“ The girls should be ready by now.” found himself muttering as he took a sip of his whisky. This was just another reason he had yet to try and find a wife. Women always seemed to take forever to get ready. Having as many sisters as he did you would think he would be used to it by now. Alister was almost always fashionably late but if his sisters took any longer to get ready they wouldn’t be able to call their entrance fashionably late… they would just be late. No sooner than the words were out of his mouth the sound of giggling and their mother herding them out the front door to the carriage. “Finally” he placed his glass on the side table next to the chair he had been sitting in and rose from his seat. As he walked out an old house elf appeared clearing away the glass. Alister didn’t acknowledge the servant as he made his way to the carriages. Boys in one carriage while the girls were in the other. With as many of them as there was they usually traveled with two carriages when the entire family were together.
It didn’t take long before they made their way to the Lestrange Ball the first ball of the season. This would be the first ball for the younger set of twins as it was their first season out in society. Alister was hoping to start finding suitable husbands for each of his sister’s. He didn’t want them to end up like his twin brother. Alister shook his head at the thought of his brother a sharp pain stabbing through his chest. He hated the way their relationship was but he didn’t agree with the way his brother thought… just the idea of mingling with muggles and muggle horns was a chore.
Getting out of the carriage Alister made his way to the girl’s carriage and helped them out making sure to go over the rules for the youngest girls. He didn’t need them causing any sort of scandal or their actions to be the topic of gossip.
Entering the ball wasn’t anything new for the young wizard but he did hear the excited giggles from the twins. He softly rolled his eyes a slight smirk forming on his lips. His sisters and mother made their way over to the other young women waiting for a dance and he made his way over near some refreshments. He took a glass of whiskey his eyes settling on the women in attendance. He wasn’t actively looking for a wife but it didn’t hurt to keep his eye open to an attractive woman.
