Teal Rosse
Someone Thinks They're So Clever
Wed Mar 15, 2017 23:14

When Teal found out there was a party in the Secret Passageways, the Draco thought she would die of excitement. And frustration. She'd been here a whole year and a half, and she STILL hadn't found the secret passageways. Mom and Dad were being big buttheads who wouldn't tell her anything. Dad, of course, suggested all sorts of nonsense like flying into the fake sun of the Quidditch Pitch ("There's a hole in the ceiling!"), but Teal was pretty sure there wasn't a ceiling to the Pitch. What if a player bumped their head? Plus she wasn't that good of a flyer anyway. Teal assured herself that, as usual, Dad was pulling her leg (she hoped!) and kept looking.

Then one afternoon, Teal hung back in class to ask Professor Boot about Sasquatch sightings on the Oregon Trail, and they somehow got sidetracked into the extremely lost polar bear cub Boot rescued as a child. (Teal didn't believe for a minute that he'd had a polar bear OR had ever been a child, but Prof. Boot sure was a good storyteller.) An hour later, Teal was heading down to dinner when she saw two upperclassmen pull a painting away from the wall and step into a darkened corridor beyond. Teal ran up and opened the painting-door a crack-- this was it! She had to wait til later to explore because of the kissing sounds (was that really what kissing sounded like??). But Teal had her way to the party at last.

She was really excited about her fun outfit for her fun secret party. Teal really, really liked sparkly things. Her dress had a sparkly gold top and a knee-length bright pink skirt. She wore her favorite boots (sparkly black ankle boots, perfect in case she had to run if the party got caught but also super fun) and pushed back her straight brown hair with a black headband with a little bow on it. Teal wasn’t super in to bows (not like Remington!) but the bow made it less boring. But the thing that made this really dressed-up, really fancy, was the bright pink eye shadow the freckly girl had acquired.

Teal didn’t wear makeup very often. She didn’t want to look too girly (not soft!). That’s why her dress was bright, bold pink, so she had bright, bold eye shadow too. Now, Teal didn’t exactly know how to wear the eyeshadow, but it came with a little sponge thing on a stick, so she just patted it all over her eyelids until they extremely pink. That made it fancy, right? It was fashion. Her eye shadow matched her dress (that was how makeup was done). Boom, fancy. Teal wasn’t dressing up for anyone. She just wanted to look cool.

She snuck sneakily out of the Draco dorm. The boots were charmed not to shed glitter, so she didn’t have to worry about leaving a trail. In a few minutes, she’d arrived at the party. Teal grinned excitedly as she watched the crowd of students mill around and dance. There was even a DJ! She glanced around and was relieved to see a large table piled with snacks. She’d eaten a light dinner, since she didn’t want to be too full to eat party snacks, but she also didn’t want to risk no snacks at all.

But this party, unlike Halloween, wasn’t just about the snacks. This party was about daaaaaaates! Teal blushed furiously as a tall, dark, and handsome upperclassman handed her a flower. She wasn’t really looking for a boyfriend, but since she was already gonna be on a date, hopefully it was someone cute! All she had to do was find whoever had a matching flower. Teal wandered closer to some hanging lights, her golden top glimmering, to get a closer look.

“Really?” She laughed, annoyed and amused. “A teal rose? Reeaaallly?” That wasn’t even how you said her last name! It was Rosse (rhymed with boss or awesomesauce). “A teal rose for Teal Rosse, how clever.”

    “Could you put these up?” Marissa half asked, half instructed Armaan, handing him the decorations that remained. She had a couple of charms left to do, including the ever so popular glowing lights... more

