bag one

STARBRIGHT PT. 1

“Pack your bags,” Sherlock said casually one night at Angelo’s.

John paused, fork halfway to his mouth. The spaghetti unwound itself from the prongs and fell to the plate with a thick plop! “Pardon?”

“You heard me.”

Rosie was gnawing at her grilled cheese, eyes wide as they flickered between the both. While she had just graduated from needing a booster, she was still short enough that her shoulders only just breached table level. John set the fork down and took a sip of water, mind racing over what could possibly possess Sherlock to want John and Rosie to move out.

“I did, yes, but I think I need a bit more to go off of,” he said carefully.

I love Yong Adult higher school romance books . Do you have some FinnRey High school headcanons ?

What a great prompt!

-Finn’s an art nerd. Working with his hands keeps him centered, grounded, and he loves the feeling of creation. If you can’t find him at any given moment, he’s probably in the art room. (Leia’s the wacky art teacher who adores him.)

-Rey’s the eco kid who always rides her bike to school. She patches her jeans with bright colors, always has a messenger bag over one shoulder, and usually has at least one DIY project sticking out of her bag on any given day.

-Finn and Rey meet after school one day, when they hear an abandoned kitten meowing in a ditch. They rescue the kitten together, and naturally become friends after that.

-They take chemistry together, and in spite of being at the top of their class in all other subjects, they are terrible at chem. Much exploding and shouting ensues.

-Poe’s an upperclassman with a sweet motorcycle, and they both secretly have a crush on him. They giggle about it together whenever he looks their way.

-Rey’s dad Luke is the principle, and he tells terrible jokes during the morning announcements. Rey is Embarrassed, but loves him dearly.

-Finn’s family owns a bookstore, and he and Rey crash there after school. They spend most afternoons procrastinating by looking up lots of random topics they’re interested in studying among piles of old books.

-Their romance blooms slowly, patiently. They become friends first, then best friends, and then one day, the afternoon light hits Finn’s smile just right, and Rey realizes that - oh. She’s been in love with him since the moment she met.

-She shyly asks him to the winter dance, and his whole face lights up when she does. The night of the dance, taking a break outside, they share their first kiss under the stars. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
