IN THE LAST YEAR OR so, Calliope Fleming felt her life had done a complete one-eighty. Firstly she had finally quit that ridiculous job at St Mungos, and earned enough from both her legal and illegal work to save for an apartment of her own, far from the stress of her dysfunctional family. Secondly, she managed to obtain her Magizoolist title once more, becoming an apprentice in order to work towards the official title. And thirdly, she had met the one person aside from her odd friends and siblings that made her feel comfortable and warm no matter how much time they spent together or even apart. That person of course being Cara Bainbridge. But these were all accomplishments gathered under a year or two.
While the first few goals initially caused issues, Cal didn't mind at all, and simply continued living her life. She worked less as a Black Market merchant however, as her apprenticeship filled most of her time and covered enough of the bills to be somewhat satisfied with. Though with Christmas rolling around, she picked up an odd shift here and there, using her ability to manipulate her way into various sales in order to gather enough Galleons to fund a little Christmas get-away for herself and Cara, that is if the latter accepted.
Yet, thats what brought the Metamorphmagus all the way to Godric's Hollow, to ask her..friend? Girlfriend? Significant other? If she would happily spend Christmas in a city, or country or two away, especially with what chaos that year had brought them. Cara had only mentioned her family home a few times, with the middle Fleming noting that the inside seemed to be filled with chaos as most of the family were home now. It was one of the reasons Cara would prefer to spend her evenings with Cal before heading home for the night if she didn't stay over. But since Calliope knew it was one of the Bainbridge's off days, she decided to pay her a visit instead of sending an Owl or text.
Walking up the steps to the house, Calliope knocked a few times before stepping back and waiting for someone to open the door.
