Default Espresso Patronum


Located on the South side of Diagon Alley in London, past a number of other shops you notice a quaint building. It is a café in this fairly busy part of section. What makes this different from the other shops? Their logo for one, resembling a wispy stag that moves every now and then in the window, illuminating from a quite distance in the evenings. One can't help but chance a glance as they pass by.

Approaching the café you get a large sense of security as a warm haze falls over you upon entry. There were tables outside the place, where diners could have their meals and chat among themselves as well as indoors. Heading on the inside you are greeted with the sight of many Patronuses floating throughout the walls behind the other stag logos of the café. The flooring a pleasant velvet red, further emphasizing the pleasant warmth one would experience whether for a quick stop or a romantic scenery.

Floating around you see the wispy forms moving around the walls featuring creatures such as phoenixes, zebras, otters, horses and many other magical creatures. Perhaps your own will join the walls if you stay long enough? The tables are compact and decorated with candles that automatically light up keeping the darkness at bay. Along with additional small booths near the back for more privacy. The Menu illuminates right behind the counter as you approach to order. As soon as you sit, you can't help but feel as if you're right at home.

The last time Kalen had been in the coffee shop, he had found his nutzo beloved Grandpappy harassing a lady. Grandpappy Adian had then started calling him "Edward" a person Kalen still hadn't been able to identify. Sure he could ask his mum, but he didn't really want to. Or, perhaps more correctly, he hadn't had the time to do so. Work, school, and then helping out with St. Mungo's post-war intake hadn't left a lot of time for, well anything. Food, drink, and sleep included.

So with a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie - no, they called them biscuits on this side of the pond - he was sitting at a table in the corner (by the window so Anna would be able to see him). He had a book out and was attempting to read his charms homework, but he was having a hard time keeping his eyes open. His nose might have drooped into his hot chocolate without his realizing it as he dozed off a little.

Anna had been trying very hard to go back to life as normal as quickly as she possibly could after all of the war horrendousness. That was why she had asked to meet up with boy her boyfriend and one of her best friends at the coffee shop. It was odd to think she had been going out with Kalen for a good while now and he hadn't yet met any of her friends! That needed to be rectified pronto!

And so it was. Anna made her way to the same place she had met up with Kalen and his 'grandpappy' - she still couldn't get over how adorable that was, ha - not that long ago. Maybe it was a thing for this coffee shop. To be the place where they met each other's important people? What an interesting thought!

It was when she was still thinking about that that she spotted Kalen sitting reading a book like the nerd he was. Her nerd, thank you very much! With a smile on her face, she approached him. "Hey, nerd." She said, smirking and giving him a quick kiss as she took a seat next to him. "Not the book about pirates again, is it?" She chuckled, not bothering to peek at what he was reading.

His head was heavy and slipped from his hand just as Anna called him a nerd. He jerked awake, head snapping up. "I'm awake!" he said perhaps a bit too loudly for the coffee shop. And then he promptly yawned. "Sorry... What about pirates? Don't you know I only read about pirate with you?" Clearly he hadn't fully heard the nerd comment, although if he had, it wouldn't have bothered him at all. Instead he rubbed at an eye, and then his nose because it felt wet.

Tired as he was the kiss made him beam at Anna. "I've missed you." He pushed his cookie her way, indicating she could help herself to it. He finished his hot chocolate and then closed his book. "Want something?" he motioned to the counter. He was likely going to get something a bit...stronger since the chocolate didn't seem to be helping him stay awake.

His awakening startled her because she really didn't think he was asleep. Tired, yes, but she didn't think anyone would ever fall asleep in that position! This was just another proof that Kalen wasn't just anyone, ay? Anna laughed out loud at the poor thing, but it was just so funny! She covered her mouth with one hand - no need to call even more attention to themselves as they probably already had - and patted his thigh with the other as a 'there there'. "Here." She added, getting a serviette and cleaning his chocolatey nose, trying her hardest not to snort. Merlin, that had been TOO funny!

Bless his adorable heart.

And he only read about pirates with her? "I don't know, you could be the kind that likes reading the same thing over and over." Or was that just her brother? But in all honesty she wasn't sure her brother did it either. Maybe she was just making it up in her head. "Wouldn't surprise me." Truth!

At his next comment she grinned and let out a "Awww!" before giving him another kiss. "I missed you too. Have things gotten better at St Mungos yet?" She asked, tossing the dirty serviette on the table and keeping her other hand on his thigh since holding hands while sitting down was a bit strange.

Ohh, biscuit! "Thanks, how'd you know??" She grinned before taking a bite. Omnomnom. "Oh, yes, please! I'll have um... uh..." Anna thought for a while but couldn't decide. She was also feeling a bit decision-lazy. "I dunno, surprise me." Teehee. "Something hot, though, don't want any iced anything." Yeah, yeah, it was summer, but she fancied something hot, that was all she knew.

