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.

Well, except study more next term which might be a bit hard with this new job. But he didn’t want to think about that either. Instead he focused on the big smile she was giving him. ”Yeah?” apparently his meaning had once again gotten across. Perhaps he wasn’t so bad at this communicating thing. Or maybe she was just really good at understanding him? ”They look like fun. And then maybe we can go to your favorite restaurant for dinner. Or lunch.” Because they could go out for an early bus if she had practice. And again, dating adults went to dinner. Right?

”Yeah, I’ll be experiencing that,” He their hands a small swing, completely unaware of what he had said because he was so delighted that she hadn’t pulled her hand away. She was right, he did have experience with his dad, which was the only reason he figured he was going to be able to take on the mascot duties and school. But it would surely be different having to go through that himself. Thankfully, he only really had to cheer at the home games.

That smile was like a beam of sunlight. At her direction he headed over to the tree by the water. After putting the basket down, he took the blanket and moved to lay it out for them with a grand flourish that sent the blanket fluffing out. Only the wind took the blanket and caused it to twist and flop over his head. ”Son of a plimpy…” he muttered pulling the blanket off his face. His hair was now messed up. He took a deep breath and tried laying out the blanket again, only this time he didn’t use the flourish. It went down without too much of a fight and he sighed gratefully. [b]”After you,”[b] he motioned for her to sit down. Once she was settled, he moved the basket so it would sit between them where they could both access it and then joined her.


"That's a good mindset to have!" She nodded. If people were going to worry about exams, let it be beforehand. "It's not like you could do anything to change any of it now anyway." She added, chuckling. Her view on exams, right there.

And they were talking about FOOD glorious fooood, so of course she looked even happier now. From exams to food, yep, definitely an improvement on topics! "Sounds perfect! It'll depend on which of the buses you'll want to go; some of them have a million different routes you can do, so if you want to do them all it'll have to be dinner." Anna laughed. "Oh, I think you get some discounts for some other tourist attractions and places when you go on those!" And she didn't know about him, but she thought discounts were a pretty cool thing. If only Quality Quidditch Supplies had more of them. Oh well.

At his next comment, she gave him a confused look as she continued to guide their way towards their picnic spot. He'd be experiencing that? "You mean after you graduate?" Of course he did, he'd be a healer in sports (probably Quidditch, given his family history)... surely that was what he meant.

Anna couldn't help but laugh out loud at the blanket incident. How adorable was he!? Aw, and look at his hair all over the place now. She chuckled some more and would've fixed it herself IF ONLY she didn't feel terribly awkward about it still. She was indeed tempted, but no. Not yet, not YET. She couldn't. "Thanks!" She said as she took a seat, shifting a little as he placed the basket down and took a seat himself. Rubbing her hands together, she gave him and eager look before wiggling her eyebrows and looking back at the basket. What WAS in there after all!??

"Yes," he'd replied the same time as Jessa, which made him smile, but then frown at his future wife's harsh words toward his daughter. It was due? Oh, is that how she really felt about him? He'd deal with that later. "I want us to be a happy family, officially, Mallory, and that includes you." Fletcher was definitely applying the authoritative father tone here. What he said was law in this family with Jessa's permission, of course.

He looked to his daughter with a serious, if not slightly sad, expression. "I was waiting until she said yes to tell you." And no, Dunk, this had nothing to do with dragon eggs. He shot the kid a warning look with a small shake of his head.


Yeah right, that they wanted to include her. That was a load of dragon dung and they all knew it. "You don't want to include me. You just want me to babysit. You're just using me to entertain your son when it's convenient to you." She practically spat the last few words.

Mal stood up from the picnic basket at her father's explanation, which frankly just drove the knife of betrayal deeper into her heart. (She'd been reading a lot of William Shakespeare recently, okay?!) She glared at her dad and gripped the straps of her backpack. "Don't bother inviting me because I'm not going to show up to babysit Dunk for your wedding."

And with that, the twenty-something apparated out of there with a loud snap.


