    Summary

    “The heat wake you up?” he asked.

    “Huh? Oh, no, I just…”

    She paused. She then shook her head and curled her fingers into his shirt, gentle yet needy, as she let her words die. It was an innocuous touch of her’s, something she did so frequently it was almost second nature for her to do it, and for him to feel it. The muscle memory of her fingers grasping him, her nails just barely grazing his skin through the fabric. The ritual of him shaking his head and smiling at her as goosebumps spread along his arms. His heart somehow growing fonder every single time.

    And yet this morning, at that touch, he suddenly found himself fighting the urge to step away from her. That warm coil in his chest didn’t disperse as he hoped it would, but rather sunk deeper, down over his ribs and through his stomach. Pooling in ribbons, weighty and relentless. Thick as tar, bittersweet as the darkest molasses.

    A lump formed in his throat. He tried to swallow it away.

    Don’t make it weird, he thought to himself. He swept a hand over his hair and swallowed again, with little result. Jesus, the heat must be really…

    Summary

    Tohru sticks to lighting sparklers when they get down to the beach. The night is close to black, but one after another, the fireworks ignite the air with little peaks and valleys of light. Kyo kicks off his shoes and ends up sitting at the edge of the shoreline. Tohru watches as he skips stones across the water. She lights a new firework, and sparks illuminate the curve of his back, the shade of his hair like something that burns.

    The sparkler burns out gently in her hand. She burns a little bit, too.

    --

    On the last night of summer vacation, Kyo and Tohru light fireworks on the beach at 3 a.m. and avoid the sparks.

    Summary

    What happened to Richard Strand pre Alex Reagan’s 11 phone calls.

    Little soul,
    you have wandered
    lost a long time.

    The woods all dark now,
    birded and eyed.

    Then a light, a cabin, a fire, a door standing open.

    The fairy tales warn you:
    Do not go in,
    you who would eat will be eaten.

    You go in. You quicken.

    You want to have feet.
    You want to have eyes.
    You want to have fears.

    Jane Hirshfield

    When a case goes wrong, Neal ends up drugged, confused, and he does the only thing he can - he runs. What he doesn't know is where he's run to, and why he's so reluctant to leave.

    Which is how Peter finds his missing CI, passed out on the floor of his own living room.
