RP: Working Arrangements
Characters: Alicia Spinnet, Xavier Selwyn Place: Gringott's Date: 27 August 1997 Summary: Alicia has a new assignment. Pacify the Death Eater. Status: Private/Complete
Alicia was worried. Everyone was worried. People had already been let go from Gringott's this week, silently, and a few hadn't even come in to work, just mysterioiusly been gone. Now, in her department of Cursebreakers, it was only herself, and Bill Weasley, and some of the old timers who were all battle scars and trying to avoid actual work. There were others still deployed overseas, but she'd been kept working overtime as people put up more security on their vaults or, alternatively, emptied them completely.
The atmosphere at Gringotts was hushed and expectant, as if they were waiting for something to happen, even the goblins.
She was cleaning up after a long day when one of the goblins came in and said someone wanted to speak with her. His voice was... wrong somehow, high and squeaky, and he gave her an odd look. She pushed up the sleeves of her shirt and wiped the soot off her hands before heading back out to see who needed a last minute curse broken, at least she hoped that was all.
Her heart stilled as she saw the back of the man waiting. It was the one that had been prowling around here the past week or two, questioning people, meeting with the higher ups. What did he want with her?
