But what if I don't wanna?
Sat Apr 15, 2017 16:23

Marissa shouldered her broom with a frustrated sigh. Footloose was over, which was both good and bad. She’d worked really hard on the choreography, and it had been such a fun show to do with Nick. It was his last show at Rocky Mountain International. They definitely killed it. She couldn’t imagine doing a show next year without him, but she was glad this one was over. It was one less thing to focus on at this point in the school year.

However, it was one less thing to focus on, and that was a problem. With one less thing to put her energy towards, that energy had to go somewhere, and today, it was going towards Danny Dubois. Or, well, the lack of Danny. He’d broken off their friends with benefits thing, which she worked really hard to understand. It wasn’t her fault that he was being an idiot. They both clearly liked each other. They had excellent chemistry. They didn’t even have to date or be anything official – she knew the pureblood thing was a problem for him – but Danny just wasn’t ready for that, and she had to respect it. It was frustrating and stupid and made her cry once, which was honestly just more annoying than sad, but she respected it.

She’d talked to Holland about it, and she’d talked to Rose. She hadn’t told either of them that it made her actually sad for a few reasons. She figured it’d pass with some time, since these were not normal Marissa feelings. Plus, she didn’t want it getting back to Danny, and she knew that Rose would make sure it got back to Danny in some less than pleasant ways.

Anyway, she had some extra time now, and she didn’t want to spend it having Weird Feelings and no one to take care of them. She and Holland had fixed the perm disaster, so her hair was its normal crazy instead of that monstrosity. Marissa was being extra careful with it though, so she avoided the pool. She’d already danced earlier that day, and she wanted some variety in her activity. That led her to throw on a grey tank top that read “World’s Okayest Runner”, some purple shorts, and some sneakers. She grabbed her broom, charmed her already existing makeup to stay no matter how much her freckled skin started to sweat, set her charmed iPod to shuffle through her Mind at WERK playlist, and made her way to the Pitch. She wasn’t sure if she was going to run or fly yet, but at least she knew where she was going.

She would have jogged to the Pitch, but jogging was awkward with a broom, so she just walked at a brisk pace. She bounced a little with each step, getting into the groove of her playlist, and hardly noticed when she made it to the Pitch. She set her broom down in the stands, deciding to run around to the music for a little bit before taking to the air. She didn’t realize she had company until she was actually staring at Camilla. Marissa blinked her green eyes and took out one of her earbuds so she could hear.

“Sorry, I missed all of that. Music,” she twirled the earbud around her finger. Camilla was possibly one of the reasons Danny broke things off with her. Marissa knew that they hooked up at the party, and then they continued to do some stuff after. She had a pretty neutral opinion of Camilla before, but she couldn’t help having a slightly negative opinion of her now. It wasn’t Camilla’s fault; she hadn’t really done anything to Marissa. It just…was a thing the red head needed to deal with. “What did you say?”

    Things weren't going like she would have liked. No, in fact things were going down a spiral of Very Bad Things and Camilla was getting crushed by everything - or so it felt like a very big brick was... more

      • You dont have to.. - Camilla, Sat Apr 15 17:32
        Camilla had gotten used to run without any kind of distraction - in this case music - since she used running to think. She had tried to get used to the muggle contraption that Marissa was using, but... more
        • I can't ignore a tag! It calls me. - Marissa, Sun Apr 16 20:57
          If she was being honest, Marissa wouldn’t have objecting to finding company out on the Pitch. A lot of her friends exercised, so she wouldn’t have been surprised to find someone out here. The student ... more
          • My bad - Camilla, Sun Apr 16 21:48
            Camilla looked at Marissa becoming a bit annoyed with the younger girl as her attitude became apparent with each passing second. The Ceti had no idea what was her problem, but Camilla was sure she... more
            • I'm not sure you really feel bad about it - Marissa, Sun Apr 16 22:09
              Marissa never liked it when people told her that she seemed to be feeling a certain way. She didn’t know why, but it was just a pet peeve. Once, Justin told her she looked mad while she was eating a... more
              • Maybe I do, but just a bit - Camilla, Mon Apr 17 11:52
                This exactly why Camilla preferred to stay away from most people, because even when one tried to be nice you ended being treated somewhat badly. It wasn't that Marissa was being outright rude towards ... more
                • Only a little bit, then - Marissa, Mon Apr 17 13:12
                  “Thanks, me too,” Marissa sighed. Usually, she would have dealt with her feelings by dancing it out in her dorm room with Rose. Knowing her best friend, that would not have been the best idea right... more
                  • It would be petty of me, really. - Camilla, Mon Apr 17 18:01
                    “I need to pick up some things and then we are going to the movies,” she answered simply. Camilla had been okay with them not having their benefits anymore, Danny was just a distraction from who she... more
                    • We wouldn't want to be petty. - Marissa, Tue Apr 18 14:15
                      So they were running some errands and then seeing a movie. Marissa knew that it wasn’t a date, because Danny was a very honest person and would have said if he was taking Camilla on dates . Still, a... more
                      • No, we wouldn't - Camilla , Tue Apr 18 18:25
                        The blonde listened as Marissa asked her if her outing with Danny was a date, as a smidge of realization passed through her mind as something told her that the redhead could have a crush on her... more
                        • And yet, here we are! - Marissa, Tue Apr 18 21:35
                          She wasn’t too sure what it was she said, but apparently she’d broken Camilla. Marissa wasn’t being mean or teasing or anything. Elijah being a good kisser was a fact, so she stated it. He was also... more
                          • You followed me! - Camilla, Tue Apr 18 22:24
                            The blonde was angry, but mostly Camilla was beyond sad. She couldn't really describe her feelings, but she was more than sure that they were Bad. It was combination of a lot of factors, and it... more

                              Marissa wasn’t expecting to get slapped. It was sudden, and it hurt. One moment, she was touching Camilla’s arm. The next, Camilla was saying all of these things, and Marissa couldn’t process them at ... more
                      • No, we are above that, yes. - Camilla, Tue Apr 18 18:18
