Where: Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes Again, Hogsmeade
The Twins had been in Hogsmeade for only a few hours, after George insisted they needed to check inventory and work on the protections around the shop. "It's not like it's my favorite thing, either," George had said crossly. "But when you shagged Mina last week, we lost the one staffer who could actually do things around the place." They had Apparated to the street out front, then worked their way through the wards on the shop, which glowed bright purple even in the dark.
Now, Fred waved his wand and pulled out the boxes that were stashed under the counter. "Ok, looks like we have plenty of the crap like face fixers and itching powder and Muggle stuff," he said lazily. "Guess we need to really check on the stuff in the back, huh?"
The Twins had discovered a few remarkable things about the new shop. One was that it had a good storage area in back, and a small apartment upstairs, which they had only managed to get furnished with a few basics -- a couple of beds, some chairs, a hotplate and the like. However, it had a secret basement....
They were there to work on the inventory, so they didn't fuss with the basement. George had his head in the til, and Fred was heading toward the back. It seemed pretty quiet.
