Here at the Leaky Cauldron things can get pretty busy, and, for Louisa, this is exactly the case. For this purpose, a few changes have been made and now customers may come to the counter to place their orders, so as to keep the chaos down and keep things less hectic for the busy workers and their customers.

In the center of the room sits the baby of the Leaky Cauldron - baby grand piano that is. It is not unusual to enter the Leaky Cauldron and see costumers playing away at the piano. However, this piano is widely special, even for the Wizarding World. Years ago, Ryoma, former owner Harley's partner, built it by hand and therefore as one plays each key the ivory gives off a little puff of colored smoke that rises up into the air and form shapes that begin to tell a story to the music.

Off to the side of the room, a cozy fireplace and seating area can be found for those looking to relax a bit before heading off to the busy shops of Diagon Alley. At various times throughout the day, Louisa will drop by with a tray of assorted snacks for those sitting by the fireplace to enjoy.

OOC: Please do NOT RP for Louisa. Doing so will cause your post to be edited or deleted depending on the severity. The piano is free for all to use so have fun with that and enjoy yourself. Also, please remember that Louisa does NOT take orders at the tables. You must go the Bar and Service Counter for that.

And a very IMPORTANT warning. Please please PLEASE make sure you have read all SS rules - especially those involving drinking. There will be a zero tolerance policy in regards to this rule.

Jorge never typically went out after work, no, on a typical day he left the office late and went straight home to his family. This time of year was trying though, with his son's birthday coming up and knowing he would soon be eleven and off with his daughter to school he was feeling old and missing his daughter while she was off at school. He thought about a vacation to Brazil soon and making a priority to visit her on a possible weekend, but he knew his daughter was getting older and wanted to be with her friends more.

When Simon had asked him to get a drink Jorge decided to go, owling Mariel to make sure she knew he would be late and it was sort of work-related he headed over to the Cauldron.


As he walked in he noticed it was a bit busy, but the after-work crowd was showing they had been deserving a stop as well. Weaving in and out of people Jorge finally made it to a few seats that he thought would work out well. Taking one of them and draping a jacket over the other to save it for Simon he started looking to see what he may want.

Simon definitely had a pep in his step as he made his way into the pub to meet Jorge. Why wouldn't he? It was a GREAT day, after all! His usually chipper demeanor had made its way back to him weeks ago. Not long after his outburst in the Prophet meeting, in fact.

Pausing to look around for his friend and editor, Simon grinned when he spotted him and drug a hand through his curls before moving along to sit beside him. "Hey, mate! Thanks for meetin me!" he called out before clapping him on the shoulder. "Drinks are on me, by the way. We're celebrating my good news," he added with an even bigger grin.

Was he going to ask?! He could wait until he did! And for now his very important hand... and that very important finger was out of view. Hehe.

He had just sat down when is journalist came in and if Jorge didn't know any better he would have thought someone had gave him an energy potion. The man always had a bit of energy, but today something was different he was even more pepped up and Jorge raised a brow as he greeted him. "I didn't want to pass up a moment to relax." He knew he had to get home to the family, but one was allowed to indulge in the after-work things once in a while.

He was getting their drinks, well Jorge might try to fight that later, but for now he just nodded and ordered his usual. "This must be some great news, what's going on?" He didn't find a better job or anything right? That would be great news for him, but horrible news for Jorge.

Speaking of other jobs he had to get to the magazine and see how things were going, since taking on the editor position he had left everything up to Winter to do, the woman was amazing at her job, but he liked to stop in just to check on things. "Thanks for inviting me out. Haven't done this in some time. "

Kyle had gotten out of his class early but instead of heading home he decided to head to Diagon Alley to do some shopping, he wanted to get something for Rachel just to surprise her, but he wasn't sure what. Should it be something for their apartment, maybe a pet, or possibly just some jewelry?


While he was thinking about it he decided to head into the Leaky for a quick drink. He hadn't been there in a while and figured why not. So heading to the bar he gave his order and found a seat. As he sat there thinking about what to get his girlfriend he noticed a raffle sign, well that was cool. The World Cup and staying right in the middle of it all. He knew he lived close, but why not try to win, a staycation could be fun.


Knowing the first set of matches were still months away, Kyle couldn't help but get excited thinking about all the Quidditch that would be played clear through the summer. He grabbed an entry form and filled it out.

SPOILER!!: Entry Form

Name:Kyle Bayless
Date of birth: 2079
Favorite Quidditch team: (will not be used to determine a winner, only for gift merchandise selection) Catapults
Why you should win: It would be a great opportunity to be right in the middle of all the excitement.

Lucy had just finished up doing some much-needed inventory in the stockroom and decided to take a quick lap around the seating area. Her staff was top notch, but it always made her feel better to roam about as often as possible. She loved her customers and wanted them to know she was there and available should anything come up.

