Default Park Bench


Placed strategically along the north side of the street, there are about five park benches on either side of the street offering a place for the weary to rest their tired feet for a moment. There is one situated between Potage's Cauldron Shop and Slug and Jiggers Apothecary, one between Madam Malkin's and Flourish and Blotts - and then on the opposite side of the street, between Magical Menagerie and Eeylops Owl Emporium, and Quality Quidditch Supplies and Scribbulus Writing Implements. The fifth bench is right before Gringotts Wizarding Bank, clearly placed there to let you know you've reached where the street begins to curve.

Take a seat and take a load off if you like, these benches are the perfect spots to sit and chat with friends while you take a break from shopping, or if you've come from Florean's you might be looking for a spot that you can sit and finish off your ice cream before it melts. Try not to be a bench hog though - if you're here for too long the benches themselves might get sick of you and nudge you off so that somebody else can sit for a while too!

"Not much," she said in reply to his question. "Just soaking up some sun. I feel like I can't get enough." Surely he'd be able to relate - they both had been locked in that room together for a long time. Louise had always liked Morgan, but she felt like they had gotten to know each other a little better over the last term at school. Suppose being locked in a room together would do that. "How have you been?"
"Yeah, I know what you mean," Morgan nodded in understanding as he siiiiipped his milkshake. Mmm that really hit the spot. "I could spend everyday outside." And he pretty much did. He'd do that even on a normal summer to be quite honest, but this year it felt even more urgent after being locked up for months.

"I'm good. I'm cool." Sure, he'd been better and he was still working through things, but no need to get into all that and ruin his cool rep. "You doing alright?" he asked, genuinely wanting to know. Everyone locked up had a really rough time, he was sure. Yes, including him. But also.. "Can you believe I still have to take my OWLs?" Morgan was less than impressed. At the very least after the trauma he endured, he should be exempt!

A few minutes after buying the ice cream he had in his hand from Florean's, he found himself at this bench. He watched as a squirrel bounded past and slowly ate his ice cream. Alfie seemed to be getting used to Britain. It was nice, except for the weather. And the food. And the fashion. His previous home in the French Riviera was amazing, with its Mediterranean weather, great local food and top-end fashion. Still, Britain was nice. Sort of.

A gentle breeze blew, ruffling Alfie's soft brown hair and blowing a few fallen leaves across the street. Autumn, his favourite season, was coming.
With her school shopping three quarters of the way completed and the fact that this day was BEAUTIFUL and full of sunshine meant that she had decided to treat herself to an ice cream. So she headed into Florean’s to get a mint ice cream. She was saddened that they didn’t have a banana flavour which was her Favourite flavour but that just meant she’d have to get her Appa to go purchase it at the local store.

Ice cream in hand, Lisa gently bounced in her bright pink gum boots as she headed further down the street until she reached a park. She stopped in her tracks and glanced around before taking a lick of her ice cream. “Such a beautiful day,” she muttered to herself before noticing a boy sitting on the bench with an ice cream as well. He looked around her age AND he also seemed to like ice cream so she approached him. “What flavour did you get?

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

SPOILER!!: Wanted Minjae to meet Ash again T__T

People who used Unforgivables were either full of hurt or full of pain. "If you use Unforgivables, I think you go to Azkaban. Which probably sucks. I'd rather get hit with a nasty life-altering curse than go there for any amount of time ever." And she had suffered some nasty curses. But going to Azkaban- that was something she never, ever, ever wanted to do. Never ever ever. NOPE.

Daniel saw the world way different than Ash did. Like, what he was taking away from this conversation was 'wow everyone is traumatized can I go there?' Even Ash, who was basically the queen of reckless, foolhardy, and lowkey dumb life choices, she could still understand from this that Hogwarts = not good for her, not cool, very bad. But she didn't feel like telling him that she thought he might be miserable like his brother, so she said nothing about his misplaced enthusiasm.

