It had rained on pretty much every significant bad day of Nicole’s life, so she obviously wasn’t much of a fan of the inclement weather.
Nicole hates the rain but maybe it isn't so bad...
My attempt at a submission for the EFA Fic Challenge 2018!
Marceline and her twin, Marshall Lee, attend the University of Ooo and escape their abusive father's grasp. When they both fall in love with their roommates, will they confess their love or will Bonnie and Benny confess first? My attempt at a Bubbline/Gumlee Modern AU. Contains LGBT (duh) and light cursing. Adapted from my Fanfiction.net version.
"In the doorway stood a lean, blonde girl with pink highlights. She wore a pair of glasses and LOTS of pink. I noticed she was chewing gum, but as discreetly as possible. "I'm Bonnibel Gummerson. And, I guess I'm also your roommate." She stuck out her hand."
Nicole perked up when she recognized the familiar face. “Hey, I remember you! Green tea latte, right?”
“Yes please, and do you by chance have almond milk?”
“Uh last I checked, we do not…” The barista checked under one of the counters for confirmation. “Sorry, is soy milk alright?”
“It'll have to do.”
Nicole scribbled down the order on the side of the cup. “Your name is…” She squinted her eyes as she tried to remember. “... Waverly?”
“Waverly.” The brunette nodded in confirmation with a smile. The cute barista had remembered her name.
Nicole is a barista at a coffee shop near her university's campus and Waverly is a regular customer. Waverly's requests for almond milk lead Nicole to make a special purchase and maybe something more.
Seeing no one else in line, Nicole asked, “Are you a single?”
Unfortunately for her, her neck gator slightly muffled the “a” in the sentence. Taken aback, the shorter girl turned to the boarder. “Excuse me? I um just got out of a relationship. With a boy. Man!” she blurted, noticing red locks of hair peeking beneath the taller woman’s beanie.
Nicole blinked in confusion, even if the skier couldn't see her eyes through her blue Oakley Prizm goggles. “Um I'm sorry? I meant ‘are you a single rider’ because there's no point in both of us riding a high-speed quad by ourselves.”
Nicole is on vacation by herself and sees no one else in line except for one more early riser. Neck gators get in the way and make things uncomfortable but Smooth!Haught sneaks in.
“And she's done it! Nicole Haught has once again secured a spot on the American track team for the 2012 Summer Olympics! What a day for the returning Olympian!”
Nicole was jolted awake as the plane experienced slight turbulence. She opened her eyes to see them quickly approaching the ground. In normal economy-class airline seats, there wasn't nearly enough space for her long legs in the tiny space, but in first-class, she sat comfortably by the window. Being an Olympic-level athlete was the best.
Nicole loved it.
As her flight landed, she and the rest of the American Olympians on the plane exited the gate.
“Welcome to London…” she said to herself.
Nicole is an American track star returning for her third Olympics in London. She's in it to win it, and to her, winning a gold would be the best thing that could happen... until she literally bumps into Canadian gymnast, Waverly Earp, who may just be the best experience for Nicole. But Nicole knows these feelings aren't meant for "just friends". She just hopes Waverly feels the same.
Or the Wayhaught Olympics AU no one asked for. Enjoy!
