Alicia hadn't thought twice about the fact that Fred had to alter their plans. She had made quite a tradition of spending Valentine's Day alone, though as sad as that may sound, it really wasn't. The day was notorious for being one set aside for lovers, and what greater lover did she have apart from chocolates and alcohol? Her flatmates of course made an appearance, which was welcomed greatly. Truth be told, she definitely couldn't hold anything against Fred. If anything, he encouraged her evasive behavior. Spending Valentine's Day out on the town, whether with a friend or flying solo, would've felt awkward to say the least. It would've put a horrible kink in that cush she had surrounded herself with.
After cleaning herself up a bit following a long day at the Ministry, Alicia traveled by floo to the Leaky Caulrdon. If she had judged correctly, she allowed for enough time that her mate should've been awaiting her arrival. Licie always hated trying to pass time waiting for others. She never quite knew what to do with herself, which usually resulted in drinking simply to calm the nerves. Wiping the excess floo powder off her clothes, Alicia made her way downstairs into the pub where she quickly spotted that familiar fiery hair. "Great Godric, it's been a while since I've seen the likes of you around these parts," she called out while walking down the stairs, warranting some awkward staring on behalf of the strangers.
"Good to see you, Fred," she added in a softer voice once she was within closer range of the boy.
