    Summary

    He cradled her in his arms. "Sleep, sweetheart," he whispered. She gave him a little smile and traced his unshaven jaw with her rough fingertips. "You've never called me sweetheart before," she replied with a sigh. He gave a funny chuckle, his lips twisting up into a smile. "This old ship holds too many ghosts, I guess," he said.

    Just a bunch of Reylo drabbles!

    Summary

    High school senior Rey Johnson has lived next door to Ben Solo her whole life. The two could not be more different and at school, Rey wouldn't be caught dead in his presence. That doesn't stop her from sneaking out to their treehouse every night. Despite her unwillingness to be friends with Ben in the light of day, he has always been there with her in the darkness.

    Summary

    “The show,” he says. “It’s probably best if they don’t—if we don’t—”

    And Rey follows his line of thought at once. For all the program is one that doesn’t seem melodramatic—the height of drama in previous seasons came from someone’s cake falling over and that was about it—she does not doubt that the producers and cameramen would leap at the opportunity to make there be something out of nothing in their relationship—especially if there was something out of something.

    “Yeah,” she agrees. “Yeah, probably. We can pick baking stations that are…” but she doesn’t want to complete the thought. She likes baking next to Ben.

    “Or we can just be careful?” he suggests, sounding quite as pained by the prospect as Rey feels.

    “Yeah, careful. I can do careful,” Rey says at once and her lips are on his again and he’s laughing now, and she’s laughing, and she didn’t think laughter would be part of all this. She didn’t think it could be. But here she is, laughing and kissing and holding a man who, at some point, she’s going to want to beat.

    She does her best not to think of that now.

    It’s a friendly competition, after all.

    It’s not life and death.

    It’s baking.

    Summary

    There is something about watching Rey put her mind to task. Ben can't put a name to this something, exactly— all he knows is that it fascinates him like nothing else has in a long, long time.

    "Dr. Solo?" She glances over at him. "What do you think?"

    I think I'm doomed, he wants to say but doesn't. I think the curse of the pharaohs has nothing on you. I think you are my Egypt.

    Summary

    “It happened like this,” his mother inevitably began, her face that odd mix of unease and annoyance after decades of telling the story over and over again. The next sentence always seemed to shift. “My parents bought a house, and it all went to hell.” 

    Or:

    “It happened like this: my father had a brain tumor, and he went after my mother with a knife.”

    Or, with a drink in her hand and several others under her belt:

    “It happened like this: hospitality really will fuck you over.”

    Or, on her deathbed:

    “It happened like this.” Her face thin, her expression earnest. “The original owner cursed the house.” Her hand had folded around Ben’s own, squeezing with unexpected force. “Don’t go back, darling boy.”

    In which Ben Solo returns to Mustafar, North Carolina, to tear the past to the ground.
