    Summary

    Patrick goes shopping for shirts. Feelings ensue.

    “So take me shopping then.”

    “Oh honey, I don’t know if we’ll survive that kind of test so early on in our relationship.”

    Patrick doesn’t know whether he should call attention to the relationship or the honey. He likes the sound of both. He already can’t stop tasting the shape of boyfriend in his mouth and it’s only been two days. He loves it. He loves it so much he’s volunteering to shop.

    Summary

    David and Patrick return to Patrick’s hometown to say goodbye to one of Patrick’s childhood friends. While there, Patrick grapples with what might have been different if he’d realized his sexuality sooner.

    David stands then, knees popping, making that old man noise he doesn’t actually need to make, but likes to because he enjoys the drama of it. Instead of sitting next to Patrick on the end of the bed, he drapes himself over Patrick’s lap first, then across his shoulders, putting himself very purposefully in Patrick’s eye line. “I love you, and I’m here.”

    “I can see that,” Patrick says, choking out the words like David is cutting off his air, which he is a little, even if it’s well-meaning. David readjusts, moving bony elbows, kissing Patrick’s throat above the tie David tied in hopes of moving Patrick out of the bathroom mirror they’d been sharing. Patrick seemed to have gotten stuck there too, thinking about getting ready with Nate on the first day of grade 12, tying school ties and promising each other a memorable year. At that point, Patrick should have known the socks and shoes were a lost cause, but he’s stubborn; maybe he’s too stubborn.

    Summary

    Patrick follows David to his room closely and wordlessly, a very guilty shadow, and sits on the end of Alexis’s bed and tells him about Rachel and watches him with those sincere brown eyes that could make David do almost anything. David stands with his back to the bathroom door, arms crossed protectively around his body and feet planted firmly, but he still has this sensation in his stomach like he’s falling, the telltale hypnic jerk he sometimes gets lying in bed at night, but constant—an unrelenting, nauseating swoop deep in his diaphragm.

    There are two Patricks now—the one whose ass David has eaten and the one who grew up holding Rachel’s hand.


    After the barbecue, David takes the week to try to understand the people he and Patrick have become thanks to their relationships—old and new.
