She didn't look at her. If she left... she would definitely lose the person who had cared for her most of all. Benjamin was the only one still here. Her life was falling apart. Couldn't they see that?

He mentally cursed the Unbreakable Vow he had taken. He wanted to just take Mary away.... give her her memories back.... perhaps, if they had both taken the Vow together.... then they could have made wedding vows together as well.

She pulled her hand away from Renee and turned around, backing away from her and a bit closer to Benjamin without really realizing the direction she was going. Her back was to Benjamin, and she was torn between two courses of action.

He watched her go, and desperately hoped that she would. This wasn't good for either of them. She clearly needed space to get her head on straight.

She turned to Benjamin. "I hope you realize exactly what you're throwing away. And what you're doing to me by pushing me away when I need you most." She turned around again, her gaze meeting Renee's for a moment, before Apparating away to her own apartment.

She was confused about where Mary had gone, and she gave Benjamin a look of resignation mixed with annoyance before wordlessly Apparating back to her own apartment.

He knew this couldn't be easy for her. But he wouldn't be there for her. He couldn't be. Not yet. Maybe... in the future... they might learn to be friends. Be happy for each other. But right now? He couldn't be sure, and he couldn't help her. He wasn't going to confuse her further.

Teal woke herself from a dream where she was falling. She just began to kick a leg and jolt herself awake, when she turned curiously observing her unfamiliar sleeping arrangement. She smiled seeing a sleeping Benjamin next to her and she carefully rolled over being ever so gentle as tried to go back to sleep.

He rose in the morning before Teal and went to the kitchen to make scrambled eggs, his head pounding.

She woke to the smell of food. She took her time getting dressed and making herself presentable before she found her way to the kitchen.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:16, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He smiled, perhaps a bit nervously, as she walked in. "I hope you like your eggs scrambled... it's the only way I really know how to make them."

 – 05:23, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled at the offer staring at the ground for a moment out of guilt. "I won't stay." She felt like she had taken advantage of him. She looked back up at him. "I should leave. Thank you. For everything." She smiled at him savoring one last look at him before she walked toward the door. "I should not have come here." She mumbled to herself.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:26, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He went after her. He didn't want her to leave... he didn't want this to be the last time they saw each other... to leave things like this. "Teal, wait. Is it the eggs? Is it last night? Please..."

 – 05:30, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"No. They actually look delicious, and I'm starving." She laughed, trying desperately not shed any tears. This was not the exit she wanted to make. "It... It is everything, Benjamin. Last night. Your being engaged. How I left. None of this is right." She looked at him slightly disgusted with them both, mostly herself. "I took advantage of you..."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:34, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"I am not engaged anymore," he said. "If Mary ever found out what happened last night... yes, it would look poorly on me, but I'm not planning on telling her, and I doubt you are." He chuckled slightly. "I assure you, I do not feel taken advantage of. I was a willing participant last night."



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 05:38, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She rolled her eyes, and gave him a look then instantly felt ashamed for having been so rude. "Willing participant? You were drunk. Any drunk is a willing participant in almost anything. I was your ..." She searched for the word. "Rebound. Would you like to sit and discuss it now. We are both adults Benjamin. Last night was a moment of weakness. You belong with Mary."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:41, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He shook his head. "Mary and I are finished, Teal. I'm not saying you and I belong together. If we do... as you say, we're both adults. We could figure that out and navigate it. But Mary and I... we cannot build a marriage built on lies. And due to everything that has transpired with that.... devil woman she calls her sister..." he took a deep breath. He wasn't sure how much he could or could not say, due to the Vow... and his position. "There would always be lies between us."

"There would not be lies between you if you replaced them with truths. Why is it Benjamin and Mary cannot talk about ... whatever it is and work past it?"

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:47, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"Because Benjamin is bound by magic not to say," he said. "Bound by magic that Mary is not."

 – 06:03, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She looked at him with terror in her eyes. "B-Benjamin. No." She very quickly threw her arms under his, and embraced him as if it were the last time resting her head near his heart memorizing the beat.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:05, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He put his arms around her in kind, closing his eyes. He had lost Mary. He had lost Teal. She didn't want to stay, and he wouldn't force her to.



