    Long distance travel was something Parker didn't do besides the ferry and train rides during his Hogwarts years. So a muggle flight halfway round the world was terrifying both the first and second times. He was glad to be back on the ground and back in England.

    It didn't hit him how badly he missed everyone until he stepped off the plane with his carry-on bag (his full-sized suitcase shrunk within it so he didn't have to bother with luggage claim). He could feel the emotions well up in his chest as the rest of the people from the flight pushed and hurried past him to either leave or make it to their next flights.

    He really hopped Cassie had been able to find her way to the airport and navigate her way in to meet him. Walking off to the side to get out of the way, he stopped and looked around for her familiar face.

    Cassana ran her hands through her hair as she woke up on the guest room bed - well technically her room - within her and Devin’s apartment. She preferred staying in this bed whenever she stayed over. Brooke was spending time with Joe - understandably so too. She yawned and stretched out, casually. She felt good, well-rested and calm. As she started to come to her senses completely, she laid on her back and tried to think of what to do. Devin was out, doing whatever it was Devin did (probably studying) whenever he wasn’t at the apartment, and she didn’t feel like bothering him so she never did. As her brain started to run over the possibilities of what to do, she started to let her eyes droop figuring that she didn’t have anything too stressing…

    Wait what day is it again? Her brain prodded. So she groaned and forced her eyes open to check on her phone the date and time. She didn’t feel anything out of the usual was supposed to -

    Wait a minute.

    Cassie shot out of her bed, holding her phone before her eyes bulged comically. Awh frick, frick, frick, she thought hurriedly a she quickly hobbled around the room searching for her clothes. Today was the day Parker came back home and she was to pick him up and take him to the “Big Surprise”. A surprise party for Parker! She was excited to do so, and happiness flooded her system at the idea of seeing one of her closest friends again after so long. As quick as she could she pulled on her tights and pulled the black dress over her head. As she was half-way out of her bedroom with her bright blue leather jacket on and ready to apparate her out she winced when she remembered that shoes were a necessity. She pulled on the first pair she could find, black boots, and tied her hair back before apparating out of her quiet apartment with a smile on her face. When she arrived at the apparition point near the airport she couldn’t help the burst of glee that filled her as she started to bolt towards the apartment that was fifteen minutes walking away. Yet she still winced when she realized that Parker’s flight had landed by the time she arrived at the airport. But that didn’t stop her from bolting and pushing through the crowd until she recognized a brunet meandering through the crowds.

    Parker!” She screamed exubriantly with a wide grin on her face as she ran towards him. She was ready to throw her arms around him when she realized she might just tackle him to the ground and instead stopped about a foot from him and opened her arms wide. “I missed you! Are you sure you’re Parker Emery? The Parker I knew wasn’t so tan,” she teased.

    [Parker's Outfit]

    Parker tiredly shifted his bag on his shoulders with a half-hearted sigh. By now, he'd grown aware of how being in close proximity to crowds of people had a drastically draining effect on him. And being trapped in a plane for the past several hours straight made him feel like he could barely hold up his own weight anymore. The frustration running through him didn't... feel like his own.

    There was no way he'd be frustrated about having to wait for Cassie, if anything he was ecstatic to see her after so long. He'd taken so many pictures while he was gone and couldn't wait to sit around and show her them. Show her the places he'd seen, people he'd helped, friends (however short lived) that he made. Even though all he wanted at that moment was to sleep, he knew seeing her would pep him right up. Hell, just thinking about her and knowing she would be there any moment made him feel a bit better as his eyes roamed around again for her.

    "Parker!"

    Turning in the direction of her yell, he smiled brightly. She stopped right before him with her arms outstretched, allowing him to go in for the hug. He appreciated not being knocked around by her this time around. He laughed at her comment about his tan, releasing from the hug.

    "Is it really that noticeable?" He shot back, looking at his arm briefly before turning his attention back to her. "You didn't have any trouble getting here, did you? Merlin, it's been too long!"

    Cassana felt close to Parker, as though he was a brother she never had. Then again she felt that way about a lot of her friends, except truthfully Brooke was more like a half of her that she’d finally found again. Yikes, is that too romantic? Nah. Cassie shoved the thought away as she continued to peel past people as fast as she could. She thanked whatever deity was up there that she always made time to run. Well, then again, she had been doing an excessive amount of running lately. She winced as she thought about how she used running to get ride of the extra energy in her that was birthed from her frustration and anger.

    She had tried to focus hard on herself on reestablishing her optimism and rebuilding herself. However, she was happy with herself. Now she just needed to fix her relationships.

    When he embraced her, she took a moment to squeeze him tight, and let out a small noise of glee when she realized Parker wasn’t as tiny as he once was. There was a more skin on his bones, and that made her so deliriously happy. Knowing that Parker was healthier made her feel more secure, but that didn’t stop the tears that welled to her eyes.

    Oh of course now. Look at you! All happy and healthy,” she replied laughing a bit as she wiped at her tears and laughing again, “oh for the Crone’s sake I’m so ridiculous look at me getting all emotional. It’s really been forever.” She said grinning, “c’mon I’ll call a cab.” With that she offered him the crook of her elbow to take as if she were an old-timey gentleman in order to lead him through the crowd.

    "Tell me everything! How was your flight? Did you have fun in Barbados? Did you meet anyone new? Make any new friends? What did you do?” She asked excitedly before pausing and feeling her brows furrow together, “wait you did go to Barbados right? Or was it Santa Barbara, or the Caribbeans?" She scrunched her nose up as she tried to remember where the ticket he'd bought was with confusion.

    While waiting around, Parker found himself wondering if things would be the same between him and his friends. Or rather, if things had changed because they'd all been so busy and moving along with their lives. He hoped that it wouldn't be too difficult to get back into the flow of regular life at Merlin's, especially with how good he was feeling the past few months.

    But all those thoughts melted away when finally reunited with Cassie, it was as if no time had passed at all. As they pulled away from the hug, Parker felt words catch in his throat. Seeing (and feeling) Cassie get all emotional stuck a chord with him. He tried to duck his head low in an attempt to hide his own teary eyes as she commented about how much healthier he seemed.
    "I really can't wait to tell you and the others all about it," he said as evenly as possible. "It was amazing."

    Parker happily walked along with her as she led him through the crowds to wait out front for the next available cab. When she started asking questions about where exactly it was he'd gone, he laughed. "I'd say you were close, but not at all. It was Tahiti, and Merlin was it beautiful."
