Part Two: Dressing Jade
When Draco left, Jade couldn't sleep at all. She stood up, afraid to go to sleep and afraid for the Jester to come back. Jade left to the Ministry the next morning. She walked into the Aurseize Office and asked Parvati if Harry came in.
"Not yet. He should be here soon; I've got some high profile murderers he'd be interested in." Parvati said. Jade sat down and Lavender came walking in wearing a bright red skirt and a golden shimmery top.
"Jade you look awful!" Lavender said as Jade nodded.
"No, I meant that you look tired. You either stood up all night or Malfoy gave you the worst sex of your life." Lavender said sitting next to Jade.
"No, I was just up all night." Jade said. Lavender nodded and took Jade's hands.
"It happens. When you see a disgusting man getting a hard on in front of you, there are many sleepless nights." Lavender said.
"Explains why I threw up a little in my mouth every time I thought about it." Parvati said. Ron opened the door to his office and walked out.
"You look like shit…where's Hagrid?" Ron asked. Jade looked up.
"You look like a dick, where are your panties?" Jade asked.
"Aunt Muriel copycat." Ron said.
"Drag Queen carbon copy." Jade said.
"Hey!" Ron said pointing a finger at Jade. "That happened only one time!" Ron said.
Lavender, Parvati and Jade burst into laughter, laughing at Ron who turned around, went into his room and locked the door. The door opened again.
"If you don't find Hagrid within a week, I'll bring your worst enemy to get him for me." Ron said. "As if I already haven't made enough." Jade said.
"Oh my God, how's my hair? How are my boobs? Is my lipstick okay? Greek God at 12:00." Lavender mumbled loud enough for Parvati to hear who scrambled to fix her makeup.
Jade turned her head to see Harry walk in. He looked casual and dangerous, not the bulky and beefed up men you would see who had nothing better to do but pump steroids in themselves. Harry was au natural. After that superhero stint with the centaurs in the Forbidden Forest, Jade was convinced that Harry had to possess powers that no one else held. He was perfectly calm in every situation and help himself mannerly; something that Jade couldn't even get a hold of in this lifetime.
"Heard something about you last night." Harry said to Jade, still looking over his files. Lavender and Parvati looked confused and Jade bit her lip.
"Actually…" Harry closed his file and held the door open. "Take a walk with me." He said. Jade got up and went out the door with Harry close by her.
"Do you remember what I told you about Shirley? About her seeing a jester?" Jade asked seeing Harry nod.
"He threw a burning torch through my window and there was a note on it." Jade said.
"What did it say?" Harry asked.
"It's the nursery rhyme; Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posies, ashes to ashes, I will burn you down." Jade said.
"Where's the note?" Harry asked.
"It's with Malfoy. He wanted to look into it but that's not his area of expertise. He deals with homicide and this maniac is a psycho arsonist from hell." Jade said.
"How are you feeling?" he asked.
"I'm great!" Jade said.
"I bet you are." Harry said.
"I'm not scared." Jade said.
"Didn't say you were love." Jade blinked at him.
"I'm going on an apprehension tomorrow and I need some help." He said. Jade gaped at him.
"You need help? But I thought you worked solo." Jade said seeing him take a step towards her.
"Aren't we working on Hagrid's case together?" he asked.
"Well Hagrid's been a good friend of yours and you want to help him. It doesn't make a difference if I'm there or not." Jade said. Harry smiled slightly.
"You're right. Hagrid is my friend and no matter who works on this case, I'll still try to help him as much as I can…but it doesn't take away from our friendship." He said, spotting a piece of lint on her shoulder. He picked it out and dropped it to the side. Jade gulped and smiled at him.
"So this apprehension that I'm going to do today involves a 21 year old man and the only reason why I couldn't make an apprehension on him for the past couple of days was because I couldn't get him alone." He said. Jade knew what the rest of the plan was going to be.
"You want me to lure him out for you." Jade said seeing Harry nod once.
"He'll be in a club tomorrow and I need you to look…"
"Sexy. Yeah I know the drill." Jade said scratching her head.
"I'll pick you up tomorrow at 9. Don't disappoint me." He said walking away.
"Nope!" Jade said.
As soon as she saw him leave the Auror Department, Jade turned around and made a run for it into the Aurseize Office, not realizing that Draco had walked in on the very last lines of her and Harry's conversation.
Jade ran through the doors and grabbed Lavender's hand.
