~“I miss the person I used to be.”
As soon as she got to her apartment, she locked the door and went to her closet. The wedding dress gleamed at her from the back of her closet. Such a waste.... Unceremoniously she pointed her wand and Vanished it, not even wanting to touch it before letting it fade into nonbeing. It was gone.... She buried her face in her pillow for a few moments as tears leaked out. She had told Hope she was going to La Lune Bleue... and she would keep her word. She dried her tears, fixed her face with makeup and a touch of Transfiguration, and took away another pound. Then she slipped into one of her new dresses and headed for the bar.

Ferlen[]

Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary

He'd knock on her door.

Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 14:52, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She put the Dreamless Sleep potion away with a small sigh. She hoped it wouldn't be anything important. She opened the door. "Hi, Ferlen. Come in."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 14:53, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd give her a small smile. "Hi Mary..." He'd walk in. "Hope I'm not interrupting anything..."


MaryWaters

Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 14:54, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She shook her head. "No, not at all." She took a seat on the couch. "How are you?"
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 14:54, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd sit as well. "I'm fine...how are you?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 14:56, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
He had probably heard about Benjamin's son being born. That's why he was there. So she slightly changed her prepared response. "As fine as I can be right now."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 14:56, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown. "...what does that mean?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 14:57, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She frowned. "I... assumed you knew what happened this week...."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 14:58, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown. "...what happened?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 14:59, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Benjamin's son was born- so it goes without saying I've been avoiding the maternity floor all week."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:00, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd nod, understanding. "I see...I take it that means you're still not over him...?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:02, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She gave a small shrug. "I don't need to stop by his- girlfriend's- room and see the life I could have had."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:03, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown, gently putting a hand on her shoulder. "Mary...that wasn't a life you'd have wanted. Can you imagine the issues you two would be having now if you'd gotten married...? You can do better."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:06, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She stared at the ground, not responding, but a million thoughts running through her head. She was lucky Hope was still her friend... what kind of man would accept her when she was so broken?
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:07, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He didn't want to kick her when she was down but... "...Hope came by the other day...said you'd been talking about adopting...?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:09, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded, lifting her head. "Yes. Her name is Valerie. She's seven years old. I've been visiting her at Lil Bundles."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:09, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown. "...Mary...do you really think that's a good idea right now...?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:11, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Of course. I've always wanted children, and Valerie is in need of a loving home. I can give that to her."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:13, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd shake his head. "No Mary...you can't. You work twelve hour shifts, and even if they're day shifts, that still means she'll be seeing more of the daycare than you...and with Benjamin's son being born, can you honestly tell me that the timing isn't at least suspect?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:16, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"I've been looking at adoption for months now... and can you honestly say you can give more time to Rose than I could with Valerie? You're the Minister's assistant." She knew that turning the tables wasn't at all kind, but her defensiveness was making her put up a wall. "I miss Teresa, Benjamin, Phoebe, and Renee more than words can say, but it's time for me to move on."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:21, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He knew she was right...but her words didn't catch him off guard or hurt him. "You're right Mary...I can't spend nearly as much time with Rose as I'd like...which is why this is a bad idea. Adopted children need lots of EXTRA time and love because of what they've been through. They're a full time job for TWO parents. It wouldn't be fair to this little girl for you to tell her you love her, adopt her...then only be there to half-support her because that's the best you can do. You're right...you should move on...but not by adopting an innocent to share in your suffering Mary. ...and this may sound selfish, but I know I can't be there for Rose as often as I need to be...and you have to help fill that gap. You'd be abandoning Rose, and the love and attention you give her now...for someone else. Are you really going to do that to your niece?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:24, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She met Ferlen's gaze with a deep breath. "If Teresa had disappeared, but Benjamin and I had been able to work things out, and we had a kid, would you be making the same accusation?"
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:30, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd shake his head. "No...because you'd have a partner to help you, and because your child would have their natural parents. When Hope let me know, I went and found the statistics Mary...adopted kids take years to integrate into a family, and supposedly need eight to ten hours of attention and love a day to feel loved. Providing that simply isn't possible for you right now Mary. If the situation were different would I still want your support with Rose? Yes...but you'd be able to help and provide that because children born into proper famlies are easier to manage...and Rose would just grow up extremely close to her cousins. Given the situation we have to work with though...that's not a feasible logistical solution."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:31, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Then what do you suggest I do, Ferlen?"
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:37, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd gently lay his hand on her shoulder. "I'd say you should try getting back out there...seeing if you can find some new friends. They won't necessarily replace your old ones...but they'll help fill your life with happiness again. Try dating...some may go bad, but maybe you'll find the right guy. Focus on you right now...on the things you want to do, and love. You need to be happy with yourself before you can think about trying to raise a child properly."

