Default The Courtyard



The Leaky Cauldron sits auspiciously as part of the Muggle World, the portal to Diagon Alley. Stepping out the back door of the Leaky Cauldron, it leads to the open patio that is deceivingly large. Once inside the Courtyard the stone path circles around the green area, which is a popular place for young children to relax upon during summer holidays and is also a popular place for, people to lie out and have lunch.

On the green, a tall stone fountain sits and waits for a lucky sickle or two to find its way to the bottom of the fountain. However, the incredible thing about the fountain is the stone is rests upon. The stone floor underneath and surrounding the fountain is charmed to light up with each step a person makes on the stone floor. The color traces the outside of the traveler’s foot and each new step is a fresh new color.

Out on the green surrounding the fountain is the home to a garden of flowers that are freshly planted. Each little patch of flowers is also charmed by the former owner, Harley, to smell of a different kind of treat at the Leaky Cauldron, i.e.. Butterbeer Flowers.

Off to the side of the Courtyard, a winding stone pathway leads to a quaint little pond filled with a hundred carp fish that Ryoma, the old owner, had specially imported from Japan. This little pond is tucked in the back of the Courtyard and serves as a little treat to all who happen upon it. Next to the pond is a simple wooden box with a money hole in the top. Dispense ten sickles and the box produces fish food to feed the carp.

Lucy asks that everyone, including little witches and wizards, pick up after himself or herself.

She was very excited to see him. ”Hey.” Her smile growing wider. She went in for a big hug she missed those the most. Besides kisses she really missed those.

”How’s everything?” Not like she didn’t ask him that like yesterday. She almost forgot to tell him about the free butterbeer. She was surprised that he didn’t notice it yet. ”Do you want one?” She reach in the barrel and grabbed one for him.
Slate wrapped his arms around her, squeezing a bit. He then kissed the side of her head.

"Things are good. Just getting ready for the usual trip to Brazil." he said with a half smile. "Oh. Yeah. That would be great, thanks." he said with a grin.

"How's your family? Sundae?"

Juni just grinned she was so happy to see him. That was one thing that she missed about not being at school. Not getting to see him everyday. It was okay though, they got to see each other a lot over the summer no matter what. But she loved summer and she liked being at home and not having a textbook stuffed in her face all the time. Although that was some of what she did during the summer… sometimes.

She smiled when he said that things were good, that happiness soon faded when he mentioned Brazil. She gave him a don’t say the b word look. ”I wish you didn’t have to go." Aware that it didn’t matter not really. She frowned and give him another pathetic look. Why did he have to go? And why couldn’t she go visit him while he was there. ”Good. Everyone is doing good.”

Slate nodded. "I know. I won't be gone too long though." he said reassuringly. "And it's not like we won't be able to talk while I'm there."

He knew it would be different than when they were in school and it wouldn't be in person, but they'd still talk.

"You're always welcome to come visit too."

Not that her dad would ever allow that.

He nodded again as she talked about her family. "Still in the newly wed phase?" he asked.

SPOILER!!: So very many people... Quinn, Beth, et. al

"Mama's ordering us lunch, so she'll be back in a moment. She's a veela, FYI." There, now Quinn could be prepared, just in case. It was always good to be prepared.

"What's Madame Primpernelle's?"

Dizzy turned back toward her twin and shrugged. "Not idea, but apparently I can make you a walking glitter bomb if we go there!"

"It's a beauty potion store..." Oh, that was even better!

"Hey, where's Cord?" asked Dizzy, taking her seat again, and pouring a bit more butterbeer in the bottle cap for Solstice. "Afraid of Mom? She wasn't really serious about setting Cord's hair on fire last summer, you know? She's just not a fan of excessive vanity." And let's be honest, Cordelia could be excessively vain sometimes.

"Wait? Your Mum is that veela?" Quinn knew, of course, the Veela she'd met in France while on vacation with the Greyvson's last summer was related to Beth somehow, but hadn't quite put it all together yet. And as if on cue, there she was. Quinn swallowed silently.

"Lunch will be out shortly," said Mama, sitting back down in her seat. She smiled warmly at Beth and Quinn both, and then turned to Beth. "Good to see you again, Anabeth. Both of you, really. Will your mom and Cordelia be coming too?"

The tell-tale arch of her eyebrow and all of the looks she was being given, ”yeah…my dad’s side, but I mean they’re related to your wand…their mum – my great-grandmother was the one that supplied the hairs” she smiled to herself. ”I mean, really they’re more like cousins than anything” maybe all of that backstory would help Quinn get it? Still, still it didn’t matter.

