  1. Invite The Ball & Chain

    "Right... I mean, I don't know everything, but I have met your mum and know there's a lot of things about your family that have to be kept secret. I mean, Alex told me that early on anyway, which is why I've never asked. Anything I do know, he or someone else has told me freely," Cass said quietly, offering a small nod, and then a small huffed chuckle, "Your mum was pretty open about talking in front of me, but then I'm pretty sure I could have been a speck of dust as far as she's concerned." Not that she particularly cared too much. The redhead felt she should be more worried if the older woman did take an interest in her all of a sudden. She was quite happy to be insignificant. "Uh, do you have chocolate?" She then asked, offering a small smile. So sue her, she preferred chocolate to tea or coffee. "Yeah... I mean, that's how I know he's keeping something from me, it's kind of plain as day to see," A small huffed chuckle escaped Cass as a fond smile tugged at her lips. "Though, after meeting your dad, I can see where he gets his personality from." Now that had been a surprise to see, but the man had been a warm, happy, and welcoming man. And she could envision Alex being very much like him as he got older, he was already pretty much a younger version. She listened as the other woman spoke, however, politely silent while she heard out Adele's concerns and what bothered her. "I... I know, a lot of people were surprised - and hurt - that it just... happened. And I am sorry that it did cause hurt," Cassandra's voice was soft, the apology genuine as she turned her cup in circles on the tabletop. "We never intended to actually get married there. He had intended to propose... which had surprised me, so much so that I actually fell off my chair in the middle of a restaurant." A small embarrassed smile tugged at her lips, before she then shook her head lightly, "The rest just... is fairly blurred. We got really drunk, and must have just thought that we may as well. Woke up and we were married. But we'd never intended to leave anyone out, and are planning on having a proper ceremony with everyone after... if... you know." The redhead's brow furrowed as she bit her lip. She then cleared her throat before she spoke again. "But it's... the whole thing with us making the most of what we have. I kind of understand what it's like to not know what could happen tomorrow, or the day after. That's kind of how Alex and I first clicked, is having a shared understanding of knowing any day could be our last," The young woman looked up and across at Adele, and her green eyes showed how haunted she was, that there was a lot more to her own life than what she ever conveyed to others. "My family are all gone, except for me and Cate. Hunted and killed, because of what we are. Or more, just because we're not fully human. My first memory is watching my parents being killed," She admitted quietly, before swallowing, "I lived most my life knowing that I couldn't trust anyone, that my days could be numbered and..." She bit down on her lip again as she looked away, not wanting to get worked up herself. "I've never fit in anywhere. But, I fit with Alex. And as much as I want to protect him and do what I can to make sure he gets as much as he can out of life, he wants to do the same for me. No one except Cate has ever really cared enough to want to do that for me," Cass shook her head a little, "And you have no idea how worried I was when we were away. Scared that something might happen to him without his family around. He's the one who kept telling me to relax, that it was fine. It was a little infuriating when he did, but... For just a few days it was like our problems, worries, fears were all another world away."

    "Hey, you drink about as much as I do. So if I'm going down, then I'm pretty sure you're gonna be on the sinking boat with me," Cass snorted quietly, before laughing a little and rubbing the back of her head that had hit the floor when she'd toppled back, still blushing furiously from the entire ordeal. She shook her head when he suggested that she wasn't fine, and offered a warm smile, "A little embarrassed that I fell arse over tit in the middle of a fancy restaurant, but I'll live. Not to worry." She grinned a little, and then offered a small shy shrug to go along with her positive response to the original question he'd asked her before she'd fallen in reaction. Apparently even sitting down wasn't safe enough for some moments. She did listen, however, as he explained how he'd come to the decision to ask for real, and shrugged again. "You're family's not that bad... and to be honest, it's nice to know that you have that kind of support. I'm a little jealous, you know? I mean, don't get me wrong, Cate is amazing and I wouldn't swap her for the world. But, I still always wondered what it'd be like to have a big family, a lot of people to be able to rely on for support and be able to support as well," The redhead mused softly, reassuring him that his family weren't exactly frightening her off or anything. Honestly, she was happy that at least some members had taken a liking to her and were happy to have her around. "As long as I wanted you around?" Cassandra snorted softly and rolled her eyes, "Haven't I been saying from the start that I'm going to make sure you survive so that you can live a long, happy, crazy, life?" She grinned at him, before chuckling and then tugging at his hand so that he would lean down. She then reached for his cheek with her other hand so that she could draw him into a soft kiss, before then pressing her forehead to his, "You goof. I want you around for however long the world lets you be."

