    Summary

    “Buckle up, Mr. Brewer, it’s your lucky afternoon.”

    He wants to laugh, but it’s honestly doing something for him. “Mm, how lucky?” he asks, leaning his elbows on the counter.

    David saunters over, little shoulder shimmy jostling the plastic bag he has in his hand. “Beef tenderloin, a lobster roll, and if you’re really good, creme brulee.”

    Or, a missing scene from Sunrise Sunset.

    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.

    Summary

    Patrick, I've never liked a smile as much as I like yours. I've never felt as safe as I do when I'm with you. I've never known love like I have when we're together. It's not been an easy road for me, but knowing that you will always be there for me at the end of it makes everything okay. Patrick Brewer, you are my happy ending.

    Summary

    “If I tell you this, I need to know that you won’t tell anyone. Not even David. Especially not David,” she says sharply before poking him in the thigh. “No pillow talk or-or secret sharing. I know you two have this whole ‘til death do us part’ thing going on, but even Death has a few things she doesn’t tell anyone, I’m sure.” 

    “Alexis - ” he says, because he truly has no idea how to respond to that. Except to say, “I won’t tell David.”

    Or, Alexis comes to Patrick for advice, which is not remotely prepared to give.
