    Summary

    She’s on her fourth patient when the door to the ward opens, and she hears Owen talking lowly with someone. She turns her head to see a blonde woman next to him, brightly shining eyes and a pretty face, the kind of warmth radiating from her that Jamie’s only ever seen portrayed in films. It’s tangible, the first thing Jamie really picks up on. She’s everything Jamie tends to get described as the opposite of - approachable, friendly, comforting. It practically rolls off of her.

    “Ah, Dr. Taylor, this is Dr. Clayton. She’s joining us from, Idaho, was it?”

    “Iowa,” Dr. Clayton corrects him.

    Oh God. She’s American.

    Summary

    There is no way on God’s green earth that Dani would ever voluntarily decide to dress up as a sexy Christmas elf if she wasn’t painfully, desperately in need of some cash.

    Well, that—

    And maybe the fact that the girl running the flower shop across from the Christmas market can’t seem to look away.

    Summary

    “I’m sure.” Lena doesn’t mean to snap —it’s more of a mild annoyance if anything because if her once best friend doesn’t know that there is no way in hell she would be doing this if she didn’t want to, if she didn’t, however unwillingly, trust Kara with this, then did she ever know her at all? “As long as you’re amenable, Kara, I’m offering my complete consent. Is that okay, or would you like it in writing as well?”

    For the first time, Lena’s snipe and the crystal clear memory of their last phone call just makes Kara smile. “I’m good,” she says softly.

    “Good.”

    “You know, a week ago, the morning after we— I’d convinced myself it was a dream. I was scared to check my call log.”

    “Do you have many wet dreams about me, Kara?”

    Kara laughs suddenly, though she can’t help but feel like she’s been missing out on an essential experience. “No.”

    “Shame.”

    “You, uh, you hung up last time,” Kara ventures hesitantly. “Before I could…”

    “If you’re worried I didn’t complete the mission, I’m happy to inform you that I did.”

    “No, before I could tell you that you sounded beautiful.”

    Or, the one with phone sex and feelings and the complexity of forgiveness.

    Summary

    Trying to get his photography career off the ground, James comes up with an idea to do a couples photo shoot...with two complete strangers (this is apparently a recent trend. go google it if you're curious. I couldn't believe it until a 'friend' of mine got dragged into one, hence the inspiration for this story)

    He already has one person in mind, his reclusive friend Lena, who seems adamant to stay single forever after a messy split with her ex. And after a lot of convincing from her sister, Kara agrees to participate in the shoot as well. Neither Lena nor Kara expect anything to come of it. It's just a photo shoot, after all. But perhaps James is just as good a matchmaker as he is a photographer...