    "Please, your ego is too big to actually be hurt," Cass snickered at him before then rolling her eyes at his confidence, another soft chuckle falling from her lips. She offered a small nod as he asked about the drink, however. "I think I can handle it," She murmured softly, though in all honesty wasn't completely certain. She didn't drink very often after all, so she was likely not going to need much to be well on her way to plastered. But she supposed she would see how the night panned out. At least once she was back in her chair. The proposal had been unexpected, at least while sober. And it sent all kinds of emotions through her, from fear to joy. But the most immediate feeling right now was embarrassment as she made the small scene. "I'm-I'm fine... hah!" The redhead allowed Alex to help her up, and was thankful for it, even as she ducked her head to try and hide her embarrassment from the spectators as she sat back down on her chair. She held onto Alex's hand still, however, preventing him from being able to get back to his own for the time being while she tried to wrap her head around it all just for a moment. "I wasn't trying to dodge anything..." She mumbled, before realising that he was probably just joking with her, and cleared her throat softly. "And you can't really pretend that never happened, as embarrassing as my reaction," Cass huffed a small chuckle. "But... you know... even though I thought we'd just been joking and everything... yeah. Yes. I mean, of course, why wouldn't I want to keep you?"

    "Pfft, getting out of class is easy if I need to, which... I mean, I only have this year left anyway. Unlike some!" The redhead poked her tongue out cheekily at her boyfriend, before snorting at the continued bad jokes and puns, before the rolling her eyes, "Mhm... we'll see who gets bent over, shall we?" She laughed, a mirthful grin on her lips, though her gaze narrowed at his seeming suspicious manner regarding some apparent secret that he appeared to be keeping from her. She would get it out of him eventually though, she was quite confident in her ability to make him talk. His comment over the drink, however, caused her to chuckle again as she gave a gentle shrug, "I always wanted to try it. So why not, hm?" It was a good enough excuse for her. The drink orders having been given to the waiter, the young woman then leaned her chin on her hand as she propped her elbow on the table and watched as he shuffled and began his reading, snickering at his fortune teller's act, before watching as the cards were flipped. A smirk rose on her lips, and she was almost certain he had to have been fudging the card reading, but she didn't mind. Her brows rose at the fourth card and she looked at him, waiting to see what was up his sleeve. And then out came the small box, which caused Cassandra's head to tilt a little in curiosity. A gift? She was tempted to just grab it and see what it was, but Alex was speaking still, and as she looked at him, she knew he was being meaningful, causing her expression to soften into fondness, before chuckling as he spoke about her own craziness. She remained silent... though that silence was soon unable to be helped anyway, when he revealed what was in the box. Her eyes widened, though even still the young woman figured it had to be a promise ring or something sweet like that, right? At least, until he confirmed what it actually was by popping the question, and the young woman pushed back from the table so quickly that the chair legs got stuck on the floor and... back she went. "Argh!" A squeal escaped her lips as Cassandra fell flat onto her back, legs kicking the air, before she rolled to her side and onto her hands and knees, her cheeks as bright red as her hair while she ducked her head, trying to both hide her embarrassment, and work out exactly what had happened there. Already a couple of people were asking if she was alright or needed a hand up. She was, however, completely speechless and unsure what the hell was going on. They'd joked, but... she hadn't actually expected a proposal!

