Default St. James's Park


Tucked amid London's busy streets and buildings, being a roughly six-minute walk from the Ministry entrances, is St. James's Park. Covering 57 acres and featuring a small lake with two islands, there is plenty to explore. Entering the park from Horse Guards Road to the east, one will find themselves near a park pavilion and quaint cottage. From the Mall to the north is a gate kiosk, drinking fountain, and a tiny coffee shop. Walking far enough west, one will stumble upon the Vitoria Memorial, Buckingham Palace, and the park's playground. The rest of the park provides a number of trails and a bridge that gives access across the lake from the south end of the park to the north.

On a sunny day, the park is a perfect getaway, especially during one's lunch break or after clocking out of work. It is is an excellent place to have a picnic under the shade of a tree, enjoy watching the waterfowl and resident colony of pelicans idly swimming in the lake, or go for a stroll or a run along the trails with a friend before having to venture back into the loud, bustling city.

Brittany and the three girls fell into a light banter, laughing and chatting and catching up, all thoughts about the oddity in the tree above them forgotten.

In fact, the stretch that the Becky was doing looking lovely, and so Brittany joined in, placing one hand against the tree for balance.
This wasn't good, no, this wasn't good at all. The Bowtruckles watched as more humans came near their tree and one even was touching it. They looked at each other and back to the humans.

What should they do?

Once the other one put her hand on the tree one of the Bowtruckles didn't wait for the others. He jumped into her hair and started to pull it. Seeing their friend defend their tree two more jump down at the girls.

”OH MY GOD BECKY! Look at that- - That!!!!” Brittany screamed as something fell out of the tree and landed on her friend's head. It looked like….like a tree branch come to life. Could it be a European mantis?

Becky meanwhile was busy screaming and jumping around as something yanked on her hair. Her hands went to her pony tail and started brushing at whatever it was climbing on her. "BEESSSS!!!!"

”Ahhhhh….” the other girl screamed as something starting yanking on her hair. "It's not beeszzzzzzz!" the other one yelled back.

All the girls screams sorta melded together rising and falling in shrieks and squeals as they waved their arms and cavorted trying to get the bug-stick things to stop attacking them.

PROTECT THE TREES!!

The little ones were jumping on the two girls pulling their hair and scratching them to try to keep their tree safe. One of the bowtruckles fell off the girl and grabbed at her leg.

Tiffany managed to get one bug out of her hair, but it just seemed to cling to her leg. She gave her foot a shake, still screeching loudly at the top of her lungs.

Becky flung one of the bugs away and began running away like her life depended upon it.

Tiffany made eye contact with the other girl. Running away seemed like a grand idea. Both turned running after Becky. ”Wait for us!” Tiffany screamed. Hopefully the bugs or bees or whatever it was that attacked them wouldn’t follow.

It was a bright enough day outside that Adam could sorta-kinda-not really see and he wasn’t really using his support cane as he walked along the path in St. James Park. Mostly he had it out so that others would see it and (hopefully) keep a respectful berth. While is eyesight was getting better, it was still slow progress. He could see better in bright settings – like today when the sun was shining, but everything was extremely fuzzy as if he had the worst astigmatism in the world. But he (and the healers) hoped he might soon be able to wear eyeglasses - which would help significantly. They’d be coke-bottle lenses, but still, he could possibly stop using the cane.

It;s weird to be out , Adam thought. The pudding incident in the food court had given him a slight phobia of going out in public and he was quite certain that his outing into the Atrium with Zita hadn’t helped. But Adam was determined to work through his latest issues. Honestly, looking back on his life, he was kind of surprised he didn’t have more issues. Maybe I should see a shrink, he wondered/

His over-sized purple sunglasses were perched on his nose as he ambled along. A dark shape formed in his vision and he assumed it was the big tree where Jory had said to meet him. He was excited to see his friend, as they hadn’t talked in a long time. As his support cane hit something, he could vaguely make out the shape of the bench and sat down. He folded up his cane and laid it across his lap. And maybe, just maybe, Jory could give him some advice about Zita…

For Jory, it had been a busy few weeks at the Ministry for the MLE Department because of the entire business at Hogwarts but things were winding down a bit. It was because of this that he was able to now get back into the swing of things, to pay attention to things he had neglected. One of them happened to be a person, his friend Adam.

