    Roberto was relieved when Miss Dippet did not find his actions repulsive. On the contrary, she seemed to be very pleased if a little unsteady. He waited for her answer to his questions and he noted the day. Thursday. That was only a couple of days away. Roberto had never done this before so he could not help a mild case of nerves.

    "All right. That sounds like a plan," Roberto said, not quite sure if this was the right way of things - he had never courted a woman before or even come close, if he really thought about it. The current plan seemed fine to him, though.

    Roberto then had to chuckle as Miss Dippet said that he could kiss her again, if he liked. Feeling emboldened by their mutual agreement, he leaned in to give her another kiss. "Would you like to head back in for a dance?" He asked once he'd pulled back once more. Merlin. He had not expected the night to quite turn out this way but he was still rather pleased with the direction that it had taken.

    Breathe, Ophelia had to forcefully remind herself as he broke away from their second kiss (Merlin, their second kiss!) If she didn't breathe, she was going to faint. She could already feel the first warning signs of it coming on: her toes and fingertips were tingling already and her head was spinning. As overwhelming as this all was, she did not want to pass out in Mr. Devine's arms! Though of all the places to faint... No, no, she couldn't allow it. He'd have to carry her back into the ballroom, and everyone would see and start talking... and Mr. Devine would probably try to find her grandfather, so that Armando could take her home, which would prove both challenging and confusing for the darling man, since Armando wasn't here. And then--Oh, Merlin! What if Mr. Dawlish came over to try and assist while she was unconscious? What if he spoke to Mr. Devine? She wouldn't be there to mediate, to explain--oh, Merlin, what if he didn't want her after that? She might have gotten kissed and then been left with a future just as uncertain as before--or even more so, if her honor was now sullied by the event!

    Breathing was difficult, because now she felt as though she might be on the verge of hyperventilating. But she forced herself to breathe--calm, measured breaths--and when Mr. Devine suggested that they go inside for a dance, her head had stopped spinning quite so much.

    "I don't think there's anything I should like more!" she said enthusiastically, with a grin that was so gleeful it could not be anything but sincere.
    Roberto smiled down at the young lady. She seemed to be a bit dazed though he could hardly blame her! He was in much the same straits. As he had said earlier, he was not a forward type of man and yet here he had kissed her twice in one night. And before any formal courting agreement had been reached with her guardian.

    Roberto chuckled as Miss Dippet agreed to the dance that he had proposed. She seemed to be quite happy; the somber mood that she had been in earlier seemingly having dissipated. Turning back towards the school, Roberto was quite a happy man indeed as he escorted his fair maiden back to the fray.
