    Just Doing My Job

    So far this whole 'having an actual job' thing was going pretty well, in Lilys opinion. Her father had been quite opposed before she had pointed out that she could meet a lot more eligible gentlemen this way. Lily wasn't sure how true that was but it had served its purpose and now, here she was.

    Settled at the front counter, she watched as people came in and out of the Ministry transports. Her job was pretty simple - greet people, direct them in the direction of whoever they were looking for ... and that was pretty much it. Each department had their own secretary for the other things she had been expecting to have to do.

    Looking up as someone approached the counter, she gave them a bright smile. "Welcome to the Ministry. How may I be of assistance?"

    Freddie needed his brother Faustus for work related reasons. He hadn't found him in his office and their department's secretary didn't seem to know where he was. Freddie figured that his best bet was to ask one of the Welcome Witches. They knew who entered and who left the Ministry.

    "Good morning," Freddie greeted with a smile. This lady had to be a new one. He didn't recognize her. "I am looking for Mr. Faustus Prewett. Do you know where he is, or if he turned up at all yet?"

    "Good morning," she greeted back before considering his question."One moment and I'll check," she said as she took up the parchments that noted if someone was within the Ministry or had left it. She had just flipped to the proper day when she ended up dropping them all over the floor. "Oh, I'm so sorry. Another moment, please," she said, her cheeks red as she knelt as ladylike as she could to gather her papers up.

    Freddie felt bad for the young woman, as if he had somehow caused for the papers to drop. He could see her discomfort and he hated to think that he was the reason for it, as silly as that was!

    "Oh, it's alright!" Freddie made as he knelt to help her pick them up. When they were both finished, he handed over the ones he'd gathered up.

    "First day?" he asked with a smile.
