It was totally thoughtful of Marissa to consider Myffi’s dietary requirements when she suggested getting mixers from the kitchen. The sixth year only hesitated for a second, because honestly she didn’t really like to consume anything from the school kitchens if she had the choice - and it wasn’t necessary on this occasion, especially as she had a bottle of organic apple juice in her room at that moment - but she didn’t want to turn down Marissa’s sweet offer. Besides, she had to go and retrieve the vodka. “Sparkling water and fruit juice. No additives please,” she requested.

Five minutes later, as promised, Myfanwy had retrieved the homebrewed alcohol, concealed for now in the organic canvas bag she usually carried with her, and was waiting behind the rock wall as promised. Her tie-dyed dress - mostly pink, orange and green swirls - was spread about her legs, and she’d wrapped a faded purple knitted shawl around her shoulders - it wasn’t cold out on the pitch, but in the shadow of the rock wall, the Lyra felt chilly without the extra layer.

She was excited to be hanging out with Marissa - they’d never really done that before. Myffi sometimes did things with Rose (like if their shifts on Pearl Street finished at the same time they might walk back to school together, or on the occasional Myfanwy decided to eat in the Diner, sometimes she would sit with Rose) and Marissa was also there, but the two girls had never spent time together just the two of them, that Myffi could remember. She definitely hadn’t thought about kissing her before, but now she mentioned it, it might be fun. Whatever else happened, they were definitely going to drink moonshine and celebrate Marissa getting into college.

“Did you bring some cups?” Myffi asked with a smile as Marissa arrived. She assumed that as the other girl was bringing mixers, it would occur to her to bring containers for them, too. Myfanwy pulled the bottle from her bag and laid it down on the ground beside it. “I promise it’s safe, I’ve drunk it before,” she said.

    • Looking forward to it! - Marissa Kendrick, Sun May 6 12:52
      Marissa grew up at Rocky Mountain International, so the house elves knew her very well. They also knew at this point not to question why she needed things, because she’d always skirt around the... more
      • Getting the party started - Myfanwy, Mon May 7 10:55
        Myfanwy had already decided that whatever drinks Marissa provided would be acceptable. She didn’t like to imbibe pesticides, and would infinitely prefer planet friendly food whenever it was... more
        • A party of two! - Marissa, Mon May 7 12:14
          “True,” Marissa agreed with a laugh. She and Ruben were pretty okay now. Myffi was just at school, so most of what happened between the redhead and the other Aquila probably flew over her head.... more
          • It’s a good number - Myffi, Mon May 7 15:12
            “Cheers,” Myffi agreed as she clinked her mixed drink against Marissa’s. She took a sip and enjoyed the fizz tickling her tongue before the moonshine made it tingle. Marissa seemed to like it, too,... more
            • A great number - Marissa, Tue May 8 15:26
              See, this is why she tested the waters by moving a little closer. Myffi was clearly freaked out. Oh no . As soon as she noticed the other girl get a little uncomfortable, Marissa moved back too,... more
              • Two's company - Myffi, Tue May 8 15:49
                Marissa moved back a little, and that was better. She’d definitely seemed down earlier, when Myffi found her in the rec centre, and she had cheered up a bit since the envelope had brought her good... more
                • We don't need a crowd - Marissa, Tue May 8 16:19
                  And just like that, things felt a little better. This was almost familiar territory. Marissa felt more like herself like this. She’d spent plenty of time at Lia Harper’s club over midterm, and she... more
                  • Not right now - Myffi, Fri May 11 04:12
                    Myfanwy hadn’t done much kissing before. Before she’d left Wales, Gareth had kissed her, and that had been fun. She’d fancied him a bit, but so had Alison, so neither of them had ever done anything... more
                    • Agreed - Marissa , Sat May 19 20:14
                      “That was nice.” Marissa smiled in agreement. It was definitely nice. She missed doing stuff like this. Being with Danny was nice. The Aquila enjoyed being someone’s person, in a way she never really ... more
                      • Yup - Myffi, Sun May 20 16:00
                        Even though she’d been so excited to get her acceptable letter, Marissa seemed like she didn’t want to talk about college at all. She starting getting all frowny and withdrawn again. Myffi wished she ... more
                        • Glad we agree! - Marissa, Mon May 21 15:58
                          Marissa resisted the urge to shrug off Myffi’s very valid point. The other girl wasn’t the first to tell her this, and she wouldn’t be the last. The red-head knew that grades weren’t everything. They ... more
