Default Tea Time



David had everything set up and ready to go for his planned little tea party. Was his place as sparse as ever? Certainly, but it was also clean thanks, house-elf service and spacious, and he was sure his mum would find it satisfactory. Even if she would turn her nose up at the fact that he had a Muggle television, she would surely approve of the greenhouse in the spare bedroom and the tasteful furniture some interior designer had bought for him.

And Jessica. Approving of Jessica was the most important part of today's tea.

He had set out the tea set Mum had given him in the kitchen area, even though he hated the blasted pot and how floral it was. This tea set, he was convinced, was one of the reasons people incorrectly assumed that he dated other men. He tried not to scowl as he also set out sugar pots and spoons and the like. He was dressed nicely, if not a little formally, for the occasion, in a suit which had a faint herringbone pattern to it? He thought it was called that? Jessica had helped him pick it out, actually.

Things were ready now and he was trying to look forward to this tea time he'd set up, so he disappeared to go wash his hands and face once more before his guests arrived.

Default the whole outfit is SO Jessica; just imagine her face on that model lol
A Poop * k8 *

Jessica made sure to get there early. She wanted to be there before Anastasia Bunbury Truebridge arrived. Her nerves of steel were melting in a forge, it seemed, or felt like, because Merlin. She had on a a very floral dress with some off-white heels to match. Her hair was up in a stylish bun with very large earrings. She did have an olive green cardigan draped over her arm, too, in case she got cold in David's place.

She knocked on the door, waiting patiently for David for only a second before letting herself in. A second too long, David! Your girlfriend is VERY nervous and needs some water before this all begins! He wasn't in his living room, but she quickly made her way to his kitchen, eyeing the tea set in a surprised manner. She didn't Davie to ever own something so...... that. She grabbed a glass and turned on the sink, filling it up to the brim with water before downing it in a very unladylike way.

No matter. Mama T? Mama B? wasn't here yet, so she had a few minutes to slouch and be gross. Get alllllll the gross out. She left her nose ring decidedly in because she was absolutely not going to remember to take it out every time she saw his mother, and so the woman should get used to it from the start. She had at least picked a very small stud to look more classy. How traditional or old fashioned was she? If Jessica could go off of David's mannerisms, very.

David finished toweling off his face and then decided to put on his glasses because he was sure he would need them as a fidget device today. He also knew that they reminded his mum of when he was younger and more vulnerable, and she did like babying her only child.

He was just coming down the hallway when he saw Jessica chugging some water and of course his face lit up to see her. "Hello, girlfriend," he chirped, moving over to where she was standing so he could wrap his arms around her from behind and give her a kiss on the cheek. He wasn't against displays of affection in his flat, see, just in public. And also, he figured it might be better to get this out before the mother arrived.

Still half-hugging her, he gave her a sort of sniff of approval. "You smell and look nice." She did. She looked bright and these sort of florals were frankly much more enjoyable than the sort that were on that teapot, weren't they?

Ah, there he was. The man of the hour. The reason for the tea, the reason she had to meet a woman who would surely terrify her. Or not. DON'T THINK LIKE THAT, JESSICA. She leaned on him as he hugged her, managing to finish her entire glass.

Ahhh.

This was nice, and she was sure they'd get plenty of time to snuggle after his mother left, but she was sure there would be ZERO touching while she was here. "Glad I smell AND look nice," she teased, kissing his cheek back and patting the bottom of his chin affectionately. "I mean...I know we picked out a bunch of dresses together, but I found this one three days ago. It was CALLING to me. The other options all felt....grandma to me. I'm not a grandma. Yet." And she wouldn't be for a very long time if at all. "How are you feeling?" She twisted around to look at him properly and eyed his suit. "Oooooh, dazzling, I see," she smirked as she poked the ridge of his glasses. "Nice. It looks so good on." She pressed her hands against his chest and patted the collar of his jacket.

This wasn't one of the dresses they had selected together? David actually had no opinion on that, because he would have never known had she not informed him of this. "It's very... youthful," he agreed. He would have said 'not grandmotherly' but as he did not grow up with a grandmother on either side of his family, he couldn't rightfully make that judgment. Either way, it fit her well and showed off her nice legs, so how could he find fault in it?

