    [ USED TO BE 'TABLE FOR TWO' ]

    Eddie Kaspbrak was 21 when he married Myra, and 25 when he realized he didn’t love her as much as he hoped he would.

    Living with Myra was like having the radio turned to static on full volume every single hour of the day, but at least he didn’t have to deal with crippling silence and the echoes of a life he wishes he had.

    Summary

    I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted.
    Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now.

     

     It's the late '80s, and Will Byers is coping with the loneliness of having left the Party behind. Somehow, through it all, he still has feelings for his childhood best friend, Mike Wheeler, though he's growing to regret that fact more and more with each passing day.

    It's the early '90s, and Mike Wheeler is coming to understand that there are some people worth losing your false sense of self for. But now that Mike and Will have moved onto college, has this realization come too late?

    Summary

    Eddie could see the layers and layers of tape he’d wrapped around the leg of Richie’s glasses over a month ago, shaped like a little cocoon. He reached out and touched it with the tip of his finger.

    “These don’t even sit straight anymore,” he said. “Why are you still wearing them?”

    Richie didn’t blink from behind the lenses until Eddie took his hand back.

    “I don’t know. My life is kind of a mess right now. They feel appropriate.”

    “Your life isn’t a mess, Rich.”

    “It really, really is.” Richie straightened, started talking with his hands when he said, “Hey, shouldn’t you be shouting? I feel like this would be easier if you were shouting.”

    “You said you’d take this seriously,” Eddie said.

    Summary

    "In theory, Eddie could have given him a laugh when Richie suggested that he join the annual Tozier trip. A pitying pat on the shoulder. A “Yeah, sure, I can definitely convince my mom that I won’t die on a trip with you. To a waterpark! Of all places!”

    To his own surprise, Eddie did none of those things."

    or

    eddie goes to a waterpark and spends half the time fighting hypochondriac thoughts and the other half figuring himself out, all through the help of richie.

    Summary

    The giant iron gates that separated the isolated mansion tucked between the hills and the small town of Derry, opened, and the kid who lived in that mansion joined Eddie's school in his junior year.

    Richie Tozier was certainly intimidating to look at the first glance; standing tall and somewhat gangly like a willow tree, impassive stares by dark, depthless eyes, and dark clothes to match.

    Despite the appearance, Richie was friendly and funny and much to Eddie's annoyance, his first crush. He just didn't know there was so much more below the surface of Richie Tozier than what was expressed.
