    Summary

    'If anyone were to ask Tim - including Lucy herself - what it’s like to have Lucy stay with him, he’d respond that it's aggravating. And, on paper, it should be. She talks too much and leaves the empty milk cartons right next to the trash can and sings in the shower and she’s tried to cleanse his home with herbs twice. It’s been four days, and he’s already finding himself growling her name under his breath in exasperation more now than he ever did when she was his rookie. '

    OR:
    Lucy needs a place to stay. Tim's got a spare room. Things do not go to plan.

    Summary

    Lucy’s question came rather bluntly. “Why did you even come here Tim? Why not let me find out Monday morning, like everyone else?”

    “Because—” His hand dropped from the doorknob as he decided to take one final risk.

    “Because I’m not your boss anymore.”

    Or-
    A simple story in which Tim and Lucy finally decide to talk about it, all of it.

    Summary

    ‘Tim reads the same sentence three times before he takes any of it in. He’s starting on the next when he hears it.

    Music. So soft that he half thinks he’s imagining it, until he’s looking left and realising it’s Lucy singing. Something soft which reminds him acutely of his childhood, of summers sitting on the back porch of his grandparents’ house in the country and looking up at the stars, unfamiliar pinpricks in the darkness which the light pollution chased out of the city. Tim doesn’t think Lucy realises she’s doing it, and it's so quiet that he’s pretty sure he’s the only person in the room who can hear it.’

     
    OR
    Five times Tim listens to Lucy sing, in the quiet between big life moments.

    Summary

    *COMPLETE*

    Lucy's gaze darted down to his lips, then quickly back up to his eyes. “You couldn’t seduce me if you tried,” she said haughtily. “I, on the other hand, would have you wrapped around my finger in no time.”

    Tim shook his head and grinned smugly. “It would be so easy to seduce you, Boot.” He picked up his glass and ran his thumb over the condensation in slow, smooth circles before bringing it up his lips and finishing off the last of the whiskey in one long gulp. “If I wanted to.”
