    Summary

    It is impossibly loud and impossibly quiet, both at once. There is that familiar unease, of feeling monumental things, and being unable to sort them into proper boxes. Reki pauses. The silk fall of Langa’s hair slips through his fingers like water.

    He lets out a shaky sigh. Wow. This is just great. His heart is doing a whole circus act. There are flips and aerials and cartwheels. The whole shebang. But what the hell, this—this is no good. Reki is losing his mind. Langa has to be doing this on purpose. 

    Say it again, Reki thinks despite himself, want barreling through him with dizzying violence. Say it again, and again, and again.

    (In which Reki’s love language is touch, and Langa’s is praise, and it goes just as well as you think it would.)

    Summary

    Reki shivers at the soft vibration of Langa’s voice, his lips on Reki’s neck. There’s that feeling again—the swoop, gathering every nerve in his body tense, and the long, plummeting fall.

    Summary

    “I didn’t win.” Langa sounds resolute, and his eyebrows furrow in the adorable way they do when he’s determined. He had that expression every time he tried to pop an ollie and failed. Reki replays the memory of that expression breaking into a grin when he’d finally managed to complete the move every night when he can’t sleep because he hasn’t gotten his goodnight text from Langa.

    “Miya told me you won. Even sent a picture.”

    “I didn’t,” Langa repeats, and he throws down his board with a deafening clatter in the silent skate park. He sits unbearably close to Reki with his long legs crossing over Reki’s board, practically trapping his ex best friend between his thighs as he rests them on the deck. “You weren’t there, so I didn’t win the tournament. Not without you.”
