    Summary

    She isn’t even sure why she’s considering this. She’s met Lexa once, at the hospital - Lexa invited her out for a drink. Maybe Lexa just wants to hook up.

    That thought stirs something in the pit of her stomach that reverberates through her body. Lexa was…stunning and intense and now Clarke remembers those leather pants.

    Who says they have to date or be anything serious? Why can’t Clarke just have a little fun? God knows she’s earned it.

    or

    Clarke has no time to date and Lexa doesn't want a relationship. So why not give into temptation a little? No romance, no attachment, just fun. How hard can it be?

    Summary

    But Costia wraps her arms back around Clarke and the blonde just lies down her head on her chest.

    “Don’t fall asleep again.” Lexa laughs briefly, before leaning down to press a kiss to Costia’s lips and one to Clarke’s forehead.

    The blonde can’t help but think she would’ve loved to get a kiss to her lips, too.

    OR

    The one where Clarke loves them both, but they are married. To each other.

    Summary

    Sometimes, Lexa feels like she was born into this world already fighting. Her hands balled into fists, her jawline clenched, her body tense and on guard, ready. Sometimes, she felt like the bubbling well of fury that simmered underneath her skin was the only thing that sustained her, kept her alive, and that if she paused – took stock, took a breath and let it seep out of her, she would crumple.

    Sometimes, fighting isn't enough.

    ---

    or

    Lexa is an outsider, all dark leather and sharp cheekbones, smoking cigarettes behind the gym...

    and Clarke Griffin can't keep her eyes off her.

    Summary

    “I like a lot of people Lexa.” Clarke said, lifting her eyes. She felt exhausted, her limbs felt lifeless, heavy. “I really like you.” She curled her fingers into Lexa’s, meeting her gaze which was unfathomable. “But I don’t want to forget who I am.”

    Lexa’s eyes darkened. She felt her grip slacken and pull away. For a split second, Clarke saw her resolve melt away, which was quickly replaced by a neutral expression, her jawline hardened.

    “I understand, Clarke. We want different things. We’re different people.”
