Default Coffee, Tea, & More Station

There's no sink or spigot in this little hole in the wall, so all water and supplies must be brought in from the outside - for now, at least. Still, someone has set up a long counter along the wall near the door, and there is often a pot of water and a pot of coffee bubbling away cheerfully over a cauldron flame. A magically enhanced and expanded icebox sits at the far end. You shouldn't take anything out that you didn't put in there, but there's plenty of room for storage.

Milo came down here once in awhile on his breaks during the workday. Usually it was when he needed a change of scenery or just preferred a little extra quiet. It seemed that not many people knew about this little hole in the wall. Or maybe they just didn't care.

Either way, Milo found himself down here today, his favorite mug in hand. Level Seven might have decent coffee, but he was really all about a certain specialty brand of tea, and that's what he was drinking now. Maybe he'd try to interpret his leaves when he was done.

Megan was touching everything.

Every wall, ever door, every piece of furniture... The roughness, the smoothness, JUST THE TEXTURE OF THE LOT WAS FASCINATING! The quest of understanding why these human creations had different textures was going to be a long one. Where would be a good place to begin?

This unusual activity of literally having a feel of all the things took her from level three all the way to the Underground Coffee Club. It wasn't just her sense of touch that was super activated now but also her sense of smell. Megan's sniffed and sniffed. "What is that GLORIOUS SMELL?" she wondered to herself. Her nose scrunched up as she tried to sniff out the scent. Little did she know just how close she was...

There she was now, poking her head through the opening of the Club. YES! THE DELICIOUSNESS WAS HERE! SOMEWHERE HERE!

"You. What have you got there?'' A long slim finger pointed to the strange object the man was holding. "Is that the thing that's giving off that pleasant aroma?''

Curiosity. Curiosity all around.

It was so nice to relax. Milo had just stretched out in one of the mismatched chairs - the most comfy one as he had already tested out - when a woman appeared. And even though he was on his break and was trying to relax, he wasn't too opposed to company, as long as she wasn't overly chatty.

He gave her a friendly, welcoming smile and just started to lift his cup to his lips to take a sip of tea when she stuck her finger out at him like that. Uh, what? He gave her a strange look. Did she... not know what tea was? And calling him you like that.... what a strange woman.

"Yeah, I guess so," Milo said, still holding the cup up and yet to take a sip. "It does taste really good, so I suppose it only makes sense that it smells just as good." He finally took a long sip of his tea. "I could make you a cup if you'd like." He did bring some extra leaves with him just in case he wanted another.

“It does?’’ Megan ventured to ask quietly and with even more mounting interest. There was another great sniff from her but this time as she approached the man. The idea that she might totally freak him out did not occur to her, such was the intent on the object being held as well as its contents.

It was only the offer made her raise her eyes at him. In Megan’s brain, there were thoughts swirling: Did cups only hold tea? Did they always come in that shape? What is tea made of? How did it FEEL? How did it TASTE?

There was just one way to find out.

The blond nodded. “I would very much like to observe the process of making this tea.’’

No maybe about it, this woman was absolutely freaking Milo out. And that really took a lot because he was typical pretty laid back. But who in their right mind walked up to someone and sniffed like that?? It was simply bizarre.

"Uh... yeah... alright." Freaked out or not, Milo was a gentleman and he would be true to his offer. He might have been giving her a weird look but he quickly composed his features and got up from his seat.

He pulled out his bag of gourmet tea leaves and headed over to the counter where most of the supplies were. "Did you bring your own cup?" Otherwise, he supposed he could conjure one for her.

Megan could not help it. More deep breaths of inhalation followed. The looks she was getting? They didn’t puzzle her very much. These were looks that she had received many times of recent. What did puzzle her was as to what the looks meant. This meant a trip to the library or carrying out an experiment was in order. Megan liked the idea of an experiment to determine the hypotheses that she would carefully devise.

As of now, this human was about to make her this tea. “Cup? Do you mean that?’’ A graceful index finger that belonged to Megan pointed at the object the man had been holding. “No.’’ But she wouldn’t mind having one. Curiosity erupted in her. Could the tea only be held in those containers? Could they be held and drunk from others? So many questions overwhelmed her but at that moment, it was as though she was alexithymia. Her feelings could not be expressed.

