#Emma Approved #the linger #like she touched him#and then she can’t remove her hand the way she meant to all cool and detatched#and then his holy crap glance with raised eye brows #did that just happen? #yes#Alex #it did #and that poor bastard is going to be haunted by the dress#and the way his eyes flutter shut when she touches him#he does a very good job of not staring inappropriately#but he seems to be asking her frequently if she’s got a clue about what’s going on#but she never does #no she wasn’t checking out his ass#no she’s only interested in Elton as a client#no she’ll never date anyone if it means settling#and apparently dating at all would mean settling #until… #oh God.#Frank Churchill #if you will pardon me #I need to heave my carcass onto the floor#and weep for Alex’s manpain #and Emma’s heartbreak #that she causes herself#and like she already is#except she can’t put her finger on what’s making her wistful and unhappy#I hate everything