TealPSeawood

 – 06:08, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She was not going to leave anytime soon. It was not easy to lose him the first time, she thought that was going to forever. If she could make last night last a little longer she had no choice. She had to make that happen. She hugged him tighter. "Did you salt the eggs?"


AaronHill6

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:09, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"Um... I have salt?" he said. "And pepper... and other spices that I'm not really sure how to use."



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 06:14, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She let him going running a finger over her right eyebrow still reeling from what he had said. She wanted to ask him so many questions all the answers were probably things she did not want to hear. "Salt and pepper are perfect." She smiled through her lie. She hated to eat eggs with less than three items mixed in on top of multiple seasonings.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:16, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He could tell something was slightly off, but he gestured to the dining table in the kitchen for her to sit, and served up the eggs. He'd also fried up some sausages and added that to their plates as well.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 06:19, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She sat down and smiled up at him gratefully at the addition of sausage. Her stomach rumbled loudly as she stared down at the food he had cooked.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:20, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He chuckled. "Do all women's stomach speak so clearly when they're hungry?" he asked sitting down and digging in.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 06:22, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

When they have not eaten in three days. She thought laughing anxiously. "All women are not the same, Benjamin. Have you not learned that by now?" She picked up her fork and broke up her sausage mixing it in with her eggs before she started eating.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:24, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"Of course I have," he said. "Merely noting some similarities."



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 06:25, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

In between fully chewed and swallowed bites she asked. "Such as? Aside from the sound of an empty and rumbling belly?"


AaronHill6

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:26, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"I must admit, it seems my noting of similarities, for now, starts and ends there."

 – 06:29, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Wanting to answer quickly while it was still funny she covered her mouth to laugh and say. "I assumed as much." She smirked with a closed mouth half-full of eggs.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:30, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He chuckled. "I'm very glad I convinced you to stay. You're working through your plate quite voraciously."



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 06:33, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Her cheeks went red, and she looked up from her food with embarrassment. "I told you I was starving." She bit her lips together, and attempted to eat slower and finish after him. "After what Benjamin said. Teal could not leave him yet." She smiled at her plate.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 06:37, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She covered her mouth and laughed looking up at him from her plate forgetting for that one moment everything and everyone else.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:38, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He looked across at her fondly. She often covered her mouth when she was laughing. He somewhat wondered what the smile behind the hand looked like. He continued eating. It was madness. Going after Teal when he'd just broken off his relationship with Mary?



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 06:41, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She looked back down at her food continuing to eat as slowly as possible occasionally looking up at him and smiling, wondering if she should tell him again that she loved him, and if it would even matter.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:42, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He finished off his eggs, and sausage, and took his dishes to the sink, trying to figure out what to do.



TealPSeawood

 – 06:45, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She sat at the table watching him walk away as she toyed with and finished her last few bites of food. She followed him to the sink holding her dishes in hand she stood behind him knowing exactly what she wanted to say.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:47, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He took her dishes and added them to the sink, waving his wand to start them washing. He searched her gaze, trying to figure out what to do.

 – 06:52, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"Benjamin. I love you. I loved you when I left you, and I love now more standing here in front of you and having to tell you that. Last night was the happiest night of my life. Despite how ashamed I am of what I did. I would not change it for anything in the world."


AaronHill6

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:55, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He let out a long, slow breath. "I loved you when you left. I loved you in the months you were gone. And then Mary came into my life... and she's... fading out. And I loved her, too. Something she could never understand." He raised a hand and gently caressed her cheek with his thumb. "Last night... was the night we never had before you disappeared. And I'm not saying I regret it. I'm saying that... in my life. My timeline... it came at the wrong time. I'm not saying that we will never be together again Teal. I am saying... that I must be fair to Mary."

 – 06:57, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled with tears building in her eyes at the feel of his touch refusing to let them fall in front of him. "I understand. I had to let you know how I feel."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 06:59, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"And I'm glad you did, sweetheart." He stopped. He hadn't ever called anyone but Mary that. But it didn't feel... wrong, or twisted to say it to her. "I care deeply about you. But I care deeply about Mary, as well. Perhaps in different ways. We can remain... friends," he said carefully. "And perhaps... in time... it could turn into... something more. Something better than what we had the first time."



