Read an Excerpt

The wind blew hard and ice-cold up here. Marc imagined the building as silvery and sleek, swaying ever so slightly beneath his feet. He couldn't even smell the rotted fish, pissy old man's pants scent of the city from this high. What had Bev told him? Fifteen stories? Thirty? Thirty-five?

More?

It hadn't felt real. He hadn't even known Pablo was there at first. Bev kept the list of people with press passes and he really didn't care much who came, who asked the endless questions. It was just a little tease--a showing of particular pieces of his newer series. It was easy--drinks and snacks and chat with the reporters, Bev had said. Look handsome, she said. Be talented, bright, witty Mac Allen and leave rumbly, nervous, skinny Marc MacAllen at home. It was supposed to be fun. It was supposed to be easy.

It wasn't supposed to tear a gash down the center of his life.

He slipped, wristwatch banging against the rail, barking out the ridiculously early time in the emotionless programmed voice that belonged on a spaceship or a computer or a commercial for men's razors. Piet barked and moved to push between him and the threat of open, empty sky, love overcoming obedience yet again.

Marc let Piet move him towards the building, kneeling down to pet the soft, silken fur gently. Piet groaned softly, wet tongue licking his chin, tail swishing against the concrete as it wagged.

It occurred to him that he didn't know what Pablo looked like, anymore than he could know the color of Piet's fur or Marge's eyes. That's when he knew the whole thing had been real, that Pablo had found him and gone again without even a handful of dead words.

When he fantasized about Pablo, he could see.

Piet'sshoulders were steady and strong and supported him as he sobbed, his soft sounds drowned by the sounds of clinking glasses and dry laughter.
