Default Pub Seating


Here at the Leaky Cauldron things can get pretty busy, and, for Louisa, this is exactly the case. For this purpose, a few changes have been made and now customers may come to the counter to place their orders, so as to keep the chaos down and keep things less hectic for the busy workers and their customers.

In the center of the room sits the baby of the Leaky Cauldron - baby grand piano that is. It is not unusual to enter the Leaky Cauldron and see costumers playing away at the piano. However, this piano is widely special, even for the Wizarding World. Years ago, Ryoma, former owner Harley's partner, built it by hand and therefore as one plays each key the ivory gives off a little puff of colored smoke that rises up into the air and form shapes that begin to tell a story to the music.

Off to the side of the room, a cozy fireplace and seating area can be found for those looking to relax a bit before heading off to the busy shops of Diagon Alley. At various times throughout the day, Louisa will drop by with a tray of assorted snacks for those sitting by the fireplace to enjoy.

OOC: Please do NOT RP for Louisa. Doing so will cause your post to be edited or deleted depending on the severity. The piano is free for all to use so have fun with that and enjoy yourself. Also, please remember that Louisa does NOT take orders at the tables. You must go the Bar and Service Counter for that.

And a very IMPORTANT warning. Please please PLEASE make sure you have read all SS rules - especially those involving drinking. There will be a zero tolerance policy in regards to this rule.

Alba was rather nervous about this dinner 'date'. It wasn't a date, Valentin had made it clear the last time they had talked that it wasn't going to be a date, and Alba was okay with that. She just wanted to enjoy a meal with and human and not her cat.

She had semi dressed up for the occasion, and by that she meant her best pair of jeans and a nice teal sweater. Since it wasn't a date she didn't go as crazy to wear a dress. But none the less she was still had a sense of nervousness about it. Would they be able to get along like they had at the Ministry? Would things be awkward now? Who knows? ... none the less, Alba was here just a couple minuets early to make sure she wasn't late.

She had grabbed a table at the pub, and waited for Valentin to arrive.

Why was he doing this again? He'd been asking himself that question since he had agreed to go for dinner with Alba. Part of him hadn't really expected to receive her owl and when the owl had arrived with a date and time, well the other part of him had snorted and said that's what he got for being nice. He had spent at least a few hours every day from then debating with himself as to whether or not he should really come.

In the end, he'd decided to come because he needed to eat and well, it wasn't like Valentin was the type to cook for himself. So, dressed in maroon chinos and a navy blue fisherman's sweater he moseyed into the Leaky. It'd been a while since he'd eaten here, but if memory served they at least had a good beef casserole. He spotted Alba and headed over. "Bonsoir," he said as he pulled out a chair and sat down.

Rachel loved coming to Diagon Alley, even of it were to just reminisce her time spent shopping for Hogwarts supplies. It was difficult to believe she had graduated five years ago. So much had happened since, the biggest being that she was now engaged. How the time had flown!

She had been in Diagon Alley for about an hour when she decided to take a break. The Leaky Cauldron was the perfect spot to do so, she decided. She went up to the counter and without hesitation, placed her order: A turkey and cheese sandwich and iced tea. Once she had paid, she made her way to the seating area. It was mainly crowded but there was one girl sitting alone nearby and she was reading.

"Hello,'' Rachel said. "Would you mind if I sat with you? I can promise that I won't be a nuisance.''

Alba jumped just slightly when the seat next to hers was pulled out. She was watching the pub's movements and hadn't noticed Valentin walk in at first. "Bonsoir" She replied with a smile. She was happy to see him. She had a worried feeling all week that he was going to try and bail on her ... or maybe it was her who was thinking she would bail on him? Either way it was an uneasy feeling all week. She was glad to be here, and even happier now that he had shown as well.

"I'm so glad you came." She added smiling from ear to ear. He was he first real friend. Even if it was early friendship, it was still a good feeling. "How's your day been?" She asked, sliding a menu over by him. She wasn't great at small talk.

That was a big smile. Valentin was suddenly very glad that he had set the record straight before accepting this dinner outing. Because with a smile like that, Valentin would have thought the worst of the situation. As it was whatever happened now, well it was on her.

