Date: 30th January 2006
Characters: Kevin Entwhistle, mentions of Anthony Goldstein
Location: Muggle London and surround areas
Summary: Kevin and Anthony go into Muggle London to get things done
Kevin met Anthony at the clinic just as his friend was leaving for the day. Kevin had planned on just going into London to get a few books to continue his research for his animagus project, but was glad Anthony wanted to come along. He's been so engrossed in the project that he'd forgotten his friend's birthday and felt bad about it, so he was determined to make up for it.
Once past the checkpoint and in London, Kevin took his friend to a wonderful Thai restaurant he was fond of. The service was good and the food fantastic as they discussed life in general. Kevin told Anthony of his project and what he hoped to find from doing all this work. He listened with wide eyes as Anthony told him about the casino and what it all contained. It disturbed Kevin a bit that the Lestranges, of all people, had memberships, but the fact it was a neutral site calmed him somewhat.
After going to the bank (which involved Anthony making a side trek to somewhere) and getting the account set up, they made their way to one of the largest libraries in the city. While Anthony marveled at the fiction section, Kevin went to work in the reference section, looking for every book he could find on human DNA - the history of its discovery, extraction, ways to using it, anything that would help him in his project. He had a large stack of notes and copies when he finished, shrinking them for ease of travel before they left.
Their last stop was Cardiff to visit Kevin's Mum. He smiled as Theressa oohed and ahhed over Anthony, then went out and checked the wards he had put around the house. Once inside, they were treated to a large slice of cake, since it was Anthony's birthday. By the time they left, the mood was light and happy, Anthony calling it his best birthday ever.
As they Apparated back to Hogsmeade, Kevin reminded his friend it wasn't over yet and sent him home to Megan. Kevin headed back to Dippet Drive, putting his notes away and headed for Antonin's pool. For once, work could wait until tomorrow. He'd had an excellent day and it was time to relax.
