Flo digs in to his own, though forgoes manners for a moment to ask with bulging cheeks, “Are they around much?”

Azry gives her son a look.

Flo swallows. “Sorry.”

"My Uncle Stefan comes by once a month," for the full moon, she does not say, "But Damon I haven't seen for about a year. Which isn't unusual."

Permalink

"He's trouble. Damon."

Permalink

She laughs.

"That's a bit of an understatement." 

Permalink

“I don’t know much about troublesome uncles, but I have a troublesome cousin-slash-brother?”

 Flo knows he’s just trying to be involved in the conversation. His family has never been particularly problematic. In fact, he knows for certain that his mother and father will come into bat for him no matter the situation.

Juliet welcomes the subject change.

"Cousin-slash-brother? That seems like a story."

Permalink

“Well, not to make the conversation about me, but yeah. Kieren is dad’s son, but not his father. So like, Dad is his father/uncle, so he’s our brother cousin. He’s lovely though. I hope you get to meet him!”

Permalink

"Sounds like fun. You have so much family. An abundance."

Permalink

“You can blame Mum for that. She adopts strays.”

Permalink

“I’ve always wanted an abundance of Tabris’.”

Azry smiles over at Anwen. “Tabris-Morgan’s.”

Permalink

She smiles back at her and continues eating her food.

Permalink

Azry smiles softly back, tucking Anwen’s pleased smile in her memory.

"I've always wondered what it would be like to have a bunch of siblings. The Boarding House is obviously big enough for it."

Permalink

"The Boarding House?"

Permalink

"I...I thought you said you lived with your dad?"

Permalink

She laughs.

"'The Salvatore Boarding House'. My great something grandfather built it after the Salvatore Estate burned down in 1901. It hasn't actually functioned as a boarding house since I was born though. Just me and my dad and occasionally my two uncles."

Permalink

"Your great-something grandfather sounds like a gas. I'm in awe."

Flo is incredibly relieved.

Permalink

"Your uncle, the one Anwen was talking about, he around a lot?" Azry looks very concerned.

Permalink

"Not really. Sends me postcards randomly. He's not much of a homebody."

Permalink

"Lucky."

Permalink

"He's still my uncle. I wouldn't mind seeing him more often."

Permalink

Flo is not good with sad things. He tends to trivialise them, even if he doesn't mean to. This knowledge does not stop him talking, however.

"Yeah, sometimes I wish Uncle Soris was around more often. And then he actually speaks and I forget why I miss him."

Permalink

"Florenzo Beaumont Tabris, you will not disrespect your Uncle that way."
