A New York bar. Upscale. Young and intense in that way that means everyone was holding a martini and scanning the room for people more important than they are. The noise was deafening, but that was the way that he often found it. It's not drinks, it's a competition. And the winner was him. He was sat way in the back using the No-Maj as cover. Behind a round large mahogany table, he stared in to the jungle that was the bar area. He acts like a winner. But hates the fact that people assume that because he is pretty, he is not smart. Because he was. Smart. And stylish but weary. People tend to underestimate him.

He didn’t mind meeting department heads in the cover of some shady bar on 49th Street. It was okay, but the island was so jammed it wouldn’t be repeated and would move to another bar in another street for the next department head. After all, right now it wasn’t smart for wizards and witches to be seen to regularly in the same place, so the meetings had to be sporadic and random in their occurrence.

His waiting had the patience of a hunter, the quiet stillness of a man in control of his body and his emotions. Unusual for a New Yorker.

Edward liked to meet the heads of department in a bar. It meant that he could see another side to them completely. After all everyone put a façade up for their work lives. He watched silently waiting for tonight’s meeting head.

Henrietta had never liked these sporadic meetings. She had to attend and pretend like she fought this cause like the rest of them did, like she truly did her job like it should be done. An actress within the war.

As she stepped inside the busy upscale bar, her fingers twitched. This was exactly the kinda place she didn't enjoy. Those upscale and thinking they were better than her. A few eyes glanced over to her, focusing in upon the scars that traced out of her dress. She ignored- as ever.

Eyes scanned the place before the landed on Hudson, a tuck of hair behind her ears before she walked over. She hoped to get this over with quickly.

Soon enough she slid into the booth with him, giving him a small look, a small greeting, glancing up to the passing waiter and ordering a drink.

This wasn't work- the same rules didn't quiet apply.

Looking back to Hudson she spoke: "Didn't figure you'd choose somewhere so.... busy." Busy and uptight. Perhaps that fit MACUSA perfectly, however.

Edward stared at the Director of the Werewolf Registry contemptuously yet direct. He paused again before sipping his drink, after all it had grown lonely in the wait. “Busy is often subjective… Henrietta…” They had been in the same year at school so despite not speaking to each to her much and her not speaking to him. He remembered her and could probably guess that the feeling was mutual. “No-Maj make the perfect cover to elude their extreme factions…trust me…” He made calculation after for calculation to make sure that everything was perfect. Lobbying was about foresight after all.

The surroundings were thought out right down to the drink in front of him that was misted slightly to give it the appearance of a sprit as opposed to the water that it actually was. It mattered not that he was being questioned. This was his opportunity to remind the ‘troops’ that they were in the middle of a war. Despite the petty squabbles about resources between the three major parties regardless the government had to continue and these meetings were a part of that.

“Talk to me about the Registry. Are the monitors on all those registered still live?” His face had shifted to business-mode. The Registry was not his favourite topic, but it was a necessary one at this point in time. Of course, there were other topics available, for example Henrietta Kane’s file noted severe scaring plus other things. But even though he knew of them, they weren’t necessary. Through reports that landed on his desk he knew the creatures were feeling very disaffected at this point. But they weren’t necessarily alone. The whole American Wizarding population was feeling let down. They had been attacked. They had yet to respond.

As Edward spoke, her eyes remained focusing forward, watching those within the club as their bodies moved against each other. As he spoke, of course she heard what he had said, giving a small nod. Not that she necessarily agreed. But with him it was certainly easier to just nod along. She wasn't here to argue.

As expected, the question of the registry came up. It was her job after all. It was the reason why she was here. The only reason.

"The monitors are still live." She replied, glancing back to him eventually, the music around them pulsing. That was all he had asked, but she knew he would require more. Simply answering one question would not finish this meeting.

And so she continued...

"There is one particular werewolf who was causing some disturbances but i have sent a team out to go take care of it."

A small glance up as the waiter she had previously motioned to came over, placing down a list coloured pink cocktail in front of her, taking a small sip, she looked back to Hudson. They weren't at work, he truly would have no reason to bust her for drinking.

Teddy didn’t look up or flinch as the pink concoction made its smooth landing onto their table, after all it was clear that ‘office’ rules wouldn’t apply. Though the noise that was now becoming louder was getting to be more annoying than simply a ‘cover’. “Glad to hear, no uprisings or mass rebellions I assume?” His face remained deadpan, business-like, ‘beige’.

After all this was his reputation, and he had to live up to it. The studious, boring child of a politician, who had obviously got the job with the emergency president thanks to said politician’s connections. A story that was partly true: After all someone had made sure he got the job. But he got them half way.

“I was wondering your thoughts on the relocation of the MACUSA Headquarters, the President is considering a number of options.” Lie. “She is seeking an opinion from the department heads.” He however had a good reason for asking: To prepare for after Ronan.

If there was a way to provide stability, he wanted to find it after all stability was a good way to ensure loyalty. Or at least that was the plan. Teddy stopped himself from continuing more, leaving just enough information in the open to keep it interesting. He couldn’t remember who told him that Henrietta was a loyalist, but that was what he had on a file in his office.

As the pink concoction sat before them, she brought it to her lips, letting the liquid slide down her throat gently, the alcohol sitting nicely within her mind. Not that it would sit for long. Soon enough she could hear Edward talking, and she glanced to the side at him.

A small shake of the head at his question. Not that it was that odd of question. Not really. With a war like this that surrounded them, perhaps you would expect uprisings and rebellions. But within the werewolf department, there were none. None that would be a problem, at least.

Silence between them for a short moment, the loud music pulsing around. This truly was an odd place for them to meet.

Soon enough conversation continued, and this time she looked more interested rather than dis-interested. The relocation of the MACUSA headquarters? It hardly seemed a matter connected to her but......

"I think the relocation of it truly doesn't matter." Whilst Henri was officially a loyalist, politics and matters of state wasn't her subject of expertise.

"I think regardless of where the headquarters are, the war will continue, rebellions will rise... but in turn, those here will keep fighting. Keeping work towards a peace." Another sip of her drink, looking at him properly. Had that been the response he ha wanted? She doubted it.

What happens when plans don’t go as you planned?

Edward lent back as Henrietta spoke. “I guess you are correct, after all everyone has a job to do and a war to fight and that doesn’t change regardless of where the headquarters are located.” He took a sip of his drink, trying not to look like he was gripping it too tightly. It hadn’t been the response he wanted, but it seemed that was all that his former classmate was offering at this point. After all she had no reason to trust him, at least in Edward’s mind.

Two No-Maj had begun locking fists to the part of the bar closest to them. He sipped his drink and watched them out of the corner of his eye. As they shuffled their feet in a weird violent dance that was a cross between drunkenness and a fight, they ended up far too close for Edward’s liking. He considered the position before turning towards Henrietta. “Incoming…” With that one of the No-Maj had been thrust through the wooden table that had been standing between where the wizarding pair had been sat. “Time to go I think Miss Kane…” It hadn’t been the meeting he wanted, though Edward was beginning to wonder what he actually wanted to get out of these meetings with the Heads of Service. “Until next time… unless you’d like to continue forgetting work and go somewhere else? You pick?” He didn’t normally let someone do the planning. Or even make a decision. But he guessed… why not they weren’t at work…and after all she had the choice to go home and not continue any further.
