Now that violin was impossible to ignore. Though she'd never been much of a musician - the thing that normally touched her heart were words wrought on the pages of old tomes and new novels - this was enlivening. It made her wish she'd made more time for an instrument but now it was a bit late for her to start and as the music reached it's peak, the grinning faces of those she fought for smiled at her from the middle distance she began to stare into upon the beginning of the song. Now she could understand why some people though music was magic - it was almost as much of an adrenaline rush as dueling and feeling power flow through her wand.

Her wand.
Alexandra was brought out of her daze with that thought and the end of the music, eyes closing again. The formerly peaceful silence now brought no calm to her - just a reminder of what she had lost, and not just her wand.

And again, her brooding was interrupted. But this time, it was the start of the rain that did that. Upon feeling it's touch she got to her feet unsteadily, wounds on her legs not completely healed beneath her slacks while her bandaged arms were not even close to concealed by her purple blouse. So as the rain began to pound down on her, she could only walk - with a slight limp - towards the small stone shelter at the center of the graveyard. If she could apparate, she would, but she didn't know if the couple were muggles or not.

As he finished the last verse, it started to rain, as if the angle's in the heavens started to weep over Choi's performance. It was not just a light may sprinkle but a full on rain storm. As Choi put the violin back into the case, he yelled in over the splatter of the rain so Yuri could hear him. "Lets go back to the car!"

"We can't," she yelled back at him, clutching herself because all she wore was a thin layer green top with white jeans and high heels. Not something you would want to walk in the rain with. "Why is that?" he responded helping Yuri get off the wet grown before throwing her his now unbutton soaked coat jacket. Choi's noona gave him a weak smile as she placed the jacket over her head covering herself from the rain. Without waiting for Choi see took off, following the woman Choi saw earlier who was heading for the stone shelter. Choi followed in pursuit.

"Because I sent the drivers away," she responded almost to the shelter where the woman took refuge. Choi looked exacerbated by this news, but before he could say anything, she continue in Korean. "They are not coming back till an hour so don't ask." Noona, finally taking refuge in under the shelter, she gave Choi a dirty look to behave, before she took an interest in the woman. She gave her the warmest smile, even if you wanted to hate her, you couldn't. "Hello. My name is Yuri Moon Choi."

Choi said nothing as he stood at the farthest corner away from the two women. This day could not get any worse.

It seemed that the Asian couple had the same idea as her. She watched them yell to each other in the rain, musing over why the man had played the violin in a graveyard of all the places. But then again, Alexandra had heard interesting things of late particularly of her fellow-Ravenclaw graduate Aimee having performed in a spectacular concert recently with some foreign celebrity. She wondered how that was going for her, Aimee had never seemed to desire the spotlight at Hogwarts so the press must have been a sudden change for her. Funny how things in the present trigger memories like that.
But then that could just be the cold talking. At this moment, Alexandra would have given galleons for a drying spell. To be fair though, she was technically giving that to Olivander.

Her lips twitched slightly watching the man go into the corner to sulk after the woman had glared at him. Maybe not a couple then. Siblings?

"Alexandra Leoine. Lovely to meet you too." she was tickled by the irony of this all. They had sought to visit the dead yet ended to speaking to the living.
Ah, right, etiquette. Alexandra turned to the man briefly. Considering that his earlier English was heavily accented, she judged that he was not fluent as could be. "Great playing by the way." she smiled politely before turning back to the person who did not look like they wished to be anywhere but in her company. Though considering how odd she must look in her combination of heavy bandages and expensive clothing, Alexandra could understand.
"Do you come here often?"

It wasn't attended for you, Choi thought sourly as he tugged on his tie. The rain bleed through his dress shirt and white under shirt outlining his define but lanky body. He was not modest in the slightest, as he put his unraveled tie on the floor, and started unbuttoning his dress shirt. "You...are Wercome," he responded so Noona did not have a chance to berate him, giving a half hearted smile to the two women.

Choi pulled at his sunglasses to get a better look at their guest. She looked alright, Choi guess. Probably a one night stand if under different circumstances, but at under these, he did not want to be prince charming to the damsel.

Yuri under the other hand could not be more happy making a new friend in Europe, and hang out with someone other than the Debby downer of a baby brother. "Not really. Today is my..." But as she took off the jacket over her head, she got a better look at Alexandra, and saw that her arms wore wrapped in damp stalk white bandages. Instead of asking her something personal, like what happen, she said, "You need to keep bandages dry to heal properly. Here let me see your arm." Without even asking she took the dry inside of Choi's coat and pulled as hard as she could until a strip of cloth gave way.

Choi not paying attention till he heard the ripping sound, jumped to attention. "HEYYY!" Choi yelled.