Him? "Oh, I'm fine." His awkward chuckle that followed that statement said otherwise, even as Jessica turned around and fussed with his suit in a way that gave him certain butterflies. He was having a small amount of trouble focusing on what she was saying with all the touching, though he knew enough to say, "Thanks... I mean, it should. You do have good taste." She'd picked him, remember?

And then there was a knock on the door, and David cleared his throat. "Guess that's her!" He reluctantly stepped away from Jessica and went to answer the door.

Default why is /my/ stomach churning?????
A Poop * k8 *

Was youthful a bad? Suddenly Jessica wondered. Youthful was not the word she had been going for. Yikes. The feeling in her stomach suddenly took a drop, and it wasn't helped when David went of...saying he felt ok. But she could tell he was nervous. She wanted to take his hand and reassure him, but there was a definitive knock.

CUE INTERNAL SCREAMING. HERE WE ARE. MAMA IS HERE.

Jessica tried not to look anything other than perfectly at ease as she leaned on his counter, but then decided that looked TOO confident, so she followed behind David a little but stopped a few feet back to give him and his mother space to greet each other.

Right.

She waited with a small grin on her face, hands folded in front of her. Charming, nice, ministry approved girlfriend. Charming. Nice. Ministry approved. Girlfriend. But bold. STAND YOUR GROUND WOMAN.

Could she vomit yet? No. She was fine. No vomit. Wait maybe vomit. No. NO. She was fine. HI. Hello. Hi my name is Jessica Tomaz blah blah blah blah *INSERT TAGALONG PHRASES HERE*

Her brain cleared itself, and she took a breath.

Professor Pink | Mrs. Bruce Wayne | I'm on a Goat | Glitterpuff | Evil Twin | #DancingQueen | BHB

As the door swung open, Anastasia's first impression of David's place was how spacious it was! Her baby had done so well for himself! Of course he had, though, hadn't she raised him just perfectly?

She marched in on her nude stilettos, already shrilly trilling, "Davieeeeeeee," and proceeding to pat him rather hard on the face and the arm. Which, speaking of, she grabbed, pinching it to make sure he was eating enough, and also subtly checking the fabric quality and material of the suit.

Who bought this suit? She hadn't bought this suit. Herringbone, though, and in a winter fabric... she did approve of it. Naturally, she was going to give her son the credit for dressing himself. Finally, some of the lessons she'd sought to impart on him through all those forced shopping trips were sinking in! And he had his glasses on, ugh! What a smart boy. "You look nice, darling."

Another sharp pat of the face for Davie, and Annie turned her icy blue eyes to focus on the girl. Or girlfriend, was it? "Hello, Jessica," she greeted her coolly, pausing for a moment to rake her eyes up and down the girl's outfit, then up and down her again, mostly just focusing on the short dress though. She said nothing, her lips pursed into a supercilious pout, until she finally let out a dismissive sigh. "Bit late in the season for vernal white, don't you think?" How pedestrian of her, frankly. She would have said more, something along the line of florals? How original. But then that would be a knock her own, far more superior version of this same outfit, and so she said nothing else.

She breezed past the girl as though she weren't there, tossing her vintage Prada on the couch like it cost nothing, and moving on to inspect the kitchen and the--- the-- "MY TEA SET!" Annie was positively squealing at the sight of the blue floral pot. "Oh, Davie, I knew you used it every day. I was just telling your father, do you think he'll remember to set out the antique blue one? And he said no, he had no idea what I was talking about, but of course I knew you'd remember."

This conversation was, of course, a half-fabrication. She sighed contentedly and waited by the tea set, obviously waiting for David to pull out her seat for her.


David survived the face smacking/arm pinching greeting with only three a few twitches of his nose and one severe eye spasm, and then he was turning around, a smile plastered on his face, as he went to collect his mother's handbag and move it to one of the hooks by the door.

"I think she likes you," he murmured to Jessica as he returned, grabbing her by the hand and tugging her over to the table behind Mother.

He never did notice the stupid old-fashioned cues like when women would wait for the door to be opened for them. Instead, he insisted on pulling Jessica closer to the redhead, standing as close to her as he dared. "Mum, you forgot to shake Jessica's hand. This is Jessica Tomás, you know, my girlfriend."

Was he pushing it? Already? Noooooooooooo not at all. But this WAS his place and he WAS going to insist on politeness from all parties this afternoon.

Few thoughts as ole' reddy came in.

