    Summary

    “You really shouldn’t ask questions like that,” he cautioned. Rey was trapped in his gaze, her heart beating at double speed. No one had touched her like that before. No man, at least. His hand was so much bigger than her own — it completely engulfed her. He could have probably broken it if he wanted to.

    “Why?” Rey squeaked out, eyes locked where their hands touched.

    “Just say yes, Rey,” his thumb swiped along the curve of her wrist. “Come on.”

    Summary

    “How long have you felt like this?” she asks again. 

    “I– You don’t– Rey–” 

    How long?

    He gulps, his hands trembling by his side. Then, his voice goes softer, when he finally admits, “Ever since we met.”

    Ben,” she gasps, bringing a hand to her mouth. She sounds almost pained and he winces. “Why– Why didn’t you ever say anything? Five hundred years– you’ve been hiding this for five hundred years–”

    “I didn’t want to ruin this,” he interrupts her, quietly. “Us. This friendship.”

    -- or: the love letters Ben has spent the last five hundred years writing to Rey are suddenly picked as part of an exhibit at the Coruscant Museum of Contemporary Art. Too bad, then, that he never actually confessed his love to Rey.

    Summary

    To pretend the entire situation wasn’t happening, she walked over to a sprawling plant, set on a table in a gorgeous jade and gold pot. She reached out with a fingernail (self-administered Sally Hansen manicure) to stroke one of the dark, glossy leaves.

    Ben made a little sound that could only be called distressed and she turned to find him watching her, his shoulders slightly tensed. He cleared his throat and then: “Please. Sophia doesn’t like to be touched.”

     

    Or: This Valentine's Day, Rey just wants to get laid. She gets five grand and Ben Solo instead.

    Summary

    "I have just learned the most shocking news. Miss Netal, whom we all thought Ben Lord Solo would ask in marriage, and who had been accepting his attentions for some time, has gotten engaged to the old Duke of Grummgar! I can scarcely believe one could reject a young, handsome man (for Lord Solo is, indeed, very handsome) and future earl for a much older prospect, only because the latter has a higher title!

    It is my belief that B Lord Solo deserves a far better match than Miss Netal — and I shall take it upon myself to see that he finds one.

    Yours affectionately,

    Rey Niima"

    Summary

    Maybe Steve’s hallucinating. Maybe he’s fallen down the cellar steps and cracked his head open because this can’t be happening. Billy is dead. Steve watched him die. But here he is, alive and in Steve’s cellar and making a joke like he didn’t get stabbed by a monster tentacle and isn’t pale and shaky and barely standing, face and hair smeared with mud.
