Just a hunch.

“I was just looking for Marissa.”


Emmett paused. A part of him instinctively wanted to be jealous and accusatory, but he less than politely told that part of himself to cram it. For one thing, that kind of jealousy would be dumb even if he was still in a relationship with her, which he wasn’t, and that made it even dumber. Marissa didn’t belong to him or anything. She was a people. But anyway, Danny and Marissa were friends, just like he considered himself friends with Danny, and how he was still friends with Marissa. He felt like he was doing a better job at not being a weirdo around her, suppressing his awkward as he tried to think about it less. (Which made no sense, but, like, fifteen-year-old boys rarely had the best logic.)

But yeah. So he inwardly shut that bit of his brain up and outwardly shrugged in response. “Yeah, she does,” he confirmed. “But I haven’t seen her, so if she was here today, I must’ve missed her. Sorry.” Emmett wasn’t quite sure what he was apologizing for, but he did it anyway.

“Something important?” he inquired casually. Emmett reached over and grabbed his script before standing upright. “Because if not and you’ve got time to kill, I think I could really go for a burger. Want to go down to Pearl Street with me? My treat.” If Danny wasn’t interested, he figured he’d go pester Holland or something. He just liked having some company.

        The way Emmett answered that he hadn’t seen Marissa suggested to Danny that the fourth year had been in the theatre for a substantial part of the day. He might have been interpreting it incorrectly,... more
