~“I miss the person I used to be.”
As dessert came to a close, she said, "I was hoping to take Benjamin out to the forest before we headed out, if that's alright."

"Of course! The forest is quite charming at night, but do make sure you're bundled up; it's cold out there."

He smiled at Mary, recognizing her need for escape and nodded. "We'll be sure to do that," he said, standing.

She held back a sigh of relief. That meant Benjamin had her mother's tentative approval.

She smiled as they bundled up and left the house. Once they were away from the door, she visibly relaxed, looking up at Benjamin.

 – 19:24, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

He walked up to her, and took her hand, pulling her into him. He gently pressed a kiss to her lips. "I've been waiting to do that all night."

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

 – 19:33, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

He nodded. "I'm fine. I just hope the white lies about my family don't come back to bite me. Or you."

She nodded. "We'll deal with that if it comes, together. Right now, I do want to show you the forest." She grinned.

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

She led him to the wintry forest. "Welcome to where I spent at least a third of my childhood."

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

 – 19:43, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

He grinned. "It's pretty," he said. "Too bad I chose to opt out of your embarrassment, or I'd be able to truly picture you as a child enjoying your time out here," he said with a wink.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She grinned and took out a picture. It was of her and Teresa when they were 10 and 7 years old. Teresa was dangling upside down from a tree branch above Mary's head, laughing, while Mary stood on a tree branch below her, smiling and waving.

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

 – 19:55, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

"It is quite nice out here. I imagine during the summer it was more fun than now," he said, shivering against the cold a bit.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She wrapped her arms around him again. She was quite used to being cold. "I assume that means you don't want to climb trees tonight?" she said with a wide grin.
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 19:58, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Well, since you're the one who's cold, and you're the one who was interrogated tonight, I do believe I should let you choose what we do for the rest of the evening," she said, her arms still wrapped around him.
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 20:04, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

He kissed her softly. "We can go back to your place or mine. I'm not picky."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Alright, my place then," she said with a smile. "Did you want to... engage in physical pursuits, or watch one of these performances, or something else in mind?"
AaronHill6

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

 – 20:09, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

He chuckled at her terminology. "I'm up for whatever you want, Mary," he said. "Honestly, I came out of that no worse for wear," he said.

"Good. But I'm asking you what you want," she protested with a grin.

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

 – 23:42, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

"We don't have to watch the videos unless you want to," he said. "I wouldn't put you through something like that."

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

 – 23:49, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

He chuckled. "Alright, maybe we can watch one your favorites and... see where things go from there," he added with a wink.



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She steered him in the direction of the forest. "My parents will be out of the country for months still, but they won't mind us being here," she said as they walked into the trees.
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 04:28, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

It was getting to the end of February, but it was a bit nippy out. He cast a warming charm around the area so that it wouldn't be too terribly cold.



MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment
Send Me an Owl! - Echostar 04:33, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She smiled in thanks. "Watch your step- there isn't really a clear path anymore now that all these roots are overgrown. Teresa marked an easier route in the trees, but that's assuming you're a good climber." She hopped over a root.
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 04:34, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He moved easily through the terrain, it reminding him a bit of the forests back home.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
They veered to the right towards the edge of the trees, and soon they came to the place Mary was talking about, with the sun shining over the hill.

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

 – 04:44, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

The place might've been beautiful, but Benjamin really only had eyes for Mary. The way the sun was setting in the sky, it hit her just right, giving her a sort of halo. She was smiling in a way he hadn't seen in weeks, and that, to him, was what was beautiful.



MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She took in the scenery; it had been months since she had made the time to visit this place. A gentle wind lifted her hair, blowing it in the breeze, and she lifted her head and closed her eyes to hear the rustlings of the few leaves that were still clinging to the trees. She smiled, opening her eyes, and turned to Benjamin. "It may not be as green as Ireland; but it's certainly beautiful," she said, sitting down on a soft patch of grass.
AaronHill6

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

 – 04:49, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He sat down next to her. "It's not nearly as beautiful as you are."



MaryWaters

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

 – 04:52, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He kissed her back one arm moving around her waist.

When they broke apart, her gaze searched his, her own eyes filled with love, gratitude, peace, and happiness.
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 04:57, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He gently caressed her cheek with his thumb, wondering if this is what it was to be completely at peace.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She closed her eyes, breathing in the outside air and taking in this precious moment of tranquility. Then she opened her eyes, her gaze sparkling with happiness and mischief. "So... Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans? Acid Pops? Or Pumpkin Pasties?"
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:00, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

"Save the pasties. If anything goes awry, the pasties can fix the situation," he said with a chuckle.



MaryWaters

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

 – 05:03, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He rolled his eyes. "Fine. We'll start with the Acid Pops."



MaryWaters

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

 – 05:07, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He followed suit, swiftly giving his own a lick up and down.



MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"The trick with these is to lick it swiftly, wait a few seconds to let the acid die down, then repeat. If you leave it against your bare tongue for too long, that's when the holes form."
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:13, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He nodded, taking that in. He gave it another careful lick or two, and waited, wrinkling his nose as his tongue tingled.

"You have to admit it's got a good tangy taste to it, even if it's hard to eat," she said, licking hers with ease.
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:17, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He nodded. "Too bad it comes with a high-maintenance packaging," he said with a chuckle, taking another lick or two.

"Everything that's worth having comes with trials worth withstanding," she said almost absently, looking out at the horizon.
AaronHill6

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 05:21, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He looked over at her. "Are you talking about the candy, or life in general?"



MaryWaters
Mary Waters - Apartment

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She looked at him again. "I guess life in general. It's a quote from one of my favorite songs."
AaronHill6

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

 – 05:25, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

She leaned against him as she swiftly finished her lollipop, the song playing on repeat in her head.
AaronHill6

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

 – 05:28, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He took another few licks, and a few minutes later, the candy was gone, and his tongue, though tingling, still intact.

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

 – 05:32, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He stood up as well, taking her hand, looking at her a bit confused, but trusting.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She had never done this before... but in the light of the sunset, with the man she loved and trusted right in front of her, she decided to give it a try. She held one of his hands and put her other hand on his shoulder. She gazed deep into his eyes, then began to sing. "This road... is anything but simple...."
AaronHill6

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

 – 05:39, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

He looked at her with wonder as she began to sing. It wasn't anything like watching her on videos. This was... real. And it was beautiful.

She kept her eyes locked lovingly on him as she sang. When the song ended, she looked up at him, a tiny smile on her face.

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

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