Who: Alice and Lucius What: Pleasant conversation over lunch? When: About noon Where: The commissary in the Ministry complex Rating/Status: Low?/Incomplete
Most days, Alice enjoyed her lunch with Frank and their fellow candidates from the Aurors Program. Today, though, she was by herself; the instructors were testing each of them individually, which meant none of them were on lunch break at the same time.
The instructors had really been pushing the candidates today, and Alice was ravenous. She joined the line of ministry employees and trainees in the line and examined the board for what was on offer. She wanted beef and potatoes and something hot.
There was a sudden pressure by the small of her back and someone crashed into her, and Alice tripped forward slightly, catching her hand against the back of the tall blond man who stood in front of her in line. She turned back to shoot a look at the clutz behind her, and then turned back to the blond man. "Very sorry. Bit crowded."
