    Summary

    Nothing short of a miracle, this was: Potter, boyish as ever still but taller now, standing in this freezing parking garage holding the edges of the briefcase smiling down at the bird. Your bird. His bird. Finally returned to him.

    Summary

    Their eyes connect for a single second and its enough to make Theo feel nauseous - what the fuck is he doing here? He thinks, as he notices he’s got the same look on his face all those years ago when they met for the first time. The corner of his mouth jerks up in a smile and Theo feels the urge to cry or empty his insides in a nearby bathroom, because now his heart is his throat and it’s beating faster than the speed of the car his dad was driving when he died. He feels like he’s going to slip off the bar stool and into a black hole where birds don’t sing and explosions don’t kill mothers.

    Boris fucking Pavlikovsky.

    The pleasure is all mine.

    (Theo and Boris reunite a few years earlier)

    Summary

    “I’m sorry Mr. Decker, but it’s about your marriage license. The request you sent in was declined… are you aware you are already legally married?”

    Theo’s mind blanks, “I’m what?” He blinks hard, shakes his head, “That’s not possible.”

    “Yes, sir, uh, to a Mr. Boris Pavli- Pavlik- sorry, I’m not quite getting that last name, it’s slavic?”

    -

    Or, Boris steals something different of Theo's before he leaves Vegas.

    Summary

    Before he left Amsterdam, Boris found an envelope with his name on it. He’d wanted to open it in Antwerp, but he was so caught up in it all- his wound and Theo’s illness and the high and the movies, all of it so strangely different and yet exactly the same as when they were kids- that he put it out of his mind. He didn’t want anything to interrupt them. Now, it’s like the envelope has expanded in size, every day growing bigger and bigger and threatening to crack his bedside table in two. He doesn’t know what’s stopping him, but whatever the letter contains, he knows Theo doesn’t want him to know about it. It could be nothing- there’s always been so much innocuous bullshit that Theo keeps to himself for no good reason. Or it could be something. It could be something that Boris would be content staying oblivious to. There are lots of things like that.

    Summary

    He keeps thinking about it when he gets back to New York. Every time Kitsey tries to talk to him through increasingly strained smiles he thinks about it and his ears start burning, and he has to look away.

    While Kitsey goes home and breaks the news to her mother, which Theo tries not to think about, he goes home and thinks about Boris instead. He tries not to think about Boris either, but those fragments, orange and blue, won’t leave him.

    He takes pills for two, three, four days in a row, for the black and dreamless sleep they bring him.

    And yet, he’s still he thinking about it three weeks later, when Boris shows up at the shop again.

    Summary

    “I loved you back then,” he whispers, looking up and meeting Boris’ eyes across the water. “I didn’t know it yet, not really. Or maybe I just didn’t want to admit it to myself. But I did, so much.”

    Boris’ features soften, and he gives Theo a gentle smile. “Is okay, Potter. I knew.”

    Summary

    “Nothing, I said it was a stupid idea.” I tried to pull my hand away again, but he was holding me firmly in place by my wrist alone.
    “Beautiful, really potter. Why not save them for some pretty girl, like the ones at school. The sad, dark ones always like very much jewels and gifts.”
    “You know I don’t talk to them.”
    “Who.”
    “Girls.”

    Theo gives Boris his mother's earrings, Boris is grateful.

    Summary

    Even in youth, some ancient part of your brain must have already known that the future was inevitable, that it would be here before you knew it. Hence the dreams. Hence their progression, every single time: You are trapped. You want to escape, to run, to be free. Someone is following you and you know you must evade them, that to be caught is tantamount to certain death, to the destruction of all you are. Running, always running, with no destination in sight. Just the deep-down knowledge that you must go, that you must go now.

    Imprisonment. Escape. Capture. Over and over again.

    After Amsterdam, Theo doesn't go back to New York.
