A party of two!
Mon May 7, 2018 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. Marissa actually thought Ruben had become a better person since dating Kaye. Sometimes she’d catch him doing sweet things for her, and they definitely didn’t mind showing off their relationship. The Aquila couch basically belonged to the two at this point.

Myffi’s opinion about Ruben was also accurate. It made her laugh. She couldn’t remember if Ruben was doing the animagus thing or not. He’d probably assume he’d be some kind of huge predator. Something impressive like a lion or some Swedish thing Marissa didn’t understand. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if Ruben had the least threatening animagus form, like a fluffy puppy? Or a teacup pig?!

Since Kaye knew about the drink, it totally seemed fair that Myffi get to tell! Marissa felt thankful that Myffi chose her to tell. Marissa added a little bit of fruit juice and sparkling water to the drink with a big smile. “Cheers to that,” she agreed happily. She really did deserve something good!

Once the two of them had mixed their beverages, Marissa clinked her glass against Myffi’s and took a sip. She was glad she thought to bring other things; this stuff was stronger than expected. It burned pleasantly in her chest and brought a light pink flush to her freckled cheeks. As did the sudden memory that Myffi also wanted to to kiss her - maybe.

It was really hard to tell if she’d been joking or not. Marissa didn’t want to initiate anything without knowing for absolutely sure. The last time she kissed someone on the Pitch she thought maybe liked her, it didn’t go well. Actually, she kissed EJ here once too, and that whole thing ended with her getting slapped. there was that one time in the locker rooms with Ruben.

Okay, Marissa and the Quidditch Pitch didn’t have a great romantic track record.

“It’s strong,” Marissa commented with a grin, “but good. Wow. You really made this?” While Myffi answered, Marissa listened and nodded, getting distracted towards the end of her new friend’s sentence. “Wait, hold on.”

The Aquila moved closer to Myffi and gently brushed a finger against her cheek. Marissa pulled her hand away and looked, then gave Myffi a sheepish grin. “Sorry, I thought I saw an eyelash or something.”

                    • 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
