Default Pub Seating


Here at the Leaky Cauldron things can get pretty busy, and, for Lucy, 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, Lucy will drop by with a tray of assorted snacks for those sitting by the fireplace to enjoy.

OOC: Please do NOT RP for Lucy. 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 Lucy 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.

"That's nice to hear."

He watched as she bit her bottom lip, something she always did when she was nervous. Some things just never change. "You look good too. I like the hair." He made a motion pointing to her now blonde hair. It was a lot different but it flattered her very well. He was really starting to realize how much he had missed this. How much he missed her.



So he took the compliment well... That's good. She liked it..... A lot. She liked him who was she kidding. It was taking everything in her not to jump into his lap and just /hold/ him.. be held by him.. it was like the earth had her go through years of being scared and alone all for this moment and it was worth it. "yeah?" she ran a hand through her hair "you really like it? I just." she shrugged "honestly I just got bored one night and then this happened." and it's stuck for a year.

"I'm still in the same apartment you know." she lifted his original glass and took a sip of what he ordered. "just the cat and I." she didn't mind it really. The cat liked to get lost and she just filled the space with stuff... Lots of stuff... It was almost a problem.

Léo smiled as she ran a hand through her hair. He couldn't believe how much he had missed her. He wanted to reach across the table and take a hold of her hand, just to have some sort of physical contact with her. "Well, it looks good and you should keep it. Unlike you, all I can get away with is hoping it doesn't thin out too soon." He ran a quick hand through his hair, messing it up a bit.

He nodded. "It's a nice apartment. No need to move if it serves the purpose." He chuckled. "I'm sure your feline friend is happy there as well." He couldn't help but think about all the time they had spent together there. All the meals and date nights. The nights just watching television and relaxing. He felt a pang of nostalgia just thinking about it.

Oh man, there it was... The physical contact as he reached and put a hand through her hair. Her head couldn't help but to lean into his touch just slightly. It was as no time had passed at all and it was just last night they were watching that old Marvel movie on their couch in their apartment. "Imissedyou" her tone was soft, her words light. Almost non existent but still there. Memories danced in her head as she took a moment to get back to reality.

"I think your hair is looking lovely and it doesn't seem thinned out at all." then again she hasn't put her hands into it yet and that'll be the real test to see how it's doing but for now shell just... Keep her hands to herself.... Before she got in trouble.

Léo smiled and pulled his hand back. He had missed her so much. He let out a light sigh as he heard the words slip out of her mouth. It was like she'd read his mind. It was like no time had passed and everything was still the same. "I missed you too." He whispered. He did. And there it was out in the open.

"Not yet. But I am getting older. I even found some grey hairs." That was not a fun day. It really hit him that he was actually an adult and getting older. As long as he wasn't going bald he didn't really care though.

Oh Jesus, had she said that allowed???? "really?" she wasn't sure why she was surprised but she was. "you haven't had another girl try to steal you up?" he was a damn good catch and honestly she wouldn't be surprised to hear that their was a lady in his life at any point.

She couldn't help but genuinely smile "I think you'd look grey.... Just so you know." he'd be a handsome little Salt and pepper shakers. "it's just an atest to all the adventures you've had In Life, Leo. It's not so bad. I've got a few more grey hairs myself... Luckily the blonde hides it well." she chuckled a bit "Tea, babe... I mean.. Leo... Sorry.... Leo..... Tea... " oh Jesus!

Léo nodded, not really able to say anything else out loud. Honestly he couldn't believe he had admitted that even if she had first. It seemed to be an accidental slip up but it was still true. He chuckled at her next comment. "No. I've been far too busy to even think about a relationship." There had been a few who had tried, but he was always far too focused on his work. That was Léo for you.

He let a small smile creep across his face. "I'm still not ready for that to happen just yet." He shook his head slightly. "I'm not ready to look old just yet. I don't feel old so I don't want to look it. And you can just cover it. Most people think a guy dying his hair is weird. Even though I have considered it." He did take quite a bit of pride in his appearance.

Wait a second...did she just say what he thought she said. He raised an eyebrow slightly. Should he bring it up? He decided to let it slide. He took another sip of his tea.

"I don't think it's weird at all, I mean, no one has to know right? So it shouldn't be weird." another bite if her sandwhich. If he just went a half a shade darker no one would even notice or blink an eye and his Grey's would be covered!
Typical Leo. Too busy for a relationship of any kind. Maybe that would change now that he back home. Was this home? Was he going to leave again? She shouldn't let her heart loose just yet even tho she missed him dearly.

