2 Works in Nathan Ford & Alec Hardison
The car saleswoman pats the top of what is soon to be the latest model of Lucille and says, "This van is good down to the bones," and Hardison wants to do the same to Eliot, to Parker. Minus the van part, obviously, but he wants to touch them. To say that phrase. Good down to the bones. The words stick with him as he drives the new van back to the brewpub, and he turns them over and over in his brain as he works on outfitting her. Down to the bones. Good. Good down to the bones.
Every sibling thinks they've got it the hardest.
