Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This pairing was discovered by my buddy, Morghen, so please give her a little mention if you write them! Thanks! It is one of many of Mew and Mor's Weird Pairings, most of which you may find in my forum topic in the HPFC, found here (Just take out the spaces!): http : / forum. fanfiction. net/ topic /44309 /25299326 /1/ Read, review, and enjoy!

She wonders

'How could it have come to this?'

Too many years of her life

W A S T E D

And all because she followed someone else's decision

Marry Lucius

Have Draco

Raise both of those conceited children

Yup, what a

w o n d e r f u l life

%%%%%%%%%%

At first,

she thought that she'd want a son

who knew his worth

Draco's not that son

He's…

another Lucius

When it all comes down,

he'll save his own skin first

Not like his mother,

who will save her blood

No matter what

%%%%%%%%%%

Aww, look at all those people

Five years after the war

Five years after she lost her husband to

Azkaban

Five years after her son became a

G H O S T

of himself

A hand touches hers

"Mrs. Malfoy, I…"

He's sheepish and unsure and oh, he's that round boy who Draco used to tease

He's not so round anymore

He's thin and waif-like

He can't seem to finish his thought, but he looks at her with something akin to…

Pity?

No, it's

e m p a t h y

&& it's nice because after all these years,

someone doesn't see her as an evil, Dark witch

%%%%%%%%%%

She never had a choice

She'd always followed someone else's decision

She…

She'd never admitted it before, but she was

a v i c t i m

And he understands that

He came to understand that he couldn't, shouldn't judge so much

& he's the one who now judges the least

%%%%%%%%%%

It happens

She cares for him, takes care of him a little

Like he's her

s o n

Then it continues

His empathy grows, no, morphs

She cares for him more, doesn't have to take care of him as much

Like he's her

s i g n i f i c a n t

o t h e r

Oh, this is different

He takes care of her

That's never happened before

It's

N i c e.

Really.

Pleasant, too.

&& she begins to think that she'll make her decision

for once

Ooh, Narcville. This pairing really has me interested and I wonder how this could've come out so…deliciously awesome. Forbidden lust/love is the best, right? XD

Please review! Thanks for reading~!

Oh, Morghen, we do love our Neville. And Narcissa, it turns out—but who's better? Narcrid or Narcville?
