He'd just received a very troubling owl regarding Charles. He came downstairs immediately to the Common Room looking for Frances. This couldn't be right-- there had to be a mistake.

She was sitting on the couch, her knees pulled to her chest, a book right on top. It was about archery. She hadn't been joking about wanting to learn.

He plopped down next to Frances. "Did you get the letter, too?"

She looks up, confused. "What letter?"

He dropped the paper onto Frances' book. "Charles has been..." he glanced around and then dropped his voice down. "Arrested."

It takes a moment to register, but when it does, her eyes widen. She closes the book, quickly shifting around to face her brother fully. She inclines her head slightly, in a what did you just say? kind of way. "Excuse me?"

"It's in the letter," he said, nodding to it. "Drugs."

If possible, her eyes bug out even further. Charles? Associated with drugs? With imprisonment? She couldn't believe it. "I - wait, hold on, when did you get this owl? When did this happen? How much drugs? Does he have the chance for bail? Do mom and dad know? How is this going to affect us? Our image? No, forget about our image - what do mom and dad think? Oh God, they're gonna call us back to America."

He waited patiently through all of her questionz before holding up his hands. "Easy, Frankie. I got the owl about ten minutes ago... as soon as I got it, I came to look for you." He tried to prioritize which questions to answer, and in what order, based on what he knew. "We're not going anywhere. I don't know if Mom and Dad know... but they might. Because Michael's gonna come and be our new caretaker."

"Michael is going to what?!" Frances jerks away from Sterling, giving him an alarmed look. "Michael who dropped out of school? Michael who ditched his family to chase his dreams? Wild Michael?"

"Frankie, think about it. These charges... they've got to be bogus. You and I know Charles wouldn't do something like this. We've only just started school... Michael coming over is probably more for... show or something. Like a placeholder. We wouldn't have to live with him until the summer. Which I'm sure won't happen because Charles will be out long before then."

OOC: Also your post on the Forbidden Forest, I believe. :)

"He's gonna be such a bad influence for David," Frances says, her voice whiny. "He's a big enough pain in the ass. Honestly, if Michael starts asking for weekend meet-ups, I'll be a no-show," she pauses. "No, wait, wrong priorities. Mom and dad... we need to owl them," she frowns.

"I'm sure Mom and Dad already know," he said. "Why else would Michael be coming?" He paused. "Do we even want to tell David? I mean... I guess I had assumed, incorrectly-- I apologize-- that we'd all been owled individually about this. But if you didn't get anything... that probably means David didn't, either."

"Yeah, why did you get the owl and I didn't?" Frances frowns. "I'm the older one," she pauses, and her eyes narrow. "I swear, if this is some misogynistic kind of thing, I'm going to hit someone," she rolls her eyes. "If David didn't get one... think we should still tell him. This is his life, too. His brothers."

He nodded. "Alright." He frowned. "I mean, we're twins. You might be technically older but," he shrugged.

She studies him for a moment longer, frowning, before just shaking her head. "Should we go look for David or something?"

He nodded. "Yeah, I s'pose," he said with a sigh.

She places her book aside and stands up, before extending a hand to her twin. "Let's go see where he is, then."

He nodded, rising by taking her hand, before letting it go when he was upright. He loved Frances... but he didn't need to hold her hand down the hall.

France stuffs her hands into her jacket's pockets and turns, headed towards the common room exit.
