"No." Fred stopped and turned to face his brother then, when Percy stopped. "I don't think you lost your family at all, unless you really are an idiot. We're right where you left us when you got into a fight with dad and were too bloody full of yourself to come back like a man."
Fred still wasn't entirely sure what had happened - dad didn't like to talk about it, and mum got angry or cried every time they tried to ask, but Fred also knew that people fought. You didn't walk away and refuse to talk to your whole bloody family for months because of a disagreement.
