I'm not sure you really feel bad about it
Sun Apr 16, 2017 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 bowl of cereal in the Diner. She’d maybe been a second year at that point or third; she couldn’t remember. She did remember Justin telling her that she looked angry when, really, Marissa had just been tired because she’d spent most of the night working on a project she’d ignored until the last minute. It wasn’t until he told her that she was mad that she actually got mad. He'd ended up covered in cereal, and she'd ended up apologizing, but that's how she learned that she did not like other people telling her how she felt.

So, when Camilla very suddenly, bluntly, told her, “You seem annoyed, Marissa,” the red-head felt a genuine surge of annoyance bubble to the surface. She hadn’t been annoyed before. She’d felt awkward, maybe, and a little uncomfortable, because she didn’t really know how to talk to Camilla. The annoyance was there now, since Camilla somehow managed to speak it into being. So that was fun.

“No, I’m fine,” Marissa shrugged a little. She was not about to talk to Camilla about all of her weird feelings. Really, the Cetus was the last person who could help her. By now, she knew that her confusing feelings for Danny were actual ‘oh my god I think I like you’ feelings that she currently wasn’t able to pursue. Camilla probably could, since she was a good pureblood girl or whatever, even though Danny broke it off with her, too. Danny admitted to having feelings for Marissa, which was nice, but he clearly didn’t feel that that made her worth going after. Maybe it was her reputation or their friendship or simply the pureblood politics. If it was the latter, Camilla was always going to have the advantage there, which was so stupid, because Camilla and Elijah were clearly into each other.

Reeling her brain in from whatever spiral it just went down, she put the earbud back in her ear, but she didn’t start playing her music yet. “Look, it’s nice of you to offer to talk, but I just want to run. Or fly, maybe? That’s why I came out here. Not for…” she waved her hand around to try and indicate whatever weirdness was currently happening. “This. I’ve got enough going on.”

      • 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

            “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

              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

                  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

                      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
