Chapter 17: The Franklins

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

“Man, if this isn’t the worst cup of coffee you’ve ever had, I… y’know, actually, the coffee from the place we ate at last night is worse. Never mind.”

I sip, wince, and pick apart a biscuit. I pop a bite in my mouth and, amazingly, my stomach settles a little. I feel marginally less… bile-green.

Seeing this, Duo teases, “You had me fooled. That night outside the market, when you were doing the whole pause-before-the-puke number, I figured you were drawing from experience.”

“I’m pretty good at faking it.”

“So… what you’re telling me is last night wasn’t good for you after all.”

Chapter 16: Favorite Colors

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

I miss my target. The cue ball smacks against one of Duo’s, lining it up perfectly in an ideal angle.

Looking up, I find Duo glaring at me with exasperated amusement. He’s not angry that I’d “helped” him.

I step back and wait to see if he’ll accept it.

He chalks his cue stick and strides over. Wary of his reaction, I make room.

He rolls his eyes. “You could have just asked.”

“I just did.”

“With words, hot shot.”

Chapter 15: Cold Water, Warm Arms

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

My hands curl into fists. The blood buzzes in my veins. I try to focus on breathing, but every inhalation brings Trowa’s scent with it. Every moment, more of his body heat seeps into me.

I suddenly think of those cheerful, flat, round, yellow flowers on Earth — dandelions. Cute little things. They look so sturdy. Hardy and happy. And they’re everywhere, right? Because I guess they’re some kind of weed. No one’s been able to eradicate them; I’ve got to admire the tenacity of their survival. Survival that’s possible thanks to the fact that, eventually, each and every one of those bright, sunny flowers turns into a ghostly sphere of seeds. Hundreds of seeds drifting on the breeze like ghosts.

That is exactly what I am right now: one breath away from scattering into the ether, destination unknown.

Chapter 14: Final Hours

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

I glance at the time. Ten hours.

Trowa lowers his half-eaten sandwich. I’m pretty sure he knows what I’m counting down to, but why the hell is he here at all?

“What do you want from me?” I finally ask. Almost seven days too late.

“I’m not sure,” he answers after a long moment. “I want… the chance to find out what I want from you.”

I shouldn’t have asked. Jesus Christ. I am not gonna cry today. Not today.

Chapter 13: Detoxing Nightmares

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

“Do I tie you to a bed frame or just hold on?”

He gives himself a shake, struggling to concentrate on what I’m saying. “Either. Bed frame is messier. Won’t make it to the toilet in time.”

“Holding on, it is.” I know I don’t imagine his look of relief. Jesus. Had he really thought I’d leave him to soil his britches when he’d mashed on my account in the first place? And why am I having such a damn hard time stopping myself from yelling at him over being surprised?

Chapter 12: Church Meeting

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

I wait until we’re on a solid safeline, out in the open with a comfortable buffer between us and the nearest pedestrians, to check something else kinda-sorta-maybe important, “Drege called us a pair. Called me your boss. You do know what that means around here, don’t you?”

He shrugs. “A guy who prefers to call the shots and be on top, I imagine.”

His tone is way too casual for him to have a clue. “Um... kind of, er…” Fuck. How to say this? And why the hell had I volunteered to explain?

Because I’m a moron, that’s why.

Chapter 11: Just Noise

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

Trowa firmly, almost roughly, caresses my back and shoulders as if trying to warm me. Jesus. He still hasn’t figured out that it’s a losing battle. Once Death has touched you, that’s it. You’re stone cold.

I twist, shove, squiggle. The world spins. My stomach lurches into my throat.

“Stop pushing me away,” he pleads on a murmur. “Pretend I’m someone else if you need to.”

What a moron. “I’m not gonna do that to you. Idiot.” It wouldn’t make a difference to Death, anyway. That bastard’s sight is twenty-twenty.

Chapter 10: Zipline

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

The shadows are moving.

Bodies in the darkness.

Quiet whispers.

“Fuck, the big one’s mashing.”

“Drop him. We need the skin.”

My legs are shaking, trembling with suppressed tension, but my head feels like it’s about to spin off of my shoulders. It’s only been six seconds. I don’t have two minutes. I can’t afford to wait.

Chapter 9: Sweet Dreams

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

I’m moving before I have a plan, before I even think it through. I grab his shoulder, turning him to face me, and I snarl, “Enough. Enough of this.”

He blinks at me, startled, stiff, braced for a fight. That’s the only reason I don’t shake him silly.

“I won’t make you tell me,” I rashly promise. “But if you’re determined to finish what you started in three and a half days, then give yourself to those days, damn it.”

His jaw clenches.

I inform him, “Continuing on this way is a waste, Duo. A waste of you.”

He stares at me with eyes that are wide and empty of anger. He looks so young. Lost. How do I make him understand that I’ve found him? How do I make that be enough?
