She added remembering the time at Hogwarts she feel down a staircase after tripping and ended up in the hospital wing.

"It's really more for the lifts safety than my own." Alba chuckled. Okay she really just wanted the exercise, but that seemed more personal than necessary.... for now. "We got the memo problem solved now." She added, in fact Alba wasn't even certain that there was a memo issue everyone or just on their floor. She hadn't gone that far into the investigation.

And then the question about the muggle world ... how did she play this. Cool like she totally didn't move to the muggle world with very ex boyfriend because she was 'madly' in love or be truthful and tell the whole sob story that he dropped her like a bad habit 8 years and got married to some nobody just 6 months later?? .... yeah ... definitely the cool route .. or somewhere in between.

"Well it was the classic foolish young girl following the "boy of her dreams"" Alba made air quotes around the boy of her dreams comment. "Things didn't work out, and now I came back to where I belong." Of course Alba hadn't removed magic from her life all together, she still used it a home. "But enough about me." Alba wanted to change the subject.... "How exactly does one become an ambassador?" Now that job sounded like fun, see the world and a diplomat ... Alba loved to travel!

Humor…again. It was endearing her to Valentin, well, as much as one could endear themselves to Valentin. Better then humor, it was self-deprecating humor, which Valentin thought the best kind. Not that he engaged in it himself. Valentin Roux never did anything that degraded himself, but that didn’t mean he couldn’t take joy in others’ humor. Still…he was surprised to hear her say that she only had broken something once. He had a feeling that she might not be telling the truth though.

And then she lost some points for telling him that she had followed a boy into the muggle world. ” Anyoné zat makés you give up a part of you, isn’t wairth yur tim.” He realized he had spoken aloud and snapped his jaw shut, teeth grinding a little.

He was getting irritated with himself and therefore was happy for the subject change, even if it wasn’t a topic he liked discussing. Which was odd, because one would think someone as arrogant as Valentin would enjoy talking about himself. ” Well, ai started wairkeng wiv tradeng standards. Ét zen a posishé-on opened on le francais wizardeng seats ét ai applied. Aftair zat, ai sairt of just fell into thengs.” He really didn’t want to get into the technicalities of the position.
