"Sure," she replied, not taking her eyes off the oysters.

She nodded, getting the ingredients, and starting to mix things together.

She continued frying the oysters, draining each batch.

She was following a recipe Mary had laid out very carefully, making sure she didn't do anything wrong. Mary had picked these things for a reason, and didn't want to mess them up.

"I hope you like all of this," she commented as she stuck the potatoes in the oven.
Hope Black

"Truthfully, I've never eaten a whole lot of seafood. But you're the expert, and I'm excited to try!"

She smiled and got a bowl out. When the fries were cooked, she transferred them to the bowl and spread the oysters on top.

She finished the tiramisu and stuck it in the fridge for later. "So... what's to drink?" she asked with a smile.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She hesitated. "Just water for now, for me," she decided.
Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:58, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She nodded, and searched for glasses. She filled Mary's with water, and her own with some of the red. She took a plate and her glass over to the living room, searching through Mary's collection of movies. "Anything in particular sound good?"



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Pick whatever you want." Hope would find a wide variety of movies- most of which were musicals that Mary or Teresa had taken part in. There was also a small collection of animated films, and some chick-flicks. Mary brought over the bowl of oysters and fries.

She picked up one called "The Holiday" and held it up. "What's this about?"

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Two women swap homes after bad breakups with their boyfriends," she replied, grabbing some condiments from the fridge.
Hope Black

 – 04:07, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

"Is that a... no?" she asked.



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She shrugged. "I've never seen the whole thing. It was a gift."
Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:10, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She shrugged. "We could watch it now but uh...." she looked at Mary's Muggle technology. "I don't know how to start it."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded and used the clicker to turn the TV on- the news was running. "They're still talking about that boggart attack in Poland- they must be really desperate to catch that guy." She turned on the DVD player and inserted the disk, settling onto the couch as the movie started.

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:16, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She nodded, watching as the movie started. Iris was introduced first-- hopelessly in love with a man who had recently been engaged. And Amanda-- who broke up with her boyfriend, who'd been growing distanced, and as it came out that he had cheated on Amanda. Hope cringed. Maybe this wasn't the best pick for Mary...

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She popped an oyster into her mouth, not much emotion on her face at all.

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:21, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She hoped the movie would get funnier as it went on. She watched Amanda decide to take a vacation from her life as a movie trailer editor, and find Iris online, and they make the crazy decision to switch houses for two weeks-- starting the very next day.



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She kept nibbling on the oysters, her face not showing much reaction to what was happening on the screen.
Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:25, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She smiles to herself as she watches Iris happily exploring Amanda's huge house, and the contrast of Amanda trying to deal with Iris' tiny cottage.



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She found herself thinking of the house Benjamin had purchased for her.... Her eyes stayed on the screen, but her mind drifted. If Benjamin had made Mary pregnant first... would he have stayed with her for the child's sake if nothing else? Or had Mary's selfless decision to wait until Benjamin was 'ready' and take precautions just contributed to losing him?
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:32, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~~

She watched as Amanda met Iris' brother Graham.... and fell into bed with him. While Iris found a friend in Amanda's ex's friend Miles.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
What Amanda had done was exactly what Mary was trying to avoid... she didn't want any guy to just become a rebound. Nor did she want to return to her former way of life.
Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:36, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~~

She took a sip of her wine as she watched. Iris became friends with Amanda's 90-year-old neighbor, an old screenwriter for Hollywood. Simultaneously, Amanda and Graham seemed to be growing closer.



MaryWaters

"I'll be right back." She got up and slipped into the bathroom.
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:38, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She nodded and paused the movie. She had a feeling that this might not have been a great choice after all...



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
In the bathroom, she looked at herself in the mirror, blinking back tears. Yes, her life sucked overall. But in the living room was a true friend, and they were watching a chick-flick. She was not going to mess this up. She took one deep breath, counted to ten, and let it out. She gave herself a beautiful, actress smile. Then she flushed the toilet, ran the faucet, and came back out, nodding at Hope to continue the movie.

"Tonight wasn't ever about me, Mary."



MaryWaters

She gave Hope a small smile. "I know."
Hope Black

 – 04:47, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

"Is there anything you need to... vent? Or get off your chest?"


