    Summary

    He forces himself forward. The puddle of his complicated feelings was not a good enough reason not to be here.

    “Ace!” Nancy's eyebrows thread together in confusion.

    “Good morning, Nancy. How are you?” He keeps his tone even and calm, though inside he feels anything but.

    He feels nervous. Which is bizarre, because it’s Nancy. He’s never been nervous around her before. Never harboured secret feelings for her before, either.

    “Uh… I’m fine, Ace, thanks so much for asking… but what are you doing here? At my house…. At 7 in the morning...” she says, perplexed. Neither of them really stepped backwards after they collided, so they’re still standing very close together. Though, he’s observed that vast distances between them are not often commonplace anyway.

    “Where’re you off to at 7 in the morning, Nancy?” he returns, twitching an eyebrow at her expectantly.

    She gives him a deadpan look, because he knows. And he knows that she knows that’s exactly why he’s here.

    “I am going to an auction to look for artefacts that belonged to the Women in White,” she sighs, teeth almost gritted in defeat.

    He pauses and nods for a beat. “Me too. Let's go.”

    Summary

    Nancy raises her eyebrow, turning her body towards him more fully. She flips her hair behind her shoulder and circles the rim of her glass with her finger, dragging her gaze over his body—quick enough so he notices, but not slow enough to seem creepy. She smirks. “They still kept you on after that? You must be pretty good at your job.”

    He smiles, eyes sparkling as he gives her a similar once over, and heat bubbles in Nancy’s veins at the clear interest in his eyes. “Oh, I’m very good at it. One of my many talents.”

    "Sure."

    “You don’t sound like you believe me.”

    Nancy scoffs. “I’m just keeping an open mind. Don’t want to get my hopes up.”

    He smirks. “Any way I can persuade you to change your mind?”

    Summary

    Nace week day two - First date goes wrong (but ends incredibly right).

    --

    “Come quickly, Nancy Drew! You’re the only one who can save us now.”

    She turns to grab her coat from the back of her chair and uses the opportunity to let out a smirk at the absurdity of his words, coupled with the monotony of his tone. “And which hospital is that?”

    “Oh, I’m in the hospital? Aren’t I clumsy. You think that’s enough or do you want me to ramble on for another 30 to 60 seconds.”

    “Got it, I will see you soon.”

    “You’re welcome.”

    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.”
