Prompt: Sam is a badass who’s been arrested a number of times and Mercedes is a famous singer, they fall in love and the tabloids go crazy over how a rebel like him is with “America’s sweetheart”. By the way, I love your stories.
Mercedes gripped the bat in hand and crept down the stairs of her house, slowing her breaths and trying to remember what she learned in her self-defense classes. When she neared her kitchen, she saw that the light was on. Closing her eyes and counting to ten to calm herself, she gripped the bat tighter and moved into the room.
“You gave all of your staff a Christmas vacation? That ain’t safe. Anyone could get in here,” Sam said, shutting the refrigerator and biting into an apple. He looked at her, standing there in her pajamas with a messy ponytail and a wild expression with a bat held above her head before bursting into laughter.
She released the breath she was holding and lowered the weapon, glaring daggers at the blond.
“How the hell did you get in here? Everything is locked. The gate, the doors, and I’ve got sensors…” she trailed off when he folded his arms and raised an eyebrow at her.
