    Summary

    “Isn’t your job to get me drunk, not to sober me up?”

    “My job is to take care of customers,” he replies dryly. “Besides, I’m legally responsible for making sure you don’t get wasted here and go wreak havoc in the streets.”

    --

    Clarke has a bad day, and tells her bartender all about it. She assumes she'll never have to see him again, but you know what they say about assumptions.

    Summary

    Bellamy snorts and sits on the wide arm of the Adirondack chair next to her, bumping her arm with his hip and making her pencil skirt across the almost finished sketch. Ruining it.

    Clarke swears again under her breath.

    “Whoops.” He whistles, grinning like a fool.

    She slams her sketchbook closed and stands. “Take the damn chair if you’re really dying to do nothing right now, Blake. Some of us are trying to be productive.”

    “I just think you need to give someone else a chance on the throne, that’s all.”

    ***

    Clarke and Bellamy attend the same summer camp for the arts as teens. She's pretty sure he hates her as much as she hates him. That doesn't stop her from wanting to kiss him. He's very kissable and no one's ever bothered to kiss her before.

    A kiss turns into something more, only for the whole thing to go up in flames.

    Summary

    “Please don’t go.” His desperate plea shattered her heart. “I don’t- I didn’t have anywhere else to go. Don’t leave me.”
    Clarke sunk back down next to him, cradling his cold face between her hands. This time he didn’t flinch away.

    -

    Bellamy and Clarke have been best friends since kindergarten, inseparable ever since she’d punched the kid who’d made fun of his freckles even though she knew she’d get in trouble for it. Until the first day of middle school, that is, when Bellamy humiliated Clarke in front of their entire class and acted as if they were never friends. It’s their senior year of high school and they're as competitive as ever, their rivalry and animosity infamous at Ark High. But when Bellamy shows up at her door in the middle of the night, face tear-stained and left eye swollen shut, Clarke learns that there may have been more to the end of their friendship than she’d thought.

    Summary

    Bellamy and Clarke are on opposite sides of nearly every spectrum of life.

    Clarke is a military prodigy, born into an elite family and groomed for success in the highest circles. Her intelligence is almost unparalleled. Bellamy is Arkadia’s most wanted criminal, born in a poor district and known by the alias “King”. His family believes he’s dead and it must stay like that for their protection. He’s okay with that until his sister, Octavia, is infected by the Plague, a disease that periodically spreads through the slum districts. When he breaks into the city hospital to steal medicine for her, everything goes gravely wrong.

    Clarke is ordered to find him and so, she infiltrates his home district and poses as one of them, a poor girl. The only problem is, when she meets Bellamy, she has no idea that he's the man she's searching for. Little does she know that she will have a choice to make: choose to be loyal to her country, avenge her family, follow her head and everything she was raised to believe, or follow her heart and choose the boy she has fallen in love with.
