He was in the living room, flipping through a newspaper.

She'd walk in the door. She'd had an early morning Saturday practice, and was now home for lunch. She looked a bit beat up, but smiled when she saw him. "Hey."

He put the paper down and stood up when she walked in. "Hey, beautiful. How'd practice go?"



Elle Bagman TB

She'd shrug. "Rough. Weather wasn't cooperating and...it was just a tough practice."

"Is there anything I can make you for lunch?"


{{Bond_em7|time=15:33, February 15, 2017 (UTC)|Elle=She'd shake her head. "I was just going to make a sandwich. Would you like one too?"}

"Sure," he said, still moving into the kitchen, to grab plates out.



Elle Bagman TB

She'd frown at him slightly, but pull out bread, then start getting out lunchmeats, veggies, and chips.


AdultThomas2

He lightly spread butter on his bread before adding ham, turkey and cheese to his sandwich.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:40, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd look at him curiously as she put Mayo on hers, adding ham and some lettuce and tomato. "Butter?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 15:41, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

"Never liked mayonnaise," he said with a shrug. "So, growing up... my Mum used butter."



Elle Bagman TB

Send Me an Owl! - 15:42, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
"Hmmm." She'd finish putting the sandwich together and add some chips, then get a big glass of ice water before heading to the table. "So, what have you been up to this morning?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 15:44, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He added some chips to his plate and poured a glass of water before also heading to the table. "I cleaned the bathroom, like you'd been hinting at," he said with a grin.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:45, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd chuckle at that. "Ok...did you clean the toilet? Mirrors? Sink? Shower?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 15:46, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

"Yes to all of the above," he said with a clearly satisfied grin.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:47, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd give a nod of approval and take another bite. "Anything else?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 15:49, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He shrugged. "Not really. Just kind of had a lazy morning besides that."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:50, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd give another approving nod. "Good...you've been getting more and more stressed out during the week."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 15:50, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He furrowed his brow. "You think so?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:53, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah. I...figured it was just because you haven't really...taken any vacation time or anything in...well in a while." She'd frown slightly. "Unless there's something else going on at the shop that's stressing you out?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 15:54, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He shook his head slowly. "No... I guess I haven't felt any worse than normal, but maybe I'm... projecting something I'm not fully aware of? A little stress is healthy, but I haven't felt too awful lately."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:57, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "You've just seemed tense." She'd finish her sandwich. "I thought maybe a vacation or even taking a day or two from the shop might help."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 17:15, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He nodded. "I could talk to Mark about it." He looked thoughtful for a moment. "Early spring would be easiest-- right after Christmas, but before summer rush."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:16, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Sure...or maybe over Christmas?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:15, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He shook his head. "Can't really do Christmas-- we get students stopping by to replenish supplies then. It's a busier season."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:23, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "So...how's the shop doing financially? I mean...it's just you and Mark working there right?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:26, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He nodded. "It's going well. We've just brought in a new cauldron line from France that's doing pretty well."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:27, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So...would expanding or hiring more employees be an option...or is it still too early or small for that?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:29, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He shrugged. "One long-term plan is to maybe open up a franchise, or something similar, in Hogsmeade. If that's the case, we'd probably look to hire another Herbologist or something. We've still got Henry working with us."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:32, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "...but not enough people yet for you to work less."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:32, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

"Do you think I'm not home enough?" he asked, furrowing his brow slightly.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:35, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd shake her head, drawing out her response. "Nooo..." She'd pause. "I mean...I'm not here a whole lot either with practices and games and everything. I guess I just feel like you never get a break. It would be a shame if you started hating your work just because you had to be there so much."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:41, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He chuckled. "I appreciate your concern. But I do love what I'm doing."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:41, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "...as long as you'll admit it if it's starting to burn you out."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:44, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He nodded. "Definitely."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:45, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd smile and stand, washing her plate. "If you're done I'll do yours too."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:47, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He handed his plate to her. "Thanks, babe."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:49, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod and continue doing them. "Sure."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:51, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He started putting other things away-- the bread, and chips.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:54, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd finish. "So...any plans this evening?"


