Well, if the mini skirt fits...

Wh… what?

Wait, okay, so rewind. What had even just happened? Emmett and Rose danced, then she kissed him - Rose Farnon kissed him, Emmett Lawrence - and then he stood there like an idiot, as often he did. Now she was… acting like nothing happened?

He knew he wasn’t moving, but Emmett sorta felt like he had spent too much time spinning around in circles, lightheaded and confused. He very frequently felt the latter, what with his total Emmett ineptitude and the occasional weirdness of his peer group, but this was Exceptionally Confusing. His fragile teenage brain couldn’t handle all this stuff, although while he stared stupidly at Rose, he couldn’t help but feel like he had put the end of his feelings for Marissa behind him. Whether he had any for Rose, he was uncomfortable unsure, but he supposed that maybe this was progress. It was, wasn’t it?

Emmett almost laughed. What was new? “Oh, you know, same old same old, although, funny story, this girl just kissed me and then acted all normal about it and now I don’t know what I’m doing with my life, or even less so than usual, anyway” was probably not an acceptable answer, although it was the most true and what immediately sprang to mind. Like, what the hell, Rose? “Not much,” he shrugged with forced casualness. “School’s whatever, and we already talked about Quidditch, and-”

“Why did you just kiss me?” He heard the words as he spoke them and half glanced around to see who had interrupted him before realizing it was him, changing the direction of his sentence. It was visible on his face that he had startled even himself. “I mean, like,” he clarified, “I’m totally cool with it, that was fun and I’m completely cool with doing it again at basically any point in the future if you wanted to, but, like, why? Honestly I wasn’t even sure that you like me very much, let alone… well, that.”

        Although Emmett began answering her question like a normal person, he - completely out of nowhere - started babbling about how she had kissed him. Rose blinked hazel eyes at the fourth year, a little ... more
