    Summary

    “I hope-” Bella swallowed thickly against the lump in her throat, “I hope you remember this.” She had meant to say to remember her, to remember them. But after it left her mouth, she didn’t want to take it back. Because deep inside of Bella there was a child who watched her mother pack her things up in the middle of night for another “weekend away”, the child who had felt awkward calling her father to wish him a Merry Christmas, the child who now reared its head in this desperate moment and prayed that Edward would remember breaking the heart of an eighteen-year-old girl in a shitty town called Forks.

    “I will.”

    Where Bella gets better. She laughs, she has friends, and eventually, she loves again.

    Summary

    Devi takes a deep breath. “When you called me an unfuckable nerd, I decided I wanted to prove you wrong. Lose my V-card. That was my goal for this year. It’s how the whole thing with Paxton got started, actually.”

    Regret washes over Ben like the heat from the fire, starting at the top of his head and melting all the way down his body. “Jesus, Devi,” he says, “I didn’t actually mean it.”

    “You did,” she says, looking down into her drink. “It’s fine, being mean to each other is our thing.”

    California announces Covid-19 stay at home orders when Devi is living at Ben’s house in S01E10. His parents are stuck overseas, Patty is quarantining with her own family and Nalini and Devi are in a Cold War.

    Summary

    “We do this on my schedule. If you’re not available when I am, tough luck. You’re welcome to fail your test.”

    Devi sneers. “You passed, didn’t you? So clearly they’ll give a license to anyone.”

    Ben hums. “That brings us to condition number two: no snide comments about my driving. If my skills are good enough to co-opt, you’re not allowed to mock them.”

    “Anything else?” she asks through gritted teeth.

    “One last thing.” He takes a step closer to her, and she finds herself fixed under the weight of his stare, pulse leaping. “My agreeing to this does not mean we’re friends again.”

    For one painful second, the grip Ben Gross somehow managed to get on her heart earlier that year exerts itself, squeezing tight. And then she’s rolling her shoulders back and giving him a wolfish grin. “Oh, Gross. We were barely friends in the first place”
