    Summary

    Anna is well on her way to assuming her place at her father's corporation when she runs away with nothing but a backpack full of clothes, her sketchbook and a wad of cash she's saved up and stolen from her father's safe. She doesn't know what she wants to do with her life, but knows she has to get away from her father's strict household and the plan he has for her. She doesn't make it very far before she meets Jo, a drifter spending her life on the road, making money off the deadbeats and truckers she hustles at dive bars. On a whim, Jo offers to drive her to California and Anna agrees. Even though they both know it's temporary—just until Jo gets Anna to California—they can't seem to stay out of each others' orbit. Somewhere between the breakdown in Oklahoma and a day spent hiking the Grand Canyon, they find themselves becoming more than just two girls on the same road trip.

    Summary

    The proximity alarms start to go off and Charlie’s heartbeat, settled in the easy familiarity of the drift, picks up again. The interface in front of them shows them Okami where it rises out of the ocean, four legs pumping through the water as it swims in a rolling paddle of clawed hands. The snout is long, the head narrow, and thinking of the vintage video game that came out sometime during her childhood, she decides it’s a particularly apt codename.

    “Ready to gank us a kaiju, Charlie?” Dean says, and she can feel him steeling himself beside her, tensing for battle under the sheen of his bravado.
    --
    In which Dean and Charlie are drift compatible, Charlie is a babe-magnet and both of them are huge dorks. Inspired by this post.
