right where i should be.
|There was something to be said about the fact that Ares decided to just waltz onto the grounds of a school that he'd never attended. It was either really gutsy or really idiotic, and quite honestly he didn't care which it was. Today he was a man on a mission. |
At first Ares hadn't thought much about not seeing his sister for a few days. She was one that valued her space, so he just shrugged it off as Athena being Athena. But since she'd gotten back from healing from the duel the young woman hadn't missed a single practice. Ares knew she valued Quidditch as much as he did and wouldn't willingly jeopardize her position because she was having a bad day. Then the Prophet article dropped. He wasn't sure how accurate it was, since Athena did have a tendency to disappear sometimes, but at the same time he couldn't help the nagging in the back of his mind.
He'd gone to Petra first but had gotten nothing out of the visit but a name. It appeared that not even Athena's housemate knew where to find her, and Ares found that exceptionally weird. He'd followed the name he'd gotten from her to Hogwarts. It was strange, really, to be standing at the gate to the school his siblings had shared at some point, the school that his fiance attended. It wasn't something he'd ever thought would happen, because he'd never really had a good reason. It wasn't like he knew any staff to be visiting.
Getting inside was easy enough which was both discomforting and satisfying. He hadn't really wanted to forcefully break in. That might make his intentions look a bit sketchy. As it was, he'd gotten onto the grounds at least. That was one thing to check off his to-do list. Now he just had to find a person he'd never met in a place he'd never been. Easy enough.
Having looked into the name Petra had given him, Ares knew who to look for from a picture he'd come across. The headline that had accompanied the picture wasn't the most encouraging, but that didnt really matter now. To his right, Ares could make out the goals of a Quidditch pitch. If he taught flying that was where he'd be spending most of his time, so he turned and headed across the lawns to the stadium. Maybe there'd be some sort of indication where to go from that.
Making sure there weren't any students around since he stuck out like a sore thumb, Ares ducked into the more structured area that housed changing rooms and things like that. Maybe he'd find some sort of office if he looked around long enough. He didn't expect it to be a permanent one, since no one really wanted an office outside, but somewhere to keep things for classes that was convenient.
Rounding a bend he saw a door set off from the rest of them. That seemed promising, especially consdering the labeling on the door as he drew closer. Reading over the plaque fastened to the wood, he realized that he'd actually found what he was looking for. Perfect. There was nothing on the metal board that mentioned knocking, so Ares took that as a reason to just open the door without doing so. Besides, if there happened to be no one inside he'd have knocked for nothing. If there was actually someone inside... he'd deal with that once he found out.
The office was a tidy little room, perfect for quick lesson storage or small amounts of work away from the bustle of the main castle. And even better, there was someone sitting at the desk inside of it matching the picture Ares had found. This had been all too easy. He just hoped that it was worth it and he gained some insight to where his sister might have disappeared to.
Ares if you could not pls and thanks