Of course Chang-Woo Spenley would have been at the location in a heartbeat to see one of his best friends and gleefully but gently grill her boyfriend. If she asked him to go the distance or jump, he’d ask his Captain just how high. Once a Quidditch Gryffindor player, always one. And he was Chaser Chase.

But anyway - the boyfriend that he had heard about seemed nice yet still it was his duty as a true friend to do this task and be hard on him. After all - he had to put his friend’s significant other through the gauntlet like any good friend would. Dressed in a simple white button down shirt paired with jeans with lazy sunglasses thrown on the top of his head haphazardly so they were skewed slightly on a diagonal, he walked down there streets of Diagon Alley. He was in full nostalgia mode as the walk brought back memories of both happier and sad times all rolled into an informative and developmental seven year journey. The singer now hadn’t played Quidditch in months or used his wand in a while as he had integrated himself into the muggle lifestyle... Though it was still nice to come into Diagon Alley once in a while and just reminisce. Unfortunately he had been away and out of the country for the war that had transpired; however, they did have smaller repercussions in South Korea too. He had to duel a few of them and he was VERY rusty.

Chase walked into the coffee shop and saw his dear friend and her boyfriend immediately. His bunny smile lit up his whole face as he walked over to greet them. “Captain. My Captain! Good to see you,” he beamed. “And you must be the boyfriend. Chase Spenley. Chaser Chase. Anna’s third most trusted Chaser.” He threw a wink at his friend before extending his hand to her boyfriend so that they could shake hands.

Bliss Hope Gracae-Ryans beamed as she stepped inside Espresso Patronum. She didn't get to come here often, what with having five children, a wife, a dog and a job, but it was always one of the highlights of her day when she did. This place always, without fail, made her feel like her troubles had just melted away. She was without her kids today, who were at friends' houses or at playgroup, and Blue, who was working, and it was a strange feeling, but she wouldn't be alone for long because she was meeting her good friend, Theodore Kinsley, for a much needed break and catch up. Although they had seen each other a few months prior, so much had happened since then that it felt like it had been much longer.

The blonde THIRTY-EIGHT year old walked up to the counter. Theo would be arriving any minute now but she figured she would buy her drink now instead of waiting. Despite the fact that Bliss was a massive tea lover, she was tired so she needed coffee. She never used to like coffee but... people change. It was tempting to order food, too, but she would wait for Theo to get here for that.

With a friendly smile at the shopkeeper, Bliss ordered a cappuccino and, when it was ready, took a seat off to the right of the counter.

Laaaaate, late, late. He wasn't usually late to things anymore, but his life was a bit of a hot mess at the moment. Just like his hair, that had grown to almost his shoulders. To be fair, it had taken him a little while to find the coffee shop that Bliss wanted to meet him at. He liked a good homemade brew, but all the fancy flavours from the stores confused the heck out of him.

Theodore Kinsley bounded through the door, catching his breath as his eyes scanned the room for his friend. As he caught sight of her, he raised his hand to greet her quickly before heading over.

"There she is!" He grinned. "Sorry, I'm a little late, my timekeeping these days." Theo shook his head. "Want me to grab us a..." He paused, noticing she already had a drink, "Never mind. Sorrrrry, again." Now, let's try and be a little less awkward around our old friends of twenty plus years, okay?

"No Blue today?" Or the bajillion kids those two had? Theo was glad about the no kids, though...

"No Blue today?" Or the bajillion kids those two had? Theo was glad about the no kids, though...
Bliss beamed once again at the sight of Theodore Kinsley bounding through the door and heading towards her. “Here am I!” She laughed and stood up as he approached, opening her arms for a hug. She was as tiny as she’d ever been, standing at a mighty five feet and three and a half inches tall, and Theo was, well, much taller than her, so there was a noticeable difference in height between the pair. “Don’t worry about it, Theo,” she said, brushing off his apology. “I’m just happy you’re here!” Truly she was. Being a mother of five who also had a full-time job, it wasn’t very often that she got a chance to socialise and catch up with friends, so any time she managed to get was special to her.

She chuckled when he trailed off, having spotted her drink. “Don’t be silly,” she laughed lightly when he apologised again. “I would have ordered for you, too, but I wasn’t sure what you would be in the mood for.” She sat back down. “Do you want to order food while we’re here, by the way?” Because she certainly did.

“Mhm, no. Unfortunately not. Blue had to work, Laini’s at a playgroup and the other four are at their friends’ houses.” When her children had gotten old enough for such things, she had NO idea, but it made her emotional to think about.

She was also feeling a bit decision-lazy. "I dunno, surprise me." Teehee. "Something hot, though, don't want any iced anything." Yeah, yeah, it was summer, but she fancied something hot, that was all she knew.

What – was – she – doing? He batted at her hand a little until he realized what was going on and then gave up. In all honesty? It felt nice to have someone take care of him for a change. He’d spent the last few weeks taking care of others and so he finally gave in and let Anna clean him up. ”Thanks,” he said without a hint of embarrassment.

