Default Office of Department Head Simone Krafft
Unforgivably Cursed | adultescent


Chic and classy, yet not overly feminine, is what one might describe the decor upon entrance to the office of Magical Transportation Department Head, Kendra Jordan-Durand. Coordinating blacks and creams fill the room from the walls to the furniture; cushiony chairs are arranged for her guests comfort, while her polished black desk often holds the paperwork of her busy day. On the top of her desk one would also find several framed pictures of her family, including her only daughter.

Her door is usually open unless she has some private business to attend to, but either way, she does appreciate a knock before you are welcomed inside.

Chloe was anxious because even though she'd been promoted from Portkey Recovery Specialist to Portkey Manufacturer after only a year, this next step would be a much huger step for her. And yet, after six years in the role, she felt readier than ever. She only hoped that she could prove her worth to the new Department Head. At least it was a female again; for some reason female bosses seemed easier to negotiate with. Maybe because they understood the struggles. Or maybe it was her imagination and they were equally as difficult, if not more so.

The extra income could help, of course, being that she was raising her son on her own and now a new fur baby. But that wasn't reason enough to offer her Grant Cooper's old position. Merlin, when had Grant Cooper even left? Years really did blur together after Hogwarts. It seemed ages ago even that she'd been pregnant and yet it was only four years ago. Pull yourself together, Chloe Michelle. You are strong and fierce and independent. You got this. She mentally reminded herself, wiping her palms on her skirt, grateful she'd chosen dark colours today.

Knock, Knock.

Already, the work load of the department head seemed to be a little more than what Kendra was expecting. But she was determined to not feel overwhelmed and told herself that it was a transitional period. She was more than capable of the job and she simply needed to get settled in and things would all fall into place. There were just so many loose ends that needed to be tied up though.

It seemed that this department had a rather high turnover rate and she already needed to juggle some positions around, especially in order to put some of her plans in place. She had just pulled some files in front of her as she thought about how that might work when she heard a knock on her door.

"You may enter, please!" she called out to whomever was on the other side of the door. Hopefully they also came with a strong cup of coffee.

No, she didn't come bearing coffee and truth be told, she probably should have. Especially if it might have been more a guarantee to get what she wanted. Although she was a Gryffindor; surely that didn't require brown-nosing with gifts? It never had before, at least. What she really needed, she supposed, was her brothers' wit and manipulation skills. Or well, maybe not. Maybe she was just overthinking this. When did she become such an overthinker? Usually she'd been one to just act on impulse, which she reckoned she was doing now since she hadn't really prepared for this moment.

Entering at the words from within, she offered her brightest smile. "Kendra. Hello." Merlin, she looked tired? "Do you have a few moments?"

She would have been mortified if she knew that someone thought she looked tired, especially one of her employees. Even if it was true, Kendra did her best to maintain her professional appearance, and that included looking fresh and ready to tackle the day. Regardless, she donned a firm but friendly smile as her office door swung open.

"Chloe... yes, of course," she nodded to her employee, then gestured to the chairs in front of her desk. "Please have a seat. What can I do for you today?" The younger woman had her full attention as she looked up from her paperwork, sliding that just off to the side. She was eager to get to know the workers on Level Six, not to mention offer her assistance as much as she was able.

Well lucky for Kendra, Chloe was not that intuitive unless it was about her adorable and sweet son. Or her feline. Or her brothers. Or her parents. Or her best friends. Really it wasn't anything personal and she liked her co-workers well enough but not enough to care whether they got enough sleep, as long as they did their job.

Another thing about Chloe? She wasn't one to beat around the bush. She nodded at the woman, before taking a seat as directed. "Right, so uh, as you could see from my files, I've been employed here for, well, six months after I graduated Hogwarts, when Ms Purcell hired me as a Portkey Retrieval Specialist. So almost nine years and it's been a great experience. I mean I know University wasn't really an option for me and the pay is pretty decent, but I've been wondering about more recently." She was rambling, which was probably due to nervousness. "Anyway, the raises have been okay, but I've been wondering about more responsibility and realized that Grant Cooper's former position of Master Portkey General, hasn't been filled yet and would like to inquire of an internal promotion." There. Done. Surely Kendra Jordan-Durand was aware of her immense loyalty, having been in the same job for as long as she had. She knew the Portkey Division better than anyone, even if she couldn't deny that when she applied 8.5 years ago, she'd been secretly hoping for something else.

