Marissa blinked her green eyes at the student, trying to place him. As one of the most social people at Rocky Mountain International, she tried her best to at least know everyone by name. Maybe a random fact or two. She thought about it, and she was able to identify him as a transfer student, but she couldn’t think of anything beyond that.

        At the girl's reassurance that she didn’t have a partner, Russell backtracked once again, only this time not literally as he instead stepped forward. “Oh. Okay. Sounds good.” His eye twitched several ... more
        • Dance is just memorization! - Marissa, Sun Jan 29 11:38
          Was this guy just a nervous person, or had Marissa accidentally done something to make him nervous? He didn’t seem to know her by name, so she wanted to assume it was the first one. The Aquila knew... more
