    Summary

    And Beatrice is not good; she is not holy; she is not worthy of her vows. She is taking advantage of Ava’s good nature, of her warmth, of her need for physical intimacy. She knows that she is. She knows that when Ava reaches for her in the dark it isn’t because she’s reaching for Beatrice so much as she’s reaching for someone. A body. Any body would suffice. Beatrice’s body, with its racing heart and its trembling fingers, with its weak-kneed sensibilities and inability to say no, just happens to be near.

    And Beatrice is not good; she is not holy; because she does not stop it from happening. She leans into it. She draws Ava into herself, she breathes in the scent of Ava’s shampoo, she revels in the warmth of her skin beneath her clothes, in the perfect way Ava’s soft curves seem to meld against her own hardness. Beatrice is all sharp edges. She is stern, she is steel.

    She is weak, for Ava and everything about her.

    Summary

    “What does platonic mean?” Tommy H asks, looking up from the paper Robin had spent an hour perfecting her messiest handwriting for.

    “…At least a B- or you get half your money back,” Robin replies, thumbs hooked through the straps of her backpack. “Four pages, that’s ten bucks.”

    “Jesus Christ, Buckley, that can’t be legal,” Tommy says, digging around his bag for cash anyway.

    “This isn’t legal,” Robin deadpans, holding out a hand to take the slightly crumpled five dollar bills he offers her.

    “Right.”

    “Thank you for your business.” She waits for him to turn and leave the empty classroom they’d met in. Then, “Stupid fucking asshole.”

    OR: Steve recruits Robin to write letters to Nancy Wheeler for him. She only kind of regrets it.

    Summary

    Nancy takes the opportunity to properly stare. Robin’s nose is pointed; her lips naturally part a little, leaving her front two teeth half-visible; her eyelashes are like spider legs, splayed top and bottom, painted a deep black. She’s got the kind of face you remember for the rest of your life. Nancy’s gaze catches on the wide gap between Robin’s brows. My lips would fit there perfectly, she thinks.


    Nancy has never run from what she’s wanted and she’s not about to start now.

    Summary

    And then it’s just her and Robin, together in the middle of the party. And Nancy’s confused for a second; this is exactly what she wanted, so why does she still feel so mad? Something still churns in her gut, annoyance and anger and overwhelming possessiveness coalescing into a hard little ball that demands her attention, and her mind is still seething with furious little thoughts and Robin’s looking at her with a mix of confusion and softness and she just wants to—

    Oh.

    Before Robin can even open her mouth to question her, Nancy’s extracting herself from her embrace, grabbing her hand and tugging her towards the stairs. She marches ahead, Robin following, pushing past writhing teenagers with determined fury. That anger, that cold, icy selfish need to have Robin to herself has turned hot and molten in her stomach. It’s no longer quite as fiery, but it’s just as consuming, and as they reach the stairs, Nancy realises what it is she wants.

    She’s proved that Robin is hers to Vickie. Now she wants to prove it to Robin, too.
