The Schmidt Home


SchmidtBH


Here reside Derrick and Emily Schmidt alongside three (Edmund, Boyce, Blake, and Sadie) of their eight (Aeron, Arthur, Lena, and Ansel) children. The other four are welcome to stay any time in their old rooms anytime as to escape the mayhem that is their life. The house is far from the closest town, allowing them to have a Quidditch Pitch; the house is located in front of their own private beach, where the family spends their time when not in Hogwarts (the kids) nor playing Quidditch (all of them).

She's standing in front of the infamous Schmidt house, tears welled up in her eyes. She's here to do one thing and one thing only - pull herself out of this endless torment. Being here, in the front yard... it brought a lot of memories. She remembered hating this house, from the bottom of her heart. She really hadn't wanted to be here, in England. Maybe if she'd tried harder... if she'd not let them come here, these deaths and disappearances wouldn't have happened. She'd have be able to have her family still. Have Audi. Though at the same time... this house held a lot of fond memories, she couldn't deny it. From playing quidditch with her brothers, to sunbathing with Lena and Sadie to doing nothing and everything with her parents. These memories flood her mind, and she takes a deep breath, trying to clear them. The only thing keeping her tears at bay, is the fact that she'll be joining her dead relatives... soon. With steeled nerves, Blake approaches the front door and unlocks it, to enter her childhood home.

Arthur wasn't totally sure why he was here. He had sworn off England since his mother died. Still, here he was, a strange something pulling him here. Art ran his hand through his hair, expecting the place to be empty.

She's there, sitting in the couch, eyes red-rimmed and her clothes hanging loosely from her body. She looks fragile there, easily broken. Which, to be fair, isn't very far from the truth, but she's found it in her to be strong enough to clean up the main house to a point where it's at least liveable. It's what she was doing all day, and now she was sitting in the couch, staring at the wall emptily. What's the next sitep now?

As soon as he walked in, he saw Blake. Admittedly, no he definitely wasn't expecting that. Still, he didn't say her name in surprise or anything, he just walked over and sat down next to her. "The house looks good."

She has a heart attack. There's just no other way to put it, with how loudly she shrieks and how high she jumps. Her heart rate spikes wildly, and she looks to her side, beyond surprised to see Arthur. "What the fuck," she gapes. First Ansel, now Arthur? What the hell? "What are you doing here?"

She stares at him, because that joke came too soon. For fuck's sake, she's just seen her dead brother not twenty-four hours before. And yet - here was Arthur, smiling, laughing, like everything was okay. She's... she'd missed this. "Oh my Gott," she whispers, lunging herself at him, arms wrapping tightly around his body.

She laughs through her tears, squeezing her eyes shut and just hugging him as closely and tightly as she can. She's a little taken aback at how he's not mentioned how bony she is, but personally, Blake is grateful. She doesn't want to deal with any of that, not right now. "I'm glad you're here," she whispers, into his neck.

She shrugs, a feeling of unease at the pit of her stomach. "I'm just not good enough. I never have been. Otherwise, why did everyone leave? You left, Edmund left, Boyce left, Aeron died, came back and left again. Ansel died. Mutter offed herself. It's just - I'm not good enough to make anyone stick around. Even my own son was taken from me - by grandmother. So I thought - why else should I be here?"

"He was here," she says, quietly. "I'm - I'm not crazy. He was here, as a ghost, but I - I was his unfinished business," she adds. Blake meets his gaze, without any other option, and he can see just how badly she's doing. Years of pain and self-hatred are bright in her eyes, firm and unwavering. "And yet I'm more liable to trust dead people than I am alive people."

"I can't afford another loss. I'm - I'm trying to get better. I have to get better. I-I told him I'd find my nieces, get my son back - I'd make sure the Schmidt Empire grew," her voice cracks, and so does her heart. "I can't afford losing someone else."

She cracks a watery smile, beginning to believe that maybe he would stay. For once. Maybe she would be okay - she'd have her happy ending.

"In the Ministry, probably," she nods slowly. She shifts a little, trying to gain a sense of comfort in her seat on the couch. She tries not to get hopeful, tries not to get ahead of herself, but it's so hard, because her own son - despite not being born out of love, so much as a show of strength - is the love of her life and she, despite everything, would hate to continue living in a world without him.

She's scared by the sudden intrusion, and it shows, because again the lets out a small, shrilly scream and jumps away. But it's just Rhian and - "Why does everyone like to scare me?" she asks, weakly. But she glances at Arthur and purses her lips, because should she tell Rhian?

She scoffs, shaking her head. Her Rhian... would not have shrugged off her feelings so easily. Discarded her, like she was a piece of crap. Blake's eyes fall shut because she just doesn't want to break down in front of this girl. "I lost my mom, my dad, both my sisters, all my brothers discounting one. I even lost my son, Rhian. I'm sorry - but there's not much to level out whatever pain you felt. You abandoned me, and you don't want to accept the consequences. You were like my sister for the longest time. I looked up to you. Dammit, Rhian, I loved you. And now..." she trails off, shaking her head disappointedly and disappearing into the kitchen. All traces of hunger she might have had - all orgers to get better as soon as she could - we beginning to dwindle, barely there to begin with. Right now, it was just her son that kept her here. Otherwise, she'd long since been gone.

"I'm not a little girl anymore," she whispers, but her voice cracks, and before she knows it, her feet are dragging her towards Rhian, arms slipping around her and her face burying in the crook of her neck. And then she just loses it, sobbing and crying for easily the millionth time this week. Just when she thinks she's cried out all the tears she's got to offer, she surprises herself. "I just miss them all," she cried, clutching onto Rhian for all she had. Emily, Ansel, Derrick, Boyce, Aeron, Lena, Edmund, Sadie - she missed them all. "So, so bad.

Arthur usually hid his emotions when it came to this - well, not really. He usually punched it out somewhere. Here, he can't. He sees the exchange, and his face softens, his facade almost falls. But instead of saying or doing anything, Arthur just walks over to the couch. he sits down, pulling his feet up, and sat, staring at the hallway that led to his parent's old room. Everyone's old rooms. But he didn't say or really do anything. Arthur would let the two have their moment.

It's not long before she comes to her senses and forces to compose herself, because Rhian didn't seem too interested just a bit ago, so it's best she not force matters. Pulling away, Blake wipes her tears away and sits back down, trying not to get too attached. Rhian would likely abandon her again. She was sure of it. "Ummm..."
