She'd shrug taking a deep breath. "When I was considering where to live...I realized this place might be empty. I talked to Mal and she said her family wasn't living her anymore so I talked to Ash and he gave me a good deal." She'd look around. "This place is...home. I grew up here and...when my parents died I felt like I was forcibly removed from here. It was traumatic. I don't blame Ash and Charity but...if I had been old enough I would have rather lived here alone than moved. Then after that it was being used. I...helped arrange that in part but it still hurt just a little you know? Like...watching a friend get what you'd asked for for a Birthday or Christmas and knowing they'd enjoy it but being a little jealous too." She'd shrug and shake her head. "Maybe it doesn't make sense but I guess I also feel like this is what's left of my parents and our family and...it's sort of like an heirloom that should be mine. We got money from our parents when they died and I think everyone else got...something from jewelry to books or other things but..." She'd shrug and look around not sure what else to say or how to explain. The doorbell would ring and she'd get up from the couch to get their pizza and pay for it. She'd set it on the battered coffee table and head into the kitchen to get plates. "What do you want to drink? I've got water, a few soft drinks, beer or wine..."

He'd listened to her story and wanted to ask questions, but the pizza arrival delayed that. "Beer is good," he said.

She'd nod bringing back two plastic plates and two cold bottles of beer with their tops off and offer him one putting slices of pizza on the plates and offering him one.

"So do you see yourself living here... forever?" he asked, trying to keep his tone casual. "Or just until you... resolve whatever childhood issues you had?" he grinned at her, hoping she'd realize he was teasing.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 22:46, February 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd wrinkle her nose at his suggestion realizing he was kidding...but also serious and as much as she didn't like it probably also right. "For now at least. I realize when I get married my husband will have an opinion about where we live and it may not be here...but for now it'll be good and when I get to that point we'll see what happens and if I even want to stay here or not anymore."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 22:48, February 12, 2018 (UTC)~

He nodded. "So... uhm... you say husband like he's some faceless figure."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 22:52, February 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd give him a wry look and pointed examine her hand. "Well...considering I don't have a ring from any suitors..." She'd trail off and smile at him. "I...told you from the start I was looking for a long term relationship and marriage and we're still together so far. I'd...like to think you might be my husband some day but we're not at that point yet. So...not faceless but not set in stone either."


NewEric

 – 22:54, February 12, 2018 (UTC)~

"And I told you that I was also looking for those same things." He paused. "And I can see those things too... but like you said, I also don't think we're there yet."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 13:15, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod taking another bite of her pizza and chewing it thoughtfully before swallowing. She'd try to sound casual. "So...where do you think our relationship is?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 00:11, February 14, 2018 (UTC)~

"In a committed relationship?" he said with a shrug. "With the intention of marriage when we get there?" He looked at her carefully. "I mean... I'm not really looking around to be dating anyone else."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 12:46, February 14, 2018 (UTC)
Her tone would be a bit dry and sarcastic. "Well that's good to hear." She'd pause softening. "...but seriously I mean...do you see us getting engaged anytime soon or in like...five years?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:04, February 14, 2018 (UTC)

"I don't think five," he said shaking his head. "When do you see yourself... wanting to be engaged? I know your work kind of comes first for you right now."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:40, February 14, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "...and you're just starting a new job too so that's true for both of us with jobs."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:58, February 14, 2018 (UTC)

"Yes..." he said slowly. "But my job doesn't take me away for a week or more at a time."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:05, February 14, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Fair enough...I was just thinking work comes first for both of us right now since you're just starting." She'd pause. "I honestly don't have a good idea when the right time will be but I'm sure we'll figure it out as we go." She'd smile and finish her pizza.


NewEric

 – 19:10, February 14, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded, but didn't seem as content with the outcome of the conversation as she did. The job to him... was mostly just a job. If she'd let him, he would put her first, but that was challenging when she was gone for much of the time. "So... how far in advance do you find out about trips?" He asked.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:15, February 14, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "Usually I have at least a week to plan and such...but sometimes trips like this one move up and I don't have more than a day's notice. I didn't expect to leave on this one until next week but the paperwork from the Japanese Ministry came through early...so I leave tomorrow."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 20:30, February 14, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded slowly. "Okay... I guess... I feel like I don't seem to hear about your trips until a day or two before you leave."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 20:47, February 14, 2018 (UTC)
She'd frown slightly. "Sorry. I haven't really had a good reason to let anyone know I'll be gone more than a day or two out. I usually get informed or start making travel plans just about a week before I leave. Of course there's exceptions when I get a tip or something is sighted somewhere...but those are more the exception than the rule." She'd look apologetic. "I'll try to do better giving you a heads up. I just...hadn't thought about it."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:44, February 15, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded. "It's fine. I'm sure there's an adjustment period... I'm sure you'll let me know in the future," he said with a smile.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:11, February 16, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...I mean we've been dating for a while but getting used to including...anyone really in my decisions will be something I have to remember to do."

"Independent Slytherin streak hard to kill?" he said with a grin.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:09, February 17, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "That and being the youngest of five and having all the older ones telling me what to do and not to do my whole life. Makes me...less inclined to share since of course they'll have a comment or helpful suggestions or advice about how something else might be better."