Ah, right to the point. Kendra certainly appreciated that sort of quality in a person, and most especially in her employees. While she welcomed an opportunity to get to know Chloe and others who worked on Level Six a little better, she also didn't need her time wasted. And she would guess that Chloe felt the same.

She listened to what the younger woman had to say and nodded slightly here and there, though she did not speak just yet. It was true that she needed to fill several positions, some of them being managerial ones, and Master Portkey General was among them. She would also agree that the woman sitting in front of her had enough experience to be promoted to the job. But she wasn't sure that she would just simply hand it to her. Perhaps she would conduct a short interview just now.

Rising from her seat, she wordlessly crossed the room to the filing cabinet and retrieved two files. As she returned to her desk, Kendra opened up both in front of her before looking back at Chloe. "You certainly have the experience to be considered for that position. Besides your years of employment here, how else do you feel qualified? Why are you the right person for this job?" She was truly interested in what she had to say and she briefly scanned some of the contents of the files before looking up at her again, expectantly.

Chloe was always too the point. Sometimes to the point of recklessness, but that was a different story. She was surprised though how easily Kendra seemed to be getting along with her desires.

So why was she right the person other than her years of experience? "So over the course of my employment here, in addition to helping with the Portkey crisis a few years ago, I've also helped in spearheading on getting the Uber Apparators off the ground," quite literally too. "And even dabbled in broom testing when there was a mixup there. So while portkeys has been a mainstay of my job title, I'm willing to lend a hand in all aspects." Multi-tasker, if you will.

Being a no-nonsense kind of woman, Kendra typically got right to the point herself, and so she appreciated that in other people. She didn't care to beat around the bush or have her time wasted. And in that vein, Kendra gave Chloe her full attention as it was her turn to speak in this impromptu interview.

Portkey crisis.. assisting with the implementation of Uber Apparators...broom testing... Kendra nodded to herself and jotted down a few notes in Chloe's file, as she continued to listen. And she seemed quite eager, which was a great quality, and it also reminded her of something that would be pertinent in the coming days.

"How do you feel about apparition and about teenagers?" It was relevant, even if it didn't seem so just yet.

Wait what?? Apparition and teenagers? Well she had helped in the uber apparator startup but Chloe guessed that probably wasn't relevant to the question since she had already mentioned that.

Pausing thoughtfully, her thoughts flickered to her younger brothers, whom although not teenagers anymore she recalled their teenage antics. And then there was her cousins who were in the pre-teen stages. And then there was her son, only a toddler really.

"Apparition is definitely a good mode of transport. Reliable and quick. As far as teenagers. They're young and maybe reckless sometimes but we were all teenagers once and really they just to be given the opportunity to be engaged." She couldn't help herself now. "But Ms... Jordan-Durand. What does teenagers have to do with the portkey master role?"

His time in Asia during the winter holidays had been a very productive one, not just in reestablishing and fortifying previous treaties but a little trip to Hakone to visit his son and spend a bit of time around Himitsumahou had given him a lot more to think about than he had originally anticipated. It had come from observing an Ancient Runes lesson, one of his own personal favorites and he was quite pleased that his grandson had taken to it as well. It had sparked an idea inside the Minister's head, one he could not wait another moment to share with Kendra.

One hand behind his back, cupping something against his person, Charles used his other to knock on his department head's door. He probably should have sent an interdepartmental memo ahead of himself, but they were STILL malfunctioning and unreliable for some reason.

It had already been a busy morning and Kendra was out in the department making her rounds and ensuring her employees were up to date on some of the new floo regulations that were being put in place. They were minor changes, but ones that everyone in Transportation needed to be aware of and knowledgeable.

