You better hurry
Catherine: "Looks like you got the deal."
Tia: "Well, they are willing to work together with us, but I'm not quite sure about the contract. Could you please bring it to our legal department?"
Catherine: "Of course."
Catherine takes the contract as suddenly Tia's phone rings.
Catherine: "An important call?"
Tia: "It's from home. Normally Ryan and Ellie never call me at work..."
Catherine: "Maybe Ryan wants you to return home on time and spend some special time with you?"
Tia: "He never asked something like that before..."
Catherine: "Well, I will bring the contract over, you better answer the call or they hang up."
Swim Club: Brother's Always Right (F2M TG, AP)
"But it'll be good for you!"
"No thank you!" said Lucie, and she turned back to her screen.
"Aw, don't be like that, mei-mei," her brother said. "Don't you remember what fun we used to have?"
Mei-mei. That meant 'little sister' in Chinese. It was a word Mike had affectionately called her by ever since she was a baby. Their mom hadn't taught Lucie any Chinese because she wanted her daughter to integrate, so she'd mostly just referred to her brother as 'Micah'.
Despite the eight-year age gap, they always made time for activities together - cooking, watching their favorite TV shows, and even the occasional video game - but it didn't feel right that he was asking Lucie to play a sport with him, as if that was something they'd always done. Sure, Lucie had been to the aquatics center maybe once in the last three years, two times at most.
"C'mon, I was only joking when I said I'd make you play on the water polo team,"
"Good," said Lucie. "Because you know I'm not good at water polo anyway."
The Perfect Girlfriend Quiz (FTM Gender Change)“Ever heard of the Perfect Girlfriend Quiz?” Brienne asked her boyfriend, Grayson as they both casually surfed the internet on their phones as they lounged on the bed together.
“No, what’s that?” Grayson asked, arching his back and stretching his toned shoulders as he leaned over her back to get a look at her screen.
“It’s supposedly the most advanced test for measuring…whether or not you’re a perfect girlfriend, I guess,” said Brienne, as she flipped her lustrous, flowing brunette hair out of her face. “Wanna find out if I’m up to snuff?”
“No, I already know you are,” said Grayson, planting a little kiss on the tip of her delicate chin.
“That tickles,” she cooed as Grayson’s stubble tickled her chin. “I wanna take the quiz,” she said. “It’ll be cute to post the results on Facebook.”
“Ok, sure,” Grayson said with a shrug. It was the start
Welcome to Swim Club (AP + F2M TG, some AR)
"Mom, I can go by myself!" said Sammy.
He got changed as fast as he could, and didn't stop to wait for her by the showers. Instead Sammy went straight to the main pool. Best to get it over with, he thought, and dived head-first into the deep end.
The shock of cold water was unbearable, but he tried to keep himself warm by swimming, with his best attempt at a butterfly stroke, not knowing all the while that he was being watched.
When he got to the other side, he saw the competitive swimmers in the roped-off area of the pool. There was a guy in a swimming cap who looked about his age, swimming lengths and looking serious. He would probably be going to Sammy's new school.
Determined to prove himself the better swimmer, Sammy pushed off the nearest wall and tried to out-swim the other kid. But after two lengths, he was already tired. He noticed his mom watching from the stands. What was she doing that for?
Suddenly conscious that he had an audience, Sammy pushed off the wall again, determi
