You Belong With Me (Modern Clexa AU)

Clarke and Lexa have been best friends since the first day of school. Lexa knows love is weakness but she is hopelessly in love with Clarke. Clarke is oblivious, happily dating other people. 

I lay on Clarke’s bed, propped up by several pillows, pretending to be engrossed in my worn copy of Carmilla. But I was distracted, by Clarke. She had her head resting on my lap and her feet hanging over the side of the bed. She was talking on her phone, I was running my fingers through her soft, golden hair. I told myself that it was a perfectly normal thing for best friends to do, after all it was a typical Tuesday night for us. What wasn’t normal was how I had to consciously stop my gaze from falling to her lips or the bare skin of her shoulder revealed by her baggy top. Yeah definitely not normal. I cursed myself for the inappropriate thoughts that regularly plagued my mind. I had tried to deny it for years but the truth was what I felt for her was anything but friendly, somewhere along the line I had fallen completely in love with her. But to Clarke I was just her best friend. I was the girl she shared her lunch with on the first day of preschool and everyday since. She didn’t see me that way.

Chapter 1

Since hearing Taylor perform Better Man, I can’t stop thinking about it and imagining the writing process. I just wanted to say @taylorswift I am so proud of you for getting into that relationship and allowing yourself to feel that happiness. But I’m actually more proud of you for being brave enough to put yourself first. The bravest thing you ever did was run.

Taylor I’m really sorry that you had to go through all the things that you did especially when you loved so fearlessly. Just know that whilst you might be worried about endings and protecting yourself, if you feel a spark like that again, we’ll be right here for you to talk to and to cheer you on.

Watch on
