    Summary

    As his weight shifts across creaking floorboards and he pries open the window of the largest of the three bedrooms, Dick tries to picture himself living in the space. The impossible idea of furniture occupying it, the echoing beats of his footsteps and breathing that would be dampened by rugs and blankets and curtains once furnished. It's difficult. Dick leans out the window slightly, his breath a puff of white, and looks at the property from a different angle. He can almost see through the large oak tree to where the drive connects with the main road, and his drooping mailbox, and the aborted fence that he needs to add to one of his lists.

    He takes stock of the house, and feels a tenderness towards it that is slightly embarrassing - he wants to apologize for finding it wanting, for planning to change it, as though the wood of the floors under his feet were heaving sighs every time he moves across it and finds another thing that needs repair.

    Summary

    He twirls the glass in his hand and Dick wonders if he’s thinking about breaking it. Like watching the crystal hit the wooden floorboards and shatter into pieces might make his heart skip a beat and make him feel alive in ways that jumping out of airplanes probably doesn’t anymore now.

     

    “Is that why you joined the paratroopers, Nix? Because you thought you wouldn’t come back?”

     

    “No. I joined the paratroopers because I knew it was where you would be.”

     

    (Or, conversations that define them.)

    Summary

    "Hey," Nix said, dropping down beside him. "You okay?"

    Dick turned his head to look at him and felt the whole forest tilt on its side. He closed his eyes for a moment, and when he opened them the dizzy spell had passed. He needed to get his head screwed on straight. People were counting on him. This wasn't the time to crack up, if there ever was a time.

    Or, Dick gets hurt in the same attack that got Harry, and decides to keep it to himself. The only trouble is, he should have counted on Nix noticing.
