Give, No Take

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. Oh my Merlin! It's my first Bellamort… O.o

sSsSsSsSsSs

"So make up your mind for me

Walk the line for me

If you want my love

If you want my love"

Depeche Mode, "Judas"

sSsSsSsSsSs

My most

prized

follower

She always assured that

she would do anything she could

for m e

(and Bellatrix doesn't disappoint)

She s a y s

that she'll…

Curse for me

hunt for me

t o r t u r e for me

murder for me

&& it'll all be

in my name

What more could a

Dark Lord

ask for?

sSsSsSsSsSs

She was young

very young, in the beginning

But she was the kind of deranged I

sought

All the others couldn't compare

Don't even ask about

Lucius

Rodolphus

Rabastan

(certainly not Pettigrew)

Rabastan was a mindless follower of his brother's

Rodolphus thought himself my right-hand man…

…when that's actually Lucius, and even

he

can't possibly compare to Bellatrix

No, a fresh, new, young mind

will do the

m o s t

d a m a g e

sSsSsSsSsSs

She had no problem with the other tasks

but even Bella

had a hard time with my

"specialty"

So when she finally killed,

I knew it was time

I would truly take her under my wing

&& keep her by my side

because she was the only one

with the gall

to mindlessly

(detachedly)

d i s p o s e

of those who oppose me

(and it's not like I could take the chance she might turn)

sSsSsSsSsSs

She knew all the time

What she was doing

Which makes it all the

b e t t e r

So I know I'll never be alone

(though I don't really give a damn)

And I know that my reign will have

LEFT

its mark

because they won't forget me

&& she won't be forgotten either

(and why should I have to repay that?)

sSsSsSsSsSs

Whoa… Eerie… O.o… But veeery Voldy, I think. This is really only kinda romance, though…as he's rather incapable of loving. But not too bad here, I think.

Thanks for reading and please review!
