    Summary

    Part of him knew it was a mistake, that he was overreacting, falling into old patterns, putting Patrick into the same columns as the ones who came before him. The rational part of his brain knew this. But the stronger part, the part that had been broken for so long, the part still covered with fragile cracks, over ruled.

    What if David wasn't so sure about everything. What if in the end, the idea of having gone through with anything at Jake's scared him so badly that he walked away?

    Summary

    It’s an attractive thought, that changing your life could be as easy as doing a hard thing.

    Summary

    “Well I’m going to run some errands,” David says, brushing a stray bit of fuzz off his navy blue sweater. “But we’re still on for birthday dinner?”

    “Yeah,” Patrick nods. He’s pretty sure David knows the annual birthday surprise party stopped being a surprise after year two or three. David doesn’t even inflict fictional catastrophes on the café as a decoy anymore. But Patrick plays along anyway. In some ways their whole partnership is built on playing along.

    OR David and Patrick have been business partners for a decade until, on Patrick's 40th Birthday, everything changes.

    Summary

    Patrick is just getting ready to leave when he spots him across the bar. The man has his head thrown back in laughter, the lines of his neck long and graceful. His smile is its own gas light, cutting through the smoke of the bar like sunshine off the Seine, a literal impossibility at this late hour. Patrick can’t hear his laugh over the music, but he doesn’t need to. He’s so busy watching, he doesn’t see the waitress drop another drink on the table until it’s too late, and she’s already moved on to serving the next table. Now that it’s here, he’s not going to turn it down.

    Or

    Two lives, seven days, one amazing city.
