Books are delightful society.
Characters: Padma Patil, anyone but Bella is invited
Summary: Haven Books has its Grand Opening.
Padma walked quickly through her store, checking the alcove charms and shelves of books for the fifth time. She could see Brenna, who was behind the coffee and tea bar, trying not to laugh at her, and Padma smiled.
"It's normal to be a bit nervous," Padma murmured to herself. "Just do as Parvati says: smile, be helpful and be happy. I can do this."
Smoothing down the front of her robes, she watched as the clock ticked over to 10 am. A flick of her wand raised the curtain in the front window, revealing the carefully arranged display of Muggle and Magical literature. After charming the little sign at the side of the front window to say "Open", Padma moved to unlock and open the front door, smiling at the two women who were just coming out of Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop.
When they smiled back and moved toward her bookstore, Padma felt a thrill of excitement.
"Good morning," Padma said, giving the women an even bigger smile as they entered the store. "Welcome to Haven Books!"
