Cecelia didn't much like Knockturn Alley, but it was a place where she could wear a long cloak that covered most of her face and not be regarded suspiciously. It was dusk, so she wouldn't need the full-body cloak for much longer, but it was probably for the better; Cece didn't exactly want to advertise she was back in the country. Not that she had anything to hide, but she'd rather not have people breathing down her neck if she could help it. Elaine knew, of course, but the rest of the Purifiers didn't have to. She only sent an owl to Fin informing him of her return because there was something she wanted to discuss with him, and she wasn't comfortable doing it via letter. Sensitive information was better when it was in the right hands.
She had asked Fin to meet in Knockturn partially because it was easier to get away with her cloak, but also because people in Knockturn tended to mind their own business. In Diagon, people would be tempted to eavesdrop. Here, people knew eavesdropping often came with a price. Cece wasn't concerned Fin would be late, so she was relaxed as she leaned against one of the brick walls of the alley.
