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. It was perhaps rather distrusting, to be armed before even having encountered anything but the Defence professor liked to be prepared as one could never know what was lying in wait around the next corner.

"Sounds fun," Tabitha laughed at the rumour of a hidden hearth. "The unknown... Sounds like my kind of place!"

This was Tabitha at her core, an explorer, an adventurer. Eager to discover what secrets the world tried to keep hidden. It was a wondrous thing to uncover something new, a thrill to make the unknown become known. Tabitha had a thirst to know everything about the world and everything that lived in it.

"Boggarts can hide in forests," she told Mary as they turned a corner, her eyes automatically searching the path and the hedges from anything that seemed odd, dangerous or generally interesting. "And they can hide in a simple shadow. Sometimes they hide in wardrobes and boxes or..." she paused as they came to a choice of two ways to go and she looked up and down both before deciding to turn left. "Or, someone locked them in."

She sent Mary a sideways glance when the woman commented that she didn't have to be afraid of anything that could be lurking in the hedges. The corner of her lips twitched upwards in a smile as she replied, "I'll always protect you," she told her, then paused momentarily. "Though I have no doubt that you are more than capable of looking after yourself. As I believe you told me once... You can poison anything that tries to attack you."

She smirked slightly, remembering fondly the date that they had shared.

              "This will hurt," Tabitha warned and her face twisted uncomfortably, not wanting to cause the wonderful woman pain but it was a necessary evil. She steeled herself, breathing in deeply as she pointed ... more
