Angelina had wondered what was up when she told to do read the manual when she got there bright and early. She was used to more hands-on training. She was happy when she got to head into the meeting with her trainer though. She always felt like hot shit getting to listen to the older more experienced Aurors talking about the sort of things they were working on. She couldn’t wait to finish with her training and get to go head to head with her own cases.
She hadn’t expected changes within the office to happen so quickly though. She knew her place though. It was to listen and not to speak up. She was expected to stay in line and go with the masses. Something about the name of the new Minister gave her the creeps though. She couldn’t put her finger on it but her gut said something wasn’t right. That had been lesson number one in Auror training: Trust your gut.
She was quiet though until they brought back up Dumbledore’s death and Harry Potter. She wasn’t sure why it bothered her so much. They were just requesting him to be brought in as a witness. He wasn’t a suspect in anything. That pissed her off beyond belief though. Harry Potter had gone through enough. Didn’t they already know who did it? All the reports were pretty loud and clear about the facts.
“I thought they got statements from Harry – Mr. Potter back when the incident happened at Hogwarts,” she spoke up feeling a bit silly for breaking the rule of personalizing. He wasn’t Harry here. He was a witness. She couldn’t change her personal affiliations or opinions of him. She just had to stifle them. Her trainer gave her the evil eye for having spoken out of line. It didn’t shut her up. “I just don’t see why we should waste resources on a case when the statements make it very clear that there was a Death Eater Insurrection of sorts. Shouldn’t we be focusing on putting these people away? ”
That earned her an elbow into her good shoulder.
“—Don’t mind my trainee, she’s got a mind of her own,” her trainer spoke up. He was a surly older male with dark-red robes. He’d been there for a long time and hints of grey were starting to show in his dark black hair. Wiggins.
