    Summary

    “The amnesiac has questions,” says Grantaire. Boyfriend grips the wheel. “Don’t worry, we’ll start with the 200 dollar Jeopardy trivia.” A semi roars past them. “What’s your name?”
    The perfect sinew and bones of his fingers relax. “Oh,” he murmurs. Just like that, defenses lowered. “Enjolras.”
    “Cool,” Grantaire says. “I’m Grantaire.”
    Something happens to Enjolras’ face which, if you zoomed in, might be considered a smile. “I know.”
    “How long have we been dating, Enjolras?”
    The almost-smile is gone. The gameshow metaphor has become too apt; someone’s lost it all. “That’s complicated.”
    Well. Grantaire should’ve known some part of this fairytale was too good to be true. He’s best friends with a streetsmart renegade and someone who wrote him a welcome-back-to-consciousness poem in godawful blue icing on an orange frosted cookie cake. There are nearly ten people who were waiting for him to wake up in a hospital room.
    Of course his inexplicable relationship with his supernova hot, socially conscientious boyfriend is ‘complicated.’

    Summary

    It’s been getting better over the years: there was a time when he would have let the heaviness in his chest anchor him to bed and sink him into the ocean.

    These days, it’s just tedious.
