Sloane and Vera Rissanna
I'm hoping so. [Tag: Irritating Pureblood Parents?]
Fri Jul 16, 2010 5:12pm

Sloane walked solemnly behind her mother. It was useless to protest. Mother had been going on for nearly a year now about how she hadn't yet really connected to other parents of kids Sloane's age in the Wizarding world, but Sloane knew perfectly well that Vera was merely looking for Sloane's future husband. The Pureblood wizards still did things the old-fashioned way, betrothals and engagements from birth.

She had no argument her mother would listen to, especially with her father long gone. And Vera had, in the past three years, decided that it was her moral duty to take Wizarding socializing by storm.

Sloane, naturally, was unimpressed, even embarrassed.

She and Emma had talked about it. Vera wanted to set Sloane up with either Damon Clay or Dominic Moonbeam, the two most prominent Pureblood boys in their school. Vera, of course, had a number of potential international suitors, but Sloane wasn't about to interfere. It was useless, anyway, and would only make the entire ordeal more painful. The only thing she knew for sure was that the moment her mother decided who she would marry, she would have to figure out how to act around him. They'd have to do dances together at formals, probably, but that was likely all. The greatest problem with being from a wealthy, Pureblood family was that everyone in it was constantly scheming to increase their wealth and blood purity.

Therefore, Sloane stayed quietly behind her mother as Vera quickly found Cyan Clay, alongside another family and Damon himself. Vera - of course - knew Cyan right away, and kissed the woman on both cheeks, glowing. "Lovely to see you, Cyan, though why our children are here . . ."
