Bittersweet


Bittersweet Emporium is a gourmet chocolate shop located in Diagon Alley, just past Gringott's Bank and is currently the newest shop on the block. Built to have a friendly and calm atmosphere, soft classical music plays in the back and warm lights show off the high quality chocolate products that are all hand-made in store. The shop was created by Aikaterine Vassalos and displays her heart and soul and of course, her love for chocolate.

Bittersweet Emporium is currently looking for chocolatiers, whether full time, seasonal or part time employee.

She was at one of the counters, on her toes to try and get a good view of the display. It didn't help that she was only 5 foot and she hoped she'd have a growth spurt some time soon. Her mother was currently working and Cleo was exploring diagon alley. Having a level of independence, perhaps greater than an eleven year old should have, she wasn't bothered about being by herself or the crowds. She'd highlighted her map of the most effective ways to move through the place already and how to get back home, so she wasn't worried about getting lost. She'd moved through most stores already, having bought her textbooks (she had one in her small backpack for some reading when she was having lunch), her wand and her robes and now she was moving through the more recreational stores, such as the chocolate shop. Though she never had much of a sweet tooth, or an appetite (which was obvious considering how thin she was), she couldn't resist at least trying a little bit of the delicacies inside.

Having gotten the large bulk of her stuff and dropping it off at her parents within the Leaky Cauldron, Delaney had permission to go out and get some wizarding confectionery of her choice. She had planned to go and buy some exciting sweets from one of the many shops on Diagon Alley but, after some consideration and mental debate, she decided on some plain chocolate. It wasn't the most exciting thing, given the fact she was new to the wizarding world, but she'd rather not have something go to waste. Upon entering the store, she walked up to beside Cleo to get a better look herself. Being only 4'11, she had even greater difficulty than Cleo and resorted to bouncing slightly to try and see better.

"You'd think they'd have made it more accessible," she said with a sigh as she saw Delaney bouncing, "I could give you a boost?" Delaney didn't look that heavy. "Trying to see if they have anything caramel related but the only place I haven't checked out is up there."

At first Delaney wasn't sure that Cleo was talking to her but the glance over at her confirmed it and, she being the social butterfly that she was, meant she could only nod in despair. "It's as if it's not made for those who aren't tall," she said, her own sigh sounding out. Her gaze shifted from Cleo to the counter, eyebrows raising, "Do you not think that they could ask us to leave if you boost me?"

Connor and Victoria

Connor entered the Bittersweet Emporium, wondering if it was even worth it to try and get anything else food related especially since he had just had three scoops of ice cream. But with Connor and his desire to eat sweets, why the heck would he stay away from a chocolate factory? He wondered how much money he had left, hopefully he could buy something to last long enough until the train ride to Hogwarts, but he doubted that with both him and his aunt in the house.

Victoria had just been to Gringotts Bank with her father Hayden, who'd left her to shop for herself. After buying all her vital equipment for next school year, she decided to get some confectioneries, and stepped into the chocolate emporium, as everybody likes chocolate. She looked through her bag for the knuts,sickles and galleons she'd got from the family vault. Though she knew of her father's side of the families status, she was surprised by the security of the vault. While digging in her bag to get the coins out, she happened to bump into someone in front of her, and fell backwards. "Woah!" She yelled as she went onto her back on the floor.

He felt someone walked to him and stumbled forward, before catching himself mid-step and turning around just in time to see Victoria fall on the floor. He smiled sheepishly and bent down, holding out a hand. "Sorry, that was probably my fault," he said. "Need a hand?"

Victoria glanced up at the boy in front of her and took his hand, albeit rather embarrassed. "No, I should've looked where I was going, but thanks for the help." She gave a slight smile. For once she hadn't gone on the defensive when talking to someone, though she was still a bit wary of him, even though he clearly just wanted to help.

"You're welcome," he beamed, pulling her up. "You must of been ogling at the chocolate right? It's looks so delicious," he said, turning around. "I wonder if I have any money left to buy some."

