Default Seating Area

Right as you exit the areas set aside for the main buffet, the juice bar, and the dessert bar, you'll come into a section filled with enough tables and chairs to accommodate the large number of employees working at the Ministry of Magic. There's really nothing special here. The tables and chairs are typical of those you'd find in any other cafeteria, with the exception of the multi-colored theme that seems fairly evident throughout the food court. So grab a chair; a red one, blue one, yellow one...whichever you'd like! Enjoy your meal, and please--come again!

As he looked for a table, he sang the bridge of something he'd heard on the radio earlier over and over. No idea what it was. No idea who it was. But, dude, it was easy to sing loudly.

"YO. I'm sittin' with you, mate." No time for questions, because Theophilus had plonked himself down to sit. "Y'ight?"
Bennett looked up when he heard singing. Had someone left a radio on? Not that he minded at all -- it sounded fairly catchy.

Oh. Hello there...

"Sure... go right ahead." Not that it mattered, the man was already sitting.

"Looks like quite the lunch." he said slightly envious. It was a little much for him, but burgers did hit the spot on occasion.

With a salad in hand, Angelica made her way to a table with a mental sigh. Today has been a disaster so far, it could have gone better from the start with her having to apparate back home at the last minute because she forgot to lock her place up and forgot her keys and then because these things happen in threes. Stumbled her way through her assignments so far.

Thank Morgana it was lunch time

Even if she had only a salad today.

Laleh was late to lunch today, and the thing is that when one was late to lunch, things tended to go bad quickly. For starters, the nice food ran out extremely quickly, and then they'd be left with soggy sandwiches. Not that they didn't love sandwiches, it's just that they didn't like them soggy.

Then, soggy sandwich in hand, they would realise that the whole seating area was full and there's no free seating places. Sighing lightly, they scanned the room for a free seat, ideally opposite someone who looked friendly. AND SUCCESS.

They walked until right opposite the person with their salad and smiled. "Excuse me," they said. "Mind some company?"

Still thinking about whether she should have brought something a little better but eating it none the less. Angelica was not really caring that she was more by herself than most here. True she was still new and has not really talked to anymore much besides Anya who was nice.

Lost in her thoughts she had not even realized someone was right opposite her.

"Oh no not at all. Please sit if you want"


Tho that sandwich they had looked pretty well disgusting if you asked her

Dalton rarely took much time for his lunch - eating a sandwich quickly and downing some coffee in the Level 3 break room was his usual idea of a lunch break. But today he needed some more space: not only had he forgotten his sandwich, but his testing was not going to plan and he was frustrated with it. Distancing himself, attempting to turn his thoughts to other matters seemed like a good idea today. Maybe then, when he returned to the laboratory he'd be better positioned to find the answer.

Grabbing some food, Dalton chose a table in the corner of the seating area, as far away as possible from the rest of the Ministry staff. He was not in the mood for making small talk with strangers - not today, not ever.

It was just as well then, that Guilia wasn’t a stranger. ‘Cause the Italian wasn’t going to miss a chance to sit with the man when she actually saw him out of his Lab. So much so, that even before she had sat down opposite him, while her stilettos were still click-clacking on the floor, Guilia had called out in greeting. “Dalton! You are out of your laboratory!” Her English was getting better, if still very formal. Partly in thanks to Eliora, partly in thanks to Dalton.

“You have made my day brighter, already.” She carefully sat down opposite him, carefully sorting the skirt of her dress to that it wouldn’t crease before she crossed one leg over the other and got comfortable. Looking up at him, she opened her bottle of water even as she shot him a teasing smile. “How is your day going, Sunshine.” AKA, ’your face says you are having a horrible day; tell me about it.’

It wasn't until his name was being called that Dalton looked up - he heard the click of high heels approaching him, but the likelihood that it was someone who actually wanted to engage with him was very slim, and therefore his head stayed bowed. And even when his name was called, it was more the voice that caught his attention - the accent was particularly recognisable.

"Guilia," he greeted, offering the woman one of his rare more-smile-than-grimace looks as she sat opposite him. If he'd been a laugher, then he would have laughed at her comment. His eyes lit up a little, though, even if laughter didn't leave his mouth. "You must be having an awful day if the sight of me cheers you up."

