    Summary

    Sometimes Addy hears a wistful note in Colette’s soft sighs and notices chips in her nail polish as she twirls the wineglass in her fingers.

    It is these moments when Addy wonders what game it was Colette had been playing, and how she lost badly enough to have nothing but Addy left over. Addy’s love as her only consolation prize.

    She will never ask. Colette would never tell her even if she did.

    Summary

    Tacy makes a crude gesture with her hands, her forefinger and thumb forming a hole that separates as she slips her fist through.

    “It hurts,” she mimics, raising her voice to a nasally whine.

    “Tacy, I will end you,” Addy growls lowly, aware of the other girls hovering, fixing their shoes or hair, wrapping their knees and wrists with athletic tape. Her panic is a snowstorm inside of her, but she can’t lose her composure here.

    Summary

    “Long time no see, Hanlon.” Beth looks her up and down, feeling her polite smile turn into a real one as she winks. “Looking good.”

    “Thanks, you too.” Addy blinks, lips twitching with a smile that doesn’t meet her eyes as she says, “but it’s French now.”

    “…huh?” Beth narrows her eyes.

    “You called me 'Hanlon.'” Addy almost shyly lifts up her hand and wiggles her fingers, revealing yet another silver ring. “It’s French now.”

    Summary

    They barrel through the stoplight at NASCAR speeds, into the sea of shiny chrome cars zooming back and forth like beetles on crack. A battered military jeep smashes into them. There’s a concert of squealing tires and steel crunching like cola cans. Addy flies right through the windshield and Beth screams and screams, her lungs have no limit, she won’t— can’t stop screaming—

    With a jolt, Beth wakes, gasping for air.

    No one is screaming.

    It’s just the alarm on her phone, blaring its racket to tell her it’s time to rise n’ shine.

    Summary

    “Oh, Beth.” Addy heaves a sigh and kicks the champagne back like a shot. 

    “You want to talk about it?” Coach asks softly. 

    “If we’re going to talk about Beth, I need more of this.” Addy wiggles the glass in her hand. 

    Coach huffs a laugh and obligingly takes the bottle, her hand slipping from Addy’s thigh. Addy almost wishes she hadn’t asked, because she already misses its weight.

    Summary

    “How are you doing?” Addy asks when it’s just the two of them.

    “How am I supposed to answer that?” Beth asks dully.

    “With the truth,” Addy murmurs, pulling Beth a bit closer to her.

    “When do you ever want the truth, Addy?” Beth sighs, sounding more weary than angry.

    “We’re in deep now, Beth,” Addy whispers, heart twisting in her chest. “Real life ride-or-die. There’s a dead guy in the trunk and we’re about to dump his body in a crack house. I’ll handle it even if I don’t want to hear it. We can’t afford to play games anymore.”

    Summary

    All it simply takes for Beth to see through the things Addy says is to carefully look inside Addy's eyes. That's where Beth finds that she wasn't the only one repressing her feelings.

    That maybe it wasn't all one sided after all this time.

    Summary

    Beth bought a tropical fish lamp and hung it on her wall. She’d used it at first, this humming moving picture that created the illusion of the brightly colored fish swimming inside the perfect blue. It looked like an aquarium. Looked too much like an aquarium, like Will’s aquarium. Addy couldn’t sleep in any room that had anything that reminded her of Will, so Beth had thrown a towel over it and plugged in an old unicorn nightlight instead.

    But it looks like neither the nightlight nor Addy’s arms could keep away the nightmares tonight.

    Summary

    Ben Trammel lumbers up in all his graceless linebacker glory and intrudes. “Are you together? Like a couple?”

    Addy pointedly takes Beth’s hand. Beth intertwines their fingers and defiantly raises her chin.

    “We sure are,” she declares, shooting Addy a fond look before she turns her attention back to Ben. “What about it?”

    “Wow.” He shakes his head, pimply lip quirking as he ogles down the neckline of Beth’s shirt. “Well, Cassidy, when you get sick of silicone and you’re ready to go back to the real thing, hit me up.”

    He shuffles backward as Addy’s jaw tightens, grabbing on his junk.

    Summary

    Beth sees it, then: the way she treats them like adults, like their ideas matter. Like she's interested in their lives, the ones that are the blank stretches of nothingness locked away under bobby pins and Eagles jackets and thick gold-glitter eyeshadow, the ones that don't have meaning outside of cheer and aren't going to just because Colette French asks a question or two.
