RP: Dinner with the Enemy?
Characters: Alicia Spinnet, Xavier Selwyn Place: Selwyn Estate Date: 21 September 1997 Summary: A dinner party in enemy territory. Status: Private/Complete Warnings: TBD/Rating TBD:
Dinner had been lovely, although it was odd to be here, with Xavier's family and some of his parent's friends. She was most definitely the youngest person there, and she had never felt more like arm-candy in her life when she was introduced and all the old men's eyes followed her around the room.
Thank Merlin her parents weren't there, she couldn't have born the questions. Actually, she didn't know barely any of the people there, except, perhaps, the most passing acquaintance or familiarity with the name. The Selwyns obviously traveled in vastly different social circles than her family.
Dinner was almost over, they were on to dessert and coffee, and she had kept the conversation polite at their end of the table, which, horrifyingly, was close to Xavier's mother. All her earlier reservations about the man were gone in this instant, when she was simply a very young woman brought to his home, which made her question, just a little, his motives.
