Trust me, my plans do not include you
Wed Nov 1, 2017 11:17

As suddenly as Connor thought he had the situation under control, it spun so far out of the realm of his imagination that he didnít have time to realize it before things got Very Bad. He hadnít noticed Marley trying to ask him on dates, unless she counted trying to kill him as a date, but Connor was pretty sure that he would never, not in a million years, not even under an Imperius Curse, have any inclination whatsoever to ever date Marley. Ever. No. Even if he didnít have an arrangement with Claudia, there were just so many reasons that Marley was entirely out of the question that he would never have thought to think about it. It was so far out of the question that he was shocked that Marley had even thought of it, and Marley was fantastic at doing things that were terrible and inappropriate.

Worse than her liking him, she thought he liked her now when all Connor had been trying to do was politely tell her how much he didnít like her. That was all. How had it backfired so completely.

Connor took a deep breath. He looked around the room at his classmates all happily working on the assignment, not being terrorized by Marley Chapman. He wanted to be them right now, but instead he had this to deal with and how was he going to do this his thoughts were too busy swirling around his head and now he had been quiet for too long and Marley was going to think he liked her back (well she already did, he supposed) and everything was terrible and he felt very anxious and his skin was very cold. So he did the best thing he could think of.

ďItís-nice-of-you-to-ask-I-have-to-go,Ē Connor managed, before bolting out of the room as fast as he could, heading towards the boysí bathroom. Even Marley wouldnít go in there (right?) and he could get his stuff later. After class. When he was sure she wasnít going to ambush him. Maybe he would just have Dade get it for him or something. Maybe if he hid long enough, Professor McKindy would just bring it to the Cetus commons or something. Regardless, as Connor arrived at the bathroom, pulled open the door and ducked in, he felt a mild sense of relief. At least he had some time to figure out what to do with this disaster that was Marley.

He would write his father tonight asking to transfer to Hogwarts, thatís what he would do.

  • Connorís confirmation that he hadnít done much flirting before, either, was not only accompanied by a small smile of his own, but in turn met with a more enthusiastic smile from Marley. Oh, phew !... more

      • Something's wrong!! (tag: Mister Aaron) - Marley, Wed Nov 1 16:42
        Connor didn't immediately agree that yes a date would be marvelous, great idea Marley, you're marvelous too , but he also didn't immediately say no never , so she supposed that his silent staring and ... more
        • Yeah I'm starting to get that feeling - Professor McKindy, Thu Nov 2 18:47
          Although Aaron had been wandering around the room at the start of class, answering questions, he had since let the students get on with their projects without his constant hovering. If they needed... more
          • You have no idea - Connor, Thu Nov 2 19:03
            Connor had barely had the opportunity to take a deep breath when he heard Marley outside the door. Why had she followed him? His eyes were wide as he looked around the bathroom contemplating the best ... more
            • I don't, either!! - Marley, Fri Nov 3 21:09
              The great thing about Mister Aaron was that he was not only super nice, but he was also a super good pay-attention-er. (Was there a real word for that? She didnít think so, but even if there was,... more
              • At least we're all on the same page - Prof. McKindy, Sat Nov 4 11:03
                Marley stepped back and let the door swing shut, so that was one fewer thing that Aaron had to do. She was still bouncing, clearly invested in the situation, but at the very least she was giving poor ... more
