Mary Brooding
Let's find out together.

Mary smiled, her nose wrinkling.

"Don't you worry a bit, that hair is always falling and I don't mind you pushing it back. I...I like it."

Sensing that Tabitha needed something-- anything-- to lighten the modd, Mary smirked at her. Stooping her head and leaning towards her, Mary changed her tone into one of conspiracy and jest.

"Tabitha, I think it's possible you haven't heard this enough, but I think you're amazing."

Mary's chest swelled as she realized how much more comfortable she was. She was with a lovely woman, in a lovely gardens, at a lovely school, and she was not going to let a not-so-lovely time in her life ruin it for her. She hoped desperately that Tabitha could be encouraged to do the same.

"Fancy a seat with me? The gardens are a beautiful place at night." Standing to the side, she waved an arm, elegantly gesturing at the bench she'd been found on. "Tell me what you see in the stars," she coaxed. "I've thought rather often that the stars must have a sense of humor. Think of all the starry nights they watch over, and all the silly things they see."

Mary had experienced her fair share of terrible starry nights, but she hadn't lied when she said her happiest moment was under the stars either.

"Shall we?"

              Mary stifled a giggle as Tabitha spoke, not because the witch's words were silly but because they were utterly un-silly. The story was new to Mary and fascinated her, but when Tabitha was finished,... more
