    Summary

    When Bitty arches his back to crack it and asks, “D’you ever just…wanna get in the car and drive?” he’s kind of expecting to hear ‘Uh, not really, seeing as I’m a professional athlete living out all my dreams,’ or maybe a vaguely commiserative ‘yeah, dude, totally.’

     

     

    He’s not expecting Kent to push up onto his forearms to look up at Bitty from his sprawl on the floor and say, with all the conviction of someone who’s been told they could solve world hunger with the press of a button, “Let’s do it.”

     

     

    Or: Kent and Bitty go on a road trip.

    Summary

    Alexei isn't a manipulative person by nature, but he's observant, and he has a generous heart. At some point between being Bitty's friend and being his shoulder to lean on, Alexei found himself setting the pieces up to fall his way, and waiting for something that might never come. And then there was Kent Parson, who somehow happened in the middle of it all.

    A story where patience and steadfast kindness leads to a happy ending (except for one Jack Zimmermann).
