    Summary

    Ronan. His eyes, like swirling stardust. Adam wanted, irrationally, to swim in them, which was such a surrealist thing to even think, but now he’d thought about it and he was thinking about swimming. That was how he felt- bobbing in strange water, not sure if he had gills, but wanting desperately to dive underneath.

    (Adam wants this just as much as Ronan does, and is coming to terms with that.)

    Bookmark Notes:

    Adam didn’t say anything. His arms were going rigid. He was thinking way too fast, like a wheel rolling downhill. Before, when he had just happened to be taking care of Opal, it was one thing. He could not raise her. He could not ruin a child’s life. He could not ruin sweet, joyful Opal’s life with his nightmarishness.

    Ronan curled his arm around Adam and pulled him close. His lips brushed Adam’s hair.

    “You don’t have to,” Ronan said. “But if you did, you would be a good parent. A great parent. You already are. Opal loves you.”

    “I don’t know,” Adam said, muffled against Ronan’s shoulder. “I don’t… I don’t know.”

    “I promise you,” Ronan said, “you are. I’ll tell you every day if you want. You’re such a good person.”

    They breathed, in and out. They stayed there.

    Opal ran in from the kitchen and jumped in between them.

    “Adam,” she said, sounding serious. “I’m really sorry that I chewed up Kristen’s hair clips. I’m gonna tell Kristen sorry and I could make her new ones if she wanted.”

    “That’s a good idea,” Adam said.

    “You told me that when I hurt somebody’s feelings, I have to say sorry. Remember?”

    “Oh, yeah,” Adam said. A week ago, Opal had shrieked something at a random girl at Nino’s, who had started crying. Adam had explained to her about saying sorry.

    “So I’m gonna say sorry to Kristen,” she said. “’Cause I hurt her feelings.”
