Bellissima's gone a slight quiet without you, Pansy. The croupiers've given away more than they've taken in because they've been preoccupied with your absence and some of the waitresses've said Shorts's been dead distraught. Supposedly he's been carrying around a picture of you with him and he's been crying into it when he reckons no one's looking. You ever planning on coming back?


Millicent? Your offer still good?


By the way, if either of you hear from an Emmet Crawley, don't believe a ruddy word he says. The arse is full of shite.

Yes.

Who is Emmet Crawley?

How much're you asking? Despite Bellissima's unparalleled success, I've still a limited income.

Some arse who thought he could get away with trapping Padma in the corridor. I might've personally escorted him out last night.

32000 Galleons but I suppose I would be willing to accept other offers as long as they are worthwhile.

Should we be expecting a lawsuit?

How about ten and I work out a deal with the minister Padma and I used last August? Congratulations, by the way. I didn't get to tell you as much when I saw you and it kept me tossing and turning all night.

Once his eyes aren't swollen shut anymore, s'pose it could be a possibility.

According to Michael's spell, he asked me to marry him.

Date: 2009-03-26 05:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
I knew he would! That's wonderful!

Isn't it wonderful? Millicent?

Date: 2009-03-26 05:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] millicent-b-.livejournal.com
He claimed he was practising so I hardly believe he means it. Yet. That is if Michael's spell is legitimate.




However he just asked again.

Date: 2009-03-26 05:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
Of course he means it. He must mean or he wouldn't have gone to the trouble of learning it in different languages. Wizards don't ask for no reason. I think.


What will your answer be?

I think I just said yes.

Oh, Millicent, that's so amazingly brilliant! Congratulations!!

I'm so excited for you!

Date: 2009-03-26 05:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] millicent-b-.livejournal.com
Nevermind. I think he did not mean it after all.

He is so infuriating.

Date: 2009-03-26 05:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
What? I'm going to hurt him myself.

Date: 2009-03-26 06:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] millicent-b-.livejournal.com
I was mistaken - he's on his way here now with a ring.

With a ring.



I don't believe it.

Millicent!! HELL ON TOAST! This is so wonderful and amazing!!! I'm so absolutely incredibly happy for you!

Pardon me for a moment, but I have to say something and it might be a bit sappy.

After everything you've been through and endured, you deserve every single happiness. I couldn't be more pleased for you than I am in this moment. Kevin must see what I've seen for years despite your ability to hide it from most people, and for that, obviously, he's brilliant. (And I don't say this from any personal bias due to our relation.)

Since the two of you became friends and then moved beyond that, I've seen a change in you, but I didn't want to say anything. I won't give him full credit, but his addition to your life has been such a wonderful event to witness.

I really am so very pleased for you.

Date: 2009-03-26 08:15 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] millicent-b-.livejournal.com
I suppose you are allowed one sappy moment.

Thank you, Pansy. Not only for what you said but for everything over the years. I am beyond pleased I was able to share it with you.



I believe I have now met my lifetime quota of sappy moments.

Date: 2009-03-26 08:30 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
Sappy time is over, I promise.

Kevin had better take good care of you!

From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
Didn't have to. I did it on my own after I left seeing as how you weren't fixing to share. Never seen someone look so bloody shell-shocked in my life as I did you. Still seem to be.

Someone has to tell me right now what's going on! It's not fair being kept in the dark!

I'll be in tomorrow when Brennan is with Anthony. I apologise for my absence, I truly do. Is everything alright? Are you alright?

He's just small, it's not his fault. Does he know you call him 'Short' instead of Thomas?




Which offer is that?

What did Emmet do?

Date: 2009-03-26 04:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
I'm alright. Might've stumbled around the place in a drunken stupor with my trousers around my ankles, but I've sussed how to keep them up by now. How's the kid?

You mean his given name's not Shorts? Jesus fuck.


To buy Purgatory off her. She offered it to me last night but I turned her down. I've suddenly been overcome with a change of heart.

He's alive, reckon that's offensive enough.

Date: 2009-03-26 04:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
That was amusing, thank you for the chuckle. I don't want to see it, but it was funny! Why do you and Anthony both insist on referring to him as 'the kid'? It's infuriating. He has a perfectly lovely name.

You shouldn't swear with Jesus' name. Do you even believe in him at all? Religion wasn't created just to fill your swearing needs.



You're going to buy Purgatory? That's wonderful! It's a wonderful home, it really is.

If you say so. I trust your judgment.

Date: 2009-03-26 04:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
Then my evening's made. Brennan's a fine name and all but 'the kid''s got a certain je ne sais qua about it. Makes him more accessible like.

But his name works so sodding well. Wasn't that God's gift?


Hope to, so long as the price is right. We'll see what kind of deal Millicent's willing to work. You offer her congratulations yet by the way?

You cert you're alright?

Date: 2009-03-26 05:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
Je ne sais quoi, you mean. More accessible? How is he less accessible?

