    Summary

    “Mmhm.” She was suspicious, which was fair, Adora thought. It probably all seemed sketchy. “And what would you get out of this?”

    “Your company.” Catra raised an eyebrow. “I’m serious. I live a very… isolated life. It’s hard to make friends when you’re running one of the biggest companies in the country.”

    Catra opened and closed her mouth a few times, clearly stunned. Adora had to smirk a little, proud of herself for that reaction. “Here.” She pulled out her wallet, counting out a few hundred dollar bills. Three went on the table for the meal, and for the waitress, and two went to Catra, along with a business card. “Think about it. Call me if you’re interested.”

    “And if I’m not?”

    Adora shrugged, standing. “Then you just got a free meal to listen to me talk. Not a bad trade off, right?”

    She didn’t want to be too smug, but she was pretty sure she had Catra’s attention as she walked away.

    Summary

    Bow and Glimmer convince all their friends to go with them on their honeymoon to a couple's resort - but after Adora's already paid the non-refundable deposit, her longterm girlfriend dumps her, leaving her in a bind. The friend group scrambles to find a replacement "girlfriend" so that Adora doesn't have to lose her deposit and miss out on the week of fun in the sun with her friends that she was promised - which she obviously needs now, more than ever, on the heels of her breakup - and Scorpia finds a friend of hers willing to pretend to be Adora's girlfriend so that she can get a half price vacation, even if it means sharing a room with only one bed. The only problem? This friend of Scorpia's is absolutely gorgeous... and a complete and total asshole. But they have to keep up the act, or ruin the whole trip.

    Summary

    “Aren’t you two—”

    “If you’re done talking about Adora and Catra getting married,” says Entrapta, with all the subtlety and tact of a sledgehammer, “I have calculated the voltage needed…”

    Wherever the rest of Entrapta’s sentence is going to go, it falls away. The whole room falls away as understanding hits Catra like a bolt of lightning, an electrifying shock to her system that leaves her reeling. Getting married? Her and Adora? Questions well up on her tongue — What? Why? — and she doesn’t realize she has fumbled through those fragmented inquiries until Frosta answers her.

    “Um. You’re wearing Adora’s pin.”

    Summary

    “You’re going to owe me a drink,” Catra says. Her movements are awkward as she repositions the baby — but she’s so gentle. She has retracted her claws, but she still gingerly cups the back of the baby’s head as if scared she might somehow harm him. “Where did you even get this?”

    Adora takes another drink. “The mom just, like, handed him to me and ran off.”

    “Weird,” Catra says, and then — as if on instinct — she starts doing this weird bouncing thing, the baby’s soft, peach-fuzz still head cupped in her hand. “Who does that?”

    Adora nods, agreeing vehemently. “Right?”

    “If I had a baby I wouldn’t just hand it to some stranger,” says Catra with a roll of her eyes.

    It's such a simple sentiment, yet it makes Adora's world spin.
