Penny had sent Percy his journal today and had forgotten to say Happy Birthday to him. How could she have let that specific detail slip her mind? Penny had even bought him a gift, and a card, she also had the intentions of baking some form of cake but she didn't know if she could even bake a cake. Penny decided she would stop by Percy's after she had something to dinner out, she had to do some shopping. Since she didn't eat meat unless it was fish she was limited when it came to eating out. She would probably shovel down some fish 'n' chips like usual when she came to The Leaky Cauldron, probably with a pint of beer or maybe class it up a bit with a glass of wine. Once done she had to go and see Percy to wish him a Happy Birthday.
Penny was just walking in wiping her feet on the mat before she looked up, and when she did she saw him. She felt her heart race for one moment and then relief set in, she could say happy birthday now. With a bright smile she headed over to his table hoping she wasn't crashing a party.
"Percy! Happy Birthday!" Penny bent over to give him a hug. "Sorry I didn't say Happy Birthday in my letter, it slipped my mind while I wrote it. But I have a present for you." Penny pulled out a wrapped parcel and her card. The box seemed small but inside that small box was a silver pocket watch with Percy's initials engraved into it. "Happy twenty-first birthday! I hope you like it."
