Finally the construction men left for the evening. How bloody long can it take to finish one room? It seems like they had been working in the parlor for ages.

Andromeda moved about her flat turning off light switches and lamps. She was tired. Her bed was calling.

Oh bollocks. She groaned inwardly as she looked around the mess in front of her. Her room was covered in dust and apparently the crew men had taken it upon themselves to use her room as a storage area for their unused equipment and supplies. There were boxes of nails and widgets as well as drills and some sort of large pieces of equipment she couldn't even identify.

Her bed was rangy with old dust covering pillows and duvet. This just wouldn't do.

She pulled out her wand and tiredly waved it. "Evanesco."

The room cleared of junk, her bed stripped of linens and the dust disappeared.

She yawned, and then mumbled another charm which filled the room with decadent draperies, pillows and other lovely boudoir items. She smiled contentedly and headed to her new bed.

Ahhhhh.

TAP TAP TAP

The sound was loud and caused her to flinch as she turned to where the sound emanated from. It was an owl. And a beautiful owl at that. One she did not recognize. It certainly wasn't Regulus's monster Zeus. She let the animal in immediately. It flew to the back of a chair and perched, holding out it's leg.

The letterhead looked vaguely familiar. Hogwarts! This got her attention.

The owl hooted sternly, looking for it's compensation. She produced a cookie and then the creature took off as quickly as it had come.

She unrolled the scroll and sat upon her bed. She could not believe her eyes.

To Mrs. Andromeda Tonks,
(she rolled her eyes at the greeting)

Greetings from Hogwarts. I hope this note finds you healthy and well.

To get to the point, I am writing to ask a favor. I will be taking a sabbatical for the next year or two to immerse in the studies of Flobberworms. This will leave my position as Professor of Care of Magical Creatures open. It has come to my attention that you may be a candidate for this job. I remember you as a student and you passed my class with flying colors.

(Andromeda read this section twice. How could this be?)

Our prestigious Headmaster has emphatically offered your name for this position.

If you are interested in this position could you kindly reply as soon as possible as it is available immediately starting this school year.

Yours Kindly,
Silvanus Kettleburn
Care of Magical Creatures


She read the letter twice. Three times. This was impossible. Care of Magical Creatures?!

She lay back on a pile of pillows against the monstrous oak headboard of her bed, pondering the missive.

"Well I'll be damned."
