The Calm Before The Storm
Only a few more days to go.

Cecilia silently nibbled on her muffin as the bar around her bustled. It was weird, really, how not too long from now, this place would be holding twice or thrice the amount of people currently present. Thus was the effect of the first week of classes. Some parents would stay here to be close to their children, while some business men came back for the "student season" as they called it.

As a professor and head of house, Cecilia was obligated to be at Hogwarts early, and thus was able to see the jarring transition. This term though, she'd felt like she was the only one who'd done so. She hadn't seen hide nor hair from her fellow heads of houses or her other fellow professors. She'd seen the occasional person (like Pippy, that was still a surprise), but nothing like her previous years. She silently wondered if there was something going on that she didn't know about.

Shaking her head in wonder, she turned her attention to the door as she heard the bell above it tinkle..

As a rule, Malik very rarely found himself in Hogsmeade during the school year, but having spent the last half of the summer holed up in his office, he now had nothing in the way of work to use as an excuse to recluse himself from human contact. While the events of the last few days still weighed heavily on his mind, he decided on that bright morning to evanesce from the increasingly claustrophobic air of the castle and make the trek into town for some fresh air.

He was rather fond of the sweet shop, after all.

So it was with a surprisingly large bag from Honeydukes that the professor shouldered his way into the tavern, fresh-shaved and neatly pressed as he often was. His dark eyes crinkled with a smile as he spotted Cecilia, and Malik paused in the doorway to wave, nearly bowled over by a large, round man with a ginger beard who stopped to apologize profusely in a thick slur about the ale spilled on Malik's shoes.

Once disentangled from the polite confrontation, Malik skirted the tables and headed for a stool beside Cecilia, whom he had not seen since summer began. A sweet girl, he thought, perfectly suited to her profession.

"Miss Brisbane, what a pleasure," he greeted brightly, setting down his haul of sweets to offer a polite hug before taking a seat. "You're back early. Ready for the madness, then?"

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM
It was Malik.

Cecilia watched, almost rising in worry when Malik bumped into a particularly burly man who seemed to be quite drunk. She'd dealt with large, drunk men before and despite her notorious pacifist nature, she knew how to handle herself in those situations. Luckily though, there didn't seem to be much of a confrontation to worry about as Malik easily extracted himself from the man and headed towards her, all smiles and cheer.

"Miss Brisbane, what a pleasure," he intoned, leaving a noticeably large bag on the table before offering a hug, which she readily took along with murmuring a greeting of her own. She peeked at the bag, wondering what it was that her colleague had been shopping for.

"You're back early. Ready for the madness, then?" he continued before she could ask. She shook her head and laughed, responding in a highly amused tone.

"Who is ever ready for this?" she asked, referring to the onslaught the students would no doubt put them through. She loved her students, but they had a knack for making her head pound after less than 24 hours with them. Still, she quite liked her job, and she was good at it too, so she wouldn't trade it in for anything else.

"What do you have there?" she finally said, getting to her curiosity as to what he had in his bag. She honestly had no guess as to what he was lugging to the castle, but she was definitely curious.

Malik reached over and patted the bag proudly before waving down the innkeeper. "It's my secret weapon against wily students," he said, leaning forward on the counter to order a cup of coffee and a crumpet or two. It was still early in the day and he hadn't bothered to grab breakfast before heading into town, but now his stomach grumbled unpleasantly at him and Cecilia's half-nibbled muffin didn't do anything to quiet it.

All the same, Malik reached into the bag with a quiet rustle and withdrew a packet of brightly colored jelly slugs, which he tore open and offered to her with ease. Of all the staff at Hogwarts, Malik had to admit he was most comfortable with Cecilia, likely due to her quite obviously gentle nature. Where most people had a tendency to put him on edge, Cecilia did the opposite, and for that Malik was quite pleased to spend time with the woman.

"I tend to be in a better mood with my sweet tooth sated," he explained, plucking one of the golden slugs from the bag and tearing it in half with his teeth while he waited for his coffee. "It's in the students' best interest, really. The odds of a surprise essay are immensely lower when there's chocolate in my desk drawer."
