The waiting seems eternity
The day will dawn of sanity

It was not glamorous work. Not that Addy had expected anything else, but she really hadn’t known what to expect. Addy had opted to start her internship as soon as possible over the summer. The only other option had been to stay at home with her parents, but Claire and Grey didn’t live there anymore, so it was just her. Having that much extra time only let her mind wander into the new things in her life that now worried her. Cheese had moved to London and begun his work at the Prophet while Brigh was probably off in Egypt by now beginning her training as a Cursebreaker. Addy had asked Claire if she knew any Cursebreakers and hopefully helped Brigh get assigned with a trainer who knew what they were doing.
All of that seemed so exciting, and Addy had gotten to work on a phone the previous week, and it had felt so natural. Much like when she had disassembled her own phone just to see what was inside. Today, however, was a slow day. Well, it was slow for Addy. The department was small, and a lot of grunt work was pushed to the interns while the rest of the employees handled requests and interfaced with the IT department. Addy still hadn’t talked to IT, and she had about a million questions for them. She blinked a few times as the numbers written on the old parchment began to blur together. Each week, there was a portion of time where they helped IT and Human Resources with some backlog work. Graduates with a knack for the new technology greatly increased the speed at which old documentation was digitized.
Addy had spent about an hour that first day of data entry (about a few weeks into her internship) trying to devise a charm or combination of charms to speed up the process. Much like how one might charm several items in a home to help clean quickly. But the issue was reading and interpreting the words on the parchment and getting it into the computer. One of the other interns, a muggle-born who had been in Hufflepuff, explained that this is how Muggles did similar work. Mentally, Addy made a mental note to invent a charm or some kind of spell at some point—surely it was worth an Order of Merlin to not sit here and read a few words and press the keys on the keyboard as she searched for the letters. Unfortunately, even with her knack for such gadgets, typing appeared the be the new enemy of Wizarding Society. She let out a sigh as she rolled up this parchment and walked back into the main offices to grab a few more. She walked toward Harper’s desk, seeing that Scorpius had stepped away. ”Hey Harper—do you know where Scorpius put the rest of the scrolls?”
