Rory Taransay...

Something chimed inside Tabitha's head then, a clear bell that was waking up her memories that had long since been shoved into a dark corner while new experiences and adventures took over. Her eyes flickered back to Rory's face and she squinted. Mentally, she made him shorter, younger and clothed him in the red and gold uniform of the Gryffindor Quidditch team and added a broomstick. It took a minute but then her eyes widened, the realisation coming to her.

          Tabitha beamed, her smile wide and her previous negative feelings temporarily forgotten as Rory remembered her. Memories swam around in her head of all the times they'd played together, celebrated... more
