RP: Hestia comes clean
Date: 14 September 1997, evening
Characters: Hestia Jones, Petunia, Vernon, and Dudley Dursley (YES!)
Summary: The Dursley home was ransacked on Thursday, and Hestia finally brings herself to tell the family.
For the weekend, things had been rather quiet around St. Mungo's. Normally, Hestia would have been grateful for the time to herself around the hospital, but the idle time had given her mind time to wander and worry about the events of the previous week.
The Dursley's home had been searched and nearly torn apart, and that was something that she couldn't keep from them for another day. Mrs. Figg, who lived a few streets away from them, said that she nearly missed the commotion, but she was lucky to be out and about that day(chasing after one of her cats, no doubt) to witness the group of Ministry 'officials' exiting the residence. Hestia had made time that week to visit the property to assess the damage. She wasn't sure how wise it was to visit the house, but hopefully Death Eaters weren't watching the place too closely. If they were, perhaps she could simply pass for a curious muggle.
"Good evening, I'm back," Hestia said before she quickly replaced her wards around the safehouse. She was tired from spending the day at St. Mungo's, but she knew what she had to do. "I've got a bit of news to share with you," Hestia announced as she secured the back door. Hopefully they hadn't noticed a great change in her behavior since Thursday, but if they had, they were about to receive an explanation.
