  1. Cassandra hadn’t told Cate where they would be going, but she had asked her aunt to trust her and promised that she and Alex would take care of each other and that she would contact her if anything went even a little wrong. She realised that Cate had some idea the teenagers were likely to get into some mischief, but the other woman had seemed to be distracted or concerned by something else. She just wanted to know that the teens would be alright. Somehow, Cass had managed to convince her, not that they could be stopped anyway, but she didn’t like making her aunt worry. Either way, they had managed it all, saving money, organising magical IDs that would look like they were 21 for bartenders and bouncers, and got their flights and a hotel organised for their fun trip to Vegas. Honestly, so long as they had some fun then the trip was completely worth it, it didn’t matter what they did. ”I’m pretty sure they’ll work where they matter. For the things that we need to be older, they should show an earlier birth year,” Cass smirked lightly at her boyfriend, before waggling her brows lightly and then turning her gaze to the lights and city around them. They’d caught a cab from the airport, and she knew they were near their hotel, but they’d wanted to go for a small walk along the main drag before turning up there. She pulled her wheelie suitcase behind her and nudged Alex with her shoulder. ”This is going to be great fun. We just need to get our room and get all dolled up for fun on the town,” The redhead grinned at him. With all the stuff that had been going on, for both of them, it really was a much needed break away for the two of them, and she was rather happy to have him all to herself for a few days or so.
  2. The redhead beamed as she saw Caleb run off excitedly, and then watched from a small distance as he showed off for Alex, along with the young Alice that Lorelei was dressed as. She had never experienced such a big family event like this and it felt strange to her, but it was warm and people here cared about one another. She glanced around a little while the kids kept Alex busy a moment, wandering the outskirts a little, before feeling something strange stirring. She had to brush it aside, but she then overheard the overexcited voices and stepped around a corner, to find Adele, Jezebel, a red haired woman who she assumed was Bethianna by description alone, and then... what looked like she imagined an older version of Alex would appear as, but with Adele's coloured hair. "Ohmigosh, you're his father," Cassandra said without even thinking, before bringing a hand to her lips as her cheeks blushed bright red. She hadn't meant to say anything, hadn't even meant to walk in on what looked like a moment going on, and cleared her throat a little as she stepped back, "S-sorry, that was... um, I didn't mean to intrude. I'll just go." The redhead said very quickly before backing up very quickly, not really looking or paying attention to anything behind her as she did.
  3. I feel like there's something strange going on that I should know about...

      Okay... change 'something' to 'a number of things' now.

    3. Alexander Winfield

      Alexander Winfield

      Wait, what are -you- referring to?

  4. Cassandra smiled brightly when Caleb nodded and began to follow her, their pair walking in a direction that she knew Alex wouldn't be able to see them through the crowd or where they might be going. She wanted to surprise him with this as well. As they made their way toward a part of the hedge maze, she turned a couple of corners and lifted her brows before nodding to the boy's question. "Of course you can keep your guitar with you! I wouldn't even consider asking you to put it down. Besides, Alex has one too, so you'll still be matching!" The young woman grinned and then stopped when they were in a small hidden alcove, before turning to the boy and inspecting what she could do. Well, he was already practically wearing a suit without the jacket, so she started by hovering her hands over his arms, and gradually a shimmering began to run over his clothing, changing it. She wasn't using a wand, which she knew, but she'd found it to be strangely less reliable these days than when she just... willed magic. Soon enough he was dressed in a striped purple and cream shirt with a purple bow tie, brown suspenders and pants, and a brown coat. The redhead's hands then went to his platinum hair, which she didn't touch or change, however she managed to conjure long cream-coloured hare ears that were purely illusion, but looked quite real. She booped him on the nose with a wink, and it would appear like a hare's nose and mouth. The young woman stood back and admired her work, despite feeling a bit fatigued of a sudden, and then smiled. "You look awesome, Alex is going to love this, Caleb. Ready to surprise him?" Cass grinned with a chuckle, quite proud of being able to bond with the boy even just a little for this surprise. It seemed like he had a bit of a tough time with being close to others, and she actually knew very well how that felt. She wanted to see him smiling more.
