He shook his head. "We're engaged Mary. I think that you can handle watching me get dressed," he said with a bit of a grin in her direction as he started dressing.

She looked up at him. "I just keep reminding myself everything will be okay... Renee will get better. Phoebe will be found. And with any luck, I'll have my two best friends back before the most important day of my life." She gave him a small smile.

Her optimistic spirit both warmed and broke his heart simultaneous. He knew Renee would get better. He knew Phoebe was found.... but that there was very little chance she would be there for the wedding. He pressed another kiss to her forehead. "This is why... one of the many reasons why... I love you, Mary Waters," he said.

He could feel her gaze searching his, and trying to understand his own feelings, but he knew that he couldn't let her know what was happening. It would break her... and he wasn't sure he'd be able to put her back together if she knew. "I have to go," he said softly.

He gave her a half-hearted smile, and a shrug. He gave her one last brief kiss before forcing himself to walk out of the bedroom, and Apparate to work.

She rested her elbows against her knees, holding her head in her hands. Something was very wrong... and no one was giving her answers. Not even Benjamin.

Birthday

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
When Benjamin woke up the morning of his birthday, there was a note waiting for him on the kitchen counter, next to a single red carnation.

Dear Benjamin,
I didn't want this day to pass without wishing you a happy birthday. There's fresh coffee brewed in the pot, blueberry muffins being kept warm in the oven, and hard boiled eggs in the fridge. Please have a great day, and I hope to see you soon.

 – 04:24, April 24, 2015 (UTC)

He sighed when he saw the note, feeling both sad, and touched. Of course, Mary hadn't forgotten his birthday. But he knew that if they saw each other in person, there would still be a lot of underlying tension, and that was the last thing he wanted, especially today. Mary needed to work out her own feelings, and it was clear to him that his presence wasn't helping matters, due to the nature of the case. He poured himself some coffee, and munched on a muffin... hoping that things would resolve soon, because he didn't want to suggest postponing the wedding....

He shrugged. "You could just keep me company. But if you want, you can help pack," he said as he walked into the bedroom. There were several boxes already packed up. "I'm nearly done in here. Just one more drawer, and the closet for clothes."

He opened the door and inhaled a bit when he saw Mary. At least Teal had gone... That would have been all kinds of messy. And he didn't want to put Mary through that, too. He was a bit wary and confused when he saw Renee. "Mary. Renee. How can I help you?"

Her eyes still looked a little red-rimmed, and a slew of emotions were in her eyes. Sadness, anger, love, regret, longing... but a mist of great pain superceded everything else. It would remind Benjamin of the afternoon she destroyed the memories of those men. Her posture and voice, however, were steady and calm. "This is for you." She placed the memory vial into his hand.

She didn't respond to that. Her eyes searched his gaze. "I'll be at Renee's for the next several days if you want to talk." What are you doing? Slug him already. She shut down the thought. If he did still care... seeing the memory would be bad enough.

She took a step closer, choosing her words carefully- though they were rooted more in emotion than logic. "Do you even give a damn, Benjamin?" Her voice was low with a hint of anger, but she downplayed the emotion as best she could. However this was going to play out... another fighting match would do nothing to help matters.

The pain intensified in her gaze. "And I will always love you. So what are we doing breaking our hearts over this?" She didn't add how her heart had been broken too many times in such a short period, or how Benjamin leaving had been the last straw. This was about them both, not just about her.

She wasn't paying much attention to Renee's presence right now. "No, I don't," she murmured. "There's not a lot that I know for sure... but I know that we love one another. I know that we've helped one another more times than I can count. I know that one person- her actions, our response- isn't enough to throw this away. Teresa is gone. Phoebe is gone."

Her begging was more than he could take, but instead of taking pity on her... it just frustrated him. "You deserve someone who can love your whole family. I have made it plain I will never love Teresa. The woman is dead to me." He didn't speak harshly, but the words had a bit of venom in them.

"She's not coming back." She wasn't sure when exactly she had accepted that fact. But she had. She turned her face away slightly. What was she doing still standing here? Benjamin had made it clear that it was over. That she would never be welcome in his arms again like before. She took deep breaths to try and stop any tears from spilling out.