She supposed his accent was charming in its own way, but his sullen expression drowned any potential interest in him. His physique was not shabby at all though, she supposed he got his share of attention and thus did not feel guilty about reserving her focus for Yuri. Never the less, Alexandra quirked a brow at his stripping down. Sensible but still amusing. If only Cazz or Vanity were here... Especially Vanity. She'd always wanted to get him a stripper and see his reaction.

Nodding in affirmation as Yuri began to speak, Alexandra was surprised to say the least when the woman tore the man's coat jacket to replace her currently soaked bandages. "No, you really don't ne-" the sound of ripping cut her off and the man exclaimed in alarm.

"Oh," she really didn't know what to say. Pink suffused her cheeks as she tried desperately to figure out what to say without annoying either of them. "Uhm, thank you but you really didn't need to tear his coat. When it stops raining, I was planning to walk to-"
Not to Diagon Alley. No such place existed in muggle London. Where where where where-
"A corner store to buy some new bandages."

"Why did you do that to my good coat," Choi spoke very fast in Korean, tugging the remminance of his coat. He looked it over, but it was hard not to notice the glaring obvious hole where his inside jacket pocket used to be. "This was 1.1 million wons!" Anything he tried to do to the jacket would be no good so he tossed it back to the floor.

Yuri was not sorry at all for the ripped Jacket. "Can't you see this girl is injured," she retorted back in Korean, taking the girl's arm gentle, holding up to eye level to see how bad the shape was underneath the bandages. It was not to bad. The rain did not have enough time to reopen old wounds, but it still wasn't a good idea to leave them in wet bandage. She carefully wrapped the left arm in the softest of wool cloth. "If it is that important to you, I will buy you a new one," she said taking the coat off the floor and tearing it once more.

Choi shuttered at the sight of the coat being ripped once more, but all he did was glare at Alexandra and Yuri when they were not looking. Yuri just ignored his sulking.

"It is fine," Yuri said speaking to Alexandra moving to the other side to take care of the other injured arm. "My brother is to dependent on materialistic things, and it is good for them to learn life lessons from their older sister, Don't you think so?" She said with a coy smile, as she finished the other arm. "Do you have siblings?"

Yuri was very gentle whilst replacing the bandages on her arms. Most of the wounds had just been scratches from vegetation as she had been climbing and hiding in the forests of Scotland and England but the woman had dealt even with the wolf bite without batting an eyelash. She was either very used to taking care of injuries or made of sterner stuff than her brother. The man rather reminded her of the people she used to encounter attending parties with her family: wealthy and unused to having to settle for anything less than perfect. Alexandra had been lucky in her parents there. But then Yuri seemed to have turned out well enough.

"Mhmm, an older brother. He's not particularly picky, but I used to have to nag him occasionally." she murmured. It was a better idea not to get involved in an argument between them in a confined space. Spoiled children - even as adults - threw the worst tantrums and she was in no way eager to see the brother do so.

Yuri laugh at the prospects of the young girl nagging her older brother. She seemed to have a leveled head as well. "Brothers need that. It keeps them..." But before Yuri could finish, she watch Choi step out back in the rain.

Choi not wanting to stand around listen to their banter any longer, walked out into the harsh rain without layering up. He ignored Yuri's comment about not catching a could as the droplets of rain bombarded his bar flesh, soaking whats left of his damp clothes.

"I am sorry about Seung Pyo. He doesn't like being here," Yuri said looking out into the rain, seeing a silhouette of her brother standing out in the rain by himself. "It reminds him of our mother."

He found himself walking the same path he did earlier, winding up right back in front of timothy's grave. The violin lay forgotten at the base of the stone slab. He took the case out of the mud and place it above the tomb stone. He unlatch the hooks and pulled the bow and violin out once more. Choi did without thinking what he was meant to do. He place the bow against the violin and played, just played. It was the best medicine for him. It was his medicine to clear his head.

Sorrow and Sadness

Even under the loud roar of the pelting rain, the melody rang clear and true, reaching Alexandra and Yuri under covers of the shelter.

She smiled vaguely. To be honest, she had not had much contact with her brother in a long time. Robert had moved out of the Estate for the most part and she walked the halls of her home alone. Where her mother used to play the harp for them and force the whole family through dance steps, silence reigned. It was probably why she was more comfortable than most in a grave yard - the atmosphere was not much different to her home.

Her reminiscence of a happier time coincided perfectly with the man's choice in music. For such a shallow man, he played with such passion and skill that Alexandra was rendered mute while he played. Ah, so they too had lost someone they loved. Perhaps that was why the brother - Seung Pyo - seemed to have such opposing elements of himself. It was easier to lose yourself in the music and then forget afterwards and not face your grief. She had done very much the same with her work in the Order.
It was a brilliant solution right up until it started to isolate you and hurt others. It was why she was here now. It was time for her to grieve.

