wheel in our groups and keep ending up sitting next to each other on all the
two seated rides.”
had thought spending the day at Six Flags: Magic Mountain with her
roommate Raven would have been a fun way to spend her Saturday off. She and
Raven were finally done finals and it was decided they needed to celebrate.
However, Clarke didn’t know that Raven’s new boyfriend Kyle Wick was also
invited. No matter how hard they attempted to include her, it seemed like she
was the third wheel on a Raven & Wick date - which also served as constant
reminder of how single Clarke was. It was still early, and Clarke was going to
have to deal with them being all lovey-dovey for the rest of the
day. Plus there was the fact that she
had to sit alone or with random strangers on all the rides they’d been on so
far. It just sucked.
of this was helping Clarke’s mood, which had yet to improve in two weeks, ever
since Lexa dumped her right in the middle of finals week. Lexa and Clarke had
been dating for a while and Clarke was really starting to fall for the girl,
when Lexa up and left her, right in the middle of one of the most stressful
weeks of her life. Needless to say, Clarke’s mood had been like a dark rain
cloud ever since - angry and heartbroken.
Griffin, cheer up, that scowl on your face is harshing my mood!” Raven
elbowed her best friend.
glared at Raven, “I would if you guys would stop acting so in love - it’s
just laughed and Wick replied, “Sorry Clarke, can’t help it! Do you know
how long I’ve been trying to get this girl to go out with me?”
smiled, and Clarke rolled her eyes, “If I’d have known this was what I had
to look forward to all day I probably wouldn’t have come, you know.”
okay we’ll tone it down,” Raven answered.
of a sudden, a beautiful brunette girl, that Clarke didn’t recognize,
tackle-hugged Raven, squealing, “Oh my god HI!!! What are you doing here
girl? It’s so awesome we ran into you!!!”
her balance Raven exclaimed, “Octavia! Good to see ya! How’s
everything??” Turning to Clarke, Octavia smiled “Hey I’m Octavia, but
you can call me O!”
smiled back briefly, “I’m Clarke,” she replied. “Nice to meet
you Clarke!” Octavia said and turned back to Raven.
two girls became engrossed in small talk leaving Clarke feeling a little left
out. Glancing around, she noticed two guys walking up to their group. One was
huge, imposing and looked a little dangerous, but he was attractive none the
less, with his closely shaven head, extremely fit body and impressive bone
structure. The other was about the same height, though leaner, but still all
muscle. He had dark hair that seemed curly almost, but was hidden beneath a
black beanie. He had these dark brown eyes and yep those are freckles
smattered across his face, Clarke thought with an internal sigh. She also
noticed a tattoo semi-on display underneath the sleeve of his short sleeve
black t-shirt. Basically, he was jaw-droppingly hot.
they approached the group, the girl named Octavia and Raven finally stopped
chatting enough to make introductions, because apparently Octavia knew these
two beautiful men.
hey guys, come meet my new friends!! Well , you both know Raven, but this is
her boyfriend Kyle Wick and her roommate Clarke Griffin!” Octavia
announced. The huge guy put his arm around Octavia’s shoulders and smiled
fondly at the girl, “Hello everyone, I’m Lincoln, Octavia’s boyfriend.
It’s a pleasure to meet you all.”
at the other guy that Clarke couldn’t help but ogle, he smiled and introduced
himself as well, “Hey, I’m Octavia’s brother, Bellamy Blake. Good to meet
cool, so now that we know each other, why don’t we all go on some rides?”
Which one do we pick first?” Raven asked the group excitedly.
heard Apocalypse was cool! Let’s try it out!” Wick said.
group made their way to the ride, and as they got nearer to the front of the
line Clarke realized she was going to have to sit alone yet again, or sit with
Octavia’s extremely attractive brother, seeing as how both of them were the
third wheels to their friends’ dates. Noticing her apprehension, Bellamy
shuffled over to were Clarke stood, “You doing okay there Princess? You
aren’t afraid of roller coasters, now are you?” he asked in a deep voice.
of course not,” Clarke huffed. (Though she’d never let him know the real
reason for her anxiety.)
‘cause seeing as how we’ll be sitting together for every ride today, I don’t
need you vomiting on my shoes.” Bellamy smirked.
rolled her eyes, “Well you don’t have to worry about that. I love
rides.” She crossed her arms.
So if I dared you to do the Slingshot with me later, you do it?” Bellamy
asked, presenting a challenge.
straight, I would.” Clarke replied, raising an eyebrow.
No one else wants to do it so you’re on.” Bellamy grinned at her.
really tried not to, but she did crack a smile at him in reply.
group spent the entire day doing every single thrill ride in the theme park.
They tackled all the major roller coasters like Full Throttle, Goliath, Gold
Rush, Ninja, Revolution, Viper and Scream. Clarke found herself actually
enjoying Bellamy’s company, even though they were by default paired together
for the day. They laughed a lot and found out that in fact, they both really
like roller coasters. They were both a little bit of adrenaline junkies too.
While the others always sat near the middle or back, Clarke and Bellamy were
always right up front, their hands in the air in all the after-ride
the end of the day, most of them were ready to leave, but Bellamy pulled Clarke
aside, “Hold up Princess, we still haven’t done Slingshot! Have you guys
changed you minds?” Bellamy asked the group.
shook her head. “Uh uh, no way, I’m not doing that Bell. Lincoln and I are done
for the day,” his sister replied.
I’m not up to that, but you can go if you want to Wick.” Raven said.
it’s cool, I’m done too. I’m starving!” Kyle replied.
like it’s just the two of you, you guys are nuts! Have fun!” Octavia exclaimed
with a wave! The four of them walked off to find food, leaving Clarke and
Bellamy at the entrance to Slingshot.
ready Princess?” Bellamy asked her with a half-grin.
let’s do this Blake.” Clarke grinned back at him, her eyes lighting up.
The two of them got in line for the ride and waited anxiously for their turn to
be hurled through the air by mega-sized elastic bands.
Bellamy glanced over at Clarke, who was
grinning ear-to-ear. Though her wavy blonde hair was tangled in knots from all
the rides they’d been on that day, Bellamy couldn’t help but think she was
absolutely radiant. Her piercing blue eyes were lit up with laughter, her pale
skin flushed pink from excitement and the sunlight made her blonde hair shine
like a goddamn halo or something. Clarke glanced back at him then, catching him
staring at her.
for today Bellamy. I know we just met and you didn’t have to spend the day with
me, and god knows I haven’t exactly been the best company lately, but I really
needed this. So, yeah, thanks.” Clarke looked away embarrassed, not
wanting to see his reaction to her honest words.
for what it’s worth I think you’re pretty intriguing Clarke Griffin, and I have
to say it was no hardship spending the day with you. In fact, what do you say
we come back here next weekend - but without the others? Just you and me? We
can redo those insane rides all over again.” Bellamy asked, a hopeful
glint in his eyes.
smiled up at him, “That’s the best idea you’ve had all day Blake.” In
bold move, she leaned in closer, grabbed the front of that black t-shirt of his
in her fist, and pulled him down into a heated kiss.
away from each other, she noticed the last two people had walked off the ride and
it was their turn next. They walked into the ride area, Bellamy’s arm draped
across her shoulders, and made their way to the seats. They took their seats
and got strapped in by the ride attendants. Backing away, the attendants
started the ride. Without a warning the two of them were launched into the air,
free falling through the sky and laughing and screaming at the top of their
that moment, Clarke couldn’t help but feel that this was going to be the
beginning of one long, breathtaking and incredible ride with Bellamy Blake.