But the enthusiasm for her fake tattoo was not misplaced. It was very correctly placed. Which was totally the opposite of misplaced. "I got it at some party I went to around here. I was gonna get one in the muggle world, but this was super convenient. Of course it's temporary. It would be illegal for me to have a real one when I'm only thirteen. And I know I don't look like it, but I'm actually a law abiding citizen." A law abiding citizen of Australia, which wasn't where she currently was, but you get the point. Ash laughed. "When I'm sixteen though, I'm gonna get lots of real ones." Because tattoos were the highest form of art, except for all the other forms that Ash liked equally much. And nobody would be able to stop her. Well, her father technically could because she needed his permission to get tattoos before she was an adult, but he wasn't exactly the boss of their household. As long as she didn't ask for an embarrassing tattoo that the press would make fun of her father for, permission and funds were just about guaranteed. And Ash was well aware that her father's uncaringness and willingness to let her do whatever she wanted made him a not-so-great father, but she was not gonna complain. At least he wasn't an overbearing micromanager. It could be worse.


“Azkaban….” he mumbled as his eyes went to a bird taking flight from the ground near them. ”I heard about that place before” had Minjae mentioned it? Or had he heard it over the wizarding radio? He could not remember exactly. ”Is that place really that bad?” he asked after hearing Ash say that she’d rather suffer from a life-altering curse than get send there. If it was really bad he hoped he never got send there.

Perhaps the future Hufflepuff did see the world in a different way than the other older students at hogwarts. He had not experienced what they had and because of this he found it hard to sympathize. His mind was only set at finding information about what had happened and learning about every possible area of magic that he could.

The thought of getting a tattoo himself had never even crossed his mind. Perhaps that was because he was still a child. And he didn’t think his parents would allow him to get one, not even a temporary one.

”What kind of tattoos do you want?” he asked curiously as he looked behind Ash and inwardly groaned when he saw who was walking toward them but pointedly ignored him. "Are magical tattoos different than muggle tattoos? You should get a fire breathing dragon!" He breathed.

Holding a brand new cauldron in his arms, Minjae had called out for his brother that they were leaving. But upon realizing that he was being ignored he let out a soft sigh before making his way over to the bench. He did not look good at the moment, there were dark prominent circles under his eyes from his lack of sleep and the spark in his eyes had disappeared a long time ago. ”Hey Ash” he greeted the girl with a smile that did not reach his eyes no matter how much he wanted to. ” He’s not bothering you right?”

"Yeah, Azkaban sucks. It's kinda overboard in my opinion. Still, I have no pity for people who break out of there. They're kinda overboard too." Ash wrinkled her nose. They and their dark magic, torture, and foul smell! She did not like them at all. Especially not the ones she knew personally. Especially not the ones who had cast Unforgivables on her. Even Lucien Rosier, evil, overrated, and too-fond-of-curses as he was, hadn't done that. So they got the same amount of pity that he did. Zero. None.

Back to tattoos though. The coolest things. "I want a lot of them. I'm gonna get a phoenix. And then I'm gonna get another one. And also the grim reaper. That would look way cool. And phoenix wings. And none of them are gonna be in color. Magical tattoos can move or do other cool stuff, but if I wanted one, it would be secret because I can't show any muggles." Which was fine with her, because she didn't really see a way in which magic tattoos were better than muggle ones. She wasn't really into having her tattoos move around, thank you very much. But Daniel didn't look like he was focusing on her anymore, and she could tell. So she turned to see what he was looking at. Oh! There was Minjae. Looking way older than he should- jeez, he wasn't even twenty, and he was walking around like a traumatized old guy. And sure, he was traumatized, but he wasn't old, so that didn't even make sense! Also, he was fake-smiling at her, as opposed to real smiling. Hmph. Maybe his face muscles didn't remember how to smile- that would be sad! Ash gave him a real smile, because she liked him and also to demonstrate how you were supposed to smile. "Hey Minjae! I'm not bothered, don't worry." Even if Daniel was technically bothering her, she didn't actually care. She liked to talk! About everything. Especially tattoos. "Did you see my cool fake tattoo that I got? It's a phoenix." Sure, they might be leaving, but they were absolutely not going anywhere without everyone involved getting to look at her awesome tattoo! Maybe it would cheer Minjae up, so he would walk around like a happy cloud instead of a sad raincloud(said Ash, ironically one of the biggest sad rainclouds in existence). A kid could hope.

