Those are the options

When Myffi declared she’d been accepted, Marissa was rightfully thrilled by the news. She did look surprised though, which just went to show what a knock to a person’s confidence could do. Or was she more confused? Myffi couldn’t really tell, she didn’t know the seventh year well enough to be certain of the slight shifts in her facial expressions. She totally seemed pleased though, so that was all that mattered. “Thank you. Wow, oh my god, I could kiss you right now.” Yep, she was definitely pleased.

The potato vodka Myffi and Ruben had been brewing (Ruben kept referring to it as his, but the foul-tasting initial attempts her eager but inept assistant concocted were nothing like the perfectly drinkable moonshine they’d made under Myfanwy’s instruction, with AgriCub’s potatoes, so Ruben could go copulate) was still, as far as she knew, secret from everyone except the two students who made it, and, to Myffi’s chagrin, Kaye. If Ruben could tell a friend about it, then Myffi could, too. She wasn’t going to betray its whereabouts, but it seemed like Marissa needed some cheering up in general, and some celebrating in particular, and her organic booze was just the ticket.

Marissa confirmed she could keep a secret, and Myffi leaned in conspiratorially; she did not desire to be overheard. “Me and Ruben have a secret distillery in school,” she said barely above a whisper, her blue eyes shining with mischief, “with vegetables from the allotment.” When the strawberries started growing, Myffi was going to smuggle some of those away, too, to make a sweeter drink. “There’s a bottle of organic vodka with our name on it,” Myfanwy said. “Come on,” she stood up, and gestured for Marissa to do the same. “Meet me behind the rock wall in five minutes,” she instructed. “And if you still want to kiss me,” she winked, “that’s totally an option.”

    Did she want to go to college? Honestly, no. Marissa didn’t have much of an interest. School was school. It wasn’t something she was super great at, and she definitely didn’t know what she wanted to... more

        Somehow, the news that Ruben was involved with a secret distillery at Rocky Mountain International didn’t surprise her. What absolutely shocked her was Myffi’s involvement. Since when? That was so... more
