Two's company

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 news after all, but maybe the Aquila still wasn’t feeling a hundred percent herself. It seemed for a moment that she might go back to being sort of quiet and withdrawn, but then she did just what Myffi had asked, and said more directly what was on her mind. Myfanwy was - so she had been told - a very blunt person. She didn’t see the point in being vague and evasive when you could just be honest and avoid any potential confusion.

Now that Marissa had said what was really on her mind, and even went on to explain that a previous bad experience was making her extra cautious, Myfanwy knew exactly what was going on. She could deal with that much better than strange cliches involving fictional eyelashes. “Talk all you want,” the Welsh girl grinned. “It’s nice. I’m glad I can help you feel a bit better,” she replied.

Myfanwy took another sip of her drink before lowering her cup and taking a moment to make sure it was stable enough on the ground that it wouldn’t spill and waste her drink. “I did mean it, though,” she said, matter-of-factly. “I mean, I don’t just go around kissing anyone,” she wanted to be clear about that, “but you’re always super nice and you’re attractive and it sounds like fun.” She shrugged.

“It is already awesome just hanging out and having a drink,” Myffi agreed enthusiastically, “so that’s totally fine by me, too.” She smiled. “But actually I think I’d rather kiss you, now we’ve talked about it a bit. Otherwise I’ll only spend the rest of the day wondering what it would have been like.”

  • 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
      • 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
