    Summary

    The one where Andrew makes a perfectly reasonable request and Neil takes it too far like the dumbass he is. Or, relationships are complicated and communication is hard. They don't always nail it.

    So, Andrew has hit his limit. Neil’s charged silence next to him is so loud that Andrew can’t read over the buzz of it in his ears.

    “Get out,” he says, turning to glare at Neil.

    Neil blinks at him.

    “Whatever stupid thing you’re obsessing over. It’s irritating. I don’t have time to solve your problems for you. Handle it. I have to study.”

    Instantly, he realizes it was a mistake. He watches Neil’s face and body shutter up, closing tight like he’s locking down for a hurricane. It took so fucking long to get Neil to open up in the first place. Andrew had to peel him open one truth at a time. Fuck.

    Summary

    There’s very little Andrew likes less than being tricked, but not knowing things does make the cut. He stands, throws his messenger bag over his shoulder, grabs his coffee, and stomps over to slide into the chair across from the guy. He looks up at Andrew with a flash of calculated flight or fight in his eyes, but he quickly smooths this over and affixes a look of polite interest on his face. “Can I help you?”

    “Are you on Grindr?” Andrew asks. Bluntly.

     “Uh,” the guy says, looking more confused. “I don’t know. What is it?”

     “It’s a hookup app gay men use.”

     “Oh,” he says, frowning. “No, I’m definitely not on that.”

     “Because you don’t do gay men?”

     The guy shrugs. “Because I don’t do hookups.”
