Looking forward to it!

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 answer with smiles and compliments. She knew every elf by name, and she never left without saying thank you. When they couldn’t get something to work, she also talked to Shifty. She used to play with him in the hallways as a kid. They played tag, which was totally unfair, since he could go through walls and she couldn’t.

The house elves managed to scrounge up some juice and sparkling water that seemed to be Myffi-friendly, as well as some cups. If they were going to mix stuff, it had to be in cups. The elves asked what kind of cups she wanted, and she eventually opted for a couple different options. She had a choice of two nice glasses and two recyclable paper ones. Plastic seemed to be something anti-Myffi. Marissa knew nothing about the girl’s lifestyle, but she wanted to try to be accommodating. She was sharing her secret alcohol, after all!

On her way to the rock wall, she stopped real quickly to check her reflection. Her red curls were slightly longer now, having grown out since her haircut, and her forest green short sleeved top that was form fitting in just the right places was a good match for her skinny jeans. Despite being panicked all day, her makeup held up real nicely. Still natural and pretty. Marissa grinned. Now this was the Aquila she remembered. It was wonderful to finally have a good day after all the bad ones.

She sat down next to Myffi once she made it to the Pitch and smiled brightly. “Yup, I picked up some cups.” She opened her bag and showed Myffi her bounty. “Wasn’t sure what kind to get, so there are options. I think the sparkling water and juice is okay?”

Myffi guaranteed that the drink was safe which was good. It was hard to imagine that Ruben was involved in creating something safe. “What’s Ruben gonna think when he finds out you’re sharing with me?” She asked with a grin. She took the glasses and paper cups out of her bag and held one out to her new friend. “I hope he’s not a jerk about it.”

    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... 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
