The Christmas Conundrum - A Reylo holiday au
After getting fired from her job right before the holidays, Rey is accidentally mistaken for an abandoned baby’s mother and is forced to take care of him. Ben Solo is the boss guilted into giving Rey her job back. Confusion, chicanery, and romance ensue.
Inspired by the films ‘Bachelor Mother’ and ‘Bundle of Joy’
In a split second Rey watched Ben go from hungry to terrified. His eyes darted around behind her until they locked on whoever was walking toward them.
“Hi, mom.” He said weakly.
Mom? Rey nearly threw her punch cup on the nearest table, desperate to put it down and somehow present herself as not tipsy to her boss’ boss and fucking mother. When she turned, Rey saw a short woman in a tasteful ocean blue evening gown, brown hair streaked with grey and styled in an intricate braided bun, hauling Ben down into a hug. It was so comical to see the huge man shoved around by such a tiny woman that Rey - less than sober as she was - giggled again. Which she immediately regret because it drew Leia Organa’s attention and Rey found herself under the scrutiny of warm brown eyes that were nearly identical to Ben’s.
“Are you going to introduce me to your date, Benjamin?”
