    Summary

    Buddy Aurinko prided herself on her ability to adapt to any situation. It was part of what kept her alive for 50 years, and at the top of her criminal career for 30. It was how she’d escaped and thrived in prisons and parties alike, and it’s how she’d met Vespa. If someone tells you a secret, pretend you didn’t already know it. If someone thinks they know you, don’t call their bluff. If someone comes at you with a knife because you stole her wallet and heart, you win before you’re forced to give them back. 

    But back then it was as true as it is now, that Vespa Ilkay was the ultimate weakness to that ability. All that time, and Vespa had never once adapted for anyone, never changed because the situation demanded she be someone else, someone more. Vespa looked you in the eye and demanded you take her as she is, or else you’d regret it. Buddy had built her empire on bullshit, and Vespa had built hers on not leaving room for anything of the kind.
