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...

Craving You
September 27th, 1888
Asha Bilton

Tala was not one for drama- or even big displays of affection, but holy Merlin she could not stop thinking about Mr. Bilton, her dear Asha, since the letter from him had arrived this morning! How could she have missed the signs? What was she doing with Gervaise when it was so clear to her now? Oh, what was she going to tell Gervaise? She still cared for him, of course she did, but not like this!

She had to find him! The Cafe! He was always there with his friends! Or at least that's what Eileen had said in the past!

She hadn't even bothered to make sure she was all gussied up, certainly he couldn't hold it against her! She smelled of pine and fresh cut wood and her hair was windswept from being outside all morning mooning over him, but by lunch she just couldn't take it anymore! Tal had apparated straight to the Cauldron- usually what she did when she went to see Gervaise, but not today, today she was going to find her one true love!

Cheeks flushed from the brisk walk through the streets of London, Tala turned golden brown eyes toward the window of the cafe and what luck! There he was! She stormed through the door, admittedly pretty dramatically and grinned. "There you are! I've been pining for you all day!" She said as she sauntered right up to him.

Most days looked rosy and full of potential to the unlucky Asha even when half of them ended in near disasters, but since he'd opened the mail this morning he had known that today would not be a disaster filled day. No, it would be a rosy day, Asha had decided, for Miss Moreno had written to him. He'd hardly known Tala beyond her friendship with Eileen, but his heart soared at the thought of her. How had he not realized this before? How had he simply sat passive when she came around? Asha was baffled, he wasn't the sort to sit around broken hearted for years, but it almost seemed, when he looked back, to be just that case.

He had been so caught up in his thoughts that he'd been unable to work on developing his photos for the paper and at midday had called it quits. He'd work on them tomorrow. For now he'd head to the cafe for a pint, perhaps Eileen would even know where he might find Tala.

Asha had just settled down at the table with a pint in hand when the door was thrown open. There she was. There was his Tala! His Tala! The words sung in his heart as he beamed at her. "Here I am!" He agreed with a goofy smile on his lips. Pining. She'd been pining for him. Oh, how had he let so many days and weeks go by unused? "Have you now?" He asked with a chuckle, looking down at her as she sauntered up to him. Boldly, as if it had never been a question between them, he wrapped his arms around her waist and looked down at her an almost teasing light to his eyes.

Amazing Elaine set!
How had she never noticed just how handsome he was? And tall to boot! She was so tiny, their children would clearly end up perfectly in the middle. Tala allowed herself to be eagerly enveloped in his embrace, her cheek coming to rest gently against his chest as her arms wrapped around his middle. Tal spent one selfish minute soaking it in, feeling his heartbeat just for her, sighing contentedly.

"I have," She admitted a little shyly, leaning back just a fraction to look up at him. "You're all I could think about, all morning." It was just awful being separated from him. How had she ever managed before? "Please tell me we can spend the... afternoon together." She wanted to say the rest of the day, but that would include the evening and that was a little brash! Forever wouldn't be long enough! A blush crept into her cheeks, and she bit her lip in anticipation of his answer.
