Tabitha Hawthorne
Best of friends that enjoy the best of times.

Tabitha's eyes remained focused on Mary as she opened the box, revealing the dainty wings inside. Knowing Mary as Tabitha did, she doubted they would be used practically in potions but they would make a nice ornamental piece and she knew that the witch would care for them as the precious gift that they were. Also knowing Mary, she wanted to placate any fears that she may have as to how they were obtained and felt that she needed to explain herself.

"There was a colony of fairies in France that was being threatened by a disease that was killing them. I helped to find a cure and in exchange, those were given to me from the fairies who had, unfortunately, not made it. I didn't have the heart to use them so I've had them ever since. I thought they might be better in your hands. I know you'll look after them."

She smiled as she watched Mary being taken in by their beauty before she gently closed the box and put it to one side, away from the rest of the mess. She laughed when Mary pointed out that she hadn't gotten her anything and Tabitha shook her head in disagreement.

"I've been receiving your letters," she told her, an amused smile pulling at her lips. "I'm glad that my journals are interesting enough to warrant a reply! Also, your company is more than enough of a gift."

She looked around her at the mess of boxes and clutter that surrounded them and put her hands on her hips, arching a delicate eyebrow. "So, where do you want me to begin?"
