Hello, sister. (Lara)
It been a shock to find out his sister was here as well when Harry told him. Thomas was beginning to wonder if there would ever be a time in his life where he didn't feel pulled between loyalties and siblings. And this time Justine wasn't here with him. That cut deeply and he'd have to hide how bad it was to make sure Lara didn't take advantage of it.
It was better to take the initiative and see her now instead of waiting for her to inevitably run across him at some point. Sort of like just manning up and taking the nasty tasting medicine quickly instead of sitting around dreading it for hours.
That meant after a quick smoothing of his hair with his fingers Thomas presented himself to the door of his sister's house.
