He could tell from her face and her voice that he had mixed up her thoughts. He had obviously derailed her from her conversation. Her voice, which had sounded so determined before was shaking. That wasn't Parker's intent, he merely meant to show that he understood what Cleo was saying, and the words had simply come out.

Parker paused after Cleo's question trying to think about how to turn the conversation back around to what she was saying before he'd interrupted her. But his pause wasn't obviously the best description of what had happened to JJ.

"Umm... I came here to Sonora, and John Jr got sent to military school. It's I think like Sonora in that it's not at home, but different in that you learn non-magical things.

        “But is he still at home in the holidays? Are you… are you safe from him?” she pressed. She had enough contact with the Muggle world to understand what military school meant, more or less. Being... more

          As Parker let go of Cleo, even though hugging her had made him feel better, he saw how stiff and tense she looked. He didn't know if he had done something wrong, and upon seeing her, had immediately... more

            What Parker said was, for the most part, comfortingly sensible. He wasn’t coming out with trite cliches, or trying to tell her there was nothing wrong her. He got the problem. He acknowledged that... more
