The school year had just finished, and Tati was due to return to the US in a few days. In the meantime though, she was to stay in Lincliff City until her parents could come pick her up, and was booked a room at the Bishop Hotel, which honestly, was filled with too much shopping bags at the point. Well, Tati did quite well in her O.W.L.s, and so she thought it was just appropriate to treat herself. Today, she decided to get breakfast at one of the popular cafes in the city, Espresso Yourself, before she did some more shopping. Seating herself in one of the outdoor tables, Tati took a menu in her hand and thought about what to order.

The only act of rebellion Kealia could ever consider taking is coming to Espresso Yourself. Where her parents saw a bold support for the LGBT movement, Kealia only saw a colorful, cheerful place to enjoy a rare good cup of coffee. She had become close enough to the owner to understand that while yes, this café went against one of her parents' moral pillars, it was also a safe haven from everyone she knew. Kealia Valleas-Rosier; why would she be here? Her amusement is palpable as she surveys the scenery across the café, observing the way Elliott, bless his soul, is scouring the square for her. She smirks to herself as she takes a small sip of her coffee.

She was helping herself to a spoonful of blueberry cheesecake when she took notice of a girl sitting not far from where she was. Blonde hair, pretty, good fashion sense — Tati recognized her immediately. They were in the same year after all, her and Kealia Valleas-Rosier. Too bad they weren't friends though, because they haven't interacted that much, they just knew of each other. As Tati sipped from her cup of hot macchiato though, she pondered whether that could change anytime soon. They had potential to be friends, she thought.

Eventually, she becomes bored, tired of watching her older brother dumbly trying hunt her down. She ends up pulling her phone out to peruse Witchagram, where she stumbles across the page of the guy she'd ran into at The Hmm Café the last time she was there. Adam Grimsditch. He had a surprisingly good few pictures compared to most guys around her age, and - well, he certainly knew how to catch a girl's eye. Kealia takes another thimbleful of her drink between pictures, but pauses when she feels a pair of eyes on her. She lifts her head, taking a swiping look around her and quickly spotting Tatiana. She raises a perfectly sculpted eyebrow. It takes her a moment, but before long, she realizes who it is. Tatiana Kingston. Gorgeous, smart, impressionable fashion - the kind of girl her parents would love for her to befriend. Someone worthy of the Valleas-Rosier seal of approval. She waits silently, patiently, to see what the girl has to say, if anything.

Tati isn't usually the one to initiate friendships — most of the time, people flock to her, drawn by her charm, and she befriends those she knows she'll get along with. In this case though, she felt quite the opposite. Kealia has always been interesting to her, and it's a shame that until this point in their magical education (five going on six years at Hogwarts), they haven't said a word to each other past the usual greetings and smiles. She wants to change that, though, and she thinks this is the perfect opportunity. Dropping her mug on the table, Tatiana rose from her seat and strode gracefully towards the other girl's table. With a smile on her face, she says, "Hi Kealia, fancy seeing you here. Can I sit with you?" She asked, pointing at one of the empty chairs.

Khluen and Malcolm

Malcolm was bored. His friends had gone off to their own respective activities and Malcolm? He was left alone, but considering the amount of friends he had he probably was bored all the time. Feeling in the mood for a milkshake, he was now at one of the tables sipping on his milkshake. He had to admit, the colourful tables and chairs hurt his eyes, so he takes out his phone and plays one of those lame games he's downloaded to kill his boredom.

Today was another day of going out and about. Today is a lucky one, too, since he was able to have Anthy with him today. Unfortunately, she had to leave a few minutes ago because her manager called her. Life was hectic as a singer, huh? No matter, Khluen just needs to buy Anthy her favourite foodstuffs for when she gets home. He was about to head to a nearby bakery when his eyes caught sight of this really bright and rainbow-y establishment and was immediately interested. In no time Khluen was holding a plate of chocolate cake and a cup of cafe latte and was currently hunting for an empty table. Spotting someone sitting alone amongst all the filled tables, Khluen quickly approached them. "Hi there! Would you mind me sitting with you? Everywhere else is full..."

Malcolm looked up from his phone, where he was now watching Flootube videos with the auto-generated subtitles since he didn't bring earphones. He was tempted to answer "no" but since he didn't have the heart too, he nodded. "No, not at all." I'm going to go after I finish this milkshake, anyway. He was too tired/bored to make his tone sound more cheerful.

"Cool, thanks~" Khluen settles down on the empty chair and immediately digs into his chocolate cake. A happy, satisfied little hum escapes from his mouth as he savours the taste of the chocolate cake. He just can't imagine a life without chocolate cake. He'd probably perish. Once he was satisfied, Khluen stops for a while to focus on his tablemate. "My name's Khluen, by the way, nice to meet you!"

