    Summary

    The dam finally breaks.

    “I love you,” and she couldn’t hold the words back if she tried but she doesn’t even want to, “so much, Fjord.” His thumb stills but he doesn’t let go of her hand, eyes tracking across her face as if he’s looking for something.

    Jester has nothing left to hide.

    “And it’s okay if you don’t feel the same way. I’ll be okay. I just needed you to know.” Fjord nods imperceptibly, just to himself, and then he squeezes her hand, reaches up to cradle her jaw with his free one, and slowly ducks down towards her.

    Jester doesn’t realizes what he’s doing until his warm mouth is pressed against hers. She’s frozen for a moment, staring at his closed eyelids and holding her breath, but then his thumb brushes her cheek and his nose nudges hers, and this is real.

    Summary

    It was a vacation, and a much needed one. There was food and drink whenever they wanted, cabanas and hammocks set up in a row well above the hide tide line, and the air was filled with the smell of salt and beach roses and the sound of the wind in the beach grass. And despite all that, Beau was already restless.

    “Hey Beau,” Jester whispered in her ear. “Are you awake?”

    Oh thank fuck. “Yeah. Couldn’t sleep.”

    “You know what we should do?” Jester’s smile was bright in the dark. “We should sneak into my old room.”

    Summary

    Beau's never really had a friend before. Except for the Traveler, Jester hasn't really, either.

    It's a bit of a learning experience.
