    Summary

    Ellie's back in town. Paul and Aster never went away in the first place, waiting for her. And a movie night is just the way to get them all back together - at least, that's what Paul thought.

    (He was right, of course, but Ellie would rather die and admit that).

    Summary

    Ellie’s last letter for him was only a reminder, but it reminded him that he always had a choice. He could choose to be an asshole or he could choose to break his heart once, no, well, twice. And it was always easier to be an asshole.


    A companion piece to cherry girl, in which Paul Munsky reflects on his love for two girls.

    Summary

    As Aster deals with the starting college and being away from home for the first time, she gets to know her roommate Ellie Chu, who she gradually becomes close friends with and maybe more.

    "And as she paints the hills, the dry tinderboxes waiting to catch flame as summer turns into fall, she loses herself in the sensation of dragging the brush across canvas and the mesmerizing vision of endless golden hills. She too is waiting for a spark, something or someone at this college to help her burn brighter. For the first time, she feels ready for that ignition. She remembers that she came here to become a better version of herself, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, but she can’t do that if she’s too afraid of getting burnt to throw herself into her new life."

    Summary

    “You know Ellie’s been hired by a huge record label in New York?” Paul tells her one day, and she can’t help but feel her heart sink at the news.

    Aster’s happy for her. She really is. But she’s now concluded that a few years now might mean never.

    ---

    For years, Aster’s asked God to show her at least a glimpse of what lies in her future. She spends long nights even pleading to him to give her a sign. But she should’ve known from the start that she shouldn’t bargain with God.

    Call it destiny, call it fate, or call it even karama—but Aster definitely got damn more than what she asked for, and she’s not sure what to do about it.

    Summary

    Paul interrupts them, winning another game of Rock Band (Ellie doesn’t know much about it, but it seems like the sort of thing you can win at), seemingly unaware of their own conversation, the fact that they’re in their own little bubble. Honestly, Ellie has to hand it to him, he hasn’t been weird at all about her and Aster finally getting together.

    Summary

    Ever since Ellie could remember, she had been fascinated with space. There was something about the enormity of it all, she’d described countless times to anyone who asked. The enormity of being in the middle of something that had no end that anyone could define. The fact that it could stretch on and on and on, and there were corners humans could never hope to reach in their lifetimes. The new frontier, she’d always insisted. Sitting right at our doorstep.

    - - - - - -

    Or the one where Ellie and Aster still find their way to each other despite being light years apart.

    Summary

    “Wait!” A hard tug on her arm turns her back around again and Aster is crying. There are tears streaming down her face from those beautiful, brown eyes now dark with anguish. Aster pulls Ellie towards her and presses her lips to hers. Her lips are as soft as the first time they kissed and Ellie swallows back a sob, pressing harder into her and kissing her back fiercely. She tastes salt mixed in with Aster’s usual sweetness, and Ellie feels like she can’t breathe. She can’t move, and certainly can’t bear to leave. Every single cell in her body screams as Aster pulls away again.

    “A few years. Come back to me in a few years.” Aster whispers shakily and Ellie nods.

    “Promise me!” Aster shakes her with a fistful of Ellie’s shirt in her hands.

    “I will.” Ellie whispers.

    Then she turns around and leaves.

    Or

    The one where Ellie grows up an orphan and Aster is the daughter of a wealthy pastor that owns her group home. When Ellie gets herself into big trouble in the harsh Central City streets, Aster may be the only one who can help her.