The Auror headed for the park and he was glad he and Adam had agreed to meet outside. It was quite the beautiful day and the walk to it helped clear his head from the work that was still pending from the day. Sometimes, all he needed was a good moment to feel motivated fully. Anyway, he had arrived at the Park and those purple sunglasses were difficult to miss.

“How’s it going, Adam?” Jory asked by way of greeting. He came closer until he was under the tree. “I’m so sorry about not seeing you recently. It’s been one heck of a few weeks.’’

Ah Jory was here! Adam was grateful that the other man had called out as he walked up, so as to not startle him. ”Hi,” Adam’s face lit up in a genuine smile. It had been a long time since he had spent time with his friend, but life happened like that. He too had been busy, so it wasn’t just Jory’s fault. Perhaps they should schedule monthly lunch dates to keep in touch. Adam filed away the idea for discussion at a later date. He waved his hand dismissively at his apology. ” I have been buzy too.” He’d met a girl, gone out with her a few times and then had that mess of a visit from her at work. He was so confused about the entire situation he didn’t know where to begin with it. So instead, he turned the conversation back to Jory. ”How is zee family?” he asked. He’d never met Jory’s wife, but the man had talked about her a few times.

By now, Jory had gotten used to and a better understanding of Adam’s accent. When they had just met, he’d had a difficult time but that was a thing of the past. “Busy with what?’’ Jory asked, genuinely interested. Theirs was a friendship still strong despite not spending much time together recently. Thank Merlin for friendships like that where everyone was just able to pick up from where they left off. Jory looked Adam over and decided that his friend didn’t look bad; he seemed the same.

Jory grinned. “Gwen’s busy with her job at St. Mungo’s and the children are off to Hogwarts. Well, Beauxbatons.’’ Everyone knew about the change for this school year. “That reminds me, Gwen said to invite you over for dinner this weekend. Whichever day’s fine for you. She added that you’d better not miss it because she’s dying to meet you.’’ Jory often talked of Adam, that’s why. “You’ll be there, right?’’

He motioned to his eyes. ”Healers und zuch. Zhey zhink I might be ready to try glazes.” He wasn’t sure if he himself was ready, but he really wanted to see again. ”Und I've been spenting ein lot of time vith zomeone.” He wasn’t really sure how to describe his relationship with Zita. His ears turned a bit pink. "In fact, I vas hoping vou might offer zome advice about her."

He turned towards Jory. He’d not met Gwen before for all he knew, he might have run into her at St. Mungo’s, but he liked to believe that if he’d have recognized the name if he had heard it. But Dinner? Well, he guessed that he didn’t really have a choice in the matter. ”Ah…” Did he and Zita have anything thing planned this weekend? He didn’t think so. ”Zunday might be best…” Because Zita usually made their plans for Friday or Saturday. ” Can I bring anything? Perhaps ein kood reparo charm?” he tried to joke feeling a little awkward because he was bound to break something at his friend’s house.

At least he knew what Beuxbatons, but he didn’t know why Jory’s children would be there. ”Vhy are zee kids at Beauxbadons?"

Adam mentioning glasses gave Jory an idea. “I know Gwen would be more than happy to check your eyes. Trust me, Adam. You won’t have a choice. Gwen will insist so you might as well give in the first time she asks.’’ His wife was still so passionate about her work, something that never seemed to lessen despite all these years. “Are you ready to wear glasses though?’’ Some were reluctant to, believing that the glasses would alter their appearance in a bad way.

At this little and interesting revelation, Jory looked slyly over his friend. “Have you? Tell me all about her and how I can help.’’ He’d try to be a good friend and use all his dating experience starting from his years at Hogwarts when he was in a relationship with Ronnie all the way up to the present with his marriage to Gwen.

The Auror grinned, picking up on the joke immediately. “The Reparo Charm will suffice.’’ This wasn't to poke fun at Adam as he was sure Adam knew. He grew serious now. “Didn’t you hear about what happened at Hogwarts?’’

Oh great! Another healer to look his eyes over. Adam tried to tell himself that at least this one was going to feed him dinner afterwards and Adam did like to eat. He didn’t think he would be able to avoid Gwen and the exam. After all, from what Jory had told him about his wife, she seemed more stubborn that Adam's father. ”Hmmm? Oh…I am not sure,” he said honestly. ” I do not zink zey are going to be very flattering und zee lenzes vill be zo big." He held up his fingers to indicate the thickness of the lenses. "Zhere is nein guarantee zat zey vill even help.”

