Erin Grace . . . Alone
Um, nice to meet you, too
Sat Jul 17, 2010 10:17pm

Madison Connor and Reece ran off with Derek, and Erin looked around for Joe. He was greeting Devon, in the same three feet as Eve, and Erin promptly decided that her best plan of action was to stay right where she was. With Mayra Orton. She gulped. Smalltalk was far from her forte.

Thankfully, Mayra seemed kind, and warm. Erin found herself smiling back at her, even earnestly. "Oh, thank you," she said, admitting, "It's a lot easier with Madison Connor out of the house. She's really . . ." she tried to find an adjective that didn't make it sound like she hated her kids. She loved them, more than anything (except Joe), but the older one was a handful. "Energetic," she finished, feeling lame for basically just repeating what Mayra had said.

"Reece goes here next year," she added, trying to think of things to say. "I think it will be weird to have so much time. Maybe I'll start, um, reading, or something."

She had a few close friends she met for lunch occasionally, but her world revolved largely around Joe and the children. All of her friends were wives of Joe's co-workers, and most of them were carefully under the belief that she sent her children away to a Muggle boarding school, never having heard of magic or wizards, or, or . . . even wands. She told them she worked as a secretary at a business firm, and tried not to talk about it. She was a good liar, but hated doing it.

    Derek looked to his mom when Madison suggested flying. Of course he'd rather go flying than stick around all these adults! "Please?" "Si, amor pequeño," she nodded. "¡No se meta en líos!" She shouted ... more

        Mayra nodded empathetically. Derek was always into some sort of mischief, but he was just a child. Her baby boy. He didn't know quite what he was doing and he wouldn't hurt a fly, she was sure of... more
        • Now you're just scaring meErin, Sun Jul 18 12:23pm
          "Oh," Erin responded, berating herself for choosing "reading" as the word to come out of her mouth. Reading. She didn't read, not unless she was at work, or it was a romance novel, cheap and trashy... more

            "Oh of course," Myra agreed. "All of us will have to get together. I will owl her tomorrow and see when she's available." She liked this woman. She was quiet, but willing to talk. She knew the... more

              Erin was shocked to hear that Mayra would rather sleep alone in a hotel, without her husband, than endure the discomfort of apparation. She would travel miles for Joe, in any manner possible, with... more

                Mayra watched Erin's eyes, looking towards the man walking their way. She looked him up and down as he came over. He wasn't handsome. And as he joined them he was polite, but she wouldn't call him... more

                  Erin decided exactly then that she was going to leave this conversation as quickly as possible. She spotted Cassandra and Jael - perhaps she could join them - or go watch the children out on the... more

                      Just as Devon was doubting himself, thinking Cassandra , he spotted her across the room with the memory of a story she had told him a month or so ago about Austin Harlow. Devon had scoffed at it.... more
