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.

Despite being out of Hogwarts for some years now, it still felt surreal and absurdly mature to be 'meeting for coffee'. Josh was actually not a coffee drinker and many would be quick to point out that he wasn't a tea drinker either given how he made it (he was TRYING, okay?) but neither were in his hand as he secured a table for himself and Gabrielle- who ought to be arriving shortly. With a hot chocolate in hand for himself and her favorite on the table in front of her seat, Josh waited for his friend while doing his best not to blush as the occasional café patron recognized him and made some sort of passing remark. At least no one was stopping and asking for a picture today.

Whistling to himself, he drummed his fingers on his cup before lifting it to his lips for a sip....and then it was instant spewage and a rather obscene gurgling sort of noise while his tongue hung out to soak up some of that blessed cold English air.

SPOILER!!: Brody

Brody eyed the smile. Good Lord. Was he making Gabriel uncomfortable? That was the last thing that he wanted. Was that the reason why Gabriel hardly spoke of himself? He felt embarrassed by past actions, intentionally or unintentionally done? Gosh, why was this man so difficult to figure out? It was so frustrating sometimes. “The poor fish,’’ Brody remarked sympathetically. Though most of that sympathy was for the fish as opposed to Gabriel. “I’d like to think you learnt your lesson there and then.” And Brody wanted to ask if he had ever gotten any other pet but he didn’t want to make the other man even more uncomfortable.

Try as he might, Brody couldn’t tear his gaze away from Gabriel so it followed him as Gabriel too settled back in his seat. There seemed to be some thinking going on on the YATI’s head to which he was quite content to leave undisturbed. He studied Gabriel’s profile instead, noting the set of his jawline and then that frown. Brody wished he knew what was going on in that head.

He also tried not to stare when he realised that his friend was sharing something personal. This wasn’t something that happened often and Brody was quick to realise that it was the other man’s way of trying to help him. The Coordinator was grateful and a whole lot surprised. His brain stored information about the stuff that made Gabriel happy: reminders of his home and the zoo apparently.

Brody was still staring when those brown eyes met his green ones. He really, really wished Gabriel would stop blushing because well… Gabe just looked perfect. “Little moments,’’ he repeated again, struggling to keep his voice level. “Got it. I think I’ve got a few that are more recent that will definitely work, the more that I think about them.’’ His brain didn’t want to seem to work right now. Blame it on the man sitting next to him. He tried to regain his usual cool composure. Again he dragged his hand through his hair, messing it up further. “You don’t usually get so personal… so uh... thank you for trying to always trying to help me.” He wasn’t sure if he said ‘thank you’ before for the tutoring and all.



"I did," Gabriel replied immediately. Feeling slightly more at ease, he added, "Don't get a fish."

He smiled as Brody thought about his potential patronus memories. It was a blessing, really, to have so many options. If Gabriel's friend was feeling anything other than thoughtful, Gabriel was oblivious to it. Really, Brody was so smart and seemed generally happy, it was surprising to him that he hadn't managed a corporeal patronus. "I'm sure you'll figure it out eventually," he added, trying once more to be supportive. Though still a little nervous.

He chuckled. "Any time," he shrugged. Did he mean for getting personal or trying to help? Both, maybe. "Should we get some coffee, then?"

Brody stared for about a second or two, unsure if Gabriel was joking or not. Deciding that the slightly older man was not, he chuckled. He was quite sure that he’d now be able to take care of a fish. And a dog. Or a cat. But while he attended Hogwarts, Brody hadn’t wanted a pet; he had mainly isolated himself from the majority of people. As for the patronus, even Brody was stumped. And he’d been trying to produce one since his fifth year. “I hope so,” came his reply, his mind on the topic and failing to notice Gabriel was nervous. Besides, it was the last thing he would expect from the other guy, whom he always saw as confident and calm.