1. Good lord no wonder David was the way he was.
2. She was very pretty. Also, very scary looking.
3. Wasn't David nearly three decades old? Surely not only three years?
4. That was a very nice purse, and curse anyone who would just throw it on the couch.
5. Florals were very nice, excuse you, miss ma'am.
6. Following fashion tends was soooooo out of style, Bunz.

Ahem.

Jessica found herself smiling despite all these thoughts and absolutely guffawing at the commentary on her dress. "I didn't think people followed those rules. They certainly don't in the celebrity outlets of the world," she said with a lazy gesture of her hand. "I used to attend all those events with my former clients...and...well, you see, it's rather out of style and old-fashioned to follow those...old rules. I quite like white. It goes well with my complexion," she touched her cheek and smiled.

She had not come to the same conclusion David had about Anastasia's feelings towards her, but she smiled genuinely at him nonetheless, unable to control the *HEART EYES EMOJI* look. But she did lean over and laugh slightly. "We don't need to shake hands if she doesn't want to, Davie." Oh yes, she used Davie.

She used Davie.

Could she vomit yet? No? She was putting on a brave face? All right????

"I do love me a nude heel moment, ma'am," she said as she gestured at the woman's shoes.

A slow smile curled upon the redhead's freshly glossed lips, the smile broadening dangerously the more Jessica spoke. This.... insolent child. This insolent child did not even know the term fashion show, much less behind the scenes select preview night nor the phrase high jewelry. Those events? Celebrity... outlet? What was she, a gossip columnist? A budget shopper? Annie did not know and did not care.

"How cute," she spoke solely to David, her blue eyes shifting to focus only on his nearly identical (albeit bespectacled) ones. Her tone was clipped and short, not rude, but absolutely dripping with condescension. "Only those without taste need rules, and only those with taste actually know how to break them. Being well dressed hasn't much to do with having good clothes. It's a question of good balance and good common sense, as you know, my dear."

She (and Oscar de la Renta) had spoken. Annie shook her head, bemused but actually seething, and tapped her claws long, polished nails on the back of the chair. "David, please pull out my chair for me. I see your girlfriend has come to expect less, given that she was raised by heathens without any manners nor knowledge of grammar, but I know I raised you better than this."

She gave him her stern motherly look (we all know THE LOOK) that quite clearly said 1) she shouldn't have had to ask, and 2) she wouldn't ask again.

Naturally, she ignored the remark about her shoes. I do love me a nude heel? Truly, the girl did not even know the rules of English grammar and punctuation, then? How...... disappointing (and not, entirely, surprising, given her choice of clothing for this fall tea).


O...kay..... then. She wouldn't be shaking Jessica's hand. David's face fell as his attempts to bring the peace and make the introductions were half-ignored, not surprisingly, by his own mother.

"No," he said firmly though, not budging, and giving Jessica's hand a warning squeeze. She could have said less, in his opinion, but then, his mom HAD been snobbish right off the bat.

Instead, he moved them around the table and pulled out Jessica's chair first, then returned to help his ailing mum into hers. "You know, you'd be able to set down yourself if you didn't insist on heels that are four inches too tall."

Of course she knew the term. She was just NERVOUS and wasn't even exclusively TALKING about fashion shows! She immediately disliked the way the woman spoke to her but through talking to DAVIE. It made her feel so second-class, an emotion she had not felt in quite some time. It was bringing out feelings she did not enjoy. She would need to decompress after this.

For now, she needed something to drink, and she wasn't sure tea would quite cute it.

Wait a minute - heathens? Manners? Grammar? What was she poking at? The feeling within her roared, and she was positive steam was slooooowly starting to filter out through her ears. She had dealt with similar attitudes...it just sucked that it was her partner's mother. Someone she would have to deal with for a loooooong time if their relationship continued. She chuckled again, twirling some of her hair around her finger.

"My parents are actually very aware of manners. I guess they just have different values, though. I'm not - I don't come from the same kind of people David does. I apologize if I'm not well versed in all this...even though my mother is English, I've never been to tea before. I was kind of excited to have a proper one today," she thought seeming as unphased as possible would be okay. She could be a very good actress when need be.

Jessica also wasn't quite sure David's what that hand!squeeze meant, but she supposed it wasn't good. Ugh. Ugh. "Thanks Davie," she said softly before watching him do the same for Anastasia.

