    Summary

    Yang's untouchable; Blake's anything but. The first time they meet can't be the first at all, not with Yang lighting up every billboard on the Sunset Strip and Blake's voice crooning through the radio regardless of the station, not when every motion of Yang's is achingly familiar and every turn of Blake's mouth leads like a staircase. It's Hollywood, and Yang's spent years learning how to get exactly what wants her - Blake's spent years running from it.

    If I could, Blake says, I'd kiss you right now.

    If I could, Yang says, I'd let you.

    Summary

    Blake smiles, and it’s one of the saddest things Yang’s ever seen. “I’m pretty sure we know each other in other lives. And not just one or two. I think we’ve been together many, many times.”

    And Yang, who doesn’t believe in any of these things, who makes fun of ghost stories and astrology and crystal balls, looks Blake right in the eye and says, “Yeah, I think you’re right.”

    Summary

    It's always supposed to be simpler than it is: a contract, a kill, a payment. Maybe the world's a little safer; maybe the vampires retain their peace just a little longer. That's what used to count as a good day.

    But now Yang steps too close, smells like salt and rosewood, looks like the kind of sex that ends with Blake’s fangs sinking into the side of her neck, blood filling up her mouth. Let’s open the windows to the rain, she thinks of saying. Let’s flood the room, let’s turn down the lights.

    Let me see you in the dark.

    Summary

    She kisses Yang back just as furiously, teeth biting on her bottom lip hard enough to hurt, and when they part her swollen lip is the only thing Blake’s able to comprehend - how pretty Yang looks without her cocky smile, when her mouth is relegated to other things and can’t fucking speak. How pretty she looks when she’s so close Blake can barely see the details, cataloging the sun setting against a lavender sky and the tip of her tongue slipping out to wet her lips. Oh, but that’s later; they’ll deny this, first. It’s just better for business.

    What, Yang says, do I look like I'm made of money?

    Yes, Blake thinks of saying. Yes, you kind of do. Like the world owes you just for living.

    Summary

    Blake Belladonna looks exactly like the music she plays: heavy beats and low bass lines and a voice that sounds like a caution sign. Yang rolls the ball of her tongue piercing against the roof of her mouth, watches Blake sing with her lips against the microphone, a calling, a turning point. Blake falls into her arms with a laugh; Yang's more pop-punk but now she's getting into love.

    I figured out what I believe in, Yang says.

    Music? Blake asks.

    You.
