Four and a half hours later.
Jerry returned to the room after completing his meditation session with the two Portkeys he had acquired from the French underground exchange.
In accordance with the agreement, he will board S.H.I.E.L.D.’s aircraft this morning and fly to New Mexico. He might spend a few days there, but back home, he still has to go to school and return home to cook as usual.
He needs a way to go back and forth between New York and New Mexico instantly without causing trouble. Because of this, as soon as he arrived in France, he went straight to the black market to seek a Portkey.
Considering how easily he can switch back and forth between New York and New Mexico thanks to the Portkey.
Jerry started to cast the Transfiguration Charm while placing a glove on the bed’s head. He has significantly increased in height over the past six months in the “Harry Potter” universe. Thus, he now needs to employ a spell to change it.
This is not a major issue because nobody around you will notice as long as you don’t suddenly get taller and instead gain a little height each day.
As usual, he saw Aisha and Belle board the school bus while preparing breakfast using magic. Since the last robot riot, Belle has moved in with them, and maybe in a few months, Haas and Belle may get married. Belle and Aisha ride the school bus to school together.
Jerry discovered an empty alley and rode a broomstick to school after watching the school bus leaves. He will undoubtedly remain in New Mexico throughout these days, so he will need to deal with the school a little bit.
In fact, it’s not a problem. As long as they don’t call Haas, the school staff can be dealt with with a minor Imperius Curse and a False Memory Charm. These magics won’t damage regular people because of his current magic level.
Jerry flew toward the S.H.I.E.L.D. carrier along the water on a broomstick as school was over. Although he now owns a Thestral, the broomstick is more practical and controllable for short flights.
“Good afternoon, Ms. Wizard.” A recognizable person flew over from the opposing side at high speed just as Jerry passed over the S.H.I.E.L.D. ship.
Taking a closer look, it was Tony Stark wearing an iron suit.
“Greetings, Mr. Stark.” Jerry waved hello before landing firmly on the deck and packing the broom into the case.
Tony arrived on the deck simultaneously, and the suit quickly changed into a carry-on suitcase.
“Is the poison fully gone from your body, Mr. Stark?” Jerry looked at Tony, who seemed cheerful, and his face had a tinge of astonishment.
The “palladium” element once more poisoned Tony during the previous robot riot due to the suit’s emergency use. Jerry didn’t give him another bottle of the antidote at that time.
“Of course, I have discovered substitutes for palladium, so I no longer have to be concerned about poisoning. Nonetheless, I still want to express my gratitude for the potion, which allowed me to create it.”
Tony took the suitcase in his hands. Indeed, Tony was able to treat the poisoning himself, even without his medicine.
Jerry smiled and nodded as he and Tony moved in the direction of Agent Hill. He then waved his hands and humbly remarked, “Thank you very much. My potion treats the symptoms but not the underlying problem. You’ll be alright without my potion.”
“You appear to be a little different than previously.” Tony said in surprise as he turned to face Jerry.
“What’s the difference?” Jerry checked the mask on his face to make sure it was on.
Tony paused to reflect before humorously stating, “It’s difficult to say, but you seem to be a lot more upbeat and optimistic. Since the last time I saw you, I’ll say I always thought you were a bigger bad person than Ivan.”
“Well….” Jerry knew at once that the continual use of the Unforgivable Curse during that period had certainly caused that feeling, and the unicorn’s power dispelled his bad influence.
Now, his condition is more as it was before he learned magic and traveled to the “Harry Potter” universe, which naturally makes individuals feel considerably different.
“Director Fury is already waiting for you in the office, Mr. Stark, and an agent will escort you there right away.”
Hill smiled at Jerry before handing Tony over to a young, stunning female agent who followed behind him, “If there are no further business matters. We can go now, Miss Wizard.”
“Alright, let’s go then.” Jerry paused as he overheard Hill calling him as Miss Wizard before responding with a smile.
Being constantly referred to as Miss Wizard was, to be completely honest, rather embarrassing for him. But even with the Illusion Spell at his disposal, impersonating Hermione to obstruct S.H.I.E.L.D.’s investigation into his true identity is something he must bear.
Jerry boarded the S.H.I.E.L.D. plane and took off towards New Mexico.
A S.H.I.E.L.D. supersonic plane travels from New Mexico to New York in about two hours, with a distance of nearly 3,000 kilometers. It might take him two or three days if he rides his own broomstick.
Yet, it is predicted that it will take no more than four or five hours if you are traveling on a Thestral, even though the speed is slower than a supersonic aircraft.
Jerry was finally transported to New Mexico by S.H.I.E.L.D.’s plane. It was a very desolate place, but at this time, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents had turned it into a temporary base, guarded by a huge number of skilled agents, as well as numerous seasoned scientists and a large number of cutting-edge tools.
Jerry was welcomed by Agent Coulson when he arrived. He was followed by an Avengers member named Hawkeye, who was holding a bow and arrow.
“Miss Wizard, I appreciate you coming over to help.”
“Agent Coulson, we meet again. Your hair looks fantastic!” Jerry shook Coulson’s hand and cracked a joke as he looked at him with side-combed hair.
Coulson strikes him as the most likable of the agents he has seen so far. Coulson feels more sincere than Hill, Black Widow, and Director Fury.
