Tea Time! Who: Remus Lupin and Lily Potter What: Catching up over tea When: Mid morning Where: Coffee house, Godric's Hollow village Warnings: PG
The coffee house in Godric's Hollow was one of Remus' favorite places. It was always filled with laughter and good music and plenty of chocolate biscuits. It'd been nearly a month since Remus had seen Lily last, and he'd decided it was time they caught up. Settled into a corner of the cafe in a cozy armchair with a cup of tea and a book, he waited, occasionally glancing up at the door.
The book was a hefty volume on Wizarding legal history and he'd been scanning it for various bits of legislature regarding civil rights law. So far he'd tagged a 1845 case where a vampire was granted a license run a business and a 1619 case where a werewolf was granted parental rights in a divorce case (then again, the other parent was a convicted murderer, and the case was later overturned...but it was worth noting nevertheless). The articles were more research in his ever-growing case against the Ministry for greater werewolf rights. The work was tedious and didn't really pay (he got the occasional stipend for a published editorial), but it kept him busy and it made him feel worthwhile.
He caught a glimpse of auburn hair outside the window and snapped the dusty tome shut, stowing it with his papers in his leather satchel, and pouring himself more tea from the ceramic pot floating nearby.
