Thanks to HarryandGinnyPotter@TDA for the wonderful chapter image
A/N I'd like to thank Theia Luna for coming up with the wonderful title for this story. Enjoy!
*As of 4-24-12 this story is going through a slight rewrite of the first three chapters, after those nothing is going to be changed. Then Chapter six will be posted. So sorry for the horribly long wait between chapters, life has been quite the roller coaster ride for me the last few months.
Right about now you're probably wondering who I am. Well my name is Elizabeth Alexandra English, and I live in a small two bedroom flat smack dab in the middle of muggle London about a twenty minutes from Diagon Ally.
I'm 5'4, about average weight, not the skinniest girl in the world but I do have a nice figure. Along with hazel eyes that sometimes change color to green or gold depending on my mood, and light blond hair that comes a bit further than midway down my back. I'm also a muggle born, something I have always been very proud of, as my sister is too. It's rare for two magical children to be born to muggle parents, but it does happen every once in a while.
"Alright enough stalling, time to get up." I sit up in bed and throw the covers off myself looking around my room as I do every morning. The walls are a pale purple with still life pictures of flowers hanging here and there (that I've taken myself. Photography is a hobby of mine) to the left of the bed is a nightstand with a lamp along with a few pictures of my parents. On the wall next to the window, which is covered in ivory rose patterned curtains, is the dresser and across from the bed stands a vanity between the doors to the closet and bathroom. On which the closet door hangs a Gryffindor banner. That's right I was in Gryffindor at Hogwarts, and still very proud of it, you know what they say; "Once a Gryffindor always a Gryffindor". That's how Harry and I know each other so well, I was a year below him.
Today is going to be a bit of a busy day so I got into work earlier that usual. First thing first, I grab a cup of coffee for myself and Harry in the ministry cafe ( something I started on my first day and it stuck ) before getting on a crowded lift down to the second floor.
"Good morning Elizabeth," He replies taking a sip of his coffee "Don't forget the extra meeting we have today in the conference room at 12:00 o'clock, courtesy of the dear Miss Greengrass."
I chuckle "Who could forget." I say sitting down at my desk."I'll be there."
"See you then." I watch Potter as he walks down the large hallway toward the lifts but takes a right, heading to the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts offices. I turn my attention back to the pile of papers on my desk, and begin reading through them, after which each one has to be categorized and filed it in the file room. Think of how big the library at Hogwarts is, that's how big our file room is. Massive!
After a long morning of filing, I'm now heading to the conference room. I never told you what that was all about did I? Well you see Astoria Greengrass came in yesterday to see Harry, requesting extra security for her wedding to Draco Malfoy. Already half the auror department, including myself, has been assigned to this event considering all the high profile people who are going to be attending. The Minister of Magic, several department heads from the Ministry, Victor Krum, important witches and wizards from all across Europe, just to name a few. Plus there's the fact of so many former Death Eaters will be gathered together the aurors want to keep an eye on them.
I get to the meeting right on time and sit next to Neville Longbottom. Everyone's there so Potter begins right away, the meeting doesn't last too long, about an half an hour. Four junior aurors are being added to security and they will be stationed around the gardens, I'll be with Potter, Longbottom, Weasley and several others in the main ball room. Our team will be keeping the wedding party and former death eaters in our sights all day, while blending in with the guests as not to draw attention to the fact we're there.
"Elizabeth, how did you like the report on the werewolf mission in Oxford?" Neville asks as we are making our way down to the lifts.
"It was fantastic, you guys did a great job. Wonderful strategy work." I say as we enter the lift along with everyone else who's going on their lunch break. "Plus its nice you were able to help the werewolf's with Wolfsbane and nobody got hurt.
Neville nods his head in agreement. "I told Harry I'd like to take you along with us when we do a follow up in a few weeks. Think your up for it?" He askes smiling as we exit the lift out to the atrium.
"You mean it, really? I'd love to!" I reply enthusiastically, with a huge grin plastered on my face. "Thank you."
"No problem. I'll let you know what day we're going." Neville says with a wave, each of us heading a different way once outside the ministry.
This is the first OC I've ever created, I hope you all liked her and will follower her through what I can promise will be a very entertaining story. =) Or at least I hope it is lol.
