    Where Art Thou Fur

    It wasn’t so often that she had the pleasure of having Antigone as her chaperone. It was a blessing to as she did not have to always be reminded on how painfully single she was. It did not help that her sister was with her third child, as if her marriage wasn’t putting enough pressure at her.

    At least she had an opportunity to call her sister fat, that would make the trip less taxing.

    Today, Ligeia had matched her greyish-blue robe with an expensive grey fur capelet that her father brought home from Italy just to show off to Antigone. She just hoped her dreaded child-wife sister would not dare to stain it again with ice cream, well she can’t as they were headed off to ‘Insert Fancy Restaurant Name here’ for lunch after hat shopping. “Tig, you are drooling,” The debutante chuckled as she continued teasing her sister “We can skip the hat store if you really want to eat.”

    Her hands consciously gently caressed the soft caplet but after a second it seemed to have vanished. She caught a glimpsed of her reflection at the store they were passing by with a gasp. Where the fuck was her fur?

    Tig might've turned her sister down for hat shopping in Hogsmeade if she weren't fairly certain that her days of freedom were rapidly coming to an end. Honestly, she wasn't too cut up about curtailing her attendance of balls and the likes, she felt ungraceful and unattractive and really it was just easier to sulk at home.

    The current trip out with Ligeia was proving obnoxious already but then Tig always found her sister's company tedious. She felt particularly self-conscious on account of the only dress that would fit was her least favorite - hence why she had had it let out last time, she had no intention of wearing it under normal circumstances - and she felt as though she was walking around in a tartan blanket. Unfortunately, it had been the only comfortable dress she could find at the last minute.

    "I am not!" she snapped, instinctively raising a hand to her mouth to check. She was hungry. "Anyway, your ugly head needs a hat more than I need food." Tig was completely unaware that anything had happened to her sister's show-offy caplet.

    Antigone (especially a very pregnant Antigone) did always have the most amusing reaction to her teasing. This was one of the reasons she preferred Tig over Leonie, most of the time. Leonie brushes her off while Tig just takes the bite of the bait. Lig was supposed to retort with a simple 'Yes, you are.' but Tig being Tig had to insult her which she didn't appreciate, "And you need better maternity clothing," Ligeia snorted. She was never a fan of the shade Tig was wearing but it actually wasn't that horrid."Or maybe one in a bigger size," It was how her sister had grown which made the gown look unflattering. "But no need to be shy Tiggy, I understand that you always need to be stuffed. You had always been a big eater since we were children. I doesn't help that the child in your belly seemed to have inherited your appetite"

    Was she mugged? Theives don't usually takea piece of their victims clothing even if they were expensive and her pocet was still full of galleons. And how could they possibly steal from her that quicky, without anyone noticing. Her eyes frantically searched for it, maybe it was blown away by the wind even if it wasn't windy today. "Have you seen where my cape has gone? " she asked her sister while eyeing anyone  nearby who might have taken it had taken it. No one looked suspicious though she had taken notice of a woman wearing an ugly moustache.

    Tig was clenching her jaw so tight she half expected to crack a tooth. Her temper was easily provoked but it had been especially volatile since falling pregnant and Ligeia was already poking at it expertly. If Ligeia ever managed to grab herself a husband, Tig couldn't wait to call her ugly and fat. "Oh shut up, you river troll," she shot back.

    The mention of her sister's capelet made Tig finally tear her eyes away from the shop windows they were passing - she was indiscriminately glowering at them rather than actually looking. The fur was gone. "Ha!" she exclaimed in smug triumph, "You've gone and lost it, how careless!" Tig cackled at her sister's misfortune. She didn't consider that her sister might have been discreetly mugged, she just assumed her sister hadn't noticed it come loose and slip off and that served her right. If she had been robbed... Well that was funny too and she still deserved it.

    Her mood would have been lifted by the reaction her sister made if it wasn’t for her stupid capelet. The thing cost a fortune according to her father. Who knows what he would do if she can’t find it. “I didn’t lose it, Cow!” she retorted giving emphasis on the last word.

    Ligeia gritted her teeth with a big scowl on her face. She hated seeing Tig look so happy on her haplessness. “I was touching it a second ago. A mere second ago Tig, then it went poof.” Her explanation probably sounded crazy but it was the truth! “I’m not like you who would lose something in such a short amount of time.” Lig didn't know where that last sentence came from as she just started running her mouth out of anger. "Hah! Maybe you stole it."

    "Why would I want your ugly fur?" Her mirth had mostly disappeared with the insults and accusations flying her way. "It looked liked something that was run over by a carriage and sat in the road for a few days." That was her envy speaking. Her sister got what she deserved for getting preferential treatment.

    "No wonder you can't keep a bachelor's attention when you can't even keep hold of a piece of clothing!" she scoffed.