Jessa didn't really pay attention to the 'due' comment that bothered Fletcher. Maybe he'd explain later, she was trying her best right now to absorb Mal's words and decipher them and try to assist in any way possible. "Mal, no, we didn't mean it like that. We--" The girl was gone, actually. Dang the apparition thing, wasn't it too risky to do it right in the middle of this huge muggle park?? SIGH. This wasn't the point here.

Jessa sighed audibly and rubbed her forehead before she also caught sight of the ring. The thing that busted them. She contemplated taking it off. Didn't, just played with it. "You should try and find her." She didn't look at Fletcher, just said it in general. So much for the strategy they put in place to deal with Mallory, it was multilayered and everything.


Duncan thought it was unfair that he couldn't disappear angrily like his sister, because no one was paying attention to him anymore, it was like they forgot about what he was asking for.

............... "Dad? What's the difference between married people and unmarried people?" He was curious why Mallory was so against it, you know? Not being able to connect the dots for why she was mad. "It's a beautiful ring, mum." He added in a lower tone since his mother was staring at the thing like it was the plague. Also, he knew how much she loved her jewellery and accessories and needed to butter her up for the--yes, you guessed it--the dragon egg.

Excellent, what a day. That had worked SO PERFECTLY. This was exactly how Fletcher had worried this would go. He wouldn't be lying if he'd said Mallory's reaction was a large factor in how long he had delayed this proposal ANYWAY.

He made a stupid tchhhhhhing sound under his breath at Jessa. "Yes. Of course. Later." Now would not be the time. His eldest always needed some time to cool off when she...disappeared like this.

He glanced instead to Duncan, the kid who hadn't entered his hormonal years yet, thank Merlin. "Nothing, there is no difference," he muttered, starting to pack up the picnic basket now. "There's just some things married people can do and it's a whole SOCIETY thing to wear a ring and formally declare your LOVE in public and it's all a bunch of hullabaloo that matters to some old-fashioned people and yet not at all to others." Whuuuuuuuuups, had he said all that aloud? He didn't care at this point; he was starting to get grumpy himself. Why couldn't everyone in his family just GET ALONG for ONE BLOODY DAY.

What was that noise he made at her? Jessa fixed him with a stern look, not the same looks she gave the little Duncan, of course. Fine. If he knew it wasn't a good gesture to immediately follow her instead of having her locked up in that dramatic head of hers, then be it. Okay. What Jessa was upset about now was that his daughter ruined the majority of the proposal memory now. His daughter because she couldn't bring herself to say the girl's name.

Little Duncan received a small, hasty smile at his comment as Jessa helped Fletcher pack although not in the same shaky way he was doing it. She paused when he started explaining to their SON what marriage was. "Wow. Please don't hold back on the romance. I think we can take even more." He stomped on the whole idea and sentiment behind this ring he just gave her! Was he serious??

"It's a promise." Jessa looked at her son, trying to ERASE what her emotional boyfriend did. "To stay with the one you love no matter how dumb, irrational and old they get--" Stressing on every word. "With all their stupid packages, too." She added this bit in a calmer tone. They were done for the day, right? Right. Just going to wipe little Dunk's chocolate-y mouth and get the heck out of here.


Oh no. His parents were angry now. Upset maybe was a better word, whatever it was, it made him worried. He wished he didn't ask... maybe it was a bad time. His father's answer was different from his mother's. Both needed follow-up questions but he felt the electricity in the air, and just kept quiet. He did move closer prompted by his mother's wiping process.

... why did Mallory leave?

"Wow, please don't hold back on the sarcasm. I think I can take even more," Fletcher grumbled under his breath, exactly like Jessa, giving up on the packing since she was taking that over anway. He did, however, listen to her and Duncan, and let out a small snort at her explanation.

