Was this expected, though?

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 parties because she loved helping people cut loose and have fun. She found it very rewarding. Being responsible for people’s joy made her so happy. She’d make sure to personally invite Camilla to the party, at least, and they could see what happened. If Elijah mentioned anyone else before the party, she’d try to get him paired up. Everyone deserved to have some fun.

“I mean, really most of the girls anywhere near my age are taken or uninterested. So really, where’s the point in wishing for options that won’t happen.”

He continued, explaining more of why he hadn’t done anything about his feelings. It made sense, sort of, but Marissa couldn’t imagine living that way. He knew how she felt. It was nice to know that she wasn’t the only person who felt that way. She definitely wasn’t labeled as a “nice girl” so she didn’t understand what it was like to be seen that way. More often than not, she received the opposite title.

She figured the weird feelings would go away eventually. “I’m not taken, and I don’t fall into the uninterested category.” Marissa shrugged, not considering anything she said as a big deal, and started packing up her broom cleaning kit. She didn’t take away the brush Elijah was playing with; she wasn’t in any kind of hurry. “Just saying, next time you get that feeling, you can talk to me about it.”

    “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

      • 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
