    Summary

    “Then we just can’t get caught.” There it is again, that thousand watt smile focused right on Spencer, making him feel like the sun’s trained on him. From where he’s still gripping Warren’s sleeve, a thumb rubs over the inside of his wrist. There’s a weird amount of promise in that moment, something hiding behind the twinkle in Warren’s eyes. There’s a half second where he’s floating, can’t even feel the pavement under his knees, the rubber of the wheel pressed into his spine, just a strange, soft roar like a solar flare in the back of his mind.

    Against his better judgement, he barks off a laugh, leans into Warren’s shoulder to muffle the noise. “Just can’t get caught. Right.” That’s all it boils down to, do what they want, say what they want, break out of the rut, break the rules, just don’t get caught.

    So they don’t.

    Summary

    “You look so cute like that,” Warren says, and like so much between them, it’s part-joke, part-dare.

    Summary

    Spencer divides the entirety of his life into Before and After. He feels like he has a right to it with everything he’s gone through, to get to put things in boxes, be his own organizer and make things simple for once in his goddamn life—

    Okay, that's a lie. There’s a category other than Before and After, a grey area on the timeline where everything is smudged and blurry. It’s pretty big one, actually, that starts that night in the car, crescendos, and tapers out somewhere along the line. At some point, he knows he needs to sit down and draw all this out properly, make a flowchart with every moment he fucked up in sequential order. That shit’ll be color-coated. Highly decorated.

    For now though, he just calls that time In Media Res. He likes the way it sounds, like it was important, in the middle of something that meant something.

    Summary

    He thinks at first he was dreaming about Warren, Warren’s breath on his cheek, Warren’s arms pulling him close. And then, with a cool chill, he realizes that some of that wasn’t a dream but reality, fuzzy-edged in his memory, hot and sweaty and tasting of beer.

    Last night, he thinks, last night – but that’s as far as he gets, because Warren shifts against him, pushing closer, his knees fitting to Spencer’s, his mouth landing wet and open against the back of Spencer’s neck.

    Summary

    He noticed you staring and popped out his hip like Betty Boop. “Come on,” he said. “Don’t sit there gawping, get in.”

    Summary

    He was always the fidgeter in class and you were the quiet one, silent and still and better at drawing than you were at anything else, and that made you dumb, when you were young, silent and still and dumb, practically invisible, but Warren had come up to you in seventh grade and leaned his chin on your shoulder, his airy blonde hair tickling your cheek and said, “Hey, whatcha drawing?” and since then--

    Well, there’d been a lot of stuff since then.