Yeah, a promise. Alright. He wasn't regretting his promise, not at all. "It's just that some people like to RUIN THINGS for others," he grumped loudly. He was referencing his daughter, of course, not his future wife. "Some people are jealous, Dunk, and some people are impatient, and some people just can't stand to see others happy. I don't know." He stood up, though unlike Mallory, he wasn't about to just LEAVE his family. He motioned for Dunk to get up too, so he could pick up the blanket.

"Promise me you won't act like your sister, son," he put an arm around his boy. "Be more patient than her, okay?"

"Promise me you won't act like your sister, son," he put an arm around his boy. "Be more patient than her, okay?"
Jessa rolled her eyes at Fletcher. "Very mature." She jabbed back holding up the basket into the nook of her elbow. Her eyes pierced his at that snort. "Don't be a butt. You're really walking on thin ice right now." She spoke louder, anger was starting to show on her face. It was fine that he was sabotaging her son's view of marriage, but to make fun of the promise spiel she gave, WHICH WAS TRUE, was a whole new level of being a jerk for no reason.

Also, what the heck did that have to do with anything?? Jealousy, impatience and?? Mallory wasn't jealous, she was lashing out. Jessa didn't reply. FINE. If he wanted to teach his son that, FINE. She just stood there coolly, not looking at him as he struggled with the blanket. He was demanding promises from the kid now, great. Were they done here?


Duncan definitely regretted the question by now. There seemed to be so many answers to it, none of which made sense. "Okay." He provided, hoping this would make his parents stop giving more answers...?!!!!

He hurried to his feet when his father grabbed the blanket. Was the picnic over?? But they didn't get to eat all the strawberries yet, and it was still sunny outside. Duncan looked at his father sincerely when his arm wrapped around him. It sounded very important to dad, so "I promise." Not sure how he'd achieve that promise but he hated having his parents like this and if he could fix it by promising, then he was going to. "You don't have to get me a dragon egg anymore. It's okay." Sacrificing his personal happiness for his parents' happiness right here.

Fletcher realized he was being a huge jerk and yet he felt like he couldn't stop. His mood had turned sour and depressed, and he was slowly realizing that it was he and his daughter alone who had ruined the day. He had no one to blame but himself.

"I'm sorry." He said abruptly. He knew that half-heartedly apology wouldn't work, but he had noticed the concern on his son's face and he didn't like it. Plus the kid had even given up on his dragon egg story, which was telling. "Okay, Dunk," he replied. "Let's go." Fletcher had the blanket now and started walking himself and Dunk toward the park exit. He assumed Jessa would be with them.

Jessa appreciated his apology. She didn't say anything, though, she just held the basket and followed her future husband and son to the exit. As soon as she reached the home, she would take a long hot bath to calm herself. Ugh. They needed to find Mallory a boyfriend to get her busier than to do this again. A boyfriend would do that, in Jessa's experience.

Duncan nodded, happily taking his father's hand and walking along. He took his hand himself, not because he may run off like usual but because his father was sad. It was for him, okay?

.......... he shouldn't have given up the egg thing.

Rubbing her hands together, she gave him and eager look before wiggling her eyebrows and looking back at the basket. What WAS in there after all!??

”There are more than one route for the buss?” he asked, only slightly embarrassed by the fact that he had thought there would only be one route or type to take. ”I guess I have some homework to do then.” He’d figure it out and he’d let her know ahead of time so she could decide where or when they would want to eat. After all, if her reaction to the picnic basket was any reaction, she liked food. Most quidditch players did. Or at least his father always had a huge appetite. And as for discounts? Well, his eyes might have lit up at that, because as a university student, he wasn’t exactly made of money. Not that he was going to tell her that. Quidditch extraordinaire that she was? Nope….

”Ahhh….” Oh no…what had said? How was she going to react to this? ”Um…well, yeah…but also while I’m in school.” He turned as red as the strawberries in his basket. ”Because you’re looking at the Falmouth Falcon’s new mascot.” He tried to make the announcement as if he wasn’t embarrassed at all. Nope…not embarrassed…yes, he totally was.

