A "Damsel" in Distress  
"That'll be fifteen galleons." The witch hands me the money and I give her the purchases. She chose some good ones. She said it would be used at a party and it's one I would go to. Though, if I were there, no one would be able to outprank me. A fact that was proven when Percy and I went out for pints. However, he actually found some of it funny, when usually he would have gotten mad. At one point, he said I went too far, which I told him isn't possible. The pranks haven't caused death or loss of limp yet.

I watch her leave then check the clock. It's a bit past closing, but I wasn't about to rush her. You can't rush picking the perfect prank. Now it is time to decide what to do next. Today, I decide to go to the Leaky Cauldron for something to eat. I usually go in a few times a week. Especially days like today when I end up working late.

I lock up the store and head for the Leaky Cauldron. I doubt I will have to order anything. Tom knows what I like and usually just choses one of those meals. I like the surprise.

I enter and see that it's not too busy to get a table, but it's clearly the dinner rush. I glance around and choose a table. I can wait a bit for a drink and food. I'm not in a hurry. Instead, I watch the people around the Leaky Cauldron. I get a lot of ideas for inventions by watching people. Usually watching someone and taking it a bit further, but it works well.

As I look around, I notice Tom seems to be a bit busy with one witch. He has the look of being slightly frustrated, but also appears to be actng kind to her. She on the other hand looks frustrated as well, but there seems to be an urgency to her. I can't hear the conversation, but from the way he's shaking her head and the sudden panic lighting up in her, it's not good.

I get to my feet. Tom's busy so I will go up and order my food and maybe see what's wrong with that witch. She not a regular here.

"Wonderful. You start tomorrow, bright and early," I grin. It will help to have someone else at the store, for busy times.

She eyes me with a mixture of gratitude and wariness. "Thank you."

"You're welcome. Want to see the store?"

"I might as well, considering I'll be working there," She says, offering me a tentative smile.

"Tom, I'll be back for the food," I tell him, getting up from the bar. I hadn't intended on getting an employee, but maybe it will help.

He nods, and she gets out of her chair. She looks at Tom, offers an apology and turns to me. "I don't think anyone else would have done what you're doing."

"Call me a knight in shining armor," I laugh.
