The role suits you

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 intended to break Emmett’s brain with the kiss, but it looked like it might have happened anyway, which she found absolutely hilarious. Had this happened every time Marissa kissed Emmett? Rose couldn’t remember paying much attention to them kissing ever. She typically didn’t - Marissa spent a lot of time kissing people and Rose had better places to invest her time than keeping an eye on Marissa all the time to judge her kissing partners’ reactions. Although admittedly, it might have been an interesting experiment, particularly since Marissa wasn’t usually too picky about who she was kissing. She’d even made out with Lucien Dubois, although that was admittedly before he’d turned the entire fifth year class against him.

Well anyway, kissing Emmett hadn’t been bad, for her anyway, but it hadn’t really answered any of her questions about crushes and if she had one on Emmett. Rose had dated Josh because he was cute and sweet and talented and she liked all of those things about people. Emmett was - well, he was kind of cute? Rose wasn’t sure that she would use the word ‘sweet’ to describe him, though. And ‘talented’ was definitely off the table, unless you were talking about being talented at being awkward, in which case he took the cake. Emmett was good friends with Holland though, which spoke well of his character since Holland was both weird and seemed to hold people to high standards, what with their gender thing and all. Being in the same year as the Lyra had definitely opened Rose’s eyes to some things she wouldn’t have otherwise thought about.

Briefly considering apologizing for the damage she’d clearly done to his mental functions, Rose pushed the thought and instead grinned as she imagined how the conversation with Marissa would go after this. Marissa would tell all about Russell and then Rose would break the news that she’d kissed Emmett and his brain had exploded and they’d both giggle. She was so lucky that her best friend was also her roommate. It would suck to have a single, or to room with people she didn’t like as much as she liked Marissa.

“Soooo,” Rose drew out the word as she tried to think of a conversation topic again. Talking to Emmett was sometimes difficult. “What’s new in your world?”

  • 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

      • 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
