Yes but only to back her up and out of love for her rather than out of respect for the magical world (as I don’t have any). I have been practicing magical defence spells and will keep working at these. I’ve got no wish to be eaten alive by some foul creature from some weird dimension. Mother has told me about Hanastrew’s amazing abilities (including her talent for demolishing a chocolate éclair in nanoseconds, which makes me warm to her) and I don’t plan to compete with this fairy. My magical help should be considered a case of “doing what I can when I can”.
Are you sure your friends cannot detect what you are? When you practice magic, what precautions do you take to ensure no detection?
Yes. You don’t think I want to advertise it, do you? Bear in mind my fellow humans would consider me mad for revealing what Mother is. They might consider me dangerous if I used the magic to show I too have magical blood. So when I practice magic, I put on every anti-detection spell and protection charm I can think of. I don’t want any more grief that that already bestowed by my over generous Mother! Yes, I am being sarcastic, Roherum. The only thing I have to watch is when I fly. I do enjoy that so I use invisibility to protect me there. It doesn’t fool the birds in the sky though. They can sense me and get bloody annoyed. You should hear them squawk at me!
