After two months crashing with Dylan—though he had continued to insist she was an honored and invited guest and he absolutely could use a roommate, he would be happy to let her pitch in on the rent—Mo finally had her own place.

As it turned out, she didn’t need a job first. All she needed was first and last month’s rent, and despite re-buying her entire wardrobe and treating herself and her friends to nice dinners and drinks two or three times a week, she still had that and more. The payout wasn’t worth the time in Binnington or the time under her uncle Edgar’s thumb (nothing could be), but at least it was making her life livable.

This story was written to [personal profile] aldersprig's prompt, "explosive personalities," and mjkj's prompt, "Wow, my heart did just go boooom." It most directly follows She Has Her Reasons but there's a couple of months between them that may get filled in later.
