Chapter 1: New Beginnings

The morning sun shone through the window, hitting her face causing sparkles to shine across her pale skin. Hermione's eyes fluttered open as she stretched luxioursly in her enormous four poster bed. Swiping her hand through her thick mane of curly brown hair, Hermione curled her nose up in disgust. Groaning, she made her way across the wood floors to her bathroom, walking in she immediately took off her pyjamas and jumped into the shower. 

After her long shower, Hermione grabbed her wand and shot a smoothing spell at her hair, transforming her unruly locks into beautiful shining ringlets. Stepping out into the hallway of her flat, she waved her wand at the stereo system causing a pop song to blare out. She danced her way into the kitchen, putting a cup under her cofffee machine and grabbing a croussiant from her bread box. Pushing herself up onto the counter, she grabbed her mail. While sipping her drink, she sorted through it all, until she came across a letter from the Ministry. Intrigued, she set her coffee down onto the counter, and used her un-manicured finger nail to slice open the envelope. 

Miss Hermione Granger,

We are pleased to offer you the head position in our forensic analysis unit, which works together with our aurors to capture and prosecute dark wizards. If you are interested in hearing more about the position, please owl me and we will arrange a meeting. 


Neville Longbottom

Head of Ministry Hiring

P.S. Can't wait to see you! It's been way to long Mione!

Hermione could not believe it, she knew getting a university education would help her get a job, espicially as she learnt muggle and wizard things, focusing on forensics. But she couldn't believe that the Ministry itself had head hunted her! It was a dream come true. Quickly she accioed a quill and piece of parchment then quickly scribbled her response.

Dear Mr. Longbottom,

I would be delighted to hear more about the position, sounds like the job for me! Please let me know when you meet you.


Hermione Granger

P.S. Can't wait to see you either Nev!

Beaming brightly, Hermione walked to her living room window, calling to her owl, Roger. "Rog, please bring this to Neville Longbottom at the Ministry" she said as she gave him a treat. Flapping steadily, his snowy white feather disappeared over the rooftops. Turning into her bedroom, she walked into her large closet to look for a suitable outfit. Pushing through the racks and racks of clothing, she finally decided- a black pencil skirt with a teal button up shirt, black pumps and some silver jewelery. After putting this on, Hermione walked to her vanity, putting on minimal make-up, just a little mascara and lip chap. Grabbing her wand and purse of the way out, she made her way to her window where Roger was tapping insistently. Opening the window, Hermione snagged the letter from his claws, as he was already starting to fly away. "Busy little bugger, isn't he?" she thought as she opened the letter from Neville.

Is 12:30 an okay time to meet?


Hermione smiled at his lack of formality compared to his previous letter, glancing at her watch she saw that it was 12:20. Walking over to her fireplace, Hermione grabbed a handfull of floo powder, stepped into the fireplace and spoke very clearly the words "Ministry of Magic, Neville Longbottom's Office" and with a large noise and puff of green smoke, she was gone.
