Default The Courtyard



The Leaky Cauldron sits auspiciously as part of the Muggle World, the portal to Diagon Alley. Stepping out the back door of the Leaky Cauldron, it leads to the open patio that is deceivingly large. Once inside the Courtyard the stone path circles around the green area, which is a popular place for young children to relax upon during summer holidays and is also a popular place for, people to lie out and have lunch.

On the green, a tall stone fountain sits and waits for a lucky sickle or two to find its way to the bottom of the fountain. However, the incredible thing about the fountain is the stone is rests upon. The stone floor underneath and surrounding the fountain is charmed to light up with each step a person makes on the stone floor. The color traces the outside of the traveler’s foot and each new step is a fresh new color.

Out on the green surrounding the fountain is the home to a garden of flowers that are freshly planted. Each little patch of flowers is also charmed by the former owner, Harley, to smell of a different kind of treat at the Leaky Cauldron, i.e.. Butterbeer Flowers.

Off to the side of the Courtyard, a winding stone pathway leads to a quaint little pond filled with a hundred carp fish that Ryoma, the old owner, had specially imported from Japan. This little pond is tucked in the back of the Courtyard and serves as a little treat to all who happen upon it. Next to the pond is a simple wooden box with a money hole in the top. Dispense ten sickles and the box produces fish food to feed the carp.

Lucy asks that everyone, including little witches and wizards, pick up after himself or herself.

And he was offering her chips? Sam's eyes widened. It was like he'd read her mind or something, and it'd be quite rude not to take him up on his offer, no? "Fanks," she said choosing an appropriately crispy looking one and dousing it in vinegar from the bottle on the table. "Where'd yeh go swimming?"
Sam let an amused grin surface as she asked whether he had to wear a suit of armor while fencing. "No, no suits of armor. But you do have to wear a slightly padded suit and face mask. But the sabres have a small ball at the tip, see? So, you don't actually get hurt by it." All this talk of fencing was giving him a hankering to go have a bout right now.

He noticed the chip she took as he grabbed one of his own. "Good, you take the crispy ones; I like my chips soggy." And with mayonnaise (not that he was opposed to vinegar). "In a pool. I like to do it for sport." In fact, Sam seemed to prefer individual sports to team ones.

"You do any athletics?"

Smiling, she kissed him back. "I love you too, Gaston." This was the first time she had said it, and it was true. She did love him.

Before she could even consider what she wanted to eat, a man walked over to them and started talking as if he knew them. Rosalyn was very confused until he introduced himself. "Nice to meet you, Lucien. Gaston has told me about you too. All good things of course." There was still so much to learn about him, however. "Your band may have came up." Hehe. It had been surprising to hear about, but she was excited to hear them play music! Hopefully that could happen soon though she was willing to wait.

"I don't think I've seen your son anywhere. Does he have a favourite place to go to here?" Teenagers really loved hanging around in Diagon Alley; she herself had spent a lot of time over the holidays here when she was a student at Hogwarts. It was crazy to think how long ago that seemed to have been! Lost in her thoughts, she was brought back to earth by all the teasing. It made her laugh to think of Gaston dressing like that because it really was not his style at all.

...

"Wait, what? You got a tattoo?"
For half a second, Gaston was worried that he'd offended Rose by kissing her, but that fear went away when she kissed him back. Not only that, but... He blinked, unable to believe his ears. He hadn't expected her to say she loved him, at least not now; he thought it might be too soon for her. The words touched his heart so much that for several moments, he couldn't speak. All he could do was hold her hand, gazing adorningly into her eyes... but his mood changed when Lucien showed up.

Gaston rolled his eyes as his friend introduced himself to Rosalyn and started teasing her. Classic Lucien... The thought crossed his mind to say something to his friend for teasing Rose, but she didn't seem to mind so he kept quiet... for now anyway. He inwardly groaned at Lucien's joke about stealing Rosalyn away from him. He knew he was only kidding, but still he wouldn't exactly put it past him! He nodded when Lucien asked if they'd seen his son. "I think I saw him over there," he said, jerking his head toward the opposite end of the courtyard. Of course, he really had no idea where the boy had gone; that was just his polite way of telling Lucien to go away.

