Write a drabble featuring Walburga as a portrait

102 words.


After Orion and Walburga and Regulus were dead, and Sirius was in Azkaban, Lucretia visited Number Twelve, Grimmauld place.

She had few memories of this house – her childhood having been spent in the Manors in the country rather than the house in the city, but this was where Walburga's portrait would be.

Lucretia picked her way down the hall to the pair of curtains that hid her second cousin's portrait, and tugged them back gently.


She looked old and sick and that saddened Lucretia – she would have liked to see her as she was in her youth – but she smiled.
