Who: Regulus and Emmeline
When: Dinner
Where: Kitchen
Why: Detention :-(


Regulus sighed as he made his way downstairs to the kitchen. He couldn't believe that he had gotten detention in the first place, let alone that it would require him back in the kitchen, and listening to <i>house elves</i>. He scratched the back of his head, hair still slightly damp from his post-practice shower. He would probably need another one after this.

He tickled the pear and followed the path into the kitchen where the house elves were busy preparing dinner for the masses. At least they seemed as uncomfortable with his presence as he was being there.

Emma was running a little late and arrived at the kitchens after Regulus. "Hey," she said softly as she came in. She smiled softly at him. She still felt bad that they were stuck there during a meal. It had been her idea that got them detention in the first place.

"Hi," He replied, running one hand through his hair, "They don't seem very happy that we're here..."

Regulus blinked as a house elf tugged on his pants and then directed him to a table covered in potatoes and a peeler. "Great..." He said with a sigh.

"No, they really don't." She watched him get directed to the potatoes.

One directed her to a pot to stir, not too far from Regulus. "Sorry again about all this," she said softly.

Regulus carefully picked up the peeler, "It isn't your fault," He replied, "I didn't think it was a big deal honestly. Besides, I agreed to come. It's just as much my fault."

Emma smiled softly. "Not exactly what I would have picked for our second date," she teased softly.

"I don't know why not," He said with a smile, "Terribly romantic, I would think. The house elves, the food, leaving the place smelling like potatoes..."

Regulus chuckled, "Ok, you're right. We can definately do better than this."

She giggled softly as she stirred what appeared to be some kind of sauce. "Our next will be better, I'm sure."

Emma kept glancing at him over her shoulder. "I think I like seeing you in the kitchen."

So she's definately assuming there will be future dates... That's good Regulus thought, smiling.

"Now don't go saying things like that," He said, "You'll ruin my image. Remember, I don't cook. That's probably why all they have me doing is peeling potatoes. And I'm ruining even this."

Sure enough the few potatoes he had managed to peel looked ridiculous, some with bits of the skin still on them.

She laughed. "Relax. I'm sure they're just going to be mashed up." She lifted the spoon and tested the sauce with her finger. "Mmm, this is going to be good."

Regulus grumbled and continued peeling, "Remind me not to eat the mashed potatoes tonight..." He looked over at her eating the soup, "Sure, you get the good stuff. I see how it is."

She smiled and wiped some sauce on her index finger. "Here, taste it." She leaned over and offered her finger to him.

Regulus blushed slightly but leaned over licked the sauce off her finger.

"That is good," He teased, "But it's got this weird Emma-aftertaste."

She rolled her eyes, but she was smiling as she went back to the sauce. "Keep that up and I'll make sure you never get to have any of this sauce."

"I might," she said. Emma glanced over her shoulder and smiled at him. "Then again I might not. You should be nice to me." She winked.

She turned back to her sauce as a house elf came over and took the sauce away to put into what ever it was going to be. They directed her to help Regulus. "Really?"

"No, probably not, but I'll keep trying," Regulus said as he finished peeling yet another potato, "Merlin, how many of these are we going to have to peel? Surely we don't need this many?"

She laughed softly. "There are a lot of hungry students up there." Emma smiled warmly at him as she continued to peel.

"There's a hungry student right down here," He said looking around, "Wonder if they'll let us go up to eat for dinner or if we have to cook through the whole meal?"

"Well, I'd admit that the company would be better than at the Slytherin table," He said with a grin, "So I guess no, it wouldn't be so bad."

"Well, I don't think that's going to be a problem," He said with a chuckle as a house elf brought over another bag of potatoes, "We've still got about a million more of these to go."

"Well then you might want to cover your eyes, Emma," He smirked, "Because there's plenty of them and they aren't going anywhere from what I can see. Maybe the house elves could have you do something else?" He looked around to see what was going on.

The house elves were bustling about, stealing glances at them from time to time, as if they wished they weren't there. "No, it'll go fast if we do this together." Emma peeled as fast as she could without cutting herself.

Regulus nodded and tried to keep up with her. This wasn't so bad, as far as detentions were concerned. His potatoes probably wouldn't look so lumpy and disformed if he wasn't stealing glances at Emma every few minutes, but the house elves didn't seem to care.

"Thank Merlin they're only having us do this through one meal," Regulus said, thinking of the pile of homework that was waiting for him.

"Yeah, I don't think the potatoes could handle it," she teased gently. Emma nugded him gently, indicating his pile. Her's was only a little better.

"At least you've cooked at all," He said, "I've never even cooked for one. Though this isn't quite as bad as I've heard detentions could be. I suppose I've lucked out a bit."

"True. They also could have made us serve seperate detentions." She made a face. "What fun would that have been?"

She smiled warmly. "Thank god!" A house elf came and shooed them away towards a small table, one she'd eatten at with James on a few occasions nad even Sirius nad Remus. Soon they were being given plates of food, more than she expected to get.
