    Summary

    “I mean,” explains Adora, “We were friends for so long, and all that. Don’t you–” she swallows, “–don’t you miss me, too?”

    “You can’t miss someone sitting right across from you,” responds Catra. Adora can’t help but disagree.

    She looks at Catra expectantly, and after a pause, Catra lets out a long breath. “Fine, fine,” she says. “You’ve always been my favorite ghost, skeleton in the closet, whatever.” Adora frowns over at her. Catra shrugs, evidently unwilling to say anything else. Catra gives her another look that punctuates this, a look that says stop asking for more and Adora, folding her hands neatly, does as she's told.

    Summary

    “Why are you here?” Adora asks.

    Catra steps in close, gratified when Adora takes a shaky step back and then another, til her back is up against the wall of the gym. “Would you believe that I missed you?”

    --

    When Adora transfers from Horde Academy to Bright Moon Prep in their final year of high school, she and Catra pretty much stop talking. Until they don't.

    Summary

    On the day of Adora’s eighteenth birthday, she wakes up with Catra’s name written on her wrist in short, jagged spikes.

    “What the hell is this?” she asks from her position on Glimmer’s floor (she hasn’t been able to sleep on her own since she was like twelve, sue her). She frowns and points to the writing, stretching her wrist up so her best friend can see the freshly inked skin.

    Glimmer takes one look at her wrist and says, “Shit.”

    On the day of Adora's eighteenth birthday, she finds out soulmates are a thing.