”Why would I read the same things over and over again when there are so many new things to learn and read?” he asked, again without a hint of animosity. Kalen was a hard person to get riled up. It just wasn’t his nature, partially because he often didn’t know if or when he was being insulted. ”Charms…ex-ex-aammm…” he said yawning. ”Is next week.” Only a few more terms of school and he would be done. It was his new mantra. Then came job hunting. He hoped he could find a team looking for a healer because he did not want to go back to St. Mungos. No, he might keep his chicken costume before going back there.

”No, and I am not looking forward to going back tomorrow.” He was a little loath to admit it, but if he couldn’t tell Anna who could he tell? ”Emergency healing is not for me. Well, not emergency healing like that.” Because sports healing was emergency healing just not….emergency healing. Injuries were often common and expected and it was easy to diagnosis what was wrong and figure out treatment. ”You never know what was going to come through the doors next Anna. I spent 3 hours trying to get rid of horns. Yes, horns on someone’s head this morning!”

As for the cookie? Well, Anna was always hungry. Like him. Scratch that. Like he usually was. He didn’t have much of an appetite at the moment. ”Right…something hot –“ He started to get up from the table. ”Like me….” because despite being sleepy and tired and exhausted, Kalen still had a sense of humor and he did enjoy making Anna laugh.

He had gotten to his feet when someone approached and started talking to Anna. Clearly the two knew each other well. A different guy might have been intimidated or jealous of this fact. Kalen? He was too obtuse and drained to catch the intimacy in the other man’s words. Still he sort of looked at the guy with a ‘durrr’ face for a moment because it took him a second to remember they were meeting Anna’s friend here. Also, he had been addressed as ‘the boyfriend,’ something Anna hadn’t really addressed him as much (if at all). ”Right…Chase…” He took the man’s hand and gave it a firm one-two shake before letting it go. ”Kalen Weiland, the…ah…boyfriend?” Yes, his voice rose a little at the end there as he glanced over at Anna to make sure that was alright to say. ”I was getting drinks…can I get you something?” He reached down and shoved his school books over to the side so the guy had room at the table.

It just wasn’t his nature, partially because he often didn’t know if or when he was being insulted. ”Charms…ex-ex-aammm…” he said yawning. ”Is next week.” Only a few more terms of school and he would be done. It was his new mantra. Then came job hunting. He hoped he could find a team looking for a healer because he did not want to go back to St. Mungos. No, he might keep his chicken costume before going back there.

”No, and I am not looking forward to going back tomorrow.” He was a little loath to admit it, but if he couldn’t tell Anna who could he tell? ”Emergency healing is not for me. Well, not emergency healing like that.” Because sports healing was emergency healing just not….emergency healing. Injuries were often common and expected and it was easy to diagnosis what was wrong and figure out treatment. ”You never know what was going to come through the doors next Anna. I spent 3 hours trying to get rid of horns. Yes, horns on someone’s head this morning!”

As for the cookie? Well, Anna was always hungry. Like him. Scratch that. Like he usually was. He didn’t have much of an appetite at the moment. ”Right…something hot –“ He started to get up from the table. ”Like me….” because despite being sleepy and tired and exhausted, Kalen still had a sense of humor and he did enjoy making Anna laugh.


He had gotten to his feet when someone approached and started talking to Anna. Clearly the two knew each other well. A different guy might have been intimidated or jealous of this fact. Kalen? He was too obtuse and drained to catch the intimacy in the other man’s words. Still he sort of looked at the guy with a ‘durrr’ face for a moment because it took him a second to remember they were meeting Anna’s friend here. Also, he had been addressed as ‘the boyfriend,’ something Anna hadn’t really addressed him as much (if at all). ”Right…Chase…” He took the man’s hand and gave it a firm one-two shake before letting it go. ”Kalen Weiland, the…ah…boyfriend?” Yes, his voice rose a little at the end there as he glanced over at Anna to make sure that was alright to say. ”I was getting drinks…can I get you something?” He reached down and shoved his school books over to the side so the guy had room at the table.
Anna couldn't help but chuckle - as it was her usual around Kalen - at his half-sleepy reaction. Kalen was generally slow even when fully awake - which was adorable, of course - but he was extra obtuse when tired and it was, obviously, extra adorable. She wasn't going to tell him that as she felt like she did it too often already, although it was the truth. So she simply chuckled and moved on. "No problem." Haha!

"Hmmm, good point." And they had exams next week!? After all that had ben going on!? Granted, it had been a few months since the big kick off, but still, didn't they take into consideration how it all might've affected the students mentally, if nothing else!? Sweet Merlin, she was glad she hadn't gone to uni! Anna didn't think Quidditch was brutal - though it could be, but she liked that kind of brutality, ehe -, but that uni was being just downright CRUEL. Her opinion, of course. "Do you think you're... up for it?" She asked, eyeing him carefully. He was basically sleepwalking around, was he not? Not a good state to take exams in!

