Posted on Sunday, 12th of August, 2012 @ 7:46pm by Seventh Year Prefect (G) Jennifer Collins & Ministry Employee Mordred Borgia & Fourth Year (G) Satele Dragomir & Seventh Year Prefect (G) Evan Grant & Seventh Year Prefect (S) Reginald Price & Professor Nicholi Nostradamus

Mission: New Semester
Location: Great Hall
Timeline: Dinner


There were two weeks left in the school year and final exams were underway. Most of the students were studying and thinking of the summer ahead.

The Great Hall was abuzz with students and teachers talking and laughing, discussing the days events and enjoying the end of another long day.

The doors of the Great Hall burst open and a think hawk-faced man stood there for several moments, scanning the room. "Nicholi Nostradamus?" His voice was a rich baritone and rang through the now-silent hall.

When the professor looked up, he walked to the front table. 'My name is Mordred Borgia, Ministry of Magic. He pulled out a scroll and began to read it. "You have been accused of negligence, endangering the welfare of the students at this school, failure to enforce proper discipline and locking yourself in your office and allowing your subordinates to take over the care and running of this school. What do you say to these charges?"

"Say, do I have something to say?" Nicholi said Absentmindedly, "But of course, I Say Poppycock! You sir are a twit If you wish to stand here in my school and spout of your filth I would suggest you present individual evidence and charges and we will convene the school governors, If not I shall bid you good day sir."

"The governors SENT me, sir. After reviewing the evidence of your crimes I am here to inform you that you have been removed as Headmaster until you either show just cause why you should retain your position or you are sent to Azkaban." He rolled up the scroll and dropped it in front of Nostradamus. "A tribunal will commence in three days' time, at which point this matter will be decided. One way or the other." He tipped his hat to the Headmaster and turned and walked out the door.

Satele, who was sitting at the Gryffindor table with Bre and Cassandra, looked after the ministry man as he walked out. "have either of you heard about these 'charges' against the headmaster?" she asked turning back to the table

"I haven't heard anything." Cassandra answered, "I wonder who he made angry." She added.

"It would have had to have been someone high up in the ministry" Bre said, turning back to the table, "who else would be able to dismiss the headmaster?"

"Not without a reason," Jennifer whispered, overhearing their conversation. "It sounds like there's going to be an investigation." She wondered what had been said to the ministry to warrant such action. And if it had anything to do with Reg's family. They were still mad at him for being in a relationship with her.

Reginald stood there by Jennifer. He overheard everything she did, but just stood there listening to it. He wondered if this had anything to do with him and his family. Part of him thought it did, but he didn't think his father would go this far to prove a point.

Jen looked up at Reg, sure he was thinking the same thing she was. "How about a walk?" she suggested. It might be a good idea to get away from the others for a bit. She took his hand and the two walked out of the Great Hall.

Evan and Nathan gave each other puzzled looks. "He must of done some thing, dodgy."

The headmaster got up from the head table and stormed from the room. His voice magically amplified. "Teachers to the staff room, please."
