RP: A Boy's Adventure
Date: 26 June 2006 Characters: Padma, Theo, Nathaniel Location: Istanbul Private/Public: Private Rating: PG Warnings: - Summary: Padma and her family are on holiday, and there's sun, and boys both young and old go on an adventure.
The portkey that took the Notts to Istanbul was quick, and Nathaniel was in high spirits as they arrived in their hotel. He instantly took to the sun, and the warmth of the place. The humidity was high, and it didn't seem to bother her son in the least.
But now she was here for business - the silkworm farm, and negotiating a purchase of the worms for her own farm back in India. For the time she was there, negotiating work, she left Theo with Nathaniel, wondering just what sort of adventures her boys would get up to.
When she returned, a successful day of business behind her (at least she thought so. They were very receptive to her first offer, but it was only the first day of negotiations), it was to find the boys surrounded by a plethora of foods.
It seemed Theo had taken him to the bazaar, and Nathaniel had been introduced to all the sights, the sounds and the colours of the bright markets. The scent of spices was in the air, and Nathaniel was giggling as he tried to stuff Turkish Delight into his mouth.
"Well it seems he likes a bit of Turkish Delight," she chuckled, not wanting to clean him up just yet. She'd let him have his fun, and be a boy for a while. But Theo said he'd wanted to try everything, and so he'd had a little of everything - the sweet breads, the sweet dates and other fruits, even some chicken that was mildly spiced.
Apparently they were going to the museum tomorrow, and then shopping for a present for Mummy. Who was Padma to argue with such plans. They were on holidays, and when this deal was successfully over, she'd make sure her family had a fantastic holiday in the sun.
