Things are heating up!
“I don’t care how nice her shoes are, she’s stupid.” Tanis said, clenching her teeth as she set her cafeteria tray down on the table.
“I’m sure she doesn’t mean anything by it,” Georgia said, sliding in beside her.
Tanis’s eyes flashed. “I think she definitely means something by it.” She glared at Georgia, “You should be worried. It is your boyfriend she was just making out with.”
“Ryan is no Ben, Georgia. He was kissing her back. You understand that, don’t you.”
Paul looked at me, but I just shrugged. I wasn’t wading into the middle of this debate.
I looked around for Grace, but there was no sign of her. I sat down beside Paul.
“I’m sure there’s a reasonable explanation, Tanis. Ryan isn’t stupid.”
Georgia inhaled and looked over at me. “Tell them, Ben.”
“Why do you think I know something?”
“You always seem to have an inside track. People talk around you. So? What do you know?”
I shrugged. “I have no idea what is going on with Misty.”
“It’s like she’s turned into someone else,” muttered Paul. “Some crazy nymphomaniac or something.”
I lifted a brow at that. There were certainly draughts and spells that could do that. Who would be behind it, though?
“You’re thinking love potion, perhaps?” Tanis said, rolling her eyes.
Ryan slid onto the seat next to Paul and leaned across the table to Georgia, “Now before you condemn me, hear me out.”
Tanis gave him a ‘let me scrap you off the bottom of my shoe, first’ look.
He was focused on Georgia, as if the rest of us weren’t there.
“I don’t have a thing for Misty.”
“You’ll make out with anything with breasts, you pig,” said Tanis.
Georgia scowled at her.
“Maybe even without breasts,” Paul observed nonchalantly.
Ryan scowled at him, then turned back to Georgia. “I don’t know what happened. I was just minding my own business, and suddenly there was a tongue in my mouth!”
Tanis scoffed. “Right. Like that’s possible.”
I coughed, “Actually…”
Tanis shook her head. “You saw him. He was kissing her back.”
“I couldn’t help it!” Ryan exclaimed, wide-eyed. “I did it automatically. It’s not as if I like her or anything!”
“You are so dead,” muttered Paul with a whistle.

This is a ridiculous pace! Working all day and writing for 4 or 5 hours off and on all evening is exhausting! Only 2986 tomorrow to finish the challenge though! Yay! 🙂
