Default Outdoor Seating



Visiting Florean Fortescue's for a tasty treat? In the shop just to meet and greet with friends? Either way, you'll probably be looking for a place to sit down. If the weather's warm enough, or you're just looking for some fresh air, you'll love to sit at one of the many outdoor patio tables the parlour has to offer. Each table is circular in shape, with a number of comfortable wooden seats surrounding it. Depending on the time of year, you just might find a bouquet of fresh flowers sitting in the middle of the table you're seated at.

If the sun is too bright, you'll want to open the umbrella-style top mounted on your table. Otherwise, leave the umbrella closed and pushed down to enjoy the sunny day. At each table, you'll find a menu showcasing all the tasty flavours available at Florean Fortescue's. A napkin dispenser can also be found at every table, just in case you have to clean up any ice cream accidents that do tend to happen.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

The weather in February was still chilly but Rachel Skye Bayless was sweating and slightly grumpy. Of course from her previous pregnancy, exercise had been recommended but here she was huffing and puffing even though her baby bump wasn’t that huge yet. There it was, that word: yet. Maybe it was her hormones but she wanted to cry as she eased herself into one of the seats at Florean’s. Without looking at Kyle lest he see the tears forming in her eyes, the Herbologist pried her scarf from her face and neck.

The flavours of ice cream wafted out at her and it was one of the scents that did not make her want to be sick. What a relief for that. Rachel busied herself by pulling a tissue from her bag to mop the sweat from her forehead. Discreetly, she also tended to those bothersome tears. Only then did she look around to her husband. “I’m craving cookies and cream with gummy worms,’’ Rach said softly, trying not to be overwhelmed and teary all over again because Kyle didn’t deserve her throwing a tantrum at him for now reason.

Kyle had been quiet most of the walk, he could sense something was wrong, but he didn't dare ask. She wasn't going to tell him without an argument he felt and Kyle decided it was better for him to just stay quiet. Pulling out her chair and then finding his own seat he sat down thinking about what flavors to have, though he hoped ice cream could help a little with the mood between them, he knew she was going through the hormones of pregnancy as well.

"That can be easily gotten" He smiled and stood again, "I'll be right back." Kissing her on top of her head he headed to get their ice cream. Coming back with her choice as well as a chocolate frog for himself, he handed over the ice cream.

"I got you a double scoop, hope that was okay."

It would make the very hormonal and already sad Rachel even sadder and weepier to know that hubby dearest thought she might argue with him. Alright, fine. The chances of that were exponentially high but she’d try her best to wind a tantrum down to maybe just sobbing on his shoulder. Rachel couldn’t remember being this moody during her first pregnancy. It was a rather annoying fact.

The woman just nodded and watched Kyle go off to fetch their ice cream. She sighed to herself then got busy by skimming through her shoulder bag for her shopping list. There were still a few more items she needed to get but she was so tired. Not to mention she thought that her feet were swollen because her flats felt marginally tighter. Kyle was back before she knew it. Rach managed a smile as she took her ice cream. “That’s perfect. One scoop for me, one scoop for our baby.” A yellow and green gummy worm was plucked from the ice cream. “Is it okay if we go home after we’re done here? I think I need a nap. It might help to reset my mood.”

Mm, was there anything quite like a yummy scoop of ice cream from Florean's in the summer? Sure, Vera used to be able to do this at ANY time before she'd been a Hogwarts student but now that she did have to just TOIL away for MONTHS on end (she was still salty about no rainbow touch, okay) it just hit differently - that first yummy bite.

Which she very loudly enjoyed now - the fizzing whizzbee flavor crackling in her mouth. "MMMM. Did you know that it's a PROVEN fact that kids that are allowed to eat ice cream once a day actually live like... 20x longer than kids that don't have any at all?" The lactose intolerant? First year was their mid life crisis. Which made a lot of sense if you thought about it. "I think that means we should probably come back to Florean's every day this summer. ALSO maybe if we have it MULTIPLE times a day we'll live like... 35 times longer!" That was double her previous number, right?

Vasco would've thought that after two entire years at Hogwarts his twin would've grown up at least a little bit. Nine out of ten times her behavior was what he expected of Vesper. Actually, Ves was better behaved. And cleaner. Not so noisy either. It was a wonder he made it to thirteen with Vera around.

Could they all hear him groaning right now? No? Well that could possibly be because he was ignoring every single word that came out of his sisters mouth. Life was so much more enjoyable most of the time when he couldn't hear her. Like right this very moment. Each and every lick of his chocolate ice cream was being enjoyed in blissful silence all thanks to his trusty noise canceling headphones.


