Tabitha Hawthorne
I'd like that.

Tabitha wiped at her eyes, brushing away any remaining tears and managed a weak smile at the Potions mistress who seemed to have an uncanny talent for finding something positive in everything. Tabitha wondered what she had done to have the opportunity to be friends with such a lovely, gorgeous person. She managed a weak chuckle as Mary complimented her and with that smirk on her face, the woman looked positively mischievous and devilish. Tabitha idly wondered if there was a cheeky streak hidden underneath all of Mary's loveliness.

Then, she was invited to stargaze.

Tabitha blinked, surprised, and for a moment just stared between Mary, her arm and the bench she was gesturing to. It assured her that Mary was being sincere - not that she thought the woman could lie or manipulate somebody - and she smiled, taking steps towards her.

"If you want to look at the stars, I have a better idea," she told her before taking her by the hand and pulling her further in the labyrinth of the gardens. After a short walk that involved a number of turns and a walk past a lovely fountain, Tabitha came across a clearing that was perfect. She removed her white robe and laid it down on the grass, the blue silk lining facing upwards.

"You should always look at stars, lying on your back," she told the woman, by way of explanation. Stargazing was something Tabitha had done countless times on her travels and she found it to be rather relaxing. So much so that she had fallen asleep under the stars. She laid down on her coat, leaving enough space for Mary to lie beside her. She patted the empty space next to her.

"Come on, join me."
