staffed shop Shrunken Head Counter

The Shrunken Head Counter

Thank you to Pixie for the graphics.

The first thing you notice upon entering the Bowling Alley is the flashing banner right above the counter indicating that this is where the most important person of this shop is...and where to go first. The counter has the perfect spot, overseeing all the other areas of the Bowling Alley, so don't try to sneak your way past. A little further down the counter, you can find the Snack Bar, should you feel hungry.

This is the place you come to to get your bowling shoes. This is the place you come to to be directed to one of the bowling lanes. This is the place you come to if you need help with something or want to talk to the shopkeeper. But most of all, this is the place you come to to pay. If the shopkeeper is otherwise engaged or no where in sight and you want to pay, just ring the bell on the counter and she will be there for you soon.

If it's something else you need, simply wait for him to come back from wherever he is. He'll be back soon.


1 Round: 9 Sickles per person
2 Rounds: 1 Galleon 1 Sickle per person
3 Rounds: 1 Galleon 8 Sickles per person
4 Rounds: 2 Galleons 2 Sickles per person
5 Rounds: 2 Galleons 6 Sickles per person
Group (of 5 to 10): 7 Sickles/person/game
Larger groups/parties, please talk to the shopkeeper!

OOC: Costumers wishing to bowl must post here first AND receive permission from the shopkeeper (Felixir) before proceeding to the bowling lanes.

Kevin rubbed his hands together as he walked around the counter, his eyes darting around the shop one last time. Right. Today was THE DAY! The day the last couple of weeks of hard week would finally pay off. Today the shop would be opened. Today LOTS of women people would just file in here, ready to be amazed by him the amazing things they could do in here. Like, say, bowling. And...eating. And...more bowling.

It was going to be AMAZING!

Only where was everyone? He had unlocked the door a couple of minutes ago - okay 3 to be exact - and there was absolutely NOBODY in here. There had been enough advertisement right? Of course there was. People were probably just too intimidated by the awesomeness of this place to come in. Maybe he should've hired a couple of actors to pretend to be enjoying themselves - not that there would be any PRETENDING once they were in HERE - so that others would join them.

Huh. Well, it was too late to do that now. So all he could do was be patient and wait.

He could do that.

He was good at being patient.

...

...

...okay, he REALLY was NOT good at being patient!

"I can do that," He agreed, though now he was thinking about what her reasons could be for accepting. Rafa had honestly been so focused on his own that he never even considered any reasons of hers.

A curious glance was cast her way as he moved forward to draw open the door, allowing her to enter the new establishment first. "... At some point." Maybe. He was almost certain she would be put out by his reasons. "So Caedwyn, what is it that you enjoy doing?"
"Cade, please." She slipped through the door and headed directly for the counter and the eager-looking man waiting behind it. Merlin... was no one else here yet? It was such a fine looking place, too. All shiny and new.

"What do I enjoy? Perhaps I work too much, but I'm terribly out of practice at having hobbies since I came to work at the Ministry. We... I went through an outdoor activity phase... camping and hiking and the like, but it's been several years. I'm not sure I even know where my tent is stored." She might have thrown it out when she moved to London, to be honest.

With Kurumi's seventh and final term looming, the Gryffindor was glad to have a little more down time in Diagon Alley before things really got going - like studying for NEWTs. Her and Lewis had been practically inseparable since her visit to his home, but today was special. TODAY she was dragging around her lion little brother August who she had missed soooo much the past term. The common room just hadn't been the same without him - not to mention classes. He was one of the only things that got her through Professor Scabior's lessons and, well, classes and Hogwarts just were more fun with him around.

"How many games do you want to bowl?" Kurumi asked as she leafed through her wallet to see how much money she had. Today was HER treat and there was no arguing with her about that. Tucking a strand of her long dark hair behind her ear, Kurumi tugged on the bottom of her tank top and then shifted her violet gaze to August for a moment before glancing back towards the counter - her cheeks flushing instantly.

Oh...right...Kevin ran the bowling alley.

...


BLUSH.

Apart from Taryn there was no other person at Hogwarts who August had written more than Kurumi Hollingberry, his big sister Lion and Gryffindor Prefect. They had conversed some via owl, despite that not really being the same as in person, but still their letters were too far and in between for his liking. Today he had arrived in Diagon Alley with the day set aside to catch up with her and they were already diving in to...shruken head bowling?

Yeah, after a doubleback to re-read the sign, Auggie decided he HAD read it correctly. Should be interesting.