Now young Vesper on the other hand, was hanging onto her older sisters every word. "Really?! What about candy? We alllllllll eat lots of that." Which was no surprise since their papa worked at the candy shop. This girl was big on candy but probably not as much as her older siblings were. Right now her attention was on her own brightly colored ice cream that was covered in colorful sprinkles. "I wouldn't mind being the one to test it out." If it meant she got to eat lots of ice cream she was down for this experiment. Mhm.

It was moments like these that Renner loved the most. The four of them together, just the kids and himself. With the twins at Hogwarts now, the times weren't as often so he had come to cherish these days more. Even if his older daughter was loud and his son wasn't paying attention. What mattered was they were all together.

So when things sure as this came spilling out of one of their mouths, he did what he normally did. He went with it. "Oh, yeah? Does it have to be a trip to Florean's or can we eat ice cream at home? What about for all of our meals? Maybe we'll live forever, hm?" There was a playful twinkle in his eye to show he was teasing his children just a tad bit. As a single father, he had to have some fun with them all sometimes, didn't he?

It was only because of their Papa's prescense that Ve was not riiiiipping the headphones of his head. And then probably running away with them, to only lose interest like... 5 minutes later so he could take them back. But she wasn't particularly looking to push her luck today on potentially getting in trouble. It was so far a NICE day. And despite Vasco's belief she hadn't matured at all, there had been like... maybe a 1% increase in her maturity level. ... Maybe less but who was REALLY keeping track?

Besides, there wasn't much reason to harrass her brother when the youngest Thanatos was such a captive and adoring (and adorABLE) audience. Vera hadn't really considered candy into her theory (you know, the proven one) but... well if ice cream worked.. "It's doesn't work quite as well as ice cream because you don't get the protein from the dairy! For most candies anyways. BUT it does help!" Was that believeable enough? The reasoning sounded legit to her. Reaching out, Ve put a hand on Scooter's shoulder - AFTER she wiped it off on her napkin (growth). "I put all my faith and the responsibility of our blood line to you, Vesper."

WAIT A MINUTE. Did Papa just say they should have ice cream EVERY meal? "YES. It works better than the sorcerer stone! I think we should implement this change to our diet RIGHT away." One would think with her newest desire to be pretty she'd suddenly have more concern with her diet and yet... Vera would much rather just go running around outside more to make up for even MORE sugar. It's not like she had any type of shortage of energy to do so. "It can be any ice cream too. I'm already well on my way, I go visit the elves multiple times a day for some ice cream. Though... I think one swapped it for sugar free one time. It didn't taste as good." So therefore, clearly couldn't have worked as well.

Now see, the thing was, Vasco could have easily taken off the headphones at anytime and joined in on the conversation.. but he didn't want to. The
teenager was a million percent sure that whatever was spewing forth from his twins mouth wasn't worth hearing and he didn't want to be any part of it. So whatever it was she was saying or doing, he was going to let her and she could leave him out of it. All that mattered to him right this moment was the ice cream in his hand that he was steadily making his way through.


Hmm, so not all of the candies helped as much as others. Vesper was taking all of this in and trying to process it all at the very same time. I can eat lots of chocolate!" Since most chocolate had dairy in it, this much she did know. Either way she was going to eat lots of junk and help out the family in their quest. "Don't worry! I can handle it!" It was a big job but someone had to do it.

"The Sorcerer's Stone, hm? Renner, chuckled lightly. Where did she come up with this stuff? "Well if you really think that's the best idea then have at it." He was sure that sooner or later Vera would get tired of eating nothing but ice cream all day everyday and that she would eventually want something different to eat. For now though he was going to indulge her in this and see how long it took her to figure out that ice cream was wonderful but so was many other foods.

It was moments like this when Vera realized just how much she missed Scooter and Papa during the term. Scoot was SO sweet and cute and agreeable. Her so seriously taking on her new mission had Vera unable to do anything but give her additional squishes and offering her a bite of her own ice cream. "I have no doubt you'll do us proud." How long was it again until little sister was at school with them too??? Could Vera pray to the sorting hat NOW for Scoot to be a Gryffindor with her?

Vera really only held onto any information in History of Magic that she thought might be useful for negotiation purposes later. Which meant she had probably remembered like....2 things, one being the sorcerers stone. Only for this purpose apparently. "REALLY?" She was shocked he'd agreed, but she coughed quickly to hide that, pasting a smile on her face and nodding oh so seriously. "For the sake of science I think it's necessary. We could be on the brink of discovery of everlasting life!"

Papa seemed particularly agreeable today, considering he was so easily relenting to an all candy diet, so she was wondering if that meant she could push her luck on pushing Vasco's buttons too. She was... feeling pretty good about it, and thinking this also MUST be information he'd want to know, so she leaned over the table to tap his arm. She'd give him a moment before she just forced it down himself, but to be on the safe side she also went ahead and mouthed Papa says we can eat ice cream for every meal!

