Here at the Leaky Cauldron things can get pretty busy, and, for Phro, this is exactly the case. For this purpose, she kept he changes made by Louisa so that customers may come to the counter to place their orders, which keeps the chaos down and keeps 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 Shiradou, the former owner, 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, Phro will come by and give Tarot card readings.

OOC: The piano is free for all to use so have fun with that and enjoy yourself. Also, please remember that the shopkeeper does NOT take orders at the tables. Due to the Leaky Cauldron being unmanned at the moment, simply assume that your character placed their order at the Bar and Service Counter.

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.

”Help with – oh no. No, they’re healing.” He said tugging his sleeve down over the bandages. While Tallulah wasn’t a healer anymore, the woman knew how he felt about them. AKA he avoided them at most costs and had since Elodie died. ”The Firestorm spell can do some damage,” he said trying to sound upbeat. Because the mere memory of fighting that fire still caused him nightmares. So he was grateful when she moved the conversation topics on, even if the topic itself wasn’t an easy one. It seemed that too many people weren’t talking about it and Conley couldn’t help but worry about affects of that. ”So you were at Hogwarts then?” Most of the action had been there, he knew. ”Or at the hospital? I’m sure it was an all -hands on deck sort of thing.” Merlin knew he had wished they’d had a few more hands to help with the fires in the Ministry. If they had, perhaps the Technology Center wouldn’t have been demolished.

”Oh good. What are you having? I’ll go place an order…” They could talk about her new job when he came back with food.
Tally couldn't help but let out a loud chuckle when her friend explained his daughter's actions. She knew that children at that age couldn't help but grab whatever they could get their precious hands on, though the idea of it being Radhika's way of telling the man to not work was amusing. "What a precious little bean," she responded fondly. "She clearly just wanted quality time with her daddy."

Her brown eyes did not waver from Conley's sleeve as the man tugged it down. She of course knew how he felt about them, but the momma bear healer in her did wish he would have at least let her look at his arm more closely. There were no doubts that the wounds were healing, but another pair of eyes on it never hurt. For the moment she quietly nodded and was willing to let the urge to examine the damage go for now. If he scratched at the bandages again though, she was going to take a look whether he wanted her to or not.

"Yes, I was at Hogwarts. It was, at the time, where the most help was needed with people being injured left and right. Then they needed help transporting everyone to St. Mungo's too. Needless to say, it had been a long night." Just thinking about it all was tiring (or maybe everything that had happened today was finally catching up to her), but it was something that needed to be discussed for a variety of reasons no matter how difficult it was. "You were at the Ministry, yes? I heard through the grapevine what happened --" she was about to mention his injury, but quickly decided against it "-- whilst everything else was going on."

The mention of ordering was welcomed. "I'll have some fish and chips. And maybe come back with something stronger than tea as well?" After all, the work day was over and she did have something to celebrate.

If he had said something odd, Gabriel thought nothing of it. He was just relieved that Brody still wanted to spend time with him, after...months of silence. Didn't they get along great? Why hadn't Brody wanted to get together sooner? Friendship was difficult, he supposed...and, he had to remind himself, Brody was busy with his degree and his work. And other friends, probably. Maybe Gabriel could get himself introduced to Brody's other friends. Then...he could have more friends, too.

"Scary?" he repeated, having zoned out a bit from the dragon conversation. "Yes, I suppose they are scary." If dangerous meant scary. It didn't mean that to Gabriel.

"My colleague...friend? Missa," he replied. "She wanted a roommate, and I'm not particularly attached to my flat, so..." He shrugged. It was really not a big deal. At most, having a roommate would prevent (or at least discourage) random drop-ins from his mother or sister. "My ma is a bit overbearing," he said. "Isabella is great, though. She got a job at WU Edinburgh, fancy professor office and everything." Between Isabella and Rafael, his own dropping out of university made him look like a slacker. But who'd gotten a job first, eh? He had. "Are you close with your family?"


