Cass understood, and only nodded. Percy was right, they couldn't put Ginny in the middle of this. He pondered all three options. McLaggen, who was a mate and a former lover as much as Ginny. Well maybe not quite as much but they had had some fun while they both trained to be Aurors. Plenty of times.
Then there was Savage, who'd trained him. No, he didn't like that option. It was easier to admit that he'd messed up to McLaggen than him.
Katie, he dismissed almost instantly, she was a Weasley by marriage, which could get her in trouble the same way it could get Ginny in trouble, even if she wasn't close to Percy. He didn't think that was fair.
'I think McLaggen is your best option,' he said. 'Katie is married to your brother, which can be held against her and Savage...I don't know. I trust McLaggen more. He's Tiberius nephew, he'll understand the need to keep the office separate from the Ministry, besides he lives with a bloke so he'll understand that too.' Hell McLaggen was one of the most protective guys he knew, which only served to convince Cass further. He didn't add that though, as he wasn't sure it would be a selling point with Percy.
He didn't like the idea of anyone questioning Susan, but he didn't protest, knowing it would be necessary whether he liked it or not. At the last comment though, he did smirk. 'At least some things don't change,' he said. Oddly enough it was a comforting thought.