Vesper was cute and agreeable, yes. But she was also getting older. In a few short weeks she was going to be ten. Double digits! This was a big deal for her because it meant that next summer she would be.. eleven! That meant she could get her very own wand like the rest of her family had and.. and.. AND.. she could got to Hogwarts with Vera and Vasco!!! Which meant she would see her siblings every single day again! Hehehe.

Extra squishes made her giggle and the offered bite of Vera's ice cream made this young girls brown eyes go big and wide. Of course she took the bite! One didn't turn down an offer like that! With the brightest smile she offered her big sister some of hers in return. Fair was fair. "I won't let you down!" Let the mission commence!


"If you think this is something worth testing out, go for it." Renner smiled at his eldest daughter. It was summertime, there was no reason not to let his children enjoy it. And let them learn from their own mistakes at the same time.

Right now, Vasco was calm. He had ice cream and not much is anything really was being heard around him. It was perfect. At least it was, until he was being tapped at. Brown eyes met brown eyes across the table. The headphones that blocked out everything weren't removed from his ears but he did actually watch what she was mouthing at him. Papa says we can eat ice cream for every meal!

...

He blinked at her. Once. Twice. Three times. "What's the catch?" There had to be a catch, right? His Ravenclaw mind said there had to be. No parent in their right mind would allow their children to eat ice cream for every single meal.. would they?

An entire year still felt like FOREVER to have to wait for Vesper to join them at school too. Especially with Vasco extra ~moody~ these days. She was pretty sure she wasn't more annoying than usual, but he certainly seemed to think she was. Or maybe after 13 looooooong years she'd just finally snapped the last shreds of his patience. If that were the case, she wasn't sure if she should be proud of that or if it meant it was time to back off. Probably not the latter.

Ve eyed the offered bite for a moment before deciding she did in fact want to try Scoot's flavors too, and chomped down on it. "Mmm. Good choices!" And as for letting her down? "I am sure you won't!" Unless Papa changed his mind about them eating all that candy - but even then, that wouldn't be Scooter's fault.

... Wait, HAD there been a catch to her father's agreement? Vera blinked back at Vasco a few times, before looking at the Thanatos head as if STUDYING him. He seemed sincere, and no conditions had been extended so... Her face broke into a grin again as she took another bite of her ice cream. "No catch. Papa just believes in me and my research. So we can eat ice cream in order to extend the longevity of our lives." Was there potions for that? Yes. But she doubted they would taste nearly as delicious.

Another bite went into her mouth as her mind went back to the youngest birthday and the fact there was only ONE YEAR LEFT. Before the fact there was only ONE year left brought another thought to her mind. If Vesper was going to be with THEM.... who would be with Papa? A frown crossed her face and she set down her spoon for a moment. "Papa, do you miss us a TON when we are gone for the summers?"

Waiting another WHOLE year to go to Hogwarts was a long time. Considering how she had already waited TWO entire years already. Two very long years at home without Vasco and Vera were two very quite years.. and not to mention lonely. She did have friends from primary school, quite a few really and she spent numerous amounts of time just her and papa now (which she absolutely LOVED) but it wasn't the same. Nothing beat having her older siblings at home. The says couldn't go fast enough until next year when she would be with them.

Vesper giggled. "I know! It's the bestest!" She had gotten sugar cookie that had bits of cookie crumbles in it and strawberry jam ice cream! The flavors went together really well.. or so she thought that they did.


Despite his sisters words in which she truly believed there was no catch whatsoever to this new change of diet, Vasco simply didn't agree. Yet, he wasn't going to burst Vera's happy little bubble. He would allow her to think as she pleased and therefore gave a slight nod of his head and the smallest of grins before continuing to eat his ice cream.

Leave it to his son to question things. Renner looked at his daughter and smiled. "Now why would there be a catch to such a smart experiment? The only way to find things out for sure is to test them within safe boundaries, yes?" He knew his children were explorers and adventures by nature. And just when he thought the questions might be done. There was that. It wasn't only the question but the frown on his sweet daughters face that went with it and then the other two sets of dark eyes that turned to look at him now. SIGH. He should have known this question would be asked, in fact he was surprised it had taken them this long. "I miss you both each and every second that you're away from me. Vesper too when she's at school. That's how it is for a parent when their children start to get older. You all come home to me though and we spend our time together having fun." And that's all the three of them needed to know.

It's too bad Vasco's headphones were still on, because as Papa assured there were no conditions it occurred to her that he might not have heard him. Which was especially too bad because Papa called her idea smart. Look at that! Even the little lioness could use her brain to make up plans sometimes. "I agree, Papa! So even after summer Scoot can test it with you and Vasco and I can with the house elves! But perhaps you should also write a letter to whoever the new Headmaster is and let him know of our new dietary needs. You know, just in case." Look at that, she was even thinking of the little details!

