Devon and Mary
. . . daffodils?
Sat Feb 5, 2011 10:01pm

"Ah. Sarah," Devon smiled, when Sarah sat down. Yes. That redhead.

"Hi," Mary grinned, and put a hand forward to shake Sarah's. Friends, she was thinking. He was supposed to introduce me to friends. But maybe all his friends called him Headmaster. If they did, she planned on picking on him about it later. "Mary Wilde-Halberg. I'm really glad to meet you."

Devon realized, somewhere around this point in the greetings, that he had failed in his single purpose here. Sarah did not know who Mary was, or why they were being introduced. He cut himself slack in that he hadn't known, he wasn't used to this, and he grimaced in apology. He should say something, now. An introduction, of sorts.

"I heard how you saved that girl," Mary said, trying to fill the gap in conversation, looking a little confused but plowing on admirably. "Devon told me as soon as he got back to the room. He said you were incredible." She smiled at them both, and in failing to receive any cues from Devon, bit her lip and went on, "He says you're working on a patent. Congratulations."

Devon looked pleadingly at Sarah. He clearly was supposed to have made some kind of introduction at this point. "Sarah," he tried, as calmly as possible.

Mary took his hand, beneath the table, and a sip of cappuccino. "I'm pretty sure she's got it," she told him.

  • Oh good, I like spring. And with spring comes...Sarah Mason, Sat Feb 5 9:41pm
    Sarah had a rather slow morning and had no excuse for being late for breakfast except that she got caught up in reading a novel. It didn't happen often anymore, that loss of time and the real world... more

      • I was thinking more about young love *sigh*Sarah Mason, Sun Feb 6 12:25am
        Okay, so personality-wise she wasn't like Cassie. That was alright, at least. Not quite a "rebound" at least. And frankly, she was likable. The way she set her brows and lips showed she was teasing.... more
        • Well, not exactly---- Yes! Just that!Devon and Mary, Sun Feb 6 12:46am
          "Fantastic," Devon murmured, feeling at last somewhat more at ease. He'd been hoping the patent could come along faster, but Sarah was busy. "Congrats!" Mary gushed. Mary gave a nervous chuckle and... more
          • And flowers and chocolate too, of courseSarah Mason, Sun Feb 6 11:45am
            Sarah could hardly believe it. Devon was like a thirteen year old with his first little girlfriend, trying to figure out how to explain it or what to tell others about it. Mary seemed equally (if not ... more
            • Well, let's not get ---- That sounds great!!Devon and Mary, Sun Feb 6 12:09pm
              "Thanks," Mary smiled, obviously appreciating the welcome. Sarah had been a good choice of "friends" to introduce her to, Devon affirmed for himself now. Cassandra could have easily been a disaster - ... more
              • Well at least we can tell who's in charge hereSarah Mason, Sun Feb 6 4:28pm
                She'd heard a little about different schools. Not much about the Chateau Triquette, though. It wasn't until she was sixteen or seventeen that her tutor at home told her about the schools in Europe,... more
                • Why does it always end up that way?Devon and Mary, Sun Feb 6 6:30pm
                  "Yeah," Mary answered, "Thanks, that'd be great." She grinned across the table at Sarah. Devon was beginning to wonder if this was a good idea, or if he had just been duped into an event which could... more
                  • Because of the women you pickSarah Mason, Sun Feb 6 6:54pm
                    "No," Sarah agreed between bites. "No, she doesn't particularly like shopping. But I'm sure she'd love to meet us for lunch." Maybe that wasn't a good idea. She'd talk to Cassie, though, and let her... more