Of course Brody still wanted to spend time with Gabriel. He just couldn’t shake this altogether new and strong feeling of being attracted to him. Brody was used to flings and flirting so excuse him if this attraction was messing with his brain cells. Despite juggling a limited social life, work and studies, he’d have easily made time to hang out with Gabriel but he’d purposely chosen not to chase the Auror-in-training. True, Brody had even seen Gabriel around the Ministry at times but always headed in the opposite direction. His reasons being he didn’t want to seem overeager about wanting them to hang out and he needed to process this strange feeling.

Yes, by scary Brody meant dangerous. Truthfully, he wasn’t very fond of dragons. An eyebrow arched questioningly at the same time he felt a sinking feeling taking over him. Had he been too hopeful for something more than friendship between them? Yes. But maybe Gabriel wasn’t into guys after all. “I hope you two manage to find something you both like,’’ he replied, forcing a smile. As for family? Brody wouldn’t know if all mothers were overbearing having never grown up with one. Aunt Tallie was as close as a mother he had. Isabella though… Brody liked the sound of her. “Isabella sounds like the ambitious sort.” Exactly like he was.

“I am. My uncle spent the most part of his life raising me. He met Aunt Tallie at the Ministry when she joined the Sports Department. They married sometime after.” Brody shrugged. “They’re all I have.” Just to put this out there: the Coordinator rarely spoke about his family, the exception being Annabeth because she was the closest friend he’d ever had. “Have you ever ran into uncle Lucas at the Ministry?” he asked curiously.

Gabriel shrugged. "Thanks," he said. "We've been looking for awhile now...can't seem to agree on anything, so who knows what we'll find?" Truthfully, Missa seemed to be dragging her feet, and Gabriel could not fathom why. It had, after all, been her idea. Maybe she was tired of him? YATI training all day, and she realized if they were flatmates that she'd have to see him even on weekends? Whatever. Moving, not moving, whatever. "Isabella's incredible," he agreed with a proud smile. "Easily my second favorite sibling." He knew he wasn't supposed to have favorites but...his twin had to be his favorite. Obviously. He wasn't crazy.

He listened quietly as Brody chimed in about his own family, his eyebrows raising the tiniest amount. No siblings? That sounded lonely. He frowned at his friend's question, trying to remember if he knew any Lucas. Or, honestly, anyone in the Sports Department.

"I don't think so," he mused. "I don't think I've even been to level...what level is that, again?" Six? Or seven? There weren't many reasons for him to venture to other levels, except in emergencies, or visiting friends. And if he didn't have any friends in the sports department, obviously he couldn't visit them! Hah! "Do you think it's...easier, to be closer to your family, since it's small?" he asked. His own family was enormous, if one counted extended family, so having only a few family members to keep track of...that seemed more foreign to him than when he'd moved here and it snowed the first time.

”Yes, I stayed behind.” He wasn’t a fighter and someone had needed to hold down the fort. ”Frankly, I’m afraid what might have happened if I hadn’t been there. Goldwasser…” His mind traveled back to how he had found Sachin in the Ministry that day when he wasn’t supposed to be there. ”He’s very powerful. The fire he started. I’ve never seen anything like it.” His hand rubbed his bandage forearm as he thought about the painful after affects of the fire. ”Sachin was there too. I was so worried he’d…” He trailed off knowing Tally would understand what he was implying. It was making him a little emotional. It was hard not to get emotional when you thought about loosing the person you loved. Especially when one was intimately familiar with that experience. In fact, they both were.

He cleared his throat. ”Moral of the story. Goldwasser is still out there, so please. If you see him, don’t engage. Send for an auror and let them handle it.” He gave her a tight-lipped smile then wrapped his knuckles on the table. ”Fish and chips and a pint. On it.” He got up from the table and came back a bit later, floating a plate of fish and chips and a large salad, along with two pints of cider. He levitate them onto the table and then retook his seat. ”So,” he said reaching for his pint. ”I believe you have news?” The short trip away from the table had done wonders for Conley’s disposition.

Brody would not know what looking for an apartment felt like, or the hassle involved. All his life, he’d lived with his aunt and uncle. He was very comfortable there and didn’t see himself moving out any time soon. What he did see was that Gabriel wasn’t interested in him, not in the way Brody wanted him to be. The realisation dejected him but he would try not to show how he felt. After today, he’d most likely revert to going out of his way to avoid the man again, this time for his own sanity. Maybe he’d get over his crush on Gabriel. Hopefully.

