Default Street Vendors



Though numerous street peddlers line the streets of Diagon Alley, customers would be wise to be wary of them. Any number of items can be found hawked on the streets daily, many useless and some illegal. One might be able to buy a cheaper wand, running the risk of it exploding during use. Bottoms have been known to fall out of the defective cauldrons bought from one of the carts. Not all is bad, though. Discounted jewelry can be bought, though the gold or gems may not be pure. One some days, a hag comes through with a cart of wind-chimes, some proclaimed to warn of burglars. Often, knick-knacks and small décor can be found in various carts. Be warned, though – sometimes the items being sold have been stolen from others.

Beyond item hawkers, various stalls are set up selling street food. Try a Cauldron Bread (a bread bowl carved out with soup or chowder served inside), stop by and grab some skewers/kebabs to go, hit up the Confetti Popcorn (the fizzy popcorn is supposedly made with real Muggle soda and fizzes in your mouth; dill pickle flavored even crunches like a pickle; berry flavored popcorn actually has dried cranberries, which goes well with the raspberry, blackberry and strawberry flavored popcorn). If you’re looking for a quick snack, the streets have enough.

Normally, the street peddlers was not somewhere Leela would be shopping for a gift for her older brother, particularly not when Christmas had already passed. But considering he seemed to have more time for his new friend than his younger sister had her feeling rather salty towards him. And one of the few things she'd inherited from her mother, was not having any tact with disguising displeasure, particularly from the only person who knew her as well as Gray did. BUT if the male Russell-Liu was intent on doing this whole 'growing up' and abandoning her in the process, well FINE. But he could expect potentially faulty Christmas and birthday presents than in the foreseeable future.

And as for his friend? It would be nothing but Weasley Wizard Wheezes wares. IF they managed to know each other long enough for Lee to have to worry about the disapproval from her brother if she were to show up empty handed for his... whatever she was.

After inspecting some products from one cart, she didn't see anything particularly eye catching, and opted to move on towards the next which... she still wasn't certain would provide any results. She could do this all day long though, and absolutely would, though there was a rather LOUD interruption originating from her stomach as she passed through a breeze carrying the scent of the kebabs.

GRROWL.

Septimus had come to London in search of supplies, but his feet had led him towards the street venders rather then the brick and mortar shops for some reason. Perhaps he would find something of interest along the way, whether on his list or no. He remembered stumbling on a surprise or two when he was more readily in the alley for school things. Though maybe that was just for his younger, more interested self. A cache of painting supplies had caught his eye after a few booths of no luck, at first thinking of his mother and her artistic habit, but then thinking of the woman had randomly run into the memorial garden who had gotten him thinking on a few things.

Perhaps…

However, he was momentarily distracted hearing a nearby sound. “Did the Menagerie lose a creature?” he mused aloud curiously, his dark eyes looking cautiously around in case there was something to pay attention to. At least no one was yelling to get people's attention which was a good sign. Or maybe he had just imagined hearing something when there wasn't anything there to speak of.

Lee hadn't even realized she was hungry until the loud noise erupted from her stomach, immediately causing her cheeks to tinge pink with embarrassment. It was apparently time to stop for a food break before any more noises came from her. Her feet redirected towards the food vendors, but before she could fully commit she was distracted by someone asking if the Menagerie had lost an animal. Leela honestly hadn't known she could blush as deeply as she was now, a cool hand came up to her face to place against the red in hopes of making it go away. She took another step towards the vendors, hoping to make a get away before anyone noticed her but before she could take two she stopped.

What if someone else heard his question and it caused panic? Had she heard it and NOT known it'd been... well, her, she might have been a little concerned to see a snake or something slithering along the alley. Not that those could make a similar noise but... still. With a resigned small sigh, she lowered her hand and willed herself to look calm and collected as she sought out the voice. "No animal. Just... a stomach that needs food. My apologies."

Septimus turned at the sound of music towards him only to see a woman coming his way and responding to his absent comment. Oh Merlin. That was a bright move, Nairne, he inwardly berated himself. “Ah…no, it’s my place to apologize,” he remarked genuinely, waving off her own apology and feeling a touch awkward. Comparing a hungry human to an animal was hardly a polite statement even if he hadn’t been aware of it at the time that it wasn’t something else. Add to it that insulting a woman…his mother would be ashamed.

“Bad stomach for betraying you and being so demanding,” he added, trying to make it more innocently amusing than weird. So very rude of it to make its hungry presence known, especially outside its body. Didn't it realize that there was stuff besides food that needed to be taken care of at times? His own certainly liked to bother him through the years when he was trying so hard to actively study for one thing or another.