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 04:51, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She hesitated, then shook her head. "I still have the same questions. I still want the same answers. But I'm not getting answers and there's nothing I can do about it."
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:54, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

"Is there anything about Benjamin specifically?" she asked.


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Of course, but they're mostly 'what ifs'," she replied. "If I had just kept my mouth shut. If I had... just done things differently."
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:59, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She nodded understandingly. "I had a lot of the same questions when Rex left. Especially after I found out I was pregnant."


MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded. "I guess the question that bugs me most is how could turn his back on, to use his words, the sole love of his life, and in a mere week's time turn his affections to another. One he made pregnant, no less... after I took precautions to make sure I would not get pregnant, after he told me he was not ready. It's...." Tears misted her eyes. "It's simply not fair."
Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 05:05, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She moved closer to Mary, putting a hand on her knee. "Would it help if I told you that when I saw him, he looked terrified?"


MaryWaters

She offered a tiny smile. "A little."

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

"And... Teal?"
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 05:12, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~~

She thought about that. She'd been observing Teal from a medical perspective.... "The love she has for her son is very evident."


MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 05:15, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded. She didn't want to know how Teal and Benjamin acted together... she knew the answer would probably just cause more pain. Wearily she rubbed her temple.
Hope Black

 – 05:16, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

She gently squeezed Mary's shoulder. "I know you can get through this, Mary," she said.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded dully. Obviously Renee didn't think so... she didn't want to watch Mary fall, so she left.
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's

 – 05:20, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

She looked a bit worriedly at Mary. "What is it?"


MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She buried her face in her hands, taking deep breaths. "Renee...." She couldn't admit that her pain had driven her friend away. She continued to take deep breaths, waiting for the emotions to pass.
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's

"What about Renee?" she asked calmly.

She shook her head and took another couple deep breaths. When she was certain the tears had vanished from her eyes, she lifted her head.
Hope Black

 – 05:29, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

"Mary, what happened?" she asked again, softer this time.


MaryWaters

She stared dully into space. "Phoebe and Teresa disappeared completely... Benjamin and Renee chose to leave me. And I'm t-terrified...."
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 05:37, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She gently rubbed Mary's back. "What are you afraid of?"


MaryWaters

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 05:41, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

"Mary, I wouldn't do that to you-- and I don't think Regan would let me, even if I tried," she said with a small smile. "Regan's lost... many people in her life now. So far, only one has come back. I won't take her away from you."


MaryWaters

Her lip trembled as she gave Hope a smile. She had needed to hear that. "Thank you," she whispered, tears rolling down her cheeks.
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's

 – 05:44, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She smiled back at Mary before moving to embrace her in a hug.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
For the first time in months, she allowed herself to cry herself out, letting her despair over all she had lost surge, then ebb to a dull ache. She was comforted by the fact that she wasn't alone.
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 05:51, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She'd continued to hold Mary while she was crying, gently rubbing her back. When Mary was done, Hope looked at her compassionately. "Do you feel a little better?" she asked.

 – 14:23, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

She grinned. She gave Mary one more quick squeeze before standing up and crossing to the kitchen, pulling the dessert out of the fridge. "How much do you want?" she asked.



MaryWaters

"Just a moderately-sized piece," she answered.

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 14:29, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded, cutting Mary a regular-sized helping, and a smaller one for herself. She grabbed two forks and brought over the desserts.

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 15:33, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

She shook her head as she took a long, slow bite, trying to figure out all the flavors. It wasn't too bad. After swallowing, she said, "I've never been a huge fan of coffee. But this isn't bad."



MaryWaters

She nodded. "I've always preferred tea to coffee." She smiled. "Actually, I used to loathe coffee. But a few night shifts at the hospital made me a believer."

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 19:52, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She stood by the door, debating what she should do now. Her first instinct was to take another Dreamless Sleep potion. But she could also finish the movie... no, not a good idea. She could eat the rest of the tiramisu. Tempting, but unhealthy. Maybe she should just go back to the hospital and finish- That idea quickly was pushed from her mind. She didn't dare think about what she really wanted to do. She let out a long sigh, and defeatedly went to her room, pulling out the potion.
