Momiji had never been on a date prior to the one she was currently on and it made her feel nervous for some reason. Was it because it was something new? That had to be it. She tucked a lock of her hair behind her ear before a small smile fell across her lips as she pushed open the resturant door. "So..." Yeah this was probably going to be awkward. "Hows your day been?"

He followed right behind her, trying to keep things relaxed. Unlike Momiji, Dick had been on dates before, so this wasn't terribly awkward for him. "It was alright. Classes are tough - but that's about standard. Nothing I'm not used to," he finds them a table and waits for her to sit down first. "How's your day been?"

"It's been a regular day, nothing too out of the ordinary.

." she took a seat at the choosen table, her eyes falling on what she saw around her and the name the establishment was given definitely suited it well. "Wait, I don't think I asked, what year are you in now? I'm in my 6th year and it's been a little difficult." This was something she probably should of asked awhile ago, like when they first met? Yeah definitely back then.

"Now, Paul, don't touch that, that's my lucky fiver," Shay was being heard to say, to who was anyone's guess, as she swiped a five pound note off the bench to stuff it into her bra. It was muggle money but it was the only thing she had left of her mother. She'd burn it but it had stayed with her for so long, she didn't have the heart. As it turned out, Paul was a mouse that she had found scurrying across the floor and decided to make friends with. Using her wand, she levitated the mouse into the air, who was writhing around to no avail. "Oh, you are a nightmare, you are." It was ten minutes too closing and Shay didn't look anywhere near to be leaving. She might stay another hour, who knew.

Angus had been alerted that a regular customer who liked to stay after closing time didn't seem to make any intentions of moving and, with the best intentions, Angus had sent the other staff home and took on closing up duties by himself. Maybe the patron would be more likely to move along if the owner of the restaurant was hurrying her. Having walked in from the door that led to the staff room, Angus tilted his head a little. "That's not... sanitary, y'know," He said as he made his way behind the counter and opposite Shay, "The rat, that is."

"I didn't think a big bad wolf like you would care about how sanitary a rat is," Shay said with an innocent, sort of child like, voice, her accent coming out to coat her words. She was still quite proud of her accent and even though she hadn't ever been too Ireland, she adopted it in her early teens and refused to let it go. "I know you sell dragon eggs but I can't find it on the menu. Is there a secret menu that I can't find?" Shay asked, cutting straight to it, and flicked Paul over her shoulder. There was a thud as the rat hit the ground somewhere in the restaurant and Shay had little interest over where it went.

The diner was busy, filled with people—especially students—chatting and drinking sweet, syrupy milkshakes. As Abernathy stepped into The Retro, he watched a blonde waitress serving a group of friends. When she noticed him, she recognized the face identical to the owners and waved, but went on back to taking orders and serving the busy tables. He himself slipped into the one empty booth behind the group of friends, but quickly grew agitated at their loud chatter. So this was the restaurant his brother owned? Abernathy wasn't a fan, but he remained collected and waited. If anyone in the place knew Angus, they would assume Abernathy to be him. Not as a criminal that was released from Azkaban a few months back, but as the sweet and charming owner of the American diner.

If there was one part of his life that Angus could look at and declare his pride, it'd be The Retro. Though half of the work had already been done for him in regards to building it up, he felt like he had really boosted the establishment's prestige and made it an inviting place to dine. He walked into the restaurant, unaware of anything being amiss. He almost missed the confused look the blonde waitress had flashed him, only catching it because she did an obvious double take. Angus' heart threatened to drop to his stomach; her looking that confused could only mean one thing... No. Abernathy still had time to serve, he was sure of it. Brushing it off, Angus made his way to get to the staff lounge, passing the booth Abernathy was in. He glanced at the wrong time, making unmistakable eye contact with his twin brother. Wanting to keep his cool and remove himself from the situation, he beelined for the lounge, moving and sitting on one of the sofas. He knew a confrontation was imminent, he just hadn't thought it'd be so soon.