See, he wasn't looking forward to going back to St Mungos, so maybe the whole uni thing was too much as well? Anna was just guessing, as she had never experienced anything like that. She listened as he explained about his day so far. "That sounds stressful." She said, still looking closely at him. Was it all a bit too much for him at the moment? Was he about to lose it? "Don't you get days off?" Did he need her to talk to some people?? Because she would! Only, she could imagine having your girlfriend burst into your boss's office wasn't the best thing to happen to somebody. Still, she'd be up for that sounded kind of fun too, actually, heh.

At his 'hot like him' comment she, again, couldn't help but snort. "Obviously." She joined in the joke, only it was true, y'know. He wasn't too bad to look at, if she said so herself.

But anyway - the boyfriend that he had heard about seemed nice yet still it was his duty as a true friend to do this task and be hard on him. After all - he had to put his friend’s significant other through the gauntlet like any good friend would. Dressed in a simple white button down shirt paired with jeans with lazy sunglasses thrown on the top of his head haphazardly so they were skewed slightly on a diagonal, he walked down there streets of Diagon Alley. He was in full nostalgia mode as the walk brought back memories of both happier and sad times all rolled into an informative and developmental seven year journey. The singer now hadn’t played Quidditch in months or used his wand in a while as he had integrated himself into the muggle lifestyle... Though it was still nice to come into Diagon Alley once in a while and just reminisce. Unfortunately he had been away and out of the country for the war that had transpired; however, they did have smaller repercussions in South Korea too. He had to duel a few of them and he was VERY rusty.

Chase walked into the coffee shop and saw his dear friend and her boyfriend immediately. His bunny smile lit up his whole face as he walked over to greet them. “Captain. My Captain! Good to see you,” he beamed. “And you must be the boyfriend. Chase Spenley. Chaser Chase. Anna’s third most trusted Chaser.” He threw a wink at his friend before extending his hand to her boyfriend so that they could shake hands.
And THEN a wild Chase appeared! Anna beamed and shot up to greet her old friend with a hug. She still found it funny how he kept calling her 'his Captain', as it'd been such a long time since she wasn't Captain anymore. Still, that was very much appreciated especially as her mother made her give it up, pfff. "It's great to see you too! It's been SO long!!" TOO LONG!

It was only when she released Chase from the hug and looked at Kalen while her friend addressed her boyfriend that she noticed the look on the latter's face. See, it was what she was talking about earlier. Obliviously adorable! So she chuckled again, of course. The two guys were being the polite type and introducing themselves without her having to say anything, which was nice. Hopefully this meant they would get along nicely and they could all have a great time together!

Taking her seat again, she gestured for Chase too join her as Kalen was going to get them their drinks. "So tell me what's new with you!!!" She wanted to know EVERYTHING!

Being a mother of five who also had a full-time job, it wasn’t very often that she got a chance to socialise and catch up with friends, so any time she managed to get was special to her.

She chuckled when he trailed off, having spotted her drink. “Don’t be silly,” she laughed lightly when he apologised again. “I would have ordered for you, too, but I wasn’t sure what you would be in the mood for.” She sat back down. “Do you want to order food while we’re here, by the way?” Because she certainly did.

“Mhm, no. Unfortunately not. Blue had to work, Laini’s at a playgroup and the other four are at their friends’ houses.” When her children had gotten old enough for such things, she had NO idea, but it made her emotional to think about.
Theodore offered a one armed hug to Bliss, it wasn't like she needed more than that with their height difference. He pulled her in, pressing his ear onto the top of her head. "Good to see you." He said. Actually, it was really good to see her. Theodore hadn't seen a friend in a while. Pulling apart from the hug, he sat and joined her properly. "Ahh, yeah, sure. Let's get some food." He was a little strapped for cash but this was a special occasion. Theo glanced through the menu. Everything sounded disgusting interesting. He decided to go for a healthy option, since he was starting to put a bit of a belly on. "I think I'll go for the Veggie Fidelius Flatbread... it's the only option with 'veggie' in the title." He laughed shortly. Nah, it was sad really.

"Ah, you're spending your day off without the kids with me then?" Theo grinned. He's so special. "Well, say hello to her for me, won't you?" To Blue, that is. Theodore raised his hand and signalled for the waiter to come over. "Oh, wait, are you ready?" He quickly asked Bliss.

So...

"How's it going, then? Since the last time I saw you." It had been a few months, long enough to forget what his friends were up to. Long enough to forget their job titles. Long enough to forget their kids' ages. SIGH.

Taking her seat again, she gestured for Chase too join her as Kalen was going to get them their drinks. "So tell me what's new with you!!!" She wanted to know EVERYTHING!

He eagerly returned Anna’s hug with the widest of grins. It was so so so good to see her. Seeing her brought him back to his time at Hogwarts with her, Anahera, Lucas, Kam, and Maeve... and even Beau and scary Kowlaski. He chuckled. “It has been too long. You’ve grown taller,” he teased with a boyish grin before stepping back a little to turn to Kalen.