  5. Cassandra had insisted on getting there as early as possible, because she wanted to see everything that went down at this shindig. It was going to be much bigger than the family dinner at Stuart's, and definitely more interesting, given the whole theme of the day. She'd woken Alex up that morning with Easter chocolate, whether he liked it or not. And then had made sure both their costumes were perfect once they'd started to get ready for the party. Her Cheshire Cat costume was rather skintight, but she had a pink and purple tutu to go with it, a tail attached, a pink and purple wig with kitty ears, and painted a purple cat nose on the tip of her nose, and purple lipstick on her lips. Alex made a very Mad looking Hatter as well, and she grinned as she looked at the pair of them in the mirror before the left, taking a few photos, and then getting Alex and herself to do a quick video recording of their costumes and saying where they were going. She'd been introduced to his fans before, and there were many unhappy girls out there, but it was too bad for them. She was here to stay. And the young woman couldn't have been more amazed at the setting that had been created at the reserve, when she and Alex had arrived, staring at how much detail and effort had been placed into it. Holy crap! After wandering around for a short time, she noticed a few familiar faces also arriving too, and offered the Headmaster and his assistant (who it was rumoured he was banging now) a wave and smile, before the woman was whisked away by a hilarious and yet accurately portrayed Gaston, played by Stuart. She also smiled over to Jezebel and waved to her, and Adele. Though then spotted Caleb and wandered over to him, no costume? Maybe something to do with Adele's returned husband, but Cassandra had an idea. "Hey Caleb! I'm so glad to see you! I have a really important role for you," The woman then looked left and right before leaning in close, as though it was super secret, "Alex is dressed as the Mad Hatter, but he doesn't have a March Hare. I think you'd be perfect, what do you say? Come with me and we can fix you up to be his partner in tea party shenanigans, yeah?" Cass offered the boy a small wink, hoping it might get a smile and perhaps allow him to enjoy himself a bit as well, rather than sitting so glum in the corner.
  6. "Adulting is overrated," Cassandra snickered with a small nod, before then smiling genuinely as she was thanked for her compliment and faith in the other girl. She was only giving her honest opinion, but it sounded like something that Frankie probably needed to hear. She was perfectly still while the girl made any adjustments that she thought was necessary, while they spoke, though nodded a little, understanding how kids could be. Especially when someone's home life was a bit different to their own, "That sucks, the teasing. But it's also kinda stupid for kids to tease someone about having a happy home life, no matter the parents. I wasn't so much teased as... avoided? Given dirty looks? The prejudice over in the UK is a little stronger regarding some things," She shrugged gently, it was a little heavy to go getting into while trying on pretty clothes, so she didn't expand on the subject. "Well, there's talking, and then there's talking, but I get what you mean. It's hard to open up to people until you have some idea about them,"Cassandra nodded gently. She smiled with a nod and then glanced down at the dress, before acknowledging that it was done, which meant she began to take it off. She was carefully peeling the sleeves from her arms when she glanced at Frankie and nodded with a small bob side to side of her head, "For dance... and even for events or something, but yeah. There's always even some performance groups who are looking for decent costume designers for productions," It was another side of clothing design, but complimented the fashion aspect in a different way and could open different doors. At the mention of the next dress, however, Cassandra's brows rose up significantly as she looked it over and then to Frankie, as though to be sure of what she had heard. "What... for me? To keep?" The redhead blinked and examined the dress, it was gorgeous, admittedly, and she had to try not to be in too much of a hurry to get the other dress off and carefully back on a hanger, before reaching for the emerald fabric. "Merlin, are you serious? This is stunning! It should be something in your fashion show, in fact I'd insist on it," She chuckled a little giddily, before she then began to slip the green dress on. Once she had it done up, she looked in the mirror, and Frankie was definitely right on the ball. Her flame-red hair fell across her pale features and the green dress, standing out clearly. And not only that, but Cassandra's uniquely coloured eyes also stood out, even more green in hue than usual, due to the fabric, in an eerie but exotically beautiful way. "Wow," Cass murmured, hardly believing it was even herself in the reflection, before then turning to Frankie, smiling brightly, "This is amazing! Thank you so much." Without even another word, she tugged the other girl in for a hug to express her gratitude for such a gift. She'd hardly had a friend who'd ever thought her worth getting anything for, let alone someone make something especially for her before!
