ya lit meme: eight otps (3/8) — adam parrish & ronan lynch
once, when adam had still lived in the trailer park, he had been pushing the lawn mower around the scraggly side yard when he realized that it was raining a mile away. he could smell it, the earthy scent of rain on dirt, but also the electric, restless smell of ozone. and he could see it: a hazy gray sheet of water blocking his view of the mountains. he could track the line of rain travelling across the vast dry field towards him. it was heavy and dark, and he knew he would get drenched if he stayed outside. it was coming from so far away that he had plenty of time to put the mower away and get under cover. instead, though, he just stood there and watched it approach. even at the last minute, as he heard the rain pounding the grass flat, he just stood there. he closed his eyes and let the storm soak him.
that was this kiss.
they kissed again. adam felt it in more than his lips.
she felt one thousand years old. she also felt like maybe she was a
condescending brat. she wanted her bike. she wanted her friends, who
were also one-thousand-year-old condescending brats. she wanted to live
in a world where she was surrounded by one-thousand-year-old
When Adam kissed him, it was every mile per hour Ronan had ever gone over the speed limit. It was every window-down, goose-bumps-on-skin, teeth-chattering-cold night drive. It was Adam’s ribs under Ronan’s hands and Adam’s mouth on his mouth, again and again and again. It was stubble on his lips and Ronan having to stop, to get his breath, to restart his heart. They were both hungry animals, but Adam had been starving for far longer.

Adam: *gets wallet out*
cashier: *sees numerous pics of Gansey inside his wallet* oh how cute! is that your boyfriend?
Adam: haha no he’s my best friend, my boyfriend is right here
Ronan: *appears behind him* hi
cashier: ah, I’m so sorry for assuming!
Ronan: nah it’s okay we get that all the time, I even have his picture in my wallet
okay but i’m ready to bet $10 that the real reason adam doesn’t want to stay overnight in monmouth is that once he did and woke up to gansey laying on his side, one arm under his head, staring in awe at adam and whispering “magnificent………. pure perfection… @ god thou art a good man .. creating this …… even in the darkness of the moonless night he shines bright like a diamond (diamond) *chokes on tears* good LoRD adam parrish. parrish. adam. what a poetic name he has .. like a sound of a silent forest,,, a peaceful rivulet,,, a lucid sky,, his delicate eyelashes …. no contest. nono. *sighs dreamily* adam parrish”
Noah crouched over Gansey’s body. He said, for the last time, ‘You will
live because of Glendower. Someone else on the ley line is dying when
they should not, and so you will live when you should not.’(…) ’Goodbye,’ Noah said. ‘Don’t throw it away.’ He quietly slid from time.
