Mary Brooding
As would I, sweet one.
Mon Jul 30, 2018 19:30

Mary busied herself with a gentle smile, and the nervous smoothing of her robes. She hoped it didn't look nervous, but she wouldn't deny it if she was caught out. Memories of a certain quiet starry night, laying in the grass with a certain veela woman, the last night she'd get to be so close to someone who'd meant so much.

She supposed it was a normal thing to do, though, and couldn't hold it against Tabitha that her last experience had gone so awry. After a quick mental note to 'get it together,' she cast her friend a smile and followed her to the grass.

The fact that there was precisely enough space for them both on Tabitha's lovely outercoat made Mary smile a bit.

"I haven't done this for a long time," Mary murmured, preferring not to launch into a more detailed story. "Months."

Mary carefully folded her hands together over her bodice, preferring not to cause any more trouble than necessary. "Tell me what you see," she murmured, loathe to break the silence that had drifted over them.

She turned her head to look Tabitha in the face. "Tell me everything," she said, and waited to see what she would say.
