Not interested in sharing with you

Kaye’s eyes narrowed slightly. The motion was so small that it may have been imperceptible to someone who didn’t know the Aquila well. It was true that Ruben had wandered around the school in practically nothing, but this picture was even closer to nothing than that. A very pleasant flush crept back to her cheeks and her heart bounced around her chest. That idiot Swede knew how to get her to miss him even more. She’d missed him when he’d been camping with Myffi, too. What had she seen then?

It was also a possibility that Myffi was talking about someone else. Who had she’d gotten all naked with? She didn’t really understand Myffi’s life outside of RMI. She just assumed that the girl lived in trees and scavenged for the gifts of the Earth. And she had a tough time imagining anyone besides Myffi that way, so her brain just conjured up a bunch of Myffi’s whenever she thought about the hippie’s home life. Who would Garden and Chill with the other student anyway?

Well, Marissa Kendrick, clearly, but Kaye doubted that she had no limits in what kind of chill she’d engage. Carrot Top must be having a blast in college. Kaye started refining her list over the summer when she’d been particularly bored. She had no doubt about being accepted. Between her straight and practically effortless O’s, her gay, interracial (and pureblood disgraced, if it was a magical program) dads, her hair loss, and her lupus, no one was going to reject her. Coming as a surprise to no one, her dads wanted her to stay close by, even though she was states away from them already at Rocky Mountain International.

She didn’t know what she wanted to do, but she had plenty time to think about that with how boring RMI was now without the most recent graduates. Perhaps she’d go into professional thievery, like a magical James Bond. Or she’d figure out how to hack into technology using magic without whatever she was attacking going crazy. She could always be a stylist as her cover and continue her interesting life in secret. Whatever she was going to do, it certainly didn’t involve living in the woods.

A quick glance at Myffi’s breakfast let Kaye know that she had no interest in sampling her food, so she placed Ruben’s picture back in the envelope. The mariachi music faded away, and she imagined that the Photo Ruben was wondering why she put him away so soon.

“So what have you been doing to keep yourself entertained around here?” She found herself asking. Wow. She was so bored she wanted to know how Myffi had fun. These were clearly the end times.

    Myfanwy had prepared breakfast in her dormitory that morning. She was making more effort than usual to be in the Diner at mealtimes, feeling some sort of responsibility to the badge on her robes and... more

        “So what have you been doing to keep yourself entertained around here?” Kaye asked. Myfanwy tried not to look too surprised as she started eating her breakfast; she had never been friends with Kaye,... more
        • I usually do - Kaye, Wed Aug 8 20:22
          Well, it sounded like Myffi had plenty to keep her busy here after all. In a moment of absolute boredom, Kaye briefly considered getting a job on Pearl Street. She did not feel suited for typical... more
          • I call that selfish - Myffi, Tue Aug 14 06:26
            Myffi breathed a sigh of relief as Kaye confirmed that she wasn’t going to tattle about the distillery. It probably had more to do with Ruben than any sort of alignment with Myffi (or maybe her... more
            • Eh, words - Kaye, Sun Aug 19 10:58
              “Wait, shut the eff up,” Kaye blinked her heavily lined blue eyes in complete surprise. “There were brownies? And you shared them with Nolan and the peg leg didn’t even save me a bite? The traitor!”... more

                Again, Kaye swore near her, but this time Myfanwy noticed that Kaye wasn’t swearing at her, exactly. Just in her presence. That was somehow less offensive than having her yearmate swear at her... more

                  Kaye really liked the idea of falling into this bizarre friend group. Leo, Myffi, and Nolan weren’t exactly something that made sense, but it didn’t feel wrong. They all meshed together in their own... more
