Rose snorted when Danny responded with a question about if there had to be a reason.

“There doesn’t have to be one,” she responded, mentally tacking on a friendly ‘you idiot’. “But you haven’t exactly made a habit of inviting me over before.” Rose stuck her tongue out at Danny. Her feelings on her yearmate were a little bit on and off, often depending on what he’d done recently to annoy her, but she did like Danny overall and would be more than happy to see more of him over the summer. She probably couldn’t wheedle him into letting Marissa stay as well, but they could maybe meet up somewhere in - well, somewhere. Even after five years at RMI, the English girl hadn’t particularly caught up with American geography. She knew Danny lived in New Orleans, which she also knew was in Louisiana, but Louisiana could have been on the moon as far as Rose was concerned.

Ah yes and there it was. Danny wanted Rose to be his date? Yeah okay she was down for that, even before Danny pointed out that his mum had been at school with hers.

“Robes or dresses?” Rose asked very seriously, meeting Danny’s gaze. She was totally in for all of those things (she did like dressing up and parties, even if they were boring ones with boring people), but clearly Danny felt bad asking, which meant Rose could have some fun with him if she wanted. “Big difference.” the Aquila added, still straight-faced. She had no idea if Danny would actually believe her answer hinged on the question she was asking, but if he did that would be fantastic. Messing with people was one of her favorite pastimes and she could use the boost to her spirits at the moment. And although Rose was pretty sure she was being asked solely because she was the only relatively well-behaved pureblood girl his age that Danny knew, she still felt a little better because she had been the one he asked.

        • Matching you - Rose, Mon Jun 19 13:24
          “Robes it is!” Rose said definitively, giving her hot cereal a stir. By this point ‘hot’ might have been a little bit of a strong adjective for the congealing lumps in the bowl in front of her; the... more

            He tried not to grin when Rose made her answer which was - in a weird and roundabout way - her agreeing to play engagement at the end of the summer. He thought he did a pretty good job of keeping a... more

              Rose snickered at Danny’s response to her inquiry. She didn’t bother to hide it - by this point, Danny knew that she could find him infinitely entertaining on the right day, and the severity of his... more
