Aww does that mean you like me?

With a somewhat unattractive snort, Rose rolled her eyes at Danny. It seemed weird for his mum to be coming to see him this early on a Sunday, but she supposed that it was probably as good a time as any considering that Danny had things to do during other times of the week, and presumably Claudia had to be accounted for as well. Rose wasn’t entirely sure what Claudia did, except for inexplicably be friends with Connor. Well, at least Connor had one friend. Connor could be insufferable, but he probably didn’t deserve to have a less healthy social life than Dade did. Rose personally found Dade to be delightful and a little sweetie, but he could grump with the best of them and often misplaced the little tact he had been born with. It was kind of cute that he was now friends with Kit. Sometimes Rose considered the possibility of him and Kit dating, but suspected that was unlikely to happen, if only because she wasn’t sure Kit had the attention span for that sort of thing.

“Andy screwed us over again,” Rose griped. “You would think that someone already at university would be able to count and write numbers down, but you’d be wrong apparently.” It wasn’t the first time she complained about Andy. Aside from a mild incompetence, he also just annoyed her on a personal level. She had informed Danny at least once that she might even prefer Camilla to Andy, even though Rose had been known to smack Danny upside the head on occasion when she came up. Despite last term’s nonsense and his relationship with Marissa, Danny seemed less inclined to toe party line when it came to Rampant Bitch. Of course, the only person who had really agreed with Rose on that particular situation was Ruben and now Ruben was a problem too. On the plus side, Rose was pretty sure that Danny had never been a particular fan of Ruben and then their whole altercation had happened so at the very least Danny had the appropriate opinions about something.

“Anyway, what’s the special occasion, that your mum is so keen to see you on a Sunday morning?” Rose wiggled pale eyebrows at Danny. “Giving her blessing to you and Marissa?” It was about fifty-fifty as to whether Marissa would be up early or late on any given day. Rose had gotten good over the years at not waking her up on the way out in the morning. “Or has Claudia finally got a boyfriend and it’s a meet-the-family event?” That made Rose giggle a little bit. Claudia having a boyfriend seemed almost as unlikely as Dade having one. Or - well, Rose supposed that Dade might want a boyfriend someday, after what had happened over break. Holland had dated Ruben, after all.

Well regardless, her brothers dating anyone would be weird and Rose might be obligated to threaten them in a suitably older-sibling way. It wouldn’t be very long before they were taller than she was, Rose was pretty sure, but they would always be her little brothers.

    A distraction did arrive, in the shape of Rose. Not that she was as distracting right now as she had the potential to be, like when she was in her bathing suit (they were both up early enough to swim ... more

        Danny offered Rose a consolatory grimace as she explained about Andy. It seemed like he was lucky to have not been hexed by Rose already for his apparent incompetence (although he supposed he had no... more
        • That's a diplomatic response - Rose, Sat Nov 25 09:53
          It was easy for Rose to catch Danny’s discomfort when she mentioned having Marissa meet his mother, which she noted for the future, but didn’t say anything about. Marissa was a pureblood,... more

            Rose’s un-sugar-coated declaration that she didn’t have the patience for him caused danny to grin; even if she had noticed that he was avoiding introducing his mother to Marissa, she wasn’t going to... more
