It had been ten days since she'd started at the Leaky Cauldron, and Alex felt far more comfortable and in a groove than she could ever remember at any new job she'd ever started. She'd worried a lot about how she would fit in culturally and linguistically, but everyone here just seemed so friendly and welcoming, and almost no one had made fun of her accent (which she'd never really considered an accent before). And Albie's help figuring out the menu had done so much for her confidence.
When she'd realized that Jeremy Evans was also a coworker, Alex had been excited to see another friendly face, as strange as it was for so many of her Ilvermorny class to have ended up here. They were working the closing shift for the kitchen and bar together tonight before the overnight clerk came in to manage any late night check-ins and supervise the minimal traffic of those who used the pub as a throughway between Muggle and Magical London.
"So when did you decide to come out here?" she asked curiously, things finally have calmed down enough for casual conversation.