Brody almost did a facepalm. Instead he grinned sheepishly at Gabriel. “Sorry, I completely forgot about that. And how much I wanted hot chocolate,” Patronuses plus talking with Gabriel did that. “Want me to come with you?” Either way, Brody didn’t mind. If he was going to remain sitting here, then there was no better place for a quick practice of the Patronus Charm.

Gabriel did have an owl now. Owls were easier to take care of than fish...they breathed normal air, like people, and could fly, so he couldn't really drop his owl. And he didn't really want a dog. His sister had a dog. And her roommate had a cat. They were basically a zoo, that flat of theirs.

It was a good thing Gabriel didn't live with his sister.

He grinned at Brody. "No, I've got it," he said, standing up. "One hot chocolate, coming up." Plus his espresso. He went up to the counter to order their two drinks, which thankfully were ready pretty quickly for him to carry back.

"Here you are," he said, placing the hot chocolate in front of Brody and his espresso in front of his own seat, before sitting back down. "Have you ever had a pet?" he asked. Or maybe Brody's aunt and uncle had.

Okay, Gabriel had this covered.

While the other young man was away, Brody took the opportunity for a quick practice of the Patronus Charm. You ever get that feeling within you that tells you this time around when you try something you’ll be successful? Well, Brody had this feeling. It was faint but it was there, and he hoped that the feeling would grow stronger as the days went on by and he kept his practice going.

Phoenix feather core wand in hand, Brody called up one of his latest memories with Tallie and Lucas. It was one from just last week where they’d had hot chocolate and a hangout around a huge fire. They’d spent the time laughing and talking. It had been fun, it had been warm and comforting. Sadly for him, he produced nothing that a few silvery puffs which was nothing new.

Brody shook his wand out of habit {it was something he did when magic would not cooperate with him} than out of frustration. Which was possibly what Gabriel saw him doing when he returned. “Thanks,’’ Brody said, abandoning his wand on the table for now. Mmm. Hot chocolate. The beverage was probably his first love. “Not really? I mean, I once bought a parrot from the Menagerie in Diagon Alley but for some reason it liked Lucas more than me.” There was a shrug from him. “So I gave up making it like me and left all the responsibilities up to Lucas.” Brody chuckled. “That darn bird calls me ‘Curls’. It was a nickname my friend Annabeth gave me when we were at Hogwarts.” Brody’s mentions about Annabeth were always casual but in truth, they’d had started off with him disliking her, her troubling him constantly until they became friends, a relationship that ended up benefiting them both.

Gabrielle couldn't stop herself, given that she could see the way the other patrons were staring from practically the other end of the street. She didn't realise, however, that her friend was struggling with his HOT hot chocolate until she hugged him from behind and noticed the spillage.

Though, she still wouldn't mention it. Gabrielle was no stranger to spilling things and all other manner of clumsiness, and she hated when people pointed it out to her, so she was going to be kind and ignore Josh's moment of clumsy.

BESIDES, there were more important things like - "A caramel latte with oat milk? You remembered!"

His mind was already racing, trying to come up with anything to appease the situation when she suddenly smiled. Huh? The ex-Hufflepuff looked confused for a second or five before he realized that she had not been mad but had understood that it had been a ...pretty weird... compliment. That meant she still wanted to hang out, right? "Fan club?" he asked as he had not expected to hear that and he had gotten curious now. "Why? Only celebrities have fan clubs as far as I know. I am not a celebrity" Well, it depended on the context, he guessed. He was not an actor or a singer but he was known in the business world thanks to his father dragging him to boring cover photoshoots. But that was probably not what she had meant.

