It was a bright, beautiful and warm July day in London, and Susan had the day off of work seeing as it was Saturday. Andy was off somewhere, and her siblings had other things to do, so Susan decided to spend her day at the London Zoo. It had been a long time since she had ventured into the zoo; she was curious how being an intern in the Magical Creatures department at the Ministry would change her perspective on zoos and animals in captivity. She knew from her relatives who were chairpeople of the Zoo Charity Foundation that they believed in ethical treatment of their animals, and that they couldn’t be released back into the wild. Susan wasn’t so sure on that last one, if she was being honest.
She took the Tube up to the Zoo, a big floppy straw hat and sunglasses blocking her face from the public. She had nowhere near the notoriety of her darling older brother Will, but she still was recognized in the street from time to time. She gave up her seat for an elderly woman, holding onto the pole with the lightest of touch, making sure to swab her hands with Purell once she got off the tube. She paid the fare to get in; as a royal and a supporter of the zoo, she theoretically didn’t HAVE to pay, but she wanted to fly under the radar this visit. She made her way immediately towards the Butterfly paradise; although butterflies were so small, they were delicate and exotic in their own ways, which made Susan love them so much. If she had been paying attention as she walked towards the exhibit, she would have noticed someone familiar come up alongside her, but she was withdrawn into her own thoughts that until someone said hello, she had no idea she wasn’t alone.