Alfie gave his ice cream another lick as he observed his surroundings. It was certainly a very beautiful day. From the sun sitting high in the sky, to the people going about their day and business. He couldn't help but mutter the opening two stanzas of the famous French poem Les Feuilles Mortes by Jacques Prévert. Eight whole years of intense lessons in literature had really gotten to his head. Still, he thought it was rather fitting, considering that the title did mean 'The Autumn Leaves' in English. He swung his feet back and forth over the edge of the bench. He hated the fact that he was short enough to do that. Sure, he was already tall for his age, but just a couple inches higher wouldn't do anyone harm, would it? Statistically, it would probably be around two years before those wishes came true.

Alfred noticed a girl around his age walking towards him. Was she going to talk to him? Hopefully not. Then he realised he needed new friends. All his old friends were in France, getting ready to go to Beauxbatons. He sighed, but looked up when she asked a question. "Strawberry. What about you?"

She took another lick of the refreshing mint ice cream as she looked over at the other boy who had the pink ice cream. Her bet was that it was either bubblegum, strawberry, or rose flavored but he didn’t strike her as someone to get rose flavored ice cream. And besides rose ice cream sounded kinda gross to her. She crinkled her nose and winced as her mind froze over. Brain freeze. Eeeeek. It took her a few seconds and then she was fine. Strawberry? Strawberry was a good flavor.

Nice. I like strawberry...” she said before taking another lick of her ice cream. To be honest, there had yet to be an ice cream flavor that she had found that she hadn’t liked. “Mint. It’s my favourite flavor. Refreshing but.... sharp.... I like it but I find it gives me brain freeze quicker than the other flavors.” More honestly she got brain freeze because she was just eating it very quickly in order to stop it from melting.

Know any tricks to stop it?” she asked. “The brain freezing?

”I heard that some of the Neo-Alliance had escaped from that place” he said, shaking his head in disbelieve. ”Not only is it a terrible place but security is terrible at their job! I would have fired them a long time ago” he crossed his arms over each other and huffed, thinking that the security were humans.

But the topic on tattoos seemed to be something that they both enjoyed. He personally did not think he’d ever want one but he did appreciate art. Too bad he was a bad drawer though. His only flaw LOL . ”I like the phoenix” he admitted. ”It suits your name since phoenixes are reborn from the ashes!” And after everything she had went through last year he supposed that she had been reborn again. She did have a point about that if she got magical tattoos that she could not show muggles ”But wouldn’t it be cooler to have a magical tattoo though?”

Minjae looked from his brother to Ashley and gave her a ‘you can tell the truth, you know’ look because he doubted that Daniel was not bothering her. He then placed the cauldron down on the ground behind the bench as it was getting heavy and leaned forward to see the fake tattoo that Ashley was showing. ”Cool” he said with a small smile. He straightened his back and thought for a moment. ”I’ve been thinking about getting a tattoo myself actually” he admitted , ignoring Daniel’s look of ‘MOM AND DAD ARE GOING TO KILL YOU’ ”What do you think will fit me?” he asked the girl. ”Oh! Before i forget, Ash , do you have a phone?”

Before i forget, Ash , do you have a phone?”


Ash laughed at little bit inside. She didn't want to offend Daniel or anything, but he was NOT in charge of the wizarding government just because he was way rich. She was also way rich, and the wizarding government had gone right ahead and let Rosier come into power anyway. But she let the kid have dreams. Ultimate world domination was a fun one. Yup.

Tattoos though. Tattoos tattoos tattoos. Tattoos. Tattoos tattoos. Tattoos...
"Exactly! It fits the name, and the symbol. Makes way sense. So when people ask me about my tattoo, I get to give a big-inspiring-speech. And they will look impressed." And at the end, she would stand in a cool pose and walk away, and people would be in awe. Having people look up to her. What a fun dream. Yup.

