Tess had trouble keeping her eyes open, but Louisa McLoghlin's description sounded so pretty coming from Mark's mouth that she nodded along (dogs!) so that he could swipe right.

"What abo ut Miss Penelope Barnstein, 26, works at. a construction firm?" Tess said, and swiped through the woman's pictures.

"Wait-- I think she smokes? Are you into that? Nope, swiping left on her." And Tessa swiped, and wiggled her fingers at Penelope Barnstein's face as she disappeared. She took another sip of wine, but almost spat it out as the saw the next face on Mark's phone.

"mark omigosh  l o o k."

And it was the face of Cladis Perses Gallion that stared back at them.

"n O--" she said, and blinked really slowly, "I would nev e r  throw you. out. a window."

She patted at Mark's hand, and then his phone, and then his hand; and her fingers danced blind to open his Tinder profile.

It took a moment for everything to focus, liquid swayed in her wineglass; she became intimately acquainted with Lola Fletcher, 25.

"omigosh, Mark," she smacked his arm a little harder than she intended, "She's. a. magic i a  n!"

"Ma-- euaaaagh-- rcus Lerner," Tessa paused midway the solemn enunciation of his name and propped her head into her hand, letting her eyeslids drift close. Her head dipped and rose in what could very well be construed as a nod, and she opened her palm to accept his phone, "I solemnly swear it."

"Do yo u-" And she brandished her own phone, black and beaten with spderwebbing cracks across the screen, "swear to handle my Tinder with the best of intentions as any good-" (here, she yawned again) "-housemate might do?"

Tessa regarded the cards laid in front of her.

(the knight of cups. the queen of coins. the queen of swords.)

Thijs; Helen; Adeline.

There was no such thing as coincidence. Tessa smiled as she packed the cards away.

The slightest of forlorn smiles flitted over Tessa's lips.

"I know what it's like to lose family."

Tessa felt the shift in Adeline’s aura; the energies in the room pushed out and in like breath from a dying chest.

"I can't promise that I'll work it as fast as some of my other cases, but I can work it on the side. I have some French contacts who can help me out."

"Wait," Tessa said, and held up a hand. "I'll help you."

"I'm very appreciative that my work is wanted, Mme de Vauquelin, but I can't take any more cases right now. Especially one as large as the murder of your brother. I'd have to contact French authorities, and research, an-"

Tessa’s frowned. "There's plenty of competent Aurors at the ministry. Why don't you ask them?"

The quarter dropped. "You're after my work."

"That's problematic," Tessa said, and her gaze swept over the cards, "The law won't care unless you have something substantial."

Tessa released a breath, and rested her eyes on the overturned tarot cards on the table.

(two of coins. five of cups. two of wands.)

"Have you got any evidence?"

"This is about your brother, isn't it, Mme de Vauquelin?"

Tessa knew that Hel was lying. She turned the cards.

(ten of swords. page of wands. nine of cups.)

"You know," she said, and raised her head to meet Hel's eyes, "Just because you're lost doesn't mean you're losing."

"I'm a medium, Hel, not a psychologist." She said, and then added, "Are you ready to see your cards?"

Tessa waited. There was always something more to come from Helen Kane.

She tilted her head. "What do you mean?" She said, and fanned the pile of shuffled cards out in front of her, "Pick three, please."

"Is that what's bothering you?" said Tessa, and shuffled the tarot deck in her hands, "Perhaps you should go and see St. Mungos about that."

"Settle in, then," she said, and gestured towards the empty chair opposite her, "I'm feeling charitable tonight."
