Well. The summer was not a complete and horrible bore after all. A few days after a certain incident, when I was a touch sore (but entirely healthy, magicked recovery is the only way), the parents surprised me with rather delightful news.
I do believe it was all an attempt to salvage their shitty marriage, and they believed time away from the stress and bore of work and this life could help. Certainly after an incident, mother felt father needed time away. Therefore, they arranged a trip to the Caribbeans.
Accompanying us was Narcissa and her family, and Alice. I am under the impression she had had to come along due to her disgraceful parents managing their messy affairs.
The trip itself was enjoyable. Unlike what someone may say, I am very aware of the fact I have sensitive skin. I was quite fond of "Sebastian's Sunblock, guarenteed not to ooze or oil! (Can hardly tell it's on at all!)" The joys of the brand is simply that it is hardly a lotion. There is no oily texture or dripping, once it's on it might as well not be--but full protection from the sun ensured. Magicked to do so, of course.
The beach had more than it's share of eye candy, and I'll leave it at that. It's not hard to guess how Narcissa occupied herself, judging from the noise that came from her room. I amused myself with just enjoying the view at the beach, and whether you care to interpret 'view' as the ocean or those -in- the ocean, it is certainly up to you.
I was most kind in informing the parents when they later inquired that we had been making the noise in Narcissa's room, so as to save her any trouble. You'd think she would be grateful, but no..
Unfortunately, towards the end of the week someone replaced the sunblock in my bottle with "Sebastion's Hand Lotion." I have sensitve skin. I turned very red. I do suspect someone, who really ought to have been more grateful. Not a problem, mendable by certain salves and the like, but still humiliating while it lasted. I spent my time in my room, or at one of the village things.
Did have a nice discussion with Alice while holed in my room during the lobster days.
Well, it was certainly entertaining. So good to get out of the house, horrible I'm back again.
