    Summary

    Rey waited for years for her husband, Captain Ben Solo, to return from his last journey to sea. For three years she waited until one evening, Hux shows up with an offer: marry me or lose all that you love. She scrambles to find a way to outsmart him and the First Order Bank, ruining the town with disastrous loans. Meanwhile a new person has moved into the small seaside village--Kylo Ren, a wealthy foreigner who seems bent on ruining the First Order Bank in general and Hux in particular.

    This is what "Patience" started as but was deleted for this new work.

    Summary

    Rey knows she's not normal. Why else would she be subjected to four foster families before she aged out of the system and took life into her own hands? It could have (definitely does) something to do with the fact that she can see how long people have to live.

    It doesn't bother her (much) anymore, and with her being--well, her--she's resigned herself to working in a morgue for the rest of her life where the only people who keep her company besides her boss, are the dead. No friends, no family. No one.

    But everything starts to unravel when a new neighbor moves in next door. The walls she's built come crumbling down for the uniquely handsome man who always wears a three-piece suit, complete with a pair of leather gloves, regardless of how hot it is.

    The chance encounter turns into frequent run-ins, with the single most important factor that had ruined any relationship she ever tried having in the past being absent.

    He has no life timer.

    Summary

    A collection of Reylo oneshots.

    Chapter 6: a ghost of a memory ~ part 1

     

    ‘Peaceful’ would be an awful way to describe her.

     

    Better yet, she was more still and pensive, even in her unconsciousness. Her face was not stressed, or her mouth pinched in thought. Hazel eyes were trapped behind closed eyelids, eyelashes at rest, not a flutter or squint in weeks.

     

    Calling her ‘peaceful’ felt like a cushion, to prevent them from hitting the hard truth.

     

    When Rey is left in a coma after an unexpected accident, Ben finds himself struggling to understand the virtue of patience and fear the chill of unanticipated loneliness.

    Summary

    As soon as Rey’s brain decides to function again, she thinks of the approximately three choices she has going forward and their consequences.
    Number One: She calls the bureau immediately and occupies Ben Solo for as long as it takes until they get there and arrest him. Number Two: She goes up on the roof, assesses the situation, tries to talk some sense into him and decide then if she will let him walk again - this being the most treasonous of the choices.
    Number Three: She does absolutely nothing and pretends she hasn’t seen anything.

    Three would require the least effort and if she does nothing, at least she can do nothing wrong. Number One is the right thing to do. Rey, resolved, stubs out her cigarette, flicks it into the dark and opts for option two.

    **

    Rey Kenobi and Ben Solo where children together once, in a wretched foster home with no one but each other to care about. Then life sent them on very different paths and after a whirlwind affair years later, Agent Rey Kenobi learns that Ben goes by the name of Kylo Ren now and is part of the organized crime ring The First Order - and now he is her new target and prime objective.
