 Sabrina had just gotten to Diagon Alley with her father and her best friend, Reid. She had been spending plenty of time with Reid recently, but that was completely normal for her. This was the first time she's introduced him to her dad, though, so it was kind of different. She was awkward, and chose her words carefully. The last thing she needed was people assuming she was crushing on Reid. She doubted he would enjoy 21-questions as much as one would hope. The group was supposed to go on a planned-out route, but Sabrina was quick to dart off in the direction of Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, dragging Reid along after her. 

 The red-haired girl had only been to Diagon Alley once before, and she had the privilege of visiting the Joke Shop before. It amazed her, and it was definitely the first place she wanted to show Reid. She tugged open the door and burst through into the miraculously huge building, her eyes instantly looking up towards the ceiling. 

 Weasley's Wizard Wheezes was a colourful place, full of plenty of wonders. Sabrina's favourite things were the pranks, obviously, but they also sold potions, and some other things. As one would be able to tell, she didn't pay attention to much else. The place made her was to visit the ice cream parlour later on. Maybe dad would let them this time, now that she had a friend too? She shrugged off the thought, and looked next to her at Reid, a grin spreading across her face.

 "Come on!" She urged, letting go of his hand which she had been holding to drag him in there and making her way through the crowd of people. A few people were her age, she could tell, but she had no particular desire to interact with them at the moment. She approached a shelf, and pulled off a Headless Hat, and pulled it onto her head, looking over at her friend with a laugh, "Does it work?"

today you are the fire

The two had been friends throughout their childhood so Darren had heard quite a bit about Reid. Though this was his first time meeting the boy, he felt like he had known him for a long time already. They were on a tight schedule as he had to get back to help a professor wrangle up some of the creatures in the forest. It was during this time, before school officially started back that they had a responsibility to get the dangerous creatures off the grounds, refer them to the Department for Regulation and Control for Magical Creatures at the Ministry. He turned, about to comment on their schedule but saw that they were no where to be found. Where did they run off to?

A quick looked around the Alley made a light bulb go off in his brain. Of course, they had just gone past the joke shop. He followed them in by only a minute, watching his daughters antics before turning to the shelves. The Weasleys kept a variety of stock, even the classics that he had grown up with. Though some of them he didn't remember with fondness at all. Being the quiet, studious student hadn't earned him many friends while in school. Some had taken his shy nature as snobbishness, considering the family that he had come from. He wasn't surprised after a few years and eventually gave up trying to prove otherwise. People would believe what they wanted to and that was that.

"Is this your first time at the joke shop, Reid?" Darren asked, wondering if he had ever been to Diagon Alley with any of his family members. He couldn't remember exactly but he didn't think that the boy was only a muggle-born. Even after years of being away from his elitist family, it slipped up on him every once in a while where he would have to remind himself that was he was thinking was taught to him. No one thought these sort of things unless they were learned. He wasn't his parents nor was he what they expected him to grow up to be, and he would consider that a win.
