That's okay, I can wait

Speaking with Rose was a whole other language you had to know how to navigate. All girls spoke a different language, really, but Rose was different. For example, “Whatever” really meant “you're welcome”, so Emmett just smiles and didn't push her excuse. Rose had a heart of gold beneath that come-at-me exterior, but it was a lot smarter (and safer) to point it out to her as infrequently as possible.

Then all of a sudden, his head was extra cold, and it took his frozen brain a moment to figure out why. “Oh!” He uttered, as if he had forgotten. Looking at Rose, he almost had. But the initial reaction it had gotten from a different Aquila girl meant he couldn't let it go completely. Kaye had been so upset, which was the exact opposite of what he'd been aiming for. He'd just wanted to make sure she knew that she wasn't alone, that she had friends here who wanted to support her. Somehow, that message had gotten lost in translation, apparently.

“No, it was… it was on purpose,” he replied at last. “Holland did it for me over break. I asked them to,” Emmett added quickly to defend Holland’s beauty guru reputation before Rose had the opportunity to condemn them for this particular hair choice.

Emmett took a breath. He probably should explain it all to her, since she was his girlfriend and all that. “You know I'm friends with Kaye, and she had a rough midterm and I just wanted to show her that I'm with her and I support her. But honestly I may take you or Holland up on fixing it soon, because she didn't… really… appreciate it.” Kaye had in fact shouted at him and called him an asshole, but he was putting it mildly for fear that Rose might actually like him enough to do something about it.

      • Even with Emmett asking, Rose was shocked that Holland would have accepted any role in his shearing. Holland would have know that Emmett would look like a house-elf without hair, and yet they had... more
        • I mean, it could be? - Emmett, Tue Oct 3 13:30
          Emmett did his best to suppress a laugh, which resulted in a stilted chortle. Jealous? Well that was silly. Jealousy was only a thing when there was, like, feelings involved, and that was totally not ... more
          • That sounds disturbing - Rose, Tue Oct 17 12:29
            Rose bit back a sigh. Of course Emmett had just wanted to be Kaye’s friend and had managed to put forth the most pathetic effort possible in doing so. The Aquila was unsure what, precisely, about... more
