He was sitting at the bar, taking a sip a drink. He didn't particularly know what it was and it had been the first thing he saw on the menu. It tasted alright, wasn't bad but wasn't great either. He was celebrating, he got his dream job after putting it off for so long. He considered calling one of his friends, or even his cousin, to celebrate with him and had actually called one or two of his friends up, but they'd been busy so he went alone. He'd made some small talk with the bartender but he moved off to attend other customers and he was left alone with his thoughts.

On the other hand, Phoebe was still having a hard time finding work for herself and it had been another tough day of not being able to find a good path to go down. Sure, she still had her position at Rouge Lips, but she didn't want to work there forever, let alone as a secretary. In hopes of getting her spirits up, she decided to go to the Hopping Pot, which was usually quieter than the clubs nearby like La Lune Bleue, but still had the company. When she apparated in, she strutted to the bar and confidently took a seat like she wasn't aching inside. For a brief moment, she smiled at the person next to her, then got the attention of the bartender, so she could order a drink.

His eyebrows raised slightly in surprise when a blonde smiled over at him, his eyes flicking over to her, barely remembering to smile back, but when he did, it was a genuine one. "Would you turn me down if I offered to buy you a drink?" He asked as the bartender began to walk over them. "Or am I overstepping my mark?"

Phoebe looked back over at him, not really expecting him to say anything, even if she was hoping that he would. She smiled again, holding off now on ordering a drink for herself. "No, feel free," she waved from him to the bartender, before giving the man a simple wink. "Surprise me." A small laugh at how casually silly it was, not wanting to seem like a total flirt, even if she might be trying.

Shit. He ran a hand through his hair. He was never good at surprises so he went with the first thing that entered his mind. "Dragon Scale and draught beer for the lady, please," he said, shooting the bartender a small smile before looking back to Phoebe, "busy night?"

"Not really," she said with a small shrug, taking the time to look him up and down when she did. "I had a shift at my job, then I went around looking for job openings elsewhere." Right now, all she could think of (that she qualified for) was an Auror position, but it seemed to professional of a position for her. "Not super exciting. What about you?" She rested her head on the back of her hand to show she was interested and listening.

He wasn't blind to her checking him out and he couldn't say he was complaining. Not like he hadn't done that when she had walked in. "Not too different, actually," he confessed, "I just got the job I wanted. I resigned at my other job this morning. Quite exciting, actually. Can I ask where you worked? Well, want to work too."

"Rouge Lips, the little spa place in Hogsmeade. It's not too bad, but I don't want to work there my entire life." It was quite understandable. She had the NEWT qualifications for any number of jobs at the Ministry. She could even teach if she wanted to (she didn't). Yet she was working at a spa as a secretary and it didn't pay well enough for her to keep up at her apartment. "I was thinking of applying to be an Auror, but I'm still not so sure that that's right for me. What's this big job you got, hm?"

"I think I might have heard of it," he confessed before staring at her in slight surprise, his eyes widening slightly, his smile dropping before a brief second before coming back in full force. "Seriously? You should try out for it. I did and I got it."

"Maybe you should stop by sometime. It really helps relieve stress. I mean, nothing is saying that a man can't get some pampering done," she said, smiling fondly. After all, men had stress, too. "But congrats! I guess if I went for it, I would know somebody there." While she wouldn't say it, Phoebe felt a little bit more relieved to know there might be a familiar face there, even if she didn't know his name. "Oh! The name's Phoebe, by the way."

"That's true, that and it feels great to be pampered," he joked before pausing, running a hand through his hair, "I'm Augustin, sorry I completely forgot, should have said it first off, and...I wouldn't mind a familiar face either. I don't know anyone there. You should, don't do what I did, I wanted nearly ten years to actually go for the job."

Phoebe couldn't imagine going at what she was doing for another four years. "I've been waiting for six...and I think that's long enough. You know what? I might actually send in my application." Somehow, hearing from somebody else had helped her feel more confident in it, even if a total stranger. Augstin could be lying to her for all she knew, but it still helped. "It's a pleasure meeting you, Augustin. If you don't mind me asking, what were you doing before?"

Augustin wasn't thinking too much into what he was saying. He usually stuck to the truth, his truth anyway. "Likewise," he said with a tilt of his face and as the drink was slid in front of her but his attention didn't shift from her, "and I was a bartender at some muggle bar in London. Pretty dull, actually."

Phoebe took a brief glance at the bartender, almost hoping he hadn't heard Augustin's words. He was probably right. After all, he had gone through it. Except a part of her still felt bad. "I thought bartending was supposed to be some sort of art form, socially and otherwise. That's what I have heard anyways. I could be wrong."

"It was," he confessed. He knew the bartender was close but he didn't really care if he was overhead. He found jobs were always more of a subjective experience than anything. "For the first few years but it just became the same drinks day in and day out, if I got to experiment, maybe it would have been better. Plus, the money wasn't worth the work of making drinks plus playing therapist to drunkards."
