    Summary

    Cleo lights her cigarette and opens Beth’s suitcase on the bed. She pulls out a dress and lays it down, running a long fingernail across the weave. “This one’s pretty.”
    Beth flicks her eyes from the dress to Cleo. This is that moment in chess she loves so very much, the pivotal move. The single push of a pawn that changes the direction of the whole game, meaningless without the context of the board, of the players, of the direction of the game.
    She stands before Cleo in her silk slip and near to shivering.
    She pushes a pawn of her own. “Well. Go on. Put it on me.”

    (Or, the year is 1970 and Beth is in Paris again. And she's not the only one.)

    Summary

    The room is dark.

    “Lie to me,” Cleo says, and her voice is far too soft for it to just be friendly.

    Beth’s stomach twists. The upward turn of her eyebrows, the curve of her chin gleam in the dark. Her face has always been cool angles, clean lines, smooth plains—and perhaps the flutter of her heart is a lie, the way she aches, hopes Cleo finds her beautiful.

     

    or; the hidden scene at the hotel between beth and cleo

    Summary

    This fic explores Beth Harmon's spiral after her crushing defeat with Borgov in Paris and how her relationship with Cleo could change help prevent her from falling further down the rabbit hole. Cleo is there for Beth, not because Beth needs her to be, but because there is mutual attraction there that wants to blossom into something more.
