Thinking about the fact that this was his last real summer left a nasty feeling in Aeron's stomach. He'd already turned seventeen, but he didn't feel like an adult yet. He probably wouldn't for at least another year, but just thinking about how very close that was unsettled him. He didn't feel ready, but did anyone ever feel ready?
He was sitting at the kitchen table eating breakfast when the owl arrived. The last school owl during the summer he'd ever get. Getting up to let the bird in the house so he could get the letter, Aeron frowned at the weight of both of them. Huh. Maybe they just had extra papers in them for next year. Who knew.
Tossing them both on the table, he decided to finish his breakfast before delivering his sister's letter to her. She was probably asleep still anyway, considering Aeron was up unusually early that morning. There was little point in waking her up for something that could wait a little while longer. They still had a couple months until school started again. As long as she got it before the middle of August it was fine.
What Kathleen liked about summer was that she didn’t have to get up and go to class. But that didn’t mean that she was a particularly late sleeper. In fact, she tended to prefer to get up early and get a start on the day. Sleeping in was for when you had boring things like school to go to. Sleeping in was a waste of the day for holidays when you could get so much done.
“Oh! You’re up early,” she said wandering into the kitchen. “Oooh, are they our Hogwarts letters?” They’d arrived early. Did they always arrive early? Or were the owls just super speedy this year. There was lots of possibilities. She sat down, grabbing hers.

Apparently he didn't have to wake his sister up after breakfast considering she just walked in the room. Oh well that was less work for him. "Well they came on a school owl and look like school letters, so I would assume they are," he said around a mouthful of food. He could have opened his while he ate, but that was a lot going on at once.
However he did look at his sister when she grabbed hers. She was going into her fifth year and had a heavier than usual envelope. He had a feeling that only meant one thing and he wanted to be sure he was right. That didn't explain his letter, but he had no reference for seventh year letters. His could wait a bit longer.
