    Love Potion No. 9

    But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
    He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

    Richardson was on a stakeout regarding one of his other cases when he saw her on the street. Ida Green, the woman who was singlehandedly making him look like an idiot. (There were multiple circumstances conspiring to make Javert look like an idiot.) Which left him with two options: continue loitering outside the Jinxed Jackrabbit in the hopes that something illegal happened, or tail her.

    He went for the latter option. Unfortunately, in the crowd and the winding of Knockturn Alley, a cart cut off his view and he lost her. Richardson swore loudly and wheeled around, prepared to tromp back off to the Jackrabbit and tell no one about this, ever only to find the woman standing right behind him.

    "The fuck," he said, caught off guard although his wand was already in hand. This was not usual criminal behavior.

    Since running into Javert de Montfault several weeks prior or whenever it was, Ida had been laying low. She had barely left her lodgings and was planning her long term escape. However, her supplies had only lasted her so long, and she needed to speak to people, keep her 'business' endeavours going. Her lackeys could only last so long without her, especially if she was soon going to leave them alone for quite a long time, if not forever.

    She had come prepared though. In her pocket was a sneaky vial of polyjuice potion she had bought. It had been a bargain, the seller knew of her reputation and had offered her a lower price, seeing as she was in bother. Ida wasn't going to drink it until she knew she needed it (wouldn't want to waste it on a journey when no one spotted her.

    Someone did spot her as well. For all of her faults, Ida was shit hot at spotting trouble. She saw Richardson, and immediately took off. She was trying to find a spot where she could drink the polyjuice potion without the auror seeing her. Once she was in position, she drank the whole potion, at which point she immediately realised she hadn't drunk polyjuice potion.

    Ida waited down the alley as she tried to deal with the feelings she was feeling. This wasn't good at all. Her knowledge of potions was not good enough for her to work out what was happening. That was until she saw Richardson walk past, and when her overwhelming need to be near him, with him, just close to him. Ida ran after him,and when he turned, she beamed with joy, and attempted to grab his face and plant her kiss right on his mouth.

    Suddenly her hands were on his head, and Richardson was bracing for a punch. Except then her lips were on his mouth and was this what she had done with Javert? It wasn't a half-bad plan - Javert probably would have taken her against the wall right then - except that Richardson was so not in the mood to be fondled by this woman. 

    He was also never in the mood to be fondled by any woman, so.

    Richardson pulled away and sputtered. "What the fuck," he said, "Are you trying to do?"

    Wait, what? This Richardson was even stupider than de Montfault. What was the hiring policy in the department of magical law enforcement because their aurors clearly were clueless.

    "What do you think I'm doing?" she laughed back, grabbing him by the shoulders and pushing him against the wall of the alley. "I want you." she whispered into his ear.

    Overstreet was too baffled to do anything, and felt his back thump against the brick alley wall. He reached one hand up to catch her wrist. "No thank you," he whispered back.
