Except…some incredibly selfish person had finished it and had decided not to make more for the rest of them.

With a dramatic huff, Delyth counted to ten on the spot and closed her eyes for a moment, her mind wandering back to her younger days in the South of France with her family for a brief moment in an effort to calm herself. Usually, she never got this worked up, especially over something as trivial as coffee and yet, here she was…

Tired.

Exhausted.

Worn out.

Depleted of energy.


Oh…

There was a reason why she was this agitated. She had been coming in early every day for the last few months trying to sort of things ready for when Hogwarts started up again and despite it actually starting now, things seemed to be busier than ever on Level One for the Hogwarts Liaison.

Flopping down in a chair, the coffee now slowly filling in the coffee pot, she closed her eyes and massaged her temples. Today was going to be a loooooooo…oooooooong day.

The smell of brewed coffee was not missed as he pushed the door open, now tempted to get a cup of java instead.

He momentarily stopped in his tracks as he saw the woman inside the room having...er, a moment to herself. She looked annoyed, and overworked, and stressed, and River knew that he should just... get on with his business as quietly as possible. The 49-year-old healer slowly and gently closed the door and went on to fix himself a cup of tea. Coffee was tempting, but he needed to detoxify from that stuff given the work load he's been having the couple of months. Helpful stuff, but deadly when consumed in large volumes.

"But Merlin, that coffee smells soooo good..." he thought as he dumped a teabag in his cup and filled it with hot water.


Whose job was it anyway to buy more tea and coffee for the MLE? Not Matt's, he knew that much! He'd have to find out so he could ask them to keep up with their job since the department needed refreshments! What Auror would be able to do an excellent job without a hot drink and sna--

"Healer Reed!!!" Matt exclaimed, seeing the OLD Healer from his school years right there. How long had the man worked in the Ministry for??? Was Matt supposed to know it? Because he didn't. Oops?

Speaking of which, it just occurred to him that his mate Jace had not kept in touch. WOW. Way to go, Jace. Tsk. "How are you, mate!?" They both worked for the Ministry now and so were technically colleagues, huh? LOL, weeeeird. "Long time no see!" The 28 year-old Auror walked right up to the coffee machine and looked at the tiny amount of coffee in the pot. "Merlin." That was going to take actual AGES. Matt had used up a lot of his patience that day (don't ask).

Getting his wand, he tapped the pot, making it fill right up very quickly. Hadn't that woman over there thought to that? Matt assumed she was sitting there with such a loooooong face because she lacked coffee. "The perks of magic, ay?" He casually commented, lifting the pot to show her his good work before pouring two mugs and offering one to her. "Hope you like it strong!" She seemed like she needed it.

Sheesh kebabs.
