Flourish and Blotts

Flourish and Botts

You stumble through the door, being pushed in by the tidal wave of people outside. The towering piles of books are astounding. The wood floor is worn and scrapes under your heels. Many a book teeters precariously atop a tower, high in the air above. You see an old man sitting at a high desk.

it's complicated

Yes, he's in here scouring the books for the curse. The lack of proper wizarding internet deeper than Witchagram and the odd unfinished encyclopedia means that he's relegated to print, and there aren't that many magical libraries and bookstores in this country that he can find. It's busy in here, especially with all the kids stocking up for summer before the prices go up, and extremely disorientating when he doesn't hear someone ask to squeeze by, or turns around and bumps into another person; still, he's nothing if not stubborn. And he's very adept at stealing books so he doesn't have to pay.

The smell of a bookstore didn't replicate the strong aroma that came from dessert bakeries or florist shops, but a person could still distinguish the distinct scent if they paid close enough attention. Vince observed this fact as he stepped into the Flourish and Blotts for the first time in what seemed like forever. Memories flooded back to him of every year he had to buy old textbooks before school started up again. The crowded picture in his head did not match his current visual of the store, looking over to the cashier and two other customers; otherwise it was empty and silent. Walking slow and steadily, he let himself take his time before reaching the bottom of the stairway. He winced at the first creak that followed his first step up, but ignored the rest when realizing no one else in the shop was paying any mind. In all honesty, Vince didn't have a clue what book he'd like to read, but he was predetermined to buy one before leaving. He hadn't found a good read in quite some time.

Eden loved bookstores. It wasn't about the aesthetic or the silence, but rather the vastness of knowledge just within her reach. She loved how they carried hidden mysteries and thrilling stories, tales of a forgotten past and whispers of a promised future. Books were an echo of the past hidden in a warning for the future, and there was something about it that was absolutely beautiful to her. She spent much of her time in different bookstores and libraries perusing what they had, but by far her favorite was Flourish and Blotts. It wasn't just new books, but old ones that had been read and enjoyed so many times they were splitting apart bit by bit. They had character, if you asked her. Today, she found herself with more free time than she'd hoped for, and had ultimately found her way there to peruse the shelves while she waited for the clock to strike five; her pre-determined time for dinner with Flo. She missed her sister, too; it's like they barely saw each other anymore.

Vince's initial thoughts were that finding the perfect book would be like finding a needle in a haystack, but he withdrew himself from the idea moments later. In reality, multiple—or all—of the printed works on the shelves he glimpsed over could absolutely be the perfect book. And he wouldn't know if the one that fell into his hands was it until he read it from cover to end. It was more so like taking a risk. The first one that Vince decided to steal from its tight space was bright red with a poetic-sounding name, in which he opened it up to be returned with the escape of a few trapped dust particles. The synopsis was intriguing; it was detailed, but Vince couldn't make out if it was a piece of wizard or muggle literature. It didn't exactly matter either way, but sometimes there were tell tale signs. The book wasn't what he wanted to dive into—at least for that day—so he placed it back into the empty space it had left moments ago. He was completely unaware of Eden's presence, which was obvious as his state couldn't be any calmer at the moment.

Eden is the first to notice Vince, and it's only because she spots some movement from the corner of her eye and turns her head to look at the source, as any sane person would. At first, she doesn't know how to react. Is she supposed to say something? Catch his attention? Is she supposed to pretend she didn't see him? For Merlin's sake, she didn't even know he was out of Azkaban. Did Julian?! As she processes what her eyes are seeing, she just stares at him, dumbfounded, unable to formulate any words or even coherent thoughts. Her heart is racing a mile a minute, and it actually hurts. She feels like she can't breathe or move as a flurry of memories, mostly from her youth, cross her mind. What to do, what to do, what to do?!

Vince, for a moment at least, was oblivious of Eden stunned nearby. He slid out another book, a blue one, opening it up to read the synopsis once more. The feeling of being watched caught up a few seconds later, choosing to trust his instincts to turn around. So there she was, Eden Lestrange, and Vince shared a dumbfounded expression. The nerves inside of him kicked into action. He felt as if his stomach had dropped to the floor. The air could of been cut with a knife, but Vince knew they couldn't let this silence go on forever. "Eden," he greeted, putting on a fake kind smile. "Long time no see."

This is it. This is the day Eden Lestrange embarrasses herself over a man. Not that she hasn't before, but - well, you understand, don't you? It's not every day you encounter your first love after years of thinking him to be dead. "Vinny," she mumbles, unable to refer to him by anything other than her once affectionate nickname for him. Her voice is quiet and sounds resoundingly astonished, like she doesn't believe what she's seeing. "Hi."

Vince felt like he was being mocked. Not by Eden, no, but by the universe or whoever had the universe's wheel. "I just got back into London," he admitted, scratching the back of his neck. Hopefully it was a good enough explanation on why he hadn't gotten in touch, or why he hadn't given her a call, or even why he hadn't sent an owl at all. Truth was Vince had chickened himself out of doing any of it. He told himself she had moved on and they'd likely never see each other again. Ha, what luck he had. "How are you?"

When Eden finds her voice again for anything that isn't monosyllabic, she swallows thickly and decides to go for it. "Welcome back," she says, with a strained smile. She doesn't know what else to say. "I'm..." Confused? Angry? Hurt? Frustrated? Relieved? "...okay. And you?"

"I'm good, thank you," he responded, forcing a grin in return. Their words reminded Vince of a conversation between two strangers. It reminded him of the one he had with a cashier the other day, using the words 'okay' and 'good' even if they weren't the truth to prevent further introductory to conversation. Eden and Vince were not strangers—far from that in fact—so saying goodbye and carrying on wasn't an option. Deep down, Vince also didn't want to go that route. "Are you looking for a book or browsing?" He avoided wincing after, but it was tempting when thinking of his stupid question. He didn't know how else to carry on—where are you working? Are you married now? Do you have kids?

Eden feels similarly to Vince, even if she doesn't have the courage to admit it both to him and herself. So when he pursues a conversation, however irrelevant the subject it, she has to fight looking so relieved. "Browsing," she answers. "It's... been a while since I came here last. I wanted to see what they had. You?"

"Cool, cool," he said, nodding. "Same. Me too." His eyes traveled down to his hands, remembering the blue novel in his grasp. "I've been dying for a good book for a while now." To Vince's dismay, Azkaban hadn't had its own personal library. He also came to learn how much he missed the paragraphs of text when all of it became out of his reach. "So maybe I'll buy this one—" he held the book up for Eden to see. "—or maybe not. Have any good recommendations?"
