Luckily he didn't have to wait long, not that Markus would have minded in the least. At her offered hand he pushed himself away from the wall he had been leaning against and took it with a smile and lead her outside. Maybe it was because they were away from the Ministry, or maybe it was because he was in the company of someone he genuinely cared for and wanted to be around but he was currently feeling more like his old self than he ever had this past month. It was as if her touch was grounding him to the present, making it easier to forget the past.
It had been a couple of weeks since he'd been topside, at least not since he'd dropped in unexpectedly on Kara, but he'd been through Muggle London enough that he had a decent idea of places they could go. Markus doubted Anne would appreciate another trip to the Abby after their last visit. Merlin, what a fiasco of a date attempt that had been, even thought the rest of the night had gone well. So where to go? They couldn't just wander aimlessly. Markus doubted that would go over well. There was a small little cafe a couple blocks from where they currently were that he used to frequent before all hell broke loose with the change in government. Someplace they could talk without having to worry about what was being said... maybe it was still around?
"I know a place, small cafe nearby we can head to if you're interested?"
