The Knight bus was not generally Fender's preferred method of travel. But he and Lex had required an untraceable mode of transportation for their honeymoon so as to ensure it was not interrupted by irate, blustering 6' 7" siblings (...hers). Now they were on their way back to reality and he couldn't particularly say he was pleased about that. The island had been paradise. Complete and utter paradise. And with his amazing new wife by his side, he hadn't felt any need to quickly return to the stress of everyday life. Sadly, one couldn't stay in a dream forever. And so now they were here, sitting side by side on the bed the Knight Bus boasted...holding onto the bed posts with white knuckles as their ride jerked and shuddered through its route. Free hand in hers, he gave hers a squeeze. "You think Sam cracked?"

Lex had been lost in shimmering daydreams centered around lush island canopies and late night swims in tepid pools of crystal clear water. It was the only way to survive the horror that was riding the Knight Bus just after midnight. Not that Fender's voice wasn't welcome, but it shattered the wakeful dream the moment his graveled tone posed a question. One, she had to briefly scoff at.

"Oh, come on... it's Sam. Of course, he buckled."

Shaking her head of blonde curls at that ridiculous inquiry, she glanced up at her... husband... Merlin... and offered him a simple, though still cheeky, grin. He was hers. That was... she still couldn't wrap her head around it.

"Brad, I can handle. The reports in the Prophets that we've missed...?

Grimacing, she tightened her grip on the bedpost when the bus made a daring veer to the left, having to use Fender's lanky frame for support as they careened around another corner. This driver was bloody mental. Who was in charge of hiring them, again? Surely not her department...

Fender grinned, looking over at the beach-blond blue-eyed beauty by his side. How the hell had he managed to land her??? It made absolutely no sense. And yet, she was here all the same. Her next comment put a damper on those cheery thoughts, though. He grimaced, bracing against the Knight Bus's constant jostling. Those articles....he hadn't allowed himself to look at the Prophet all honeymoon. So when he finally looked through the pile of papers he'd missed....Merlin.

His voice was low when he replied. "I think it's fair to say we'll be walking into a mess when we get back, babe. We'll pay respects to the Melots as soon as possible."

Nodding solemnly, she'd only just allowed herself a small sigh of remorse for not having visited the children yet, when the bus came to an abrupt, screeching halt. Finding herself launched from the bed and sprawled across the floor at an awkward angle, she started righting herself again with two palms flat on the floor when she felt the frigid chill. Oh, no... He'd driven right by the Bainbridge breeding grounds, hadn't he.

Now, it was no secret the the Dementors were still very much under Ministry control in their guard over Azkaban, but that didn't mean they didn't breed other locations. Locations that bred malcontent and depression in droves. Bainbridge happened to be just one of those towns, and its forest was often the winter time nest of the generations of Dementors to come. No doubt they were being round up by Tristen's department and relocated, but that didn't mean a stray couldn't have been lost amongst the mist.

"Fender, wand!"

Having lost hold of it on the bed just before she was thrown, she scrambled to get back to her feet and her magical means of protection. Not that she didn't think Fender could handle a rogue Dementor, but well... the chill was a little too unsettling for it to be just one...

He'd tried to keep her close, really he had. If the infernal Knight Bus wasn't such a ridiculously chaotic ride, he would have managed it. But such was not the case. Fender had managed to stay on the bed so as to not crush his new wife, but as he righted himself to lend her a hand, the air suddenly lost all traces of warmth. Even before she'd shouted for it, he was diving for their wands. Deftly he tossed hers over, dark eyes focused on the area around them. WHY WERE THEY STOPPED HERE?? This was the worst place to stop! "Collect the other passengers....I'll check on the driver."

On task, he paused in his mission to quickly grab a kiss. After all....one never knew, right? It was messy and not at all like he preferred to kiss her. But it would have to do for now. Refocusing, he kept his wand out front and advanced toward the front of the bus. He couldn't lose focus. Not now. After one of the best weeks of his life, his patronus had better be the stuff of legends. He was five steps away from the petrified driver when he saw the dark hooded figure appear in the doorway of the bus and the cold intensified even more. Summoning up his best, happiest night of the last week (the first one), he bellowed the charm. "EXPECTO PATRONUM" A silvery stallion erupted out of the end of his wand and galloped right toward the dementor who backed away, seeming rather confused.

Cursing under his breath about not having an chocolate on him, he shook the driver. "Hans....snap out of it...we have to get this bus moving. Let's go..." The man quivered, looking up at him with watery blue eyes. His hands were shaking like aspen leaves. Right. "LEX! Do we have any chocolate??"

Fender Schwartzen-Billings

Having made her way to the second level of the bus with her wand held out in front of her, protectively, she turned to call back down to Fender about her lack of chocolate, when her words choked in her throat. Oh... this hadn't been a coincidence that they'd stopped here. Not even close. Light eyes darting back and forth between the various occupants of the second level, she noticed with a heavy heart, that they were all familiar. Scowling, abhorrent features, but familiar ones nonetheless.

The Mirowicz family.

She'd passed the final ruling on their grandfather, as frail as he was, to spend the rest of his years rotting away in Azkaban prison. He'd committed crimes against Muggles that were so horrifying, she'd barely had the stomach to utter them aloud as she passed her final ruling. Granted, it was the case that had landed her the position of Chief Mugwump, so she'd considered it a benchmark in her career. The man was a monster, she did the right thing. Though, his family clearly thought the opposite.

How they'd found out where she was going to be, was beyond her, but her best guess was a plant in the Ministry. Those weren't terribly uncommon, and she'd be conducting a full investigation the moment they got back, but for now? It was seven wands to one, and her arm trembled slightly in trepidation. If she called for Fender now, they'd know she wasn't alone, and then he'd be of no use to her. She'd be dead on the floor before she'd even gotten to the second syllable, with that many wands aimed at her chest.

"Let me guess... family reunion?"

She hadn't mean to be so cheeky, but it just sort've slipped out, right before her wand arm flicked into blinding action. She was no slouch in the defense department, no matter how petite her stature.

"BOMBARDA MAXIMA!"

The forceful spell causing the bus to tremble in its wake, the entire roof of the second floor started crumbling in before the curses went flying amongst several of the sprawled bodies. She was quick, but even down to five wands with the collapse of the ceiling, she was risking her life with each silent curse whipped their way.

Angel got on board the knight bus. She mostly just walked everywhere. She figured it would be the quickest way to get to where she needed to be. She held on tight as she was jerked around. She closed her eyes as she just wanted to get to where she needed to be safe and in one piece. She opened her eyes hoping the bus had stopped somewhere. She hoped that the bus would stop at the telephone to the entrance of the ministry of magic or Diagon alley. The bus was still moving much to her dismay. She just wanted the bus to stop soon so she could get off the bus.
