Home [Fic] [Phoenix Wright] [Phoenix/Maya]
Maya isn’t quite sure why she’s trying to see him now – seven years since Phoenix vanished from their lives without a warning.
Maybe it’s her fault, maybe it’s Edgeworth’s, maybe… well, she doesn’t know. All she does know is that she’s standing outside his office door because some part of her thought it’d be a good idea.
A minute passes and Maya thinks that maybe he’s not in, that she has time to run away (Act like she’s nineteen again, not twenty-six)
But the door opens and there’s someone that’s distinctly not Phoenix standing in front of her.
“Uh… Is Nick in?”
The kid in the red suit stares at her until she’s scared stiff that she has the wrong office – then she hears him.
“Apollo, who’s at the door?”
Maya grins (and startles Apollo even more) before brushing by him (which makes him yelp and jump away) and into the office yelling at the top of her lungs - “Nick! Nick! Let’s go for burgers!”
He’s there, older and more rugged than she remembers, but he’s still her Nick. Which is all that matters.
“Ma… Maya? Maya!”
She flings herself at him, arms encircling around his neck and laughing. “I’m sorry I didn’t come see you sooner. Maybe a few years earlier but you disappeared and we all thought to give you some time and I was thinking that seven years was enough, really. So let’s go get burgers – Trucy and whoever was at the door can come too and it’ll be almost like old times.”
Phoenix hugs her back and agrees.
She leans against his shoulder, legs hanging over the armrest of the sofa as if she’s the seventeen year old she was when she first met him.
“I hope you don’t mind.”
Maya smiles, letting her fingers entwine with his as she drifts off to sleep.
(She’ll wake to Trucy and Phoenix arguing over breakfast with his grey jacket hanging around her shoulders and she’ll suggest that she make pancakes and then Nick and her will walk Trucy to school and it’ll be different but she’ll think she could get used to it.)
