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.

Maria was flipping through mysteries, but was soon distracted by a slew of new potions texts. 'Ooh! I need to order that.'

Davu was wandering through the store trying to find a book on flowers, wondering if perhaps he could find what he was looking for. He just browsed, a little discouraged at finding nothing.

Maria noticed the disappointed demeanor of the other person walking around the book store, and turned around to face him, 'What is it you are looking for? Assuming you are looking for something in particular.'

Davu glanced over to see Maria, but there was no way he knew what she was saying. He didn't know any sign language and just froze for a moment, "Are you talking to me?" He asked, pointing to himself. He hoped he was able to communicate with her, not wanting to be rude.

Maria appeared confused herself, and she checked her pendant, stopped it, and spun it again, 'I asked if you were looking form something in particular, considering you look a tad disappointed.' She pointed at his face, indicating facial expression.

'Roses? Ah, I see. One moment.' Maria swished her wand again- nothing occuring. She gave her wand another wave, a book, titled "How to Garden: Growing Roses", flies out from the back of the shop, and smacks her in the side of the face. She stumbles, as the book flops to the floor. Maria rubbed her face, picking the book up and handing it to Davu. 'I suppose this one.'

She was moving through the shelves, her fingers trailing against the spines, as her eyes eyed the titles. She'd run out a few weeks back and had been rereading but had found herself bored so she was stocking up on new ones. At her heels, the puppy was following her, darting between her legs periodically, as if playing a game. She didn't pay much mind to him.

Hekate had sent the worker at the front desk off to find her a particular book not found on the shelves and was currently sitting atop the desk with the cash register. Criss-cross apple sauce, she was leaned over a novel that had been plucked off the shelf nearest to her and appeared to be extremely bored with the contents. Spying Giselle moving through the aisle, Hekate held the book out by her finger tips and dropped it loudly onto the floor.

She didn't even react to the noise, ignoring it, but the dog yelped, hitting her in the ankle and she winced slightly. She glanced down to him before glancing over to the noise, raising an eyebrow at the girl. "Are you going to pick it up?"

Hekate eyed the dog for some time before her attention lifted back to Giselle, her own brow quirking. Who cared for such trivial things? Intringued, the blonde spun around on the table until she could hang upsidedown on the edge and snagged the book artfully. Shifting back into an upright positions with fluid movements, Hekate tossed the book onto a pile haphazardly.

She knew the girl wasn't an employee. She wouldn't have tossed the book away like that if she was. Even knowing this, she still moved over to her, crossing her arms over her chest. "I'm looking for a book," she began, "you work here, so you can help me."

She leaned back on the palms of her hands as Giselle approached the desk, her head tipping to the right in a curious manner. "I don't work here," she said blatantly, her soft irish accent blurring some letters. "I can help you." She had spent countless days in this shop she since at arrived in London and had scowered almost every inch. "For a fee," she challenged with a slight smirk.

"Because I already have half of it," she said and slid from the counter to close some distance between them. Holding out the palm of her hand, Hekate waited to see what Giselle would choose to do. In truth, most of the money will go to meals or bribing shopkeepers to spent a night in basements or storage rooms. She hadn't yet inspected the girl's mind - simply because she was exhausted from how many times she had used it today. She didn't want to risk that headache.

Giselle didn't ask too many questions and Hekate quite liked that about the girl. Dipping her fingers into her pocket, the coin slid from her palm and fell between the fabric. "What did you need help finding?" she inquired, pale blue eyes scoping out the store while she waited for a response.

She only recognized a few of the titles, some of which she knew the exact location. Hekate slipped down an aisle and begun to stack some in her arm, browsing as she went for any of the others she didn't reocgnize. After searching, the blonde only returned with three books in total. Well, at least it was something. Carefully, she held out the small stack. "That's all I know of."

"I stay true to my word," she replied with a casual roll of her shoulders that helped to release muscles threatening to coil. Hekate scowled deeply at her thanks, hating any degree of kindness. "Don't thank me. You paid." She flicked a strand of her platinum blonde hair from her shoulder and returned to the desk in time to snag the book she had requested from the store worker.

Hekate pulled out the appropriate amount and handed it over to the shopkeeper to pay for the book. In turn, the employee completed the transaction with little to no suspicion about the stolen cash. She subconsciously hugged the book to her chest as she returned to Giselle, mild amusement twinkling in her eyes.

"Stunned, dazed, cloudy.

Then her attention was straying to a lemonade and cold drink cart, causing her to immediately veer. "Want something? Bookstore's treat."

"That sounds like a fairy tale," she said sourly and ordered a sweet lemonade for herself. Hekate looked temporarily thrown off by her question, brows knitting together.

She pursed her lips thoughtfully and realized that no matter what, this was still a kind thing to do. Gross. Shooting a glare at the man behind the drink cart, he in turn quickly begun to make exactly what Giselle requested. Hekate slipped some coins onto the counter and took a sip of her lemonade. "I don't know how wise it is to accept a drink from a thief. You've got some balls," she dispelled her sardonic humor effortlessly.

Hekate rolled her pale orbs out of momentary annoyance and nibbled on the pladtic straw out of habit. Or maybe boredom? "You'd be surprised on these streets," she said honestly, knowing well enough that the dark underbelly of London, with all the thieving and murder, was a breeding ground for possibility - and she wasn't really an exception to the streetrat clause.
