Warnings: angst, loneliness, anger, physical rage, crying, cursing, fluff, smut, squirting (holy shit, this ran away from me). Seriously, if smut isn’t your cup of tea, do not read this.

A/N: This got super angsty before it got good. Sorry about that! Also this is not a drabble. It got away from me so much.

Your hair was perfect, your makeup was perfect, your dress was perfect. You thought Sam was perfect. Pulling the tickets to your favorite show from the zipper in your purse, you sighed and tears filled your eyes. You called Sam twice before now, so you dialed his number a third time. Still no answer.

Slamming your phone onto the vanity, you ripped the bobby pins from your hair, letting the natural waves fall around your shoulders. You threw your purse at the closet door, not caring if anything inside it broke. You audibly sobbed as you crashed into the bed, face down on the pillow.

“Fuck this.” You cried, letting the sadness consume you.

This night was supposed to be special, one you and Sam always shared together. It was the anniversary of the day Sam saved your life, specifically the fifth anniversary this year. The anniversary of the day you met the love of your life, the day you met the man you wanted to marry.

ugh. LOVE. the juxtaposition of the super-sparkly golden sequins next to the airy, feminine tulle skirt is a look i can get behind. this bridal gown choice would fit many styles of weddings with its classic cut yet nontraditional fabrics.

May.

Home.

She thought of the shiny, black gown  hanging in the closet of her apartment, the tasseled cap tucked on the shelf above it, untouched. A small duffel bag rolled around the back of her father’s car, sliding back and forth, a soft thump coming from behind her every time they took a sharp turn.

He hadn’t turned the radio on when she got in the car and she hadn’t tried to fill the silence. They let the air be filled with every thump of the bag, and the wind howling from outside the windows.

She’d had to skip the ceremony.

Not that it mattered. Because it didn’t. Not with the memory of her mother’s voice over the phone when she called to tell her what happened, hanging in the air.

“There’s been an accident,” she’d said. Her mother’s voice had never sounded so thin. Strong, Catelyn Stark never wavered. “Your brother, Robb, he’s…”

His car was totaled. He’d been on his way to see his girlfriend. A car had come out of nowhere, smashed into the driver’s side door, and he hadn’t made it through the night at the hospital.

So it didn’t matter that the gown was hanging up in her closet, unused, something for her to throw away when she got back. It didn’t matter that she hadn’t had time to figure out who she was supposed to tell, that they would call her name and she just wouldn’t be there to walk across the stage. It didn’t matter that it was going to be a nightmare of phone calls later to sort it all out.

Robb was gone and none of it mattered.
