Rose Farnon
Sliding right in
Mon Jul 24, 2017 09:52

Thus far Rose wasn't a huge fan of the slumber party she and Marissa had put together. She had gotten dressed up for it - soft gray sweatpants and a lacy teal camisole with fluffy black slippers - which was partially because she wanted to look cute and partially because her usual sleep attire (underwear and an oversize shirt) was not something she wanted to be wandering around the school in. She had brought a sleeping bag and a pillow, but before she had gotten a chance to snag a good spot, Rose had been stopped by Heather Bartel and sucked into a conversation. Rose didn't strictly mind Heather, although she found her annoying at times, but her plan had been to find Ruben or Holland or even Emmett and spend some time with them. Danny would have been on that list except that this was the absolutely perfect opportunity for Marissa to hang out with him relatively undisturbed. However, by the time Rose freed herself from Heatherís babbling, she realized that was not a plan she could reasonably execute.

Danny and Marissa were together as planned (Rose did an internal fist-pump of excitement), but so were Holland and Ruben, which Rose was significantly less excited about. There was technically nothing wrong with Ruben spending time with Holland, but Rose had complicated feelings about Ruben that weren't really calmed by him spending time with his ex. It also looked like Holland was painting Rubenís nails, which weirded Rose out a little bit. Nail polish was not something she really got behind, and she wasn't sure how she felt about nail polish on Ruben. It didn't seem practical for someone who did as much punching things as he did, which indicated that Ruben was only doing it to spend time with Holland or get their attention or something. Rose scowled and looked around some more.

It looked like Emmett and Russell were talking too and that wasn't something Rose wanted to get in the middle of. She wasn't a huge fan of Russell. He was kind of creepy and always carried a mouse around, and Marissa kept insisting on including him in things. Not like this party - everyone had been invited, even Camilla . Rose had wanted to argue Marissa out of that decision but after their fight last year she didn't want to bring it up. Rose still glared at the older girl when they passed in the hallways and physically situated herself between Camilla and Marissa when the three of them were in the same room, but Marissa had forgiven Camilla for some reason so Rose couldn't do much else. So instead Rose entertained herself by fetching herself some popcorn and working at turning the snack into different shapes midair, without using her wand. Roseís wandless and nonverbal magic had improved drastically in the past year and she was almost ready to start the ritual that would help her determine her animagus form. She was excited for that.

Not too long after Rose had started entertaining herself with popcorn, she looked up just in time to see Russell walk away from Emmett towards Ruben and Holland. The blonde raised two well-shaped eyebrows. Interesting.

Letting the popcorn collapse back into the bowl, she put her food aside and casually wandered over to Emmett. ďWhat was that about?Ē Rose questioned, tucking some of her flyaway hair behind her ear.

    At Emmettís insinuation of private clothing-optional sleepovers, Russell could feel his face getting warm again. Oh. Oh . His mouth opened and closed without doing any word things. He didnít really... more

        Wait, what? Holy crap, Russell was doing it. This was gonna happen. Emmet could hardly believe his eyes as the Cetus less-than-gracefully approached Holland and Ruben. This was it. Oh my God. But... more

          Emmettís startled response made Rose snort in amusement. He was really absorbed in - Rose glanced over at Russell, Holland, and Ruben - whatever that was. It didnít exactly surprise her. With all the ... more
