Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

His surprise had her chuckling as she looked over toward him fondly. It was so improper, how they had gone about this, which where Fletcher was concerned, surprised her a little bit, but she wouldn't change it. Not for anything. "It's not terribly unusual for me not to come home. I've been known to spend the night in the aviary now and then, but I do wonder what Mrs. Sweeney will think." Though if this were her home situation, that would surely come to an end quickly. Eva bit her lip, a mischievous twinkle in her eye. Then however, it was his turn to surprise her. As he nuzzled in, Eva hadn't any idea he'd already been looking at cottages for them. If she hadn't already fallen head over heels for him, she would have, and did all over again.

Making sure she kept cuddled into him, she rolled over and propped herself up on her elbows to look at him. The glimmer in her eye was altogether different now. Brushing her hair back over her shoulder, she smiled slowly. "Really?" He'd always been so sure if this, always a step ahead of her, how was she supposed to make up for lost time? If she'd known, she may have conquered some of her fears sooner. Well, at least she knew what are had to do now; attempt to get her dad on board. She knew he'd be a hard sell, and though Eva would not let his opinion dictate the outcome they'd already decided on, it would be nice if he was on board.

Leaning in to kiss him slowly, Eva kept it short, moving back just a fraction so she could look him in the eyes, "Thank you." Eva was thankful for a lot of reasons and she knew it sounded a little out of place at the moment, but she wanted him to know just how grateful she was for him.

“It started out as a feeling
which then grew into a hope.”

Ahh, Mrs. Sweeney. Yes, Fletcher was definitely going to hear about this from the housekeeper he had a feeling. It would be alright though. If he knew any better, the woman would take pride in the fact she'd helped with the matchmaking or something. It seemed most older women liked to do that sort of thing. He knew his mother did, at least, so chances were she'd take some credit for the turn of events. Of course, she'd likely give him a good scolding first. He'd take it though. It was all worth it as he looked up to Eavan and saw the happiness in her face.

He chuckled again as she took a turn at looking at him with shock. He nodded simply. "Really," he echoed with a smile, "After out talk in the aviary. We haven't exactly been going by the books on anything here so I though I may as well get a head start on securing a home." It was probably a bit of a bold maneuver on his part. There was no surety that they were going to remain together after everything that had happened, at least it hadn't been said out loud. He had had his hopes though and he felt even more sure after what they'd just shared together. It had been more than just have sex. They'd made love and it had been the perfect start to yet another chapter of their roller coaster of a life.

The short kiss was a sweet one, one that had him humming with delight. The thank you was a bit abrupt and out of place but he didn't mind in the slightest. He brought a hand up to rub a thumb over her cheek as he smiled up at her. "Anything for you, Eavan," he answered, sincerely meaning it.

BEE-utiful Set!