He took a moment to run his hand through his hair, only managing to mess it up more, although he had no clue. Instead he busied himself with opening the basket and pulling out food, saving the fried chicken for last. ”I wasn’t sure what you ate so, I tried to bring a little of everything.” And despite his mom’s recommendations, he still hadn’t been 100% sure what Brits liked to eat on their picnics. His only concern was - maybe he packed too much food?

After all, if her reaction to the picnic basket was any reaction, she liked food. Most quidditch players did. Or at least his father always had a huge appetite. And as for discounts? Well, his eyes might have lit up at that, because as a university student, he wasn’t exactly made of money. Not that he was going to tell her that. Quidditch extraordinaire that she was? Nope….

”Ahhh….” Oh no…what had said? How was she going to react to this? ”Um…well, yeah…but also while I’m in school.” He turned as red as the strawberries in his basket. ”Because you’re looking at the Falmouth Falcon’s new mascot.” He tried to make the announcement as if he wasn’t embarrassed at all. Nope…not embarrassed…yes, he totally was.

He took a moment to run his hand through his hair, only managing to mess it up more, although he had no clue. Instead he busied himself with opening the basket and pulling out food, saving the fried chicken for last. ”I wasn’t sure what you ate so, I tried to bring a little of everything.” And despite his mom’s recommendations, he still hadn’t been 100% sure what Brits liked to eat on their picnics. His only concern was - maybe he packed too much food?
"Of course, this is London!" She replied with an amused smile. "Some companies have loads of different lines, some others only have about... two, I think? Oh, and I think there's one that even has a line that goes through the Tames, if you're interested in being on a boat?" She added, chuckling and nodding at his homework comment. Options galore to choose from!

Anna had to admit the fact he turned bright red before giving his answer made her extremely curious and she tilted her head once more as she looked at him. As soon as the next words came out of his mouth, she couldn't help but gasp rather LOUDLY as her jaw dropped and eyes widened. His embarrassment only made it all much funnier too! "Seriously!?!?" She exclaimed before clapping her hands and tossing her head back as she LAUGHED out loud. "This is brilliant!" And HILARIOUS, if you asked her! She looked back at him, highly amused. "WAIT, so you'll be dressed as a falcon through the entire games!?" Merlin, that would be SO FUNNY!!! "That's amazing!!" And HILARIOUS, had she said that yet?? "When do you start!?" She would DEFINITELY be in the look out for the falcon when she played the Falcons, LOL.

Okay, OKAY, so his hair was still messy. So her looking at it wouldn't fix it, and clearly he wasn't doing a very good job at fixing it himself. That put her in an awkward position, didn't it? If she let it, maybe he'd be embarrassed - and not in the funny way as it happened when he told her about being a new Quidditch mascot - when he eventually realised it, and also other people would look at him and find it odd. Again, not exactly in a good way. She couldn't do that to him, right? No, she couldn't. So Anna to the rescue excuses, excuses. Reaching up as if it was the most normal thing ever, she fixed his hair to its former state before the blanket incident. As she retracted her hand, she was pleasantly surprised at the fact she wasn't feeling awkward at all for having done that. Of course, she didn't look him in the eyes while fixing his hair because THAT would've made it very awkward for sure.

She nearly waved a dismissive hand when he said he wasn't sure what she ate, because really, she pretty much ate anything. But that was probably not something one should be proud of, necessarily, right? "Ooohh, good thinking!" Anna said anyway, because that had been an excellent idea. The more the merrier! She watched as he pulled things out of the basket, her eyes twinkling at ALL THE FOOD. Her excited smile grew more amused as he kept pulling more and more food out, and she couldn't help but to bounce a little in excitement. "Wow, this is amazing!" She was ready to TUCK IN, but ahem, she'd wait for him to go first. No need to act like an animal, eh? There was enough for for the both of them and more!