NO?

Her dear Davie DARED to DISOB---

Anastasia WATCHED through eyes that were now slits as he seated that hussy first, and then came to push her and her chair in. She sat without another word, again ignoring the comments on her famous footwear. David knew damn well that she even gardened in heels, and unlike some cultures, she did not take her shoes off even indoors.

Well, except sometimes at home and on the couch.

BACK TO THE HUSSY her eyes went, all glares as she was now forced to look directly at her instead of at her darling boy. That's right, the girl did not have the same background as David, or so she'd heard and investigated. She felt herself softening, in spite of everything, as the insolent one admitted she had never had a proper English tea.

So in spite of it all, she did address Jessica, though her eyes now drifted imperiously to a spot just over her head. "Well. One would think that an English mother would raise her child right, but not everyone was raised by me."

Of course she gave herself all the credit, even though Ethan had had a MUCH larger hand in David's formative years while Bunz was the Headmistress. As one does. Anastasia affectionately patted Davie's hand as he sat down again.


...and David immediately withdrew that hand from his mother's cold, snake-like skin. No touching. Not when she was so blatantly rude. He read her tone, her classist, elitist, possibly discriminatory tone.

"Jessica was raised in the Phillippines until she was 19," he recited stated, for the record, although he was not nearly as cold back to his mother as she deserved. "She comes from a fine family. I've met her brother, in fact. AND," he cleared his throat as he began fussing with the tea, tapping it with his wand to warm it up again, "she speaks five languages and works in the department of international cooperation."

So really, could she lay off for a bit? David fixed his eyes on his mum, not even TEMPTED to fidget with his glasses. Okay, he was tempted, but he didn't do it.

Ahhhh. The pieces were unfolding, they were. Or rather, revealing themselves, and the puzzle was just about complete. Jessica hadn't been able to tell what exactly that feeling was because honestly, it had been A VERY LONG TIME since someone had treated her this way - and once Anastasia spoke, it made all the sense in the world.

"I guess my mother got sucked into the pinoy lifestyle. The island life has a way of dazzling even the best of folks," she let out a casual chuckle, not tearing her gaze away from Mrs. Truebridge. Her diction was very purposely chosen.

David attempting to take up for her was nice, but Jessica knew it would not stop his mother from thinking whatever she already thought. It was done the moment she saw what Jessica looked like, sounded like, and acted like. And now that she had a better understanding of the woman, Jessica definitely felt better able to deal with her. "David is very lucky to have had you, actually. He's one of the smartest, most talented people I know," she drew her gaze away from his mother to smile at him. He was very sweet, did he know? Did he also know she wanted to spend the night tonight? And like......just sort cry in his arms? Yes? Okay. Could that be communicated in one simple look????

Yikes, she was glad he didn't go on about her brother. Merlin, the two would NOT get along. Bryant wasn't even was good with words as she was, and the thought of them ever sharing the same space was a truly frightening thought. "Jee, Davie. If you wanted me to present my resume, you should have asked," she tried to sound casual, light, and playful, before turning back to Anastasia. "Anyway...did you want David to join us, and did you want it to be just us two? What should we do first? I'd like to learn how to do all of this correctly." And then break all the rules later, yes? Yes.

She slipped a hand to David's thigh where she kept it there, almost as a comfort to her.

None of this was new information for Anastasia; at least, what was coming from her son's mouth was not brand-new. She did not know what pinoy meant but she sympathetically tsked along anyway. "And?" she prompted Jessica as though she were one of her thicker former students (and she possibly was [maybe even the thickest, who knew]). "What was your youth like? Do you have a large family?" There were some assumptions built in there about Jessica's background. "Why did you move here then, if island life is so charming?"

She stopped bristling so much, becoming a little less like a pinecone and a little more like a lotus flower, as she blossomed under Jessica's compliments of her and her son. "I know," she agreed, also looking to her son. Even though she seldom said as much as directly. "He's all those things." She just barely bit back the comment that is why he deserves better than you, but it hung heavy in the air, unsaid but strongly thought.

Switching topics, she pretended like she didn't understand the girl's confusion around tea time. "It's simply tea, dear," she stated frostily. "David will pour it and then we'll sip it." And she would be seeing how he poured it, because she had taught him the right way and the wrong way, and would be noticing and judging how much sugar Jessica added to hers, but alas.


