    Summary

    Abby draws an intake of breath, then pauses for a moment. Riley's breathing stops. "What was the third rule?" Abby finally says, looking at her with big eyes. It might have been the first sentence Riley's heard from her without a stutter all day.

    Riley blinks. "The third rule of what?" She knows the answer, of course, but it's a little too obvious to admit that.

    "Your breakup advice."

    "Oh." Riley swallows deeply. Oh, yeah. This is happening. She can only see the honest answer going one way, but she's too tipsy to think of a convincing lie on the spot. "Get over them by getting under someone else."

    In which we discover: why Riley's last name is "Johnson", how Abby really feels about mixed drinks, and how completely oblivious two thirty-year-old lesbians can be about their feelings.

    (Ch. 8 is E, but the rest is T/soft M).

    Summary

    Riley briefly clocks how Abby slides to face her, the roughness of the wood under their legs, and then she’s lost in AbbyAbbyAbby, the gently spiced smell of her hair, the firm pressure of her fingers as she grasps at Riley’s waist, the hunger threading between them. It feels a little like a release and a little like a promise, tuned to the orchestration of their breath. Riley is so glad she’s here.

    Summary

    Abby doesn’t meant to, but she holds onto each one, slides it into a previously undiscovered part of her brain that also keeps track of things like Riley’s voice makes Abby’s stomach flutter and Abby can’t think about the soft weight of Riley’s hair for more than three seconds or she’ll start thinking about Riley’s lips and that’s NOT something we can deal with right now.

    Summary

    Riley is like, exactly the kind of girl Abby would have been afraid to talk to in college - whip smart, unexpectedly funny, and just a little weird. She’s also warm, surprisingly honest and Abby can feel herself getting pulled in.

    Summary

    If you’d asked Abby in January whether she thought she would ever be at the Caldwell family Christmas again, she would have laughed until she passed out. Nonetheless, for the second year in a row, that’s where she finds herself arriving on Christmas Eve to spend another holiday break, albeit under very different circumstances.

    Or: Abby goes home with Harper for Christmas again, but this time as a friend. Knowing that Riley will also be there is just a...perk.
