    Summary

    Emily has been living in Boston over the past four years finishing up college and starting her career at the Boston Globe HQ writing and editing for the paper. Sue has been in NY, but the girls have lost contact over the years and haven't spoken for quite some time. They were best friends, and sometimes a little more, growing up and Emily always had Sue lingering in the back of her mind. She wondered where she was... what she's been up to... how she has been? Will their paths cross again? When they do--what will happen?

    Summary

    Emily and Sue are very close friends and they had been for years. Emily gets Sue a job at her workplace, and the girls already strong bond of a relationship begins to take a whole other direction than it ever has before. Sue has been with her boyfriend, James, for a few years now and recently got engaged. As the girls relationship begins to evolve, Emily finds herself gravitating toward Sue--getting jealous of James and thinking about Sue in ways she never really did before.

    Summary

    Emily sat on the hospital bed, arm in a cast and huffing in frustration at her own carelessness. Much to her delight, a brunette nurse walked through the curtains with a clipboard in hand.

    Summary

    How are you?

     

     

    The ding pulled both sisters out of their stupor, lethargic from the humidity despite being in a covered area, and the several mixed drinks ordered. They both looked down at the same time to the table between them, each hoping it was for them.

     

    They froze when they saw the name on the screen.

     

    Emily immediately sat up and rested her sunglasses on top of her head, unconvinced that she had read it properly. She could feel Vinnie’s eyes on her, silently anticipating her next reaction. She could feel her face grow hotter, an odd cocktail of shame, embarrassing hopefulness and dread.

     

    She sucked in a breath, fingers tingling, but not daring to reach for her phone just yet.

     

    Before she knew it (and no less than offended by it), she was blinking back tears.

    Emily and Sue were best friends and now they're not

    Summary

    The rain poured down on the streets of London. The roads transforming into rivers as it fell. It was a rare occasion to leave the flat without an umbrella and an even rarer occasion to leave without a rain jacket. As luck would have it, she had left without both. It always poured here, or at least it had since she got here. Five years and she felt like it hadn’t stopped.

    Summary

    Feelings were hard for Sue. Anyone who knew the two of them may have assumed that Emily was the least in touch with her feelings, her quirky exterior portraying a hard, disillusioned soul, but really, Sue didn’t know how to handle anything that wasn’t grief. Her whole life had been marred by its presence, in a way, numbing her ability to recognize her emotions and her feelings.

    Sue attempts to understand her feelings.

    Summary

    Austin wishes he could say he knew. Now, looking at it with the clear eyes of hindsight, it was obvious. Blatant even. But Austin hadn’t wanted to see it. He knows he’d let himself be blinded from the obvious.

    or

    Austin Dickinson hasn't always known about Sue and Emily.

    Summary

    Sue tried not to think about the implications of her feelings. She tried not to think about what it meant that she thought about Mary always, she tried not to think about how much she hated not being around her. She knows it’s wrong, she knows whatever feeling this is is immoral, against every belief she’s had instilled in her since she was small. But part of her can’t seem to stop, no matter how much she wants to. Her mind was infected, Mary’s consciousness worming its way through hers until they were completely intertwined, and Sue was unable to separate herself from Mary. She hates it, she hates herself, but part of her doesn’t want to let it go, not when it feels like this.

    or

    Sue Gilbert Dickinson struggles with her feelings, until Emily.

    Summary

    'And then, just as you reach the breakfast table, that’s when you see her.
    Brown silky hair gathered in a messy bun, delicate and gracious face, warm brown eyes. There’s a pang of feeling in your chest that you can’t name.
    These eyes are currently meeting yours, and you're kind of regretting coming down in your teddy bear pajamas top and shorts.
    And suddenly your kitchen, the kitchen of your childhood, seems to fade away. It’s a blur of shapes and drapes, weird paintings, Victorian dresses, and toppers hanged in an entrance that is not yours… and still those eyes are here, locked into yours…’

    When Emily meets Susan, her brother's new crush, she starts having flashes of the past life they shared in the 19th century. Will Sue and Emily be able to find each other again in this day and age?

    Summary

    Four hours down, four to go. Sue sighs almost silently as she stares at the second hand on the clock. Her eyes blur and she sees it double back on itself and skip beats, taunting her, slowing time down. She swears the clock gets slower every shift.

    Sue makes a mistake at work and ends up making a new friend…

    Summary

    Sue doesn’t want to be here. She wants to be at home on the sofa, curled up with Pancake, watching mindless tv while he purrs into her elbow. That’s how she’d rather spend most of her evenings at the moment, if she’s being honest.

    Summary

    Emily wanted to facepalm, realising she not only had given a gorgeous girl a very embarrassing shirt with herself at 3 years old on it, she had given it to one of Hollywood’s most requested actresses.

    Summary

    As it turns out Sue Gilbert, even though she has known Emily Dickinson for a long time, does not know her, you know?
    Really it's not like anyone does, her family is against her, she only has one known friend, and the whole town always seems to have her name on it's lips - and not always in a good way.
    Here is what Sue Gilbert knows - Emily Dickinson is a genius, she can run circles around everyone she meets, she's the town delinquent, social pariah and she seems to be Sue's very own knight in black leather jacket.
    Sue learns that Emily has been the one taking care of her - protecting her - and so she experiences a midlife crisis!
    Cause what else is a girl gonna do, if not get jealous and score a home run with the girl she might have been crushing on the whole time!
    Who would have thunk it? Certainly not Emily, but boy, does she rise to the challenge!

    Summary

    Sue had a very special job, if you could call it a job. She helped out people with broken hearts. That sounds all very vague but her job was simple. If you need to attend some sort of event where your ex will be too, you can hire her to make him/her jealous. And with the wedding being in Hawaii, she just couldn't be there for a week alone, the same place where George would be too.
