4 Works in Beth Boland/Annie Marks
What happens when Beth and her twin sister Bella rob fine and frugal.
“Why what? ”
“Why him? ”
“What are even talking about? ”
“It’s like you’re losing your mind”
“You’re putting yourself in this insane situations. Is it the tattoos? Is that it? ”
“The danger, the strange. I don’t get it”
Beth is sercretly a wizard, and Rio knows and helps her.
Beth needs a pep talk from Annie before she can hook up with Rio in her van; Rio senses Beth is nervous and gets her talking to relax her.
Beth needs a second to regroup, so she drops Rio’s hand and turns to face him right before they get to the exit. Rio doesn’t look all that surprised, which makes Beth feel like he assumes she was never going to go through with it, and even though he’s more right than wrong, this offends her. Beth’s so tired of playing into everyone’s expectations of her as a boring, dowdy housewife, so somehow his acceptance only steels her resolve.
She’s going to hook up with this man with a neck tattoo in her car in a parking lot, and nothing is going to stop her—except Rio changing his mind, or maybe some sort of natural disaster, or if Ruby calls because there’s some sort of kid emergency or—
Beth really needs to stop thinking.