......uh.

They were all speaking English here, right? This woman certainly did not have a thick accent to make Milo think that English wasn't her first language, so he'd also have no reason to believe that she wouldn't know what he meant by cup.

And so the odd looks continued.

But, okay, she didn't have her own cup. Milo quickly conjured one with his wand, then filled it up with water. Heating it up magically until it was near boiling, he then added some leaves of his special tea blend, whistling a little as he worked.

"Here you are," he said, presenting the woman with the cup. "You might want to let it steep for a few minutes to get the best flavor though."

By now, Megan felt that she was used to the odd looks she got and so she began to ignore them now. Whatever. They could all look at her how they please. Watching magic being done was fascinating and made up her mind there and then to do further research on the topic. Could there be magic potions or spells that allowed her to enhance her senses of touch and taste?

Things were added to this cup and Megan took it when it was handed to her. Her eyes lit up as a hand enveloped the handle, the other curving around the cup. The warmth felt unbelievably good. It was so good that she actually stuck a finger in the contents.

“OW!’’ The finger was quickly pulled back. “That hurt,’’ she said accusingly to the man as though it were his fault.

Milo didn't give much more thought to the cup of tea once he handed it to the woman. Sure, she was acting really strangely, but he expected her to at least know how to drink hot beverages.

But just as he took his seat again, he nearly jumped out of it as she yelled loudly. His head turned sharply to see what happened.

"Well, yeah, of course it did. It's hot," he said, an impatient tone creeping into his normally casual voice. It looked like she stuck her finger into the cup. What?

Hot?

What was hot?

Was it that air rising from the cup? Megan was immediately taken up by it. She placed the same burnt finger in the midst of all the air. It was warmer than the actual tea but pleasant still. “Hot,’’ she repeated, meaning the tea.

It was rather fascinating. Megan nodded as though she understood the tea could not be drunk now, which she did. The blond would wait but not here. Without so much of a departing greeting, she headed for the door.

Off to more exploring.

Making her way to the coffee club, Victoria had a stack of papers under her arm, it wasn't really a break, but she needed away from her desk and move her legs. With her stress level high and her motivation higher she had been putting in long hours at that desk and needed a change in scenery, so making her way to the club she ordered a coffee and found a seat in the corner.

Setting the papers on the table she started going through the contracts making marks in places that needed resigned or redone by her team. The season was coming close to being over and she knew all the new shipments for equipment would be in soon. Just because the world cup was coming didn't mean the usual end of the season things were going to be put on hold, no she would make sure everything was organized and done correctly.

Charles enjoyed his occasional stroll around the Ministry. He felt it was important to not just seem like some figure head locked up inside his office, unapproachable and distant. Naturally, Charles exuded professionalism at all times but sometimes he just wanted to take a break. A proper break. Which was perhaps why the 70-something year old found himself wandering into the underground coffee club for the first time since taking up his post as Minister for Magic. His son, Ryunosuke, had suggested it to him. Mentioned something about a superior billiards table as well.

Loosening the tie under his crimson robes, Charles was pleased to see Victoria present. Someone he had been meaning to catch up with properly for some time now, though this term at the Ministry was a particularly busy one for them both. There was always something to do with regards to the World Cup and Charles himself would be going to the Leaky Cauldron soon to inspect and make sure that everything was suitable and up to Ministry standards for their foreign guests once they arrived. There were a few other inns he would be needing to check on as well. When most of the wizarding world was coming knocking on your door for the largest sporting event...there was much prep to be done.

He also needed to double check with Olivia and James regarding their progress with the camping grounds. Something else he should speak to Victoria about.

After a much needed cup of coffee or tea, whichever brew of choice it happened to be on the day.

"Good day, Victoria," he greeted jovially with a slight rub of his beared chin. "Do you mind if I join you?"

"Good day, Victoria," he greeted jovially with a slight rub of his beared chin. "Do you mind if I join you?"

Her face in her parchments, she really didn't notice anyone coming in and out, there was something of talent when being a mother, the talent of zoning fully out and turning any noise around you off. Being the mother of four and one grandchild, she had mastered this talent well. So being focused in her papers, she had gotten through three contracts before she heard her name and looked up.

