    Summary

    The hand on his shoulder softens and trails down, fingers curling over his bicep, a little too soft, too warm, too nice.

    Patrick lifts his head and in the sliver of light peaking through the drawn curtains all he can see is a shock of messy black hair poking up under the comforter on the pillow beside him. He pulls his arm away from the touch and turns to sit up, taking in his surroundings. He’s in a studio apartment he doesn’t recognise, all shadows and unfamiliar shapes in the soft light. He hadn’t recognised the guy’s voice when he’d told him to get up. That fact somehow makes his heart race uncomfortably in his chest. Had he told Rachel he’d changed his mind? Had one of her friends let him crash here to avoid the imminent fallout? Or had he freaked out, taken solace with this stranger and gone home with him on the rebound?

    Him.

    Fuck.

    OR

    Patrick wakes up in bed beside his fiancé. The only problem with that is, it isn’t the same fiancé he had when he went to sleep.

    An amnesia fic, wherein Patrick can’t remember the two years of his life in which he really started living.

    Summary

    There’s still a lot more that Patrick wants for them, is what it’s about. A bigger house, because Stevie’s whispered teasing about how their cottage is really too small for the rest of their lives and the way David elbows her to shut her up itches at the back of his brain on a weekly basis and whenever David texts him a creative storage solution. He wants David to always say our store like he’s proud of it. He needs more nights curled up on the couch with David, feeding each other bites of whatever David’s baked because now that they have a kitchen, David’s made his feelings on Patrick’s limited cooking repertoire very clear and taken over the lion’s share of their dinners. More nights telling each other stories about their days, present or past, as the sun sets through the big window on the west wall.

    Things will calm down after the third store opens. Then they’ll work more on reestablishing themselves as a unit in town and Twyla’s consternation over making both of their drinks before she realizes David isn’t with him will be a thing of the past.

    It’ll take a while, but they’ll get there.

    Or, marriage is a verb. David and Patrick work on it, three years in.