"sorry.. I..... Stupid." it just blurted out naturally really. She didn't mean it. He was her ex. Not anything of hers to claim anymore. Even though in her heart he will always be hers.
"Maybe we can go back to the apartment some time and think about that dye." yup. Avoid it. Good thinking Avs.

"I would still feel weird about going and purchasing it for myself." Léo had to do it once for his sister and didn't really like the looks the cashier gave him. It took a lot to make him uncomfortable and that just did it.

He took another sip of the tea as Avery sat and ate her sandwich. What was going to happen after this? They clearly both seemed to have some kind of feelings for each other. At least from what he could tell. Where did they go from here? How did he even breach this subject?

"You're not stupid Avery." Going back to her apartment didn't sound bad. Even if it was just to spend time together. What was he thinking. Was this really the best thing to do right now? If he didn't get the job at the ministry he wouldn't be able to stay. He'd probably go back to Cairo and take the teaching position he was offered. How did he deal with this? He just awkwardly nodded at the last offer because he really didn't know how to respond to it.

"don't be silly. I could go get it for you." she waved a hand in the air as if it wasn't a bit deal at all. "people are rude for judging you. You don't need to be judged by strangers." life was hard enough without others trying to drag you down into the pits of it all.

"Freida might enjoy your company more than mine." Freida was her little brown tabby cat. She was kind of a jerk but when she wanted to be loved she was the best cuddler she had come across since Leo really. When she purred on Avery's chest it was like a weighted blanket just pushing all her anxieties away. She was a good feline.... Mostly.

"I.... Oh" Well... She was stupid. He was just too nice to admit it. How could she be so dumb. "I... I shouldn't have." it was rude. Assuming that's be okay even if it was an honest accident. Her brain and heart needed to get on the same page here.

Back to her place.... Their old place.... Yeah... That'd be nice.

Now she needed to rent a storage unit.... Or become very well with hidden extension charms to hide all her stuff.

Léo gave her a big grin. "Thank you for the offer. If the day ever comes when I decide to dye my hair, I will keep you in mind." He couldn't help but smile at her overprotectiveness. That was Avery for you.

"I'm sure Frieda enjoys your company just fine." He could only assume that was her cat.

Léopold shrugged. "Sometimes...sometimes things slip out." He whispered that last bit. It was true. He was shocked he hadn't slipped up himself at some point this time. They had be together for so long. And it was obvious there was still something there. At least for him there was.

She was all about making people comfortable and happy. It really was just in her nature so it pleased her when he said he'd keep her in mind. She was always the mom friend within the people she knew. Maybe it's cos of all her brothers and she was always playing protector and caregiver. Who knows.

"heh. Just wait till you meet her." She was the full definition of a jerk cat if she was being honest. Her cuddles were very few and far between and heaven forbid you forget to feet her on the dot. Sleeping in was no option. She was like a toddler.

"yeah, I guess they do... But I suppose it's not so bad if it's reciprocated both ways, yea?" she looked down at her plate before back up at him to meet his gaze. Jesus he was beautiful. She was almost dumbfounded by it.

Reciprocated both ways? Léopold was actually stunned quite silent, which was not a common thing for the man. He took a sip of the tea, kind of wishing right now that it was something much stronger. Where did the conversation go from here? What should he say? Did he say he was an idiot for all of his work and traveling, leaving her behind? Did he mention how much he thought about her all those years? '

Then he looked back across the table at Avery, eyes glancing down at her lips. Did he mention how much he wanted to forget everything and just kiss her right now? Léo was silent. Nothing he could say in this moment could fix anything that had happened. Nothing he could say could make anything better, let alone fix the awkward space. So he sat there. Silent drinking tea.

"wanna.... Go for a walk." She noted the silence... That was either a good thing or a terrible thing with him. "relax some more?? I mean or jot we don't have to... YOU don't... Have to..." it's not like she owned him.. now or ever so like he could do what he wanted and what not.

She raked her fingers through some of her blonde hair, her appetite suddenly gone for the time being. "I.... I'm going to go grab a box for this." yay More food it sit in her fridge and rot. "I'll.... I'll be right back... Yeah." Jesus Christ it's as if she were a teenager and she'd forgotten how to speak around a cute boy.