There, that was better, wasn't it? David made a soft sound of warning, a cluck almost, at his mother. His ears were turning red from all the compliments, too; couldn't they talk about themselves for a bit?

He took it as a good sign that his mother was interrogating Jessica; that meant she hadn't written her off all the way yet. He did his best to smile a little at Jessica's comment, but found that he was rather tongue-tied at the moment. He felt her hand on his leg and tried not to raise his eyebrows or grin at her naughtily or anything of the sort. His mother was RIGHT THERE, Jessica!!! No funny business!

Instead, he just fussed with the tea some more. "Nearly ready, now," he declared offhandedly. "Milk and sugar are in the pots you gave me, Mum." Just pointing that out to her, so she'd be pleased.

Jessica continued to smile, though, it was probably more genuine than she normally would have been only because when speaking of home, and her family, she felt so warm. "Do you mean a large immediate family or...? I have only a brother, my mum, my dad. And I don't have all that many cousins. I guess you could say no, I don't have a large family in any aspect - either immediate or extended." Was it a good thing to have a large family or no? Jessica couldn't quite tell, or she might have just flat out LIED.

Ooooh onto the next question! How to answer it while preening MISS ANASTASIA without feeding too much into this woman's elitism. "Well..." she started, glancing at David in an effort to pull in some of his BIG BRAIN ENERGY. Was it working? Could he transfer any of it?! "I could have happily led a life there. However...there's more university choices here, and I knew English....and my mother is from here. So I really just wanted to. And I have been here ever since. I loved the profession I got into when I first got over here." Which she could go into if David's mother so desired. "I started at the ministry what is it, Davie - " she looked over at him and smiiiiiled. "Two years ago now? Didn't we start at the same time? Maybe I started a little after you...I cannot remember now," Because it honestly felt like ten years and six months simultaneously.

She nodded as David began to pour them both a cup. "How much sugar and milk, then, is considered the proper amount, ma'am?" she would drink this tea the way Anastasia had it no matter how disgusting it was. It wasn't the worst thing she had ever put in her mouth, so....

And don't worry, Davie. We'll remove the hand now. No need to be concerned.

Annie didn't know what she meant either; she was just once again operating on assumptions. "Interesting," was all she replied to Jessica. She'd be ruminating on this response later, possibly talking it over with her husband (or, more than likely, her plants).

This answer was also a surprisingly decent one, but never fear. The former professor never ran out of ideas to torture help the youth. She wasn't even particularly interested in the girl's career, though she supposed that may have had something to do with why David selected her. "Your life plans, though," she tsked and brought Jessica back to that subject, "include how many children you plan to birth yourself?"


"MOTHER," David cut in, or rather, yelped. This topic was OFF LIMITS. They had GONE THROUGH THIS. "Jessica, you don't have to answer her." His eyes were wide and frightened deer-like; all that was missing was a pair of antlers. Where was Valerie Gray when you needed her, huh? He swallowed thickly, his Adam's apple bobbing, and then plucked his specs off his nose and began polishing them on his shirt.

His mum could pour the tea for all he cared. How dare she? They would be having words after this. And at least one week of no contact, no owls, no Howlers, no Floo network tracing, no two-sided mirrors, no carrier pigeon requests, no coded radio messages, no smoke signals, nothing.


Anastasia did pour the tea then, a self-satisfied smirk upon her lips. Or, rather, she poured her own. "Help yourself, Jessica," she said sweetly, not answering her question. It was a test, you see. "And remind me what you do at the Ministry again?" Annie's eyes were on Davie, though, just look at her poor flustered baby. Seeing how much she could still rattle her son made her feel all warm inside.

But, yes, even she wanted grandchildren one day. If for nothing else, then to continue the line.

HA!

Jessica was glad she hadn't been drinking any tea. She would have snorted it all over the table and horrified David's mother. Ha! HA! She had actually been prepared for this question, and she wondered what kind of number Mama True wanted to hear. Lot of kids? One to adore and dote on?

