Hogwarts Pastoral

Dumbledore clasped his hands behind his back, and sighed deeply, as he gazed at the long line of witches and wizards stretched across the lawn, cash in hand.

A sickle was a sickle, wasn't it? And the school was benefitting from this new source of funding.

So many people.. and they all looked so happy.

The old wizard smiled, and made a little shrug before going back to his duties..who was he to interfere with the magic of nature?
