Harry watched as, yet another, candidate seeking for the position as his assistant/secretary entered his office. She was not only interesting, but also very beautiful. With her luscious brunette curls, stormy grey eyes, she could turn heads, which could obviously pose a problem for the Auror Office.
“Good evening, Miss Greengrass,” greeted he.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Potter,” replied she, with a brilliant smile.
They took their seats, let the interview begin.
“Greengrass,eh?” said Harry, not being able to hide his curiosity.
A short ‘yes’ was her reply.
“Miss Greengrass, and please don’t be offended by my curiosity, are your parents okay with you seeking employment with, well, me?”
“Mr. Potter, my family has nothing to do with my personal life. I have at this moment severed any personal ties with my family,” replied she, her smile completely gone and a very defensive look taking place. “Not that this should affect my employment opportunity.”
“Of course not. As I said, it was my mere curiosity.”
Harry looked down at the parchement and commented, “You studied in Beauxbatons?”
“Yes. My family found it essential for me to live in Italy. I was born there, you see, and we used to visit there quite often. I moved there when I was eleven and studied at Beauxbatons, which was a train ride away, rather than Hogwarts.”
Harry found this information interesting. She is three years younger than him. If she were to be in first year at Hogwarts at that time………….he would have been in fourth year. He distinctly remembered the events that occurred before, during, and after his fourth year.
So the Greengrass’s didn’t want their youngest daughter involved in their mess, he thought.
“Miss Greengrass, as my secretary you will have to deal with paperworks and other mundane activities. But you also have to note that you would be the secretary of the Head of the Auror Office. In this department the working environment is fast-paced and brutal. We investigate and fight against crime. You have to be quick-witted and ready for anything. Your qualifications are amazing. You were also an outstanding student in Beauxbatons. But, are you sure you have the ability and confidence to do this job? My previous secretary got injured because she tried to prevent a robbery in my office. She didn’t last a month. No one did.”
She looked at him with determination and replied, “I know I can do this. That is the main reason I applied for this job. I have also faced danger in life. I have to capability to withstand danger. I also have the knack to know Dark wizards when I see them.”
Harry smiled. She may be little in stature, but has the guts.
“Congratulations, Miss Greengrass. You are now the secretary of Harry Potter.”
And then, both the candidate and the interviewer shook hands.
She nearly ran out of the room, so much was her excitement. She couldn't believe she got the job. She had a feeling that this was the moment in her life that would change everything.
What she didn't know was, whether the change would be for the good, or for the worse. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
