Tie Breaker

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This pairing was discovered by me, so please gimme 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! And check out and join the forum challenge! Slight Theo/Molly 2, Michael/Molly 2, and Zacharias/Parvati, all of which are M&MWPs. Sequel to "Recruitment."

Molly's smart

(duh, she's her father's daughter)

But she sees the little g a m e

Playing out between her boys

Theo & Michael

*they ought to get a life*

but she can't tell them

t h a t

She…

does love them both

HOWEVER

this is starting to become

i n s u f f e r a b l e

%%%%%%%%%%

She knew Theo

first

(well, yes, that does have its advantages)

He is & forever will be

handsomecleverlikeablesweet (even if only to her)

He should've been smarter,

the "shrewd" twit

She could see his advances from a mile

a w a y

&& she kind of liked it…

but not as he liked it

%%%%%%%%%%

Michael was a breath of fresh

REALITY

compared to the former

where Theo contemplated

Mike learned

where Theodore wished

Michael saw cold

hard

f a c t s

& actually, Molly thought there

might've

been a small chance with him

—YET—

he was too caught up

in not being

bested

by his new best mate

when he should've seen Molly couldn't return Theo's affections

"But really, Michael

I can't return y o u r s

either"

%%%%%%%%%%

Oh, how quickly the tides

CHANGE

Molly had one hell of a time

with her next case

—Obliviators—

—Unspeakables—

—those who Control Magical Creatures—

&& so she got her first t a s t e

of handling the

p r e s s

even if he wasn't anything more than a

temp

(really a slave)

%%%%%%%%%%

He was actually as repulsive as they came

selfish git

insincere troll

perceptible buffoon

supposed to be by that

Indianwoman's

side

instead of

h E c K l I n G Molly

Because if there's one thing

Molly can't

s-t-a-n-d,

(more so than Theo&Mike's petty rivalry)

it's someone like Smith

who is so for himself 'n the truth that he's brutally

h/o/n/e/s/t

%%%%%%%%%%

It's a challenge

(that's how she sees it)

Zacharias is so

selfishconceitedarrogant

u n p r e d i c t a b l e

it keeps her on her toes &&

makes her heart race &

her face burn

&& it's such a shocking contrast to what

she's known

She chases after him

(much to Miss Parvati Patil's void of delight)

But at least he's a little

hooked, too

Theo&Mike can protect her all they want

In the end, only her

m i n d

needs a safe haven—

& that's with Zach

%%%%%%%%%%

Hmm. I feel the need, at this point, to point out that Molly isn't sleeping around or a slut. She has merely been looking for love…though it stands to be seen if she'll find that with Zacharias. For that answer, continue on to "Just One Mistake." For more Zachvati, try chapter four of Mew's Every Flavor Fics (it was the first Zacharias/Parvati story, ever) and the freeverse "Something There."

Thanks for reading and please review! On to "Just One Mistake"!
