Shall we share a bottle?

Tabitha couldn't help but wince at the mention of fire. The thought always reminded her of some incidents throughout her travels that had been a bit too hot and close for comfort and she didn't just mean the Fire Crabs in Fiji. Still, she supposed they were experiences she could call upon should Cleo end up being... fiery. The next problem seemed to be that Selina appeared to want Tabitha to tell the Intermediates about Cleo.

"I..." she hesitated, unsure how her reluctance to tell a bunch of kids that she hardly knew about Cleo would be taken. "I hate to admit this but I don't think it's a good idea if this information comes from me.

In the meantime, I could reach out to some people I know, though. See if there's anything they can help with on the practical side of things. I can't guarantee anything of worth but something might turn up."

She couldn't help but laugh at Selina's quip to do with whether Tabitha was a Veela herself. "With this hair colour? No, not me. You are quite safe from any more shocks of this particular nature."