His tiramisu was almost gone and he was tempted to order a new one. But that meant that he had to leave his seat and he had fun talking with Serena so he would wait till later. Debutant level? Present a cousin? "I- no. It's not like that" He said with a shake of his head. "My parents call it 'elegant parties' because when they host it they use the ballroom area in our house to impress the other guests. It's kind of boring, to be honest. I like parties but all those people talk about is the stocks on the market or what new car they bought for their nephew or someone that they've never even met" he rolled his eyes. If there was one thing that Hogwarts had made him it was to become a more humble person. "Anyway, it is just a fancy way to show off" he rolled his eyes. "Anyway there is some dancing but it is not required to do so. But if you do it needs to be...you know... civil"

With the last piece of the tiramisu cake gone, Minjae's dark brown eyes moved to look at the line to see how long it would take to order a second one. Or maybe he shouldn't... He had been working out lately at the gym at his father's company... But he also did not want to become one of those health nuts where they couldn't enjoy the simple things in life anymore. "I have to be honest here, i am craving a second piece" he said with a laugh as he turned back to Serena. "I think the word you were looking for is 'dumb' not 'creative' although i do prefer the latter" he joked.

......Split the chocolate. That was actually not a bad idea. "Yeah sure" using his own fork, he tapped once on the piece of chocolate and watched it break apart. It wasn't even but he didn't want to use his hands. Not that he had dirty hands! He looked down at the uneven pieces and his stomach told him to grab the bigger piece but his head told him to give it to Serena for whatever reason. "Here"
Serena considered herself a little eccentric so his comment was alright in her books. Sure, it was weird but she could get to what he meant... Maybe... No, totally.

She pursed her lips as she picked up her hot beverage and lifted it to her lips. He did have a fan club. She had to tear down a lot of posters; otherwise, more girls would have been calling him for a date. “Did you go on any of the dates that Noah had advertised for you?” she inquired with an arched eyebrow. Serena simply wanted to know who was potential competition. Not that they were EVEN competition or so Kimmie had told her but still.... it was important. Maybe Minjae really liked someone else VERY MUCH. “With that attitude not yet!” she cried with a proud smile. The smile faltered slightly as a thought crossed her mind pertaining to the idea of fame. “Would you want to be a celebrity?” A valid question indeed. She wanted to be a comedian but without the fame? However, if she wasn’t famous, then she wouldn’t make a decent living, yeah? Unfortunately so...

The ball that he described sounded horrible. “Sounds like torture,” she blurted out sans filter before she quickly raised her hand to cover her mouth. “Sorry... It sounds... really boring... I couldn’t talk about stocks or any of that. I wouldn’t know HOW too!” And it wasn’t exactly her cup of tea. She did chuckle when he mentioned the dancing had to be ‘civil’ or ‘appropriate’. That tickled her curiosity. “Define appropriate dancing, Mr. Yoon. Or better yet... inappropriate dancing,” she asked with a wink before she took another spoonful of delicious tiramisu. Merlin... She was now out of tiramisu too.

She liked his honesty because she, too, was craving a second piece. “Y’know... I am too... Would you want to split it or do you want your own?” she asked, giving him an out in case he wanted his own one. She liked him so much... The way he just was himself. That was much more important than how people looked or how they dressed. He was Minjae and she loved him for that. “I don’t think your dumb... Who told you that?” she asked with a tilt of her head. “Cause whoever did is an idiot in my opinion.” She would fight them cause they clearly questioned his honor and reputation. Serena would not stand for it.

Serena smiled and watched him split the chocolate. She mentally gave herself a pat on the back for her generosity and ingenious feeling but then he offered her the largest piece. “Thanks!” she said as she took a bite of the chocolate deliciousness and just let out a sigh. “Is it silly that I want to remember this moment forever? It’s just... so nice..

Brody was....certainly an odd one, with the wand shaking. Maybe a nervous habit? Though Gabriel hadn't noticed him do it before. And he had no idea what could be making Brody nervous. Definitely not him.

"Curls?" Gabriel repeated with a wide smile. "Did the bird come up with that itself, or did it hear your friend call you that?" He tried not to pry into his friends' friendships, as there was no point usually. But he did find himself wondering about this friend Annabeth. There weren't may people that Brody mentioned by name, aside from his aunt and uncle.

