Alice walked into the small bar and caught Frank’s eye. She grinned at him as they made their way through the crowd towards each other. Pulling her into a hug his lips grazed her ear. ”You’re best dress?” He murmured softly. Alice grinned and pressed her lips to his cheek, nodding. ”My very best dress.” She whispered against his cheek.
They each pulled back and Alice glanced around the room. ”It looks wonderful Frankie.” She laced her fingers through his and walked with him up to the bar. She ordered a firewhiskey with a sigh of relief, knowing that she had nothing to give up drinking for. ”Have you talked with anyone?” She asked as they turned and faced the crowd.
"Not yet, Tom has had me working." Shaking her head Alice turned and smiled back at the barman. "He’s mine for the rest of the night you know?" Tom smiled and laughed at the pair in front of him.
"That is why he was working until you got here" Alice grinned and turned back to Frank, only to see he had been snagged by another Hufflepuff from his year who wanted to catch up. Shaking her head Alice looked through the crowd for the familiar red hair that belonged to Molly and Arthur. Not seeing them she turned next to her to see Benjy sitting next to her staring across the bar. Smiling she looked at him.
"Hey Benjy, how’ve you been?"