His least favourite question, though - how was his day. With a little shrug, Dalton took a sip of his water, as much to buy him time as it was to quench his thirst. "My tests are frustrating me, that's all. What about you?" Because he would much rather listen than talk.

Giulia smirked slightly, still amused that Dalton could manage to last so long without giving her a smile. He reminded her of her cousin, Nero, in that way ; but really, if she thought about it further, that was pretty much where that comparison ended. Nero was nice and all, but she genuinely preferred Dalton’s company. She was sure that Nero would agree, finding his wife much better company than his younger cousin.

Pulling her attention away from thoughts of her family in Italy before she made herself homesick, she looked across the table and rolled her eyes slightly but she saw that twinkle. “Do not be so hard on yourself, Dalton. You will always make my day better - even if it is already good, it would then be great.” She nodded, before sipping her water again.

Watching him, her eyebrows furrowed slightly at that little shrug he gave her. Hmm. Bad day. She knew the answer even before he told her, but she nodded sympathetically all the same. “I hope that time away from your desk, will clear your mind for returning.” It didn’t come out quite as she had meant it, but she hoped he knew what she meant. If not, she doubted he would call her on it. Dalton was too nice.

“And today is going well, thank you for asking.” She had gotten caught up with her filing, had made the reservations for the conference room that had needed to be done, and filed in the training logs for all of the Level 3 employee’s that had updated and completed the newer training modules. She was- what was it that they had said? - on a role?

Nothing ever was good about this ministry. The fact that she had to step one foot in there again made her skin crawl. Every single time she had come there something bad happened. After leaving the law area because of her little episode in Diagon Alley she decided to swing past the food court for some coffee. She needed it after the evening she had, but it was morning and a new day, so the coffee would probably help.

It would at least help until she made it home and back to her bed. Thankful it was summer and she didn't have to worry about classes, though she hadn't worried about them for a few months and was lucky she hadn't failed out of school. Her parents would be livid if they knew she wasn't being the perfect student and daughter again, but thankfully they were out of town and would be for a while.


For now, she was going to just sip her coffee and try to not make eye contact with anyone.

It had been approximately 1.5 years since he had attempted to try and eat in the food court. 18 months of anxieties regarding public spaces at work. 78 weeks of wondeirng if soemone else was going to dump pudding all over him again and then laugh. 390 days of making sure he brought his own lunches so he wouldn't have to leave the DOM. It was time to force himself to move past this particular bad memory. He was somewhat adjusting to his glasses, and while his support cane was still tucked into a jacket pocket like a safety blanket he wasn’t ready to get rid of, Adam had been managing to move around more independently than ever since the star explosion that blinded him. That didn’t mean he wasn’t walking into things or knocking things over, but the accidents happened with less frequency now.

He had managed to grab and pay for a cheese sandwhich and bottle of pumpkin juice wihtout any misshaps and felt that perhaps being up in the food court wasn’t going to be so bad. He’d only paniced a little as a few of his collegues moved around him, grabbing their own food. But the little voice in the back of his head reminded him that getting his food last time hadn’t been the problem. Finding a seat had.

He was trying to keep up his optimisim. While a part of him thought grabbing the food and heading back to his lab was the best option, the other said no. After all, the potion he’d been working on all night would be fine by itself for a while longer. He wasn’t needed back in the lab for another hour or so. Things were going well, he told himself. This was fine… there was nothing to be worried about, he tried to convince himself as he entered the seating area.

And stopped.

Not too far away sat Zita. He couldn’t see her face or make out anything that identified her to him, but he knew it was her. The glasses weren’t helping that much (yet). It was more like an electric current zapped him in an attempt to get his attention or a magnet pulling his compass towards an electrificed pole. Something about the woman had always drawn Adam to her. Only, he hadn’t talked to Zita months. Not since that weird night at the gala with James the peacock. If he was honest, he wasn’t sure he wanted to talk to her now. But today was all about conquering fears. Or at least that was what he told himself as had made his way up to the food court. Maybe it should be about overcoming his anger as well?

