Yeah, she remembered. Whatever though. She was starting to realize that if he really did want to spend time with her, he'd figure out a way to. Everyone else around the school seemed to be able to. He did realize he wasn't the only one with a little sister, right?

Blah, blah, blah. If anyone asked her, spending time with her was NEVER on her big brother's mind. Right now though, she was content with their current conversation. "When exams are over? Do you know how far away that is? I could test this theory multiple times over by then. Surely she could find some friends of her own that were interested in this. Yup, she didn't need his help.

"Of course she does! She's mama" Duh! Mama's are supposed to know everything.

Truthfully she didn't understand what he was waiting for or why he was so worried. In her young mind, her big brother was behaving very silly but if he wanted to take ages and ages, she would let him. Even if it was completely and utterly beyond BORING!
Quite honestly, he would figure out a way to hang out with her, whenever he wanted to do so, of course. Past years aside, this year was quite different and priorities had to be made. Plus he never was great with time management, which was a significant factor at play when it came to why he wasn't readily available to hang out, and assumed their older sisters and her friends would keep Bryony occupied. But that wasn't the case apparently; she wanted to be around him. And, well, at this point in their conversation, he would argue that they were technically hanging out now, albeit not in exactly the most fun of settings.

"Exams are in June," he told her, unable to disagree with her that the month was still eons away. That fact still weighed on him, mainly because that meant he had many hours of studying left to do. Thankfully the next comment that left his sister's mouth distracted his thoughts from the months of studying ahead. "Multiple times? You'd have to somehow survive the first attempt. ... But if you can't wait just a few more months and want to have a go without me, then okay... good luck..." he replied with a sigh, whether he was being genuine or feigning being hurt by her words was up for interpretation.

There were no disagreements when it came to their mother: she did know a lot. But he supposed that came with adulthood and now being a professor. It was her job to know things, even certain things that she probably pretended not to be aware of. She would probably have plenty to tell the first year about the importance of these exams and how it was best not to rush into everything, among many other things.

"Is there anything else...? Or are you gonna stick around and help me study?"
