    PostSubject: Long Time No See [Brooke]   Mon Nov 23, 2015 5:03 pm

    Ariel couldn't quite understand why she hadn't bothered to go to all the places in Avalon yet. Having been away for quite some time, she was happy to be back at the campus of Merlin's Academy. She'd missed it, even though there were always stuff to do back home in Drumnadrochit as well. There were always tons of tourists around there, and Ariel'd be lying if she said she'd not gotten, well, acquainted with some of the guys coming to the town. A summer fling was not something Ariel would ever say no to. Not because it was necessary, but simply because it was so damned fun. Literally no strings attached. Even though some of the guys always got too clingy when they saw her house. Well, castle-y mansion. And people said women were gold diggers. Bull.

    But now that she was back, and that with something fierce, she had decided that this year she wouldn't just focus on her grades, she ought to focus on her friends as well. And that meant she'd have to find them as well. She wondered if everyone'd gotten back yet. Ariel was a bit early in her departure, but she'd really missed the place, and even if her home was big enough for her not to see her family at all during the day, the fact was she lived with her parents, and when she'd gotten used to live alone in London for a couple of years, it was no wonder that moving back in with them had taken away a lot of her independence.

    Ariel was pondering about all this when she saw the Tapas Galore. So, Ariel wasn't the biggest fan of tapas, but for some reason, today, it really called to her. She smirked to herself and walked into the diner, seeing it packed with people. She grinned; that was a good sign. She could easily spot all the nice foods around and she quickly got together a plate, though it admittedly was a great deal bigger (and more expensive) than she'd initially planned. Ariel turned around. Now, for a table...

    It's good to be back, was the only thought that ran through her mind as Brooke took a slow walk down the streets of Avalon. Automatically, she was fiddling with the ring on her left hand, the one that proved she was Brooke Astrid and no longer Brooke Walters, despite having been married for quite some time now. Joe had some stuff he needed to do, and so she was taking this time to familiarise herself with the paths once more.

    Joe had been so understanding of her disappearance and lack of being there for him, and she couldn't help but wonder how she managed to find herself such an amazing husband. Life was not the best - and a hand went to her hauntingly flat stomach briefly - but she had Joe, and they had already been through so much. They would make it; they always did.

    Sliding out her phone, she noted the time and then, just because, decided to drop her husband a text. A simple heart emoticon later, and she was ready for lunch. "Let's see," she murmured to herself, glancing around at the different shops. There were so many things she missed eating, local favourite hang outs that hadn't been a hang out in far too long, and there were just too many options and not enough room in her to eat it all.

    And then, the solution came. Tapas. She would get to try multiple things and not just one dish. "Perfect," she said to herself, grinning just a little and wishing either Joe or Cassie were there with her. Eating alone was boring, but she could always hope for a friend to pop up; Merlin knew she had quite a few of those she had suddenly dropped contact with after it happened.

    After choosing her items, she found an empty seat just before the lunch crowd arrived, and took to eating, crowd watching more than she paid attention to the food. And, finally, someone she recognised came her way. It took a couple seconds to place the name, but the moment she did, Brooke was already standing and calling out, "Hey! Ariel! It's been forever since I last saw you! How're you? Do you want to join me?" Motioning to the rather empty table, she offered the witch a smile, and hoped that Ariel hadn't already forgotten her in the months she had been away.

    Ariel barely heard someone calling out to her and was about to give up on the quest for a table and simply take it with her down to the beach or something when she heard her name shouted as well. Ariel spun around quickly, though careful not to bump into anyone or lose any of her expectant food, and spotted a redheaded woman that Ariel hadn't spoken to in way too long. Brooke. A huge grin spread on her face as she hurried over to the semi-vacant table and put her plate down instantly, before wrapping her arms around Brooke. "Brooke! How are you?!" she shouted happily before taking her up on the offer of joining her.

    She beamed at the girl and then remembered that she had actually asked her a couple of questions. "Oh, sorry, I got completely overwhelmed here!" she said, shaking her head, and chuckling a bit. "I've been good, really, but my focus has mainly been on the studies and all. Which I have found to be extremely anti-social, so I'm going to change that now!" she said. "But how about you? How have you been, and what have you been up to?" she asked, grinning wider than ever now. What could be better than friends and food, right?

    And that's when Ariel noticed something glimmering. Her eyes widened considerably, the colour changing from their regular gray to a sparkling blue. "What is this?!" she exclaimed, snatching Brooke's hand and gaping at the ring on her finger. HOW HAD ARIEL NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS?!

    Grinning at the witch that hurried over, Brooke returned the hug, smiling to herself. It was really good to be back. "I'm good," she replied, honestly. "I'm really good." There wasn't much to add, for it was the truth. She was much better than before, but she couldn't really say that, because it would mean having to explain the whole thing with Baby Joe, and Brooke wasn't even sure if Ariel knew about Joe.

    Listening happily to her friend talk about her life, Brooke nodded every few words, chuckling at the comment about being anti-social. "Honestly, I've been rather anti-social myself these past couple months, but I've been catching up with friends and the like, so not so much anymore," she admitted with a laugh.

    "I'm doing really well, actually," she said, pausing for a second. How much should she share? It wasn't as though she wanted to dampen the spirit by talking about something depressing. So, she shrugged. "Been catching up on studies. I fell a bit behind this year, but I'm all caught up now so that's settled."

    But before she could go on, Ariel was grabbing her hand and eyeing the wedding ring. A few freckles spread onto the bridge of her nose, and she grinned a little shyly; Joe still had that effect on her no matter how long they had been together for. But then the question registered, and she frowned just a little. "Wait didn't you get the invite? I could've sworn I sent you one. I mean I sent an invite to all of my friends and trust me Cassie helped me double check all the names." She hesitated, trying to think back, and couldn't remember, so instead, she shrugged. "I really hope I didn't forget you. Did you change address or something?"

    "Anyway Joe proposed December last year - it was quite the romantic thing, actually - and we got married earlier this year," she went on, making a mental note to go back and check the list she still kept (for memory sake, of course) of the people she had sent invites to, just to make sure she hadn't forgotten someone. if she had, well, she would never forgive herself.
