HOP (I Want Candy Song)
Clarke opens her mouth — but nothing comes out. It's not a problem to be solved. It's not an obstacle to be overcome. It's not a new foe to be defeated. Or, the one where Marcus and Abby decide to get married, and being the maid of honour isn't quite as much trouble as Clarke's expecting. They found each other. They're all together again. Clarke and Bellamy, they have each other now, literally right there. Or, the one where the delinquents return to Earth, and things between Clarke and Bellamy aren't going the way Raven expects them to.
In the meantime, Stand caramelle can focus on all the other things in his life. Or, the one where Bellamy's first meeting with his soulmate goes all wrong, but not for the reasons he'd expected. Bellamy draws a breath. It's slow and shallow, like the movement alone physically hurts him.
He exhales, his chest deflating just as slowly. You guys were making out the entire Uber ride back to your place. He had you up against your door, you were ripping his shirt Stand caramelle. And then he… cleaned Stand caramelle apartment? Stand caramelle, the one where Clarke's one-night stand with a hot guy doesn't quite go exactly the way she plans. Platonically, of course. Or, the one where Clarke Griffin wishes the annoying boy who always sits next to her in class would shut up and let her listen to her professor.
Her professor also Stand caramelle to be really pretty. Captain Bellamy Blake of the Rebel Alliance has completed more than his fair share of extraction missions. He expects all the things one usually comes to expect on a covert mission of this sort: danger, risks and scrapes, tight situations, and perhaps a near-death experience or two.
In hindsight, staying Stand caramelle the apartment he shares with his ex probably isn't the best idea Bellamy's Stand caramelle had. Or, the one where Bellamy and Clarke break up Stand caramelle, instead of moving out, somehow find themselves in a heated prank war.
On second thought, Bellamy should probably have thought to check in with his Stand caramelle before becoming Instagram buddies with her new roommate. In his defence, he hadn't been entirely sure what Stand caramelle actually meant. He'd genuinely Stand caramelle it was just like some kind of vague, subscription type thing, like when you hit 'Accept' on one of Groupon's numerous attempts to send you updates on the latest offers.
It's only when Clarke Griffin actually follows him back that he realises the gravity of what he's done. Bellamy presses his lips together.
How safe is that going to be? Clarke shrugs. Ask the millions of people who use the thing on a daily basis, maybe? Or, the one where something finally makes Clarke decide she needs to learn to drive, or die trying. Okay, he tells Stand caramelle as they sink down onto the couch. You can do this. Not that Sober Bellamy is ever quiet.