“What’s it like having siblings?” Brody wondered aloud. He had spent most of his childhood and early teen years by himself. Mostly. And it had been purely his choice. His closest friend perhaps was Annabeth and that was only because she refused to quit bothering him. Over time, Brody had gotten used to her constant leech-like presence, and had eventually come to terms with the fact that he enjoyed her company.

“Level seven,’’ Brody confirmed with a nod. “Well, I hope you meet him someday. Uncle’s a very decent and cool guy. Even if he’s old.” Brody cracked a small smile. Lucas was only 41 years old at the time. He considered Gabriel’s question as he rested an elbow on the table and absently tapped at his temple with his index finger of the same hand. “It is… I guess that’s because I’ve always had a good relationship with my aunt and uncle? I suppose it doesn’t matter about the size of one’s family though, as long as you get along well with everyone.’’ Gabriel’s question had made him think about families in general now, something he’d not taken into consideration before. “I mean, I know there’ll be fights and so on but I think the important thing is making up with each other again.” He shrugged. “Dunno if I’m making sense.”

Gabriel shrugged. How to describe having siblings? "It's like...built-in friends, I guess," he said after a brief pause. "We're all--there's four of us--very different, but we're pretty...tolerant...of each other. Like, my oldest brother, he..." he paused to make eye contact with Brody, because this was important stuff, "He's a squib, so he's had to teach all the rest of us all the Muggle technology stuff." Which, in some cases, was pretty handy. E-mail was much faster than owling. Airplanes were faster than brooms. That sort of thing. "And then Isabella, she's a genius, but she's not obnoxious about it, and she gives good relationship advice." Which was weird. He didn't think Belly had ever actually been in a relationship. She just liked to talk about his.

And then his twin. How could he describe Rafa to Brody? "Rafa and I are really different, too, but we're usually in sync about the important things," he said with a nod. "It's weird living on a different continent than him."

He tilted his head when Brody continued talking about his own family. Even if his uncle was old, it was interesting to hear about a smaller family. It seemed...mostly the same, honestly. "I'd love to meet your family someday," he agreed with a small smile. "You make sense, don't worry."

All the while Gabriel spoke, Brody sat there listening keenly and trying his best not to stare at the young man opposite to him. Sadly, it did not work and the younger fellow found himself constantly wanting to {and actually sneaking a few glances} and Gabriel’s mouth. He really hoped Gabriel was oblivious to this. However, there was a point when the YATI actually sought Brody’s gaze and you bet ya that Brody held that gaze. He nodded at intervals to show that he was listening, and really, he was.

The DIMC Coordinator was surprised that Gabriel chose to share that he had a Squib brother with him. He knew that some still tried to hide this if there happened to be a Squib in the family. But Brody found that he wasn’t judging and simply nodded before commenting on the Muggle technology stuff. “The way Muggles survive without magic is impressive, actually. I’d say your brother is not really missing out on anything by not being able to do magic.” Did Gabriel know that he himself was Muggle born? He chuckled dryly. “Isabella sounds like someone handy to have around during a relationship crisis.” Maybe Isabella could have given him some tips on how to make Gabriel interested in him… Brody sighed inwardly, reminding himself that he wasn’t going to waste his time chasing Gabriel since it was obvious the other guy wasn’t interested. “You must miss Rafa when he’s away.”

However, Brody couldn’t help but brighten a bit when Gabriel mentioned that he’d like to meet his little family. “That can easily be arranged,’’ he remarked, forgetting temporarily his plan to avoid Gabriel after today. “Aunt Tallie and Uncle Lucas enjoy meeting my friends… even though I haven’t got many.”

Eye contact was fantastic. What was the saying? You can tell a lot from somebody's eyes? Yeah, Gabriel could tell a lot. Like...Brody was paying very close attention. Like...closer attention than Gabriel had been paying when Brody was talking. He blinked and looked away for a moment, before meeting Brody's gaze again.

