PostSubject: Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice (Open)    Wed Sep 24, 2014 1:05 am

These days Brennan rarely ventured out of Dublin for anything other than school or going back home to visit his son, but today for some reason he had an itching to get out and do something. Why exactly he ended up in Belfast he wasn't actually sure, but after seeing nothing but the four walls of his apartment for months now the change of scenery was very much appreciated. He hadn't realized how starved for human interaction he was until the simple act of talking to a shop clerk had become the high light of his week. "I have got to get out of the house more," he muttered to himself decisively as he strolled around the city. Ever since graduating school he'd lost touch with all his friends as he was more focused on being a father and working and school, while the majority of his classmates didn't have half of that to worry about.

Still though, saying that he wasn't a little lonely was a bit of a lie. Brennan made a vow that he'd try to make some real friendships at school this year. While it normally came easy to him, it was hard to form lasting relationships when you were as strapped time as he was. Though there would be plenty of time for that later, for now though the alluring smell of pumpkin spice and apple cider was calling to him from a near by cafe. A hot cup of coffee sounded absolutely amazing to him right now and he followed the smell on a whim. The cafe was a small obviously family owned place that somehow managed to survive with the nearby Starbucks competing with it. The lines were just as long and the place was absolutely packed. In fact when he got his latte there was only one open table for two open.

He felt a little guilty taking up the space when a couple could have sat there, but he was more than content to just sit outside the quaint little place with his latte and a book in hand and enjoy the on set of fall weather. He rummaged around in his bag until he found his copy of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and started to idly flip through it imaging one day writing a book of his own.

Wrapping her scarf around her neck, Rhian walked slowly down the winding path. She'd never been to Ireland, and Teagan had found time in her schedule to get away from Salem, so had proposed a girl's weekend. Not one to pass up a chance to get out of the castle, the young witch had packed her bag quicker than you could say Thestral.

Now, though, with the wind blowing through the thinning trees, she was wondering if she shouldn't have just stayed at the bed and breakfast on the outskirts of town. Teagan had mentioned something about doing some reading, so had told her to go find some adventure. More like a brisk chill and a certain ache in her body that came with the cooling weather.

Just as she was about to turn around, a strong scent of apples and cinnamon wafted her way. Taking it in, she let her eyes drift closed at the delicious smell. A grin spread across her face as she moved towards a small area that housed shops of various kinds.

It didn't take long at all to find the small cafe. Unfortunately, the line was long. Rhian wondered if it was worth the wait, but seeing a sign for hot pumpkin tea, she vowed to wait a lifetime if she had to! Though it was considerably less than that.

One tea, and two donuts later, she turned away from the shop to find a place to settle down. The area was still crowded, and all the tables seemed to be full. There were benches across the town center, near the park, but they were out in the open and provided no shelter at all. With her treasures in hand, she moved to follow the small row of tables around the corner of the building. Far in the back, there was one last chair...

At an occupied table. Worrying at her lip, Rhian couldn't help but wonder what the harm would be in asking to join a complete stranger for tea. The worst they could say was to bugger off. Steeling that Gryffindor resolve, she strode over to the small table.

"Hi. Mind if I join you? It's the only chair left out here." She tried for a smile, though she wasn't quite sure how it came off. Honestly, the cold was getting to her. She'd grown up in the south. Yes, she'd spent enough years on this side of the water that she should be used to the early change in season. But the first onset of chill still got to her.

In the middle of a particularly riveting piece on dragons, which had to be Brennan's favorite of the magical creatures, he wasn't as aware of his surroundings as he normally would have been. So he didn't notice the young girl approaching him until she was already upon him asking to take a seat. He looked up over the edge of his book and smiled warmly at her. "Of course I felt like kind of a jerk occupying the only table left all on my lonesome." As he motioned for the girl to take the open chair he gave her a subtle once over. She looked vaguely familiar but he couldn't place where he would have known her. He tucked his book into is backpack and pulled out a muggle magazine instead and idly flipped through it as he sipped his drink.

He probably would have been content to sit there in silence for a bit until either he or she were finished. If he hadn't just finished telling himself that he'd be making an effort to be more social he would have. After a bit of awkward silence he laid the magazine to the side and cleared his throat a little. "So from the way you're all bundled up I take you aren't from around here are ya lass?" Brennan asked commenting on her scarf and winter attire compared to his thin long sleeved shirt and pants. "What brings ya out to beautiful Belfast today?"