"You have to make me look like a whore!" Jade said. Lavender looked startled and Parvati shot up in her seat.
"You…what?" Lavender asked.
"I told you everyone hates this job!" Parvati said.
"No! I'm on the job; I just need to dress a little provocatively to catch someone. A slow grin crept up Lavender's face.
"You little witch! Her mind works like the devil! But don't worry; I have tons of dresses for you. Let's go." Lavender said, grabbing Jade's hand.
"Excuse you both! No one's going anywhere until I'm there. Ron!" Parvati called out in the machine.
"What?!" Ron squawked.
"I'm feeling sick! I need to go home!" Parvati said. The door opened and Ron burst through.
"You're not going anywhere!" he demanded. Parvati pouted and put a hand to her abdomen.
"But I have my period…and it feels like my uterus is going to fall out." Parvati said. Ron turned pale and winced.
"Go, just go." He said going back into his office. Parvati bounced on her heels and strutted out the door with a cheeky smile.
Jade stood in Lavender's bedroom that resembled the size of Jade's entire flat. Being the Head of the Elite Escort Service in London had incredible perks. Seeing Lavender's walk in closet gave Jade second thoughts about her current job.
"I want to come along with this one. You'll probably need some help knocking this pervert out." Parvati said, sifting through Lavender's dresses on one side as Lavender sifted through the others.
"That sounds fun! It'll be like a girls day out and-"Lavender went to say.
"Oh no, no, no. This isn't actually my apprehension." Jade said. Parvati and Lavender stopped, looking at Jade.
"Hold on one minute…I didn't give you a folder today. You brought in all of your assigned fugitives and the only one you have is Hagrid. You're not luring Hagrid out of a club are you? Because that's disturbing on all levels." Parvati said. Lavender shuddered.
"Fuck yeah that's disturbing! But then again, you can't use magical spells on giants, so I guess I could see your reasoning into seducing him, but why would Hagrid-"
"For fuck's sake, it's not Hagrid! It's Harry's apprehension and he asked me to help take him out." Jade said.
Lavender and Parvati exchanged looks and tore through the clothes.
"What?! What?!" Jade asked. Lavender and Parvati ran out and laid out dresses on the bed, running towards Jade and comparing colors to her skin tone.
"Harry that clever son of a gun. He's Harry Potter, he can pick out the devil from hell blindfolded with his hands tied to his back. Do you honestly think he would need help to take out a punk bitch?" Lavender asked. Jade was speechless. She didn't know what to say.
"But…he told me the kid's been surrounded by people-" Jade stopped as Parvati and Lavender chuckled.
"Jade…so naïve, so cute." Parvati said.
"You're so fucking lucky. But if you get to…you know, you'll be the first to tell me right?" Lavender asked.
"Ew! Harry? Could you get any crazier? Why would I-"
"I have the perfect dress!" Lavender said.
Jade stood in front of the mirror in her apartment, trying hard not to bite her lip. It was a one shoulder emerald green dress with matching spike heels. Lavender and Parvati did an amazing job with hair and makeup but Jade kept messing things up from getting so nervous. What if something went wrong tonight? It had been a while since she dressed up this much for someone but this was for Harry's apprehension.
'Not Harry.' Jade thought.
The doorbell rang and Jade grabbed her cloak, draping it around her. She opened the door to see Harry standing there in his apprehension clothes.
"Ready?" he asked, looking her over.
"Yeah, I'm-" Jade stopped to see Harry remove her cloak and clip something on her dress between her breasts.
"Fred and George gave me a listening device. I'll be waiting outside and if anything happens, I'll be able to hear what's going on." He said. Jade nodded.
"I asked for sexy, not heart stopping. It'll be a pain in the arse to fill out all those papers for a dead man." Harry said taking a step back. Jade flushed and wondered if Harry would break her door down and shoot her in the head if she refused to go.
"Let's just get this over with." Jade said closing her door and locking it. When they were outside, Harry dangled his keys at Jade.
"We're muggles tonight." Harry said.
"You drive muggle cars too? Am I the only person who never rides these things?" Jade asked seeing Harry smirk.
"You should think about it…or maybe not…I heard women were bad drivers." He said opening her door for her.
"That's sexist." Jade said.
"You either like me or you don't. Buckle up." He said. He started his engine and just like Draco's car, this engine purred quietly. Jade melted in her seat, looking around the London streets at night. Harry pulled into an empty lot and he stopped the car.
"Ready?" he asked seeing Jade nod.
