”I’ve had a lot on my mind.”

Rose turned, propping herself up on one elbow, and rested her cheek against her palm. It was not the most usual of things for Marissa to be this serious. Usually when they had to talk, it was about something that one of their yearmates had done, or some other super juicy gossip about someone in the school. It was very rarely that Marissa had anything very specific on her mind.

“Okay, spill,” Rose demanded as a blonde curl fell into her face. She pushed it back.

First thing - awesome. Since her adventure over the summer where she’d appeared randomly at the doorstep of her mom’s old friend who was apparently the best friend of the aunt of her best friend and the mother of her boyfriend - which somehow they’d all managed to completely miss - Rose had been intending to break into Garen’s office to find more information on her mother when she was in school. She knew Garen kept files on all of his students and knowing Garen, Rose was pretty sure that just because her mom had graduated forever ago didn’t mean that the files weren’t still there. After all, magical filing cabinets were pretty much limitless. The plan had largely revolved around making sure Garen wasn’t around to catch her, and the perfect time would be the date night that he and Professor McKindy had every other week, which Marissa usually babysat for. Sometimes Rose came along, because Madeleine was just too cute and Drew was a lot of fun, almost old enough to come to RMI.

Second thing -

“Woah, what?” Rose was nonplussed. Of all the things she had thought Marissa would say, the things she had actually said were not on the list. “What?!”

It wasn’t that Rose had a whole bunch of issues with people who weren’t straight. After all, Marissa was pretty willing to make out with anyone willing regardless of gender, and Rose herself wasn’t sure how straight she was. She had dated Josh, but mostly because she liked him as a person and had felt kind of like she should try dating for once since Marissa did such a lot of it. Well, dating was maybe a strong word for what Marissa did. But anyway, Rose was pretty down with people not being straight, but that didn’t make sense. What? How?

“What?” Rose repeated for the third time before realizing she was running in circles. “Okay. Okay. So. My mom,” she paused, then proceeded slowly, “slept with your dad and was also...something...with your aunt?” The fifth year blinked hazel eyes, confused. “And then we ended up as roommates?” All right, that was too much. Rose started laughing and collapsed onto her back again.

    “So what prompted the dance party?” “What prompted it?” Marissa said, trying to catch her breath. She’d followed Rose’s lead and landed on her back at the end of the random dance party. The red head... more

        The surprise was expected. Marissa had been surprised when she found out, too. She’d been so surprised that she couldn’t leave it alone. She wasn’t crazy enough to ask Aunt Kat. Marissa noticed a... more

          Rose shrugged her shoulders against the soft comforter on the bed. Honestly, it was kind of weird to hear that her mom wasn’t straight because clearly her mother had some sort of relationship with... more

            Rose really wasn’t upset or mad or anything. Awesome. Marissa was used to being well liked by most people. She didn’t mind when people were mad at her if they were people she didn’t care about. What... more