The gasp. The jaw drop. Kalen wasn’t really sure what to make of her reaction to his news. Perhaps she thought associating with the lowly man in a mascot costume was below her or put her in a compromising or embarrassing position as a quidditch player? Maybe she’d think her teammates would think it a conflict of interest? He had been given the option of the Falcons or the Tornados, but he had thought that picking her team would be a bit stalker-ish. And besides? What would happen if things didn’t work out between them?

He was pulled out of his thoughts by the laughter. Umm…..she was laughing. Aannnnnddd clapping?! If it was possible, he turned a bit redder. As much as he loved the sound of her laugh, he wasn’t sure if he believed that she really thought it was brilliant. ”Yes,” he said trying not to sound put off by the laughing. Maybe he had jut shocked her with the news. After all, he’d sorta been dared into going to the tryouts. And he hadn’t expected for a moment to actually get the job. But it paid! And paid decently for a part-time gig. ”Big ol’ bird head and wings.” He made a small flapping movement with his arms (a-la the chicken dance). ”I think the costume even has tail feathers.” When did he start? Good questions. ”Ah….next home game of the season.” He didn’t have to do too many games on the road, thankfully. That might have made his studies harder.

He didn’t even realize she was fixing his hair until she was almost done. In fact, it was probably a good thing she had reached up and done it, because the touch calmed a bit of his anxiety about the mascot thing. Instead he turned his focus to the food. ”So,” he cleared his throat and popped the top on the strawberry lemonade and poured them each a glass. ”Food… tuck in.” He popped a cherry into his mouth and a moment later spit the pit out towards the pod and it was only after he was done spitting that he realized he probably shouldn’t have done that because his mom’s voice rang in his head about how spitting was not proper (and gross).

Jessica had decided to go for a run. Living in London was nice especially since she had been accepted into the ministry! Her head was still reeeeeling from news; while she thought she was qualified, she knew it was still very difficult to get accepted! The nearly thirty-year-old was in warmer workout clothes because it WAS winter, after all, and it was a particularly brisk day, but she finished her run, grabbed a coffee, and started to walk around.

"So...apparently, the Ministry is only a six minute walk away..." she was muttering to herself, looking in the direction she'd have to go. The new chapter in her life was so...so...EXCITING.

She'd have to bring Bryant here at some point. He could totally vlog her first few days at her new job..or..would that be completely boring? Hmmm.

When it came to work outs that didn't involve weight lifting, Frankie opted to leave the building to made do in Muggle London. There was something therapeutic, in a way, about leaving the walls of Level Two, getting some fresh air in his lungs, and switching off his mind for a moment. Even in the middle of winter, he still made it a habit to endure the cold temperatures and sometimes biting wind that came with it.

Today was a day for park-bench dips and push-ups, jogging, and so on. At this point he was wrapping up a round of timed jogging. A beeping sound from his watch caused him to stop briefly and catch his breath. Taking note of the time, he then began walking in the direction the park's exit that was closest to the Ministry.

Along the way, he couldn't help but catch the gist of what a woman he wasn't terribly far from said. For a moment Frankie questioned if she was a Muggle or not, but figured there was no harm either way in giving her a friendly tip. "You can shave off a minute if you take that trail there," he stated casually, pointing at a pathway that appeared to be less trodden than the others.

Still minding her own business, Jessica squinted at the direction, then thought about how squinting would cause wrinkles, and tried to relax her face muscles. Almost thirty...you can't afford wrinkles....or you can't afford to SPEED THEM UP, Jessica she thought to herself as she patted her cheeks.

Thankfully, no one was watching -

"AH!" she jumped practically a kilometre in the air as a voice suddenly spoke. She had been so engrossed that she hadn't noticed the young man, and her hand went to her heart. "Oh Merlin - I - am not usually jumpy, but sh - " she stopped herself. "Shoot, man. Sorry." If he was talking about...the magical ministry...she decided to make sure. "How do you say the Minister's name again?" she asked with a smirk, meeting his name, as if doing her best to let him KNOW she was magical, if he was too, and whatnot.

