Jackson felt the need to reiterate that he was not, by any means jealous. That this feeling of irritation was anything but that and that this guy could do nothing at all. He kept reassuring himself of that as honestly that sort of feeling wasn't one he wanted to have and the thought of a 'green-eyed monster' rearing its ugly head over some asshole flirting with Melanie was a little ridiculous to say the least. He could trust her. He really could and he knew just from her expression alone that she wasn't all too impressed with this guy's antics whatsoever.
Nonetheless it was hard for him not to grit his teeth and roll his eyes at guy. He really was trying to maintain his composure, but that shit was hard when the kid was sitting so fucking close to Melli in the first place. To add to his annoyance the guy was clearly flirting with her cousin right then and there and that was just some fucked up bullshit right there. Who did that sort of thing? What kind of asshole was he? Really just everything about him pissed him off and it sent him into a terrible mood, sulking and pouting like a petulant fucking child.
At the very least, he was sure that he wasn't the only person agitated by Harvey's presence. Though he was hard to read, Jackson interpreted Raj's questions as him feeling similarly to what he did. While he wasn't quite sure if the kid was jealous or what exactly was going through his mind--his face gave away no clues really though he could hear the panic in his voice--he at leas knew that there was something there and that the kid didn't approve of this douchebag whatsoever. As such, he tried to console the guy the best he could. Not that he was very good at it. "Yeah, he just met her and he's already trying to charm his way into her fucking pants. Ridiculous. What a douchebag." Right, well, so much for consoling.
His agitation was honestly too much and he couldn't stick around. He trusted Melli, he did, and while part of him wanted to sit right there at that table and glare at the asshole until he bore a whole into the side of his face the moment he sat down was too much for him to take in. He'd come so he could assess this whole situation but he wasn't about to sit there and watch this whole thing go down. Last thing he needed was to yell at a student after getting too fucking frustrated with him after all.
He'd hardly expected for Raj to join him, though he didn't mind much as all he'd been doing was mindlessly flicking through the television channels with no intents on landing anywhere. There was something about the kid that was a little peculiar, something he couldn't quite put his finger on, but he didn't mind his company. He'd been entertaining the few times he'd been around and admittedly it was nice to have a comrade in this situation in the first place. The two of them were clearly not impressed with Harvey's presence.
With a raised eyebrow, he took the beer and tipped the bottle towards him, taking a long swig before scoffing at Raj's question. "Student of mine. Calls him self Tide. Tidus. Stupid right? Pretty sure his name is Harvey. That's what my roster says." He shrugged, rolling his eyes as he did so. "Kid's failing my class. Who fails Sociology?" Hardly did Jackson admit that he might have been a part of that reason. He certainly wasn't helping. "He asked Melli to tutor him but I'm pretty sure the only thing he was trying to do was get in her pants. Can't do much about it myself without getting in trouble." Shit was Jackson glad that this kid actually knew about this whole thing. In a way, it was nice to talk about like this in the open. Knowing that he didn't have to hold himself back for once was a relief.
