AN: Much needed scene for The Line Up (currently undergoing a monster edit, grateful for anyone who would be interested in taking a look at the latest draft – send me a PM).

38). "You're kind of sexy when you're angry." (Spence / Lucy – The Line Up)

"So, you really had no idea?"

Shaking his head, Spence looked out at the football field in front of them, watching the players go through the motions.

"Surely you are not that dense?" When the young man next to her said nothing, she said, "Wow, you are."

"Thanks, Lucy. I appreciate that."

"So, what will you do?" Seeing his reaction, the brunette softened her tone.

"What can I do? Apparently my drumline captain has been spending the better part of her senior year defending her reputation which I have been wrongfully and inexplicably implicated in. It's a wonder she hasn't collapsed entirely." Spence clenched a fist and growled, "But how could they think that we were…? Her own Line? I just want to kick each and every one of their asses."

Lucy gave him a sideways look to which the Forrest Hills instructor asked, "What?"

"You're kind of sexy when you're angry."

"You're not helping."

"I know, look, I think you're underestimating Bronwyn. She's made it this far and hasn't needed or asked your help."

Spence was quiet a moment before he asked, "How long have you known?"


"And why did you tell me now?"

"Bronwyn's got this idea if you are involved with someone else, it will help take the heat off of her."

"So you're not here on accident?"

"I'm supporting my girl, whatever it takes..."

AN: Too many you'res… Hope you're having a good summer. :)