  7. "Well, I mean you can already work on the bodily strength a bit, so long as you take it at an easy pace. We could always look into that stuff, you can still be fit without overdoing yourself," Cassandra offered a nod and encouraging smile. She could understand why he might not have wanted to risk it before, but she knew that there were ways for people who even had severe heart conditions or couldn't breathe well to be able to build their fitness up, albeit at a gradual rate. "Especially if you're just going to keep taking giant leaps," The redhead chuckled with a shake of her head. What was she going to do with him? "Hey, you got no proof of my sneaking, and whether it happened or not," Cass wiggled her brows and chuckled again before then snorting softly, "I can only imagine the dirty images you're conjuring up, perv." She smirked and offered a small wink, despite her pink cheeks. "I know we'll get through it... I am not going to be popping out an entire Quidditch team though, no thank you," The redhead huffed, shaking her head, she was sure that her uterus was already clamping up in refusal of having to carry a whole battalion of children, though still thought it was amusing that Alex seemed to like the idea of lots of kids in his future. "Mhm, we'll need a big house like that, just the same, joined to a bunch of land for all the animals," It hadn't escaped her notice that the Minister's place was attached to what looked like part of an animal park or something. "Who said you'd be doing all the work anyway, I have to do my share as well... unless you think my share consists of aforementioned Quidditch team, still a 'nuh uh' there," She snickered softly. And then she considered what he said about her own ideas for the future. "Hmm, I guess I could be a pretty cool teacher. Maybe I should learn a musical instrument or something, too," The redhead considered a moment. He did have a good point, dance had helped her a lot when she was younger and had trouble in communicating her frustrations. It had given her a much needed outlet, and there were plenty of people who needed that. She nodded a little and rested her chin on his shoulder to look at him with a fond smile, "It's something to consider, though, becoming an actual teacher. We'll see what the year has to hold yet though, I suppose," Her smile grew a little more as she nuzzled at his shoulder, listening to his continued words, a soft fluttering in her chest as she nodded. "Life's weird like that, I guess..." Cassandra mused softly, her arms holding Alex tightly as she closed her eyes, feeling warm and safe and secure... and loved. "I think you've honestly been the best thing about moving here." She murmured quietly, "I feel... different, just from meeting you. Which sounds weird saying it out loud, but eh..." She shrugged gently. "It is what it is."
  8. Cassandra tried to offer Alex an encouraging smile, but then tuned back into the class as she listened to Cate, slouching in her chair a little while she played with a strand of hair. She knew about most of this, had read through a lot of her aunt's research before. And had the woman raise her. She'd been shown very early on how to defend herself should she find herself in danger. As the topic of Patronus Charm came up, she sat up a little in her chair. "The Patronus charm is an extremely difficult charm to learn, and those who achieve corporeal Patronus forms are usually considered quite strong in magic. It's typically used for protection, against Lethifolds or Dementors. It can also be used to deliver messages between wizards as well, and should be noted that the form of the Patronus doesn't decide it's strength. Something as small as a mouse can hold off an army of Dementors if the wizard's will... or the happy memory within their spell is strong enough," The girl said easily with a small smile, "I've got pretty close to successfully casting it, and I'm pretty sure it would been some kind of cat."