AdultThomas2

 – 20:55, February 15, 2017 (UTC)~

He shook his head, moving behind her, wrapping his arms around her waist. "Nope... you?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:57, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd smile and shake her head. "No...so would you like to make plans then?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:57, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

"With you? Always."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:59, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd turn, still in his arms. "So...thoughts?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 21:00, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He considered that. "Well... we could go out and get dinner somewhere. Or we could go dancing... I know you liked that when we first started dating," he said with a grin.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 21:03, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...but how do you feel about it?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 21:04, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

"I want to do what makes you happy," he said. "And I think I'm an okay dancer."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 21:06, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd smile. "You are...but do you like dancing at all?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 21:08, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He chuckled. "I like dancing with you."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 21:10, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Ok then...that's what we'll do." She'd pause. "Feel like dressing up some or being more casual?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 21:11, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

"I can dress up," he said with a grin.

Elle Bagman - Domestic Management

She'd nod. "Then I will too."


AdultThomas2

-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:15, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

"It'll probably take you longer than me," he said with a wink, before a suggestive smile crossed his face. "But if you wanted to share the shower..."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 21:16, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
She'd smile, heading for the bathroom, a wicked grin on her face. "Sure, why not?"
AdultThomas2

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

 – 21:17, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

He grinned, heading after her.

OOC: Head to somewhere else? La Lune or Club Mute or something?





Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:11, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd be sitting on the couch clearly multitasking. She'd have a parenting magazine open to some article, a couple thick books open to various things, the paper open to listing of available houses, and a half eaten sandwich and some chips or a nearby plate.


AdultThomas2

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

 – 19:18, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

He came in from work and smiled at the image in front of him. "Hey beautiful... how are you?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:22, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd answer not looking up. "Busy...How do you feel about Hogsmeade, what do you think of Sarah Grace, and do what are your thoughts on spanking?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 19:23, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

He sat down next to Elle, and took her hands gently, so that she'd hit an internal pause button. "I can see that."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:39, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd look up at him a little confused. "...see what?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 19:42, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"That you're busy," he said. He smiled, amused. "Do you even remember what questions you asked me?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:44, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...House location, Baby Name, and discipline preference."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 19:50, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"Alright," he said with a mild expression. "Hogsmeade would work, provided there's something we like." He paused. "Sarah seems a little... plain to me. Grace is actually Melinda's middle name. And I'm a hard no on spanking."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:54, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd look mildly surprised. "Really? I guess I expected you to believe in strong disciple. I think I'd like to look in Hogsmeade since Faith pointed out we do have a lot of family close there with her and Dakota and Ayden and Jenelle. I guess I just liked the connotation since Sarah means Princess and obviously Princesses are graceful."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 19:57, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"We can definitely look at Hogsmeade," he said. "As for spanking... it does more harm than good. There's no reason to hit your kid." He shrugged. "My family traditionally names girls after... qualities. Faith, Charity... Melinda's middle name Grace." He paused. "I wouldn't mind holding that tradition... even if it's in the middle name. And then boys are named for Biblical figures... and the first boy got his father's name for his middle name."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:05, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So Something Thomas if it's a boy and some quality either first name or middle name if it's a girl...but obviously not your sister's names because that would be weird."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:08, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded. "I was looking at different names for girls... even though I know we don't know yet. I liked Hope or Patience or Serenity... I'm sure there are others."

Ooc: If they use Hope... it has to be her middle name just for my sanity xD



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:10, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "I don't like Patience but Serenity and Hope are good." She'd pause. "...and Joy is out too because of Aria. I don't think Faith will take a name like that so we're ok there not stealing their baby's name."


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:13, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"Is she keeping her baby?" He asked.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management

 – 20:19, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:22, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So what names do you like for boys or girls?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 20:26, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

He shrugged. "I dunno, exactly. Maybe... James or Peter for a boy... I haven't really thought too much about it, honestly. I suppose I should... I also thought we'd wait to find out what we're having before discussing names, too. What do you like? Or were you knd of sold on Sarah Grace?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:27, January 12, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "I just liked the meanings. I think a name should mean something important you know?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 21:37, January 13, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded. "I agree. If it's a girl... I'd even be okay with finding a name that means some... positive quality and using that to sort of... acknowledge my family tradition without following it explicitly."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 13:21, January 15, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I actually like the middle name Faith...sort of as a tribute to your sister but with her having her own...would it be weird to use her name?"


AdultThomas2

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

 – 16:26, January 15, 2018 (UTC)

"I don't think so," he said, shaking his head. "Charity has our aunt's name as her middle name."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management

She'd nod slowly. "Well then maybe we keep that in the pool."


AdultThomas2

-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 16:33, January 15, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded. "Sure. Did you want to discuss boys names at all? I mean... we don't know what we're having yet."
