Was he flirting with her? Oh Merlin, those butterflies instantly began fluttering in the pit of her stomach as she studied him for a moment. Did he really want to hear her play? It's been so long since she actually had an audience that the thought made her a little anxious. As she listened to him explain his brother's cottage, Lavender shifted on the sofa to begin serving the tea. Head lifted at the mention of her going with him to Bill's cottage. "Oh," She began nervously, swallowing slightly, she immediately looked down at the tea. "I..." Clearing her throat, she suddenly felt like she was falling. "I... don't really like to leave the cottage."
However, she fell silent as he spoke about Bill having valuable knowledge that could help her. Placing a tea spoon in his cup, she placed it all on a matching saucer before lifting it up to offer it to him, "He has knowledge that could help me?" Lavender couldn't even fathom what kind of information Bill might have for her. It's been ages since she corresponded with any of the Weasley's that the idea of Bill having information for her left her perplexed.
While Lavender didn't know it at the time, she was inwardly relieved that this little meeting was going as well as it was. Lavender didn't really know what to expect, but pleasant conversation was certainly not one of them.
Head tilted to the side as he mentioned being on his mind. Eyes widened with surprise as he offered her the gift. A tiny smile curled on her lips as she took the bag. "Of course I'm not offended. Do you do this for all your clients, Mr Weasley? Shower them with gifts?" Biting down on her bottom lip she attempted to hide that coy smile which was begging to paint across her face. She wasn't sure if she was supposed to open it now, or wait, what was proper etiquette when it came to receiving gifts?
