Jacques listened to Tess' wish of wanting to study on past Hogwarts so that she could become more well rounded. Unlike many Pureblood families of the stations around the Clements, the Clements were, to their own credit, a little more forward thinking that others. They had that luxury, being one of the most powerful families in Europe.

"Well," Jacques replied, noticing Tess' obvious worry at having divulged something so personal to him and offering her a small, and hopefully reassuring smile. "I think that your Papa will listen if you bring this to him. Whilst not overly conventional in our society, times are changing, and I'm sure the Holmes' would not wish to get left behind."

It wasn't a threat, merely an observation of the world. If Elenore chose to go to University when she'd finished with Hogwarts, he was sure Maman and Papa would encourage her ideas, and aid her in every way. However, Jacques had a funny feeling Elenore would never ask, but he decided not to bring that up.

Tess felt a rise of anxiety at the thought of Jacques telling his parents or worse - her father. She was probably not the best influence for Elenore; she was too passionate and her wings were not cut no matter how much her father tried. The panic came in waves and she bit back her fear to run. No matter how passionate she was also known to be a coward.

The grip on a doll tightened and she felt herself wishing to sink into herself. "No...father is always fond of moving forward" she bit back the sarcasm. The future and progressive ideas only came from Mycroft and for him as well.

She smiled shyly before moving the cart towards the front to pay. She realized she was beginning to be hungry and she knew her grand-mere wondered where she was.

"Thank you for helping me Jacques. I appreciate your time and your patience. I shouldn't keep you from something that you probably have on your schedule."

When Tess agreed that her father was always one to move forward, Jacques nodded and gave a small smile. "As long as our elders keep most traditions, I don't see a problem in us... taking a few modern ideas and making them our own." Jacques admitted softly with a small smile. It was, of course, a careful balance. Whilst Jacques did not believe in young ladies completely forgetting the standards set in their society, he did not see that being educated to a high level could ever be 'wrong'.

Jacques followed the younger witch to the till, watching the man behind who looked somewhat bewildered to have both the Clement heir and a Holmes heiress in his shop at the same time. Jacques gave the man a small smile, hoping not to frighten him too much, after all he needed to make his own image in France.

"Oh, you're not keeping me from anything. Can I take you to the orphanage you were going to be taking these? I have my car just around the corner, it wouldn't be a bother. And, at least then I would know you were safely on your way." Jacques asked, but he wouldn't insist, if Tess didn't wish to use his help with her tasks in hand.

She murmured softly in agreement at Jacques statement. She knew deep down that it would matter to her family. If the Clements were more willing to move forward with society, that was admirable. But she knew the Holmes were male dominated and never once did I woman have any say ever since her great great grandmother Flamel passed. Even then, by that point her husband was the most recognized. Perhaps it was because Jacques was a man and he was as privileged as he could get.

As the clerk at the register looked bewildered, Tess smiled warmly. This was not a regular face at the store; her usual girl would have finished her transaction. Still, she ignored the was his hands shook as she began to add the toys on the stand. It must have been weird for two people such as her and Jacques to seen buying toys. For a brief moment, she hoped that no one would gossip or send out anything to the media about this.

Turning over to face Jacques, she looked up and smiled at his suggestion. She'd think it'd be very nice for the children to see him and see someone else that cared.

"I think I'd be amazing if you could" she was admittedly surprised by his suggestion. "The children would love to see a new face. But...I am rather hungry" she laughed a bit shyly at her admittance. "Let me get a snack really quickly next door and I'll meet you at your car"

She grabbed the items once bagged and when she saw the total took out her wallet so she could pay.
