Eileen adjusts her appearance every so often to reassure her Earthly neighbours but the addition of odd grey hairs is not enough to fool anyone. Jenny thinks her mother is trying to cover up this “impediment! But Jenny forgets her mother practically invented the idea of undercover work on other planets and how to ensure one’s cover was never wrecked. Privately Jenny has taken note of some of Eileen’s appearance spells, planning to use them in reverse to keep her appearance young looking! Ironically this is practically what most fairies do but Eileen has not had the heart and/or courage to tell her daughter this. Jenny is not going to take this well and Eileen is sick of arguing with her at the moment.
Jenny and Eileen’s neighbours have no reason to suspect anything amiss, something the two ladies have done a great deal to ensure. Even Jenny can see the usefulness of magic here to prevent unfortunate questions though she still hates using it at all. Eileen has not enlightened her daughter as to the various nasty species in space who feed on magic (and which have attacked the Kingdom in the past to get a plentiful supply of it by literally feasting on the realm’s inhabitants). Eileen can’t help but feel ignorance is bliss here though in fairness she is on alert for anything amiss approaching Earth. Let’s just say Eileen is highly unlikely to put out the welcome mat. Nor does Eileen feel capable of dealing with what she thinks would be Jennifer’s hysterics if the girl did know there is life in the wide blue yonder, most of which you wouldn’t want to meet in open spaces and daylight yet alone a dark alley!