He let out a breath of relief as Brody responded very positively to his explanation of his family. They were a lot, and after not mentioning his oldest brother to anyone in London, it was a relief to finally share that with someone. "She's honestly handy to have around any time," he agreed, the corner of his mouth twitching into a wider smile. "You should meet her, she is a university professor in Scotland now." He nodded some more. Yes, he missed his twin. A lot. He tried not to think about it, honestly. He'd never mentioned it to his brothers, but he hoped they'd move to Europe. Especially now his mother and Isabella had moved.

"I look forward to meeting your aunt and uncle!" he said. "I...don't have many friends, either." Like...he had four? Was that the right number? He tried to list them in his head, but the number seemed astonishingly low. Hopefully he had more than that.

He let out a breath of relief as Brody responded very positively to his explanation of his family. They were a lot, and after not mentioning his oldest brother to anyone in London, it was a relief to finally share that with someone. "She's honestly handy to have around any time," he agreed, the corner of his mouth twitching into a wider smile. "You should meet her, she is a university professor in Scotland now." He nodded some more. Yes, he missed his twin. A lot. He tried not to think about it, honestly. He'd never mentioned it to his brothers, but he hoped they'd move to Europe. Especially now his mother and Isabella had moved.

"I look forward to meeting your aunt and uncle!" he said. "I...don't have many friends, either." Like...he had four? Was that the right number? He tried to list them in his head, but the number seemed astonishingly low. Hopefully he had more than that.


Gabriel got that right. Brody certainly was paying attention. He got the vibe from Gabriel that family was important to him. The Coordinator could understand that for he felt the same. However, when the other man blinked and looked away, he wondered if a mistake had been made by holding the eye contact for so long. Not even when Gsbriel met his gaze again did he stop wondering.

Little did he know about the relief Gabriel was feeling just because he understood that there was a Squib in the family. No one chose if their family members would be capable of magic or not so Brody cared about anyone’s blood status nor their magical abilities or lack thereof. Brody’s eyes trailed to Gabriel’s lips again which were very noticeably moving into a wider smile. “Oh?” Quite the pity Isabella didn’t teach at the Edinburgh campus; he’d have seen her very regularly. “What does she teach?” Portuguese? Because Brody was going to need a tutor since he planned to avoid Gabriel.

While Brody was secretly thrilled that Gabriel wanted to meet his aunt and uncle, he was surprised that the other man didn’t have many friends. “Why not? It’s difficult not to like you. I mean…” He tried to look as though he weren’t the one who liked Gabriel a little too much. “You’re an okay guy.”

"She teaches charms, I think." Not that he really paid attention when she talked about her research. And she only talked about her classes in very general terms. Complaining, mostly, it seemed. Maybe she talked about it more positively to other people. Gabriel wouldn't know, there was enough of an age gap between him and most of his older sister's friends that they didn't spend much time together. Which was fine. He was plenty busy still.

He grinned broadly at Brody's statement he was likeable, or rather, an 'okay' guy. "Thank you for that glowing review," he said with a laugh. "I've just been very focused on the YATI stuff. I haven't gone out of my way to really meet people outside of work." He shrugged, relaxing his grin a little. "I guess I've been kind of...avoiding the extra time commitment of having lots of friends? It can be..." He frowned, trying to think of the right word. "Distracting, I guess."

And his job was important. He didn't want to be distracted from it.

Gabriel thought? Brody eyed him curiously. Did he not pay proper attention to Isabella’s chatter about her work? Were siblings usually like that? Of course he wouldn’t know as he’d never had any siblings. Maybe sometimes it was good to tune them out, especially if they chattered a lot or were usually talking about topics that weren’t of interest.

Brody couldn’t help it, he laughed. Oh, if only Gabriel knew what exactly he thought of him… Brody wished he could tell the other guy his real thoughts but he was still going to hold himself back. “Maybe once you’re finished with training you’ll have more time?’’ His lips twitched. “Unless you decide to throw yourself completely into your job.”

At that moment, his stomach gave a rumble and immediately, a sheepish look crossed his face. “I think we’d better order some food.”

