April Hogsmeade Weekend, 1999

Veril's blonde hair was pinned back. Spring was at foot and she was in an unusually peppy mood. Her purple eyes scanned the small village. She was bored with all the normal things, and she lay eyes on something she had probably overlooked in the past. It caught her eye, because her boyfriends last name was part of the sign. "Common word." she muttered to herself.

Veril had took on a shorter look today, and was wearing sandals, ripped jeans, and a blue tube top underneath an open long sleeved polo. She walked to the door and peered inside the window. She saw tobacco products and decided to walk in.

Veril was greeted by a blonde man with a monocle. "Hello kind Sir." She said, staring curiously at his monocle. He began a spiel. "Wait! Did you say Chance?" she asked. This was a little odd. Chance is a common American name, right? And maybe monocles are common there too. Veril though to herself. She put one hand in her pocket and felt her old cigarette case. Her other hand was swaying at her side. She seemed pleasant.

The kindly gentleman smiled as the girl came into his humble storefront. He was mostly through his rant when she stopped him.

"Huh? Oh, why, yes. Chance is my name, Simon Chance. Don't happen to know one of my relatives, do you? Because then it would be a very small world."

He quickly removed his monocle, cleaning it hastily before replacing it. He placed his palms on his counter, a friendly smile on his face.

"So, what can I do for you, then? I'm afraid the wines are a bit off limits, but I think you might just be old enough for the tobacco. If not try a cake, and the cider is to die for."

Veril looked at the tobaccos. She pulled out her cigarette case. It was rusted and falling apart. "Do you make muggle cigarette cases?" She asked. She avoided the mans eyes and sat her case on the counter. She also avoided his question.

He took the poor beat up case in his hands and surveyed it a bit. He thought to himself with a "Hmmm." He nodded to her before turning to his right and rummaging through some of the boxes there.

"Y'know, I don't usually carry them, but I think I have something that you might enjoy."

He stuck his whole head and arms into the box, searching until he came up with a small silver case. He set it on the counter, pushing it towards her. He leaned on his hand, supported by his elbow.

"Here. This is actually from one of my coworkers from back in the States. Apparently it belonged to some cocktail girl from the 30s. I never smoke cigarettes, so I just heaped it with the rest of my junk. But here, I suppose it'll do more good with you."

Veril smiled. She opened it. "It's perfect." she said. "My boyfriend makes Cider. . . he'd be mad if I bought some." She added. "I would like to take a better look at some of the hookahs you have though." Veril now looked up, her light purple eyes shining.

He grinned as he heard her words. He winked, nodding.

"I understand. We brewers understand how the world works, but if you're with a cidersmith, you're a lucky girl. I'm sure he's quite a catch."

He stepped out from behind the counter, his dusty lavender robes flowing around him. He walked her over to the tables.

"These on the tables are some of my personal collection. If you happen to be in the market for one, I can see about ordering one in for you. Or if you're really nice, I might see what I can do about crafting one for you."

He moved over to a large purple one.

"Ah... Here, try this. Pomegranate..."

Veril smiled. She tried the hookah. "Mmm, that is nice." she said. "I've actually got a male friend whom I'm looking for right now. Though a hookah of my own is quite tempting." she said. She avoided the mans eyes, scared she would see Silas if she looked into them.

He smiled happily as she seemed to enjoy the taste.

"Good to hear, good to hear. Oh? A present, then... Anything you can tell me about him to help guide us in the right direction?"

He looked to her inquisitively, his gray eyes shining brightly.

Veril smiled. "He's knows how to dress. He's a Ravenclaw. He isn't gay, but he is flamboyant. He is a flirt. Hmm, what else do you need to know Sir?" she asked.

He thought for a moment on the details she had given him. He wandered off a bit oddly, moving to his back room. He came back with a pair of cufflinks, each one a small conical flask.

"Well, this is about all I've got for a fancy man. I'm not sure how much your boy likes potions, but if he does, he might just fancy these..."

Veril smiled. Isa would like those, for hair things. "Those are lovely, I'd love to purchase them, but I should like to get him tobacco products." she said.

"Ahhh, right. Well, do you know if he likes bold flavors or tame flavors? Those matter quite a bit in tobacco. And I always recommend a pipe, it's the best way to enjoy it."

He grinned, nodding as he set the cufflinks into his pocket.

Veril looked at the hookahs. "I really think he would love a hookah, are you sure you don't want to sell me one?" she asked.

He looked to her, his eyes squinting a bit.

"Well, let me see... I have a smaller one in the back that's a reserve one. If you really really want a hookah and you really really want one today, I can sell you that one. What do you say?"

"I don't really need it today. I can wait." she said. "I would like to get a better idea though. . . and possibly order one." she added. I really hope this is a different Chance than Silas. . this guy is off his rocker. Veril thought.

Hey everyone. This is the first time I've been able to get on a computer for more than 3 minutes in the past month or so. I'm at school right now, and I don't have a computer at home.

The hard drive on my computer if fried and my parents wont let me use their computer (cause they suck!) I apologize to anyone who may have needed me, and should be getting my hard drive fixed within the next month.
