She'd point at it, starting to follow them back towards the house. "See."

Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:24, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd come out with a puzzled look on her face, looking for Charity.


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:25, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She was out here watching Aria and Jonathan play in the leaves.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:28, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd move over to Charity, her voice quiet. "Hey...has Jewel been acting...strangely lately?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:30, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She frowned, confused by Melinda's... apparent secrecy. "No..."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:35, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd sit down near Charity. "Ok. I was just trying to ask her some questions about house elves and she...stone walled me and started acting a bit...strange."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:36, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

"Strange how?" she asked frowning.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:38, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "She...refused to answer, and kept making excuses to leave. Finally she just said she wouldn't talk to me and appirated away."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:39, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "I don't know much about House Elves... or Jewel really. She's been in Ash's family for ages... maybe ask him if this is... strange behavior?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:42, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "Ok. I mean...I know House Elves have to...protect their family secrets and all but...I've lived here most of my life now, and I guess I just assumed...she wouldn't mind talking about herself or House Elves in general."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:43, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "Maybe now that you're an adult...?" she mused. "I mean... you aren't a Prince."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:44, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown. "True...but I'm Ash's Sister-In-Law...and Willa's too for that matter. That makes me family."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:46, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "I'm... not sure how much that matters."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:50, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown. "You mean...only blood relations would actually matter to their...ideas of servitude."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:51, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "It... might seem that way. If you need... I can maybe ask the questions for you?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:54, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "No...if what you say is right then you're in the same boat I am...and I'm really not trying to pry or cause problems. I was just curious."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:55, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She furrowed her brow. "But I am a Prince, honey."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:57, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd raise an eyebrow. "By marriage...but if like you said it's blood that matters...then the kids would have more...status or whatever in Jewel's eyes." She'd shrug, nodding her head to the playing kids. "...but I don't know that for sure. It's one of the things I wanted to ask."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:58, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

"Maybe you could get Willa to talk to her?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:00, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd consider that. "Yeah...maybe."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:01, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She smiled, happy to have even helped just a bit.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:02, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd consider, then ask Charity. "Have you ever heard Willa talk about Jewel or...Jewel helping her with anything?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:04, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She considered that. "Any time I've heard her say anything about Jewel... it was always with a tone of... great disdain."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:05, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. I suppose it can't hurt to ask but...she may not want to help." She'd pause, her voice thoughtful. "I wonder why they don't get along."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:06, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "I guess I just assumed it was because Jewel tries to help... and Willa doesn't like being helped."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:08, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...that makes a lot of sense." She'd smile wryly. "Sort of like you in that way."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:12, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She gave a tight little smile, not sure how to respond.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:14, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd chuckle. "I just mean you probably take more work from Jewel than she'd like as you also don't like being helped."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:15, February 16, 2017 (UTC)~

She frowned. "That's... not why I do that," she said. "I just.... I do it because I've always done it."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:17, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd look amused. "Ok...but you've inherited a house elf who would love the work, and it would let you do other things like spend more time with your kids or husband so...why do you still do it?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:21, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "Because it's how Mum ran her household-- doing the chores and taking care of everyone."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:25, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod, choosing her words carefully. "Yes...but it seems that...just because Mom and Dad did things one way that we don't necessarily have to do the same..." She'd pause, genuinely curious. "So...do you keep doing it that way because you like it that way or...just haven't thought about it or...what?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:28, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

"I like keeping busy," she said slowly. "I don't like to just... sit around all day. I think it's important not to be... so reliant on a House Elf. I mean... the things she does for us are basic life skills that everyone should know, and I want my kids to grow up learning them. How to cook a meal... how to do your laundry... these are all basic things you need out in the real world. And just because I have a House Elf now... I don't want to set an example of laziness to my children."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:30, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd listen closely, nodding, then pause to think. "Ok...then why do you still have Jewel?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:31, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "Because she's belonged to Ash's family for a long time. I let her do things from time-to-time, like cook. But I still try to do laundry and clean occasionally. It's... not really my place to let her go, and I know that... most elves don't take to being dismissed very well."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:34, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod, again being careful. "...but if she's unhappy with the amount of work...and you don't want her here...then maybe it would be better?" She'd shrug. "I mean you don't want her just...being unhappy and hoping for you to die so she can do laundry right?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:35, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She shrugged. "It's not my decision, Melinda. It's Ash's."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:45, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod, then fall silent.


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:46, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

"Did Jewel say something to you...? I thought you said she just... stone-walled..."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:49, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown slightly. "You mean about the amount of work...? Not really. In passing she said it was bad enough you took her chores...but like I said it wasn't a direct comment or anything."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:51, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She frowned. She knew she'd... butted heads with Jewel about it before, but not that it would've... had that sort of effect on the elf. "I'll talk to Ash."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:56, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Ok...I didn't mean to cause trouble...I was just curious about house elves."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:57, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

"I'd hate to think she... resents me." She sighed. "I've... had enough of that over the course of my life..."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:03, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
That made her feel a little bad. "Hey...you were trying your best to raise your siblings. That can't be easy."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 19:04, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She chuckled. "I was. And it wasn't..." She looked over to Aria and Jonathan. "And I'm... sort of banking on the fact that at some point, they probably will too."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:06, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd give a half smile. "Well...I don't think either of them could be worse than I was so...you should be golden."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 20:42, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

"You were a good kid growing up..." she said, wistfully, looking over at Aria, wondering what sort of things would influence her growing up.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 20:45, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd let out a snort of laughter at that. "Yeah...I certainly wasn't a huge selfish pain in everyone's behind."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 20:46, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She looked at her sister with a gentle smile. "I mean when you were little... before Mum and Dad died."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 20:50, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd think about that, then shake her head. "No...no I really wasn't then either. I just hid it better behind an innocent façade...and I tried harder to be what you and Mom wanted...at least while you were watching."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 20:52, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

She nodded, not really enjoying that answer, but she didn't say anything.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 20:53, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "I didn't...suddenly change when I went to Hogwarts just...stopped pretending." She'd pause. "...which is why I doubt Aria or Jonathan will give you as much trouble as I did. Neither seems nearly as much trouble as I was at their age. They're both pretty easy going...like you and Ash."
