Katka grew up with her parents in the City, and she lived as an only child. Until her favorite cousin, František, ran away, and begged to stay with them.
He landed it the backyard, and Katka saw him from the window of her room. After František explained what'd happened, Katka sneaked her cousin into her room, where he stayed for a day and a half until Ludmila — Katka's mother and František's aunt — found out. The kids watched nervously from the door way as Ludmila threw Flood Powder into the fire and stuck her head into the flames. After a long conversation with František's parents, they agreed that František could stay for 1 month, after which they would discuss it again.
So for a month, František lived with them. František and his Katka spent ever day talking and goofing off and building complex blanket forts in Katka's room. Ludmila treated her nephew as well as ever, even despite knowing what he did. Katka didn't care much, either. The month flew by all to fast. At the end of the month, František and Katka squeezed each other's hands so tight it almost cut of their circulation as Ludmila stuck her head in the fire and talked to Darina and Rostislav again. After some pleading from the kids and František threatening to run away again in they made him go back, his parents agreed on 6 month; František could live there for 6 months, and then he would come home, no matter what.
The months passed, with more blanket forts.
The 5th month of his stay marked František's 10th birthday. After his birthday, he set about enjoying, savoring the last month, as he knew would be over all to soon. At first, František thought he was doing that well, and that's why it seemed to last so long. But as time passed, and kept passing, he slowly came to understand the 6 month had come and gone. At first he stayed quiet, hoping the adults had forgotten. But as the summer passed, it seemed to good to be true. And when František causally mentioned it to his aunt, Ludmila brushed it away.
That fall, František started Durmstrang with his cousin, despite being a year younger than her. At school, the two of them gained a slight reputation with their teachers as being troublemakers.
In their 7th year, Katka dropped out because she was pregnant.
Katka was of age, and there was nothing to be done about her dropping out, but František was only 16, as he started a year early. Rostislav insisted that he was still his child, still underage, and as long as he still had parental legal rights over him, he would do everything is his power to stop František from becoming a dropout and teen parent, like his cousin. And with that, František was sent to EESM
Katka raised her daughter, Freja, by herself, getting a house in town and getting a job, raising her the best she could
