Godric-Forsaken Night

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This idea struck me in my sleep and I just had to write it. So, read, review, and enjoy! ;D

You'd heard the rumors

of the

stolen time

when you were gone

(why oh why had you been sent on such a horrible, seemingly

i m p o s s i b l e

journey?)

You can't read it on Ginny's

face

so no hope there

you'll just have to do the dreaded thing &

trust her

%%%%%%%%%%

Hmm, note this

If he comes up anymore,

it's not

"Malfoy"

(well, to you of the trio it still is)

but it's now

"D R A C O"

&& yeah, worse than that

illusion

Ron saw & defeated to destroy the horcrux,

it feels like

needlesarebeingstuckinyour

h E a R t

As a sign you have

moved on,

you accept a certain

invitation

(Hermione says it'll "better relations")

But trust good ol' Ron

to inform you of something he&'Mione use

"2 taps when we ought to…y'know, go 'cause we're…y'know"

& while you're elated for your best friends…

("Really, that's—that's great, guys")

But this dinner at Malfoy Manor was a mistake

When will you learn that a witch can't w a i t for a bloody knight?

%%%%%%%%%%

Ginny looks…

B E A U T I F U L tonight

(ah, she's stolen your breath again)

& you&she 'n Ron&Hermione sup with all 3

(Narcissa'nLucius'nhim)

Some bit of conversation

d i s t r a c t s you

& you turn just in time to

see their eyes meet&see him tap his goblet twice&see him "excuse" himself from the table

Really—as she leaves to "use the loo"—you WISH you had just killed Draco when you'd had the chance

%%%%%%%%%%

:o Spiteful!Harry… I actually had two thoughts to end this—Ginny with Harry or with Draco. I decided on Draco; I blame it on the Lucius Effect. Y'know, love anything and everything Lucius-related…including his son and grandson ('cause Scorpius is such a cutie!).

By the way, I first saw the use of "Godric" in place of "God" in the ever-lovely Aiiimy's freeverses. Her stuff's amazing—go on, peruse! ;) (Love you, Aims!)

Thanks for reading and please review!
