She immediately felt bad about her response. She didn’t mean to be rude or whatever. It’s not like her love life had ever been a secret from anyone. Even if she actively tried to keep it a secret, no one would respect that rule. She knew what her reputation at Rocky Mountain International was, and while it didn’t bother her, it kind of meant that her love life was always someone’s business. Maybe it was everyone’s.

“No, I’m sorry,” she said immediately after he started speaking. Their speech might have overlapped; she wasn’t entirely paying attention. “It was a really good party but I didn’t like it much. Working with Armaan makes me cranky and weird.”

I’m really glad everyone had fun. I’m glad you had fun.”

    He wished he hadn’t said anything. Marissa didn’t seem impressed by his question, and why would she? It really wasn’t his business to ask about her evening’s activities, as she informed him a moment... more
    • Welp, go us. - Marissa, Sun Apr 9 10:59
      • Glad that's over - Danny, Sun Apr 9 11:39
        Marissa seemed to want to talk at the same time, which was fine, because Danny hadn't been sure he was helping the situation. She was blaming Armaan for making her cranky, which caused him to grin a... more
