    Summary

    “The good news is,” Owen finally says, and from the way his shoulders slump, Dani’s not sure she believes him, “we’re not alone out here anymore, are we? We’ve got you, and Flora,” his eyes find Flora’s in the rearview mirror and she beams, wide and bright, her eyes sparkling in the afternoon sunlight, “and Miles, and Jamie now, too.”

    “Jamie?”

    “Yeah,” Owen shifts in his seat, “she’s the, uh…” he waves a hand, at once vague and clarifying as he turns, the steering wheel gliding smoothly beneath his other, “the… Security specialist? The one Henry hired.”

    Right, Dani thinks dumbly, the trappings of circumstance rushing back to her, that.

    It’s this, this, that Dani hadn’t signed up for.

    Dani Clayton had not signed up for a… Jamie.

    Summary

    owen counts her in and they glide through the minor scales together, jamie satisfied that her instrument is ready to go while owen finishes up some final tweaks.

    she turns to the piano again, this time catching dani looking right back at her. she’s not sure exactly what the protocol here is, opting for a half-smile and a small wave, which dani hesitantly returns, biting her lip.

    god, she’s pretty.

    Summary

    "This is really none of Hannah’s business. She should slip away now, go back to her bed where Owen is waiting for her, likely fast asleep. But she’s so concerned that the slightest sound of her leaving will startle them both, scare them away from hashing out the thing they’re edging around.

    Which, she believes it’s safe to assume, is this: Jamie finally kissing Dani; finally dragging their odd, but dear courtship into the light."

    [Dani and Jamie getting together through Hannah's (reluctant) perspective.]

    Summary

    “Can I tell you a secret?"

    "I'm good with secrets. Part of the bartenders code and all that."

    Dani smiles, eyes flitting up to Jamie’s. “I’m kind of glad I came to the wrong bar. I really wasn't in the mood to meet some random guy my friends think might be a good fit for me."

    "Bad taste?" Jamie asks

    "I hope not. They're friends with me, after all."

    "Not a good sign, in my opinion."

    Dani laughs, throwing her head back, and Jamie is determined to make that happen again as many times as she can before the night is over.

    Or: Jamie works at a dive bar in New York, Dani wanders in one night on accident, a slow burn ensues.

    Summary

    “Internalised homophobia’s a bitch, huh.”

    “Yeah.”

    They fall back into silence, and Jamie waits for Dani to break it, sensing there’s more coming. Even with the faint sound of one of Peter’s awful playlists in the background, the mildly musty smell of old wood, the atmosphere is intimate, the same kind of feeling Jamie imagines confessional booths to have. The way they’re standing, side by side without looking at each other, they’re not far off, she realises. Just need a little curtain and good to go.

    “Do you have a girlfriend?”