And then he found himself wondering if Brody mentioned him by name to his other friends. Which was precisely why he didn't like to pry in the first place. There was no point in wondering. Maybe he'd meet this Annabeth someday and he could tell her he'd heard about her. People liked to hear that, he thought.

"That sounds like a good situation, you know," he said thoughtfully, referring to the bird. Of course the bird. "I have an owl, and about a half dozen plants my ma forced on me." Plants, pets, same thing. Both were needy. "I think the plants would prefer my mother, actually."

Though, she still wouldn't mention it. Gabrielle was no stranger to spilling things and all other manner of clumsiness, and she hated when people pointed it out to her, so she was going to be kind and ignore Josh's moment of clumsy.

BESIDES, there were more important things like - "A caramel latte with oat milk? You remembered!"
The paparazzi always had a field day whenever he was out in public. Ever the walking disaster, it did not take long before he was doing something compromising. At least today it was just a matter of hot chocolate. Surely there wasn't much of a headline to be had there...

The paparazzi were the further thing from his mind when he felt arms around him and, because of the surprise jump from said arms, spilled a bit more of the entirely too hot hot chocolate on his hand. It was hot still...but at least it wasn't scalding anymore.

"H-H-H-Heeeeeeeeeey," he chuckled through a hum as he twisted around a bit and gave her her drink. "Of cous I did. I's a unik orer for an unik gal."

And a bit of a flashy grin. His tongue was still throbbing a bit from the hot chocolate burn...so it was going to take a minute or two before his speech went back to normal ish.

"Curls?" Gabriel repeated with a wide smile. "Did the bird come up with that itself, or did it hear your friend call you that?" He tried not to pry into his friends' friendships, as there was no point usually. But he did find himself wondering about this friend Annabeth. There weren't may people that Brody mentioned by name, aside from his aunt and uncle.

And then he found himself wondering if Brody mentioned him by name to his other friends. Which was precisely why he didn't like to pry in the first place. There was no point in wondering. Maybe he'd meet this Annabeth someday and he could tell her he'd heard about her. People liked to hear that, he thought.

"That sounds like a good situation, you know," he said thoughtfully, referring to the bird. Of course the bird. "I have an owl, and about a half dozen plants my ma forced on me." Plants, pets, same thing. Both were needy. "I think the plants would prefer my mother, actually."


Ha.

Look who was talking. Gabriel was just as odd. But yes, overall Brody may be referred to as odd. He certainly didn’t care for anyone’s opinion about him. Well, except his family. And a certain Portuguese tutor. Gabriel never saw him shake his wand before because Gabriel had never seen him fail at a spell.

Brody pulled off his gloves to wrap his bare hands around the cup. His palms instantly warmed and he found himself thinking that the cup did a better job of warming his hands than gloves did. “Annabeth and I didn’t get along at first. I suppose that’s because I wasn’t open to getting too close with anyone at the time.” The young man was still that way for the most parts. “Anyway. She used to call me Curls to annoy me. And because my hair was curly when I was younger.” See, now the strands had grown to lose their curliness; this had happened in his mid teens.

The Coordinator had indeed mentioned Gabriel to the few friends he kept in contact with. Not one mention about him having a crush on the junior Auror though. He was quite sure that Annabeth figured it out though as she knew him well.

Brody was half certain that Gabriel was referring to the parrot. “It worked out. Doubt I’d have too much time to give it affection and all that jazz.” Still clutching the cup with both hands, Brody raised it to his lips to savour a bit of the liquid. “She just doesn’t want you to be alone. So basically, you live in a forest?’’ the younger man asked so amused that he was actually laughing as he tried to picture Gabriel’s leafy apartment.

Gabrielle couldn't help but frown a little as she made her way around the table to sit opposite Josh. She hadn't, of course, noticed that she'd caused him to spill anything more, nor had she realised that he'd burnt his tongue and now she was worried.

