    Summary

    Edward swallowed again and put his hands on Thomas‘ hips. Kissed his sweaty brow and then pressed their foreheads together.
    "Let me help you."
    Thomas smiled, eyes shining.
    "Lay the table, please, Ned."
    He cupped Edward’s cheek in his slender hand for a moment, and Edward smelled the warmth from his wrist. Dearer to him than any flower or perfume.
    He nodded and they parted.

    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

    The kettle whistled.
    Thomas poured water over the tea leaves and then opened the back door, just as the sure, heavy tread of boots became noticable over the birds.
    Three times scraped on the mat.

    Thomas stirred the leaves in the pot, heart thudding away.
    Oh, the glory of this.

    Summary

    She refers, of course, to the Chinese cloisonné side comb she’d somehow acquired during her time in the Opium Wars. Intricate bits of enamel, amber gold and moss green, oxblood red and the vital blue of the jay’s breast, all nested together in a stylized interpretation of a bird. She’d carried it with her their whole time in the Arctic. Secreted in the shaft of her boot or against her breast, it had witnessed first their hatred—hatred, he thinks, a hard little smile on his lips. Hatred, as though there was ever a time they did not love one another, ever a time their magnets did not nose round to the north of the other. It simply wore another face then, a grotesque mask.

    Summary

    Now, there is no Captain Crozier to keep his eyes from wandering too obviously. There is only a charmingly startled Jopson, who hides his surprise quite well. Lesser stewards might have spilled the soup, all that attests to Edward having caught Jopson off guard is a slight splash, one that comes nowhere near to the edge of the pot. Not even Jopson’s face suffers some aberration of expression, he is as cheerfully composed as always, appearing almost regal, to Edward.

    'Permission to do just what you would.'

    Edward is not certain at all that Jopson knew what he implied when he said as much.

    a.k.a. Area man in a constant state of mental agitation.
