    Summary

    Eddie stares at the number emblazoned across his computer screen. It seems threatening, almost, the blue numbers standing out on the page. As if the contrast wasn’t enough, they’re also underlined. It seems like it’s mocking him. Here it is, you fucking weirdo, front and center. This is what you came for.

    Because, of course, displayed across his laptop is the number to a phone sex hotline.

    ---

    Richie is a phone sex operator, Eddie is trying to figure things out. It gets.... complicated.

    Summary

    Over the tannoy, an announcement. Something about a gate change for a Delta Airline flight. Nothing important. Pulled out of this moment of pure focus, Eddie falters and loses any semblance of the bravery Richie so passionately ascribed him in the sewers.

    He stabs the cuttlefish with one chopstick and shoves it into his mouth.

    Maybe he should have written Richie a fucking letter. It would have been easy enough to slip that into his jacket pocket when he isn't looking, or at least easier than having to look him in the eyes over plates of sushi and say, Hey, bro, I'm in love with you.

    He probably shouldn't call him bro while he says it.

    "Nothing," he says, feeling like an idiot. "Never mind."

     

    OR:
    Eighteen months after not dying in the sewers underneath Derry, Eddie tries to tell Richie how he feels.

    Summary

    “So, I’m a barista, right? Well, recently, I was on the job and this guy came up to order. A totally normal looking dude, about my age, dresses like some kind of underling corporate schmuck. He ordered a small black coffee with a blueberry flavor shot.” Richie paused and paced across the stage.

    “The thing about this order is that I’m completely obsessed with it. I get plenty of strange and elaborate orders from people every day, but the thing about this coffee is that it wasn’t elaborate. It wasn’t some soy frappe one and a half shot hazelnut monstrosity, it was the most basic form of coffee, with a single totally random little add on. It was the order of a simple, regular man who has something wrong with him.”

    Summary

    "No, I would've remembered this," Richie says, folding his hand around the un-bandaged parts of Eddie's hand. The gold ring glints on his pinky.

    Eddie explains how he stabbed himself and Richie nearly dies. His laughter sounds like someone peeling out on fresh blacktop.

    "Okay, yeah, hyuck it up, you goofy bitch," Eddie says.

    "How many times is that? Four? The universe wants you to be penetrated, Eds," Richie says. "It cannot get enough of you."
