Setting: Random classroom
I learned something. Professor Delame? The hardest person in the world to please. Like...ever. Who didn't want to celebrate their birthday? REALLY. My original plans were something along the lines of a huge party and inviting everyone I'd ever met. BUT he didn't want that. So I scratched that idea and decided to do something small like I promised.
I made him dinner. The house elves actually let me use their kitchen which was surprising. He was always complaining about English food, so I decided that he should have some French cuisine. It was his birthday after all. I made a three course meal, salad, steak au poivre, and chocolate mousse. Typical stuff really. I could have done better? Maybe? But then again, I wasn't really much of a cook and this was the best I could do with the little time I had to prepare. And I probably screwed up horribly anyway.
I got him a present too. Something small, as I really didn't have much money to spare, but something nonetheless. That's what friends do, right? All that was really left to do was to wait for him to show up.
