The trouble with trouble, is it starts out as fun

Lyssa looked over at the boy standing next to her. He sounded so proper, though that was really just his accent. She enjoyed hearing him talk. Something about him though made her think about her eldest brother John Jr. It was momentary, but made her slightly cautious from the get go.

Lyssa looked down at her drink, "It is very orange indeed."

She stuck out her hand trying to assess what it was about this boy that made her think of JJ. He looked different from John Jr. in many ways, but there was something. "My name's Lyssa. What’s yours?"

She was trying hard not to let the feeling that he was reminding her of JJ to dissuade her from talking with him. Then it hit her like a ton of bricks, it was his smile. It felt like the smile was more of a smirk, and he was hiding something behind it. She was trying not to let the feelings inside of her rise towards anger and defensiveness. She needed to give him the benefit of the doubt. She took a deep breath and put the smile on her face she’d learned to put on when talking with people who thought she wasn’t fill in the blank enough to do something. She hated using the smile, but she also didn’t want to start off assuming everyone she met was like JJ. That would be bad.

          The handshake was firm. It almost felt like the boy was trying to prove something to her with it, which Lyssa thought was entertaining. There really was no reason to do so. She returned the handshake ... more

            Malikhi held in a laugh. It was rare that anyone managed to pronounced his name correctly the first time and it amused him each time. It was like his own personal trick and he didn't even need to put ... more