Had Adam been a skilled Legilimens, he would have wondered if Zita’s belief that nothing good with the Minsitry included him. Perhaps, it was for this very reason, he’d never ever been inclinded to learn that particular skill. Because if he had been able to read her mind, he would have turned around and walked away. It probably would have saved him a lot of trouble. But Adam couldn’t read her mind.

With a deep breath he took a step forward. And then another. ”Sita,” Adam said as he came to a stop across from her at the table.

Would her parents be searching for her at this point? Even though she was grown, she still lived in their house and they had made an agreement for her to stay there after the last time, but now that she broke those promises she wondered if she'd be finding a new place to live soon. Where would she even go, maybe her sisters?

Her thoughts stopped there because a familiar voice caught her attention, though Zita didn't even look towards him she just kept her eyes on her coffee, "Hello Adam" She was shocked he was out of his level after what he had told her the last time they had come here.

She took another sip of her coffee hoping to find the energy head home and deal with what was waiting. "Are you on a break?"

What did you really say to someone who avoided you after the last date you had?

He wasn’t sure what he had been expecting, but he had braced himself for a little more anger than Zita appeared to be expressing. She had always been so…enigmatic. So he was a bit alarmed when she didn’t bite his head off. It made him feel a little more guilty about avoiding her the past few months. It also made him wonder if she was ok. Because despite what happened at the Gala, Adam did still care about her. In fact her cared about her very deeply. It was one of the reasons he had pulled away from her. Because he had gotten the message at the gala that Zita only considered him…well Adam. He hadn’t even warranted the title of ‘friend’ when she had introduced him to that peacock – James. "Vou kould say zat.“ He said reaching down to pull back the chair across from her. He sat down, not caring that he hadn’t been invited. ”Ze potion I vorked all night on is simmering undt I had some time. I zought I might try undt ofercome a fear.”

He sat there for a moment, looking at Zita, even though he couldn’t really see her. Adam could tell, however, that she wasn’t looking at him. It made him feel awkward and foolish and wondered briefly if he shouldn’t just have kept walking. The silence hung between them for long enough to be awkward. ”Ist somezzing vrong?” he asked. It couldn’t be school, it was the middle of summer. Unless she was taking summer classes. But Adam didn’t think that was likely. Maybe…”Haf vou eaten breakfast?” he asked, concern in his voice. He unwrapped his sandwich and pushed it towards her. Consider it a peace offering.

Listening to him talk she tried to focus through the headache she was feeling, but something in his words made her look up, "You have been here all night?" Why would he work all night? People actually did that? She had been there pretty much all night too, but she wasn't going to tell him that. No need to get into what all went down that made her be in this spot this morning.

"No, nothings wrong, just was with a friend this morning and they had to head to work so I thought I'd grab a coffee while I was here." Why did she feel the need to lie to him, maybe because she really didn't want to have to explain herself and she figured he would think less of her if he knew what she had been up to in the months since the event. She had thought she was a different person, but one evening, one person back in her life and she was back to old Zita.

"I couldn't possibly take your food. I'm alright, I'll be headed out soon anyway and grab something once I get back home. You need to eat and celebrate getting out of that crazy level of yours."

”I did,” he nodded as he attempted to open his bottle of pumpkin juice. Only he had a bit of a problem with the quality control seal wrapper. Adam wasn’t surprised that she didn’t realize he sometimes worked overnight. Most people didn’t know it was a requirement, at least for some of the potions he was asked to brew. ” Ze potion I vas vorkingkt on? It reqfires ze right star chart undt moon phase to brew. Last night Chupiter began its retrograde undt it vas a new moon. Does not happen much so I took adfantage.” He was still having problems with the wrapper and his bottom lip jutted out a little in frustration.

He gave up with the bottle and pushed it away upon hearing that she had been out all night with a friend. A feeling spiked in his chest that he didn’t like feeling. He was about to ask if it was James, but then remembered the peacock was a model and the Ministry didn’t have much use for them. Instead he said, ”I did not know vou knew many people vho vorked here.” His words came out a bit more bitter sounding then he had intended, but at least he had been able to stop himself from adding that he thought she didn’t like setting one foot inside of this Ministry, but maybe she only hated the things regarding the ministry that had to do with him.

