He knew his wife was starting at a new work place and wanted to show he supported her even if her type of work didn't really interest him.

Taking his wife's arm he placed in on the sleeve of his tuxedo so that they could stick together. He didn't want to loose her in a place like this. The thought of being alone in this crowd was almost horrifying. Just like always he had a straight face as he eyed the people. Nothing out of the ordinary and if they didn't bother him he wouldn't bother them. Simple.

Mr Goodman. he secretly loved it when he's wife called him that. "Maybe we should do exactly that." Because he didn't want to mingle just yet. "I think the food table is somewhere over there." He pointed and then eyed the stage. Rather big, if you asked him.
Abby was getting more grateful by the minute that her husband was there as the crowd swelled more and more of strangers. It felt like her first day in Hogwarts just over 10 years ago when she barely knew everyone. Yet back then she had gone up to the first first year she saw and introduced herself. Even if that classmate had thought it was wierd that Abigail then Chapman had introduced herself so openly Abigail did not care at all. Yet now as she was starting a new job the preassure to make a good impression was hard. Was it considered egotistical to go up and greet a random somebody, was it like you thought you owned the place? Abby was just friendly and she was desperate to meet all these people, yet how to do it?

Abigail followed her husbands point, of course she knew where it was as after all she was a woman a most of the questions women ask they already know the answer. "lets so check out what they are serving then. I am starving again." she told Gabriel. She was always starving, until she realized that she would have to make the food herself and that was when her hunger pangs forgot themselves. "Is that okay with you? Or should we dance first? If we dance first we will be much more hungry yet if we eat first then I might get a stitch" she said getting all analytical. Then she stopped, "whatever actually, I don't really care as long as I am with you" she said affectionately

It was Manolo. Beckoning him over, Maine smiled. "Good day, Manolo?" she asked. It was only afternoon, anyway. The day was young and it was unlikely that something had upset so happy a person this early in the day.
She was right, as always. He was here to socialize. Because he worked here. He resisted fidgeting with his tie. Leo left briefly, and came back with drinks. He handed Maine hers, and turned to see Manolo on his way over. "Hey cousin!" Leo greeted him. He supposed that this could be fun. After all, it was a party, and Maine was here. How could Leo be upset about that? He let a smile appear on his face. "I guess this could be fun," he admitted to Maine.

He wasn't late. No. Never late. It was just, this time he decided to arrive after most everyone else did. The average person might not have been able to see the logic behind this but he could and that was all that mattered to him.

He got to the entrance hall and just stopped to take it all in. It had been a while since he'd set foot inside the ministry and he never thought he'd see the day when he would again. His eyes scanned the room; he was looking for his candidate. No doubt she'd still be put off about the recent debate had but surely she wouldn't have still been upset. In a campaign one had to be able to push past things.

Hmmm...no sign of her as yet...

Was she the Youngest one in the ministry!? everyone seemed so much older.
This meant it was time to start rubbing elbows with these people in a bid to entertain himself until the debate started. He spotted a young lady, one that obviously wasn't looking where he was going because she knocked right into him. Or maybe he ran into her. Did it really matter? The point was that an apology was now owed but being the gentleman he was he'd be the first to offer it. "So sorry about that. You aren't hurt are you?" No? That's wonderful. Good to know. And yes, he was fine, no need to worry.

"Come to enjoy the debates?" That had to be it seeing as she wasn't a candidate and he never saw her among the managers from the last debate. "Do you have anyone in mind, that you'd like to see winning...?" Ah small talk. It always set the pace for full blown discussions and persuasions.

Oh look. One of the candidates. Outside of his own candidate he hadn't really had a chance to speak to any of them but not from a lack of trying, they were just usually being tailed by their managers and he couldn't be bothered with that kind of scandal. "Seems like this is going to be an interesting night, this being the big debate and all." He smiled a bit. "Just how confident would you say you right now?"

Oh, but there he had gone being rude.

"I'm Nathaniel by the way, Nathaniel Black."

Did he tell her he was a campaign manager? Would that really matter all that much?

And there was that woman from the first debate...Livia was it? Yes. Livia, the one who didn't want him calling her by any nicknames for reasons she never bothered mentioning and he never bothered asking about. He could take a hint.

