Almost relieved to be back at school

Posted on 2006.04.13 at 17:22
Summer was good in parts, not in others. It was lovely to get so many owls from Ted, especially as I know he has other things on his mind. of course I had to be a bit discreet in opening the letters, but that's to be expected And I almost recovered my relationship with my sisters, which hadn't been at its best.

And then Sirius ran away. And all hell broke loose. Of course the family was completely divided over this - Bella sided with Sirius' parents, of course, so did Mother and Father although I don't think they are totally convinced. I tried to argue his case, but no-one would listen except to shout me down. (well, except Uncle Alphard, but no-one listens to him either...) Cissy didn't say anything, really, but I can see it affected her. Regulus, I don't know about. He isn't the happy little boy he was, that's for sure. Then the issue of my choice of friends came up, and - well, anyone who knows my family can imagine. Plus Bella and Rodolphus keep disappearing - working in Rodolphus' family business is their story, but they won't say what work they're doing.

So being back at school is a bit of a relief, which it has never been before. Maybe I'm turning into a real Ravenclaw? I get to see Ted again, and Sirius, and all my other friends who I couldn't write to because Mother started reading my mail after Sirius left. (she also intercepted a very sloppy letter Cissy - sorry, Cissa got from Wilkes, which serves everyone involved right) Plus, I'm a prefect - that's a bit scary, but mostly I'm happy about it. Ted is one as well, so we get to patrol together...

I'm awfully sorry about that, Meda. I really am. You know, if you... ever want to talk or anything I'll always be here for you, right? Yes, checked the schedule handed out at the feast. We've got first rounds first Wednesday of week one.

Thanks. Gah, scary. I hope there isn't any real trouble - might have to threaten certain people in advance...

You're welcome. I'm sure it'll be fine - too early in the year for anybody to cause any real damage.

You don't know the Maurauders like I do - they're plotting something already. I'm staying out of it, unless Severus is actually in danger of death.

*sighs* Well, looks like we have our work cut out for us then.

Shit, I'm sorry, Meda; I just couldn't stand it any more. Thanks for standing up for me, but they won't change their minds, you know that. My advice: get out. Believe it or not, it's worth the struggle. I'm sure you could find someone to stay with for a while. As soon as I can get the money I'm renting a flat in London and you're welcome there anytime. If I can do it, you certainly can.

Some part of me still thinks they could, if they bothered to think a bit more. I can stick it out a bit longer, if things don't get worse. As long as they don't try to marry me off...

I still can't believe she read that note. It was extremely private, as you know now, and nobody's business but mine.

At least she's happy with your choice of boyfriend. Consider yourself lucky there. But no, she shouldn't have read it - it isn't as if you were particularly likely to be communicating with or copying Sirus anyway.
