    Summary

    Alexis knows what people assume about them.

    They see Twyla's bright café smile at work, and listen to how readily she agrees to whatever her customers want. They watch how Twyla hangs back during get-togethers, freeing up room for Alexis to take the spotlight and captivate the crowd. They notice how Alexis towers over Twyla in her heels, and how she's always one step ahead of her steady, cautious girlfriend.

    But they don't know what it's like when they're together.

    OR: Five times Twyla tops Alexis, and one time she lets Alexis top her.

    Summary

    Really, if Stevie doesn’t want David to read her texts, she can always just bring her phone with her, or even just turn it face down on the counter.
     

    So, naturally, when the screen flashes with a notification from a certain "Dumbass #1," of course he’s going to read it. Before he can actually read the damn text, though, Patrick sends another one, the initial message disappearing behind the absolute worst thing David has read in his entire life.

     
    Every inch of him snaps cold and deathly still as he reads and rereads “Well he’s not going to be my boyfriend much longer” until Stevie’s screen turns dark. He stares at it still, praying to anyone and no one that another text will show up, the punchline to a joke or a comment that clearly shows Patrick was being a sarcastic dick and that David has absolutely nothing to worry about. But nothing shows up.

    -----

    through a text sent to stevie that definitely wasn't meant for his eyes, david finds out that patrick is going to break up with him.

    Summary

    After all, how would all of that look? First Johnny put his trust in the wrong person, setting his family up to lose everything because he couldn’t pick a business partner. And then they land in a town that most maps won’t print the name of and he lets the same thing happen to his son?

    Johnny shakes his head and then shakes Patrick’s hand. A strong grip, practiced. Well-versed in the kind of business minutiae that David had never shown even a passing interest in until after Johnny had paid to ensure he never needed to.

    “It’s nice to meet you,” Patrick says.

    Nice try, buddy, Johnny thinks.

    Or, five times Johnny wasn't sure about Patrick and one time he was.