Chase found Kalen’s facial expression and referring to himself as the boyfriend a little comical but he didn’t let that show instead he just offered the guy a friendly smile. He could instantly tell that Kalen was a good guy - a little awkward perhaps but he could be awkward too. He smiled at Kalen and pointed to himself. “Chang-Woo Spenley but I go by Chase these days. Anna’s second in command as a Chaser on the team. Now retired from Hogwarts Quidditch and am a singer-songwriter. A pleasure, Kalen.

Ohhohoho Yess.. Kalen was getting brownie points because he offered CHASE a beverage before he could? 50 points to whichever house Kalen belonged too as Chase didn’t know. He’d have to ask that when he returned. “Uh... you sure? A cappuccino would be lovely. Thanks.

As Kalen cleared an area and then Anna motioned for him to join, Chase couldn’t say no and took a seat just in time to hear Anna’s question. He ran a hand through his hair casually (a habit that he had picked up from babysitting his younger cousins). “Uhhhhhhhhhhh.... There’s a lot.... he began not sure where to begin. “Where to begin.... Not sure if you remember... I’m adopted so Lucas and Beth came back with me to find my birth mother. My birth father was a dick so he’s gonzo... completely out of the picture but I have awesome cousins and an awesome Mum. Still love my adopted parents. They are my real parents, y’know.” It had been a rather weird summer. Oof. Major life updates indeed. “I am single so that’s a change. I was engaged but... I needed to figure some things out with Maeve and I... I think we’re better separate.” Besides, he still was coming to terms with his feelings for his best friend and that was all rather amazing but also super complicated. Sometimes he felt like a teenager again. “But I’m a singer songwriter. I have released two albums. Recently just come back from a trip to South Korea to go find myself cause I kinda fell of the bandwagon so you could say.... I’m well...” Sorta. Kinda. Maybe? He just had to keep telling himself that.

What about you? How did you and your boyfriend meet?” Chase wanted to know all the information.

If Anna wanted to tell him he was adorable and cute, she could tell him until the mooncalves came home. It didn’t bother him, nor did he find it annoying or condescending. To him? It was what it was meant to be: a compliment. But only because it came from Anna herself. Now if Chase told him he was cute and adorable he probably would have looked at the man as if he was loony. As for exams and days off? Well, ”I don’t really have a chose about it. My days off have been filled with studying, essay writing and more studying. Life of the nerd Anna…” he said using her preferred joking term for him. ”I just need to study as much as I can now and then sleep as much as I can two days before the exams and I’ll pull through.” It’s what he did and if he scored anything lower then Acceptable, he was not going to be a happy camper. Anna should probably be warned…but that would mean he would have to warn her and well… that required a forethought and precautionary instinct that Kalen greatly lacked even when he wasn’t exhausted.

Chang-Woo- what? Kalen wasn’t good with names on a good day and today was NOT a good day. Nope. He was exhausted and half asleep and his head was so crammed with information for his upcoming exams that the guy’s name was very unlikely to stick. Chase though? Chase he could probably handle. It was a quidditch term after all and he not only grew up in a quidditch family but he was also dating a chaser. ”Right – one cappuccino and one hot beverage to go along with a hot boyfriend… be back in a jiffy.” Meeting new people was awkward, he decided. Especially when he felt like perhaps he was being judged a little (although why he hadn't figured out yet). He slipped off to place their orders and give them both a little time to get reacquainted.

"Life of the nerd indeed!" Anna chuckled although she was feeling tired just be listening to him tell her about his 'routine'. "I always thought using up mental energy made me more tired than using physical energy. You must be exhausted!" And she wasn't exaggerating! Aaaaand she nearly gave him what she knew would be some very poor advice - she was pretty sure she was the only one who found 'forget about the exams' to be a helpful thing to hear - but she managed to keep that to herself. No need to make him use even MORE brain power to argue with her about how important his studying really was. Poor bloke. That thought made her pat him on the leg a few more times for comfort, because MERLIN, that must be tiring. "And after you're done you can sleep for a whoooole week! I promise not to bother you too much then." She finished with her cheeky grin.

HA, the cheek! Anna scoffed at Chase's 'taller' comment. "Pretty sure you're the one who shrunk." She replied raising her eyebrows as if stating the obvious. Also, she couldn't help but laugh at his 'second in command' comment for no particular reason other than the fact he just made it sound so funny.

Aw, wouldn't this be a day filled with laughter for Anna? It really would. Here came some more with Kalen's funny way of announcing his going to buy the beverages. She smiled and watched him go for a few seconds before turning to Chase to fully listen to what he was saying.

WhAt! That was a LOT of news! Some Anna had heard through the grapevine, but mostly ones she didn't know at all. Her eyebrows shot back up and her jaw dropped a little at his finding-his-birth-mum story. "Are you going to keep in touch now or?" She asked. Aaaaaand then came the Maeve story. Hmmmmmmm, that one she partly knew. Sort of. Not really. She scratched the back of her head as he... vaguely told her some stuff. UuuUUuuUuuuhhhhhh... awkward. "Yeah, so I-- I heard." Not that Maeve and herself were as close as they were when in school - especially not during the previous year or two - but yeah, Anna kinda knew... stuff. "What uh... what happened there?" She caaaarefully asked, moving her hair behind her ear and watching her friend closely. She only knew one side of the story and she didn't want to make judgements based solely on that. Though... did Chase even know about... Maeve and theeee.... y'know... the baby and all.