"Josh," she managed, taking a tentative sip from her own drink before lowering her voice. "Are you okay? Has something happened?" Her frown was evident, as were the furtive glances she was making at the other customers in the café. If something had happened to his voice, something that was career affecting, the nosy people would be all over it and that wasn't good.

Unless... Unless it was an artistic choice and then... well, maybe she could break it gently to him that his voice was fine before?

He, on the other hand, was aware that he was talking all kinds of funky and even more aware of the uncomfortable sting to his tongue as well as the unnatural smoothness - so to speak. Could one melt off taste buds? Was that how it worked? Would she know? Maybe once he got himself a little more together he would ask.

Rather than speak, gives her two thumbs up and an enthusiastic nod to answer her first question. And then it was a full on game of charades. Points to the cup and then to his mouth and then rolled his tongue out to fan with both of his hands. You know, perfectly clear explanation that his drink had been hot and scalded his tongue.

Thumbs up?! That was good, right? But Gabrielle ALSO knew that it meant 'up' when you were scuba diving and even though they weren't scuba diving there was a niggle of doubt that the thumbs up meant okay.

Just a niggle, though. And she offered her own, hesitant, thumbs up back. It took a moment or two more for her to realise that Josh was trying to act something out... Like that game, what was it called? Not that the name of the game mattered, really, but something about a mug and his tong-

"OH," realisation dawning on her, Gabrielle offered a small giggle and an apologetic smile. "You burnt your tongue. Gotcha."

Poor Joshy.

you wanna fite? | 💚 nickleback 💚 | Uh, anyway.

aslan evans needed tea. strong, hot, delicious tea. her soul, wearied by a rather long day in the ministry needed fortification, least angelo milano and all his subtle, deep excitement would sweep her away. she needed to be present, she needed to be clear.

she needed to be in line and to stop staring vacantly around the coffee shop like a demiguise in the midst of a prophecy. her converse sneakers barely made a sound as she slipped past chattering teens, overworked mothers, and house-elves on errands to settle at the end of the line. it was short enough, aslan would get her tea and be out before milo was finished with his browsing, perhaps she ought to stay a while yet... give him time to himself to peer about unbothered by her presence. he was an independent child with a ferociously curious mind. her blue and red boy. her full moon.

It would not do to dwell and become sentimental, there would be plenty ofttimes for that later. her calloused fingers traced the lining of her faded black t-shirt, the fabric was worn but well-kept and fit her lithe form like it had been made for her. It had not been, but she'd become quite versed in magicking clothes throughout her lifetime- everything from socks to ties to purses, she could make them all look as fresh and well tailored as any malkin's employee- a trait which helped a lot when you mostly bought secondhand, not that angelo or des ever seemed to mind though they certainly knew the difference when she bought them something never-before-worn, angelo especially.

The line, while aslan was lost in the corners of her clever mind, had moved up.

How was it that his life was able to run at a million miles per hour and he was still left with time to get his own coffee? He'd been with Les Mis for months now and it was still as physically and emotionally taxing - but so was being a father of two. However, if his wife asked him... he would still hands down say that he could handle another five kids around the house. In truth, Dmitri was so much easier than Mozart, but so was the situation he was raising a toddler in. Just shy of a decade ago, he was on his own and having to rely on the generosity of people at school and his friends to look after Moz while he had auditions and school. But now? Now, he was happily married, owned his own house and spent every night performing on a West End stage. The dream was a reality. Finally/

Tucking a receipt back into his back pocket, Rooney rounded into the coffee shop after holding the door open for an older lady leaving. What to order today? Was it a day where he ordered his usual choice? Or was it a day that he ordered his wifes favourite? Or perhaps his eleven year olds? -- Actually, he'd grab something for Moz anyway. He had... perhaps thirty to forty five minutes until the whirlwind that was his mini was ready to go home. Or at least onto their next stop.

Stepping into line, Roo recognised the gap increasing ahead and cleared his throat lightly. "Careful. Gap's big enough for a buggy already."

