2 Works in April Stevens & Debbie Wesley
Fandoms: Teenage Bounty Hunters (TV)
13 Jul 2021
Mrs. Wesley smiles at her daughter and then April just watches as they start singing the song together, Sterling clumsily moving along to the music until Mrs. Wesley’s hands guide her, twirling Sterling as the late afternoon sun lights up both of their blonde hair.
April doesn't quite know how to name what that sight does to her. Her friend - her best friend - so happy at home, like she was built to dance in this kitchen with her mother, makes her heart do that thing it always does around Sterling, feel these new ways to be content. But then, something darker slides in her ribs, this knowledge that she could never do this with her own mother, that same ease would never live in the walls of her home.
Or, five times April watches Sterling dance, then joins her.

“I have my backpack and my homework and all of my fingers and toes, Mrs. Wesley, I promise.” April says, somehow with both the bravado of a child and effortless politeness of an adult.
Debbie can’t help but let out a laugh, somehow extremely charmed by this nine-year-old.
“Well alright then, Miss April, looks like you’re coming home with us.”
Or, Debbie Wesley inviting April Stevens into her home time and time again.
