Regan would wake up in a soft fluffy bed. She'd notice she was warm and felt the weight of a couple thick blankets on her. It would be a world's difference from any feeling she'd had recently. She'd look around and find herself in her childhood bedroom on her old bed.

She woke up and recognized the room. She'd slept better than she had in several months... but couldn't remember how she'd gotten here. "Mum?" She called out quietly. Something told her to keep... under the radar. "Dad?"

She'd crack open the door looking confused. Her eyes would widen when she say Regan. "Regan...what are you doing here?"

She felt instant tears spring to her eyes when she saw her sister. "Oh my god, Rose!" She stood up from the bed and ran to Rose, throwing her arms around her, pulling her sister in for a tight hug.

She'd numbly hug Regan back, then pull away glancing around. "Regan what are you doing here? You're supposed to be in prison?" She'd frown slightly. "Did they...let you go?"

 – 17:20, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

Regan pulled away from her sister, a nervous look on her face. She chewed on her lip and shook her head slightly. "No? I feel like I'd remember that. I... woke up here at home. So I'm not sure what happened."



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 17:22, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd glance down at her sister. "Well you're still wearing an Azkaban prisoner jumpsuit." She'd shake her head quickly processing. "We need to get you changed and...hidden somewhere. Do you have any clothes still here at Mom and Dad's?"


Regan post Hogwarts

 – 17:24, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

"Uhmm..." She turned and crossed over to one of the chest of drawers and pulled out an old tshirt and pair of jeans. "Some."

Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder

"Get changed...we'll go to my house and figure things out." She'd turn her back.


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna

 – 17:28, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She stripped herself out of the jumpsuit and changed. She hadn't needed the privacy... but it felt nice to be respected. "You don't think it's safe for me to hide out here?" She asked when she was done getting changed.



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 17:30, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd respond still facing the door. "I think the first place they'll look for you is here. I mean it had to be Dad that got you out right?"


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 17:38, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She shrugged. "Maybe. Is he here? Why would he drop me and just... leave? Oh, you can turn around."



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 17:42, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd turn around. "No it's just me. I still think they'd search here shortly after your own house. Even my house might not be a good idea given what I've been researching..." She'd frown trying to figure out where they could go.


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 17:45, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She was dying to ask, but now wasn't the time. "Maybe Dad has an idea?" She suggested. "If he's the one who brought me here... maybe he figured I'd sleep longer than I did or something."



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 17:50, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "He hasn't been here in about a week now...and I've been here all night and he didn't come in. Mom and Dad are both at work right now...and we can't exactly go to the Ministry or Hospital to talk to them."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 17:52, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

"He hasn't been here in a week? Where'd he go?" She shook her head. Not important. "The only place I can think of to hide isn't even in this country. And... I don't have a wand or anything, so I can't get myself there."



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 17:54, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd bend down and pick up the wand that had fallen out of the jumpsuit pocket and offer it to Regan. "Well here's your wand...so that's one thing." She'd pause. "Do you really think you need to leave the country? I mean...we might be able to find somewhere for you to hide? Could any of the people you were rioting with hide you?"


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 17:57, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She blinked. She'd been smuggled out... but that person got her wand? "Everyone at the riot got arrested, I think," she said, chewing on her lip. "I have an Auror friend, but I don't want to put her in a compromising situation. I don't think I need to leave the country... but staying with Rex was the first thing that came to mind if hiding here or your place isn't safe."



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:02, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
"Oh." She'd hadn't thought about Rex. "Maybe...let's see if we can contact Dad or Mom and...figure something out?" She'd pause. "We could wait for Mom to come home..." She'd trail off worried aurors might burst down the door any moment. "Or...my place? I have some security stuff so we could see someone coming? this house has more wards and protective spells though..."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:06, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She considered those options. "Let's stay here. Mum and Dad coming home to their own house looks less fishy." She looked down at the jumpsuit. She fingered her wand for a moment before Vanishing the clothes. Less evidence.