Poor Joshy.
One thing he could count on was for Gabrielle to not drag things out unnecessarily. Like...sometimes when he was trying to explain something to Eliza she would do that thing where she pretended not to know what he meant just to see how over the top ridiculous he could get in explaining it. Which...was usually a lot. And he really didn't mind being teased like that so much either - the smile, laugh, and other accompanying elements were always the best part of it all.

Thankfully he was a pretty good actor, his West End debut may even been in another year or two depending on how the summer and spring tours went along with his first album finally dropping, and she was brilliant so caught on easily.

"Yee ah," he chuckled, fanning his tongue a bit more before curling it back into his mouth and smiles at her. "Bah iz aah guud!"

And one more pair of flashy thumbs up.

Settling back into his seat, Josh curled his tongue into a sort of cannoli shape and blew a bit of air on and through it.

"So...how ah you?"

With the younger kids at their grandparents' home, Skyler was ready to spend a few hours alone with Evie. It had been awhile since they'd had an opportunity for a date, just the two of them. And though this wouldn't be a fancy or extravagant one, he was still looking forward to it. Sometimes a place as simple but cozy as Espresso Patronum was preferable.

"I'm glad we decided on this place," he said, smiling as they neared the café, giving her hand a light squeeze.

It was definitely an adjustment without having the four little ones glued to their hips, particularly little Colin who was already 8 MONTHS old, but Evie could not deny that she was quite content with spending some time alone with her husband on an intimate date at Espresso Patronum.

Her eyes landing on her husband, immediately mirroring his smile as he said that. "As am I.." Squeezing his hand in return. "I've heard some good things about this place.." Though, it was certainly not as good as the café she had gone to several years ago, because that was when...she ran into him... Merlin, that probably makes her sound like such a silly school girl. Clearing her throat before asking him, "Shall we?" Reaching for the door to the café to pull it open, lightly tugging him inside behind her.

"So have I," he agreed, nodding. "It always appears to be a popular stop for visitors here." Skyler couldn't think of any time he'd been to Diagon Alley where this café had been empty. He did not stop by Diagon Alley very often, of course, but even so, it was a positive sign in its favor that he had noticed it.

He followed his wife inside and joined the queue that had lined up, his eyes turning to look up at the menu. "What would you like?" There was a nice selection of food items on there, and they all sounded quite good. That made the decision a little more difficult.

She listened to her husband as he'd echoed what she'd heard about this café with it's positive reviews from other patrons. Evie hadn't been to this location yet, so she was certainly curious to see it for herself after the agreement between the two of them was that they should come here for their cozy date. And like he'd said, she was glad they chose this place as well.

Keeping his hand in hers as they waited to be served. Her gaze soon following where his had gone to as she looked up at the menu trying to decide what she might like. It was quite a lot of options to choose from, so was certainly taking a moment to think. "How does on choose honestly?" Letting out a soft chuckle before saying, "I think I'm curious to try the White Chocolate Mocha...and maybe the Salted Caramel and Hazelnut Brownie?" Seeming comfortable with that choice before turning her attention back to Skyler, "And you? Anything catching your fancy?"

There were a lot of excellent options on the menu, so Skyler agreed with Evie's assement on how difficult it was to choose. Of course, if she wanted the entire menu, he would've bought every item for her in a heartbeat. But then she did select a drink and dessert that she wanted, and they both sounded really delicious. He was tempted to choose the same as her, but after a bit more thought, he opted for something else instead.

"I'm going to try their tiramisu and a latte, I think." Yes, those sounded good to him. And luckily it was their turn to order next, so he moved forward to give the café worker their orders.

He was tempted to choose the same as her, but after a bit more thought, he opted for something else instead.

