The Hogwarts kitchens are located directly under the Great Hall, down the same staircase that leads to the Hufflepuff Common Room. It contains four long tables identical to, and directly below, those in the Great Hall; food must simply be placed upon the tables in the kitchens, and it magically appears on the corresponding tables in the Great Hall above. The kitchens are staffed by over one hundred house-elves. Helga Hufflepuff brought the house-elves to work in the kitchens, as a way of ensuring they could work without being abused. To gain access to the kitchens, one must tickle the pear painted in a portrait of a bowl of fruit (it squirms and giggles), which then turns into a green doorknob.

She had been trying to read the French to English dictionary that she bought before leaving for England, even though she could barely read French, to try and help but to no avail, Genesis could barely get the hang of some simple English words so she gave up and headed out of the Common room to do something else. She had been hearing older students talking about how to get in the Kitchen, so she tried for herself, which took longer than she wanted.
Another student had shown her the way through to the Kitchen, so the two had eaten some oranges over a small conversation about what they thought of the school so far. When they left, she wasn't necessarily disappointed to be alone, but she was starting to get antsy and had headed for the door to leave.
Constance grimaced and turned away. "Why? I did not ask for you to show up!" she called in English, because she had studied a while ago and had started to build up her familiarity with the second language some time ago. The Slytherin knew fully well that her Hufflepuff triplet wouldn't understand. "Who is making me stay?" she asked in French.

She didn't understand everything Constance said in English but she got the general idea. "I just come." Genesis said in English, not knowing she confused can with come. "I am. We don't spend much time together now and I wanted sister time alone. If you weren't here, I would have just got food and went but now you're here." Genesis, said switching to French.
Constance knew of the mistake Genesis had made, but didn't feel like it was the right moment to say. "Exactly. What would you have done if I were not here?" she asked in French, putting her hands to her hips and leaning forward with sass. "Where would you have found me?"
