200 words. Bellatrix/Narcissa. Enjoy!


Narcissa had crept upstairs with the intention of hiding from her birthday party, but she should have known Bellatrix would follow her. She yelped as Bellatrix caught up and twisted her hand in Narcissa's hair, eyes narrow.

Narcissa whimpered as she looked up at her sister. "I don't want to go back down–"

"Now listen here, Cissy," Bellatrix said, "you are going to go downstairs, you are going to smile and pretend like you're the sweetest Pureblood girl in the world, enjoying her party, and if you do… then… when everyone else has gone home…" Bellatrix's hand moved slowly to touch Narcissa's breast through her dress, "I'll give you a proper birthday present."


"A present that involves the two of us in the bedroom with a silencing charm…"

It was just like Bellatrix to manage to twist things so she was bribing Narcissa into behaving and getting exactly what she wanted at the same time. And, to Narcissa's profound irritation, it worked. She sighed and nodded, then went downstairs to pretend to enjoy her party, keeping up her smile as she lost herself in thoughts of the things her sister would do to her once they were alone.
