PostSubject: Dinner for Four (Jari+Louis)   Mon Nov 17, 2014 2:46 pm

In bed one lazy sunday morning, or rather noon, since they'd spent the morning with slow lovemaking, Mari and Jake were tangled in sheets and limbs, holding each other and enjoying the haze of consciousness about thirty minutes after their activities. Pressing a sweet kiss to her boyfriends neck Marilyn murmured thoughtfully, "Jake?"

After recieving a small noise of consciousness she continued, "I'd like to invite Louis and his wife to dinner next week, here. Would that be okay, love?" she kissed down his collarbone gently. Continuing her kisses down she got a happy 'mhmyeah' as a response and nippedhis hipbone lightly.

"Really? You're okay with it?"

"'Course, I'm okay with-"
Mari resumed her activities and they didn't speak of it again until the day of, a morning, since Mari invited them for Sunday dinner. So that morning when she stood in the kitchen with two arms full of grocery bags she was surprised to see him in a tshirt and jeans, sitting on the couch.

"What're you doing? They're going to be here in six hours, we have to get ready!"


(Mari)

Jake in all honesty of the world had not known that they were hosting a dinner party. Asking him anything after sex was a sure fire way to get what you wanted, and Marilyn had learnt that in that moment. So Jake had been completely oblivious to the fact his boss and his wife would be coming for dinner the weekend after and had gotten lost in the moment with his girlfriend once more.

"What're you doing? They're going to be here in six hours, we have to get ready!"

"Watching the football, the English are huge on it!" Jake replied, motioning to the people running around on the TV. "Wait... they? Who's they?" Jake asked, looking thoroughly confused in that moment. "Six hours is more than long enough too! I don't need to do anything!" He added, it wasn't like he needed to dress up if they had visitors coming, was it?

"Watching the football, the English are huge on it!"

Marilyn stared at him openmouthed as she dropped the bags on the counter, before turning on him quicker than a seeker, face aghast.

"Six hours is more than long enough too! I don't need to do anything!"


"¿Hablas en serio? No puedo creer que usted! Mi padre va a estar aquí esta noche para la cena, tenemos que limpiar el apartamento y- y- usted!" She exclaimed, running her fingers through her smooth waves. "¿Sabes qué? Ve, limpiar o algo así, me voy a preparar la cena. Ir a poner la mesa, permanecer fuera de la cocina!" She levitated the bags into the kitchen and huffed, following them.

When pursued into the kitchen she used a fewkey Spanish phrases and then, over her shoulder, said Louis and his wife were coming for dinner, to clean up and make the dining area look nice and stay the *bleep* out of the kitchen.

Jake didn't know Spanish, didn't know even a single word in Spanish, and he was confronted with a torrent of it. Looking very taken back with the rampage of words that could honestly have meant anything save for the look on Marilyn's face, Jake tried to understand what was going on. But really, he couldn't.

He hadn't had enough time to collect himself before Marilyn was leaving and without a second thought, Jake was on his feet hurrying after her, still looking highly confused.

But when he'd asked her what she'd said, he'd been hurled an answer and a half.

Jake had merely set the table - remembering to lay it properly because not everyone ate back to front like he did - and then did exactly as he'd been asked. Heading to the shower, Jake spent longer than necessary tidying himself up and moved in to their bedroom. Managing to pick out a pair of black trousers and then tentatively moved back in to the kitchen. "Mari... what shirt should I wear?" Jake asked, getting a short answer of his red, fitted shirt.

After that he'd made to tidy up the rest of the flat, staying away from the kitchen and not resting until their guests were due to arrive.

Snapping her fingers Mari called the elf she was to inherit, Tipsy. Tipsy was a doll, really, giving Marilyn's hand a squeeze before taking over, instructing Marilyn on how to prepare everything and what charms to use, but taking over the largest parts to minimize risk. All the while chatting with Marilyn, calming her down and catching up on her life. The elf looked like she was just itching to give the flat a good, thorough cleaning. But Jake had expressed his discomfort with the idea so Mari didn't let Tipsy do nearly as much as she wanted.

Within three hours Marilyn was getting out and portioning the cream, letting Jake finish decorating it before kissing him on the cheek and apologizing for snapping at him, she was just nervous. Then she left Tipsy to finish up and got showered and dressed, leaving them an hour before the guests arrived, perfectly.

