British Import IIDamien didn't like this. Being moved here after three years hunting Death Eaters in the field? It was Merlin-damned frustrating. To make matters worse it was apparently nothing more than glorified bodyguard duty. 'Glad to know you appreciate my work, Ladek.' He thought grimly.
Walking into Ladek's office had been unpleasant. Ladek was a stocky man, famous for fighting off a force of Death Eaters twice the size of his unit right on Chicago's doorstep during the first war against The Dark Lord. His reward had been a desk job, and a few scar stories. His weathered features were set in a near-permanent state of non-expression. When Damien walked into his office, he had simply nodded to acknowledge his presence. Damien's expression spoke volumes about his displeasure in his new assignment.
"Bodyguard duty? For a HOGWARTS student?" He had asked incredulously.
"I felt you'd be well suited for the job, Lachance." Ladek said evenly. "If you'll lis-"

Harry Potter- British ImportGinny felt uncomfortable, to say the least. This muggle city - Las Vegas? It was so completely alien to her. She felt completely out of her element, this was far removed from even London, and that had been a bit odd to get used to in and of itself.

Not that she'd taken a plane, of course. If not for a few subtle tricks, people may have noticed a group of people leaving the ladies room that hadn't gone inside to begin with. She sighed and looked up at her companions.
Her father tried to smile encouragingly. "Well Ginny, dear, it's not like you'll have to spend much TIME here at all," He said, patting her on the shoulder, "I'm sure they have a Hogsmeade of their own at the academy."
Her mother remained silent, staring out the window, as flabbergasted as Ginny. Arthur elbowed her lightly. S
Demon Isle: Chapter 3Kiba was the first one to awaken, finding himself lying on top of Akamaru. He pushed himself to his feet. Akamarus body rose and fell with his breaths. Good, Kiba thought, that means hes alive. He started to check himself. His body felt relatively undamaged. A few scrapes and bruises seemed to be the extent of the injuries he sustained. He must not have fallen very far. He looked around and noticed he was in some kind of a forest clearing.
Next he sniffed the air. He smelled Ramen? He looked to his left and saw a sizable chunk of the overhang from the noodle stand was lying broken on the ground. Under it was
Hinata-chan! He exclaimed as he rushed over to her. He threw pieces of wood and canopy aside as he struggled to unbury Her. Hinata was in worse condition than Kiba. The wood falling on her had caused a large bruise to form on her arm. Kiba held her in his arms, cradling her head. Hinata-chan, wake up! He said. She moaned and her eyes
