    Summary

    He reaches forward with a shaking hand, clutching Jongseong’s sleeve. The living room is alive with the sounds of all of their friends screaming and laughing. There is life in the house— life that makes a house a home— and yet Heeseung is still lonely.

    It swallows him up. Wanting and longing and yearning, all blending together into the same thing. Synonyms for one another that don’t contrast. Doubt and fear and confusion.

    Jongseong wraps his arms around him and sighs into his ear. “I’m right here, Hyung. You can relax now.”

    Heeseung’s never been any good with words, and sometimes it kills him.

    --
    (Heeseung and Jongseong are "just friends" — or something like that.)

    “I don’t want to get too close. It might burn.”

    Jongseong points at the stars from where they sit. “Stars are pretty from afar, but most of them are dead by the time we see them. Sometimes burning is okay if it means you get to feel those emotions for what they really are. It might hurt, but it’ll be real. Don’t you want to feel something real?”

    Heeseung contemplates for a second before slumping down, nodding against Jongseong’s shoulder. “You’re real.”

    “But even if the entire world is now seeking me, you are the only soul who calls me by it softly. There is no other name I’d rather go by.”

    Summary

    Like a switch had been flipped, he was instantly reminded of the dry summer heat of a 2009 July afternoon, scampering around the village with a handful of other kids, stomping on shoelaces in hopes of making someone trip. Melted ice cream and losing games, screaming underwater and chasing one another in the pitch black hours of the night. Dried scabs and clumsy band-aid jobs, clammy fingers gripped tight onto the backs of each other’s t-shirts on the way back home, don’t look behind you, don’t look behind-

    Jay swallowed, thick and hard. How could he have forgotten?

    “Kim Sunoo,” He spoke at last, winced a bit at how strained his words came out. “It’s nice to see you again.”

    (Jay visits his grandparent’s village for the summer, and Kim Sunoo from the lakeside convenience store has grown. Cue the mental decline.)

    Summary

    “You wanna fuck him so bad.” Heeseung shakes his head in denial, that’s not the whole thing.

    Minjeong rolls her eyes, “You want to fuck him, then hold his hands afterward, and take him on dates and stare into his eyes like the little gay boy that you are.”
