Professional Cuddling AU- Chapter 2
(previous chapters on ao3)
Stepping off the plane without someone to greet him was probably the strangest Kent had ever felt landing in Providence. He didn’t spend a lot of time there—if he was East Coast bound it was usually to see what little family he got along with in New York, but he’d visited Jack and Bitty enough over the last year for the place to be a little more than just a random hotel, and the arena for the occasional game against the Falconers.
Now, though, the soft winter air felt almost too hot, too oppressive. He was being plagued with self-doubt. He was being plagued with fear, and the feeling that he was so fucking pathetic, he had to pay a guy to cuddle him. Like…who even did that, really? He asked himself that about two dozen times on the plane ride over because shit, this was just…weird. Right? It was weird.
