And really, all of the interns knew what was going on the moment Cecil said ‘I fell in love instantly’. Even the new ones, the ones who brought coffee to Cecil, or the ones who filed paperwork for Cecil, or the ones who lost fingers in the paper shredder (not for Cecil, on accident, of course, how could you think such a thing), even they knew what was happening between Cecil and Carlos. It didn’t take a rocket scientist or, well, any kind of scientist to figure out, save for Carlos.

See, Cecil has this thing. I mean, of course he has many things, many many things, most of them great things, most of them things Carlos would love to write home to his father and sister and high school bully about if he could obtain stamps or pens or a will to forgive any of those people.
But Cecil has a thing where he cannot fall asleep unless it is after 2:22 AM.
Carlos saw Earl Harlan for the first—and last—time in the Ralph’s. Just a quick, uninterested glance, nothing significant (not like some of the looks he gets from people who know, people who point and whisper to their maybe-children, maybe-otherworldly ruler, “that’s Carlos, you see, look at his hair” and jesus, it is so hard to shop for groceries when a radio celebrity is twitterpated with you). And of course Carlos didn’t know, nor would Cecil want him to know. Because Harlan didn’t matter anymore, and Cecil’s heart was too big that Carlos believed it was scientifically possible to lose anger and bitterness inside it.