"Oh, hello Charles, how are you?" She began to move her pile over to give the minister some room, "Don't mind these, I tend to work through breaks." Old habits were so hard to die off, but this wasn't a bad habit to have during the busy times in her department. "I would love to have some company, please sit." She would never tell the minister no, plus she did enjoy his company, it was such a breath of fresh air to have a normal and experienced minister leading them.


"Out for a stretch or is something going on that you were looking for me?" Victoria always worried things would go wrong when she wasn't around and this year it had seemed she had missed more work than she ever had in her entire 18 years with the ministry, but now that it was behind her she would be of perfect attendance again.

Pleased by her response - particularly in that his hand was already gripping the back of the chair opposite her and being pulled out - the Minister slipped into the seat and smoothed his terracotta colored robes. Naturally his hands slipped to pick up one of the pieces of parchment nearest him to give a quick look over. Pure curiosity more than anything else. "Just let me know if any of these are those documents you needed me to sign off on..." he mused aloud while skimming. He was pretty certain he had a quill in his pocket that he could do that over lunch.

"Ah well, I suppose it is a little of both," he chuckled as he returned the piece of parchment from where he had plucked it. "My son suggested I find this place, he was previously employed in Magical Law Enforcement, and seeing as I have been here over a year now and have not...it was about time I got myself a spot of tea here." His eyes settled on her with an affectionate twinkle. "It is by happy coincidence that I ran into you here as well." He paused a moment to summon himself that tea and three sugars. "How have you been?"

"How have you been?"

Victoria didn't bat an eye when he picked up a piece of parchment to read it, if there was one thing a mother of four had it was no control over privacy or organization. Children did that to you at times, so anyone could read whatever they wanted really, she didn't mind. "I think those are back on my desk, these are just the final contracts for the players. I was just going over them all and making sure none needed an update on any signatures or physicals before everything got started." She had checked them twice already, but not wanting to miss a detail she would look at them once more before filing them away.

"It is a nice place, I make it down here every so often, I prefer our coffee cart on the seventh floor though." Their little cart had been there as long as she had and it was the best little place that not many other floors really went to. "I hope you enjoy it here." She enjoyed his company so she was happy that he showed up while she was there.

"A coincidence?" Had he been looking for her? Though more people had this term since the World Cup, she wasn't use to that part, usually, she just saw the ones in her department and they kept busy with matches in all their sports. His next question made her realize why it was, he was checking up on her and her health, that was very sweet. "I am doing well, my healer has cleared me to do all activity as normal, so I don't have to lie to her anymore that I was resting when I was putting in more hours here than she would like." Victoria was always one to throw herself into her work, especially when home wasn't going the way she'd liked it to go.

"How are things going with you?"

A physicals. Matters he really did not need to fuss himself with then. Though since he already had a few in his hands, he couldn't help but view them over a bit. Though the majority of the lingo was rather jabberwocky to him, having very little experience with the quidditch leagues outside of being a long standing fan of the Wasps and Harpies. Some of the legal logistics, however, he was a bit more familiar with. Reminded him of the days that the Winged Horsemen were in their prime. Now? Well...now his guitar was sitting in his study and came out mostly for lullabies. "Maybe one day you'll have one of these for my granddaughter," he beamed with pride as he set them back down on the pile. "She is a budding keeper is the making, precious little bean sprout that she is. Will be starting Hogwarts in September."

It certainly seemed pleasant enough, though he was already mulling over a few redecoration options. Some more communal options. Hmmm.

Yes. A happy little coincidence. Smiling jovially, the Minister pulled one of his legs up over the knee of the other and observed her affectionately. "You know you could have delegated a few things to others. We are a strong unit here at the Ministry. There is no need for you to feel like you must handle everything on your own," he pointed out casually before taking a sip from his own coffee. In fact, he would likely mandate as much should a similar situation arise in the future. Seeing as it had only been his first year at the Ministry before and unfamiliar with some of the more intimate details, he was rather upset with himself for not being a bit more observant. At least everything had turned out okay this go around. "Though I am relieved that I no longer need to maintain a subconscious sense of fretting over your health." Though there was more to health than the physical, but this news did please him. "And...how about the family? The children flourishing and thriving?"

Among other more pressing matters....

