    Summary

    "So let me get this straight," he says. "You're a dryad."

    "Quite so," she cheerfully replies.

    "Like an actual—" His hand rises to make a feeble gesture at the towering elms that surround them— "tree-dwelling, speaks-with-animals, has-magical-powers, frolics-through-the-woods-in-orgiastic-pagan-frenzy dryad?"

    She wrinkles her delicately freckled nose. "Well, I don't know about orgiastic frenzy, that's really more of a maenad type of deal."

    He looks her up and down, taking in her pretty face and her slender figure in the skimpy white dress.

    "Too bad," he mumbles.

    Summary

    “Here’s my cell. I want you to call or text me with any concerns, and I’ll be sure to send you some updates about Ren going forward.”

    “Wow, that is…” She tells herself that he probably does this for all the parents. That it doesn’t mean anything. “I really appreciate it, Mr. Solo.”

    “Ben is fine,” he murmurs.

    She reaches across the desk to take the post-it from him, the extension of his arm making the sleeves of his shirt ride up a fraction of an inch. There’s a flash of inked color there that wraps all the way around his wrist, and she has to suppress her surprise from reading on her face because how far does that go up? And he isn’t wearing a wedding ring. Not that it matters. Not that it’s important.

    Suddenly it’s a thousand degrees warmer in the room.

    In which Rey thinks she has completely sworn off men—until she meets her son’s pre-K teacher.

    Summary

    Is he really going to fuck a stranger?

    He could still leave. He could walk out of here and call Rey up and be a fucking man about it and take her to dinner and hopefully soon walk into a bedroom with her sprawled out and waiting and he—

    His chest feels tight when he thinks of her laugh that’s just a little too loud and her eyes that are definitely too bright and the way she says his name: soft, quiet, like a secret—

    No. A girl like that would never… She just wouldn’t.

    Ben takes a deep breath, reaching for the blindfold, then the doorknob, and he knows there’s no going back.

    In which Ben’s anonymous sex isn’t that anonymous after all.