  9. Hearing Flora's words, Cassandra frowned at the girl who watched out the window beside Améa, deeply unsettled by the lack of compassion that she seemed to have. There was something very wrong with that, and to be perfectly honest it creeped her out. Alex's hand on her cheek pulled her gaze from there though and she offered him a small smile, before listening in on the conversation that was continuing around them. It seemed Lorelei had gone quiet as well, the girl watching Flora and Améa, though her gaze now and then was drawn to the doors that led outside as well. The redhead wondered what was going on in Lei's mind, but decided not to ask, no doubt if it was important, then she would say something. "My voice is about the only instrument I've got," Cass added to the conversation about music with a small smirk, "I hope that's enough to get into this super awesome band of yours Caleb. Because it sounds really cool," She gave a solid nod, though then lifted her brows, "I mean, I'm also a dancer, but bands don't often need those." The redhead chuckled softly and turned offered a gentle nudge to Alex, "Not that some people don't enjoy watching anyway." A wink was given to her boyfriend, and then she grinned at Vladimir's offer. That would be pretty cool, an orchestral concert. In the kitchen, Jezebel busied herself with placing the potato bake and cheesy cauliflower bake into the oven to warm up, not quite as bad with an oven as she was once upon a time, even though she joked. She started looking through the fridges for the salads and smiled as she noticed Viktor coming to help. "Just need something to do, so that I'm not either making Mum uncomfortable, or getting the stink-eye from Caleb," The woman murmured quietly, a softly huffed chuckle falling from her lips. She didn't want to admit that it stung a little that her brother who she'd been trying to form a connection with for years had never taken an interest in music when she'd tried to share it with him, but now suddenly wanted a band. One that he no doubt did not want her to be a part of. "Hopefully, we can start taking some of these things outside soon, though I don't want to rush whatever's going on out there," She glanced over at Viktor, "What were you and Vlad exchanging looks about?" * * * "I'm surprised she didn't just intervene, like she does every other time," Stuart mumbled, regarding Lillian and her 'concern'. He didn't know what had happened, how what he knew was possible, but somehow Lillian had managed to get Lauren... and yet, Flora didn't feel like the child of Adele and Alan, either. He wasn't sure he really wanted to know the true details of whatever had gone on, and he couldn't very well tell Adele. Especially not today of all days. Maybe one day, though he personally hoped that she wouldn't have to go through the process of realising that the daughter she'd been grieving for years was the same girl that she couldn't stand to have around her family. All he could do right now was let the woman get out what she needed to. "What has already been done has been done, Grandmiere... what is important is that you have learned, and hold a greater care for all of your remaining family," The young voice caught Stuart off-guard as he glanced down beside them, where Lorelei was now standing, a hand reached up to hold onto Adele's shirt lightly. He hadn't heard the door, which meant the girl must have done her little teleportation thing, as she tended to do. There was a very clear compassionate expression on her young features though, and she wrapped her arms around Adele as far as she could. "You know that you will never make the same mistakes, and have become a better person. I am sorry that it brings you pain, but I am also happy that you are the Grandmiere that you are because of your experiences," The girl gave a gentle nod after speaking softly. The words not meant to hurt, but to try and offer what little strength she could gain from the pain of the loss she felt, "You have done better."
  10. "Yeah, I can only imagine there'd be so much you want to do that you wouldn't even know where to begin," Cassandra had never been hindered by pain, but she knew enough about holding back on some things, and the idea of being free to do them without worry or fear of consequences. "But I'll be right there, and we can just take it one step at a time, whatever you want to do," Though she honestly doubted it would be one step at a time, more like full steam ahead with a bunch of things. She could handle that though, and doubted anyone would blame him if he decided to just take a little time to try out a lot of different things. She snickered as he tried to play innocent, while admitting to his guilt about being the instigator for where they currently were, but conceded a small nod to him, "Hmm, you're probably right. I couldn't see any reason why we wouldn't be able to share a bed if you're living here. I know I'd sleep very well," She smiled and placed a kiss on the tip of his nose. "Wow, look at you, already planning out how we'll christen each room," Cassandra grinned, before laughing softly, even if her cheeks were a little pink at the idea and the fact that it sounded really fun, to be honest. He was right though, she didn't want him living alone, it just didn't seem right. And she could hardly let her Boo be all lonely. At the same time, she worried sometimes about how Cate would be when she eventually got her own place. Future problems though. The redhead smiled softly again when Alex spoke about wanting to focus on other things in his life when they were in front of him, and sighed softly at the mention of herself, "Alright... alriiight... I'll try not to get on your back about worrying over your situation. I just... I'm going to worry, until it's all done. You're just that important to me," She poked her tongue out lightly before snuggling close. "You and your 'five kids'! It's like you're planning on knocking me up as soon as possible," The young woman huffed indignantly, but then laughed and shook her head, "You know, I would make sure that every kid I had got to have a couple of pets. Honestly, I'd probably need a farm, just to keep all the pets I'd want to have happy," She laughed about it, but it was a thought that honestly stuck in her mind for a moment. Living on a country residence? She supposed she could do it. Living near the city also held it's appeal though, due to the convenience. Things to think about another day though. She did love the idea of getting a pet together with Alex though, and smiled brightly at him as she nodded before then pressing her lips to his in another kiss. That was a perfect idea. "Me? I'm... honestly not even sure anymore," It was the truth, Cassandra was at a bit of a loss as to what she wanted to do, things felt like they'd changed so much over recent months and she was finding it difficult to remember why she felt like she had to do something in Law. "I think I really want to continue with my dancing. Maybe even expand in other areas of performance, like singing or acting as well, but I'm not sure. I'd always thought that I should become an Auror, but... that life feels so far away these days." The redhead pursed her lips a little in thought as she considered, "I know I like working with younger people, so... I suppose teaching might be an option too. I'm a junior dance instructor already anyway, but maybe I could learn how to be an educational teacher too." She shrugged gently, clearly unsure of what she wanted to do, though had to chuckle as he complained about almost setting her on fire, before making a point to note that they'd just claimed one another earlier, causing her to blush. "Yeah, I guess we did. You're the only one I want to share myself with like this too, Alex," Cassandra murmured softly with pink cheeks, leaning forward to brush another gentle kiss over his lips before cuddling close with her head on his shoulder. "I love you."
