    Evelyn had been a dear throughout her heartbreak with Reuben Crouch. She’d treated her with kindness that Ellory was sure their mother wouldn’t have spared for her. If Olivia had still been alive, she would have likely punished Ellory for what had happened. She’d blame her for being stupid enough to get herself in that situation and then likely tortured her again. Or kill her. What use was to her a daughter who couldn’t be sensible enough to keep herself from such a mess?

    That being said, when Evey informed her of the course of action she’d taken, Ellory had been conflicted.

    "I have told Mr. Aldous and Mr. Roman Crouch of their brother's vile deeds, and enclosed a copy of the letter as evidence. They have been firmly instructed to think long and hard about his continued place within their family"

    That was a bit dire, wasn’t it? She was angry at Reuben Crouch, for having used her and broken her heart like that, but she’d never be the sort of person to actually want another person harm. This was why she’d been a popular prefect and Head Girl - she’d never had the heart to hand out the tough punishments.

    She wasn’t sure if she wanted for him to be disowned. And what if the Crouches were as ruthless as the Lestranges regarding those things and took more drastic measures? She’d wanted for Reuben Crouch to be hexed and punched by Regan, but she didn’t want for him to be Crucio’d or worse, murdered.

    She didn’t have the heart to share those hesitations to Evey, though. If anything, she felt guilty for how ungrateful she was being. Evey had been so kind and supportive when she could have easily punished her harshly for her foolishness and here she was questioning her help.

    Reuben’s letter didn’t help with her guilt.

    She’d considered throwing it away. She’d been this close to throwing it away ever since she’d found it on her desk that morning. In the end, her guilt won and she opened it.

    He was being shipped off to Canada. So Evelyn’s letter to his brothers had bore fruit. They had removed him from his family. He was being shipped off to another continent. And he was angry at her and Ellory couldn’t help but feel like a child being lectured for something she had done.

    Two different sets of guilt pulled at her on each side. On one hand, she was guilty for Reuben Crouch. On the other, she was guilty for feeling guilty about that. She was ungrateful. An ungrateful, foolish girl. Evey had supported her and helped her and Ellory couldn’t appreciate it. Would Reuben Crouch even feel remorseful if the roles were reversed? If she had been disowned?

    Here he was, wishing her to end up happy with Ned.

    No, no, no. She couldn’t allow him to get in her head and heart again. She hated herself for being so pathetic and weak. He had brought this upon himself. It wasn’t like Evey had sent his brothers anything that he hadn’t written. He was just trying to manipulate her, to make her feel guilty, because this was all he could do to harm her now. She couldn’t allow him to control her again. She’d already allowed for that to happen way too many times.
