Bellatrix Lestrange held her daughter close, tears of joy and sadness streaming down her face. She knew what she had to do to save her child from a horrible life. Transfiguring her gown into jeans and a t-shirt, Bella carried her daughter from her room.

Aparating in front of a lit house, Bella walked to the front door and knocked softly. When the door was opened, Bella was greeted by a petite, brown haired woman.

"Hello, Bella," the woman greeted, letting Bella inside.

"Jean, it's nice to see you again," Bella greeted warmly, taking a seat on the couch. Once again tears filled Bella's eyes as she looked down at her daughter. Her voice barely above a whisper Bella said, "I need her to be safe. He can't know about her."

"What's her name?" the petite woman asked kindly.

"Ebony Lily Black," Bella whispered, smiling slightly. "I don't want her to have His name. And she's named after a good friend of mine, Lily Evans."

"Is she a pureblood?" Jean asked as she watched the Death Eater.

"Yes but she needs to be raised as a muggle-born for her safety," Bella said sadly. Pulling her wand out, Bella whispered an incantation, placing a glamour on her daughter. "She'll look like you and John. But can you do me a favor?"

"You know I will, Bella," Jean said softly.

"Tell her about me, everything or anything you're comfortable with?" Bella asked pleadingly.

"I will and before she goes to school, I'll tell her about the adoption so she'll know, but I think you should tell her yourself about being her mother and who her father is." Jean promised, taking the sleeping baby from Bella's arms.

"What are you changing her name to?" Bella asked, stepping away.

"Hermione Jean Granger," Jean said. Walking Bella to the door she asked, "What house do you hope she gets in?"

Bella thought for a moment before responding, "I don't want her to be like Him or how I was so, Gryffindor. I want her to be with the Light side." Stepping outside, Bella faced Jean one last time. "Protect her and tell her I love her."

"I will," Jean whispered, watching Bella vanish into the night.
