Alecto kicks Ernie's arse. Fun times had by all. Rating highish. <3
Ernie had spent days trying to figure out to best suss out information from the Carrows. He had determined that, perhaps, Alecto would be the easiest target, but he still didn't know what to do or say. Every way he considered it, it resulted in a rather unfortunate end for himself.
But he'd resolved himself to try anyway.
Ernie walked himself to Alecto's office, taking a deep breath before knocking on the door. He had given thought to finding a time when she wouldn't be there and just breaking and entering. But if he got caught doing that, he wasn't sure even his pureblood status could save him. So he thought he'd try his (rather terrified) hand at being deceptive through conversation.
It was a pity he was a Hufflepuff. He wasn't really well suited for this sort of thing.