Ash cackled. Hehehe, Minjae was getting a tattoo, and he was asking her for advice. Let's have fun with this, shall we? "You could get a big dragon sleeve tattoo like most people. Or you could just have the word "Muggles." tattooed on your forearm in black and make people winder what that means to you and why. Or, you could get a tiny frowny face on your ankle and confuse people. Or you could get a video game character, and tell people around here that they are a famous wizard who did something great for humanity. How confusing do you want to be here?" Ash smirked. "I can't pick. Daniel, what do you think?" HAHAHAHA. Anyone thinking Ash was going to give normal answers to this question was dead wrong. "I think I would go for the video game character. You couldn't show muggles because it would be cringy, but imagine some random wizard. He doesn't know what video games are. He thinks this is a historical figure. He freaks out trying to figure out who he forgot and if it is going to be important to his job. But you explain it to him after a while, so that you don't accidentally drive him crazy or anything." Wasn't that a great idea? She didn't think Minjae would like it though. In her dreams. Yup.

Ash rolled her eyes at Minjae jokingly. "Of course I have a phone." Duh. She was thirteen. How was she supposed to tell her bodyguards to pick her up from the beach after she had snuck out to go surfing with her friends? How? Was she supposed to bring her owl to the beach? Explain, Minjae. "Do YOU have a phone?" Maybe not, but he was like, wayyy rich, and like, an adult now, so he probably did. And a muggleborn. "What for?" Were they going to exchange numbers so that they could talk about video games? To be honest, Ash didn't know that much about Minjae other than he was rich and he liked video games. That was about it. Maybe he was going to be a gamer or something. Who knew.

Contrary to what he looked like, Alfie certainly enjoyed rose ice cream. Before he tasted it, it sounded pretty gross, but now it was probably his second favourite ice cream flavour after strawberry. he took another lick of his ice cream and winced because of a brain freeze at almost the exact same time as the girl had hers. He found those kind of coincidences rather funny.

"Strawberry's my favourite flavour." Alfie gave a slight grimace when she said that she was eating mint ice cream. "I don't really like mint. To me, it just tastes like toothpaste." Toothpaste was nice, but not to eat. Do not eat toothpaste. Alfred had had a mildly traumatising experience at age seven after eating toothpaste during an 'experiment'. But as they always say, good researchers take risks. "No, I wish I did." Brain freezes were so annoying. It was why he always ate his ice creams so slowly.

"Strawberry's my favourite flavour." Alfie gave a slight grimace when she said that she was eating mint ice cream. "I don't really like mint. To me, it just tastes like toothpaste." Toothpaste was nice, but not to eat. Do not eat toothpaste. Alfred had had a mildly traumatising experience at age seven after eating toothpaste during an 'experiment'. But as they always say, good researchers take risks. "No, I wish I did." Brain freezes were so annoying. It was why he always ate his ice creams so slowly.

Oof. At least she wasn’t alone in her brain freeze mode. She was kinda glad (but also felt bad) that he had gotten brain freeze too. At least they could suffer together. Relief came quicker than expected and she sighed. Lisa was glad when the brain freeze passed. A relief of warmth flooded her mind and then her entire body. It also willed her to take another bite. She’d have to eat more slowly to avoid it. Strawberry was his favourite flavor. “It’s a good one. I like it too.” She nodded and noticed the wince. She didn’t think, at first, it could have been related to the mint until he mentioned that he didn’t like mint. “Ah. That’s fair... I wouldn’t want to eat toothpaste..” she said, eying the ice cream in her hand. Did it actually taste like toothpaste before or did it simply taste MORE like it because he had said it? She turned her nose up slightly before licking the ice cream again. “I like banana milk too but its more popular back home.” That was probably tied for her second favourite ice cream.

Lisa pouted when he mentioned that he didn’t have a trick for brain freezer. “Ah... bummer.” She made a low whistle in disappointment before taking another lick of her ice cream. “There has to be a spell to counter act it right? What if you were able to make your head really warm so that the freeze that you feel gets ... zeroed out?” she supposed as her mind went to work. You’d have to have the right temperature.

It’d be cool.... Do you go to Hogwarts?” she inquired curiously.

She was also way rich, and the wizarding government had gone right ahead and let Rosier come into power anyway. But she let the kid have dreams. Ultimate world domination was a fun one. Yup.

Tattoos though. Tattoos tattoos tattoos. Tattoos. Tattoos tattoos. Tattoos...
"Exactly! It fits the name, and the symbol. Makes way sense. So when people ask me about my tattoo, I get to give a big-inspiring-speech. And they will look impressed." And at the end, she would stand in a cool pose and walk away, and people would be in awe. Having people look up to her. What a fun dream. Yup.

