RP: Teddy's Arrival
Who: Teddy, Sirius, & Remus
When: Late afternoon
Where: Outside of the kitchens - then Gryffindor Tower
What: Teddy arrives and gets unusual news.
The day had been long. Teddy had woken up long before the sun was up and headed into work. There were doughs to prep for later in the day, things to bake, employees to instruct, and so on. First, they'd prepared things for the breakfast goers - donuts, muffins, croissants, and so on. After the first few hours, those were gone and fresh loaves of bread for the lunches and dinners of their customers were out, along with a string of cupcakes, full cakes, pies, bonbons, macarons, macaroons - the list never ended and they were practically sold out of everything by the end of the day. Business was good.
But business was also tiring.
So when Teddy got back to his flat, he was sweaty, exhausted, and ready to crash. At least he'd had the time to take a shower. He'd been in the middle of brushing his teeth when there was a knocking at his front door. It'd been two steps through his apartment when he stumbled, dizziness striking him and... This was a very familiar area. He was all too familiar with the lower levels of Hogwarts. But he couldn't even say anything because he had a mouth full of foamed-up toothpaste. It would be ill manners to just... spit on the floor but he didn't have much of a choice.
So maybe he spit the toothpaste out as subtly as he could and then fished his wand out of the pockets of his pyjama pants (oh god he was only in pyjama pants!!!) and scourgified the spot clean. That didn't at all get rid of the toothpaste around his mouth or whatever but he was loathed to do that again. Wand and toothbrush in one hand, he was running towards the stairs up out of the basement. His hair was turning a bright, noticeably yellow color - not even blonde - and he just caught a glimpse of feet passing above. "Pardon me!" he called out, which just caused another drip of toothpaste. He probably looked rabid. This was such a nightmare.