Beth’s grin returned at Quinn’s comment about the name. ”it’s a nickname” she informed with a grin before glancing at both Runa and Dizzy. ”Quinn this is Alfdis but we all call her Dizzy, and this, is Runa…guys, this is Quinn” she smiled over to the, of course she’d told them about Quinn before the surgery those years before.

”You guys really should! Madame P’s is great,…I’m DYING to try their confidence potion on people…or make my own” she grinned, ”I’ve got this friend that I kind of want to help be more y’know decisive” she wasn’t going to inform them here and now that Quinn was convinced she liked the fellow…he was a friend okay? Gosh. Beth looked over to Quinn almost sheepishly when she commented about the Veela, Freyja. ”yes she is,” and she was there – it was hearing her full name that made Beth stand up straighter almost instinctually.

”Its good to see you too Freyja, they should be on their way shortly…Cordelia and mum were buying some supplies since she also transferred to Hogwarts” Beth gave Quinn a slight look. She knew of course about the issues she sometimes had with her sister – but that was more because their personalities were so glaringly different. It was then, almost like they were being called upon that they had arrived. Dizzy’s comment of course made Beth grin.

Cordelia would have been so sad if she lost her hair, and really…quite frankly she likely deserved it. ”I’m sure she’ll be here soon” Cord was probably trying to scope out the British boys and making lists of features that were do not bother traits…really, she’d done it before.


Cordelia wasn’t scared or anything – it wasn’t like Mama Freyja as she had come to think of her over the years was really going to do it. She wasn’t going to be bald because of her – smoothing her hand over her hair she made a last check of her tea dress and decided it was time. Don’t be a showy like Beth, she thought to herself and planned on acting all prim and proper like a Beauxbaton – formerly Beauxgirl should act.

She’d like Freyja and the aunties see just how crazy her dear twin was. Seriously, she loved her and everything but you kind of had to love your fraternal-twins right? Even if sometimes, just sometimes they made you want to throw fireballs at them.

Of course, she was glad that Bethelbee had let her play with her hair today…really, she wanted to do that more often. ”Giiiirls, heeey” Cordelia squealed her accent heavy in its nearly forced Frenchness. Her hand was clasped tightly to her little cousin’s kid, because of course Imogen had brought Puck along with her. Sure, she loved Puck she was great but…ugh, Puck adopting Quinn had made it so that the bookish weirdo was around even more often. Maybe, maybe just maybe she was a little ticked that Quinn had gotten her Grandmother’s Veela hair for her wand.

She didn’t like deserve it at all – she wasn’t family. She heard it, Dizzy’s comment and gave the girl, her great-aunt, a somewhat chilling smile. ”Of course I’m not scared – hello its good to see you arričre grand-mčre* Freyja.” there, her fluid French was going to set her apart from Anabeth and her less than perfect language skills.


Imogen smiled over to Puck as she walked into the courtyard. In a whisper she added, ”are you sure you want Cordelia to be walking Ellie? She’s…well, she’s a bit distant with children like you were as a tot” Imogen was concerned that Cordelia was simply putting on an act for Freyja. Merlin, it had been quite a while since she had seen the lady and that made her a little nervous. More so because she knew, knew deep in her bones that Freyja was never truly a fan of Herbert…still it wasn’t as if Imogen was really a fan of him either.

Hardly a tear was shed when the father of her children passed. ”Freyja, its wonderful seeing you – the little one is Ellie…my niece’s daughter and Quinn’s new sister.” she smiled softly over to the woman. Walking over Imogen grabbed a drink for Puck and herself before joining Frejya at the table, ”how have you been?” she asked smiling, ”Freyja, you and the girls should come and join me at the museum one of these days – they’ve got a Nordic exhibit coming up and I’d love for you to join.” she smiled softly, because truly she did love Freyja.

It was more because she knew that Freyja was strong, and strong women would always have Imogen’s support. Truly, Imogen would willingly send Cordelia over to Freyja if she ever needed to get a stern talking to.



The clatter wasn’t on purpose – Ellie had grabbed hold of a patrons spoon and flung it in her little baby hands. Puck, well, she hadn’t met Freyja before but she had heard many stories of her from Imogen throughout her life. Watching Ellie walking in with Cordelia didn’t seem like a problem at the moment until Imogen’s whispered warning. ”I’m sure she’ll be fine, right?” she would be fine.

