Default South End of the Street

The south end of the street begins at Gringott's Wizarding Bank and stretches on to reveal a variety of shops and businesses that will suit the needs of just about any witch or wizard. A mixture of smells, from the animals at Magical Menagerie to the potions at Madam Primpernelle's, fill the air. Both the young and the young at heart can stock up on items ranging from a new wand to a wide assortment of different ink sets and parchment. There's even a joke shop for those of you out for a good laugh. I'd think wisely about my choices or words and actions, though! Its cobblestones may be chipped or dusty from excessive wear over the years of being trampled on by many thousands of feet. Large glass windows grab your attention with various signs and merchandise, in attempts to lure you into those shops and spend more money you may or may not have.

Outside several shops are park benches, perfect for a quick chat or rest of your feet. But don't sit too long - these spots are high in demand and you may run the risk of being sat on or someone tripping over your feet. Not to mention that the rubbish bin next the bench near Weasley's Wizard Wheezes wreaks of various stenches of items that have been tossed away. Shame because if they hadn't absorbed the smells, one man's junk might become another man's treasure.

Bradley looked down at the list in his gloved his hands. Christmas shopping was always the worst, but that was how he met his beautiful girlfriend two years ago. He couldn't believe he'd been with someone for that long. Well, they were only dating for about one and a half, but still. It counted.

On his list were names and what he was going to buy with the stores he could get them at next to it. Primpernelle's was probably his first stop since he had quite a few gifts to buy there. Brad started to make his way towards the door.

Esperanza was a woman on a mission and a tight schedule.

She had several errands to run and she was sticking tightly to her list. List-making was one of her best skills, she thought. She had dashed into Madame Primpernelle's as she had run out of hair potion recently, and that was not going over well with her curls. Potion procured, she headed to her next step: a present for her niece. Esperanza walked rather quickly out through the door, head down as she fumbled through her purse, hoping she wouldn't run into someone she knew with her hair in the state it was.

But she did run into someone. Literally.

"Ouch," she mumbled as she dropped everything she was holding: her purse, the bag from Madame P's, and some loose change. "I'm so sorry!" She bent down to pick up her things, mortified and blushing, addressing this apology to whoever the unfortunate victim of her distractedness was.

Bradley was so engrossed in his list that he barely looked up just in time for a woman to run into him. He scrambled to make sure she didn't fall, but she was good. Her items weren't but she was. No emergency healing for him then.

"It's all right. Are you okay?" Brad thought she seemed fine but he might as well ask. Just to be safe. He leaned down to help her pick up her things. He was a gentleman like that. "Here." He offered her her items.

Esper was mortified. At least she hadn't injured herself...just her pride. "I'm fine. Embarrassed though." She reached for her bag and looked at him: of course, as is always the case when one embarrasses oneself, he was handsome. "Are you all right? I walked into you with a sense of purpose, and I'm worried that might manifest itself in some bruises for you."

She figured she should probably introduce herself, but decided against it. Esper would reciprocate if he offered his name, of course, but was a little too discombobulated. If he was indeed handsome (and she wasn't suffering hallucinations from some head trauma caused by running into him), she really didn't want him to associate her clumsiness with her name.

Brad smiled at the woman. The look on her face was pretty priceless, but it was probably not best to laugh at someone's accident. That would not be right. "Don't worry about it. Accidents happen." He'd run into people a time or two.

Bradley waved her concern off. "Don't worry. I can handle it." Her hitting him was like a fly hitting a wall. He was proud of his muscle. "My name's Brad."

"I'm Esperanza - or Esper," she responded. "I guess it's a good sign that I can still remember my own name, right?" Great, now he knew her name. With her luck, her Ministry application would be returned and they would be coworkers.

"I really am glad you're not injured. I would have had to find a Healer and it would have been more mortifying and have added insult to injury." Well, the insult would be aimed toward her and the injury would be his, so that didn't really make any sense. Maybe she did have a head injury.

"Beautiful name. Esper." Brad like both versions of it. Beautiful and exotic. "Very good. No concussions or anything." She seemed nice enough too.

He laughed. "Even if I was, I am a healer so I'd be able to fix myself up." Not like he hadn't done that before. Done that a couple of times just so he wouldn't have to show someone else how stupid he'd been.

"Ah! A healer!" The chance of them being coworkers dropped SIGNIFICANTLY, especially considering she wasn't quite sure of the meaning of the word "concussion." She had previously thought it was a pastry, but context seemed to suggest otherwise. At least it sounded like a good thing that she didn't have any, so she made a mental note to look it up and moved on.

