Not as far as I’m concerned

“Sounds like it wouldn’t have been the most successful venture without you,” Leo said. Myffi thought Ruben was probably not interested in success beyond producing something that would get him drunk - a feat he had accomplished without her input - but she appreciated Leo’s sentiments all the same. The seventh year had never intended to be the supplier of drugs and alcohol at her school - she had only ever wanted to learn and to make friends - but she didn’t mind that it had happened. These accolades might disappear with her when Myffi graduated, along with Meatless Mondays and recycling campaigns, but she hoped AgriClub, at least, would be ongoing. She hadn’t talked about it directly with them yet, but perhaps between Nolan, Leo and Marley the upper years could continue to maintain the allotment.

Myfanwy was sure Leo’s expression dipped when she mentioned Ruben (and Marissa - they had never talked about Myffi’s brief fling with the former Aquila. Myffi followed Leo’s lead by not mentioning it, but if he ever did ask she would tell him the truth: she hooked up with Marissa a few times but there was nothing it in beyond that. There was never any relationship, not like she enjoyed with Leo) but she had not been expecting him to embrace this knowledge. Leo and Ruben has never gotten along… unsurprising, as both of them made it difficult for people to like them, in their own ways. Yet despite this turn, between them, the couple managed to keep hold of their earlier excitement. “Absolutely, count me in,” Leo said.

It was totally going to suck when they reached the end of the year (although she wasn’t going to Wales ’til the end of the summer, so she was definitely planning on seeing Leo a lot in California before she left, too) but that just made it all the more important they make the most of the rest of the year. Myffi took both of Leo’s hands in hers again, and pulled them around her back, drawing her closer to Leo. Extricating her own arms she proceeded to drape them over each of his shoulders. “I was hoping you’d say that. Drinking secret moonshine with my boyfriend is exactly the way I want to spend the rest of my day.” She kissed him until temporarily satisfied, then took Leo’s hand and lead him away to the secluded copse where Ruben had first hidden his booze.

    Marissa and Ruben. Marissa and Ruben. Hearing their names uttered in the same sentence sent Leo’s mind reeling down dangerous territory. He had long suspected that Myffi and Ruben’s friendship might... more
