Felicity was a little nervous to be going on an official date, especially with Logan. She just hoped everything would go okay, and nothing would happen like the last time they were hanging out. She decided to choose The Retro because 1) It was in Hogsmeade and 2) She thought it would remind Logan of America. Which she hoped was a good thing. She entered the restaurant, glancing around for Logan as she wasn't sure if he was there yet or not.

It was strange being back in the Retro. Last time he was in there, it was because of his nephew scampering off. Now, it was because he was on a date. He wasn't sure why he said yes to her, it's not like he thought, or believed, he was ready for it, another relationship but here he was. On a date. Eventually, he found her and slid into the booth across from her. "Hey there," he said with a smile.

She smiled when Logan joined her, "Hey, I'm glad you could make it." She said happily. "So, I've never eaten here before believe it or not. Hopefully you can recommend something good, since you seem to know the food better than I do." She commented, American food was a little different then British food that much she knew. She just hoped that she wouldn't be too awkward on the date, and nervously brushed a strand of hair behind her ear.

"Oh...uh...I don't know, I've only been here once. America like it's grease. Burgers and all that jazz," he said, scratching his neck as he looked through the menu.

“Burgers... Maybe I’ll get the bacon cheeseburger, that sounds good.” She said as she looked over the menu, “Onion rings sound good too.” She said, realizing how she sounded and she swallowed thickly. “Uhm, or something else like a salad...” she said, taking a sip of water.

"Why?" He asked, a bit confused on why she would change her order like that, "the onion rings are good, I got them last time. We could share a bowl?"

"Oh, sure. That sounds nice," She said with a small smile, she just didn't want to seem like a black hole devouring everything. "Do you eat them plain or with dipping sauce? I usually eat them with ranch," She commented, and the waitress came over to their table. Felicity did end up ordering her burger, and also the onion rings.

“Oh very good, we’re starting to get into the more interactive stuff and actually dealing with plants. I just really hope no one gets hurt, but there’s always at least one child who gets hurt,” she replied. “What about you? How’s everything going at the Aquarium?” She asked curiously.

"A gym probably," he said with a shrug, "I don't think my brother needs me anymore, so I'm thinking of moving out as well. He's doing pretty good, so...don't want to overstay my welcome, I guess."

"Well raw talent is rare to come by these days," She commented, and their food arrived. After the waitress left, Felicity stared at her food. "I-I didn't think the portions would be so big, is this how big they are in America?" She asked Logan, glancing at his food as well.

"Oh, yeah," he said with a laugh, "this is pretty average actually." He tossed an onion ring into his mouth, "but you don't have to eat it all."

“I’m not sure I’ll be able to,” She said with a small chuckle and ate an onion ring, before cutting her burger in half in order to eat it easier. “So, Logan... I wanted to talk to you,”

Having expected it he wasn't completely surprised and thrown off. He put his food down and wiped his hands with a napkin. "I'm imagining that's something you want?" He asked.

He was silent for a moment, exhaling slowly, before shifting in his seat. "Look, you're a nice girl, you will meet a really good guy one day," he began, "I just...it's not me."

She felt her heart break at that, she really thought there was something between her and Logan. She was quiet, just glancing down. "O-Oh... W-Well I'm sure you'll meet a nice girl someday then," She said and gave a very forced smile. She had just been rejected, what was she supposed to do? Continue on with the date? She just folded up her napkin and placed it on the table, "W-Well, um. I seem to have lost my appetite and I just remembered I have something important to go to," She said, trying her very hardest not to cry. "Thank you for your time, I'll see you around Logan," She said, placing some money on the table to pay for her food before exiting The Retro trying to keep everything together.



Sophia and Helena

Usually, she wouldn't have been seen dead in a place like this, but she was hungry and this was the closest restaurant that she found. Why she was spending so much time in Hogsmeade, she didn't know. Originally, it was clothes shopping but she kept on getting sidetracked by memory lane. How embarrassing. She'd begun to garner some attention from the public eye and two of her security guards were sitting close to her own table, steering people away from going up to her. Not that she really noticed, anyway. It had been a long time since she had. Having already placed her order, she was fixing her makeup, looking into a small compact mirror as she reapplied her dark red lipstick.

Hel was bored, bored enough to enter shops and restaurants one wouldn't expect a royal to be in. She could have went to Monde Irise, but the gallery was very busy at this time of the day and she frankly hates being in crowds in such small enclosed spaces, so to the Retro she went. Let's see what American cuisine has to offer... She was dressed inconspicuously, hair styled in a way that would make her difficult to identify at first glance and makeup lighter than what the public was used to. A couple of her own security guards were present around her, also dressed to blend in,

She might not have seen Helena at first. Due to the girl's outfit, if Sophia hadn't been family, she might have just skipped over her, but she'd recognise her own family members anywhere (though there were a few times that she wished she didn't, though she'll never admit to who they were). She snapped the mirror closed with her finger. "Mind some company?" She asked, making sure her voice was loud enough to be heard.

Hel turns her head towards the familiar voice, instantly recognising her cousin. The girl approaches the elder, a pleasant smile on her face, more for formality than anything else. "Ah, good day to you too, cousin dear. Your presence in this establishment is unexpected but not unwelcome. Company is, of course, appreciated."

The formality of her cousin brought a small smile onto her face, and she pocketed her things into her bag. "I know, being in here is as unexpected to me as it is to you," she said, "I decided not to question it."

She took the seat opposite of Sophia. "Have you tried any of the dishes here? This is the first time here at the, ah, the Retro and judging from the food being served, I suppose they're centered around American cuisine?"

"Most definitely, so if you desire a hamburger or a hot dog, this is the place for you, they have pizza as well. Blatant rip off of Italy but I suppose America is associated with that now," she conceded, "steak too. I haven't, first time I've been here but I briefly went to New York." This was an absolute lie but her years of being away from the royals was meant for travelling and she told them that America was one of the places. "Pretty standard food, really."

"Ah, America certainly has... interesting dishes." Helena is a woman who loves to be impressed, and right now she really isn't that impressed with the food choices she is given, but she keeps her mouth shut. This is a public establishment, which means she has to hold her tongue back and maintain a pleasant disposition. "Which dish happened to catch your attention the most, dear cousin?"

"The drinks would be nice as well," Hel graciously accepts the given menu, looking increasingly... :/ at each of the items. "They sure do have an appreciation for greasy foods." was all she could comment.

"As well as to be expected," she responded with a shrug. This was vague but it was her only response. "Is Hogwarts still as dreary as I remember it to be?" She asked with a grin.