Deadpan.

Aaawkwaaaaaarddddd.

"TWO albums!?!?" AND he's met his birth mum AND all of the other... stuff - eep. "No wonder you didn't keep in touch, that sounds like a LOT of stuff!" So... was it just her who wasn't crazy busy doing a million things all the time? Lol. Chase's and Kalen's lives seemed SUPER packed compared to Anna's Tornado's training schedule, EVEN THOUGH she did think she kept busy. Not THAT busy, apparently. Which was fine by her, to be honest, heh.

Speaking of Kalen, Anna grinned widely when Chase asked how they met. "It was actually a blind date, ha! Can you imagine!? Me going on a blind date! We went bowling and it was great and we..." She trailed off a little as she nearly said that they hit it off straight away but, although that would be technically true, they also took a good while to make things official, so could she even say that? Eh well, yes, she could! "...we hit it off... pretty much straight away and have been going out since!" There, it was all technically true, even though they took their sweet time to officially become boyfriend and girlfriend, they did keep seeing each other often from then on. There, not too odd to tell that story! "He's so great, Chase, he's just... great!" Anna could list a whole bunch of great things about Kalen, but she decided to not bore Chase as she knew those kinds of conversations were only fun for the person gushing about their partner, so she'd spare him of that. But Kalen really WAS great! The best, dare she say, yep. "Even though he's a Falcon's fan." She added jokingly. "And their mascot." Sorry, she couldn't help it, it was still too funny!

He chuckled at Anna’s comment that he just got smaller. “Oh yeah, totally was six five and shrunk to six one,” he joked, referencing his own height as he grinned. Man. It was so GOOD to see her.

Chase quirked an eyebrow and smirked at Kalen as he commented one hot beverage and one hot boyfriend. He then cast a smug look towards Anna as he watched her boyfriend go get the drinks. “He seems nice... a little quirky but I like him so far. Should I be a little harder on him? And grill him?” he whispered to Anna as he leaned over towards her. He, of course, had to live up to being the investigative best guy friend at this precise moment.

Oh yes, I’m the perfect Momma’s boy now,” he said framing his face cutely with his hands as he winked at Anna. And then.... she asked the dreaded question about him and Maeve. To say it was complicated was definitely the... easiest way to explain it. “Oh. Maeve TOLD you? I didn’t realize you two were close...” He had always been in between Maeve and Kam and felt as if he was being torn in multiple directions throughout school. The moments spent with Anna, Anahera, and Beth were... calming. But yeah Maeve and him... Thinking about her still brought him complicated feelings. Sadness and relief were the two strongest. They had been in “love” for several years and even got engaged and all but Chase... he had realized his love for Maeve had evolved. Their relationship had become one of companionship and comfort. Not one of romantic love in his eyes. It all started to make sense after a kiss with his best friend that he had owned up too. He had needed to come to terms with that love evolving and shifting. It hurt both of them especially when Maeve was potentially pregnant with his kid. She was responsible and got it checked. He wasn’t THE father but if he had been... it surely wouldn’t have been good for either party. He stiffened. “It’s a long story... Let’s just say I was the bad guy and I hurt her. I had feelings for someone else. It wasn’t fair.” Feelings for multiple people. It had been a sucker punch for Maeve.... And they were still friends... it just was... an adjustment.

Yeah! Two! I can give you a signed copy... if you want ” He did have a copy saved for her and one even for Beau too. He still didn’t know why he kept one for Beau after all these years... Their dynamic was complicated....

He beamed as he listened to Anna regale him with the tale of how Kalen and her met and hit it off well. Chase was super happy to see his friend content and so in love. It was nice to see someone so happy... He found happiness infectious. However when Anna mentioned that Kalen was a falcons fan, he pretended to fall out of his seat (cause dramatics) and gasped.

OH MY MERLIN. No. SAY it isn’t SO! A falcon’s fan?” he loudly cried out for all to hear and standing up. Heh. He loved a good audience and good dramatics. “ All things considered... hes a pretty good catch despite being a falcons fan. How do you do it Y’know... dating the mascot?

More importantly did she get free tickets through him?

There was a skill to balancing three (hot) drinks and a plate of cookies while one walked. It was a skill that Kalen did not possess, indeed, he would never ever make it as a waiter and still by some miracle, he made it back to the table with the drinks just as Chase decided to belt out something about Falcons’ Fans. The plate of cookies tilted and he quickly set everything down on the table. If the cookies were going to topple, best it happen on the table rather than the floor right? With a small huff, he sat back down into the chair next to Anna. He hoped he had given the two enough time to chit-chat and catch up and talk about him. Wait? Was it a bit self-indulgent that he thought they might be talking about him? Eh, well, if it was, he had taken extra time to pick out the cookies so they could. ”Well, when you’re father’s a former Falcon’s Beater, it’s hard not to be a fan even if you’re bosh at the sport yourself.” There he’d said it. He sucked at quidditch. Hence why he danced around in a giant chicken suit verses flittering around on a broom. He wasn’t going to tell this Chase guy he was rubbish at flying though might even be a bit scared if it if he was honest. Nope. That could stay between him and Anna for now.

