    Summary

    They sit together on the Hanna City East Line, the city blurring past them in a kaleidoscope of neon signs and streetlamps in the blue-gray December afternoon. The elevated train swoops low underneath the city as it plunges into a tunnel. Ben looks over at Rey the entire time, at her reflection as she stares out the window. Lights in the car flicker on, off. On, off.

    Being on the subway for a while feels like being on a submarine. They ascend the stairs with wobbly sea legs and break the surface into the bustling heart of downtown.

    “First Order Records, or Resistance?” Rey asks.

    “First Order,” Ben says, without hesitation. “They have a better selection.”

    The look on her face doesn’t go unnoticed.

    “What?”

    “Nothing,” she says. “I just didn’t take you for being so… corporate.”

    Ben laughs. “Oh, to be seventeen again.” He laughs even harder at her answering scowl.

    Summary

    Thirty-six items in the weirdest order she'd ever seen. Rey wasn't exactly sure where she'd put some of them if she was reorganizing them. Specifically, ones like #32: Eat someone out on a piano. She bit back a laugh and wondered if he'd ever admit to stealing the idea from Pretty Woman. Then, there were ones she didn't understand. What the hell was A/B/O and how, exactly, did one role play it?

    Alternatively, Rey discovers her neighbor is hopeless with computers. She also discovers he has quite an interesting to-do list...one she wants to help him with.

    Summary

    The first time Ben sees Rey in a bikini, his oafish left hand just sort of spasms around a new tube of Neutrogena SPF 100+ face sunscreen, squeezing hard enough that nearly half its thick white contents erupts—coating his palm, the mirror, and the floor—in one great big mortifying spurt.

    It’s a metaphor from the universe even he can’t ignore.
