[complete] FH: Balance the Cost

The decision had been made long before the moment came. There was no backing out, even if she wanted to. But right now, she was focused.

The owl swooped down in the early morning into Neve's dorm room. The small, brown owl landed on the pillow near her head, and after a moment, pecked. The letter was tied to bird's leg.

How'd you like to play hookie? I'll be at our usual spot.

- Auntie K.


Kiera was no novice as sneaking her niece out of school here and there for an hour or two, but she hadn't done it in more than a year. In fact, she'd hardly seen her niece since her kidnapping. Still, she'd occasionally send the girl silly drawings or poems about how shitty being a teenager could be -- all the stuff she would have liked when she was her age, and the relationship was strong enough. At least it was strong enough for Kiera to believe she had her trust. She waited on the edge of the forbidden forest -- what a stupid fucking name -- watching her breath float up in the cool morning air.

Although Neve was a bit salty about Kiera's reduced visits in sneaking her out, she was also pretty much ALWAYS up for playing hookie. Usually, playing sick just ended her up in Madame Pomfrey's wing, so she merely threw on a thick robe and slipped away from the other students on the way to class.

Her wand in her hand, her hands stuffed in her pockets against the cold, she tromped across the greenery towards the meeting spot. Head bowed, shoulders hunched inward. Kiera would probably see her coming a mile away. As soon as Neve reached the edge of the forest, she peered around the trees for her aunt. "Hello?"

"You're really rocking the goth thing now, aren't you?" Kiera said wryly, stepping around a tree, hands shrugged into her jean jacket. "How's it going, Nin?"

Ninny was the childhood nickname Kiera used for her niece when she was still in diapers. As she got older, Nin took it's place.

"Okay," she answered in a tone that suggested otherwise. In her sulky stare, a measure of resentment. "What do you want?"

"Woah," she said, hands out, smirking at her tone. "Would you rather go to class than hang out with your aunt then?"

Neve rolled her eyes the way that only a teenager can. "I'm just wondering what took so long for you to finally visit again. This--," she gestured at her hair with a wave of her hand, chipped black polish on her nails, "--ain't exactly recent."

Neve's eyes softened with the unfiltered warmth that had once characterized their relationship. It was brief, merely a flash, before the teenage wall went up again and she side-eyed her. "You aren't getting married or anything, are you?"

Kiera barked out a laugh. "Not in your dreams." She held out a hand, still smiling. "If you're lucky I'll sneak you a beer."

At the mention of beer, she pulled a face. "I don't even think it works on me, and it tastes like ass."

Werewolf metabolism was a drag sometimes.

Neve eyed Kiera's hand. She was a teenager now GOD, but it wasn't like she could apparate herself. With some reluctance, she loosely grabbed it.

"No beer for you, then," Kiera smirked and with a wink apparated them to the street just outside of Three Broomsticks. She dropped her hand as soon as she knew Neve was alright. She walked to the door and held it open.

It was always a little disorienting apparating for a side-along. Getting over the initial vertigo with a little sway, she headed into the Three Broomsticks and looked all around, scoping the place out. Like in general but also in case there was anyone she knew or any cute guys or anything.

With how early it was on a Friday morning, the building was practically empty, save for those having a light breakfast and a handful of regulars who likely slept upstairs. There was a general lack of hot guys, unfortunately.

"Hungry?" Kiera asked as she stepped in behind her.

"God, always." She huffed dryly. Weaving past the entrance towards a table, she scooped out the posted menu for the meatiest dishes. The appetite came with the being a werewolf and was exacerbated by being a growing teen.

Kiera flagged a waitress and soon enough they had food and drinks ordered.

"How's school going?" Kiera asked once the waitress stepped away.

It was still early, so she got a traditional breakfast with extra sausage and slices of black pudding and strong cup of tea. At Kiera's question, she shrugged. "It's school," she said as if that explained everything. "How's work?"

"And it's much safer from werewolves now, so... bonus." Her tone was dry and casual. Across the room, the waitress came out with their orders on a tray, and Neve's eyes instantly zeroed in on her, tracking the food as it came to them.

She narrowed her eyes a little at the bitterness, but otherwise kept her mouth shut. She turned her attention to the waitress as well who set the food down in front of them without much poise or grace. She switched up the tea and the coffe, and Kiera, after giving a forced smile moved to place the cup of tea in front of the girl. As she did, a tiny white capsule fell expertly from her fingers into the brown liquid. She pulled her coffee to herself and took a long pull of the stuff.

"How's your dad doing?"

"Thanks," Neve said when Kiera switched their drinks around for her. Her hair fell forward as she arranged her napkin on her lap and said, "Ugh... okay, I guess. At least this summer I didn't walk in on any of his dates, so that's nice."

Tossing her hair back, she picked up her fork and made a conscious effort not to wolf down her food and merely ate it very fast.
