Prompt: Sarah and Lily are filming “Coven” and Sarah just can’t keep her feelings inside anymore, so she uses a scene as an excuse to kiss Lily.
“Cut!” The director screamed as Lily stopped spinning to a Stevie Nicks’ song.
“Gosh, I love playing Misty!” The blonde smiled as she approached Sarah, who was dressed as Cordelia watching her at the backstage.
“It seems like a lot of fun!” Sarah returned the smile
“It is! But I must confess I miss having you as a scene partner… We don’t have many scenes together”
“I miss it too, lovepants” A bigger smile formed at the elder woman’s face
“Lily, we have to take another shoot” The director approached both girls
“Sure!” The blonde said excitedly as she walked away.
Sarah watched as Lily went back to the scenario, she was so excited and it made Sarah´s heart melt; The younger woman has always had this instantly happy effect over her, just having her around was enough to make Sarah smile and forget about whatever was bothering her; Except for one thing: What she actually felt towards the blonde.
Lily had to take a few more shoots of the same spinning scene, and Sarah watched them all with a silly smile, yet she felt scared; A lot of thoughts started coming to her mind, thoughts she’d usually ignore but for some reason they were stronger that day… maybe it was because she was sharing a dressing room with the friend for already a week, spending 24 hours together and she wasn’t strong enough to fight her heart anymore; She knew it’d eventually happen, but she was determined to hold it on for as long as she could; Her best friend was straight and, even if she wasn’t, what they had was just friendship, they saw each other as sisters and it was a hundred percent impossible for the younger woman to feel the same.
Sarah was immersed on her thoughts when a screaming, excited Lily came smiling;
“Saraaaah! The director said it’s time for us to film our garden scene!”
“Yeah… is it a problem?”
“No! No, not at all”
Sarah followed Lily to the garden with a burning feeling on her stomach; She could barely walk properly since she felt her whole body shivering. She had been waiting for this scene to happen for so long, she rehearsed and rehearsed it on the mirror so many times just to make sure she’d do it perfectly.
When the director screamed “Action” both started doing it as planned; Cordelia was teaching Misty how to grow the plants and use it’s spells.
Sarah felt her heart melt; Misty portrayed Lily’s personality so well, it was like actually doing these things with Lily, not Misty; As the scene went trough the elder woman got more and more carried away with her friend’s smile, she was in a mental place where she had completely forgotten about everything around her; That moment was just her and the long time lover.
Misty got a spell right and went in for a high-five, Lily got a bit shocked when Cordelia,or was it Sarah? Put her abruptly closer, but she kept into her character; Lily knew Sarah liked to add some personal stuff into the roles, they had talked about this a million times before, but this time it was… it was different, she knew it wasn’t Cordelia, but Sarah making the move.
“We make a great team” Cordelia smiled, holding Misty’s hands impossible tighter
Lily tried to pull back since she knew it was the end of the scene, but when she opened her eyes again after a single blink, she felt her lips pressed at Sarah’s; The elder woman was so sweet and so gentle, the blonde felt sparkles in her tummy; She waited for this moment for so long, her mind was fully black and she couldn’t think about anything.
“Cut! Cut!” The director screamed, forcing them to pull apart “Sarah? What the fuck?”
“I, I thought it was a good idea since Cordelia has done so many things to save Misty, maybe if we turned it into an explicit romance it mi-might work? I mean, they…”
“It’s okay” The director cut the woman “I don’t know if we’re going to use it, but next time just show your ideas before changing the role in such a different way”
“Y-yes, I’m sorry”
“You can go, lunch time”
Sarah fitted Lily who had a frighten look in her face, she knew the friend wasn’t understanding anything, to be honest, neither was she; Everything the elder woman could do was run, run as fast as she could to the bathroom while she fought against her tears; When she got there she went straight to a cabinet and locked herself in, feeling her legs weaker and weaker, she just sat on the floor and covered her face with her hands in order to stop the loud crying noise she was making.
Lily was following Sarah when Taissa stopped her, grabbing the blonde by the arm;
“Hey, is everything okay?” The girl had a concerned look in her face
“Yes, yes… why?”
“I just saw Sarah running and it seemed like she was crying…I know you’re both really close so I thought maybe you knew something? Or if I could help or anything?”
“Oh, yeah… she just got, got emotional with a scene, you know… I’m gonna go talk to her”
Lily gave Taissa a quick smile and went running to the bathroom, she knew Sarah would most likely be there; As the blonde entered the bathroom she could hear a really low noise… It broke her heart when she realized it was her friend crying.
“Lovepants” Lily said as she searched for the cabinet Sarah was in “C’mon, let’s talk…”
“No Lily… just go away” The elder woman sobbed
“I’m not going anywhere until you talk to me” The blonde found the cabinet and sat at the floor while facing it’s door
“Its lu-lunch time, you’ll get hungry”
“I don’t care, you know I’m never leaving you crying like that… It was just a scene, I know you like to add stuff and I thought it was a brilliant idea”
It hurt for Lily to say that, she wish it hasn’t been just a scene, but a thing between Sarah and Lily, not Misty and Cordelia; Although, if felt impossible to her to admit that, and for more hurt she was, she couldn’t let her friend crying like that, she had to be strong and pretend it was all fine.
“Lily, I…” Sarah felt her tears getting stronger, she tried to speak but the tears just wouldn’t let her
“Sarah open it now, I’m begging you” Lily got desperate as the noise of her best friend’s crying was getting stronger and stronger “Sarah please, I’m getting scared” The blonde felt her tears falling down, she no longer could pretend it was all fine anymore.
Sarah finally opened the door and Lily came running straight to her, giving the woman the most loving hug she’d always received.
“Wha-what’s going on? Why did you kiss me?” Lily was still on her friend’s arms
“I told you… It was just the scene” She sobbed
“So why are you crying like that?” The younger woman pulled apart and looked into Sarah’s teary eyes
“Because I thought I had, um, just messed up the shoot and then I saw you getting so frightened and I was scared of loosing your friendship…”
“Is it all?”
“What? Yes, why would I lie about that?”
“Because, you know… if it was something more I wouldn’t be sad… or scared in any way”
Lily didn’t know where it came from and in the moment she said it, she regretted it, but it had already been said and now her throat was burning, legs were weak and all she could do was wait for the answer.
“Lily” Sarah’s eyes opened wilder “Wha-what do you mean?”
The blond stared at Sarah and took a long breath, the elder woman was opening her mouth to say something when she was cut by Lily’s lips pressing hers; They both had so much love in the kiss, none of them felt it before. Pure love.
Both pulled apart just when they got out of air; Their breath was hard and they didn’t stop looking at each others’ eyes for a single second.
“Now I get what you meant” Sarah giggled “I meant it too when I kissed you before… Cordelia couldn’t love Misty as much as I love you”
An enormous smile appeared on Lily’s lips and she just couldn’t help but kiss her long time secret lover again.
