It was a rhetorical answer
Sat Jul 15, 2017 13:48

Kaye got a sorry out of the transfer. She was pretty sure they didn’t mean it, but it was one of those things. The Aquila didn’t care too much about the apology. The little snacks were somehow still warm; Carrot Top must have charmed the plates. Or had someone else charm them. Kaye couldn’t imagine the girl was too good at things besides being pretty and snogging.

There genuinely wasn’t a reason for Kaye to dislike the other Aquila so much. She definitely minded her more than she minded Rose. Marissa hadn’t ever done anything to her. The girl just rubbed Kaye the wrong way.

The transfer, though, didn’t. They just had this vibe that Kaye thought she could really mesh with. Plus, it might be a good idea to get to know the transfer, besides how they seemed in class. The transfer acted like they had some kind of baggage they brought with them to the school. They were quiet and distant, like someone with their guard constantly up. Kaye got that. Her guard just looked way different from theirs.

It might be nice to add another person to her list of humans that resembled friends. All of Kaye’s sort of friends had people to talk to. Holland and Ruben were talking to each other. That was annoying, because the Aquila really wanted to talk to Holland about eyebrows. There was no way she’d do that with another person there, though. She didn’t want anyone to give her crap about it. Kaye avoiding looking over at the two of them, mentally rolling her eyes at Ruben’s outfit. She’d give him a hard time about it, except Ruben got embarrassed about zero percent of the things he did, so it wasn’t worth it. Emmett, on the other hand, could use a little good-natured teasing.

Later. There was time.

“Spoiler, they don’t get any more interesting,” Kaye pointed out. She got bored so easily in class. She didn’t think the work was hard or challenging, and she was already considering skipping class on Monday to see if anything had changed on Pearl Street over the summer. She didn’t need to go to class to still get decent grades on the homework.

“But I’m not a very good stalker, I guess. I haven’t even worked out your name yet.”

For a moment, Kaye considered messing with the transfer and giving them some crazy name like Beulah, but this might be the only chat she had at the party that night. She didn’t want to completely waste her time. Plus, this person seemed way less fun to confuse than Pretty Boy Danny.

“Kaye,” she flashed the transfer a smile, “I’m in Aquila. Fifth year.” She grabbed a handful of grapes from the table and popped one in her mouth. How did Marissa get all of this stuff at her party? “I don’t know your name either. Or pronouns. Care to enlighten me, or are you gonna stay shrouded in stalker mystery?”

    “You’re standing in front of the pigs in a blanket.” Oh. Maverick shifted awkwardly to offer her access to the… pigs in a blanket. Which were totally weird, by the way. But also so was he,... more

      • Well, now things are just getting redundant - Maverick, Wed Jul 19 17:42
        Kaye, huh? That was cool. He didn’t think he’d met a Kaye before. A dozen Kate’s of varying form - Katie, Katherine, etc. - but never a Kaye. That was good, because it was a name he could remember,... more
        • So the transfer had a name. Maverick was a sixth year in Cetus, and now Kaye knew his pronouns. The mystery, for the most part, was gone. Well, the beginning layer was no longer a mystery. Kaye... more
          • Any suggestions? - Maverick, Sun Jul 23 22:43
            Oh, so Kaye was a transfer too. Mave wouldn’t have suspected that. So far, she seemed to him to both fit in and stand out in a way that someone only could at a hodgepodge-y school like this one. RMI... more
            • I have several - Kaye, Thu Jul 27 22:09
              “Okay, well, we have to go to Pearl Street,” Kaye decided. She loved it there. It probably was Kaye’s favorite part of Rocky Mountain International. There was food and pick pocketing challenges and... more
              • Choose one and elaborate. - Maverick, Sat Aug 5 19:18
                “Sure, sounds good,” Mave agreed. He wasn’t particularly opposed to playing hooky even if the professor were more attentive to attendance. After all, what were they going to do about it, kick him out ... more
