    Summary

    The old station wagon is parked at the curb, Ace leaning against her hood; it’s a mostly sunny Thursday afternoon with a few swirling flurries catching on his hair and shoulders, as white and glittering as his smile. He’s holding up a piece of cardboard with her last name scrawled on it in black sharpie.

    Nancy, laughing, drops her suitcase in the middle of the sidewalk and flings herself at him hard enough that he makes a tiny oof sound before folding her in his arms. He’s warm and smells like shampoo and Rebecca’s sugar cookies and she can’t seem to let go of his neck.

    “Welcome home, Nancy Drew,” he whispers into her ear.

    She just squeezes him tighter.

    ***

    When Nancy returns home for the holidays after her first semester at college, she and Ace venture down the road not taken.