His friend didn't take the hint, however, and kept on teasing him about dressing like a rockstar. Gaston had to hold the menu in front of his face to hide the blush rising; his cheeks were almost as red as the streaks in Lucien's hair now! He winced slightly as Lucien punched his arm, but his heart dropped at the sight of Rosalyn's reaction to his new tattoo. This wasn't the way he wanted her to find out! Thanks a lot, Lucien... "I did." he said, nodding slightly. He tugged the sleeve on his right arm up as far as it went to reveal a rose entwining around a heart. He hoped the symbolism wouldn't be lost on Rosalyn.


Lucien smirked. "Oh, I doubt that," he replied when Rosalyn said Gaston had told her only good thinga about him, casting a knowing look back at his friend. Oh, so she had heard of them? That was a surprise... he half-expected Gaston would hide that part of himself from her! "Yeah, this guy-" He playfully ruffled Gaston's hair. "-writes all our songs. You should read some of them sometime! Earlier this year, he sent us a whole book of songs he'd written, most of them about you." He gave her a roguish wink. "Whatever you're doing to him, keep it up! He's giving us the best material we've had in years..." Was it selfish of him to secretly hope she'd hurt him again so he'd write more angsty songs?

As Lucien turned his attention back to Gaston, he spotted the little black book on the table in front of him. "Ooh, looks like somebody's coming up with some new material!" he said. "Can I see?" Without waiting for Gaston to reply, he picked up the black book and started thumbing through it. There was some good stuff here! He was jerked out of his thought when Gaston said something about seeing his son. "You're not trying to get rid of me, are you?" he teased, and he laughed at Rosalyn's reaction to Gaston's tattoo. "Oooh, naughty boy!" He wagged a reprimanding finger at his best friend, but he couldn't help but wonder what else Gaston hadn't told Rosalyn.

After a few moments of relative silence, Lucien was growing bored and decided to change the subject back to something he cared about. "Funny story about our band name," he said, looking back at Rosalyn. "Gaston had this funny-looking cat that always made this weird face whenever it yawned. So Ed - that's our bassist - saw it and said 'That looks like a werewolf growing into its snout!' and we were all like 'That'd make an awesome name for a band!' I wanted to call the band Almost Obscurial, but somebody-" He cast a knowing glance back at Gaston. "-nixed that idea. I mean, how awesome would that be? To be able to-" He suddenly stopped talking as a look from Gaston silenced him.

Ilana smiled as she watch the boy chase his bird over to her. she could not help, but laugh at the sight. Ilana patted the bird as it landed near her.

Ilana wasn't one to blush, but she felt like it in that moment.

Smiling back at the girl, now knowing her name, he stood up.
"Pleasure, Ilana." Ollie flew over to J.P.'s shoulder. "So, are you excited to start this term? I am looking forward to finding out what house we're going to be in. I've already started reading some books and my parents have told me loads of stories about their adventures when they went here." J.P. realized he was talking to much and stopped to let Ilana respond.

Was it bad that Rosalyn wanted Lucien to go away?

It was nice to meet the best friend and all, but he was kind of ruining the mood right now. Obviously Gaston felt the same way, but they were both too polite to say anything directly. Lucien probably wouldn't have cared much even if they HAD said something, judging by the way that he came across to her. There was no time to reply to his comment about what she had been told about him, because she was being shown a tattoo. The symbolism was not lost on her. "You got one for ME?" She was so touched that she felt that she might cry. "No one's ever done anything like that for me before." Not even - nope. Not going to think about THAT.

Shocked by that revelation, another one came right after.

"You write music? Songs about me?" Gaston hadn't told her any of this though she knew that he would have if given more time to. Probably would be doing that right now if they hadn't been interrupted... And no, that comment hadn't been lost on her since she was smart enough to figure out that he wrote songs about her when he was heartbroken. Sorry Lucien, but she was not planning to hurt Gaston ever again. That was the last thing she wanted to do!

The origin of the band name was interesting, but Rosalyn wasn't very comfortable talking about obscurials. In her opinion it wouldn't be awesome at all. "I think it's terrible that people could treat children so badly just because they have magical abilities. People should not be repressed for being themselves." Maybe she was being a downer, but she didn't care. That was her opinion on the matter. She was so lost in thought that she didn't even notice the look that Gaston was giving his friend.

"It is my pleasure as well, J.P.." She started jumping around from being so excited about getting all her stuff so she could go to Hogwarts. "I am beyond excited to start. I am as well. I bet I will be in Ravenclaw. It is the house I think suits me best, but mum is hoping Gryffindor like she was. I have read every book I could get my hands on. Plus I have been studying long and hard" Ilona said. She just hoped she did not scare the boy off with all that info. Who really cared how long she studied or what else she was doing.

