    Summary

    The much bigger surprise, however, came from Mrs Rose. A kindness of a sort so very specific to a woman for whom, Stevie knew, performance was a life’s calling. She offered Stevie an opportunity to take up space. To be someone else. To take all her pain of rejection and, instead of burying it, use it to make something.


    When Stevie Budd took on the role of Sally Bowles she could never have known how much she would gain from it.

    Summary

    “You understood the point of a dissertation it took me six months to write,” Flynn continues. “Me, focused, for six months, Eve. You learned all this - why?”

    Eve can’t help but turn a little red; he’s too smart for her to equivocate. It’s better for her, as tired and emotionally exhausted as they both are, just to be straightforward. “I’m your Guardian,” she says simply. “And… the other three, I understand. I just wanted to understand you.”

    That familiar fond and awed look, the one that told her only hours after they met that he was into her, deepens as he studies her. “Eve,” he says, deep and gravelly, “you’re-”

    “Henge?” She interrupts, smiling. “Key?”

    “Incandescent,” he corrects, taking one more step forward so he can grasp her hands in his. “Singular.”
