A HariPo freeverse piece

"Disillusioned—I was disenchanted,

Forgot the love that had been implanted,

Heard the lies and I felt the cold,

It broke my heart and I lost control—

Now I'm a satellite of a free state,

I'm a satellite of hate."

Depeche Mode, "Satellite"

Ugh.

It disgusts me to see her with the likes of

Lucius

He's been proven evil

how many times?

& yet, it's as though she

can'tgetenough of him

despite what we could've had

%%%%%%%%%%

It was back before all the

clutter

Before Lucius was o.u.t.e.d

Before I became the Minister

& before this all became

c-O_m-P_l-I_c-A_t-E_d

(& damn, it did)

Because I saw her & I liked her

right thenandthere

but she didn't see me

at all

He was there

and I was no one

%%%%%%%%%%

I had my suspicions about Lucius

(those who have it all are always up to no good)

My vow:

take her away, to where she might be safe

In the meantime,

D_I_G D-E-E-P-E-R

to find the proof she'd need to

believe me

%%%%%%%%%%

Somewhere along the way,

I realized my "obsession" was actually

a~f~f~e~c~t~i~o~n

&& it spurred me on

I neededwanteddemanded her

But then I became Minister

& Lucius was in jail

& there was that rumor that she had the MARK, too

But I didn't listen to it

(my hear doesn't want to h*e*a*r it)

To think, I once thought of becoming a Death Eater for her

:O MERLIN! I love this pairing! XD Hehe, this take on these charries… Rufus is so pigheaded and proud of himself, it'd make sense that he'd think he knew what was best for Narcissa. And I love that last thought, too!

Thanks for reading, and please review!

2017 note: Hmm. Tbh, I think we didn't get enough of Scrimgeour, so I like stories with him…tho, back in 2010 and even now, I still need to read stories with him. XD
