It wasn't unusual for Alfie to visit the Ministry; it was of instruction of his father and grandmother to acquaint himself with the government. Ideally he'd be speaking to each head of the department but that was beyond what he wanted to, at least for the time being. Instead, he stayed in the lift hall, deciding on what he'd do next.

She was leaving the ministry just after the interview and she wasn't sure how it went. Though she tried to put it to the back of her mind, she kept on redoing her responses over and over again, beating herself up over mistakes and slip ups. She didn't see Alfie as she walked through the entrance hall as she was tapping away at her phone, answering texts, redoing her schedule.

Glancing up at the right time, Alfie noticed Clara. They hadn't been close at school, friends at most, but they worked on a couple of projects together and were friendly enough to warrant him to go over and say hi; which is exactly what he did. Moving so he was walking beside her, he tapped her shoulder lightly, choosing that over standing in her way or bumping into her.

Her head snapped over to look over at Alfie, her eyebrows drawn together and it took a brief second to recognise him. "Alfred," she said after a small moment, "I didn't think you'd be...here." She'd have thought him to be surrounded by guards.

Alfie smiled a little, relieved to be talking to someone who wasn't someone who taught him or some official he had to know about. "Royal teaching," he said offhandedly, briefly remember how he talked so casually with those back at Hogwarts, "I'd rather not be here but protocol demands that I am - or at least appears that I am." He paused for a second, head tilting slightly, "You?"

She tilted her head as she regarded him. She wasn't sure how she felt towards the royals, whether she agreed with their existence and their continual but...she had thought Alfred to be nice when she had met him all those years ago. "Just did an interview," she responded, "guess royal teaching isn't that fun?"

"Oh, nice, what department?" Years of being drilled into his head of which department did what had caused Alfie to have the smallest interest in the way the government worked, even if it was just concerned with what departments did what. "Imagine the worst class at Hogwarts times ten," He replied with an airy laugh, rubbing the back of his neck, "It's fine, just not every single day."

"Applied for the department of mysteries, actually, which should be interesting enough," she said with a shrug. "Not going to lie, I kind of found all the classes interesting so I can't relate. Is it going to be over soon, at least?"

"Oh, I heard that one is often the best - it's the one my father likes to visit the most, at least," he said with a nod, "Oh, well, just imagine a boring class then." He shrugged, "I guess it'll be over when my teachers and grandmother deem me a knowledgeable enough heir."

"Guess that won't happen until you adopt the crown," she said studying his face, "I think it'd be interesting. Being immersed into the government, learning what you can. It's important."

"Probably not," He said with an airy, self-pitying laugh, "Though I doubt anyone's ready even with all the teaching in the world." He nodded, "Definitely. It sounds interesting enough and, yeah, definitely important."

"Well, you're obviously not going to see it through so...want to grab lunch?" It was a calculated move. Sure, maybe it was cruel of her but...she wanted to make her own ties and connections within the government, cement her place. If she gets the job, she'll be the new girl in town. But with a royal connection? The heir prince, no less, then she might be taken seriously enough.

Alfie didn't like to consider himself naive, but sometimes he let his perceived better intentions of people cloud what otherwise would be an immaculate judgement. Seeing Clara's offer as a way for two friends to get to re-acquaint themselves rather than a potential ministry worker trying to better herself, he nodded, "Is it that obvious?" He smiled a little, "Lunch sounds great - anywhere in particular?"

"Gourmet," she responded. Middle ground. She pressed the button to the elevator. "How's your family?"

Alfred nodded a little, going red. "Probably Sophia," he said with a nervous laugh, making it clear that he wasn't all... confident in that department, "I think everyone, especially after my aunt's wedding, is getting a bit antsy when it comes to me."

"You're only, what, twenty three? Twenty two? Plenty of time," she said with a shrug. She picked up on his discomfort and quickly changed subject. "I'm glad to see your doing well, though. I knew we weren't that close in Hogwarts but I thought of you."

She snickered. "No offence, but the titles are overrated. Not one of you is better than the rest of us," she responded, "plus, they get tiresome. How does one remember it all?" Clara can. She can name every single title that a royal is allowed to have.

Alfie shrugged, "I suppose it's like everything. Not one of the heirs to the major companies are deserving, technically, because they didn't work for it themselves but thanks to birth right they get it." He shook his head, "By having it drilled into your head, day in, day out."

Ah, finally, an empty elevator. Merlin himself is blessing her, it seems. Piling into the lift, Cedrica's arms are full of papers and folders, all of which refuse to cooperate with her spells and fold up and fly alongside her, as they usually would. Maybe it's because she's tired, who knows. And hungry. But she has lots of experiments to work on up there, including that magical wifi thing, so that comes first.

After the interview, Kendrick was about to leave the Ministry until he remembered having promised his father to drop by his office for something when the interview's done. That's why there he was, at the lobby, heading back to the Auror Office. 'Wait,' he said, when he saw the lift door closing.

He pressed the button before looking back at her as she spoke. She looked beautiful, he thought, but the posh accent reminded him of the strict office ladies who're too involved in work to understand the concept of fun. 'Oh I'm not working here - not yet, at least,' he replied, glancing at the directory, 'You're in the...Tech Department? Or the Sports one?'

'You look incredibly young to be the Head of a Department,' he commented, the expression written on his face was a slightly impressed one.

There's a compliment in there somewhere, she decides, and takes it as one. "I'm good at my craft," she responds, winking, though not arrogantly. It's clear she's just enjoying the impressed look on his face. "And you look particularly young to be an Auror - though I suppose fresh blood is necessary for that department.

He thought for a split second, scratching the back of his neck, and added, 'And I love that pizza place and the lounge bar in Diagon Alley - you know, the one near the entrance of the Ministry.
