Outside of the the phone booth that would take Kia to the Ministry to begin her day, she stood with her little family; her wife, Selina, Selina's kindly mother, Edwina, and Kia and Selina's adopted four year old daughter, Persephone, Perse for short, Perse gave Kia the same sad look she always gave her before Kia went to work. It warmed Kia's heart in a way. Perse had been with the couple for a year now, and had accepted both as her parents, loving them as dearly as they loved her.
"Do you really have to go to work, Mum?" asked Perse. "We were having so much fun making breakfast this morning."
"I know, but we'll have fun tonight too, my love," said Kia, her slight Brazilian accent showing. "We'll play some games after dinner, all three of us. You be good for your Nan though. Perhaps she'll take you to Diagon Alley for ice cream." Edwina nodded at that, being the ever adoring grandmother. Kia knelt down, hugged her daughter, and kissed her cheek. "Love you, Perse."
"Love you too, Mum," said Perse. Kia then rose and hugged and kissed her wife, and then hugged her mother-in-law, saying her farewells to them. From there, she stepped into the phone booth and down to the Ministry she went.
Once she arrived, she checked in and made her way to one of the break rooms to make herself a cup of coffee as there were still a good twenty minutes before she had to report in at the department. Despite all her years in England, she had never been much a tea person. Coffee, on the other hands, was marvelous. As she added milk and sugar, she heard someone else enter the room. She gave the person a friendly, but professional smile and nod.
"Good morning," she said. "Looking forward to the day ahead?"