Maybe she was being a downer, but she didn't care. That was her opinion on the matter. She was so lost in thought that she didn't even notice the look that Gaston was giving his friend.
Gaston was almost dreading Rosalyn's reaction to his new tattoo. What if she didn't like it? Or worse, what if she was creeped out by it? This was why he'd wanted to tell her about it in his own time, but that was Lucien for you, no brain to mouth filter. He wished his friend would give up his rockstar persona and act normal for a change; Lucien was actually a nice guy when he wasn't trying to be something he wasn't!

Blue eyes blinked in disbelief, though Gaston didn't know what shocked him more, Rose saying no one had ever done anything like that for her or how deeply moved she seemed to be. The heart on his arm suddenly glowed blazing red and the rose blossomed as his heart burst with love. "Of course I did," he whispered... and he'd do it all over again too! He took her hand in both his own and gave it a little kiss; he knew Lucien would probably tease him about it but he didn't care. "After all, a picture''s worth a thousand words, right?" he added... because a thousand words could never be enough to express his feelings for her.

But the sweet moment between them didn't last long; Gaston's attention was quickly diverted as Lucien put him on the spot again. "No, I only write the words," he said, nervously running a hand through his black hair and causing it to stick up at odd angles. "Lucien's wife Tillie does the music." Really, writing song lyrics wasn't a big deal! His friend's next words to Rose shocked him. What? He thought he wrote songs because she hurt him? "Don't mind him," he said, casting an annoyed look back at Lucien. "He doesn't know what he's talking about."

Rose didn't hurt him; his own fears and insecurities had hurt him! He was just about to correct Lucien when he grabbed Gaston's little black book off the table. "Wait! Those aren't finished-" he began, but Lucien was too busy flipping through it to pay attention to him. He rolled his eyes; he was getting fed up with this! "Accio!" He pointed his wand at the book in Lucien's hands, and it flew back to him.

Just when he thought Lucien couldn't embarrass him any further, he brought up is original idea of the band's name. Merlin, why did he have such a morbid fascination with obscurials?! If he didn't know better, he'd think Lucien only wanted to be his friend because... never mind. Gaston's eyes flashed like bluebell flames. This had gone far enough! Embarrassing him was one thing, but now Lucien was upsetting Rose and he couldn't allow that! "No, not awesome!" he snapped. "Sad and terrifying and dangerous... incredibly dangerous." He bowed his head, afraid to meet Rose's eyes, as bad memories came rushing back. She hadn't guessed his secret, had she?


Lucien was shocked that Rosalyn didn't know Gaston wrote songs; he secretly wondered if she really knew Gaston at all. He supposed he shouldn't be surprised, though. Gaston always had been too humble for his own good. "Does he ever!" he exclaimed. "We should be able to get a good three or four albums out of what he sent us." So it was too much to hope that she'd hurt him again? Oh well... Gaston was one big bleeding heart; he could always find something else to angst about.

"Aww, you're no fun!" He laughed as Gaston summoned his journal, but his smile faded at the reaction to his opinion on obscurials. Okay, so apparently nobody else thought that would be the coolest thing ever. Understanding dawned in his eyes. "Oh, I see. She doesn't know you-" he began, but his voice trailed off at the sight of Gaston's expression. Yikes, angry Gaston! Lucien wasn't sure whether he should be amused or unnerved by his friend's sudden mood change. He could be quite the knight in shining armor when he wanted to be! Oh well, he could tell he wasn't wanted so he quickly made an excuse. "I think I just saw my son. Later, lovebirds!" And he waved back at the as he left.

Braedon finally made it to Diagon Alley. He promised his cousin Colt he would see him but it seemed like he missed him. He knew it was September 1st and he was on the Hogwarts Express. He owled some of his old friends he made here and he knew Cinna was here. He sent her a letter and she replied back. He told her to meet him at the Leaky Cauldron and she agreed. He figured it was a big place and everyone knew it. Plus he was kind of hungry. He could smell all the food smells. While he was waiting, he brought his skateboard with him and he skated around a bit.

