Marietta proves herself but Lucifer is already gone.
Marietta sat there, staring at the spot, Lucifer formerly stood. She didn’t understand it.
He clearly doesn’t like seeing me with Chad, an yet he does nothing. Says nothing to stop it. Stupid boy.
Marietta felt Chad’s hand on her chin as he pulled her closer. He put his forehead against hers and softly spoke to her with poisonous words. “You know, you really are so beautiful. Any guy would be lucky to have you.” He licked his lips, like a snake readying itself to strike for the kill.
He put his mouth close to hers, leaving little space. After a slight hesitation, meant to tempt her, he began closing the gap. Before their lips met, Marietta pulled away giggling.
Chad looked at her in surprise. Marietta smiled at him. “If you want to kiss me you have to wait. I won’t kiss someone I do not love.” She patted him on the head and took his hand to pull him up. “We should go. Class will be starting soon.”
Chad followed her, confident he would get to her eventually, one way or another.
