It's time for a little rest and recuperation. After a tumultuous schoolyear culminating in coordinated attacks upon both Hogwarts and London, magical citizens could certainly use a break. Summer is upon us, and while the immediate danger has passed, not every creature is taking the summer off.
JUNE 19TH - JULY 13TH NOW OPEN

Summer was three weeks old by now, and Robin still wasn’t sleeping properly. The nightmares weren’t quite as vivid as they had been in the days following the attack on the school, but they were still waking her up more often than she was going to admit. The chunk of hair she’d lost wasn’t too visible at least, especially after a visit to the hairdresser back home in Scotland, and she was getting much better at pretending nothing was wrong.
The best way to get back to normal was to get back to racing, and she’d thrown herself back into her pre-magical sport without hesitation. This weekend had been another round of one of her karting championships, the second one since she’d got home. This of course meant she was still incredibly rusty compared with her peers, who’d been racing all year while she’d been squirrelled away at hogwarts, which was her excuse for not managing to come in better than fifth place.
Evening had rolled in, the event was finished, and her dad had driven the two of them back to the hotel they were crashing in tonight before the long, long drive back home. Six hours in the van was not something she was looking forward to, especially if she had to put up with his singing. Kylie did not deserve that.
Once he’d parked up, she’d asked if she could go for a wander to try and get the smell of tyres and exhaust out of her throat, and maybe go find herself some dinner. Thankfully her dad was fine with it, and off she went. There was a mcdonalds not far from the hotel, and what she really needed after an exhausting day of not winning anything was the least healthy thing she could find this side of the border. The English weren’t going to deep fry a pizza, so she was going to have to make do with terrible, terrible burgers.
With a big mac, chips, a creme egg mcflurry and a coke on her tray she wandered away from the till into the mostly empty restaurant. She was sunburnt, exhausted, probably filthy with bits of tyre and who knew what else, but she wasn’t expecting to see anyone familiar in the place so really didn’t care. Right up until she spotted Will.
Unsure if the Hufflepuff had spotted her, or recognised her in a slightly too big Westfall Racing t-shirt and baseball cap, she paused for a moment before starting towards him. He was the first person from hogwarts she’d seen since leaving the station that day, the first magical friend she’d had a chance to speak to since the slaughter on the lake. She couldn’t ignore him, even if she was exhausted and filthy.
“Hey Will.” she said, slightly nervously as she approached him. “Mind if I join you? I wasn’t expecting to run into anyone from school today.” she added, trying not to sound quite as tired as she felt. “How’ve you been? I mean...since....y’know…” She wasn’t usually this awkward, but how did you talk about something so traumatic even with someone who’d been through it too? Did she even want to, or would it be better for both of them to just pretend everything was as normal as it had been the last time they’d spoken?
And why was she feeling shy about talking to him? He was just a boy, what did they know about anything?

Talking with his father had helped, just a tad bit. It sucked to know that the world was full of people who wished somebody else to be dead and that Will had to find out the hard way, through a train crash and an Inferi attack. The nightmares were so vivid and although they had lessened after talking to his father about the horrors of it; the memory of him nearly dragged into the deep waters is the very thing that plagued him until this day.
With their parents away at work, his big brother had decided to treat the both of them to Macdonald. Living near Birmingham certainly had its perks since they lived just on the edge of the city while within the suburbs of it and with Jonathan being able to drive, they managed to make it to the city in about half an hour. They found a fairly empty carpark and an empty Macdonald's at it, which meant that they could somewhat bask in the silence of the city.
As his brother went to buy their meals, Will sat patiently in the seat they had found, staring blankly into space before a curtain of red entered his vision and he found himself staring at a familiar red-haired girl.
"Robin?" he asked, surprised to run into somebody from school. He found himself panicking inwardly, remembering that he found her quite pretty when they were back in school. They had known each other for a while and he knew her because of El since they were from the same house. Robin reminded him of one of those Weasley kids he had seen around before but they weren't from the same gene pool at all.
"Join us. I don't think my brother would mind," he said, although in his heart he knew he wasn't sure.
