Arthur and Molly Weasley
Arthur was linked arms with his wife as they entered the Leaky Cauldron, wearing their finest muggle clothes. Arthur had his cloak draped over on arm, and smiled as Molly made her way to Diagon Alley. He then quickly looked around for Tonks, forgetting where he said he'd meet her. He then made his way to the bar and waited, hoping to remember.

Nymphadora Tonks
Tonks hurried down the stairs from her room, hoping that she wasn't so late that Arthur would have left. She sighed in relief as she spotted him over by the bar, and, straightening out the green cloak she'd decided to wear, she headed over to him.
"Arthur! I was worried you would leave," she said as she came up beside him, smiling.

Arthur Weasley
"No worries, I've only just gotten here, Molly made me a tad bit late. She went ahead to go get some Floo powder, we're almost out." He added with a cheerful touch.

Nymphadora Tonks
"I hope she'll be back before I go, I was looking forward to seeing her," Tonks said as she took a butterbeer from Tom. "Shall we go get a seat?"

Arthur Weasley
"She will be, she said she wanted to see you too." He then stood, nodded, and headed to the back of the pub, where no one was sitting and sat down. "This was reserved for us, so our conversation wouldn't be heard. Molly said she'll join us in a few minutes."

Nymphadora Tonks
"Wonderful," she said, sitting down. For a moment she was silent,
sipping her drink, and then she looked at Arthur again. "Is there any news yet?"

Arthur Weasley
"Not since Diagon Alley, there have been a few smaller attacks, but they were nonetheless mournful events." His expression was grave. "We don't have the total count of injuries and deaths for the past week yet. Probably around..." He thought for a moment as if counting the ones he knew about. "One dead six injured. We don't know for certain yet." Tom came over and set a drink on the table, Arthur nodded, and Tom left.

Nymphadora Tonks
"That's...alot more than I thought," Tonks said quietly. "The attacks seem to be getting more frequent."

Arthur Weasley
"Yes.. they do." He took a sip of the drink that Tom gave him. "It's getting to be almost as dangerous as the last time this happened.

Nymphadora Tonks
"Or more." She sighed. "I wish the deaths would stop altogether, though."

Arthur Weasley
"So does everyone else." He considered what to say. "It's different from the last time. In some ways..." He paused. "...It's more dangerous, but in most it's not as dangerous." He paused once more. "The death count is about the same, the attacks are more surprising, and random, but not as many muggles, muggleborns, and halfbloods are being attacked. More of just the important people against the cause. Which is why the random encounters, Diagon Alley wasn't just used as a diversion. Voldemort is powerful enough to overthrow Azkaban alone without needing a diversion..." He trailed off.

Nymphadora Tonks
Tonks looked down at the table, at the water rings on the wood. Unnoticeably her eyes turned from blue to a dark grey colour. "I wish Voldemort had never come." She looked up, smiling sheepishly. "I'm sorry, Arthur; I probably sound like a child."

Arthur and Molly Weasley
He thought a moment. "No, everyone acts one way or another, unlike to their own character, at one point in there life, just your mind in denial of what happened, hoping that it would go away... I've acted the same." He too another sip of his drink. "Nothing wrong with it." He smiled grimly. At that moment, Molly walked towards them, smiling with a bag slung from one shoulder.

Nymphadora Tonks
"Molly!" Tonks exclaimed happily as she stood and stepped forward to hug her. "Find anything good in the shops?"

Molly Weasley
"'Lo Tonks." She smiled as she hugged her. "Fairly decent priced books on gardening." She said pointing to her bag. "And the Floo powder just keeps getting more expensive doesn't it?"

Arthur Weasley
Arthur looked up from his drink. "Hallo Dear." He got up and kissed her adoringly on the cheek, and smiled.

Nymphadora Tonks
"Almost too much for a person on an auror's salary to pay for," Tonks said, smiling. "I only have a small jar of it left. For emergencies, of course. I'll be apparating if I'm going anywhere." She turned to Arthur again. "Tell me...did Dumbledore say anything about whether I was still needed here?"

Arthur Weasley
Arthur shook his head. "I haven't heard much more from Dumbledore than you have. It's best to stay put, Dumbledore doesn't forget where any of us are stationed, if he wants you somewhere else, he'll tell you in person. He likes to keep up informed as best as he can, right now he's at somewhat of an overload."

Molly Weasley
Molly nodded in agreement. "He'll most likely contact you soon. If you need to speak with him contact him by owl. He'll respond as quickly as possible."

Nymphadora Tonks
"Well...that's the thing. I did send him and owl, but...nothing." Tonks sighed. "I hope he's alright."
Arthur Weasley
"He's fine, I saw him yesterday, though he did look a bit peckish, and it looks like the poor man hasn't slept easily for a week or so, unfortunately I didn't get to speak with him, he was hurrying through the halls to his office." Arthur sighed.

Nymphadora Tonks
She nodded. "And the rest of the order? Are they still posted nearby?"

Arthur and Molly Weasley
"I suppose so." Arthur said unknowingly as Molly slid in beside him in the booth.

Nymphadora Tonks
"You two must be busy, with Percy's wedding coming up and all."

Arthur and Molly Weasley
Arthur tensed his jaw at the mention of Percy's wedding, thinking about what Percy had confided in him. "Yes, extremely busy, we'll be providing for it. Penny's parents offered to help but... Molly doesn't feel like bothering them with it." Molly glared at Arthur. Arthur raised his eyebrow in exchange.

Nymphadora Tonks
"Wonderful. I'm sure it will be fun. I hope Penelope decides to invite me." Tonks grinned, not noticing the twinge on Arthurs face. "Maybe I'll finally meet a good wizard, instead of those awful muggle 'punks' that always approach me about my hair." She shook her head.

Molly Weasley
"Oh she will dear, she's inviting everyone in the order and more." Molly piped in.

Nymphadora TonksShe finished her drink. "It will be funny to see the look on Percivals face as he says his vows," she chuckled. "Well...I've caught up with order happenings, and I suppose you two have to get back to the burrow..."

Arthur Weasley
"Yeah..." Arthur said, trailing off. "We best get back to the burrow, I'm a bit tuckered out myself..." He finished, Molly nodding and slid out of the booth, Arthur following.

Nymphadora Tonks

Tonks stood as well. "I'll see you two soon," she said quietly, hugging Molly again and shaking Arthur's hand lightly. "Stay safe."

Arthur and Molly Weasley
"You too." Molly said smiling. They both walked out of the Leaky Cauldron, and disappeared down the street.
