How's the chocolate wine?

Mary smirked, glad that her self-presentation had at least done its job temporarily in disarming Tabitha's intellect. Quick as ever, though, the Defense professor was back to it and Mary satisfied herself with taking a seat on the couch, close enough to Tabitha to reach out and touch her but far enough away to get a full view of the breathtaking beauty of her girlfriend.

As Tabitha spoke, Mary felt her throat tighten up. She was curious, as usual, but more than a little nervous to dive back into Tabitha's mind again. It seemed so invasive, but Tabitha seemed willing and even eager and Mary wanted to satisfy in that regard. She understood well the need to be transparent and knew the little things can be the most important. Some part of her was afraid, though. Something serious enough to block from Mary's view earlier but important enough to reveal before their relationship went any further was surely not a good thing in terms of their companionship.

Mary's mind raced, thinking of all the things it could be, and then she nodded, acquiescing. Before she could think too much more about it, she pushed herself back to her feet and took as firm a stance as was possible in slippers. She raised her chin and her wand at the same time and locked eyes with Tabitha for a moment. Waiting until the preparatory look in Tabitha's eyes had cleared, Mary pulled her shoulders back and relaxed her mind as much as possible.

"Legilimens," Mary murmured. Her vision disappeared, her breathing slowed, and her jaw locked. Then, just Tabitha.