Sitting next to Jake on the couch she kissed his cheek and bit her lip, "You look very handsome, love, are you nervous?"

When Jake had been allowed in to the kitchen, it was only to put the finishing touches on the dessert. Jake didn't mind though, this was Marilyn's thing - though he hadn't missed the help that she'd been receiving, but Jake wouldn't let on about that. He'd ignored the tremble in his hands as Marilyn watched him like a hawk, still a little worried after her words that he didn't understand from earlier, and the point she'd made of not coming in to the kitchen.

But just after he'd finished, the apology had come and Jake waved it away, telling her it was fine and to relax.

It wasn't long before she was heading off to get ready, and Jake was allowed to go back to the football until she came back - looking as beautiful as she always did.

"You look very handsome, love, are you nervous?"

"I had to try to match the beauty that you achieve, but I failed, again." Jake replied softly, kissing her lips as he contemplated whether or not he was nervous. "Not really... Well, a little... I don't really want to lose my job because I say something wrong. Or for giving him food poisoning... or something. But, not as nervous as you are, no." Jake replied with a small shrug.

"I had to try to match the beauty that you achieve, but I failed, again."

Marilyn laughed and moved so she was on his lap, leaning her back against the couch pillow and her thighs on his lap. "Don't know what you're charming me for, I already made dinner, love." The witch teased, pulling him in for a short kiss. Short because of his next words.

"Not really... Well, a little... I don't really want to lose my job because I say something wrong. Or for giving him food poisoning... or something. But, not as nervous as you are, no."


"I'm not nervous."
Okay, her voice went way too high for that. "And you won't lose your- Jake, he's like family, this isn't a business meeting. I'm just- a bit jittery about properly meeting his wife. Only time she's ever seen me was when I was hysterical. Not a grand impression. " She smirked, "And I have potentially big news to share with you two."

Another few moments passed before she frowned, "Food poisoni- Are you insinuating my food will give him food poisoning?"

"Don't know what you're charming me for, I already made dinner, love."

"I charmed you months ago." Jake replied to her teasing, putting his arms around her and holding her close to him. The short kiss brought a smile to his lips though, he loved their brief interactions like this, the subtle gestures, tokens of their affection. He couldn't ask for anything more, even when Marilyn was uptight like she was in that moment.

When Marilyn explained that Louis was like family, Jake raised an eyebrow. "To you, maybe. The last time I spoke to him, I'd just gone to hell and back!" Jake reminded her, he hadn't had a meeting since then, not that he wanted one, Jake was just pretending that lesson hadn't happened.

"And I have potentially big news to share with you two."

"Big news?" Jake asked, confusion touching his brow. They... No... She... No, that couldn't have happened, and she wouldn't tell him at the same time as Louis... No, he'd been careful. STOP PANICKING!

"Food poisoni- Are you insinuating my food will give him food poisoning?"

Letting out a soft chuckle, Jake shook his head, pressing a soft kiss to her lips. "No. I'm teasing, the food will be great!" He assured her, still wondering in the back of his mind what she could possibly mean about big news...

"To you, maybe. The last time I spoke to him, I'd just gone to hell and back!"

"Yes, to me, he is. So trust me, he's not here as your boss."
She gave him another kiss, carressing his cheek lightly, "This is our home, you're safe to relax here, no matter who's coming," The witch reassured with a small smile and a peck on the cheek.

"Big news?"

"Yep," she grinned, crossing her legs and a grin on her face, "Actually, I should tell you first, really," Sheheld his hand and leaned forward, "I was at the healers last week while you were at work, I didn't want to tell you until I was sure, but they confirmed it." Marilyn's eyes crinkled from her smile, "They checked everything and found out that...they can fix my voice! Make it sound like it used to. It's really easy actually," She began gushing, not noticing how her boyfriends body suddenly relaxed beside her.

"Just one micro-surgery and then vocal therapy, but within two to three months I should be fine! What do you think?"

As he was told to relax, Jake looked a little doubtful, from what he knew of their professor and boss, the man was very... well, Jake wasn't sure what he was. Just that he knew to step lightly around the man in case he upset him.

"I was at the healers last week while you were at work, I didn't want to tell you until I was sure, but they confirmed it."

