A Caskett 2x14 AU
This is an extreeeemely late birthday fic for our favorite Prompt Overlord, @inkstainedcoffeecup. Although this one isn’t a prompt of yours, I hope you enjoy it anyway, Lou! <3
“I need a date.”
Lanie looks at her as if she has sprouted a second head or started speaking in tongues. Truthfully, she hadn’t quite meant to put it out there just that plainly, but she’s battling the agitated flutter of her heart right now and if she doesn’t do something about it soon, she won’t.
“What?” her friend asks, her eyes narrowing. “Repeat that, because I know I didn’t hear you right.”
“A date. A guy. A man,” Kate says, gaining steam and courage with it. See, she can do it, too. She can get a date with someone attractive and successful, and she doesn’t need to be on some pathetic ‘Most Eligible’ list to do it. She just needs a little help from a friend. And only because Lanie seems to know everyone. “You’re always trying to set me up with people, so here I am. I’m game. What have you got?”
One of her friend’s eyebrows skyrockets. “Okay, what’s gotten into you?”
Ugh, Lanie. Don’t ask that. She doesn’t want to talk about interviews and assumptions, or her infuriating shadow. She just wants her friend to help her out.
“I get so wrapped up in work all I want to do is go home where it’s quiet, and I’m so tired of quiet I want…”
“Castle,” Lanie offers, crossing her arms over her chest, her lips curling in challenge.
