    Stede comes back.

    Ed does too. It just takes a little longer.

    Summary

    and there are some like us,
    just walking, making our feet move ahead of us,
    a little bored, a little lost, a little angry,
    walking as though we were really going somewhere,
    walking as if there was something to see at Adelaide or maybe on King,
    something that will give a fair return for this use of shoe-leather,
    something that will make us smile with a strange new
    happiness, a lost but recovered joy.

    - Raymond Souster, “Yonge Street Saturday Night”

    Summary

    Eyes on the empty space where all the bars he’s ever been in keep their taps, he gives voice to something he’s been too afraid to say. Something he couldn’t even tell Rachel. “I don’t know what I want.”

    Patrick looks at David again. His gaze keeps returning to him, like he’s magnetized or something. He’s never watched someone this closely. When they made a drink, that is. At his old bar, the one a few blocks from their old apartment, most of the mixed drinks were half rum, half Coke.

    David slides the drink across the bar. “Then it might be time to find out.”

    ***

    Or, Patrick runs away to Toronto. David is the bartender--ahem, mixologist--at the bar he finds nearby.

    Summary

    won’t be flying out until the morning now thanks so much for your support xo

    Alexis replied almost instantaneously: Yum! a whole night to myself!!!!

    David tossed his phone into his lap, throwing up a hand. “Unbelievable.”

    On the other side of the power outlet, the guy was making a heartfelt attempt at giving David some privacy, pointedly ignoring his theatrics. Only now, David was almost desperate for some pithy small talk, or a chance to commiserate about this miserable fucking situation they found themselves in. Perhaps even a drop of sympathy, which he clearly wasn’t going to receive from any of the contacts in his phone.

    David cleared his throat and shifted toward the man. “So,” he began. “What brings you to Toronto Pearson International Airport this fine evening?”

    The guy looked up at David like he couldn’t believe he had actually deigned to speak to him. He stared at David for a beat longer before glancing over his shoulder, looking out the window he was leaning against.

    He turned back to David. “Someone told me the weather was great this time of year.”

    AU. David and Patrick get snowed in at the airport. Sometimes, it only takes three days to fall in love.
