    Summary

    David Rose knows the exact moment it all fell apart. He could see it on Patrick’s face, when he’d pushed too far, and propelled him straight (ha!) into Rachel Ward’s waiting arms.

    Summary

    “Patrick Brewer?” the woman on the other end asks when he picks up.

    “This is he.”

    “Hi Mr. Brewer, it’s Stacy from Elmdale Hospital. You’re listed as the emergency contact for a patient who was just brought in?”

    “Who is it?” Patrick asks, wracking his brain to try to remember who locally would list him as an emergency contact. There’s no one he’s that close to anymore. The only person here he’s ever been an emergency contact for is—

    “David Rose.”

    His ex-boyfriend. Right.

    Summary

    It’s been a shitty night, preceded by a long line of shitty nights, and all David wants is to go home, shower off the stench of desperate bar patrons, and wrap himself in sheets with an obscenely high thread count. Of course, there is still the ride back to his place. David can only hope his driver isn’t one of those friendly ones who tries to chat with you about how your night’s going or something.

    “So, how’s your night going?” his driver asks before David can even buckle his seatbelt.

    +++

    Recovering from a bad breakup, David relocates to the town he technically owns, and every time he drowns his sorrows at the nearest bar, he somehow ends up with the same snippy rideshare driver.