"Livia, you're looking lovely in that dress." He said with a smile of approval as he made his way over to her. He took a moment to glance around the room for his candidate again. Still no sign of her, this meant he had more time to chat. "You and your candidate all set for the debate?" Just a curious question he thought to ask. During the last debate they all seemed prepared...some a little over prepared but this was a different setting and there would be a whole new set of questions for the candidates to mess up with.

Zach cannot help but overhear people's conversations. He loves listening, not eavesdropping.

He took notice of a particular conversation. He walked towards the guy and said, "Mr. Black, how are you?" he said extending his hand to shake the guy's.

"Is your candidate ready for tonight?" he said giving an enthusiastic nod.

He didn't introduce himself because he thinks that almost everybody knows who he is. Or do they?

Don't mind us, just walking and not paying attention to a single thing that going on. Miss. Smith was busy looking up at the ceiling. Taking a few steps forward she continued admiring it when "oof!" she ran RIGHT into someone. She stumbled a bit before adding " Oh! I'm So....... Sorry." okay so using the word Sorry was a rare thing to the girl she was hardly ever sorry for anything... ever. She smiled weakly up at the man "No, Im Not Hurt thank you, are You?" see Athena had a rather thick head and she personally believed she could piratically kill a man if she wanted to with the damn thing, seeing as how her head went into the guys arm, or something. "the debates? Oh yes! I'm new to the Ministry and to Scotland as a whole. Just getting to know everyone really." and blah blah there went her chatter mouth again'I'm not sure. this is the first im really seeing any of this elections stuff." she said in her wildly thick aussie accent. "Athena Smith." she said to the man, his turn to speak now

Nate was suddenly pulled from his conversation by the sound of his name being called. Strange...the only people he introduced himself to were those he was currently talking to. Perhaps someone from his old department had recognized him? He turned in time to see a man extending a hand to him.

"Quite fine and you?" He said, taking his hand and giving it a firm shake. Did he know him?

"I'm fully confident that she's prepared herself well and will make an excellent delivery tonight." The woman was determined enough to and she had said that she intended to win...but back to this man. "I don't think I caught your name..." He trailed off, hinting that he'd like the man to introduce himself or forever be known as 'the man'.

Just as he thought. She was sorry, that was wonderful. People who could admit to their mistakes went high up on his list and she earned herself a smile. "It really is no problem. Don't worry about it too much. I don't think I was looking where I was going either..." Now that he thought about it...his mind had been somewhere else.

And she wasn't hurt! Even more brilliant! This meant no potential law suits right? Obviously he cared that the woman was alright but he also didn't plan to lose any galleons unnecessarily. "I'm fine, like I just said, but your worry makes me feel better." He said, giving her a wink and another smile.

"New? Fascinating! It doesn't sound like you're from around here at all." Now if only he could pick up what accent that was. "It's a pleasure meeting you, the name's Nathaniel Black, I'm a campaign manager. Can I ask what department your working in?"

Ah. Yes. He may.

He walked over with a smile in his face and shoved his hands in his pockets. "Good day, cousins." He smiled big. "Ready to socialize?"

If only HE had such a great campaign manager, his hadn't shown up in ages...

"I guess I should congratulate you on your candidate's success," he said with a chuckle. "I'll admit it was a tad embarrassing getting dunked but I'm looking forward to redeeming myself tonight," he explained.

In case Berg and Erik didn't already know, he was NOT going down without a fight.

"So, enjoying the evening so far?" he asked the whole group.

At least the fellow had enough sense to not make an excuse for himself. Because Bjorn was not amused by ridiculous excuses.

"Thank you, Mr. Reynolds. We are indeed pleased with Erik's performance in Hogsmeade." Would it be too much to mention the place he got? Yes. Yes it would. "Second place is definitely nothing to complain about, though I would've preferred first..."

And then the not-so-subtle reminder. "I suppose I should just be content he stayed dry, eh, Reynolds?" he finished, elbowing him jovially and flashing him that famous winning smile. "Oh yes, plenty of time to make up for all blunders--perceived or otherwise." And yes, he did intentionally imply that your mistake was not merely perceived, but real, Reynolds.