  11. Cassandra had been feeling a little off, and she couldn't pinpoint why it was, or what the cause might be. She wasn't even certain what it was that felt not quite right as she wandered over toward the 'arena' that had been set up for today's lesson, which apparently was solely based around burning things. She could get behind that, she supposed. And she brushed her fingers over Alex's arm as she passed him, offering a small smile, before finding her own name and what she'd been given. Yarn, she'd seen burning before, but the lipstick was going to be an interesting one. The redhead didn't even wait for instructions before she waved her wand to cast with the words, only to find that nothing happened. That strange feeling grew a little stronger and she rubbed her head. That wasn't right, she knew this spell, and could do it, so what was going on here? There wasn't really enough to time to look into it anyway though, as she caught the sudden flare of fire coming from Alexander's direction and her eyes widened as she left her spot to go offer assistance. It looked like between he and Morgan though, they had it under control, and Cass simply tilted her head as she looked at the charred sign that her boyfriend had managed to set ablaze instead of the materials he'd been given. "Always have to be different, don't you?" Cass asked Alex quietly with a small smirk and a wink toward him. "Are you feeling alright?" She then whispered, watching him closely, remembering what he'd said about magic draining him or making him get sick rather easily. She didn't want him collapsing or something out here.
  12. Leaned against the building, Cass' eyes were closed and an arm strewn over them as she willed herself to take a few deep breaths and move past her little 'moment'. Had she been prepared to have that kind of question in a COMC class, then perhaps she could have steeled herself much better. But one did not expect to have a teacher of this class start asking questions about the Unforgivable Curses, especially one that she had witnessed being used herself. She fought back the images in her mind, and then heard Alex's voice, which caused her to glance over toward him with a small smile. "Sorry about that..." The redhead murmured, leaning into Alex as he held her, and resting her head on his shoulder. She smiled at the gift of cookies, Iris seemed like a real sweetheart, and she'd have to thank her later. She picked one out, though, to take a bite, before nodding in approval, "They're good." She said quietly. As he mentioned returning back inside, she breathed out a long sigh. she didn't want to, but she supposed she could grab the homework and just go. Allowing Alex to lead her in and back to her seat, Cass was quiet for the remainder of her time there, jotting down the homework and making a note of when it was due, before packing up her things and waiting for Alex to be ready as well, so that they could head out.
