    Summary

    "“You okay?” Richie whispers, though there’s no one else around to hear the words.

    Patty shrugs pathetically. The movement feels heavy, like some weight is pushing her, further and further down. “It’s Valentine’s day,” she whispers back, eyes still fixed to Richie’s, as though daring him to look away."

    Summary

    It was easy to believe it would last forever. When they rode their bikes to the quarry and threw them against the grass, tripping over themselves to explore, to see the world. Climbing that one tree that surpassed the rest in the clearing had been the defining moment for Stan; up there, you could see anything. The whole of Derry was spread out at their fingertips, itching at their palms.

    “I hope this never ends,” he had told Bill one night, sprawled out across the field, air rapidly cooling.

    Bill had confided back, whispered like a secret, dying seconds away into the night. “Yeah. Me neither.”

Ready to drown him."

    Courfeyrac falls in love with everyone he meets. Some leave more of an impression than others.