But at least it seemed to be a genuine smile. It had been a long time since someone seemed genuinely happy to see him. He picked up the menu and glanced at it, already knowing he would order the beef casserole. "Busy," he said eyes scanning the menu just in case they had added something new. "Ze enti-muggle movemonts seems to 'ave reached paris. Ai was fieldeng cairrespondencé all mairneng." He dropped the menu back onto the table. "And 'ow as la exciténg whirld of human resur?"

Alba having already decided on a salad with some grilled chicken gave her full attention to what Valentin was talking about. She had honestly been unaware of the complete anti muggle movement. Of course she read the newspaper, but that was the extent of her knowledge. "Muggles really are not that bad." She added, well... maybe it wasn't best to get into a political debate on their first dinner outing together. "I still keep in contact with several friends from the muggle world." That prompted her memory that she needed to write Samantha back. "Do you think you'll have to return to France?" She ask him, she felt her heart sink slightly, she really had only had him as a friend for short while, she would be sad if he had to depart the country so soon.

"Well I did finally locate the Mysteries employee I needed." She said thinking back to the memory of Valentin helping her fiend her way. "Thanks again for helping me." She added, and then thought about that coffee incident again and blushed slightly. "And once again sorry about the coffee." Whew okay, she needed to stop apologizing for things... she had done so already.

”Ai 'ave to go bak on friday,” he said simply. He went back to France at least once a month for updates and briefings. That was one of the nice things about being a wizard. Easy travel arrangements that didn’t cost an arm and a leg and happened pretty much in the blink of an eye. ”I’m lookeng fairward to spendeng time een mon 'ome zer.” He’d only be gone for a week. Two at the most, but oh to enjoy time at home with his peoples, speaking French! Yes, Valentin did enjoy his time back in Paris. And his place there had the best wine cellar. It was really was impossible to find a good Bordeaux in England.

It might come as a surprise to most people, but Valentin had no problems with muggles. He found them interesting and insightful people, but given a choice? He’d choose magic any day. ”Le enti-muggle movémont eez unfairtunate. Truly.” He said looking around for the barkeep. Perhaps he should go up to the counter and place their orders. ”Muggles are vairy intairesténg. Ai alwais enjoyed muggle studees een schoul. Zey come up wiv ze most intairésteng wais to survive wivoot magic. I’m sure you 'ave a vairy uniqué point of viu regardeng zem, 'avéng spent zo much time wiv zem.”

”I’m glad you wairé abuhl to find whom you wairé lookéng fair.” He leaned back in his chair. He was quite happy that Alba had brought up the subject of Level 9. He waved away her thanks, wanting her to expand on what she had seen while on her quest. His cleaners had just assumed he’d been run into on the tube. Ha! Like Valentin would ever ride on the London Underground. ” How was lével 9? Eez eet as odd as le rumairs sai?”

So he was going to leave?? But it didn't sound like a permanent thing. He had to come back to do his ambassador duties here right??? Alba was fully aware in her brain she was already sounding clingy ... she needed to stop that right now.... She couldn't be ridiculous just because this was her first real human contact in a year .... "I'm sure it will great to be home for a bit." She added, everyone needed to visit home to keep their sanity .. and Alba was determined to not show her emotions on it.

"Muggles certainly have found creative ways to live! But I guess they don't know any different." Alba thought of all the things her friends had complained about ... dishes, laundry, cooking, cleaning ... and always smiled because she was able to get those things done so much quicker in the privacy of her own home.

"Level 9 is really an adventure!" She added thinking back to her time there. "So, may doors and corridors, and such strange noises that come from behind some of them that are of course locked. Alba had been more than tempted to try and open a few, there was definitely sounds of pain behind one .. but she had resisted ... she didn't want to be fired after all. "I wonder what really goes on down there." Alba had been speculating for so long. "Do you spend much time there? Or is it usually just international magical cooperation?"

"I wonder what really goes on down there." Alba had been speculating for so long. "Do you spend much time there? Or is it usually just international magical cooperation?"

Valentin eyed Alba for a moment, wondering if his comment about going home had upset her. If he it had, he didn’t know why. He’d made it clear there was never going to be anything romantic between them, but perhaps Alba hadn’t understood his meaning. Her problem, not his, he reminded himself yet again. He refused to be responsible for other people’s emotions. It often made others feel like he didn’t care, but that’s how he was. ”Oui,” he said quietly picking up the menu again just for something to do. ”Have you évair been to France?” he asked, putting the menu back down. It was clear he was futzing as he looked around again for the shopkeep. His years of working as an ambassador had taught him that eating with people you didn’t know was always easier when food was in front of one. It caused a distraction and gave time for people to come up with conversation topics.

