    Summary

    Eddie squints at the little silver bag under Richie’s right arm. “Is that drugs?” he asks. “Do you keep drugs in that bag?”
    “And paraphernalia,” Richie says, as himself. “This is our third tour together. What the hell did you think I kept in here? Communion wafers?”
    “I don’t know!” Eddie says, sitting up. “I tried not to think about it! How many state lines has that bag crossed?”
    “A lot.” Richie grins. “Yes or no?”

    Summary

    “Oh my god, fine,” Eddie interrupts him. “Just… call me when you can, okay? I really want to talk to you.”

    “I will,” Richie says, sounding far away, like he’s already hanging up the phone. “I’ll call you.”

    “You swear?” No answer. “Richie?”

    There’s a click, and then the dial tone sings a low, sad song. Richie’s being weird, but that’s Richie. He’s weird sometimes. He always calls back.

    But this time he doesn’t. Eddie calls again on Monday and gets Mrs. Tozier, who is apologetic but says Richie can’t come to the phone right now. She says he’ll call back when he gets the chance.

    But he never does.

    Summary

    Over the tannoy, an announcement. Something about a gate change for a Delta Airline flight. Nothing important. Pulled out of this moment of pure focus, Eddie falters and loses any semblance of the bravery Richie so passionately ascribed him in the sewers.

    He stabs the cuttlefish with one chopstick and shoves it into his mouth.

    Maybe he should have written Richie a fucking letter. It would have been easy enough to slip that into his jacket pocket when he isn't looking, or at least easier than having to look him in the eyes over plates of sushi and say, Hey, bro, I'm in love with you.

    He probably shouldn't call him bro while he says it.

    "Nothing," he says, feeling like an idiot. "Never mind."

     

    OR:
    Eighteen months after not dying in the sewers underneath Derry, Eddie tries to tell Richie how he feels.

    Summary

    "No, I would've remembered this," Richie says, folding his hand around the un-bandaged parts of Eddie's hand. The gold ring glints on his pinky.

    Eddie explains how he stabbed himself and Richie nearly dies. His laughter sounds like someone peeling out on fresh blacktop.

    "Okay, yeah, hyuck it up, you goofy bitch," Eddie says.

    "How many times is that? Four? The universe wants you to be penetrated, Eds," Richie says. "It cannot get enough of you."

    Summary

    You can never get enough, Robert Smith cries over the static, and Richie turns around wearing that dumb smile again.

    All Eddie can think is: soon, all this will be gone.