She was being weirdly nice and perhaps a bit evasive and it was making Adam feel uncomfortable. ”Eat,” he said again, although there was no heat behind his words. He nudgied the half of the sandwich towards her again. ”I more vanted to stretch mein legs zen eat,” he lied, although his appetite had left him some after spotting Zita.

Stars and things, she felt like she was back in Astronomy where she barely paid attention. Mostly she was writing notes to friends or making sure her makeup was flawless, but she remembered a little about the stars and potions class (which she wasn't much better) talking about all that jazz. "Oh right, well I hope you aren't working too hard." She couldn't help but wonder how he was able to pour the right amount of ingredients to do potions. If he couldn't see, how was he sure he got the right things? This took over her for a few minutes and she went to ask, but decided it might be rude and shut her mouth again.

"I know people, I mean there are so many that work here, plenty I went to school with." She was surprised she didn't know any of the Aurors that she ran into with her moment at that level, but maybe she was glad she didn't. She didn't need this getting back to Max after everything he did for her a few years ago.

Since he wasn't going to take no about the sandwich she picked up the half and took a bite. Her stomach grumbled showing she was indeed hungry and that was a good gesture. "Thank you" she said quietly as she thought about how much she hated she cared he hadn't called. Some of her new ways had stuck even if she was acting like her old self. She was bitter he didn't fight for her, she did have an ego and he bruised it by just letting her go as he did. He never had made it official either, maybe that should have been her sign, but now she wasn't sure what she wanted or where she was going from there.

"So since you have been here all night do you at least get to leave early?"

"So since you have been here all night do you at least get to leave early?"


Satisfaction thrummed through Adam as Zita finally relented and took the offered half of the sandwich. “Bitte schӧn,” he responded taking a small bite out of his half of the sandwich. Silence hung between them for a few moments and he was slowly gathering his courage to say something to her about the gala when she broke the silence and asked about going home early. Work was a safe subject. An easy subject, but not the subject that they needed to discuss. Even so, he answered, “Ja. Vell, in about anozzer hour. Zere are schtill a few zings zat need to be added to ze potion before it is complete.”

He got the distinct impression that Zita would not bring up what happened at the gala and if the air was ever going to be cleared between them, he was going to have to do it. He put the sandwich down. “Sita, I –“ he stopped talking for a moment and then pulled his eyeglasses off and set them down on the table as he rubbed the bridge of his nose trying to fend of his own feelings of frustrations and fear and hurt. “ I am sorry I did not…Zat I-“ He closed his eyes trying to figure out how say what he had been wanting to say to her for a while. “I do not really know how to explain this,” he sighed. He was worried she was going to storm off before he could explain himself to her. He leaned back in his chair, hands gripping each other under the table where she couldn’t see them. ”I like you,” he finally got out after long pause. He wasn’t looking in her direction now. ” It takes me a vhile to learn zat I do like a person. I do not know how to explain it. But I vas going to tell you at ze Gala undt zen,” he stopped talking, eyes in his lap.

An hour....

She looked at her watch, where would she be in an hour? She was hoping asleep and the thought of sleep made her yawn. She really should do that at some point. For now, the sandwich was hitting the spot more than she wanted to admit. It was really good. "Did you buy this here or bring it from another cafe?" Was there something actually good in this place?

Her eyes lifted as he spoke and she watched him carefully as he seemed to be struggling for words, but once those words came out it was confusion, hurt, and many other emotions that were coming up in her. They had been out on many dates over a full year and he hadn't said anything, she was always just wondering. Maybe she should have brought it up, but she didn't, she wanted him to and now he was finally saying it. How was she supposed to respond to that?

"Well I don't know what to say, I mean it would have been nice if you did say it, but you didn't and then you ignored all my messages and blew me off for how many months?" Why was she this angry about it all? Then she realized it was because she actually had really liked him.

There was the Zita he knew.

