    Summary

    It starts at a party on a Friday night, as things in college ordinarily do. She's drunk with a loose grip around a series of bad habits. One of them takes her to bed, and then does it again, and again, and again. They've all seen the movies. Yang should've interpreted them as warning signs.

    I don't want to talk about love, Blake says.

    Well, Yang answers, I don't want to feel it.

    Summary

    She kisses Yang back just as furiously, teeth biting on her bottom lip hard enough to hurt, and when they part her swollen lip is the only thing Blake’s able to comprehend - how pretty Yang looks without her cocky smile, when her mouth is relegated to other things and can’t fucking speak. How pretty she looks when she’s so close Blake can barely see the details, cataloging the sun setting against a lavender sky and the tip of her tongue slipping out to wet her lips. Oh, but that’s later; they’ll deny this, first. It’s just better for business.

    What, Yang says, do I look like I'm made of money?

    Yes, Blake thinks of saying. Yes, you kind of do. Like the world owes you just for living.

    Summary

    “The locals aren’t fans of college kids. This is their neighborhood bar. They can get…territorial.”

    Clarke studies the girl who stopped the fight before it began. Leaning back in her chair in the back of the bar, she's all dark hair and dark eyeliner and dark alcohol. Clarke can see what he’s saying: the glare etched into her face is a clear warning for anyone who might step forward to her.

    But the vodka has thinned Clarke’s blood; she’s always been brazen and right now she can’t take that warning as anything less than a challenge.

    She grabs Octavia’s wrist and pulls her forward. “C’mon.”
