    Summary

    Kent is stunned. He’s aware that he’s leaning over the boards like an idiot, but he feels like he just got rocked by a huge hit. This is Gabriel López. The Gabriel López. The one whose career Kent had followed in Juniors. The one who set records that not even he or Zimms could break.

    “López,” Kent says heavily, because he also remembers being told that Gabriel stopped playing hockey after a horrific car accident. He can’t stop his eyes from roving over Gabriel, looking for any sign of injury, which is stupid because any kind of accident would’ve taken place over ten years ago, and he’s wearing his coaching outfit of a tracksuit with the Scorpions logo.

    Or the one where Kent reunites with a familiar face, becomes the unofficial mascot of a peewee hockey team, and finds love, but maybe not in that order.

    Summary

    For the past month, the man with the baby and the sad blue eyes has been stopping in for a cup of coffee an hour before closing. He always sits in an overstuffed chair in the corner and drinks his coffee while his baby sleeps next to him in the stroller. Sometimes he pulls a book out from the diaper bag he carries with him; other times he just stares straight ahead as if in a daze. He never asks for a refill, always respectfully gathers his things and leaves ten minutes before the shop officially closes. Eric desperately wants to ask him what his story is.

    Summary

    Parson gestures with his spoon toward Hawke. “So am I allowed to ask about the service dog or is that not PC?”

    “My medical history is more of a 3rd date conversation," Eli says.

    “Oh? Why’s that?”

    “Because. No one sticks around afterward and I like to live in glorious denial for a short period beforehand.”

    It comes out more self-deprecating than he intended.

    Parson looks…thoughtful. “Well, does this count as one or two?

    “Pardon?”

    “This. Ice cream. I mean, technically it’s a second location, but still the same night. So is this one date or two?”

    “One,” Eli says firmly. “If it’s happening within the same three-hour period.”

    “You’re the expert,” Parson says, which, he’s really, really, not, but ok.

    “So still two dates to go then?” Parson continues.

    “I—what?”

    “We’ve got a roadie coming up but then we’re home for almost two weeks. When does your semester start?”

    “You want to do this again?” Eli asks.

    Parson stops idly twirling his spoon.

    “You don’t?”

    He does, Eli realizes. He really does. Because apparently he actually likes Kent fucking Parson.