Entering a tad bit behind Kurumi and taking some extra time to watch his step and look at the place's...decor, the Gryffindor soon-to-be-sixth-year Beuxbatons boy finally caught up to her and her open wallet. "Kurumi, seriously I can help pay. It's not fair if you have to pay all of it. And I guess maybe 2 games?" Seemed like enough for at least now.

He didn't really take notice of her blushing or the older guy behind the counter, he didn't know an angsty Kurumi.

Shooting August a loving BUT pointed look, Kurumi checked the pricing again and then turned her eyes back to her wallet. "If you want to pay for something...you can buy us some food," Kurumi replied with a small laugh. Besides sending him cookies for his birthday, Kurumi hadn't been able to properly spoil him so now was the time. "Two games it is then."

Merlin, Kurumi hadn't been bowling for years. Actually, the last time she ever went bowling wasn't proper bowling at all. It had been at Hogwarts...in the corridors...using the suits of armor with a certain older Gryffindor who, she had found out later, had written that article that she still believed to be true about her being part house elf.

Approaching the counter, Kurumi looked shyly over it towards Lewis' attractive older brother the shopkeeper and set her wallet down on the counter. "Excuse me, we would like to bowl two games...please..."

Awkward...awkwardawkwardawkward.

Or maybe it wouldn't be? Maybe he wouldn't even recognize her?

Heading in behind her, he allowed his eyes to wonder the place. Should he be surprised by how empty it seemed? He couldn't remember, but really it didn't bother him much, the heads would do enough talking to substitute for background noise. "Cade it is then. Rafa for myself."

She surprised him, with her response, and it turned to an amused smile. "We have more in common than I thought. Work makes it more difficult to find time for hobbies, though I suppose with my line of work I participate in more than my share of outdoor activities." It was probably why he didn't mind spending some time indoors for paperwork, even if he did mind the paperwork.

"Hello," He turned his attention to the shopkeeper once they reached the counter, fishing around his pocket for his wallet. "We'd liked to purchase a round."

Kevin was too busy staring after the couple of people who had come in a couple of moments ago and had just WALKED RIGHT PAST HIM and to the Gaming Corner. How dare they?! They couldn't just ignore him like that. Who told them that they were allowed to go over there? Hmm? HMM? WHO?! Nobody, that's who.

Of course it wasn't forbidden or anything but still. How dare they not at least ASK him. He was going to have to come up with a good plan to ensure that that wouldn't happen again. Maybe if he moved the counter around so that it was sort of shielding the rest of the alley. But then again no, that wouldn't really work out. Because then it would still be in the way even after they'd come to him. Hmm.

That needed some serious thinking...

...and he wasn't all too good at that. Which was why he postponed it.

It was only when somebody actually walked up to the counter that he realized that more people had filed in. Well, SOME people had filed in. Four actually. And one of them was now standing at the counter, talking to him. The first thing that registered in his brain about the girl in front of him was that she was pretty.

The second was that she was his brother's girlfriend.

That realization caused his already present smirk to grow just a TINY bit wider as he leaned forward over the counter and towards Kurumi. "Well, you look familiar." Heh. "You just can't stay away from me, can y-" He stopped midsentence as soon as he realized she was not alone. No, she was with a boy. And it was NOT his brother. "And who are you?!" Okay, maybe that was just a liiiiittle harsh. He winked at Kurumi just in case she had noticed. No need to be rude to HER after all.

They would get back to bowling in juuuust a second.

"Welcome to the Bowling Alley. So nice to have you here." Why she was here with THIS guy though, he would never know.

Though, glancing back at the man for a moment he noticed that 'this guy' was the one with the money.

"...and you too!" SO MUCH! Just to make sure the man wouldn't think he was rude or anything and would leave and go do something else. Though as long as he left his lovely date here Kevin wouldn't mind THAT much. Right, so the order. "Of course. One round it is." They'd probably want to play more rounds as soon as they'd started anyway.

He bent down to set two pairs of bowling shoes onto the counter but casually left his hand hovering above them for now...just in case you know. "That will be 9 Sickles per person please." He smiled at the other man with his eyebrows slightly raised. There, now he could show if he was a gentleman or not...oh, hang on, had he just helped him look good? Unless he didn't pay for both of them, then he'd just successfully shown the pretty woman what a baaaad date she had chosen.