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:09, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "Dad won't be coming home unless we get him a message...let me go send him a patronus." She'd turn and leave coming back a few minutes later...longer than Regan thought it should have taken. "Ok...hopefully he'll get it and come."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:10, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

While Rose was gone, she'd settled back on the bed. She smiled when Rose came back. "So... why has Dad been gone?"



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:13, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd sigh and sit down on her own old bed looking at Regan. "Mom and Dad got into a big fight about what to do about you being in Azkaban over a week ago. Mom was packing up to leave and Dad said he'd go and hasn't come back. I think he's waiting for Mom to tell him it's ok to come back...but she's still angry I think. Scared actually...but a little angry too."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:16, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She blinked. "Wow..." She let out a slow breath, and curled her legs up to her chest. She rested her head on her knees. "I..." It's your fault your parents split up. You rioted. You ended up in jail. And them fighting about what to do ultimately split them up. Way to go, Regan. The inner monologue was easy. Tears began streaming down her face.



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:22, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "Mom...sort of went nuts honestly. She yelled and screamed at Dad for saying you were safe enough in Azkaban and that if we left things alone you'd be out soon enough. After he left she broke down about how everyone has always left her and...she couldn't lose you too. She asked me to try to figure out a way to break you out which I've been doing but since they're REALLY oldschool on technology I haven't made much progress. I've been mostly staying here with Mom since she's seemed...sort of on the edge of going crazy. She's been completely sick worrying about you...I have no idea how she's been holding things together at work. Dad's been...not around but I'm sure he's been worried too...as much about Mom and everything else as you."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna

 – 18:25, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

Tears continued to flow down her cheeks. "I'm so sorry, Rose," she whispered, her voice barely audible.



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:26, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd move over onto Regan's bed and wrap her arouns around Regan. "Hey...it's ok. It's not your fault."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:31, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She leaned into her sister, child-like... craving the embrace. She hadn't been... embraced by anyone since before the riot. Not fully, without bars or something in the way. She also began to realize, as the tears failed to stop, that she hadn't cried at all in Azkaban. A bit in the Holding Cells... but not nearly enough to where her mind and body had properly processed all the things that had happened to her.



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:34, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd take in a deep breath and bite her lower lip. She hadn't...really considered what Regan had bene through and while she needed to know what going on she shouldn't have dropped it all at once like that. She'd hold her sobbing sister tight letting her cry...because she needed to. She wished she could help more...but this was all she could really do and for now it would have to be enough. She'd never seen Regan like this...she was usually so tough. It almost broke her heart.


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:38, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

It was a long cry... but a good one. One that she needed. As the tears slowed, Regan took a few shaky breaths in and out. She thought back through everything Rose had been saying. "S-something doesnt m-make sense." She said. "If... D-Dad didn't know I was h-here... who got me out?"



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:40, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "Dad might have...I just sent him a message to come home ASAP. If it wasn't him...I don't know? Mom was going to talk to Uncle Karith since he works with the Minister but I don't think he would have done it if Dad wouldn't." She'd pause, figuring Regan might need to talk...it might help. "So what was it like in there?"


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:43, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

Her expression went stony... almost numb. "It's... awful. There aren't dementors anymore, but... that means we're only left with our thoughts. It's cold and damp and... there's no sunlight. So you... eat when they feed you and sleep and wake when your body tells you to. Not that it's good sleep. But there's no real way to tell the passing of time."



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:45, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly gently stroking Regan's hair gently trying to just give her some physical touch. That had always been Regan's love language so...hopefully it would help. She'd sit and listen letting Regan talk.


Regan post Hogwarts

 – 18:49, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

"Anyone in there could go crazy without someone to talk to. Guards just sneer. Boredom is the worst. There's nothing to do but sit and stare at the walls. Maybe if you're lucky, you can talk to... a cellmate, or someone across from you. But most everyone just... sort of... lives within themselves. It's... lonely. And dark." Her voice shook. "And Dad thought I was safe there?"



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:51, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd give a small shrug. "I think he meant...physically. Like...nobody was going to just up and execute you which I think he...thought might be an issue here?"


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:54, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded. "He did mention that if that were to come up... that he'd have come to get me."



