    Summary

    There are different variations of the headline, but it all boils down to the same story. Jack Wright and Sammy Stevens, both former actors in the teen drama Laguna Beach, kissed in their car at LAX. Sammy’s in the driver’s seat, he’s leaning over the counsel, and one of his hands cups Jack’s cheek on the side of his face that’s closest to the camera.

    Sammy saw the news when he woke up to his phone buzzing with a call from his agent. He hasn’t moved from his bed yet, even though at some point he should probably go to the bathroom and throw up everything he’s eaten in the last day. Other than a constant stomachache, the rest of his body feels numb. A horrible, creeping numbness.

    Summary

    “I mean, I’m just an intern,” Ben says quickly. “I’m not – I’m not complaining or anything. It’s just – I came to LA just for this internship, and I’ve never lived away from home before. So on top of all the shit I get here, I’m in this awful sublet with five roommates who act like smoking pot is a personality and there’s never a moment’s quiet, and it’s so expensive anyway. I just really miss my mom, this is the first time I’ve lived more than a few miles from her, and the town I’m from is just so special to me and I’ve never been away for longer than a week – oh God, I’m rambling, I’m so sorry -”

    “Ben,” Jack moves to squeeze his shoulder, recognizing the symptoms of a panic attack after years of helping Sammy through his. “Just breathe. In and out. You’re gonna be okay.”

    [In which Jack recruits Ben as an intern for Shotgun Saturday Nights.]
