"Slugs and snails and puppy dog tails."
Luke was excited to spend some time away from work. In Hogwarts it was officially the Easter holidays, and while students still remained in the castle for this short break, anticipating the upcoming quidditch matches and studying for the approaching exams, he was allowed extra free time to wander and plan. As long as he was around for his assigned chaperoning and corridor patrolling duties, and made time to plan lessons for the exam season, that was it.
Today, he relished the freedom from the school as he waited on his old friend, wasting his time on another video game. Petra's time was a lot more demanded these days, she was a mother, wife, and auror, so Luke accepted that she might be late. It was difficult to say whether she actually was, video games could do that to a person, especially when that person hadn't even yet managed to stop long enough to put his foster-daughter to bed before his company arrived. The little girl instead watched him play his mildly violent adventure game from beside him on the sofa, slowly drifting off on his arm.
Eventually, the ex-Slytherin arrived. He'd asked her to apparate into their back garden and let herself in through the back door, in order to not wake up the toddler that should've been in bed as the sun had almost set. Luke heard the distant cracking noise before his friend had found her way through to the living room, he paused his game and carefully slid Maggie off of his arm. He got up from the sofa and met Petra halfway to the garden. The young woman had a similar look to her younger self: the same springy, silky hair and a wide grin, but she had a slightly more mature face now, as they all did except a few baby-faced ex-classmates. Luke couldn't help but greet her with a matching large smile, and a tight, silent hug. "Maggie's asleep on the sofa, I just have to take her up to her bed." he admitted, keeping his voice down. "Come in and make yourself comfortable, I'll be right back." He lead Petra through to the living room where the toddler was fast asleep, spread out across two seats.
The three year old stirred as Luke scooped her off of the sofa, but stayed asleep until she was tucked into her toddler bed upstairs and he'd kissed her forehead goodnight. He pulled the curtains closed, and drew up her bedroom door before heading back down to Petra with another grin. "Would you like a drink?" he offered now at a normal volume. "We have the usual stuff, everything from coffee to butterbeer... and loads of kid's stuff."

"Softness is not weakness."
The last sound she heard before closing the front door, to her house, was crying. Everything in her wanted to stay and make sure everything was okay. But when was the last time she had an evening to herself? Years ago before her first child was born. Now she wasn't sure what a fun evening was anymore. She spent most of every day working as an Auror and then when she came home. She was a mother and homemaker. Petra did not mind being a mom and a wife.
She deserved the night off. Though still hearing the crying was making it even more impossible to leave, but she had to tell herself that Tj had it. He was the father for crying out loud. He should be able to handle his own child. Well, she hoped he would be able too.
Arriving little later than what was planned, Petra apparated into Lucus's back garden. It has been a while since she had seen her school year's best friend. Petra missed those days of not having a care in the world and when she was a mother. Life was simpler and she didn't have responsibilities beyond, the ones of, being a Connor. As a mother, she was not only responsible for herself but responsible for her little spawns. She loved her children but they were terrors. She wasn't even sure how she manage them, half the time, but she did have help. Thank goodness for that.
Greeting Lucus with a smile, not wanting to wake a sleeping child with a voiced greetings, She followed Lucus into his kitchen. She looked around the cozy kitchen as he put his daughter in her bed.
It was strange knowing Lucus from school and seeing him now. A father. It wasn't that it didn't fit him. It was strange to think back to when they were both in school and their only care was if they were going to pass a big exam. Now they were adults with jobs and a family.
"Juice is fine," Petra answered as she leaned her elbows on the kitchen table. "You look good," She commented before hugging him again and getting a better look at him. It felt like ages since the last time they had seen each other. "Do you know how great it is to talk to another tall human beside Tj." She jokingly added but she was also being serious. She was done with having conversations that consisted of "No" and "because I say so".