      • You have to admit it's pretty perfect. - Raja Nazari-Richards, Thu Mar 16 00:37
        His suit didn’t fit. Raja only had one, and it didn’t fit. He supposed that made sense, really, because it was the one his parents had bought for his baby sister’s Christening, and he’d grown quite a ... more
        • I agree completely - Teal, Sun Mar 19 03:24
          “Oh! Hi Raja!” Teal grinned, seeing that the younger boy held a blue-green rose. It seemed she was Raja’s date for the evening (or he was her date) (or they were each other’s dates). He looked quite... more
          • Glad to be agreed with - Raja, Tue Mar 21 02:59
            Raja had not predicted a giggle and a blush, but here he was, being giggled and blushed at. She was glad they got matched. He was, too. Raja hadn’t really made any definitive friends at RMI yet, most ... more
            • You're very agreeable - Teal, Sun Apr 9 04:34
              Teal was surprised and delighted when Raja offered her his arm. What a gentleman! He was such a classy guy. She wasn’t exactly sure how to take him up on this. He must have been really smooth as a... more
    • My first real party! Eep! - Marley Chapman, Tue Mar 14 22:57
      “Hi! Is this for me? Wow, thanks! It’s pretty!” The older boy might have agreed with her declaration, or he might not have, but she didn’t stick around to find out. Marley bounced away cheerfully,... more
      • Mine too, as it happens - Connor Farnon, Wed Mar 15 05:56
        Connor Farnon was in the middle of doing something particularly unusual for him. He was sneaking out of his dorm. It was past curfew, and the Cetus did care, but he was busy stubbornly proving his... more
        • We can be excited together! - Marley, Wed Mar 15 14:24
          “Oh, right,” she giggled again at the reminder that she hadn’t actually greeted him. “Good evening to you too!” Connor was always kind of formal, whereas Marley was super not formal, as proved now... more
          • Somehow I find that unlikely - Connor, Wed Mar 15 15:46
            One of the few things Connor had in common with his younger brother - a thing they both did not have in common with Rose - was an appreciation for silence. Connor coupled that appreciation with one... more
            • “Mandrake!” Marley echoed. “That’s not really a fruit, is it? Well, I guess pumpkin isn’t a fruit, either. Or is it? I don’t actually know. Anyways,” she rounded off hastily, having noticed that... more
              • I do, indeed, seem to be stuck - Connor, Tue Mar 21 14:23
                Oh no, Marley was coming with him? Connor groaned internally as she skipped along. The whole point had been to get rid of her without being rude, but he saw clearly that particular avenue of... more
                • You're not getting away easily - Marley, Wed Mar 22 12:20
                  “You don’t?” she interjected with more than a little shock. Not that it was a problem that Connor apparently didn’t enjoy eating sweets or - crisps, whatever those were - clearly not important - but... more
                  • Not to say that I'm not trying - Connor, Fri Mar 24 04:33
                    To his utter lack of surprise, Marley hopped right in after his comment about cheese. To his surprise - although it shouldn’t have been, really - she proceeded to utterly baffle him within seconds.... more
                    • It's really not your best effort - Marley, Fri Mar 24 14:13
                      Caught by surprise, she blinked at Connor a few times before bursting into giggles. He didn't have a very obvious sense of humour, but she had learned over the past twoish years that he could be... more
                      • Well I wouldn't want to be rude - Connor, Sun Mar 26 09:15
                        Great, now Marley was acting like he was stupid for not knowing what cheese in a jar was. Connor bristled a little bit. Well maybe she was the stupid one for eating cheese that came in a jar . There... more
                        • You've been anything but! - Marley, Sun Mar 26 13:09
                          "That's one way to put it," she agreed brightly, or as brightly as she could manage through her mouthful of brownie. Innovative was too fancy of a word for something as boring as Cheese Whiz, but it... more
                          • I do try my best - Connor, Mon Mar 27 04:28
                            Well he shouldn’t have been surprised that Marley was prone to outbursts but Connor couldn’t say that he wasn’t surprised by the comment that had triggered this one. He was confused. Muggle food was... more
                            • Let me help you with that - Marley, Tue Mar 28 00:48
                              “Well, yeah,” Marley returned, not picking up on his patronizing tone. “But that’s proof, isn’t it? A lot of Muggle food and wizard food aren’t very different at all, since they have the same food... more
    • Blindly Partying - Hunter Ioma, Tue Mar 14 21:30
      Hunter was beginning to feel a little bad about the amount of time he spent in the secret passages. It was seriously a lot. He knew there must be lots of other great places to explore in the school... more
      • Neither blind nor partying - Dade Farnon, Wed Mar 15 06:09
        Once again, Dade was in attendance at a party that he didn’t strictly want to be at, in attire he didn’t strictly want to be wearing, all because he felt bad saying no to Remington when she got too... more
        • My clothes might be bright enough to blind - Remington Burnham, Wed Mar 15 21:37
          There were way more parties at Rocky Mountain International than Remington expected. Granted, she was barely twelve, so parties weren’t even on her radar when she started school. She went to the one... more
          • At Least We're All Blind Together - Hunter Ioma, Wed Mar 15 23:16
            As Hunter crept along the wall and continued watching the party, he started to feel acutely underdressed. Everyone was wearing like nice cool people clothes and he was just in khakis and and a... more
            • I don't want to be together with you - Dade, Tue Mar 21 05:30
              Dade breathed a sigh of relief when Remington appeared next to him, clutching a flower. It didn’t match his, but that was fine with him. The rules of this party were stupid anyway, and he didn’t want ... more
              • He could be fun - Remington, Fri Mar 24 23:34
                Remington considered herself to be a fairly friendly person. That reason made her friendship with Dade more amusing. He wasn’t a friendly person. When she tried to rationalize their friendship, she... more
                • Blinded by Science - Hunter Ioma, Sun Apr 2 14:50