"Oh yes, the British always throw excellent galas. Though perhaps not lively enough for my taste." Where was the ballroom dancing?

SPOILER!!: Erik Vinteren
Quote:

He gave his fellow candidate a manly clap on the shoulder, which probably hit him harder than he'd intended it to, and winked. He could schmooze with the best of him...and it was even easier when the people he was running against were nerds like Nolan.

It seemed Erik wasn't the only one being distracted this evening. His gaze trailed Roxanne's over to the sombre looking man with a woman on his arm. Hmm, this could get interesting, he thought...

"Good for you," he replied simply, his mind whirring elsewhere even while he was talking to the blonde. "Not sure vhose idea it vas, but apparently the British Ministry doesn't know vhat a holiday is..." This sort of event should have been held on a Saturday, not a Monday. No one liked bloody Mondays.

Erik was well-trained in the art of spying, so much so that when he felt eyes on the back of his neck, he almost always knew who was staring at him. He felt the familiar hair-raising feeling now and turned his head, taking note of a suspicious character in round glasses and a dark hat. He was standing too close to their group for Erik's comfort.

"Excuse me, Roxanne, Nolan...Bjorn." He dismissed himself from the group with a bow of the head and started across the hall, seemingly going for the dining and seating area with his chin tilted up slightly and his eyes focused straight ahead.

Hardly on his way there, however, he made a too-close pass to the man in glasses and a hat. His pass turned into a bump...almost an intentional shove, if anyone had been watching...that should have knocked the smaller man over.

"Beg your pardon," he apologized immediately, stopping and feigning surprise at the sight of the dishevelled man. "I didn't see you there."

Bjorn nodded approvingly as Erik interacted with Nolan. Any onlookers would notice his in-charge body language, whether consciously or otherwise. And laughing at a witty comment Erik made was a good idea, so Bjorn helped him along via an appreciative chuckle. "I suppose we shouldn't gang up on Mr. Reynolds too much, Erik," he said somewhat dramatically.

"Oh of course, of course," he said upon Erik's departure. "I was just thinking of visiting the refreshment table, myself. Mr. Reynolds, I feel as if I may have overstepped a bit, giving you too hard of a time, perhaps." Which of course was to undermine his confidence, but he need not broadcast that intention. "Will you allow me to bring you anything?"

I'm just one of those pretty little liars... | | I'm held down in this starless city...

Board of Governors Debate. New Year's Bash. It was a bit too much to take in a single night, not to mention that he was completely lost.

As he stepped into the entrance hall, Konrad stopped to take everything in, nervously tugging at the sleeve of his tuxedo. He had no idea what in the world possessed him to wear a simple, black bow tie, because he knew it would make him feel uncomfortable the whole night. He hated those things, and they even took a lot of time to tie! Ties, bow ties, or whatever went around his neck to strangle him.

Not sure of what to do or where to go next, he decided to stick around a little longer. Perhaps a friendly face would save him.

Zach was surprised that the guy doesn't know his name, especially that he is one of the people who put him in charge of a candidate.

"Oh, I'm sorry. Where are my manners" he said with a cheeky smile. "My name is Zacharias McMillan" he said pausing for a little bit considering if he would want to tell them his title or not.

"And its really good to know that your candidate is confident at her stance. I will be looking forward to her's and the others arguments" he said looking at the other folks around them.

So is the food going to be served the moment people come in or do they have to wait for the Minister to make some speech? Just like old times, back at Hogwarts that is. Stephen sure hope it's nothing like that because he is going to eat as much as his stomach can no longer take.

Hey, free food, what's not to like?

Stephen then noticed a person smiling and standing next to him. Pretty lady with that smile, of course you have to smile back. Which Stephen did.

Any idea when the debate will start?

Stephen looked at her as his brain processed for answer but then again the whole BoG member thing was not in his schedule of events. He has heard of this in the Daily Prophet. How there were candidates running for a spot in this whole new team. Stephen then shrugged "I have no idea about it" he let out a soft laugh "Are you one of the candidates, Miss?" he asked because if she was then she would definitely have points for beauty.

