Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

Sunny Side Up
March 31st, 1888 — Padmore Park
Finnian Byrne
Hope was immensely enjoying her Easter holiday thus far. Her family had hosted their own private little egg hunt and now they had scattered about to look for the eggs hidden around Hogsmeade. The petite blonde had not had any luck so far, her little basket terribly empty as she walked down the path in Padmore Park. Her chaperon was settled on a bench nearby and Hope honestly kept forgetting the maid was even there.

Finally spotting a pretty pink egg, she moved to pick it up. A look of disappointment colored her features as the egg just broke and left a yellow mess of yolk in her hands. It made her feel terribly sad and disappointed as she used her clean hand to try to find her handkerchief, only to find herself being offered one by a gentleman. "Oh, thank you," Hope said in gratitude as she accepted the help.

Finnian was Irish and lived in Irleand, which meant Hogsmeade was only visited when there was a reason to visit. Luckily, Bree's attempts at hurling Finnian were very stellar reasons to be in Hogsmeade, on top of the Easter festivities that were going on. He'd been chatting with a stranger about quidditch until the other gentleman very rudely announced that he had no intention to continue the conversation; maybe Finnian's comment about Kenmare being the obviously superior team (despite the results of the pro quidditch league cup) was a bit offensive.

Nevertheless, he'd continued on his day without as much as a second thought to the conversation, and eventually ended up wandering into Padmore Park. He continued walking until he stumbled upon a very pretty (though perhaps a little young) girl with egg all over her hand. How odd; there didn't seem to be any chickens or chicken coops around. He approached her and offered up his handkerchief with a smile, prompting her to thank him.

"'Tis only the polite thing to do, my lady," he responded in an exaggerated, subtlety flirtatious tone. She had very pretty eyes, and her hair was so blonde — he wondered if it was naturally like that, or if some freak magical accident had made it so fair. "I don't suppose you regularly carry around eggs?" More teasing.

Hope couldn't help a girlish giggle at the mans words and tone, subtle as it was. "Oh, of course not," Hope chuckled when he asked if she carried eggs around, a faint blush coloring her cheeks. "There's eggs hidden all about Hogsmeade. Some turn into things but I found one of the duds," Hope said, unable to help a playful sort of pout. He was particularly handsome and charming, in her opinion, and Hope was not immune to being attracted to such men.

Finnian was by no means as susceptible to falling for pretty faces as Lorcan was, but even he couldn't avoid flirting with women when the woman in question had no issue returning his playful jests. She did seem wealthier than him, though, so he supposed he should pay attention to the way and manner in which he addressed her. The last thing he wanted was to cause gossip by being too forward and risking her reacting similarly — young ladies, from his experienced, were almost always silly ladies. Still, he would at leas continue being his charming self.

"I can't believe the heavens would have forsaken you like that," he teased. "They should know it's rude to treat a young lady like yourself with such disrespect!" At least he could thank the heavens for giving him something to do — or rather, someone to speak with — that morning.

Hope couldn't help but to laugh at his silly words. "Well, they have," she said, more than happy to play along a little while. If anything, there was no harm in making innocent acquaintance of a handsome gent, right? "Will you come to my rescue and help me find another Easter egg?" As it was, she was determined to find herself an egg that would have something fun within its enchantments.

With a cheeky smile, Finnian's gaze fell the the ground below them. Of course there was nothing there, but he wanted to make a show out of it. There was no fun in flirting if they couldn't laugh, and Finnian was determined to make the blonde giggle at any time possible... at least without drawing too much attention from anyone who walked by.

That might be bad and lead to rumors like Lorcan had dealt with.

"I would be glad to, my lady," he teased, motioning with his arm for her to walk ahead of him before adding: "After you, Miss....?" If they were going to run around the park and go egg-chasing, he might as well know her name!
