    Summary

    “May I?” he whispered.

    “You…” could he? She wasn’t sure. On paper, this seemed like a terrible idea. One did not sit on the lap of a stranger on a subway train. But she was so cold. And he had a blanket. And his arms alone were…large enough to add warmth of their own, she thought. She was too cold for her body to spare the blood needed for her to blush, and for a fleeting moment she was thankful for the cold.

    She nodded, at last. He closed the gap between his hands and her waist and pulled her into him, seating her on his lap and tucking her into his right arm while he adjusted the blanket over them both. He let his left arm fall to his side and she perched herself on him with as much dignity as she could retain. Her back was straight and she stared straight ahead.

    “Thank you,” she said. It seemed like the right thing to say, given the circumstances.

    Summary

    This is a retelling of the Love Hypothesis from Adam Carlsen's point of view. The story is still in its infancy, but eventually it will include missing scenes developing Adam's friendships with both Holden Rodrigues and Tom Benton, as well as all the original scenes between Adam and Olive. For every instance that Olive sees a flash of something...emotion, hidden thought, etc, flit across Adam's face, this story will attempt to fill in the blanks.

    Summary

    “Anyway,” Olive said, trying to hold in a laugh. “Holden says that if you need toilet paper, or you think you’ll need toilet paper in the next two weeks, that you should hit the store soon. He said people are already panic buying like it’s the first ten minutes of a zombie apocalypse movie.”

    She held her phone up to Adam, who studied the text from his best friend and accompanying photo of empty shelves where toilet paper usually would be. His brow furrowed, like he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

    “Apocalyptic indeed. We’ll go tonight. If the end times are here, I expect you’ll want to load up on snacks.”

     

    Ever wonder what Adam and Olive would be up to during the pandemic? Me too. Wonder no more.

    (Note: I don't own these characters - they're from The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood).

    Summary

    “What were you thinking… the first time I kissed you?”

    “You mean when you assaulted me?”

    Olive pinched his stomach and he yelped. “Once again, I did ask for consent.”

    He laughed. “And once again, a snort is not a suitable substitute for the word ‘yes.’ I’m still working on my Title IX complaint…”

    “Are you now?” She went to pinch him again but he grabbed her hand and kissed it.

    “Mmhmm,” Adam murmured against her palm, “it has a table of contents.” He kissed her wrist, his lips moving slowly up her arm. “Physical assault,” kiss, “verbal abuse,” kiss, “excessive personal contact,” kiss, “substance abuse—”

    “Whoa. Substance abuse?”

    He nodded solemnly. “Sub-Section: Pumpkin Spice.”

     

    Picking up right where Chapter 22 left off, we find out what happened after Olive finally tells Adam she loves him.

    Summary

    “Fine. There’s...someone.” Adam confessed. The corner of his mouth quirked upward involuntarily in a smile. Traitor.

    “Okay, I’m clearing my schedule for the rest of the afternoon. Tell me everything. Where did you meet her?”

    “My bathroom.”

    "That is..." Holden marveled. "After 20 years, you'd think I'd have a handle on your sense of humor, but you still manage to surprise me."

    "I'm serious. Last fall, I found this—" Amazingly beautiful and refreshingly direct girl."—interloper crying in my lab bathroom. We talked. I thought she was cool."
