Nell Abbot: Thank you! Subject: Saying Thanks Who: Nell Abbot Where: The Bridge Theatre Warnings: underage relationships, NC-17 Open to: Antoine Laurent
Nell had checked the bridge theatres’ bookings every day, asking Harry each day to tell him who was coming to see him, always hoping that there would be the name he was looking for. Antoine. He wanted to tell the man in words how much he’d loved the gift he’d been given and finally there had been his name in the book.
Nell had butterflies in his stomach when he’d gone on stage, hoping to glance out Antoine’s face in the crowded theatre but it had been too dark to see anyone but those in the first two rows. He’d been distracted through most of the play, sleepwalking through the part and it would hardly be regarded as a great performance by those who’d seen it but he doubted they came for great dramatic acting. He’d taken his bows quickly and run back to his room, taking out the little box Harry had given him to keep the beautiful bracelet in.
He unlocked the box, taking out the bracelet and setting it on his wrist. Admiring it, he settled on his bed waiting for Antoine to come and visit him.
