Like the reptile? Kirby asked.
Can I have this dance? Penn asked, sounding more like a demand than a question, and then she was right next to them.Harper looked up and pulled away from Daniel a little bit, so it would be easier to see Penn. But he kept his arms around her, unwilling to let Harper get too far away.
Im dancing with my girlfriend right now, so no, he told Penn firmly. You cant have this dance. And before you ask, you cant have the next one, either. Harper has reserved me for the entire night. Shes actually reserved me all the way until Monday, so…All right, all right. Marcy came out of nowhere to save the day and moved in between Daniel and Penn. If youre really desperate for a dance, Penn, Ill dance with you. As long as you promise not to try any hanky-panky.Penn crossed her arms over her chest and looked past Marcy, her dark gaze locked directly on Daniel. Ive changed my mind, Daniel. I want you tonight.
Didnt you hear the man? Marcy asked. Hes booked up. Take a number.Livs familiar laugh came from behind her, and Harper glanced back to see her former roommate hanging on to Kirby. Thea stood a few feet away, looking bored as usual, while she poured herself a glass of punch at the refreshment table.
Marcy, thank you, but why dont you go with Kirby before Liv eats him? Harper pointed over to where Liv was flirting. She appreciated Marcys help, but if things were going to go down with Penn, shed rather have her out of harms way anyhow.
Dammit. Hes like catnip to these witches, Marcy muttered as she walked off to deal with the situation.Liv hissed like a vampire being sprayed with holy water, turning her rage on Gemma.
Knock it off, Liv! Penn yelled, and her voice seemed to echo through everything.Liv covered her ears with her hands, and Gemma winced. The people who were standing closest to them shook their heads and looked around, as if they expected to see something shouting in the skies.
When Liv dropped her hands, her face had gone back to normal. Her eyes had even shifted back to dull brown. She did not look happy, though. Her frown, her slouch, even the sulk in her eyes, all reminded Daniel of a little kid who had just gotten a spanking.I was fine, Liv insisted, and pulled her arm away from Gemma. I was just having some fun.
