Work was finally done for the day. Harper didn’t have that feeling about her career as a metal charmer all that often, but today was one of those special ones. There had been recent breakthroughs, which honestly weren’t all that amazing, but they had captivated her coworkers enough to start working longer hours and draining resources left and right. She was there to tinker and have fun with muggle stuff. Charming radios to make them work similarly to walkie-talkies wasn’t exactly anything ingenious, nor practical in this day and age. But it never took a lot to impress and woo over witches and wizards. While all of them were heavily invested on doing that, she had spent her time catching up on all of their regular missed work – like checking up on snitches to see if their charms were still solid before sending them to the Quidditch committee where they would be distributed to teams. Those were slightly more important than the other things they charmed, and she felt like it went to a good cause. Hopefully that wasn’t too selfish since she enjoyed watching the sport be played…
Returning home, Harper parked her motorcycle in the driveway and slid off of it, her legs feeling like jelly. This always seemed to happen after sitting at her desk all day. It was like all of her muscles went into a comatose state, only to decide to revive themselves the second she tried to use them to walk. Stretching a little as she walked inside the house, Harper dropped her helmet on top of the shoe rack next to the door and tossed her jacket over her normal hook. From the silence inside the house, she assumed no one else was home yet. She was pretty sure her parents were both currently in Romania playing with the dragons. If work didn’t require her to be there every day, she would have joined them in a heartbeat. Exhausted, Harper moved towards the couch and fell face first down onto it. There was little resistance from the cushions, and she sank into them, feeling the stress of the work day starting to drift away.