Jake could feel the colour drain from his cheeks as she spoke. The healers... why... she couldn't... they were careful, what with the potion she now took to regulate herself and keep them from... and he used the contraception spell he used just in case when they weren't too hung up on the situation. They were careful.

"They checked everything and found out that...they can fix my voice! Make it sound like it used to. It's really easy actually,"

Jake's whole body relaxed as he exhaled, all panic leaving his body as he chastised himself for jumping to conclusions. Hopefully, Marilyn hadn't noticed his reactions, because it would probably not be helpful.

"Just one micro-surgery and then vocal therapy, but within two to three months I should be fine! What do you think?"

"I think that... that's wonderful!" Jake told her, pressing his lips to hers. "I mean, if you want to go for it I'll support you through everything you need to do. It'll be great for you!" He explained, to him it made no difference if Marilyn spoke how she did now for the rest of her life, or differently, honestly he didn't remember how she had sounded before. "When would you start the treatment?" He asked softly.

"I think that... that's wonderful!"

Mari grinned after he kissed her, kissing him back just as happily, arms around his neck in a loving hug. "I mean, if you want to go for it I'll support you through everything you need to do. It'll be great for you!"

"Thank you,"
she murmured, "I'm really excited. I'd start soon, that's one of the reasons I want to talk to Louis about it as well, it came up over lunch, I'd seen a pamphlet on it in the breakroom and wanted to see if he thought it would be okay, since if it were possible with my vocal folds then I'd not be allowed to speak for a little while." She pressed a kiss to her boyfriends cheek and smiled, "I love you..."

They remained cuddled for a while, until ten minutes to six, when they gave everything a once over and Mari talked to Jagger about not knocking over the guests. Soon it was showtime.

The explanation that she'd already mentioned it to Louis made Jake slightly uncomfortable, he wouldn't lie. But he didn't speak of it, it was Marilyn's choice who she spoke to, of course. It was all irrelevant anyway, because the moment she told him she loved him, Jake had smiled, pressing a soft kiss to her lips and telling her that he loved her too.

With six o'clock nearing, Jake straightened his shirt, and moved to the kitchen, retrieving the wine from the fridge and checking there weren't any marks on the glasses. He was fussing, but he knew that it all had to be perfect so that Marilyn could relax.

Hearing the door go, Jake took a deep breath, telling himself to relax, for Marilyn's sake.

A month in to married life, and Louis was still getting used to the concept. The ring on his finger seemed to be less aggravating as time went on, but he knew there was still a very long way to go before the notion began to feel normally. After the day Marilyn Caldwell had turned up unannounced, he'd come to realise that the woman he'd married was much more capable than he'd realised.

"You're fond of her, aren't you?" Adelisa had asked when they'd sat at dinner the evening of Marilyn's visit. Louis had paused in his movements, putting his knife and fork down and looking to his wife. He was not certain what she'd just asked, and it seemed she already knew. "As if she was your own daughter, I mean." She'd added, and Louis had continued to think about those words.

"I don't know how I would act with children, but Marilyn..." Louis paused, letting out a soft sigh. "She has lost a lot, but she's a fighter. I look after her as much as I can, because she doesn't have anyone else, not anyone who will listen." He explained, not sounding remotely sorry for how he felt, because it would never change.

"I like her." Had been Adelisa's only reply before she continued to eat in her usual delicate manner.

A smile had graced Louis' lips with that admission, and shortly after dinner Marilyn had Floo'd him to tell her everything was okay. Louis had not kept her, telling her to enjoy her evening and that he'd see her at work. His own evening had been spent with his wife, learning about how she'd attended university and studied medicine when she was younger. She worked for charities when they needed someone of her expertise, but never anything full time.

It was that evening that Louis had braved kissing the witch, only a very soft peck on the lips, in thanks for helping Marilyn that day. A small, but positive forward step in his relationship.

The invitation to dinner at Marilyn's flat had come only a week or two later, and Louis had agreed without blinking. The invitation had been extended to Adelisa and the Frenchman had assured Marilyn that they would both be there. So on the Sunday evening at five to six, Louis had taken his wife's hand and apparated to the front door of the flat she lived. He still wore his usual suit and tie, his wife decked in a dark red, full length dress despite the setting. Knocking gently on the door, Louis smiled sideways at Adelisa.

