I guess I can just be empty handed
Sun Jan 15, 2017 16:39

Marissa gave a celebratory whoop! as she made it past Danny. In the back of her mind, she thought of going back to check on him because that fall looked way nastier than she had intended, but she’d already gotten a little further ahead. Surely, if Danny wanted to enact some kind of revenge, he’d catch up to her and let her know.

Plus, Marissa doubted that he disliked his current view of her as she ran ahead.

It took her a little longer to cast the bubble head charm than she expected. Most of the spellwork she was good at was spellwork she’d learned to enhance her extracurricular shenanigans. Marissa hadn’t found much of a reason to perfect this charm. After two or three tries, she finally got the bubble to cover her entire face. Once she was sure it was good to go, the Aquila started making her way towards the fire. She drew her wand and got ready to cast a spell to douse the fire—


Marissa shrieked gleefully when the water hit her. She quickly turned to face her assailant (of course it was Danny), her mouth still managing to form an ‘o’ of surprise through her laughter. “Okay, water from that spell is way colder than I expected!” She giggled and tried to shake herself off. Then she noticed his lip.

“Oh shit, did I do that?” She blinked her green eyes and raised her hands in surrender. “I was only trying to slow you down, I swear.”

      • Better than empty headed - Danny, Mon Jan 16 05:43
        Another advantage of dousing Marissa, besides revenge, was that she was now wet in a sports bra. “What?” Danny asked, her words not matching his thoughts. Then he realised she was talking about his... more
        • My head is full of knowledge, okay? - Marissa, Mon Jan 16 15:38
          If they weren’t next to a big thing of fire, Marissa would probably be shivering. How did Danny produce so much water with that tiny wand? The Aquila was almost tempted to stay by the fire a little... more
          • Okay. Just not useful knowledge. - Danny, Mon Jan 16 17:02
            “I’ll fix your lip for you when we don’t need the bubble head charm anymore,” Marissa offered. “Thanks, but I’ll pass,” he said, warily. He was not certain she had eptitude in healing spells. Spells... more
            • Marissa noticed the wariness in his voice, which she found to be a little unfair. She said she was sorry, she meant it, and she thought it had come out very genuine. Danny clearly didn’t trust her... more

                How was she still cold? The water from his charm but have been icy . If he’d have known that, Danny wasn’t sure he would have gone through with it. Maybe. Dardanius himself was actually pretty warm,... more

                  Marissa could tell that her shivering was making Danny feel uncomfortable or something. She was a good actress. She wasn’t the best – she’d never do fancy stuff like her mom did, and she didn’t want... more

                    Once Marissa was in his shoulders, Danny shakily stood, using the sheer face of the wall for support, raising his companion sufficiently that she could haul herself onto the top of the wall. That was ... more
