Marco realizing his feelings for Star? (given he already broke up with Jackie)

It doesn’t happen all that quickly.

Marco doesn’t know the difference – or wouldn’t be able to much, with a lack of understanding for what love is beyond childhood infatuation, but he promised his friend he’d figure it out as he stayed by her side in trying times, so he will. Marco remembers it after the frantic argument she had against him staying there at all, after everything he did to get back to her. It had taken him a few days to figure out he actually had scissors to follow after her, brain practically swept of anything logical, instead echoing the last moment they had together. But once he stepped foot inside the castle, unwavering and desperate to talk, she had all but told him he couldn’t be there with her.

It’s dangerous now!” she had claimed, “I can’t just let you get involved in our issues because I want you to be here. I need you to be safe.

He was confused at first, and a bit angry, because she just ran off without explaining practically anything besides her crush on him. But when her mother steps in and explains that his previous captor was back and more powerful than before, his anger vanished and he was left with only determination to support his best friend. And once a call to his parents was made, with exchanges about Marco staying for the remainder of the summer and details from the Butterflys, Star had fiercely told him that they needed to talk, alone.

He could tell she wanted to yell at him as soon as they were away from her parents, scream at him until her throat was scratchy and sore, but she settled on shaky breaths and crossed her arms, shaking her head back and forth to show him how much he could not be here right now.

I wouldn’t have told you I liked you if I knew I was going to see you again,” she said, then paused. “Do you? Feel that way about me, I mean.

I don’t know what I feel…about anything right now, honestly,” he told her, and he took her hands in his to keep her from running away again. It’s the same thing he told Jackie before they settled on taking a break for awhile. “But I know I don’t want you to say goodbye again. So I’m staying. I wouldn’t be able to figure out what I feel for you if I couldn’t.

But Toffee’s –

I don’t care,” He answered immediately. “I’m not leaving you when I can help.”

He knows he told them he could help, but at the moment he doesn’t really know what he can do beyond sit within the walls of the castle and twiddle his thumbs as Queen Butterfly demonstrates a new spell to Star with the wand. It had been a little over a week since he showed up, and that’s pretty much what he’s been doing – staying by her side and supporting her in any possible way he could.

She looks over at him as her mother speaks, a stare that goes from determined and focused to just a bit silly, blue eyes shining with mischief. She tilts her head and smiles at him. “Thank you for being here,” it says.

His heart jumps.
