Characters/Pairings: Matthew
Rating: AA
Summary: Another summer passes to fall...
Notes: dog_daies, July 6th, 2012, 'I want summer back'

Instead of Christmas and New Year's as markers for the passing of time, Matthew used the annual Back-to-School set at the store. It wasn't that he had any thoughts of returning - he still really didn't know what he wanted to be when he grew up, if he wanted to grow up and do something...

Pens, paper, binders, backpacks... They popped up in the middle of the hottest part of summer and were gone by the time actual school busses were on the roads.

Another year...

New Year's was too much of a blur - working overnight and clearancing out Christmas and generally trying to recover the store after the hordes had done their worst - so Back-to-School it was...

One day he was filling bins with twenty-nine cent bottles of glue and wondering if Tyler would have any use for a notebook with Optimus Prime on it... It seemed like the next he was pushing everything to one aisle, getting ready to put out Halloween decorations and wondering when he'd started wearing his hoodie and not putting his windows down on the drive home.

Another year had passed.

What had he really done with it?

If only...

"I want summer back."
