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)

When your mum thinks you're gay for your best friend (but you probably are)
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

December 30, 1888 - Denbright’s Emporium of Wonderful Things
There she was again, in the shop of children's toys. This time the child accompanying her was her eldest son rather than her eldest daughter. Of course, the reason for this was because they were shopping for Emily's birthday present. Even now, Juniper was far more comfortable going places with either her children, husband, or her trusted lady's maid. Still cautious, concerned about being grabbed again by an idiot. Along with the fact that such a thing could ruin her good name even further. Even though she was sure of her purity and love for her husband, humans seemed to be too stupid to understand such things.

As of the moment, she was too busy looking at the toys, for the perfect one must be somewhere, to notice the tantrum that David was having. "Hush darling, I'm looking for something." She muttered absentmindedly as she continued her search. She hadn't even heard what the boy said. Why couldn't he complain to his nanny, that was the woman's job! What she hadn't noticed was the boy had to go red from frustration of being ignored. Actually red! Not the normal blushing of the cheeks red that would happen normally. No. His skin was actually turning red. But still, the veela took no notice of the first sign of magic.

As was Elwin’s nature, a visit to the club meant a visit to High Street. He had small things to get, sweets for Evelyn, toys for the children, perhaps something else might capture his attention. But for right now he was focused on finding something for Ares and Ambrosia. With the birth of Araminta only a few months ago he didn’t want his older children to think they were any less loved, and so he had planned a detour to Denbright’s. He always found the perfect item for the children there.

He was looking at a set of magical toy soldiers, lined neatly on the shelves, when a young boy began whining to his mother. This seemed to happen when children were brought into such places and given the frequency Elwin ignored it. That was until he rounded the corner.

A little boy stood staring at a red haired woman the most unnatural shade of red. The woman absentmindedly hushed the boy, but the boy was having none of it. It wasn’t really his place to step in, but she seemed the only one around. “Pardon me, ma’am.” Elwin stepped toward her, nodding at the boy, “Is he typically the shade of a tomato?” Perhaps that was the problem. But if the boy were anything like Ares it may be a sign of magic about to get out of hand. Young witches and wizards had a habit of displaying their magic in the most entertaining ways.

Upon being approached and addressed, Juniper's guard went up as she looked at the man with caution. Well... her charm hadn't seemed to take affect yet. Yet. Or was he just being helpful because of her veela charm. Perhaps he was always selfish when not hopelessly in love... or thinking that he was. Still, she instinctively took note that her child's nanny and the young boy were at least between them in case the man suddenly began acting strange. She'd have protection and witnesses that nothing was of her own fault.

But then the words caught up to her. Glancing down at her son, she let out a shriek. How had that happened? "What did you do?" She said to her son, like an idiot. Of course he probably hadn't even realized that he had done anything. But still, the boy smiled at the sudden show of attention. The red of his skin was suddenly a bright yellow, similar to that of his sun drawings. Her eyes widened further. Had he ever done that before?

At first the woman only looked at him as if he had grown a second head. But then she realized her son and went into quite a state. Her question was wild and crazy and Elwin was willing to bet this was not normal circumstance. The second her eyes fixed on the boy he turned yellow. Likely if she were already distraught he shouldn’t point out that this was likely from her attention to the boy. “I think perhaps a show of magic?” Elwin put forth helpfully.

First sign of magic? At least that made sense. "Fix it." She said, really to no one in particular. She was sure that her son couldn't. The nanny might, or the man before them. But her attention was on the ever changing boy, who was simply glad to be receiving attention.

Fix it? Elwin certainly didn’t believe he had the skills or credentials to do so. He’d rather worry of harming the boy. His children hadn’t developed such displays of magic he honestly wasn’t sure what he would do if they did. “I think perhaps it might be safer to take him to the hospital and see if a healer might be more help?” He said this gingerly, worried that the woman would only anger further at this suggestion.

Juniper wasn't angry. Quite flustered, but not angry. She couldn't do spells to fix it. Her son appeared to be the one doing the magic in the first place, and the man seemed to be a wizard. So the two most likely of those to fix it at the current time were them. The nanny likely would not know what to do for this sort of thing, as the woman simply looked between the wizard, veela, and young child. "Perhaps your right. Come, David." Upon her saying his name, the boy was practically glowing.

At least the woman seemed to see the sense of his plan. “I can accompany if you if you’d like.” Elwin offered, that way if something went wrong at least he might be able to do something about it. He said as much, “If it gets any worse I may be able to lend a hand.” He suggested. Although why the mother wasn’t trying to do anything was quite beyond him.

Perhaps having a wizard come along would be best. And hiring a new nanny later would be far better. Since this one looked like she was going to faint by simply seeing a first act of magic. How weak of the woman. Juniper was a veela, she had an excuse to be flustered. The nanny on the other hand? Not so much. "Alright. Though, and this is going to sound strange, please keep your distance." It seemed distance at least made this man not as affected by her charms. Likely he was typically not so quick to be helpful. She's seen that happen with some men. Being more than happy to help her while paying no mind to anyone else's troubles.

It was a bit strange of a request, but Elwin could hardly fault the woman. He was after all a strange man. “Of course.” He replied with a nod of his head before putting his hat on and gesturing to the door. “Shall we?

There it was. The strange look due to her request. At least it wasn't a look of longing. Only her husband deserved to be allowed to look at her that way. He had earned her. Nodding, she headed out the door.
