eponine/cosette au ~ wherein cosette is a lonely girl who meets eponine in a marketplace. secret meetings and clandestine kisses follow, one upon another. the pair swear to always be together.
until one day eponine receives word that cosette is to be married to a stranger. devastated, she wanders out into the rain and weeps. her reverie of misery is interrupted by the sound of footsteps…
"a runaway bride. that’s quite a stain on your fine name, madamoiselle."
cosette smiles. “i’ll find a way to get over it, i think.”