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 18:57, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I'm sure he would have...but he's also sort of stuck since he's trying to stay close to the Minister and derail things there the best he can and work with the new Ministry to get things going and to have a smooth transition...so him doing anything out in the open or illegal like that might hinder that transition and make things harder or take longer."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 18:58, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded, a troubled look crossing her face. "You don't think he'll... turn me in, do you?"



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 19:01, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "Absolutely not. I think he was trying to figure out a way to get you out anyway." She'd pause. "You're more important to him than the Ministry Regan. I think he was...really torn about you staying there longer to...help things out here. Maybe...just crushed by indecision."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 19:04, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded, her body showing visible signs of relief. "Indecision that... tore him apart from Mum..." She looked up at her sister. "Did you send her a Patronus, too? Or did you think that was too risky?"



Rose Age 16-17
Rose Grace Black - WizCo Coder
Send Me an Owl! - 19:07, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "I didn't. I figured she'd come home after work anyway and..." She'd frown looking a little exasperated and a little embarrassed. "Honestly I could barely manage the one. Sorry."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 19:19, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

"Thank you," she said nodding. She rose from the bed. Rose would be able to see her sister was much thinner than when she'd seen her last. She gave her sister an appreciative smile and then head for the bathroom.



Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 19:21, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
When Regan was done and dressed she'd come out to hear Rose and her Dad talking in quiet voices downstairs. She smell of tomato soup and grilled cheese would waft up the stairs.


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna

 – 19:23, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She'd showered for what felt like the better part of an hour, and still hadn't felt really clean. She redressed and came down the stairs tentatively. The smell of real food was making her salivate from the stairs. She stepped into the kitchen with an apprehensive smile.

She'd set out food on the table, giving Regan a double portion. She'd definitely noticed how skinny Regan looked. "So I've been filling him in on everything and we think we have a place you can stay."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 19:35, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She started in on the food, trying with difficulty to eat it slowly, so she could actually absorb it all. "Where?" She asked between bites.



Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 19:38, June 24, 2019 (UTC)
"My parent's old mansion. It's one of the old pureblood estates with all the ancient protections, charms, and wards on it. The Ministry couldn't find you there unless they were literally invited in the front door and nobody has lived there for years. I don't think many people even know or remember about it honestly." He'd pause. "In fact it could be used as a safe house of sorts for anyone you know looking to work against the current Minister."


Regan post Hogwarts

 – 19:40, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded. "Sounds perfect."

He'd nod. "Once you're done eating I'll show you how to appirate in and show you around. If you want or need anything from the House grab it and we'll take it with us."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 21:53, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded. As it was, she was already half done with the food in front of her. So much for eating slowly. "Will you all be able to come and visit me?"



Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 12:17, June 25, 2019 (UTC)
He'd nod slowly. "Yes...but doing it too much might be risky. I think it would probably be safest if Rose visited you the most...I think your Mom and I will probably be under suspicion for a while once you're found missing."


Regan post Hogwarts

Regan Black Ravenclaw Alumna
-Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist

 – 15:39, June 25, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded as she finished eating. "Will I be able to see her before I go?" She looked between her Dad and sister. "Rose said she didn't send Mum a Patronus... and I don't know when she's supposed to be home."



Ferlin
Ferlen - Alistair Fitzgerald's Senior Undersecretary
Send Me an Owl! - 15:44, June 25, 2019 (UTC)
He'd glance at Rose. "I mean...if you want to? The Ministry doesn't know you've escaped yet...and my guess would be when they find out they'll look for you...but not very hard. They have other more important things to do and the Auror Head is a friend. I don't know when Hope will be home either...but you can probably wait." He'd stand. "In fact I should probably get back. Rose and I went over while you showered so she can show you how to get there."

OOC: Since you're doing Hope I figured you'd bring her in when you wanted.

She'd shake her head and bite her own sandwich. "I don't think so...we'll wait for Mom then go over to the Manor and take a look around. Dad showed me where it is and everything but we didn't go inside so you and I can go explore."

She'd smile and give them a few minutes moving to the stove to fix Regan another sandwich and then starting to pack some food up to take with them...where they were going probably didn't have any.