If anything happened to her Cordelia would rue the day she offered to walk with Ellie. ”Hello M’am, I’ve heard many stories of you in the past.” she smiled kindly, before taking Imogen’s offered bottle and sitting down. ”Hello, Beth you guys look like you missed out on a parade earlier…was this from my Ellie’s doing?” she asked and grinned, they didn’t seem to look like they minded so far.

Quinn of course, she got a kind smile. ”Hello dear, I’ll make an antidote to that potion when we get back home” she smiled softly. ”just enjoy the fact you could probably blind a muggle plane from the sky today” she grinned over to her daughters and took a sip of her drink.

Nervous? Who was nervous?

Er, wait...That's not a thing in London, is it?

"Sorry. Habit. At least I didn't do it the french way, or I'd still be kissing your cheeks...Oh, this is Solstice!" Dizzy said, giving the black kitten a generous helping of behind the ear scratches as she sat down. "He's my familiar now."

"Confidence potion? I thought it was a beauty shop?" Although, now that Dizzy asked, she could see how the two could be related.

"Beth just wants to give her crush the confidence to ask her out!" And no soon had Quinn said those words she, and her chair were suddenly well out of arms reach of Beth in a rather extraordinary streak of glitter. Dizzy would have pressed for more details, a lot more, but Mom was back, greeting Beth with the same three kisses. Amusing, given the fact her mother often complained about the Dutch habit of greeting with three kisses, and Dizzy tried really hard not to laugh.

She failed, earning a sideways glance.

"And how's my honorary Great-granddaughter, Quinnlin?" Was Quinn blushing a little?

"Em...I'm good, thanks. I'm transferring to a school in Norway in the fall, and just focused on that, and learning Norwegian, and..."

"If you'd like someone to practice your Norwegian on, I'd be happy to help." Yep, she was clearly blushing now.

Nothing was said about Cordelia joining, but the look on Freyja's face suggested she'd have been quite happy to hear that Cordelia would not be joining Imogen and them. Honestly, though. Cord had improved a lot over their year at Beauxbatons. She wasn't really snobbish at all, anymore and Dizzy had tried to tell her mom that, but Freyja just didn't want to believe it.

Ah, well. She'd see first hand soon enough.

Or not... It was as if thinking about Cordelia had summoned her, and jinxed everything. What was she even doing. The holier than thou attitude? The accent? Cordelia was quite lucky Arienne wasn't here today. Dizzy's older sister, who was French, would have very much found a way to go harpy and fireball Cord.

Mama shot Dizzy a quick look that was undeniably I told you so."Cordelia. Always a...pleasure." Cold, but cordial. Imogen on the other hand got a much warmer greeting from Mom. A hug, and the three cheek kisses, which were apparently a habit for her Mother now.

While the adults chatted a bit, Dizzy leaned over and asked. "Cord...? You're not French...what are you doing?" The little girl in Cordelia's arm wiggled herself free and toddled over to Quinn, climbing happily up on the girl's lap. Cordelia just watched with a look that to Dizzy seemed downright murderous. She sighed. Way too much drama on this side of the family.


"Imogen!" Freyja greeted her granddaughter warmly, falling once more into the learned habit of kissing her cheeks thrice. She was really going to have to break herself of that habit fast.

Freyja gave little Ellie a small wave and smile then nodded up at Quinn in all her sparkly slender. "Did you do that?" The little girl nodded, almost proudly. "Good girl."

"I've been good. Busy packing for the move, and all. You know how it is. But yes, the museum sounds lovely. We'll love to come. How have you been?"

Freyja turned to Puck and instantly liked the girl. She radiated the things Freyja respected in people: A sense of being genuine, and strong, and compassionate when need. "Freyja, please. All of those stories are probably truly, sadly. She continued to quickly study Puck for a moment longer. "I can already see Quinnlin is lucky to have you caring for her now.


Quinn glanced up from bouncing Ellie on her knee at the sound of Puck's voice, and smiled genuinely. "No, Mum..." She liked saying that. "That was my doing. Had to share the wealth of glitter with Beth." She glanced back down at Ellie, taking happiness from the little girls wide smile. "I'm getting used to it, and it makes Ellie happy. I can hold on until we get home."

Dizzy cleared her throat. "Where's my greet, Imogen?"


A walking glitter bomb? Had she really heard that right? Perhaps it was a trifle cliche but... Glitter. Without leaving a huge mess everywhere... "Yes please!" Her mind swam with visions of glitter-bombed cygnets under a winter moon or of Dewdrop shimmering as though she were perfectly named. Surely the effect could be tweaked for such things? The uses in classical performances were virtually endless and...

