"What are you doing?" Charlie asked coming into the bedroom to find Anora under the bed, with her legs sticking out.

He suddenly heard a loud bang and then a groan.

"Ow."

Anora shuffled herself from out under the bed and rubbed her head.

"Dragon Bollocks, that hurt!" she hissed.

"Forever the classiest lady I know." Charlie chuckled sitting on the bed. "What were you doing under there?"

Anora held up a cat toy with a sheepish grin. "Iggy kept howling for it...little bugger as if he isn't capable of getting it himself."

"You should have let him get it himself then."

"Yeah well...shush."

"Don't you shush me."

"I'll shush you whenever I please, Weasley. Shush! Shush! Shu-"

"That's it!" Charlie arose to his feet but Anora quickly jumped up and ran out of the room.

"Yeah, that's what I thought!" he called after her. "You better run!"

Anora popped her head back into the doorway. "Shush. You're about as intimidating as a kitten."

"Am not! You take that back!"

"Make me, Charles."

Charlie glared at her playfully, but suddenly, his expression softened.

"Don't you want to hear the good news?"

"Good news?" she repeated.

"Yes, the good news."

"What's the good news?"

"You have to come over here and sit next to me to hear it."

"Yeah right, I-"

"It involves Roscoe and Norberta."

"Why can't you just tell me right here? I can obviously hear you."

He didn't answer as he patted the part of the bed beside him.

"Before I walk over there, let's call it a truce?"

"Okay." he smiled crossing his fingers behind his back.

Anora wandered over to him and sat down.

"So what's the good news?"

She was suddenly tackled back onto the bed.

"The good news is the file motioned against them was dismissed. They are free to go as well as Sultan."

"Really?" she asked excitedly. "They're all cleared?"

"Yes!" he said with a nod. "But-"

Anora groaned. "Why is there always a but? Why can't there just be good news and let it be done with that! Why?!"

"Anora!" he gave her a slight shake to stop her ranting.

"What?"

"Relax, it's not bad well...it's just they are not to have anymore incidents reported, because if they do, it'll cause a problem for them."

"Well fine, maybe if they did their jobs and caught poachers more often-"

"Anora..."

"I'm just saying." she said crossing her arms over her chest. "Everyone keeps telling us how to do our jobs but it's really those bastards that need to get a grip on their shi-"

Charlie placed a pillow over her face to drown out her foul words.

Finally, she went quiet.

"Are you done?" He asked lifting the pillow up.

"Are you done?!" she countered pushing him back and straddling him.

He snorted at her before she climbed off of him and left the room.

"Where are you even going?" he called as he heard her slipping on her boots in the kitchen.

"I'm going to go tell Roscoe and Norbs the good news."

"You could just wait until tomorrow!"

"No, I can't!" she sang back.


With the sanctuary no longer taking new workers in unless a position desperately needed filling, everything returned to normal. Magnus had shown off his true badass nature leaving all the workers much more confident in the sanctuary head.

The dragons were calm, normally tending to their routine schedules, and Anora and Charlie were excited to welcome the new hatchlings as some of the dragon eggs were beginning to hatch.

While Charlie took down the serious information pertaining to the weight, breed and sex of the dragons, Anora was too preoccupied with naming the newbies.

"Focus!" Charlie said tapping his quill against her face causing her to sneeze violently.

"Gesundheit!"

The two turned around to see Magnus standing behind them observing the newly hatched dragons in the nesting grounds.

"Thanks," Anora said with a sniff, before poking Charlie hard in the arm.

"May I have a word with you two?"

"Sure thing, Magnus." Charlie said as he rubbed his arm.

Magnus sat in between the two causing Anora and Charlie to snicker at the bizarre man's actions.

"I have a request from the Ministry-"

Anora let out a loud groan and fell back into the grass.

"Now, now, let me finish. I think you two might actually enjoy this request." he said. "It involves your old school."

"Hogwarts?" the two said together.

"Yes. They were honored to host the Triwizard Tournment this year and for the first challenge, there was a specific request."

"That involves us because?" Charlie asked confused.

"They want to use dragons."