And as just a quick break Kendra stepped down to the level below to get herself a cup of coffee. She was just on her way back to her office when she noticed a familiar figure in front of the door.

"Good morning, Minister," she greeted him, coming around his side to sneak past him and open up her door, gesturing for him to follow her inside. "I hope you weren't waiting long." They didn't have a scheduled meeting, did they? It wasn't like her to forget such things. And she had been in such a rush that she didn't notice what he might have been holding behind his back, but she quickly took a seat to give him her full attention now that she was back.

Oh, well, would you look at that.

"No not at all. Only just arrived," he assured Kendra as his nostrils filled with the pleasant aroma of her coffee. He needed to fetch himself a cup after this. "I was wondering if I may have a word with you about something rather pertinent." He then revealed from behind his back, with no further explanation, a rather ornate looking box. "Picked this lovely thing up while visiting my son over the break. He is the headmaster at Himitsumahou, you know." Was Kendra around the same age as Ryunosuke? He would have to...ahem...do a bit of research on the subject.

Good. Scheduled meeting or not, Kendra would have been embarrassed to leave the minister waiting on her for long, even with her attending to her own work. But she didn't mention that, instead keeping her focus on what his reason for this impromptu meeting.

"Certainly." She sipped her coffee, curious about what was pertinent as it sounded somewhat urgent. But it appeared that he wanted to show her a souvenir from Japan. "Oh, how interesting," she replied, leaning forward to peer at the box, tilting her head as she considered it. "Is it a puzzle box?" It was a lovely box, though she wasn't sure what was so pertinent about it.

"Mm, is he?" She sipped her coffee again. "No, actually, I did not realize that he was the headmaster there," she mused aloud. Charles must be quite proud.

Will his paternal instincts had him wanting to talk up his son a bit, he tucked that aside. Boggarts and returning Hogwarts to its rightful place slightly outweighed his son's martial status.

"Yes, very..." He had a moment of weakness, an urge to indulge, but was able to hold his tongue...but literally biting it. "He often uses these little beauties in assisting with spirit infestations that annually plague the school. It's only to be expected given the location...but they are rather effective little things. Says he was inspired by an old muggle cartoon or comic of some variety...but no matter. These little ornate boxes have many dark nooks inside of them...perfect for a boggart to hide in, wouldn't you say?" He had a point, it was just taking him a little to get to it. "I was wondering if there was a possibility for your department to...modify these a bit? Your emergency portkeys are terribly efficient."

"I was wondering if there was a possibility for your department to...modify these a bit? Your emergency portkeys are terribly efficient."

Perhaps he could be persuaded to leave it with her... though her eyes snapped up at a particular word.

"A boggart, hmm?" She lowered her eyes to the box again, thinking she knew what he was starting to get at. "Is there one in here now?" She took a sip of her coffee, then smiled. "I think we can be up for the challenge." That was a rather interesting prospect indeed. She held out her hand for the box, wanting to inspect it closer. "May I?"

As had he, right now his focus on the well-being and future education of his grandchildren. Particularly in light of the things he had heard from his grandson about the state of things at Beauxbatons. The Minister had a migraine just thinking about yet another trip to France.

"Yes, actually. In the....bottom left compartment if I am not mistaken. Can fit a few in there as it turns out," he explained as he handed over the box to her. "Go ahead and keep that for your own inspections and research. I'll have Fletcher bring over the rest later this afternoon."

Headed into her office Simone set down her coffee and grabbed a stack of papers, one being the application of the person following her. Turning she made a few notes on another thing she was looking at on her desk before taking a seat.

Now that she was sitting she looked up waiting expectantly of the woman to follow her in. This should be quick and easy, at least she was expecting it to be. Then maybe if Stella wanted to show the woman out she could and Simone could get back to her busy day and some more important things.

Still with an enthusiastic bounce to her step, though a more muted and mature one now, Candi entered the office and immediately felt a sort of icy chill tears down her spine and caused her skin to goosebump unpleasantly. Reaching across herself to rub her arm and rekindle her spirit a bit, she kept her attention on the department head and gracefully slid into one of the seats in front of the desk.