"I definitely want kids, ma'am," she chuckled a little, her cheeks turning red mostly because of the implications there. And David's reaction was amusing, too. Did he know he was amusing his mother? Jessica could see it in her face. It was...somewhat similar to the same kind "David, it's okay. Really. Women get used to being asked these questions," she smiled as she met his gaze. Men never got asked this. Hmph. "I get asked it ALL the time back home. And worse," she chuckled more before obliging Anastasia and pouring her own tea. "I want however many...happen. If that's two, lovely. Ten? Well...okay." Yikes, not really, but whatever. She probably wanted around three. Two. Three. Not one. One would be lonely. Look at David!

She didn't answer about the tea, so Jessica tried to mimic whatever Anastasia added to her own. "I work for the Department of International Magical Cooperation as a foreign relations officer. Basically, I keep in touch with the embassies in Southeast Asia and make sure all is running smoothly as well as helping any ambassadors from those countries survive and thrive here. And loootttts of other boring stuff, too," she gave a wave of her hand before sipping her tea GENTLY. Barely sipping, actually.

David wasn't used to that kind of question though!!! He swallowed the lump in his throat, not looking at anyone or anything, not saying anything for now. He... he.... he didn't mind Jessica's answer, was the thing, but he also literally never ever thought about children or kids or any of that. Ever! He NEVER devoted brain space to such activity!

Anastasia could have tittered at the reaction from her son. She nearly did, too, except it would have caused bubbles and spit to blow across her cup of tea and she wasn't having that. She added a small cube of sugar to hers, then a wee pour of milk, and stirred it all up with a dainty little spoon.

She was, actually, listening to Jessica's answer(s) and acknowledging them begrudgingly. Because again, she wanted grandkids of her own. "That's... acceptable...." she stated a bit of a stuffy pause. Then the redhead sipped her tea and tried not to smile a little. Yes, she still didn't like Jessica, it was, after all, entirely possible that she would never like her, but she would... not try to break up David and her.

Yet.

"I see," she pretended to listen to the bit about work, though really she was imagining what Jessica and David's kids would look like. Would even of them even have her boy's eyes?! Not that they were paricularly great eyes or anything; they had, after all, needed vision correction. Still did, to this day. "Right, sounds important..."

Annie looked over to Davie and then back to Jessica, watching to see how much sugar and things Jessica had added to her cup. "And would you continue working if you had children?" Just asking, of course. Innocently asking.

So this topic wasn't going anywhere. All right. Jessica added a sugar cube to her tea, mixed it a bit, and like a DROP of milk...and mixed it. And then sipped more of it than she meant to because she hadn't really even thought about ANYTHING related to a future with kids yet. She had only JUST started dating Davie. Like, jeeze, woman.

Acceptable was better than anything else she had expected from Anastasia, and so she felt her chest begin to relax. She just smiled a little and nodded. Right. Acceptable! That was a passing grade in school! Not that she had ever received one...but....you know. Jessica thought of it as a humbling experience. It also seemed that his mother didn't have much to say about Jessica's career, which she thought was a GOOD thing because it meant...it was one less thing she could be critical about.

"Well, ma'am, that's a good question," she chuckled a little, hesitant to answer. "I think I would love to stay at work, but....my family would heavily pressure me to stay home at least when they're little. And I...I guess I agree. After all, my mama stayed home with us before we went off to school. I think my dad's family kind of expected her to." She sipped her tea again. "As long as monetarily it makes sense, I suppose. Which...won't be, I'm sure, for me. I'm doing just fine," she smiled wider and leaned back, twirling a loose strand of her hair absentmindedly with her free hand.

She shot David a reassuring look. Like, please, it's okay, love.

Mhmm, mhmmm, yes, that was an acceptable answer as well; although, Anastasia absolutely could not allow the other woman to know she approved of her dedication to her hypothetical children. (One of her personal regrets was that she had not had more time at home with Davie to toughen him up; alas, unlike Jessica, Annie had been called to take up the mantle of Headmistress. An important job not just anyone vaguely international could do.)

So instead, she poked at the girlfriend verbally: "I thought your career was important to you, Jessica. I'm a little surprised you would give it up so easily. Do you often cave to familiar pressures or are do you have more of a backbone, do you think?"

She innocently blinked her long faux eyelashes at Jessica a few times, a saccharine smile plastered to her lips just above the teacup she held there. Also. Bringing up how much money she made, just like that? Truly, the girl was far too bourgeoisie for her son; why, she was practically bordering on proletariat. Where had he found her? At the Ministry or in an alleyway? He had always been prone to trying to save (or experiment on/with) stray animals. She heartily disapproved of this little.... fling of his. But, again, she knew it wouldn't last forever and that she wouldn't have to put much effort into breaking it up. Why, this tea party might just do the trick on its own.