Victoria gave a slight smile before retorting back at him. "I don't ogle at things." She took her hand out of his, and continued browsing the chocolate on the walls by her. "And if you're so concerned about money, why don't you go to Gringotts to grab more?" She added. She had no clue where her sudden mood swing had come from, but internally, she knew it was because she wasn't open to sharing privacy, even if it was something ridiculously small as 'What are ya looking at?' .

He blinked, slightly put off by the mood swing but shook it off. "Because not everyone has a fund of money just sitting in a bank," he explained. "I had to transfer currency, and even then, I only had enough for my supplies and maybe some extra food."

Victoria rolled her eyes. "Then save your money if you don't have enough to get chocolate." She looked at a rather nice looking milk chocolate bar on the shelf and took it down. She thought for a few moments, before glancing back. "Never did catch your name anyway." She remarked, before continuing "I'm Victoria. Victoria Faye."

He frowned, her responses continuing to irritate him but he said nothing, brushing off her remark. "Connor," was all he returned, looking back at the door.

Victoria gave a slight nod, and smiled. She went to the till, and paid for the bar of chocolate. She paused as she was about the leave the shop, and turned. She said nothing, but broke the bar in roughly half, and handed it to him, before turning, pondering if she should get something for her mother and father.

Three months into her pregnancy and she's already showing. She hadn't really officially announced it, considering it was information limited to her team, coach, wife, child and best friend, but the rumors were already swirling. Even the fact that she had taken to wearing baggy clothes couldn't stop them. Though now thinking, maybe that's what was fueling the rumors - or her sudden hiatus from quidditch.

It's only fair that he rewards him with something. Theo's been everywhere for the last few weeks, finalizing every small detail for his upcoming wedding. He's going around to every display, carefully picking out his favorite choices. Too engrossed in his own shopping, Theo realized almost too late that he was standing next to Malia. It would be rude not to say anything, and his eyes glance over her baggy clothes and hidden stomach area. "Congratulations." He manged to say, rather stiffly.

Malia had been milliseconds away from stepping away, but she knew she couldn't dodge Theo forever. Especially when he was due to marry her best friend so soon. So she sticks around. Her face registers surprise for the briefest of moments until she schools her expression, not wanting to seem any ruder than she has in the past. "Likewise," she says, in reference to his engagement, her tone as tense as his. For a moment, she contemplated saying she wasn't pregnant but rather just fat, but again, they weren't quite as close to mess around with him like that. Besides, the announcement would have to be eventually, wouldn't it?

There an awkward moment of silence that settled after awhile. Theofanis, who had been trained so in the art of conversation, found himself without anything to say. He leans forward a bit to pick up chocolate and to pretend as if he was engrossed in reading the ingredient list. He knows the displeasure that Malia has for him, so Theo contemplates why he should even make an effort to speak to her. There was a slight glance at his engagement ring. Right. Vasi considers her family, and if he can get along with who Theo considers family, then he should be able to make the same effort for his love. "Ah, so, when are you due? Are you having cravings already?" With eight siblings, there's bit and pieces of pregnancy that he knows happens. After all, he saw his mother's various pregnancies growing up. They all seemed to have a particular sameness to him -- or maybe he just misremembers his childhood memories.

Likewise, Malia felt the air of awkwardness, hence why she intended to just grab some chocolate and leave, but her stay became prolonged as she decided to pick some up for Ili and Lena; she might become the most hated mum/wife if she just took for herself. "At the end of May," A warm, genuine smile tugs at the corner of her lips. "I've had some, yes, and no, they haven't decreased in weirdness," Malia confesses, a little bashfully. Running a hand through her brown hair, she purses her lips for a few seconds. "How is wedding planning coming along?"

His hands let go of the elegantly decorated package immediately. Theo was never good at processing information when he was only pretending too. Had he looked closer, he would have realized that his package was one of chocolate-covered cherries. He knew better than to even bring any sort of cherries into his house - his love had a particular dislike of cherries. The dropping made a loud crinkle, and he hurriedly made sure to put it back into its place. “Spring baby. That’s beautiful.” Likewise, he meant every word of it. “It’s okay, I saw Mama’s growing up, it’s only natural.” There a slight pause before he decides it’s better to clarify. “The cravings, that is.” Theo clears his throat, before the discussion of his wedding brings him to a smile. “Way less stressful than I thought it would be. I have help though, so, that helps a lot. My family and various friends are stepping in, because you know, big affair.” His hands reach out to grab at the inticing look of hazelnut toffee.”

