    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.

    Summary

    “Save the lecture, Commander,” says Catra, voice mocking. “Look, I’m tired, Adora. I just spent the last week fucking around in the dirt and the sand, getting my ass kicked while trying to find something you won’t even tell me about.”

    Adora stares at her. She leans back for a moment, staring at Catra. Understanding flashes in her eyes, and Catra suddenly regrets everything she just said.

    “You’re hurt,” Adora says finally, alarm evident in her voice. “What happened?”

    The only thing worse than getting reprimanded by her superior officer is getting lectured by her girlfriend.

    Summary

    Coping with her stressful studies on the way to certification as a physiotherapist, Adora has fallen into a local community theatre as a way to have fun and make new friends. She's made a place for herself there and everything is going great when she lands one of the lead roles of their newest play - until she shows up to the first rehearsal and the person cast in the role of her romantic opposite is Catra, who she hasn't seen since the breakup eight years ago when she left Catra behind to move across the country for a soccer scholarship.

    But there's no denying the obvious chemistry between them when they get on stage, and the director won't hear of anybody else playing the roles.
