"That makes a lot of sense. If we were both manic this probably wouldn't work. We'd have a lot of fun? I guess we could call it. That is one thing I know for sure!" He laughed. "I don't think of you as crazy hysteria though. Maybe internally, but you give off a really good vibe. You might feel a little confuzzled on the inside but you look like you have it all together on the outside."

She shook her head. "Hysteria may have been an overexaggeration," she said. "I'm not an internal mess all the time, but it's nice to know I can put on a positive front at least."

"May have been?" Rex chuckled. "No, you're right. It may have been, but it also may have been a good fit. I know, I'd like to think that I know you aren't a total mess on the inside. I think it would have spread to the outside if you were. You're strong Hope, I know that much. You're not putting on a front, positive is just who you are."

She smiled. "Thanks," she said simply.

Rex looked around at the floor half-smiling at the trail of footprints. "We should probably get that paint off your feet, unless you wanted to do a couple more."

Hope Black

 – 00:54, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope looked down at her feet. "I think I'm good. We can wash."


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 01:02, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rex walked to the little washroom in the corner, he grabbed a towel and soaked it in soap and water. Coming back toward Hope with a stool he places it behind her and tap the top. "Have a seat." He knelt down and looked up at her waiting for her to sit.

Hope sat down. His gesture looked as though he was about to wash her feet for her-- a gesture that touched her more than words could speak, though her eyes betrayed all the emotion.


Rex wb

 – 01:13, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Putting an empty paint pan between the floor and Hope's feet, Rex took her left foot into one hand and gripped the towel tightly letting warm soapy water run, and drip over the pan. He did the same with her right foot, before very carefully removing each different layer of paint from her skin.

Hope tried to keep her foot still, and let Rex guide the situation, because every once and awhile.... it tickled.


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 01:20, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"Don't tell me you are ... ticklish." Rex looked up at Hope with a grin, trailing one finger slowly along the bottom of her right foot.

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

 – 01:22, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope busted out laugh. "Rex! What're you doing! I don't want to kick you!" she said laughing, doing her best not to squirm.


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 01:26, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"Stubborn paint." He laughed looking back down at Hope's feet carefully getting the paint from between her toes. "I'll try to be more careful. I would really not like to get kicking the face, or anywhere else."

Hope Black

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

 – 01:29, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope clapped a hand over her face. "No," she said, removing it ever so slightly, so her voice wouldn't be muffled. "I imagine that, someday in the distant future, you might change your mind about kids."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 01:34, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"Uhm." Rex stumbled over the words that caught in his throat. "What makes you say that?" He tried to keep the sound of his voice at a normal volume.

Hope Black

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

 – 01:41, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"Oh, Rex, I'm not saying I need to have kids, and I certainly don't see anything that far... um. Yeah. Start over, Hope," she paused. "You might not want children now, but I could see a... paternal instinct in you somewhere."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 01:47, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rex laughed, Hope talking to herself in third person relaxing him a little. "Every man has a paternal instinct, even boys do. You'll see it with pets and siblings. That doesn't mean anyone of them would make good parents. I don't know if I would. You're right. Right now, kids are not even my radar. Then again neither was a relationship." He peeked up at Hope. "So... maybe I'm wrong about that too."

Hope Black

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

 – 01:51, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope locked eyes with him, leaning in just a little. "I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Rex. You're a good man. You might not think you'd make a good parent, but.... I think you're selling yourself short." She leaned back again. "Besides. I've heard that the woman becomes a mother when she finds out she's pregnant-- the man doesn't become a father til he sees his kid for the first time."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 01:57, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

He sighs. "I'm not selling myself short, it's uncertainty. It might even be a little insecurity. I'm not a parent now, and I haven't spent a lot of time around little kids. I'm a firm believer in the saying you never know until you try. I didn't know I was good at art until I tried it, I didn't know I how much I'd love tattooing until I did it. I didn't think I would ever ... " He stammers. "You could right. Maybe after you become a mother." He winked. "We'll know for sure."

Hope Black

 – 02:00, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope smiled. "Wait, you didn't think you would ever... what?"


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 02:03, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"... Wash your feet?" Rex slides his pointer finger along the bottom of Hope's foot again trying to distract her.

Hope Black

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

 – 02:07, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope shrieked. "Rex! Stop it!" She looked at him, slightly breathless for a moment. "You didn't think you would ever what?"


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 02:16, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

He thought for moment, if he kept tickling her she might kick him in the face and that would really distract her. He talked himself out of that just as quickly and sighed again. "I didn't think I'd ever be in a real relationship. One where we both have a completely genuine interest in another person. What I was going to say, was I didn't think I would ever fall in love."

Hope Black

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

 – 02:19, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

If Hope had been breathless before, that knocked all the wind out of her. She stared at him for a moment before sliding off the stool, squatting down to his level and kissing him.


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 02:23, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rex ran his hand along the side of Hope's neck and though her hair along the back of her head, he pulled gently at the same time pulling himself away from her. "I wasn't expecting that, but I don't mind it either." Rex resumed kissing Hope as he let go of Hope's hair, he let his arms fall around her waist holding her tightly he rose to his feet.

Hope Black

 – 02:28, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope let her arms wrap around his neck as she stood with him, kissing him for a few moments. She pulled away for a moment. "I love you, too, Rex." she said. "I have for a long time."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 02:32, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rex was taken aback he hadn't made it far enough to fully say it like Hope had. He'd never managed to have as much courage as she did, and that simple fact about her inspired him. "A long time. You mean you loved me before you met me?"