After passing the counter, she caught sight of a man entering the raffle, and a bright smile spread across her face. She hoped many more would come and enter before the big event. “Good luck to you, young man. Are you excited about the Quidditch World Cup?” She didn’t want to assume he was a fan. It wasn’t a rule and she was sure she would get at least a few entries from folks that simply wanted a vacation.

Delyth couldn’t help but smile as she entered the old establishment, he blonde locks sitting somewhat dishevelled on her shoulders. It had been so long since she’d last been here and yet, it all seemed so familiar, almost like riding a bike. All except for a new sign advertising some sort of raffle. Taking a form silently, sat at the nearest table and filled it out, her mind wandering to who she’d invite if she won. No one. That was the honest truth. All of her family were across the globe and here she was, alone in the bar.

Sliding the completed form into the wooden box, she stood, eyes roaming the bar, undecided on what to do next. Go and buy a drink? Or maybe have some food. Decisions.

While taking her stroll around the seating area to check on customers, Lucy noticed a young lady entering the raffle. She waited until the lady dropped her entry form in before approaching her. "Good day and best of luck to you." She had a soft grin on her face. "Aren't you excited about the Quidditch World Cup this summer? I can't wait." It was the most exciting thing to happen in quite some time. The carnival was nice, but not really her cup of tea. Quidditch was high on her list and the thought of all the foreign travelers headed their way excited her even more.

With a friendly smile, Delyth replied “Aww why thank you! I never have any luck” gesturing to the wooden box "but it would be nice to go and see a Quidditch World Cup match!” It seemed like a life time ago since she’d last seem a game live. “I’m super excited! Although if I don’t win, I can’t see me being able to get tickets to be honest” giving a small shrug now. She still hadn’t managed to find a job since her return to London and money was definitely short at the moment. Study languages abroad they said. It'll be great for your future they said. Pfft.

“Hi, I’m Delyth” her right hand outstretched towards the friendly stranger.

After finished her work, Ava decided to grab a drink at Leaky Cauldron before heading back home. A nice cup of butterbeer seemed like a good idea for now, and perhaps she should get some fish and chips takeout for dinner tonight. Entering the pub, there was this raffle announcement that caught her eyes. Well.... this seemed interesting. Perhaps she should join and test her luck here, the prize was also demanding. A 6N7D stay with full meal and VIP access to Quidditch events? Wow.

Without thinking twice, Ava grabbed a form and filled out her information.

“Hi, I’m Delyth” her right hand outstretched towards the friendly stranger.
"Well, you have just as much of a chance as the rest of the entries." She knew all too well how the young lady felt. Lucy didn't seem to ever win things either but still enjoyed the chance. " She nodded along with Delyth. "Maybe check with a few other shops to see if anyone has any ticket specials. I haven't heard of any, but I've been fairly busy here with all the players starting to check in." That was something she was going to have to check on. The past few weeks had been so crazy with QWC prep that she hadn't done her usual rounds to visit the other shops.

Lucy reached out and shook her hand, "It's a pleasure to meet you, Delyth. I'm Lucy, owner of the Leaky."

“I mean I guess but I just never get picked” although it never really bothered her. Like Lucy said, it was just nice to be in it with a chance to win it. “It’s so cool that you have this special going on. How did you even get the tickets in the first place?” a quizzical look on her face now. “Wouldn’t you want to go if you’d been given the tickets?” I guess running a successful business limits time.

Delyth smiled at Lucy as she shook her hand “It’s nice to meet you Lucy!" Delyth was so happy to see a fellow woman run an established pub like this! “So how did you come about owning this place?” Delyth continued, gesturing to the store around them now. Secretly, she’d always fancied owning her own business but had always been scared.

She had arrived. Earlier than her intention had been, but Papa had suggested she got herself established here before she made steps in the direction she wanted. She needed to make sure that she had knowledge of all the right people before any seeds were planted and any money traded hands. Renata Marques had arrived.

First stop had been to the apartment she was renting for the months to come, stowing her luggage and getting familiar with any on-foot exit routes she may need. But now, she was stopping by the Leaky Cauldron for a drink and some food.

Her attention was captured by the box for giveaway submissions and smirked slightly. It didn't say that she could only enter once. Which meant that she was going to submit multiple entries under all of the different identities she had. Renata took five entry forms, filling the first four in for Sofia Leroux, Margot Broussard, Greta Belmonte and Giselle Mercier. The last she was filling in was for herself, because Renata Marques wanted in.

Quote:
Name: Renata Marques
Date of birth: December 8th, 2070
Favorite Quidditch team: Harpies
Why you should win: Who wouldn't want to?
She folded it up and slipped it into the box.

