    Summary

    His mouth tastes like coffee. Not good coffee, the kind you find at a gas station for a dollar any size. And it tastes old, like either he had it a while ago, or he settled for old coffee. Neither option is out of the question. There’s no question of what he’s trying to say, what he’s telling her with no words.

    Goodbye.

    Summary

    AU set in the Curse Workers' world, and in which Rey is an assassin.

    -------

    “You want me to kill Governor Solo?” Rey asks Luke, feigning casualty, but she’s already feeling overwhelmed at the thought of all that security she’s going to have to get through. Important politicians and celebrities often hand-pick workers for their protection teams, so that’s something to think through too.

    “No. If I wanted him dead, I’d have Tim on the job.” Luke doesn’t look at Rey when he talks. Instead, he’s staring out those huge glass windows, his eyes fixed on the treetops of Central Park, contemplating the world outside of his control. It’s October now, early fall, and a thin layer of frost dusts the Great Lawn, like a smattering of haphazard tinsel. Dusk is settling, and even perched on a down-stuffed sofa underneath an absurdly expensive chandelier, the night seems dark and ominous. Heavy, and weighted. Full of things that make you want to look over your shoulder.

    Rey bites down on her thumb, cracking the nail between her teeth. A bead of blood wells up across the skin of her cuticle. “So, what do you want?”

    Summary

    The curly-haired boy runs his hand over his face, taking a deep breath. And then he looks at Louis, eyes glassy like he might cry. "That doesn't explain why I can't stop fucking thinking about you. Everything is fuzzy and hard to remember except you. I can't get you out of my head. I want you, I fucking want you so bad, Louis, and I don't know why."

     

    The only luck Louis has ever believed in is the luck that comes from working. He’s never really believed in love, either. In this world, if something is too good to be true, it’s because it’s a con.
