All in all, Roger's first day working for the twins was shaping up to be quite the pleasant experience. He got to mess around with some amazing products that showed ingenuity that some might not have expected from a couple of pranksters, while flirting with the occasional bird that happened to visit the joke shop. He would have joked that they were paying him to just hang around and look pretty, if he wasn't so sure that they would really put him to work if he said that.
That wasn't to say he wasn't doing something that constituted as 'work.' Moving boxes, checking the inventory, counting countless amounts of product, keeping things tidy were all work-related and it kept him occupied during the lull between customers. He could only hope that this was what a regular day would consist of while he worked there.
Signing a piece of parchment for a child that wasn't yet old enough to go to Hogwarts, but old enough to know who he was, Roger gave him a grin and said, "Remember to tell all your friends where to shop now." Standing up from his crouched position, he waved at the small gaggle of kids gathered by the window, looking in with a mixture of envy and uncertainty, and laughed when they all scattered at his acknowledgment.
Yes. He could get used to this. Turning away as the young fan ran out of the shop with a bag of purchases, he hopped up on the counter and wondered where the twins were. He hadn't heard any worrying bangs from their backroom in too long now.
