Moving the cup in circles with a delicate touch, she shrugged deeply. "With Alan and my own life and..." She paused, she pushed a blonde lock out of her face, "You just seem to have it all together all the time." Her face dropped from its typical cheeriness to one filled with remorse.

Bryony's eyes widened in surprise. "You think I have it together?!" She couldn't help but laugh. "And here I was thinking you were so full of grace."

Charlie let out a matching laugh with her friend. Her shoulders dropped with a swift exhale. ”Oh thank god. I was starting to think I was the only one.” Charlie liked to maintain her cheerful attitude at all times. She was afraid that people would think she was weak if she didn’t maintain a flawless façade.

She smiled sympathetically. "I think we're all just pretending we know how to be adults," she said, a lightness in her voice. "I certainly don't know what I'm doing." She reached across the counter to take Charlie's hand. "Is there anything specific you want to talk about?"

Charlie didn’t even know where to start. It just felt good to vent to a sympathetic ear. ”I just feel so…” She struggled to find the right word to describe what was going through her head ”inadequate. I mean how am I supposed to be a parent to… I'm just very concerned Alan is struggling with his...How am I suppose to help him with...” She cut herself off when she realized she had been rambling and not making much sense. ”What I mean is it is difficult to connect. For all I know, Alan is secretly ashamed of his squib aunt and that’s why he’s never had a friend over.”

Bryony had taken a long time to understand. She understood that Charlie was flustered but she had never considered it had anything to do with her being a squib until she finally admitted it. She shook her head instantly.

"I can't make guarantees but I have a very good feeling that your being a squib has very little to do with Alan's behavior. Teenage boys are incredibly hard to contend with, magical or not," she said patting her hand in sympathy. "And you not having magic won't impact him at home. In fact, I imagine it's nice to have a reprieve from the pressures of school when he's with you." She took a deep breath considering. "As you help him to feel more comfortable in his skin, the friend's and the appreciation with come. I'm sure of it."

Charlie's lips pursed into a faint smile, she nodded at her friends words. Everything she was saying made sense to the logical part of her brain, but the illogical part was screaming at her that everything she was saying was wrong. Picking up her cup, she took a quick sip off the top. "That must be it." She remembered being a teenager. She never turned down a new friend or a place to go that wasn't her own house for the night. Maybe it was different for teenage boys. "Enough about me. Tell me, how is Elijah doing?"

Her smile faltered at the mention of Elijah. She was so used to getting that particular question, but considering recent events she wasn't as comfortable answering it. "He's fine. Working hard as ever. Has his eyes set on some big promotion, so I don't see him often. But he's happy, I think."

"Are you?" She questioned through the lip of her cup, her brow raised. "Happy, that is?" Her friend's smile had seemed to fallen when she had asked how her husband was. From Charlie's experience, the little that she had, that's not exactly how relationships went or were suppose to go.

She took a deep breath and sat back a little. "I have a lot of things in my life I am happy about, yes. But I think it's hard to feel happy all of the time."

From the way she spoke, she could tell she wasn't being completely truthful or at least wasn't showing her whole hand. Instead of pushing her for more, despite her desire to do so, she changed the subject. "You should come by the salon soon, business has been going well now that Ministry works are so terrified they might catch something from me." She offered with a lithe laugh.

She was glad for the respite from the questioning. She wasn't ready to talk about her feelings. She rarely was. She chuckled and nodded. "Of course I will. I'm so glad for you, Charlie. You deserve it."
