Minerva, Albus, Narcissa, Remus, Vera ~ Hogwarts ~ Complete

You Never Know What You'll Find With A Little Surprise Visit
Monday, January 9th ~ Late Afternoon

Minerva watched the infuriating woman leave her office. She had been severely tested to the limits of her considerable patience in dealing with Narcissa. After the door closed behind her, the quill in Minerva's hand snapped in two.

"Albus, I don't know how you managed to deal with those people all those years. I certainly haven't found a way yet. She sets my teeth on edge the moment I see her. I'm certainly glad she didn't lower herself to attend the reunion celebration."

Another Unexpected Visit
Monday, January 9th - Evening

Claudius and Severus had both fallen asleep on the couch and when the knock came at the cottage door it was a bit of a scramble to keep man and dog from ending up tangled on the floor.

Severus smoothed down his shirt and checked to make sure there were no suspicious damp spots while Claudius raced to the door and did his impression of a competent guard dog.

"You're not fooling anyone, you big oaf." The dog was pushed to the side and Severus opened the door.

"What happened this time? Kitten caught up in tree and you need my help? Wolverines attacking the innocent townsfolk? Your blonde tart managed to track you down and you want her to disappear?"