    "Pfft, there'll never be a need to write me anything to get out of class!" Cass exclaimed, poking her tongue out at him, before then smirking as he spoke about the afterparty, and then guffawing at the terrible jokes, "Enough! We'll get thrown out of the country at this rate." She snickered. She laughed softly at his reaction to the drink prices, before her brows rose and she offered a shrug, "Well, we wanted the full Vegas experience, right?" She mused quietly with a small grin on her lips. "Oh, will I?" A brow rose at Alex's statement about getting daring, but Cassandra smirked and perused the drinks, before then deciding on something that she'd always wanted to try, "How about Long Island Iced Tea?" She asked him, looking across with mischief in her green gaze. She'd heard that there was a lot of alcohol in the drinks, which wasn't exactly the reason she wanted to try them. They just sounded really good, from what she'd heard. At the sight of the Tarot cards, however, her brows rose again and she sat a little straighter in her chair as she gave a few nods. "Alright, I'm game!" The redhead grinned as she watched him shuffle, "Do tell just where we are headed, my all-seeing boyfriend."
  6. Invite The Ball & Chain

    "I know you didn't, I just mean... you know, visiting unannounced... figure I should have..." Cassandra trailed off, her usual confidence having waned a great deal recently. The comment of how married life apparently seemed to have treated her cause the young redhead to appear hurt for a brief moment, before rubbing her arm as she followed the other woman into the kitchen and dining, and glanced at the chair that moved out. "Right..." The redhead moved, taking a seat and leaning forward on the table with her forearms as she stared at it a moment, before then looking at Adele. "I..." Where did she even begin? "I know you don't really like me, I'm not sure why outside of me looking like... you know," She had seen Bethianna, and though she didn't resemble her exactly, there was an uncanny similarity that even creeped Cass out. "I just... needed... need..." She swallowed and tried to remain calm, shaking her head a little, "Sorry, I'm just. I don't have anyone else. Cate's not here, and she's keeping something from me... and Alex is keeping something from me too." She bit her lip as she looked to Adele. "You're like the closest thing I have to any other family anywhere. I don't know what's happening to me and... do you ever just feel like you're the only person who doesn't even know what's going on with your own life, while other people do, and won't tell you?"
  7. Invite The Ball & Chain

    Cassandra had not been feeling good for some time, and with Caitlin out of the country on some kind of business, she'd begun to feel even worse. It niggled at her, the thought that maybe her aunt knew something that she wasn't telling her. Not that she thought this trip had anything to do with it. Caitlin had made plenty of trips over the years, to various places. Sometimes people needed the help that only such a woman as she could give. It meant she didn't bother visiting the house during the week. It was easier for Alex to stay on the school grounds rather than going back and forth, so Cassandra did as well, but she'd found herself unable to sleep much, waking up with the occasional burning rash along her arm or leg, and simply... feeling gross. It didn't help that she was certain that Alex was keeping something from her either, which - in her fragile state - was only making her feel more upset. She managed to hide it for the most part, but today was different. Today... Cassandra just needed someone who she could talk to and cry on and... she had no idea why that had led her to Adele's house. The young woman had stopped out the front of it for a short time, looking at the place, unsure of whether she should be here or not. She wasn't certain where she stood with Adele still, and the surprise marriage certainly hadn't seemed to have helped. That thought had her playing with the rings on her finger as she stepped up to the door and knocked. She then waited. And then heard a call toward the door, which had her blinking, before she gingerly opened it and stepped inside. "Uh, hello?" The young woman called in. She had done well to mostly look her usual bright self, but the strain was showing, especially today. Her hair looked limp and slightly dulled, and her eyes didn't appear as bright as they usually were. She stepped through the house to where she thought the voice had come from, "It's just Cass..." She said, before grimacing, No doubt Adele knew that part. She then paused, should she have brought something? Oh shit! "Uh! I forgot to bring something!" Again, she cringed. That didn't sound weird at all. Not like this was a tea party.

