“No wonder you’re majoring in arts. You have such long fingers. I bet they aren’t as long as mine.” The day Bellamy had captured her hand and stroked her fingers, spreading her palm open, Clarke’s heart had fluttered like an unrestrained butterfly and she couldn’t swallow. They were having lunch. Her throat was so dry, she had to cough a couple of times before she could say anything.

“What do my fingers have to do with the arts?” Clarke fought a shiver as his fingers circled her wrist, his thumb pressed against her pulse.

They had only known each other for two months. Clarke was the resident’s assistant of his sister’s dorm and he was the overprotective brother who wouldn’t allow her to do her job. He entered her room at unannounced moments, often scaring her senseless, demanding that she pay attention to Octavia and watch her like a hawk.

A month in, Octavia had been caught with alcohol in her purse and a boy in her room after hours, breaking the rules of Ark House. Of course, Clarke had notified Bellamy and from that day on, the two of them worked together to keep Octavia out of trouble—which was tough, seeing as she loved breaking rules, especially when it involved alcohol, curfew and boys.

“Long fingers means a good artist.” He was nonchalant as he held up her hand and then pressed his palm to hers. At the contact, all she could think about were how rough his hands were in contrast to her smooth palms, how the callouses on his fingers from fixing cars over the summer scrapped against her skin. And then, all she could think about was those hands on her naked skin.

Suddenly, he startled her by exclaiming, “Hah! Your hand is smaller! I win! You’ve gotta go get me a soda now.”

As a woman with writerly delusions, I took it personally. It validated so many secret worries, the worries above and beyond “is my writing any good.” Is anyone gonna care? Should I just keep trying to figure out what I want to do, even if nobody will ever pay me? Am I being a bitch for writing about this? Does this matter?Am I pretty enough for people to like me, or too pretty to be taken seriously? If I ever create anything noteworthy, will people spend the next century and a half critiquing my looks and my sex life, pelting me with insults for trying too hard to be one of the boys? If one of the most famous female novelists of our time is still critiqued for her looks and sex life, what the hell can I expect? And Wharton was straight! I’m not! It’s entirely hopeless! Why even bother?
