    Summary

    I’d like to think of this as a throwback to Patricia Highsmith’s noir genre. What if two ordinary people, Therese Belivet and Carol Aird, found themselves embroiled in events spinning rapidly out of control? Who is to be trusted? What is to be believed? Can one of them actually trust her lover’s memories of the events?

    Summary

    Therese let out a very tired sigh and attempted to come up with an excuse to not go when she was interrupted by the most enchanting voice she had ever heard.

    "Gone with the Wind? I wasn't expecting seeing someone as young as you watching something like that."

    Therese looked up from her phone to an unbelievably beautiful, practically perfect, tall, blonde woman. Her hair was up in a bun, she was wearing running shorts, a loose t-shirt that showed her perfectly sculpted collar bones, and.... were those tights?

    "I didn't mean that to sound rude. I just didn't expect that to be your movie choice."

    Therese realized she hadn't said anything yet to the vision that was standing in front of her.

    For city girl Therese Belivet, a quiet life on the road is the perfect antidote to her chaotic New York past. Living in a van, travelling from one small town to the next, photographing it all as she goes. Only now, she's stuck in Waterloo, because how can she leave when the alluring Carol Aird keeps showing up at the diner she works at? Inspired by the film Nomadland.

    Summary

    This story blends two soulmates prompts:
    1.- People are born with their soulmate's name on their chest.
    2.- Person A wants to cover the name of their soulmate because they don't like the idea of someone/something dictating who you have to be with for the rest of your life. Person B is the tattoo artist who will do the cover.

    Summary

    All her life, Therese has been told to share.

    Share this, share that. Sharing is caring and if you don’t share, you don’t care, and therefore, you are a terrible person. Share your toys with the other kids who will no doubt lose them or take them, only to break them when you ask politely if you can pretty please have them back. Share your pencils with the other kids in your group, all of whom have somehow neglected to bring their own.

    More humiliatingly, share your mother with her new stranger husband and her unborn child, whom she already evidently loves more than you.

    Now Therese, in her much more independent adult life, chooses to be greedier. And when Therese has an opportunity to fall wholly, maybe even irrevocably in love with one Carol Ross, and have those same feelings reciprocated, Therese takes it. She takes it all.

     

    This one’s mine.
