BaCC Week 2: The Lovelace Family  
Since Lily got married to Felix, Rose and Violet have made do on their own. They're really happy for her of course, but life was a lot... easier with Lily around. She gave them direction, even if they got annoyed at her bossing them around sometimes.

She instructed her that as a good witch, it would be her duty to watch over the community and see that it came to no harm.

Normally witches aren't supposed to advertise, but one of the things Lily - star pupil in many other fields - has always had trouble grasping is the art of subtlety.
