Author's Notes: Written for Forum Birthday Challenge #8 on xoxLewrahxox's Bellatrix Lestrange: The Dark Lord's Most Faithful forum.

Write a drabble featuring Narcissa and Kreacher.

100 words.


People who did not know better would have assumed that Narcissa would be cruel to her House-elf. They would have thought that she considered them dirty and low and not worth her manners.

They would be wrong.

Narcissa doted on Kreacher. She considered him a pet more than anything else – a pet that did chores and called her "Miss Cissy", yes, but still a pet.

Sirius scorned her for this, Andromeda tried to ignore the behaviour, and Bellatrix teased her for it – though she, Bellatrix, doted on Kreacher as well – but Narcissa did not care. She enjoyed having a pet.
