    1st February, 1887

    “You’re getting far too big for this you know?” Cassie said emphatically to her son, knowing full well that the happy toddler in her arms would have no idea of what she really meant. He was beginning to understand her sometimes but Cassie held the secret belief that he was selectively deaf when he wished to be and she carefully lowered him to the ground.

    He preferred to walk now anyway - or at least that was what she told herself as she navigated Diagon Alley with her son's hand held tight and the package she had been struggling with now under her free arm. The lunchtime rush at the pub must be petering out by now so she didn't feel too awful taking Theo inside with her. It was her only way back to Irvingly after all, though now she was inside the warmth that spread through her skin made her long to remain. Her son would be cold - it wouldn't be terrible to let him warm up by the fire would it?

    Ordering hot chocolates she took a seat, pulling Theo onto her lap as she waited.

    "There you are love, nice and warm," she said sweetly, rubbing her nose against Theo's and making him laugh. It would have been an idyllic moment were it not for the fact she looked up and sitting opposite her, without her noticing his presence till now when it was far too awkward to move, was a man she had hoped to avoid for...well, forever really.

    "Micajah...hello."

    Smooth.

    @Micajah Vablatsky

    Micajah was only passing through the Leaky Cauldron; he had to go to the library. It was only the familiar face of the most legendary seer in his lifetime that caught his attention - as a scholar, he was obligated to be interested, but he also knew her far better than was decent.

    (He'd seen her naked. That's where we're going with this.)

    Micajah drifted over. He had no real intention of loitering - he had research to do, after all - but it would probably be helpful to reestablish contact with such a noteworthy seer. Especially if the contact was sexual.

    He glanced at the child and smiled brightly at the boy. He had to be one of Miss Trelawney's half-brothers; the boy looked tremendously like her.

    "Miss Trelawney," Micajah said cheerfully, "It's been a very long time."

    The downfall of her determination to distance herself from Mr Vablatsky forevermore was of course the fact that he was so very nice. She liked him and it was really her fault all of this had come about – or possibly her mother’s for setting her such a dreadful example as to when and where it was acceptable to relinquish one’s virtue.

    “Has it really?” She asked with a nervous smile. “Surely it’s been no more than a year or two?” She said as she clutched her nineteen month old to her, hoping against hope that he didn’t notice that Theo had remarkably similar eyes to his own. She stroked Theo’s hair as her son looked up at the stranger inquisitively, eyes wide with interest as they always were whenever be beheld someone or something new.

    Could Theo know somehow? Instinctively was it engraved on his heart?

    The real question was 'when had they had sex?' and Micajah took a moment to think of the answer. It really was a shame that they'd stopped seeing each other after that. In school, he used to consider Miss Trelawney to be one of his friends, and now she was more elusive than anything. 

    "Two and a half, almost," Micajah said once he'd placed it in time. The boy had to be Freya's youngest; he was so small.

    "How have you been? Are you still working in Irvingly?"

    He didn't need the Sight to find her if he wanted to; he could have at any time. He just hadn't, for an amalgam of reasons. For one, he was a busy and easily distracted academic. For another - what if, after all that, she didn't want to see him?

    Thus far he didn’t seem to be showing any signs of connecting the dots between the last time they had seen each other and the physical result of that night that she held in her arms so tightly, which was a blessing. And there was no hint that any member of his family – who Cassie knew to be significantly more gifted with the Sight than Micajah himself was – had learned the truth and spilled the beans.

    On the other hand it was curious that she had bumped into his father so very recently…

    “Yes, at Chance L’Amour still,” had he ever known that was where she worked actually? Oh well, he knew now and perhaps he would visit like his father had? It wasn’t so very far after all.

    “I seem to have settled in Irvingly without really meaning to, but I do like it enormously. It’s nice not to be so…well…you know how it is when you have gifts. But the muggles don’t care a jot,” she said with a wry smile. “And you? I read your last book.”

    And based on that she had been slightly worried for his sanity.