"Her boyfriend is called Jake, also an Auror in tr-"

"The Quidditch player, I believe?"

"Oui." Louis replied, still not overly keen on the career choice of the boy.

"He was fantastic, you know." Adelisa insisted, and Louis simply let out a gentle sound of understanding before the door opened.

"Marilyn, il est bon de vous voir!" He greeted, leaning down to press a kiss on both her cheeks. Adelisa followed suit with a soft 'Bonjour.' before they were shown in to the flat.

"Marilyn, il est bon de vous voir!"

"Et toi! Vous regardez fantastique, vous deux! Adalisa, permettez-moi de vous présenter mon petit ami: Jake Newbury." The girl kissed his cheeks and then his wife's before turning to Jake, "Jake, this is Adalisa, Louis' wife. It's nice to see you both again, please come in," she held the door open and as soon as they stepped in Jagger appeared, reigning himself in a lot ,"And this boy here is Jagger, my service dog, if you need anything you can also let him know, he'll be happy to assist."

Mari led the group into the dining room and as they all settled she smiled and Tipsy appeared, serving drinks and setting the different plates in the kitchen.

While she did so Mari looked from Adalisa to Louis, "How have you two been?"

The introductions were warm from both sides, and as they entered the flat, Louis followed both of the women through. As Adelisa was introduced to Jake, Louis simply smiled to the boy.

"It's so wonderful to meet you, Jake!" Adelisa insisted warmly as she kissed the younger man's cheeks. Jake seemed a little nervous, Louis could already tell, and he felt reassured at that, it would have been much to boring an evening if everyone in his company would have been comfortable. The sight of... well, Louis knew the Newfoundland breed was large, but this was something else.

Bending down only a little, Louis made a fuss over the animal, ignoring the light lick to his face. He'd always wanted a dog of his own, but it had never been convenient. "I'm sure we'll be fine." Louis insisted, righting himself and moving to the dining table, helping his wife in to one of the chair before taking the seat beside her.

The discomfort in the younger man only seemed to grow at the appearance of a house-elf, but the Frenchman ignored it, noting Jake at least had the manners to help Marilyn in to her seat too. Good.

"How have you two been?"

"Very well, merci." Adelisa replied for them, and Louis let her, tasting the wine instead of speaking. "Louis and I have been spending time learning about one another's interests."

"Mainly yours." Louis amended. "I'm but a boring old man." He joked softly, a small chuckle leaving his lips.

"Cela ne veut pas vrai, ma chérie." Adelisa replied, a small fond smile touching her lips. "I've been learning the Clement history though, it is quite wonderful. And you two? Louis tells me the flat is new, and Jake... moved from America?"

"Jake, this is Adalisa, Louis' wife. It's nice to see you both again, please come in,"

"It's nice to meet you." Jake responded, to the witch as she kissed both his cheeks. The French flowing in the house was putting him on edge, if he was honest, but only because he didn't have a clue what they were saying.

There came no offer of the Frenchman's hand, so Jake stood awkwardly to the side until they moved to the kitchen. The arrival of the house-elf made Jake less comfortable, he really didn't like the things, especially not in their home.

The conversation moved to what the older couple had been up to, and Jake was happier listening to Louis' wife. Jake didn't know the man was married, but it seemed to be a recent thing, from her answer, and when it was thrown back at them, Jake considered an answer. "Yes, I'm from America." Jake responded with a small smile. "We've been settling in to the flat, mostly. And working, and studying." He offered, it wasn't much of an answer, but he was too nervous to add more.

"Louis and I have been spending time learning about one another's interests."

"Mainly yours." Louis amended. "I'm but a boring old man."


"Now that's really not true, Louis,
" Marilyn laughed good nature-ly and then let Jake take over whilst the salad was served.

"We've been settling in to the flat, mostly. And working, and studying."


"Yes, we have a lot of studying to do, but it's great, I love it. Please, everyone, enjoy the meal, dig in." She toasted, clinking her glass with everyones before they tucked in, her left hand finding Jake's right and squeezing it gently in reassurance.

"Clement history is certainly fascinating, aren't the Blacks originally closely related to the Clements?"
She inquired, vaguely remembering her lessons. Mari wished Jake would relax, his discomfort was making her nervous. The light conversation continued until the main course, the entire meal vegetarian as she had not known whether or not Adalisa ate meat.