"Confidence potion?" Runa's question is immediately answered by the glittering Quinn. A moment of studying Anabeth passed, Runa's expression thoughtful. "Why don't you just ask him?" That was, after all, a reasonable way to go about it as far as Runa was concerned. Then again, it also hadn't really been an area that personally applied to her just yet so maybe, she conceded internally, she didn't quite understand the full social dynamic behind this situation.

Further pondering was interrupted by a toddler ascending to the walking glitter-bomb's lap. As the conversation continued, Runa edged closer to Quinn and took a seat next to the pair, making silly faces and generally competing, good-naturedly, with Quinn for the child's attention. This was a good place to be. Ellie gave Runa an excuse to fade into the background a little and avoid the mildly overwhelming number of family filtering in.

"You must be a very good person if little ones like you," Runa mused to Quinn, "they seem to know somehow."

True. At least he wasn’t going to be gone for the rest of the summer. And he would be back before school started back. Also it wasn’t like he was leaving later today or anything. ”Yeah. I know. You’ll call me everyday right?” She knew that he would but she still wanted to ask.

It was weird how much more she missed him over the summer. She would definitely have to find ways to keep herself busy while he was gone. ”I’d love that.” Though with her dad being as strict as he was, that would never happen.

Maybe next summer when she was of age, maybe then,

She laughed, the way he asked the question. It was hard to believe that her dad and Sundae had almost been married for a year now. ”Yeah. Something like that.” She was still really happy for both of them no matter what. ”How’s summer been so far? Your family good?” She was always asking about his family as much as he asked about hers.

Slate nodded. [b]"Of course. Probably more than once." So what if he was a little clingy? He enjoyed talking to her. Plus, he got bored a lot while he was there. It was nice to talk to someone.

"You know, it's not like we'd be alone. My mum and step dad will be there." Not that it would really matter with her dad. It would have been fun to show her around though.

It would just have to wait until after they were of age.

He nodded. "Sounds right." He loved Sundae in Juni's life. She was way better than her mum was. He nodded at the question. "Yeah. Summer has been great. Just a lot of relaxing." Which was great. "And the family is good. I saw Sonia and Dexter and Fabio."

Well that kind of made her feel better. A lot better actually. Of course they would talk when he was gone, they had before. ”Good. And I know but that doesn’t matter though.” Nope that didn’t matter at all. She sighed again and slipped her hand into his.

Not to change the subject at all. She waved her other hand with the bag of food in it. ”We should probably eat this before it spoils.” It was hard to believe that between the two of them that they hadn’t got to the food yet. ”Let’s grab a table before they are all gone.” Heading off in the direction of the tables.

Juni grinned. ”Yeah, they are just two crazy kids.” And for their age they were one hundred percent ridiculous in her opinion, she halfway snorted just thinking about it. ”That’s great. Tell everyone I said Hi. and Fabio!” man did she love that dog, although she had only met him once. But still it was dog, who didn’t like dogs. Also she missed Sonia a lot too.

Beth just smirked slightly at the cheek kissing greeting Dizzy had given her. ”oh, Dizz, I think our friend Dan – for the last time Quinnlin I do not have a crush…well, its not a crush. I just like spending time with him and he’s nice to me.” he’d given her Pancake and well, made Pancakes for her…food after all was the way to this Greyvson’s heart or so it seemed.

Food, books, complimenting her sassiness…all the things.

”ignore Quinn, she knows nothing…she’s Jon Snow in this instance.” And her words stopped in her throat the minute she saw Freyja rejoin them. It wasn’t that she didn’t want to speak about Daniel now – but she wasn’t…well, she wasn’t sure dosing a friend with an extra zip of confidence was exactly veela code…then again, she wasn’t one.

Leaning closer to Dizzy Beth let out a quiet whispered comment. ”Did…that seem icy to you?” it wasn’t a secret really, it had always seemed like Cordelia was a treated with a stiff bitter reaction compared to well, Immy…not that Beth minded. Cord had always treated Quinn with disdain – and no one, no one treated her friends with disdain without hearing about it from her.

”Dizzy – please you know our family has deep French roots on both the Greyvson and Chase side…besides, French sounds just…poetic” it was clear to Beth that she didn’t even know what she was saying was coming off as…well, rude and callous. Taking out a book from her bag Beth began to doodle – well, honestly she was writing a note to both Quinn, Dizzy, and Runa. I think she woke up on the wrong side of the bed or took too much holier-than-though potion…if it exists I’m sure it exists and slipping it over so the girls could see it.