A walk? That did sound nice. Maybe moving around would clear his head a bit. Make things a little easier. Maybe change the subject away from talking about apartments and things like that. Maybe focus on other things.

He nodded. "Yeah let's go for a walk." Léo started to gather his things. He had a small briefcase, having come back from his interview, while Avery went to go grab a box for her sandwich. Now what should they talk about. Maybe he could talk about some more of his jobs or ask about what she had been doing. Anything that didn't have to do with the time they were together maybe would be the best plan of attack right now. Best not to mess with those...feelings.

[/QUOTE]




Messing with those feelings was all her head was doing right now as she stood over at the bar longer than she probably needed to before asking for a small box and a paper to go bag for her sandwhich. She loved him. She did. She never stopped and it was awkward. It was awkward now that it was what ... Five years since he's gone off?? Six? Really she stopped counting after a while. She stopped waiting for owls or a phone call or for him to come knocking on their door.

She spent t plenty of sleepless nights looking out the window onto the streets, wondering if he changed his mind... If he would come back for her, if he loved her.... But, he didn't. The days turned to weeks and weeks into months and then years..... She was convinced he was never coming back... And here he was.. in the flesh. He touched her face and she knew she wasn't dreaming. She reached up and wiped away a single stray tear before telling herself to get it together as she finally got her things.

She went back to the table. "Perfect. We can look at some Christmas lights. I'm sure some are up by now." her favorite holiday... Most years.

Léo looked over at the bar and watched as Avery stood there. All of these feelings just floating around made him feel guilty for leaving. Which he knew he shouldn't be. He was doing what he needed to do for his career. Besides he was back now right? Maybe they could go back to where they were...or at least start things again. He smiled a bit at the thought. But what if that just made things worse. They wouldn't know if they didn't try right.

He kept that thought to himself as Avery returned to the table. "Sounds wonderful." He stood up and started to head for the exit of the pub.

He put on a smile. ” It's nice to meet vu. Zorry, it took me en vile to get here. Zo I hobe vu veren't vaiding long. Diakon Alley is sdill en little new to me. “ Especially considering his lack of eyesight and people’s tendency to ignore the support cane.

He pushed his glasses up, trying to get a better look at Zita, but they didn’t seem to be helping. It was perhaps a little too dark in here. He pulled them off blinking a little. His eyes still glowed a slightly brighter blue then normal due to the potion he was taking for recovering his eyesight. Every time he had to take it, he questioned if he would ever get to stop taking it. ”Und zomedimes, it's not eazy to for me to get arouShe was nd.” He set the sunglasses down on the table wondering if she had been told he was pretty much blind. His hand was shaking a little, and he hated that his nerves were getting the best of him. He pressed his hand into the table next to the glasses. He was feeling very vulnerable right now.

His eyes were starting to adjust a little and Zita was starting to come into focus, if only a little bit. ” I haffe not eaden here pefore. Do zey haffe Hanything kood?” he asked. Trying to open the conversation. It had been so long since he’d gone on a date he wasn’t really sure what to talk about.

She was trying to understand his accent. She was enjoying it, but realizing she had to listen very carefully. "It is very nice to meet you Adam." He was handsome, but why was he wearing sunglasses in the building. Not knowing much about him she was unaware of his sight issues. [b] "Oh, are you knew to the ministry? I could have met you somewhere else if this was hard to get to.

As he sat and continued talking and once he took off his glasses, Zita started to realize something was going on with is sight. She frowned a bit feeling awful that no one told her, she could have met at a better place and the selfish side of her felt like she did all this work to look nice for no reason.

What was good there? "Oh well I think everything is good, I've had almost everything on the menu over the years." The leaky was a place she had been coming to since they had moved to London when she was little. "I'm sorry you had to come all this way, we could have met somewhere closer to you."

”Nein, I’fe been vorking zere for,” he had to think about that for a while. He’d had so many jobs before applying at the ministry. ”Four years?” It might have been longer. ”I chust don’t get out much,” he said sheepishly. It was probably why he a) was single and b) didn’t have many friends. ”Mein chob can be ein bit time consuming.” He paused. ”Haffe vou chust schtarted zere?” If he remembered correctly, he had been told Zita was a bit younger than him.