"Well, that's convenient. It saves hypothetical me from a teary-eyed run to St. Mungo's and possible time in prison for beating you up." Esper laughed. "I mean, you wouldn't have pressed charges, would you?"

Bradley laughed. "You seem pretty excited about that. Sure you don't need one?" He loved talking to new people. Especially women. It was pretty apparent because all of his closest friends were women.

He laughed harder this time. This girl had a nice imagination. Sounded like something he would say if the situation was reversed. Esper was all right in his book. "No of course not. Wouldn't want to ruin a pretty lady's day."

"Do I?" Es pondered her supposed excitement. "I'm always like this when I meet someone new. Plus, I was secretly worried we'd end up being coworkers and I've had made a terrible first impression, and you being a Healer made that fear vanish." She briefly remembered her Hogwarts experiences in Potions. Yes, it was a pretty safe bet their professional lives wouldn't cross.

Brad was a nice man. The fact that he complimented her made him even nicer. "A pretty lady like me would forgive a handsome man like you," Esper teased. She figured he probably had a significant other, but this flirting was intended to be harmless - he was easy to talk to. Granted, Es founded most people easy to talk to, but Brad was especially so.

Brad nodded. He couldn't help but chuckle a little at her explanation. He was very thankful he never cared what anyone else thought of him. "Even if there was a chance we'd work together, I'd never hold it against you. Not a first impression type of guy." They were helpful, but often false.

Bradley smirked. He was used to being flirted with and flirting was harmless. Nothing wrong with a little bit every now and then. Made life more interesting. "And I'm glad a pretty lady like you wouldn't."

"Well, I guess I got lucky this time." Esper would have never forgiven herself for ruining a potential friendship with a poor first impression. Usually she presented herself well, but she could think of a few instances where she had embarrassed herself and was unable to get out of it. Ah, well. C'est la vie -- such is life.

She smiled. "I'm sorry if I happened to interrupt your undoubtedly busy schedule beyond repair." Esper thought back to her own abandoned agenda which had previously been bothering her...but shopping could wait for a while.

Bradley smiled. "People put too much stock in that sort of thing." He shifted his weight a bit. "So where are you hoping to work in the ministry?" He was curious. Or nosey. Whichever adjective you prefer.

He waved it off. "Was just doing some Christmas shopping. Nothing majorly important." Not to mention any second he could spare going in the beauty shop would be a good thing.

As one of the people who often put too much stock in first impressions, Esperanza decided to remain silent on that point. But she was happy to discuss the Ministry! "I'd like to work in the Minister's office, I think. Maybe as a secretary or an assistant or something in Human Resources...although there are jobs in that capacity in all of the departments, I suppose." Esper smiled. "Nothing majorly exciting, but I'd like a job with advancement opportunities, and I'm sure the Minister's office is full of those." Even as a receptionist, there would be lots of chances to make connections. "But for now, it's a waiting game."

"Well, I'm glad it wasn't anything major," Es responded. "Personally, I try to get present shopping done as early as possible, to avoid the crowds. But you're sure you're not going into Primpernelle's for yourself?" she teased.

Brad nodded. So he probably wouldn't see her too much then if that's where she ended up. Just when she walked passed the Healer's Station in the Atrium, if even that. "Yeah there's a lot of those." He nodded. "I can imagine. Work your way up from the bottom there." He smiled. "Shouldn't be too much longer."

Brad sighed. "Yeah I'm awful at waiting until the last minute. I'm positive." Even though if they had something that would put off aging he might look into it. Didn't need anymore grey hairs or any wrinkles showing up.

Esperanza considered for half a second that it might be more impressive to Brad had she said she had applied for a high-level job, as an Auror or an Unspeakable, maybe. However, it probably wouldn't be worth it to get caught up in that lie, considering she'd probably see him most mornings as she came into work. "I'm hoping to one day be an Advisor to the Minister, but I'm sure they like the advisors to have more experience than working in a muggle flower shop." It would certainly improve the efficacy of the government if experience was a necessary requirement for its higher-level employees.

"Well, I'm glad you waited to shop. If you hadn't, it might have been weeks before I bumped into you and embarrassed myself." Es considered winking to punctuate her statement, but merely smiled up at Brad instead. Hmm...did the Ministry Healers need a receptionist? Not that she would take that job over working in the Minister's office, she was just...curious. That's the word.

Brad nodded. "That's a good dream to have." He smiled. "Sure that might not be enough experience, but working in the office everyday is sure to get you some know how of how everything works." Because she would be dealing with documents from all over the ministry and the world.

Bradley laughed. "I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of me. The healers area is set up in the atrium of the ministry. Mostly everyone walks past me on a daily basis." It was nice for people watching. Very nice.

