Default Quality Quidditch Supplies


On the quiet North End of the Street lies a vibrant storefront polished to its finest where you enter a world of brooms, bludgers, snitches and much more. Displayed at the window of Quality Quidditch Supplies is the latest released broom. As you enter the shop, the shelves and displays are the first thing you notice, neatly stacked with other brooms, team posters and robes galore.

Between the side walls there are shelves filled with various Quidditch supplies and goods. Following the displays of brooms and the like, towards the back you see another section of displays, not of brooms, but the side walls of the shop are neatly stacked with broom accessories, sports equipments and matching merchandise for support. Feel free to stroll along and find what you need to aid you in your game play. Lastly, the back wall displays books and other reading materials, all to do with Quidditch and Broomology of course.

Towards the back you see another section of displays with little knick-knacks and toys perfect for all ages. Only our most privileged customers are permitted to enter the back room of the shop. Here we hold unique items and remaining stock of items that cannot fit on the displays or are in need of refurbishing. At the very back is a door to a room where the shopkeeper does his admin work. Once you've found and decided on the goods you wish to purchase, you may bring them along your way towards the counter found towards the back of the shop. The shopkeeper may seem busy, but that won't stop him from assisting anyone.

It was BROOM shopping time !!! Probably anyone who knew him would think he was nuts in that he didn't have his own broom up until this moment, but the downsides to coming from a long line of quidditch players was that they knew ALL the rules about brooms and what you could or could not bring to Hogwarts. But now that he was twelve and going into his second year, it meant he got to get his very own broom!! No more old brooms that his older family members kept around as spares.

Apollo strolled along through the aisles, wondering which one he could persuade his mom to get for him. He doubted she would consent to one of the top dollar ones that required parental consent. Maybe if he went pro or something, but just for Hogwarts he was pretty sure he was going to get the Comet 1080. But perhaps .... just MAYBE ... if he played his cards right, he could convince her that the cleansweep or jollyrocket would be a worthwhile upgrade.

This wasn't Serena's first time in Diagon Alley. It was more like her billionth time. It WAS her first time walking the cobbled stone street as an upcoming HOGWARTS STUDENT. Finally. It only took eleven years and a few months.

Dressed in the cutest baby blue sundress and some Converse shoes, the little red head slipped into the Quidditch supplies shop when her mom wasn't watching. What? It's not like she's lost. Besides, it was her mom's fault for not keeping a keen eye on her.

ANYWAY. Serena wanted a new broom. Maybe she could sneak into Hogwarts. Or have someone smuggle it in for her. Speaking of smugglers...she could make one of a stranger, perhaps.

"Looking for a broom?" she asked the boy there, tucking her hands into her dress pockets, just like her dad did, save for his prestine suits.

If there was anyone that Apollo had expected to run into in this quidditch shop it would have been Isabella or Mamie or Ashley.... speaking of, he needed to ask Bella if she was planning to try out because even though they'd been on opposing teams, he hoped they could have quidditch together at least.

Except the voice he heard was an unfamiliar one and and seemed like a bit of an obvious question. He turned to see who it was, finding a small girl who most definitely was unfamiliar to him.

"Uh .. yea... Guess you are too?"

Evie was glad to be home. Sure she had loved Hogwarts for spending time with friends and her boyfriend buuuuuuut she was very glad to be home and not worry about being locked up in a room all school year.

Currently she was facing the dilemma of whether or not she should go back to Hogwarts. Her father, Braeden, preferred her to stay at home whereas her mother was simply pushing her to try for normalcy. Looking down at the promise ring that her boyfriend had given her, she made her way into the only shop that could provide her with a sense of clarity when she needed it.

QQS. Ahhh.

She had started going here from the age of two with her mother. It had been her mother’s Favourite store and the location where Evie had bought her first beater’s bat. Now she wanted another one.... but which beater’s bat to distract her?

It was an obvious yes, but if Serena wanted a little bit of assisntance in getting smuggling her own broomstick to Hogwarts, she guessed she had to play nice? Also another first, she was going to play nice out of free will. Her mom should be proud, but she was probably outside, freaking out. Shrug. This was business.

"Yep. I need it for school," she said, eyeing the broomsticks. "Do you know which one you want?"

She had started going here from the age of two with her mother. It had been her mother’s Favourite store and the location where Evie had bought her first beater’s bat. Now she wanted another one.... but which beater’s bat to distract her?