He had no idea what in the world possessed him to wear a simple, black bow tie, because he knew it would make him feel uncomfortable the whole night. He hated those things, and they even took a lot of time to tie! Ties, bow ties, or whatever went around his neck to strangle him.

Not sure of what to do or where to go next, he decided to stick around a little longer. Perhaps a friendly face would save him.
Zach was talking to the Campaign manager when he spotted on of their own. And just in time. He was searching all over the place for the Members of the Board of Electors and here is one right here.

He waved at Konrad and motioned him to come over.

As Konrad looked around the entrance hall, still absently tugging at his sleeve, he eventually spotted the Junior Undersecretary, who apparently wanted him to walk over. That is exactly what he did, only to realize that Zacharias was already chatting with someone he didn't know.

"Hello," he nodded politely towards both men as he joined them.

"Good day and Happy New Year, Mr. Scherfig" he said as Konrad approached him. He extended his hand to the guy and said, "I believe you are familiar with Mr. Black" he said referring to the other guy.

He was hoping that Konrad would remember all the candidates and their managers.

"Looking forward for the debates?" he added.

Shaking the man's hand, Konrad grinned. "Happy New Year." As he turned to the other man, he nodded, offering his hand for a handshake with Mr Black. "Sir." Well, they hadn't really met yet, but Konrad had to do his homework before this whole thing, ever since he found out he would be a member of the Board of Electors. He had to know something about everyone, eh?

Was he looking forward to the debates? "Yes, I am," he spoke honestly, although he wasn't going to tell the men how nervous he was. Couldn't say it was something he did on a regular basis, after all.

Abby was evesdropping, or just plan listening as she had called it when she was younger,when she heard a familiar name. Zacharias McMillian, wasn't he the one she was meant to report to, being part of the board of Electors. She walked over to him dragging her husband along.
"Hello, are you Zacharias McMillian, the junior under secretary? Well I am Abigail Goodman, a member of the board of Electors and the new receptionist at the Minister's office." She paused and smiled more, this was great meeting new people in such a relaxing setting. In his office it would have to be more formal. Oh yeah her husband, "and this is my husband.. Gabriel" she said nudging her husband. She then looked at her husband, "Gabriel, this is Zacharias McMillian, the Junior Under secretary and he is the man I will be reporting to on my first day'. Hopefully her husband will have his manners and behave socially well.

Oh, but there he had gone being rude.

"I'm Nathaniel by the way, Nathaniel Black."

Did he tell her he was a campaign manager? Would that really matter all that much?
Lourdes was just about to look and sit with her fellow candidates when a man had decided to chat with her. Hmm. Indeed it was going to be an interesting night but well, she hoped that Minister Greingoth had beverages that weren't spiked anymore. She was now going to be extra careful with her actions. "Yes, it does seem pretty fancy," she nodded in approval. She never knew the Minister could hold such a marvelous event. As to how confident she was, Lourdes wanted to tell him that it wasn't his business but she was trying to be professional and not rude. "I'd scaled it a nine out of ten, but I'm sure I'll gain what's left once I'm on stage." True.

Nathaniel Black. That was strange. Lourdes examined him for a while and then offered the man a small smile. "Nice to meet you," she said. "I'm Lourdes Black." Oh, was that odd? The blonde didn't know if they were distant cousins or whatever relation they had. Hem hem. "Are you a new Ministry employee?" He didn't tell her that, or anything related, yet. All Lourdes knew was that this man, she didn't employ.

She didn't see him slightly scowling at the other women who had brought dates (Not that she thought of these men as dates, just potential allies. Or enemies.). And that's because he wasn't. A fact that put a slight smirk on her face as she turned back to the conversation at hand.

"Of course. Had a wonderful and successful party. In fact, still a little tired from that," she replied, turning her slight smirk into a smile. But honestly, who holds a New Years Party the next day, on the first? She had never heard of such a thing before. And obviously, the Board of Elections was just as clueless, having a debate when there was a good possibility of everyone being tired from the night before. And speaking of the Board, who even was on it, anyway?

