Tic Tac Toe (Part-10)
Word count: 2000-ish
Pairing: Sam X Reader
Warnings: Slight Angst, tooth-rotting fluff
Summary: The reader shifts into a new city after being offered a dream job by a big firm. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect after an ugly break-up with a douche-bag Ex. But things turn out not as dreamy as she’d want them to be and the only thing that keeps her smiling is a totally coincidental game of Tic Tac Toe.
A/N: I suck (We’ve already established that fact loads of times) so I used the old summary this time. This part picks up almost directly from where we left off last time. I hope y’all like it! Feedback is really appreciated!

Even if the sight hadn’t registered, the blistering heat would have. It was like everything had been engulfed in the fire, from the entire front façade of his house, to the little shrubbery that she had planted along the porch steps. Sam loved messing with them just to tease her. She loved those plants, and he loved her. Which was why the scene unfolding before him, getting worse with every passing second, felt like one that was out of reality. Like a horror story pulled straight out of his personal hell. He knew with the amount of force he was exerting, he would have pushed over just about anybody. But there were too many hands holding him back, too many voices whispering condolences, urging him to listen to them, urging him to believe that there was nothing left to save… That there was no one left to rescue.