Selena had been stopping by Diagon Alley to pick up a few items before she headed home – some sweets for her daughter, maybe a new set of gloves. It had been a rough few years for her child at Hogwarts which meant it was just as hard for her. One year they were missing, possibly never to be heard from again, the next? Well, she was grateful her daughter had made it home in one piece even if something about her was just… slight off.

And so, like most other parents, Sel found herself asking herself “Am I sending my daughter back?” And as if she didn’t have one child to worry about already, she had her best friend’s children to worry about too. She loved them like they were her own. As she passed Madame Malkin’s she noticed a very familiar face walk into a very familiar store.

So obviously, she stealthily followed Evie into the shop. Long gone were the days where the kids would drag her around the shops. They were all “independent” now.

”So,” Selena said casually, ”What are we looking for today? A new broom? Beater’s bat with your name on it?”

Apollo frowned skeptically. She needed it for school? He might not have been very old as he was only twelve but he was pretty sure that a broomstick wasn't required for school. They couldn't very well require something like that, could they? Or had the required versus recommended lists changed? Now he was doubting his recall of his supply list.

One thing he did know was that first years could not bring their own broom and well, he actually didn't know if she was going to be a first year or not. "Ideally, i want the jollyrocket. I think. But I'm probably gonna end up with the comet. First broom." He shrugged. "So uh, need it? You play for one of the youth teams or something?"

A smuggler wasn't supposed to interrogate her. This wasn't going as planned. MEH. She'd play it by play and see where it this led to.

"End up with a comet?" she reiterated, tilting her head in curiosity. "If you want a jollyrocket, why not it, then?" It was smarter to invest in something you like rather than buy something and still long for something else. As for playing, the red head nodded with a shrug. "I've played since I was tiny. As I should, considering my mum and grandpop played professional Quidditch." Just FYI. Quidditch ran in her blood. Literally.

You could not keep a Baltazar away from a broomstick and Quidditch pitch.

Turning around, she saw the older and beautiful woman and rushed to hug her. She still liked hugging her parents and close family. “Auntie Sel!” she beamed still hugging the ever classy lady. Sheesh. She still looked as young as the last time she had seen her out and about like this which must have been a few summers back. “A new beater’s bat. My old, good faithful has gotten a little scratched up recently,” she admitted with a deadpan expression. “Beat up from all the bludgers, y’know.” She nodded calmly a few times. She still didn’t know if her aunt knew she had whacked Denver with one..... not by ACCIDENT.

How are you? Taking up a new passion?

You could not keep a Baltazar away from a broomstick and Quidditch pitch.
If anyone asked him, he would probably be the WORST to smuggle and keep a secret. It wasn't really his fault, but he just couldn't really keep a straight face. Or his mouth shut. Although the latter had improved drastically in the last year given that being cursed or worse was on the line for speaking wrongly. He shrugged, "Mum thinks I won't take care of it properly or something." To be fair, it was probably an accurate assessment.

Also. What. HER family allowed her to play when she was tiny?? Apparently he was born into the wrong professional quidditch family.

"My grandmum and great uncles played professionally too. Like years ago. What team did your family play for?" Cause wow, if they had played together, that would have been cool. "Bats and Kestrals for me, although grandmum also was healer for the pride of portree for many years after she got done playing." Hmm, maybe he should talk to her about the jollyrocket, cause she could probably convince her daughter. Maybe.

How are you? Taking up a new passion?
Selena welcomed the hug and returned it tightly. Too long. That was what this felt like. Really, couldn't she just kidnap all the kiddos and keep them at her home? Did they really need to go to school?

She chuckled when Evie said that her bat had gotten a bit scratched up from the bludgers. "Well, you definitely need a nice new bat then to keep the bludgers away," she said, a slight smiled tugged at the corners of her lips, "I guess it was also very useful in keeping unsavory characters away." Yes, Selena had heard about the Denver incident. Between Denver's whining and Juliette's cackling, how was she to miss the story? Besides, it was a good thing Evie had her bat last term.

"Oh me? No," she shook her head. Heights had never been her thing. With the exception of a muggle plane - she felt much safer on one of those than a flimsy looking broomstick. "Just doing some shopping for Juliette since she's been so busy," she said, raising a bag filled with sweets.

And that's when she noticed something different about Evie.

Yes, the girl had gotten taller, more beautiful and more mature but there was something about the shiny little ring on her finger that caught her eye. "Well, that's a very nice piece of jewelry you have there," Selena said, a brow raising.