And that was how you did things, Ms. Ivy Knox. Honestly, a little politeness always got you somewhere. If she had gone to Hogwarts (Roxanne couldn't remember if she'd said or not), she certainly hadn't been a Slytherin as obvious as she had acted. "Aw, you just haven't gotten to know me yet," she replied with a wink. Okay, she wasn't that bad, but he didn't have to know that.

Unfortunately when she had walked by a few minutes ago, she had not only caught the attention of Dorian, but Natasha as well. Unfortunate for the other woman anyway. Because she was so busy eyeing Roxanne, she had failed to notice her date doing the same. Which made her want to laugh. Well, this is going to be a piece of cake.....

And turning her attention back to her companions, she tried to hide another smirk with a smile. Though, she was sure her eyes were showing a trace of amusement. "Oh, definitely. But I'm kind of curious about whose idea it was to hold a New Years party on New Years Day......." And her thoughts were turning circular. Brilliant.
"Perhaps they wanted to lift everyone's spirits? You know, New Year, new chance at wiping out the competition," Nolan said with a chuckle. He was joking of course, but now that he said it, it sort of made sense. Maybe.

"At least vhere's no dunk tank here to fear, eh?" Erik chimed in on his manager's and Nolan's conversation. He gave his fellow candidate a manly clap on the shoulder, which probably hit him harder than he'd intended it to, and winked. He could schmooze with the best of him...and it was even easier when the people he was running against were nerds like Nolan.

It seemed Erik wasn't the only one being distracted this evening. His gaze trailed Roxanne's over to the sombre looking man with a woman on his arm. Hmm, this could get interesting, he thought...

"Good for you," he replied simply, his mind whirring elsewhere even while he was talking to the blonde. "Not sure vhose idea it vas, but apparently the British Ministry doesn't know vhat a holiday is..." This sort of event should have been held on a Saturday, not a Monday. No one liked bloody Mondays.
Nolan chuckled, despite the fact that Erik felt like he was trying to break his shoulder with that clap. "True true...but I've been practicing. Others can fear whatever awaits the bottom three THIS time," he said with a confident grin. He had the feeling that Erik was starting to...write him off as a candidate. Well sir, Nolan Michael Reynolds was NOT a quitter and he was not going down without a fight!

Now, as for his uppity campaign manager...

And then the not-so-subtle reminder. "I suppose I should just be content he stayed dry, eh, Reynolds?" he finished, elbowing him jovially and flashing him that famous winning smile. "Oh yes, plenty of time to make up for all blunders--perceived or otherwise." And yes, he did intentionally imply that your mistake was not merely perceived, but real, Reynolds.

"Oh yes, the British always throw excellent galas. Though perhaps not lively enough for my taste." Where was the ballroom dancing?


Bjorn nodded approvingly as Erik interacted with Nolan. Any onlookers would notice his in-charge body language, whether consciously or otherwise. And laughing at a witty comment Erik made was a good idea, so Bjorn helped him along via an appreciative chuckle. "I suppose we shouldn't gang up on Mr. Reynolds too much, Erik," he said somewhat dramatically.

"Oh of course, of course," he said upon Erik's departure. "I was just thinking of visiting the refreshment table, myself. Mr. Reynolds, I feel as if I may have overstepped a bit, giving you too hard of a time, perhaps." Which of course was to undermine his confidence, but he need not broadcast that intention. "Will you allow me to bring you anything?"
Nolan straightened his glasses. The more he talked with this man, the more he was certain that Bjorn had a death grip on his candidate. He'd liked Erik when he first met him, thought they could be friends or team up--but now, all thoughts of that were down the drain. Nolan was slowly starting to see who the REAL enemy was.

Where was his campaign manager when he needed him??? He was at WAR here and his backup was nowhere to be found!

"Oh not at all--this is politics, if you can't stand a little criticism, you need to get out," Nolan said with a polite smile. If this team thought that Nolan was just some nerd who was going to sit by and let people walk all over him--nope, not going to happen. One good thing about being married to Ginger for so long--he had picked up quite a few tips on how to be a sneaky little badger.

"How kind of you, if you wouldn't mind just bringing me a pumpkin juice, thank you," he said, taking the man up on his offer. Or maybe he shouldn't have. What if he POISONED him??? This was one of those moments in politics where you had to make a snap decision, and maybe since Nolan got the feeling they didn't really see him as much of a threat, he'd be safe from any poisonous sabotage.

