We've all seen a rebus like "midstuckdle" (stuck in the middle). The following clues are "revrebuseserse" (rebuses in reverse). That is, the clues below are answers to rebuses which all use the "in" construction.

However, the original rebus from the clues below will actually form a word. For example, "Not old in actually existing" would be "renewal" (new in real). Can you solve the rest?

1. A female relative in quickly departed the scene
2. Not off in a length of time
3. Fluid for writing in a part of a plane
4. A light at night in wet dirt
5. To talk in a soft, loving voice in a confidence trick
6. To separate in a legal document


1. Flaunted (aunt in fled)
2. Honour (on in hour)
3. Winking (ink in wing)
4. Mustard (star in mud)
5. Cocoon (coo in con)
6. Departed (part in deed)