                  As usual, Hunter realized jumping out and animatedly talking at people without warning or introduction was probably not the greatest idea only after doing it. He’d really have to work on that. The... more
    • I can think of a person I'd like to blind - Rose Farnon, Tue Mar 14 20:10
      It probably wasn’t strictly Armaan’s fault that Rose was in a bad mood, but she was going to blame him anyway, the fifth year decided as she straightened the black dress in front of the mirror, gave... more
      • I hope it's not me! - Emmett Lawrence, Tue Mar 14 20:32
        When Emmett was picking out his outfit, he had not intended to look like Holland’s semi-matching prom date. Unfortunately, as he beheld their sparkly golden appearance, he glanced down at himself and ... more
        • For once, you're in the clear - Rose, Wed Mar 15 09:36
          Honestly, there were probably worse people to have appeared at Rose’s elbow than Emmett Lawrence. Although she found him annoying and kind of puppy-pathetic at times, she was actually kind of fond of ... more
          • *Loud sigh of relief* - Emmett, Fri Mar 17 20:10
            Hm. Rose didn’t seem as fond of the cheese as he was. If he were any more dramatic an individual (if that was possible) he might have considered it a bad omen for a delectable little cute to inspire... more
            • Don't get too comfortable there - Rose, Sun Mar 19 11:43
              “Not too bad,” Rose acknowledged at Emmett’s punishment. Two weeks of detention wasn’t terrible at all, and twenty house points was nothing. Rose admittedly had never ended up with more than a week... more
              • When have I ever been "too" comfortable? - Emmett, Mon Mar 20 02:55
                “Oh my god!” Emmett laughed. “That’s hilarious.” He could just imagine Lucien with his legs immobilized and little birds bumping their pointy little beaks into the side of his head. It was probably... more
                • Let's shake things up, just in case - Rose, Fri Mar 24 04:48
                  “Marissa’s pretty good, it’s all about teambuilding right now since we’re losing Justin Alderman after this year, at least,” Rose said. “And since we don’t have reserves we’ll probably have some... more
                  • Shaken, not stirred? - Emmett, Fri Mar 24 23:09
                    Emmett hadn’t predicted Rose’s response. Admittedly, she was pretty unpredictable in general, at least to him, but he was just trying to not think so hard, and he hadn’t stopped to expect anything.... more
                    • Bond, James Bond. - Rose, Sun Mar 26 09:45
                      It was a little surprising that Emmett was still down to dance even though the mood of the songs had changed drastically. Emmett was an awkward little puppy and definitely wasn’t the smartest... more
                      • I guess that makes me the Bond girl - Emmett, Wed Mar 29 16:16
                        “Let’s do it!” She grabbed his hands and put them where she wanted them, and Emmett swallowed nervously, fighting off the rising heat in his cheeks. Well, this was certainly not how he had expected... more
                        • The role suits you - Rose, Thu Mar 30 09:16
                          Rose burst out laughing as Emmett thanked her for thanking him for the dance. Honestly, from his poleaxed look, Rose was a little surprised that he managed words at all. The fifth year hadn’t... more
                          • Well, if the mini skirt fits... - Emmett, Fri Apr 7 23:16
                            Wh… what? Wait, okay, so rewind. What had even just happened? Emmett and Rose danced, then she kissed him - Rose Farnon kissed him, Emmett Lawrence - and then he stood there like an idiot, as often... more
                            • Now there's something I'd like to see - Rose, Wed Apr 12 05:40
                              Although Emmett began answering her question like a normal person, he - completely out of nowhere - started babbling about how she had kissed him. Rose blinked hazel eyes at the fourth year, a little ... more
    • Brighter than a Buttercup - Sorsha Nolan, Tue Mar 14 15:01
      Thankfully, the girl’s day at Pearl Street had definitely come through for Sorsha. The outfit that he two friends had put together, paired with a pair of black heels had definitely done the trick in... more
      • I'm just kind of dark right now - Lucien Dubois, Wed Mar 15 01:38
        Everything hurt. Everything. In some ways, Lucien’s life had gotten better recently. He had reconciled with Francine - well, that wasn’t entirely the right word as they had never fallen too far... more
        • It's okay to be sometimes. - Sorsha, Tue Mar 21 18:39
          Had Sorsha realized the person that shared her flower was indeed the very person she’d been curious about moments earlier, she probably would have begged Armaan for a different flower. The idea of... more
          • As long as it ends eventually. - Lucien, Wed Mar 22 13:25
            He tensed a little as Sorsha moved around him, watching her from the corner of his eye as she took up a leaning stance at the wall beside him. Okay. That was fine. She responded that she was doing... more
    • Two hosts; double the fun? - Dardanius Dubois, Tue Mar 14 12:22
      Another party, another opportunity for the students of RMI to kick back and hook up. At least that was how things tended to go when Marissa was at the party helm; Danny didn't think that Armaan’s... more
      • Seems like it - Camilla , Tue Mar 14 12:28
        She had no idea why she had agreed to go to the party, but Camilla had said yes after Marissa Kendrick had actually invited her. The blonde had automatically said yes, but sort of regretted it... more
        • Here's to fun! - Dardanius, Tue Mar 14 16:00
          While attempting to identify his date, Dardanius couldn’t help but notice that Marissa looked ridiculously attractive, but her blue-and-white carnation wasn’t the corresponding favor for his purple... more
          • Maybe we should toast to that! - Camilla, Wed Mar 15 12:49
            Camilla was glad that the Faiths had intervened and matched her with Danny and not someone she didn't know. This semester she was beginning to open up a bit more, but everything was about baby steps. ... more
            • Her whole face lighted up as she smiled in victory for a job very well done. She carefully blew the lint away from her fingertip and briefly watched it fly away. Camilla didn't know what had prompted ... more
            • But you don't drink - Danny, Wed Mar 15 14:53
              It seemed like Camilla was happy to be his date for the evening, which was great. Danny hadn't thought much about how the party would go, beyond who his date might be (he had wondered about that, in... more

