Godric-Forsaken Night

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

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

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!).

Thanks for reading, and please review!

2016 note: *LOL* I agree with my A/N from 2010—it's the Lucius Effect. XD I'm not big into Ginny with other wizards outside Sirius, and I dislike Harry and most of the "big" Draco ships, but I kind of like Draco himself, so I'd choose Drinny over Hinny any day, tbh. ;P Ahhh, I still love this piece.
