“It’s a ball in London,” Ruby replied. “And my friend, Mr. Zabini, he mentioned he might be going...” She was blushing and she started fidgeting with her hands. Topaz had heard about Savino Zabini, bu...

Ruby knew the scandal of the Zabinis and she understood what Savino tried to say. She didn’t believe that he was like his purist relatives, otherwise he wouldn’t keep talking to her. Her father had be...

Blushing, Ruby said: “Well, Papa, it’s different...” She didn’t know what much else to add. She bit her lip and looked down shyly.

Ruby had always been the more social of the two. That is, when they had been children. After Topaz was turned into a werewolf and their family received shame for it, she had turned inwards. She had be...

Ruby had a point about people finding out that “Ruby” Urquart had been to two places simultaneously. Topaz also hadn’t been invited to that other event (she rarely was). In any case, sending her to th...

“I suppose, but the thing is that I want to go to a different event happening the same day, so I can’t feign sickness, or Mrs. Sallington will know I lied to her and I’ll lose her as a customer.” Some...

School had been a great source of anxiety for Ruby starting her fifth year. Socially, she felt like everyone’s eyes were glued on her, causing her to dread having to leave her bed in the morning. This...

Ruby was already very prejudiced about how the event would go, so she didn’t think there was a way to make it interesting. Once she got her mind set into something, it was hard to change it. She could...

And just like that, she was a “debutante”. Ruby didn’t think of herself as one because she had already started offering her services in the arts of Divination. There was a half finished birth chart on...

Ruby wondered what Savino would have done if he had seen one of the contestants dying. She believed that he would have been the sort to try and prevent the tragedy from happening. The problem was that...

Ruby smiled, glad that her father hadn’t overreacted on the mention of an adult male who wasn’t a relative making her acquaintance. Not that he would, not when he’d allowed Delight to work around men....

3rd of March, 1891 Aunt Evelyn, Is it too late to book an appointment sometime during Easter week? I suppose all of my yearmates that are preparing for the Season will use the holidays as an oppor...

1st of March, 1891 Dearest Papa, Alright. I suppose that there won’t be a worse punishment for my cousin than her having to share Aunt Evelyn with me for her Season. Yours, Ruby

1st of March, 1891 Dearest Papa, I suppose it was you who asked her to reach out to me. The truth is, I would rather not go to the modiste with Aunt Evelyn. I wouldn’t have minded, if her daugh...

25th of February, 1890 Aunt Evelyn, How kind of you to offer you assistance. Surely, you must have your hands full with Demelza already and Merlin isn’t she high maintenance regarding such thing...

At her father’s comment, Ruby thought that it was perhaps reckless to be so ready to tell him of Mr. Zabini. Like most fathers, he would worry that Savino would lead her astray. Then again, he couldn’...

"Just the beginning," Ruby replied. She didn't feel like watching the whole thing, it didn't strike her as something she'd be interested in. She had also agreed to meet up with Delight and sit somewhe...

"It is arranged then, I will write to Miss Shacklebolt to see when it is most comfortable to visit." With that out of the way, Ruby turned her attention to a different matter: "I hope that trip to...

Ruby sighed, which allowed her to calm down a bit. It was understandable for her father to have his doubts about her chosen career. Divination wasn't the most highly esteemed magical art and fortune t...

Ruby was somewhat confused of her father's question, though she got the general gist of what he was trying to say. "Professor Shacklebolt runs her business through her home. Many people who seek h...

The gears if insecurity started moving in Ruby's brain, crafting an assumption that her father was asking that because he didn't believe her future career to be an actual job. This was, in truth, Ruby...
