Tabitha Hawthorne
I-I was no... Oh, forget it.

There was something about being confronted in the middle of the night that threw Tabitha back into her teenage years, when she was frequently sneaking around with JJ at all hours of the night when they were staying at Hogwarts. When they had been caught by professors, she went for the one method that she'd gone for every time.

And absolutely, definitely never worked.

Deny everything and lie.

She swallowed thickly before giving a nervous laugh and tried desperately not to look Rory in the eye. "I- I was... Well, I was..."

With a big sigh, again similar to the ones she'd given as a teenager to her disapproving professors, she gave up. It was no good. She had been caught.

"I was with Mary," she admitted. She did not think that Rory would require any more detail than that.

    Rory had been up late going over a report he was submitting for the kelpie reserve he was helping to set up in Scotland. There was lots of paperwork to do in order to register the reserve with the... more

      • Rory raised an eyebrow. 'With' Mary? Given everything - the late hour, Tabitha's appearance, the lipstick mark, Tabitha's general shiftiness - he didn't think it had been a purely social call. "And... more
        • Nope and I'm going to die of embarrassment.Tabitha, Sun Nov 25 16:23
          Tabitha wasn't entirely sure if her cheeks got get any hotter or redder than that moment. "Well, we were and are..." she said, slowly. "But we're also... Well, you see, Greece had a lot to do with... more
          • Aww, Tabitha seemed to be getting embarrased! Rory couldn't help the grin that was coming to his face, especially as Tabitha tried to explain. "Is Greece a euphemism, or a reference to that fact that ... more
            • At the moment, I think you mean *your* fun.Tabitha, Sun Nov 25 16:43
              It was clear that Rory was obviously enjoying the situation. If she a little honest, it was pretty funny. Also, she couldn't ignore the feeling of relief in her stomach. At least somebody in the... more
              • "Ohh, that explains that," laughed Rory, his confusion over what Greece meant exactly cleared up. If the look on Tabitha's face was anything to go by, the holiday had been enjoyable. "I wouldn't... more
                • I guess it is pretty funny.Tabitha, Sun Nov 25 16:54
                  Tabitha had been nodding along to Rory's words which made a lot of sense. Maybe she could use them when talking to Mary about it? Then, her ears caught the mention of a name that she couldn't match... more
                  • This isn't quite so funnyRory, Sun Nov 25 17:28
                    Ah. Rory winced, and mentally rammed his head into the nearest wall, realising he'd brought up a subject he was never particularly happy discussing, and especially not late at night when he was tired ... more
                    • Oh, oops.Tabitha, Sun Nov 25 19:22
                      Tabitha might’ve been stupidly caught out that night but she wasn’t a stupid person. It was clear by Rory’s brief answer that whoever Amelle was, she wasn’t a subject that he necessarily wanted to... more