So...this wasn't going as planned. This boy seemed to have money. Too bad. If he were poor then Serena would totally bribe him with whatever broomstick they could buy. Within their age range, of course. She was still too young to have a fake ID.

"Is she right, your mum?" Serena asked. She took care of her broomstick as if it was a pet. Like one of her baby goats. Thanks to Uncle John and Uncle Kennedy, she has a broomstick fitted especially for her. Darla is exquisite. Too bad their broomstick business was still set in America.

So he was a Quidditch legacy, too!

"Bats and Kestrals are pretty great," the read head nodded. "My grandpop, mum and uncle played for Falmouth Falcons. My grandpop retired when he got too old and runs a youth Quidditch club, my mum left when she had my baby brother, she runs a creatures sanctuary now. My uncle left to work in law." A little run down of her Quidditch heroes.

She chuckled when Evie said that her bat had gotten a bit scratched up from the bludgers. "Well, you definitely need a nice new bat then to keep the bludgers away," she said, a slight smiled tugged at the corners of her lips, "I guess it was also very useful in keeping unsavory characters away." Yes, Selena had heard about the Denver incident. Between Denver's whining and Juliette's cackling, how was she to miss the story? Besides, it was a good thing Evie had her bat last term.

"Oh me? No," she shook her head. Heights had never been her thing. With the exception of a muggle plane - she felt much safer on one of those than a flimsy looking broomstick. "Just doing some shopping for Juliette since she's been so busy," she said, raising a bag filled with sweets.

And that's when she noticed something different about Evie.

Yes, the girl had gotten taller, more beautiful and more mature but there was something about the shiny little ring on her finger that caught her eye. "Well, that's a very nice piece of jewelry you have there," Selena said, a brow raising.

Evie returned her Aunt’s smile with a big one when she mentioned that she needed a new bat. She flushed a little when she referenced Denver through the unsavory character comments. “I think the incident brought Denver and I a lot closer. Can’t seem to get rid of him. He’s kind of endearing,” she admitted. Annoying yet endearing. “It did come in handy last year at school.” During the battle, she had her bat ready to charge if it came to that but she also had her wand so she used her wand first. Bat second. She was much better with a bat.

Come on, Auntie Sel. Come for a fly with me just once!” she whined, pretending to be the little seven year old that whined to her aunt when she was younger. “No, it’s okay if you don’t want too. I can’t convince Dad to get on a broom. Mum’s the only one who was able ever to get him on a broom again at school.” Her Dad also preferred the land. If witches and wizards were made to fly, then they would have wings. She chuckled at her father’s logic. Ah... Classic Dad. “Juli mentioned that she’s super busy. She’s working as a make-up artist. It’s amazing...” She really missed her best friend. While Juli had been working every day, Evie had been having a pretty relaxed holiday. She had been volunteering at a theatre but it was nothing as grueling as Juli’s summer job. “Jelly slugs! You went to Sugarplums without me!” she gasped, almost sounding like her mother.

Oh.... She noticed the ring. Her cheeks flushed as she looked down at the ring on her finger. She had been so so careful not to wear it around the house to avoid any conversations. Her Dad wouldn’t have noticed but both her brother and Mum would have. “Oh this... It’s a ring.” She started off as she tried to weave a tale to distract her aunt but she knew she couldn’t lie to her. Her Aunt was a sharp lady.

My boyfriend gave it to me... It’s a promise ring. I haven’t told Mum yet. I feel like if I tell Mum or Dad they’re going to have kittens.

Sel smiled at ruffled Evie's hair a little before smoothing it right back out. "Well, I suppose he needs some friends in his life, can't make many cooped up at home all the time," she said, smiling to herself. See, her plan worked. And her lovely cousin could yell at her all she wanted but it worked out for the best. "Well, in case you end up back at the school next term... we'll need a nice sturdy one," she said, looking around the store. "Maybe two." Just in case the first one broke.

Her eyebrow rose when she heard the whiny tone. She had a flashback of the kids being younger asking to go outside and play with all the cruppies. Had Selena caved in? Yes. Yes she did. Was she going to now? Well... look at the adorable face of Eveline Stonem - how was she supposed to say no? Luckily, Selena didn't need to respond because Evie said it wasn't necessary. "Your dad is right about some things. Usually your mum is the one who's right all the time though. Always listen to your mum. Or me. Just listen to me," she smirked.

