Guess who's coming to dinner? Characters: Bill, Fleur, Tonks, and Charlie Setting: Shell Cottage, Sunday evening Summary: Dinner, drinks, chat, and fun. Rating: PG. Maybe a little cursing.
(Apologies for not getting this scene up sooner, guys! It's been a CRAZY week).
Bill was absolutely thrilled that Tonks and Charlie were coming to visit. Since their start at Hogwarts, he'd seen little of either of them and was happy for the chance to forget bigger troubles and just have a good dinner with friends. Charlie, though obviously his brother, had been his childhood best friend and Bill still felt closest to him of all his siblings. They were relatively close in age, so much so that Bill had considered Charlie his twin as a kid until the real twins came along. As for Tonks, though he'd been in school around the same time as her, he'd only come to know her more during his work for the Order. He thought she was incredibly funny and engaging, and he liked Remus very much as well. The pair were his favorite to sit alongside at Order meetings.
And so, with a case of beer and two bottles of wine in hand, he entered Shell Cottage from the windswept yard and ducked into the kitchen, calling out to Fleur.
"Where are you? They'll be here soon! What can I do to help?"
