Title: Contractual Obligation
Pairing: Lydia Deetz/Betelgeuse
Rating: Mature [R]
Word Count: 39,949
Summary: In the Spring of 1997, Lydia goes back home to Winter River for a reprieve from city life. What she expects is lots of gingham, quiet mornings, lazy afternoons, and watching bad paranormal investigation shows with Barbara at three A.M. while they take bets about how long it’ll take Delia to wake up after taking so many pills. What she gets is an important life-lesson: Bureaucracy’s a massive pain in the ass.
Recommendation: Remember to always ALWAYS read the fine print or be like Betelgeuse who is returned to Winter River as Ella Enchanted. Though I suppose if he was going to have to obey someone Lydia was the best option.