If Kurumi hadn't been blushing before, she certainly was now...at almost ridiculous levels. It was the sort of blush that she still sometimes got around Treyen...and Josh...and Salander. Kevin had been very kind to her while she had visited Lewis' home, as had his entire family, and she may have kind-of-sort-of formed an innocent school girl crush on him. Nothing that ANYTHING for Lewis to be concerned of, of course. She was his and she had let him know that. Still didn't mean that his brother didn't cause her to blush of sometimes break out into little fits of giggles.

Which she was somewhat doing now with his comment...until it got cut off and his head snapped towards August. OH MERLIN!! Did he think that she...that her and August were...that they... the thought was HILARIOUS to Kurumi, or would have been had she not been 1000% panicking inside her head right now. Voice, yeah, she would like to have her voice now...please and thank you.

"K-Kevin..." OH! There it was! "Kevin, this is August. He is one of my best friends from Gryffindor...or he was in Gryffindor until he had to leave Hogwarts." He had just asked who August was...even if it hadn't been directed at her. "August, this is Kevin. Lewis' older brother." She had caught August up on her social life earlier...which is why her cheeks her shifted into a more natural and more Lewis inspired flush...plush a little bit of a pink hue to her hair.

Auggie nodded in agreement on Kurumi's plan for him to pay for food later and she just pay for the games--sounded fair. The boy then stood back as she talked was totally FLUSTERED and FLIRTED WITH by the shopkeeper just looking around at all the lights and stuff, just observing.

Suddenly, however, he was pulled out of his noticing of things by the shopkeeper dude's rude way of asking who he was. He opened his mouth but Kurumi began to blurt out that he was an old Gryffindor friend and...oh this was Lewis's brother. Smirk. Auggie looked at Kurumi, his mouth slightly open in shock and confusion but he then found his voice and looked at this...Kevin guy.

"Yeah Kevin, I'm Kurumi's friend from Beuxbatons, you need that for a form or something?" He was going to add an accusing DUUUUDE to that but found that it may be just over the line since he was already regretting what he had said. Where had that courage even come from? It must have come from seeing the guy make Kurumi so bothered.

"I used to work with rescue crups, actually... I suppose if I had time for a hobby, I'd go back to volunteering at the shelter," Cade stepped up to the counter beside Rafa and leaned in against the counter on her elbows.

"But look at us... making an effort not to let work be our entire lives. I think that's pretty admirable of us." Or something. Considering she didn't know HIS motives and was only mostly aware of her own.

Cade generally gave people the benefit of the doubt. First, second, third meetings... she tried to reserve judgement upon meeting new people. She wasn't always at her best, after all, so she shouldn't expect it of others. But there was something... unsettling about this man who was now helping them. It wasn't his perfectly nice smile, although perhaps it was that he was well aware that he had a nice smile.

Cocky. That's what it was.

"Thank you," Cade finally offered, smiling broadly and inching closer to Rafa. Her arm brushed his briefly, accidentally, but she didn't move away. "How about you pay for the shoes, and I'll buy us a snack later?"

"But look at us... making an effort not to let work be our entire lives. I think that's pretty admirable of us." Or something. Considering she didn't know HIS motives and was only mostly aware of her own.
"Crups, huh? If it's dogs in general you like, then you're welcome to stop by level four and visit the bloodhounds. They always enjoy a friendly face." It was surprising to him, actually, how friendly they were considering they were used for hunting.

Rafael nodded in agreement, it WAS admirable of them. Though really, it probably was also.. something else. He wasn't going to think on his reasons for this outing or her mysterious ones any longer though. Not while she was being so nice, it would just ruin his mood and possibly have him kicking himself.

Though, glancing back at the man for a moment he noticed that 'this guy' was the one with the money.

"...and you too!" SO MUCH! Just to make sure the man wouldn't think he was rude or anything and would leave and go do something else. Though as long as he left his lovely date here Kevin wouldn't mind THAT much. Right, so the order. "Of course. One round it is." They'd probably want to play more rounds as soon as they'd started anyway.

He bent down to set two pairs of bowling shoes onto the counter but casually left his hand hovering above them for now...just in case you know. "That will be 9 Sickles per person please." He smiled at the other man with his eyebrows slightly raised. There, now he could show if he was a gentleman or not...oh, hang on, had he just helped him look good? Unless he didn't pay for both of them, then he'd just successfully shown the pretty woman what a baaaad date she had chosen.

