    Summary

    Richie runs all the way to Eddie’s. He has a bike but he can’t remember, just now, where he put it. Everything feels real, feels — the gravel hurt his shoeless feet, his lungs burn when he gets tired, there’s a cut on his chin that aches a little. It feels real but things always felt real, with It.

    You can’t trust how you feel or what you see. That’s the core of the terror of It. That everything is real and nothing is real and all of it can kill you.

    Richie clambers up the drainage pipe and shoves open Eddie’s window. He’s afraid to look. He’s afraid of what It has prepared for him.

    But it’s nothing. It’s just Eddie, small, young, cast still on his arm. He’s curled up on his side and is using the cast as the world’s worst pillow.

    “Holy shitballs what the fucking shit,” breathes Richie, lunging forward to fling himself on top of Eddie’s sleeping form. “Don’t scream, don’t scream, hey — Eddie! Eddie, shut the fuck up, you’re going to wake your mom, it’s me! It’s me.”

    Summary

    Eddie could see the layers and layers of tape he’d wrapped around the leg of Richie’s glasses over a month ago, shaped like a little cocoon. He reached out and touched it with the tip of his finger.

    “These don’t even sit straight anymore,” he said. “Why are you still wearing them?”

    Richie didn’t blink from behind the lenses until Eddie took his hand back.

    “I don’t know. My life is kind of a mess right now. They feel appropriate.”

    “Your life isn’t a mess, Rich.”

    “It really, really is.” Richie straightened, started talking with his hands when he said, “Hey, shouldn’t you be shouting? I feel like this would be easier if you were shouting.”

    “You said you’d take this seriously,” Eddie said.

    Summary

    Eddie knew how this story would end; he thought about it a lot. He also thought a lot about how it began, when the spaceship appeared in the Barrens and he was living hundreds of miles away, not even aware of it. And then, he crashed his car.

     

     

    Eddie is called back to Derry to try and talk to whatever he finds there.

    Summary

    May 6, 2015, 3:45PM

    Richie’s phone buzzes twice. An unknown number, an anonymous icon.

    'Did you just call me?' the message reads.

    It could be a scam. It probably is. But he still types out a quick reply:

    'No sorry'

    Three grey bubbles appear, indicating someone tapping away on the other end. Not a scam then. If it were a bot then the entire reply would be copied and pasted.

    'Ok never mind, it was just spam. Sorry'
