"True, but I'd rather not think about that." Because really, she well knew what usually consisted of her parents spending time together. Patty wasn't exactly a prude, but when it came to her parents? Yeah, she'd rather think about more platonic things. At Alex's question, Patty went into thought, remembering what the date was today. "Um...yeah, Valentine's was Tuesday, I believe. Which...oh god." She glanced at the clock and hoped to anyone who was listening that Alex wouldn't project in on something he shouldn't see, and would undoubtedly be better off not seeing. "I remember mom saying something about a trip like that once. Didn't listen to the whole thing, though. So uh, just cover your eyes when you first appear, and if there's something icky going on, come back here. We can totally try a teleportation spell." Because she, too, wasn't going to bother Mel to take them, not with Patrick here.
She nodded a bit as Alex explained his plan. She knew he practiced with it a lot, but even with that, projecting a couple states over was a stretch. But all they needed was a couple minutes for him to get his point across. "Just, be careful, all right? I'll make sure everything stays okay on this end, but if I start tugging at you, do me a favor and listen and come back, okay?" She set her hand on his shoulder, giving him a little worried look. It was rare for it to show, but she was worried for her brother. "And tell mom to use a teleportation spell or something to get back here. I'm not going to sit and wait another day or two for them to drive back here." Patty really hoped that it would be enough time to get through to their parents, she well knew they both could be incredibly stubborn and unwilling to believe sometimes. Mostly from her own personal experience, but she'd seen it happen with others on occasion.
