Music was playing as she wandered around the house. Holly didn’t often get free time, in fact, since she’d become a mother it was a rare thing. That was back when she was raising her daughter alone, juggling university and work on top of it. Life had changed so much in the past year that if she stopped and really examined it she’d be more amazed than she was at the present. After all, over a year ago she was a single mother and orphan trying to aim for her dream career whilst living in a flat that even rats refused to squat in.

Now not only did Saffron have her Father actively in her life, she also had her own. She’d also discovered that she had a little sister, a sister that was around the same age as Saffron. She’d realized that she already had the career that she wanted and she had a house that rats would be happy to squat in. All that added with now that Saffron had more family Holly found herself with days where she didn’t have to watch every move of her precocious daughter.

This is what had led to Holly playing music louder than she really should and dancing around bra-less and free. Her hair was un-brushed and sat around her face and shoulders in whatever way it damn well pleased and she danced around the living room, her wand making the vacuum suck up the last few crumbs on the carpet. Food was happily cooking in the oven and pillows were plumping themselves.

So it wasn’t exactly the normal picture of freedom one would expect from a mid twenties witch who had a few days child free and off work, but, the house still needed to be clean. She’d spent the two days previously being much less house proud but since her child would be returning soon with her Father in tow it was a good idea to at least try and have a house that looked like the one single occupant hadn’t be a complete slob when left alone.

A quick check of the clock ten minutes before had told Holly she had about thirty minutes more too dance around and clean before her hair would have to be brushed, her bra would have to be put on and so would some lower half clothes then food from her attempts at cooking could be put on the table and then the door would open and through it would come her Daughter and Jon.

Something she was rather looking forward to, if she was completely honest.

At the start of the Tallygarunga Break, Jonathan had taken Saffron for that small bit of time, while it lasted a few weeks before the term shifts he found it gave ample enough time in bursts to get a better idea of the daughter he never had the chance to know or understand. It placed him in a peculiar situation, having to not only keep her safe but mostly a secret from majority of his 'associates' that would see her as a target or even see her mother as a target. That had been a nightmare he wasn't fond of reliving, knowing that it could always be right around the corner either for what he was within his veins or what he had been in career that ran almost every aspect of his life. 

She'd been a strong willed young girl, one that he found reminded him quite a lot of Holly during their Tally years. Whether that had been a good thing or bad thing? He wasn't sure yet but he knew that in the end, Holly turned out to be a phenomenal woman by his standards. Energetic and crazy, spontaneous and though he wouldn't entirely admit it so easily it'd been those old traits emphasized in her now adult life that reminded him of the heated moments they often shared with one another in the past. 

Not a minute late or a minute early from the specified time, his hand raising up to wrap the edge of his knuckles against the door with a gentle hand resting on the top of Saff's head. In only a short time she'd become an important part of his life, often he berated himself and not Holly for the time that he'd missed. Alas, everything happened for a reason, an ancient belief often spoken amongst his own grandparents when he deigned to meet or see them. 

"We're here, Holly." His voice carried with a strength, not in any manner to rush the woman but at least to make her aware that they'd arrived. Though he did want her to rush, at least to be able to see her far sooner. The longer he stared at the door the lengthier it seemed the time had been even though barely half a millisecond even passed. "Make sure you have everything, Saffron. I don't think I will be able to travel back within the week to give you it all in a timely manner." A courtesy warning for her to double check that everything had been in order before they would have to depart from one another. He did have far more time currently to spend.
