She'd turn and offer it to Ash again, looking at him and clearly expecting a different answer. "Open?"


Ash Coryn

Send Me an Owl! - 16:40, November 21, 2016 (UTC)
He'd shake his head, taking this one too. "We have to wait for everyone Aria." He'd look at Charity as Aria headed towards the tree yet again. "She seems to be seeing if we'll both give the same answer."

The game would continue for over an hour until ever present was piled around Ash. Others would probably start arriving soon.

He knew Ash was wealthy... but Jesus Christ, this house was huge. Faith directed him to the parlor, where he walked in his armful of presents. Hopefully they hadn't missed anyone... "Morning everybody."

He shook Ash's hand best as he could before putting the presents from him and Faith under the tree and standing next to Faith. He still wasn't entirely comforterable here... it wasn't that he didn't enjoy socializing, he had just never had a family gathering be this large before

"Alright, I'll go first." He distributed his gifts. A couple of new baby toys for Jonathan (that he gave to Ash and Charity), a few bookmarks for Faith, since he'd lost track of what she had, or didn't have. He got a nice Ravenclaw tie for Dakota, and a set of earrings for Elle that, had golden yellow gemstones.

He'd gotten Faith and Dakota's presents, and let Charity get Elle and Thomas'. For Faith, another classic first edition, this time both Animal Farm and Fahrenheit 451. For Dakota he'd gotten him some books on being married, with titles like How to charm your marriage

He chuckled when he received Ash's presents. "These should be rather useful," he says and thanked both Elle and Thomas. He and Faith had shopped for their gifts together but he let her kind of let her take the lead since she knew them better

She'd gotten Elle a pair of heels she knew Elle had been pining over. She got Dakota a few nice quills, age-appropriate toys for Jonathan, and a few storybooks for Aria.

He'd look at Aria, surrounded by the pile of toys and books and colorful wrapping paper, and bows and ribbon from the presents, including the ones Mark and Melinda had sent her, and just sigh. "I think she's got enough toys to last her the next couple years."

She pulled out her wand. A swish and a flick... and some additional charming, and the wings of the stuffed animal flapped and it started to fly around the room.

"Shafiq came and asked me for approval. After picking his brain apart, only to make sure it wasn't some half-baked scheme, I gave it my seal of approval. I assume it's that, her Head Girl duties, and just seventh year that's keeping her at school. Possibly her boyfriend's issues as well... I haven't seen him in class since Thanksgiving."

He didn't feel like Jewel's presence needed defending. If Dakota had issue with it, then he could ask, or they could have a private talk about it. He'd make Aria a small plate of food, and go get her settled to start eating.
