I can't ignore a tag! It calls me.

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 body at Rocky Mountain International was way more active than people might expect for an underground magic school, so there was almost always someone on the Pitch.

She’d momentarily hoped Elijah might be there. The last time they ran into each other when she was having Confusing Danny Feelings, he’d ended up kissing her, and she wouldn’t mind picking up where they left off. One of her Quidditch players, Ethan Addams, had tried to persuade her into some questionable actions while looking for something for Footloose backstage. That had been before Danny broke things off, though, and she hadn’t been interested. Plus, the way he suggested meant that he was way more interested in the rumor mill’s version of Marissa instead of the red-head herself. They were pretty similar people, but there were some differences between the real version and what people made up.

Still, she would have preferred taking up Ethan on his offer than spending time with Camilla. Marissa didn’t have a very high opinion of the girl before Danny had hooked up with the Cetus at her party; that hadn’t helped change her opinion. From their very brief interactions, Marissa found her mildly annoying at best.

“Oh, okay,” Marissa blinked. If Camilla was just going to leave, then it’d be fine. She wasn’t in the mood for a conversation even with people she really enjoyed; she wouldn’t know how to talk to Camilla right now. “Bye, then.” She moved to put her earbuds back in and start jogging, but then Camilla kept talking. And she was being so nice. Damn it.

You were amazing in Footloose, Marissa. Congratulations on the great show you guys put up. It was really entertaining.”

“Um… thank you,” she gave Camilla a small smile and shifted her weight uncomfortably. She should have gone to the theater instead and started re-organizing the prop room. People were always so ready to get out of the theater to whatever post-show celebrations they wanted that they never put things back in the right places during strike. She could be fixing that right now. “I didn’t know you came. I never pegged you for a theater- oh, well, right, Elijah was in it. He was good, too.”

  • 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

      • 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
                        • I made a mistake - Marissa, Wed Apr 19 20:17
                          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