She doesn't know you-" he began, but his voice trailed off at the sight of Gaston's expression. Yikes, angry Gaston! Lucien wasn't sure whether he should be amused or unnerved by his friend's sudden mood change. He could be quite the knight in shining armor when he wanted to be! Oh well, he could tell he wasn't wanted so he quickly made an excuse. "I think I just saw my son. Later, lovebirds!" And he waved back at the as he left.
Rose sniffled as Gaston took her hand and kissed it. Not because he made her sad - it was the total opposite! - but because she didn't think that she was worthy of all of this. "You are so wonderful and I don't deserve you." He truly loved her and she knew that he would never hurt her, but that didn't stop her from thinking that she wasn't good enough. Gaston was too good for her even if he didn't realize it.

So he wrote lyrics only... And she had inspired a lot of them. "Can I see some of them?" He wouldn't mind showing her, and it helped that she was asking - unlike someone else who thought it was okay to just grab the journal and start looking. Gaston seemed to be rather displeased by that though not angry. At least he had managed to get his book back because really prying wasn't cool.

It seemed that the obscurial thing was really getting to Gaston, and Rosalyn was confused as to how until Lucien started saying something to Gaston. He was cut off, but it still gave her pause. What didn't she know about him? Was it safe to ask? Before she could even make up her mind as to what she should do, Lucien was taking his leave from them. Honestly she couldn't say that she was bothered by it as he had interrupted them and shared a lot of private things. "Do you mind if I ask WHY you guys are best friends?" No offense meant but yeah... From the looks of it they had nothing in common. Was she missing something here? "Also what don't I know?" It seemed like a lot, but that wasn't Gaston's fault! Lucien had told everything before he had a chance to tell her himself.

Lucien had told everything before he had a chance to tell her himself.
Gaston was sure he just heard Rose sniffle, and he instinctively hugged her. He never would've imagined she'd be this touched by his gesture of love! Her next words broke his heart, though. How could she think she wasn't good enough for him? Did Lucien say something to make her think that? He'd have to tell him off for it later; right now his Rose needed him. "You're right," he agreed... though not for the reasons she was probably thinking. "You deserve so much better than I could ever be." But he would strive to be a better person for her.

He was a little surprised when she asked to see some of his songs. No matter what Lucien said, he didn't think they were all that good, but he hadn't the heart to deny her... especially not after she'd asked him so nicely. Anything Rose wanted, she got, even if it went against his own wishes. He nodded. "If you really want to..." he said with a slight sheepish smile.

Gaston was lost in his sad memories when Rose's voice jerked him out of his thoughts. He managed a halfhearted chuckle at her question. That was the same reaction a lot of people had to his friendship with Lucien. He supposed they were a rather mismatched pair. "When we were in school, I helped him with his homework and he protected me from bullies," he said. He hoped that explanation would satisfy her. "Lucien's always wanted to be a rockstar so he acts the part; that's what you saw just now. He's really not so bad when he drops the act." "I'm so sorry about him!" He added quickly, feeling he needed to apologize for his friend; that was absolutely tactless!

He was still in a state of disbelief that his best friend had almost revealed his deepest darkest secret when Rose asked him the question that stopped him in his tracks. He should've known this was coming... Gaston sighed. This was the one thing he never wanted Rose to know about him, but he loved her too much to lie to her. So he gave her the answer he knew would frighten her away forever. "I-I almost became... one of them." He couldn't even bring himself to say the word. He paused to give Rose time to process this information and himself time to swallow the lump in his throat.

"My father - h-he didn't understand magic - but he knew strange things happened w-whenever I was upset. He thought I was acting out so he s-sent me to a psychiatrist." He shuddered at the memory. "They wanted me to r-repress my emotions s-so it would stop happening, but I couldn't..." His voice broke, and he fixed his gaze on the table in front of him as he tried to block out the painful memories of isolation and disapproval. he couldn't bear to look back at Rose, lest he see fear reflected in her eyes. Well, now she knew...

Well, now she knew...
Rosalyn smiled as he hugged her, feeling better from the comfort... though what he said next made her eyes widen. "That wasn't what I meant at all." She was nothing special, though she knew that others didn't agree with her there. If she was, why would her fiance have cheated on her? "Please don't think you need to be better than you are." Because he was amazing the way that he was.

For a second Rosalyn was sure that he would say no to her request to see the lyrics, which she would have been completely fine with since they WERE private. Something that Lucien didn't seem to grasp. She was pleased when he said that she COULD look, and eagerly grabbed the journal, reading through what he had written. "He's right, you ARE really good," she said after she had finished. Very impressive! Song writing was something that she had always wanted to be able to do, but it was quite hard for her. Nothing that she had written was any good, so she had stopped with it ages ago. It was no matter when she had other talents like baking.