    "Hey, I'm not complaining. Giving you credit, you're pretty damn good at potions, it's handy to know, especially looking at the field you want to get into," Cassandra chuckled, and then wiggled her brows at him, "Hey, everyone loves a good afterparty." She snorted, poking her tongue out lightly at Alex before then snorting aloud at his terrible joking to do with Vegas and slot machines and whatnot. That was even worse than her own joke! "She sure doesn't mind at all," She snickered, giving him a nudge in the ribs, while they made their way to the restaurant, the redhead enjoying casting her gaze about at it all, even if she felt a bit out of place in such a ritzy city. She was still happy to be here with Alex, and she knew they looked good. At the table, Alex held her chair out for her, and Cassandra chuckled as she sat down easily, allowing him to push it in for her as well, before she then reached for the wine list to take a look, and summarily widen her eyes at the prices. Thank Merlin they'd saved up for the trip, and that she had a whole bunch put away from her family and such because wow. She cleared her throat a little though and smiled at the Alex "Anything in particular that you wanted to start with? I was thinking maybe go with something daring," Cass chuckled quietly, glanced at the drink menu again, specifically the cocktails and spirits. She'd never really been a drinker, but they were supposed to be here to have fun and let loose, right? Why not go the whole hog?
  9. Invite The Things We Say & Do [13th May]

    Cate had been gone for a week, and while it might have helped her sleep easier if she went to the house in Narrie, Cass didn't like being there on her own. Nor did she like making Alex go back and forth all during the week. And so they'd stayed there on the weekend, and come back to the school to sleep in their own dorms on Sunday night. And, like clockwork these days, Cassandra had woken up feeling awful. She didn't know what it was about staying here overnight that was affecting her sleep, but she knew she wasn't looking forward to the rest of today's classes. Alex was in something right now, that she didn't take this year too, so that left her to her own devices. And her thoughts. Her physical health wasn't the only think bothering Cass either. She knew there was something that the people closest to her weren't telling her, but they dodged around any potential inquiry she might make and it was leaving her just a bit frustrated, as well as concerned. So it was that she would spend those moments she had alone thinking and wondering and feeling as though she might burst. It didn't help that there were still the odd few snide people around the school, who were happy to poke fun at her and Alex's decision. In fact, as the redhead sat beneath a tree with her back against the trunk - for some reason she didn't feel like being near the metal benches lately either, maybe some weird phase - she could overhear a gossiping pair who had cast looks her way before speaking quietly, but not at all quietly enough for her to not overhear. "I bet she's pregnant." "Oh my Merlin, you're probably right. Think she did it on purpose?" "Maybe. I mean Alex could do so much better, but now he's stuck with her." Cass didn't want to care, in fact the first few weeks back at school she hadn't. But already feeling as awful as she did, she didn't even have the energy to call them out on being a pair of jealous bitches, and so instead she simply closed her eyes and brought her knees up to her chin as one hand searched her pocket for her phone and headset.
  10. Invite Not Everything Stays There [April 7th-9th 2018]

    "Terrible," The redhead muttered in response to Alex's innuendos, but was still grinning all the same as she chuckled softly, and then lifted a brow, "Oho? Got a brew that can skip the headache as well as the nausea there, potions master?" She asked. Personally, the young woman could handle vomiting, that was usually the fastest way to purge all the horrible toxins from the body, but the headaches would kill her mood, and she didn't want to be a mood-killer. "You certainly are something," The young woman poked Alex lightly in the ribs, before laughing quietly again, "Well I don't want you completely legless, that would really take away any chances of an afterparty." Cassandra's eyebrows waggled as she gave him a small grin, "Just see how we go, I guess, and make sure that I don't stun you too much with said beauty." Her fingers combed through his hair lightly once he'd brushed it, and she chuckled as they left the room. "Ooh, I see, so it's all about the amazing bod. Totally not interested in the personality or attitude as well, I see now!" Cassandra grinned as she teased him, giving him a gentle nudge while they wanted for the lift, before stepping in. She leaned into his side easily and snickered, "Even going so far as to call me the name of a city so that you can later claim to really be in Vegas. Just awful," She murmured beside his ear softly while they rode the lift down, wrapping her arm around his with a cheeky grin as others joined them in there so that he couldn't retort as easily. Once they reached the floor of the restaurant and main casino area, the redhead also gazed around, taking in things that she hadn't pain much attention to when they'd arrived, as tired as she was. She smirked as he pointed out the name of the casino, and said emerald gaze shifted to him. "Really? I'd love to meet her some time, she sounds dazzling," Cassandra chuckled, giving his arm a small squeeze before beginning to step in the direction of the restaurant alongside her boyfriend, almost feeling a little strange that they seemed to fit in with the scene so well. She was so used to the outback and everything being so simple and easy going, that being in such a place was almost daunting.
  11. Event And A Very Merry Unwedding To You! [April 1st, 2018]

