    Summary

    “I never considered it waiting around,” Miles says. “I never expected it to become anything more. You were giving me all that you were capable of, and—maybe it wasn’t exactly in the form I hoped for, but it was more than enough.”

    “Miles,” says Phoenix, giddy. “That’s fucked up.”

    Summary

    He texted Phoenix that night: I have business in LA. I would love to see you while I am in the city. Both of those statements were true: he wanted very badly to see Phoenix, and he did indeed have pressing and important business in Los Angeles. Business with brown-blue eyes and a newly adopted daughter and a sweetly crooked smile that made sunflowers bubble up in Miles’s throat until it was hard to breathe.

    Summary

    As you are no doubt aware, one of the most vital aspects of people management is ensuring one makes the time for one's line reports via an annual review, wrote Peter Lukas, to Jonathan Sims. It's important we understand your performance over the last year and your goals and objectives for the coming one. I wouldn't want you to feel unsupported by Institute management.

    How many bottles of whisky have you got left in your desk drawers? messaged Jon, to Daisy.

     

    Jon has his annual review. He feels exactly as supported by Institute management as Peter Lukas hopes he will.

    Summary

    “Come in, Martin,” he says, not looking up from his notes. 

    “Hi, Jon,” he says, and Jon stops writing at the sound of his voice. “We’re out of the green tea, but we’ve got lemon?” 

    Jon looks at him. Martin smiles at him in his usual tentative way as he sets the mug of tea down on Jon’s desk. Heat spikes so sharply in his gut that he twitches with it. 

    “Thank you, Martin,” he says, mouth dry, and he stands up. 

    “Oh,” he says, sounding almost surprised. He smiles again. “No-- no problem-- um, what are you--” 

    Jon takes Martin by the shoulders, leans up on the tips of his toes, and kisses him.

    Summary

    “This is the Magnus Institute, not a creative writing course at university. If that doesn’t agree with him, he can leave.” There was a thud and the sound of rifling tapes. “He can take his bloody tea with him.”

    Martin’s fingers tightened on the saucer. Oh.

    -

    Martin knows better than to talk about it. It's fine. He's fine.