Yes, that might have been rude but the look Cordelia kept sending Quinn was worse.

Freyja got a smile of course, an almost continuous smile. Did it look creepy – maybe, but that was only because of the perfectly plastic way Cordelia had managed to make it look. Truly, the girl was robotic and she didn’t even know what that meant. ”Isn’t Ellie the cutest?” she didn’t get her name though, why not something…more fitting?

Wait was Ellie leaving her? Brat.

So rude.

Whatever, she’d find someone else’s kid to walk with later. Kids just loved her.


Even though she didn’t know, of course, Puck had instantly taken a liking to Freyja as well. Her daughters even looked poised to take on the world and that was something Puck so loved in other women. Strength, compassion, and a go-get-‘um attitude. ”Thank you Freyja, honestly my favorite was when I heard about our dear Imogen’s birth…my uncle called my brother and I almost instantly to let us know – and when I arrived Imogen here was cackling…” she sighed, ”she told me about the window – I never respected a dog more in my life.” it was the truth because who in their right mind would have respected Herbert Chase?

”oh dear, you’ll make me sound mad Puck” Imogen laughed shaking her head at her niece’s words. ”and Dizzy, dear I’d never forget about you…you’re the best aunt-in-law I have ever had – even if I did have the lovely opportunity to help change both of your diapers when the time came.” it was after all what big families did – they helped and sometimes disaster struck at the most inopportune moment.

Like the moment after portkey traveling for the first time as little wee babes. ”would you girls like me to whip up a batch of garlic fries to send with you on the train to school? I can even say put them a charmed packaging to keep them nice and crisp and warm?” because nothing was worse than a soggy chip.


Beth shot Quinn a look. ”she’s just putting words in my mouth I mean she even went on for weeks that we were snogging and we weren’t…” she sighed and shook her head ”I gave the guy one cheek-kiss as a thanks for getting me a Pygmypuff as a birthday gift and I never live it down…and it was probably the hugging earlier in the term” it was an awkward mess really. ”and…and its more to make him confident enough to talk and not stammer over words…its cute, the stammering but I like talking to him” she was babbling and now Freyja would know.

Merlin.

”besides, I need to figure out ways around the not-having-powers thing? I can use other forms of magic to see how strong minded someone is…I mean, that’s what I remember most of what Gran’ said about how she picked mates – not that he’s a…and not that I’m – y’know…” she was almost babbling, ”I just want strong-minded friends.” there.

Veelaing 101 for the non-veela.

Dizzy grinned back at her sister. "Great! We'll go get the glitter potions after lunch!" Yep, that was the twins. Dizzy telling Runa exactly what prank she plans to pull on her, and Runa being very excited for it.

Well, this is very enlightening. All of it. Especially Beth's reaction. Dizzy locked eyes with Quinn, a silent understanding passing between them. And Diz knew right then, Quinn knew everything in this instance. Uh-huh. "Runa's right, Bethie. Just ask him. Don't be so old fashioned!" Speaking of Runa, Dizzy looked over to her sister and mouthed, "Who's Jon Snow?"

Mama greeting Cordelia didn't go unnoticed either. Dizzy just shrugged at her grandniece. "Mama doesn't like fakeness, kleine nichtje,* you know that." And honestly, neither did Dizzy.

Cordelia knew this too. Dizzy had laid it all out for her at Beauxbatons, and it had worked. Cordelia had started to drop all the acts and just be herself and Dizzy liked that Cordelia. The real Cordelia. The honest Cordelia. Why was she throwing all this away now with self-entitlement and horribly phony accent. Which, by the way, kleine nichtje,* was quite insulting to those who legitimately had accents here, even if it wasn't their accents you were attempting.

Movement drew Dizzy's eyes down, to the table, where a book sat open in front of her. She snickered loudly before she could stop herself and tried covering it up by answering Cordelia instead. "Yes, but you're British, not French. And you're not even speaking French, just is a really bad French accent. Honestly, Cordy. What happened to your plan of being the real you from then on?" That plan was forgotten clearly.

And now she was being creepily over friendly to Mama. It was like watching someone try to befriend a dragon by trying to juggle the dragon's eggs. Luckily, their food had arrived finally, providing a wonderful distraction from it all. Er.....

