She'd frown, her voice still gentle. "I'm no Charity...and I won't tell you what you're doing wrong. Just here to listen if you need someone. I mean...it's not like the rest of our family are especially good listeners."

He rolled his eyes. "Have fun with the parlor all to yourself like you clearly wanted in the first place," he said as he left the room, headed for his bedroom.

She'd be sitting on one of the chairs, sketching in her sketchbook. She was used to being up before everyone else.

OOC:I just had a thought. We could turn this into a Melinda/someone RP before everyone else is up.

Naturally, he was up not too long afterwards, for he was normally waking up early to do a quick run around Diagon Alley before heading into work to open up the Apothecary. After getting some coffee, he was moving into the parlor and plopping down into one of the couches, "Merry Christmas, Melinda," he said upon noticing his younger sister.

She'd look up and smile at him. "Merry Christmas Mark." She'd look curious. "You've never been an early riser before...something change that?"

"Oh..." She wasn't sure how to respond to that. She'd sit up, closing her sketchbook. "So...we don't really talk much anymore...how are things?"

She'd nod. That was alright. "Well, still got another year to go, so school's kind of boring. I...have a guy I'm going out with who's pretty nice." She'd smile and blush a little. "Still no clue what to do when I graduate so...overall really not much to report."

Mark looked over at Melinda, raising his eyebrows, "I'm..?" he asked, "And, I'm happy. I'm just not one to be super excited over a relationship. It's not something my life is completely focused on right now."

She'd frown a little. "Oh..." She'd consider that. Apparently this relationship wasn't that serious. "So...what would you say your life is focused on right now then?"

She passed out her presents to everyone. She'd gotten nice ties for Mark and Thomas, a bracelet for Melinda, another book for Aria, and a potted plant for Ash and Charity. "I'm sure you two have a ton of plants already... but I honestly didn't know what else to get you..."

He'd smile. "I appreciate it Faith. I'll put it in my Office at the school." Ash and Charity had gotten Mark and Thomas advanced potion making books and tickets to the World Cup. "I'm getting a box again, so those will get you and a guest in." Faith had gotten a set of original Narnia books signed by C.S. Lewis.

OOC:If Faith has those (I can't remember) we can swap them out. I'll let Charity pick out Melinda's since I have no clue what they'd get her...or what she'd want.

She watched Melinda open the gifts from her and Ash. Charity hadn't wanted to get any clothing items, and instead had gotten her a few accessory pieces-- a couple of fun scarves, a statement necklace, and some boots.

OOC: I know Faith has The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I don't think she has the whole series.

Mark bit his lip, knowing he wasn't very good at giving gifts. Charity would get a necklace with a decently sized aquamarine gem. Aria got a book of muggle fairy tales (a pretty big one at that and it was mostly for Charity or Ash to read to her). Thomas got a couple of cuff links. Faith got a small flower pot (he didn't know what books she did or did not have, so she just went with this). Melinda then got a few different nail polishes, thanks to Charity's guidance because...he knew just about nothing about teen girls.

She'd gotten Charity some maternity shirts with phrases like I caught my snitch and My baby's a Hogwarts baby on them. For Ash she'd gotten some new pairs of nice working gloves for the gardens. For Thomas she'd gotten a pair of Omnioculars. For Faith a book on Fairy Tales from around the world. For Mark she'd gotten some nice dress shirts for his adult job. For Aria she'd gotten some squishy books with letters and colors and magical animals.

He passed his out last. He'd gotten Ash and Charity some gender-neutral baby blankets, he'd gotten Mark a new set of scales-- silver. He'd gotten Faith a set of Slytherin bookmarks. "I figured you already had a lot of books," he said to her with a little smile. Thomas had seriously considered getting Melinda a Muggle nun outfit... but that didn't seem to send the right message, and besides it was Christmas. So he'd picked her up a small unicorn pendant, with Melinda's birthstone at the tip of the horn.

He'd give a yawn, coming in holding two steaming mugs, and set one near Charity for when she got the chance. He'd glance at Charity. "...I think that might be a losing fight with a three year old. It'll be a while before anyone else gets here, assuming they don't get up until a decent time.
