    Summary

    “And how did you come across a particularly sloppy Renoir reproduction?” Theo can’t help but ask as Boris gestures at the bartender for another two shots and smirks when Theo says reproduction. Even if Boris struck Theo as the art type, a fake Renoir is not the sphere of work that Theo could imagine Boris’ collection to be.

    Boris ticks a thumbnail against the side of his glass pensively. “Friend of friend gave it to me. A gift of sorts. One of my associates suggested I get it looked at by professional.”

    “And you found me,” Theo finishes for him.

    Boris holds his hands out, palms up, and replies, “Small world, no?”

     

    [Or art restoration expert Theo Decker finds himself slowly pulled into the high risk/high reward world of art forgery at the hands of his old classmate, Boris Pavlikovsky.]

    Summary

    His eyes were still big, even bigger than usual, and the leg she wasn't touching bounced nervously. "I'm not in love with you," he repeated, finally looking over at Bev. "I've never been in love with you."

    "Wow, kick a girl while she's down," she quipped.

    Eddie rolled his eyes and snorted. "Oh, shut up," he snapped. "Focus, Bev. I'm having a revelation, here." 

     

    As Bev and Eddie support each other in their respective divorces, Eddie begins to reevaluate some things about himself. Bev, who maaaybe knows a little more than she lets on, helps nudge him in the right direction.

    Summary

    “Don’t worry about it,” Richie says, mid dip. Eddie snorts as Richie pulls him back up. If only it were so easy. “You’ll get a job, I’ll get two jobs. Maybe we can’t afford heat in the winter. It’ll be cute.”

    “Freezing to death is not cute,” Eddie says, a bit lost in the tangle of their fingers together.

    “I don’t know,” Richie sing songs, pulling Eddie close and taking advantage of his momentary reach for balance to pull one of his hands free and pinch Eddie’s cheek. “I think you’d pull it off. You’ll be the poster child for blue lips and cold feet.”

    “I knew I’d be the breadwinner,” Eddie mutters.