Honora, being fashionably late, was a very happy manager. Corin had done so well at the debate in Hogsmeade! The voters were such party poopers though, he should have been in the top three. Hoping to find him quickly in this crowd, or that he'd show up because this was a DEBATE that he was IN, Honora scanned the room for a familiar face. Honestly, she found none. Yet. There were plenty of faces she could hold a conversation with just so easily though, it was simply too hard to choose. Until she spotted one of the other managers.

At the last debate she had said and shared things with total strangers which she normally didn't do, and she had been quite eloquent too. It wasn't like her. Livia never ever spoke or divulged things about herself unless forced and even then she did it carefully. So her drin had been spiked.

Stopping at the entrance next to the man she had followed she gave him a friendly glance. "Hello, any idea when the debate will start?" Letting her eyes drift over the people mingling around she spotted her candidate in conversation with a beautiful brunette. Livia would go find him later for a chat. Smoothing out her red dress she wondered where exactly her date had gotten to. A date which she hadn't asked for.

Stephen then noticed a person smiling and standing next to him. Pretty lady with that smile, of course you have to smile back. Which Stephen did.

Stephen looked at her as his brain processed for answer but then again the whole BoG member thing was not in his schedule of events. He has heard of this in the Daily Prophet.

Good gracious, there were just some things that happened at the first debate Honora would rather not remember, but she could share that with Livia, couldn't she? They were in the same boat, so to speak. "LIVIA!" Honora's loud greeting couldn't be missed. Arms were spread open wide from an obvious hug in the near future as she walked over to the woman. And here was the hug! Just as if they were old friends. "How are you? You're looking so lovely tonight."

Oh, and gentleman. No, Honora did not miss him. The redhead took the man's hand, whether he held it out or not, and shook it. "Good evening! Honora O'Fay. It's a pleasure to meet you, sir." Never had been one to understand personal space, this one.

"Its all right." Livia stated. "Someone in charge will probably make us aware of the debates start." She said confidently. If not then she would complain to the appropriate person. It was crucial after all that she could be supportive of her candidate and to observe his opponents. It was now that Atticus needed to start showing his potential and hopefully come in the top three in this debate.

Shaking her head Livia replied. "No Im one of the candidate's managers. Im Livia Frost." She introduced herself and extended a nail-polished hand towards him. "Do you work for the ministry Mister?"


SPOILER!!: Mr Nathaniel

"Livia, you're looking lovely in that dress." He said with a smile of approval as he made his way over to her. He took a moment to glance around the room for his candidate again. Still no sign of her, this meant he had more time to chat. "You and your candidate all set for the debate?" Just a curious question he thought to ask. During the last debate they all seemed prepared...some a little over prepared but this was a different setting and there would be a whole new set of questions for the candidates to mess up with.


Letting her eyes drift over the people circling the entrance area Livia saw the man, Nathaniel whom she had spoken to at the previous debate come towards her long before he arrived at her side. She was not comfortable with how much she had shared with him. At that debate her tongue had turned her thoughts into words too freely. Greeting him she said politely. "Evening Nathaniel!"

"Why thank you. Its just a dress but thank you for the compliment." She said as she smoothed out her red dress and dusted off some leftover floo powder still stuck to hem of her dress. "Yes we are set. Im confident that Mr Alredge will do well in the debate." Livia commented with confidence and faith in her candidate. "Are you and Mrs Dacosta prepared for the debate too? She was in the bottom three after the votes if I'm not misremembering right?" How did you bounce back from that? Probably with lots of pep talk, better strategy and well luck.


SPOILER!!: Hugging Honora

Livia was just about to ask the men around her if they wanted to accompany her to the buffet table when Honora happened. There was no better word for it. One minute Livia was preparing to leave for the food the next she was engulfed in a big hug. Trying to breath and feeling her panic rise as her eyes widened she quipped out what she hoped was a friendly greeting to the redbrownish haired, rotund woman. "Honora. You look lovely tonight. I'm splendid." Or she would be when Honora stopped invading her personal space. Livia didn't dislike hug's she just disliked unforseen hugs and surprises. "Are you looking forward to the debate?"

