  1. A Cold One

    It was not odd that someone was interested in her greenhouse, it was her career after all. She let out a soft hum and nodded. ”Just let me know when you have some free time, I usually work from the greenhouse unless I have something scheduled… which is not often really its mostly lab work and lab testing at this point- so either way!” She said with a shrug. It was of little consequence to her. She was usually pretty open. Especially after her daughter had gone to school. She supposed it was not terrible but she did miss having things to do that were of a more normal schedule. She codul easily get wrapped up in something and not sleep. ”I suppose that makes sense… if you like that sort of thing… I suppose I would be happy at home alone as I would be here… but then I have always been alright in solitude.” She said with a smile.
  2. A Cold One

    ”Of course.” she said when he mentioned that he had to work time out with work. Lux understood that particular phrase rather well, she had used a few times herself not to mention she had also heard her former husband say it as well. ”I never mind showing people around the greenhouse.” She said with a smile. It drove her daughter crazy most of the time, she had so many times before had to go around and see the plants, she had to listen to her mother talk excitedly about something. Usually something she didn’t care too much about. She smiled at the thought. ”I suppose, I myself have not tried to find a woman like that… “ She said with a small smile. The truth was she had never tried to find a woman at all. Lux had not tried to find anyone honestly. She had met and fallen for her husband and that had been more of an accident than it had been anything. ”Benefits?” she questioned and then it dawned on her. ”Ohhh.” She shook her head. ”Nevermind.” She had not needed the explanation. ”would you? All night? That seem exhausting.”
  3. A Cold One

    ”I may have a few books that you would like…” She thought for a moment. ”On herbs, more in-depth than the potions books, about the various properties.” She said. ”I wrote one of them, it is not incredibly popular here but the muggle community actually likes it quite a bit.” she said with a smile. It was actually sort of cool to see how popular it was in the muggle community. ”I focused on the medicinal herbs and how to use them… especially some of the more dangerous ones like belladonna.” She had always thought it was a particularly beautiful flower… So many pretty things were dangerous. ”You should come by my greenhouse sometime I can show you some things you may not have considered to use before.” ”Pointless?” She looked at him for a moment. ”Are you worried about someone not being able to handle the fact you are about your career?” She wondered for a moment about those who loved their jobs. ”It is about finding the woman who is independent enough on their own to handle that you will not always be home at five o’clock… perhaps you just need a woman who will be just as focused on her career. She said with a smile. ”Someone who will support you… Its not a bad idea you know. And I know what you mean… sometime it is nice to wake up beside someone. I do miss that.” She nodded. ”And thank you are not so bad yourself.” she said tucking her hair behind her ear.
  4. A Cold One

    Lux nodded. ”Oh, okay gotcha.” She said as he explained his relationship with the writer. ”His books are quite good, I will agree, I tend to read as many books on potions and healing since herbology is so closely related to those fields.” She had never really thought about conferring with someone who she had read so much from. ”So you are not the romantic sort I see,” She laughed a little at this. ”I think relationships happen even now… but if you are happy then who cares about such things?” She said. It was something she had not really come to terms with until she had gotten divorced. ”I don’t think I was able to admit you don’t need the relationship to define you until I was divorced.’ She had not really done the whole eat pray love thing, and she still had bad days but it was better since she had moved. She let out a soft laugh as he winked. ”Do you think so?” She said with a smile. ”Thank you that is very kind.”
  5. A Cold One

    She would hope a potions master loved potions. Otherwise it would seem a bit of an odd job for someone to just do. ”I take it you two are friends?” she asked as he seemed rather well versed on the topic of Mr. Anderson, either that or he was a very casual fanboy of the man. The thought made lux smile internally before she turned to look at him at his thank you. ”Oh of course” She shook her head. She didn’t really see it as something she needed to be thanked for, she was paid well for her knowledge… though if she was not being paid well, she still would have done it. She liked the quiet that she had in the greenhouse. So long as no one messed with the mandrakes. That was not really a problem since they had moved. ”I had heard that statistic yes.” She shook her head. It was a rather facetious way to see things like marriage. Though, she supposed she also felt that way this time. She had not been looking to jump back into anything for a while. ”Too busy, that sounds like a familiar excuse.” She said with a laugh. She was also using that one. ”Maybe I will spend time looking for something like that…” She said with a shrug. ”Spend more time in the greenhouse… grow flowers for the sake of flowers.” That sounded rather fun.

    ”Oh is he?” she said with a smile. That wouldn’t be a terrible idea. ”I may have to do that. I think we could easily have a few notes to compare” She said with a smile. It was a good thing honestly. The more they could colloberate and come up with various things the more they would fix. Taking a sip of her drink she smiled. ”Oh I am the on call Herbology Consultant.” It was a good thing. ”I also have a research grant as part of my contract. Its nice to have the backing of a bigger hospital and agency.” It had made all the difference in her research. She smiled at the man. ”Well Marriage is not something you are missing out on.” Hers had been an absolute disaster. She let out a small laugh and she shrugged. ”Oh I know this, rationally… but it is much harder to do it in practice.” her daughter had always been the light of her life. When she thought about what love was like- it was like that. ”I still find I have no idea what to do with time, even with the aability to do whatever I want to do.” she shrugged.
  7. A Cold One

