Mary laughed, an easy dancing tune lifting from her mouth as she watched Tabitha pout. She had feelings about this story including Tabitha, a Veela, and JJ, but she preferred this more playful, ready-to-go Tabitha and preferred to follow the topic change. Setting her books and quill aside and rolling towards Tabitha, Mary was very aware of the lack of distance between them. With only the briefest of glances towards the hedge maze and Sonora, Mary tipped her head forward and kissed Tabitha lightly on the nose and then the mouth, almost just brushing her lips there before retreating and blushing.

"Would you like to go for a walk?" Mary asked, smiling and doing her best to stifle a giggle. "You make me so giddy, Tabitha, what am I supposed to do with all these lovely feelings?" She sighed contentedly and rolled back onto her back, surveying the vast sky with an appreciative look.

"We could work through the maze? I'll let you lead since I know it better than you do," Mary teased. "My bag's down there," she added, pointing to the little bag near her books and papers. "We can fit all our stuff and enjoy a stroll."

If she was honest, Mary didn't particularly want to do boring professor work either. However much she tried to pretend there weren't nerves clawing at her stomach, she couldn't help feeling a bit anxious about walking through the labyrinth with her secret girlfriend. She supposed no one would know that's what they were, and she wasn't ashamed of it. Just scared.

Her eyes searched Tabitha's face for a moment as her thoughts screamed in her head: What if you change your mind, my beautiful love?

How could she be comfortable with any public displays of affection when they may only lead to public acknowledgements of their failed relationship if Tabitha decided she was no longer interested in Mary's companionship?

Mary forced a smile and turned back towards the sky, suddenly feeling like it was not just vast, but foreboding as well.
