    Summary

    He decides it’s the freckle.

    The one just above David’s ass, to the right of his spine.

    It’s a perfect circle and it teases the edge of the right dimple at David’s lower back; they’ve just recently become intimately acquainted. Patrick loves to thumb over that perfect, sacred spot repeatedly—a silent promise on the occasions so far that he’s had the opportunity to bury himself deep in David’s impossible heat, his perfect body spread out before him. He traces over it again and again with the rhythm of his hips, and presses bruisingly when he comes.

    That’s the spot he will miss the most.


    Patrick before and after The Olive Branch. Companion piece to Everything I Once Had: from walking away to coming back together.

    Summary

    Patrick follows David to his room closely and wordlessly, a very guilty shadow, and sits on the end of Alexis’s bed and tells him about Rachel and watches him with those sincere brown eyes that could make David do almost anything. David stands with his back to the bathroom door, arms crossed protectively around his body and feet planted firmly, but he still has this sensation in his stomach like he’s falling, the telltale hypnic jerk he sometimes gets lying in bed at night, but constant—an unrelenting, nauseating swoop deep in his diaphragm.

    There are two Patricks now—the one whose ass David has eaten and the one who grew up holding Rachel’s hand.


    After the barbecue, David takes the week to try to understand the people he and Patrick have become thanks to their relationships—old and new.

    Summary

    This is a story about Rachel. It's about her relationship with Patrick, but it's also about a girl who fell in love with the wrong person. A girl who attached herself to someone who was sort of lost because she didn't want to see that she was sort of lost, too. (I really loved that Dan was adamant about not making Rachel out to be some shrew ex-girlfriend. She was a just a nice girl who met the wrong person too soon. I have to believe that both Rachel and Patrick genuinely cared for one another and that they truly could not figure out why, with all the perfect ingredients, the relationship never worked right. I think that happens when you meet someone you click so well with at a young age. It’s hard to let yourself and others change, and grow, and realize that you’re growing apart.) Anyway, this is also that conversation after The Barbecue (which I have set in late summer 2017, for reasons).