Alexandra bowed her head briefly, "I'm sorry for your loss." Normally empty words, but she meant them sincerely.

"And yours as well," Yuri responded in kind.

Choi weaved the melody thrice over until all his emotions wore spent on this one single piece. With a heavy sigh he let the Violin and bow hand down at his sides. The cold wet chill infusing deep in Choi's bones. At that moment he felt nothing, he was numb to the core. After a long few minutes letting the cold infuse into his body, he decided to return to the shelter. As he started to put away the violin and bow back into the case he notice the engraving at the bottom of the case. Written in permanent marker the name Timothy Jones.

This was Timothy's violin. He played with these very same cords, the very same notes. A shiver ran down his spine and it wasn't from the cold. Taking the case with him he reach the shelter to find Yuri and Alexandra talking. "Yuri," he said interrupting their conversation. "Who...are...this Timothy and why you...bring me here?"

Her steel grey eyes considered Yuri in the dim light of their shelter. They were visitors or new-comers to England yet had someone close buried in this cemetery. There was definitely more to them than met the eye and Alexandra was not quite sure of that quality yet. As the violin sang again, Alexandra turned to watch Seung play in the rain. But at the same time, it was not play to him but an extension of his spirit.

Out of habit when he returned, she reached for her pocket where her wand would be, only realizing it when her hand landed on an empty pocket. Alexandra had almost gone to cast a drying spell on him. The corner of her mouth twitched upwards for a second. It had been a long time for her to go without her wand. Seung's questions sobered her up though.

She turned to Yuri, wondering at the answer.

For a time, Choi thought Yuri would not answer. He stood there, a puddle forming beneath him as rain water rolled off him. The sounds of the storm did not let up. In fact it rain harder than before. Finally, she said, “Timothy wrote you a letter once a week for months. For months he wrote hoping for a response, but got none.” Her eyes started to tear up, but her voice remand stead as the beating rain. “In his letters, he wrote about not being an athlete, or a scholar, but he could play. He thought he could have been your equal.”

“So?” was Choi’s only response. So he wrote a bunch of letters? So he could play the violin? What was it to him, Choi Seung Pyo, and why on this day of all days? None of this made sense to Choi. Why should he care about a faceless dead person, he never meet before?

If Yuri had magical powers, no doubt she would have used them right then and there. Her eyes narrowed at Choi as if she wanted to strike him dead right where he stood. “He had cancer, you heartless git. He wanted to listen to you play in person before he died.”

Aaand the arrogant twit was back. Watching the interaction between Seung and Yuri, Alexandra mused if they had forgotten her presence in the heat of their argument. If she were to join the debate, she'd have to side with Yuri. But then again, it really was none of her business. Yes, Seung had played some of the most heart-wrenching music she had ever heard, Yuri had been very nice to her and Alexandra happened to be present in the midst of their argument, but she really had nothing fair to add.

So it seemed that the rain decided to make things more irritating for her as she was barred from giving a graceful adieu and bowing out from this situation. Alexandra's eyes trailed over to Pheollix's gravestone. Day in and day out it would stand there until it was forgotten and the stone crumbled to dust. Alexandra resolved herself to request cremation rather than burial in her will.

Only Choi’s sister could make him feel insignificant, and small. The way she looked at him with disgust, but still her eyes watering up with fresh tears, it was enough for Choi to try to apologize. When he attempt to say he was sorry, she just shook her head, wiping away her tears. She did not want to hear it. Why should she, when he did not see the reasoning behind her request. Knowing that she did not want to see his face at the moment, he decided to withdraw. But before he left he bowed both to Yuri and Alexandra, forgetting that he was still displeased about being in her presence.

Without another word Choi turn on his heels and walk back into the rain. Even though he was still in view of the conclave where the two ladies lingered out of the rain, he felt comfortable enough that he could apparate out, seeing how the rain was heavy in the sky, and fog rolled in from the north. Without making a sound he vanished from sight.

Yuri still dabbing her eyes, turn to Alexandra. “Sorry about that. I don’t know where I went wrong with him? I am trying to teach him that you cannot just use people. That they are human beings.”

Now that bow certainly did not match the man's earlier attitude. Perhaps the relationship between Seung and Yuri was an emotionally rocky one. Thank goodness her own brother was so laid back - Alexandra was quite sure that she would have been driven to distraction if it had been otherwise. She watched Seung walk out and vanish into the rain and fog.
Odd. He disappeared oddly quickly but surely he wasn't... Alexandra frowned in thought. They were in a muggle grave yard: it made no sense for some foreign wizard to be there. She gave up her pondering - for now - as Yuri began to speak to her again.

