Of funerals and whatnot

In case anyone actually noticed my absence from classes the other day, I was unfortunately called away for a funeral. My uncle Alphard passed away a few days ago. I didn't know him all that well, truth be told. He seemed alright to me, at least, but apparently looks can be deceiving. I know of at least one person who wasn't sorry to see him go. I don't know what's wrong with some people. Afterall, he was still family...

It did give me a chance unfortunately to see some other family members I haven't seen in a while. Bella appears to be doing well. She seems to think I should be deciding my future already.

Ah, cousin Bella. Always with the snide remarks and thinly veiled threats. She's lost any hope for Sirius, that much is clear. And she obviously thinks I'm a lot dumber than I am. That's alright, it's better that way. As long as I play naive little Reggie her and mum can't press too hard. I'm not stupid, I know what they want. It's not like they bother being sly about it. Mum's been sending me newspaper clippings for Merlin's sake. Could she be any more obvious about it? It isn't that I disagree so much really, I just don't care. At least, not enough to put myself in harm's way. I'll leave that to Bella.

And of course, another wonderful reminder about how I'm the "good" son. Why Sirius has to fight them kicking and screaming I'll never know. He's lucky though. Only a couple more years and he can leave. If the prat would just let mum and the rest of the family think he agreed with them it wouldn't be so bad. I mean, he's wrong, of course. But the fighting wouldn't be so bad. I'm so tired of hearing it.

He didn't seem quite well at the funeral. He's funny though, thinks he hiding anything. I've known him too long for that. Stupid Gryffindors, can never hide their feelings. I hope he's better than he was the other day. I do think him and uncle Alphard were fairly close. Sirius said he wasn't like the rest of the family. I suppose that's why he liked him so much.