Talking about her future career only made her more apprehensive about the status of her application. "But if I'm not hired in that office, I'll be fine, and happy to work wherever. Whatever happens, happens." This was mainly to reassure and remind herself. "Besides, I'm just excited to have a real job!"

She was glad she would be (hopefully) seeing him often. "Not to mention any injuries that you might have to heal on me." Esper laughed. She wasn't usually clumsy, but she had tripped over him...maybe that fall was the beginning of a new era of klutziness for her.

Chelle was walking down the street, pausing when she first met her husband. She smiled thinking back to the goofball she met. The flowers he gave her and the triplets balloon animals. She looked down at their son Brendan and smiled as he walked around. He was growing up to fast... he was close to three years old. It kinda saddened her, to know her last little one was already so old. Admittedly it wasn't that old, but to her, her little one might as well be off too Hogwarts already.

Now it was time for Mackenna to babysit her stupid four year old sister. Well, adopted sister. But still, her day ended too early for the nineteen year olds liking. But whatever. She had everything she needed and then some and had a lot of material to prank her family. Yeah, she was an evil older sister. And the black haired girl realized she really didn't care. As long as she wasn't hurting anyone it didn't matter right? Probably not.

Anyway, there was her dad and her little four year old twerp sister. Taking the child into her arms and bouncing the toddler gently for a few seconds, she pretended to listen to whatever her father said about .... something and then nodded and walked away. Time for a day trip to Diagon Alley. Because apparently this kid was precious and wasn't allowed to be in Knockturn alley. Totally opposite of the older girl. But whatever.

"Where do you want to go? Want candy?" Upon nodding, Mackenna attempted to pick up all of the bags with the hand that wasn't holding the child. Okay, child sized weights were not the best idea, despite what her mom jokingly said. Could the kid walk? Well, the black haired girl knew she ~could~ but wouldn't. Anyway, it was time to start the rest of the journey before naptime rolled around. Which wouldn't be very long judging on the fact that the little blonde kid was rubbing her eyes now.

Cassidy made it all the way down to the south end of the street, and she had to admit - if only to herself, Diagon Alley did have it's charms. This by no means changed her feelings, it merely meant that she was accepting of her situation. She could be pretty persuasive, but it just wouldn't work this time. She was attending Hogwarts come the end of the summer, and that was that.

Well, that was about enough exploring for her. She got the idea. North end to south end, lots of boring shops with supplies. She'd get around to those. Cass was starting to feel bored, and... lonely? She didn't like that. She never did these sorts of things alone. Another reason she wasn't too fond of being transferred to Hogwarts in her FIFTH year. She felt like a first year again.

Well, she needed to fix that. Fast. She'd just have to make some new friends the same way she had in the past. With her confidence and charm. Maybe she'd even meet a cute boy or two. Cassidy turned to admire her curly, brown hair in a near by shop window and smiled.

Apparating to the Leaky Cauldron, Medea made her way down towards the south end of the Alley, thanking Merlin and all his cousins that she was able to arrive here in one piece. With her metal spider clinging upon her shoulder, she let her bag drop to the floor just before she plopped down on one of the park benches. Today was another one of the exciting days!

It was also early. So. Early. Stifling a yawn, she tucked her feet under her and slowly closed her eyes.

Meditating, of course. While waiting.


OOC: Hello everyone! This gathering is starting a little late, though we'll be continuing into the Field Trip thread around August 15th.

It took him an hour to convince his mother and sister to let him walk through Diagon Alley alone to the meet up for the trip. When they finally agreed to let him floo to the alley and go on his own he was quick to grab his things and GO! sure, he knew they missed him and it was hard with no communication for six months but if he had to hear them nag at him one more time! It wasn't going to be pretty. The trip came at a perfect time and he couldn't wait. With his bag over his shoulders he walked to the south end of the street and stretcheeed as he saw the professor. "Morning!" fine morning wasn't it?! he thought so.

Vinnie skipped down Diagon Alley happily, she was so excited for this field trip. It was gonna be good. It was gonna be her first field trip and she had packed what seemed to be her whole wardrobe. But then again she needed clothes...right?!

Even though it was very early in the morning the brunette didnt mind. Usually she wasnt so excited about getting up this early but today, nothing seemed to destroy her good mood.The only downside to this trip was that Jun wasnt coming...that was really a downside. But she was gonna send him a card every day.Yup.


Reaching the south end the Slytherin waved at the Professor and at Jeremiah. "Good Morning, Professor Ramonos", she smiled, "aaaand morning Jeremiah."