Maybe Vasco WAS listening to the conversation, because she could tell he and Scooter both also turned to look at Papa after her question. She should have thought to ask it much sooner, but typical of a small child she was really only focused on herself and her needs. Now that was in her teens and becoming ~mature~ only did she start considering other people too. But even then... her growth was still minimal, considering it was only those she was really really really close to that got that consideration. Which made it then seem fitting that Papa and this moment was actually probably the first. His answer was... unsatisfactory. Because they were gone for a really long time and that meant he was lonely for all that time too! And next term it would be all three of them. "... But... what will you do when Scooter goes with us next year?" Should she ask to home school? She didn't really want to because she LOVED Hogwarts but....

maybe if it was for Papa.

Or... maybe they should try to help him date? She didn't really love that idea either but.. she glanced over at her twin. Maybe it was something they should talk about later too.

Layla had chosen to accompany her children to Diagon Alley that morning to buy their school supplies before the family went abroad on their holiday. She was grateful for the fact that she was now self employed and therefore could choose her own hours to work and was far more flexible during the school holidays when the girls would be home. The former Ravenclaw had trusted her children to go shop by themselves for an hour whilst she sat in the Leaky Cauldron conducting some work for her personal training clients. It was all workout schedules and nutrition plans, something she was sure the girls wouldn’t be interested in sitting with their Ma doing. She may have regretted the decision to let her youngest daughter Aurora off on her own later when she likely came home with something completely unnecessary like a bright pink Pygmy Puff or some other magical creature that the family definitely didn’t need. Ariadne was much more trustworthy and seemed to be taking her education seriously, not that Layla would ever pressure her to do well, there was already enough pressure on a sixteen year old girls shoulders.

Upon leaving the Leaky Cauldron, Layla headed towards Florean’s five minutes before the scheduled meeting time. Ordinarily she wouldn’t encourage eating ice cream but it was a week before Aurora’s birthday, the weather was pleasant and it was a central location that they’d be able to navigate to easily. Bambi was at work in the Ministry but the blonde was hoping that she would be able to join them on her break at some point. She chose a table outside to wait on before ordering.


Aurora had actually listened to her Ma and had stuck to her shopping list despite the extremely CUTE things she had seen out and about that she reeeeally wanted to buy but had refrained herself from doing so. She would convince her Mom to take her shopping for muggle clothes later that week for their holiday, she was much easier to influence with her sweet smile and batting eyelashes. Aurora was also perfectly on time as she arrived at the ice cream parlour, a fact that she was extremely proud of for the young Ravenclaw could be easily sidetracked when she was on her own.

Skipping into Florean’s for it wasn’t often that the Ackerly’s were allowed to indulge in ice cream, the eleven (very almost twelve) year old spotted her Ma instantly amongst the small crowd. Bright blonde, tall and usually pretty casually dressed, Layla was easy to find. She however waited a second to see if her sister would arrive first.

Ariadne Ackerly was always in a better mood when it was summer. Her fifth year, her first one in Hogwarts, had been a mess to put it simply, and a lot of it she was happily ready to leave behind. The term was over, and so were her bloody OWLs, and she was no longer the new transfer student who occasionally lost her way around the castle. Her troubles with adjustments aside, she had come to really like Hogwarts. She even had some summer plans with her friends too, which were always things worth getting excited over. Among other things, of course.

She was appreciative about having a day out with Rora and Ma Layla today, even if it had to be in bustling Diagon Alley. While Ariadne was a people person, she knew when a crowd was too much, and the Alley during the summer was always exactly that. Ariadne liked being at home too, but there was only so much one can do there and she didn't want to keep watching Darcy doing her usual cat things all day. Her constant cuddling with the cat had probably already annoyed the poor thing. Besides, this trip to the Alley gave her the chance to buy what she needed for the upcoming term, including new quills and inks. She'd broken a few over her quills during her unflattering moments, and all that schoolwork had dried up her favourite ink too. The blond had also skipped Madam Malkin's, since her uniform still fit perfectly well when she tried it on earlier, though she still had her opinions on the school skirt. And the uniform, in general. Hard not to when one has worn the silks of Beauxbatons'.

Spotting Rora while on the way to Ma Layla, Ariadne placed a hand on her sister's shoulder and gave it a gentle squeeze. Rora is tiny, but Ariadne would never miss her face in a crowd. "Found you," the sixteen year old said, smiling down at the younger Ackerly. "Are you done shopping? It might also be the best time to decide on what flavour you want, for the ice cream." It's not everyday they had ice cream in the Ackerly residence, even though she and Rora had probably gone overboard all term for such a guilty pleasure. What Ma Layla didn't know won't hurt her.

