He was coming out of the elevators, ready to head home. He was still adjusting to the new position, but he was enjoying it.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She was walking toward the elevators when she spotted Benjamin. "Hello!" she said, smiling.

"Visiting my sister," she replied, her grin widening.

"You worked things out then?" he said.

She nodded. "There are still a few kinks, but yes, we've worked most of it out."

"Kinks that will be easily smoothed, I hope," he said.

"It'll just take time," she answered, hoping she was correct.

"Fair enough," he said. He paused, figuring he could tell her now. "So, I've selected my new position."

An air of pride would be heard in his voice as he responded. "Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement."

Her grin was wide. "Congratulations! That was Draco's old office, right?"

 – 04:33, January 30, 2015 (UTC)

He nodded. "Sort of. Draco was head of the Auror Office, which falls under my department. But they're separate positions."

She nodded, understanding. "That's a big change," she observed, "but I'm sure you'll do great."

"It was my dream job for a long time. Now that I have it.... it was a bit surreal at first. But then the paperwork landed on my desk, and let's just say I've come back to reality."

She chuckled. "I felt much the same when I became Head Healer- so much responsibility and new tasks to be done."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She nodded. "Reality hit me when I realized that every month I was in charge of inventory- counting every potion, vial, blanket, every item in that hospital."

"Well, I guess the previous Head only stuck around for a few months before... not coming to work. So it was kind of one of those 'effective immediately' sort of things."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She raised an eyebrow. "Wow... who'd want to give up a position like that?" She paused, thinking. "Then again, the previous Head Healer randomly disappeared, which is why I got promoted."

"You're not going to disappear on me, are you?" he asked, his eyes held a playful look.

He nodded. "Yeah, I'm done for the day. I'll continue tackling paper work when I come back tomorrow."

"Did you want to get dinner?" he asked. "Unless you'd rather spend the evening relaxing at home, which I totally understand."

Her stomach gave a tiny rumble at the mention of food. She tried not to blush. "I'm up for that if you are."

He smiled. "How about you go home and freshen up... or whatever it is that ladies do... and meet me at Hong Kong Restaurant in about an hour or two?"

~"Glory paid to our ashes comes too late."
She walked out of the elevator, finished with her final report on the Krevetski case. It had been hard to write- but she could almost hear Lily coaching her in her head. She guessed Lily had been in there so long she could guess her mannerisms. She strode along slowly, pensive.

"I know what that - No ... actually, I don't. Not lately, at any rate. If I haven't said it already, by the way, I think you've handled all this as well as anyone possibly could - especially given ... the lack of precedent."

She nodded slowly, assuming he was talking about Lily, and not sure how to respond to him... especially given that the last time she had seen Draco was through Lily's goodbye to him.