He'd take a deeo breath. "...and you have to come to terms with everything. Benjamin is gone and he's not coming back. Phoebe is gone and she's not coming back. ...T-Teresa is gone and she's not coming back. There's nothing we can do about any of that...except accept it, and move on." He'd give a tentative smile. "...maybe I'll even try dating again too...if it would help your morale to know I'm in the same boat. We can move on...together."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 15:48, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She flinched away from him and narrowed her eyes dangerously. "Benjamin may never accept me again... I know Phoebe is gone... but I REFUSE to accept that Teresa is never coming back. Wherever she is, she still loves us both. I don't know when or how, but she will return, and when she does, she will need us. How do you think she'd feel if she came back to find your love had shifted to someone else? Guilty as hell, depressed as all get out... it would only make her worse. I CAN'T accept that she's gone for good."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 16:21, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown, his voice low, but still controller and reasonable. "...Mary, she's been gone for over a year. She up and walked out on us...you, me, AND Rose. IF she does decide to ever come back, and I tend to doubt she will, I'm not sure I'd want her in my...or Rose's...lives. What's to keep her from leaving again...or getting caught up her her dark research? ...how would I explain to Rose her mom just up and left her....and now wanted to be back, but might up and leave again? I'm not going to be the parent who subjects his daughter to that. Teresa made her choice...and now I have to as well. I have to protect Rose...that's my number one job. I told Teresa this once...but if that includes protecting her from her own mother...I will."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 16:54, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"If Teresa left to work on Dark research, I might agree... but I don't think...." Her head suddenly started pounding, and her hand flew to her forehead. "Damn," she swore in a whisper.
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 16:55, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown. "...Mary? Are you ok?"
MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 16:57, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Every time I think too much about where Teresa might have gone...." She started to get up, decided that was a bad idea, then pulled out her wand to Summon her headache potion.
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:00, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd nod, grabbing the potion as it flew towards them, and kneeling down to help her drink it.


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:03, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She drank it down, letting out a sigh when the pounding in her head subsided to a dull ache. "My therapist thinks that I get them because my mind is blocking emotional trauma." She let out a humorless chuckle. "I wish that were completely true."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:04, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd shrug, gently putting one of her arms over his shoulders and helping her over to the couch.


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:07, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She took a seat, tears in her eyes. "I miss my sister, Ferlen. And as much as it literally hurts to think it... I'd be surprised if leaving was completely her choice." As if in response, the pain in her head intensified again, and she took another small dose of the potion.
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:09, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd sigh and place a gentle arm around her shoulders, his voice soft and consoling. "I miss her too Mary...but when it comes down to it what matters is that she isn't here." He'd hesitate. I know Hope and I will support you and help if we can reguardless of what you decide...but please at least think about what I said before you go ahead with this adoption ok...?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:11, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Okay," she murmured, tears beginning to roll down her cheeks.
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:12, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd gently pull her close, wrapping his arms around her, holding her while she cried.


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:17, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She buried her face in his shoulder, crying silently. Even if she wanted to take those steps Ferlen had suggested to move forward, who besides Ferlen and Hope would accept her when she felt so broken?
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:18, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd just wait, holding her while she continued to cry.