He was sensing that she was starting to feel awkward which was making Adam feel awkward. Maybe it was his staring because she was slowly starting to come into focus. Well, if focus could be called a blurry outline with faint details, like blond hair and a slim nose. If she didn’t’ move too much, he might be able to get a few more details to focus before the night was over. He forced himself to blink and look away for a moment. His eyesight was one of the reasons he had stopped going out. Not that he had gone out much in the past anyway. But it was harder to now, the last few events for work he had attended had shown him that. He’d been yelled at for whacking people with his cane or for knocking over treats tables too many times. Maybe he shouldn’t have come.

But come he had and so he had to make the best of this. He told himself it was time to put on a smile and force away his nerves. He waved a hand brushing off her concerns about location. ”It’s kood to challenge myzelf zometimes.” He smiled then, a big lopsided grin that was meant to relieve some of the tension. ”But if vou don’t mind, I’ll let vou order.”

Awkward and an inner fight was something Zita was feeling. Her old self wouldn't have stayed more than seconds, but she had come a long way since that selfish snob she was just a year ago. I had been a year since she left Hogwarts thinking she had known it all and now look at her. She was now thinking about a future and getting herself what she needed. Plus she hadn't left after five seconds of him not complementing her on her effort to make herself look amazing for him.

She, start at the ministry? How old was he told that she was? "Oh no, I don't work at the ministry. I have a few family friends that do, but I don't. I am going to be starting University soon for Interior Design. I had some things come up that made me wait a bit before doing it." She didn't know him well enough to tell him everything about her, so she would leave it at that.

Glancing around the seating area for a moment as the tension of first encounters took over. "I actually work for a photographer as a secretary. He's a really great friend that has helped me out a lot." She owed so much to Bentley. His smile though, she couldn't help but smile and look back at her menu, "Sure I can do that." Motioning the waitress over she ordered them both fish and chips with some wine and glasses of water in case the wine wasn't something he liked.

"May I ask without being rude, but your eyes, have you had trouble all your life?"

It sounded like he had put his foot in his mouth because apparently something he had said or asked had triggered some sort of wound-up energy from Zita. He just wasn’t sure what it was and gosh-darn-it! he missed facial cues. They really did help with the whole ‘English as a second language’ problem he had. Yep. Blind, in a foreign land, and with some of the worst luck ever, Adam was just one big ball of problems. Sometimes he wondered if his mom had been cursed while pregnant. It would explain a whole lot. As it was, he decided to open his mouth and risk putting both feet in as he asked, ”Vhat is.. inzide- dezign?” Pause. He knew he said something wrong and added. ”Zorry, Englisch is not mein first language.” He didn’t want her to think he was stupid, but he was probably too late.

Photography was, however something he knew a little about. He’d worked for a photographer one summer. Hated it, but had done it. ” I vorked vith ein phototaker once,” he said latching onto a subject he felt he contribute too. His fingers found a napkin and he picked it up pulling into his lap where he balled part of it up, and twisted another bit around his finger. ” Nothing very exciding, chust helped vith equibment.” The guy hadn’t been the nicest, which might have been the reason he hated it. ” Do vou like zee vork? Or are vou looking forvard to exciding to school?”

He had been intensely focusing on her face again, although he didn’t realize it until he saw a flash of white, he assumed was a returned smile. He looked off in the direction of the waitress. He listened to Zita order, hoping that the chips didn’t come covered in vinegar, but otherwise happy with selection she had picked. Adam wasn’t too picky of an eater.

And then came the question about his eyesight. It answered his earlier question of whether Zita had been forewarned about his vision problems. His lips pressed into a line and, as he took a deep breath, he answered. ”Nein. Zere vas ein accident at vork tvo years ago.” He had a mental flashback of float-walking through the star-filled room, a blinding flash of light, and then being sucked towards something that seemed determined to swallow him. He could feel his breath catching the way it did when he woke up from the dreams that had begun plaguing him lately. He let go of the napkin and reached up rubbing his left eyebrow, eyes closing for a moment as he forced the memory away. When he put his hand back down, Adam was smiling again, perhaps a bit tensely, but he was smiling. Adam tried very hard not to let things get to him, even if all he really wanted to do was put on his oversized purple sunglasses as if they would hide him. ”It's getting betder zough. Ein year ago I couldn't zee anything.”

She watched him closely, but not to close, because she didn't want to seem rude. Z was intrigued by the man in front of her, he was interesting in many ways and she wasn't really doing much else when it came to a social life so why not learn more about it. "Oh that's alright, I don't mind explaining. Interior Design is someone who goes into houses or businesses and decorates them. " That's what she really wanted to do and thought she could be really good at. Looking around the leaky she honestly felt she could help it if the owner would let her.

