    Summary

    Andrew has barely started reading the menu when someone else emerges from the kitchen—a boy around his own age, he guesses, with pretty, delicate features and tanned skin flecked here and there with the paler lines and splotches of fading scars. He’s got dark half-moons under his eyes, a brilliant scowl on his face, and he’s wearing an apron with a picture of a similarly pissed off-looking cat adorning the front pocket.

    He pokes Nicky in the shoulder with the floury rolling pin he’s brandishing like a baseball bat. “Oi,” he grunts. “What’s with the ruckus?”

    (or, Andrew and Neil meet in a cat café.)

    Summary

    Andrew is content with passing through college and having minimal interaction with other human beings, and he was succeeding. That is until his brother has him go out of his way to stop by the library, where he meets the smart-mouthed, redheaded, attractive barista named Neil who seems to be able to handle Andrew's passive-aggressive quips and fires his own right back. It's fine. Totally fine.

    But when this said Neil keeps appearing seemingly everywhere Andrew turns, when he realizes they seem to hang around the same people yet have somehow never met, when Neil bakes him dessert and makes him sugary drinks and asks him to paint his nails and wears eyeliner with lip gloss, Andrew realizes that, no, this is not fine.

    literally just the fluff content I need right now
