Pairing: Tom Riddle/Lily Potter
Voldemort believed that killing Harry once and for all would erase the memory… drive away those powerful green eyes that pierced him so. Their gaze followed him everywhere, making him feel exposed, naked. There was an enigma lying within them, something foreign and painful to his heart, like sand in a wound. It was the look Lily Potter cursed him with, the emotion in her eyes as she protected her infant son from his own Unforgivable assault. The part inside of him that was once just a boy called Tom Riddle longed to decipher it, but he would never understand, and Lily's eyes haunted him for all eternity.