Ash cackled. Hehehe, Minjae was getting a tattoo, and he was asking her for advice. Let's have fun with this, shall we? "You could get a big dragon sleeve tattoo like most people. Or you could just have the word "Muggles." tattooed on your forearm in black and make people winder what that means to you and why. Or, you could get a tiny frowny face on your ankle and confuse people. Or you could get a video game character, and tell people around here that they are a famous wizard who did something great for humanity. How confusing do you want to be here?" Ash smirked. "I can't pick. Daniel, what do you think?" HAHAHAHA. Anyone thinking Ash was going to give normal answers to this question was dead wrong. "I think I would go for the video game character. You couldn't show muggles because it would be cringy, but imagine some random wizard. He doesn't know what video games are. He thinks this is a historical figure. He freaks out trying to figure out who he forgot and if it is going to be important to his job. But you explain it to him after a while, so that you don't accidentally drive him crazy or anything." Wasn't that a great idea? She didn't think Minjae would like it though. In her dreams. Yup.

Ash rolled her eyes at Minjae jokingly. "Of course I have a phone." Duh. She was thirteen. How was she supposed to tell her bodyguards to pick her up from the beach after she had snuck out to go surfing with her friends? How? Was she supposed to bring her owl to the beach? Explain, Minjae. "Do YOU have a phone?" Maybe not, but he was like, wayyy rich, and like, an adult now, so he probably did. And a muggleborn. "What for?" Were they going to exchange numbers so that they could talk about video games? To be honest, Ash didn't know that much about Minjae other than he was rich and he liked video games. That was about it. Maybe he was going to be a gamer or something. Who knew.


……..He should have known that Ashley would not give a normal answer. Why he had even asked her for tattoo ideas was beyond him. It was his own fault really. “Right….. remind me not to listen to your ideas again” He said. “Although i do like your idea of a video game character” he said, scratching his non-existing beard thoughtfully and feeling some stubble instead. Ugh he had to shave again. The idea of the character , not the famous wizard and confusing people part. That was simply ridiculous.

“Because” he said as he leaned over the bench to grab Daniel’s bag and took out a notebook before ripping a page out of it. He ignored his brother’s curses at him before he scribbled down his number with a pen and handed it to Ashley. “You ,me, Moose and Kale. We went through something that no one will be able to understand no matter how hard they try.” He put the notebook back in his brother’s bag before stooping down to pick up his new cauldron. He had been trying to find the other two but so far had had no luck. “If you ever feel the need to talk during the summer you can always call me. Even at night” Phone calls were faster than owl posts. “But when you’re at Hogwarts you can always send an owl” he turned to Daniel next. “We’re leaving in an hour”he said and with a final wave at Ashley he left the two alone.



Daniel was still flabbergasted that his brother was planning on getting a tattoo that he at first was not even paying attention to the designs that Ash suggested. He heard the ideas but he was also thinking about how his parents were going to give a long speech to Minjae if they ever found out and …they would.. …he’d made sure of that. CUE EVIL LAUGHTER in his mind. It was only when she had called his name that he looked away from Minjae and towards her. “i think he should get ALL of those tattoos!” He said , crossing his arms over each other before grinning at Ash.

It seemed that Ashley was more interested in talking with Minjae though , which he did not mind so he let them talk for a moment. In the meantime he had opened his bag and pulled out the book he had been reading earlier but in reality he was listening in.

When his brother left, Daniel had no desire to read anymore. “I want ice cream” he said as he stood up from the bench . “Buy me one cause i have no money with me. I’ll pay back later”

Ash fake frowned. "I think they are great ideas. Of course, you could just find a cliché off of the internet..." She crossed her arms and frowned some more which quickly turned into smiling and then into giggling at the idea of Minjae getting the tattoos she suggested. Hehehe. "Exactly, Daniel. He should definitely get all of them." What great ideas she had.

