“I told you what I knew and I watched you prepare. Together, we looked to the stars. You know what we did out there. You’ve heard our stories. But you’re all going to go further and faster than we ever did. You’ll see more than we ever imagined. I don’t know what amazing places, peoples, and parties you’re going to find in the infinite awesome. But I’ll tell you one thing Akkolytes… I can’t wait to find out!”

I am finally 100% caught up on emails, wooo! 

My focus for the rest of the day will be making jewelry and preparing for Friday’s shop update. In just a few I will be making a long post of what you can expect to be in the shop update this week.

“Tomorrow’s the day. It’s been five years.”

“It felt way longer than that.”

Bellamy heard a soft hum of agreement over the radio.

They had been talking for a while now, going over the last preparations for tomorrow, so that the delinquents might make it back to earth alive. For Bellamy that didn’t just mean making it to earth but making it back to Clarke’s side.

He tried to imagine Clarke, on the other side of the line, radio in her hand. He had not seen her in five years. Would there be more lines around her mouth, showing the worries of their months on earth together that finally caught up on her? Would he find new scars on her body if he dared to look close? Would her hair be longer or did she cut it?

“Clarke.” The deep rumble of his voice interrupted their comfortable silence. “We both know that the fuel isn’t enough for us to land safely. And if something happens I need you to know that I - “

“Bellamy. Don’t.”, Clarke’s forceful whisper interrupted him.

“Clarke. Please.” He begged her, heart heavy in his chest, fingers clenching around the radio. He needed her to know. Before it was too late (again).

“No. Not like this.”

Bellamy sucked in a breath. Not like this. “If we don’t make it, not that I’m doubting Raven’s and Monty’s abilities, then I … ”

“You will. Make it. And when you get down - ”

Bellamy heard her breathe in and say, “- tell me.”

His heart jumped in his chest as a shy grin spread across his face and he ducked his head.

“Yeah, okay. See you tomorrow, Clarke Griffin.”

“See you tomorrow, Bellamy Blake.”

He looked at the radio one last time. This was the only connection they had to the earth, to Clarke, for the past five years. It had taken Raven and Monty almost a month to establish a working radio link to Becca’s lab. During that month, they had not known if Clarke survived the second nuclear apocalypse the earth had seen in the last 100 years. And when he heard her voice again, asking if he, if they, made it, he could not hold back the tears.

He was waiting for a loud static to fill the room, signaling that Clarke put the radio back on its station. But it didn’t come.

She did not want to say goodbye to him either.

“You know, I probably won’t be able to sleep tonight.”

“Yeah, me neither.”

“Tell me something?”

“Yeah, sure.”

“I haven’t had a happy life. Bad breaks and…bad choices. A life of almosts and could-haves. Some would call it sad, but I don’t. ‘Cause the two best things in my life…were the person in the very beginning…and the person at the very end. That’s a pretty good thing to be able to say, I think.” - This Is Us, 1x16 “Memphis”