Kalen looked at Chase for a moment at his question about how one goes about dating a mascot. Was the man serious? He laughed, head tilted back a little. ”Funny. He’s funny,” he pointed at Chase as he looked at Anna. ”Usually I get the ‘what’s it like dating a professional quidditch player’ question. I’m sure the answer is – embarrassing. Dating the mascot I mean, not dating a professional quidditch player.” Kalen turned a funny shade of purplely-pink as he buried his nose into his mocha. He took a big sip then made a grossed out face. Ick coffee was the worst. He collected himself as he reached for a cookie. ”Good thing I wear a mask so nobody knows it’s me in the chicken costume.” And no, he wasn’t embarrassed about how he was making his money right now. It was what bought the round of drinks on the table in front of everyone. It was only going to be temporary anyways. Soon he’d be done with school and he could apply as a medi-wizard for the league. That didn’t mean it might embarrass Anna a little. In fact, he wasn’t sure if it did. They’d never really talked about it.

Default Chase & Kalen!
Arts TRANSPONSTER!

Anna let out a loud laugh, not minding that some other customers looked their way. She was catching up with an old friend and no amount of glares would stop her from having a good time!

She snorted at his comment about Kalen being a little quirky. "That's an understatement." She said with a big smile. "In a good way, of course! He's so cute. And nerdy." Very nerdy indeed, but also in a good way! Grill him? Ha! "You could if you wanted to. That could be kind of fun. I'll stop you when it's enough." She chuckled, amused. She was kind of curious to see how Kalen would react, if he could hold his ground or if he would be his usual adorably oblivious self.

Wow, Chase being 'the perfect mamma's boy' idea was kind of fascinating, given his past and all. "I'm glad it all turnout out well for you on that front." Aaaand then the Maeve thing. "Ah, well... to be fair we hadn't spoken in a while but then... y'know..." The girl went and had a baby and all. Anna was bound to find out one way or another. It turned out the Wizarding world wasn't that big after all. Then he went and basically told her what she already knew. He was assuming that he was the bad guy? Huh. "Oh. Well, I... appreciate the honesty." Anna said, nodding her head and looking at her friend to try and read him a bit more. Hmmm. Strange. But hey, if that was what he was willing to share, she'd take it. "Fair enough." Moooving on.

And then Anna was back to snorting. "Alright, I'll take 'em both. Signed, please, but no kiss marks on them, yuck!" Not to mention the though of Chase wearing lipstick to leave such marks on the albums would be a bit too funny.

When Chase did his little scene, standing up and everything, getting other costumers looking at them once again, Anna couldn't help but crack up. Glaare all you want, people, they were having fun!! "He really is, he still comes to my games too, but not in his costume." You know, that'd be weird, given they worked for competing teams. "The only issue will be how to raise the children-" It was only when the words were out of her mouth that Anna realised just WHAT she had said and her eyes went as wide as saucers. "I mean-- I don't mean--" asdkjnfas MERLIN.

It was a good thing Kalen came back when he did, as Anna could pretend she was not turning bright red and nOtHiNg awkward had just come out of her mouth. She just let Kalen talk about his dad and everything else he just said.

Mer.

Lin.

He could see it. Kalen seemed nice and he was happy for his friend. “As long as he makes you happy. That’s important,” he smiled. As Anna encouraged him, Chase wiggled his eyebrows at her. “Dont tempt me! Y’know it’s hard for me to say no to you or to something comical and fun.” Anna just had to give him a smile and he’d run a mile with that joke or bit. Determined he was.

He closed up a little bit, stiffening in body language. “I know...” Chase wished he had a latte in his hand right now so that he could sip it and focus it on that instead of his thoughts. “Yeah... we grew apart you could say.” And that was the truth of the matter. “I wasn’t a bad guy exactly but let’s talk privately... the Wizarding World is small after all and people like to talk.” And he had a reputation to uphold to his fans....

He smirked at Anna when she mentioned that she did want a signed copy just not with the kisses. “Aw come on. That’s brilliant. What lipstick colour would you want? Tantalizing tangerine? Scarlett the harlot red? Bubblegum pink? Feverish aubergine?” he cackled. Dont stop him now! He was on a roll!!! He’d even give her the lipstick after he signed the book with it!

Oh. Children. Oh....

