Default Coffee, Tea, & More Station

There's no sink or spigot in this little hole in the wall, so all water and supplies must be brought in from the outside - for now, at least. Still, someone has set up a long counter along the wall near the door, and there is often a pot of water and a pot of coffee bubbling away cheerfully over a cauldron flame. A magically enhanced and expanded icebox sits at the far end. You shouldn't take anything out that you didn't put in there, but there's plenty of room for storage.

Milo came down here once in awhile on his breaks during the workday. Usually it was when he needed a change of scenery or just preferred a little extra quiet. It seemed that not many people knew about this little hole in the wall. Or maybe they just didn't care.

Either way, Milo found himself down here today, his favorite mug in hand. Level Seven might have decent coffee, but he was really all about a certain specialty brand of tea, and that's what he was drinking now. Maybe he'd try to interpret his leaves when he was done.

Megan was touching everything.

Every wall, ever door, every piece of furniture... The roughness, the smoothness, JUST THE TEXTURE OF THE LOT WAS FASCINATING! The quest of understanding why these human creations had different textures was going to be a long one. Where would be a good place to begin?

This unusual activity of literally having a feel of all the things took her from level three all the way to the Underground Coffee Club. It wasn't just her sense of touch that was super activated now but also her sense of smell. Megan's sniffed and sniffed. "What is that GLORIOUS SMELL?" she wondered to herself. Her nose scrunched up as she tried to sniff out the scent. Little did she know just how close she was...

There she was now, poking her head through the opening of the Club. YES! THE DELICIOUSNESS WAS HERE! SOMEWHERE HERE!

"You. What have you got there?'' A long slim finger pointed to the strange object the man was holding. "Is that the thing that's giving off that pleasant aroma?''

Curiosity. Curiosity all around.

It was so nice to relax. Milo had just stretched out in one of the mismatched chairs - the most comfy one as he had already tested out - when a woman appeared. And even though he was on his break and was trying to relax, he wasn't too opposed to company, as long as she wasn't overly chatty.

He gave her a friendly, welcoming smile and just started to lift his cup to his lips to take a sip of tea when she stuck her finger out at him like that. Uh, what? He gave her a strange look. Did she... not know what tea was? And calling him you like that.... what a strange woman.

"Yeah, I guess so," Milo said, still holding the cup up and yet to take a sip. "It does taste really good, so I suppose it only makes sense that it smells just as good." He finally took a long sip of his tea. "I could make you a cup if you'd like." He did bring some extra leaves with him just in case he wanted another.

“It does?’’ Megan ventured to ask quietly and with even more mounting interest. There was another great sniff from her but this time as she approached the man. The idea that she might totally freak him out did not occur to her, such was the intent on the object being held as well as its contents.

It was only the offer made her raise her eyes at him. In Megan’s brain, there were thoughts swirling: Did cups only hold tea? Did they always come in that shape? What is tea made of? How did it FEEL? How did it TASTE?

There was just one way to find out.

The blond nodded. “I would very much like to observe the process of making this tea.’’

No maybe about it, this woman was absolutely freaking Milo out. And that really took a lot because he was typical pretty laid back. But who in their right mind walked up to someone and sniffed like that?? It was simply bizarre.

"Uh... yeah... alright." Freaked out or not, Milo was a gentleman and he would be true to his offer. He might have been giving her a weird look but he quickly composed his features and got up from his seat.

He pulled out his bag of gourmet tea leaves and headed over to the counter where most of the supplies were. "Did you bring your own cup?" Otherwise, he supposed he could conjure one for her.

Megan could not help it. More deep breaths of inhalation followed. The looks she was getting? They didn’t puzzle her very much. These were looks that she had received many times of recent. What did puzzle her was as to what the looks meant. This meant a trip to the library or carrying out an experiment was in order. Megan liked the idea of an experiment to determine the hypotheses that she would carefully devise.

As of now, this human was about to make her this tea. “Cup? Do you mean that?’’ A graceful index finger that belonged to Megan pointed at the object the man had been holding. “No.’’ But she wouldn’t mind having one. Curiosity erupted in her. Could the tea only be held in those containers? Could they be held and drunk from others? So many questions overwhelmed her but at that moment, it was as though she was alexithymia. Her feelings could not be expressed.

......uh.

They were all speaking English here, right? This woman certainly did not have a thick accent to make Milo think that English wasn't her first language, so he'd also have no reason to believe that she wouldn't know what he meant by cup.