    Cassandra was lost, to say the least, but she wanted to be there to help however she could and it seemed that making sure Alex was alright, and that Caleb wasn't too freaked out, since the poor kid looked pretty scared by everything (and who could blame him?), and so she placed a hand on the boy's shoulder, giving it a light squeeze as Alex hugged him to try and make him feel better. If allowed, she would give Caleb a brief hug too, before the two were dragged off by Alex, to go on the 'keep the party moving along' wagon. She wasn't sure if she'd even be able to help this recover, but she could try, and smiled with a nod. "Uh oh, dancing? Can you even dance?" The young woman asked Alex, before then looking down to Caleb, hoping that he was going to be alright. She wasn't even going to comment on the de-aging of Améa, because that was freaky as hell. Thank goodness the family had been doing all that stuff in a more remote area of the party, or other folks might actually start asking questions! That's when an elderly lady that Cass had only seen once before stopped in front of the three, holding a platter of delicious smelling goodies. "Have something to eat," It was an order from Mary Blair, who was well aware that things had gone awry and was already trying to keep spirits up and people feeling more relaxed without even being asked, "There's lots of things for everyone's tastes." She added with a warm smile, and then knelt down to beam at Caleb, "Ah! And something special for a March Hare." She winked and nodded to some cupcakes that had carrot-shaped candies on top of them.
  12. Invite Not Everything Stays There [April 7th-9th 2018]

    "You can eat as much as you want later," Cass snickered, offering Alex another small kiss, before she continued to drink her coffee and nodded a little to him, "Well, at least it's not bad weird then. I guess we just have to take advantage of you being in rather top shape while we can, hm?" The redhead grinned lightly as she wiggled her brows, before softly chuckling and then wrinkling he nose a little, "I'm not usually a drinker, but we're in Vegas. We have to have at least one night of going all out. And then we can complain about our hangovers and declare that we'll never drink again for the rest of the trip." She smiled brightly, as though that sounded like the perfect idea. It was probably a terrible one, if they planned on skydiving tomorrow, but who ever said they had to be smart about it all? She gave him a small nudge and continued on getting dressed while snickering at his complaints about oglers. "It's alright, I have full confidence that you can protect me from such people," The young woman stated easily with a soft laugh. She didn't think she really caught that much attention, but maybe she just wasn't really paying any attention to her surroundings enough. It wasn't like she was interested in what people thought of how she looked. Personally, all she really wanted was maybe a friend or two of her own age that she could actually get along with. "Wow, you saying you can forget how to unzip a dress? That's some serious levels of drunk, you're talking," Cass laughed with a shake of her head, before grinning at the small kiss to her neck, and then she finished getting ready, touching up her face a little in the mirror, not that she ever wore much make-up. "Too true, memories are always important," The redhead murmured a little distractedly until she was done, before turning to face Alex, "Do I look ready for Vegas?" She asked him, before clasping his hand and letting him lead the way out. "Well, it is my greatest asset, you have to admit," She said, before laughing and joking their way down to the restaurant level in order to get something to eat and begin their night out.
  13. Invite Not Everything Stays There [April 7th-9th 2018]