Abernathy knew Angus was in the restaurant instantly, catching the identical figure through his periphery vision, the bright summer sun creeping in from behind while the door was briefly held open. Disappearing when Angus closed it and started walking, the two looked at each other at the same second and, unlike Angus, Abernathy revealed nothing other than a happy grin. He wasn't in any sort of negative mood, feeling joyful even. It was finally his welcome home reunion, and that meant it was time to party. The grin remained plastered on his face as he nodded at different strangers in the diner, stepping out from the booth and strolling down to where his brother now sat. "I was hoping for at least a welcome home from my favorite brother" he exclaimed enthusiastically, flopping down on the unbearably red sofa. "Or a cake would of been nice. You know? The ones where you can buy at the store and get a custom message on it, perhaps. 'Welcome home from prison, Abernathy' might of been a bit much, but a simple 'Welcome back!' or 'I'm super sorry!' would of done!"

Perhaps Angus' brain was working overtime to convince him that Abernathy wouldn't be coming to talk to him and that it had all been an apparition; a mental test to see what he'd do when the day finally came. With the staff lounge doors opening not soon after and the unmistakable sight of his brother plopping down opposite him, Angus knew that his brain wasn't going to deceive him that easily. "I'm the only brother you have left," Angus said, voice monotone as his gaze finally looked up and fixated on his twin. He felt nervous that there didn't seem to be any visible or audible indication of anger or fury. His brother looking excited did little to calm him down. "I thought you had more time to serve," He said, voice calm and even, "You don't send letters anymore so I never knew when you were due free. Besides, the Aurors told me after your trial that it'd be upwards of twenty years; not five."

Piper had done nothing ever since she graduated. Most head students had some idea of what they wanted to do witth their future. Piper really did not. She had been doing odd jobs here and there and just messing around with friends. Also celebrating the new political era. She'd volunteered as much as she could. Giving out spare rooms in her family house (that only she lived in) to half breeds in need, for example. Among other things. One thing she did know was-that she wanted to stay in contact with everyone from Hogwarts. Including Apollo. "Who would you vote for?" She asked, obviously referring to the upcoming election. Politics was always going to be on the table with Piper.

Apollo was grateful that even after she had graduated, that Piper still wanted to maintain a friendship with him. Truthfully, he didn't have many friends outside of his family. So Piper graduating really was a hit below the belt for Apollo and it made him worried, to say the least, for the new school year. Luckily everything was fine thus far, but there was still many more weeks to go. Mind elsewhere, he was snapped back to reality when Piper asked about politics. "Honestly, I don't know. I haven't really been keeping up with the elections as much as I should have to be honest..."

If Piper realised Apollo's lack of friends, she would have been outraged. Maybe even go back too Hogwarts just to file a formal complaint. However, maybe for the best, she didn't realise and stayed ignorant of her friend's situation. Piper was frowning at him currently, though, before pushing her teacup to the side. Only Piper managed to find tea in an American style cafe. "Okay so we have four candidates. If you ask me, the two heavy weights are Julius Tyrell and Hudson Radley-Abbott. You should know who Tyrrell is-he was minister before Fitzgerald and Radley-Abbott is currently head of education. I met him a few times as head girl when he visited Hogwarts, maybe you saw him in a crowd? He's really hard too miss. His arms are the-" Piper stopped herself there, "-doesn't matter, besides the point. Radley-Abbott's position under Fitzgerald might slow him down, as well as maybe Tyrrell's stepping down to let Fitzgerald in. But really, the latter could work for everyone but Radley-Abbott. The other two candidates are Morrígan Talhaoui and Sterling Boone. Talhaoui once ran previously, maybe you've heard of her, and Boone use to work in the ministry before Fitzgerald. Both practically disappeared under Fitzgerald's era. They're all advocating for reconciliation after Fitzgerald, some are more...passionate than the others. But that's who we have now." All of this was said in one breath and she had to stop because otherwise she'd pass out from lack of oxygen.

