Everyone was in the Great Hall except for two staff members. Those staff members were Minerva McGonagall and the new Headmistress, Dolores Umbridge. Everyone was silent so they could hear what the argument was about. And since they were shouting at each other the students and other staff members knew it was about Albus Dumbledore.
The staff knew Minerva was married to Albus. That's why Minerva couldn't stand being around Dolores. Dolores seemed to think Albus was the worst man on earth. And Minerva hated her more then she despised Sybil Trelawney.
"You can't just make so many absurd rules just so you can be happy!" Minerva yelled.
"You have no say in the matter Professor McGonagall. What I say goes. Don't get snippy with me just because your dear Albus isn't here." Umbridge said coolly. The students looked at each other. Umbridge may have thought it brave to say something like that. But all the students new it was stupidity. Dolores was a Slytherin after all.
"You know what? You're just jealous because the man I love loves me back. And Fudge can't stand you! The best you can do is Filch. And I doubt he would even have you!" Minerva yelled. Some students laughed.
"I bet you ten galleons Min turns the bitch into a toad." Rolanda said looking at Severus. He shook his head.
"Minerva would not cast a spell on Delores. Minerva would hit her." Severus kept his eyes on the open doors. You couldn't see them but you could definitely hear them.
"All right then. Ten galleons it is."
"I will have you know that Cornelius and I have been dating for 7 months." Umbridge said.
"I highly doubt that! I'm surprised any one can survive after looking at you face for too long!" Minerva shouted. Students giggled. They never knew how Minerva lasted so long without beating Dolores senseless.
"Well I least Cornelius doesn't leave me without a goodbye and isn't an old codger that is completely mental. And furthermore...." It sounded as if someone fell. There were footsteps coming to the Great Hall and a shout. "Probation!" They heard Umbridge yell.
Minerva walked in the Great Hall muttering under her breath. She took her seat at the staff table. Everyone looked at her until Dolores walked in. Her eye was blackened and was swelled up. Few students let out giggles.
She was about to yell at Minerva but she noticed all eyes were on her. She wasn't going to humiliate herself in front of the kids. She knew Minerva would say something that would only have them disrespect her more. "What are you all looking at? Continue your meal." And with that Umbridge left, to heal her eye most likely.
All heads turned back to Minerva. She looked up. She didn't seem very mad. She seemed pleased. "What?" She said innocently. "The bitch shouldn't have talk about my husband." She returned to her meal.
"You owe me ten galleons Rolanda." Severus turned to Rolanda and smiled.