Did Minjae have to make everything deep and sad? Like, wasn't that her thing? Anyway, she would definitely be using said phone number, quite possibly every day. Not that she was going to say that in front of Daniel. It wasn't his business, and the fact that she called her friends to cry every night would ruin her persona. Her persona was funny, and doing okay despite the trauma. A storyteller. Someone who had made peace. Someone who recovered. A survivor. It was safe to say that version of her was just a persona, nothing more. So Ash didn't say anything. She just nodded. A nod is worth a thousand words. A glance was worth a trillion. "Bye Minjae." Goodbye. One of the only words that mattered. 'Goodbye', 'I'm sorry', and 'what happened/what have they done to you' were the most important words in the universe.

ANYWAY, back to her persona. She rolled her eyes. Daniel was great and all, but did he KNOW what he sounded like? Like, who did her think he was talking to? She wasn't his servant. "Sure I'll buy you ice cream." Even though she doubted that she would get paid back. It was her father's money anyway, and she didn't even like that guy. He wasn't the absolute worst, but he was pretty bad. "What kind do you want?" Didn't Daniel just have ice cream? Well, that wasn't her problem. Ash wasn't known for her good decision making skills. She wasn't his parent, or his mom friend, or his babysitter. It wasn't her problem if he had two ice cream cones or one. Nobody needs to play by rules they don't create for themselves.

She’d have to eat more slowly to avoid it. Strawberry was his favourite flavor. “It’s a good one. I like it too.” She nodded and noticed the wince.

Lisa pouted when he mentioned that he didn’t have a trick for brain freezer. “Ah... bummer.” She made a low whistle in disappointment before taking another lick of her ice cream. “There has to be a spell to counter act it right? What if you were able to make your head really warm so that the freeze that you feel gets ... zeroed out?” she supposed as her mind went to work. You’d have to have the right temperature.

It’d be cool.... Do you go to Hogwarts?” she inquired curiously.

Brain freezes were the worst. Alfie sighed in relief as it quickly passed and the cold in his head was replaced by warmth. "Yeah, I've liked strawberry ever since I was little." He was still 'little', but that was besides the point. "Make anything strawberry flavour and I'm pretty sure I would like it." Well, not anything, because that would be disgusting. More like any food. Probably not any food either but... it was complicated. Any sweet food. Yes, that made sense. "I had an experience with that when I was seven. I ate toothpaste. Probably why I don't like mint flavour." He didn't want to talk about it. He was sick for days. Maybe a week... or two. He would probably have to tone down the crazy experimenter in him when he went to Hogwarts. It was magic after all. He didn't want to get boils all over his face or have radishes for feet or anything. Alfie grew up around magic, and he had seen some crazy things. Absolutely crazy. Most things he had seen were so crazy that he was probably desensitised to stuff like that by now.

"That could work." He set his mind to possible ways to counter brain freezes. "Wouldn't making your head too warm be a bit dangerous though?" It didn't really sound like a good idea. You could, quite literally, fry your brain. "I'm starting as a first year this year." Was he excited? Yes. Was he nervous? Yes. What did you get when you combine excited and nervous? Recklessness?

"Do you go to Hogwarts too?"

"Do you go to Hogwarts too?"
She listened to Alfie speak about how long he had enjoyed strawberry for. She assumed when he said little, he meant little little like four or five. “Really? So do you like strawberry flavored medicine? I would always have to beg my parents to get the bubblegum flavored one when i was little.... I couldn’t do the grape or cherry flavor... those were just gross.” She crinkled her nose in disgust, remembering the terrible flavors of cough syrup that she had to have whenever she was sick. Bubblegum and strawberry were much better. “I do really like strawberry jam.” That was yummy on toast.

She cringed when he mentioned that he had eaten toothpaste. “Yikes... That... does not sound fun.” That was all she could offer because he looked like he didn’t want to talk about it and she didn’t want to press him. It seemed like a ... traumatic event ... potentially.

He did have a point. It could get pretty bad if you didn’t control the heat. “I think so but I think there may be a way to control the temperature of the spell or charm. Don’t want it to be too hot so that its dangerous but maybe there’s like a warming charm that you can control?” she offered her thoughts on it. If not, they could always invent the spell. “If there isn’t one... we could co-invent it. That would be pretty cool.

Oh so he would be her fellow classmate? Exciting! She nodded in response to his question. “I’ll be a first year too. I’m excited to go.” She paused briefly before quickly adding. “I’m Lisa. Lisa Nam.
