Rodolphus had been wandering through Lestrange Manor without destination, but he was halted, horrified, by a sound issuing from a bedroom. His wife's voice, unusually high and tremulous.

"Don't stop…"

Rodolphus froze, petrified, then tears gathered in his eyes when he heard a low, masculine moan. He understood.

He stood for a moment that seemed to last an eternity, then agony overtook him, and he fell to his knees, unable to remain upright. The sting of her perpetual rejection was magnified a thousand fold by this undeniable proof of her adultery.

Inside, Bellatrix mewled with pleasure, and the sound combined with Rodolphus's agonized sobs.