Halfway through the main course she smiled and cleared her throat delicately, "I do have a bit of news though," She smiled, holding Jake's hand, "I went to the Healers this week and they confirmed...they can save my voice! I'd start treatment whenever most convient for Uni, should take four weeks all in all."

As the boy answered the question, Louis nodded, indeed everything looked very new, and the flat still had the slight 'new home' odour, but they seemed to have made it homely enough. However, Louis wasn't one to pass compliments easily, so he didn't speak towards the boy, only acknowledging Marilyn as she spoke.

"I like to keep you all busy." Louis replied in regards to their studying, though he didn't go in to his work. Such things weren't really for ladies, but Louis knew Adelisa was quite... well, open to most things, surprisingly.

The starter served as a good break in the conversation, and Louis tucked in, complimenting Marilyn on her work despite making an educated that it was probably aided by the house elf that served up the food.

"Clement history is certainly fascinating, aren't the Blacks originally closely related to the Clements?"

Louis paused, chewing his mouthful of salad carefully, swallowing and then taking up his napkin to wipe his mouth despite there being nothing there. "The Clement family were linked to the Noir family back in France a very long time ago. It seems one of them got away to England and changed their name to the English form." He explained, knowing the Newbury boy wouldn't know this. Adelisa's hand came to his in that moment.

"Originally close, oui. Not so traceable now." The witch supplied with a small smile, defusing the slight tension that had risen so that the dinner could continued.

However, as the main course came out, the news of Marilyn going to the Healer's had Louis reacting once more. Subtle, as always, with his hand curling in to a fist as his eyes moved from Marilyn to Jake. How dare he-

"...they can save my voice! I'd start treatment whenever most convenient for Uni, should take four weeks all in all."

Relaxing, Louis' eyes moved back to Marilyn's, his face turning up in to a warm smile as he took in the news that the awful things that she'd been put through could be corrected. "That's great news!" Louis and Adelisa insisted, both smiling so radiantly it was almost out of character for the man. "University is almost finished. You'll have your results soon, but if you need to go before the end of term, I have no hesitation in writing that authorisation for you!" Louis insisted, not going to even think of blocking her from getting what she wanted in that moment.

"University is almost finished. You'll have your results soon, but if you need to go before the end of term, I have no hesitation in writing that authorisation for you!"

Briefly Marilyn had noticed the slight tension in her father-figure arise and then lessen, and it seemed directed at Jake? Had she missed something? But soon he and his wife were smiling brightly and she smiled excitedly in return, her hand that held Jake's intertwining their fingers, the silver of her bracelet feeling cold as usual.

"They have a spot open for the operation in two weeks, actually, which means I won't be speaking for a week afterwards, if you could write up the papers that would be wonderful, Louis, thank you."They began discussing the treatment and Jagger trotted in to sit a bit next to Jake, noticing his nerves and setting his massive, furry head on Jake's lap,with the most grim and serious expression on his scarred face.

Jake honestly wished he could have corrected Marilyn in the way she explained what she'd found. For the second time that day he found himself panicking about the notion of his girlfriend being pregnant despite knowing she couldn't be. And he wasn't stupid enough to see that Louis was thinking along the same lines. Jake simply avoided eye contact with everyone at the dinner table, wondering how much longer this torment was going to last.

The conversation shifted though, both Adelisa and Louis asking questions Jake hadn't thought to ask. Marilyn replied to each of them calmly though, and Jake simply sat by, unanimated and nodding his agreement in places.

When Jagger came in, Jake wondered for a moment if Marilyn was okay, Jagger always relaxed unless he was needed, so him moving without Marilyn calling him was perhaps a little worrying. But it wasn't Jake the dog came to, it was him. With Jagger's big head in his lap, Jake looked down questioningly at the dog who usually ignored his presence before gently patting his head.

That... well, that was new.

Dessert finally arrived, and Jagger didn't move. Jake simply allowed him to stay there, tucking in to the food. He'd just finished his second mouthful when Adelisa spoke. "Did you help with the dinner, Jake?" She asked and Jake paused, lowering his spoon and looking sideways at Marilyn uncertainly.

"Well... Marilyn wanted... I put the fruit on the dessert. But I do usually cook for us, or help Marilyn. She just... well, she didn't want me in the kitchen today." Jake explained nervously, not looking towards his professor because he didn't want to know if he'd upset the man.

