Doom and Gloom

Doom and Gloom

Postby Maya Gravel » Sat Jul 15, 2017 2:13 pm

After that first run in with Cecil, Maya had all but forgotten him within a few days. With a war going on and the strain of running a double life working at both St. Mungo's and the underground clinic, that information had just been scuttled along into the clutter of her mind and lost.

The war had taken on a darker turn. The Muggleborn Commission was in full swing now, the aurors had all become snatchers that worked alongside former Death Eaters, and Bertrand had just been arrested for sedition. His trial was today.

Cecil had just gotten into the lift to attend the trial in at the Wizengamot chambers when Maya rushed after him in the awkward skittering run that women are forced to adopt in high heels, a large purse bobbing at her side. She practically threw herself at the door to stop him and cried out frantically, "Hold the lift, please!"

He hadn't forgotten her, but largely that was because she'd been involved in one of the sharper turns along the downward spiral of his career at the Ministry. She wasn't a cornerstone or anything, but whenever his fingers brushed over that spot on his head and he recalled that day, she was part of it.

Cecil had a tired, strained expression on his features-- resting exhaustion face-- but when he heard the voice his face shifted into an automatic friendly smile and his hand shot out, murmuring a soothing charm at the lift, lest it bite his arm off, "Not a problem." he assured her, only then recognizing Maya, "Oh, hey!"

"Oh, hey." Maya pushed a little extra warmth in her tone as she saw him. Smiling tightly, her brows corkscrewed as she tried to remember his name. "You're, um... the quidditch player, right?"

Distractedly, her gaze swept over to the floor numbers, but she saw that she was going to the same floor as him and merely hit the door close button. She was dressed professionally, in a white skirt suit and a coordinated two tone purse.

"Yeah, ah, Cecil." he introduced himself again. He was dressed in a tailored suit, though not the most expensive or stylish it still looked good on him (not much DIDN'T iykwim,) "Not in the clinic today?"

Maya shook her head, a small, tense shake. "No. I've got to testify today." Indicating his suit with a flick of her eyes down his body, she asked, "You?"

"Moral support." His lips thinned, "Testify for who?"

Her lips thinned similarly. "The Rosebloom case."

According to word of mouth, the family's home had been torched to the ground, the mother killed, and the children tortured by repeated use of the Cruciatus curse. They had been suspected of hiding muggleborns, and a group of Snatchers, a mix of aurors and death eaters, had been sent after them. There had been the Bishops, St. Maur, Pips, and several others involved whose names escaped Cecil at the moment. The case had brought out a small stirring of public outcry due to the brutality involved, and so a trial had been scheduled to determine if the Snatchers had used unnecessary force. Maya would be testifying against Cecil's co-workers, but to anyone who wasn't blinded by naivete, it was clear the trial was going to be sham.

His brows lifted a bit, studying her anew, "Oh-- yeah? You testifying or--?"

"Yeah, they just need me to talk a bit about any injuries I found." Her tone was careful not to express feeling one way or another about the incident, and she showed him a small taut smile.

"Yeah." She nodded curtly, her smiled ironed down to line.

He cleared his throat and shifted his weight slightly, "So for the, ah, prosecution, then."

Maya nodded stiffly, and her gaze averted from him. Quietly, she said, "It's probably all a formality anyway."

He cleared his throat again, almost a cough-- or maybe he had a lump it was hard to say-- and nodded, "Yeah I guess so." his voice was purposefully firm and level. The doors sprang open on their level and he waited for her to step out ahead of him.

Stiffly, eyes straight ahead, she walked out of the lift. At first it seemed like she wasn't going to say anything else but after a few steps she paused. Just barely turning her head to address him from over her shoulder, she inquired mildly, "Moral support for who?"
