The days that Nymphadora's been back have sped by far more quickly than she'd like. There've been near-daily visits to the Healers, for tests and exams and ultrasounds, and Durkin's been scratching his head trying to re-calculate Charlotte's exact due date. Then there's Allbright, who hugged her, told her off, and dumped a foot-high stack of reports on her desk, in that order.

Other things are coming more slowly. Time with Bernard and the kids is still tenuous, fragile. Like no one's exactly sure she's home to stay, deep down.

'Dora hates that.

As soon as he gets the owl, which brings a note simply stating "I'm finally home", Tom drops everything and hurries to the Tonks-Wrangle flat.

He knows nothing of what has transpired over the past few months. All he knows it that his dearest friend and her family have been absent from his life, presumably on holiday, since no hue and cry was raised about their absence in the general bar.

Tom's not been in the bar nearly as much as he once was accustomed. This and the usual fast flowing waters of life have all led to this incorrect assumption.

The wards aren't locked against him, so he comes right into the flat and upon seeing 'Dora, he sweeps her into a huge hug. "Bloody hell, I missed you. How was France? Next time you might answer my frantically worried owls, you sneak." He's laughing and smiling the whole time, so the upbraiding is not meant harshly.

He frowns, still smiling.

"You all went on holiday, yes? I mean, I would have known if something bad happened, but since no one mentioned anything, I figured you all slipped away for a very well-deserved, extended holiday."

"What?"

He looks her over, baffled. Has she had the baby? Why didn't anyone tell him?

"But- I came one afternoon to check in, and no one was home. I haven't seen Bernard tending, but then I haven't been up here nearly as much as- Pirates? Are you alright? Is the baby-?"

He's gone from gleeful to frantically confused in a very short time.

"He was here the whole time? When we have child minders and rooms in the House, and I didn't see Sunny and Anthony for all that time-"

He breaks off. There's a reason why he stoop with her at her wedding. 'Dora was his friend before Bernard had even found the bar. He feels the wind has been knocked out of him by a particularly nasty curse, but the anger and hurt at this revelation is not her fault.

"You're sure you're alright? And who the hell is Elizabeth Swann? What pirates? Captain Jack and his crew? I spoke to Henry Wellard recently who was swept away with Jack and his ship. Are you certain you're alright?"

His only response is to embrace her again.

After a few moments, he says quietly, "That's why I stay away from that bloody front door. The time passed more quickly for you there, you said?"

Bernard's been swinging from one extreme to the next, either clinging to 'Dora like he can't let her go, or keeping to his study, the door closed, immersed in work.

It's the latter he's indulging in today.

He just... It's hard, getting used to her again. Getting used to not missing her.

"Mmmmno," he answers, absentminded, scribbling in the margins of the top page of a huge stack of back inventory sheets. "You want me to make you something?"

"--Oh." He looks up finally, flushing. "I didn't mean to imply you weren't, I just-- Sorry."

She's not the only one.

Biting his lip, Bernard organizes his papers into five neat stacks and pushes his chair back, padding to the kitchen behind her. Watching. Contrite.

Mal got any notes there were to be had a little late -- he'd not been coming in but for bartending, and at the end of his shift Bar thought to deliver a scrawled thing from Dora.

And Mal sprints directly upstairs.

He's already one timid knock in when he decides its way too late to be visiting, and turns to wait until tomorrow.

The book lands with a rather resounding thud.

Dumbstruck and stiff, "...You're gonna wake everyone up."

Mal loosens (as much as he can, with Dora hanging on so tight), and lays his arms around the smaller woman's shoulders. "Will served me up to Sao Feng. I traded my gun to get out o' jail."

Clipped and wy, "Mmmm no, I'm pretty sure I had it right with that one.






"...Is he back?"
