Tabitha Hawthorne
I already consider us friends.

Tabitha had been having a stressful day, the visit of the Deputy Headmistress to her office having given her a lot to think about in terms of her lesson on Veelas and what to do about Cleo. The whole thing had been headache inducing and Tabitha wanted nothing more than to have a lie down in a darkened room, preferably with a tumbler of whiskey. Unfortunately, the day was still within sociable daylight hours which ruled out such possibilities. Also, as a result of focusing most of her time and attention on her upcoming Veela lesson, Tabitha was behind on the rest of her lessons. All in all, it was a bit of a mess.

That was exactly the reason why, when an owl came into her office in possession of a note from Mary taking her up on the promise to help her clean and sort through her classroom and office, Tabitha didn't hesitate to abandon her lesson plans finding the thought of spending more time with Mary much more preferable. It was good timing as well as she also had a gift for the Potions mistress.

Tabitha departed her office (not before collecting two cristal tumblers and her bottle of whiskey in the hopes that the two women could share a drink later on) and made her way through the Academy. She was a bit more casually dressed than she had been for the Opening Feast, wearing a soft pink short-sleeved blouse and a pair of white capris. She'd slipped her feet into a pair of simple white sandals and, to keep her hair out of her face, had tied a white and pink patterned bandana around her head.

It didn't take her long to arrive at Mary's office door and Tabitha wasted no time in knocking, eager to see her friend. After a moment of two, the door was swung wide open to reveal Mary's smiling face and Tabitha grinned back at her, her negative mood from earlier dissipating. Seeing Mary was exactly what she'd needed.

She stepped into Mary's office, realising that with all the boxes of the woman's things strewn about, along with books and her trinkets, it was actually quite cramped. Displaying some agility, she stepped lightly over a few boxes to reach Mary's drinks setup, setting down the bottle of whiskey which she waved at Mary with a cheeky smirk and a wink and the two accompanying glasses. Turning back round to face Mary, she pulled a long and thin black velvet box from the back pocket of her capris and offered it to Mary.

"For you," she smiled, hoping that the contents inside would please the woman. "Personally collected on my travels."
