Fleur smiled at his kindness and accepted the parchment greatfully. Hopefully Gabrielle would see this as a good opportunity. If nothing else, than as a way to be safe while still being able to visit Fleur. "Of course. I will give it to 'er zhe moment she arrives."
"Of course." She nodded. She schooled her exasperation as yet another professor made themself at home. Really, did they not thing she had things to do? Well, someone to do...but she couldn't expect them to know that. She hoped Lavender wasn't getting too upset. This was an inconvience, but a necessisary one. She understood though, this was a nerve wracking topic. She could use a glass of wine herself.
At Slughorn's offer, Fleur paused. It was a good offer and surely it would help her sister. Still, she was weary of most Slytherins, despite their kind hea of house. If he was offering this help though, as much a she would hate seeing Gabrielle in the cold green and silver, she knew it was what had to be done. "I zhink zhat could work. She would be most protected in zhat 'ouse. " she nodded.
Chewing her lip for a moment, she debated silently before she spoke again. "Professeur, I know you are already taking on a lot for me and ma soeur, so I must confess to you. In upmost secrecy." She paused and took a breath, not wanting to le their secret be known, but knowing that if Slughorn was going to take this on, he had a right to know. She was sure he already suspected. "We Delacours...we are...we are not entirely 'uman." She paused. "Gabrielle and I, our grand-mere wa a veela. We are one quarter. More zhan enough to be prosecuted under zhis new regime. Zhis is why I am so scared for Gabrielle. She...she is young and still 'as trouble controlling 'er veela, oui? If zhey were to find out..." She shuddered. "I can take care of myself, but I am so scared for Gabrielle. But I cannot keep 'er in France. She is too 'eadstrong."
"I understand if you no longer wish to 'old up your offer."