It was also the response he had been expecting. He’d heard it countless other times from girls when he tried to explain how his emotional attachments worked. He just didn’t look at women like that until he had gotten to know them a little. It was also why he had been alone for so long. It wasn’t an easy concept for people to understand. Heck, Adam didn’t understand it himself most of the time. Most of the people that Adam came to learn that he liked, didn’t give him the time to discover his feelings. It had left him guarded and closed off with only one real friend. He’d thought Zita was different. At least, he’d thought so until that night at the gala.

He sighed. ”You really zought,” he said softly turning his face back towards her. His hands were still clasped tightly together below the table. He didn’t want this to turn ugly, but he really wanted her to know. To understand why he had pulled away. ” I vould not haf been upset vith ze vay you acted at ze gala? You vere not ze Sita I know. Ze Sita I know vould not haf appeared more interested in James zan mein feelings.” He had thought she cared about him. She had always been defensive on his behalf when other people had been rude to him. She had been kind and hadn’t made him feel incompetent for needing help when they were out in public. But not at the gala. No, at the Gala she had been more concerned with how James had responded to her looks. ”It was like you vould razzer haf gone home vith him. Or been at ze party vith him. Zat his opinion vas more important. You did not efen introduce me to James as a friend.” As if she was afraid of labeling him so that James wouldn’t think Adam to be competition. Was he competition? She’d never expressed her feelings towards him either. In that regard, they were both to blame. He decided to keep his displeasure that she had insulted his place of employment and a coworker to himself. James was enough of a topic for now. But he hasn’t been able to keep a resentful tone out of his voice every time he said James’ name. ”It seemed like you did not efen notice how unhappy I vas.” It had made him question if Zita even cared about his feelings. It had made him want to punch James in the face. It made him question Zita’s motives every time they had gone out together. Because maybe she had been helpful and protective because she was only worried about what other people thought of her. Maybe she had only continued to go out with him because she didn’t want to be known as the girl who dumbed the blind guy. He’d realized that most of their encounters had been about her and her feelings. Adam hadn’t minded at the time because, well, he had thought it was her way of letting him learn who she was. But at the Gala, she had been a completely different person.

He knew he should stop talking, but he couldn’t. His knuckles were starting to hurt and he forced himself to unclench his hands and place them on the table. ” Maybe, I vas vrong undt ve are not efen friends. Maybe am I nothing to you. ” He had tried to keep his voice level and calm, although he hadn’t been able to keep pain out of it. ”I hope I am wrong, because you are not nothing to me. I did not reply to you, because I vas trying to understend how I feel. Trying to understend vhat ve vere- nein are.” There had been other reasons as well. An increased work load, he had gone home to Germany because his father had needed him, but he was quite certain that Zita would see all of those explanations as just excuses. He didn’t want to give her excuses. Sitting here with her, he realized he’d made a big mistake and he refused to believe that their relationship was completely over, even if it just meant they were only friends from here on out.

He shook his head as if trying to dislodge the thoughts stuck there. ”It vas vrong uff me to not reply to you undt I apologize fur it. I vould really like ze opportunity to make it up to you. If you vill let me." He really wanted to demand an explanation about James, but he didn't think it a good idea at the moment.

Zita sat there and listened, she didn't move, she didn't make eye contact, she didn't change her breathing, though her blood was starting to boil. Was he really going there with her? What was he trying to even prove, that he was right in this? Why had she not introduced him differently? How the hell was she supposed to know how to introduce him it wasn't like she truly knew what they were. She had no clue if they were just friends, dating, support groups, she had no clue. How dare he start lecturing her like she was a kid, she knew the age thing was a problem for others but was it for him?

Her headache that had just gone away was back as her blood pressure was surely on the rise. Squeezing her cup trying to keep herself calm made the cup break and coffee go everywhere. She didn't even care that it splattered on herself. "How should have I introduced you, Adam? The guy I have been going to dinner with for an entire year? The guy who I'm not sure really likes me? He's never even truly kissed me or invited me back to his place after a date?" She wasn't an innocent girl for sure and she thought he knew that about her, but at this point she wasn't even sure what he knew.

"James is a close friend of mine and I enjoy his company, I'm sorry if you were so jealous or threatened by him that you couldn't see that." She knew what he meant, but picked to ignore it because of shew as so mad at this point. She didn't like being lectured especially when she didn't even know what they really were. Her feelings were so confused by both him and James. "I was just having fun, I thought we all were there to have a good time." She wasn't allowed to get attention for how she looked now, is that what he was saying?

