    Summary

    “I meant it when I said congratulations.”

    Lucy looks away from him. “But?”

    “No but,” Tim says, he doesn’t want to fight. Doesn’t want to even be here now, talking about his feelings on someone else’s patio.

    “I don’t need your approval!”

    Tim scoffs, “then why are you chasing me down on a Friday night, mad that I turned off my phone?”

    “Because!” Lucy shouts, “because you’re important to me! And we’re friends, and I don’t need your approval, but I do want your support.”

    Here’s the thing, Tim knows it will start a fight, but he has to say it. “I don’t support this.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    She still feels like a kinship to the pictures she saw of Oregon when she was researching the trip, the lush verdant trees, the angry water of the Pacific that was different from the ocean she knew at home. But, the kinship has changed, it’s not about being wild and uncontrollable, not anymore. Now it is about the deep roots, the lush promise of life, the untamed beauty of it all. She had been edging towards that understanding, that healing, since she came home, and here, in the beach house bedroom she was never meant to occupy

    Summary

    The champagne makes her do it.

    Seriously, she was doing fine with the tequila and beer, but the moment Nolan orders a bottle of champagne she’s done. Cooked. Sunk. About a step past tipsy.

    Which is, of course, when the paranoia hits. Lucy has this fleeting thought that she’s in a cop bar, surrounded by fellow cops, but then the crowd parts and she sees Nyla. It’s a stark reminder of her own scare, and suddenly Lucy feels very unsafe and very exposed. She turns to Tim, the only other person left at the table with her while the rest of the Rookies and TO’s mingle, and Lucy slides her chair closer, curling her hand around his bicep.

    “Don’t let me out of your sight.”

    Tim raises his eyebrows. “What?”

    It’s not really a surprise that she’s an absolute mess brushing her teeth. There’s spearmint foam on her chin, coating the brush, and all over the sink. Tim swipes at her face with a facecloth, she’s still sleep logged so she lets him.

    Summary

    It wasn’t like breathing or trembling or fire. It was none of the things other people had described to her, and it was somehow more than what she’d been told to expect. For her, it was like a curtain of silence had been drawn around the two of them. The hush was so heavy she felt like she could part it with her hand as her eyes locked with His.
    He shot to his feet almost as quickly as she did, and somewhere in the back of her mind she knew she should’ve heard the sound of his chair clattering to the floor, but she heard nothing. Just that thick silence, as heavy as a cloud that hung over them punctured only by the melody of her timer and the repeated beep of his.
    The silence faded when Officer Bradford -her training officer and, apparently, her soulmate- uttered a single word that everyone in the roll call heard, but Lucy loudest of all.
    “Shit.”

    Summary

    Sometimes doing the right thing didn’t feel so right. Especially as she was packing up the apartment she could no longer afford. Because she didn’t have a job. Because she did the right thing.

    Kowtowing to a politically motivated boss wasn’t in Holly’s wheelhouse. It wasn’t something that she would ever do and her career was obliterated because of it.
