    Summary

    and there are some like us,
    just walking, making our feet move ahead of us,
    a little bored, a little lost, a little angry,
    walking as though we were really going somewhere,
    walking as if there was something to see at Adelaide or maybe on King,
    something that will give a fair return for this use of shoe-leather,
    something that will make us smile with a strange new
    happiness, a lost but recovered joy.

    - Raymond Souster, “Yonge Street Saturday Night”

    Summary

    “Good morning,” Michael says. 

    “What the hell did you do?” Alex asks, exasperated.

    (or: There were times, in some of the lower moments of the past however-many-days it’s been, where Michael had thought about what it might’ve been like to share this time loop with someone. He never imagined— well, he never imagined it’d be Alex.)

    Summary

    “When do you leave?”

    Alex hangs his head when he says, “Tomorrow morning.”

    A hysterical laugh bubbles out of Michael’s chest.

    “So—So, what, after three years I get one night with you?” he asks, despising the tears that well in his eyes, the tremble in his voice.

    It’s not enough. Michael’s not sure any amount of time would ever be enough, but if he’s going to tear open his heart for Alex Manes again he’d hoped he’d get more than a single night to enjoy it.