It wasn't that Gabriel didn't pay attention to his sister. It was that she talked at length about half a dozen things. And while he was fairly certain she taught charms, he thought she'd switched majors once or twice too...So maybe the charms had been years ago? No. It was probably charms. Almost definitely. Isabella was practical.

"That's the plan," Gabriel agreed. "Finish training, have more free time. Spend it with friends." He grinned. "I do love my job, though, I can't wait to actually solve things by myself." Without having to be babysat by a Real Auror. He'd be a real Auror, in not too long now.

His face brightened and he hopped up at the mention of food. His stomach wasn't grumbling, but he was always hungry. "They have really good food here," he said happily. Did Brody know this already?

Brody had no doubt that Gabriel would make friends easily. The guy was so friendly, so… easy to talk to and get to know. Well, this was his opinion, obviously. He found Gabriel to be very pleasant company, and not just for that face of his. Brody returned the grin. “In a year or so from now, you’ll see. You’ll have gotten some of those goals accomplished at least.” He really was sure it would happen even though he probably wouldn’t be around to see it. Yes, Brody was determined to stick to his plan of avoiding Gabriel lest he fall even more for him.

“Yes, that’s true,’’ the Coordinator replied with a small laugh. “The jacket potatoes are some of the best around.” And he thought that he’d have a serving of that. “Any favourite? My treat.”

Gabriel was mentally kicking himself for letting himself go so long without bothering Brody into hanging out with him again. The other man was really easy to talk to, and it was a nice change from his YATI and law enforcement friends. Plus, Brody was very encouraging.

He smiled again at the coordinator, glad he had at least one good "non work" friend even though he was busy. "Yes, and your goals, too, how is your Spanish coming?" he asked.

But on the food front...no, he had no favourites. He hadn't tried everything, to be truthful, and if Brody was going to suggest something... "Well, I guess I'll try those jacket potatoes, if you say they're so good!" Brody had good taste. Probably.

If only Brody knew what Gabriel was thinking! If only Gabriel would say what he was thinking! Brody would have felt a hundred times better and comforted knowing that Gabriel really wanted to hang out with him. Anyway, was he surprised that the other man was just as encouraging? Not in the least. Gabriel was super nice like that. “Thanks,’’ Brody replied with a smile. “Oh, it's going well. I’m getting better everyday. Or every week?” He laughed. “I’m supposed to be practicing everyday but my tutor doesn’t need to know that I don’t.” Did Gabriel remember that he was supposed to be tutoring Brody in Portuguese?

“They are! You won’t regret it.” Brody got to his feet. “Hang on. I’ll place our order.” The Coordinator would be doing all the ordering, drinks and all. With his stomach rumbling lightly again, he set off towards Bar and Service Counter.

Gabriel was super nice like that. He grinned at Brody's confession that he wasn't practicing as frequently as he was meant to. "Well, you know, when you move on to Portuguese you'll actually have to practice every day, because now I know your secret," he said with a gentle chuckle.

He--ahh--he'd briefly moved to get up and go with Brody, but the man was insisting on treating him, and Gabriel wasn't one to argue. Not about food, at least. Not before they'd had food, at the very least. They could argue with full bellies, but he found most people were less argumentative when they weren't hungry. So. He held their table, hoping Brody would be back soon.

Ah, so it seemed as though Gabriel actually did remember they had made plans for tutoring sessions. Now Brody was absolutely torn about wanting to go ahead with this plan and completely avoiding Gabriel completely. It was an internal struggle but whatever. He’d figure it out later. This was his thought as he waited for the ordered food as well as the time he spent levitating the trays back to their table.

“Jacket potatoes, roasted chicken, apple pie and pumpkin juice,” he announced, carefully levitating it all onto the table. “Help yourself.” The aroma was making him eager to dig in. “After this meal, I’ll probably end up eating again until tomorrow. Or the next day. Naturally, the jacket potatoes were the first that he went after. “You’ve got to tell me what you think about them,” Brody added, waving a forkful of the potatoes.

"Jacket potatoes!" Gabriel exclaimed with a wide grin as Brody returned. He, too, helped himself to that first. Still smiling as he chewed, he nodded approvingly at the dish. "They are pretty good," he agreed after awhile. Now, what else did they have? Had Brody said pie?