Apollo listened intently, willing to learn more as he had been vastly in the dark for most of this election. Granted he didn't mind it, school kept him so busy that he hadn't had time to check up on the candidates really. Thankfully that's what Piper was for. "I remember Tyrrell, how could I not when he was the last good minister we had?" Apollo responded before taking a sip of his drink. "Out of the other three though, the only one I've heard of is Radley-Abbott. I think I've seen him around the school once or twice? I don't know if I was old enough to really be paying attention to politics when Talhaoui and Boone were in the fold..."

"I wasn't even in the country when they were. I had to research both Talhaoui andd Boone. Boone was a lot more...harder to find anything on than the other three," Piper confessed. She had a lot of opinions and a lot of questions-but when was that something new? "What will be their downfalls is what they did during Fitzgerald. Tyrrell could be argued that he left his people in the time of need. Boone and Talhaoui both went underground, deserting us essentially. Radley-Abbott...well, he's complex. He was hired by Fitzgerald, worked for him, but was also involved in the shadow ministry and did try to combat Fitzgerald as best he could. So whether that's a bad thing or a good thing I'm not sure. I think I'd vote for him on that regard. Just for the fact that at least he tried, you know? At least he stayed around. Didn't run moment it became difficult. However, the debate is still too happen so the others might have impressive policies and ideas. It could change everything." Piper took a sip of her tea, kind of lost in thought now.

It was fascinating really, listening to the way Piper talked about the ministry and politics in general. She was so invested in them that you'd think she herself was a politician. "Just from what you've explained thus far I think my vote would either go to Tyrrell or Radley-Abbott. Granted they all seem to have some perks, I just feel like that would be the best path to take as a voter right now." He responded before getting a thought. "You know, you should really consider politics as a career. I know you've been trying to think of something, and you seem so passionate about it. I'm sure it would be a good fit for you."

Piper went silent. Very silent as she registered what Apollo suggested. The thought hadn't even occurred too her. But Apollo was right-it'd work for her. "I feel like...I feel like I'm too nice for the ministry," Piper said, "that people enter it with good intentions and they just...I don't know, get caught up in some toxic environment. Maybe I've just lost faith in it all. I still like to be hopeful with the new candidates but...I don't know. I feel like everyone would try take advantage of me there."

Maybe Piper was right, she was really nice and people like her do tend to be taken advantage of. But there was no denying she would be a perfect fit for it. "Maybe you're right about that, but I still think it's worth a shot. I mean look at Bailey Jeon, I'd describe him as just as nice as you are and if I remember right... He was never taken advantage of or caught up in the toxicity. Sure there was the whole thing of being Fitzgerald's advisor, but from what I heard he was blackmailed into staying on. It was either that or the precinct. Now that I think of it that sounds exactly like being taken advantage of... Maybe I'm not doing a very good job of selling this, but you know what I mean." He was rambling, and when he rambled that was a sign that his ADHD was firing up. In an attempt to distract himself, he started fidgeting with the drawstrings on his sweater.

Piper suspected Apollo was ADHD-not that she ever asked because it wasn't her business. Nor did it really take anything away from Piper's opinion and love for Apollo. Nor did she mind if he rambled-she did it enough herself so she listened as he jumped from word to word. "I'd argue they were all blackmailed. Really, if they left he just replaced them with someone far worse. It's a complicated situation. One I don't think there's really a good answer for. To stay or to leave...I don't know what I would have done," Piper confessed. That's what was holding her back, if she were honest. That fear of being powerless against something like the past few years. "But...you're right. They say Bailey Jeon is a really good person. If there was a good role model to have, he'd be mine. I think you have a point. I...I'll think about it. See what my options are. Who knows, maybe I'll be your minister for magic soon enough."

Apollo was thankful Piper never questioned his having ADHD, it was somewhat of a touchy subject given his past experiences when people would find out about it. Granted he wasn't the best at hiding it, he really did try it just wasn't successful unfortunately. His parents were still amazed to this day he was able to pull enough focus to get good grades, if only they knew the struggle he had to go through to keep himself attentive. However, Apollo listened intently as Piper spoke. Distracting himself with her words and really focusing in on what she was saying. "I would hazard a guess that you're right, I'm sure Bailey wasn't the only one." He'd pause for a second, listening more as Piper continued. "I'm happy to hear you'd consider it, I think you'd be a good minister one day. And as far as Bailey Jeon goes, I mean he's a good role model to have, especially when it comes to the ministry. After all, he was the first half-breed minister and the first Asian minister. That's got to be a glimmer of hope for people like us, especially after Fitzgerald..."

