    Summary

    She glances sideways at Madison again, and she's just in time to see Madison look over at her sharply before the younger woman rolls her eyes. "If you've got something to say to me, just fucking say it."

    "You've been giving me things. Why?"

    Madison stares back at her flatly. "I don't know what you're talking about."

    Misty shakes her head, amused at the continued attempt at denial. "Oh, I think you do."

    ***

    Or: Misty keeps getting random (but incredibly nice???) gifts from a mystery person, Madison is terrible at trying to apologize, and they spend a lot of time sitting on benches talking in the middle of the night.

    Summary

    ‘I love you, do you hear me? I will not lose you,’ Mildred whispers one more time, thumb resting upon Gwendolyn’s cheek. She closes her eyes, giving in to the gentleness of Mildred’s touch, perfume and warmth.

    ‘Oh, Mildred…’ Her voice wavers, unable to hold back how much she wants this, how long she’s waited to hear Mildred say those words.

    OR

    I wish they'd shown us what happened after that very hungry kiss so I was OBLIGED to write my own version.