"I'm going to try their tiramisu and a latte, I think." Yes, those sounded good to him. And luckily it was their turn to order next, so he moved forward to give the café worker their orders.
It probably didn't help that Evie did often fall prey to making decisions due her knack for overthinking, but was very relieved that that was not what she dealing with in the present moment. Definitely felt proud of herself for deciding on what she'd wanted pretty quickly. And if she knew that Skyler would have been willing to buy her the entire menu, she surely would have been overwhelmed by the amount of that much food, but still, that would have been very sweet of her husband to do for her. Merlin, was she lucky.

Looking at him as he spoke with a smile, "You know, I'd thought about getting the tiramisu.." Nodding before suggesting playfully with a smile, "I'll happily share my brownie with you, if you'll let me have a bite of your tiramisu.." Letting out an amused chuckle as she then managed to sneak a kiss on her husband's cheek before it was their turn, remaining close by his side while Skyler ordered for them. Taking a casual scan around the café to see if she might be able to locate a table for them.

Which...was usually a lot. And he really didn't mind being teased like that so much either - the smile, laugh, and other accompanying elements were always the best part of it all.

Thankfully he was a pretty good actor, his West End debut may even been in another year or two depending on how the summer and spring tours went along with his first album finally dropping, and she was brilliant so caught on easily.

"Yee ah," he chuckled, fanning his tongue a bit more before curling it back into his mouth and smiles at her. "Bah iz aah guud!"

And one more pair of flashy thumbs up.

Settling back into his seat, Josh curled his tongue into a sort of cannoli shape and blew a bit of air on and through it.

"So...how ah you?"
It's good. At least, that's what Gabrielle assumed Josh had said, and she was going with it. Nodding, she sipped her own coffee carefully, glad that the temperature wasn't what Josh's must have been a couple of minutes ago.

As for how she was... Gabrielle smiled a little. "I'm good, yeah. Work is... work, I guess. But Leighton and I went away for the weekend. He saved up. It was really special." And something she wanted more of, which was why she was looking for a second job. But Josh didn't need to know that. Working in an outdoor gear shop was fine. It paid the bills, and so what if she and Leighton had to be super careful with money? They made it work.

The idea that she could get a completely different job doing something she actually enjoyed was yet to dawn on her.

Yes. It was all good! In fact his tongue was just mostly tingly at the moment and not in an ouch sort of tingle either. His tongue sure felt a lot more smooth in in places that it really should not be. Those little bumpy things grew back though, right? He sure they did seeing as this was absolutely not the first time he had done this to himself and his tongue had been perfectly bumpy until this incident.

He did not return to his own drink just yet though, but Gabrielle was one of the most pleasant of distractions and he adored catching up with her. "That's great." He was really REALLY glad that these two had found each other in the mess that had been Hogwarts dynamics. "In case it wasn't obvious, I'm a huge fan of you two," he added with a smile. "I'm thinking of taking Eliza somewhere too...once the album drops. Well, the third single first which...I feel like I'm constantly fighting with my manager about...and then the album...won't be touring again until maybe next summer, maybe." That is if any bands or solo artists asked him to open for them again. He wanted to go on a solo tour and everything was pointing to him being able to do so, but he couldn't help but feel like he hadn't quite paid his dues yet in the industry.

Skyler wouldn't have been surprised if it had taken Evie longer to make her choices. Some might consider it indecisiveness, but in his opinion it was thoughtfulness. It was one of the things that he loved about her, the way she put so much thought and care into everything she did.

But this time her decision was made fairly quickly. It would have been easy to step out of the queue if she needed more time and didn't want to hold up the rest of the line, but it seemed there was no need for that now.

"I suppose a brownie is a fair exchange for some tiramisu," he replied with an equally playful smile. Though he, of course, would have been willing to share regardless, he was curious to see how their brownie tasted too. And of course he smiled at the cheek kiss.

And then, with the orders given, he moved aside to let the person behind them put in their order and to wait for theirs. Shouldn't be long until it was ready.

"See anywhere you'd like to sit?" he asked. There were a few tables available both inside and outside, so she could have her pick.