The relationship made a lot more sense once Gaston explained it, and Rosalyn had a few friendships that had worked in that kind of way. Of course she hadn't been bullied... It was not cool that he HAD been, but at least he had a friend to help him through it. "You don't need to apologize. He seemed like a nice guy despite the act." Her main issue had been blabbing things, but everything seemed to be sorting itself out so that was okay.

Immediately she regretted asking him the question. It broke her heart to see him so upset! Rosalyn mentally kicked herself for not letting the subject die down. Sometimes she had a big mouth and asked too many questions! It was the Ravenclaw in her, she supposed. "I had no idea things were so hard for you. No one should ever have to go through something like that." It was her turn to hug him, wanting him to feel better because she hated him being sad!

Rosalyn was not at ALL impressed with his father, but she was not going to say that to Gaston in case she made him feel even worse!

Rosalyn was not at ALL impressed with his father, but she was not going to say that to Gaston in case she made him feel even worse!
Gaston's heart sank as he saw Rosalyn's eyes widening, and he immediately knew he said the wrong thing. How was it that he had no problem putting his feelings into words when writing songs but when he tried actually talking to someone everything came out wrong? "I know," he said, silently berating himself for causing a misunderstanding. "I just thought you needed a reminder of how special you are." then he kissed her cheek. He hated the idea of her thinking she wasn't good enough for him, especially when it was the other way around! Her next words caught him off guard slightly, but he nodded nonetheless. "I'll try not to," he promised - and he would, but he'd had these insecurities for most of his life. It wasn't something that would happen overnight...

Rose's eagerness to read his songs made him smile, but he was a little worried how she might react to them. At least most of the really depressing love songs he'd written had been in that other journal he sent Lucien earlier in the year; she didn't need to read those! Gaston's blue eyes widened slightly as Rose complimented his songs. He still didn't think they were anything special, but it was so sweet of her to say so. Still, he hadn't the heart to argue with her so he simply said, "Thank you." He was soon surprised again upon finding that Rose understood his friendship with Lucien, but he supposed he shouldn't be so shocked. After all, it was that compassion that won his heart in the first place!

But the biggest surprise Gaston was in for came after their conversation had taken a much darker turn. Now Rose knew the truth about his past, and she would certainly think differently of him for it. He sat with his head bowed, refusing to meet her eyes as he braced for the rejection that was sure to come... but it didn't.. Instead she was hugging him and saying sympathetic things. Why? "Y-you mean you're not afraid of me?" he stammered in disbelief, "e-even knowing what I almost became, w-what I might've done if I had..."

The old psychiatrist's voice rang in Gaston's mind, calling him "a danger to himself and others", and the scariest part of it all was that he almost had been, just not for the reasons the doctor thought. He suddenly felt like crying, though he didn't know if it was because his childhood memories made him sad or because Rose's compassion had touched his heart - maybe both. Several moments passed before he regained composure, and he sighed heavily. "You're right; no one should have to, but I did," he said... an for the first time in his life, he thought that might not be a bad thing. "But as terrible as it was, I would be a completely different person if that hadn't happened... and maybe that person wouldn't have fallen in love with you." And he would never trade that love for anything, not even the chance to rewrite his own past.

The weather was lovely this time of year, it was a nice change from the rather humid weather in Italy. Louisa made her way through the main seating out to the courtyard, she didn't have a picnic or any signs of having come here for a nice family time out. She was wearing one of her work pantsuits and high heels, she rarely got out wearing casual recently. After that incident where she had to make a quick stop at the office wearing a sundress and yellow flipflops, she made sure she was almost always in a 'presentable outfit'. She had a diplomat status now, fooling around was not going to cut it.

Taking a seat at a bench, she crossed her legs and waited for her old friend.

Joćo didn't usually come to Britain from Portugal, where he worked now, but it was Easter and his dad wanted a family union. So he decided to take his son and celebrate it here with the grandpa. He had also arranged to meet an old friend, but first decided to show his son Diagon Alley so that he'd hopefully be too tired to run around. The boy had remarkably endless energy.

"And this is the end of the Alley, where it opens to the muggle world," he said in Portuguese as they slowly walked in. Little fella looked around curiously as he nibbled on the sweets they got from the sweets shop. He pointed at the fountain and grinned, fascinated by it.