”Oh ai don’t know abut zat,” he countered in response to her response about muggles. ”Ai think zey know mairé than zey lét on. But pairhaps yur time livéng wiv zem gives you a diffairent pairspective. I’m not sure it’s zumtheng ai could do. Live wivoot magic, évén if eet waire fair just een le public settengs.” Because he assumed she had continued to use her magic at home. "Whén you wairé livéng as a mugglé, did you givé up evairytheng? Magic? Nus of ze wizardeng whirld? Cairréspondénce wiv fami-lee and friends?” He wasn’t judging. Quite the contrary. He was curious. He’d never really met a witch or wizard who had sacrificed what Alba had. People sacrificed and did very strange things for love.

He had been expecting Alba to have not enjoyed her time in Level 9. He was again quite pleased to see that Alba was still surprising him. ”Most people find zat departmont to be – troublant," He wasn’t sure of the correct English word to use. Especially considering the talk of noises. It really made him wonder what they did in there – he thought just as Alba said it aloud herself. "I’vé nevair actual-lee bé on level 9 past ze lifts. Nevair reahl-lee 'ad a reason," he shrugged trying to keep his interest in the department hidden. "Oui, ai spend most of mon timé at la mineestry on level 5, air een la curtruhms. Air lookeng fair a good cup of coffee. Which ai do not think eez mpossibuhl to find een ze mineestry."

Air lookeng fair a good cup of coffee. Which ai do not think eez mpossibuhl to find een ze mineestry."


"I actually have never been to France, despite speaking some of the language." Her parents were insistent that she learn as many languages and she could, Alba could also speak minimal Spanish and German if she had to. Then again it had been years since she had... so maybe she couldn't anymore. "I'd love to go some day! Maybe my next vacation." She added, at least when she decided to go she would be able to get tips from Valentin about best places to visit.

"My parents live in Godric's Hallow, so I came for visits frequently and I had of course been in Diagon Alley, so I didn't give up magic completely, just more than I ever should have." She added thinking she had wasted a huge portion of her life. Well ... never again ... "I had obliterate magic from my ex's mind though." It was one the hardest things she had to do ... giving him a free pass of the previous 8 years while she had to live with what had occurred. Alba realized she had shared a huge portion of her life with her new friend.. and knew very little about him ... was that his strategy?
"What about you Vale? What's your story?" She added .. and blushed deeply ... did she just call him Vale out loud? ... would he except her nick name?? She was a little afraid he wouldn't like it.

"I can image that there is more than one rumor floating around about that department." Alba had heard a few of her own, none she really wanted to elaborate on. "I mean after all the employees are called 'unspeakables' for a reason." At least that's what Alba had heard one or two of them referred to. In fact her time in level and been short lived .. she had caught glimpses of doors and corridors but was ushered very quickly to the Department Head's office and was escorted quickly out when her job was complete.

”Ai recommend paris een ze spréng,” he said simply. A nicer person might have offered to show her around. Valentin wasn’t a nice person. He was quite the opposite. He was guarded and stand-offish. He liked pushing buttons and making people as uncomfortable as he himself often was. But there was something about Alba that Valentin was drawn too. Perhaps it was because she had a tendency to do the opposite of what he expected.

He still didn’t see the shopkeep and decided he’d go to the bar and order. ”What aré you 'aveng? Ai shall go place ur airdair at la bar.” After hearing her order, he got up and slipped off. A few minutes later he was back carrying their drinks. He set hers down in front of her and then

He knew of Godric’s Hollow, but had never been there himself. He listened quietly as he sipped his wine. It wasn’t a great wine, but it was passable and would probably go well enough with the dish he had ordered. ”Zo you are good wiv mémairy charms zen? Did you just remove la magic air did you rémové…all memairees?” Memory charms, like household charms, were not Valentin’s forte. In fact, Charms weren’t really Valentin’s specialty in general. Nope, his skills laid in non-verbal spells, especially of the defensive and offensive variety.

