    Summary

    Jon spends his two free hours in the middle of the day in a little half-desk, half-cubicle in the far corner of the fourth floor of the main library, right next to a wall of large windows overlooking one of the student garages. The area is so secluded that Jon is pretty sure most people think the fourth floor of the main library ends about two shelves over. Well, at least everyone but the student that’s started to sit in the desk pressed against the back of his.

    Summary

    There is a bookshop, which stands on a street like any other, nestled between residential buildings and jostled in commercial crowds. Its keeper had a name once; it sounded like music on the lips of his beloved, but he can no longer recall it. He takes cash, and if you don’t have any money, a story will do just as well.

    A contemplation on guilt, loss, and love.

    Summary

    Jon knows that he loves Martin. He knows that Martin loves him. He knows that Martin knows that he loves him. Yet neither of them have said anything about it. Instead they opt to sneak looks, brush hands, and try to catch the other out.

    It would be aggravating if anyone was there to see.

    Summary

    “Is this— Can I—” Jon’s not even sure what he’s asking, not sure what Martin says yes to until he does, and then it feels obvious as anything to slide his arm around Martin’s waist, pull himself close and tuck himself into up under Martin’s chin, chest to chest. With a quiet hum, Martin’s arm slips around Jon’s shoulders, fingers tightening in his T-shirt as he holds Jon to him.

    “Your heart’s racing,” Martin murmurs into the darkness.

    Jon hums. There’s no need for denial now. “Yes.”

    “I…” Jon feels a long, shaky exhale against his hair. “Your heart’s beating.”

    “It is,” Jon tells him. He wonders how cold his fingers were, in that hospital bed, no life in his veins to warm them. “I’m right here.”