It didn’t take long of waiting around the entrance for Ariadne before the familiar blonde turned up. Aurora was grateful that she wasn’t going to look like a lemon anymore waiting by herself and being asked by several passers-by whether she was okay or lost. Admittedly, the petite blonde wasn’t the best with directions and in the first couple months of attending Hogwarts had managed to get herself lost on the moving staircases or down the corridors in which in her opinion all looked much the same apart from a few strange paintings! Still, she had managed to survive her first year without being late for a lesson because she had wandered into the charms classroom rather than another.

Her older sisters appearance had given her a little fright having been facing the opposite direction to where the older Ravenclaw had appeared. She squealed a little after feeling the hands on her shoulders but changed to a relieved smile as she heard that familiar voice. “I was waiting for you,” she giggled. The sisters were extremely close to one another and the blonde looked up to Ari always. She had thankfully been spared from the stress that Ariadne had been feeling over the past couple of months. “I think I’m finished” she replied, pondering over the fact that she hadn’t brought a pen or a quill with her and therefore couldn’t tick off from her list what she had already bought. As for ice cream flavours, that was a BIG decision and she had not decided exactly what it was she wanted. “Maybe cookies and cauldron cakes? Or maybe lemondrop? OR treacle fudge!” If it was up to her she’d probably get all three but the likelihood of her Ma letting her have three scoops was very small.

Speaking of their Ma, it was probably time they headed in rather than leaving the poor woman waiting. “Shall we go sneak up on her?” she giggled.

Yikes.

The squeal from her sister also alarmed Ariadne, but she eventually realised that it was a valid response. She had gone behind Rora unnoticed and without warning, after all. "Sorry, I didn't mean to startle you." She offered an apologetic little smile to the younger girl. Meant no harm, but still she was sorry. "Aw, you didn't have to. I'd have found my way back anyway." Besides, she was taller and having inherited Mommy Bambi's long legs had its perks when it came to dealing with crowds like this one they were facing today. It's incredibly unsurprising, how children of all ages flocked Diagon Alley every summer.

She gave ice cream some more thought, nodding to what Rora had already mentioned. "Well, you can decide on two flavours so that I can get the other one, then we'll share. How does that sound?" Ariadne offered. She didn't particularly have an inclination to a flavour today, and she figure maybe Rora would much prefer getting to have at least two. The things Ariadne would do for her sister, really, it's boundless. She didn't mind sharing with Rora at all, not one bit. It's just ice cream to her. "If you're feeling daring too, we can try convincing Ma to get a third flavour for herself and then we'll pretend to want to give hers a try." Nothing's impossible in each scenario. Even if Rora didn't get three scoops for herself, she could still get three flavours. It's very much a win-win in her book.

Sneaking up, she said? Ariadne couldn't help but grin. "Thought you wouldn't ask. Let's go," she replied with a wink. Though she was indeed sixteen years of age, there was always a silly part of her that she would reserve for Rora. As carefully and as quietly as she could manage, Ariadne tugged Rora along with her and snuck behind their Ma Layla.

Hopefully Ma was distracted or busy doing something.

The startled squeal that had escaped Aurora’s lips was promptly replaced by a delighted giggle at the thought of being frightened by her favourite person in the world. Aurora wasn’t the type to be easily spooked (unless it was by an evil gnome directing its anger towards her or a vengeful squirrel with a vendetta against petite blondes) and so she did find it a little amusing that her sister had managed to sneak up on her without being detected. Maybe Aurora wasn’t as observant as she thought today or maybe her mind was too focused on ice cream. “I know that, silly! I just meant I wanted to arrive together.” Aurora had no doubt that Ariadne was better at directions than she was. For a start she could actually see over the crowds of smaller students and she had been allowed to visit Diagon Alley by herself before. Aurora was apparently not so trustworthy.

Ariadne was always so thoughtful when it came to caring about her younger sister. Aurora, meanwhile, was delighted to be spoilt by her older sister but was often a kind and considerate young lady too. “But is there not a flavour that you want too?” she asked. She didn’t want to be responsible for picking a flavour that Ari wasn’t so interested in and apart from a select few weird flavours, Rora would probably eat them all! “I think Cookies and Cauldron Cakes is my favourite.” Not that they had indulged in Florean ice creams very often but she had been impartial to sneaking a bowl or two out from Hogwarts kitchen to share in the common room with Ari before. As for convincing their Ma to try the other flavour, that was probably waaaaay out of the question. “Ma will probably have one of those boring low sugar flavours,” she wrinkled her nose. The Ravenclaw thought that a sugar free ice cream sounded absolutely tasteless and therefore wasn’t even worth trying. The best part about eating sugar was the bouncy sugar rush you got afterwards which would be missing from one of those healthy alternatives.

