AU. 2015. With his husband John eight years in the grave, Alex returns to their summer home on Prince Edward Island to clean out mementos and put the house up for sale. He's resigned himself to living the rest of his life as though there's a vital piece missing, but the curious, eccentric stranger living next door rejuvenates Alex's interest in a second chance at love.
"I think you’re lying.” Geddy states, cold-faced as he slides his glasses off his face to wipe off the steam accumulated from his coffee. Alex pauses, his mouth full of coffee, then swallows slowly...

“You could say that. Look, I haven't been sleeping. So, I drank a little too much wine, then took some pills before bed. Then I had a dream about the night of the accident. It was like I was reliving it. The way everything had happened. Kirk, I’ve never remembered it so vividly as I did this time.” He stared into his dark brown eyes, seeing the same pain he felt....

Man, this is getting so crazy! There are just so many layers being revealed all at once, and it seems like Alex just keeps digging himself into holes that he might not be able to get out of. I had a feeling there was something weird about Neil! He's just always been very vague whenever he answered one of Alex's questions, never fully giving out any information. But I've got a feeling that's going to change soon. And man, the fact that Allan doesn't know much about this is pretty crazy too...I'm wondering if he might be in trouble if he involves himself further in this, or if it's already too late for him. And when will Alex give John all the details? He still hasn't told him about the money, or even much about what he's uncovered from investigating what happened to Geddy. Involving John might put him in danger as well, though...unless he's already there, like Allan might be. And holy shit, that ending! I can't wait to see how Alex will handle THIS! Was it Neil, or does Neil just know things? Whatever it may be, I don't see how Alex can possibly get out of this... —Dalauranator, for farewelltokings's Open Secrets
I think this is a really interesting way you're taking this. Even though Eddie still did wrong to Mike, I'm glad to see there is a bigger reason behind it [not that I'm excusing his actions from the past in any way, shape, or form] but that also begs the question of what kind of trouble is Eddie in
I am glad Mike and Stone finally get to be happy though. Great going and I can't wait to see more —blacksapphire, for bleed-the-sickman's Everything Was Black
