She chuckled. "Sounds like a plan. I just want to make sure it's personalized for you, too."

"Whatever you come up with, Mary, will be perfect for us both. I have no doubt."

She smiled and reached up for a quick kiss. She felt like jumping up and down in excitement like a little kid.

He kissed her back. "Any other questions I can just nod and agree with?" he asked with a wink.

She chuckled. "Well, some of the decisions are completely up to you- who were you thinking for a best man?"

He chuckled. "Okay, you have a point there. I don't have any brothers... so I figured I'd ask the man about to become my brother-in-law. Ferlen."

She tipped her head, thinking. "I completely understand if you don't want your parents to be there- but I know my parents especially will question that."

He shrugged. "We'll see what happens. I don't know that either of them would be comfortable surrounded by so much magic."

"It's entirely possible."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded slowly, not quite sure how to respond to that. Her own parents might be irksome at times and travel a lot, but she couldn't imagine them not being there for their daughter's wedding, no matter the tension. She simply didn't understand.

"I'm sorry, I- I just can't imagine your parents not coming if we invited them. I know I only know what you told me about them- but they're still your parents...." She frowned, wondering if she should suggest that visiting them might clear the air.

He shrugged. "I'm sure my mother's afraid someone will recognize her for her family, and it'll turn into a scene... and my father has no experience with magic, or with the wizarding population." He could tell this bothered Mary far more than it bothered him, but he wasn't sure what else to say.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded, understanding a bit more- about his mother's potential fears more so than his father's. She figured she just had to accept that she didn't understand, and let it go, acting as Benjamin's support as needed.

She walked out of Benjamin's room after napping for a few hours. She was still wearing her light blue pajamas, but her hair was pulled back in a ponytail so it didn't look tousled.

He searched her gaze for a moment, before deciding he was satisfied. He gestured to the table where scrambled eggs, toast and bacon were waiting for her, along with a tall glass of orange juice. "I figured you'd be hungry."

"There's a situation in the office that needs tending to right now that would prevent me from ziplining, I think. But I could probably do the kitchen."

She nodded, her grin faltering a bit- wondering if it was the same situation that had been keeping Teresa busy lately- then deciding it probably wasn't, since they weren't in the same department.

The note read, "I had to go into work this morning. I can still meet you at the house to furnish the kitchen. I don't know the first thing about them... so you go to the furniture store and I want you to buy whatever you want. You feel free to spend as much as you like, and leave the bill at the store for me. This is your kitchen... and it's my gift to you. I'll be home probably sometime this afternoon."
