    Summary

    Henry winced so hard that one eye shut. “It’s—I shouldn’t have come. I don’t know what I was thinking. I’m sorry, I’ll just...”

     

    He turned to leave, and Alex grabbed his arm. “Woah, man. You’re barefoot in the fucking cold, and you already woke me up. Now I want answers.”

     

    Henry shifted his weight, searching for something to say. “I need—“ His voice broke. He swallowed and tried again. “I need you to drive me somewhere. If you could.”

     
    ——

    Or, Henry transferred to Alex’s high school in September. In January, he showed up at Alex’s front door, alone and shaken and desperate for someone with an American license to help him find his sister.

    Basically, the non-famous high school au, where Alex and Henry finally fucking talk.

    Summary

    It happens on a random morning in May when Alex, age fourteen, pads into the kitchen to greet his mother and steal a waffle from June's plate and sees a man sitting at their breakfast counter, reading a newspaper, a cup of coffee raised to his lips. Like he belongs. Like it's the most natural thing in the world. June doesn't seem to give the man a second thought. She merely flicks Alex on the forehead and takes back the waffle. Ellen isn't worrying, either. In fact, she's talking to him. Asking what his schedule is like. Making plans for dinner.

    Alex has never seen this man before in his life.

    Summary

    Six years since they've been together, Alex and Henry were now a far cry from the lovestruck couple they once were when their history began. If you ask Alex, all of it was Henry’s fault. If you ask Henry, he’d agree and say that Alex was right.

    But before Alex could ever find out why Henry does not seem like the man he once decided to spend the rest of his life with, he already walked away from it all. Now, Henry was alone, left to deal with whatever shattered remains he could salvage from his life.

    Or, the one where Henry’s sick and Alex only finds out two years after they've broken up.