"Papa, look!" he exclaimed while his papa was scanning the area to spot his friend, and stomped on the floor with all his might to watch the colour change. Joćo looked down, and smiled. He stomped too, and the child squealed in happiness.

"We'll say hi to my friend, and then you can come here to play, okay?" The kid considered it for a moment, then nodded and thus, they made their way to her table.

"Miss Carter? Or do you use Chosen now?" He grinned then, and opened his free hand (other one was still holding Pedro's) to hug her.

Louisa lowered her sunglasses to the table once a man and a toddler walked out. Yep, definitely Joao. With a kid. A small, one-sided smile appeared on her lips as she overheard their interaction so she was ready and standing up when they made it up to the table. "Louisa, actually." She moved closer to give Joao a relatively long embrace. Seeing him in this familiar atmosphere felt immediately soothing. "Hi, little man." She held her hand up for the child to high-five him. "I'm Louisa. What's your name?"Unexpectedly, Louisa was better than she gave herself credit for with kids. Probably because Vashti and Dallin's kids grew up with her in the picture.

"Please, sit." Her seat was across from his so they could have one of their long conversations that always end up in them annoying each other. Probably with her storming off, too. "Also, I'm still Carter." Ahem. Just making sure he didn't repeat that question.

Heh, heh. Oh the old days.

Joćo's smile only got bigger at her answe, and hugged her tightly. He was glad that their relationship evolved into this - that it wasn't broken completely after everything. He looked down at Pedro then, and translated what she said to the child, who was looking lost and shied halfway behind his leg.

"Just like you have Maria at school, I had Louisa," he explained to him, "go on and tell your name."

This was all new and Pedro was excited. The sweets tasted great, and the buildings were beautiful. It was also pretty exciting to be alone with his papa. His grandpa also gave him lots of gifts, which he loved. And although his papa had talked about Louisa, he was still shy just like any other four year old and his papa's leg felt like the best protection and the lady used words he didn't understand. However, the lady seemed nice and his papa encouraged him to talk, so he took a small step forward, got his other hand out of his papa's grip and high fived her quickly, as he half-whispered "Pedro Wilhelm." He was still curious about the colourful stone, but he was going to stay with his papa for now. He sat down on the chair his papa showed, and stole shy glances from the lady, whose name was Louisa, while his small tongue licked the delicious candy.

Joćo ruffled his son's hair and sat down across her. "We don't teach him English at home," he said as an explanation, "Mags speaks German and I speak Portuguese. But he liked you." Otherwise, Pedro wouldn't have high-fived her.

Oh? His eyebrows shot up in surprise. "Not even Carter-Chosen? Eh. You don't even love this poor guy." He perfectly knew that wasn't true, but he liked to see her reaction to that. Deep down on an unconscious level, he wondered if in an alternate universe she took on the surname Neves, or was still as stubborn as this Louisa Carter.

"So, tell me things. What are you doing now? How is married life?"

"So, tell me things. What are you doing now? How is married life?"

Wait, what? Louisa looked at the little boy as if he was an interesting object to study when he whispered in Joao's all-too-familiar tongue. She'd known Joao for over ten years, heck she dated him for quite a while and yet she never bothered to learn a word of Portuguese. "Wow." She caught Joao's eyes, "Seriously? Well, I mean, if his parents' first language isn't English... too bad I won't be able to tell him about his naughty father." That was a joke, she had a mischievous smile as she said that.

See, her joke was nice and funny. His joke was bad and already making her want to slap his arm. "Legend is my everything. That's not even funny." She leveled him with a look she hoped did not scare his child. "I don't want to take the last name of a man just because I love him and going to die with him by my side." It doesn't make sense. "Did your wife take your thousand last names?" That was actually one of her genuinely curious questions about his marriage.

"I'm still working in the International Wizarding Confederation office but I have a diplomat status now, so currently my duty station is in Italy." She smiled happily, talking about her career was the way to win her over in any conversation. "You?"

Joćo chuckled. "I mean, he'll attend Hogwarts so he'll eventually learn it. So you can actually tell his father's doings when he can understand them. But," his eyes glistened, "I fear not. I didn't do anything naughty. So they'll be like things he should do." Hehehe.

