52: Picture

“What are you looking at?” “Nothing.” Clumsily, C.C. shoved her phone between her legs, but even late into her pregnancy, Milly was too fast. Plucking the phone, she unlocked it, only for her eyes to widen. Eyebrows vanishing into her hairline, Milly turned to her friend, speechless, who only stood abruptly from her seat and…

51: Barm

"Do you reckon you want to get a pasty barm or something?""Cor, I'd kill for some nosh right now. How about it, princess? D'you like a barm?" Amused, she tightly wrapped her coat around herself as she glanced between her husband and his closest friend. Trying – and failing miserably – to hide her smile,…

49: Rabbit

“So, why exactly do you call him rabbit?” Milly snorted before choking on her drink. Coughing, she smiled at her friend’s mother, who had raised a brow at her daughter’s silence. Crossing her arms, she knocked on the glass table, making the other brunch-ers glance in their direction. “Surely there must be a good reason?”…

48: Flightless Bird

“You should go up and sing.” There was a snort from her right, and she glanced over to see her friend set her glass down. Wiping her mouth with a napkin, she leaned forward and set her arms on the table as she spoke just loud enough to be heard over the next performer in…

47: Ceremony

She woke with a jolt. Sweat soaking into the sheets, she looked up at the dark ceiling. To her left, she could see the weak, grey light of the city seeping into the room from the window on his side of the bed. Reflexively, she reached for him – to curl up beside him or,…

Glancing up at the display board listing his flight, he switched the phone to his other ear as he pulled the papers out. Grasping his phone again, he straightened up as he walked towards the check-in station. Smiling…

45: Handlebar

When he came back home from the studio, he was stunned to find his wife in the kitchen slipping off her apron. Setting his bag down on one of the island stools, he hesitantly reached out, as if he wasn’t quite sure if she was real or just a figment of his imagination. “How…?” “Milly…

44: Shell Suite

Standing up from bidding goodbye to Liesl, Lelouch opened the door to make a trip to the grocer’s – ever since Milly had made a dragon out of herself and locked away his wife in some tower like some video game princess, the amount of care and thought he’d put into his meals had fallen…

Track Forty-Three: Black Sheep

“So what exactly is our working budget?” When there was no response, Milly glanced up from the paper she had just headlined. Tapping the end of her pen on her friend’s flashy wedding ring, she cocked a brow. “C.C.? I’d like your undivided attention please. This is your dream wedding, remember? Not mine. It’s not…
