"Some of us would heal better if we'd talk to our friends. Heal with us. Get together with Alicia and Katie and have a good cry or something. We're worried about you. If you keep up like this you'll fall off your broom and break your neck one of these days."

Jim shrugs and goes back to pushing buttons and staring at the screen, where he's playing a pretty terrible game of John Madden Football.

"Don't you have work tomorrow?" Mark says.

"Yeah," Jim says, and his team loses another fourth down. "Fuck," Jim mutters, which is odd. Normally he hardly ever swears.

"Man, don't worry about your Sperrys. I read that said soap and water cleans them up just fine."

Assured that his rare and beautiful shoes can be salvaged, Ezra smiles, completely content.

"Ros, what would I do without you?"

"Honestly," Rostam grins, "it doesn't even bear thinking about."

“You don’t have to do this,” is what he finally grits out, and she can just imagine his fingers sliding on the unvarnished wood, his mouth tight, his usually kempt hair falling down over his eyes.

"We did follow it," Scott says, patiently. "That was how we got away from there. We didn't cross through the fields. At least not after I got you to wake up."

"I guess we went off it at some point," Mike says. It sounds wrong, but he's so tired.

"There's no road that can take you all around the world," Scott tells him. "They all stop, or go back on themselves, or become a different place. You've got to meet the ocean some time."

"I've never been to the ocean," Mike says.

"Regardless," Scott says, "it's still there."

"I guess so," Mike says. "I don't, I don't know."

"What are you at, Stu?" The corresponding shove is nothing more than a gentle pressure applied with fingertips. "You never got your grand gay adventure and you thought you'd try me?"

Refusing to be moved Dakin takes Scripps amused expression as encouragement. "Can't fault my logic."

Scripps just looks down at the hand that settles on the bicep of his crossed arms and arches an eyebrow. "Contrary, I think I can, and will. I'm a celibate, heterosexual, with no urge whatsoever to feed into your God complex. Why would I ever fancy you?"

Dakin lets his bravado lead him further, trusting in it the way he trusts all things learned from practice and repetition. "You like God."

"Aye." Scripps keeps still, seemingly content to let the moment play out between them. "But you aren't Him."

“All right,” Scripps answers, finally, and so they end up stumbling down the bright deserted streets to Dakin’s college, bumping into each other and laughing. The gate bangs decisively behind them; and once in the door to his room Dakin turns and stops so that Scripps runs into him, clutching automatically at his sleeve and only just saving them from a clash of foreheads.

“What,” he starts to say, exasperated, but then Dakin tilts his head very deliberately, lifts his jaw. He’s shockingly close, inches away, and Scripps’s eyes have flickered to his mouth before he even realises it. Fuck. Fuck. He watches the triumphant twist of Dakin’s smile form, his own throat going abruptly dry, and then Dakin’s thumb lands just under his ear. Strokes a purposeful line down his jaw; and that, irrationally, makes startling electricity jump down his spine.

“Oh, God,” he says, without thinking. Dakin grins at that, and suddenly he’s even closer, leaning in. Leaning -

“Dakin,” Scripps says, and his voice’s gone harsher than he’s ever heard it, harsher than he’s ever needed it to be before. His hands are tight on Dakin’s shoulders, holding him away. “No.”

[excerpts]
"What? You took him out for one drink and he didn't follow you home and ravish you immediately? How shall you live with the shame?" Scripps was using his declaiming-voice, composing dialogue as he spoke.

"You can stop sounding so damn pleased with yourself," Dakin told him. "He had work to do -- I'm seeing him again on Friday."

"Yeah, I think I'd make sure I had work to do. If I were meeting you for a drink and I wasn't sure that I wanted anything else to happen."

"Scripps, you sly dog, I think that was a compliment. But he suggested the second drink, not me."

Scripps peers at him. "I know you're not scared – or, not in the usual way. What are you afraid of, then?"

Honestly, Dakin's not quite sure himself. Part of it is that he could have approached Irwin at any time in the past fourteen years and he wants to trust the instinct in him that kept him from doing it.

Then again, history weighing down on him is part of the problem, and the longer he draws it out, the worse it will get.

"Maybe I just don't want 'proper feelings' at all," he says, and Scripps rolls his eyes.

"Things haven't changed that much, then." That's a point in favor of calling, probably.

Or if he'd pushed, a little harder a little sooner, and Irwin had said yes. Right then, right there. In the classroom. You want it, why wait? and there'd have been the clunk of the key in the lock and the sharp rattle of the blind over the door, and then he'd have been leaning against the front desk, Irwin's desk, trousers tumbling down his legs and his dick hanging out, peeking out underneath his shirt.
