Untitled, or Golden Rings

Work Text:

A ring is no guarantee, that Idgie knows for sure. When folks stand up together in church they always say "love" and "honor" and sometimes they even mean it, but when Frank Bennett said those words the only one he meant was "obey", and he just meant it in one direction.

Idgie means all of them though, and a few others besides, like cherish and protect. It is only right that Ruth comes back to her, and when Papa Threadgoode buys the café as a means for Idgie to support Ruth and the baby it's the only blessing they need.