His eyes widened when the woman screamed and jumped like she had just been spooked by a boggart. But he didn't blame her for reacting in such a way. He did sort of ... appear out of the blue. "No, I am the one who should be sorry. Didn't mean to startle you, so my bad." More often than not the Gryffindor in him came out, and then he had to give credit where it was due for his years as an Auror too.

The smirk did not go unnoticed by the twenty-eight year old. He considered her question and mannerisms for a moment. She couldn't have been talking about the Muggle Minister. Their name was not complicated or unusual in the slightest. Though he had to admit that Charles' name wasn't nearly as bizarre as some names could get in the wizarding world. Nevertheless, he was under the assumption that the woman in front of him was no Muggle.

"You mean old Hollingberry?" Frankie said nonchalantly. "Charming bloke, he is." If that was the confirmation she needed, then great. If not, well, there were several ways to clean up the situation.

"Oh it's quite all right. Some people just enjoy terrorizing others, yes?" she asked in a slightly playful tone. She didn't think he actually did that, but what was life if not playful? Who was Jessica kidding - she was never 100% serious, but she was NOT playful. Maybe she was mirroring how she had been feeling all day! Light and airy and FREE and happy. Hmm. She'd have to get a rein on that on her first day at the ministry because she wanted to be professional as ever; one of her strong suits was her professionalism.

Ah, Hollingberry it was, then! It was safe to mention magic. "I see. So you WERE talking about the Ministry, then. Good. I need all the tips I can get... I'll be starting there after holiday," she explained with a grin that showed most of her pearly-whites with an easiness to it; not too big, not too small of one. "I take it you must work there, then? Fancy meeting another employee when I'm out and about. You must think I'm a bit weird for talking to myself out here." Jessica found that talking to herself, though, helped her get into motion and get organized sometimes. Just to hear her thoughts aloud...it helped.

A chuckle escaped his mouth in response to her comment. "There is some truth in that. Depends on who you're talking about," he stated. "My son definitely fits that description. As for me, I do have to blame my training on the accidental spook that happens every now and then. Need to be stealthy and all that." There was a brief pause, which was followed up by a grin of his own. "Or perhaps it is my fault for not turning stealth mode off. Habits are hard to break I s'pose."

He refrained from going into further detail as the woman had moved on to talk about the magical British government and how she was working there once the new year rang in. "Ahh, welcome to the Ministry. What department are you going to be in?" As for where he worked, he nodded in response to her question and pulled out a badge from one of his pockets. The Auror badge said it all.

"Nah. Talking to yourself isn't weird at all. It'd be a little concerning if you didn't." He shrugged, knowing that there was nothing wrong with it. A little self-talk never harmed anyone in comparison to other situations and conditions. "I'm Frankie Paton, by the way," he mentioned, putting the badge away and holding out his hand.

"And my brother," she added. Bryant was a terrorizing human, and he knew it. "Oh, what is your training for then - " but her question was answered when he pulled his badge out. Jessica smirked. "Ah, we've got a big bad auror here. My lucky day," she teased. "Now my department seems not as interesting in comparison, but I'm still proud. Magical Cooperation...I'm a foreign relations officer. I've got a dual citizenship here...and the Philippines. Seeing as...I grew up there." So no, she did NOT go to Hogwarts, which is what many people always asked her when they first met. Oooh what house were you in - she always got asked this, but Jessica, alas, did not have an answer.

Ahem.

"So being an auror...you really must be stealthy. Gosh, were you involved in that Azkaban stuff back in September?" she asked curiously. He MUST HAVE BEEN, which only meant he might have some juuuuuicy details. "Must have been a busy time for the MLE, I'm sure." Her own mental well-being required her to not worry tooooo much about what she read in the papers, especially since her former job required to take it all with a thick skin.

"Well, Frankie, nice to meet you. Jessica Tomás," she held out her hand for him to shake. "Is Frankie short for Franklin? Or better yet, Frankfort?" she chuckled.