"NOTHING!!! Now you listen here." She never minded making a scene, she actually enjoyed it a little too much, but right now she didn't even care about the scene, she was hurt and she wasn't taking it anymore from him. "If you were nothing to me, Adam, I wouldn't have wasted a full year of my life going to dinner with you, ministry events, I waited for you to decide to tell me you liked me, to make us official. Sorry, I like to feel special from the guy I like and didn't want to be the one to make that move, maybe I should have, but it didn't seem like you wanted me to." Plus Zita Valla didn't beg for attention or labels, that should be him. "You were trying to figure out how you feel? The Gala was in JANUARY this is summer, it took you that many months to figure out how you feel? That really shows that you didn't feel the way I did. " She felt stupid for even being this emotional over this.

She got up and finally got a napkin to wipe up the coffee. "Make it up to me? Here is how you can make it up to me. Grow a pair and make a move." She got up from her chair and started to walk away.

Well, this was going well, he thought sarcastically. Something hot hit his hand and he pulled it back shaking it a little to get the liquid off. Hadn’t he just explained to her why he hadn’t done any of the things she was yelling at him about? Why was he surprised that she wasn’t understanding? Nobody ever did. But she hadn’t exactly invited him back to her place either. Or indicated she wanted him to make a move. She’d told him once that people had taken advantage of her and he had wanted to make she wouldn’t have any reason to think that he was trying to do that, so he had waited for her. Apparently making sure he was respectful had backfired on him.

As Zita’s voice rose in agitation and volume, Adam tried very hard to keep calm. He knew he loathed James, but it was the word ‘jealous’ that hit him like a slap in the face. Was this jealously he was feeling? Perhaps it was, because the mere thought of that peacock made Adam feel like Reil had taken over his body again and he was uncontrollably angry. He knew there was something more about James then Zita was letting on. ”James is not chust a friend. I might be blind Sita, but I am not stupid.” He felt the need to defend his feelings. Because maybe James was her friend, but she certainly wasn’t just a friend to James. Every little thing that James had done to irritate Adam at the Gala had increased the man’s impudence. Every compliment and flirty-phrase had been a hammer to the wedge his mere presence had shoved between Adam and Zita. The man had known what he was doing. Worse, Zita had let him do it and it sure had seemed like she had enjoyed it. Her accusation that he didn’t care about her the way she cared about him? Well, she hadn’t cared that her or James’ pleasure and fun at the gala had come at Adam’s expense. ”Undt it vas not just his company you enjoyed.” His own voice was rising a little now, because his worry about talking to her was slowly turning into anger fueled by his extreme dislike of James and Zita’s yelling at him. It was like she found no fault what-so-ever in her actions that night. Everything was his fault. Only he wasn’t the only one at fault here. It just seemed like he was the only one willing to swallow his pride and apologize. For the first time he wondered if perhaps their age difference really was a problem.

He heard Zita stand up and move. If she was storming off, he wasn’t exactly in a position to follow after her. Even with his new ugly glasses sitting on the table between them, there were too many variables to navigate. His head/ears followed her movements as he tried to discern from the sound of her footfalls if she was leaving, but then she was back. And she was still yelling

Yelling and he couldn’t get in a word in edgewise or think things through. Which was, perhaps a good thing. Because clearly Zita believed he thought about things too much, whereas he felt she didn’t think things through enough. There was never any thought to a consequence to her actions. But as she was yelling him to man up and do something, it was his friend Jory’s voice telling him to be blunt about his feelings because, how had Jory put it? While Adam was clueless, Zita just seemed to be guarded.

On instinct he reached out and grabbed her by the wrist as she tried to walk past him because even though he was still mad and hurt, he didn’t want her to go.

