    Summary

    “Can I get a –” The rest of her order falls away in surprise as the barista turns around. Golden blonde hair that’s tied into a high ponytail swishes over a slim shoulder and a pair of distinctive ocean blue eyes meet her own.

    The very last place she expects to see Dani Clayton O'Mara is serving coffee in a hipster-y café in downtown Boston.

    Jamie shakes her head when she realizes she’s staring. “Uh, sorry. Can I get an extra-large caramel macchiato?” She pauses, thinking about her mom’s wrath. “And a large chai latte.”

    Dani nods and gazes at her for a beat longer than Jamie expects, eyes wide, before she shakes her own head – Jamie guesses she isn’t the only one surprised by the turn of events. “It’ll be nine eighty-five.”

    Jamie gives her a twenty, before slipping the remainder into the tip cup as Dani turns to start making her drinks. Which is nice, because it gives her the opportunity to do what she really wants to do – stare unrepentantly.

    Dani shakes back her hair and looks at her, catching Jamie staring.

    She can feel her cheeks heat slightly but oh well.

    She offers a small smile. “So, how have you been?”

    Summary

    Dani has always been drawn to the underdog. The kids that don’t have the confidence or the means to fit in, to make friends, the kids who have been through something and need someone to lean on. It’s something Jamie has always gently teased her about - "sussed me out immediately, Poppins," - and it takes her back to her days before Bly, working with grieving children, children thrown into a new place where they didn’t know the language, children who couldn’t quite adjust to the expectations placed on them.

    Something about Clare is more personal, though.

    Clare reminds her of Jamie.

    Summary

    Masked Author Week 6 Theme: Holiday (3000 word limit)

    “A good summer,” her mother had told her once, “can change your life, Danielle. All it takes,” and she’d raised her glass, sunlight filtering through White Zinfandel, “is one good summer. Mark my words. One good summer,” and she’d brought her glass to her lips, tipped it back, “and nothing will ever be the same.”
