Rare Pairs Prompt #14

I'm looking forward to hearing how you're all doing, and to handing out any short prompts today!

Here's the next 'long' prompt:

Forget "meet cute", try "meet hate." The first time the pair meets up ends in an argument, maybe they even get arrested, but eventually they do get past it and fall in love.


Need a short prompt or two? Give me some numbers between 1 and 150 and I'll give you some (hopefully) inspirational words. Note: some of these may be suggestive, but you don't have to use them that way, OR you may ask me for another word to replace the one/s you don't like, and I'll find you something that's more general.

The next long prompt will be in two days time, but in the meantime if you need anything else, comment here and I'll reply as soon as I can!
