    Summary

    Most days, Owen feels like a puzzle with only the corners and edges left, and all the middle pieces missing. Just enough to form an outline, a basic idea of what he should look like, but not enough to truly exist.

    He says none of this to Curt, of course. The reason varies depending on the day. Sometimes, it's about not wanting to burden Curt, who worries enough already. Sometimes it's about not trusting Curt. Sometimes it's wanting Curt to notice without him saying anything, to feel terrible, to never forget what he did to Owen. Sometimes it's wanting Curt to notice without him saying anything, so Owen can know that Curt still pays attention to him, still cares enough to notice that he's upset.

    "O? You okay?"

    God, feeling vulnerable should be one of the nine circles of hell.

     

    Or, Owen learning to trust again.
