    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Julia says. She lets her bag drop to the floor, her eyes wide as she walks around the statue. “Q, this is amazing. I knew you had talent from the stuff you made at Columbia, but this—wow.”

    “Thanks,” Quentin says tightly. He looks over the sculpture, trying to imagine seeing it with Julia’s eyes. All he sees are the imperfections—the cracks in the clay that he needs to fill, the indentations of his fingers he needs to smooth out, or the malformed spots he needs to revisit. But when he strips all that away and imagines that someone else made it, that a stranger’s hands spent so many hours recreating the love of his life—he can admit it’s the best thing he’s ever made.

    “Who is he?” Julia asks. “I don’t think I’ve met him. Pretty sure I would remember.”

    “You remember a couple of months ago, I told you I kept dreaming about a guy?”

    “Yeah? He’s—” She looks at the sculpture, and then back to Quentin. “No way. He’s real? You met him?” Her eyes are wide, a smile starting to form on her face.

    “Not exactly,” Quentin says.

He's an up-and-coming fashion designer on the edge of fame, with his own brand and an amazing crew, a NYC apartment, his face on magazine covers, the best friend and mentor anyone could ever ask for - and a boyfriend that's too perfect for words. But the best part? No one knows where he came from, or who he was before. His past has been buried for seven long years, and Eliot planned on keeping it that way.

    Until his boyfriend proposed, and it ended up in every gossip column in New York City.

    To keep his perfect life just the way he likes it, Eliot has to return to the one place he never wanted to see again, and take care of some long overdue, unfinished business. His still legal marriage to his high school sweetheart, Quentin Coldwater.

    Summary

    Quentin scowls at him, but after a moment, he pushes out a breath and lets his face soften. “I know— it’s just my brain. You know— like. They tell you therapy and meds are the, like, keys to the universe. And then you’re like the happy pod person smiling in his kayak on the commercial for Effexor.”

    “Okay,” Eliot says carefully. They’ve been through some version of this before, but the kayak— that’s new.

    “And then, like. They don’t tell you that, like, you might be able to get in the kayak and, like, force a smile? But the kayak is still headed for fucking waterfalls and rapids and shit. And you— you just never know when they’re fucking coming or how bad they’re going to be. Like maybe all the like— good, helpful shit is like a life jacket, but like the kayak is ripped to shreds and there’s a fucking— angry bear on one shore and a moose on the other.” Quentin pauses and fiddles with his fork, poking at a potato. “You know, moose are actually more dangerous than bears.”

    “I feel like you’ve mentioned that. But not in the context of a metaphor for life.”