                • An excellent sentiment - Danny, Thu Mar 16 07:51
                  She was giving him an escape, offering to chat instead. While tempted to take the opportunity, Danny had already spent one party chatting to Camilla when she would rather have been dancing; it wasn't ... more
                  • I believe so, yes. Thank you! - Camilla, Thu Mar 16 14:52
                    The Ceti enjoyed dancing - not that she was excellent at it, though - quite a bit. She couldn't suppress the excitement when Danny agreed to, at least, attempt it. Camilla had been hanging with Danny ... more
                    • So... drinks all round? - Danny, Thu Mar 16 16:11
                      “You smell nice,” Camilla said, and, glancing at her, Dardanius would swear she was blushing, although the limited lighting made it impossible to be sure. As far as he could recall, nobody had ever... more
                      • How about some shots? - Camilla, Thu Mar 16 19:55
                        The main reason why Camilla preferred to stick to herself was because she had a mild anger problem, especially when people poked her to the point of explosion. The Ceti had become better at... more
                        • Ladies' Choice - Danny, Sat Mar 18 19:07
                          Camilla claimed to be getting better at loosening up. Dardanius felt he could make the same claim. He didn’t think he’d be hexing anyone any time soon (although neither would he rule anything out... more
                          • Lady has made her choice... - Camilla, Mon Mar 20 02:11
                            Camilla wasn't sure they could categorize what they had been doing for the past few minutes as dancing - they had been swaying back and forth, excitedly close together -, but she definitely had an... more
                            • I respect her decision - Danny, Mon Mar 20 17:53
                              A bit of swaying, a bit of stepping, some limited turning around, and Danny supposed it would have been difficult to really mess up his very basic approach to dancing. So even though he knew Camilla... more

