Any Questions?: October 2021 Halloween-Themed Drabbles

Chapter Text

Well, hello, there.

Not every day that a family like yours comes around.

You’re all interesting, but you, with the designer dress, blue eyes that gloss over food options--we’ll have to fix that--and the “boyfriend” with the private plane: you’re exceptional. And you want people, even here, to know. Your body’s probably been currency in ritzy hotels. Sleazy clubs.

I get it. Your attractiveness is a call-back, an anchor to before. You’re desperate for someone, anyone, to notice.

I do.

I don’t know you yet, but I will. Starting now. With your name.

It’s so nice to meet you, Alexis.
