CSJJ Day 16: stay cool, it’s just a kiss
high school reunions suck when you live in a small town. unless your old crush comes strolling back into town, along with those feelings you thought disappeared years ago.
my @csjanuaryjoy piece of the day. special thanks to @thereqinamills, @ive-always-been-a-pirate, and @hook-come-back-to-me for being my sounding boards while i went back and forth on the nature of this piece. or alternately, angst? what angst? but i found some! so here, have some fluff, as well.
also on ao3!
The first thing Emma notices as she trails closely behind David and Mary Margaret into the rented out town hall, are the familiar faces that decided to attend their reunion.
Granted, it’s not hard for the faces to all seem familiar to her, considering their little town in the middle of nowhere, Maine had the smallest senior class she’d seen in all her years in the foster system.
The second thing Emma notices as she glues herself to David and Mary Margaret’s side in the town hall without that big of an open bar are the familiar sets of eyes staring back at her.
She gets it, she does. She’s a sight to stare at, being the girl who disappeared before graduation and came back years later with a sealed juvenile record, a baby, and a bright yellow bug.
If she has to endure one more positivity lecture from Mary Margaret (who organized the entire thing and dragged her here, against her will) she’s going to explode.
So she makes a beeline for the bar area, ignoring the whispers along the way. Except the minute she gets there, she sees it’s not really a bar but more of a beverage area, with no booze in sight.
“I can’t believe I skipped out on being a tenth level wizard for this,” Emma mutters under her breath.
