    Summary

    It’s only been a month and a half since Eddie has seen Richie in person, but the thing is, last time Eddie didn’t know that Richie is gay. And that shouldn’t change anything. That shouldn’t mean things are different, and Eddie shouldn’t act different, but he knows he’s in trouble as soon as Richie walks out of the airport’s sliding doors, squinting in the sunlight, his duffle bag slipping off his shoulder before he even spots Eddie’s car.

    “Don’t be a freak,” Eddie says out loud, just in time for Richie to see him talking to himself. “Great.”

    Richie mouths nonsense back, standing a few feet away from the car on the sidewalk, gesturing expansively with a hand that’s pink from the cold. Eddie flips him off. As Richie comes closer, as he opens the car door, laughing, Eddie feels his stomach sink.

    Summary

    But now he remembers his childhood, and the fierceness of all the emotions he felt back then — love most of all. Love was a blood oath, it was Bev handing him the fencepost that could kill monsters, it was what made him throw that fencepost into Its gaping maw to save Richie from the deadlights.

    When it comes to what love feels like for Eddie, it’s always been — different, with Richie. He loves all of his friends with all of his heart, but Richie has burrowed in deeper, somehow, and if Eddie were a more dramatic or poetic man he might say he loves Richie in his bones, in his soul. But he isn’t, so he doesn’t say that, even if he maybe thinks it a little bit and feels ridiculous.

    --

    Or, after killing It and returning to New York, Eddie decides to make a change.

    Summary

    “When did you get back?” Richie asks, rubbing at his chest like an old woman who’s just gotten a fright.

    He goes over to the counter and starts moving stuff into the sink. Eddie is grateful that his back is turned.

    “Last night,” he says, regretfully slipping into the strained voice that Richie has said makes it sound like he’s inhaling helium as he speaks. “Um, before you went to bed. I mean, sleep. You were… in bed.”

    Summary

    Eddie knows he should refuse. He should walk away from this guy with wild hair and thick glasses that don’t obscure the way his eye squints when he grins. He should get a cab back to his hotel, text his fiancée back, take an aspirin, and go to sleep. Tomorrow, he’s flying back to New York. This was a mistake, a single deranged misfire of his usually iron self-control, and the last thing he should do is indulge it any further. He knows that.

    Or: a week before he's supposed to get married, Eddie hooks up with a stranger in a bar, and it changes the trajectory of his life.
