RP: Fancy meeting you here
Date: 1 September 1997
Characters: Xavier Selwyn, Alicia Spinnet
Location: The Wand and Wyvern in Diagon
Summary: Xavier "happens" to run into Alicia at her local pub.
Xavier had been watching her for the past day or two. He'd strolled by the address listed in her file and had unobtrusively watched the building for a bit until he'd ascertained that she did, in fact, live there. He'd done a bit more digging on the lovely Miss Spinnet, discovering that she was indeed friends with the Weasley twins. That was a point against her, but such things could be useful, he was sure.
So when making his appointment at Michaelangelo's, which was across from Gringotts, to get fitted for a new set of robes, he made it for approximately an hour before the time she usually was let off from work. And when he saw her, he wrapped up his business with the tailor and stepped smartly into Diagon Alley.
He followed her toward her flat, avoiding the nuisance peddlers hawking their wares in the middle of the street. He smirked as she stepped into the Wand and Wyvern. It wasn't the classiest of pubs, but it would do quite nicely.
A moment later, he was pulling open the door as well, eyes scanning the room and spotting her taking a seat in a quiet corner. Perfect. He retrieved two pints of beer and made his way over.
"May I join you?" he asked, giving her a grin.