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:21, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
Eventually, she lifted her head, averting her gaze. "I'm sorry, Ferlen...." She rubbed her temple. All she wanted to do was take a Dreamless Sleep potion and sleep through the rest of the day... and maybe the next....
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:24, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd smile. "There's no need to apologize Mary...really. I didn't come here to make you feel bad or argue with you. I'm here because I care about you Mary. Hiding in your apartment and sleeping all the time aren't healthy...and as a healer you should know that. What would you recommend as a healer if a patient was doing that?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:27, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She frowned. No one knew about the Dreamless Sleep potions. She hadn't told a soul. "I haven't been sleeping all the time. I've been going to work, getting things done... visiting friends every so often...."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:30, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown. "Apart from work, Hope says she hardly sees you Mary...and while I know you occasionally pick up Rose or keep her, it's not THAT often." He'd frown...but continue. "You've gained some weight, and you always look tired. You're not taking care of yourself, and your body's starting to feel the effects Mary."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:39, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
I don't care. The words almost escaped her, but she bit them back. The last thing she needed was to make him think she wanted to end her life or something. She remained silent.
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:41, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd wait silently. "...you know this isn't healthy Mary. If I didn't care I'd just let you destroy yourself...but I refuse to you you do that...to let my wife do that to you."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 17:47, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She met his gaze. "You care about me because Teresa cared about me. Would you really be here otherwise? Hope cares about me because she's a kindhearted person who won't abandon her friend... she knows what that's like. I could try to find new friends, or get back onto the dating scene... but who's going to accept me when I'm so... broken? No... it's better this way. It might be taking a toll on my body, but I can't let myself get even more broken... and I REFUSE to let myself go completely, back to those men, and I refuse to disappear on you like my sister did."
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 17:52, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd frown. "Mary..." He'd pause, collecting himself, then restart. "...you're right, you ARE broken. Until you accept that and put yourself back together, you're going to continue this pity-party and destroying yourself. I can't help you if you won't even help yourself."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 18:01, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
Tears re-entered her gaze. "I've tried. I've tried to work through it all. But there's a barrier, because I can't help that I want, more than anything else, to go back to the times where I was happy. I link happiness with running through the forest with Teresa, or dancing with Benjamin at the ladies' night, or trying in vain with Phoebe to get Renee into more feminine clothing. I try to make more happy memories and everything I do, everywhere I go, just reminds me of what I've lost. People have stopped coming to me with their problems because they see how broken I am with my own. Every slice of happiness I've been handed since all of this has just turned sour too quickly. Renee couldn't handle it... and I lost her too, on top of everything else. And I feel like since every time I think about Teresa I get a damn headache, and since Benjamin leaving me had a lot to do with my sister, I literally can't work through it all. So where does that leave me?"
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 18:05, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd shrug, his voice firm. "...it leaves you at a place where you have to decide if you're going to wallow in the past, convinced you'll never be happy again...or move past it, realize how far you've fallen and pull yourself back up...before you hit rock bottom."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 18:07, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"I think you should go, Ferlen." Her voice was quiet and unchallenging.
Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 18:08, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
He'd stand. "...I think you're right. If you need anything, you know where to find me." He'd turn to walk out.


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 18:20, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
As soon as the door was closed she went into her bedroom for the Dreamless Sleep Potion. Before she drank it though, she took a look at herself in the mirror. Ferlen was right... she HAD gained weight. A little Transfiguration would fix that... as well as the bags under her eyes. She gave herself a beautiful smile. Who said she wasn't just fine? Who said she was going to hit rock bottom? If she couldn't actually be fine, she could act the part, and with a little magic, no one would ever suspect. Maybe the 'fake it till you make it' principle would even come into play. She fixed the bags under her eyes and took away a pound or two- she wouldn't do it all at once, or it would look suspicious. She opened her closet and threw most of her lounge clothes onto the bed, then Vanished them. She was going shopping for new clothes- anything that made her look put together. She thought briefly about asking Hope to join her shopping- but then images of Renee and Phoebe popped into her head, and she scrapped the idea. She Apparated away to start shopping, leaving the potion in her dresser for now.
