  1. Summary

    This series starts with Little Ugly Tree, which I think is one of my better efforts. (Unfortunately) it's also a story that's kinda stuck with me and I wrote more, despite knowing very well that LUT stands best alone and ended when it should have. For these reasons, I have added the extra shit I wrote as a sort of sequel instead of a second chapter. This way it's easier for you to skip the extra bits if you like LUT as is.

    Summary

    Ava revisits that conversation a lot in the days that follow. In the few quiet moments she can carve out for herself, in the half-murk between wakefulness and much-needed sleep her tired brain pulls out each sentence that they had exchanged and turns it over carefully like a precious stone, letting the light of her memory glance across its surface from different angles, hoping that might change what's reflected back at her. It doesn't.

    Summary

    The mechanic isn’t just pretty – she’s muscular. And sweaty. And broad. Her shoulders are wider than they look at first glance, and as she reaches up to remove her hat and wipe at her brow with her forearm, Lena can see her bicep flex.

    Lena tries very hard not to be affected by that, or by the adorable red line the ball cap leaves on the woman’s forehead.

    “Hi! I’m Kara. James said your Porsche gave out?”

    OR

    Needing to get away from the stress of her job for a few months, Lena buys a summer lake house in the most remote town she can find. She fully intends on keeping to herself, resting, and interacting as little as possible with the local colour.

    That is until her car breaks down, and the town mechanic happens to be the hottest woman she’s ever seen.