Chase wasn’t thinking about his almost child. No. His thoughts were far from it. BESIDES. He also had the whole Nam cousin clan to take care of. And lord news Noah needed help when he had to wrangle him out of that wedding a few years ago ago. Talk about AWKWARD. He gritted his teeth much like the emoji () aaaand looked back and forth between Kalen and Anna quickly. Was it too early to talk about kids? Could he request to be The Godfather, yes? No? Maybe?

Chase was incredibly impressed by Kalen’s balancing skills and wondered how that related to Quidditch. Good balance was key in the sport. But he decided to remain quiet and just listen, waiting for a reaction which he got for him. He sat back in his chair, watching Kalen proclaim that he was funny. Chase just smiled and watched the guy before a frown appeared on his lips. “Dude... being a mascot is WAY cooler than being a professional player. No offense, my Captain for life. But I think it takes guts to do that.” Despite hiding your face behind a mask. Still it was an art and Chase appreciated it. He did turn to Anna and play gasp! “So your type is a man in uniform!” he joked loudly with the biggest smirk, trying to hype Kalen up.

Thanks for the drink, mate. Next time let’s get a round of butterbeer. You and me. I think we’ll be good mates.

Ermm... why - was - Anna's face that color? He found himself looking between Anna and Chase wondering if he had said something to her that had upset her. Did he need to have a talk with Chase? Dear Merlin, he hoped not. Kalen was not that type of person. The worst he was likely to do was take the cookies he brought away from him. Instead, he took another sip of his gross coffee hoping it would wake him up more.

And then he was giving Chase a weird look. Usually people wanted to know how his dad was, so it was a bit unusual for the man to dismiss the knowledge and latch onto the the mascot thing. Perhaps the guy was just trying to be nice. Or maybe make a good impression with Anna. "Erm... well, it certainly took a dare." Because yes, he had only gone into the auditions because someone had dared him too. He reached over Anna's arm to grab one of the cookies. He sat back and took a bite out of the cookie and almost immediately choked on it. Uniform? There was nothing about his chicken suit that screamed uniform.

Cough... cough... choke...cough...

"Ah... ok dude," he managed to squeak out in a high voice as he patted his chest. His face was now as red as Anna's. He sucked in a deep breath, held it for a moment then let it out. He could certainly use new friends. Right now he only had - well, ah - Anna and Nai and well Anna didn't like Nai (or so Kalen thought after their big fight). A moment later he took a sip of coffee again. "After exams." He tapped his pile of books with a finger. He felt a sliver of guilt for not studying right now.

There was nothing quite like a fresh cup of self brewed coffee when settling in for a long night at work...But sometimes she wanted someone else to make a warm beverage for her. And sometimes not at work.

Peggy checked her watch as she entered the café. She was a few minutes early, but she could go ahead and order their drinks and get a table. Luckily she knew Aurora's order, so she placed the order at the bar and carried the two drinks to a table by the window, positioning herself to both see and be seen, whenever her friend arrived.

Aurora really liked how Carson seemed to anticipate when she needed this or that to drink, but this late afternoon she needed to get away from the office for an hour or two. She wasn't 20 years anymore so long work nights took their tolls even if Aurora didn't want to admit it.

Entering the Café slightly out breath with her her big handbag slung over her shoulder Aurora looked around for a sight of Peggy. She smiled when she spotted her bestie over by one of the window tables. Heading over she excused herself in greeting as she leaned in to give her friend a hug. "Hey, sorry I'm late Peggy. I had to send out the entire pest control squad to a house in Leeds that had been invaded by hundreds of pests."

"Aurora!" Peggy greeted her friend with a smile as she returned the hug. "Oh don't worry about it, that sounds like quite the mess," she said, wincing as she imagined the number of pixies or whatnot that would warrant the entire pest control squad going to one house. "I got your usual, I think I ordered it correctly," she said, pushing the cup a few centimeters closer to the other woman.

She took a sip from her own mug. "How are your kids?" They were...still kids, right? They weren't that old yet.

"Yes, a house full of chizpurfles is quite a mess." Aurora agreed with a sigh. It'd take a few hours and be sweaty work if her last memory of removing chizpurfles was anything to go by. Luckily she was here with Peggy enjoying a nice cup of coffee and not out if in the field.

After a quick glance down into her mug Aurora looked up and smiled brightly. "You ordered it correctly Peggy, down to the touch of milk. Thank you." Pulling her mug closer, she raised it to take a sip. After swallowing, she replied. "My children are doing quite well. All three of them are at Hogwarts now. Emily and Hyacinth got sorted into Ravenclaw and Gryffindor respectively. How are your children? They go to Hogwarts too right?"

In all honesty, Peggy barely knew what a chizpurfle looked like. She kept her home pest-free, and had never taken a creatures class to study one up close. Better Aurora--or her employees--deal with them, than her.

She smiled at her friend's announcement she got the order right. It wasn't a difficult order, but she was glad Aurora appreciated her attention to detail. "I was a Ravenclaw," she mused quietly at the announcement of the twins' houses. "They've both graduated, a few years ago. Matthieu is at university now." And while she wished her daughter and son could just stay at uni forever, that didn't seem to be the plan.