I don't think so.


Congratulations for what?


Of course I am. Why?

Date: 2009-03-26 05:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
That as well. Brennan's a bit princely, there's a touch of the haughty there. 'The kid' gives him that everyday Joe Blogg's fish and chips sort of appeal. Someone who's a touch more relatable.

Then what was it?


She's solved her mystery, with a little help from yours truly. Turns out all she needed was a solid translation charm.

Don't know, mayhaps because you're trusting my judgment without hearing what I've done.

Date: 2009-03-26 05:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
I like his name, and I think it suits him. He is princely, so there's your answer to that. Why should he need Joe Blogg's fish and chips appeal?

That's for you to discover.


And? What did he say?

Did you want to explain or have me doubt you? I could require an explanation and doubt you if you'd like me to. I don't need to do such things, but I'm willing to accommodate your needs.

Date: 2009-03-26 06:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
To gain more mates. You want the kid to have mates, yeah? I'm only looking out for his social marketability.

I'm not going to start praying anytime soon, so I reckon that'll be a mystery for a little while longer.


She's told you.

You don't need to doubt me this time around but it'd be nice to have to offer up an explanation every once in a while, given the whole checks and balances thing we're supposed to be practising.

You free Saturday afternoon?

Date: 2009-03-26 03:45 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
I highly doubt his friends will call him 'the kid' instead of Brennan, or even Bren. I don't think you'll have to worry about his social marketability considering that I didn't have any trouble, nor did his father despite his lack of speech.

I'll pray for you then.

Because I trust you once you think I'll never question you again? How odd.


I am. I do have later plans with Tracey who is coming for dinner. What do you want to do? I'll have Brennan.

Date: 2009-03-26 08:27 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
That's because jammy bastard had Terry and me around to make him seem like the nice one. Anyroad, the kid's still the kid to me. There's'n't anything wrong with it and until he complains, reckon I'll keep with it.

You're praying now? That mean you've finally come to a conclusion about a Higher Power?

That's more like it.


The kid can come, you'll just have to leave him at the bottom of the tree. Thought you might be interested in checking out your new digs away from home.

Date: 2009-03-26 08:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ms-pansy.livejournal.com
You succeeded in making him seem like the nice one.

I'm praying for clarity, actually.

You know I'm not leaving him at the bottom of the tree. Perhaps I can find a minder for a few hours.

It's ready?? I'm in dire need of it.

Date: 2009-03-26 08:45 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
And that's how he's friends.

I know Clarity; used be a great mate of mine. That is until the tosser bolted and I've'n't seen hide nor hair of him since. Bastard. What are you needing Clarity for?

Padma wouldn't mind. She'd love to get out of the casino for a while, actually.

Near abouts. I've a few finishing touches to do up and a couple of charms to recast, but come Saturday, it'll be perfect.

Ah.

Too many things to get into without confusing myself further and giving you way too much information on the state of my mind. Unless you've some interest in why I never sleep and suddenly find myself in need of writing supplies once again?

Would she? Why ever for?
If she's willing to mind him, I'm sure he'd be thrilled. But do be sure she's prepared for Diogee?

Do we have to wait until Saturday?

C'mon Pansy. You're one of my best mates. You know I'm always interested in you. What's set your head to worrying?

Too busy, too noisy, too much excitement, too clean even. Take your pick. It's just not her cup of tea, I reckon. That's why I'm buying Purgatory.
Thought the mutt was staying at Terry's?

Nah. If you don't mind incomplete, we can go as soon as you're through here.

I love Ron, but... not like I ought to. Not in the right way. Is it selfish of me to keep seeing him when I know we've no future beyond what we have now? Is it fair to him or me, for that matter?

Will I ever meet someone who compares to what I had before? I don't think it's possible when it's not completely dead to begin with. The comparison will never die, and then what?


It could be worse. She could hate the business entirely, hm?

Diogee goes where Brennan goes right now because he's happier with the dog about. He comes first, so I'll deal with the dog if I have to.

That would be nice.

Reckon you and Weasley are the only ones who can answer that. If he doesn't care about wasting his time and you've'n't a problem with it, then there's'n't anything wrong with keeping things as is. Only person you run the risk of hurting is yourselves.

I'm probably not the right person to ask but when you suss it out, let me know.



S'pose it's a good thing then we've nixed the all-nude all-girl revue otherwise it'd be a sodding hopeless case.

It's good then, you've found something to help the ickle guy.

You ready?

He's fun, and interesting, he truly is. I fear breaking up with him would cost me someone I truly admire. And do I want to break up with him right now? I really don't. But he's in love with Granger, it's not as if I didn't know that entering into this relationship. What I didn't count on was being stuck in the past forever.

I need to move on somehow. There has to be a way. I can't go through my life comparing every single person to someone who doesn't even want me anymore. That's incredibly unhealthy, not to mention somewhat self destructive.





I'm ready.