St. James Park. One of the only places she had found in London to be tolerable, thus far. Work was decent and she didn't hate her job, although she was unhappy to be specifically working in Quidditch where far too many names were familiar and people she had met previously.

She had grabbed a couple of fashion magazines, as she was determined to make a list of what would be the best styles for her youngest cousin. She had promised Aug she would take him shopping over the summer, and she wanted to ensure she had a good list of what styles to try first for maximum time efficiency and results. She spread her magazines out on the bench beside her, before pulling out a notebook and a pen as well in order to make notes for herself.

It had been some time since he had last visited St. James park and it all had everything to do with the lost currency from the Owl Post. The deficit in theft alone had been staggering, but when adding in the damages to his establishment along with the care and rehabilitation of the owls...his business had been teetering along the red zone for months. He of course had sympathies for the plight of Hogwarts, but parents sending letters and care packages to their children during the term was the bulk of the business...and there had been zero income in that field since December. The holidays had likewise been low income with everyone moping and staying close to home, the lack of enthusiasm for personalized stationary and Christmas card putting another dent in finances.

It was a wonder he had not pulled all of his hair out from the stress.

Thankfully, he liked his hair entirely too much to put it through such abuse.

Today, however, Zachaël had arrived at the park some time ago accompanied by Herjenmie the eagle owl who had perched himself on a stone nearby where the former Slytherin was performing a bit of yoga - sans shirt because of course. Shifting into a King Pigeon position, the shopkeeper had his eyes closed and was focused on his breathing when the eagle owl took notice of the woman arriving to the bench nearby and gave a sturdy HOOT HOOT while staring.

Rosemary wasn't sure if she liked most of the new styles they were coming out with, in fact quite a few had her visibly wrinkling her nose in distaste. Her first magazine was gone through fairly quickly before she placed it off to the side and moved on to the next. The next one was younger crowds and much more promising, and she found herself dog earing quite a few of the pages to show Auggie later to figure out his take and what he was actually interested in wearing.

She was stuck on a particular image where she couldn't actually decide if she liked what she was seeing or not, when a hoot sounded and she looked up and around. That was definitely an owl but... she thought they were nocturnal so she was very puzzled as to why she was hearing one in broad day light. And she was even more puzzled to find herself making eye contact with an owl peering at her.

She was about to make some type of exclamation aloud at her confusion, before noticing who she assumed was the owl's owner beside it. Oh well, hello. Now she realized she should perhaps be thanking the owl for drawing her attention that direction. And giving her a perfectly good excuse to talk to Mr. Owl God. She stood and moved a little closer towards the figure, pretending to be examining the owl a little more closely even if that was not what she was really admiring. "Is this little guy yours?"

As his former co-workers at the zoo could tell anyone, Zachaël had a unique perspective on fashion with an unintentionally loud flare to it. He happened to like a good print and overall bohemian chic vibe, something that Sophia often labeled as tragic before fusing over something or other and informing him how best to correct his attire to look more presentable. He supposed he should trust her judgement seeing as she was an icon of a fashion designer, plus having his best interests at heart, but his newest customer turned friend simply had different tastes than himself.

That was the story and he was sticking to it.

He hardly felt comfortable in the corporate threads so often thrust upon him.

Nothing remotely close to those nearby now, however. Not while he was at the park enjoying some yoga.

Lifting his head a bit and tossing some of those chocolate curls of his back a bit, he first looked to the charming woman and then over at Herjenmie who had decided that just then was the perfect time to prune some loose feathers. "He certainly is. Magnificent, isn't he?" the shopkeeper nodded before shifting his position to sit on his mat, coming to center and stretching his arms up a bit just to get the blood flowing again. "As long as you are gentle and slow with your hand, Herjenmie will let you pet him if you fancy. He is particularly fond of his breast feathers being stroked."

