    Summary

    Lan Zhan isn’t a curious man when it comes to other people's business, but if this person is gonna scream and ruin his quiet moment alone, he wants to see who it is.

    He's almost turning back inside, tired of waiting, when the man in red raises his eyes and finds him.

    For a second, he is frozen in place. The man catches him red handed, meeting his gaze head-on, and Lan Zhan feels his ears blushing despite his frustration. The man looks confused, and then intrigued. Lan Zhan thinks he will have no problem remembering him tomorrow. He has very… distinguishing features.

    When the man’s face turns into a full grin, Lan Zhan turns around and goes back inside.

    -

    Lan Zhan meets an infuriating florist while he's working as the cook in a wedding. Wei Ying is loud, annoying and childish, and Lan Zhan can't wait for the time when this wedding is done so he never has to see him again. Surely, the world isn't so small that they would meet a second time.
    Right?

    Summary

    You and Mikasa drove to the hospital in silence; it was still too early for either of you to want to speak much, which was a trait of Mikasa’s you were thankful for.

    “Just a reminder that my cousin is gonna crash with us for the next couple of nights while he finds an apartment, is that still okay with you?” Mikasa asked.

    Right, Mikasa’s cousin (Levi, was it?) is moving here from London to start a new job at the University down the street as a college professor. Apparently, they offered him an enormous salary and great benefits, although you still don’t understand why anyone would move from London to come here. Maybe he wanted to be in close proximity to his only family member.

    Summary

    Anakin was your neighbour. The weird kind of neighbour your age that many people had, the one you quietly saw growing up along you and never exchanged words with besides 'Hello' and 'Bye' when you passed each other on the way to and from school.

    Maybe you would have never talked at all now that you’d graduated, if it wasn’t for that car.

    You always saw Anakin sitting in his car in the evening. Eyes staring out through the dirty glass of his windshield and out on to the road as if he was waiting for something or someone to arrive. Maybe even for permission- You didn't know. You just saw him sitting there too many times to count, smoking and crying and always staring out at that road.

    It was prickling under your skin, bothering you more and more with every weekend you observed him in the same place. Never changing anything, always slamming that car door shut again to walk back to his house, never driving off.

    You weren’t friends, you’d never even had a decent conversation and yet you wanted, needed, him to break out of this monotony.

    So you give him a push.

    And, well, that just won't do.
