    Summary

    “I was happy you’ll be working with someone you know. He’ll take good care of you.”

    Take good care of you.

    The words send a shiver down her spine, sparking memories that flood her with embarrassment. She feels a strange itch just below her ear, her gland giving a phantom pulse as if her body remembers the incident even still.

    Suddenly her triumph fades into dread, the idea of working here leaving a hollow pit in her stomach. Poe is still talking, but she doesn’t hear most of it. Her mind is firmly trapped in the vivid memories of six years ago— in a moment she wishes she could forget.

    By the time she hangs up the phone— she isn’t sure anymore if she can do this.

    Summary

    Rey managed to make it the weekend without any hiccups--well, besides Sam’s after a long feed. Ben hadn’t caught her singing Madonna to Sam again and she had not, under any circumstances, referred to him as daddy another time. Twice was bad enough but a third time? That was a verifiable pattern.

    In any other situation, she wouldn’t have thought twice about calling him daddy in front of Sam but there had been something weighted and fiery in his eyes when she had initially said it, something she wasn’t sure she wanted to explore. She was there for Sam, not because she thought his father was attractive--which he was. Very much so.

    It was difficult to imagine a woman leaving him.

    Summary

    “Is it working, for you?” Maybe it comes out a little needy, but Rey tells herself that it’s only because of how low she has to pitch her voice to talk to him. “Or do you maybe want to fake-break up?”
    Ben doesn't answer for a second. Then, just as Doctor Phasma takes the mic to thank the speaker and ask the audience if anyone has questions, Rey hears him say, “No. No, I don’t want to fake-break up.”

    They're not dating for real. Right?
