Still no word from you. Just figured I'd check to make sure lines of communication were clear. Looks like they are.

YOU HAVE TO SPEAK TO ALPHARD TODAY. RIGHT NOW. DROP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND GO SEE HIM, THIS IS A LIFE OR DEATH SITUATION!
<Owl to Lucius, 6:00 pm>
Calm down. It's just a ball, and just a girl. There are far more important things for you to be worried about, like your grades or whether or not Regulus is going to strangle you in your sleep. I will talk to Alphard when I get a chance, but quite frankly it's not high up on my list of priorities.

Lucius Draco Augustus Malfoy, I am not in the least bit amused by you going over my head to your mother. That woman spoils you too much, and you're damn lucky that you're all the way in Wales and out of my reach.
I most certainly did not tell you that Narcissa was a harlot and not worth your time. You know your mother favours her for you, how dare you get me on her bad side that way?
I'll have you know that for this week that I'm sleeping on the couch, you are going to the Halloween ball with
Molly Prewett Narcissa Black.
Your mother was reading over my shoulder and made me cross that out. Rest assured that if I were actually in charge of this family instead of just pretending to be you'd be very unhappy right now.
Prat. You're turning out like your uncle Tom.
