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)

The Matchmaking Menace
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

My cup of tea
It had been almost two weeks or so since Miss Lacey had taken up residence with his youngest sister. It was not a situation that could last forever, obviously. Miss Lacey's guardian didn't seem concerned as to her whereabouts either. Likely knowing he would be the one painted the villain, the scoundrel. For now, though - he wanted Miss Laceys only worry to be about what to wear for supper or some such.

His sisters family along with Miss Lacey had come over for afternoon tea and would apparently be staying for the rest of the weekend. Richard suspected Lenora of attempting to act as a matchmaker if the 'discreet' glances towards him whenever he so much as breathed in Miss Lacey's direction were anything to go by.

It was a restless evening and soon Richard wandered into the library, his eyes landing on Miss Lacey who seemed to have been of the same idea. "Are you settled in quite well?" He asked, feeling slightly awkward about the entire situation.

Of course Killian couldn't be bothered to investigate. Though she was surprised that he hadn't gone looking for her while he was drunk. It seemed that his mind seemed to be everywhere. Guilt was not one of the things she felt that his mind landed on though. The thought of him haunted her. Even now. But she tried to distract herself when she could. Mrs. ____ seemed quite lovely of a host. How long could this last though?

Perhaps Lenora had noticed the brief looks that Regina gave to the pictures placed of Richard around the house. Or perhaps it was simply a sister like instinct. She wouldn't know anything about that. But today was certainly a day to hint at matchmaking. And Regina could not help but hope that it was successful. Though she tried to keep that to herself. Did he notice the hint of a blush that she had whenever he said something to spark such a thing? Or her heart flutter when they got just a bit too close?

And the fluttering began moments after Regina had sat down to read a book in the library. Catching sight of him, she couldn't help the smile that appeared on her face. "As well as I can be. Your sister certainly is a kind hostess." It was nice to be in such a warm, loving household. It felt like years since she had last felt the slightest bit at home.
