Right. The letter from her father did not specify whether or not her presence was actually required during his stupid Christmas Party for his Ministry friends. Tidane, since not being the oldest child, she did not have the obligation to do squat. She'd let her elder brother be the responsible one and present the legacy of the Drubsky family. Tidane, being the middle child was not important. At least when it came to heritage. Her brother would inherit everything and Tidane would forever be the middle child. The smart one. The one who dared to push the boundaries.
For instance, she was meant to continue after their mother and work in the Ministry but after graduation, her interest were not in the Ministry but somewhere else. She wanted to be free. She wanted fly away and she did exactly so.
Now, she was working in Honeydukes and she was happy. It was her happiness that counted right? Her father would understand. Or not. Perhaps that was the reason why she had no interest in going to the big Christmas party. She would enjoy her time at work which she was doing just now. Expect that today was a very quiet day. No students were around or any other customers who Tidane could talk to.
Her fingers was currently laced around her wand as she reorganized some of the shelves while sitting behind the counter. All those colorful candies flew around the shop, making her lips twitch. This is why she loved her job.

She didn't like being out in the crowds. To be honest, anything but a small gathering of people sort of set her nerves on edge these days. Maybe it was because she was constantly looking around, trying to evaluate people and make sure there were no impending threats or anything. Like there would be any high stakes life or death situations in a candy shoppe, but, as it were, she tended to stay on guard.
There was, of course, the question as to why she was even in a candy shoppe to begin with. See, the thing was, Christmas was nearing. And she just knew her twin brother Klinton had probably gotten her some amazing gift, even though they'd decided at the beginning of the month to not to exchange anything. They really only had each other at this point in their lives and gifts didn't exactly need to be exchanged to echo that.
But, she could predict the actions of her twin better than anyone. So she knew she better get her act together and at least get some small token of a gift. Even if she was terrible at gift-giving. Even if it was going to probably be a small flame to the overly generous gift that Klint was going to inevitably give her. She had to try.
She knew he had a massive sweet tooth, so part of the gift naturally entailed a visit to Honeydukes. As she entered the brightly lit shop, she cringed a little as a pack of children ran past her, she half-wondered if getting her twin was worth all this trouble. But....she loved him. She had to try. Wandering further into the shop, Ali began idly picking up and replacing the items on the shelves one by one, trying to decide wahat to get. She probbaly looked pretty out of her element.

After the whole reorganization, a group of students flew in, chattering away and going around the shop. They were all wondering what to get. So many choices, so many things to buy yet so little time and funds. Tidane smiled to herself. She had been the same when she had been at their age. Honeydukes was a big treat and it was almost a rule amongst the students to buy as much as candy as you could to survive until the next Hogsmeade trip. Now, after all those years, she was working in the shop where she had so many fond memories. I'd call that an upgrade. There weren't much people left from her old school years but she still relished all of the memories from those days.
The group of kids left – after buying plenty of different kinds of sweets for themselves – leaving quite a bit of a mess. Tidane sighed but turned her attention to the other person who had stepped in. She was not a student, that was for sure but she did look lost as ever. Tidane, at first gave the newcomer her own space, but of course she had to offer her assistance, right? That's what good employees did or at least that's what she had been told to do. She didn't want to be a bother though. After cleaning the mess with a flick of her wand, Tidane put up a smile on her face and approached the young woman. There was some sort of familiarity in her but Tidane figured she was just imagining things because the other woman was very pretty and Tidane wanted to be that pretty as well. " Can I help you in any way?" She asked, placing her hands behind her back.

It became evident fairly quickly that she did not know what to buy. She didn't even know where to look. The shop was a sort of sensory overload, full of loud noises, bright colors, and rowdy children. Luckily, the kids soon left, having found what they were looking for. They did, however, leave quite the glorious mess behind, which caused Ali to immediately feel bad for the shopworker who was responsible for cleaning up. She noted the girl - a pretty face, for sure - as she easily cleaned it with a flash of her wand. Even despite her place in the wizarding world, muggleborn Ali still sometimes forgot how easy magic made life at times.
She was actually glad when the woman approached her, which was an unfamiliar feeling - human contact was not something she usually cherished or desired. However, she was at a terrible loss for what to buy and knew she surely needed a guiding hand. Clearing her throat, she answered the woman. "Yes. I'm trying to find a gift for my twin brother. He likes cherry flavored things, and dark chocolate." She offered a bit quietly. Shifting on her feet, she tugged at the sleeve of her black long-sleeved shirt, hoping the woman would not think it odd that a grown woman was having trouble navigating a store designed for children.