    "I can manage anything, babe. You should know that," Cass winked with a small grin, though a brow rose as he spoke about not knowing what was going on with his body. "But... you're alright, yeah? It's nothing bad?" She asked, a little confused, but able to see that he was as well. She snickered as he mentioned Adele's stock, and didn't doubt that it must be something. She'd heard some of the stories about the woman, but didn't judge. It sounded like she'd probably needed the drinks some days."Alright, so long as it's not going to affect you negatively, then we go all out tonight! Lots of wine with our dinner, and then dancing and whatever else comes to mind." She grinned impishly. She could understand Alex's difficulty with understanding everything that was going on, "Yeah, I feel a bit lost sometimes. And I've had a hell of a life growing up already." She chuckled, but watching him a moment, wondering what he wasn't saying. "I know you love my PJs, that's why I wear them around the house most of the time when we're home. I mean, I can wear them around the school too, but I don't think they're the right colours," Cass snickered quietly, wagging a finger at the young man as he openly spoke about ogling her. It had never really changed, and she didn't actually mind. It was always good to know that she had what he wanted, and it wasn't as though she didn't appreciate the view when he was getting changed either. She knew he was getting some exercise in recently, and it was certainly showing in some of the muscle development going on. "They can keep dreaming, ain't no one like the pair of us," The redhead smiled and pulled her dress on before turning her back to him, "Zip me?" She asked coyly. "Trust you to be prepared for writing random things down," Cassandra chuckled quietly and offered a nod, "I'll leave it to you to record our shenanigans and sights then, shall I?" She asked with a raised brow, "I can... be charming bait?"
  14. Invite A Promise is a Promise

    Cassandra had been a little busy today organising a dance routine, however her practise was cut off when someone else needed the studio and so she'd got changed and packed her things into a backpack and travelled back to Narrie. She remembered that Alex had said something about taking Amy into town today as well, and wondered if they were already out or not when she spotted a pair of familiar figures heading into Mrs Kempsey's. Perfect! She was right on time! Now she could surprise her boyfriend, hang out with him and the adorable little Bilby girl, and get ice cream as well! It was a three-fer. The redhead jogged across the road and then carefully snuck up behind Alex, before suddenly pouncing onto his back lightly with a firm hug and pressing a kiss to his cheek. On her own ring finger was a daintier version of the band that adorned his, along with another ring that was clearly an engagement one. "Surprise! I was wondering if I would catch you guys while you were still out. I finished at the studio early," The redhead explained as she dropped back down onto the ground and then stepped over to grab the little girl up to give a squishy hug and spin, before setting her back down again. "And hitting Mrs Kempsey's already, speaking to my heart, loves." Cassandra grinned and adjusted the pack on her shoulder with a light sigh, "So what're we getting then?"
  15. Invite Not Everything Stays There [April 7th-9th 2018]

    "Right? Get ourselves a bit of a caffeine hit before we start drinking wine," Cass grinned lightly, an impish expression, before leaning against him a little after the kiss, while she sipped at her own drink. "Are you going to be alright with drinking, by the way?" They'd had some light drinks before, but had never really got drunk, and she really hoped that it wasn't something that would cause him suffering afterward... or even during. While he may have worried about spoiling any fun, to Cass the only thing that would spoil anything would be if they did something that adversely affected him. She was honestly happy to take things easy and not do much at all, so long as they just got to spend time together. She grinned, however, as he mentioned looking forward to simple things, and had to nod in agreement. "Not weird at all, to be honest. I'm happy just for the chance for us to spend some time together without the craziness that's seemed to surround us lately," Not that the craziness was really 'theirs', since a lot of it belonged to other people that they were connected to. But they still seemed to get caught up in it. Honestly, the redhead had never imagined things would become quite so strange after moving. She'd thought her life before had already been hard enough, with having to look over her shoulder all the time. Something that she'd actually stopped doing. It was strange, but she almost felt like she was going to be just fine. Safe. "Anyway, it'll be nice to have a fancy date. I mean, I love our home dates, they're seriously the best," Because, who didn't love being able to chill out and watch a movie in your pyjamas and taking leisurely baths and pretty much just lounging around doing whatever you wanted without having to worry about other people around you? "It's something different, even as 'normal' as it seems. And, let's face it, we'll be the best looking couple around, right?" The redhead nudged Alex lightly, before she too began to get changed easily. "Oh man, I have to remember to stuff a note pad in my purse so that we can write down the names of every celebrity lookalike that we see," Cassandra giggled quietly, "We might even see a couple tonight without even trying!"
