He'd be a few minutes early. Thomas had asked him to meet about something, so here he was. He'd order them a couple butterbeers as the waitress came by.

He walked in on time and quickly spotted Ash. He made his way over to the table. "Hey."

He'd smile giving Thomas a quick hug and patting him on the shoulder before sitting back down. "Hey. How are you?"

"Oh, not too bad, yourself?"

Send Me an Owl! - 18:57, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd chuckle. "Keeping busy between home and Hogwarts. So...I assume you asked me here to talk about something?"


AdultThomas2

-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:01, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He nodded. "Yeah... Elle and I have been... having conversations about our relationship, and where we think it's going... marriage has come up..." he paused, trying to figure out how to word it. "Timing always seems to be the big question mark. We both know we'd like to get married, but at the same time, we know that now isn't the right time. So... I guess.... how'd you know when you wanted to propose to Charity?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 19:15, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd chuckle. "Well...I know this won't help you much, but I knew I wanted to propose when I met her here in the Three Broomsticks."


AdultThomas2

 – 19:17, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"Okay, so.... you didn't though. How'd you... pick when you did?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 19:28, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd smile slightly, remembering. "Well...like I said I knew when I met her...so we got to know each other better...with some definite faux pas along with way...and when I knew I wanted to come home to her every day, I popped the question."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:31, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He frowned slightly. "How could you know that soon? Wouldn't that have been based solely on how she looks?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 19:37, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd frown slightly. "That was definitely part of it...but we sat here for a bit working on her application for St. Mungos, and just the way she talked about wanting to help people and...her charm made me fall in love with her."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:39, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"And then once you knew... you just did it? Did you talk to her at all about it?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 19:45, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
"I mean...we took our time to get to know one another better...and we'd talked about where our relationship was going, but I don't think we actually talked about getting married until I asked her."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:48, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

That surprised him. Charity was always such a planner... wanting to know everything about what was going on.... "Wow."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 19:51, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
"...but every relationship is different. I think on our first actual date, charity and I talked about how we were both looking for something serious, and not just a fling...something that would end in marriage at some point. You and Elle have had quite a different relationship." He'd pause. "How did you know when the time was right with Carmen?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:58, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He shrugged. "Just.... felt right. It was Christmas and the timing... it felt right. But... that answer seems to... not be enough for Elle."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:02, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd frown. "Well...did you propose?"

OOC:I was looking back to remember things clearly, and all around the same time Elle was created (5th year), Ash and Charity got engaged, and Rose was born. :P


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:06, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"To Carmen, obviously. I haven't proposed yet to Elle. I've been... thinking about it, sure."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:07, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd frown a little. "Then...how do you know that won't be enough for Elle?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:10, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"Because we had this discussion a few weeks ago. I promised her that when it felt like the time was right, that I would propose. But she got all caught up in this 'how can we know, what if the moment did come and we didn't acknowledge it' train of thought, and.... it was hard to pull her out of that."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:13, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod slowly, his words thoughtful. "It sounds like...there was probably something else on her mind."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:17, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He shrugged. "Maybe..."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:19, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd ask point blank. "Do you want to marry her?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:21, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He nodded. "Yeah, eventually. I'm not sure right this minute... but in the... near future?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:22, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "...and if you asked her...right now, how do you think she'd answer?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:24, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"I hope she'd say yes. But... she overthinks a lot. I could see her.... giving me an uncertain look and... then maybe saying yes?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:26, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "Alright...so let's say that's your current position...what would happen right now. What's your ideal position? As in...how would you like the situation to unfold if everything was perfect?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:27, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He chuckled. "An enthusiastic yes."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:29, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd smile and nod. "Alright...so what do you need to do to get from your current position into your ideal one? You don't have to have a whole plan...just some general steps, or a list of objectives even that would help move you from the former into the latter."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:32, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He shrugged. "No clue."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:36, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "So, that's what you've got to figure out. What's she looking for that will turn her reluctance into jubilation. Is it a special proposal? Is it the ring? Maybe she's just waiting for you to propose and trying to speed things along...or maybe she needs more time to feel comfortable. If that's the case, what will make her more comfortable with it? ...and I know this might sound obvious, but the best way to find this out is to pay attention to her. When girls talk they usually communicate a lot more than just what their words say. Listen to the subtext. What's going on in her life that might make her hesitate, then try to make it not a factor." He'd give a small grin. "I'll be honest, we use the same type of strategies in business, but I've found they apply equally well to women."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:42, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He nodded, thinking that over before he chucked. "How often do you use it on Charity or Melinda?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:46, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd chuckle. "More often then they need to know about." He'd smile. "It's a good life lesson to remember that girls are different than we are. They think differently, feel differently, and make decisions differently. As men we tend to forget that, or discount it...usually because we want to be lazy and not expend the energy to try to keep up with it. That's the mistake a lot of guys make...they don't want to put in the time or effort to really understand a woman."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:49, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He shot a look at Ash. "I put in effort with Elle."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:51, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd use a placating tone. "I'm not saying that you don't. Just letting you know the easy trap to fall into...and one that doesn't vanish when you get married either."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:54, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He nodded, thinking about retorting that he'd already been married.... but Carmen had vanished so soon after, he wasn't really sure that it counted. He took a sip of his butterbeer.



