    Summary

    I stole to your side
    Tormented by my choice
    I couldn't see your face
    Yet trembled at your voice
     
    And I held you
    And I touched you
    And embraced you
    And I felt you

     And with every breath and every sigh
    I felt no longer scared
    I felt no longer shy
    At last our feelings bared
    Beneath a moonless sky

    ~ "Beneath A Moonless Sky", Love Never Dies 

    Post Oak Room.

    When Carol first sees Therese – standing several feet away – it's as though she is a ghost. The dim lights make her pale skin glow and the cigarette smoke wisps around her, making Therese appear almost ethereal; it be fitting, having likened the young woman to an angel many times over the course of their affair.

    Summary

    "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."

    -X-X-X-X-

    Four years suffering through a teaching degree and this is what she has to look forward to: a classroom where she can put up cat and puppy posters as she sees fit.

    “Living the dream, Therese,” she sighs quietly.

    “Miss Belivet?”

    The voice that calls her is feminine and smoky, deeper than she’s used to in her small social circle. For some reason unknown to Therese, the tone causes a shiver to run down the back of her neck.

    Summary

    When Carol finds out that Harge has taken Rindy away for Thanksgiving, she decides, with the help of Abby, Georgina, Eilis, and Therese, to form a "Friendsgiving" instead. At Abby's idyllic stone house in the country, the unlikely group celebrates a Thanksgiving full of food, love, and much joy.

    Notes: It's been awhile for me, but though I'm not American, Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays (we celebrate ours in October). I have had a lot of requests for another Carol fic and to include a reappearance of Eilis Lacey, from the novel/movie "Brooklyn". Here is that fic - and I hope to be able to write more now that life has slowed down a bit for me! As always, thanks for reading and commenting. It means a lot.

    Warning: This is an ageplay fic and as such, I encourage you to read the tags. I am not responsible for your like or dislike of the fic, so please consider yourself warned. Thanks.
