    Summary

    David thinks he’s happy. He’s pretty sure. It’s obviously a good thing, being rich, so why wouldn’t he be happy about it?

    He tries to use the walk back to Patrick’s to clear his head, but instead he keeps thinking about how he’ll probably have a driver again soon.

    When he gets to the apartment, he’s still not sure how he feels—but that’s ok. He’ll know after he talks to Patrick.

    Summary

    “Do you... see it? See them, I mean? Like, do you get them, get how they fit as a couple?”

    Stevie blinked up at him, shoulders suddenly tense, and didn’t answer.

    “Not that- I’m sure your friend—David—I’m sure David is a great guy. I hadn’t met him before this weekend, but he seems great.” None of the seven Brewer cousins had met David before this weekend, actually. It was part of why the situation didn’t sit well with Michael. Everyone else’s spouses had at least come for a long weekend at some point, enduring an informal but rigorous vetting process over Aunt Marcy’s chicken parmesan.

    Summary

    The karaoke singer didn’t leave, even though his date had gone upstairs for the evening. He didn’t sing for awhile, either. He just sat nursing a drink, staring down at his phone and occasionally scanning the room.

    Patrick wished he had his phone with him, too. Without it, he had nothing to distract him, nothing to pretend to do.

    Finally, after about half an hour, the man stood up again.

    Apparently it was Mariah Carey’s turn to be desecrated.

    Summary

    “I wish I’d met you before you moved here,” Patrick said, breaking a half an hour of silence.

    David’s head popped up from where he’d been crouched behind the center display rearranging product on a lower shelf. “Ew, why?”

    “I just wonder what you were like. What you’d have thought of me.”

    “Well, don’t,” David said, sharply and earnestly enough to pique Patrick’s interest, before moving to a stack of organic cotton dish clothes.

    Summary

    “Can I ask you something, um, about tonight?” Patrick said out of the blue from behind the register.

    Right away, David knew that it was something to do with sex. It was in the way Patrick’s eyes cut to the left, the way he had one hand buried deep in his pocket and the other folded over his body protectively, fingers clasping the opposite elbow.

    Patrick had all the confidence in the world when they held hands on Main Street or kissed with their shop windows wide open, and he'd committed to learning how to get David off like he was trying to earn a merit badge for it. Talking about sex was his only sticking point. Patrick clearly wasn't used to saying what he wanted out loud; he wasn't even used to knowing what he wanted, really. A lifetime of repression doesn’t fade away in four weeks.