  13. "Good luck to them. My aunt's a stubborn mule, I think she'd insist on being the 'adult'," Cassandra chuckled lightly, however she listened and nodded as Frankie spoke about wanting to be sure she could do this before sharing it, "That makes sense. But honestly, I think you've got it in the bag. I'd pay money for these clothes. You've got a natural gift." The redhead wasn't simply trying to make the other girl feel better either, she really did think she was lucky to have such a keen eye for detail and the creative flair for designing something that looked and felt good to wear. Cass' brow rose a little as Frankie mentioned her hope regarding her biological parents, but didn't push to ask why she didn't want them suddenly popping up. Not everyone had lost their folks like the redhead, a number of people had simply been given up for adoption. She couldn't understand why someone would, but that was her. No doubt people had their reasons for it. "Yeah, opening up can be really scary, to be honest," Cassandra nodded gently as a gentle laugh was huffed from her, though there was no humour to the sound, "I had people who I could laugh with, or sit with, but no one who really knew me. And my aunt being famous in her field also kind of made some wary, while others who knew about my family gave me a bit of a hard time." The fact that she came from not only a family that were halfbreeds, but also had been basically hunted down and slaughtered, did not exactly help her make a lot of friends. "I'm pretty sure we can rock this whole friend thing," Cass cast a warm smile toward the other young woman, with a small nod, perhaps she could trust Frankie, and not have to worry about being treated like some pariah. "Alex is a pretty amazing thing," Cass corrected Frankie with a small grin and laugh. Another nod followed, "It's definitely more relaxing in Australia. Even if there are some things that I miss, it's nice to just be myself more. And honestly, anyone who says clothes never matter, clearly has never worn something knock-out enough." She grinned, nodding firmly and then looked down along the dress to see where the hem was being pinned. She'd figured that it was meant to be left a little long so that it would breeze against the floor while Cassandra wore heels. "Sounds perfect, I mean, I can get up on my toes if that helps a little," The redhead offered, and then chuckled softly, "Should have brought my pointe shoes." However, she knew that would never really work, because it wouldn't give Frankie an accurate estimate of where to pin. "I don't suppose you'd consider getting into costume design or something as well, would you?" The redhead suddenly asked. It wasn't necessarily fashion, but costume designing was another art of itself, which also utilised the talent that Frankie seemed to have. It was another possible avenue, and certainly something Cass would hire the other girl for.
  14. "Honestly, I don't mind what you want to do, so long as you're doing it because it's something you want," Cassandra smiled softly as she lifted a hand to brush some of Alex's hair from his face, smiling fondly at him, "No matter what you decide, you're going to be amazing at it, I know." She had full confidence in that belief, because she knew by now that when Alex put effort into something, he applied himself fully and would place all his effort into it, to gain as much as possible. Yet another admirable trait: his dedication. She chuckled as he compared his own potential talents to her own and shook her head, "I don't know. I'm pretty sure you'll have every nurse and patient following you around, wanting a piece of Doctor Winfield for themselves," She chuckled quietly, before nodding. He was right, there were always answers out there, it was simply a matter of being able to find them. If this was what he wanted to do, then Cassandra would support Alex's dreams as best she could. "Me? Excuse you, who was the one who made the request that led to us being here right now?" The redhead chuckled and tutted at the young man, "I think you were just hoping I'd insist, so that you can now share my bed whenever you want," She teased gently and laughed softly as she touched her forehead to his, a fond smile on her lips, one that even grew as he questioned what she'd said about going with him when he eventually got his own place, once he finished school or whenever. "That's not a problem, is it? I mean, think of the potential... having a whole house to ourselves to do whatever we want, wherever we want... whenever we want," Her brows wiggled suggestively and she laughed softly again. After all, it only seemed logical as well if they planned to still be together by the time those kinds of moves rolled around. "And I know. I'm not saying you should worry about it all the time, I don't want you worrying about it all the time, because I'm still fully in support and belief that you are going to make it. And from there... there's a whole life ahead, with limitless opportunities," The young woman closed her eyes as she cuddled up to Alex. She knew she shouldn't make such a big deal about what he had to do, but it was a big deal. And as much as she held belief in his strength, the logical part of her mind knew that there was still that chance, that possibility that he could be taken from her. She wanted to make sure they got as much out of their time together as they could before then. She chuckled as he insisted he was taking care of her anyway. Before nodding as he asked about all the animals, "Mhm. I've never had a pet, so I kind of want a lot of them eventually," The redhead grinned at him. She'd never got one because she couldn't stand the idea of an animal companion being caught in the crossfire of someone hunting her, or being used to torment her. It was just cruel. But perhaps Cass could have one now. "Alex the life saver, hm?" Cassandra smiled warmly before offering a nod, "It works. I like it. Looks like I'm going to have to really consider my own goals if I'm going to try to live up to that." She winked lightly at the young man and then snorted at his claim as the king of catch phrases, followed by teasing her tiger form. "Hey, you were totally shitting yourself until you realised I wasn't actually some kind of magical animal or an actual tiger. I can totally be intimidating," To be fair, Cass had been told many times she was just as intimidating in her short human form when she really got going. It was something that Alex would no doubt probably witness one day, though doubtful that it would be aimed at him. And she smiled and raised a brow at the teasing about laying a claim, "Didn't we already lay claim to one another on Valentine's Day? I'm fairly certain you started all that. I'm just being openly accepting of it."
