2 Works in Danny Briere & Claude Giroux
Dani's had a good career and has decided it's time to retire and where else to do it by in Philly, where she had the best successes and the happiest times of her life. Even if she's had a few regrets, it was a good run and a good ceremony.
And a mindblowing night with Claude, whom she may or may not have a mutual pining situation going on with.
A curveball in the shape of a child gets her and Claude sharing a much closer space than they had been used to and they both have to decide if it's worth stepping up to the plate, or keeping silent and missing out.
They’re not old enough to not need Claude, not yet, but they’re old enough to not need him there every minute of every day, and Claude’s not so blind that he doesn’t see that. He’s old enough that he doesn’t need them like that anymore, either, and that’s the point.
In which the Brieres grow up and Claude moves out... Or tries to, anyway.
