Clarke has a silent infatuation with a girl on the bus. One day circumstance allows them to meet and somehow Clarke challenges Lexa to some competition involving pick up lines. Inspired by all the amazing Clexa pick up lines on tumblr.
The one where Lexa falls in love with Clarke in less than twenty words, but it's not in the way you're thinking.
“It is the story of her namesake, is it not?”
Clarke sighs. “Yes, but children want to be comforted, coddled, told sweet things…” She’s looking at the child in Lexa’s arms with concern.
“The world is not always sweet, Clarke.”
“You’re right, and no one knows that better than us, but- here, may I have her?” She puts her arms out, a hopeful, expectant expression on her face.
Lexa looks taken aback. This is the first time Clarke has shown any interest in caring for the younger Nightblood children- they always seemed to make her uncomfortable, or nervous. But Lexa hands Clarke the upset little girl, leaning over to transfer her into the strong, soft arms of her lover.
“There we go,” Clarke whispers.
Costia quiets, intrigued by the new face.
“Hello, Costia.” Clarke grins down at the curious eyes, “I’m Clarke.” She looked up at Lexa’s sleepy smile and added, ”I’m in love with Lexa.”