He held her wrist firmly but not harshly so she couldn’t pull away as he stood up. He leaned towards her, blue eyes locked on hers as if he could really truly see her. He knew she was mad and hurt, but then, so was he. What she didnt know was that he had wanted to kiss her since the day she had shown up at his work with that baked good. He had wanted to kiss her at the gala and a dozen other times before that. But everytime had felt wrong. It still felt like the wrong time, but he knew that if he didn’t do this now, he probably never would have the chance to do it again. He let go of her wrist and cupped her face with both hands as he closed the distance between them. His breath caught moments before his lips touched hers. The kiss was gentle, careful, giving her the chance to pull away, but with enough conviction that he hoped she wouldn’t.

"Did you just insinuate that I thought you were stupid? I'm sorry Adam but it is very rude of you to assume anything, you aren't me, you aren't in my head." She was getting angry at him and letting her feelings get the best of her. 'Fine you want the truth? James Summers was an exboyfriend, my very first boyfriend actually. One that I deeply cared about but was too young and dumb to realize it. I really screwed things up and hurt him. Something I could never be forgiven for and have spent many years punishing myself in ways for hurting him the way I did. We are friends now and I am grateful that he even allows that." She knew James could have just hated her and been done, Merlin knew Liam did. She had quite a bit of enemies from her younger days. Now it seemed she might be gaining one more and her heart hurt thinking that it could end that way, but she was stubborn and that stubborn would not back down.

What was he getting out, not just the company she enjoyed? What was he trying to say? Her head wasn't clear enough to really comprehend it and she wasn't in the mood to figure it out either. She needed to go home and get some potion for the headache that had started as well as some sleep, but she couldn't go anywhere, no, she was stopped by his hand on her and she turned to argue, but he had made a move. One she had been so frustrated with that he hadn't made sooner, but one that was being made now. She felt him close the gap between them and the scent of his cologne grew stronger as he leaned in and placed his lips to hers. Her mind raced trying to comprehend the meaning behind it all, but she did close her eyes and lean into him as she accepted the kiss and kissed back.

His comment hadn’t implied that she thought anything of him. All it had meant was that only someone stupid wouldn’t have noticed there was more to Zita and James than either of them had been letting on at the party and one didn’t need 20-20 vision to see it. He didn’t reply to her though. There wasn’t much he could say about it anyhow when she was clearly so angry. But just exactly who was she angry with? Him? Herself? James? The world? Adam wasn’t sure anymore. As she explained about her and James, it was frighteningly clear that Zita still had feelings for the man and that she somehow, in some way still felt obligated to him. The idea made Adam’s stomach roil. It probably should have been a big flashing caution sign telling him to turn around this instant and leave.

Only, Adam knew how hard first loves were to get over. In fact, he believed that one never truly did get over them because Merlin knew his own had left a scar on his heart that had never fully healed. Ignoring the warning signs flashing all over the place telling him to run, Adam focused on the fact that Zita felt compelled to tell him the truth. It meant something right? Perhaps she did care for him more than he had realized. Perhaps it meant she did feel some remorse for her actions at the party. Or perhaps it was just Adam grasping for straws and some sort of silver lining to a terrible night and what had been turning into a terrible morning.

Or maybe he was just being his normal hopefully optimistic self?

When he leaned in to kiss her, Adam had fully expected Zita to pull back and slap him. In fact, he had somewhat braced himself for it. Instead, he was shocked to find that she was leaning into him, kissing him back. Oddly her reaction caused him to tense even more. But only for a second, because he was soon deepening the kiss, a hand sliding into her hair as he held her there, trying to put every emotion he felt for her into a single kiss. He could taste the coffee, a bitter note that gave way to a spicy and sweet sensation that drove him crazy. He didn’t want to stop kissing her, only he had to, because he was at work. When he pulled back, he was slightly breathless, but managed to whisper, ”I do not presume to know anyzzing about you.” He bumped noses with her softly, still trying to catch his breath. ”Because you all ze time surprise me.” With his face this close to hers, he could almost see her clearly and he was struck by how pretty she was. But it wasn’t just her physical appearance he was recognizing. The way she had opened up durring the fight made him feel that this might have been the first time he’d seen the real Zita.

