Marissa appreciated Danny so much. His optimism and desire to support his friends rivaled her own. At this moment, it beat hers. Well, Marissa still won the “support the friends” category, since this party was literally being thrown to distract two one two of their friends from the super stressful college stuff. But when it came to optimism, his was unrivaled. He believed that Rose would come; Marissa was starting to think otherwise. She knew Rose was still mad at her, but she thought that this party was a clear attempt to say sorry and make things normal again.

It was hard to want to be back together with someone when he made one of her best friends so happy. And Holland really, really was happy with him. She supported their relationship so much. She kept her head on his shoulder and smiled at the platonic kiss. Seriously, it was amazing they were back to normal. She needed that when the one friendship she thought she could count on for the rest of her life was completely falling apart, and she wasn’t sure if it could, or should, ever be repaired.

This was a party for her friends, but it was still her party. She stepped out of the hug and grinned up at him. “Alright. What do you want to do? Dance off? Find a drink? Food? It’s a party!”

        “Your life would be way boring without me,” Marissa quipped. Danny laughed at her incredulously. “I’ll take a little bit of that boring, please,” he quipped back. If he could make it through the end... more