Walking into the pub that he heard was called the Leaky Cauldron, he took a look around. He was surprised to see as many people inside since it was pretty nice outside. Well that was considering the fact that he was told it would be dreary and rainy in England compared to his nice and warm Mexico. Sweeping the room to look at the people Alejandro noticed a knockout (Renata) walk up to the box and drop a piece of paper into the box.

He watched her a second or two trying to decide if he would get up the nerve to go talk to her. He wanted to that was for sure. Maybe he should just go put his own name into the box. Instead he sat down in a chair at the table and watched for a second hoping that he might come up with a plan for getting her attention.

Once her form was in the box, Renata collected her handbag and moved to sit at a booth in the pub. She would head up to the counter soon and order herself some lunch, but for now she needed to check her book of pre-established contacts from Papa. Ren took out the book from her handbag, tucking the clutch beside her on the bench she was sat on before beginning to read over the names and locations listed in the familiar handwriting.

There was someone nearby that she needed to connect with, but she would wait until after dark.

Cynthia needed a drink. She had a lot on her mind already, being the captain of England's national team, but she wasn't sure she could handle a semi-spontaneous ice cream social without a glass of firewhiskey first. She'd go join Mr. Congeniality and the rest of the crew in a little bit. After she had time to unwind a little. The social side of the famous Quidditch player life wasn't always her favorite. She just wanted to play the game and win.

There was something of a crowd here already when Cynthia walked in, though she wasn't really surprised. It seemed peak time for that sort of business, especially with the World Cup so soon. But once she ordered a drink at the bar, she found an empty table and took a seat, intending to relax for just a few.

There was someone nearby that she needed to connect with, but she would wait until after dark.
Alejandro watched her sit down. His eyes following her movements. He noticed another person come into the bar. He thought he recognized her from a team but he couldn’t place her. His attention didn’t stay on her. Instead he got up from his seat and moved toward Renata. Stopping just short of her booth, “Do you mind if I join you?” He left his hand on the back of the booth opposite of her.

Conley needed a break or a vacation. And there was no chance of that happening anytime soon. There was too much work to do. Too much going on with the Quidditch World cup. He still needed to find a replacement for the Belgium ambassador. There was no way he was going to get a vacation, let alone a day off anytime soon. So by Merlin’s big pointy hat – Conley was going to at least get a drink.

He walked into the Leaky, walked up to the bar, and ordered a pint and food. Taking possession of the pint, he turned and located an empty booth, into which he slid. Taking a deep drink, he leaned back into the leather of the seat and wished silently to himself that the Quidditch Cup was already over.

The Leaky was always the best place to get quality chai. What’s more, they offered a variety of flavours and Sachin was fortunate enough because they did his favourite masala chai. Without him knowing, it was only a few minutes later after his boss had seated that he walked to the Leaky’s counter to place his order. Drumming his well-manicured fingers of his right hand on said counter, he let his gaze wander to the patrons.

His eyes passed Conley but then he did a double take. Sachin became aware that his heartbeat had sped up and he knew why. His chai was ready at that moment and he turned away from Conley’s direction to take hold of the steaming cup. He was also wondering if he should go over to the other man. After a few seconds of deliberation, he decided it wouldn’t hurt.

“Conley,’’ Sachin said by way of greeting as he approached the booth. Almost without realising it, a hand was raised to rumple his hair; a habit of his. A smile accompanied this action. “Taking a break from being busy?”

About a third of they way through his pint, Conley heard his name called. He closed his eyes for the briefest of seconds, mentally prepared himself, and then opened them to see his Ambassador to India standing before him. Sachin, short of the low-down dirty ex-Belgium ambassador, was the last person Conley expected to see in the Leaky.

He put the pint glass down on the table and found himself smiling just a little. ”Trying to,” he said warmly, although mentally hoping that the man didn’t need or want anything from him. He wasn't sure if he could handle dealing with work anymore tonight. But somewhere in the back of his mind, Conley heard Elodie telling him that he needed to make more friends. Taking a chance that this was perhaps merely a coincidental encounter, he motioned to the seat across from him in the booth. ”Care to join me?”

Sachin wondered if he was making a mistake by approaching Conley. The closed eyes only lasted a little while but it made the Ambassador rethink; maybe his boss just wanted to eat in peace. And was that a strained smile? Maybe it was just best he stop at his hello and be on his way. Even as he thought of that, he could feel the bitter disappointment seep through him like a tidal wave. No one knew how much over the last few days he craved to be in Conley’s company because he, Sachin, had developed a huge liking for him. As in more than just a friendship liking.

