I think most people feel that way
Sat Feb 25, 2017 20:51

Marissa didn’t mind the silence that seemed to take over the conversation. There was a lot of thought involved in this conversation. Elijah was allowed to have that time. Marissa wanted a genuine answer from the person she roped into this talk; she wasn’t going to rush it. Besides, she was curious about someone else’s perspective. She thought wanting to do intimate things with people was a really normal part of life, but now there were two people who seemed to think otherwise. Or, well, potentially two. She still wasn’t sure what Elijah was thinking.

The redhead also shrugged at his response. “Yeah, I guess that’s all it is. Frustrating.” It didn’t feel like that, entirely, but that was probably a part of it. Marissa very much respected consent, and she’d never kiss anyone if they didn’t want her to. Besides Emmett, this was the first time Marissa could remember that no one at school seemed interested in doing things like that with her, and that’s part of what made it weird for her.

“I never really expected you to have problems with something like that.”

That made her chuckle a little. “Hey, that makes two of us.” Maybe she’d just gone through all of the people available at Rocky Mountain International. That was a little weird, too. Apparently, in the past, RMI was less of a school and more of a social network for making out and other debauchery. She’d learned way too much over the break about her dad, Rose’s mom, their family friend Lia, and Aunt Kat’s adventures. Who knows who else’s family members her parents, or family members in general, had done stuff with? It was a wonder that any of them finished enough schoolwork to graduate.

Elijah’s question brought her back to focus. She blinked. “Yeah. Things are fine, I guess. Nothing interesting to report. What about you?”

  • I'd rather not disappoint, if possible. - Elijah, Mon Feb 20 18:24
    “Ah,” Elijah said, moving to sit down on the bench two down from Marissa, the one in between holding her broom. He knew that he probably sounded like a moron or some celibate weirdo that definitely... more
    • I think most people feel that way - Marissa, Sat Feb 25 20:51
      • But how do you feel about it? - Elijah, Mon Feb 27 23:33
        Elijah could tell that Marissa wasn’t exactly thrilled with his response but there was really nothing he could do to help that. He wasn’t good at expressing these kinds of things whatsoever. Sure,... more
        • I'll keep that to myself - Marissa, Fri Mar 3 11:46
          When did the guys at Rocky Mountain International get so weird about this stuff? Marissa thought that Emmett was the most awkward guy at the school, but now she was starting to doubt that. Emmett, at ... more
          • I guess I expected that. - EJ, Mon Mar 13 00:38
            “No harm done.” Elijah said, waving his hand dismissively. It only made sense for people to assume he was with Camilla. She was his best friend after all and they did spend most if not all of their... more
            • Was this expected, though? - Marissa, Wed Mar 15 13:18
              Ah, so this was more hypothetical than not. She had a party coming up, and if Elijah had told her there was an actual person, she would’ve manipulated the pairings so he’d get a chance. Marissa threw ... more
              • Definitely not. - Elijah, Sat Mar 18 21:05
                Elijah blinked once or twice as Marissa’s first sentence settled over him. His nose wrinkled briefly as he fiddled with the brush in his fingers. He’d never considered that perhaps people were... more
