~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She was seated on the couch, her head in her hands as she stared at the torn up bits of paper that had flooded to the ground. The letter had accomplished nothing... but it gave her reason to be really worried about Elizabeth. She felt guilty... Jacques was right. She let out a long sigh and rubbed her temple, trying to scramble her thoughts together.

She knocked softly on the door and opened up door. "Mary?" she asked gently.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She looked up. She hadn't been crying, but she looked visibly upset. "Look at this," she said, indicating the strips of paper on the floor. "I got my letter back- torn to pieces! As well as this. It's in my father's handwriting." She held up a bigger strip of paper that simply read, "Nice try."

"Letter to who?" she asked coming in and looking at the pieces of the letter.

"My letter to Elizabeth," she said with a small sigh. "Clearly my father intercepted it."

She frowned. "Why would that have happened? How could he be controlling her mail like that? Does she live with your parents?"

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She shrugged. "Probably." She let out another sigh. "Great... both sisters are now inaccessible. One for reasons I don't know... and the other because of my crazy father." She looked worried. "I hope Elizabeth is okay...."

She frowned slightly, and sat down next to Mary. "Do you have any reason to believe she's unsafe?"

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"Besides all this?" She indicated the mess of paper. "Why did my father choose to respond like this, instead of not responding at all. It... feels taunting."

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:51, September 2, 2015 (UTC)~

She nodded slowly. "You would know your father best." She paused. "Is there any way to get in contact with your sister? Perhaps send the Aurors? Or a Patronus? Or have me contact her?"

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"I don't even have an address, and I don't know for sure that they're in Poland. I have friends with the Polish Aurors I could contact... but I don't know if they'll find anything."

"You don't need an address for a Patronus," she pointed out. "And that would go straight to Elizabeth."

"I can try," she said with a bit of doubt in her voice, but already pulling out her wand.
Hope Black

"Mary, have you been unable to produce a Patronus since your sister left?"

"Well... maybe see if you can get one then, before trying to create one that talks...?"

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She pointed her wand, but struggled to think of a happy memory- most of them were laced with pain. She murmured the incantation, and a fine mist emerged from the one. She shook herself, tried again, and a slightly stronger mist emerged. The third time, nothing happened at all.

"Sweetie, try to find something positive," she murmured. "What about your successes in Poland?"

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded and focused on when they found the cure, trying again. This time, a shield-like shape formed, but it still wasn't anywhere near a corporeal Patronus.

"That's better," she said encouragingly.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She tried to strengthen the Patronus, but it had reached its limit. Those particular memories were wrapped more in relief than in pure joy.

"Try a different memory," she said softly. "What about something with Rose?"



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded, focusing on teaching Rose to play the piano, and tried again. This shield was strange- it was almost wobbly, and after a second or two, it disappeared.

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

"Really just focus on her as a niece," she said. "No connection to her Mum. Just a happy memory with her as a niece."



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She tried again, focusing on taking Rose around the park. This shield was just as wobbly, but it lasted longer. With her second attempt, it was even more wobbly again as the second half of the memory started taking over the first, and the shield vanished again. She rubbed her temple, looking pained.

"It's a good start," she said, gently rubbing Mary's back.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She let out a long sigh and buried her face in her hands, hiding the tears in her eyes. This was sufficient proof that most, if not all, of her memories had been corrupted with pain.

"Mary, there is still happiness within you," she said firmly. "If there wasn't, you wouldn't still be here. And nothing would've come from those attempts."

"What if there's no pure joy left?" she said from behind her hands, voice thick with tears. "What if everything is laced with pain?"

"It's not Mary," she said. "If it was, you wouldn't have been able to come up with any wisps at all."

She bit her lip and nodded, letting out a small sob as she tried to stop crying. Focus on Elizabeth, and what you can do to help her.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
Eventually she let out a shuddering breath and lifted her head, face wet with tears. "So... sending Elizabeth a Patronus isn't an option," she murmured.
Hope Black

"Not right now," she said gently.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She shoved her doubts aside. "It looks like I could contact Frederick or Alex and ask them to investigate... or I could go searching myself."
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:43, September 2, 2015 (UTC)~

"Is searching yourself a safe option, Mary?"

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"I don't know," she murmured. "I could let Frederick and Alex know what's going on as a start. Then if I go myself, they could be in the vicinity to assist if needed, and if something happened, they could get on it right away."

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 14:01, September 2, 2015 (UTC)~~

"Mary, why are you so certain your family is in Poland? Did you see them while you were there for the Polish case you were helping with? I thought they lived here...?"



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"They technically have their permanent residence here, but they're so rarely there- as far as I'm aware, they haven't set foot in Britain since I told them about Benjamin. They travel all the time. Half the time they're in Poland, the other half in other random countries."
Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 14:54, September 2, 2015 (UTC)~

She let out a slow breath. "Mary, that was over a year ago...."



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"I'll start with the Polish Aurors... see what they can find, and go from there." For a moment she wondered if she should ask Renee to do the same in Britain, but quickly dismissed the idea.

"If starting in Poland is what you think is best..." she said with a shrug.



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded. Even if they were actually in Britain for some reason... she didn't want to think about what those reasons may be. So until it was concluded that her family wasn't in Poland, she was going to put it out of her mind. Her eyes were narrowed in thought.

"Part of me wants to go to Renee and ask her to do the same thing in Britain too... except that it's Renee. And my other option of someone to go to is even worse."

"You could go see Jacques? Or another Auror?"

"It's a start." An idea came to her- another that she pushed from her mind for now. She couldn't afford more false hope. "Do you want to go out and grab some lunch?"
Hope Black
