Shelby! It has taken me FOREVER to get here. I'm so sorry; it wasn't for lack of enthusiasm! By the way, I don't know that I ever congratulated you on your Dobby and Snitch - I can't think of a minor character more deserving than your Eileen.

Eileen's behavior in the first part of the chapter was interesting. She's clearly not an incompetent witch, so is her recent string of accidents just a by-product of her nervousness related to Tobias? I think that's what you were trying to allude to, but it wasn't crystal clear for me. I did like how Eileen and Lorraine bonded over fixing the ruined dress, and I hope Lorraine is around to boost Eileen's confidence for a long time. It'll be interesting to see if Eileen actually ends up going to her school reunion.

The breakfast meeting of Eileen and Tobias was so delightfully awkward! I can see how poor Severus failed to inherit anything resembling romantic charisma or confidence. I say "delightfully" because I think it only works for a pair like this, where both are nervous and inexperienced. If Eileen had bolted upstairs when talking to a smoother sort of gentleman, I imagine he wouldn't have bothered seeking out a ninth date, but Tobias evidently doesn't regard it as being too out of the ordinary. It's interesting to see her turn into a puddle, of sorts, in front of him. (And now I wonder where things went wrong, even though I kind of know - I can see how she'll regret eventually telling him the truth. Sigh. All this acceptance and then... how tragic.)

Okay, enough of my musing. This was a good chapter as always, and I look forward to the next!