Rora didn’t often play tricks on her mothers, mostly for the worry of receiving one of those disappointed stern looks her Ma gave in reaction, but she felt brave and daring when by her sisters side. Her Ma would never tell her off, in fact underneath her hard exterior was a squishy inside who cared deeply for the girls but she was quite a serious person generally. She trod carefully, making sure not to make a sound as she approached the older blonde sat at the table. She looked at Ari, counting down silently with her fingers.

Three.. two.. one..

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

The only thing sweet that Aryan had the stomach for without the slightest hesitation is ice cream. After a series of pointing to the respective treats, he got the message across to his dad about the type of ice cream he had set his mind on: one scoop of peanut ice cream in a bowl, topped with walnuts, sour gummy worms and sour patch kids. That was enough sugar for him, and after collecting his order, he had headed outside to find a seat. Dad Adi had magically opened the closed umbrella though he was now distracted with catching up with an old school friend. Ary didn’t mind. Dad Adi was popular, not just because he was a professional Gobstones player and Hippogriff breeder; Ary heard tales of all the friends he’d made at Hogwarts during his seven years there.

Ary dug his red plastic spoon into the ice cream, choosing to leave his toppings for last. His thoughts were on Hogwarts now. There was just one more year until he started the School and he was wondering if he would be as friendless as he was there as he was at Primary Wizarding School. The almost ten year old wasn’t completely friendless, not if you counted Bryony; it was just that he was so different from everyone else by mainly keeping to himself and by hardly using words.

Maybe he was just another weirdo.

Oh, no. Surely, Ariadne was not a gnome. She was definitely better-looking, taller, and did not care enough about gardens to even consider haunting them. Nor was she a squirrel, which would have been a wild thought especially when the older Ackerly sister thought they were pretty harmless as creatures. But imagine having a gnome or a squirrel for a sister. Absolutely not. With that, she gave her sister a gentle pinch on the cheek. "Well, I'm here now, aren't I?" They can, of course, arrive together. And she was more than relieved to hear her sister's giggle. Stay happy, Rora. That's all Ariadne would ever want for and from her.

Okay, to be fair, there were flavours Ariadne would rather avoid. Though she was adventurous to a degree, some of them just weren't appealing at all. And can people really blame her? Who wanted troll bogey ice cream? Not her. Count her out. "You won't find me checking the 'For The Brave of Heart' menu," the sixteen-year-old offered. "I like Cookies and Cauldron Cakes too. But I trust you to decide on a second one. Just none of the weird flavours, alright?" And by that, Ariadne meant she wouldn't mind flavours that actually sounded like acceptable desserts. Tomato soup wasn't dessert, and neither was dragon blood enticing. Maybe she was putting too much faith in Rora's hands here but, really, it's ice cream and her sister couldn't possibly go off the rails with them, right? Rora had the bigger sweet tooth between the sisters. "Hey, they're not boring! I love some good strawberry ice cream too." Sugar-free or not, strawberry was top-tier, whether as an ice cream flavour or as the actual fruit.

Alongside Rora, Ariadne carefully made her way behind their Ma Layla. Once she made sure their Ma was (hopefully) unaware of what their sneaky plan was, she looked back at Rora with a playful smirk and waited for the younger blond to finish her finger countdown.

Three, two, one....

"HEEEEY, Ma!" Ariadne said, placing a hand on her Ma Layla's shoulder so very suddenly and grinning at her. Surprise! Did it work?

No sermons today, right? Ariadne would try her best to wiggle herself and Rora out of that situation with her irresistible charm and pretty smile.

It was true there was nothing that the Beery twins really needed in Diagon Alley currently, but Drake had begged and pleased that they be allowed to take a trip during the summer when all of the Hogwarts school kids would be out and about and prepping for the new term. He'd argued that it was important, because maybe they could meet some of the kids freshly starting and then even have older friends by the time it was his and Gilly's turn September 2111. Their mother really hadn't needed that much convincing though, perhaps his spiel had really been for his sister.

But either way... they'd been permitted to have the trip. And so far it'd been a lovely day! But they only had a couple hours left now, and when Gilly requested to be about to go to Flourish and Blotts well... he knew that was the rest of the trip and the genuinely energetic boy sullened slightly. Until a brilliant idea came to his mind, and once again puppy dog eyes were used to persuade his mother to sit at Florean's alone while they did their shopping.