Even if that classmate had thought it was wierd that Abigail then Chapman had introduced herself so openly Abigail did not care at all. Yet now as she was starting a new job the preassure to make a good impression was hard. Was it considered egotistical to go up and greet a random somebody, was it like you thought you owned the place? Abby was just friendly and she was desperate to meet all these people, yet how to do it?

Abigail followed her husbands point, of course she knew where it was as after all she was a woman a most of the questions women ask they already know the answer. "lets so check out what they are serving then. I am starving again." she told Gabriel. She was always starving, until she realized that she would have to make the food herself and that was when her hunger pangs forgot themselves. "Is that okay with you? Or should we dance first? If we dance first we will be much more hungry yet if we eat first then I might get a stitch" she said getting all analytical. Then she stopped, "whatever actually, I don't really care as long as I am with you" she said affectionately

Nod. That was fine with him. He was starving and the thought of food comforted him just a little. Hopefully the food was good around here.

Dance? Blink. He stared. Ummm...yeah that was not happening. Not today at least. The Goodman eyed the dancefloor and cringed. "How about we--" He was interrupted by his wife whom had pulled him along and now had just began speaking to someone else.

Mellow.Alright then. If she needed him to do that, he'd have no option but to pretend it was alright. His wife should have known he was not a fan of people though. "Erm...Nice to meet you, Mr McMillian." Or not so nice, because he was hungry and wanted food at the current moment. He tried to signal this to his wife hoping she'd understand.

"Hello, are you Zacharias McMillian, the junior under secretary? Well I am Abigail Goodman, a member of the board of Electors and the new receptionist at the Minister's office." She paused and smiled more, this was great meeting new people in such a relaxing setting. In his office it would have to be more formal. Oh yeah her husband, "and this is my husband.. Gabriel" she said nudging her husband. She then looked at her husband, "Gabriel, this is Zacharias McMillian, the Junior Under secretary and he is the man I will be reporting to on my first day'. Hopefully her husband will have his manners and behave socially well.

Dance? Blink. He stared. Ummm...yeah that was not happening. Not today at least. The Goodman eyed the dancefloor and cringed. "How about we--" He was interrupted by his wife whom had pulled him along and now had just began speaking to someone else.

Mellow.Alright then. If she needed him to do that, he'd have no option but to pretend it was alright. His wife should have known he was not a fan of people though. "Erm...Nice to meet you, Mr McMillian." Or not so nice, because he was hungry and wanted food at the current moment. He tried to signal this to his wife hoping she'd understand.


He was about to ask Konrad if he saw the other members of the Board, when his attention was caught by a lady tugging her husband along.

Alas! Maybe these people have telepathic senses, because they come one by one. "Yes, yes I am, but you can call me Zach" he said extending his hand to the lady and then to the gentleman.

"Ah, yes! I got a memo yesterday about a few more people in the Board and about the new employees." He said and then he looked at Konrad and back to the lady, "Oh and this is Mr. Konrad Scherfig, a member of the Board as well and one of your colleague up in the Minister's Office." he said introducing the two.

By the look on her husband's face it was obvious he was not up for dancing. Abby just shrugged thinking that one day her husband will change and be more positive and not mind dancing and all.
Thankfull her husband was polite as to greet that man... Abby was still wondering why her husband hated people so much, yet she shrugged it off with her usual 'one day he will change.. its the woman that makes the man'.

She got the hint a bit too late as the man replied and she was now thankfully stuck in a conversation

Sarah shook the man's hand politely. "Okay, Zach it is. Some people call me Abby, that is mainly because it has less syllables then A-bi-ga-il, so I respond to both" she said.

He got a memo... that ministry was organised it seemed! Well it had to be.
OOOOH... Another person to meet.. awesome! "Hello Mr Scherfig" interesting surname, ending in --fig. All of Abigail's life her name had ended in -man, first Chapman and now Goodman. "Pleased to meet you, my name is Abigail Goodman. I look forward to working with you" She knew better this time not to request her husband meet that guys as well formally. Her husband could do as he wished. Now... about the problem that her hubbie was hungry. Abigail had forgotten that she was hungry by now as she was so thoroughly enjoying herself. She then sent a silent signal back to her husband that said 'I see that you are hungry, just wait, it won't take long'. That Comrade Scherfig had an interesting name. Were his parents communistic that they called him Comrade?

