Why would a Ministry high witch even bother to travel to Scotland and all the way to Hogsmeade? Why would Alerie Reyne even bother taking the time from her busy schedule to visit a student? Only because this student was just any other but her own family. Aemon was her nephew and very dear to her. Her brother never quite understood how had this one turned out so..normal. Alerie feared that Aemeric had been very loose when it came to raising Aemon but it turned out quite the opposite; the boy was just nice. His house in the other hand was still a manner of debate between Aemeric, Alerie and their father. The boy was still to be raised as a pureblooded nobility, no matter what the house. Alerie also did care for the boy, he was her nephew through it all. Alerie had sent a quick owl to her nephew telling him that she'd join him for a Hogsmeade visit and that they'd catch up.
It was not a request. Besides, Alerie hadn't seen Aemon being so busy in the Ministry and trying to fend off the last remaining Rosewood. The youngest was already in her claws so she did not count. Colton was a minor problem, nothing Alerie couldn't handle. She was wrapped in a thick coat of red and gold where the cold could not get to her. She loathed the cold and perhaps that's why loathed the English weather so much. It was always cold. Alerie waited patiently ( well, it was slowly wearing thin) for her nephew to arrive and wondered if the boy knew not to be late.

Being old enough now to visit the village near the school hadn't quite sunk in with Aemon yet. He'd known it was something that would be allowed of him once he was in his third year, but it seemed like just yesterday he'd only arrived at the school for the first time. He didn't feel like he should already be old enough for such things. School was going by very quickly and all that thought did was raise his already somewhat anxious mind. The future was a daunting thing, always looming over him. He knew that sooner rather than later he would probably have to deal with the task of either making himself happy or making his family happy, because even as a third year student only he knew that he wasn't getting both. He tried not to think of it very much though, because that would ruin his mood.
Although he kept correspondence with his father and his aunt during the school year through letters, getting a note from his aunt that she was going to be visiting him on the next visit to village came as a shock to the boy. He hadn't expected to be able to see her until the Christmas holidays started. And even then, he didn't expect it to be very much. She was a terribly busy woman after all. She had more important things to do than spend time with a teenage boy.
Wrapped in a plain grey coat with his Hufflepuff scarf proudly on display, Aemon made his way into the village. He wasn't very familiar with the layout yet, having been a scarce few times yet, so it took him a moment to locate the shop he'd been instructed to meet his aunt in. Hopefully she wouldn't mind him being barely just on time. He hurried as quickly as he could and entered the shop. It was a more popular one so there were students littered around here and there, but it was easy to spot the woman all the same. She would probably have stood out in a crowd of a hundred equally lavishly dressed people, never mind in a gaggle of teenagers.
Pushing through his schoolmates, Aemon came to a stop in front of her, a small smile playing around his mouth. "Auntie," he greeted with enthusiasm. Maybe he didn't always see eye to eye with his family, but he loved all of them all the same and any time he got to just himself with the adults was cherished.

The teenagers around her made Alerie quite nauseous. She liked her own children and her brothers children but everyone else were simply..disgusting. Perhaps there was one exception and that was Ariana Rosewood. She was simply a little lost dove that needed a push. Alerie was the perfect for that because she acted as the lioness and protected her from her own family even if her own family was there to protect Ariana. Oh well. The wheels had been set and there was nothing the last remaining Rosewood could do. Aemeric so far had not been informed about this but he was soon. Alerie was sure of that. Expect that his brother has been acting like a total ass, Alerie was holding back vital information from him just to ensure that he learned his lesson.
Obviously little Aemon was not to suffer from his fathers idiocy and she was glad to finally see him. Aemon was a little lamb, not as strong willed perhaps as his siblings but still a Reyne. Seeing the little boy wrapped in a..yellow and black scarf did make Alerie cringe a little from the inside but he didn't let her smile fade on bit. " Aemon, my dear." She said and immediately hugged the little one tightly. " It's very good to see you, Aemon. Your father failed to tell me that you've grown quite a bit."