"I'm Malcolm. Nice to meet you too!" Malcolm finally puts more energy into his sentence, after realising the reason of his boredom is because he's got no friends to hang around with, and it wouldn't hurt to make another one. Besides, this way of extinguishing his boredom is much more better than doing whatever he was doing on his phone. Maybe he'll stay a little bit longer after he's finished his milkshake. Maybe.

"Ohh Malcolm is a cute name~" He notes with a grin. Khluen gets a few more bites of his cake and a heavenly sip of his cafe latte before he talks again. "This is such a cute establishment though. I'm loving the sense of pride and openness it has and the food is really great, don'tcha think?"

"Thank you!" Malcolm lets a smile overtake his features. "The food is good, but the color hurts my eyes a bit. I'm not used to such colorful places. I'm not against pride or anything, I just don't get out often and normally my dorm isn't this colorful." Malcolm proceeds to talk. "Are you from Hogwarts too?"

"The bright splashes of colour does help in catching the attention of potential customers though, so kudos to the owner." Oh my God he might finish this cafe latte in one go because it's so good. "Yep~ Seventh year Slytherin! How about you?"

In every single place he goes to, Malcolm still couldn't find another Gryffindor. Maybe there are less Gryffindors in Hogwarts than he thought?? Or maybe Gryffindors just don't come to him?? Or maybe he's missing them all? For all he knows that kid who ran past him on the street on his way here may have been one. Or maybe he's just not paying attention to what house everyone is in. Or, mayhaps, he's color blind!! After all the students' robes have colors of their house on them and if Malcolm's not spotting them he probably really is color blind!! The more you know. "Same year, Gryffindor." But if he really was color blind he wouldn't see all these colorful chairs and tables. Hm.

Basti and Bri

Today's a rest day for her, but not for her partners nor for Rain. She feels kinda down. She wanted to spend some quality time with the loves of her life but looks like life doesn't want for it to happen. Bri is sitting alone in an isolated corner, nibbling quietly on her chocolate cake and occassionally sipping on her caramel macchiato. Her drink was almost finished and Bri was debating on getting some mango milkshake too. She swears she can hear the scandalised gasp of her manager. Too bad.

Bastian avoids being in public like the plague. It's been awhile since he's come back and he still isn't used to being out and about. Not to mention that he feels ashamed of all the scars that he has. Most of the facial ones have gone away completely thanks to magical medicine, but a few stray ones peek out uncomfortably from his collar. His therapist has encouraged him to get out, but she never said anything about socializing. So Basti finds himself going towards the same isolated corner as Bri, a giant piece of chocolate cake to accompany him.

Bri's a little too distracted with her sad cake eating fest to notice the newcomer in her area. Her hand that wasn't occupied with a fork is helping her scroll through her phone, switching back and forth between Witchagram and Flootube. Faintly she considers opening her own channel separate from her official one. Bri's been getting into 3D modelling and animation lately and she can't really bombard her partners nor Rain with her bs 24/7 for validation... Maybe a channel can help.

Basti seems to realize too late that his hopes for sticking himself in isolation were too high. His feet shuffle to a stop, and he's left awkwardly standing as he looks at Bri in his usual spot. He wants to turn back, to be alone somewhere else. Had it been pre-kidnapping, certainly he would've said that the table had already been reserved. He would've offered a charming apologetic smile, and asked her to move. Right now, he's not in the mood for the relatively busy atmosphere the main area of this shop was starting to get. So it goes, then. Shuffling awkwardly over to the side of the table, he mentally prepares himself to ask to sit down. His eyes are more focused on the floor that properly looking at Bri. Meekly, he asks, "Do you mind if I sit here? It's my favorite spot to be. I won't be a bother or anything." His grip tightens on his plate of chocolate cake, and Basti can feel his therapist nodding approvingly somewhere.

She's just halfway through finishing the caption of her latest Witchagram post (a picture of a postcard her ate Ani sent her yesterday) when her brain registers Basti's presence in her area. Bri looks up from her phone to face the new person directly. He's staring down the floor like, in Bri's perspective, it offended him and his entire lineage and dude, honestly, mood. Her position lets her get a better view of his face compared to if she was standing up and honestly, honestly she's floored by his visuals even from this kind of awkward angle. And so, like the panromantic hot mess she is, the first thing out of her mouth was "Wow daddy." Shame and mortification fill her entire headspace soon after and she resists the urge to just yeet because wow that was such a gago move end her please.

Basti had been expecting awkward smiles and kind words to tell him to go away. His feet, after all, had already been pointing outwards in order to get ready to go. What he was not expecting was well, that. He'd been forcibly stripped of all his pride, and so the cogs in his brain were struggling to find a way to react. All Basti thought of was the way that his scars are itching and visible from his collar and hands to the way he's wearing sleeves in summer to hide the other other ones. He's sure he has some stray ones on his face too. Where in the world is his daddiness? Should he be pleased at being called as such in his current state? He guesses that he'll take it. "Ah, thank you? I don't agree but I'm really flattered that you think of me in such a way." He manages a smile, at least. Standing there, Basti shifts from one foot to the others, unsure of whether he should sit down or not. "Um, so you do mind if I sit here?"

