Sirius examined the list of food and drink offered by the Ministry cafeteria with some interest. The names of the food didn't look like what was being offered, but Sirius was never really a picky eater. He liked to think it was because he was a dog a heart, but sometimes he wondered if it wasn't just another way of rejecting his upbringing.

"Mmm, swill," he murmured to himself. He didn't mean it; it was more of a mockery of his former pureblooded family than anything else. Besides, some swill was actually pretty good.

Sirius glanced at his watch. He had a meeting with the Transportation department that morning, and was waiting on international travel papers. He still had his passports from 'family' vacations and such, but with his disownment, he needed to change the personal information listed. His time in the Netherlands wasn't until the next month, but he wanted to make sure that everything was set up and done right. He listed James's house as his place of residence, but next summer he'd have to change it again, anyway.

The woman who had helped him said that it would take a few hours. Sirius knew that this really meant four or five. Lots of time to kill.

Augustus, having just recently emerged from a marathon run of five days working on a project in the DoM, wandered down to the cafeteria looking for a bit of refreshment and perhaps a young lady to speak to. Finding the cafeteria as dismally empty as it usually is, he marked himself down as disappointed, grabbed a bit of tea and a sandwich and was about to sit down when he noticed a remarkably young gentleman sitting on his lonesome looking quite impatient about something.

Deciding to show some interest in other people today, and to satisfy his curiosity, Augustus made his way over to the boy's table. "Aren't you a tad bit young to work for the Ministry?" He asked, not used to seeing anyone but employees haunt the cafeteria as most people had other options.

"I'm a prodigy," Sirius said casually, looking up at the random man. "Normally I stay in my office instead of mingling with the people." He smiled friendly-like and nodded towards the food that the other man was carrying. "It any good?"

"A prodigy of the smartass kind, I see." He said, surveying the boy and looked down at his food. "It's edible. And it's not moving as much as it usually is. What's your name?"

"I see you've met my people, then. I'm Sirius," the young man allowed, liking the notion of edible food. "And you?"

"Yes, I've had plenty of experience with your people." Augustus said, resisting the urge to tack on "young man" as that just made him feel old. "My name's Rookwood. Augustus Rookwood. What brings you here, Sirius?"

"I'm travelling out of the country," Sirius said, leaning back in his chair and linking his hands behind his head. "Getting papers and whatnot. What do you do here?"

"Out of the country, eh? Where to? Don't your people usually head to France or Greece for the holiday? You are still at Hogwarts, aren't you?" He said, shifting his tray from one hand to the other. "I work in the Department of Mysteries. Can't tell you much more than that."

Sirius nodded. "Is it good work? Or am I not allowed to know that either?" He pulled his feet off of the chair across from him and offered the seat to Augustus. "I think you're misunderstanding me, there, Mr Rookwood. I'm a smartass, not a snob. And I'm travelling the UK, not France, thankyouverymuch."

"It's definitely interesting." He said, taking the pro-offered seat. "Thank you." He placed his tray down on the table. "Well, there's such a fine line sometimes. And traveling the UK, do you really need papers for that? If so I've been traveling illegally for years. Or do you have another destination planned that you don't want to say so you don't seem like one of those previously mentioned snobs?"

"Well...I don't papers to travel the UK," Sirius said reluctantly, deciding that this man was entirely too tricky for his liking. "But I'm going to Ireland and Holland, too."

"Holland? That's an interesting choice." He said innocently, taking a bite of food. "Have you been before?"

"No," Sirius said, tapping his hands on the table absently. "First time over there. It'll be good. You ever been?"

"No, afraid not. I've not done much traveling abroad. England and Ireland are the extent of it, I'm afraid. I'm sure it's a lovely country. My wife has probably been." He said, rolling his eyes a bit. "Have you graduated from school yet? Interested in the job with the Ministry?" He said, chuckling a bit.

"No, and no," Sirius said, adding a slight politeness. "But thanks anyway. The Ministry isn't a place for someone like me. I'd snooze more than anything, I think."

Augustus laughed and shrugged. "Hey, thought I would try. We get bonuses for recruits, you know. You go to Hogwarts then, right? How is the old place? I haven't been back to see it since I've graduated. I've been quite busy."
