Michael almost crowed at the display, but he held it in. Instead he just smiled brightly. "Good!" Michael chirped up throatily, pleased with the girl's progress. "Remember, the Suffocation Hex has a complicated throttling motion with its grip. Its one of the most distinct and easily countered. Make sure you get the words precisely right. Ansuffoco. We'll work on Unspeaking it later." Michael tried to instruct. The source of his contentment was the progress Megan Jones had made over the last month.

Walking over, Michael slid an arm around Megan's neck and placed a kiss against her temple. "Brilliant. We'll make a soldier out of you yet," he cooed with praise. He was sweaty, clad as always in his workout clothes but he hugged her just the same.

A memo zoomed out of Kingsley's office, just before the door closed.  It flapped itself over to Duncan's desk, then began flying in circles, occasionally throwing in a figure eight just for variety. 

About fifteen minutes latter, Kingsley's current appointment left and the door was propped open, signaling that the Head of the Auror Department was available for drop in appointments.

Who: Anthony, Michael and Hannah
What: Things didn't go exactly as planned
Where: Great Hall
When: Breakfast, December 16, 1997
Status: Incomplete

The first thing Anthony thought about when he read the news this morning was his sister Sarah. Just when things were getting better at home since Rachel had been released from her three week sentence at the local detaining center, now this happened. His older sister Sarah, who was planning on marrying her Muggleborn fiance Eli in April, would be devestated to learn that marriage would not be legal. But then again, at this point, Sarah was probably more worried that Eli would be arrested - or worse - that she might not be that concerned about their ruined nuptials. Just the same, Anthony had every intention of writing home today, to check in with everyone.

Closing the paper and pushing it aside, Anthony dipped a knife into a jar of butter and spread it onto a piece of warm cinnamon toast.  He took a bite, just as his best mate Michael took a seat down beside him.
