A HariPo freeverse piece

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!

Truthfully,

you saw it happen all the time

& you

p i t i e d him

when he least needed pity

A poor rich boy

who needed someone other than those

"friends"

he had

But you didn't step in

You went on as if

he were just a S H O W

to watch

&& you could only watch

%%%%%%%%%%

Did you know?

You were essentially his

f a v o r i t e

teacher

He could work off some of that

pent-up aggression

when flying around

&& he actually appreciated

the discipline you provided

because everything e l s e

in his life was too out-of-control

& most aspects were beyond

repair

%%%%%%%%%%

There was…one thing

You

A D M I R E D

him

He didn't have any big shoes to fill

But there was that

shadow he so desperately wanted

to escape

But it was too late the day Sirius went to school,

for Regulus would always just be his "little brother"

So you should've known

If Sirius is on the side of the Light,

then how do you B A L A N C E this equation?

You guessed it

Regulus could only end up with that crowd

&& you saw & let him spend time with them anyway

when, with a little more training, he… He—

… He would've been a world-renown Seeker

Awww… :( Poor Reggie. Whether with Rosmerta or being admired by Hooch, he really led a sad life. … He's a great case study. XD Anywho… :P *lol* Btw: I really did get that quote from a fortune cookie. Siriusly!

Thanks for reading and please review!
