Part One / Part Two / Part Three / Part Four / Part Five
There was only a light flurry of snow when they arrived in London, although there were threatening clouds above. Harry and Severus led the way through the packed street, nodding to familiar faces and replying politely to greetings as they went. They ushered the children quickly past what appeared to be a drunk, naked Santa, passed out in a side alley, a Santa hat over his bits. Harry wasn’t too sure how he would explain that one to Lily.
“Okay,” Harry said cheerfully. “Where to first?” A jumble of voices instantly responded.
“I suggest we split up to make the most of our time before the weather worsens,” Severus said. “You take the James to the Quidditch shop while I take these two to the sweet shop, then we can meet at the Weasley establishment afterwards. Is that agreeable, Lily?” he asked, looking down at her.
She seemed to consider his proposal, and then shrugged. “I guess so. I like sweets, too.”
Harry hid a grin as he laid a hand on James’ shoulder. “Okay, we’ll see you in a little while then.”
A moment later they had melted into the crowd.
