Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?
Characters: Faelan, Harry, Hermione
Summary: Hermione comes to open up, Faelan takes advantage
Three plates, three glasses, three napkins, silverware. Faelan stood back from the table, rubbed his chin, and studied his work. The table looked surprisingly presentable. What were they missing? Just the food, it seemed.
Harry stood at the stove stirring some potato thing and Faelan moved to select a bottle of wine. Harry had said that Hermione was coming to dinner. He'd automatically started setting the table for five, but then Harry surprised him with the news that Ron and Leila weren't coming. He sounded concerned, which made Faelan think the wine might be in order. Plus, alcohol always went far in loosening his tongue, and he had a shining opportunity to take advantage of tonight, if he could be strategic.
Pouring himself a taste, he downed it before Harry could notice he was pouring himself a second glass. He filled the other goblets and was about to set them both down when he heard the unmistakable sound of the floo.
"I'll greet her," he told Harry quickly as something bubbled and burped on the stove. Taking advantage, and a full glass of wine in his hand, Faelan moved to the parlor to say hello to their guest.
