    Summary

    “Your husband is gravely injured, my lady.”

    The envoy’s words should have pleased Lady Rey. After all, her husband was one of the dreaded Norman barons who invaded her beloved country and claimed the lands in the name of the bastard who now called himself king. Ben Solo had stormed her uncle’s keep, killed all the men who opposed their new conquerors, and claimed the stronghold for his own.

    He took the keep, he took the surrounding lands and, at the new king’s orders, took Rey to wife.

    Rey should have hated him. But, in the six months following their hasty and undesirable marriage, Rey found that hatred for her new husband was the furthest emotion from her heart and mind.

    Summary

    She’s sitting in the dark, in an oversized t-shirt and cutoff denim shorts. Sweat sticks to her skin. It feels like there’s a hole inside her that’s always there but she doesn’t always notice. Her best friend is sitting next to her. It’s the Fourth of July. She wants to scream. Wants to know if he feels it too, this gaping, wanting aloneness. She has to say something, but she doesn’t really know how, so the words that fall from her lips are:

    “Remember that game we used to play when we were kids?”

    Summary

    Wind ruffled his hair and Bellamy watched the countryside slide past. Acres of corn stretched all the way to the horizon, broken only by fences and the occasional lone farmhouse. Farther south the farmland had turned to dust, but up here, they were still plodding along.

    It felt like that’s all the country had been doing for the past four years— plodding along. Bellamy had tried to make do at first, but the factory shut down for good two years ago and with it went the last available jobs nearby. Bellamy was forced to leave Octavia in Indra’s care and set out, looking for whomever would hire him.

    Turned out, thousands of other men had had the same idea. So Bellamy became one of a roving band of men who moved from town to town in search of work. They traveled by the rail lines, and some had come to like it too much, in his opinion. Those men clumped into groups and he had fallen in with one at first but quickly learned to steer clear, their naked greed and viciousness turning his stomach.

    Now he traveled more or less alone, watching for his stop out the open train car door on a cloudless, searing day.

    Summary

    Bellamy knows that the best way to deal with his plus-one for the company cruise breaking up with him would be to just tell his boss that he's not bringing anyone after all, but his boss seemed so happy that he finally had a girlfriend, he'd really rather not.

    He was hoping Raven would just come with him, but when she tells him her ex-boyfriend runs an escort service and could find him someone, well, that works too, right? He could use some professional help.

    Summary

    He turns his head to the side to look at her, so Clarke mirrors him. They aren't touching, but they're lying close, fingertips nearly brushing. The moment stretches out, spanning centuries in just a few breaths. Anything is possible here.
    He links his pinky with hers, a point of contact. An anchor.

    a Bellarke Modern AU in which Clarke has the ability to visit other people’s dreams and Bellamy… is kind of a special case.