          • That's gotta be a pretty long list. - Bryn, Tue Mar 21 17:59
            Kaye was her name and Bryn chided himself for not remembering that much. He’d heard it before, judging by the familiarity of it. He still knew that he’d never personally met her. “Kaye,” he repeated, ... more
            • I can try to narrow it down - Kaye, Sat Mar 25 22:09
              Kaye chuckled and smirked ever so slightly. “It’s not my first party, but it’s my first party here,” she clarified. If she was being completely honest, she would have admitted that this was her first ... more
              • That might be helpful - Bryn, Tue Mar 28 15:07
                “That makes two of us,” Bryn said with a grin, glad that she wasn’t really about dancing either. If she had been, well, the Nord was sure that Kaye would be disappointed in his skills. After all,... more
    • Dateless at my own party?? - Marissa Kendrick, Mon Mar 13 21:43
      It looked like the party was off to a good start. Partnering with Armaan had made her a little unsure. She knew people would come to a party she threw, but Marissa was used to trusting her friends... more
      • I'm not dateless so much as clueless - Russell Drew, Tue Mar 14 19:36
        Apparently, Russell had either been too antisocial or too unaware of his surroundings, because it wasn’t until he got invited to this party that he found out there had actually been other parties... more
        • It's okay. Clueless can be endearing. - Marissa, Tue Mar 14 21:15
          It wasn’t a third year, at least. Marissa enjoyed working with Russell in class. He was a little strange, which the Aquila thought was good. Everyone at Rocky Mountain International had their quirks. ... more
          • Not sure whether I'm relieved or confused - Russell, Wed Mar 15 12:25
            Marissa expressed pleasure at having him in attendance, and he blinked at her from behind his sunglasses, confused by that statement. Not bad confused, he thought, just confused, because obviously... more
            • You can be both. - Marissa, Wed Mar 15 15:54
              She plucked the carnation out of her hair and set it on the snack table. She paused, moved it to another spot on the table, and smiled. There, now it looked like a pretty decoration. She didn’t need... more
              • Oh good, that saves me the decision - Russell, Wed Mar 15 22:37
                Considering this was his first party (fancy birthday dinners with various relatives at his mom’s restaurant didn’t count), it did not come at all as a surprise to Russell to realize that he couldn’t... more
                • It's my job to make things easier! - Marissa, Thu Mar 16 13:29
                  Even if Marissa didn’t want to plan a party with Armaan again, she’d call this specific event a success just based on all the pleasant surprises she saw around her. Danny and Camilla were dancing... more
                  • It's easier than I expected. - Russell, Thu Mar 16 19:37
                    Once his feet had made the final slap to the ground in the drilled pattern, he opened his eyes. The first thing he saw was Marissa smiling widely at him. She had liked it? ...She had liked it.... more
                    • I'm good at what I do. - Marissa, Sun Mar 19 17:35
                      Russell’s question almost took her by surprise, and then she remembered this was his first year at Rocky Mountain International. She’d gotten used to him being in classes with her. There were also... more
                      • I'm starting to figure that out - Russell, Mon Mar 20 14:21
                        Russell had never taken a dance class. Or any type of class outside of his actual academics, really. It was hard to find classes with a physical environment he was comfortable in, and he’d given up... more
                        • It's a talent - Marissa, Sat Mar 25 23:21
                          Marissa grinned and made her way to the drinks, where she grabbed two cups and two cans of ginger ale. She knew she’d have fun with Russell, because the red head knew how to have fun in pretty much... more
                          • A natural gift - Russell, Mon Mar 27 01:00
                            Apparently, Marissa didn’t find him a drag after all. On one hand, he could understand that. Dancing together had been really fun. On the other hand, which was proportionately larger, Russell... more
                            • Organic! - Marissa, Fri Mar 31 21:37
                              It was really sweet how happy Russell was now. Marissa couldn’t think of a time where she’d seen the fourth year smile so genuinely. He was a really nice kid. A little odd, but everyone at Rocky... more
    • Feeling pretty satisfied - Ruben Lundqvist, Mon Mar 13 21:25
      It was fortunate that Ruben enjoyed skulking through the hallways, because otherwise he might not have discovered the secret passages that lined RMI’s walls. He had been in the administrative part of ... more
      • Satisfaction brought the cat back - Holland Keene, Tue Mar 14 01:26
