    Summary

    Dad comes back with two beers in hand. He hands one each to Even and me.

    “So how are your parents?” He asks.

    “Yeah. Good." Even says. "They have stopped coming here for summer. They're in the Seychelles right now.” He looks at me. “I came with friends this year.”

    “No girlfriend?”

    WTF, Dad?

    I cough and mumble, “Personal. Much. Dad?”

    “No." Even says. "No girlfriend. So.”

    I dare a glance at him and he is STARING RIGHT AT ME- like blue bright fucking arrows. I look away. I can’t govern what comes out of my dad’s mouth. Is that why he is looking at me like that? Why is he looking at me like that?

     ========

    Even has just finished University. He decides to spend summer at his parent's holiday house in the Norwegian countryside where he has been coming since childhood. He knows Isak, one of the locals, who has recently graduated from high school and is spending his break helping his dad out at his kayak shop.

    Two boys from different backgrounds, both embarking on new chapters in their lives who find their worlds intertwined during their holidays and on one particularly hot summer break.

    Summary

    After a bad break up, Isak goes on vacation to get away from his life for the holidays.

    Here, in a small cottage in Bergen, after agreeing to swap-houses with a stranger online, he expects to find peace in the solitude; to be able to spend a minute alone and just relax. He doesn't have to think about anything other than himself -- and really, he didn't think this through.

    When he's about to give up and head home, a midnight appearance from a stranger leaves him breathless and questioning everything he's ever known about love.

    And suddenly, it's not the same anymore.

     

     
    (loosely inspired by 'the holiday')

    Summary

    “So, Isak from Nissen, Sana’s friend. What happened that made you end up with a grown man in a tub?”

     

    ft. A first-year Isak and a third-year Even. Even obsesses over philosophers, trying to find the meaning in life. Isak is confused about who he is. They’re on different planes of life, but somehow, something deep within them feels pulled to one another.

    And as Isak climbs into the tub next to Even, taking the blunt from his fingers and pressing the side of his head against the cold tile walls, admiring this beautiful man before him, and somehow they end up in love, so be it.
