This is absolutely gorgeous. You have their voices down so well. "That's actually kind of sweet," Kris says after a moment of thought. "Does this story end in a basement?"

I love the moment of the kiss, and the imagery, and the easiness of their friendship, and I love the fact that even though it's short it seems complicated, and lines like this Attention is something that takes energy, reminding him what he'd thought on the beach and now has to revise; it's been a long time since he invested energy in anything when it wasn't required and Kris stopped thinking he was allowed to require anything a long time ago.. It feels very real, idk.

*nods* I think it is complicated and simple at the same time? It's interesting to pursue when they're such different people in a lot of ways.

Thanks very much.
