    Summary

    And she could feel it. That familiar tug of her heartstrings, that leaping in her chest, the flutter in her abdomen.

    When Carol turned and caught her staring, she looked away, but not quick enough to avoid the blush that overtook her cheeks.

    Summary

    Don't wanna be the bottle that keeps a ship from sea
    Don't wanna be a cage that keeps a bird from being free
    Don't wanna keep a singer from a melody
    Yeah, baby, that was you and me

    I wish I was heartless and kept you as mine
    I wish it were my hands that held you at night
    But all of the love that you wanted for us
    You found it in someone new
    So I'm not happy, but I'm happy for you

    - Jasmine Thompson

    Summary

    She asked once, how Abby met women.

    A smile curled across Abby’s face. “There are places… in the city. Beyond that, sometimes there’s just a way of looking at someone. The way they look back at you. A gaze that lingers a little too long.”

    Carol knew what Abby was alluding to. She’d experienced it countless times herself, with Abby, with other women. Sometimes unreciprocated, Carol left staring on her own, other times there was eye contact that lasted beyond simple acknowledgement. Carol had always chalked it up to pure admiration, though. And she’d never been compelled enough to act further, as much as she would’ve liked to. No, she wasn’t one to take chances, only pursuing sure bets.

    Until one day, she went to the store. Goddamn Frankenberg’s.

    Summary

    Carol Aird was certainly Therese’s friend. They’d met when Therese first started working at the advertising agency about a year prior. Carol worked in analytics, while Therese worked in creative. Their teams would meet up a couple of times a month, at most, but the first time the meeting happened, Therese and Carol sort of…hit it off. Therese couldn’t really explain it, but they’d just clicked, and that same night, Carol invited Therese (and, nicely, Dannie) out for drinks with her friends. Therese had barely noticed anyone else was at the bar besides Carol.

    Their timing, though, was never right.

    Summary

    What other moments from the movie timeline did we miss? I always wanted to fill in some of the blanks to get a fuller picture of how they developed their relationship. I'm also going to be filling in more of Carol's life before and after the movie to go along with world that I've created in this series (for anyone that's read the other two stories).

    Summary

    Carol wasn’t mad at Jack for bailing on driving from Los Angeles to Buffalo with her two weeks before they were set to depart. Jack had gone above and beyond, not wanting Carol to cancel the plans she’d made for their trip, somehow procuring a replacement for himself within five days.

    Sort of.

    If she was normal enough, Carol would happily drag this Therese person across the United States with her. The backup was flying, and shipping her car, but Carol needed this. Time away from everybody, away from people she knew. Plus, aside from living in Chicago and weekend excursions to Las Vegas, she hadn’t visited any of the United Flyover States of America. Why not do that while she had the time? Discover just how little she was missing.

    Summary

    Therese let out a very tired sigh and attempted to come up with an excuse to not go when she was interrupted by the most enchanting voice she had ever heard.

    "Gone with the Wind? I wasn't expecting seeing someone as young as you watching something like that."

    Therese looked up from her phone to an unbelievably beautiful, practically perfect, tall, blonde woman. Her hair was up in a bun, she was wearing running shorts, a loose t-shirt that showed her perfectly sculpted collar bones, and.... were those tights?

    "I didn't mean that to sound rude. I just didn't expect that to be your movie choice."

    Therese realized she hadn't said anything yet to the vision that was standing in front of her.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Oh…my god.” Therese swallowed hard. She knew she was blushing like crazy, and the collective, sing-songy, “oooooh,” coming from her class of nosey ninth graders was not helping the case. They ogled and whispered as Therese scanned the bouquet of flowers, searching for a card despite not needing a clue as to their sender.

    Ruby said something like: “they must have cost a fortune,” but Therese was barely listening, having found and opened the card— small and wordless, with just a red heart against a white background on the front— and inside read: Love you. —Carol.

    Summary

    I listed Carol (2015) in the fandoms, but this story is strictly a TPOS sequel. I know there are scores of them, but I have only read a couple. So, forgive me if I touch on similarities; it's inevitable.

    Like Highsmith did in The Price of Salt, this story is in third person limited. Of my ten previous Carol AUs, only one has been written from that point of view, Spitfire Dawn. It's time for another challenge.

    Novella length.
