“Oh, no thank you dearie. I’ve come about the job.”
“For the Defence or the Divinations.”
“Why Divinations, of course.”
“But you are certainly qualified to teach either, surely you know that.”
“Miss Edith said I was to take the Divinations position. She is always right.”
She watched the tea pour itself, wondering about this man. He was near her age. He wasn’t afraid of her. And he was offering *her* a job.
He sat watching her, eyes a-twinkle. Enjoying her attentions. It had been a long time since he found a woman interesting.
“So you’ll be teaching Divinations then. I would guess that you would rather be in the dungeons instead of the tower that Trelawny used?”
“Either is fine. I can cover the windows. But the students mustn’t bring their wands. I’m allergic to wood, you know.”
“Indeed. Well I will show you to the tower and you can see if it will suit you and Miss Edith. Erm, did Miss Edith come along with you?”
“Of course. She never leaves my side.”
He stood from his desk and walked around it to help her from her chair. She smiled at him.
