Welcome Back

Post by Guest on Fri Jul 12, 2013 10:42 pm

Jericho made his way down the hall on the second level of the Ministry of Magic. He felt weighed down as he took each step closer to his office. He walked past the Head Auror, Alastor Moody's, office, and stopped at the third door on the left. Jericho reached out and grabbed the doorknob that lead to his office, and paused, taking a deep breath. He clenched his jaw and opened the door. His office was just as he had left it six months ago. He just stood there, in the doorway, unable to enter and only able to look in.

Stephan had been anticipating Jericho's return for a while now. He was usually someone he could talk to. Other than Willow, but that was a different story. Noble was kind towards Stephan. Jericho was friendly. Probably the only one in the whole Minsitry who actually had the guts to try and befriend Stephan. So, with no further ado, the day Jericho was scheduled to return, Stephan entered his office and sat quietly in his chair. As the door hissed, Stephan knew his friend was home. "Well well well, someone's been away from a long time." Avery said, spinning the chair and placing his elbows on the desk.

Jericho lowered his head, shaking it, with a giant grin on his face. "I should have known that you were keeping my chair warm for me," he said looking up as his friend, Stephan. "It has been a while, but, you know, it just felt like it was time to come back," he said walking in and hanging his black leather jacket on the hook on the wall, revealing his white button down shirt. He put one forearm against the wall and the put his fist of the other arm on his hip, "She would want me to come back to work..."

Stephan quickly got up, and stretched his back. As always. "Can't let that thing get cold after you being gone for so long," Stephan commented. He liked to tease Jericho every now and then, although now, he'd be going a bit lighter. And he had a big reason to do so. "That she would. Bet if you were still home by now she'd start nagging your ass of. But hey, at least you know she's happy you're being able to live. Moving on will be tough. I can see why,-" Stephan made his way to Jericho, and placed his rough hand on his shoulder. "But never forget the killer is out there. And we're gonna find the bastard."

Jericho looked over his shoulder as Stephan's hand landed on his shoulder. "That she would. Joelle was one of a kind.... Guess she would have to be to put up with my ass, right?" he said with a small smile. "We will find the one responsible. Bet they will gladly make up a cell for him in Azkaban when we do..." Jericho sighed heavily, "Merlin, I miss her," he said pinching the bridge of his nose. After a moment, he let his arm fall heavily to his side. Getting back to work would be what she wanted. She would want him to move on and keep going, but christ it was tough....

Stephan's smirk grew into wide grin. "He doesn't necessarily have to end up in Azkaban. Accidents happen." Stephan was aware Jericho probably knew he was fond of the dark arts. Jericho was still a brother to him, but Stephan grew in a family where he simply had to learn everything his parents and brother wanted. Everything. "I tell you to simply forget the killer for now...once a lead gets up, even I will help you."

"This is very true... Accidents do happen. Who knows, maybe I could get away with something like that, given the circumstances of the situation," he said grinning. Jericho had met Stephan when he was in training to be an Auror and was taken under Stephan's wing. Jericho was well aware that his friend was more fond of the dark side of things, which helped him be fantastic at his job at bodyguard to the Minister. Still, it was nice having him as an older brother figure, a friend he could turn to in his time of need. When Stephan offered to help once they had something, anything, on his wife's killer, he placed his hand on his shoulder, "Thanks. Means a lot coming from you..." Jericho gave his friend's shoulder a squeeze before taking a seat in his chair behind his desk and motioning for him to take the one across from him. "So, anything exciting happen while I was gone?" he asked, knowing that Stephan would know he didn't necessarily mean there at the Ministry.

Stephan laughed immensely. "You surely have been away for a long time. Don't you know what's going on at Hogwarts? It's the damn Tri-Wizard tournament. I just hope no deaths will occur this year. We all know what happened last time." Stephan looked down on the ground. But quickly shrugged off the thought. "In other news, and this may really get you interested, muggle borns have been disappearing. We both know what this is about. They say a certain...Lord is doing this. An assignment came up to go investigate but Aurors are frightened. I guessed you'd easily take up on it." He smirked. He was used to informing Jericho of everything that was going on, normal wizards didn't know. As he was always close to Willow, he knew many things others didn't.

Jericho sat back in his chair, arms crossed across his chest, "I heard about that. Hogwarts and WolfClaw this time around, right?" he let out a whistle. "Should be interesting.... Wonder if they are going to send anyone for security this time," he said. "Muggleborns dissappearing?" Jericho echoed. He had heard whispers of a potential wizarding Lord rising to power, but didn't put much stock into it. Well, until now when the whispers might prove to be more than just that. "No Aurors are stepping up to look into this? That's rubbish. what about Moody?" he said proppng his elbows on his desk, fingertips together thinking. If he was offered a case such as this, he would take it no seconds thoughts. "What all has the Minister said on the matter?" he asked. Being close to someone close to the Minister had its perks, and this was one of them. Anything he could find out to help put together a lead, anything, he would do. It was his job, and he was damn good at it.

Stephan nodded as he pulled up another chair in front of Jericho's desk, "Yup. You heard it right. Durmstrang seemingly backed off this time. Last time they did lose their champion. So it's understandable." Stephan nodded after finishing his sentence. "Possibly yes. Willow is gonna be around for a while so I'll most likely be there with her. If aurors are needed, you should tag along. Everything sounds like it's set to not go sideways this time." Stephan laughed a bit, but quickly gazed back at Jericho's direction. "Some aurors seem to actually favor this...lord. And Moody hasn't been seen. Not by me anyway." Stephan slowly passed his hand by his forehead. "Some say he died. Complete Bullshit if you ask me. He's a tough guy to chew. He's probably investigating somewhere." Stephan knew damn well Moody wouldn't just lay around his office, waiting for death to come get him. "Willow seems to be worried about it. She knows something is going to go down, but she's not sure about the next step she should take. To be honest, information is very scarce these days."

