    Summary

    Wei Ying’s thumb hovered over Lan Zhan’s number. It would be a brief phone conversation. Not even a minute. He would tell Lan Zhan what needed to be done, and Lan Zhan would say “mn” a bunch of times, and Wei Ying would spiral all day about how much Mr. Hot and Perfect All the Time probably hated his guts, and it would be fine. Emotionally, no different than any other Tuesday.

    Fine, sue him, he was a coward. He pulled up a new text and typed, My son is sick today. Going to doctor. Can you do smoothie hut call? 500m CRE + 250m LOC

    He sent the text. The ellipses rose. He waited.

    Or: During a long overdue divorce and messy custody battle, Wei Ying gets demoted to small business finance. There, he's partnered with a new closer who clearly hates him, until he finds out Lan Zhan is far more verbose — and dare he say flirtatious? — in writing than in speaking. Together, they have three months to meet their annual sales goal, or risk getting fired.

    Summary

    Finnick watched her intently, as if to study her. He was still smiling. Was he always smiling? Didn’t it hurt his face after a while? 

    Annie squinted up at him and asked, “Do I know you? From home, I mean. School.”

    Something flickered across his face — a slight dip of his perfectly plucked eyebrows, a twitch of the corners of his lips. Then it was gone. “I was homeschooled,” he offered, grinning like she was interviewing him for a TV special. “Well, boatschooled.”

    Or: At her 18th birthday party, District 4 expatriate and rising-star chef, Annie Cresta, meets the infamous victor-turned-escort, Finnick Odair. Homesick and depressed, she hires him for his most prized service: pretending, just one night a month, to be in love with her.

    Summary

    When Jesse looks up, the Fisherman is inspecting his face, tracking his scars the way people are usually too afraid to. Jesse has come to appreciate them. Like his old costume — the baggy clothes, the bad attitude — they keep people away.

    But apparently not this dude.

    Or: At the Haines Farmer's Market, Jesse befriends a fisherman who reminds him of Mr. White. Rather, the man he wanted Mr. White to be.

    Summary

    Caleb peers over the printer’s hood. The thing looks like a tanning bed, or maybe a coffin. Her frame is complete now. Tiny robot arms stretch threads of silicone flesh back and forth across her body. He does not let himself look at her face, the titanium skeleton, empty, eyeless. He presses his palm to the glass, feels the heat of the machine. He has waited this long. He can wait a little longer.

    Or: After the revolution, Caleb rebuilds Dolores, and finally brings her home.

    Summary

    Padmé had always been better at the mental half of the Jedi code—coercion, manipulation, meditation. Anakin had always been better at the physical half—beating shit up with his lightsaber.
