the sun was setting and Leila had already made her way home. Emery stuck around just as Luna had asked of her earlier. they face each other at the edge of the street, standing by the town view.
“don’t fret, Em. you look like a nervous wreck right now,” Luna laughs. Emery plays it off and tries her best to form a smile across her face. “it’s not like i’m leaving for good. i’m just going back to school, you know?” Emery nods.
“of course. and i’m so happy for you! i really am. it’s just, i don’t know! i’m just gonna miss you.” Emery looks down at the ground while Luna smiles at her sweetly, thinking how pure of a gem Emery is, and how she too will miss her just as much. she’s done a lot for her, in the short time they’ve known each other, and Luna will never, ever forget that.
“hey, this isn’t a goodbye, you know that, right? i mean, well. i guess it is, but not entirely. i just wanted to tell you that i’m always a phone call away. heck, if you want me to drive down to Windenburg for you, i will. and of course i’ll be at the shop time from time to check on it when i can. you’ve become a great friend to me, Em. there are not enough words to describe how thankful i am that you pranced into my life like this, and i intend to keep you around. so smile! we’ll be in touch, okay?”
Luna leans in for a hug, and they embrace each other tightly. Emery exhales softly and smiles to herself, feeling just as thankful for Luna.
sometimes people come into our lives when we least expect it. oftentimes, it’s during the times we need someone the most. that is what these two had done for each other. with Luna on the whim of losing just about everything to Emery feeling lost and alone, needing some guidance. their presence reminded them both that no matter what, they’ll be okay.
crack au where TFC stands for “The Food Court” and basically all the Foxes work at or nearby a food court in a shopping mall. (@recklessopinions this is your fault)
I mean, imagine Allison being the owner of a small boutique. Her clothes, while few, are practically designer in quality. Her store is partially responsible for a lot of the traffic of the mall
Andrew works as a cook for one of the fast food vendors. (idk, burgers?) With Roland as cashier, their vendor is definitely the most popular and is always flooded with customers
Renee works at a boba/milk tea dessert shop. She lets Andrew have free pastries at the end of the day if there are any left
Neil is the super shady guy who is always hanging around the food court looking hungry. His super unsubtle behavior catches Andrew’s eyes. The fuck does he think he’s doing??
Kevin Day, an up and coming athlete, is grumpily forced into a summer job by Wymack working at a healthy smoothie and juice shop. Seth is his coworker and they’re always getting into loud fights that disturbs everyone in the whole damn court
Whenever Allison comes up for a drink, Seth awkwardly tries to strike up a convo. Kevin notices and make it his duty to embarrass him in front of the infamous Allison Reynolds.
Matt and Dan are co-managers for a Japanese sushi restaurant nearby
Matt and Dan notices Neil’s wandering around and they start to feed him daily scrapes in the name of “free samples.” Neil thinks they don’t notice he’s the same person, but in reality they just feel sorry for him
Riko periodically and dramatically shows up to Kevin’s workplace to taunt him. (think Mean Girls: Food Court edition)
Somehow, it’s Riko’s fault that The Food Court War happens
I was originally going to say the Braves’ WS winning game, but this one has always been more memorable to me. I actually didn’t get to see the end of this game live because it was a school night and my mother (a 3rd grade teacher btw) insisted that no matter how important the game, we kids had to be in bed on time. So I didn’t know we won until the next day, watching the news over breakfast.
I watched the replays over and over and over the following days. We were all so freaking excited. It was a great time to be a Braves fan.
Imagine if before they started going out, Carlos’s team of scientists were adamant that Cecil went on about him on the radio and Carlos, face red with embarrassment, argues that he didn’t do it that much, and thus the NV Radio drinking game was created- take a shot whenever Carlos, Carlos’s hair, Carlos’s apparent perfection was mentioned on the show or Cecil sounded hopelessly lovestruck. Safe to say, they all had VERY bad hangovers that weekend.