Hope Black

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

 – 02:35, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She laughed. "No," she said. "But the day we were in Hogsmeade, and you made those teacups sing? I think that was probably the moment I knew."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 02:38, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"I was joking, and it was line from a song." He laughed admitting it. "So? If I had dome something a little bigger right of the bat you would have known sooner than later? Am I right?"

Hope Black

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

 – 02:40, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope giggled, her arms sliding down to encircle his waist. "Maybe," she said. "But as it is, that's when I knew, and what's the point of wondering what if at this point, right?"


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 02:44, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rex hadn't let go of Hope yet not really seeing a need to, unless she started to squirm. "It's fun. When you think of negative what ifs that loses the appeal. We're talking about making us happen sooner. Imagine where we would be as a couple if I hadn't been so afraid to admit my feelings."

Hope Black

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

 – 02:50, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She nodded. "Maybe if I'd been more outright with mine, too," she said. "But as it is, we're happy. And that's what counts."


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 02:54, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"Yeah we are!" He agreed a little more enthusiastically than he meant to. "You don't think we would have been unhappy do you? Actually don't answer that. I see what you meant now. What's the point in wondering."

Hope Black

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

 – 02:59, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"Precisely," she said, leaning in for another kiss.


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 03:01, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rex smiled. "Luckiest man in the world." Then kissed Hope back.

 – 03:08, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She sighed when they parted. "I wish I could just stay here all the time," she said. "But with Holly gone, I should really be back in the Hospital Wing."

"Yeah, no yeah." He nodded thinking to himself. How does she always make me forget about everything else. "You wouldn't want to be here all the time. A lot of it, the majority of the day, maybe." He joked. "You should go, I always forget you have some place to be. You aren't just important to me, the kids at the castle need you too."

Hope Black

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

 – 03:21, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She smiled. "You're important to me, too," she said. "But yeah, I do have others counting on me to be there. I'll come by when I've got some time again. School's almost done for the term, so there's all of summer break..." she said with a wink.

 – 03:27, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

A tune came to mind the moment Hope winked. "Thank you kindly Miss Hope, I was thinking you felt that way. It does my heart good to hear you say it. When you do have the time, you know exactly where you can find me. I'm looking forward to summer, I was starting to worry that Hogwarts might be a year round school."

Hope Black

 – 03:30, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She shook her head. "Nope. We get a nice long summer break," she said. "Three whole months."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 03:35, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

He grinned. "Three months. That's a good long time. You didn't have a whole lot of previous engagements planned did you?"

Hope Black

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

 – 03:38, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She shook her head. "Spending some time with my goddaughter, of course," she said. "And spending lots of time with my wonderful boyfriend."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 03:44, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"I can work around that." He nodded. "A goddaughter has to have time with her godmother, I'm pretty sure that relationship is going to be an important one. It's this wonderful boyfriend that I worry about." He joked. "You better get going. I could do this for days."

Hope Black

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

 – 03:50, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She smiled. "You're probably right. I could too." She pushed the door open. No part of her wanted to leave, but she knew she needed to. "See ya later, Rex," she said.


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 04:02, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

"You know what they say. Time flies when you're having fun." He sighed watching her push open the door, and his lips moved to one side of his mouth. "See ya." He kept staring at her, never once taking his eyes off of Hope.

Hope Black

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

 – 04:08, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

She stared at him for a moment longer. Any longer, and she'd kiss him again, and never want to leave. She finally closed the door and Apparated away before she made a silly mistake and lost her job.

Rex stood in a corner to the left of the shop admiring the floor, he had worked around Hope's footprints, leaving intact her turquoise trail along the center of the room. the right half of the room inspired by a night in Hogsmeade with Hope's yellow footprints as lights in the dark. The other half of the room inspired by the waterfall with Hope's purple footprints as the flower covered stones.

 – 23:09, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Hope Apparated outside the arthouse, and then walked in, knowing she was welcome. She smiled as she watched him staring at the floor. "Hey," she said.


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 23:12, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Rex looked up toward Hope and grinned. "Hey." He walked toward her too anxious to see her to wait for her to get to him. "I would have kept staring at the floor, since there happens to be something interesting there. But, you're too beautiful not to look at." Rex kissed Hope hello in lieu of saying it. "How do you feel about a little trip?"


Hope Black

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

 – 23:15, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Hope accepted the kiss. "Every girl should be greeted that way," she said with a grin. "A little trip? With you? Always."


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 23:21, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Rex pulled back still wearing a grin. "If you were every girl I would've greeted you differently." He joked. "No, not me with me. I meant a trip with my cousin Clyde." He teased." Of course, I meant a trip with me. Do you think I would let you go away without trying be somewhere near you trying not to smothering you with affection?"

 – 23:27, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

"Clyde Shaw? The history professor? I didn't realize you were related!" she said with a laugh. Her eyes sparkled with happiness. "So where did you have in mind for the trip?"

"We do have the same last name Hope, but we don't look very much alike. No reason you should know. I had completely forgotten he worked as a teacher until I ran into him, a few weeks ago. So. If you're up to it, I was thinking I would show you some of the places I know in the U.S. That means a little New Hampshire, New York, Florida, and California. We don't have to do it all, I only planned on spending a little time bit of time there. And, we can go absolutely anywhere you want."

 – 23:37, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Hope gawked a little, slightly thrown. When he had said "little trip" she thought he meant to a nearby park... not across oceans. "Wow," she said. "I've never been to America. That sounds like quite a lot for a little trip. Maybe just one state... you know, to start?" she said, realizing as she was talking that he may not have been entirely serious.
