    Summary

    Sometimes, Eddie caught Richie staring. More often than not, he would make a face or stick out his tongue, and Richie would return it, exaggerated and playful. But other times, Eddie stared back. Richie could feel a blush rising in his face as Eddie held his gaze, level and calm, not curious or judgmental, simply looking. When that happened, Richie would always be the one to look away. He’d quickly turn to another one of their friends and crack a joke, which would make everyone groan or laugh or tell him to shut up, and it would take his mind off Eddie and the way his face got pink when he was outside for too long.

    or: five summers that richie and eddie spend together.

    Summary

    Richie runs all the way to Eddie’s. He has a bike but he can’t remember, just now, where he put it. Everything feels real, feels — the gravel hurt his shoeless feet, his lungs burn when he gets tired, there’s a cut on his chin that aches a little. It feels real but things always felt real, with It.

    You can’t trust how you feel or what you see. That’s the core of the terror of It. That everything is real and nothing is real and all of it can kill you.

    Richie clambers up the drainage pipe and shoves open Eddie’s window. He’s afraid to look. He’s afraid of what It has prepared for him.

    But it’s nothing. It’s just Eddie, small, young, cast still on his arm. He’s curled up on his side and is using the cast as the world’s worst pillow.

    “Holy shitballs what the fucking shit,” breathes Richie, lunging forward to fling himself on top of Eddie’s sleeping form. “Don’t scream, don’t scream, hey — Eddie! Eddie, shut the fuck up, you’re going to wake your mom, it’s me! It’s me.”

    Summary

    Eddie makes another noise, not quite a scream but not anything else either.

    Stan drops his hand.

    “Hey, Eddie,” he says. “Welcome to the peanut gallery. I wrote you a letter, but I guess you won’t get it now.”

    (Or, Eddie and Stan stick around as ghosts after they die. Unable to make themselves known to the other Losers, they have to find other ways to communicate.)