"I am doing quite well....though I do wish one of my sons would settle down." He wanted more grandchildren, you see. "Please with our over all progress and even more pleased with the way in which the World Cup has helped our economy. Your department has done the sector of the wizarding world a great service in winning the bid."

Ever since the day he'd been stuck in the elevator with Singh, Valentin had done two things. 1) He's taken the stairs, which was a given. 2) He'd gotten his coffee before he came to the ministry. Today however? He had been running late, the information he had to relay to Phora being too important to delay by stopping for coffee. Especially since he had to take the stairs to get up to Level 5.

So, information delivered, Valentin was on his way to accomplish task #2. Only there was no way he was going down to the Atrium for coffee. Nope. Non. Nadda. Niet. It wasn't happening. He'd just have to find coffee someplace else.

And that someplace else seemed to be...a random hole in the wall....

Making an audible noise that was something between a sigh and an 'ugh.' He walked up to the cauldron of bubbling coffee. He sniffed, eyed it speculatively, and then scooped himself up a cup - if only so he could get a better sniff of it.

Alba was all sorts of lost. She as suppose to be on her way to find the Department head of Mysteries. There was a new employee that they had failed to get a picture of of their first day. And being that she was in Human resources and all it was her job to take care of that. Well really it was their job to take care of it in the first place, but seeing as this new employee and her both started on the same day, hardly her fault ... this time anyway.

So making haste to get the job done she had gotten herself turned around, this department was after all a 'mystery' no pun intended. Alba did a snort and giggle to herself. She was hardly paying much attention to her surroundings and hand a stack of papers in her hands and her wand tucked behind her ear ... yeah.. maybe not the safest of places but hey, gotta do what you gotta do. Side stepping a gentleman in front of her ... she caught her shoe just on the head of his and ...... down she went straight to the floor with a THUMP .. her wand fell from behind her ear, hit the ground, and sent a few wayward sparks toward???? Well who knows.... hopefully not the gentleman in front of her...... barely daring to look Alba cried out ... "I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry." She was in such shock she hardly noticed the throbbing pain in her ankle......

Cup of questionable coffee raised to his nose, he sniffed, make a face that implied he had sniffed a port-a-john and turned to dump it out.

Only he didn’t get the chance to do anything beyond turning, because something hit his foot. His body jerked. Coffee flew. Sparks flashed. And suddenly Valentin was left standing there, hands outstretched with a stained, wet vest and a smoking, dripping cup of coffee. French curse words filled the hallway. What was with this ministry? Did it have a personal vendetta against him drinking coffee? Or did it just hate his clothing choices?!

The longer he stayed working in Britain, the more sympathy he had for the Head Mistress of Beauxbatons. Sure, her handling of the situation had caused a lot of problems for him here, but he completely understood where she had been coming from.

The sorrys, however, echoed a little louder than the French curses. As he shook his hand and deposited the smoking dripping coffee cup on a counter, he looked around to see a young lady sprawled on the floor. ”You reahl-lee need to watch whairé you aré goeng.” He said, irritation in his voice. He produced a hanky out of his pants pocket and proceeded to wipe off his hands and then at his vest. His wand remained firmly in his pocket, as Valentin was rubbish at cleaning spells. He wondered what his dry cleaner was going to say about this suit.

Cleaned up as much as he could without a cleaning spell, Valentin tucked the hanky back in his pocket and then leaned over and picked up the young lady’s wand. It was smoking a little and a part of him hoped that it had been damaged, because it would serve her right for ruining his suit. He flipped it as if he was flipping a dagger and caught it by the tip, then offered it over to her, handle ready for her to grasp. ”And you need to tak bettair care of zis.”

He left his hand out for her to grab once she had taken the wand. Valentin might a cold crabby jerk, but he wasnt a heartless ninny. Besides, he could be chilverious on occation.

Alba slightly disheveled looked up at the gentleman's out stretched hand. She took her wand first and promptly tucked it back behind her ear and then took his hand for the help to get up. "Thanks for the help. Sorry about running into you there, was in a bit of hurry and got all turned around down here." Now that Alba was back on her feet she could take good stock of what damage she had done. Her paperwork was soaked with coffee and singed on the edges. "Well that was a morning wasted" She added toward her paperwork. She grabbed her wand and waved it over the parchments on the ground which stack themselves and soared into her hands.