    Lux nodded. ”Oh absolutely, people react to all kinds of things honestly.” It was a little bit of mess. She shook her head. ”Oh yes, I have not met him but I have read all of his books. He is a brilliant man.” She said with a smile. ’I have seen him but I haven’t talked to him. I am not sure what I would say have admired his work for so long.” She said with a smile and a shrug. ”I have attended a few myself. “That was how I ended up with a job here.” She said wit a smile. She was rather excited about it all. That was an understatement. She smiled. ”Oh I know but it’s just us and I miss having her around. She is my life.” She nearly gushed.
  8. A Cold One

    ”Oh there is a lot of good in the old, we aren’t really trying to reinvent those things. If it works it works.” She said with a smile. ”We are really looking at those things that don’t work… things that seem to afflict the magical and the muggle alike. Cancer dementia… autoimmune things. Potions that treat that the symptoms are great but at the end of the day you still have those medical issues.” The purpose of medical sciences was to keep improving, and they had the ability to integrate the non magical with the magical… it was a good thing. It was actually pretty interesting. She enjoyed the work she had been doing honestly. It was a good way. ”I’ve come a few times, and I would have to agree… and that is without even knowing how you make your drinks.” she said with a small smile. ”It is also a great place to be talked out of pulling my daughter out of school…” She said with a bashful glance at him. She had been looking for any excuse to pick her up… it was the longest she had gone without seeing her daughter

    Lux smiled. He did seem to remember her. That was something that at least made her feel a bit less crazy. Lux always felt as though she was the weirdest one in the room. Maybe it was because most of her conversation came from her plants, or those who also felt the same about plants she did. It was sort of a calling, you either had it, or you didn’t. Her daughter had also talked to the plants but she felt this was more to humor Lux than it was actually talking to someone. ”yes, I have been working with a few healers… developing new things, well and a potions master… it’s been quite a collaborative. A think tank so to speak.’ She was smiled at him. It was kind of like that in many ways. ”It is nice to run into you outside of the hospital. I don’t really see many people outside of them these days, then again its because I spent most of my time in them…” She said as she looked at the drink set in front of her. ”Avoiding being home alone tonight… what about you?”

  12. A Cold One

    Lux gave a small laugh. She was a little amazed at how jumpy she had been since her daughter had gne to Tally. It was quiet in her home and the more she found herself alone, the more she disliked the empty feeling the house had. She couldn’t wait for the first holiday. It took a lot for her not to march into the school. Luckily her friend worked there and she was able to keep an eye on her without her daughter knowing, It was a good feeling at least. It had been hard enough moving countries, to add a new school on top of that. She shook her head. Looking at the time she decided that rather than make dinner she would head to the Roo. She figured a drink and some barfood was not the worst thing. She moved to sit beside a man who had ordered a drink and she smiled. ”Cherry Vodka and soda please… and can I see a menu?” She asked as she looked at the man beside her. ”Oh Dr. Hawthorne!” She said with a smiled. ”Lux… Hightower. I don’t know if you remember me, we met briefly at a seminar at the hospital…” She said with a smile

    Harold met Elise on one of his many fact-finding missions to the Ukraine. being a shy rather dorky looking government official no one quite understood Elise’s attraction to him. she always said it was because she could make him laugh. none of it mattered Harold was ensnared and the two wed on a warm summer day in London. a few years later Lux was born after they moved back to the states and the family was complete. deciding that one perfect little girl was enough Elise and Harold spoiled their child rotten. of course Lux was taught manners and how to be a polite and appropriate little girl but she still was given what she wanted when she wanted it, unless she demanded it. if Lux were to act rude or demand something she wasn’t given it. at least they attempted not to give it to her. as a child Lux was rather well mannered she spent most of her time outdoors playing with the other children in the neighborhood. she was a sensitive child, if someone crushed a bug or ran over an animal Lux would often cry for the animal. this caused some teasing from the neighbor boys but the angry side of her would come out and that was the last time they would tease her. it was during this time period that she started to develop a love of plants and flowers. she would plant what she could find and studied the way plants developed. and then make her mother to go out to farmer’s markets and other shops in order to learn or plant what she was interested in. being into the whole idea of fashion and design herself Elise made sure her daughter was able to grow this aspect of her life. Harold of course went with it he was wrapped around his wife’s finger. school had never been important to Lux, she did all right while there but she was hardly the top of her class. While she was at school he tended to do what she wanted like spending a lot of time outside or in the greenhouses. It was there she found she was very much in love with Herbology. Not only that but she found a purpose for these plants and it was truly amazing. After graduation she attended a magic University in the states and met Max. She and Max soon became a rather inseparable couple. They married after graduation and soon got pregnant with their daughter. When their daughter turned four her husband left her for one of his co-workers. He claimed she paid him no attention. Max was not interested in taking custody of their child and, so she and little Laurel moved to Australia where she was handed a job opportunity. Now eight her daughter has adjusted well and Lux had enjoyed her research and work she has been doing in coordination with the magical medical community.

I still push of course i want her to be independent and find what makes her happy, but too much... is too much. School is hard enough, not to mention we moved countries... a lot of change for two people who do not take to it well Lux hi im bacon (Lux)
