Author's Note: I'm sorry that I haven't written in a LONG time, I had bad case of writer's block. O_o I feel that this chapter shows that, if for some reason you don't like this chapter, review and tell me so. But, please, do it nicely. OH! I'm also open to ideas of how you would like this to end. As of a while back, I have no beta anymore, so if anyone would like the job, just say so. Ok, well onward with chapter 10!!
At Auror Headquarters, there was a frenzy of witches and wizards hurrying to and fro between cubicles. Some were having pleasant conversations while others were having heated arguments. However, all manner of work was ceased when Ambrose and Kingsley stepped into the office. Even the paper airplanes dropped from the sky. There was a sense of awe as the two walked towards their desks. Ambrose caught catches of whispered conversations as she passed. Things like "blew 'em all up she did." came at her while words such as 'scary' was associated with her actions.
After what seemed like an eternity, she and Kingsley made it back to their desks. Rose mechanically pulled the necessary paperwork from a folder and began filling out the vital information.
"Hey, Kingsley, what town was that again, Smed---, something?" Rose asked, trying to remember.
"Smedley." Kingsley answered.
"Thanks" was her reply. "Hmm, what was our reason for being there? That's a tough one." Rose went on sarcastically. "Oh, right, Death Eaters. How silly of me to forget."
"Come now Rose, paperwork isn't that bad." Kingsley said, with a smile in his voice.
"No, you're right of course, but the questions get so redundant." Over in his cubicle, Kingsley just shook his head.
Rose and Kingsley worked in silence, until there was a noise behind of Rose. She, in turn, turned around to find a tall redheaded man.
"May I help you?" She asked politely.
"Yes, are you Miss Ambrose Gesepidey?"
"Last time I checked, and you are?" Rose asked, quirking an eyebrow.
"I am Percy Weasley, Junior Assistant to the Minister of Magic."
"Ok, and what do you want?"
"The Minister wishes to see you, Miss Gesepidey."
"Tell him that I will be there shortly. I just have to--" But Rose was cut short.
"He wishes to see you now." Percy interupted. "He said it was of great importance."
"Very well," Rose said standing up and pulling on her outer cloak. "Lead the way."
The walk to the Minister's office was uneventful as Percy was not to keen on talking. After a few failed attempts, Rose contented herself with walking quietly and smiling at the passing workers. They encountered Mr. Weasley in a crowded corridor. Arthur, being ever curious, raised his eyebrow and greeted his son and Rose. Percy ignored his father all together and kept walking. Rose, on the other hand, told Mr. Weasley that they would talk later. Mr. Weasley opened his mouth to disagree but Rose had already hurried down the hall trying to catch up with Percy.
A little while later, Rose found herself in front of the Minister's office.
"Miss Gesepidey...." the Minister began.
"Sorry, sir, but please call me Ambrose or Rose., please?" Rose asked politely. A warm smile spread across her face.
"Of course, Miss Ambrose, how good it is of you to join me and such short notice." Fudge said, pointing Rose to a chair.
"Yes, thank you, Minister. It is my pleasure." Rose answered graciously. A satisfied grin came to Fudge's features.
"You must be wondering why I asked you here?" The latter asked, while taking a seat behind his desk.
"Very well. Percy, that is all." Fudge acquiesced.
"Of course, sir." Percy said, giving a bow that reminded Rose strongly of a house-elf, left.
"Miss Ambrose, it has been brought to my attention that certain abilities of yours are showing themselves?" Fudge asked, cutting straight to the chase.
"Yes, sir." Rose answered, cautiously.
"Very good. We've never had a Mage as an Auror before and we are most impressed. Which lead us to this meeting. I have been given some news that the Dementors are going to leave Azkaban prison," at this news, Rose did her best to look shocked, " and we need a large group of Aurors to help move the prisoners to another location. I wanted to ask you personally to help because of you abilities. Would you be so kind as to help us?" Fudge asked, leaning forward.
"Of course, sir. I will help wherever I am needed." Rose answered, meeting the Minister's steady gaze.
"Very good," Fudge answered happily, "You do your training proud."
"Thank-you, sir." Rose answered, smiling gently.
"Are there any other Aurors that we should ask specifically?"
"Yes, sir, as a matter of fact there are a couple."
"Who are they?"
"Kingsley Shacklebolt and Nymphadora Tonks. I have fought beside them multiple times, and think that they would be an asset to this mission."
"I will make it so." Fudge said, writing the names down.
"Any more questions, Miss Ambrose?"
"Yes, sir, where is the new location going to be?"
"Oh, yes. You would need to know that." Fudge said, blushing slightly. "The new prison is to be under Gringotts." This time a truly shocked expression came over Rose's features.
"Yes, my dear, under Gringotts. Come to find out, Gringotts extends much further than the Goblins let on. After much negoitating, they have agreed to let us use the space for the new prison. They have also agreed to help guard the inmates, as well as helping us move them."
"Very well. How will we be transporting them? Surely we cannot allow them to walk down an inhabited street?"
"No, of course, not. We just have to hand them over to the goblins. They will in turn apparate inside the compound. They are unfortunately the only ones able to do so." Rose let the imformation sink in.
"Do you have any more questions, Miss Ambrose?" Fudge asked.
"Just one, sir. Would you like me to inform Kingsley and Tonks? It would save you the time and trouble of doing so yourself."
"If you would be so kind?"
"Yes, sir. Is that all?"
"Yes, Miss Ambrose, you can go."
"Thank-you, sir. Have a nice day."
"Thanks-you." Fudge said, and went about doing paperwork. Rose left his office quickly and made her way upstairs.
Once again, she encountered Arthur Weasley.
"Nice day we're having?" He asked, staring at the simulated windows. Rose laughed trilly and answered.
"Yes, absolutely beautiful."
"What's going on?" Mr. Weasley asked at length.
"I can't explan right now, but there will be a meeting tonight, I will send word when it will be though. I have to see Albus first."
"Okay, see you later." Arthur said, walking away.
"Bye," Rose said, continuing upstairs to Auror Headquarters.
Once back in Auror Headquarters, Rose walked to Kingsley's cubicle.
"Kingsley, I have to get back to Hogwarts." She lowered her voice to just above a whisper. "There will be a meeting tonight. I have to inform Albus of some things first. I'll send word later when it's time."
"Okay, I'll see you later then."
"Bye." Rose said, walking to her desk grabbed her paperwork and after stuffing it into a folder and shrinking it, she left the office on her way back to Hogwarts.
