    Summary

    "Is it always that heavy?"

    Dani looks up from where she has her head in Jamie's lap, catching the hazel eyes bearing down on her with such an open softness that she feels her own chest compress in response.

    "It is, but—" She reaches up, tangles her fingers gently around the chain hanging from Jamie's neck, if only to have something to do, something to hang onto, "—it doesn't feel that heavy now."

    Dani watches, lips parting in surprise, as Jamie takes the hand hovering over her chest in her own and presses it against her sternum; she can feel the way Jamie's heart is pounding just beneath it, thunderous, through the heel of her palm.

    "I'll carry this piece with you," Jamie promises into the air between them. "Her piece. Your piece. Let me feel it for the both of us."

    Summary

    “‘Owen, I’ve let you talk me into some insane shit over the years, but this is too much.’

    “Look,” Owen’s eyes soften, “you would be doing me a huge favour...”

    Jamie stubs her cigarette out, “You’re challenging me to prove that I’m a fully reformed member of society by faking a whirlwind romance with your heterosexual, American cousin which will ultimately culminate in an extremely illegal green card marriage?’”

    Or, Dani and Owen are cousins and Dani really needs a green card.

    Summary

    "Do you want to get off the train with me?” Dani is clearly nervous, but her gaze never leaves Jamie’s even as her fingers tap anxiously against her leg. “Just for the night. We can explore for a few hours and then you… you can get another train tomorrow morning.”