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 20:56, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd follow suit with his. "So...does any of that help?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:58, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"Kind of..." he said with a shrug. "I'll... I don't know, try to... bring it up without bringing it up I suppose. Read between the lines if I can."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:02, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "Depending on how that goes you could just up and ask her. Elle's always been a...pretty up front person. It might ruin it if you'd planned to surprise her...but it may be what you need to do."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:03, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He nodded. "Yeah... she kind of knows to expect one soon. But... not when specifically."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:15, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "Well...congratulations in advance then."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:17, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He nodded. "Thanks. How's Charity and the kids?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:21, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "Good. The kids are both getting big...tends to happen quickly with kids apparently. Charity's thinking about staying home with them and being done at St. Mungos...but it's a big decision."
AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:23, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"Really? I... didn't know she wanted to do that. When will she decide?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:26, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd shake his head. "Not sure...in her own time. I think it's at least partially my fault. Even before we were married I told her I'd like Elmira to find someone else to teach so I could be at home...and I say the same thing every summer...and every fall I'm back. I think...maybe she feels like she has to do it because apparently I can't."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:28, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"If you didn't teach... don't you think she'd find someone? Like if you... just didn't show?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:30, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd frown slightly. "I'd...like to think so but...that hasn't been the case the last couple years when I asked her to find someone else."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:32, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"And what if something happened to you? You didn't just make a request... that something prevented you from returning. Don't you think she'd manage?"



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:36, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd hope the reminder wouldn't hurt too much. His tone would be soft, trying to make a point, not aimed at Thomas. "...because that's what happened with History when Carmen disappeared?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:38, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He shrugged, not really bothered by it. "In that case yeah, I stepped in. But I'm sure Elmira would've found someone else if I hadn't."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:40, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd fall silent. "Well...hopefully we'll get it worked out at some point. So...anything else new with you? How's the shop?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:42, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He shrugged. "Shop's fine. Getting ready for our summer boom."



Ash Coryn

Send Me an Owl! - 21:43, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "How's Mark?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:49, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"I think he's okay... but I can't say that with any degree of certainty anymore. He doesn't say much."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:50, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd frown slightly. "That's...troubling."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:52, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

"I have my guesses... but Mark isn't very forthcoming. And I'm not going to force him to talk to me."



Ash Coryn
Professor Prince - Herbology - Head of Hufflepuff - Greenhouses and Gardens
Send Me an Owl! - 21:53, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd nod. "Well...as always if there's anything Charity and I can do to help...for you and Elle too."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:55, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

He nodded. "Yeah."



Ash Coryn

Send Me an Owl! - 21:56, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
He'd give Thomas a final smile, then stand to head out.
