Weekend Writing Warriors

It's Sunday again, and time for another round of Weekend Writing Warriors. I'm still working on Finding Rupert as my main WiP, and still making pretty good progress.

She out of all of them ought to have known what he'd been through, what with her parents and brother getting killed and then her falling out with her brother's widow too."

"So you didn't think very much of Aunt Julia?"
