    Summary

    He stares up at her from a worn quilt spread out on the ground. He looks good — tan and rugged, cheeks sharp and stubbled, hair long and wind-tousled. He’s mostly lying sprawled out but has propped himself up on his elbows, hands splayed against the quilt, tendons and veins standing out against his skin. Nancy can’t seem to stop staring at his long fingers.

     

    “I— I didn’t expect to see you here,” she finally manages.

     

    “Ditto,” he answers, and smiles.

    Summary

    He had a questionable smelling sack of garbage slung over his shoulder, she had dark rings under her eyes from a lack of sleep, and he was really really into Nancy.

    “You’re not possessed, are you?” she asked, when he zoned out through her halfhearted good morning. Her brows were arched teasingly, and it was the first joke she’d really made with him in weeks.

    He jiggled the bag on his shoulder meaningfully, mustering some form of a grin. “Must be the fumes.”

    Summary

    Using the classic (and always hilarious) "we have to get out of these wet clothes and warm each other up" trope plus a communication breakdown, Nancy Drew and Ace realize their feelings for each other. After some stops and starts, they get down to business in a cave below the bluffs. As always, this is rated NC-17. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    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.”