And so the odd looks continued.

But, okay, she didn't have her own cup. Milo quickly conjured one with his wand, then filled it up with water. Heating it up magically until it was near boiling, he then added some leaves of his special tea blend, whistling a little as he worked.

"Here you are," he said, presenting the woman with the cup. "You might want to let it steep for a few minutes to get the best flavor though."

By now, Megan felt that she was used to the odd looks she got and so she began to ignore them now. Whatever. They could all look at her how they please. Watching magic being done was fascinating and made up her mind there and then to do further research on the topic. Could there be magic potions or spells that allowed her to enhance her senses of touch and taste?

Things were added to this cup and Megan took it when it was handed to her. Her eyes lit up as a hand enveloped the handle, the other curving around the cup. The warmth felt unbelievably good. It was so good that she actually stuck a finger in the contents.

“OW!’’ The finger was quickly pulled back. “That hurt,’’ she said accusingly to the man as though it were his fault.

Milo didn't give much more thought to the cup of tea once he handed it to the woman. Sure, she was acting really strangely, but he expected her to at least know how to drink hot beverages.

But just as he took his seat again, he nearly jumped out of it as she yelled loudly. His head turned sharply to see what happened.

"Well, yeah, of course it did. It's hot," he said, an impatient tone creeping into his normally casual voice. It looked like she stuck her finger into the cup. What?

Hot?

What was hot?

Was it that air rising from the cup? Megan was immediately taken up by it. She placed the same burnt finger in the midst of all the air. It was warmer than the actual tea but pleasant still. “Hot,’’ she repeated, meaning the tea.

It was rather fascinating. Megan nodded as though she understood the tea could not be drunk now, which she did. The blond would wait but not here. Without so much of a departing greeting, she headed for the door.

Off to more exploring.

Making her way to the coffee club, Victoria had a stack of papers under her arm, it wasn't really a break, but she needed away from her desk and move her legs. With her stress level high and her motivation higher she had been putting in long hours at that desk and needed a change in scenery, so making her way to the club she ordered a coffee and found a seat in the corner.

Setting the papers on the table she started going through the contracts making marks in places that needed resigned or redone by her team. The season was coming close to being over and she knew all the new shipments for equipment would be in soon. Just because the world cup was coming didn't mean the usual end of the season things were going to be put on hold, no she would make sure everything was organized and done correctly.

Charles enjoyed his occasional stroll around the Ministry. He felt it was important to not just seem like some figure head locked up inside his office, unapproachable and distant. Naturally, Charles exuded professionalism at all times but sometimes he just wanted to take a break. A proper break. Which was perhaps why the 70-something year old found himself wandering into the underground coffee club for the first time since taking up his post as Minister for Magic. His son, Ryunosuke, had suggested it to him. Mentioned something about a superior billiards table as well.

Loosening the tie under his crimson robes, Charles was pleased to see Victoria present. Someone he had been meaning to catch up with properly for some time now, though this term at the Ministry was a particularly busy one for them both. There was always something to do with regards to the World Cup and Charles himself would be going to the Leaky Cauldron soon to inspect and make sure that everything was suitable and up to Ministry standards for their foreign guests once they arrived. There were a few other inns he would be needing to check on as well. When most of the wizarding world was coming knocking on your door for the largest sporting event...there was much prep to be done.

He also needed to double check with Olivia and James regarding their progress with the camping grounds. Something else he should speak to Victoria about.

After a much needed cup of coffee or tea, whichever brew of choice it happened to be on the day.

"Good day, Victoria," he greeted jovially with a slight rub of his beared chin. "Do you mind if I join you?"

"Good day, Victoria," he greeted jovially with a slight rub of his beared chin. "Do you mind if I join you?"

Her face in her parchments, she really didn't notice anyone coming in and out, there was something of talent when being a mother, the talent of zoning fully out and turning any noise around you off. Being the mother of four and one grandchild, she had mastered this talent well. So being focused in her papers, she had gotten through three contracts before she heard her name and looked up.

"Oh, hello Charles, how are you?" She began to move her pile over to give the minister some room, "Don't mind these, I tend to work through breaks." Old habits were so hard to die off, but this wasn't a bad habit to have during the busy times in her department. "I would love to have some company, please sit." She would never tell the minister no, plus she did enjoy his company, it was such a breath of fresh air to have a normal and experienced minister leading them.


