Claire and Frank Randall are now hopeful that through an artificial insemination procedure from an unknown sperm donor, they could finally have the family they have always dreamed of. But when their happy marriage slips away and Frank leaves her and their daughters for good, she moves on from her gloomy life in London and settles down in Boston, where she chances upon a Scottish forest kindergarten teacher named Jamie Fraser. In a brand new world, Claire, Faith and Brianna do not only discover good company, but also a truth that would affect their lives greatly.
A modern-setting Outlander fic where a lab mix-up brings Jamie and Claire together.
11 Apr 2021
23 year old Jamie is expected to pick and marry a simple, meek, obedient girl from his father's parish and become a priest worshiping at the Christian Orthodox church's altar.
And he eventually would have, had Claire not moved into his neighborhood, opening up a flower shop.
But Claire is not from his father's parish. She is definitely not simple, meek nor obedient.
And she's 31. 8 years his senior.
Pretty soon, Jamie finds himself worshiping at a different altar altogether.
This work is an entry for @outlanderpromptexchange's challenge, song lyrics, over on tumblr. My song selection for the prompt is "How will I know" cover by Sam Smith, particularly “I fall in love whenever we meet / I'm asking you what you know about these things“.
