It's been a hectic couple of days, at the Ministry of Magic. Nymphadora has slowly been excavating her desk from the detritus that accumulated whilst she was gone, which was considerable even though she owled work in from home nearly every day.

Right now all she wants is a cuppa and a biscuit, but it's not quite teatime. Suck it up, Tonks, she tells herself sternly, and scribbles furiously at the report in front of her.

There is a rustle, from behind her.

It's very faint; she might not even hear it, really.

Then, a paper airplane alights on her desk. It's not the usual sort of paper airplane that you see winging around the Ministry. This one was thrown.

Inside, it reads, Hey, baby. Come here often?

There's a redhead leaning against a cubicle a little down the way.

"Hey."

Bernard goes like this: >.>

"Well. Aron blushes so prettily."

He checks his watch.

"It's teatime, isn't it?"

He strolls over and rests his chin on his arms on the wall of her cubicle, looking down at her.

"'Kay."

He's staring.

There is a decided rustling as 45 aurors lift their heads from various tasks to see what, exactly, is going on.

Bernard grins unrepentantly. "Far as I can see, you're the one being distracting."

He winks at one mousy, brown-haired new hire peeking over her cubicle to see what the commotion is, and she ducks her head again, blushing.

He's totally giggling. "He started it!" They enter the lift; a short, balding wizard who started to step in suddenly steps out again.

"...Are we that scary?"

Bernard eyes the second cup balefully and takes a sandwich.

"So, have you visited the healer for blood loss from papercuts yet?"

He puts quite a bit of sugar into the cup before drinking; even then, it's a bit of a strain to get it down.

"Slow. Aron's been stepping up more lately, and I want to give him that chance, but, Jesus. He's methodical as fuck."

"Exactly. I keep hoping he'll, you know. Speed up." A sigh, and another bite of sandwich. "He'll do it."

Gosh, that tea is interesting, all of a sudden.

"She's... God. She's very, very quiet."

A hesitant nod.

"Most days, I guess. We're all kind of on eggshells. I've got her working alone and with Jonathan mostly -- she seems to get on well with him, and he's got a much lighter touch than I do."

Bernard smiles, and sips his tea without thinking, immediately making a face.

"Yeah. He's got good ideas about defensive weapons, which isn't so much my forte. It works well."