His apology got a wave of her hand, as she silently pleaded with her stomach to not make noise again and render her even more embarrassed. Instead, she tried to just muster all of the grace her mother seemed insistent that she had and smiled at him. "It's Diagon Alley. You never know what's lurking, so I certainly don't blame you for posing the question. It's just good it IS just a misbehaving stomach noise." If her cheeks could go back to their normal color she might have even been able to pull it off as being unperturbed.

"i should punish it but I probably don't want to worry any other shoppers. Do you happen to know what's good around here?" Those stalls DID smell delectable, but her time here was generally pretty limited. And had most certainly been restricted to the Leaky Cauldron, who had to go through health inspections and the like. Better to be safe than sorry, right?

“True…” She didn’t need anyone else thinking there was something to be concerned about around loose on the streets. “Plus, you would likely be the one punished in the end.” Headaches, low blood sugar, all around hangry feelings…all possible if you starved your stomach as he knew from past experience on his own.

As for food suggestions…”Well that would depend on if you wanted someplace to sit inside or to take with you as you walk or maybe sit on a bench.” All up for choice though perhaps it would also depend on how much time one might have to serve the hungry stomach. “Outside…the cauldron bowls are nice.” He had been finding himself preferring comfort foods that resembled home-cooked meals since settling back in Britain and soups and stews fit that bill. When it wasn’t the Italian fare of the other half of his family.

Embarrassment was a punishment in itself, was it not? Leela just smiled back at him and his comment, giving a nod of her head in agreement. As for his question... did she want to sit down somewhere or continue to browse? There was still a good deal of shopping to do, so she was hesitant to take the time to go somewhere like the Leaky Cauldron, but she also wasn't overly fond of walking AND eating. Still... maybe grabbing something at one of these stalls and then just.. pausing at a bench would be the best way to go.

"I think I'll go for outside and try one of those Cauldron bowls." Soup was a great comfort food, and who didn't need comfort every once in awhile too? She moved to walk towards the stall before pausing, trying to decide if she wanted to make a further fool of herself. Lee was... more aware every day that she had zero friends, outside of her family and really wasn't it too sad her brother was her only person? AND he was about to be too busy for her. If she'd already showed embarrassment with this guy... what was the harm in potentially further doing so or maybe finding, at the very least, an acquaintance. She decided to go for it. "Would you like to join me?"

She seemed to approve of his suggestion from the street vender side of the discussion and Septimus was prepared to move on to leave her be when she had paused in her departure making him curious in return. Was there something else? He wondered. Did she need help? He would try to assist if he could…he might not be the most sociable, but he wasn’t rude. But what she asked him when she finally spoke again, took the former Ravenclaw completely by surprise.

Him…join her?

Could it really hurt? It was simply strolling the Alley down a little and getting a late lunch, which he reminded himself that he hadn’t eaten himself. His stomach was just a bit more used to not being so vocal. “Why not…” Septimus mused rhetorically. “Though perhaps it would be best if we weren’t complete strangers,” he remarked, before offering a hand. “Septimus Hadley-Nairne.”

It was an odd request, and once she'd spoken it aloud Lee expected a polite decline before the guy strode off. But at least she could tell her brother later that she did attempt to expand her non-existent social circle. Although, perhaps she'd leave the details and how far out of left field her attempt had come from. Not that he'd believe her anyways.

His agreement to join her almost surprised her more than the fact she'd offered to begin with. And Lee... blinked at him for a moment, before the introduction and his words got through to her. Chuckling slightly and breaking herself from whatever distraction she had in her own head space, she accepted the offered hand and gave it a firm shake, a small chuckle accompanying. "A wise thought. Pleasure to meet you, Septimus. I'm Leela Liu." Her full name was far too much of a mouthful, and in most social settings she preferred to accept only her Dad's lineage anyways.

Lee took a few steps towards the stall, finding a place in line as her stomach gave another - thankfully quieter - growl. "What brings you out to the alley today?"

Septimus could tell that his reaction to her offer and response to the positive had taken his companion by surprise. If he admitted it to himself, he was a touch surprised himself. But he kept reminding himself that it was just two people grabbing lunch from a street vender. He was being polite and joining her in a casual endeavor and as they exchanged names and a handshake, no longer random strangers. “Nice to meet you Leela, as well.” See…just a former Ravenclaw getting out of his close-knit shell.

The intern let her take the lead, following her down the alley for a little bit to find the vendor in question. “Mostly just taking a break in amongst things.” He was still getting settled into being back in England permanently and the new job. So some sort of structure was only just returning to his life. Though he supposed he could be handling errands at some point today. “How about you?”

