    Summary

    This was not Nancy’s destination when she sped away from Ryan’s. Too caught up in her own angry and embarrassed thoughts, she simply drove until she stopped, nowhere particular in mind.

    Right in front of Ace’s house.

    Nancy doesn’t ponder on why her subconscious would lead her here. She does, however, wonder if being here is a bad idea.

    According to everyone, she’s full of those lately.

    Summary

    “I can’t ask you to do this.”

    Ace is sitting behind Florence’s steering wheel, hands at 10 and 2 and gripping it so tightly they look like topographical maps — tendons as mountain ridges, veins winding like mighty rivers. His face is lit only by the lamppost on the curb; it leaves half of his profile cloaked in deep black, the other painted a bloodless, muted yellow. 

    For the first time, Nancy can look at him and see that he’s older than her. The extra years are drawn in the lines framing his full lips, in the purplish shadows haunting his hollow eyes. 

    “You’re not asking,” she says, clicking the seatbelt around her waist and staring straight ahead, not allowing herself a final glimpse of her house, squatting familiar and forsaken in the rearview mirror. “Let’s go.”

    Summary

    Instead he kisses be right back into her cheek and slips by her, hands on her hips to shift her out of the way. He’s down the stairs and jogging across the lawn toward Florence before she can comprehend and back just as quickly, cardigan hanging from his fingers.

    She’d made fun of the purchase last week, calling him an “old man” with an “old man sweater”, but he felt it a valid alternative to his pullovers. He usually layers under, why not over?

    It’s her shoulders he drapes it over now, reaching down to thread their fingers together. He smiles, “A plausible excuse for our escape.”

    ----

    When grief makes an unanticipated appearance, Ace is there to help Nancy through it.

    Summary

    Some post 2x18 spec from Nancy's pov.

    -/-

    She sits cautiously on the ground, near the edge of the cliff, but not so close that it causes her alarm. She presses her knees against her chest for warmth despite her layers of tank top, sweater, and jacket. Watching the waves crash upon the rocks below, the night providing a familiar backdrop, she recalls what used to come to mind when she viewed the scene before her.
