With a side glance, Elodie pocketed her list. "I'm just looking, thanks. Figuring out what I'll need and where I can get it from, is all." She wasn't really planning on buying anything today, nor was she up to discuss her plans for what she was looking for. But she knew it was his job. So....he was lucky she hadn't told him to bog off.

Sneaking into her potions equipment, breaking all the phials under the excuse that she just wanted to "try it, too". Yeah...the former Gryffindor was pretty up there steaming but was getting better at controlling those moments. Only yelled that once then got quiet and seethy. Improvement, no? At any rate, it was better than when the then infant had gotten into the potions and swallowed things she shouldn't have. Nevermind how determined the 6 year old would've had to be to get into them NOW, Lex was keeping her composure. Calm. Calm.

Alexa moved briskly through the store, her grip firm but not abrasive around Emmerson's wrist as she pulled her along. This would be a short trip. There would be no stop in the candy shop. There would be no new toys from WWW. They would not get ice-cream. Someone was in huge trouble.

It was a little difficult keeping up with the wide steps her mother took but at this point, she knew better than to protest. She hadn't meant to break everything. How was she supposed to know climbing the shelves like that would make it happen? Now her knees hurt and she had a bandaid and a sinking feeling the yelling her mother hadn't done at the house would be done when they got back.

She WAS sorry but Mummy seemed to get angrier every time she said it, so she'd stopped for now and would wait til later to give her hugs and cuddles and make everything better. Yes. She'd wait for bedtime and everything would be okay. For now, she did her best not to touch anyth--"AUNTIE ELODIE!!!"Without thinking, the 6 year old tugged away sharply and ran toward the woman, all grins. Angry mother? What angry mother? "HI! HIIIIII! Where's Italy??" That's what Mummy called her and she liked it too so she did.

Circe sake. "Emmerson!" The words the kid had yelled before running off didn't register, only the fact that she had. Lex turned sharply on her heel to go after her, pausing only as the shopkeeper addressed her. Help? He could maybe help her stay out of Azkaban. Breathe, Alexa. "New phials to start."
It was then that she heard her name being yelled and found herself smiling. She knew the voice of everyone important in her life and this little person was one of them. With an equally wide grin, she gave Emmerson a one-armed hug and stroked her hair. "Hi, sweetheart. You okay? Where's Mummy?" She knew Lex would be somewhere nearby, but her mother instinct kicked in and she wanted to double check... just in case. She knew her friend would do the same if it were Cecily on the loose in the alley. Hell, Elodie bet Alexa would be finding Cecily here, there and everywhere as she got older. It was already hard enough to keep track of the little dancer.

"Cece is at school, sweetheart. She's.. learning all those basic muggle things." And that was a firm reminder that Elodie needed to get her into something with Wizarding knowledge again.

It's cool, I'm just teaching full time and doing a three year degree in one year.
I'll be back. Forever in need of a cheerleader though.
Stay safe, faves.