”Vell,” he said not really sure where to start. ” Her name is Sita. Sche is ein lot younger zan me. Ve have gone out quite ein few times.” He paused. ”I am not really certain if ve are actually dating or not. Sche stopped by zee Ministry zee other day, brought me ein baked good…got stuck in zee Entry Chamber …” he didn’t really know where to go with that story. She had been so unhappy when he found her and she was pretty unhappy when he walked her out of the Atrium. It was, however the turning point of when he’d realized he really did like Zita. ”Chory,” he decided to be honest. ” It takes me ein vile to open up to people. I...I zink I really like her, but I only chust learned it.”

He was glad Jory liked his joke, but sensed the change in the seriousness of their conversation when Jory brought up the school. ”Hogvarts?” he asked. ”Nein, vhat happened at Hogvarts?” He had been a little out of the loop on things. He didn’t get the paper and had been spending too much time working and at the healers or going out with Zita.

If it bothered Adam that Gwen would be checking his eyes, he didn’t show it. Jory knew it wouldn’t be bad; Gwen was a very caring Healer. He was lucky to have her, especially when he received an injury on the job. He looked sad for Adam when he was shown how thick the lenses were going to be. “Think along the lines of them helping you to see. Surely you hate not being able to see the world fully?’’ Poor Adam… he was missing out and Jory wished he wasn’t.

“Is she Indian?’’ Jory wondered, not for a moment thinking that he had gotten the name wrong because of Adam’s accent. He listened with interest to the words and hoped he could offer some expert advice; the right kind of advice, the kind that will help Adam out. “I hope she wasn’t stuck in that Chamber for a long while.” He knew all about that particular Chamber. “Anyway. If you really like her and are starting to care for her, you should let her know. Perhaps she’s starting to feel the same about you but she’s afraid to let you know. My point is, you wouldn’t know what will develop until you both talk about where you currently stand with each other.

“An unusual fog invaded Hogwarts and two students were killed by it. While the Ministry looked into getting the issue solved, the students were temporarily relocated to Beauxbatons for the school year.’’ A clear and concise version to quickly update Adam.

Of course he hated not seeing the world properly. It sucked. Especially when he walked into things or knocked things over. It was harder to work on his potions. He missed sunrises and looking at the full moon. He wanted to property look at Zita and be able to give her compliments. He nodded to Jory’s question. ”Vou are right,” Jory usually was right and honest with Adam which is why their friendship had worked. In fact, it was probably Adam’s only real friendship.

”Nien, she is Englisch.” His accent made him mispronounce the name, and he knew it, but he had tried to produce the hard “Z” sound at the being of the word and it didn’t work. ”Her father ovns Vella Teas?” Perhaps Jory had heard of them. ”Ve vere zet up on ein blind date last year.“ It had gone well, and Adam had asked her to meet her again a few times. They met up fairly regularly and, while he wasn’t seeing anyone else, he wasn’t sure if she was. ”I have tried to tell her,” he started. ”But she…she is – she can be – ein bit vithdravn. Makes it hard.” Some people might call her stuck up or conceited, but Adam didn’t think so. He had a feeling she was hiding something she wasn’t ready to deal with. And it wasn’t like Adam didn’t have his own issues and traumas that when added to the fact that he didn’t really develop feelings for people until he got to know them, well, it often was off putting to other people as well. Unusually to the point that they went running in the other direction.

He listened as Jory quickly summed up the Hogwarts situation. Well, that was interesting. He wondered why they went to France though. French people could be so….French. He’s spent a season there when he traveled around trying to figure out what to do with his life. It was his least favorite place, well, expect for the desserts; it was where he learned how to his signature chocolate caramel tart. Perhaps he would make one for when he went to Jory’s for dinner. ”Zounds traumatizing. Are they adjuzting alright?” He wondered why he hadn’t heard more about it at work. Probably because he’d been staying locked up on Level 9 as much as possible. "Or are zey enjoying the adventure of a new place?"

If it bothered Adam that Gwen would be checking his eyes, he didn’t show it. Jory knew it wouldn’t be bad; Gwen was a very caring Healer. He was lucky to have her, especially when he received an injury on the job. He looked sad for Adam when he was shown how thick the lenses were going to be. “Think along the lines of them helping you to see. Surely you hate not being able to see the world fully?’’ Poor Adam… he was missing out and Jory wished he wasn’t.