"They say he was the beginning of the whole...prejudice resurfacing. But I don't know. I like to think he wasn't. He just flushed them out, I suppose. It's all very exciting, though! A new start," Piper said with a beam, "but how about you? How's Hogwarts?" In truth, Piper was a little bit worried about him. Not that she knew the extent of anything. But she worried anyway. Piper was a worrier.

"I think that's a fair way to look at it, the prejudice wasn't resurfaced those who were prejudice just got flushed out and therefore it seemed like it was a new thing. But it was for the best, now everyone can get passed it with like you said, a new start." He paused for a second, "Hogwarts is Hogwarts, nothing new really. I don't really talk to many people now that you're gone though, just Adonis and Aphrodite really... Well, and someone else but I don't know what's happening there..."

Piper frowned, just a little bit, but she knew having a large friendship group wasn't for everyone. Not that she had a large one herself-she didn't. Really, her friendship group consisted of Heloise, Tai and Apollo. Well, maybe not Tai considering he's in Azkaban. But she still counted him. However, the last part piqued her attention and she tilted her head. "As in...potential boyfriend sort of happening? Do you have a crush on someone?" Was she jumping too conclusions? Definitely. But it was Piper and she was an absolute romantic.

Apollo was able to pick up quickly on Piper's shift in thought when he mentioned the part about Nemo. Immediately he felt his cheeks get hot and he started to fidget with the drawstrings of his sweater again. "I wouldn't say it's a crush or anything... Just a boy... Don't tell anyone please, Adonis would tell my parents and they'd kill me if they found out I was talking to someone."

Piper hadn't the best track record with keeping secrets but she had learnt her lesson. "I won't! I promise!" Piper said, her back straightening, obviously taking this promise very seriously. She did. Of course, Piper was unaware about Adonis's...extra curricular activities and didn't know him enough to realise he'd be a hypocrite if he told on Apollo. "So what's he like? I want to know everything."

"Thanks, I appreciate it." He responded. Sure, Adonis was a lot more wild than he was. In fact a lot was an understatement, it was hard to believe they were even siblings given how different they were from one another. Part of him also knew Adonis wouldn't actually tell on him, he was more so worried that the other would want to try and help and Apollo wasn't sure he wanted that kind of help. "His name is Nemo and he's a lot like me... Really nice and caring, but we met at the bubble tea place in Lincliff..."

"Nemo," Piper echoed, rolling the name around her mouth, "I love that name. It's so cute." Nemo Liu. It had a nice ring to it. Of course, Piper was jumping maybe ten years into the future but could you blame her? "Oh, I've been there a few times. You know, everyone I talk to always has these cute meetings with their...you know, partner...at all these random stores. Every time I walk into one now, I keep on thinking if I'm I going to meet my knight in shining armour today and if my shirt was really the best option to wear."

"I know right, his name is absolutely adorable." Just talking about Nemo was evidently making Apollo giddy, he was more fidgety now but with a purpose as he struggled to contain his excitement. "One day you'll definitely have that kind of moment, but you can't expect or wait for it. It kind of just... happens out of nowhere."

"I think that's going to be me as a parent. Maybe I'll name my kid Dory, though, or maybe Marlin. Or maybe I'll name my kid....oh, what about Mulan? I love Mulan," Piper said, running her head through her favourite disney movies. But Piper could see it written all over Apollo and his excitement was infectious and Piper almost wanted to bounce in her seat as well. "Do you think he's into you?"

"Mulan is such a good name, especially for someone who's powerful and strong. But don't take Dory, I want to tease Nemo with the name!"

Piper's nose scrunched up at the idea. "You'll have to have a little mermaid wedding, for sure. And why not? I know how nerve wracking it is but there's no time like the present and if he says no, then he's missing out," she said, very matter-of-factly, with a small nod to back herself up.
