Gawain stifled a sigh, reminding himself that they hadn't felt the strangeness of the Ministry the day before. They didn't know that Scrimgeour wasn't at his home in London like they were supposed to believe. And fuck, he needed someone to look into that as well. Unless he did it himself. That was an idea. No sense in calling attention to anyone but himself if his actions aroused concern on behalf of the Minister.
"I don't believe I said that Potter was responsible, Auror Savage. I just said that the Minister believes we should question him a bit further. I've looked over his statement myself, and there are some gaps that I think could be filled in," he said, which was entirely the truth.
