Tuesday was Owen’s favorite day of the week, and Tuesday afternoon was his favorite time of the day. Generally speaking, there wasn’t much to like about a Tuesday, but that was why Owen had a very important tea on Tuesdays. It had been his godfather’s idea - to balance out the week, he’d said. In Owen’s mind, it heavily skewed the week in favor of Tuesdays, but he couldn’t have known that.
“Go on up,” Papa said. “Mâmân will be here to walk you home at six thirty.” He put his hands in his pockets and smiled. “Tell Matthew we said hello.”
James and Cordelia's son goes to spend the afternoon with his godfather.
Ooh, I'm glad that paragraph was effective. I rewrote it like five times trying to get all the emotions across. It is very lonely! Owen knows that Matthew used to be a Shadowhunter, but not that his parents and Matthew are actually banned from seeing each other (although given what he knows right now, he wouldn't be terribly surprised). He also doesn't know that the majority of the vampire community won't associate with Matthew because of his ex-Shadowhunter status, even if Matthew was a mundane when he got turned. He would know that werewolves and vampires have an ongoing enemity, but probably didn't make the connection that it also meant most werewolves disliked Matthew. That's almost half of Downworld. At this point, Matthew's staying in London solely for Owen.
