    Summary

    It’s not the same as being quiet, but it’s not quite self preservation either. It just happens. His throat will click, catch on that ruined scar like a filter until nothing comes out. There are always words; constant thoughts running through his head in laps, each turn missing the memo that he doesn’t have to run anymore.

    Quiet kids were cute. Shy in their lack of response.

    Quiet adults were a concern.

    or: the five times Neil struggles to find his voice, and the one time he doesn’t

    Summary

    “It’s not a tic, if that’s what you’re suggesting,” Kevin replies almost offended. “It was something my mother taught me.”

    “Your mother taught you to fidget?” Andrew interjects again, continuing to pretend he’s still reading. Kevin hasn’t heard the pages turn for some time.

    “No. My mother didn’t teach me to fidget.” If anything, it was how she taught him not to fidget. He had always been a quiet kid. Where his mother was loud and commanded an audience; a younger Kevin was timid, voice lost amongst meetings and faceless adults all clamoring around a sport he knew nothing about and would eventually know nothing but. “One tap: attention. Two taps: a yes. Three taps—”

    Kevin pauses, realizing that admissions are a lot like dreams: once he says this, he can’t ever really take it back.

    “Three taps was ‘I love you.’”

    Summary

    Neil Josten and Andrew Minyard have been best friends since they were small. But attending college halfway across the country from each other has strained their relationship, and Andrew won’t take it anymore — as soon as term is over, they’re going on the road trip of a lifetime.
    Andrew can absolutely handle spending the entire summer with Neil in the passenger’s seat, sharing hotel rooms and cigarettes and diner booths. Because he’s definitely not in love with him.
    It’ll be fine.
