    Summary

    “I’m Stevie Budd,” she steps closer and Twyla catches the soft smell of baby powder, lavender, sweat and cut grass. It’s delicious, and for a split second Twyla wants to ask her how she smells so good after all that practice, but before she can, Stevie asks, “you can’t read, can you?”

    And Twyla’s officially been found out. She presses her lips together and nods and it’s nothing, but it’s enough that Twyla doesn’t miss the ripple of noise that passes through the crowd of girls sitting on the ground, standing in the red dirt along the foul line. She doesn’t miss the way Stevie cuts the crowd a look, the way the noise seems to lessen slightly, but it doesn’t stop the tears from welling to the brims of her eyelids, her nose warm and itchy as she forces herself to stare at the ground.

    “Hey, hey,” Stevie says, and she puts a hand on Twyla’s shoulder, it’s warm weight a welcome sensation to the cool flush Twyla feels, even in the midafternoon sun. “It’s alright. We just need to…” she trails off and starts to drag a finger down the list, making it about two-thirds of the way down before her finger stops on one of the lines of letters. “Here. This is you. ‘Twyla Sands’. You made it, you’re a Peach like me.”

    Summary

    David loves the fall. Snuggling into his favorite sweaters against the crisp morning air. The warm sunlight slanting though the windows of the store in the afternoon. Hot chocolate in the evenings.

    However, he wasn’t thrilled with Patrick’s new addition to this fall.

    Patrick started a fantasy (American) football league, which was turning fall into spreadsheets and statistics and a whole new roster of names and sports terms. Not to mention spending Sundays watching football, when there were many, many more fun things they could be doing on their day off.

    Summary

    So if Patrick wanted to spend time with him watching a baseball game, David would happily cheer on the players in a game he knew nothing about. If it would make Patrick smile, if it would allow them to spend time together outside of work, he would do it without question.

     

    Patrick has a baseball viewing party, and David has a lot of feelings.
