Fallen socialite David Rose only needed 24 hours, and a $1.2 million wedding, to bring one man’s love life and career to a grinding halt.
With that opener, reporter Patrick Brewer creates the legend of the Runaway Rose. A man who has left three separate partners at the altar. But having only one source (namely fiancé #2 Sebastien Raine) gets him in trouble with his editor and he decides to seek out and interview the real David Rose. If only the man was willing to talk about his past.
David’s life only has room for his business’s grand opening (date TBD) and wedding planning with his fiancé Jake. Why would he ever want to provide more tabloid fodder for some “journalist?”
Or: The Runaway Bride AU that wouldn’t leave me alone.
“Did you see the gorgeous stenographer we got today?”
“Yeah. He’s beautiful.” Derek didn’t notice the slight echo or the fact that the reporters had all frozen in their spots.
When Isaac bumped him in the side with his elbow, Derek heard the telltale feedback screech of the microphone in front of him.
“Dude,” Isaac said. “The mics are working now.”
In the unnerving silence that followed, Isaac unnecessarily added, “Also, I was talking about the girl next to him.”
Or Derek blurts out his attraction to the male stenographer at a NCAA press conference.
