    Summary

    From underneath a slightly scuffed grey sedan protrude a pair of legs Catra thinks she’ll probably be dreaming about for the rest of her life. Before today, she would’ve said there was nothing even remotely sexy about a boiler suit; however, in light of the evidence in front of her, she would like to reconsider her position on this. It’s possible that boiler suits can in fact be distractingly sexy, if the wearer has muscular thighs that put a beautiful strain on both the material, and on Catra’s tenuous grip on her self-control.

    Then the owner of the best pair of legs Catra has ever thirsted over pushes out from underneath the car and Catra forgets how to breathe.

    *

    Catra’s a street racer, part-time bartender, and reluctant therapy-goer. Melog is her long-suffering Toyota, and Adora is the mechanic at Moonstone who ends up working on it. Catra isn’t used to wanting things, let alone getting them.

    Summary

    Except. Adora does swing that way. That extremely specific, Catra-centric way. It's pretty much the only way she's ever swung, as it were, all of her half-hearted relationship attempts since then slipping her through her fingers like sand until she simply stopped trying. There's nobody for her other than Catra, and she'd fucked up her only shot with her. She's come to accept that.

    Except.

    Catra was here, working in her best friend's office, leaning against the wall less than thirty feet away and—

    Oh.

    Oh, shit.

    And looking directly at her.

    Adora agrees to accompany her best friend to an office party and comes face-to-face with her ex not-quite-girlfriend for the first time in eight years. Neither of them are as ready to let go of this as they thought.

    Summary

    Adora is staring out into the distance, looking up at the sun, her eyes wide and guileless. Everything about Adora is guileless. She is as easy to read as a cloudless sky. Of course, they didn’t have cloudless skies, back in the Fright Zone.

    Adora has never faked anything in her life. Catra, a practiced liar, can’t parse exactly how, though they grew up in the same place, Adora became what she is: a hero, even without the sword.

    or: 5 times they held hands after the war.

    Summary

    Catra doesn't hang up. She waits, listens to the sound of her ex-girlfriend's breathing becoming more regular, waits so much longer than she should. "Adora?" She asks quietly. When she gets no response from the sleeping girl, she takes a deep breath and whispers "I love you," before finally disconnecting the call.

    Sometimes if you love someone, you let them go, even when they don't want you to.