Yes, her daughter was now a working girl. It was strange to Selena when her daughter had came to her asking if she could. Selena had thought that Juliette would prefer being at home where it was safe after the term that they had. "Well, Juli did say she wanted to keep busy... I'm very proud of her." And she was proud. Except she would be prouder if Juliette would talk about the last term instead of remaining quiet on the matter. It would help her make a decision on whether or not her daughter should go back. "Would I ever go to Sugarplums and not get something for you and your brother?" Selena asked, her violet eyes twinkling. "Saves the owl a trip if you want your sweets now."

THE BLUSH. AND THE AUDACITY OF THE CHILD TRYING TO LIE TO HER. Selena was ready to ask a dozen questions as she watched Evie fumble around before being honest. "A PROMISE RING?!"

She looked around quickly before lowering her voice. "What do you mean a promise ring?! Have I met this boy? Have your parents met this boy?" Selena's brain was working overtime as she tried to wrap it around the idea of Eveline getting a promise ring. Why were they growing up so fast? She remembered when Evie and Peter were in diapers. As she thought about it more, Selena remembered something her daughter had briefly mentioned in passing. "Is this the boy that blows things up?!"

As she thought about it more, Selena remembered something her daughter had briefly mentioned in passing. "Is this the boy that blows things up?!"
Evie scrunched her nose in reply to her aunt about Denver making some friends. She was actually glad he wasn’t a complete git. He was only one for 75% of the time. “He’s NOT the worst.... I’ll give him that..” She wasn’t going to mention to the Aunt that she found Denver remotely somewhat attractive. She’d rather die before admitting that. Okay - perhaps that was a little extreme but one got the picture, yes?She nodded twice at her aunt’s solid advice about finding a sturdy bat. “Perhaps there’s a mini one. Or I find two and shrink one a little bit more.

Evie chuckled when Selena admitted that Braeden could sometimes be right. “Don’t tell him that. He’ll be over the moon.” She paused before raising a quizzical eyebrow at her aunt. “Say - what do you actually think of my Dad?” She wanted her aunt’s opinion because she had found some notebooks of her mother’s over the summer detailing her times at Hogwarts and she was only on journal three and had read something about Alexbear, Ellie (whom she assumed was Auntie Ellie), and of course her aunt was mentioned several times. And Quidditch too. She hadn’t found mention of her father just yet; however, she had not realized that her mum had given him a different name at first. “ Of course!” she said in reply to listening to her Aunt. Selena Zabini-Riddle was a very intelligent woman. Evie knew that.

It was crazy that Juli was working. Evie was very proud of her friend but wondered if Juli kept busy because of the events at Hogwarts last year, She hadn’t dared asked her friend that yet... It hadn’t come up in conversation just yet. BIG grateful blue eyes met Selena’s vibrant violet ones. “Thank you!!! Sure - I can take Peter’s too and bring them back to him.” .....Mostly uneaten. Maybe one or two would be gone but that was the terms of the Evie Stonem delivery service. Nothing was free in life.

She had forgotten how dramatic her Aunt was when she practically YELLED for the whole world and galaxy to hear. She was certain that the folks in the next galaxy could hear them (if there was life outside of their own galaxy...).

Eveline Alice Stonem quickly shushed her aunt but Selena had already lowered her voice. Thank Merlin. Can’t have Mum or Dad accidentally walking in or even PETER. She wouldn’t have put it past her parents to send Peter after her. Perfect Peter, she scoffed in her head. Hmph. And then Selena was asking a MILLION, BAZILLION, and one questions. Dumbeldore’s BEARD! “No, I don’t think you have. And no. Juli and Peter have met him...” she began and then stopped herself when her Aunt asked the next question. “Errrr yes... I see you know of his reputation. He’s actually nice know him... once you get to know him. I swear.” Sheesh. She’d have to do some damage control based on his Aunt’s reaction.

Selena smiled to herself when saw Evie scrunch her nose and tapped it lightly with her manicured finger. "He probably says the same about you." Would she like Evie to end up with Denver? Absolutely not. That horrid family did not deserve someone as wonderful as Eveline Stonem. But did Denver deserve at least one friend? Yes. Yes he did. Maybe there was a way she could convince him to write owls or something. People did tend to lose touch once they were no longer in close proximity of each other. "Well you know I know nothing about these, which bat do you think would be best?" she asked.

