    Summary

    The Bella captain was curled up against her co-captain, eyes on her dimmed phone instead of the television screen. Slim, tan fingers combed gently through her hair as Chloe’s focus stayed glued to the film and it felt much like any other movie night in the Bella house.

    And then Emily yelled.

    “Hanahaki!”

    Beca tensed at the word as Amy yawned a half-hearted, “Gesundheit, Legacy.”

    Or: Beca's dying and she's not being dramatic, Chloe is confused, and lots of flower language is used.

    Summary

    “I have my backpack and my homework and all of my fingers and toes, Mrs. Wesley, I promise.” April says, somehow with both the bravado of a child and effortless politeness of an adult.

    Debbie can’t help but let out a laugh, somehow extremely charmed by this nine-year-old.

    “Well alright then, Miss April, looks like you’re coming home with us.”

    ---

    Or, Debbie Wesley inviting April Stevens into her home time and time again.

    Summary

    Mrs. Wesley smiles at her daughter and then April just watches as they start singing the song together, Sterling clumsily moving along to the music until Mrs. Wesley’s hands guide her, twirling Sterling as the late afternoon sun lights up both of their blonde hair.

    April doesn't quite know how to name what that sight does to her. Her friend - her best friend - so happy at home, like she was built to dance in this kitchen with her mother, makes her heart do that thing it always does around Sterling, feel these new ways to be content. But then, something darker slides in her ribs, this knowledge that she could never do this with her own mother, that same ease would never live in the walls of her home.

    Or, five times April watches Sterling dance, then joins her.

    Summary

    On the first day of senior year, Sterling walks with confidence as she sets her sights on joining the Willingham girl’s soccer team.

    “It’s going to be so great having two new people on the team this year,” one of the team members says excitedly.

    Sterling frowns. “Oh,” she starts, “no, Blair isn’t joining-“

    “Hey,” April’s voice sounds from behind her.

    This has got to be a joke.

    Summary

    As Sterling looks around the auditorium, a rush of relaxation settles in with the sense of anticipation. She knows this will be hard work, but she actually can’t wait to get started.

    And then the door to the theater swings open, and in walks April Stevens.

    The summer after junior year, Sterling and April take part in a production of The Sound of Music.
