    Summary

    The light strum of Patrick’s guitar filters through the open kitchen window and David lets his head fall to the side, luxuriating a bit in the gentle melody coming from his husband’s fingertips. You’d think after all these years his belly wouldn’t swoop like this anymore, but it does, catching David’s breath a bit and flushing his already overwarm skin. Reaching down, he curls his hand around his water glass, collecting the condensation in his palm so he can rake the cool water over his face. It feels good, but does nothing to deter the direction of his thoughts from the man a few rooms away.

    Summary

    It was inevitable, Patrick knew. They weren’t invincible. They weren’t immortal. He never wanted to live forever, and he knew David didn’t either, but that didn’t change the fact that he’ll forever wish for just one more day.

    Elder Patrick sings one last song for David at his funeral.

    Summary

    Patrick can feel David’s eyes on him, the same way he had when they were in the shop. David’s gaze is heavy, like a weighted blanket, comfortable and warm. He’s never wanted anyone to look at him before, to focus on him like this. But he wants a lot of things with David he’s never wanted before.

    Summary

    Patrick is starting his second beer when he sees a striking man moving around the bar. To Patrick, he looks kind of like an animal. Lean and dark. Barely contained, like something that vibrates against the restraints of polite society. The thought makes Patrick catch his breath. Damn. And that song, good lord, it’s like he came with a soundtrack or something. Patrick can’t stop staring. He is fucking gorgeous.

    Summary

    He’s never, not once in his life, felt this much nervous excitement, and definitely not with Rachel. Part of him wonders if something about the emotions or adrenaline of the day they met inflated the idea of David in his mind, that having David as more than a fleeting memory would somehow diminish the reality of him. But in his gut, the instincts Patrick's trusted to get him this far, he feels anything but that.