“Is she Indian?’’ Jory wondered, not for a moment thinking that he had gotten the name wrong because of Adam’s accent. He listened with interest to the words and hoped he could offer some expert advice; the right kind of advice, the kind that will help Adam out. “I hope she wasn’t stuck in that Chamber for a long while.” He knew all about that particular Chamber. “Anyway. If you really like her and are starting to care for her, you should let her know. Perhaps she’s starting to feel the same about you but she’s afraid to let you know. My point is, you wouldn’t know what will develop until you both talk about where you currently stand with each other.

“An unusual fog invaded Hogwarts and two students were killed by it. While the Ministry looked into getting the issue solved, the students were temporarily relocated to Beauxbatons for the school year.’’ A clear and concise version to quickly update Adam.

Of course he hated not seeing the world properly. It sucked. Especially when he walked into things or knocked things over. It was harder to work on his potions. He missed sunrises and looking at the full moon. He wanted to property look at Zita and be able to give her compliments. He nodded to Jory’s question. ”Vou are right,” Jory usually was right and honest with Adam which is why their friendship had worked. In fact, it was probably Adam’s only real friendship.

Jory was pretty pleased about Adam agreeing with him. It usually made him sad to see the man struggling at times to see things that were right before him, though there were more times that Jory admired Adam for not letting his poor sight stopping him from living a normal life. That in itself was a major accomplishment.

Ah. So Adam’s girlfriend was English after all. Accents could surely misconstrue things. “I’ve heard of them just a bit,’’ Jory confirmed though he was more interested in the girl. She needed to be proper enough to date Adam and the Auror did not mean in looks or wealth; he meant that she needed to have a very decent heart and personality. Had he been the type to often crack jokes, he would have when Adam mentioned ‘blind date’ but as it was, he was focused and on a mission to learn about Zita. “Is she always withdrawn?’’ If so, then it could be a part of her personality. If that wasn’t the case then there had to be some other reason.

“It’s been a bit difficult at first but over the summer they’ve both lost the fear and became excited at the prospect of exploring a foreign school. They’re in touch with Gwen and I and are doing fine. Both admit that they’d rather be back at Hogwarts though.’’ Jory couldn’t blame them. Hogwarts was the best in his opinion. “Okay, Adam. How has work been treating you?”

How has work been treating you?”

Had Jory made his joke about the blind date being actually blind, Adam would have laughed. Because, well, he himself had made the same joke upon joining Zita at the Leaky on their first date. Adam might be sensitive, but he still have a good sense of humor about most things. He wasn’t surprised that Jory had heard of Vella teas. Most people seemed to know them, even if Adam himself hadn’t been familiar with the brand. Tea wasn’t his thing. He had used to be into coffee, but well, that changed after one of the Encephalons had taken over his body. He’d drank enough coffee for a lifetime during that incident – hadn’t slept for a month either as a result. Nope, now he stuck to hot chocolate. Soothing, safe hot chocolate. He sort of wished he had a glass now, because he didn’t really know the answer to Jory’s question and the chocolate would have soothed his concerns. ”It comes und goes,” he decided to say, because it really depended on where they were and what they were doing regarding Zita's withdraws. ” Sche can be very – feely, but not…alvays…about vat is on her mind,” he said it slowly because his mind was reviewing their outings and because he was certain he had the wrong English word for what he wanted to say. ”Sche does not zeem to like to talk about zee past much,” which wasn’t odd to Adam. He didn’t – and in some causes couldn’t – talk about his own past.

Adam was going to comment about how he had always enjoyed exploring new places when Jory changed the subject to work. ”Vork is fine. Nothing has blovn up in mein face for ein vile,” he joked with his lop-sided smile. But as he thought about it, he decided he was probably due for an exploding potion or two. Both his eyebrows were whole, his hair wasn’t streaked with an odd color, and there wasn’t a weird scent (like pineapple and chicken) lingering around him. This was probably the longest he'd gone without having a potion go haywire on him. Potion explosions were fine to him, a byproduct of his job and didn't worry him too much. He just was never going to head back into the space chamber at any point. Ever. Never. Nope!

Nor was he going to go up to the Food Court by himself ever again. He debated telling Jory about the pudding incident, but decided not to, if only so he didn’t have to relive the entire humiliating situation. Had Adam known another auror had been the one who dumped the pudding on him and then thought it funny to mess with him due to his lack of vision, Adam might have reported it to Jory. But Adam had no idea the fellow had worked in law. To him, the guy has just been a giant bully. ”Vou?” he asked. He figured that Jory had probably been busy out in the fields, since he hadn’t run into him around the Ministry.
