    Summary

    A different take on Rio's first meeting with the girls.
    This time, there's a fourth. An ER resident in training is at the wrong place at the wrong time, over for wine with the girls, when Rio shows up with his gun and his boys. She wasn't part of the Fine & Frugal debacle, but she's seen Rio and that's enough for her to be on the hook. Yet, when a mysterious figure threatens her, Rio's protective side comes out.

    Summary

    Rio considers the way that his and Beth's relationship is crossing the boundaries he's carefully maintained with other women. Also: Rio/Annie meeting, a late-night Christmas visit, and a confrontation with Dean.

     

    It’s not like the women he’s usually with ain’t like her in some ways—he doesn’t like dumb women, doesn’t like needy women, doesn’t like overly emotional types, and Elizabeth isn’t any of that, either. But he also doesn’t like mamas and housewives, which Elizabeth is. It’s unsettlin’ thinkin’ those parts of her might be the ones that have unraveled him, but it makes its own kinda sense.

     

    Rio’s been attracted to the women that can handle themselves in his world, but he’s always known they wouldn’t be interested in handlin’ the box with Marcus and the sisters, and that the women who were interested in that wouldn’t put up with the guns and the tire irons and the parts of him that thinks to drop fingers and ears off in the mail.

     

    Elizabeth’s a goddamned enigma, and while he likes that he knows all the ways to unravel her, he loves that she’s always surprisin’ him.

    Summary

    She's looking at him right now like she can hear everything that's in his head, like she knows his hearts running a mile a minute just from seeing her under the bars lights that makes her hair look like fire and her eyes are burning hot too. She looks like a goddess on any other day but with the way she's looking at him like she's clicked on just what he really is, Elizabeth is something other worldly that's burned a millennia for so many people just so they could stay warm, and now she's all hellfire for herself.

    Summary

    So, I love Good Girls to bits and pieces. This will be a retelling of the story of the first season through the eyes of Charlotte, Beth’s and Annie’s younger sister. She is an elementary school teacher, who is not involved in the heist, but will be dragged into the money laundering business, because of happenstance and one very unnerving gang banger, who just finds her way too interesting to leave her alone.

     _________________________________________

    The Boland’s dog waited by the door whining and Beth reached down, quietly talking in baby language to him. Charlotte couldn’t help but role her eyes at that, she always told Beth, that this was the most ridiculous habit. Her eyes still focused on the cream-colored mutt, she didn’t notice, that Beth had stopped right in the middle of her walking room and bumped into her. Beth’s groceries tumbled to the ground while her sister stood frozen solid in the middle of the room. Charlotte needed to strain her neck to look past her to see the centre of Beth’s attention. When she finally got the chance to look around her sister, she instantly understood, what probably gave Beth (and her) the scare of her life.

    Summary

    “Expensive car,” Dean concedes, rubbing his tongue along his teeth. “Lots of good stuff about the CTS, but you know, it ranks lower on reliability than its rivals. Expensive to fix.”

    “Yeah,” Rio nods before he downs the rest of his drink. “I can afford it, though.” Rio sets his glass down on the counter and then moves his hand to rest it on Beth’s knee. His hand is warm and he gives her a slight squeeze, which makes her stomach clench.

    Beth can’t help but smile. Dean stiffens, taking in Rio’s hand placement, and then he eyes Rio’s neck tattoo.

    “What is it that you do?”

    AU. Post-divorce Beth meets up with Annie at a bar, but Annie's late. While she's waiting, she runs into Dean and Amber. Rio pretends to be her date.

    Summary

    The man closest to the door shifts back in his chair and under the fluorescent light there’s no mistaking the bright gleam of metal as the man runs his palm down the barrel of a gun.

    Beth freezes next to one of the display cars, watching as Dean becomes even more flustered at whatever the man with the gun is saying, his nervous laugh loud enough that it breaches the glass walls of the office and echoes around her.

    -

    In a desperate move to save Boland Motors Dean makes a deal with Rio, but when he can't pay back his debt Beth is forced to make an unexpected offer to save her family.

    “It was Carlita.” She says after a moment, pain wrapped around her syllables.
    He pauses but then continues his administrations, “We don’t know that.”
    She’s pretty sure her jaw falls open onto the sink because what? “Yes we do,”

    Summary

    Post 2x07. Beth wonders and overthinks about Rio retrieving the dubby for him, and decides to call him in the middle of the night to ask him about it.

    ---

    How is that Rio calling her Elizabeth feels so… intimate?

    Beth chews on her cheek. Maybe that’s why he does it, she thinks, but then she pushes the thought away.

    No, she decides. No, intimacy has no place in their… whatever this is.

    They’d had sex—in a bar bathroom, not even a nice, clean bathroom—and they’d never even taken their clothes off, or kissed, or even made eye contact. She scoffs at herself, embarrassed that, even in her own private thoughts, she’d paired the idea of Rio and intimacy together.

    But then… he’d gone and gotten the dubby, hadn’t he? He was furious with her for her stupidity, and he’d yelled at her, insulted her, called her nothing more than a drug dealer, told her to get her head on straight—but—after that, he’d still gone. That meant something, didn’t it?

    --
    “I can handle myself.” She insists, doesn’t need him to protect her.
    Rio smiles, something slow and thoughtful at her words but also because he’s suddenly realized their position to one another. Heat pools unwantedly between her thighs and one of his hands move to rest beside where she’s seated on the desk.
    “You don’t gotta convince me, darlin’,” His thumb brushes along the outside of her thigh, “I know exactly what you’re capable of.”