And Louisa, c'mon. His jokes were funny too. "No, but -" he paused as he thought of a way to explain this, "it sure makes things easy, and it's a nice gesture. It directly shows you're family, you don't need to add 'He's my husband.' afterwards. Why didn't Legend take up your surname, then?" HMMM? Although... Legend Chosen was a pretty unique name, he wouldn't have taken up 'Carter' either. "She did, actually. Not all of them, but she added 'Neves' at the end." It wasn't like she lost her identity or anything, it was a nice gesture. But Joćo and Louisa had always had different views on things, he wasn't surprised this time either. And to answer his subconscious question, she clearly was still called Carter in the alternate universe.

A diplomat, huh? Wow, his eyebrows shot up. "Congratulations." He grinned. "You'll do great." It was funny how both of them ended up in International Affairs. "And I'm still working for Portuguese Ministry of Magic as a specialist in Latin American affairs." Which explained why he didn't know she was the diplomat to Italy, actually. He barely dealt with Europe. He paused. "Mags paints and sells her portraits and this little fella goes to a muggle kindergarten, although funny things do happen at times." He smiled as he looked at his son... who seemed to be bored slightly.

Pedro Wilhelm was bored - he didn't understand a thing and he wanted to play by the stone. His candy was finished too. He looked at it again, then turned his big, blue eyes back at his papa.

"I wanna play there," he half-whispered again in Portuguese and pointed at the fountain area as he stole yet another shy glance from the woman. She looked like his mother, but he could understand his mother and he didn't understand her.


Joćo looked at the fountain again. It looked safe for a kid... hopefully it really way. "Okay, but do not go away anywhere else and don't touch the water, okay?" Once the boy nodded, he said gestured for him to go. "When you're hungry, we can eat something." Although he had just eaten some sweets, so the boy was fine for a while. Good thing Mags wasn't here to tell him no, hehe.

He watched him for a short while, and once he deemed the boy was alright for now, he turned to Louisa. "We didn't even order anything!" He was losing his edge, seriously. "What do you want?"

His father wasn't naughty? Are you kidding even right now, exotic man? Louisa gave him one of her clever smiles with an unbelieving arched eyebrow. "Oh his father was naughty alright. I would know." Hah, nice answer though. "Yeah, I know he'll be a good man if he turns out like his dad." Her voice grew softer now because it was the truth. Yes, Joao had his 'downs' with Louisa when they were kids but it all made sense now after they grew up and understood how tense a teenager's mind would be when you moved away from home and had a family like Joao's. Or Louisa's. They went through a lot that made them who they were right this day.

Speaking of, that was probably the reason Louisa knew for sure that family meant a lot to him now. His family. "Giving up my last name is too much a sacrifice just to prove I'm happy to be family with Legend. It's my identity." She countered. "But hey, it's nice that you guys share a last name now. Whatever makes you happy." And this was a genuine comment.

"Thanks!" She sincerely hoped she would do as well as she thought she would. His own career path was impressive, too, although you would not expect anything less of a politician's son. "I know you're doing splendidly." The details about his family is heartwarming. Despite Louisa not getting along with his wife (with no fault of her own, might she add), she was glad to hear he had a happy and stable life with her and their son. "Ah, who would've thought. Joao Neves has a small, cute family of his own and lives happily ever after in a far away land." Definitely not Louisa (especially after Aspen).

Some things never change, though. Joao remained the overly cautious and mannered guy she'd ever known. He didn't even have to be that mannered, but oh well. Can't change a man once he was brought up a certain way. "Oh, I did miss you, you know that?" A chuckle escaped her lips. "A cup of coffee is fine with me." She would watch his son for him... Pedro was kind of sweet and awfully polite, too. Maybe Louisa could teach him a prank or two...............

Joćo grinned then. Maaaaybe, maybe he might have been. He chose not to comment, then his face softened. "I'm glad that you think so," he said with a small smile, then glanced at his son. "I hope he'll be better," he murmured then. It was quite interesting that this little fella entered his life without any notification whatsoever, was unwanted even, but he loved him so much now that he'd die to see him turning out alright in the end.

Louisa had always been the free spirit of the two, hadn't she? And Joćo, the traditionalist. "And whatever to make you happy." If Legend was also cool with that (he wouldn't have been), then all was fine.