The woman said and revealed nothing of her thoughts as she sat there though. She was also ignoring David's little anxiety spiral, because he really needed to work on that. This was why she had pushed him into Occlumency lessons. This weakness with managing his emotions. It was disappointing.


David really was going on a trip, with so many thoughts now occurring to him that he had not even previously considered for any reason whatsoever. Of course he had vaguely thought he might want children one day? One day? In the distant future? Mostly he only had this thought when speaking with one of his friends who had children or when his mother subtly nudged him in that direction, but he had never actually considered a way to make this happen. And that was mostly due to his negative self-perception that anyone would ever want to be with him in the first place, much less for the long-term, so how could he---

He was staring a bit open-mouthed at the teapot now, subconsciously rubbing the spot on his forehead between his eyes, missing the sweet look from Jessica entirely, missing the fact that everyone had tea now except for him.

Could he just... he snapped his head up at the sharp words from his mother to his girlfriend, delivered as sweetly as they were. "Don't." He glared at his mum. He knew what she was doing. Antagonizing, that's what it was. Actively antagonizing Jessica. Again.

The question honestly caught her off guard, and she did not do much to hide it from Anastasia. She put a hand over her heart and leaned back in her chair, eyeing David's mother sliiiiightly. "I'm not sure how to answer. Do I seem like a woman who would do whatever my family wants me to do?" It was sort of a challenge question. She wanted to see how the older woman would answer it???? She wasn't as offended as she put on even if the question HAD tooootally shocked her.

The single word spoken by David made Jessica glanced over at him with concern. Should she acknowledge it? Should she not? If she did, it might make David feel even worse. She almost wished it were just she and Anastasia right now.

So, she sipped her tea and looked back at his mother. "Anyway, I am enjoying the tea. Thank you for inviting me to sip with you," she nodded her head at the woman and then glanced back at David. "And you did a wonderful job with the tea. I guess it isn't too hard, but still," she took another sip as she gently tapped one of her nails against the teacup's side. "I should have brought some sort of dessert, or pastry, to go with the tea. It would have been nice to munch on something."

Keeping it cool, keeping it casual. As much as she could!

Bunz blinked as Jessica returned her question with another question. First of all, how dare she? Second of all, Anastasia was truly stumped to find an answer. She pursed her lips and turned away, to her DEFIANT son.

"Don't what," she snapped at her son, a hint of cold fury and nasty microexpressions blasting his way before she was able to contain it. A passive, neutral, serene, almost blank expression quickly replaced the fit of temper as her face returned to normal.


A muscle started going in his jaw, twitching as he fought to contain his urge to get up and leave just now. He barely contained his thoughts as he shoved his glasses back on the bridge of his nose, turning from his mother to his girlfriend, who was prattling on about something.... something not important.

"Jessica, would you excuse us for a moment? I think I forgot to get the biscuits out of the cabinet..." In case she wanted to grab those for them. Please. His jaw was clenched but he was going to dismiss his mother now. Or as soon as Jessica stood up. Whichever came first.

Tensions were high, weren't they? Was Jessica sweating yet? She actually felt more nervous for her boyfriend than for herself, though, when she heard the tone Anastasia spoke to David with. She didn't think her mother had ever spoken to her like that. Then again, her mother was a soft-spoken Hufflepuff of a woman! "Oh! Of course, love," she said evenly as she stood, daintily, and kissed David's cheek before hurrying her little self to the kitchen! Actually, no, she veered toward his hallway. "I have to use the restroom anyway!" she made sure to say as she exited the room. You know. In case he wondered why she wasn't going to get the biscuits.

It felt like a breath of fresh air to be away from them! Mostly his mother, to be frank, but she as she leaned against the locked bathroom door, she took a deeeeeep breathe. Inhale. EXHALE. How long should she take? She didn't want his mother to have an issue with this, either. So she pretended to use the restroom, washed her hands, and plucked her cheeks a little bit to make them look ruddier.

She then made a LOUD show of leaving the restroom in case they were shouting or whatever and went to the kitchen to, er, grab those biscuits for Davie.

