*Loud sigh of relief*

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 such an expression on her face in the first few moments of their conversation. But it definitely wasn’t, because a moment later, he found himself chuckling lightly at the subject matter: Lucien Dubois. Or rather, not quite him - although that was also a laughable subject - but what Emmett had done to him.

“Two weeks of detention and twenty House points,” Emmett replied proudly. Obviously detention sucked - he’d already had to scrub cauldrons for Rob and tote around fertilizer for the groundskeeper, but he was mostly just praying to any deity who would listen that he wouldn’t be with Professor Blair for any of his detentions - but he still felt he was in the right and was rather proud of himself. Lucien deserved a lot more than Emmett’s stupid bruised fist was capable of serving.

“You did something too, didn’t you? Hex him or something?” the fourth year verified. “Did he cry? Because he cried when I hit him. It was pretty great.” Emmett grinned. It was odd for him to take such delight in something like this as he was normally quite a nonviolent person, but Lucien had managed to pull the worst out of him. He’d never punched anyone except Mikey before, and he almost always exclusively was punching back. Lucien super deserved it.

He happened a glance around the room, just to check in on his other friends. Holland was talking to that Ruben kid, which just solidified Emmett’s jealous instinctive dislike of him, and Marissa was talking to Russell Drew, which he also didn’t like because Emmett already had the position of “fourth year friend to the fifth year group” already filled, thanks. Danny over there seemed to be talking to… ooh. Camilla. Now she was welcome to join their circle. He might’ve hovered his sights on that pair, but that was rude to Rose, so after a second he returned his full attention to her.

  • 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

      • 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
