Evelyn sighed as she spotted her parents from the back where she stood. They were milling about with all the other kids' parents, looking for something. Presumably her. Great. And they hadn't brought Tom either. She hadn't been expecting much, seeing as Tom was a Muggle, but she knew that the Muggle Studies teacher wasn't a witch, and anyway a few quiet words and a good memory charm afterwards ought to do the trick.

Oh well, Evelyn thought as her parents made their way towards Willow, Damon and a girl that looked a lot like Willow but with brown hair and quite a few feet taller. At least she'd have someone to talk to. Willow didn't look too happy with her lot either.

Evelyn made her way towards her parents very slowly and less than enthusiastically. When she reached them she said, "Hi," in a rather flat voice, before her mother swept her up into a bone-crushing hug and cried, "Oh darling, how have you been? Why have you stopped writing? We've been so worried!"

Evelyn frowned. "I haven't stopped writing," she said defiantly. "I wrote to you last month."

"Oh, but we wanted you to write every day!" Evelyn's mother said. She caught sight of Headmaster Grace, hand in hand with Jael and talking to someone's father. "Is that your headmaster?" she said sharply. "He doesn't look very -"

"Mum!" Evelyn blushed. Her mother was somewhat embarrassing in public situations. Evelyn looked at her dad, who hadn't said anything, but he smiled when he caught her eye. She smied back, feeling guilty about never having thanked him for the shoes. She wasn't likely to wear them again though.

"Erm, Mum, Dad, this is Willow. My friend," Evelyn said in a desperate attempt to stop her mother from going over and speaking to any of the teachers. She'd be so embarrassed. "And Willow's cousin. Damon."
