Because all of the Karras siblings had managed to be born in march, apparently the fall was a great time for Atlas, but because of the mass of birthdays in March the siblings got together with just them to celebrate. It was a relatively good idea. That and they didn’t have to worry about parties none of them wanted, and the celebration with a father that didn’t care enough about them to be there during the year. It was a way to show their father that he was not what dictated their lives. This year however it would include Orion. The family had been surprised of course but honestly, Lot was rather excited to have another quidditch player in the family. Petros and Lot were brothers but they honestly didn’t have much in common. The truth was that he saw more of himself in Orion than he did Petros. However that did not change the love held among them.
This year the party was at his place. It was not the biggest home in the world… however it was perfect for this purpose. Doe had come in the night before to help with the preparations. The kids were out in the backyard running around. Persephone was in the swing in the doorway giggling up a storm. He smiled at Doe. They had been discussing her trip to Greece and what the family had said about everything… It was what Lot expected, and he was trying to understand the rift between Doe and her husband with what limited information she had given him. It seemed as though she was trying. He didn’t envy her, nor did he envy Jason. To be married to the Karras family was not easy. He was just glad they seemed to be working things out… They had been able to get Orion for the weekend… that was e feat in and of itself.
The sound of the door made him smile and he picked up the little princess that was bouncing in her swing and laughed as he opened the door. ”Ah you made it” He said ushering the youngest of their siblings into the home. His large hand clapped on his shoulder and he ushered him into the kitchen. ”Doe has been prepping things and we are almost ready to put the chicken out on the grill…” he said with a smile. ”Have you learned the fine art of grilling yet?” That was the important thing to Lot. He had not stayed in school like the rest of them. ”Young Silas will be happy to see you, you are the new favorite topic.” he said with a smile. Doe moved from her spot to greet Orion with a kiss as she moved to slice the carrots.