Bri was hoping that the male didn't hear her words but apparently, today is not her day. Oh my God someone end me right now. She didn't even answer the man's question what even is she. "Oh! Um I- uh- don't mind. Let me just.." Coughing awkwardly, Bri shuffles her belongings to make room for her new companion even though there's already enough room for her to not do that. It's a little absurd that the other dude seems to be unaware of his own A+ visuals but Bri's been there. Still there, to be honest. But of course she has this nagging instinct to validate and give people the praise they deserve from being around people who aren't aware of their own beauty. So she swallows the last of her shame and hopes that her voice wasn't too quiet nor squeaky, "I dunno, you have g- godly proportions so you'd look great in every angle." And lastly, as if trying to save face, "I- I'm sorry if I made you, uhh, really uncomfortable earlier- and right now. I'll just m- mind my own business now. C- Carry on." Bri ducks down to focus on her phone, hiding her face behind her hair and opening up her chat with Rain so she can Scream In Peace.

Carefully, Basti sets down his plate on the table. At the same time, soft laugh is making its way out from his mouth. There's no animosity whatsoever from the veteran actor. "No, it's quite alright." Sitting down, Basti makes sure to give Bri as much space as possible. He already feels a bit guilty that he's intruding into her space. But at the same time, he's quite happy to be sitting with her. Strange as it is to be called kinky terms in public, he hasn't felt this pretty since before the incident. Setting his phone on the table, he sneaks a glance of his reflection off of the phone screen. No facial scars did lead to a somewhat better physical appearance. "No, it's totally okay. You can uhhh keep on bothering me if you wish. Wouldn't want Daddy to not be occupied." He takes a bite out of his chocolate cake, savoring in the rich flavor.

Bri breathes out a little sigh of relief. Thank God she wasn't viewed by him as a creep or something. She still keeps her head down, unable to meet the eyes of her new table-mate. Bri probably won't breathe a word of this encounter to any of her partners because they'd never let her live it down. "Oof no I don't wanna be a bother." His next words, however, made her sputter. "Wh- Wha- Oh my G- God no that was me and- and my unf- unfiltered mouth please don't--" Bri lets out an embarrassed groan and hides her face in her hand. "Noooo I'm never going out in public again I'll become a hikikomori and never see the light of day again ever."

Basti is truthfully intrigued by her, and he can't deny that it feels nice to be wanted. Maybe he was being objectified a bit, but Bri was a breath of fresh air that he didn't know that he needed til now. He puts down his fork, setting aside the chocolate cake in order to make room for more conversation. Basti had come into this shop in order to wallow in self-hatred and self-pity, but now he couldn't stop smiling. "You could never be a bother, especially if you keep on complimenting me." Somewhere in the back of his brain, the new part of him acknowledges that his words were something akin to words that his former self would've uttered. He starts laughing at her reaction, genuinely pleased by what his comment has set off. "No, it's okay. It's on me for immediately teasing you. Sorry."

Bri slowly removes her hands from her face, internally grateful that Basti doesn't seem to view her as a creep or something. She still wasn't meeting his eyes though and kept poking at her own chocolate cake as a distraction. Bri isn't gonna lie though, Basti's presence lifted her spirits up despite the... weird first interaction and her subsequently making an entire fool of herself damnit. "Well you're really pretty though... It'd be a sin not to acknowledge it though I would've preferred to acknowledge it in a less... embarrassing way." She mutters with a slight pout. "At least you don't find me creepy," She pauses, mulling over her words. "Unless...?"

Chloe was sitting at one of the outside tables, twirling her straw through a glass of lemonade. She was in a bitter mood and she wasn't sure why. Maybe because this was the first time she was meant to be seeing Milo in nearly a month. Of course, it was neither of their specific faults. Chloe had been busy with applying to be an auror and Milo was busy with seventh year. But this was their third attempt at meeting with previous attempts having been cancelled. Looking at her phone, she was honestly waiting for Milo to text saying he can't make it. Hopefully he would text. God–why were relationships always such a pain in her ass?

Milo unfortunately slept through his alarm and now he was running late. To top things off, his cellphone fell into the toilet in his haste to get ready, effectively breaking it. He had now way to contact Chloe, who for sure was already fuming, or at least, irritated at the situation. It's not like their relationship was going well, too. Oh man, when will I catch a break? Milo asked himself as he sped through the streets of Lincliff.

Chloe sent another text but, like all the times before, was left on delivered. Sighing to herself, she stared down into her empty coffee mug. Maybe she should go and buy another one? Count how late he was through the amount of coffee she drank. He better not ghost her. Though, Chloe wasn't sure what would be hurt more. Her feelings or her pride.
