    Summary

    While working in the cafe on the same floor as the English department Stan had developed a mental chart of what people were writing based off of the drink that they ordered. He could tell you what every person in the cafe was writing at any given time, well almost. Stan knew that every experiment always had something unique, that every rule always had an exception. By the end of the first month of the semester he knew that Bill was his.

    Summary

    He’s staring down hard at his phone, scrolling aimlessly through Facebook without reading anything, when someone bumps into him. Whoever it is grabs the pole, their hands brushing against each other’s.

    Right in his ear, the guy says, “Fucking shit, you’re hot.”

    Eddie’s head jerks up, startled, and he meets the bright blue eyes of a man at least eight inches taller than him. The guy’s got a pink knit cap tugged down over his head and a spill of curls falling down from it, his glasses fogging up in the warmth of the train car.

    “What?” Eddie demands.

    Summary

    “Not that I’m not enjoying our banter, buddy, but word on the street is you got a problem you could use some help with,” Richie says. “What’s bugging you at two in the morning on New Year’s Eve?”

    “New Year’s Day,” Eddie corrects again.

    “New Year’s Day, then,” Richie allows.

    There’s another beat of silence before he hears Eddie sigh audibly over the phone line. "I’m thinking about leaving my wife.”

    “Why’s that?” Richie asks. He’s already hooked. He genuinely cares about all of his callers and wants to help, but something about Eddie’s got its nails in him. Honestly, he doesn’t mind all that much. It’s a nice change of pace, to feel something.

    “We don’t get along all that well,” Eddie tells him. “I… I don’t know. We don’t really have anything in common. She’s sort of controlling, I guess. And I think I might be gay, so—”

    Summary

    After getting engaged, Eddie and Richie agreed to abstain from sex until their wedding night, but it’s easier said than done.

    An excerpt from this work:

    Eddie’s annoyed. And he has no one to blame but himself. After he’d proposed and Richie had said yes, they’d planned this wonderful, beautiful wedding, a summer wedding in New York, for all of their family and their friends and it was going to be perfect, just perfect, and Eddie knew that. But then he had to go and suggest, two months before the actual ceremony, that they refrain from having sex again until their wedding night.

    Richie had agreed, after a lot of protesting and arguing, but Eddie held firm. He convinced Richie that abstaining would make their first time together as husbands all the more special. And Eddie believed that, he really did, but he forgot that he also had to live with Richie up until the wedding.