"And its really good to know that your candidate is confident at her stance. I will be looking forward to her's and the others arguments" he said looking at the other folks around them.


"It's a pleasure Mr. McMillan." Weren't things better when one offered their name. It was good that they were on the same page now. "And believe me when I say the woman is a very confident one." He'd never met such a strong willed woman before...maybe it was the pregnancy.

"And I suppose you're here to enjoy the debates in the capacity of a voter, yes? Do you have any idea who you might be leaning towards?"

It was important to gather intel like this; know where the crowd was swaying. So far it wasn't looking very good for Ms. Dacosta but this was a new debate and these were new people.


SPOILER!!: Loudres

"Yes, it does seem pretty fancy," she nodded in approval. She never knew the Minister could hold such a marvelous event. As to how confident she was, Lourdes wanted to tell him that it wasn't his business but she was trying to be professional and not rude. "I'd scaled it a nine out of ten, but I'm sure I'll gain what's left once I'm on stage." True.

Nathaniel Black. That was strange. Lourdes examined him for a while and then offered the man a small smile. "Nice to meet you," she said. "I'm Lourdes Black." Oh, was that odd? The blonde didn't know if they were distant cousins or whatever relation they had. Hem hem. "Are you a new Ministry employee?" He didn't tell her that, or anything related, yet. All Lourdes knew was that this man, she didn't employ.


He nodded his agreement. The hogsmeade debate was pretty impressive but it was mainly set up by the students and as creative as students could be they would never have the resources that Ministry workers did. "That rating seems reasonable. I can see that my tax galleons are going to good use." Or were they? Persons who had no interest in these debates would most likely have disagreed. Probably would have thought the money would have been better spent on other things. "Do you think you're any more nervous, knowing that you'll be presenting for the people you work with this time?"

Would you look at that. Another Black. "The pleasure's all mine Ms. Black." How interesting. The only other Black he knew was his grandmother. It was worth looking into..."No, I worked her at one point in my younger life but it didn't suit me so I took over a bar instead." He loved owning and working at the bar. His hours were good, the people were friendly and they was no mundane work ritual. "How's the Department Head life treating you?"

SPOILER!!: Livia

"Why thank you. Its just a dress but thank you for the compliment." She said as she smoothed out her red dress and dusted off some leftover floo powder still stuck to hem of her dress. "Yes we are set. Im confident that Mr Alredge will do well in the debate." Livia commented with confidence and faith in her candidate. "Are you and Mrs Dacosta prepared for the debate too? She was in the bottom three after the votes if I'm not misremembering right?" How did you bounce back from that? Probably with lots of pep talk, better strategy and well luck.


"Anytime." Compliments came easy to him once he saw something worth complimenting. If something looked nice then there had to be acknowledgment. It was like second nature to him by now. "That's good, very good. If we don't have confidence in them it doesn't usually end well."

Then she went and brought that up. His smile got just a bit tighter as he looked at her. "That. She is, but we're not going to let that bother us too much. This is a new platform, there are new voters and we're confident that this time will be better than the last." And seeing as he truly believed this, he wouldn't let it bother him too much. "They're a funny thing, elections, they start out one way and end another." He added with a wink. He had no idea who things would go from here but the idea now had him intrigued.

"Well then Abby, I'll see you in the office on Monday?" he said giving the sweet woman a smile. Her husband doesn't seem to be a very enthusiastic one.

He seems to be a nice fellow and a perfect partner for his candidate. He nodded when he was asked if he came here in a voter's capacity but he just smiled when he was asked he was he inclined to.

"My position at the moment won't let me answer such questions." Being Head of the Board of Electors needs him be impartial, which he is.

"Although I can say is that I am here to be fair and just. To listen to every points and arguments of the candidates." he gave a smile to Mr. Black. He knows deep inside of him that the reason he was picked for the job is that he is fair and impartial.