And with names exchanged, she wasn't quite sure where else to go with conversation. This was probably one of the reasons she'd been a loner, of sorts. Friendship usually came after conversation, right? But how in the world was someone supposed to know how to start that? She'd had it easier before - Gray having been her friend because he was her brother and HAD to tolerate her. And then his housemates had done the same out of courtesy for their dorm mate. The only friend she had made herself had been in an art room. Was it... acceptable to just start talking about art randomly in the street as well?

"Do you work around this area?" Probably safer to stay with work or... general questions that weren't TOO too personal. "I've seen a few Help Wanted ads around the alley and I've considered it myself." The junk shop is about the only place she would want to work. And then she'd be sad if she did not get that job. "Just getting some gift shopping done. I have an older brother that I had a few specific things in mind for."

Yeah, Septimus was the type to be all awkward. It could be a challenge when you weren’t making connections through Hogwarts or college afterwards. Hopefully now working there might be something else which was where his companion had brought the conversation. “Gringotts….” he answered to the affirmative of working nearby. “I recently started as a cursebreaking intern there.” It was a start, an attempt to find his niche in the adult world after graduating from university.

As for the signs…

“Probably some interesting places to work,” he mused in thought on the matter. If one was able to handle the interaction with customers. Flourish and Blotts might have been his style with his habit of loosing himself in books. Which likely would have gotten him in trouble by being distracted by said books and not actually working. “Lucky brother…unless your relationship is that of causing amusement at your sibling’s expense.” Not something familiar with himself as an only child, but his parents and their siblings had the stories to tell.

Summer was over and her second year of university was back in full swing which meant that Sadie lacked even more time than usual as a pre-healer studies student specializing in pharmaceuticals. If only her ambitions were as charismatic as she was then maybe she would not feel so exhausted certain days of the week. Like today. Like every other day really but adrenaline and her competitive nature fueled her even when she was funning on fumes and espresso. Today had only been a single shot as opposed to a triple, so things were going pretty good.

Her morning lab completed and nothing to do until her The History of Medicine: Philosophy, Science, and Psychology class (of which she had already read ahead several chapters and already so she could use the actual class time to work on her essay on the history of the evolution of Urtica dioica and its uses, she decided to bounce over to Diagon Alley to grab a quick lunch and possibly run into one of her flatmates. Living with four other fellow was certainly an interesting, and bloody complicated experience to be sure with Autumn's encouragement making it even more so. It was nice to have a moment to herself where she could breathe in something other than testosterone.

Seemed like someone else had the same thought in mind -presumably regarding food. She was definitely in the mood for a falafel kebab. Nudging her way past the attractive fellow already standing there with his chicken skewers with a soft but authoritative 'pardon me', she placed her order and passed over her kickboxer's Nalgene to have her ice tea poured into. Had to be environmentally friendly, after all.

Mm, this is good.. Curtis was glad his taste buds didn't change throughout the day. He would have to get another to go for sure and ask for a little box for them.

Luckily, he wasn't about to bite off another one when he was nudged or there would've been certainly not-so-nice choice words.. or maybe not either way. As he caught sight of who went in front of him, "You're pardoned.." For now.. would've been how he naturally ended the sentence. But something had stopped him from saying so. For some reason he felt something familiar come over him, had he seen her before? From some well known place or maybe she had just stepped out of the sea from her magical attractive aura?

..Oh, wait. He had seen her before, but only in passing when he got a drink at the Leaky Cauldron, "Nice mug," Clearly she was fancy enough to bring her own mug outside of Hog's Head.. if she ever experienced that.

She had not realized just how ravenous she was until her order was in and she was smelling all the spices. Had she even had any breakfast this morning? She suddenly wasn't sure despite knowing that she had prepared at least three day's worth of overnight oats in the communal fridge. No doubt one of the gents had eaten one of the jars as their own - she really needed to invest in her own mini fridge so her meal preparations were not in vain. Leaning her head back a bit to look at the menu, she tacked a side salad on to her order (dressing on the side) and then smiled over at fellow who so graciously had pardoned her. She hadn't actually needed it, for the record, and was just being polite.

Meeting his eyes, however, pushed aside her slightly convoluted feminist agenda and suddenly she was hearing Autumn's voice in her head. It was the worst, incorrigible, and she found herself wishing quite often that they had never breathed that particular subject. She was going to hate herself in 3...2...1

"Oh?" she smiled oh so sweetly and batted her long, natural, lashes at. A hand even lifted up to pat her cheek and flaunt her rich burnt ochre skin. Blemish free too, which was quite the skill considering her underground athletics and just how little sleep she got per night. Her day to day to day routine, including diet a lot of the time, was a dermatologist's nightmare and Sadie had better things to spend her hard earn galleon on. "It's nice to have such a handsome admirer, even if the term is a bit outdated."

