In June 1997 I left Hogwarts for the last time for a nervous summer awaiting my NEWT results. After the first few days pacing I decided it was no good and I had to do something. I’d been approached by a Quidditch scout during my time at Hogwarts but during my exams I had more than enough to worry about. Now I’d finished my exams however I was free to play whenever so I contacted him again and tried out to be a chaser. This lasted for all of one year. The games themselves were great as, thanks to Oliver, we’d always taken house games as seriously as if we were playing for our lives, but the training between seasons was totally different. There was no Alicia or Angelina to gossip with, no Weasley twins to make us laugh, and no Oliver fuming about paying attention or new strategies he’d devised. Quidditch was very much a hobby for me, and I didn’t want to ruin that by taking it too seriously as a profession. I was no longer trying to kill time until my NEWTS arrived.

Charms: O
Ancient Runes: EE
Arithmancy: EE

So I quit.

However, bills must still be paid and I had no intention of living with my parents for the rest of my life. I applied for a job in the Magical Menagerie in Diagon Alley, and with a NEWT in Care of Magical Creatures I didn’t have much trouble getting it. Although an assistant sales-woman in a pet shop, even a magical pet shop, hardly seems a challenge, especially after so many months in St Mungo's...if life can be taken away so easily...I want to make the most of it while I can.

So now I'm a cursebreaker, trained under the watchful eye and expert guidance of Bill Weasley, working as a rune seeker for a private collector.
