Merope has had enough of her brother.

"You're pathetic," Morfin bitterly snarled.

Merope took a deep, steadying breath. She tried to be considerate. She knew his girlfriend who he had somehow managed to fall in love with broke up with him when he tried to get to domestic and began talking about having a family with her. Merope knew the pain was mighty, and he was probably just taking it out on her because she was the only person around. It was a basic reaction for anyone that had their heart broken. Although, she couldn't imagine him taking it out on their father so it might actually be because she had always been his favorite to terrorize.

Even though, it was only so much that one person could take.

"Stop it! I'm sorry she dumped you, but I don't deserve this. I've dealt with you belittling me for years and enough is enough. I might now have that much magic in me – in fact, I'm pretty close to squib levels – but I still should be treated like your equal, not someone who you put down because you're bored or disgruntled with how your life is going. Start being nicer to me or you'll never see me again," she commanded in a no-nonsense voice.

He hands formed a fist before he screamed and gripped her dress, her feet nearly coming off of the ground. "How about I throw you out of the house then," he threatened meanly.

She smirked, not batting an eyelash. "Throw me to the wolves. I'll return leading the pack."

He pushed her away and stomped out of the room in a huff.

She nodded slightly. She had won this battle, but she knew the war wasn't over yet.
