A Proposal by Any Other Name, Chapter 31: Night Out
READ CHAPTER 31 HERE (On AO3)
Chapter summary: Rey finally comes to terms with a few realizations.
Ben or Kylo?
Rey wonders if she’d made a mistake by bringing this up, but it had been the first thing to come to mind after the hilarious events of the last five minutes. Well, the second thing to come to mind.
The first had been how oddly happy she’d been, her brain zeroing in on the sudden waves of relief she hadn’t expect to feel when he’d told her the ring wasn’t for Katherine. The panic that had quickly followed had been all but forgotten the second he’d explained the reasons for why he was about to give her a diamond ring while standing in the ruins of a castle like a prince from a long forgotten fairy tale. But that’s beside the point.
Kylo — Ben? At least that’s what Maz insists on calling him — immediately tenses in front of her, all of his good-natured humor melting off his face.
“Where did you hear that name? Wait, don’t tell me,” he says, answering himself. “Maz.”
