    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

    Seeing him here, in New York, surrounded by the deep browns and golds of Hobart and Blackwell, is so alien to me I have to repress the urge to pinch myself like a child would after a dream. It looks incorrect, him standing here. Like someone has taken a pair of scissors to my memories of him, cut him out of his rightful place on the abandoned playground, and pasted him sloppily into a corner of my life where he doesn’t belong. Has it only been a few weeks? It feels like ages longer, like it’s been a decade, like we’re different people trying to see what exactly we liked about each other so much way back when.

    But then he says it again- “Potter.”- and that feeling vanishes as quickly as it arrived.

    “You came,” I say dumbly.

    He gives a cheery smirk that I don’t believe. “Promised I would.”

    “Troy will fall, and when it does, you must make certain that Hector is unharmed.”

    “Must I? Why?”

    “Because without him, you will never see home again, Odysseus.”
