Date: 22 August 1997
Characters: Xavier Selwyn, Yaxley (NPC)
Location: Ministry of Magic
Summary: Two department heads discuss the future of the Ministry.
Yaxley wasn't his favorite person in the world, but even Xavier had to admit that the MLE was a much better place with him at the head. And with himself as Head of Magical Transportation, things were running much more smoothly as well - as quick and smooth as a finely oiled broomstick, in fact. With the two of them working together, there was little they wouldn't know about those that threatened the new order. Xavier even had his eye on a few of his other associates - just to make sure everyone was doing what they should. Quislings and traitors had appeared in every war to date, so this one would be no different, and he, at least, wasn't going to be caught with his pants down.
Walking toward Yaxley's office, he noticed that his progress was marked by several of the on-duty Aurors and hit wizards. He gave them a smile that wouldn't melt better as he knocked once and then opened the door.
"I say, Yaxley, your men and women are so terribly diligent, aren't they?" he said as he stepped inside, knowing he was expected. He met his counterpart's eyes as he smirked and shut the door. "It's almost as if they suspect me of killing my unlamented former boss with the suspicious looks I was getting."
