Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Mistake of the Heart
September 27th, 1888 — Wellingtonshire

It had been a busy morning, Benevolence had been rushing from pillar to post making deliveries. It had been fairly typical until one particular house. The house in which the young lady in residence couldn't be bothered to rise to recieve her flowers, instead she told benevolence to place the flowers on the side board and leave. As she had been positioning the vase she knocked a pink envelope to the floor, an envelope which opened as it hit the ground, the contents shifting and slipping outwards. As Ben's fingers closed around the pretty pink paper, she felt a strange warmth rush up her fingers and arms and she knew EXACTLY where she needed to be.

She stood outside the door of HIS house. A huge bouquet of flowers in her arms, and she was buckling under the weight. She needed to see him. He would love these, she was sure! The story they told was beautiful. When the door didn't immediately open, Benevolence tried again, this time pulling hard on the bell, and then wrapping the glass of the door. Where was he? Perhaps he had already gone out to find her?

Considering they had staff, Alexander didn't typically answer the door. As it was, he was heading out back to work when he heard the doorbell ring and then someone actually knocking. That was a little weird, he thought. Pulling the door open, he was even more perplexed to witness what appeared to be flowers with legs on their front stoop. "Uh, Can I help you?" He asked. Perhaps they were for Grandmother Jena?

From between the greenery she could just make him out. It was him! Benevolence hadn't been expecting for him to answer the door himself, but clearly he was as keen to see her as she was to see him. He was wonderful - so handsome and dashing, and that sweet little look on his face as he pretended that he wasn't expecting her. Perhaps it was best to keep up appearances for the sake of the public.

'A token of affection' Benevolence said from behind the large vase, and she tweaked some of the flowers so she could get a better view of him from behind the greenery. Her heart was thumping in her chest and when she managed to meet his eyes between the flowers. 'For you.' she squeaked, her pale skin flushing bright red and she bit her bottom lip in excitement and anticipation. 'from an admirer....' the words were vague banalities but her tone heavily implied the truth, and her blush was hard to mistake.

Alexander rose an eyebrow before smiling as he unburdened the young woman from the vase. "An admirer, huh? Didn't leave a name?" The blonde asked, completely missing the obvious hint that it was she who was giving him the flowers. She did look flushed, though. "Come in and sit a spell? You look flushed!" They couldn't have delivery girls fainting on their stoop, he didn't think.