"Are...we waiting for my instructor?" she asked curiously, because surely the department head had better things to do than administer the apparition examination to someone else. Wetting her lips and glancing at the paperwork on the other woman's desk elicited another sort of unpleasant series of shivers and her stomach to knot. Her paperwork was complete, right? She had looked over the forms and all the reading material so many times that she could duplicate it on a blank piece of parchment with her own hand. So this time she was fairly certain she had completed it thoroughly and correctly.

Chloe was peeved to say the least. She had overheard her younger cousin and friend speaking at the gala and while she didn't know too many of the details she did hear something about welsh dragons and portkeys and it seemed like something as Portkey Master General that should have known about before??? Not to mention there was something about that Milo guy speaking up that had her blood boiling because of course, she too had a child at Hogwarts. A first year. Whom she hadn't heard from since she dropped him off at Kings Cross in September. She didn't even know what house he was sorted into, which she was sure he would have communicated if was able and yet... he wasn't?? Was he okay? Did he even make it to Hogwarts? She didn't know and she'd been fretting terribly about him for months which was probably why she'd been ultimately quiet and reserved throughout the last few months.

But that statue. The minister's speech. The Milo guy. Somehow she managed to keep her fiery gryffindor temper in check, at least until back at work the next business day. When she made her mind up to go straight to Simone Krafft for a chat.

Only problem was that someone was already in Simone's office. As she started to enter after knocking, because she was impatient and wanted to get answers and surely Simone trusted her enough??? But not enough to inform her about portkeys in the dragon reserve? She backpedaled though when seeing the young woman there. "Ms Krafft... we need to ... oh... I can come back."

But not enough to inform her about portkeys in the dragon reserve? She backpedaled though when seeing the young woman there. "Ms Krafft... we need to ... oh... I can come back."


She did watch the young woman come into her office and gave a very tight smile as she took a seat without being given permission, but she would let it slide. The sooner she sat the sooner they could go over a few things and she could be on her way. As Candi looked up and asked her question Simone did check her watch, but not to see if the instructor was running late, no she was waiting on someone else and she needed to know how much longer.

"Miss...." yes, she was going to point out that the woman still hadn't given a last name even if Simone already knew it. "We don't need an instructor today. As you saw at the gala, things have changed a bit at the ministry and rules for our licenses in this department have changed as well. With the new rules it is with most importance that you realize we will be no longer taking applications from muggleborns at this time." Yes, she was aware the woman was at the gala and it had been noted who she had been there with.

Just as she was about to see the woman out her eyes lifted as an employee walked in. "You are find, we were just getting to the point of finished here." Her cold eyes moved back to the muggleborn to let her know she could leave.

Her eyes went from sparkly hopeful to shimmery crestfallen in a matter of seconds. Stunned silent initially, Candi could only mouth the word 'what' a few times while the department head spoke. And when the blonde woman had concluded, the former Hufflepuff did not know where to begin first with her protest. It felt entirely selfish to barge right in to her own personal matters - namely her curiosity as to how the British Ministry knew her blood status when she herself did not know and her records, if any of this nature, were in Brazil - but it was a tingle on her lips that resulted in an enraged tremble. Not even her adoptive parents seemed aware of her blood status...or if they had been then they had never felt it necessary to tell her. But that seemed entirely too self centered as surely she would not be the only one to face this sort of social injustice.

"But...that is...that is entirely immoral and entirely discriminatory!" she protested, not moving from where she sat and her eyes wide in their bewilderment. "I've put in the time...the study...the effort...just as anyone else must...I'm a wizarding citizen of this country...just like everyone else...what does some arbitrarily assigned blood status have to do with anything?"

The door swung open and another woman stepped inside, drawing Candi's attention away from the department head and towards the interruption. It was not lost on the nearly 19-year-old that the woman was attempting to dismiss her. While usually more docile and genteel, situations such as these easily unleashed the fight within her.

