Characters: The Order of the Phoenix Summary: The Order reconvenes
"Thank you, Flowbee, that will be all." Minerva turned in a slow circle, inspecting the meeting room off her office. Tea services were set up at either end of the magically expanded room, and the elves had made a large assortment of biscuits and cakes. They didn't know who was attending the meeting, but they must have sensed its importance to their headmistress, because they spared no effort in cleaning the little-used room and preparing refreshments.
Minerva thought Potter was none-too-clever in strong-arming her to host the Order at the school, but enough students had ended up in the hospital wing lately that she was anxious to have answers before someone was hurt beyond Poppy's abilities.
The Floo at the far end of the room flared to life, and Minerva turned, her hands clasped in front of her. She took a silent, steadying breath as the Order of the Phoenix was yet again called to action.
