in his heart of hearts (epilogue)
Thank you so much to everyone who encouraged a part II- your words meant a lot to me. And a massive thanks to @missemarissa, for your invaluable insight and continuous support.
Read Part I
“We’re back, bitches!”
Octavia is the first person to touch the ground, but Bellamy and Clarke are close behind. They spill out of the dropship like uncaged animals, cheering and screaming and taking in everything that is Earth.
Clarke takes slow, tentative steps forward, closing her eyes and tilting her head back towards the sun. She lifts her arms and twirls in a slow circle, basking in its warm rays. The light reflects off her hair and for a second Bellamy thinks he’s looking at an angel.
It’s all too much for him, really, so he just gathers her in his arms and kisses her hard. She tastes like joy, and joy tastes better on Earth. [AO3]
