    Summary

    The first clear thought that Richard has, when Áine tells him about her stay in rehab, in the midst of his tangled feelings of sorrow and surprise and worry, is "Well, that explains a lot, then."

    "Does it now," Áine says, her eyebrows flying up and her voice getting sharp, and that's when Richard realizes he's actually said it out loud, shit and fuck.

    Summary

    They don’t talk about it.

    Shona doesn’t bring up Vish or engagements or wedding plans. She never wears a ring when they’re together and her finger is bare the one time Charlotte accidentally runs into her at the coffee shop across the street from their building.

    Charlotte can’t bring herself to ask questions. She doesn’t know if it’s because she’s scared of the answers or if she’s scared to push her away, but Shona doesn’t say anything, so they pretend.

    Summary

    When Áine buzzes the door, she’s got a cake tucked under her arm and her new set of underwear under her clothes, dessert and after-dessert shenanigans all planned out for tonight, so the last thing she wants to see is Étienne answering the door with a deeply unhappy expression on his face.

    Summary

    “Oh my God,” Áine says, laughter rising up in her voice. “What is this?”

    Richard glances up from the stove, but it’s too late--Áine is looking through a manuscript of the book that’s making through the second round of edits at Richard’s work, and with her unerring nose for the ridiculous, she’s opened it to one of the tabbed places with the...incredible awkward sex scene that Richard is doing his level best to rework into something less horrific.

    Summary

    Étienne is at a sleepover: they dropped him off together and came back for a decaf coffee and fancy Waitrose biscuits, which turned into wine, which turned into — well. Áine pressed up against the cupboard by the kettle, Richard’s stupid posh tap digging in her back.
