    Summary

    “You know,” Crowley muttered. “We are retired.”

    “Is that what we’re calling it, then?” Aziraphale chuckled at the thought. Retired. “Surely Gabriel will be sending me a nice gold watch any day now. Probably lost in the post.” Crowley laughed.

    “Well, whatever we call it, our head offices don’t seem to want anything to do with us,” Crowley deliberated. “At least, not for the moment. And I mean, we’re not exactly spry young 4,000-and-somethings anymore,” he continued.

    “Is there a point, dear?” Aziraphale asked, but his tone was fond.

    “The point is.” Crowley smiled, remembering a conversation much like this one, a lifetime ago. He screwed up his courage and came out with it. “Don’t you think it’s time that we… I don’t know.” The blush was creeping back. “Settled-down-in-the-country-or-something?”

    Summary

    Crowley dresses like a walking scandal and enters A.Z. Fell & Co with the intention of ruffling some feathers (both literal and proverbial, mind) before inviting his angel out for dinner and a fabulous bottle of wine.

    His plan, as usual, backfires dramatically.

    Summary

    The important thing, Crowley tells himself -- the most important thing -- is Adam, his brilliant, creative, empathetic nephew. Being fourteen's hard enough; the kid didn't ask to deal with the weight of the world on top of it.

    And if taking care of Adam means Crowley has to tough it out at a job he can’t stand, so be it.

    And if Crowley's job means that Adam’s charming English teacher is NOT a romantic possibility, well, that's just how things go.

    But the occasional drink with Aziraphale proves hard to resist. They frequent the same pub, so who can object to them saying hello? Briefly sharing a table? Perhaps a little conversation? The painful knowledge that it can’t be anything more -- not without somebody getting fired or sued or both -- well, that can't be helped.

    Until Crowley stumbles onto a terribly reckless idea...
