It's been almost thirteen years since she's taken strides without him and she can't – she should quit too, walk away and find bliss on an island, date someone who doesn't remind her of Elliot or the job or a life she had lost because she never said the words when the time was right.

in vino veritas reviews
The late summer breeze is a gentle hum and she relishes in the change of air in Napa, less humid and easier to take in like nothing matters but the grapes and atmosphere. The wine is a pleasant thrum throughout her body, lips moist with remnants of blackberry and chocolate, cedar and cassis.

auld lang syne reviews
Castle smiles, ruffling Ava's hair. She grunts softly but her little hands wrap around his back as if grounding herself to him, staying safe and warm. On the other end of the phone, Kate laughs, but there's something there; longing or regret and his eyes close. "You're not going to be home by midnight, are you?"

inimitable model reviews
"It's been four months, Beckett. Gates finished it faster than you did." "It's not like I've had a lot of time to read, Castle. Not to mention," she turns, a smooth motion that makes her look almost boneless and wraps her legs around his waist. She slides closer, pressing her lips to his ear. "I was having sex with the author. I think you're well versed in how fast I can finish."

Colorblind reviews
He thinks of dark green grass and the blinding of the sun; balmy weather and the promise of spring. The echoing of shots and the way his hands couldn't touch where the bullet landed because then it would be real. The dilated pupils and the way her eyes slipped closed like his do now.

Dance Like Waves reviews
Her feet slide off the raft and into the chilled pool and she breathes, listening to him inside the house; the clattering of dishes as they slide into place in the dishwasher; the music he puts on - Petty or Springsteen - she can't entirely tell with the roar of the ocean in her ears. *Season 5, but no actual spoilers*

"I'm not quite sure I had a say in the process, but Castle has been very good about the research. He's gotten inside of me maybe more times than I'd like, but all in the name of research right?" Rick chokes out a laugh and then one, two, three, the detective's eyes widen.