"I would never tell your father that he was right," Selena laughed. Not even when they worked together on occasion. She paused as she thought about it. "I think he makes your mother very happy," she said, a bit lost in thought as she tried to figure out how to word it. "My opinion on him doesn't really matter, does it? He's your father, he loves you and Peter very much and takes good care of your mum. That's all I could ask for really." And with that she flashed a big smile at the blonde. "Are you trying to find some dirt on Braeden?" she asked, giving the younger girl a wink.

With the young girl's promise, the former snake pulled out two neatly wrapped bags (courtesy of Sugarplum's) and handed them to lioness. "If you eat all of his, I will find out." Selena had her ways. And her ways were called checking up on one of her favorite ickles. "How are you and Pete doing... after the whole ordeal?" she asked casually. Sel had been worried sick wondering how the kids were.

When Evie tried to sush Selena, her eyes widened and she was ready to yell yet again. THE NERVE. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath.

In... and... out.

Remain calm.

"And when will we get to meet this lovely, young man," she asked, trying her best to remain calm. "Merlin's left- Em is going to have kneazles over this" she muttered to herself as she took another deep breath. "Does he know I will hex him five hundred ways to Azkaban if he hurts a hair on your head?" she asked, her face serious. And there would be line of people waiting to hex him too. Selena did not have a short friends list and neither did Emma. "We'll have to find you a new bat for sure. Just in case he acts up."

Selena did not have a short friends list and neither did Emma. "We'll have to find you a new bat for sure. Just in case he acts up."

Her eyes widened ever so softly and twinkled a little. She was touched that Denver would think the same. "That's practically him admitting that we're friends," she said to her Aunt with a wide grin before falling into her own thoughts. Had she wanted Denver to admit that they were friends? If Boone knew they were friends how would he react? They were friends but kinda not friends... it was all horribly complicated at times. Quidditch; however, was much more straightforward so Evie took a step closer to the bats to inspect them. She shrugged at her Aunt's question. "I've read several articles on it but I think the bat that works the best depends on the user. I prefer the balanced bats... They're better for spin and tricks. I don't have power...." She wasn't like Snuggie who suddenly had ARMS this past summer. Holy Hippogriffs. He looked like he had been slightly photoshopped and she blushed just thinking about it. She picked up a bat and showed it to her aunt. "I wish Beater Bat purchasing was like your first wand fitting."

Evie thanked her Aunt for not telling her father and then paused when she heard her Aunt talk about her father. He made her mother very happy. Yes, that was certainly true. Her mother and father were very much in love and she so desperately herself wanted to find something like that.. And she thought she had that with Boone but perhaps it was all too sudden? Doubt crept into her mind briefly before she smirked up at her Aunt. "Oh yes... just a little dirt doesn't hurt." She spoke as she wore the most innocent and angelic look. Yes, butter wouldn't melt around Eveline Stonem. She was too sweet and innocent...

She nodded at her Aunt. "I know. I think Peter has you on his favourite contact list so I know I would be in DEEP trouble if I tried. Not worth the return," she explained to her aunt as she took the goods and put them into her bag for safekeeping. Her Aunt's next question gave her pause. How was she and Pete after the whole ordeal....? Uh. She didn't exactly know how to feel. She was excited to go back to school to learn but not at Hogwarts or any school. Evie had overheard her parents discussing alternative options but her mother was pushing for Hogwarts. "Well.... I'm okay. I think the battle was the scariest thing but I had my bat. I'm okay. Peter.... Peter seems fine. He's just focusing himself on his crush." She didn't go ahead and say WHO that crush was on. Evie was fairly certain that her brother was STILL hopelessly in LOVE with HER best friend who happened to be Selena's daughter.

Hmph.


OOf. Her aunt was really into deep breathing wasn't she? Eveline quirked an eyebrow but kept her overall facial expression neutral as she observed her Aunt. Interesting..... "Uh... How about next Tuesday for dinner? We can invite him over and then the rounds of the kitchen can happen?" she mused. She'd have to mentally prep her parents AND Boone for the introduction. She was very, very nervous about introducing him to the larger family. "Just let's not invite Denver......" If Denver and Boone were in the same room, the whole room would explode. She surely knew that would happen. At the mention of physically hurting said boyfriend, Evie smiled gratefully at Selena. "I love you, Aunt Selena. I do. He doesn't know that but he did say that he would never forgive himself if he hurt me..."