He twitched a little at the nickname, eyes narrowing just a little as he took another sip of wine, but he didn’t say anything. He put the cup down and watched her for a moment. Vale wasn’t a new nickname. Quite the opposite. The problem was that the last person who had called him that had been Michael and his history with Michael had been…complicated. It wasn’t something he talked about. After all, he’d been sent to England in order to get away from the scandal of it all. So…how much did he tell her? ”Mon fathair léft whén ai was vairy young.” He started with a moment later. ”Eventual-lee mon mothair remarried; mon step-fathair névair caiaiyaired fair me.” He said this with a shrug as if it didn’t bother him. He’d come to terms long ago with the fact that sometimes, people just didn’t like you. ”Five yairs ago, ai fell een love wiv a man…Michael was 'is nam.” He looked away from Alba, but his tone remained the same. ”Three yairs ago 'e died.” He left out the fact that he had watched Michael fall down those stairs after having the worst fight they had ever had. Valentin had watched him fall and there had been nothing he could do about it. [b]”Abut a yair ago, ai was sent to england. Mon boss thought zat spendéng time wiv zumone ai knu well would be good fair me. Sadly, zat 'as not wairkéd oot well.” Because Phora hated him. And why wouldn’t he? Conley had always liked Michael more.

And that was all he was going to say about Michael. If she wanted to know more, she’d have to earn that information. He picked up his wine glass again, bracing himself for the inevitable barrage of condolences that usually came after he talked about Michael. Which was why he didn’t.

"I'll have to remember to go in Spring then." She smiled, though she had hoped he would offer to show her around, she was also not surprised at his lack of response as well. She was starting to understand how he worked. "Thank you for the drink" She added taking a sip of her martini she had ordered.

"I find that I excel with memory charms, I practiced a lot before going to the muggle world just in case I would need them." Alba had made just she had mastered the art of them. "Thankfully I only needed it the one time." She had gone out of her way to insure that none of her friends saw her use magic. But having lived with Ian for so long she had assumed they would end up together forever. "I only erased the magic, there were too many people involved to erase me all together. I had met his parents and sister too." She didn't want to have to visit everyone who had seen them together and cast memory charms all over the place.

Alba had seen the twitch, the slight reaction to her nickname, but he had not verbally lashed back so she thought maybe she was in the clear .. maybe ... best not to use it too often and push the boundaries. As she listened to Vale's story she felt her heart sink for him. She had known what it was like to have loved and lost. Though Ian had not died, she had lost her love to. She wanted to reach out and give him comfort, but she had a feeling that was not what he was looking for either. "I image you've had you share of sympathies over the years." Alba was unsure how to best to proceed. She didn't want to over look his pain, yet Vale didn't seem like he wanted to dwell on the subject. "Thank you for sharing him with him though, that can't have been easy." She smiled at him again.

Alba was having such a nice time. And she was learning many new things about her new friend. At least she hoped that Valentin would consider her a friend at the end of this.

Thankfully, however, Alba didn’t wax on about how sorry she was to hear about his loss and for that he was grateful. He wanted to say thank you, but he just couldn’t. Instead he inclined his head in acknowledgement and took another sip of his wine. ” Ai miss,” he said instead. ” La man ai was when 'é was around.” And then he blinked, obvious surprise on his face, because he realized he had said that aloud. For a moment sadness bloomed in Valentin’s dark brown eyes and he had to blink a few times.

And then with a shake of his head he put the glass of wine down on the table and tried changing the subject. ” Did you go to hogwarts?” he asked, forcing his best fake smile onto his face. He realized that his standoff-ness had put a big damper on the evening and he was trying very hard not to be that person. Not tonight. Alba was being so nice to him and it had been a long time since he’d enjoyed time out with anyone. And was enjoying himself, despite what might be showing.

She was glad he had because it really made her a better person. The young woman slipped into the booth, resting her tray on the table. The aroma from the sandwich was heavenly and she hungrily dived in. But she had not forgotten about the question posed to her. “This isn’t my first time here. I actually stop by whenever I’m in Diagon Alley. The sandwiches here are to die for. You really should try one.”

