WHO: Roger and Blaise WHEN: 11 o'clock, Tuesday WHERE: The Cheering Charm, Diagon Alley WHAT: Blaise has leverage on Roger and wants to use it Incomplete
Entering the Cheering Charm at five minutes before eleven, Roger looked around and saw Zabini had not yet arrived. Grimacing, wishing he could just turn around, but knowing that wasn't an option, he went to the counter and got a strong coffee before taking a seat at a table near the back. Usually he didn't mind being observed, but this time he was sure the conversation would be one he didn't want anyone else to hear.
Sipping his coffee, Roger mentally berated himself for the millionth time. He never intended to get so drunk that his judgment was impaired or to cheat on Marietta, despite his annoyance with the situation she'd accidentally dumped him in. He wasn't a complete louse and certainly didn't want to hurt her, so decided to keep the lapse quiet, but now his error had been found out by Zabini who was obviously going to exploit it to his advantage.
