Happiness is

w-r-o-u-g-h-t

in

destruction

But whoever said anyone needs

h~a~p~p~i~n~e~s~s?

Perhaps they don't know of a funny little story

This little tale of

i. n. t. r. i. g. u. e.

&& it all happened

Once

Upon a

W

A

R

%%%%%%%%%%

Protected houses

((hidden)) locations

aGiLe fighters…

Fleur Delacour Weasley

was settling into the role of

-caretaker-

·feed the freed ones

·heal what could be healed

·keep the stock up…

If only her last task was her

easiest

%%%%%%%%%%

"So longs" && "Be right backs"

seem almost j:u:v:e:n:i:l:e

in hindsight

Fleur waltzed right into town…

never to come back to

S h e l l C o t t a g e

again

All because she saw a handsome face

All because she couldn't tear her eyes away

All because

he just knew of the Veela in her

"Ohh, half-breed…!"

%%%%%%%%%%

No need for running

(no blue ribbons to win today, lovelies)

Her momentary attraction was her

d

&&Fleur was

[caught]

a flower trapped in a vase,

without freedom & d y i n g

(if Scabior were only so kind)

%%%%%%%%%%

Perhaps it was a plan

(No, no, a bit of

oPpOrTuNiTy!)

But the "Ministry" was rounding up the half-breeds anyway

So what better LUCK than for Scabior

to nab not only a part-Veela but a member of

.::the Order of the Phoenix::.

too?

And what a pretty

~beast~

she was…

(oh dear, she was Beauty & the Beast all wrapped up in one package, now wasn't she?

Good thing Scabior isn't as nice as he looks)

%%%%%%%%%%

And

YET

When it came down to it…

Fleur did not begrudge him anything

(not the one who brought her food when captive,

not the one who stood guard around her when the other Snatchers wanted her for…other things,

not the one who spoke to her despite telling both of them

over&over&over

that he really hated half-breeds)

Because

When it really came down to it

&&"Scab" could've escaped on his own

{the Snatchers betrayed him}

{Greyback was going to save his own skin}

{Bellatrix delighted in

d-e-c-i-ma-t-i-n-g

them}

Fleur was NOT going to die there

%%%%%%%%%%

So all that time

*tick-tock*

all that matters is

1.one1.

m*o*m*e*n*t

-a moment of truth-

Scabior:

HERO

or

Heretic

?

. . .

Perhaps we should ask

[Fleur the s-u-r-v-i-v-o-r],

yes?

Because, after all,

not everything's

black&&white

Order&&Death Eaters

:] I liked this a lot, mainly by the end. See, Fleur isn't all about looks! She loves true chivalry, too…and who says only Bill has that? ;]

Thanks for reading and please review!
