┕ bellarke week: day 4. unappreciated moment ┉ before the hug in 3.13 Join or Die
Bellamy lashes out. Takes all his anger and sadness on her. He tries to push her away. Clarke could just walk away and leave him alone just like she did in 2.16, but instead she stays there, standing right next to him. Because she knows he doesn’t mean it. She knows that he is hurt, angry and sad. And she understands his pain and most important of all: now she knows how much he needs her. She won’t leave again. So she just stays in silence next to him, just being there for him. And in matter of seconds he opens up to her. Because he needs her. Because all he wanted was her to stay. Because she’s the only one who can say something to comfort him and give him strength to carry on. Despite his attempt to push her away, Clarke doesn’t leave this time. She stays. And that, my friends, it’s a silent way to say i’m sorry, a silent way to say i’m here for you now. In this silent moment (before Clarke says the only way they’re gonna get through this is together, before the hug) they acknowledge that they need each other.
