A/N: Another drabble-that-went-poem in English language. The style is rather experimental, I hope you like it! Many thanks to Lady Liadan for helping me with my weird translation into English.
Green and Black
Alcina vom Steinsberg
A gaze like fire. A gaze like ice.
Will fire melt ice? Will ice quench fire?
Green robes swish past black robes.
A sparkle on a spectacle lens, a glitter in an obsidian eye.
A feline hiss, a serpentine sizzle
Snake meets cat
Hands touch, reaching for the teapot
Green advances, Black retreats
Green pauses, Black stills
Side by side at the quidditch match
Black cheers first, but Green holds victory
Afterwards, a mutual drink
Was it rivalry or fun?
Late at night
Black makes his rounds
Green follows quietly,
Morning sun sees them hand in hand.