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 07:02, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

She continued smiled despite the hurt, the stab it was to hear him call her sweetheart and saying the could be friends. He was never her friend, he was always someone that she loved. "I want you to be with her. I hate myself for saying it because I want you to be with me." Her tears would start to fall and she pulled away, wiping them away as quickly as they fell. "You. You looked so much happier with her than you ever were with me."

 – 07:04, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"That happiness we had... it's been replaced with bitterness... resentment... distrust." He took her hand. "It wouldn't be that way for us."

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 07:06, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"I cannot ever imagine it would." She smiled her face clearly pained. "What we had was pure. This is ... I have no idea what this is."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 07:07, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"It's complicated," he said smoothly. "It's a kink. It can iron itself out with time, Teal."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 07:11, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He took both her hands and looked earnestly at her. "What if my true happiness was meant to be with you?" he asked her. "What if I was never supposed to be with Mary? We can never know. It's not something the universe tells us."

TealPSeawood

 – 07:16, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

With her heart she would listen and respond in kind by kissing him back not willing to forget.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 07:21, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

He kissed her again, though he didn't linger this time. "Then we can wait. Give me... a few months. Let this scandal blow over. And we can be together again."

 – 07:23, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

"I will give you more. This is a mess, and I am not doubting your capabilities. I want to make sure you do not rush something so very delicate. I promise you, I will not be far." She smiled.

Teal stood outside of Benjamin's front door. She had been on the premise for about ten minutes... waiting. She was uncomfortable, it was her first time impersonating a man. She closed her eyes and sighed, should have stayed away until Benjamin contacted her. She could not do that. She broke in to his home using her extensive knowledge in magical transportation. She knew... or thought Benjamin would still be at work at this hour. She walked in further closing the door behind her.

 – 01:08, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

Benjamin had heard the door open and grabbed his wand off the nightstand. He had quickly put the book he'd been reading down, and wished that he was wearing more than just shorts. He crossed slowly into the living room, and over to the door, his wand at the ready.

 – 01:12, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

Unable to shake the feeling of being a man Teal again took a breath. One to ease her anxiety, then several quick breath at the whiff of an odor she did not find pleasing. She tried desperately to move away from it.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 01:14, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

He walked up slowly, and then his eyes went wide when he saw who it was. "Who are you?" he asked in a low, threatening voice to.... himself.

 – 01:17, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

Teal's eyes goe wide in return and she holds up one finger as she tries to hold her breath. She assumes her natural form. Her red hair much more brown than usual. "Benjamin!" She breathes heavily. "What are you doing home?" Her face wrinkles for more than one reason.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 01:21, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

He let his wand down and let out a huge sigh of relief. "It's near nine pm. What wouldn't I be doing home?"

 – 01:23, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

She swallows hard more uncomfortable now than before. It was bad enough she was trying to sneak into his house, and that she had to break in to do it. She had been caught red handed. "I thought you would be buried under a mountain of paperwork."

 – 01:32, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

She stared at him guiltily occasionally holding her breath for brief moments in between sentences. "You live here. It would have been inappropriate for someone other than you to show up at your home."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 01:33, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

"Alright, so why did you come?" he asked, clearly very amused by the situation.



TealPSeawood

 – 01:34, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

She thinks as quickly as possible not wanting to lie, or admit the truth. "I left something behind."

Keeping her personal thoughts in the back of her mind, she searched for his gaze eyeing the direction of his room when she was able. "I doubt that you would find it in here." She spoke very slowly trying to emphasize the fact that the item in question would probably be found on his bedroom floor.

He nodded. "Do you want my help looking? Or do you want to just... nip in there and find it?"

Her left eyebrow rises to an arch ever so slightly. "I can do that. I can find it on my own." She nods.

He wasn't sure exactly how she felt about... stray... underthings (at least that's what he was guessing it was). So he nodded. "I'll just.... be out here," he said before looking down and recognizing he was just wearing shorts. As soon as she was done, he'd go and grab a shirt at least.

Teal walked with a quickness to the room, she quickly switched one of his shirts for one of her personal garments back at the apartment. She tucked it into a large pocket and walked back out of his room joining him again in the living room. "Thank you."