What was this? Dizzy had been expecting actual fish. Well, she knew it was breaded fish, and thus actual fish, but she'd expected herring or something, like back at home. Not... Grumbling to herself, Dizzy picked up a piece and took a bit. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either, and painted a slightly bleak picture of her future for the next few years. Unfortunately, peanut butter.

Imogen drew Dizzy's attention away from the only okay fish. "Why didn't you just use self-cleaning diapers?" Why would anyone change a baby's diaper when they didn't need to? And no, she wasn't at all embarrassed the baby in question was her, either. Grown ups! Oh, but.... "YES! PLEASE!" Though, she was Dutch, so that question wasn't even one that really needed to be asked. Ever. Fries were practically the Dutch national food. Along with raw herring, and cheese.


"Yes, it really was a tragedy what happened to my grandson, wasn't it?" Nothing in the tone of her voice suggested it was a tragedy, or seemed to hold any emotion at all. There had been no real love between Freyja and Herbert Chase, although he did try all the time to impress her and win her favor. Like any other weak-minded fool, honestly. Her reaction to Imogen telling her Herbert was dead had been solely to check and make sure Imogen herself was unharmed and well.

Freyja quite enjoyed her veela hair pasta. The name still amusing her slightly, as she listened to Anabeth stammer even more about the boy she liked. And she did like him, that was clear to everyone but her. Perhaps Freyja would take Anabeth aside this summer and help boost the girl's confidence to accept her feels and know when to act on them.


Quinn was trying hard not to laugh, and Ellie in her lap playing with the glitter raining down off her wasn't making it easier. The whole time, Quinn said next to nothing. She really hadn't needed to. Beth was doing all the confirming and proving her statement true for her.

The silent twin, Runa, moved closer to Quinn and Ellie, possibly drawn to the kindred silent, thoughtful spirit of Quinn. "Well..." Quinn wasn't exactly sure how to respond to Runa there. She'd never considered herself a good one before, and still didn't really. "We're sisters. That's all." Sisters shared a bond, even if they weren't sisters by birth.


*Kleine nichtje = Little niece.

Not to change the subject at all. She waved her other hand with the bag of food in it. ”We should probably eat this before it spoils.” It was hard to believe that between the two of them that they hadn’t got to the food yet. ”Let’s grab a table before they are all gone.” Heading off in the direction of the tables.

Juni grinned. ”Yeah, they are just two crazy kids.” And for their age they were one hundred percent ridiculous in her opinion, she halfway snorted just thinking about it. ”That’s great. Tell everyone I said Hi. and Fabio!” man did she love that dog, although she had only met him once. But still it was dog, who didn’t like dogs. Also she missed Sonia a lot too.
Slate nodded and squeezed her hand. "At least there's only two more years of this." Well, one year before they were of age and maybe could travel together.

He grinned, spotting the food. Yes. Good. Food should happen.

He lead the way over to a table before stopping. "Do you want to sit in the grass area?" That actually sounded pretty good to him.

"Yeah. Of course. Maybe you can come with me when I visit them?"

The Leaky Cauldron was a little too smokey in the Main Seating Area. Fun fact- it wasn't smokey at all that very day, Chase just found that it gave off that vibe. Was musty a better adjective? Dark perhaps? Dim? Hmm.... He couldn't find the right word for it. As he took a step out into the courtyard, he felt himself relax. He immediately found this change of scene welcoming. Quieter, brighter, and relaxing. Yes, this was his aesthetic.

Besides he could even wear sunglasses.

The boy made his way over to a table in the sun and closed his eyes momentarily before pulling out a men's fashion magazine to read. He had homework this summer from his mother. He had to help her choose a nice suit for his father's birthday but what colours would be the best complement for him? Hmmm...

Research he must do.

Juni gave him a little smile. At least his attempts at making her feel better was working. ”Yeah. Or next year.” Depending on which way you look at it. But yes, traveling was definitely happening. ”Now that was something that I can definitely do.” She would love to see them, and she could easily swing that one.

Food. Now that was a good change of subject. It worked every time. She stopped too and looked around. ”Oh, sure. Grass it is.” It would be more picnicy. Too bad she forgot the blanket, she found a cozy spot in the grass by the fish pond. ”Here?” Here worked, they were sitting here. She had already called dibs.

Slate nodded. Next summer they'd be of age and then maybe her dad would be a little more open to her traveling. He didn't want her to just take off, he knew how important her family was to her.

But heading to India to see Sonia and Dexter and Fabio was a good start.

He followed her to the grass and took a seat next to her. "Here is perfect." Even though he was already on the ground. "You can see the fish from here."