0.

Yeah.

Embarrassing herself trying to 'play the game' was her new hobby.

You know what confused Curtis? Kindness or rather unprompted kindness and compliments. Not that he minded them at all, but it did leave him questioning what he did to deserve it... so it can keep happening again, of course. He blinked once before seeing what just happened. It was her mug.

It's nice to have such a handsome admirer.... You know what, she was right. So Curtis believed breaking out his arguably devilish grin. "Well, thank you," He knew he was handsome, something he didn't thank his parents enough for doing a good job on making him. "I was talking about your choice to hold the drink in, buuuut since we're going about looks..." Appearing to look thoughtful, tilting his head left and right, when he already knew in the first milisecond, "I take it back, your face is the nicer one," Can thank him or slank him later on this.

Taking a moment to observe her reaction, "I'm beginning to feel bad for doing that, but not as bad for not knowing your name," What could it be? Mildred? Diana? Rachel? Ariel? The choices were endless. "I'm Curtis. Curtis Fuller," Offering his free hand out for her. He would have to make it up to her somehow. Maybe something to take her voice away in reaction. Who knows.

Sadie was not known to display spontaneous acts of kindness, not unless you were her twin sister or Ezra, but she was arguably one of the more compassionate of the Kareless family. At least when it came to selflessness. Di Di was turning this leaf over more each day now that he was attached to the Owl Post shopkeeper, but that was neither here nor there for now. Bottom line was more she would not exactly constitute what she had said nor her performance as kindness. Yes, she was absolutely the sort to nitpick words and argue lexicon for the sake of it.

It was fun to ruffle feathers, especially when you knew you were right.

She had not counted on him countering with that sort of smile and there was simultaneously an intense rush of exhilaration and regret. Autumn was right though, she never would be any good at this if she didn't just go for it. So...here she was. Safer than indulging in what Delaney was putting out into the universe, which she had thus far done a fair job of resisting. "Oh well, stylish and environmentally friendly. I refuse to be a part of the 50 billion paper cups and 250 billion were unrecycled plastic bottles problem," she explained with a little wiggle of her Nalgene. All this, naturally, was said to cover the silence that had built while he was pretending to consider her...or whatever it was he was doing with the male gaze...only for him to break his own silence with that. She wasn't sure if she was disappointed her tactics had seemed to work or mortified.

"I'm Sadie," she grimaced, she was trying to put on a breezy smile here, while slipping her hand into his. "So...now you know it. Curtis. My name. Consider yourself forgiven."

"Huh, so you really care about the environment," Curtis half-asked. She did pretty much say it, but perhaps he just wanted confirmation. Or perhaps expecting her to spill more on her interests. "I can get with that, anything to save the plants and..." And what? What was stopping him?

"Sadie... that's kind of pretty," Oh, that. Her hands were soft, unlike his that developed some callouses over wrestling a rogue Tentacula as one of Valerie's tests among other gardening. But he at least washed them regularly. A small smile, "You sure? I could get you a nice meal... outside of here," No offense, nameless clerk, but this wasn't first date material.. But wait, did he ask her out on a date? "But if you've already forgiven me, we could cancel that," Well, Bob's your uncle.

Well, if it had been rhetorical, Sadie certainly was not picking up what all he was putting down. Hard to understand the nuances of someone you had just met, especially when you were distracted by the dreaded double H: hunger and hormones. "Everyone should," she stressed, her tone on the edge of serious as she dove right into a little speech as though she were still on the Hogwarts debate team. "Healthy ecosystems clean our water, purify our air, maintain our soil, regulate the climate, recycle nutrients and provide us with food among a cornucopia of other things. When you strip everything back to the bare bones, the truth of the matter is that human health and well-being is intimately linked to the state of the environment and, as an aspiring healing professional, it is likewise intimately linked to my career. So, yes, I would very much hope that you could get with me...that. Get with that."

He probably did not need to hear all that, but he had it anyway and he was quite welcome.

And, well, what could she say...she had a certain reluctant fondness for hard, well worked, and calloused hands. Even if they might come attached to a lackluster compliment - the bar was quite literally on the floor here so she would accept it. Though she had to admit to herself that she was quite shocked that this was going...well? Had she really just been asked out? Was this Curtis fellow honest to goodness reciprocating her flirtation? Again, the bar was literally on the floor and he needed just to tip toe over it to impress her. "On second thought," she replied with a slight pursing of the lips and slight shift of her weight between her feet. "The jury could use a bit more time reviewing all the evidence before making its decision. Rumor is spicy food is one way to sway the jury in your favor."
