Experimentation: A Preview

From Chapter 35

(In which we find our heroines… still at Professor Mitchell’s grad party.)


Beca’s Great-Aunt Mary – who is still, somehow, alive – shuffles by them then, leaning heavily on her cane. She pats Beca’s shoulder and then reaches into the front pocket of the garment she’s wearing. It looks like a hand-woven poncho, and out of it, Mary retrieves an envelope. She folds it in half, then stuffs it into one of Beca’s pant pockets. Beca rises up on her tiptoes, eyebrows lifting in sync and the shock of the interaction evident on her face. Chloe stifles a laugh and Great-Aunt Mary flashes Beca a wink, pats her backside, then shuffles off.


They stare at one another for a long moment before bursting out laughing at the exact same time.


“I thought she was dead,” Beca managed to whisper through her laughter, once the older woman is definitely out of earshot, and the confession only makes Chloe laugh harder. She steps forward, lifting one hand to Beca’s shoulder and leaning into the shorter woman as she laughs. Their cheeks pressed together, their bodies close and touching in places. She hears Beca’s laughter trail off, but doesn’t initially think anything of it.


She’s too caught up in the joviality of the moment and the smell of Beca’s shampoo. Her nose has landed in amongst the strands of dark hair and Chloe can’t help but inhale deeply. It’s an automatic reflex. One she doesn’t care if Beca notices.


Her laughter eases into a few, bubbly chuckles before tapering off, and as she pulls away from Beca she sees that stormy blue eyes are fixed on the wall straight ahead of her. Chloe wonders if they’ve been there the whole time, or if maybe she hadn’t just imagined feeling Beca’s gaze on her.

Hey so this is a really, really interesting and neat video that I’m hoping gets around a bit more. It has a lot to say about identity and personas - the person vs the avatar we create for ourselves. As stated in the video, it’s a super relevant topic! And I think it’s something worth watching and might help drive home ideas concerning how to treat people online… Or creators/actors/figure-heads in general.

Bechloe/Sendrick at those times:

  • 8:40 “Kendrick and Brittany will share a room” “But maybe just as friends…”
  • 11:00 Brit on the phone, Rebel: “Are you talking to Kendrick?”
  • 17:50 Rebel to Brit: “Do you have a celebrity crush? Apart from Anna Kendrick?” Brit: “No, that’s it” (confirming it)
