    Summary

    "I can taste that- fucking chocolate, the fucking cinnamon."

    "I wonder who's fault that is," Addy's voice is sly, and Beth's adoring gaze contorts into a half-glare.

    "...I'm not complaining," She concedes after a pause, though stubbornly. "In fact," she continues, her tone shifting deviously to match Addy's, "It's kind of nice, from your tongue. You got any more where that came from?"

    "Sure," Addy answers, still smiling. "We've got all day, and I've got to forget the boy."

    Summary

    [Reposting this fic because I'm pretty sure it didn't post to the fandom tag the first time and I'm only just realising???? Hello if you've already read this I just rearranged the tags & notes a little]

    The stability of where she stands in the school gym or on the football field is all she has now. Held up by the one rule her squad has always known—

    Eyes on your girl.

    And she knows she's cursed to adhere to it, no matter how heavily her own girl's eyes become clouded over by wanderlust. Even if she ends up unable to see her at all, because despite their everything, she's the rope tethering Addy to this tight-knit town.

    Summary

    She always knew Addy had a penchant for self-deception, but she thought it was an open secret, denial with a wink and a nudge. How could Addy bury things so completely — a kiss in the rain, a hand under the covers, the way she dug her fingers into Beth’s knotted muscle — when Beth couldn’t even walk through the mall without wanting to puke from the smell of her body spray?