There was definitely some tension in the air; David felt it crackling like eckletricity, or whatever the Muggles called it. He really needed to check out some new books on Muggles so he could understand the world better. Davie nodded miserably to his girlfriend and then, once she was properly out of sight, turned to his mum.

"It's time for you to go, I think," he decided forcefully, or at least as forcefully as he could muster, standing up abruptly and moving over to pull out her seat. He began muttering his complaints under his breath but certainly loud enough for her hearing, since she was his only intended audience.

And so the soft little tirade began:

"We're done here; we should have never had this blasted tea party. Once again, you start in on my friends before they've even been given a proper chance to prove themselves, and I'm not going to go sit here, in my place that I earned for myself, I didn't even take anything from you OR dad, I mean I'm NOT going to tolerate this treatment of a girl I properly like, I think, at least, I think I do, and she doesn't deserve to have to tolerate it either. Jessica is a GOOD PERSON and I WON'T STAND FOR IT, Mother, I mean, this isn't even the first---"

He cut himself off with a firm shake of his head. No. He wasn't even going to entertain the thought. He cleared his throat nervously and gave her seat a small tug with both of his hands on the back of it. "Go. Now." It wasn't a request, it was a command.


Anastasia was plainly shocked! Or at least, the face she was making would lead someone to believe that. Shocked! And! Confused! That her precious baby boy would dare speak to her this way? What had gotten into him?

"I don't like the influence this girl has had on you," she sniffed, refusing to budge even an inch, though she did stir her tea with the little spoon and then lazily dropped it with a loud CLATTER. Obviously, he was going to have to remove her if he wanted her to properly leave. Bunz studied her son across the rim of her teacup, cool as a cucumber as she took a sip from it.

She'd need to use some emotional manipulation on the boy, wouldn't she now. "I haven't even had a tour of your place, Davie dearest." Bunz did her best to allow her blue eyes, so alike his own, to fill with tears. Well, her eyes probably only looked shiny at best. The woman was a glacier 2.4 million years ago. "Davie, can't I at least see your greenhouse you told your father about? Please, darling, you can't send me away so soon after I came all the way here."

Would it be enough to ask to see the plants? She was willing to bet Jessica never took an interest in his plants. And what's more, they were not shouting, they would never, they had far too many manners for that. But she also didn't look around to see where the little tart had skipped off to. "I promise, dear, I won't say another word to your girl..... friend."

There, see, she'd even conceded the word to him. Wasn't she just a delight? A true honor to have at a tea party.

Get the biscuit tin, very loudly, very SLOWLY to give them time to talk or whatever, and then she'd have to go back to them. What an emotional tea. Her mother would lament that it hadn't gone better, and Jessica already foresaw having to stop her usually mild-mannered mother from apparating over here to give Anastasia a piece of her mind. Living in the Philippines had made her mum much bolder than she had been in her youth.

Aaaaaanyway.

She grabbed the tin, and on hearing the mutterings from the mother-son duo in the sitting area, she silently groaned. Ugh. A spoon fell??? It was what it sounded like, and she dreaded going back even more.

But a few seconds later, here she was, smiling gently as she set the biscuits down in the middle of the table. "Here, David," she said with a nod in his direction. "Now where...was I...." she sat back down to sip on the tea in the quietest way possible.

David did not buy it, this little routine of his mother's; he groaned quietly, still pinching the bridge of his nose as Jessica came back into the room.

"Oh." That's right, he'd told her to grab the biscuits for him, didn't he? "Thank you, Jessica." He tried, and failed, to smile back at her, and instead grabbed his mother's elbow before she could say anything else. "We're going now, actually. We're going on a little tour." That's right, Mum, you can see the greenhouse you wanted so desperately to see.


Anastasia, to give her some credit, didn't put up a fight upon being lead away from the tea. She didn't even say anything to Jessica though, didn't Davie notice that? She merely raised her eyebrows at the girl and allowed her son to lead her away from the table and toward the spare bedroom, or as he called it, 'the greenhouse.' It would hardly live up to her high expectations, she already knew that.

She clucked and followed David, making sure to push her chair in and everything before she left Jessica.


*~*~*~*~*~*


Some time later, there was the sound of the front door closing and The Mother was gone. David looked visibly tired as he came back to the table by the kitchen and sank into his seat, reaching idly for the biscuits.

"So, that's my mum." Understatement of the year, maybe?