Rosemary didn't mind patterns too much, herself. In fact, her usual preference in comfortable clothing was a comfortable dress with a print. But she much preferred those prints if there was something subtle as well to offset it. Such as her dress today, a comfortable maxi with neon green chevron print on the bottom, but a solid black top so that people weren't staring at ALL pattern. What really drove her crazy was when people mixed patterns. The absolute horror.

Oh sweet merlin, that hair. This gentleman had to have the most perfect hair she had seen on anyone. And that was saying something, as she was particularly fond of her own locks when left in their natural curled state. But she would have to admit his were still much better. And he had quite the face to go with them.

She struggled to bring herself back to listening as he spoke, nodding. Yes, he certainly was magnificent. But then she remembered they were talking about the bird, so she dragged her eyes away to the animal in question. "He is beautiful. What kind of owl is he?" She assumed he was pretty, and also that there were a wide range of types of owls. She didn't really know that much about birds -- although long ago she had her own snowy owl, which had been a beautiful bird. The more she looked at this one though too, the more she noticed the certain regalness he had to him.

Wait. Did he just suggest she pet it?

The thought did... not really appeal to her. But considering she had come over closer under the guise of being interested though, might as well fully commit. "Herjenmie is quite an interesting name. Did you name him as well?" Or perhaps he was a rescue?

She slowly inched towards the bird, moving her hand out towards it at a snail's pace just so she could watch for any signs of warning.

.......then it was a good thing they had not met at a Ministry function or she may have compared him to a horror movie.

"Herjenmie here is an Eurasian eagle-owl," Zachaël replied, all eyes on how owl companion and with the sort of tone one may associate with a lounge performer. Some easy listening, so to speak. "Also known as the European eagle-owl and occasionally abbreviated to just the eagle-owl. Among the world's largest owls and most striking thanks to their pumpkin orange eyes and feathery ear tufts." To which at that precise moment he gave Herjenmie's affectionate caresses. "His wingspan is just about 1.8 meters, which is just shy of my own height." Give or take a bit seeing as Zachaël was quite the tree himself. "He came with the shop," the man replied with a shake of his head, and some more tossing of the curls, as his gaze shifted back to her to offer further explanation. "I'm the current manager of the Owl Post, Zachaël Lufkin. Enchanté." And he offered his hand to her to take.

Where there were fewer chances of being overheard. One could never be too careful....

Er, did he just do the paranoid-going-mad-thing again....?

He shook his head to himself. She was talking again, about something else this time. "Sometimes," he admitted. "I like taking walks at night, when I can't sleep." Why did he admit this? Was this something crazy people did? "I do...er, I just got a flat to myself...." Errr again should he be telling her this? "Do you still live with your brother?" Clever move, Davie. Divert the conversation back to Jessica, since she liked to talk.

He trailed after her, tucking his hands in his pockets and keeping just a few steps behind so his long legs didn't propel him ahead. Ah, uh huh. "Oh." So, this was a pity walk then, is that what she was saying? He couldn't interpret this subtext correctly, unfortunately. There weren't enough cups of coffee in the world to wake Davie's brain up and teach it how to talk to women. "Okay then, we'll....'do'....lunch."

That was the phrase, yes? He even put little air quotes around 'do' with his long fingers, returning his hands to his pockets again so he could stew properly in silence.

She held open the door for him..."After you."
The ride in the lifts had been quiet. Jessica hadn't wanted to permeate it with her worry, so she just had remained with her arms crossed, listening to the voice as she announced the levels.

And soon enough, they were taking their walk in the park. It was nice to be out in fresh air. "Lunch...should we do every day or just...a few times a week?" she asked. "I don't mind every day. It'll be nice to speak to someone outside my department," she said casually. Not that disliked anyone there but...yeah. Same old faces, right?

And now they were outside... "So what's going on?" He had said once they were outside he'd explain. "Feel any better now?" she asked as she glanced at him. The park was somewhat empty, with it being the middle of a work day, and the sun was peeking out from behind some clouds shyly. It was the time of the year where the breezes had begun to get colder, but it was not yet the harsh winter it would become. Fall was quite nice, wasn't it?