"You can only teach so much to a person who doesn't want to learn." she comforted the woman vaguely, still watching for something in the rain. Alexandra would have to look at his foot-prints in the grass and mud later. Just to check. She honestly didn't even know why she was interested. Well she did have another four to five hours of waiting before Ollivander would be anywhere near finished with her wand.

"Maybe he's also had the misfortune to be surrounded by people who also want to manipulate him? Then his lack of care could just be a sort of shield..."

Even someone so young, had profound insight of the human psyche. Alexandra spoke the truth of course, but it still saddened Yuri at the prospect of Seung Pyo’s heartless demeanor. As she wiped away the last of her tears, she decided that Seung Pyo will not ruin the rest of her birthday. Her scowl turn into a gentle smile, and the repeated splatter of rain hitting the ground, sedated her anger. “So,” she said with a mischievous smile. “Seungie was going to treat me to my-“

Alexandra’s gaze lingered into the distance of the graveyard as if searching for something. “Is anything the matter, Miss Leione?” she asked curious, as they both starred into the eerie graveyard and that storm that hardly seem to be letting up anytime soon.

A small note of amusement sprung in the back of her mind at the change in Yuri's tone. She pushed it aside though in favor of answering the woman's query. Alexandra yearned to ask about Seung's vanishing but it had been a while since she had to be subtle when asking questions. There had been no point playing games with Death Eaters after all...

She wrenched herself from that dark thought, "Your brother seemed to vanish rather swiftly. It's almost like magic." She turned to regard Yuri closely. At worse, she would seem like some sort of odd superstitious freak to a muggle. If she knew what Alexandra spoke of however, that would be... interesting. Especially if the woman noticed her lack of wand.

This was the first time Yuri found herself in the midst of this particular inquiry. Yuri hided her reaction well, but an ounce of recognition in her facial features gave the truth away to those who are inherently magical in nature, those Seung referred to as “magicians.” Did Alexandra know about magic? Yuri could not tell, and she would not broach the question further, knowing full well the laws pertaining to magical secrecy.

To end the extended silence, Yuri returned her owned vague statement in kind. “Seungie has a tendency to do that.” Right than her phone, which was slipped into one of her coat pockets, started to vibrate. “Excuse me,” she said apologetically towards Alexandra, before withdrawing the phone to look at the text.

Yuri did not like to interrupt during a conversation, but she was waiting for a very important phone call, which can't be helped. The text wasn't from the person she was waiting for, but instead Secretary Woo.

Reservations have been confirmed, and proceeding back to pick you and Mr. Choi up.
-Woo

Alexandra tilted her head slightly, studying Yuri before turning away again. No: her curiosity could go unsated as it was too risky. The last few months were full of enough risks to last her a lifetime even as she was going to stop by the Order to start working again. She just hoped that her efforts to rebuild the infrastructure had been solid enough to continue while she had disappeared. But back to the moment at hand: Yuri seemed to be a lovely woman, but Alexandra would rather not risk the Ministry's interference.

"Don't worry about it." Probably someone picking her acquaintance up. Alexandra regarded the still pouring rain with a small grimace. It was almost a good thing now that Olivander would be taking a while to get her wand fixed.
At the same time though, Yuri did seem like a good person to keep in touch with. Alexandra watched her companion for a moment, wondering how muggles kept in contact. Something about 'E addresses' and something called a book of faces... Technology often bemused her.

Yuri simply slipped her cellphone back in her jacket pocket without responding to the text message. The fresh spring time showers and spending time with a friend, her troubles from earlier was erased. She did not want her first few days in Europe to go to waste, so she asked Alexandra, “Do you have any plans for the next few hours?” It was a simple question, but Yuri wouldn’t be offended if Alexandra refused her next offer. They barely know each other.

“Seungie and I had reservations at the Ledbury in London. Would you care to accompany me instead?”

"Oh." Well that certainly took her by surprise. Although she'd pondered keeping in contact with Yuri this seemed very... immediate and fast. But then again, why not? She had hours yet to wait for Ollivander and a potential new friend. Alexandra could not discern anything too dangerous. Worse came to worse, she would escape to the bathroom and apparate home anyways.

"That'd be nice," she gave Yuri a hesitant grin, still not quite sure how Yuri had decided to invite her along with such speed. Alexandra had never heard of this Ledbury but she assumed that the food would - if her thoughts on it being a restaurant were correct - be excellent.
"I'd be glad to come along, are you sure Seung won't be annoyed though?" being caught in sibling arguments was never fun.
