RP: It was Sunday
Date: 19 July 1997

Location: Diagon Alley
Status: Public (ping Kaz to join!)
Summary: Melinda has a task for work in Diagon Alley and runs into a few people ...
First of all, Melinda was not happy to be having to work on Sunday. She was pretty sure there was a regulation or a law against it or something. But she hadn't been able to put her finger on it, so she couldn't speak up to Mr. Weasley and point out that weekends were for anything but work.
Which was why she had a purseful of Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts from the petty coin drawer and she was in Diagon, to buy as many so-called protective amulets, trinkets, and charmed items as she could from the peddlers who'd sprung up in the past few months, hawking their cheap and ridiculous wares to whatever unfortunate idiot would buy them. And today, she got to pretend to be an unforunate idiot. Gee, working for the Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects really was great for her confidence.
Scowling, she tossed her hair and entered Diagon through the back entrance of the Leaky. It was best to start at one end and work her way down, she supposed.
