    Summary

    Adam Parrish stood on the front porch, fully wet from head to toe. His dusty hair soaked and sticking to his forehead, a few strands of it poking his eyes. Ronan tucked the loose strands away from Adam's eyes and Adam stared at him, before Ronan realized what he was doing and pulled away.

    Summary

    It became methodical, most of the cars had the same problem, the same parts missing or in need of replacing and he almost didn’t hear the car arrive until the door was slammed shut. He jumped, head almost hitting the hood to see an Aglionby boy – very obvious – walking around to the passenger side of a shark-like BMW. He looked angry and sharp, surprisingly matching his car, buzzcut hair, in black jeans, black combat boots and a black jumper with Aglionby splattered across the front. Joe went to shout that they were closed when he turned to grab something off the seat of his car and Joe saw that PARRISH was across the back of his jumper in large block letters and that what he had grabbed looked a lot like a Chinese takeaway.

    Joe glanced over at Boyd who just nodded at the boy as he walked into the garage The boy nodded back, still not smiling.

    “Parrish,” He announced but Adam didn’t slide out from the car.

    “Lynch.” The boy – Lynch – sat on the edge of the desk next to the car Adam was working on, popping his food open, legs crossed. “I haven’t got the cash for a Chinese.”

    “Who the fuck said it was for you?”

    Summary

    Adam Parrish sat by The Gray Man because he volunteered to run the program on the occasion the Gray Man would have to go away on business out of town. His accent was slight but still obviously Virginian, drawing out the words with a soft, honeyed drawl.

    The first time Mr Gray had called on Ronan to speak, Ronan had gone bright red and scoffed. He’d stayed completely silent, only glaring and baring his teeth at anyone who looked at him, barely holding himself back from walking out. Adam had seemed to take one look at him and decide 'nope, not worth my time.'

    Summary

    Adam Parrish has worked at The Night Owl since the end of his college freshman year. It's named so because it's open late, which suits Adam just fine because no one ever comes in during those last hours before 12am.

    Except, then someone does.

    A foul mouthed, viciously handsome someone, who brings a slow rolling storm of change into Adam's steady life. And when he does, Adam won't be able to lie anymore.

    Summary

    He bit the bullet. “I guess it’s… Ronan.”

    Blue said, “What’d he do now?”

    Adam laughed for real this time. “Nothing. I mean. Not yet.”

    Blue followed the movement of his hand and cocked her head, trying to read the spread of cards upside down. She spent a moment studying them. He held his breath, knowing what she would see there. Blue might not be psychic, but she’d grown up with this stuff—she probably knew the theory behind it better than he did. He felt strangely flayed open, knowing what she was looking at. He almost wished he’d picked them up before she could see, but it wouldn’t matter once he told her, anyway. 

    Blue said, “You two have been spending an awful lot of time together.”

    Summary

    Ronan Lynch had been in dozens of fight fists, maybe closer to hundreds. The one time it matters, he didn't dodge in time. It drives Adam to the brink- he got out of that shitty place, out of the suffocating dust and the stifling tin walls and Robert Parrish's fist- so how did they get here?

    AKA Ronan and Adam are fighting and Adam throws his phone, causing Ronan to get hit in the face. He freaks out.

     

    ***** WARNING *****

    So it's been brought to my attention that some feel there's an undertone of abuser-apologist in this fic. Obviously, as someone who has gone through abuse, this is NOT AT ALL what I wanted. When I wrote this fic, I wrote it with the mindset that it's the same as when you're waving your arm around and accidentally bonk someone on the face. If it was Gansey/Blue in this fic it'd end with apologies and 'its okay' and lets move on and not fight anymore. It only spiralled the way it did because of Adam's self perception. I made a point in the second half of the fic to show how it went (objectively). I thought I'd done an okay job, but now I'm concerned for those reading. Physical injury with your partner is NOT normal. Indulge me this fic if it's safe for you, otherwise keep safe xx