It was only after many, many promises of not moving a muscle once she'd seen him carefully seated at a table, that he would be allowed. It was also clear that if he were to mess up this chance now, he and Gilly would be watched like hawks next summer. So... he had every intention of not messing it up. Once his ice cream had been gotten and his mother paid, he waved at her as he skipped to the outside seating area and glanced around for where he was setting up shop. Spotting a familiar face, Drake paused for the slightest moment before approaching him. "Hi! Aryan, is it? Can I sit with you?" If he said yes, maybe mom would be even more appeased he had company. Plus... it'd be good to know more of his St. Woboldo's classmates instead of just his twin.

They can, of course, arrive together. And she was more than relieved to hear her sister's giggle. Stay happy, Rora. That's all Ariadne would ever want for and from her.

Okay, to be fair, there were flavours Ariadne would rather avoid. Though she was adventurous to a degree, some of them just weren't appealing at all. And can people really blame her? Who wanted troll bogey ice cream? Not her. Count her out. "You won't find me checking the 'For The Brave of Heart' menu," the sixteen-year-old offered. "I like Cookies and Cauldron Cakes too. But I trust you to decide on a second one. Just none of the weird flavours, alright?" And by that, Ariadne meant she wouldn't mind flavours that actually sounded like acceptable desserts. Tomato soup wasn't dessert, and neither was dragon blood enticing. Maybe she was putting too much faith in Rora's hands here but, really, it's ice cream and her sister couldn't possibly go off the rails with them, right? Rora had the bigger sweet tooth between the sisters. "Hey, they're not boring! I love some good strawberry ice cream too." Sugar-free or not, strawberry was top-tier, whether as an ice cream flavour or as the actual fruit.

Alongside Rora, Ariadne carefully made her way behind their Ma Layla. Once she made sure their Ma was (hopefully) unaware of what their sneaky plan was, she looked back at Rora with a playful smirk and waited for the younger blond to finish her finger countdown.

Three, two, one....

"HEEEEY, Ma!" Ariadne said, placing a hand on her Ma Layla's shoulder so very suddenly and grinning at her. Surprise! Did it work?

No sermons today, right? Ariadne would try her best to wiggle herself and Rora out of that situation with her irresistible charm and pretty smile.


Aurora would also be absolutely beside herself if she had a gnome for a sister. Gnomes were short and ugly and bared their teeth at innocent children, Ariadne was tall and beautiful and looked after her sister so well. There was thankfully no comparison between the two. She nodded an affirmative to Ari’s question, grateful to have her sisters companionship which she had missed during the hour of shopping by herself.

There was absolutely no way that Aurora was going to pick one of the weird flavours that Florean’s offered. She questioned whether anyone actually tried any of them anyway. Wasn’t the point in having ice cream was that it was a delicious treat to be enjoyed? No one wanted troll bogies! “Would I ever do that to my big sister?” she looked up at Ari innocently. Truth be told she wouldn’t, especially if it meant she could share. “Treacle fudge it is!” she grinned. If they were going to share then it would go nicely with Rora’s Cauldron Cakes flavour rather than the lemon which might have been a bit too bitter for the sweet loving child.

Yes, Aurora LOVED strawberries too, especially in ice cream form where it was her favourite shade of bubblegum pink but she still didn’t understand the point in it being low sugar too. “But why can’t it be strawberry AND full of sugar?” Surely that would be superior?

The Ravenclaw watched as her sister placed her hands on her Ma’s shoulder and did her best to conceal the delighted giggle coming out her mouth.

Layla was engrossed in her work enough that she hadn’t noticed the patter of feet sneaking up behind her or the attempt at disguising a giggle from a perpetually happy eleven year old who found it difficult to conceal her joy. The hands on her shoulders were however enough to pull her out of her distraction and into the real world. She visibly jumped, raising her fists ready to fight off the attack. What would be attacking her in an ice cream parlour was unknown but the Wizarding World was a dangerous place and having grown up on the estates of London, Layla was unfortunately familiar with how to protect herself from harm.

She was relieved to see a pair of beaming blondes looking back at her as she swivelled round in her chair. “Don’t do that! I could’ve hit you” she lectured although it was followed by a small smile that was only familiar to her family. The woman, who had insisted for several years that she didn’t want to have children, was so happily settled into family life that she was pretty sure her kids could get away with anything if they really wanted to.

Nope, no gnomes in this family. With genes like Mommy Bambi's and Ma Layla's, Ariadne was confident that there would absolutely be no way they'd have a gnome for a sibling.

Ariadne would also be relieved to know that she and her sister had the same mindset on ice cream flavours. Suppose the brave taste adventurers can have a go at those, but not this girl. "I wouldn't know. As much as I adore you, I actually can't read your mind," the older Ackerly teased with a smile as she tucked some of Rora's hair behind her ear. But she appreciated it, of course. She wouldn't do the same to Rora. "Ooh, love me some treacle fudge." It was a solid flavour, definitely on the sweeter side that Ma Layla would likely make a face at, but Ariadne would remind their Ma that it's not everyday they went out for ice cream in Diagon Alley. Might as well make the most out of it.

