    Summary

    Over the course of several years, Eddie falls in love with Richie, and they drift apart and come back together.

    Companion piece to Whenever I'm Alone with You. Would definitely recommend reading that first, though I think this probably makes sense as a standalone, too. :)

    Summary

    “It sucked to tell people,” Richie said suddenly, tapping a finger on his glass. He was avoiding eye contact again. “Like - it just really fucking sucked. I’m old. I’m like middle-aged. You’re this old and you just start telling people you're gay, they think, ‘Jesus! That dude’s got issues.’ Because they’re right, and you do.”

    “It must have come as a real shock to our friends,” Eddie said, staring. “That you have issues.”

    Summary

    He thought he’d hidden these feelings from himself, stowed them away in some dark corner and learned not to think about it. But the second Eddie peeked in from around the corner at the Jade and looked at Richie with those big, limpid pools of Christmas Orphan meets Bambi, and started rambling about gluten and cashews, it all came flooding back into focus. Richie has loved Eddie so long that it’s become an ache that goes beyond reason.

    "We could leave this place, Eddie," Richie says. "God, imagine that? Not having to live in this trash dump anymore. We could go wherever we wanted. A different place every night."
