    Summary

    “This might be very forward,” Joe says, once he’s arrived at Nicky’s side. “And I don't mean to intrude, but… are you all by yourself?”

    Nicky makes it a point to look at the empty seats all around him, not exactly dismissive, but a definite challenge. Yes, obviously. Why do you care?

    “What gives you that idea?”

    “Well,” Joe says, undeterred. “Among other things, the fact that I can just… do this,” and then he’s sliding into the spot right next to Nicky, easy as anything.

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    Summary

    She steps forward before she loses her nerve, listening to the old bell jingle above the door as she pushes it open.

    “Welcome to Rose Apothe - oh.”

    He’s just as beautiful as he remembers, eyes wide, lips rounded in surprise.

    “Hello, David,” she replies. Her palms are starting to sweat and she wipes them on her jeans, adjusting the strap of the tote bag looped around her wrist.

    “Rachel."

    Or, Rachel finds something in her closet she thinks Patrick might want to have.

    Summary

    "Patrick does so much for him. He feels slightly choked up just thinking about it. The taxes and spreadsheets and dinners he cooks and the coffees he makes him in the mornings. All the times David’s fallen asleep on his lap while they were watching baseball and Patrick’s pulled a blanket over him. He starts to feel slightly anxious because he doesn’t even know where to start, it’s so much and he’s never going to be able to do it justice in comparison."

     

    Or, Alexis teaches David about love languages, and David gets all in his head.