NewEric

 – 03:13, February 18, 2018 (UTC)~

He nodded, finishing his beer.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:50, February 18, 2018 (UTC)
She'd take another small pull from her own, not minding the silence.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 12:34, February 19, 2018 (UTC)

He rested against the couch, putting an arm around Melinda, his fingers gently running up and down her arm.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:59, February 19, 2018 (UTC)
She'd smile at him. "So...now that you've got a job what's the next step for you?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:07, February 19, 2018 (UTC)~

"Getting an apartment, I suppose," he said with a shrug. "Shouldn't take too long to save up some money."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:38, February 19, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Well if you need any help just let me know."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:40, February 19, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded. "Well... I guess it's getting kind of late..." He wanted to stay, but wasn't going to invite himself over, either.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 20:32, February 19, 2018 (UTC)
She'd bite her lip and nod reluctantly. She wanted him to stay but tonight had overall been sort of...awkward on both their parts and she didn't want this to be forced or awkward. "Yeah...I've got to head out early tomorrow."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 03:59, February 20, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded, feeling like he should stand... but not really wanting to. "Early Portkey?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 12:53, February 20, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...with time zone differences I have to go really early or really late for it to make any sense. Japan is like nine hours ahead so to have any time to actually do anything on the day I arrive I have to go early."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:01, February 20, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded and reluctantly stood up. "Well I hope the travel goes well."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:03, February 20, 2018 (UTC)
She'd stand too and nod. "Thanks. I'll miss you."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:05, February 20, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded. "I'll miss you, too." He said before leaning in to give her a passionate kiss.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:07, February 20, 2018 (UTC)
She'd fall into the kiss pressing her body into his and softly moving her hands up his neck and into his hair.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:18, February 20, 2018 (UTC)

He pulled her in close, his hands resting gently on her waist. He deepened the kiss a bit more.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:20, February 20, 2018 (UTC)
She'd reluctantly pull away, her eyes still closed and enjoying the feeling of him holding her and the kiss. "Maybe...you could stay tonight?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:15, February 20, 2018 (UTC)

He gently tucked a lock of hair behind her ear. "I'd love to, if you want me to."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:18, February 20, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod a bit breathless from the kiss. "Yes."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 01:51, February 25, 2018 (UTC)~

He moved back in to kiss her again, his fingers now tugging at the hem of her blouse.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 13:25, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
She'd kiss him back with renewed enthusiasm fumbling to try to get his shirt over his head.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:19, February 26, 2018 (UTC)~

He parted the kiss for a moment to help her remove his shirt, before taking hers off as well.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:20, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
She'd start kissing him again as soon as the shirts were out of the way and pull him back towards the couch.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:22, February 26, 2018 (UTC)

He moved on top of her, moving his kisses from her lips to her neck.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:28, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
She'd arch against him enjoying the kisses then somehow manage to roll on top of him without dropping them to the floor placing fierce passionate kisses down his neck and chest.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:32, February 26, 2018 (UTC)~

He was a bit surprised, both that they were still on the couch, and that she'd wanted more control, but he went with it. As she kissed him, his fingers went to unbutton her jeans.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:40, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
She'd help him slide her jeans off then start working on getting his off as well.

Of course the couch hadn't been big enough and they'd found themselves on the floor. She'd be snuggled against him on the floor under a warm blanket she kept on the couch still feeling blissed out. She'd glance around the room and note the coffee table had been overturned when they'd landed on the floor along with everything that had been sitting on it. Clothes were strewn everywhere. She'd let out a slight chuckle and snuggle back in thoroughly amused and completely happy.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:42, February 26, 2018 (UTC)~

He had an arm around her, a wide, contented grin on his face. He gently pressed a kiss to her forehead. "Well... we certainly had fun, didn't we?" he said, looking around at the mess.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:56, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
She'd give a happy sleepy murmur. "Yeah..."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 22:23, February 26, 2018 (UTC)~

"So, do I need to be a good boyfriend and get you upstairs so you can sleep before your Portkey tomorrow?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 13:16, February 27, 2018 (UTC)
She'd frown slightly, her expression focusing a little. "You're not staying?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 19:01, February 27, 2018 (UTC)

"Of course I'm staying," he said reassuringly. "But I don't think sleeping on the floor down here would be very comfortable, so I was proposing the idea of helping us in the direction of a bed."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:06, February 27, 2018 (UTC)
She'd hesitate for a moment trying to figure that one out. She'd been staying in her old room in her old bed...where there really wasn't room for both of them at least not to share a bed. All the furniture from her parent's room had been gone and she'd replaced the bed there with some secondhand things though she hadn't had time (or heart) to do anything else in the room yet. The queen there would be big enough. Before she could overthink it she'd nod and slowly stand leading him in that direction.

He stood and followed her to the bedroom.

OOC: End here? Idk if there's more awkwardness to put Melinda through? :P



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:42, February 27, 2018 (UTC)
She'd get up a couple hours later tired but smiling remembering the previous evening. She'd do her best to exit the bed and room without waking Eric up leaving him a little note on the table.

OOC:Yeah we can end it here since I don't think he'd wake up (unless you want him to) and call it good. Note would just say she enjoyed last night and will miss him while she's gone.