He chuckled at her words as he waved his hand impatiently to shut her up with good humour (and embarrasment even), although he did sense the shadow of Aspen behind them. Shadow of... the whole past, actually. "I still can't believe it, to be honest," he said, "waking up to the screams of a four year old that he wants to fly out of bed is just what I have dreamt of." Hehehe, it was clearly a joke. The whole world could see he loved every second of it. Or not every single second, but the majority of the moments. And thankfully, he wasn't that type of people who just couldn't stop talking about their kid. My kid did that, so funny. Oh and then he had another moment when... Neither was Mags.

"I missed you too," he said, and his face turned serious for a moment. "My offer is still up and serious, y'know? You and Legend should visit us in Portugal. I'll even take the time off to show you around." He loved them THAT much, see? Who would do that for her???

Ahem.

"Alright," he said as he got up, "please watch Pedro for me?" He knew she would, but being a parent meant you worried more than at normal times and he warned her just in case.

. . .

After a few minutes, he returned with a tray. Coffee for her, tea for him, the Brit style. Pedro still looked mesmerised by the colourful stone, good.

"So," he said as he set down their drinks, "when are you having a baby?" A dead serious question too.

HEHEHE.

HEHEHE.



Whatever made her happy alright, pft. Legend wasn't exceptionally happy about her decision but at least it wasn't a deal breaker for him, hell not even the child thing was.

Joao was talking about such mundane things of wives and children it made Louisa smile widely despite herself observing him closely. He changed a lot, in a good way. "Oh my," it was funny to hear about the reality of his married life. "That sounds like something Adam would've enjoyed." Hah, the irony. Now Adam was happily carrying out his research in Germany and Merlin knew what else. Oh man, she hadn't thought about Adam in such a long, long time. Wait, what? Visit in Portugal? Riiiight. "Right. I know you're serious but I wouldn't want to disrupt your haven." She smirked only half-joking. Louisa had a pretty good guess that his wife wouldn't appreciate her visit so she was not about to get herself into some drama.

Again.

Louisa did watch Pedro for Joao, she rested her chin on her hand and kept her eyes on the excited four-year-old. He looked a little like his dad. It was heartwarming, was this why Legend was dying to convince her to have a baby? She had a long, distant staring at Pedro before Joao was suddenly at the table again with coffee. "Thanks," she murmured quickly, waking up.

What a coincidence. She took a sip from her coffee then allowed one corner of her mouth to lift up in a small smile. "No babies for now." She couldn't see herself responsible for a child yet. She didn't want to. "It's not an easy decision, and not one I feel to make just yet." Too bad for her husband, yes.

"So you're going to live in Portugal until your kid's qualified for Hogwarts?" Or would they just consider Ilvermorny since it's closer?

Ama!Nabs IS NAMED MINHO & Is SO Black Panther Right Now

It was time for the usual meeting, you know, where she lured Ezra Carver to some place in the name of old friendship and gave him a hard time for existing. Aside from going for a run early in the morning it was her favorite past time. She loved her jobs, both of them really, but they stressed her out too. Edita sat on the edge of the fountain, running a knut across her knuckles as she waited for her friend to arrive.

He was pretty sure he was late, which was fine because outside of work, Ezra pretty much ran in a different timezone altogether. The different timezone being approximately twenty two minutes after everyone else's. This wasn't necessarily a new thing, though somehow it managed to annoy people all the time, anyway.

The man could hardly get why. Shouldn't those who loved you accept you, faults an all? At any rate, this was the sort of excuse he employed when trying to end arguments that led anyone nowhere. Except to maybe a healer, for something to get rid off a headache.

Spotting the familiar face, Ezra switched from his usual lazy stride to what he hoped was a more conspicuous one. He tried to be as silent as possible, and probably unsuccessfully tried to spooking her by leaning in close and saying, "Boo!"

He was late. That was typical. He wasn't sneaky at all. That was also typical. "Boo back!" she shouted and shot straight up to jump on him. Edita grabbed him in a badly executed headlock all while simultaneously trying to hang off of him--maybe forcing him into picking her up or to carry her--whichever happened first.

Chances are his fragile self would drop her.

"You're late. You have no respect for this friendship, do you?"

He should have anticipated this sort of attack to his person. It was the kind of manhandling Edita had exercised on him for the duration of their Hogwarts education.

Ezra lost his balance for a second, stumbling forward and nearly falling face first into the fountain. He almost wish he had. "I have moderate respect for it." He winded one of his arms around her waist and patted her back. It was an awkward sort of hug, what with being on the receiving end of a headlock in a public space and all that. "Hi, Ed. Missed you, too, maybe."
