when Dolls comes to her, stony-faced and somber, something about that gets to her because he looks nervous. She’s never seen that. Uncertain? Sure. Worried? Totally. Never hand-wringingly anxious.
Heart hammering hard in her ears, she barely hears him ask her to come to his office.
As soon as she closes the door, he whirls around before she has a chance to ask how they’re all gonna die and says in a rush, “I need you to come to Arizona and be my girlfriend for a few days.”
I will never get tired of fake dating fics, and this one’s just plain lovely.