Jericho nodded. He remembered the last tournament and the Durmstrang champion that was killed. It wasn't pretty. "You know that if needed, my name will be at the top of the list for volunteers to go work security if I'm free to do so. You never know what's going to happen with these kinds of tournaments. They can plan all they want and still the unthinkable can happen," he said. At hearing the disturbing news that this supposed lord was gaining followers, some from his own department, Jericho just shook his head. "Dark wizard hunters turning into dark wizard followers... This could turn bad if there is any stock to all these rumors, Stephan," he said raising his blue eyes to his friend. "Moody must be on assignment someplace. He's not gone. He too much of a hard ass to just up and die without a fight. Believe me, if he was dead, we would know about it! It would be all over the Prophet!" Jericho couldn't help but laugh. It was true though. Moody was one of the very best of the best. He leaned back thinking about the Minister and Stephan's comment about what's to come next, "I have faith in the Minister. She's never steered us wrong before... But, this kind of situation hasn't really cropped up before."

Alastor made his way through out the halls. The other aurors looked at him with extremely curious eyes. "Ah Moody, you're a sight for sore eyes." Alastor quickly eyed his fellow auror. "Shut it McGregor. Is Young back yet?" Moody was not in the mood to play any sort of games. The other auror nodded, as Moody made his way to the room. He barged through the door. "Young, there's a man coming to kill you." He acknowledged Stephan, by simply making a small salute. He was there in Hogsmeade, and over heard everything. "That unspeakable, Blackwell, threw you under the bridge. Now a man is coming for you. And from the looks of it, its personal."

Jericho looked up when Moody barged through his office door. "Speak of the devil and he shall appear," he said at the sight of his boss. "Excuse me?" he asked, making sure he heard him correctly. "Blackwell didn't mention anything about that when I passed in on the stairs coming up here! Bastard... What a way to start after being gone so long...." he said pinching the bridge of his nose. Death threats were nothing to Jericho, any Auror really, but if it was personal... Well, those confrontations tend to be a little more...intense. "Any idea when we should except said killer?" Jericho asked getting up and walking to his office window, arms crossed across his chest, and leaned against the window frame, blue eyes focused and hard as he looked at his friend and then his boss.

Moody looked at his pocket watch, checking the hours. "He gave us some time to prepare, as he had something to do." Moody pointed out the office's window. "I know a fun fact about him. He's Lucius's Malfoy uncle. A Malfoy is coming for you." Alastor commented with a smirk. "Don't know anything else about him. But if he's like Abraxas, we may have some trouble." Moody signaled for Stephan to leave, as this was Auror business. If someone was coming to hunt down Young, Moody was gonna be there to help. As Stephan got up, Alastor quickly closed the door. "I don't know what this man is capable of Jericho, but he and another man killed in the least ten men without problems. Stephan, thinking again, you better stay. We never know if he's truly coming alone." Stephan nodded and set his hand on Jericho's shoulder. Alastor was glad Young was back. He was a talented auror, and one day, were Alastor to perish in battle, he'd like Jericho to take his place.

"A Malfoy... Fantastic," Jericho said under his breath. He wasn't stupid. Jericho knew that the Malfoy's were known for their powers and such. At hearing about Malphoy's latest exploits, Jericho nodded and looked at the floor thinking, planning. When Stephan placed a hand on his shoulder, he looked up, "What's the plan, then?" Although the Malfoy's were powerful, it didn't cause Jericho any high stress. He was used to going up against all manner of dark wizards as an Auror. However, knowing that both Moody and Stephan were going to be there helped to ease was ill ease he was feeling about the matter that was to unfold.

Stephan smirked. The plan was the same as usual. Protect the place. Although when he heard Moody say Malfoy his mind shifted immediately. Abraxas wouldn't come here after what happened. And Lucius Malfoy was this guy's nephew. That simply let one person loose. Philip. "Plan's the same as always. Protect this place, and kick the bastard's ass." Stephan looked at Moody, nodding his head. "Alastor, how should everything go?"

Alastor enjoyed Stephan's wording, although he didn't show it. The plan was indeed that, with just some complex parts to it. "For now, we're gonna split. And we're not telling this to anyone. The bigger the commotion, the easier it gets for Malfoy." He scratched his jaw, looking towards Jericho. "Jericho will get to the floo network. The only way Malfoy could escape. There you will remain. Stephan will patrol the bathroom entrance. And I, will find the bastard." He said, quickly dispatching a fly with his arm. He moved his hand, as he opened the door. "Get to it."

Jericho nodded as he heard he plan, not surprised at all by it. He grabbed his leather jacket of the hook as he walked past Moody and took a left to head down the back stairs to the main level of the Ministry to take his place as guard at the openeings for the floo network, cracking his knuckles as he went. He didn't know which Malfoy was coming, but what he did know was that when he got there, they would be ready for him.

Stephan accepted the plan, as Jericho left. He put his hand on Moody's shoulder, and followed Jericho to the main level. There, he saw Young get into place and smirked. Seemed like everything was gonna get done well. He hid himself, in one of the floo network entrances and disapparated. He appeared in front of the bathroom's entrance, and leaned against the wall of the underground corridor. Waiting for Philip just happen to pass by.

Moody quickly moved away, closing the door. When Young moved out, Alastor casted a taboo on him. As his wand was moved slowly. No one would be able to say Jericho Young without Alastor being on top of them. If this Malfoy thought the Ministy was filled with fools. He was wrong.
