Cecelia had just returned from France. It had taken a series of Floo network hops to her her across the English Channel, and then she had Apparated into the Leaky Cauldron. She hadn't wanted to disturb anyone's peace - it was nearly midnight and she had a feeling most sensible people would be asleep this late on a weeknight. she was hoping one particular person was awake, though.
Cecelia had kept in touch with Grey as much as she could in France, but it was difficult when she couldn't tell him her real reason for returning there. She had given a half-baked story about being closer to her parents and needing to see the stars from a place with less light pollution. Whether or not he had believed her was a different story, but giving false updates about her parents (whom she hadn't actually spoken to since Desirae's death) and vague comments about how viewing the stars felt wrong. The truth was out of the question, as it always was, but she hoped it hadn't been enough to drive him away.
She was also hoping he hadn't moved. Cece doubted Grey would do such a thing without telling her, but nerves prickled through her anyways. She hadn't told him her precise date of return, in case it needed to be changed, so this was a bit of a surprise, too. Cecelia couldn't stall any longer, though. She knocked.
