    Summary

    There are husbands, and then there are Husbands.

    Anthony Bridgerton is a Husband.

    At least that’s what Kate insists when she stumbles home from Lady Danbury’s latest soirée, slurring her words and smelling of sherry.

    Apparently it’s a compliment.

    Summary

    In which Roy's world gets bigger and smaller at the same time.

     

    The half-day of campaign filming goes about as well as can be expected. The art director tries to coax Roy into looking the precise degree of stern and serious - which makes Keeley laugh. “You spend half your career scowling, and now you’ve got stage fright?” she asks, in mock-exasperation.

    Three months ago, Roy would have mistaken it for genuine exasperation, but in those three months he’s been studying Keeley Jones with the same single-minded focus he used to devote to poring over game reels and perfecting plays.

    It’s won him a nation’s heart before, but he finds lately he cares more about one particular heart; finds that one whoop of delighted laughter from her means more than the echoes of applause in some distant stadium ever had.

    Summary

    “Howdy!” Ted says brightly when Keeley answers the door, and despite how much he hates that word, Roy feels his shoulders drop just a fraction. Ted’s enthusiasm may be a bit much for him at 9am, but Roy knows if anyone can unfuck this particular quagmire, it’s Ted.

    Of course, that’s not how Ted puts it, crossing the threshold with a paper bag full of what smells like fresh pastries, balancing three coffees in a tray on his arm.

    “Heard y’all got yourselves in a bit of a pickle.”

    “It’s about the auction,” Keeley says, ushering him to the table while Roy waits a grand total of three seconds before reaching for the bag of sweets. There’s even a scone in there, the wanker.

    Summary

    The watch arrives from a local courier, in an Apple bag, not in a box with international postage, so she has no reason to suspect it's from Ted.

    But, it is. Of course it is.

    He calls – FaceTimes, actually – only moments after she's unwrapped it, having given up looking for a note.

    "You ready to be walking buddies?" he says, holding up his own wrist and matching watch for the camera to see.

    (post-s1, Rebecca/Ted)
