Perhaps... in time....

Mary laughed once, hard. "That's not comforting at all!" she said, and it really wasn't.

If Tabitha Hawthorne, the woman who wasn't afraid of anything, who chased a Wampus Cat to the detriment of her relationship and livelihood, was afraid of the students at Sonora, what hope did Mary have?

"That must have been amazing having the opportunity to work with a mentor, though," Mary mused. What she wouldn't give for a chance like that.

Mary smiled at the compliment and rose an eyebrow. "I've never considered myself particularly funny, but I'm glad you seem to think so." She sipped from her own mug, enjoying the smoothness of the beverage. She'd had muggle-made hot chocolate before and it simply wasn't the same in most cases.

She smirked at her friend before admitting defeat. "I should tell you," she said, retrieving her wand from it's place in her sleeve. "I'd really rather just hang out. We can sit on the floor and giggle like schoolgirls ourselves."

And with that, Mary waved her wand, neatly sorting the rest of the items in the room, stacking the boxes, shelving books and tools, and dusting the lot of it. She wasn't half bad with charms, and used another to provide a decent cushion for them to relax on on the floor. It was a bit unnerving, as the cushion was invisible (a Cushioning Charm couldn't provide much more than a padding for her and Tabitha's backsides) but it was comfortable nonetheless.

"Oh, Tabitha," she laughed, taking a seat on the floor and reaching for the tray of cookies. "Tell me: are you a chocolate chip cookie woman? I like oatmeal raisin myself."

  • Ohh... Are you going to tell me about these things?Tabitha Hawthorne, Mon Aug 6 16:21
    Tabitha stopped her sorting in favour of drinking her chocolate and leaned on the shelves with her hip. She remembered the first lesson she'd given, remembering the swirl of nerves she'd felt, the... more

      • Oh, I can't wait to find out.Tabitha Hawthorne, Mon Aug 6 22:21
        Tabitha couldn't help but raise an eyebrow as she watched Mary's magic at work, tidying and putting everything away. She didn't know whether to be amused or shocked that the lovely Mary Brooding had... more
        • A tidbit here and there.Mary Brooding, Mon Aug 6 22:48
          A blush rose through Mary's neck and cheeks but she dipped her head to hide it as much as she could. When she looked up, she'd managed a smirk. "Yes, of course," she replied. She hummed something... more
          • You're a total tease.Tabitha Hawthorne, Tue Aug 7 12:25
            Tabitha raised an eyebrow at how quickly Mary had downed her glass of whiskey and was holding her tumbler out for more. The Defence teacher hesitated a moment, wondering if she'd unleashed some kind... more
            • I'm a total mess!Mary Brooding, Tue Aug 7 16:13
              Mary managed a weak smile, but couldn't quite look at her friend. She let the woman's words hang in the air and didn't answer for a moment. Having read parts of Tabitha's journals and spoken with her ... more
              • It appears that so am I.Tabitha Hawthorne, Tue Aug 7 16:56
                Tabitha did not understand what had just happened. Mentally, she reviewed everything she'd just said, trying to work out if she'd said something offensive. When she couldn't find anything, a look of... more
                • It's not you, it's me.Mary Brooding, Tue Aug 7 20:14
                  Mary closed her eyes as soon as Tabitha was out of range to see her expression and she flinched as the door slammed shut. When she opened her eyes again, her knuckles were white around the tumbler--... more
