    Summary

    It had been exactly eight days since he’d talked to Ted Lasso in Richmond’s car park. He’d barely had enough time to put out some feelers about his career options and to come to terms with his new unemployed status when he received a text from Coach Lasso saying ‘Hey, can we talk? Drinks on me.’

    So here he was.
    _______

    Ted and Trent talk about the article's fallout and where that leaves them now.

    Summary

    Nate winces as the paper thuds to the desk in front of him. He is suddenly aware of the looming presence of Roy Kent behind him, growling quietly.
    “You did this.” It’s not a question
    - - - - -

    The last thing Ted is expecting, as he stares into his glass trying not to throw himself a pity party is to see another pint join his on the table top and hear Trent Crimm, The Independent, ask “May I join you Coach Lasso?”

    Summary

    “Ted,” he says, mouth dry.

    “Trent,” says Ted.

    “Is this a date?” says Trent stupidly.

    “Trent Crimm, bringing that heat.” Ted still hasn’t withdrawn his hand.

    They’re standing in the street outside Ted’s flat where any tosser in Richmond could gawk at them. Trent hasn’t blanked so hard since his first press conference at Man United, where Alex Ferguson insulted his hair. His mouth, trained by years of journalistic habit, says on autopilot: “Follow-up question.”

     

    In 48 hours, Trent Crimm lands a scoop, implodes his career and makes some drastic life decisions. And then there's the aftermath. And Ted, of course.

    Summary

    Trent’s first emotion was disappointment in himself for not finding the story first.
    “Ted Lasso took British Football Job Because of NCAA Investigation.”
    His second emotion was guilt for thinking that, and the third was… something close to fear that the article might be true.
    The article itself was light on details. ‘Impermissible benefits’. Unnamed source, of course. Nothing he could find in public record.
    His searching led him to a youtube video, posted ten minutes before.

    Summary

    Ted's dreams are starting to take over his life. After a series of sexy dreams, Ted realizes he's attracted to a certain fella and needs to make some moves!

    “Jesus Ted,” Trent gasped, “You can’t just say something like that. You’ll make me think I was right and you do fancy a shag.”

    (sound familiar to my story, Dreamin' ? - yea, I know, but this is a different story)

    Summary

    Most of his days are like this, in the weeks since the end of the season, since he’d imploded everything; he’s nearly at the point of losing track of the days, everything slowed, three major tasks a day to accomplish around time spent the way a five year old dictates. Trent’s had a near 300% increase in tea parties in the last month of his life, but then Evie declares that she’s poisoned the tea, and Trent has to gag and slump over on the floor, and he wouldn’t turn down an Evie Crimm tea party if the Queen invited him for her own.

    But he’s definitely going to make sure he limits the amount of news about the mysterious deaths of Russian journalists that she’s exposed to, next time one comes up. Her plots have become very elaborate.

    He has an optometrist’s appointment and brings Evie to help pick out his new glasses; takes her to a speech therapist who reassures Trent that it’s very common for five year olds to do one year of speech therapy and then never need it again; they go to museum after museum and take guided tours that they sneak off from conspiratorially; mostly, Trent spends time with his daughter, and doesn’t think about football at all, but does think about Ted Lasso a lot.

    Summary

    Summary

    Coach Beard was instantly out of his chair but Rebecca paid no mind to him and his words. His voice fell deaf to her ears as Rebecca watched Trent Crimm kneel carefully in front of a bruised and blooded Ted. 

    She stumbled backwards, almost like she'd been punched in the gut. Ted's right arm was clad, from wrist to elbow, in a pale pink cast. The colour was almost identical to the box that housed her everyday biscuits.

    Summary

    Trent’s been told loads that he’s shit at love, and he’s got the nights alone to show for it, but this is the first time since his fucking twenties that he’s been bothered by it. He is bothered, though, regrettably and resoundingly; he thinks—goddamn it, he can admit it, if only to himself—he thinks Ted deserves nice things, good things, and though Trent’s given him arguably the nicest thing he had, it’s paltry compared to the harm he’s caused.

    ***

    Ted and Trent, in limbo.

    Summary

    Trent still thinks he’s too old for this, but he is, as his best friend never ceases to remind him, a writer, which to her apparently should make him “a natural” at talking to strange men online without even getting any shirtless photos out of it. Great.

    Summary

    “Did you do the right thing? Are you at peace with what you did?”

    It wasn’t that simple but all of the sudden, Trent can’t explain why. Truthfully, the questions themselves had two different answers. Did he do the right thing? No, of course not. He had a long history of journalistic moral integrity that he had just spit on, a history of protecting the bravery and courage exhibited by anyone who would risk their own safety and well-being to share the truth. But Nate Shelley didn’t deserve the consideration of being brave, or courageous, with what he had done to Ted Lasso. It was an act borne of some deeper hurt that Trent couldn’t immediately understand, but what they had both not said was why Trent had done what he’d done: this would hurt Ted.

    Summary

    Ted takes a moment to settle behind the desk, adjusting the microphones with an unnecessary touch, putting his water to the side, turning a page in the notebook in front of him. Every movement is intentional and careful and so choreographed it’s near painful to watch.

    Trent knows this is his fault, in many ways.

    “There’s a story running tomorrow. Can we talk? In private?” 

    It's not what Ted expects. Neither is the rest of the evening.

    Summary

    What’s really a problem is this: Ted Lasso has never lied to Trent before.

    He’s been evasive and circuitous. He’s been silly and distracting. He’s been tangential and vague. But he has never outright lied—a rare thing, a precious thing. Something Trent has begun to look forward to, to desire as something unique in the sordid little corner of the world he’s chosen to ply his pen.

    So standing in the Crown & Anchor and realizing that Ted Lasso is lying is—new, and terrible, and strangely devastating in a personally subjective way he will not examine at this moment.

    (Trent Crimm examines the lie and eventually gets the truth.)
