"Oh nobody in particular. " Caitlin replied. "At Orientation I talked to this boy named Beau. His mother's cousin is married to my aunt and he decided to come introduce himself. There wasn't anyone at the feast." She had yet to figure out who was okay to talk to. The first year didn't want to end up going down a bad path as some of her relatives had done or do anything in the least to cost her father and Winston the Pierce patriarchy. Beau, however, was obviously acceptable. He was pure, after all, and his mother was even a Brockert.

Of course, Crotalus was the best house to be in for this. Muggleborns and halfbloods weren't especially common because obviously, they didn't usually care about being respectable.

Mother and Melinda were models of pureblood respectability as were both her grandmothers though so she did at least have people that she looked up too. " The aunt I mentioned before has a daughter a few years younger than me but we're not that close." Aunt Harmony was only Mother's half-sister anyway so it wasn't as if they spent much time together.

    “Indeed,” Sylvia agreed, when Caitlin noted how the other Callahan boy being in their classes meant there was someone else who was worth getting to know. She hoped that meant that she, Sylvia,... more