"It most certainly can be," Ariadne gently reminded Rora, that regular strawberry ice cream was still very much a real flavour. "I assume they'd use sugar substitutes for them. I think it's good to have a sugar-free option for those who want a healthier choice...and for people like Ma, or else she'd never get to enjoy ice cream!" The sixteen year old made it a point to exaggerate the way her eyes widened at that. But Ma did deserve ice cream too, okay? Even if the sugar was absent.

Also, she was definitely not sorry for the reaction on Ma Layla's face after the sisters managed to surprise her. When she saw Ma's raised fists, Ariadne lifted her own hands too to shield them just in case, her boxing instincts kicking in for the moment. She knew Ma wouldn't hurt them, but still. "Gotcha, Ma," Ariadne pressed a quick kiss to Ma's cheek, as if that were some kind of apology for scaring her.

Merlin, Ma was still working? That's fair, she supposed, but it was a lovely day outside. "What are you working on? Rora and I want ice cream." Ariadne said, offering her cutest and most practiced 'please, Ma' smile as she claimed the seat closest to her and tugged Rora along to sit beside her.

He'd argued that it was important, because maybe they could meet some of the kids freshly starting and then even have older friends by the time it was his and Gilly's turn September 2111. Their mother really hadn't needed that much convincing though, perhaps his spiel had really been for his sister.

But either way... they'd been permitted to have the trip. And so far it'd been a lovely day! But they only had a couple hours left now, and when Gilly requested to be about to go to Flourish and Blotts well... he knew that was the rest of the trip and the genuinely energetic boy sullened slightly. Until a brilliant idea came to his mind, and once again puppy dog eyes were used to persuade his mother to sit at Florean's alone while they did their shopping.

It was only after many, many promises of not moving a muscle once she'd seen him carefully seated at a table, that he would be allowed. It was also clear that if he were to mess up this chance now, he and Gilly would be watched like hawks next summer. So... he had every intention of not messing it up. Once his ice cream had been gotten and his mother paid, he waved at her as he skipped to the outside seating area and glanced around for where he was setting up shop. Spotting a familiar face, Drake paused for the slightest moment before approaching him. "Hi! Aryan, is it? Can I sit with you?" If he said yes, maybe mom would be even more appeased he had company. Plus... it'd be good to know more of his St. Woboldo's classmates instead of just his twin.

Silent as he was, Ary made up for this by being obeservant. He had seen Drake and his mother but didn’t really think that Drake would want to sit with him, or even acknowledge him. It wasn’t as though they were enemies or anything of the sort. Drake might not think he was proper company. At least, not in the conversationalist way, anyhow.

Imagine his surprise when Drake showed up at his table then. Young Ary’s mouth was occupied with ice cream and a sour patch kid at the moment but it wasn’t an inceonvenience. He nodded, lips lifting in a small smile. He gestured with his spoon at the vacant seats. Take your pick, Drake!

Okay.

So.

Here he was in a situation without Bry, who was usually his mouthpiece, a job of her own choosing by the way. Ary would just have to do his best with being host of this ice cream parlour table. Now that he finally emptied his mouth, he said, “Hi.”

Here he was in a situation without Bry, who was usually his mouthpiece, a job of her own choosing by the way. Ary would just have to do his best with being host of this ice cream parlour table. Now that he finally emptied his mouth, he said, “Hi.”


The agreement to allow him to sit, even if it had been a quiet one, had Drake beaming even more and he shot his mother an extra thumbs up as he plopped himself down at one of the tables across from Aryan, his legs curling up under him so he sat hunched in his chair while he reached out with his spoon to take his first bite of creamy goodness. Mmm.

With his mother clearly appeased and leaving, Mandrake's attention turned fully to Ary as he watched him curiously as he chomped on a gummy bear still in his mouth from his first bite. They were even extra chewy when they got all cold on top of the treat. At the greeting, he gave a smile back and swallowed his bear. "Hi! What brings you to Diagon Alley today? Do you have older siblings going off to Hogwarts or just here to observe in anticipation for your turn?" Even if Aryan did not seem a big talker at school, that didn't generally stop Drake. He was used to his sister being on the quiet side as well, so perhaps those who let him put all the words out there was just what was familiar. "I can't wait until we're off to school. Have you been trying to figure out already what house you might be in? I'm hoping Slytherin or Hufflepuff so it's easier to get out to the grounds."

Another scoop of treat went into his mouth, giving the poor other boy a reprieve.
