He'd owled Mr. Waters ahead of time, and knocked on their door at the time he said he'd be visiting.

He opened the door with a nod to Benjamin. "Come in."

He nodded. "Thanks for seeing me, Mr. Waters."

He nodded. "Have a seat." He gestured to the living room.

He sat down where he'd offered, and when Mr. Waters had sat down, he got straight to it. "Mr. Waters... I'm here to ask your permission to ask Mary to marry me."



Michael Waters

He nodded slowly, his gaze penetrating. He and Mary might be very different in mannerisms, but they had the same dark brown eyes. "Why do you see value in asking my permission?"

"It's tradition, and I respect tradition," he said. "If you don't see me as a good match for Mary, while I think that should be her say in the end, I think she'd appreciate knowing you approved of the match before it happened."

He watched Mr. Waters intently. If he had questions-- Benjamin would answer them.

"I give you my permission."

He nodded, his eyes showing the most of his emotion. "Thank you, Mr. Waters," he said. "I'll try my hardest every day to love and care for your daughter.

"Do you have any questions for me?" he asked.



Michael Waters
Send Me an Owl! - 21:24, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
"No. It's easy to see that you do indeed love and care for my daughter. I need no further reassurance."

He smiled and nodded. "I'm glad to hear it." He stood. "I'm sorry to make this a short visit, but I do have two more places I need to be before dinner. I hope you don't mind."



Michael Waters

"Of course," he said, also standing. "You wouldn't want to keep Mary waiting too long."

"Likewise."