The chai lover smiled casually. “Same here,’’ he said in his Indian accent. “It’s been a long day but I decided to stop by for chai before I headed home.’’ Conley must know of his love for chai by now was he was rarely at the Ministry without a cup in hand. The offer to sit came as a great surprise but he didn’t hesitate. He continued being casual, not wanting to seem too eager. “Sure. Dhanyavaad. Thanks.’’ Sachin slid into the comfortable space opposite. His heart thudded again and he tried to ignore it. “Haven’t been over-working, have you?”

Conley took another sip of his beer as Sachin slid into the seat across from him. If his food didn’t get here soon, the alcohol was going to start hitting him. It was then, apparently a good thing that Wizards didn’t need to drive to get around, or fly on a broom for that matter. ”Well,” he said slowly uncertain of how much he could or should get into with one of his employees ”I think everyone has been a bit overwhelmed with the World Cup planning.” Sure the event was good for the economy and for publicity, but it was hell to coordinate and host. And it was complicated by the fact that the bloody Belgium ambassador quit and by the fact that Conley was still getting his sea legs in his new position as department head. He hadn’t, after all, every been in charge of an entire international program before.

”Are you in town to enjoy all the pre-event activities?” he asked, honestly curios. Cause frankly if he wasn’t needed to be here, he himself might have escaped out of the country for a few weeks. But… maybe that was his desperate need for a vacation talking.

Sachin, with some concern, wondered if Conley was looking to consume more. He eyed the liquid his boss was consuming and wondered how anyone could drink the stuff. He couldn’t stand the taste of it for one second. This was why tea was his life. Dark brown eyes moved to Conley’s face, taking in the features he had only become familiar with because of the years of working with him. The only difference now was that he thought these features were rather attractive. “Haan. Yes, it’s been stressful on most. You’ve been taking care of yourself though?’’ Sachin was still in concern mode yet was trying to continue sounding casual.

One thing was sure: the Ambassador cared a lot about Conley.

“Um, yes. As well as to check in on my housemate.’’ A little part of him knew he also came back with the hope of fabricating an excuse to meet Conley. It was at this point he took a sip of tea and let the tasty liquid calm him. His heart rate had slowed but not by much. “At this point, my work in India is on track so I decided to come back to Britain for a day or two.’’

His heart rate had slowed but not by much. “At this point, my work in India is on track so I decided to come back to Britain for a day or two.’’

Conley sensed something odd about Sachin’s tone, but he wasn’t quite sure what it was. His brow furrowed for just a moment, then went back to normal as he tilted his head and answered. ”I try to but,” he crossed his arms in front of him, resting them on the table and leaned forward a little. ”I haven’t made it to a pool in a while.” Yes, Conley was a swimmer. It was his preferred method of exercise. For stress relief, he had taken up boxing as a teen. He still did that on occasion, but he hadn’t had the time to go to the Ministry gym lately. ”Things with Belgium have been stressful lately,” he confided. He wasn't sure if news of the Belgium's ambassdor's quitting had gotten out yet, but eh... he needed to vent. ”And the Minister has been a bit preoccupied to help me comb through replacements.” Which meant Conley was the one picking up the political slack and pulled double duty going back and forth from London to Brussels.

”I didn’t know you had a flat mate,” Conley’s surprise leaked into his voice at the thought of Sachin having a roommate, not to mention that he maintained a residence in London. He guessed it made sense though. Even when he was employed in Paris, Conley had kept his tiny little home in Hogsmeade. However, upon taking the position in London, he had moved into a nice Terraced house near a park. ”Were you able to get tickets for the main event?”

Remember how Sachin’s heart had slowed down a tad? Well, the moment he noticed Conley’s frown, it began thudding rapidly again. He was quite sure he had blown his cover and was prepared for the other man to call him out on being up to something. Mercifully, that did not happen. A mental breath of relief was expelled. He needed to be more careful. As for now, he didn’t let his gaze waver from Conley; every movement was taken in: the way the arms were folded, his stance as he leaned on the table... Sachin knew he should stop staring but he couldn’t help it. “You should make yourself a priority, you know. Tell you what. I’ll go with you if you’d prefer company as motivation.’’ He was okay with swimming though his main sport was cricket. “Oh. I didn’t know about that. Mera matalab... I mean, I’m not privvy to that sort of information usually but I guess I’ve been very busy to notice that a replacement hasn’t been picked as yet.’’ He felt sorry for Conley and wished he could help but the only way he could was by keeping their conversation confidential. Sachin wasn’t sure that his boss was supposed to go about talking about the nitty gritty of the job.

The Ambassador smiled a slow smile. “I don’t talk much about myself. It’s the house I grew up in since I was a little boy after I moved from India. Jorge, he works at the Daily Prophet, needed a place to stay and I offered him. He takes care of the place when I’m not around so it’s a win-win situation.’’ Sachin took another swig of his tea before shaking his head. “Not as yet. I think I’ll look into that tomorrow.’’