        It turned out that Holland Keene had the best friends a person could ask for. Holland, of course, had reported Lucien to Counselor/Head of House Tennant, who had apparently put the guy through... more
        • That was a pretty cool cat - Ruben, Tue Mar 14 15:33
          Fan , Holland looked incredible. His eyes had lit up upon seeing who he had been partnered with: sparkly ballgowns didn't fit his personal style interests, but that didn't mean he couldn't admire it, ... more
          • I’m more of a dog person - Holland, Tue Mar 14 23:25
            The room (according to Ruben) wasn’t the only thing burning up. Holland felt their cheeks flush. The transfer made a two-handed check-you-out gesture, and the last of Holland’s self-consciousness... more
            • I'm more of a people person - Ruben , Wed Mar 15 13:48
              Of course Ruben noticed Holland’s blush in response to his compliment. He was a good observer to begin with, and right now he’d been studying Holland with pretty keen admiration (hah, keen , like... more
              • Luckily, I’m a people - Holland, Thu Mar 16 00:43
                Holland was definitely listening to what Ruben was saying, even if they zoned out a little while he spoke. The accent was distracting. Picturing different styles of braids on him was also... more
                • Then we'll get on just fine - Ruben, Thu Mar 16 11:56
                  “In that case, let me know if you have any ideas,” he told Holland. Ruben had noticed pretty quickly that the uniform RMI claimed to have was not closely followed, neither by students nor professors. ... more
                  • I think we are - Holland, Sat Mar 18 18:35
                    Holland had a lot of ideas, actually—including waterfall braids and two variations on braided top knots—but it didn’t seem like a good time to go into the finer points of hairstyles, so they just... more
                    • I think I agree - Ruben, Sun Mar 19 13:27
                      For the unenlightened, a common misconception: dudes in chains either didn’t have a sense of humour at all or it was a strange one. Ruben was somewhere in between this and the opposite of it. He... more
                      • So what happens now? - Holland, Fri Mar 31 21:33
                        Holland’s cheeks pinked slightly at the compliment, and they grinned reflexively. “Drama club, sort of.” They had been involved with the theater at RMI since their first year, and had consequently... more
                        • Now, we slow it down a little - Ruben, Sat Apr 1 00:25
                          Ruben was surprised by the change in pace with the party's soundtrack. To be fair, he hadn't done much partying of this style before and so couldn't really be sure that his expectations would like up ... more
                          • I like the sound of that - Holland, Wed Apr 5 12:48
                            Ruben was a bit of a liar, because he said he wasn’t going to do anything interesting and then he put his hand on the small of their back, which Holland found a very interesting move. Well, all... more
                            • That's the reaction I was hoping for - Ruben, Thu Apr 6 00:12
                              He'd never been to a party hosted by Marissa before, obviously, so he didn't have much to compare it to. But it was decent, he supposed. Good decorations, good enough music. A pretty energetic crowd, ... more
    • A Case of the Blind Date Blues - Elijah Carthy, Mon Mar 13 21:00
      Elijah had not been pleased with the turn of events of the past few weeks. Things in school had definitely taken a strange turn and the Cetus was not exactly proud of himself. While Holland was his... more
      • Why so glum, chum? - Francine Holtz, Wed Mar 15 02:09
        In a bizarre twist of events, it was Lucien who wanted to attend a party and Francine who didn’t. It was a blind date party, and she already had the only date she wanted, eyes open. She was certain... more
        • You don't want to know. - Elijah, Tue Mar 21 18:10
          Elijah stiffened just slightly as Francine’s voice washed over him. Quickly he shook it off, not wanting anything to seem totally off. If Lucien hadn’t told admin about their not so chance meeting... more
          • Why's that, friend? - Francine, Wed Mar 22 23:29
            If Francine were more observant, she might have noticed at least a slight discomfort in Elijah or picked up on some signal that maybe this wasn’t a great idea. But she wasn’t, so she didn’t. The only ... more
            • It's no fun to talk about at a party? - Elijah, Tue Mar 28 14:33
              Elijah found it a bit easier to genuinely smile when Francine seemed relaxed in his company. He had a small amount of hope that this whole thing would just blow over and that only slight... more
              • Well, tell me about it later? - Francine, Sat Apr 8 00:20
                Francine winced internally at the mention of her and Elijah’s mutual friend. She knew Lucien had sorta snapped at Camilla recently and had already talked to him about it. Apparently he had accused... more