-Sarah nods in agreement with Rachael saying when she has finished talking about the fave sandwiches in the pub are. Sarah asks how about making every weekend a trip to her and we can go to honey dukes for sweets after if they are not full after cake also asks what sandwich does she recommend to try next time round-

Alba sat with her full attention on Valentin. He was still in such pain, she couldn't image having to go on living with your love was not. 3 years was a long time, but it might never be long enough. Her heart hurt for her new friend. "You're still a great man." She added to his heart breaking comment, breaking etiquet she reached out and touched his hand for just a second and then withdrew it. She noticed the shift, he had obviously felt like he had shared to much. Alba wouldn't press him. She had a feeling it may have been nearly 3 years since he had shared so much with anyone and it didn't seem right now press just now. Though Alba did care enough for Valentin already to hope that he would heal enough to find love again.

And then the obvious change in subject. She welcomed it for now, he didn't want to continue with the heavy. "I sure did." Alba added with his comment about Hogwarts. "Ravenclaw through and through." She added smiling remembering her days at Hogwarts. "Which school did you attend?" Alba couldn't remember for the life of her what the name of the school in France was.

The touch of Alba’s hand, brief as it was, was both comforting and unanticipated. What was it about this woman that always seemed to keep Valentin guessing? Her ability to surprise him was something else. It was why he was enjoying his time with her. Usually he could read people better, but Alba always did the opposite of what he expected and she didn’t bristle when his responses were perhaps harsher or sharper than sociality usually liked. Her comment might have seemed hollow to some people, but in the short time he had spent with Alba, Valentin felt like she really seemed to see him so he didn’t chastise her for it. Like the use of the nickname, it didnt bother him so much as surprise him.

Instead he latched onto the subject change, grateful that she too, had been willing to head down the proposed course change. ”Ravenclaw,” he said thoughtfully. ”Zat eez lé 'ouse zat prizes intellect, no?” He never remembered much about the school. He had passed on the opportunity to study there one year. It did explain a few things about Alba though. Her powers of observation for one. ” Ai went to Beauxbatons. Ombrelune,” he added as if that clarified things. He found most people didn’t know much about his alma matter, and frankly he liked it that way. It added to his mysterious allure. While Ombrelune was, as far as he had been able to gather, a mixture of the Hogwarts houses of Ravenclaw…and that other one with the snake? – he had found people that tended towards those houses seemed to acclimate better with his personality. ”Did you énjoy yur yairs zere? Ai know last yair’s students did not enjoy ur lové-lee schoul.” Merlin knew he had received enough complaints from people during the disastrous Hogwarts stay at Beauxbatons.

"Typically yes, Ravenclaw honors intellect above other traits." She smiled, but was sure that here were several students in her house that were misplaced ... "Beauxbatons!" She exclaimed! "That's right, I couldn't think of the name." All though, now she was looking a little less Ravenclaw. "I loved school, still keep in contact with several friends." Alba loved receiving owl letters from her old school friends, though, the longer she was in the muggle world, the more disconnect there seemed to be. "Ombrelune is a one of the 'houses' of Beauxbatons?" Alba was always so curious about other schools. It was fun to learn the differences and similarities. "What other houses do they have?"

Vale had brought up the students from last school year. Alba had just started at the Ministry when all that went down, she was wasn't completely sure everything that had happened, but she had heard there was some issues with the students being in France for the school term. "You'll forgive me, but I had heard a thing or two about the headmistress there." Alba didn't want to delve too deep into it... she hadn't heard nice things about her, but she was unsure how loyal Valentin would still be to his school. Alba .. took a look at her watch... it was getting late ... she would have to leave soon. But she really didn't want to, especially knowing Valentin would be leaving for France again soon. When would she see him again? Would he send her an owl? Probably not ... that wasn't his known style.

Valentin’s false smiled turned slightly genuine at Alba’s outburst. She got excited at the strangest things. He found it endearing.
Zére are two othairs, Bellefeueehle and Papeehlonlisse. One favairs natuair, bravairy, and loyaltay. Zé othair favairs le arts. Mon 'ouse favaired academia and motivation.”
Their food arrived and he tucked into his dish with gusto. He was quite hungry. ” Intairesteng what one can lairn abut a pairson from zeir schooling yairs, non?” he asked as he pushed his casserole around to cool it. Although sometimes he wondered if the wizarding tendency to place children into houses that categorized and stereotyped people wasn’t the best idea. After all how much did those stereotypes end up steering children down one road or another? Might he have turned out differently if he had been placed into Papeehlonisse?