"....I... disagree...I do not believe we are nearly done here, department head Krafft...I made this appointment months ago for my apparition license. Disqualification based on blood status is...that's not...that's not right."

What had she walked in to?? Chloe stood in the doorway as she heard Simone speaking to the young woman about no applications from muggleborns? She stared between the two, when Simone stated that they were done here, but the young woman seemed to argue against it and Chloe found herself torn. Did she sacrifice her employment of over a decade to come to the woman's defense? Where did she stand with all this? She'd seen at the gala when the men spoke up against the Minister's speech and how quickly they were taken down. But Simone had seemed reasonable with herself? Was it merely a front?

She took a step forward into the room. "If I may offer my two knuts... but if this woman made her appointment months ago, the new rules weren't in place then, which would mean that the disqualification based on something that just recently happened would be against the own rules and proper codes of conduct." She swallowed before continuing. "The ministry has always been a place of upstanding ethics and moral codes, so the rules of when the appointment was initially made should stand. And there's no good reason why she shouldn't be allowed to sit for her exam. The woman is a witch and that's something that rules cannot change." With another pause and hesitation, she then quickly added, "And besides, I believe you owe it to me."

Simone didn't get up nor did she see the least bit annoyed by the young woman questioning what was going on. She knew she would be questioned, Merlin knew they had been questioned for years, but this was how it was going to be and it was a glorious feeling to be there. Simone didn't speak for a moment, but she pulled a memo out and jotted a few things on it. She wouldn't send it yet, but it was there if she needed.

"Miss Hickinbottom, I know you heard the..." but her words did not get to finish, because Chloe was giving her opinion that no one had asked for. Simone leaned back in her chair and let the woman finish. Her face never changing, she was a patient woman and she could stay calm in many situations, but this woman had not been asked and would have to be told her place it seemed.

Completely ignoring Chloe for now she looked to Miss Hickinbottom. "As I was saying you were there at the gala and you heard the minister. Things have changed and changes are for everyone's best interest. I promise you, you will see how good this is even for your kind." Standing she did send her memo off before turning towards Chloe. "Miss Adara I am your boss and you will listen to what I have to say. No one did ask your two knuts and it is not needed in this meeting that you so rudely interrupted without even setting a meeting with me or knocking. You have no clue what you are speaking about, but the rules even if she had her application in have changed. You will step in line or you will not have a job here." Was that clear? Though Simone might have had an annoyance look on her face thinking about the owing the woman something.

"As for owing you something, I owe you nothing. You work for me and this ministry not the other way around and I think you and some others in this building need to learn that lesson." With a quick flick of her wand she sent a cruciatus curse at Chloe.

Glancing at Candi she raised an eyebrow to see if the woman got the message now.

Things have changed. So did that mean that she had no right to have knowledge of portkeys being used at a Welsh Dragon Reserve? She didn't have time to think about all that though, because apparently her opinion was no longer valued at the Ministry. She regretted trying to speak on the young woman's behalf and argue, but perhaps it was Milo speaking up at the gala that had lit the fire in her. Had she not had a son to raise, who needed school supplies and clothing and of course the tuition, Chloe might have told Simone to take the job and shove it, but unfortunately, she kind of needed the money to continue to be able to provide a good life for herself and her son.


Learn that lesson -- what was she talking ---

Before Chloe had time to completely process what Simone was saying, her body flew back into the wall next to the door and she felt unimaginable pain. It was worse than hours of labour pains she had experienced almost twelve years ago. It was worse than when she broke a bone during a flying lesson. Her five foot five slender frame writhed against the wall like a snake for a few moments before sliding down against the wall, slumped against the door frame.

Owing an explanation or not about what happened at the dragon reserve, Chloe would not be asking Simone any longer. So much for Simone seemingly being reasonable with her. Kendra would have never cast an unforgivable on an employee, but apparently unforgiveables was how things were done around here now.

She did her best to give a subtle nod from her slumped position, even though it still felt like there was pain shooting through her body.
