    Hettienne had arranged to meet up with Thierry at his local after his shift, and before hers. She had just settled in at a booth, and ordered their usual, when he walked in. "Hey!" She stood up and waved him over. "Take a load off, why don't ya?"

    Hettie's brother slid into the booth opposite her with a sigh. "Don't mind if I do," he said. He looked tired, but not moreso than usual after a day's work. "You already order?"

    "Yup," Hettie nodded. "How's things?"

    He managed a weary smile. "Good enough. Rosalie's about ready for this baby to get here, but I keep saying it'd be great if it wanted to hang in another couple weeks, get one more pay under my belt before it comes. We got some things, mostly hand me downs, like a cradle and nappies and so forth, but it'd be nice to be able to get some more things of our own too. Pat came by with a bundle of Yvie's things - some little boots and a good wool blanket and some wooden blocks, so that was nice of him."

    "I got a few things at home for her.. Hats 'n' booties an' things. I had some unexpected days off last week, so I been knittin'. Got a little cardi on the needles if you wanna see." She grinned, reaching for her bag.

    "That's real sweet, Hettie," Thierry said. "Let's see - what colour is it?"

    "Yellow... Figured it hides the poop better." She winked as she held up her work in progress.

    Thierry chuckled. "It looks great, sis. Kid's gonna be little in the winter, it'll need all the sweaters it can get." He leaned back slightly as their food arrived, then began to dig in hungrily.

    Hettie waited for Thierry to get most of his food down, just chatting about the baby and other safe subjects, before she brought up their older brother. "So," she began, as she scooped up a forkful of mash, "you been to see Pat lately?"

    Thierry shook his head. "Not since he came by... last week, I guess it was, with the hand-me-downs from Yvie. Why, is something up?"

    Hettie grimaced slightly. She didn't like to put Thierry in the middle of things, but... "Well, kinda. Mikel was by my place t'other day. He was real upset. Apparently Pat's been givin' him trouble about the channel thing."

    With a frown, Thierry put down his fork. "What kinda trouble? I mean... the kid's been doin' real good with it, from anything I hear, an' it's good for the community too. So, maybe he ain't gonna get rich, but he'll be doin' work that matters, and that's a damn sight better than workin' in a factory all day."

    She couldn't help but snort at that. "'S not what Pat thinks. Mikky said he told him he should quit Channelin' an' get to blue-collarin'."

    Thierry sighed. "I know he was real upset with Denise when she... joined up, like she did. But this ain't even in the same neighbourhood as that. Sounds like there must be somethin' else goin' on. I heard a Channel get beat on pretty bad not so long ago - maybe he's worried over that?"

    "Huh. Didn't hear about that one. Iffen that's what it is, he should tell Mik. 'Cause that ain't what he said." She took another bite, chewed and swallowed before going on. "An' I guess there's some trouble about this boy he's been seein', which he says is on account of the kid's sister... ugh."

    "Mik's seein' a boy?" Thierry blinked once or twice in surprise.

    "I guess so!" said Thierry. "I never knew Pat to have much problem with that, but maybe it's thrown him off a bit too, if he wasn't expectin' it. And what were you sayin' about the boy's sister?"

    "Works in a cathouse." Hettie shrugged.

    Thierry frowned. "That kid's done so much for Pat when it comes to lookin' after Elcina - I can't imagine Pat wants to drive him away. Maybe there's some other stuff goin' on. You want me to have a talk with him?"

    "That'd be real good of ya," Hettie answered sincerely. "Mik asked me to, but ya know. I told him that weren't the best idea."

    With a grimace, Thierry nodded. "Yeah, that prolly wouldn't work out so well. I'll see if I can have a word with him, maybe take him out for a coffee or some such."

    "Thanks, Thierry... we owe you one. Another one." She winked.