"Now that that's sorted." She brushed her hand on her robes and stuck it out toward the man. "I'm Alba, again I'm so sorry about that." Now that Alba had a second to collect herself she was beginning to feel more embarrassed than anything.

”You know what zey sai abut 'urryeng. You miss what's right haire.” He closed his longer fingers around hers and tugged her up to her feet. Beyond that he didn’t make any effort to help her collect her things. After all, it wasn’t his mess to clean up. His brown eyes watched her speculatively as she tucked the wand back behind her ear without even looking at it to make sure it wasn’t damaged. In the past year, Valnetin had come to believe that the English really didn’t focus much on wand care. It was quite the travesty. ” Et whairé waire you 'eaded een such a rush?” It was an honest question. Valentin didn’t rush anywhere unless something was on fire. Or – apparently if there were Acromantulas taking over a playground. He shuddered at the memory. Not because of the giant spiders, but because of the way he had perspired and at the state of his clothing by the time they had contained the horde of Acromantulas.

His eyes lingered on her outstretched hand. It was dirty, but he also knew it would be rude to ignore the introductory gesture. ” Ambassadair Valentin Roux,” he said, finally taking her hand. He shook it up, down, and up again with a sturdy shake before letting it go.

"Ooooo..... a Frenchmen." Alba said with a smile, she made sure to return the steady grip during the hand shake ... you know for feminism and all. Now that things were back in semi order and the blush was draining for her cheeks, she was able to truly look at that man in front of her. "I work up in the Minister's office, in human resources, I'm new, and was trying to find the Department of Mysteries... which turns out is a mystery." Alba snorted as she laughed again. Now that she said the pun out loud it was even funnier to her. "Get it?" She added. Alba wasn't positive the man in front of her had a sense of humor. What little interaction they had she was getting the vibe that she was more of an annoyance to him than anything.

Throwing all caution to wind she added "Look, let me get you a new cup of coffee. Least I can do." gesturing toward the smoldered remains of cup in front of them. Now to pretend she liked coffee in order to not look rude... and maybe if Valentin knew where he was going, he could help get Alba to the right place ... maybe.

The French thing. Yes, many people found his accent amusing. He didn’t. Still, despite her spilling coffee all over him, the young lady was being polite and since Valentin was in a fairly good mood, he didn’t spit out a snarky comment. ”Oui. Parlez-vous français?” He asked letting go of her hand. It would be nice to speak his own language for a while, but he wasn’t holding his breath. He didn’t find many people around here to be multilingual. Except Phora…and they weren’t exactly on speaking terms at the moment. Well, unless business required it.

Not only was she polite, she was witty. Something about that endeared her to Valentin. He raised an eyebrow in amusement and also to indicate that he understood her joke. ” Ai believé you are a level too low fair zat departmon.” He knew, only because he had the occasional business in the courtrooms and the lifts stopped at Level 9. He wasn’t sure how she could have missed it, unless. ”Ai assumé you took ze stairs?” he held a hand out pointing her towards the hallway and away from the port-a-john coffee in the cauldron he was not sporting on his vest. He also took a step in the direction of the stairs. If she was going to get him a coffee, it wasn’t going to be from here. He’d rather have the swill they passed off as coffee on Level 5. ” If zo, smart lady. Ai don’t recommend ze use of zé lifts.”

It had been years since Alba had spoken french. At one point she was semi fluent ... or at least could understand the basics, but ... "Oui, mais très peu" Alba smiled, there she could still do basics ... Though this conversation had started in complete disaster Alba was having fun, she hadn't met very many people since being back at the Ministry or even back in the wizarding world really. "I may have had a mishap with the lifts up on level one .... as in I broke it" Alba blushed a little it hadn't taken maintenance very long to fix it, but still. "Figured it was best to just take the stairs from now."

"Well no wonder I can't find it! Alba added in response to be on the wrong level, she had come down just a hair to far. It seemed that despite being French, Valentin knew more about the Ministry than she did. That could probably work to her advantage .. she could definitely learn from him.

"How long have you been the ambassador?" Alba was very interested in that job, how exactly did one become an ambassador? She had about a million questions ... but figured she start slow ... no need to scare Valentin off.
