    Summary

    “We were between Honduras and the tip of Mexico when we went down.” He draws an X in the dirt. The area of the ocean that Carlos gestures to with his stick seems so miniscule, but TK knows it’s likely thousands of square miles. “We may have gotten slightly off course when we lost control, but yeah,” he slides his foot over the picture, effectively wiping it away. “It’s a start.”

    His eyes are stormy and his brow is furrowed. TK wants to smooth it out with his thumb, he wants to wash the dirt off his neck and ask him why he looks like he’s holding the weight of the world on his shoulders, but all he can do is nod and hope the rescue team can find them as easily as the map made it seem.

    Summary

    "He saw the stack of papers with Seb’s perfect handwriting on them, the books, the poster of some famous girl whose identity he hadn’t the faintest idea of.

    The hoodie on his chair.

    Aaron’s hoodie, now just barely purple, worn-out and torn, but so precious to Seb.

    Robert picked it up, holding it against his chest.

    It wasn’t just Seb who made his heart clench with sadness."

     

    When Seb goes missing on New Year's Eve after a fight with Robert, his estranged dads join forces to find him - and just might find something else in the process as well.

    Part 3 of the "Anniversaries" series.

    Summary

    TK shakes his head. “It’s not like that. It’s not sexual or even romantic. He’s my friend. God, I think he might be my best friend.” Paul grunts and TK squeezes his shoulder. “After you, of course. It was an accidental meeting, really. I couldn't sleep one night about a year ago and fell down the rabbit hole a bit and ended up on this forum about modern queer literature--or the lack thereof--and his posts were really deep and insightful so I messaged him and he messaged me back and well….now I feel like I can’t go a single day without talking to him.”

    “What’s his name?”

    TK shrugs. “I don’t know. We don’t do that. No names, no pictures. Nothing personal.”

    Paul blinks at him. “He could be a thirteen year old girl.”

    “He’s not.”

    “Or an eighty five year old man.”

    “You have to accept the whole picture to really love someone and not ignore certain parts. I don’t think you can fully love a person if you’re sweeping some things under the rug.”- Maren Morris
