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!

Did she want another ice cream? No. She was almost done with this one, anyway. Annie eyed his finger and feigned a puzzled look. As he continued speaking and gesturing, Annie returned to her ice cream though her eyes remained fixed on him. The man was very amusing to watch with all the gesturing and such.

What’s this? He was attempting to strike up a conversation with her? This certainly was a twist. “Birmingham,’’ Anita replied honestly and hoped she threw Mister here off. Especially since he was obviously expecting her answer to be another country.

Yes? No? Was he really that bad at nonverbal communication? His simple offer to buy her a new ice cream somehow completely lost in translation, Camilo had been disappointed for only a short moment before he perked up again and posed the question about her place of origin.

He was waving his arms about - obviously trying to explain the word "abroad" - when the woman finally spoke. "Oh, Birmingham! That's - wait, Birmingham???" he let his arms drop to his sides. So she was pretending that she didn't speak English, just to give him a hard time talking to her.

That was ... HILARIOUS. "Then uh, I can't believe you don't understand my hand gestures. I'm doing the Brummie dialect," he grinned.

Anita would be very inclined to agree, Sir. You were indeed bad at nonverbal communication. With all the gesturing, one would have thought you to be a hand model. A huge smirk graced her face as she polished off the rest of the ice cream. That frozen treat had been like a taste of heaven to her. Annie regretted nothing about her decision to get one. “Birmingham,’’ she repeated carelessly, now wiping her fingers on a tissue. Her nose was just a hint of chilly which was a good thing,

What’s this? Was Mister here a comedian? Anita hoped not. He was bad at jokes, even though her lips twitched. “It’s a bad accent. Your gestures need to be a lot more graceful.” Believe it or not, the woman was playing along. “Typical guys,’’ she added and shook her head with a small smile.

Trips to Diagon Alley were rare for Ax; he could count on maybe both hands how many times he had visited the street. No point, his father always said. Not when they could get better things in other, better places, or by owl order. From different other, better places.

But sometimes it did happen. Sometimes his mother had to run errands here anyway, and some of those times she brought Ax along. Today was one of those times, but given that he didn't want to be dragged around the shops like a little kid, he'd taken his newly bought quaffle and gone back out into the street.

With his brand new, expensive duffel coat dumped on the nearby park bench, Ax had taken to kicking the quaffle around the street as though it was one of those muggle footballs - which he wasn't allowed to have. His previously neatly-combed, floppy hair had been tousled to within an inch of its life, but there wasn't much he could do about the smart clothes. Ax easily made up for the prim-and-proper-ness by repeatedly booting the quaffle at a nearby shop window, as hard as he possibly could. Its post-bounce trajectory was not something he gave much consideration.
