    Summary

    In this story, Elio visits Oliver in New York, after hearing his wife has passed away from a heart attack.

    "At Christmas, I longed - no, ached - to hear his voice and for seven straight days I would make sure I was in earshot of the phone when it wasn’t nighttime in New York or nighttime in Italy, as I was terrified of having to miss a second of his voice.

    Oh Oliver, I always wanted to be the one to answer the phone, just to chit chat for two minutes, and wish you Merry Christmas, all the while trying to find a voice in myself to beg you to visit us in Italy someday, I can’t live another year without seeing you, I can’t connect with anyone in the same way, I have not been myself, I don’t know what to do with this body. Can you come back to collect your name from my heart and bring it back to the States with you, throw it in the ocean like ash, so I don’t ever have to think of your name in combination with mine again?"

    Summary

    When Charles meets Erik on a midnight train to London, it’s like all of his Christmases and birthdays have come at once – until Erik opens his mouth, and reveals he cannot speak a word of English.

    It isn’t easy to pursue a relationship with someone you need to play Pictionary with just to chat to, but with a little help from Charles’ telepathy, the two language-barrier lovers are determined to make it work.
