    Summary

    There’s a neon glow rising up from the pool, a watery electric blue that’s vaguely unnerving. The deep end, furthest from the streetlights, is swathed in shadows.

    It’s summer. El closed the gate.

    He’s just about got himself convinced that he’s fine when a voice rings out from the shadows, flat and a little mean.

    “Pool’s closed, pretty boy.”

    Summary

    The Camaro sits outside of the General Store every day from ten to eleven for a solid week, with the massive dent in the front quarter panel and scorch marks licking the glass—and every time Steve sees it, his heart sinks, a sudden, unbearable dread making a home in his chest. The last he knew—or the last he looked, rather—it had been sitting in the junkyard about five miles outside of Hawkins, set to be torn apart for scrap for a few prospective clients. And now, it’s just… sitting in a parking space. No owner in sight, no one paying it any mind.

    Summary

    It's five months since graduation.

    It's also Steve's birthday. He's celebrating it like he does every year - with his parents, at a fancy restaurant, wearing an expensive suit and making polite conversation and counting down the minutes until he gets to leave.

    This year's birthday outing proves to be different than the others, though.

    Because, “Good evening, my name is William and I’ll be your server tonight.”