"Have you ever been in love?" she asked, tilting her head slightly to the right. She thought she hard learned through her mother's journal about a certain Diggy Greenwood. "Who's Diggy Greenwood?"

"Have you ever been in love?" she asked, tilting her head slightly to the right. She thought she hard learned through her mother's journal about a certain Diggy Greenwood. "Who's Diggy Greenwood?"


Merlin, Selena absolutely loved seeing when the children were happy. The little twinkle in Evie's eyes reminded her an awful lot of Em's when they were younger. She could feel her heart melting. "Let's keep it between the two of us, but I think you're his only friend," she said with a light chuckle. Selena didn't see miss the look on Evie's face though. The grin, or the way she could almost hear the little wheels in her head clicking and circling. She didn't find it necessary to poke into the matter though. The bats took priority.

Selena nodded as Evie explained a bit about them, pretending she was completely engrossed in them. This only reminded the former Slytherin of chats from back in school where she nodded off. "And how exactly does one get power?" One thing Selena had learned from all these years was asking a question about the last thing stated? Always worked. Plus, that blush that crossed Evie's face? Much more interesting. "Is it hot in here? Your face looks a little pink," Selena said casually as she looked at the bat that Evie showed her. She carefully took it from the younger girl, holding onto it tightly. "So we just... whack things with this?" she asked, giving it a light swing.

Looking for dirt. There was the little Slytherin that Emma had passed onto her daughter. Selena chuckled and shook her head. "I am not getting into trouble with your mother," she laughed. If Emma found out, she was fairly certain her head would be on a stick. And not in a cute someone cut out a photograph of her and put it on a popsicle stick kind of way. But a more... dead-ish kind of way. "You are too old now to be using those eyes on me!"

Ah... Peter. Selena was particularly fond of Evie's brother. Perhaps it was just his sweet nature or how he was always willing to lend a hand. Not that she wasn't fond of Evie. She had always just found Eveline more... independent. She watched the lioness's face as she answered the question about last term. "Nothing like that is ever happening to the two of you again," Selena promised. Not if she had a say and she would find a way. She did raise a brow at the crush thing though. "Our darling little Peter has a crush on someone?!" Selena exclaimed, both excited and disappointed at the same time. Deeeeeeep down inside she wanted Peter and Juliette to end up together - something she had mentioned to Emma multiple times. While she would be disappointed that Peter wouldn't be a son in law, she thought it was absolutely delightful that he had a crush on someone.

and she was ready to meddle.

"Next Tuesday for dinner it is," she said with a little nod of her head, "I'll make sure everyone clears their schedule." Not that her schedule was particularly full these days. She smiled and nodded at Evie's request. "I won't mention it to him." Denver did have a way of finding things out on his own... that was a trait from his mother. "Boys will say lovely things to girls, but they aren't always able to stay true to their words," she said, a sad look crossed her face as she gave the bat another little swing.

She froze when Evie asked her if she had ever been in love. And then the mention of Diggy. At that, she set the bat down on the display and smiled. "Diggy Greenwood was someone I thought I was in love with," she replied, a smile crossing her face. "He was lovely, charming and older... like Boone, he also gave me a promise ring." One that was long gone and returned. "But we were young and I was foolish. That wasn't real love - he was my first boyfriend," she laughed. It was honestly quite silly now that she thought about it. It was practically like two children telling each other they were going to get married at the age of 6. "I've thought I was in love... multiple times," she said, trying to keep her voice steady. She thought of what had happened between her and Derek... and what could've been between her and Ingvar. Selena had never been the type to concern herself with being in a relationship but now she wondered if she had messed up somewhere along the way. But she wasn't going to burden Evie with all of that. "Well, there's no Uncle Selena now, is there?" she said, putting on a smile for Evie.

Camilo Aguilar hummed happily as he entered the main part of the shop from the back room where he had been sorting some recently arrived items. The Snitch Snatcher board game was unbelievably popular, so he had ensured to order more to stock up before summer.

Yes, it was summer, at last!

While the warm sunlight streaming through the shop window did play a role in lifting his mood, it was the anticipation of seeing school-aged children in his store that truly made him cheerful. He remembered how much joy it gave his teenaged self to stroll along the aisles of his favourite Quidditch shop in Argentina, discussing with his teammates the best racing brooms that they would never afford. He also remembered the outstanding and hardworking flyers he taught at Hogwarts, some of whom would surely pay the store a visit. The former flying instructor and coach was slightly nervous to see his students again, but his overall state of happiness eventually suppressed the anxious feelings.

