    It's easy with Henry—it's always easy.

    That night in Berlin meant a little more than Alex realized.

    Summary

    Parents love Alex and, honestly, that’s their first mistake.

    It might be because he’s the student council president (and lacrosse co-captain, and member of half a dozen or so other clubs and committees that he only remembers by the grace of Google Calendar), but any adult that meets Alex once walks away with the impression that he’s a very mature and trustworthy young man.

    They’re half right.

    Alex and his best friend Liam have a different kind of history. A story told in moments throughout their senior year of high school.

    Summary

    "Why are you interested in me, again?” Liam asks eventually, after a sigh so deep Pez is mildly concerned that he’s going to pass out from lack of oxygen. His own grin widens.

    “You’re hot.” Then, “You’re getting over someone.”

    Then, “It’s your call, sweetheart.”

    Liam rubs a hand over his face like he’s being asked to choose which of his favourite children should be put to death by firing squad, rather than being propositioned by an attractive man on an arguably very romantic rooftop terrace.

    Then he sets his beer down on the table and Pez feels something in his stomach swoop.

    Summary

    "You know, you don’t have to pretend to like me."

    Liam blinks at him.

    "Plenty of people like me," Pez adds sweetly. He lets go of Liam’s hand. "If you'd rather I accost some other unsuspecting partygoer, feel free to let me know."

    That makes Liam frown, because once again it's fucking code. Accost? Accost. Oh shit, wait—

    "Are you hitting on me?"

    ***

    It turns out that Pez is, indeed, hitting on him.