His hands slid down to rest on her shoulders. Feeling bold, he asked, ”Dinner?” Then added, ”Tonight. Mein place.” Maybe it was odd that one moment they were yelling at each other and the next they were kissing. It wasn’t to him. He had always liked strong females who weren’t afraid to speak their minds. Besides, she had told him to make a move and so he had. Now? He was making another one, because his invitation hadn’t really been him asking. ”Vhere you kan kontinue to yell at me if you vant,” he joked, his lopsided smile forming on his face. He stepped back as he reached for his glasses which he slipped back on his face. He’d stay and continue arguing with her, but he had to get back to work or his potion would be ruined and he really wouldn’t be able to cook her dinner tonight.

She wasn't prepared for the kiss, it wasn't at all what she thought would happen with this encounter but she didn't mind it either. Feelings that had been there coming back, thoughts of how good she was doing just a short time ago and now.. this back step she had taken, would he even deal with it or think it childish and walk away. Plus with James, was her head ready to think of deciding or anything really. So when he broke the kiss she tried to steady herself with the chair near her.

Good, good, he shouldn't presume anything, no Z didn't go well with presumptions about her. Getting her focus back she moved her hands as if smoothing out a dress, though she had jeans on and there was no helping the wrinkles that had been placed in them. She had to look a mess, no sleep and trying to figure out if she should even head home. Her parents would be furious, though she was an adult she had been living in their guest house.

Dinner? She glanced at her watch, he was asking her to dinner.. tonight? "No" That's all she answered before sitting back down at the table she had originally been occupying before he came. "I am going to sit here and finish this coffee, you are going to go finish up your work. Once you are done you can come right back here and we can go out for breakfast and see what happens from there." Maybe they'd have dinner later or maybe he'd bolt before the evening even came. It was more convenient to avoid going home anyway and who didn't like going to breakfast, it was a great idea if she said so herself.

Breakfast? Well, he hadn’t been expecting that. He was a bit grubby and tired and wouldn’t have minded a shower because he was sure he smelled a little like pickled slugs and octopus powder of which he had been using in spades for this potion. A short nap would have been nice too, considering he’d been awake for close to 30 hours. It would also have given him the opportunity to show off his cooking skills. Only Zita sounded like her mind was made up. So breakfast it was. If things went well, he could cook for her some other time.

He shoved his hands into the pockets of his dress pants and simply replied, ”As you visch.”After all, it wasn’t like he had anything or anyone he had to be home for. His father wouldn’t be contacting him until next week and his plants would be fine seeing as he had watered them a few days prior. Besides, it was a good thing that she still wanted to spend time with him, right? He was so used to people leaving him the moment things got hard. It was one of the reasons it took him a while to open up to people.

If everything had gone well with the potion, he should be able to bottle it up, hand it off to his boss and be on his way in about an hour. If things went wrong, well he’d deal with that if the potion hadn’t brewed properly. He shifted from one foot to the other as he contemplated whether or not he should say goodbye and then before he could think about it too much, he bent down. With one hand resting on the table for balance and to help him judge distance and space, he leaned down kissed her on the cheek before he walked off.

~~*~~

The potion had brewed perfectly, so roughly an hour later, as he walked back to the seating area Adam was tryng to decide whether or not Zita would still be waiting for him. He wasn’t quite sure what he would do if she wasn’t. Part of him was convinced she’d probably become impatient and had left. It’s what people did to him; they left, just when he got his hopes up. Still, the optimist in him was convinced she’d have waited because she had been the one to order him to come back.

”Sita?” he called out as he walked into the general area where they had been arguing. He didn’t want to venture too far into the chairs and tables afraid he’d tumble over one that hadn’t been pushed under a table. His head was starting to hurt which was a sure sign that his eyes were getting tired. He knew he was pushing the boundaries of overworking them and resolved to take his glasses off once they get to wherever they went for breakfast.

Alba had taken a break from her cubicle to catch some lunch. She was knee deep in applications for positions all over the ministry. Trying to determine which were worth passing on to Departments Heads and which were not. She had finally gotten all caught up on her memos... a few she had to follow up on .. one rather serious complaint, but she had decided that should could not tackle that until after she had something to eat.

So after selecting a sandwich of turckey, cheese, lettuce, and tomato and wheat, she took a seat at a table that was empty and began to people watch. One of her favorite things to do. She was also rather impress with herself that she had yet to spill anything or to trip on her way over here.
