    Summary

    Crowley has never seen the name on Aziraphale's chest. He doesn't know the syllables of it, the shape of the transliterated letters. It doesn't matter. He'd gotten quite drunk once, sometime in the fourteenth century, and asked Aziraphale point-blank if his name was there.

    It was not.

    (He doesn't think about Aziraphale's name on his own chest, growing darker every year.)

    Summary

    It wasn’t as if he couldn’t tell his seemingly listless wanderings worried Aziraphale. Words never passed between them on it, but more often in the past weeks the angel would be waiting on the back porch. Aziraphale would scan the beach for the familiar cut of a lanky figure with fire touched hair, a balled up fist lowering from his chest only when he became visible again. Aziraphale would then disappear into the cottage before Crowley made it up the trail from the beach.

    Crowley didn’t need to see Aziraphale’s expressions in these moments with perfect clarity to know how it was crinkled. How those teeth fussed at a lower lip. Crowley didn’t need to see anything to feel the discourse he was causing between them by straying too far. By disappearing from sight for even such a short expanse of time. Aziraphale would say nothing when Crowley stepped in besides, “Mind the sand - use the rug, please.” and Crowley would nod, scrape his feet clean.

    There’d be no talk of his time away. Instead they’d drink some wine, maybe go out on the town for a proper meal. There was never any talk about all of this.

    Summary

    The story of before was filled with many apples. Of one red-haired angel with sticky fingers - a sticky mouth. A mouth perfect to place endless kisses upon. An angel whose wings glimmered with starlight when evening fell. One whom plucked those stars from his feathers and placed them with gentle care into the sky, one by one.

    And Aziraphale would applaud each birth of new light in the sky, kissing the freckles over his nose just as easily as his mouth.

    There was no name yet for this feeling that stirred in his chest.

    Summary

    Breathing isn’t of much importance to their bodies. Crowley commands focus on it all the same.

    In, out, one, two, again and again.

    Breathing is something living things do and each greedy intake of air reminds him of it. He’d watched Aziraphale’s chest rise and fall too, the desperation in his eyes hidden behind his glasses. They’d enjoyed a bottle of wine on the way to Crowley’s flat, sat close on the bus so that they were touching from hip to knee to heel. Neither of them talked of it. Talked of anything much at all, but the solid presence against his leg had let him know he wasn’t alone.

    It is roughly ten thirty PM on a Saturday night.

    The night that Armageddon didn’t.

    They are three bottles of wine in and Aziraphale is rambling.
