voice doesn't sound as bone weary as she feels. It doesn't pay to be weak out here. That's a lesson she learned the hard way, the scars of it permanently branded under her ribs.

    “Not in the market for a traveling companion,” he says, cold and dismissive, and steps around her to hoist the gas cans into the bed of the truck.

    Surviving was a trick for the apocalypse; finding something worth living for is the trick for after.

    Summary

    As his weight shifts across creaking floorboards and he pries open the window of the largest of the three bedrooms, Dick tries to picture himself living in the space. The impossible idea of furniture occupying it, the echoing beats of his footsteps and breathing that would be dampened by rugs and blankets and curtains once furnished. It's difficult. Dick leans out the window slightly, his breath a puff of white, and looks at the property from a different angle. He can almost see through the large oak tree to where the drive connects with the main road, and his drooping mailbox, and the aborted fence that he needs to add to one of his lists.

    He takes stock of the house, and feels a tenderness towards it that is slightly embarrassing - he wants to apologize for finding it wanting, for planning to change it, as though the wood of the floors under his feet were heaving sighs every time he moves across it and finds another thing that needs repair.
