Tori would be lying if she said none of this was stolen. From her room in The Pack's apartment, yes, but still stolen. She'll pay Owen back eventually, though, since he paid for it all. He knows this.

She had been directed up here when she asked for Tori. The rest of her family was off doing other things in Diagon Alley, but she had wanted to meet more of her family, so she came here, since her parents were fine with it. She knocked on the door, a weird combination of nervous and excited.
Constanza could hear some shuffling behind the doors, and some sheets rustling, but then the door swings open and Tori appears. Her hair is pulled in a messy bun and she definitely looks better than she did after the attack, although she's still drained - in all aspects. "Lib, I swear, if you're here for las galletas, I'm gonna - wait," she squints, suddenly realizing this isn't Liberty. "...you aren't Liberty. Sorry. I'm out of it," she says, with a shake of her head. "But I also don't know you. New arrival?"
"Oh," she says. She looks thoroughly surprised, but pleasantly so. She knew she had more cousins than she'd met, she just didn't realize they were coming so soon, or that they were so close. "That's cool. I'm Tori," she says, with a smile, and shakes her hand.

She smiled. "It's nice to meet you. The rest of my family is out in Diagon Alley, but that seemed kind of boring to me so I figured I'd come see if I could meet you and here I am," she said with a grin, not fully aware that she was kind of rambling.
The girl's rambling isn't really much of a surprise; her own siblings had that tendency sometimes. She smiles, amused, and widens the door. "Do you want to come in, then? I don't think standing in the hallway is any fun."
"My family didn't want me, at first. Not really. A witch? A gay one, no less, that wound up becoming a werewolf, too. But mom and dad's divorce is about to be finalized and he'll be coming soon with two of my brothers and twin," she shrugs. "But the damage has been done. So, this is my home."
"Quidditch is the biggest thing there is," she says. "In the no-maj side there's soccer, drinking, shopping. Not... a lot, I suppose? Unless you... get the culture, I guess. There's a huge queer community, though. So related events do happen a lot, like Pride and stuff. But that's it, really."
"Huge. There's all kind of things. The forbidden forest houses a lot of creatures - both violent and domestic. There's ghosts, talking portraits, moving stairways... the stairways are annoying at first, and disorienting, but you'll get used to it after a while. And, of course, you'll have family to help you out," she says, with a small smile. She doesn't know Constanza well yet, but she's family, so she'll always be willing to extend a hand. "Quidditch is huge at Hogwarts, too, and there's a couple other clubs."
"Oh, right. Mountainous school," she frowns. She'd totally forgotten. But then... Constanza must have come across Isabella, Sergio and Andre at some point. "I mean... you'd need some way of getting there. Probably gillyweed? But I don't see why not."
"Can't tell you for sure. I've never been down there, just as in first year Herbology, but there was a limit. Werewolves don't really like being underwater," she says, amused by her cousin's amusement. "But deadly, probably. Just a guess."
She had a werewolf cousin? She'd not expected that. It seemed getting attacked by werewolves was a Torres thing, and a big one, at that. What were the odds - three in one family? "Since my first year," she says. "Winter break, the night of the Yule Ball. It was the Triwizard tournament that year, I remember," she pauses. "Your sister. How old is she?"

"I was in Pukwudgie at Ilvermorny. I don't know if... that helps you predict it or not." She sighed. "Yes. Mama and Papa believe in education. But I'll tell you-- sitting behind a desk when you've literally watched your parents go toe-to-toe with wild hippogriffs and study dragons and..." she sighed, happily basking in all those memories. "It just... doesn't compare."
"What? Oh, no, no! One of my best friends is a Hufflepuff, actually, but it's just - you seem like a Gryffindor. You've got the adventurous personality, you seem pretty courageous and all," she admits, and shrugs. "Guess I don't know you well enough."
"Hufflepuffs value kindness and hard work over everything else," she tries to explain. "They may be cunning, brave, smart or whatever, but at the end of the day, being kind and staying true is more important to them."
She shakes her head. Constanza apparently doesn't know anything about Hogwarts, which confuses Tori. She expected her to have at least read a thing or two about the school. "That's not a thing in Hogwarts. A hat sorts you into your house, based on what he finds within your mind."
