“She thought of blonde hair, and a squinty-eyed laugh. She thought of Adora’s worried face when Catra stepped out of the principal’s office. She thought of Weaver’s warning. It felt less like a threat and more like a joke. Because really, how could she stay away?
‘I want to learn how to ride a bike.’”
They meet in the principal’s office, because sometimes accidents aren’t really accidents at all. It’s hard to care about detention when Adora’s taking her hand and making her laugh. That’s just how these things go.
As far as first dates go, theirs had gone pretty well. (Barring all of the bargaining for the souls of innocent townspeople and rogue umbrastaff hijinks, of course.) Their second date had gone well too, even if Taako was pretty convinced orchestras were for nerds. (He still thinks they’re for nerds, even if the way Kravitz’ face lights up when he talks about them is unfairly cute.)
A third date is the logical conclusion, so they settle on a time and place before parting ways. However, when Kravitz makes his way over to pick up Taako, he finds him in pajamas, watching movies with the Bureau of Balance’s youngest member and resident detective. Instead of rescheduling, Taako invites him inside. It wasn’t how he planned to spend his night, but eating far too much chocolate-covered popcorn in the company of a charming elf wizard and the moon’s littlest detective isn’t the worst thing Kravitz could think of.
