Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

Mystery Unsolved
May 3rd, 1888 — Evening, Scrimgeour Estate, Wellingtonshire
Bella was alive! Thank heavens to Rueben Crouch. Though she wasn’t sure if he was lying about not knowing her sisters location, she could at least be at ease that she was well enough to write to her rumored boyfriend.  But that information was basically useless to her if she couldn’t do something about it. It was obvious that Bella wouldn’t be sending letters to her or any of her known friends. Pestering more information from Mr Crouch could be possible, but with the way he spoke to her she doubt that he would reveal anything else.

Araminta’s only option was to let her brother know. He at least could be more useful since he worked at the Ministry. Julius cared for Bella and she was sure if there was anyone in the family who wanted their sister out of harm, it was Julius. But the thing was that she had to wait until the evening after his work.

In fear that their father might over hear their conversation, she waited until Julius had returned to his room. Once she was sure that their parents were gone, she stealthily went to her brother’s room and knocked softly at the wooden door.

He had retired to his room right after dinner, just like had every day for the past few weeks. His willingness to deal with anything mundane had been cut even shorter than normal recently after the argument with his father over Bella's appearances in Witch Weekly. When Bella's case had come to light and he'd been informed he wouldn't be allowed to assist in the case due to his connections to her, his willingness to do anything had reduced even further. He spent most of his free time pouring over whatever he could find relating to his sister's case - even if he wasn't supposed to be working on it. You don't tell someone their sister was missing and expect them not to try and find her.

When a knock sounded, he startled. The staff normally left him alone in the afternoon. He wasn't a messy person and they all knew better than to touch his desk with his work. Shuffling any paper he could see relating to Bella messily into an open drawer, shoving it shut, and dropping an earlier discarded book from the floor and opening it to a random page. "Come in," he called after he has shoved everything away, his voice rough from disuse.

bree does things!
She had to wait a bit before she was given permission to enter. Which made her suspicious of what he was doing when she arrived. Araminta gently opened the door and closed it after she entered. They wouldn’t want anyone to overhear their conversation. Her eyes wandered, admiring the decoration of her brother’s room. She vaugley remembered entering his room as a child but she couldn’t remember if it was this one or if he had moved while she was at Hogwarts. Oddly, she found it to be … relaxing. Most probably because her brother was here.

Then her sight fell on Julius and the item that he was holding and gave off an amused smile as she approached him. “Nice book, Jules. I never knew you could read upside down.” She giggled. This was probably the first time she laughed since Bella went missing. The house was so tense that it felt weird to feel calm and happy.