"Well... Marilyn wanted... I put the fruit on the dessert. But I do usually cook for us, or help Marilyn. She just... well, she didn't want me in the kitchen today."

Marilyn nodded, "Yes, he does, I only helped, too, today, Tipsy did most of it, she's such a dear. But we don't often require her services, Jake and I enjoy cooking together, though he's certainly a better cook than I am. I'm still getting the hang of it." The witch admitted with a smile, taking note of her Service dog who'd come to Jake's aid. How sweet, she though, I told Jake there was no feud between him and the dog, what a drama queen...

"Last saturday after our dance class he whipped up a delicious veal chop with portabello mushrooms, he put a lot of effort into it, didn't let me do a thing
." She leaned over to kiss him on the cheek.

Listening to Jake defend himself unnecessarily, Louis took notice of the sudden appearance of the dog at the younger man's lap before concentrating back on Marilyn. If the boy couldn't host a small dinner party, it didn't look like he was worth much. But, for some reason, Marilyn liked him, Louis had yet to find the reason though.

"Last saturday after our dance class he whipped up a delicious veal chop with portabello mushrooms, he put a lot of effort into it, didn't let me do a thing."

"You two dance? What kind?" Adelisa asked, curiosity touching her features as she looked between the two across the table. In fairness, Louis didn't know about this side to either of his trainees, but it was enlightening, to say the least. "My favourite is ballroom, despite myself, but I do love to watch the more modern versions. You will let Louis and I know if you enter any competitions so as we may watch, won't you, Marilyn?" She continued, taking an active role in Marilyn's life, just like her husband already had.

"My favourite is ballroom, despite myself, but I do love to watch the more modern versions. You will let Louis and I know if you enter any competitions so as we may watch, won't you, Marilyn?"

"We do ballroom dancing, too, Jake and I both used to do it when we were younger, not together, and he surprised me by signing us up for classes together about...a year and a half ago? We go every week."
The womans request was a bit of a surprise, but a sweet one that brought a gentle, genuine smile to Marilyn's lips.

"Yes, of course I will. Why don't we show you what we've done last lesson after this? Sound alright, love?
" She asked Jake who agreed, albeit with less enthusiasm than she had.

Before they knew it the party retired to the living room, Tipsy clearing in the kitchen, and a soft crooning song, It Had To Be You by Frank Sinatra, as she took up position with Jake and they began, concentrating only on each other. Mari's eyes positively shown with love and warmth for the man holding her.

The explanation on their dancing made Jake smile slightly. "In fairness, it was my little sister who knew Marilyn liked to dance, so I can't really take all the credit. But we've been doing it every Saturday since we signed up." Jake amended Marilyn's statement, modesty was most certainly something he could allow in such situations.

"Yes, of course I will. Why don't we show you what we've done last lesson after this? Sound alright, love?"

"Sure." Jake replied with a small smile. Honestly he couldn't think of anything worse than dancing in front of his boss, but he supposed it would give him a break, he could just focus on Marilyn and forget the world. Like he did every dance lesson they'd taken.

With dinner finishing, Jake waited for the guests to head in to the next room, and finished his glass of champagne before following them. Music was already playing in the room, and he moved to Marilyn's arms, slipping in to a slow dance with the witch as a small, genuine smile graced his lips. Getting lost in Marilyn was easy when you knew how.

Marilyn pressed a soft kiss to Jake's cheek as they danced and smiled up at him, happily swaying and twirling in his arms, laughing when he dipped her as the song faded out, giving him a short, sweet kiss. Turning back to Louis and Adelisa as the nexxt song, Suddenly Love, started playing the witch grinned at the pair.

"Why don't you join us on the dancefloor? The more the merrier, and Louis is such a lovely dancer." Mari wasn't blind, she could see it was an arranged marriage that her father-figure didn't seem 100% comfortablewith, yet, there were many clues hinting to that. But she could see how sweet Adelisa was, both from this evening and that one, horrific night. Sometimes affection needed a little push, she thought.

Twirling back with Jake their dancing relaxed as the fell back into their rhythm, their own little world of soft laughing, silly spins and dancing nose-to-nose, eyes crinkling from their smiles, but always totally focused on one another.