"Zé 'eadmeestrez zere now, eez not le one ai studied under," he said simply offering Alba the opportunity to say what she wanted to say, should she choose to do so. He wasn't above admitting that his fellow countryman might have been part of the problems that both schools experiences last year. In fact, Valentin had thought the Hogwarts headmaster had been quite sophisticated in his response to events.

He allowed his portion of the conversation to lull into comfortable silence while they ate. It was getting late and he wasn’t sure if Alba needed to go. He didn’t have to report to either Ministry until later in the day himself. ”Did you,” he asked after he made a good dent into his food. ”Alwais plan on a careair een 'uman resurces?” he asked, feeling obligated to continue the conversation now that his food was pretty much gone. He was, honestly a bit curious because it was not a field he could ever work in himself. ” Does eet keep you busy?”

Alba was facinated by the school in France. She had honestly forgotten about it through the years.. or at least just hadn't thought about it. "It's fun to learn about other schools and cultures." And then the food had arrived and she settled in to eat. It was nice to be able to eat in a comfortable silence.

"Well, I love people." She added to his question about Human Resources. "I find I can read people pretty well, which makes my job easier." She had finished her drink and her last bite and checked her watched one more time. "Valentin, I want to thank you for joining me for dinner." She had found that she was happier tonight than she has been in such a long time. "I've had a really good time." She smiled and once again reached out and squeezed his hand. "I hope your trip to France in enjoyable, but come back to us soon." She wanted to say to come back to her soon... but that might have pushed the boundaries into romance again, which she had known she had done more than once this evening. But she really had meant no harm.

"I really should be going though, have to be up early" She added. "But please owl me when you get back. I'd love to do this again." And then Alba did something even she wasn't expecting... she had leaned and gave him quick kiss on the cheek.... she blush and rose from her chair.....

"Well, I love people." She added to his question about Human Resources. "I find I can read people pretty well, which makes my job easier." She had finished her drink and her last bite and checked her watched one more time. "Valentin, I want to thank you for joining me for dinner." She had found that she was happier tonight than she has been in such a long time. "I've had a really good time." She smiled and once again reached out and squeezed his hand. "I hope your trip to France in enjoyable, but come back to us soon." She wanted to say to come back to her soon... but that might have pushed the boundaries into romance again, which she had known she had done more than once this evening. But she really had meant no harm.

"I really should be going though, have to be up early" She added. "But please owl me when you get back. I'd love to do this again." And then Alba did something even she wasn't expecting... she had leaned and gave him quick kiss on the cheek.... she blush and rose from her chair.....

Despite being completely aware of Alba checking the time and it being late, Valentin was still a little surprised that Alba was calling it a night so soon. Usually he was the one that left and usually that was because the company or the situation was boring. He had found himself enjoying the evening primarily due to the fact that Alba didn’t seem afraid to do, well, anything. She was so…contrary to social expectations and yet wasn’t rude. ”Eet won’t be a long trip.” He found himself telling her. ” I’m suré you weehl see mé around la mineestry soon. Just don’t come nair if i’m holding a cofee.” It was part joke, part truth, because he really didn’t want to have to take another suit into the cleaners for a coffee stain.

He was about to say something about sending an owl, when he was shocked by a kiss to the cheek. He immediately froze, hand wrapped around his half-empty glass of wine. The kiss didn’t upset him, because like her touch earlier, the kiss didn’t seem forced or fake. Something about it transmitted affection, support and complicity, regardless of physical attraction. There was a possibility that he was projecting the last bit, but he hoped he wasn’t. It’d be nice to have a friend in London. Or - because expecting the young lady to suddenly think of him as a friend might be too much - at the very least, someone who wasn't hostile towards him. ”Bonne nuit, Abla” he said simply, giving her hand a squeeze as she got up.

Rachel was abruptly drawn into realisation that this young woman was asking for them to grab food every weekend. Aside from that, Honeydukes was all the way in Hogsmeade… They didn’t even know each other and so for this reason, she took her time in taking another bite of sandwich while trying to formulate a polite response. Even the sip of the ice tea was to buy her time. Finally, she cleared her throat. “Well, I don’t think I’d be able to make it every weekend. I usually am on expeditions with my family for Herbology reasons.’’ Other than that, she didn’t divulge more. “I definitely recommend the turkey sandwich.’’
