Claire couldn’t help but smile when she saw the young Auror; he seemed to be around her age, and he seemed to have been caught off guard for at least a split second as she rounded the corner, likely surprised by her appearance. To his credit, his surprise didn’t last long and was quickly replaced by a full body sweep of her, sizing her up as well as checking her out.
She couldn’t be offended; she was doing much the same to him, finding him rather attractive. It was always nice to see a new face around the office, and it was doubly nice when that face was nice to look at. Flirting wasn’t her job, however, and a smile and a once over was going to have to do. He spoke and she nodded, tying her hair up in a ponytail so that it would be out of her face. Catching him licking his lips, she quirked an eyebrow, not quite sure whether he was trying to flirt or whether he was legitimately a bit dried out. "Los Angeles can get visitors lost in an instant; luckily for you, you’ve got a seasoned professional."

It was a weird case, and she couldn’t place who or why. She wasn’t even sure about the what; getting to the location would explain a little more, but right now it seemed like an unsolved mystery. Their surviving witnesses had no idea what had happened, and trying to make them remember could drive them insane.
