    Summary

    Kent can’t help it. He starts to laugh. This whole situation is fucked. He should have stayed in Boston. He should never have left Vegas in the first place. He’d figured it would be awkward to see Jack at the party, but he didn’t think he’d end up freezing to death with the guy in Vermont. He guesses there’s a certain sick poetry to that. Every time he’s made a calculated risk involving Jack, he’s gotten burned. He’s not accounting for all the variables correctly, like the fact that the universe hates him.

    “Kent.” Jack’s hand lands heavily on his back. He shakes him. “Come on. Kenny. Get it together.”

    “I’m going to kill you,” says Kent, into his hands. “I am literally going to murder you, Jack Zimmermann.”

    “No, you’re not,” mutters Jack. “You need me for body warmth.”

    Or: Kent gets invited to the book launch for Bad Bob's autobiography. Things don't exactly go as planned.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Georgia says slowly, like she thinks she misheard him. “You said you’re… married?”

    Amanda raises her eyebrows and taps something onto her keyboard. “That’s good to know, Mr. Zimmermann, but I’m sure you know that many of our players are married.”

    “Right, but this is… different.” Jack says.

    “Jack,” Georgia says, “Why did you never mention this before? Do I know your wife?”

    “I’m sure you do,” Jack says carefully, “Only… it’s not a wife. It’s Kent Parson.”

    ...

    (So what if they’re not pretending to be married. They’re still pretending to be happily married.)
