    “come on!” vee huffs, struggling as she yanks at the door handle. “just open! i do not want to call for a tow truck in the middle of the night, or bust the windows and have to pay for that damage, ‘cause camila took her wallet too—”

    “you look like you need some help,” a casual voice sounds from her left, interrupting her; vee jumps a foot in the air, shrieking and pressing up against the car door. she comes face to face with— “woah! it’s just me! masha, remember? from the front desk at the gravesfield historical society?”

    vee feels her cheeks go hot in embarrassment, straightening back up and clearing her throat. “yeah!” she squeaks, avoiding direct eye contact with them. “masha! hi! um, it’s not what it looks like, i’m not breaking into this car, i just… lost my keys?”

    OR, masha offers vee a ride home.

    It wasn’t until Adora collapsed into the backseat of the cab and went to pull out the address that she realized.

    This was not her freaking phone.

    Summary

    “Seriously, Adora. All that money for, like, holding hands in front of a camera? It can’t get easier than that. You endured me for like, ten years? I’m sure you can power through these four weeks.” She gets up and leans on the back of her chair, getting closer to Adora’s face. “Just don’t fuck it up and we’ll be fine.” 

    Adora scowls at her and forces herself to not start another argument. Catra ignores it and turns away. 

    “See ya later, girlfriend.” She says over her shoulder.

    Girlfriend. Adora shudders at that word. 

    Only after Catra is gone Adora remembers they didn’t even plan anything out. She closes her eyes and rubs her temples again, taking another deep breath. Four weeks of pretending to be Catra’s girlfriend. Those are about to be the longest weeks of her life.

    Summary

    “Could I get your number?” they ask, as if they’re not still a completely faceless enigma that’s been making one-sided passes for two weeks now.

    “So I’m supposed to exchange messages with someone who I wouldn’t even be able to pick out of a police lineup if this ends up being just a long con to get me to join a cult?”

    To her shock, they place an elbow on the bar, lean over, and lower the hood.

    “Does this increase my chances?” they ask with a goofy smile.

    They're cute. Like 90s teen drama cute. Like Catra could see them singing fucking annoying pop songs outside her window cute. That’s not good. This person is absolutely trouble.

    “Fuck,” Catra breathes out. It kinda feels like someone just kicked her right in the gut in a thrilling way. “You couldn’t have the decency to make this easier by being ugly?”


    Catra finally meets the woman of her dreams/nightmares. A goofball blonde with big captain save-a-ho energy. She's easy going, gets Catra's jokes, and likes her band, even though it's pretty shitty and Catra's sabotaging them from the inside. It's just a shame that the girl is already competing on a reality show for 20 women's hearts.
