Who's yo mommy? (For [personal profile] nomorepantiesplz and [personal profile] mightiswright)

It wasn't often that her daddy used the "really really serious" voice. But that was the voice he used when he called her after school that day and told her he needed to talk to her at home, right away, the moment the bell rang.

Trucy wracked her brain for any reason why he might be so serious. She couldn't think of anything she'd done bad recently, and all her grades were good... so it couldn't be her. Maybe something bad had happened. What, she could hardly imagine.

Even cheerful little Trucy couldn't be very cheerful with a thing like that looming over her, though she did her best, smiling as she came in the door. Apollo was there too, and that really made her wonder what was going on. Maybe something had gone wrong with a case, or a client.

"Hi Daddy," she said, and hung up her school bag by the door. "Is everything okay?"

"Her... mother?"

Thalassa Gramarye. Apollo had first heard the name in the course of their final trial against Kristoph, and that meant he only knew what clinical details had been relevant to the case, and in turn the case that had gotten Mr. Wright disbarred. She died in an accident, and that was the dirty secret that Magnifi Gramarye had held over the heads of the rest of the troupe. Put that way they were clear-cut facts, and back then Apollo had little interest in it beyond what it meant for Trucy, and for the case.

Now, Apollo is looking at Phoenix like he's grown two heads, struggling through his shock to even be able to form words. "This is her bracelet? You're sure... this isn't a mistake?"