Rafael's eyes narrowed and his face took up a small disapproving frown as he stared at the man, hand still in his pocket. He didn't appreciate being ignored, and he certainly didn't appreciate the manor in which the man greeted Cade. Though his look of disapproval never truly left his eyes, he did manage to return some semblance of a smile.

Rafael wasn't going to let this man ruin their day.

"9 sickles each." He repeated, his gaze breaking from the man only briefly to glance over at Cade when she moved closer. "I don't mind paying for both." And not because of this man's discrete challenge. Rafael hadn't intended on her spending any money so long as he was her date. Or something.

Pulling out his wallet, he retrieved a galleon and held it out for the rude man to accept. He could move that hand now, too.

"C'moooooonnnnnnnnn Veeeeeeeee," Elijah could be heard wailing as he tugged on the Claw's robes, both of them entering the new bowling alley. Vickers was staying with Elijah for a couple of weeks this summer and Elijah wanted to make sure that he and Vickers got up to a whole bunch of stuff, one of which was trying out the new bowling alley his mother had been telling him about.

"Shrunken heads seems like a peculiar name to pick for bowling," Elijah mused to his friend as they made their way to join the queue to pay. "How many rounds do you want to play, Vee?"

Cass bounded into the bowling alley and grinned excitedly. She had never went bowling before - seeing as it's a muggle game, but it looked fun. And she was excited to try it out.

More than excited she was... ecstatic? Hyper? Clearly, words fail her at times like this.

"Heather!" The blonde whined childishly as she stopped by the counter, tapping her sneaker-clad food impatiently "Hurry up! I wanna play!" Yup. She wasn't even acting her age. That's how freakin' excited she was.

She then grinned at the person behind the counter, her excitement very much apparent through the uncharacteristically wide grin that she was wearing "Hi!" She chirped "We'd like to play two rounds each, please."

"coming! coming!" said Heather as she tried to keep up with the other girl's rather fast pace. Talk about being excited to play, she was acting quite the opposite. Perhaps, some force of nature had swapped the usual moods of these two.

But moving onwards, Heather looked around and tried to keep a smile on her face. She gave in to meeting with Cass for today, seeing that they hadn't seen each other or hung out in quite a long time, and that's bad since they were such good best friends. " are you really, really really sure you want me to play?" she asked hesitantly. although on the inside, she really wanted to play, but her reason was different from fun.

"The last time i went to a bowling alley, i dropped the ball on my father's left foot while he was trying to teach me." worth a laugh, if you ask me, but this is heather anyhow, and that's considered normal.

Admittedly, when Vickers agreed to go with Elijah to check out the new Bowling Alley at Diagon he had this image in his head that it would be a regular Muggle-type bowling alley-- the Shrunken Heads part being just a publicity gimmick... or a greeting committee for customers walking in. So far he hasnt seen anything that would indicate why such establishment would go by the name Shrunken Head. He was starting to think that maybe it was a metaphor....

"Maybe they're referring to the pins..." he replied to the Hufflepuff, his hands forming its shape "You know how their kinda wide at the base... tapers off at the top?... shrunken head" Yes listen to the Ravenclaw over-analyze things...

Wait... rounds? "Uhmm...." he hasnt actually played this before. Book smarts remember?...still working on the street smarts "Uhm just one.... yeah one is more than enough." he may not even finish all that one round before he runs out of elbow grease..... or self-esteem.

Alleta walked into the brand new shop, her unbraided long hair flying behind her.
She cast a look around at everything, including the other visitors.

She then approached the counter where a single wizard stood behind. Smiling, she asked "Hello, nice shop you have here. I have a few questions." She briefly wondered if he would recognize her as the woman who was on the cover of last weeks Witch Weekly for winning the "fittest witch contest".

Dia had had enough of the stressful life. Right now she could really use some fun. Of course, what better way to have fun than some nice bowling? She walked up to the counter. It seemed someone had gotten to the counter before her.

Wait a minute...wasn't she that witch...the one from the fittest witch contest? Nah...she couldn't be..but she did look familiar...hmmm. Well in Dia's world there was only one way to find out. She tapped on her shoulder. "Hi, I don't mean to bother you but you look familiar..." She wouldn't say what made her look familiar, just incase she turned out to be wrong.

Alleta continued to smile all her perfect white teeth as she waited for an answer.

Then, though, she felt something thumping on her shoulder. She wrirled around and saw a witch. Suddenly her attitude changed when the witch asked the question. She crossed her arms and looked sternly at her. "Yes, I was on the cover of Witch Weekly. What do you want with me?"

