Tabitha Hawthorne

Tabitha was trying to read through a student's essay but her concentration wasn't completely on it and all she seemed to be succeeding in doing was re-reading the same line over and over again. She exhaled sharply through her nose, annoyed. To tell the truth, she didn't want to spend her time with Mary by marking papers. They should be doing something! They were in a Labyrinth. They could be going and getting lost in amongst the hedges, stealing kisses and hiding away from prying eyes. That was very much what she would rather being doing.

She was a bad example of a teacher.

Seeing as it was unlikely that her fantasy was going to happen, she resigned herself to having to work and answered Mary's question. "There's no real defence against Veelas, no spell they can use. The best method I found was simply distraction. So, aside from an essay about Veelas to demonstrate their understanding, I also asked them to provide a list of ways, magical or otherwise, that would be useful for a distraction and how they would be effective."

Tabitha smiled slightly at Mary's compliment. She certainly didn't feel the same gladness. In fact, she would've much preferred to run for the hills. "You're far too complimentary of me," she told her, turning her eyes back to the essay she was holding. "Everything, human, creature, anything living deserves respect."

          "I met one," Tabitha nodded as she finished scibbling a comment at the bottom of an essay before moving it to the 'finished' pile. It was probably a bit ambitious to call it a pile given that it only ... more

              Tabitha smiled as a pink blush coloured her cheeks, having received a kiss on her nose and her lips, though she wished it had been more than a slight graze. However, she knew that Mary was shier in... more

                  Tabitha had pulled out her wand from the inside pocket of her blazer, more out of habit rather than anything else. It had become the norm and also, a comfort, to be holding her wand when exploring.... more
