    Summary

    Caleb and Essek both work on the same research project in Leylas Kryn’s lab, who Essek betrayed by leaking information to the Cerberus Assembly, consequently breaking Caleb’s trust before they ever met. But that isn’t the important part. No, the important part is that Frumpkin adores Essek and Caleb doesn’t know what to make of it. Especially when Essek starts sleeping over more often after one fateful, whiskey-fueled night.

    OR: Frumpkin teaches Caleb to trust and Essek to love, but they get up to their own dumbassery without help.

    Summary

    "There's never enough time," Keyleth murmured, her eyes feeling wet, and Essek closed his own as a tear trailed down his cheek. "One or one hundred years, it's never enough time."

    "No," Essek agreed, and he held out his hand. Keyleth took it, lacing their fingers together, and they fell into silence for the rest of the evening.

    Summary

    Essek couldn’t help the impossibly fond smile that turned the corners of his lips, pausing to commit everything to memory. The gentle flick of Frumpkin’s tail. Essek’s own worn, oversized sweater Caleb had liberated from his wardrobe. The way those stray locks of auburn hair tumbled over his face and moved on each breath. The soft, barely there part of his lips. The swoop of his eyelashes over the dusting of freckles across his cheeks. All of it.

     

    It knocked the breath out of Essek’s lungs, the physical ache in his chest as the reminder of how much he loved this foolishly predictable man slammed into him. Caleb, who tried to busy himself until far too late an hour, waiting for him to come home.

    Summary

    The music swelled, elegantly matched pairs spinning past each other across the floor where the dance carried them. Weaving behind the pillars and braziers of glowing coals lining the hall, Caleb scanned over the shifting sea of guests for his husband. His husband. Oh gods.

    It still sounded strange. His husband. Good, decidedly good, but strange, making his heart stumble over itself dangerously. The thought put the most fragile, fluttering sensation in his chest that he had yet to put words to and a stupid grin on his face when he wasn’t being careful. And he was presently being exceptionally careful. These nations were allies, technically, but their elite—his guests—bared their teeth at one another more than they did smile. If they made it through the night without any bloodshed at this anniversary of the peace, that alone would be worth celebrating.
