Evelyn and Dom
You probably should focus on that.

Evelyn, who had come to her senses, kicked Dom under the table. Really! The best thing he could think to say was "interesting"? He clearly needed some lessons in sensitivity. She cleared her throat and said, more formally than intended, "Well I think it looks great," even though she was still slightly in shock. Mind you, once you got over the initial absurdness of Willow in makeup and artificially straightened hair, it didn't look all that bad. In fact, if she'd only had a bit more confidence, Willow could have pulled the look off with ease (she had learned this from Gilly, all those times he had made her try on every single outfit she had brought to Pitts' and then stand in front of the mirror and twirl stupidly).

"Um, yeah. Yeah, it looks great," Dom added, nodding fervently, not wanting sound less sensitive than Evelyn Moorlaker, who was not renowned for her sensititvity. His eyes were still watering and his ankle hurt a lot. Incidentally, the same ankle one of Evelyn's friends had landed on last term and snapped.

"No, mine was rubbish," he answered Willow, then added without thinking, "My parents tried to get me engaged." Evelyn said nothing, but went pink and giggly again. Dom rolled his eyes. "She won't say anything," he told Willow. "It's bloody annoying."

        "Oh, oh okay," Willow muttered. She really wasn't good with compliments. "Thanks." she took a small bite from her veggie burger and looked down at the plate as she chewed, almost choking as Dom... more
        • Maybe you need a hypnotist...Evelyn and Dom and Gillius Fowle, Thu Oct 7 3:03pm
          Dom's eyes widened in alarm as Willow choked violently on her dinner. "Are you ok?" he asked, ready to sprint for the nurse if need be. He could have kicked himself for being so cavalier about the... more
          • Who, though?Willow, Thu Oct 7 3:28pm
            "Good," Willow said, a little more violently than she meant to. Damn it, she needed to stop being so protective over him. Dom could look after himself. If he didn't want to have an arranged marriage, ... more
            • Good question...Evelyn, Dom and Gilly, Tue Oct 12 2:09pm
              Evelyn smiled when she heard Willow firmly expressing her approval that neither Dom nor his relative were the slightest bit interested in each other. On the other hand, she also felt kind of sad for... more

                "Okay," Willow said, returning the squeeze. She stared at her food, not that hungry any more, and pushed the plate away. She smiled and looked around the hall, looking at the people she recognised... more
