Summary: Leandra’s attempts to feel useful only put more pressure on her daughters.

Bethany walked into Gamlen’s apartment, her steps slow. Shrugging her cloak off, she hung it on the peg near the doorway, and leaned her staff against the wall. It had been a long day.

“You’re back!” Mother’s voice was unusually cheerful. She was standing by the smoky fire, stirring a pot suspended above it. “I thought we might have an old-fashioned family dinner. Where’s your sister?”

It took Bethany a moment to recollect. She rubbed her forehead. “She’s – ah – gone to see Anders,” she said.

“Your Fereldan friend?” Leandra said. “Well, she'd better be back soon.”

Mother started filling the bowls. Gamlen walked through from the adjoining room, rubbing his hands together.

“Finally you start earning your keep, Leandra,” he said, taking a seat. “I haven’t had a proper meal in days.”

“We could start having family dinners, if you all manage to get back in time.”

“We have things to do, Mother,” Bethany said, sitting down at the table. “They don’t take dinner time into account.”

“You’ll just have to try harder.” Leandra put a bowl of stew down in front of her. “Family is important.  Now where's your sister?”

Bethany sighed, picked up her spoon and dug in.
