Absolutely sick of her own cooking - and craving a bit of fish and chips - Melinda decided a trip to the Leaky Cauldron was in order. It was a bit of a dive, but Tom made the best in the city. Besides, the Leaky was always more fun than the Three Broomsticks, and she'd rather die than attempt eating at the Hog's Head. Merlin only knew if the rumors about the man who owned the place were true.
It seemed crowded tonight, but that didn't phase her. Heading to the bar, where she spotted an open stool, she brightened as she saw someone she knew.
"Marietta! It's been ages since I saw you!" she said, slipping onto the seat.