"Out for a stretch or is something going on that you were looking for me?" Victoria always worried things would go wrong when she wasn't around and this year it had seemed she had missed more work than she ever had in her entire 18 years with the ministry, but now that it was behind her she would be of perfect attendance again.

She would never tell the minister no, plus she did enjoy his company, it was such a breath of fresh air to have a normal and experienced minister leading them.


"Out for a stretch or is something going on that you were looking for me?" Victoria always worried things would go wrong when she wasn't around and this year it had seemed she had missed more work than she ever had in her entire 18 years with the ministry, but now that it was behind her she would be of perfect attendance again.
Pleased by her response - particularly in that his hand was already gripping the back of the chair opposite her and being pulled out - the Minister slipped into the seat and smoothed his terracotta colored robes. Naturally his hands slipped to pick up one of the pieces of parchment nearest him to give a quick look over. Pure curiosity more than anything else. "Just let me know if any of these are those documents you needed me to sign off on..." he mused aloud while skimming. He was pretty certain he had a quill in his pocket that he could do that over lunch.

"Ah well, I suppose it is a little of both," he chuckled as he returned the piece of parchment from where he had plucked it. "My son suggested I find this place, he was previously employed in Magical Law Enforcement, and seeing as I have been here over a year now and have not...it was about time I got myself a spot of tea here." His eyes settled on her with an affectionate twinkle. "It is by happy coincidence that I ran into you here as well." He paused a moment to summon himself that tea and three sugars. "How have you been?"

"How have you been?"

Victoria didn't bat an eye when he picked up a piece of parchment to read it, if there was one thing a mother of four had it was no control over privacy or organization. Children did that to you at times, so anyone could read whatever they wanted really, she didn't mind. "I think those are back on my desk, these are just the final contracts for the players. I was just going over them all and making sure none needed an update on any signatures or physicals before everything got started." She had checked them twice already, but not wanting to miss a detail she would look at them once more before filing them away.

"It is a nice place, I make it down here every so often, I prefer our coffee cart on the seventh floor though." Their little cart had been there as long as she had and it was the best little place that not many other floors really went to. "I hope you enjoy it here." She enjoyed his company so she was happy that he showed up while she was there.

"A coincidence?" Had he been looking for her? Though more people had this term since the World Cup, she wasn't use to that part, usually, she just saw the ones in her department and they kept busy with matches in all their sports. His next question made her realize why it was, he was checking up on her and her health, that was very sweet. "I am doing well, my healer has cleared me to do all activity as normal, so I don't have to lie to her anymore that I was resting when I was putting in more hours here than she would like." Victoria was always one to throw herself into her work, especially when home wasn't going the way she'd liked it to go.

"How are things going with you?"

A physicals. Matters he really did not need to fuss himself with then. Though since he already had a few in his hands, he couldn't help but view them over a bit. Though the majority of the lingo was rather jabberwocky to him, having very little experience with the quidditch leagues outside of being a long standing fan of the Wasps and Harpies. Some of the legal logistics, however, he was a bit more familiar with. Reminded him of the days that the Winged Horsemen were in their prime. Now? Well...now his guitar was sitting in his study and came out mostly for lullabies. "Maybe one day you'll have one of these for my granddaughter," he beamed with pride as he set them back down on the pile. "She is a budding keeper is the making, precious little bean sprout that she is. Will be starting Hogwarts in September."

It certainly seemed pleasant enough, though he was already mulling over a few redecoration options. Some more communal options. Hmmm.

Yes. A happy little coincidence. Smiling jovially, the Minister pulled one of his legs up over the knee of the other and observed her affectionately. "You know you could have delegated a few things to others. We are a strong unit here at the Ministry. There is no need for you to feel like you must handle everything on your own," he pointed out casually before taking a sip from his own coffee. In fact, he would likely mandate as much should a similar situation arise in the future. Seeing as it had only been his first year at the Ministry before and unfamiliar with some of the more intimate details, he was rather upset with himself for not being a bit more observant. At least everything had turned out okay this go around. "Though I am relieved that I no longer need to maintain a subconscious sense of fretting over your health." Though there was more to health than the physical, but this news did please him. "And...how about the family? The children flourishing and thriving?"

Among other more pressing matters....

"I am doing quite well....though I do wish one of my sons would settle down." He wanted more grandchildren, you see. "Please with our over all progress and even more pleased with the way in which the World Cup has helped our economy. Your department has done the sector of the wizarding world a great service in winning the bid."