Malia turns her head, looking concerned when his hands let go of the chocolate. Her eyebrows knit together when she realized they had cherries. She waits until he puts it back in place, a bemused grin appearing on her face and lighting her features up. "Thank you," Malia smiles again when the new discussion brings a smile to Theo's face. As tense as things may be between them, at least she can see he holds genuine love for Vasi, and is getting a kick out of their wedding planning. "I extended an offer to help, but the second Vasi heard I was expecting... it went out the window," she pauses. "I suppose he didn't want me to strain myself or anything," she shrugs. "I still intend to handle his bachelor party, though," she says decidedly, smirking a little.

His hands grab on to the package of hazelnut toffee flavored chocolate, and after a brief overview, they land soundly into the basket in which he carries. His eyes wander around the stand to see what else he can take home in a fit of pre-wedding celebration. But for Theovasi, every day had been a day in which they decide to celebrate their engagement, no matter how far away that day has been. It never stops for them, the happiness their engagement has brought them. Theo loves feeling important to someone. The package of mint chocolates so close to the hazelnut toffee has been furrowing his eyebrows together. The flavor was his all-time favorite flavor, but every craving for them had been ruined by him. Quickly, he grabbed another box of the hazelnut toffee ones before realizing that Shit, he was in the middle of a conversation. “Sorry, everything’s so tasty that I need to choose carefully about what I want. Does hazelnut toffee sound good? I dunno if it’s my cup of tea.” The smile stays on his face now, not wanting to disappoint the other. “Your help would’ve been appreciated, but I hope you get the best for his bachelor party.” There’s a hint of mischievousness from his part, then the side wink happens. “You know all his tastes down to a T, so I’m sure it’ll be amazing. Bring him to the alter in one piece, though.” Speaking of one piece, his hands go out to tug at the bar of caramel salted chocolate.

The lack of a response, for a brief moment, worries Malia. She would hope Theo hadn't been ignoring her, but at the same time, she wouldn't be surprised. Upon closer inspection, and the realization that he was just distracted with the variety of chocolates in the shop, Malia tries to play off her amusement. Theo looked like an absolute child. Taking advantage of the silence that had hung over them for some time, Malia leaned in and picked a wide variety of chocolates. While on any given day before her pregnancy she'd feel embarrassed, she knew at least now she could fall back on cravings and most likely get away with it. All the baby weight she'd have to burn after giving birth wouldn't be fun, but at least she'd have fun for the next few months and would be able to indulge in all she'd been wanting since she had Iliana and started doing quidditch again. "Not my cup of tea," The brunette answers, lifting and dropping her shoulders in an indifferent shrug. "I'll get the best. And I'll deliver him at the alter whole... I hope," The edge of her lips quirk up a little. "...the mint flavored ones are the best, if you wanted to know."

Now this was a store she could live in. Both chocolate and classical music surrounded her and they were two of her favourite things. She was moving through the selections, dressed casually, with her hair back into a messy bun.

It was hard not to notice a pregnant woman in any situation, but in a small store like this, Charlie's eyes automatically dropped onto the familiar blonde and she stopped to stare. "Who would have thought it'd have been you who got knocked up," she noted coming closer, speaking in French, "is a congratulations in order?"

"Because you never hit me as the type to get pregnant at eighteen," she said simply, "but congratulations, anyway. I didn't realise I'd run into you," she confessed, though she wasn't sure if she liked a familiar face. She'd came to England for a fresh start, a chance to forget about Paris, her brothers, her father, her mother. Apparently not. "I guess the graduated life treated you well."

She whistled. Personally, she would never even consider marriage at eighteen, probably not until at least twenty five, let alone pregnancy. "Haven't heard of the guy," she said, "hope he's nice." She found this whole situation awkward, to say the least. "How long have you been engaged?"