As he continued eating, Gabriel squinted at Brody. "I think I'll always be hungry, no matter how much I eat," he mused. "Maybe I need to run less." Though that meant he'd eat less, and...well, the opportunity to eat all the different food flavors was always appreciated. Though if he'd had any inkling Brody was considering avoiding him completely, the man would likely lose some of that appetite. Though the eating did give him an idea for what these two friends could do when they next hung out.

"Do you cook?"

It seemed distinctly ridiculous for a chef to go out to get food at another restaurant, especially when he was in town to check on one of his chains and all of his food was already comped. But he ate his recipes all the time. And truthfully? The Leaky Cauldron had some of the best fish and chips! And those pumpkin pasties? Absolutely to die for.

And because he knew exactly what was going to tickle his taste buds, Braylon Sawyer placed his order towards the bar - a firewhiskey to go with - before then having made his way to find an empty seat somewhere in the pub to get started on the food. And the food was... probably something he was too focused on. Because he somehow failed to see an entire table in the middle of the room. An item that was usual of restaurant settings.

A setting in which he personally worked.

But while he was making eyes at his battered fish and delicious deep fried potatoes, he tripped over a chair leg, sending his drink FLYING and his food as well. And given the distinct excitement he felt for that food, this was not something he could allow to happen.

So Braylon did want any self respecting foodie would do. And he LUNGED onto the table in front of him, sticking his plate out as FAAAAAR as he could and managing to catch half of the contents of what had been there, before LOUDLY declaring to the room. "It's okay! I saved it!"

As if anyone else cared about this ridiculous patron's meal.

“Uh huh,’’ was all Brody could muster. He was too busy helping himself to more potatoes. The important thing was that Gabriel seemed to be enjoying the meal. It was nice to share some of your favourite foods with someone, even if you planned to avoid that someone for a good while. Brody pushed that thought aside; he’d think about it later. For now, he’d just enjoy his meal.

His eyes drifted towards Gabriel again, in time to catch the other young man squinting at him. For a moment he thought that something was wrong but what Gabriel said made him laugh. “I think it has to do with your training too. I expect you lot have all these particular training sessions you have to go through.” At least Brody knew now that Gabriel liked to run. Not that it would matter; still, a little extra general knowledge couldn’t hurt.

“A bit. Mostly on weekends when I’m home.” Tallie and Lucas liked to sleep in on weekends and the annoying thing about Brody’s body was that it woke him up early then. So he put that to good use by making breakfast and lunch for the three of them. He moved onto helping himself to a bit of the pie.

Gabriel smiled when Brody laughed. His friend had a nice laugh. "Yes, but I can't cut back on training. Running is extra, I could run less." He took another bite, chewing thoughtfully.

"We should cook sometime. My aunt taught me to cook some things, when we lived by her." Maybe they could squeeze in some Spanish or Portuguese practice for Brody, too, cooking was a great way to learn all the food words. "This is really good, too, you made good choices," he added with a smile as he scraped the last of his food off his plate.

And because he knew exactly what was going to tickle his taste buds, Braylon Sawyer placed his order towards the bar - a firewhiskey to go with - before then having made his way to find an empty seat somewhere in the pub to get started on the food. And the food was... probably something he was too focused on. Because he somehow failed to see an entire table in the middle of the room. An item that was usual of restaurant settings.

A setting in which he personally worked.

But while he was making eyes at his battered fish and delicious deep fried potatoes, he tripped over a chair leg, sending his drink FLYING and his food as well. And given the distinct excitement he felt for that food, this was not something he could allow to happen.

So Braylon did want any self respecting foodie would do. And he LUNGED onto the table in front of him, sticking his plate out as FAAAAAR as he could and managing to catch half of the contents of what had been there, before LOUDLY declaring to the room. "It's okay! I saved it!"

As if anyone else cared about this ridiculous patron's meal.
There was currently a sign on her shop door that read 'CLOSED. BE BACK LATER' with a small sunshine doodle in the corner of it. Lelia had been getting hungry as the hours ticked by and since this time of the day was usually slow she decided to grab some food to eat.

