    Summary

    The Final Countdown plays in his head then, and he suddenly knows that there are only two options.

    Either A) Tony wrote this note counting down to the trick today when he was unceremoniously squished and crushed and Gob can’t think about that or B) Tony wrote this note counting down to his return.

    One option means that there’s a finite amount of Tony left in the world. One option means that Tony’s still here, that he’s somewhere, and he just needs to be found.

    Gob knows that feeling. And he doesn’t know when he started feeling this way, like maybe he could help someone (Tony Tony Tony) be found when he’s barely been able to find himself these past thirty odd years, but it’s an option now in a way that it never was before.

    Bookmark Notes:

    Gob has always been a little wary of Maeby, to tell the truth. She’s too much like him already, too tough and loud and scared behind her eyes. But now she’s standing in front of him, in an outfit he kind of doesn’t get, looking braver than he ever was at her age, like if he says yes to her question, she’ll help George Michael hit him again and again as much as he needs it.
    ---
    Gob can see her pout a little though, and it makes Gob wonder (did somebody say did somebody say please please please) if Lindsay and Tobias ever realized that they’re doing exactly to Maeby what Lucille and George did to Gob. If they ever wondered (please come back please come back please) why Maeby’s stunts keep escalating, why she gets louder and brighter, or if they just see her growing and assume it’s bigger and better.
    ---
    The pressure from his slightly too warm palm reminds him of Buster, who he really ought to visit in prison. He never knew what to do with Buster when he was a kid. Buster was so young and fragile and Gob at sixteen was breaking everything he touched. But now they’re older, and Buster’s already been arrested, and admittedly, three decades of Lucille’s brand of parenting probably did enough damage that Gob can’t make it worse.
    ---
    Loving Tony from a distance was one thing, but Gob knows that loving someone in person is completely different and that he sucks at it. Truly, deeply, sucks at it. Words come out jumbled and too harsh, actions meant to be a demonstration of how he’s feeling and what he wants to show the world tend to come crashing down in flames, often literally. Everyone he loves is left thinking he doesn’t have feelings, doesn’t care at all, when the problem has always been that he has too many all the time.

    Bookmark Notes:

    So sweet

     

    They’re sharing a sofa that’s a little too short for Gob but perfect for Tony. Tony shifts a little closer to him, and Gob feels a rush of happiness previously only associated with finding an unattended sandwich in the model home.

    He’d like to know what they’re supposed to do next, how to move from both of them being able to remember Cinco to not needing to remember Cinco, to have the kind of life where Tony is there all the time, not just on a bet or dare or revenge mission or kidnapping.
