She was sitting in the Parlor alone... Ash had taken Aria out for a father-daughter excursion of some kind, and Jonathan was down for a nap. So she was here sipping a cup of tea.

Mark had sent an owl about a hour and a half earlier to Charity, regarding the idea of him coming over to the Prince Castle to meet with her. It hadn't come back, but the old bird was becoming slow. It wasn't clear if it had reached her or not, but he had decided to show up anyways. He hadn't wanted to barge in, so there had been a simple yet firm knock and Jewel had let him in. Once he found his sister, he tried his best not to spook her, "Hey, Charity." The Hufflepuff alumnus remained in the doorway of the parlor, keeping his distance.

Mark still wasn't comfortable with Jewel serving him, so he shook his head and sat down. "I'm fine. I can always get the tea for myself later," he said with a small smile. "Are the kids napping?" he asked, since it was quite quiet.

It occurred to her that Melinda wouldn't really like being spoken about.... but this was family, and Charity figured that was okay. "She's good. She got a job with the Creatures Department at the Ministry. She's doing some kind of research with them, where she goes out on trips for a week or two at a time. She's still living here.... she helps out with the kids." She shrugged. "I think she still sees her friend Mal from time to time."

OOC: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Charity knows about Mark and Mal?

"I knew about the job, but I didn't know she was still living here and helping out with the kids," he said, nodding. "I mean, Mallory hasn't really mentioned Melinda that much, but I would assume they're still talking." Mark hadn't thought too much about it, because it seemed that everybody already knew without him announcing it.

OOC: We can say that Charity doesn't know. :)

It was hard to keep the shock off her face... though it was Mark, and he wasn't always the most forthcoming of her siblings.... so maybe she shouldn't be. But the look was still there. "Uh... no, I had no idea," she said. "Congratulations... I suppose."

He winced, obviously feeling bad, for perhaps the first time when it came to hiding cr*p from his siblings. "I'm sorry, Charity. I swore I told you. I know that Thomas and Melinda know...and I don't really ever talk to Faith anymore, so Merlin knows if she does, but."

"You try harder than some of your siblings," she said with a gentle smile before a look of realization came over her face. "Oh! I know your birthday is soon, and that you wouldn't want to make a big deal of it... but I did get you something." She flicked her wand and a small black box, with yellow ribbon came floating into the room, and Charity passed it over to Mark.

When Mark opened the box, he'd find a scribbled drawing of himself made by Aria, a couple of vouchers for high-end restaurants from Ash and Charity, and a new watch.

"Like who? Faith?" he asked, resting back in the chair. "Oh. Charity, you know you didn't have to." When he opened it, he was pleased enough with the picture from Aria, because that was enough for him. However, the other items were pretty sweet to. "Aw, thank you and tell Aria that I think it's amazing once she gets back," he said, getting up and moving to her seat to hug her.

Mark was willing to assume. Faith was always talking about how she was an independent and strong young woman, so he figured she could handle it if something was up. "I bet everything is fine. It's Faith that we're talking about."

It did upset him that whatever small bond him and Faith had created in that short time frame had disappeared completely, but he supposed it was normal.
