    Summary

    “Promise me you’ll come. Eventually. Just…come see me. Sit still with me for a while.” He holds back everything else he wants to say. Get a place with me. Run the shop with me. Laugh and make dinner with me. Let me wake up next to you every morning and not have to worry if I’m never going to see you again.

    “I promise.” Boris says it like it was already obvious, something that didn’t even need to be said. “Of course I promise.”

    Summary

    You think you could chart the whole scarred expanse of him: dime-shaped black mark above his collar bone, birth mark. Neat circle at the crook of his left elbow, cigarette burn (his father’s). Neat circle at the top of his right calf, cigarette burn (his). Shiny-white gash inching its way from his stomach to the waistband of his underwear, appendix removal. (You’d had to call the ambulance.) There are new additions, but you’re so sure he would tell you everything about them if you asked that it already feels as though you know where he got those scars after all. He would offer you the story of his body like saying grace before supper.

    Summary

    He knew why. He wished that he did not but deep down he knew. They both did, at one point or another. Maybe not in words, but it was between them all the same. The way that they knew that the sky was blue and how the sun-warmed sand burned like fire. Theo loved Boris and perhaps, although he was a fool to believe it, maybe Boris loved him a little bit too.

    Alternatively: the soulmate au in which every significant person in your life leaves a smudge of colour on you.