He nodded and ducked into his room, grabbing the first shirt he saw on the floor and putting it on. "I'm sorry," he said, emerging as his arms came through the sleeves. "I wasn't prepared for company."

"Nothing I have not seen before." She gave him a once over grinning slightly before she grimaced, and forced herself to smile again.

"As if you did not already know it to be true, Mister Flaherty." She smiled seductively shaking her head no.

There was a bit of a lustful glint in his gaze towards her, but he knew it was foolish. They just had to be patient. Just... a few months more. Maybe in April. Even though it should be closer to June...

"Now that I know you are home. When you were not supposed to be." She dropped her gaze toward the ground then shifted it back toward Benjamin a look of worry on her face. "Something is not right."

He frowned slightly and moved closer to her, gently putting his hand on her arm. "What is it?"

She grimaced again swallowing hard. "There is something wrong. Wrong with me. I have not felt ... normal since. Since I came back here. Since we were together." She shook her head. "I am not sure why I came to you. I should have gone to a healer. I suppose if it is as bad as I think it is. I wanted you to know."

He gently pressed a hand to her cheek. "Teal, what is it?" he asked, concerned.

With her sense of dread stronger now, she felt the need to admit to her lie. "I stole your shirt." She frowned. "I had this smell stuck in my nose. It was the worst thing I've ever smelled, and it nearly made me vomit. I came here... I came here because I wanted one of your shirts, it has been the only thing so far that works."

A bemused expression crossed his face before it was replaced by the one of concern from before. He gently led her to the couch. "Teal. You could have every shirt in my closet if that's what you needed." He paused. "Do you want me to take you to St. Mungos?"

She smiled as he lead her to the couch knowing she would probably wear his shirt to sleep. She gave him a look as he asked her about Mungos. "You could not possibly do that." She shook her head. "I still know where St. Mungos is, Benjamin. I am not sure I want to hear what a healer would have to say. You are probably thinking that I am being ridiculous. I am, and I know that."

"I know a couple of the Healers there," he said. "It could be quick, and private. No one would have to know," he said. If there was anything his time with Mary had taught him, it was that going to the hospital, and not trying to... cover up medical secrets, was always for the best.

She breathed a sigh brows knitted together in thought. "You cannot come with me." She shook her head. "You could be at St. Mungo's at the same time. If that were something that should occur it would simply be a matter of good timing. Who are these healers you know?"

"Mary," he said. "But also her friend Hope Finch. There's others she's mentioned-- a girl named Charity, I think. But I am acquainted with Hope."

She sighed. Did he think if she had any option at all she would see Mary, even if it were not his Mary specifically. At this particular moment the name alone was enough to make Teal's hair go red again. "Hope ... Finch? And Charity." She nodded memorizing their names was child's play... she thought. "Will you be there? I told you not to. I have no control over you, Benjamin. I need to know, so that you do not surprise me."

"If you don't want me to come, I won't," he said. "I can make you the appointment if you want, or you can do that yourself... you're a grown woman, Teal. You also make your own choices. And it's your body, so you can decide what to do about it."

"I know that. I can make the appointment on my own. It was the reason I asked for the names of your healers." She balled her fists. "People get diagnosed with all manner of diseases they live with in some form of the word. I do not want to be one of the statistics that gets eaten alive by what ails them. I am scared. Is that what you wanted to hear? I am scared, Benjamin."

He gently put his arm around her and pulled her in for a hug. "Teal... why didn't you tell me sooner? I could have helped you."

"Did you suddenly become well known for your healing skills?" She asked rhetorically. "You have enough to deal with, Benjamin. I did not want to give you yet another detail to fuss over."

There it was again. That word. Friend. She was beginning to loathe it, she had to remind herself being Benjamin's friends was better than nothing. "I am glad I came to you first. Without Nyxie around-." She cut herself off pulling away from his embrace.

"Or Charity?" She stood from the couch and walked toward the door. "I will. You will be the first to know." She stood with her hand on the door altering her appearance before looking back at him.

She smiled trying hard not to smile like she would, she tried to smile like he would. "I came in this way, it is only right I leave this way."
