Tobias hadn’t wanted children. That was one of the few things he’d made clear to Eileen when they started seeing each other. He didn’t want children. He didn’t want the responsibility. He didn’t want the trouble. He didn’t want the burden.
Eileen had done everything she could to make sure that she wouldn’t have a child. But contraceptive potions stopped working after being taken consistently for several years in a row, and muggle means were unreliable at best, ineffective at worst. Nineteen years Eileen was able to keep her family regulated to two. The twentieth year, she wasn’t as lucky.