It was still early in the morning. Glancing around and checking that there were no customers in the shop, Camilo switched from humming to singing quite dramatically as he waved his wand and sent boxes of Snitch Snatcher flying across the room to their rightful places on the shelves.

It was indeed a picturesque day she had picked to go shopping and browsing. Claudine basked in the bright sunlight, loving the feel of the rays on her skin. The light breeze drifting against her dark hair and making the strands flutter only served to lift her spirits. There was no plan of which shop to visit first but her mind kept drifting to Quality Quidditch Supplies. Perhaps that was because she was often reminded that she was stuck using the School’s old brooms. She hadn’t dared to write home to ask that her own broomstick be sent to her. And since she was saving for her life after graduating from Hogwarts, Claudine decided that she could live without a new broomstick. What was one more year using the annoying old broomsticks that belonged to her School?

Still… it wouldn’t hurt to browse.

The girl stepped into the shop at the exact time that boxes started to zoom across the place. This bit of happening was accompanied by some interesting singing. She was intrigued by both and she followed the sound of the voice. As she did, Claudine couldn’t help but think that the voice sounded familiar. Seconds later, she knew why this was so.

Surprise had her rooted on the spot as she stared at the man who had once been her Quidditch professor. He was the shopkeeper here? An assistant? What? Hadn't teaching her and the others not been good enough for him? Claudine couldn’t help but feel a bit of resentment for Aguilar; after all, she’d grown fond of him in a very short time. She folded her arms across her chest and simply observed him.

He hated admitting when he was bad at something. Loathed it. Was flying or Quidditch or anything like that something Evan had interest in? Not in the slightest. But what he did have an interest in was not being bad at it. His performance in flying had been appalling. So much so he was considering dropping the class, and yet... his stubbornness would not allow it.

So here he was. Somewhere he really hadn't spent much time in before, but he was determined to find a very beginner flying book. If he was unsuccessful here, he could look at the bookstore but he always got so distracted there this seemed the best place to look first.

Heading into the store, he meandered around a little bit looking at the brooms which he... could not tell differences between, before heading towards the bookshelves to comb through the titles.

You have to wear all the padding they'll allow, her Pa had said. As if she wasn't already self conscious about being one of the few third--sorry, fourth years on the team, now she had to look like she was scared or something.

Mamie was not happy. But she'd get her padding and wear it whenever her parents were going to come to a match. And maybe for practice so she could still be nimble and stop all the Quaffles. MAYBE.

She huffed and puffed into Quality Quidditch Supplies and shuffled past the bookshelves before doubling back. Was she so annoyed she was imagining things? But he was still there, so... maybe not. "Evan Nam!!" she chirped happily, her Quidditch padding woes forgotten. "Why are you here?!" Didn't Evan hate flying?

There were a few book titles that stood out to him as something that might help with his problem. Though he also did question if books could help teach an aptitude for a physical sport like flying or Quidditch. But his logic was it also could not make him any worse, so might as well try to see what would happen.

He picked up two titles, reading the backs of both so he could weigh his options on which one, when he heard a happy voice and his name. He was not used to that much enthusiasm attached to 'Evan Nam' so turned pretty quickly. And smiled when he saw who it was. "Margaret Turov!" He did not feel the need to ask why she was here. He assumed this was one of her favorite stores. "I'm trying to get better at flying. Are you here to window shop?"

Camilo turned around on the spot, about to begin verse two of his song (seriously, what were the lyrics???) and take another set of supplies to stack on the shelves, when he noticed that he was, in fact, not alone.

Oh. OH. He coughed slightly, stopping himself from plunging into the song.

"Miss Blaze! It's great to see you again," he smiled and waved at his former student. Setting down the gloves in his arms, he turned to face her properly. Claudine Blaze. A resilient and hardworking student if he ever saw one, and a talented artist of course. He could not remember if she liked Quidditch - after all, virtually everyone was unhappy in flying lessons - but he was nevertheless very happy to see her in his store! Speaking of which, "Oh, you must be wondering why I was, uh - I work here. I'm the new owner of Quality Quidditch Supplies." Yep, he had not become a deranged man who messes up other people's shops in the course of a year, if that was any reassurance to the Slytherin, whom he just realised looked unhappy for some reason.
