    Summary

    Richie wants to close his eyes, but no matter what he does, he can still see what he saw in the deadlights. Eddie’s blood. Richie’s fault. A lack of time and of everything else in the universe, too, but lacking fairness more than anything else, an abundance of cruelty ripped through their lives.

    Summary

    There’s something that he’s looking for. Richie picks up the cutout of a man’s eyes lying on his thigh. The piece is torn out without grace, with its edges fading into white and thinning at the ends. It’s the closest that Richie found to what he’s looking for, but looking at it now--

    “Richie!”

    How was it supposed to sound?

    Richie crushes it in his hand, grinding his teeth together in a mix of frustration and irritation.

    He’s already forgetting what he is searching for.

     
     

    The 27 years in between, where Richie searches for a person he had long forgotten.

    Summary

    The document is in a project proposal format, complete with a neat little table of contents, an executive summary, a list of the issues to be covered, headers and sub-headers, even the occasional chart. Richie doesn't get to skim these right away because his eyes are locked on the title of the proposal.

    Summary

    Richie awoke with a jolt, fight-or-flight instincts kicked into overdrive, heart pounding in his chest like it was going to pop. He scrambled in confusion, not sure where he was, not sure who he was, fumbling around for his glasses on a nightstand that wasn’t his in a frantic attempt to bring the world around him into focus. When he finally slipped them on, the crack in the left lens brought the memories crashing back over him. He was in Derry. He’d lost Eddie. And he was on a shitty mattress, holding Eddie’s sweatpants, wearing Eddie’s hoodie.

     

     

    And Eddie was standing in his hotel room.


    Or, the one where Eddie comes back as a zombie and Richie falls hard into that "Little Shop of Horrors" lifestyle.

    Summary

    They had been close to twenty when Richie had leaned in close, stopping nervously right in front of Eddie’s face. The smell of tar from a hot roof hung in the air, and Eddie had turned away. We shouldn’t, he had said. Let’s not ruin what we have, Rich.

    Eddie was difficult, hard to love. Ragged edges that pulled your skin raw. Richie would be disappointed and bored, and he would leave. Staying friends was easier.
    Now they were doing this dance around each other, neither of them wanting to push too hard. Eddie knew he was leading; he could feel how Richie was following and slowing down when his feet got out of line. Finding the beat again.

    Just a few steps forward and a few steps back. 1-3-5-7, moving to the beat and counting along.
