Notes: This idea has been sitting in my head for a few months now, and I finally decided to write it. It didn’t turn out as well as I dreamed, but it’s still alright. I hope you all enjoy it. ☺ Edit: I realized I posted the already-saved draft without editing it to give thanks to @paperclipmac for beta reading this for me. Thank you, my dear Sierra. 💜
When you and Alex were teenagers, you could never picture him living domestically. Alex Summers didn’t seem to fit in with the idea of a white picket fence, a dog, and kids playing in the yard. But he would tell you all the time, with an expression full of sincerity and love, “I’m gonna marry you. I’m gonna put up that stupid fucking fence, and we’re gonna have the cutest damn dog in the neighborhood, and even cuter kids.”
And he was right.
