    Summary

    “I did hire a mechanic. That’s the thing.” He drops his hands to his side and her smile grows a little, wobbling despite itself as she reaches up to smooth down the hair he’d left standing on end.

    “I hired a mechanic, a brilliant mechanic. Spectacular, a little stubborn, the best mechanic Nebraska’s ever seen. Can fix anything, even if we’ve all given up and gone home, even if it’s a rusted pile of junk, even if it’s a,” he draws in a quick breath, “carmudgeony old heart.”

    Summary

    Will sets the spatula down and turns to look at her, at the three of them, no longer laughing but all three smiling, and sighs before throwing his hands up. “We’re going to need a bigger coffee maker if I’m going to have to deal with the three of you every morning.”

    Summary

    The morning comes late, later than it should, but she’s here, in Will’s bed, Will’s gloriously large bed, sprawled out with messy hair and a quiet grin. It had been a hard week, a long week but she’s here now like he wanted her to be, like she wanted to be.

    Summary

    She’s a royal pain in the ass. She’s not literal royalty as far as he knows; she hasn’t thrown that in his face yet, so it’s hard to tell, but she is wealthy, obscenely so and that’s close enough for him.

    Summary

    They’d spent so many mornings like this making up for lost time, and now all they had was time. It’s an irony not lost on him.

    Summary

    There are rules, things he’s explained to her dozens of times, but she can’t find the one that matches the commentary spewing from the TV. She doesn’t care about those rules, she can’t say she ever has, she only cares about the ones that end with them both naked and sated.

    “You’re not running away because you mess up, you’re running away so you don’t mess up?” He says it like it doesn’t make any sense, like he’s really trying to figure this out.

    Summary

    “Remember the disaster?”

    “The disaster.” She pops another cube into her mouth. “The time you asked Maggie—”

    “Yeah. Yeah, I asked you and you said…”

    “Oh,” Watermelon drips down her chin and she wipes it off with the back of her hand. “Did you buy a ring?”

    Summary

    "I would appreciate it if you would show me the same respect you afford everyone else.”

    “I am.” He assures her, but the glare remains. “Will McAvoy.” He holds out his hand. “I apologize if I’ve offended you ma’am. I only meant to have a bit of fun.”

    She still looks perturbed, but the good old boy routine seems to have smoothed things over sufficiently as she reaches to clasp his hand. Her grip is firm, not the watery half-attempt he’s encountered from the few women bold enough to return the gesture. “MacKenzie McHale. Do you really go by Will? Charlie did mention your name of course, but meeting you now it doesn’t seem quite right. I hope you don’t mind Billy. It’s much more suitable don’t you think?”

    Summary

    “I think Jim thinks I used to cry,” there’s amusement in her voice edged with a note of triumph that he recognizes as distinctly dangerous. “I got good at being quiet.”

    “Oh,” he breathes out when her voice drops off silky smooth, with a smirk he knows is there because even if he hasn’t heard it in years, he’s heard that tone of voice before in the inky black of his bedroom, in the back of a cab on the way to her place after dinner, in the stairwell behind the studio at CNN.

    Summary

    The storm had woke her, the rolling thunder an uncomfortable reminder of the constant drumming of artillery fire. The ping of the rain on the windows, when it came, was an equally sharp and unsettling sound.