He worked for a photographer, now that was interesting. She listened to him say about the equipment and smiled. "I'm more the secretary so I make appointments for him and things like that. I enjoy doing it though and Bentley and is a great boss." It helped that they were friends and he was giving her support when she needed it most. "I'm nervous about school. Hogwarts was hard for me. I just couldn't stay focused and I let the social part take over, so I'm a bit worried that might happen again, but I think it will be different now."

She gasped as he told her about what had happened to his eyes, the poor man. Her hand had gone to his in a comforting sort of way. "That sounds awful and the healers couldn't give you anything right away?" Magic was good, but she knew it didn't cure everything. "I'm glad it is getting better and hope it fully heals at some point." She couldn't imagine going from seeing everything to having a hard time, what sort of things did they have at that ministry. "You still work in that department? I mean I think I would have quit if it were me." She wasn't a very strong person though and he seemed to be.

Oh, home design. Now Adam felt a little silly that he hadn’t understood what she had meant, but he didn’t let his phase him. ”Vhat drew vou to Inzide-Dezign?” he asked honestly curious. He was probably the last person in the world that worried about what his tiny little apartment looked like. Most of what he owned was flea market finds and covered in various plants or potion ingredients. Nothing matched and he was ok with that.

He listened quietly as she talked about school. ”School can be hard,” he said remembering his own school days. That’s why he hadn’t gone on to any secondary education. In his case, it had been because he hadn’t had many friends. The studies part hadn’t been so bad. He’d made good grades probably because he spent all his extra time in the greenhouses and the potions labs. ” I admire vou for trying, even it doesn’t vork out.” He smiled. ”But I’m zure it vill.” He may have just Zita, but she seemed to have a feistiness and sureness around her. Perhaps it was the timbre of her voice. ”Once I graduated, I vas done vith school. Spent ein few years vorking mein vay through Eurobe. It's not zomething I could do.”

He heard the gasp and felt the touch on his right hand. His left went back to gripping the napkin under the table. It had been a very long time since anyone had touched him and he wasn’t sure if he liked that it seemed to come from a place of pity. He tried to tell himself that maybe it had come from a place of surprise and empathy, not pity and Adam tried to focus on what she said verses the warm soft fingers on his hand…

He shook his head. ” Nein, zere really vasn’t anything for vat happened.” Because who would expect someone to get blinded by a star going supernova in the bowels of the Ministry? ”Vith zome talks, zee healers und I developed ein potoon zat’s helping. But I don’t zink mein eyes vill effer pe zee zame.” He was suddenly uncomfortable with her hand being on top of his. He turned his hand over and gave hers a small squeeze before pulling it back, hoping she wouldn’t take it the wrong way. To hide his discomfort, he used the hand to push a lock of hair out of his face. ”I do,” he answered in regards to her question about his job. ” I love mein job.Vat happened vasn’t anyone’s fault.” Well, maybe the astronomers could have kept a little better watch on the heavens, but Adam hadn’t really had a reason to be in that room. He’d just stumbled upon it and gotten curious. At least he wasn't a cat.

"Oh I've always liked design, I use to make flower crowns as a child. As I got older I fell out of designing things and wanting to decorate more. I love to make a production out of spaces. Every place should be celebrated." She liked to be center of that stage, well use to be at least.

She didn't want to admit it, but it was nice when others struggled at school, she felt like maybe it wasn't just her, but really she figured it was just her that couldn't get along with most people or she just didn't feel like she was accepted there. Though she needed to change that mindset, her healer said that it wasn't that, it was her thinking the negative in every situation. Yes, that was it. Her mouth dropped as he said about it not working out. Did he not think she could do it? He had just met her, but soon he said he thought it would and she tried to calm her nerves that had just jumped. "So you worked and traveled? That would be fun, I want to travel." That's what she hoped he said though she struggled with some of the words.

It wasn't until he squeezed her hand and pulled it back that she realized how long she was touching it. That was probably awkward for a first meeting and she should have known better. "Well I'm glad you are working through it and not just hiding away. Some might not be as strong as you are with this." She wasn't sure she'd leave her house again if it had happened to her. Trusting the world around her not to help her fail at every step, yes that was exactly what she would have thought people were trying to do if she couldn't really see them.

"Are you afraid to work there now?"