Yikes. Usually one greeted other with a smile. Maybe someone should have told this woman that. Sigh. And here she thought she had bad social graces.

She knew it! "Oh nothing really, I just thought you looked familiar and now that you mention it I do remember seeing you in Witch Weekly!" That's right, she would play it cool, she knew it all along and that was all that mattered. [b"I'm Dia by the way, Dia Thriftwood."[/b] Then with a warm smile she extended her hand to shake the woman's.

Oakey had been wandering around Diagon Alley all day. He had been to Eeylops, Ollivanders, Weasleys, and Malkins, but this was the place that constantly caught his eye. So when he finally finished his shopping Oakey came into the bowling alley. He looked around at each of the lanes from the entrance and kept on walking forward. He didn't see the line forming in front of him and accidently bumped right into someone hurting his already broken left arm. Agh, Oakey yelped gripping his cast as he looked up at who he just bumped into.

Vickers! Oakey beemed as he recognized the Ravenclaw he just walked into. Sorry, I keep walking into you.

"Ahhhh," Elijah said, understanding evident on his face, "That makes sense." Elijah was looking forward to playing even more now. When he sent the bowling ball flying down to hit the pins, he could imagine that he was ridding the world one ugly person at a time. The ugly people represented by the shrunken heads, of course.

"One?" Elijah questioned, prepared to start coercing the 'Claw into doing two rounds, but deciding against it. Afterall, Vickers really hadn't wanted to come anyway, so the least he could do was ensure this was over as quickly as possible for him. "One it is then."

"I hope there are hot girls in the lanes beside us," he pondered, looking down the queue, wishing that it would move quicker and they could get to their game. "It's about time we got you a date, Vee. Elwood may be hot, but she's kinda old. We'll need to get someone around your own age. It'll be my graduating present to you this year," Elijah didn't really want to think about the fact he would be losing Vickers after this next term.

SPOILER!!: Oakey

As they were waiting for the queue to get a move on, Vickers was shoved forward by some idiot who evidently wasn't looking where he was going. Elijah turned round, fully intending to give the culprit a mouthful for bashing into his friend when he realised it was that Oakey guy. The boot assassin.

Ugh.

"Perhaps you should open your eyes and watch where you are going, maybe then you wouldn't continue walking into people," Elijah snarled, still unforgiving to the boy who had turned his face into that of a beasts! Despite the fact that his best friend LIKED this dweeb, Elijah refused to be civil.

Really! REALLY! He had to be here? Of course he did He and Vickers were best friends. How anyone put up with this maniac was beyond Oakey but then again who among the three of them was truly sane.

Oakey was none-to-pleased with Elijah's snap at him, so Oakey did something completely out of character. After a month of running scared of Vampires an older Hufflepuff housemate isn't all to threatening anymore. I'm sorry I just saw your face from a distance and could help but figure out what to turn it into next...a platypus maybe? Oakey gave Elijah an evil smirk.

...wait...MERLIN Oakey that was stupid, He's gonna kill you for sure, Vampires be damned Maniac's were worse!

It was Emmaleigh’s second trip to Diagon Alley since her return to the UK, and this time she decided to check out the Shrunken Head Bowling Alley. She was mostly interested in checking out the new shop, seeing as it was new and all. As she entered the building, she couldn’t help but notice how much nicer this bowling alley was compared to the couple of small lanes that she had experienced before. She was just reaching the counter when she tripped, and landed at the feet of several guys that were standing there.

Selina was pumped and ready to go bowling today. Ever since the school year had ended she had missed Violet a lot- posts were just not enough. As much as letters helped bridge the gap, she admittedly was excited to see her friend face-to-face today. They had planned a week prior to both floo down to Diagon Alley and go bowling. Kurumi had mentioned this bowling alley to Selina in one of her letters, so it sounded like the perfect thing to do with her friend.

Flouncing into the shop, she squeaked her shoes on the finely waxed floor. Her eyes flashed around the bowling alley to find the place to pay and set up a lane for her and Violet to play in. Speaking of Violet, it was two-thirty. The blonde, part-veela had promised her friend that she would already be there and yet, she saw no sign of her, which was odd- Violet was always early. But she did not want to go up to the shopkeeper and pay for their games when she did not know if Violet had any number of rounds in mind. So she decided that she would just wait for her friend. That way they could decide together how they were going to spend their day. She just hoped she showed up soon... hopefully everything was okay.
