Rating: Probably around a PG? No clue, really.


Ginny chewed on her thumbnail and puttered aimlessly around the living area of her flat. It was finally clean (no thanks to a completely welcome visit by a certain Irish gentleman), and she was expecting Hermione and Tonks any minute. It'd been forever since Hermione and Ginny had seen Tonks, and the reunion promised to be entertaining. Plus, Ginny really couldn't wait to show off her newly acquired tattoo. She was had a good idea Hermione would feign disappointment, and that Tonks would heartily approve. Now if only the damn thing would stop itching.

Ginny reached back to pat lightly on the healing skin (she'd been warned severely against scratching by both the vampire who'd done the tattoo, and Seamus) and then settled onto the sofa, reaching for a magazine. She began flipping through the pages at random with one hand and set the other against the sofa cushion, wiggling her fingers and grinning when Belle pounced on them, gnawing gently on Ginny's fingertips. Hopefully Hermione and Tonks would arrive before Belle had time to completely devour her owner's hand.

This should be the right place, thought Tonks. She went through the map in her mind once again and was fairly sure she was where she should be.
She knocked on the door of what was hopefully Ginny's place.

Ginny tossed her magazine onto an end table and shooed Belle off the sofa when she heard the knock. She expected it would be Hermione, but was thrilled to see Tonks' grinning face instead. It'd been far too long!

"Hi Tonks!" Ginny said loudly, pulling the older woman inside and hugging her. "Did you find the place alright?"
4th-May-2006 02:47 pm (UTC)
A little surprised by the big hug, Tonks said, "yes, actually, I did. Your directions were pretty easy to follow."

Tonks tried to peak in over Ginny's shoulder. "Hermione not here yet? Ha. I can't believe I beat her to something. Even if it's something as small as this." She couldn't help grinning at her own little joke.
4th-May-2006 08:40 pm (UTC)
"No, she's not here yet, but I expect she'll be along soon... probably got distracted by an article," Ginny shrugged. She was completely used to Hermione's obsession over her work. Realizing they were still standing in the doorway, Ginny stepped back and beckoned Tonks in.

"Make yourself comfortable, you don't mind cats do you?" She asked as Belle wandered in, probably to sniff at the newcomer and then scamper off again in search of something to destroy.

Hermione was indeed late, but it wasn't an article that had her occupied. Instead, she was finishing up a letter to Ronald which she sent off by owl as soon as she was done before realizing that she was well behind on the time and rushed down the street to Ginny's flat, pulling on her shoes as she went.

"Sorry, sorry,' she said, a bit pink in the face as she bounded through the door, nearly knocking Ginny over.
5th-May-2006 02:18 am (UTC)
Ginny jumped out the way as Hermione to came hurtling through the door. "Where's the fire, Mione?" She laughed. "Tonks only just got here, you're not late."
5th-May-2006 01:11 pm (UTC)
"Thanks. No, I don't mind cats at all. D'you know Neville has a cat too? She's really cute, especially when she's hanging from the curtains..."

Tonks smiled and let herself fall into a chair, looking around.

"Nice place you got here, how long have you been living here?"
5th-May-2006 01:15 pm (UTC)
Tonks fell quiet when she saw a woman... well, bounce more than walk into the room. She grinned. It had been ages.

"Hermione! Long time! Someone chasing you? Should I go out and knock him down? What's the rush?"
5th-May-2006 07:03 pm (UTC)
"Hello, Tonks!" she said, sweeping the older woman into her arms in a friendly greeting embrace. "It's been too long in my opinion."

When she pulled back she chuckled softly. "No need to throw punches. I was just... er, preoccupied with some writing is all. Didn't want to keep the two of you waiting!"
5th-May-2006 07:22 pm (UTC)
"Are you sure? I'd love to punch someone, it'd be no trouble at all!" Tonks smiled. "It's really great to see you and yes, it has been too long. How've you been holding up?"
5th-May-2006 07:39 pm (UTC)
"I don't think Ronald would fancy a punch," Hermione said with a smile as she plopped down on Ginny's couch and pulled Belle into her lap.
5th-May-2006 07:44 pm (UTC)
"Ronald, as in my git of a brother, Ronald?" Ginny arched an eyebrow at Hermione. OF course, she'd already heard everything from her brother, but she was looking forward to Hermione's side of the story. "What were you doing with him?"
5th-May-2006 07:49 pm (UTC)
Hermione's smile broadened and she avoided eye contact with both other of the females in the room after Ginny's questioning.

"Just... writing him a note. And your brother is not a git," she said defensively.
5th-May-2006 07:55 pm (UTC)
"Right," Ginny replied skeptically. She fixed Hermione with a look that clearly said 'I know you're not telling me everything, and you can expect me to drag it out of you later.' Deciding to leave the topic alone, for now, Ginny took a seat on the couch. Time for a subject change, she thought.

"So, what've you been up to, Tonks?"
5th-May-2006 08:21 pm (UTC)
"Ronald? Ron? Ron Weasley? How on earth is he doing? I haven't seen him in ages! Are you..."

Tonks raised an eyebrow. "Did the two of you finally end up together or what? I heard something about a howler in the office? I wasn't there at the time but Neville told me it was quite a circus!"

Looking at Ginny, Tonks replied, "I've been up to... well, nothing much, really. All work and no play. You're probably not going to believe this but the only people I've seen outside of work lately are Neville and his friend Ryan."
6th-May-2006 10:13 pm (UTC)
"Ron's fine," Ginny answered for Hermione. From what she'd heard, Ron was definitely a bit more than fine, but that wasn't her business to tell.

"Yeah, Neville said he'd been out with you a few times. Are you two dating?" Ginny winced as soon as the words left her mouth. Sometimes she had absolutely no tact.
7th-May-2006 12:44 am (UTC)
Tonks couldn't help laughing. "Dating? Neville and me?" She wanted to say more but some half acknowledged thought in the back of her head distracted her. It was trying to tell her something she wasn't ready to face yet. She sighed.

"I suppose you can say we're friends. He's been through some changes lately, I'm still getting used to that. He's good company, though. What about you," said Tonks, changing the subject. "I hear you've been seeing an awful lot of Seamus lately. Maybe even literally speaking," she winked.
8th-May-2006 04:04 am (UTC)
"You.. where did you hear that?" Ginny blushed violently. She had definitely been seeing a lot of Seamus lately, but not in that way. At least... not yet.

"I mean... yeah. We've been out together a few times, I like him. He took me to get a tattoo last week." She fumbled over her words, trying to think of something that didn't give away too much. The whole thing between her and Seamus was still new, after all. Even she wasn't quite sure what was going on between them.
8th-May-2006 12:14 pm (UTC)
For a moment, Tonks was torn between two options. Prod some more and find out what was really going on, or be a good friend and let it be for the time being. She decided on the second option and changed the subject.

"You've got a tattoo? Where? Show me!"
8th-May-2006 05:36 pm (UTC)
Ginny was extremely grateful for the change of topic. She turned around and lifted the hem of her shirt a bit, exposing a japanese kanji on the small of her back.
9th-May-2006 02:58 pm (UTC)
"Wow! That looks amazing! Where did you have it done? I've been thinking about getting a tattoo myself but I don't know where to go."

Tonks looked closely. The tattoo really did look good. She eyed Hermione for a moment, wondering what she would think of this. Somehow she still didn't look the body mutilating kind.
