Who: Bill and Fleur
What: An evening at home after dinner Chez Weasley
When: Sunday evening
Where: Shell Cottage
Bill liked Sundays possibly the best of all days, right now. It was a day when, for the most part, he could take a little rest from the nastiness brewing all around. It was still brewing, of course, but for one day it was a little more distant--he and Fleur could stay home, clean the house or walk down on the beach or just stay in bed all day. Some Sundays, like this one, they'd go to the Burrow and have supper with his family. Of course, the main topic of conversation was always the nastiness outside, but Bill felt blessed that he could at least share that news with his family, that unit that was (so far) still mostly intact.
So, even though they had talked mostly of who'd disappeared this week, or who'd gone over to the other side, and none of it was good news, he felt satisfied and happy when he and Fleur returned home. Full of Molly's cooking and lively conversation. Well, and they had talked a little about Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, which was more cheerful. He was quite proud of his brothers, all told.
He smiled across at Fleur. "You know, I think George and Fred might be millionaires before they turn thirty, at the rate they're going. Maybe they should pay me a consultant fee to reverse-engineer the competition's products, do you think?"
