"Leonard isn't that strange," Mischa said. "He just tends to get into bizarre and obscure things that a lot of people would find off-putting. And, to be fair, a lot of people would find us off-putting due to our intelligence and the fact that we don't conform to gender norms. You're aggressive and unashamedly speak your mind. I'm more soft spoken and a lot of the things I like are viewed as "girly" as though that's a statement against their quality."
"Where did you find a pink Sailor Moon shirt in your size anyway?" Debora asked, looking down at the image on Mischa's T-shirt.
"I know a place online," Mischa said. "In any case, we're all outcasts of a type. Which, oddly enough, means that you have to be an outcast to fit in with us."
Kody picked up his cell, looked at the screen for a moment and sighed.
"Bad news?" Kitty asked.
"They aren't coming today," Kody said. "Apparently, something came up." He held the text message up. It read: Sorry can't come today. Fire ants mean business and ran out of super glue.
"What does that even mean?" Mischa asked.
"She's a little strange," Kody said.
"I'm sure she's really nice, though," Kitty said.
"She is," Kody said. "Don't worry about that."
"A nice but strange person," Mischa said "how unheard of."
"Especially around here," Debora added.
"Be nice you two," Kitty said.
"You've gotta admire their teamwork," Melanie said. "Even if they can be sarcastic."
"They've got Leonard and me beat in that department," Amanda said. "And we're dating."
"Hey," Leonard said. "I'm a complicated guy."
"You can't expect to just get on my wavelength." Mischa and Leonard spoke that part in unison.
"You two spend too much time together," Amanda said.
"That's ridiculous," Leonard said.
"Well, we do live together," Mischa said. "And he sneaks into my room at night when he has nightmares."
"I do no such thing!" Leonard said.
The two of them laughed.
Amanda shook her head. "Boys."
"I feel kind of sorry for the girl who eventually dates Mischa," Melanie said. "She'll feel like she's competing with Leonard."
"Does that mean that I should feel like I'm competing with Mischa?" Amanda asked.
"Or she'll be smart enough to realise that they've just got a platonic 'bromance,'" Debora said.
"She'd kind of have to be to be a good match for Mischa," Kitty said. "You'd make a good match for him." She winked at Debora.
"Oh, shut up," Debora said.
Where did Mischa get a pink Sailor Moon shirt? Why do outcasts gather together? Who is this random potential newcomer and how is she going to use super glue against fire ants? Does Kitty know something or is she taking a shot in the dark? These questions and more may or may not be answered next week in Soniczero's blog.
