    Summary

    “So…” Ava starts, her voice soft and childish as always. Only it isn’t childish? Childlike, maybe. The happy tilt of the words makes the sentences always flow melodiously to Beatrice's ears.

    Beatrice had missed it.

    She doesn’t turn from the task she has, though, not even to witness Ava’s sly smile.

    “Yeah?”

    “There's only one bed.”

    She pauses unintentionally. She rises as she connects the last wire. “So there is.”

    Summary

    Beatrice finds herself musing not over duty and sacrifice and God, but the truth of angels, if they can be created rather than summoned. If they can take the form of women with overeager mouths and careless limbs and eyes with a depth that beckons - a crooked finger, a spiral staircase - if they can be both human and not, both beautiful and terrifying.

    Ava asks, What do you want, Beatrice?

    (Tell me and I’ll give it to you. Tell me and I’ll build you a home there. Tell me and I’ll rearrange the universe to make it all fit, angels and demons be damned. Tell me it’s me. Me. Me.)

    Summary

    The Warrior Nun could not help but narrow her eyes at the girl with glasses. The girl had a permanent smile, innocent but definitely hopeful. The constant hair tucking behind the ears, glasses readjusted every few minutes. Gosh, Ava wanted to just crush a glass in her hands at the sight.

    As if sensing Ava’s Halo about to burst out, Beatrice turned around and gestured for her to join them.

    Ava knew just what to do.

    Summary

    “So… you’re not mad?” The alcohol was already settling, warm and heavy in Beatrice’s stomach, and the words were out before she could stop them.

    “Mad?” Ava asked. “Why would I be mad?”

    “I’m not sure,” Beatrice said. She had run through this conversation a thousand times in her head. Sometimes, the scenario ended with Ava telling her they couldn’t be friends anymore. Sometimes, it ended in a way that would make Beatrice blush to think about in public. Either way, she never pictured it being this casual.

    “It’s cool,” Ava said.

    “It’s–it’s ‘cool?’”

    Ava shrugged. “Yeah. I mean, I used to have a ridiculous crush on you too, so I guess we’re even, right?”

    Camila accidentally spills the beans to Ava about Beatrice’s feelings. They deal with it like idiots. College AU.

    “Are you sure? ”

    “Yeah, we’re sure and she was asking for you”