Her stop was, as usual, at the Leaky Cauldron because she enjoyed the food here. She had placed her order (Hot tea with steamed seasonal vegetables and fried tomatoes) and when it was ready she took her plate to an empty table.

While she sat at her table, she used a fork to pick up a vegetable and as she was about to put it in her mouth, she noticed a movement out of the corner of her eye as someone lunged himself toward her table. "Holy Hippogriffs!" she exclaimed as she quickly pulled her own plate towards her to protect it and leaned back in her seat so that if the man crashed into her table, her food would be safe.

"Impressive" she commented after he had declared to the room that he had saved the food. Well, most of it, it seemed. "Are you okay, though? what happened?" had he stubbed his toe or something?

He really was quite pleased with himself, even with half the food gone and on the floor around the table, the fact he'd been able to show any agility at all and save some of the food was honestly a miracle. He wished his wife or kids could have seen the save. But then upon considering the personalities of his kids, he rethought that. Mav and Ever would have told him how irresponsible he was for not paying attention in the first place, Eliza probably would have hit the remainder out of his hand, Catriona would have rolled her eyes.

But Tavion or Dav, those would have been good spectators. His adopted son would have laughed, while the youngest would have at least had the common courtesy to ask if he was okay before LAUGHING.

Which uh... he was beginning to realize that after his initial excitement, he was now very much finding he must have pulled something in his back in the jump. Because moving was.. not in his cards for now.

Which was made more awkward by the fact someone was speaking to him. And drawing his attention to notice he had jumped on a table someone was using. At this, even Braylon had the sense to be embarrassed. "Oh, thank you! Sorry about your table and interrupting your meal. Your lunch good? None of that went flying, right?" The important questions. Food was priority. He skimmed over the are you okay question, jumping straight to the event. "Well, I believe I tripped over a chair. Silly, clumsy mistake. Again, my apologies."

He made no move to get out of her way. He was hoping after a few moments of stalling he'd be able to move without pain.

Maybe they could squeeze in some Spanish or Portuguese practice for Brody, too, cooking was a great way to learn all the food words. "This is really good, too, you made good choices," he added with a smile as he scraped the last of his food off his plate.


Brody never thought about his laughter to be honest. If he thought anyone had a nice laugh, it was the man sitting opposite him. As much as he didn’t talk much, Brody listened carefully and to every one of Gabriel’s words. “That’s true.” There was a shrug from him but soon an idea occurred. “I guess you could always return to running full time after training’s eased?” Right now though, it sounded like a good compromise until the goal of being an Auror was met.

The DIMC Coordinator actually stopped chewing and stared at Gabriel for a few seconds before realising what he was doing. He then quickly lowered his gaze to his plate, his brain working furiously. Gabriel’s offer definitely meant that he wanted them to hang out again. Did Gabriel know how much Brody wanted to jump at the offer and say ‘yes’ right away? “Pull it together, Hawthorne. Think this through.” Yes, he’d planned on avoiding Gabriel for his own complicated reasons but could he really do so now with that cooking suggestion? Brody looked up and smiled as nonchalantly as he could. “Okay, that sounds good. Whenever you’re free.” Maybe Gabriel was busy for the time being. “Oh, thanks. I’m pleased that you approve. You’ve got calories to burn on your next run AND training exercise.”

Yes...Unfortunately, Gabriel enjoyed his runs with Tomasz. It was good bonding, for their friendship. But, maybe he could cut back. Only run a few times a week. That seemed...still respectable. Maybe.

He hadn't realized how invested he was in the idea of them cooking together, showing off their respective cuisines, until Brody paused before answering his very non-specific invitation. "Okay, I'll stop by your level, then? Or I guess I could owl you," he said with a smile. Or text, if Brody was up-to-date with Muggle communication methods, too. They really had a lot of options. "Yes, I'll definitely need to wait several hours before trying any sort of running, though," he added with another laugh. Delicious, but very filling. He'd need a nap later. He wiped his face with a napkin and sat back, feeling fairly full.
