The door behind Draco opened quietly, creaking in the midnight wind. His body was shaking as the cold hand pressed down on his shoulder, squeezing the bone painfully.

“You may let her go now,” spoke Voldemort from behind her. The man smiled cruelly as he dropped a sobbing Sylvie to the ground, “I’m sorry I had to do that young Malfoy, but I wasn’t sure if you were being true to me and it was the only thing that I knew would torture you enough if you hadn’t have convinced me of your loyalty. Remember though, that if you dare go behind my back then not only will Sylvie die, but so will every other person that you love.”

Draco’s chest rose up and down quickly as he ran to the small pile in the grass. Her breath was jagged and low but she was all right. He softly picked her up and looked around for his father, who was nowhere in sight.

Voldemort and the deatheater were gone but as he took Sylvie into the large building he felt as if someone was watching him… on the door was a note and as he unstuck in from the wood he felt scared for the first time in a long time. Not the usual type of nervousness he usually felt, but his body was rigid with fear, he was watchful and ready to jump anyone that was a threat to his sister.

“Draco I’m so cold,” whimpered Sylvie in his arms. He nodded and sat her down on the floor, pacing to unfold the note. His hands shook, but he wasn’t sure why, perhaps it was the fear of what had happened, or maybe it was because he didn’t know what was going to happen from this point on but he knew, that either way…. He was afraid.

He unfolded the note completely, watching as words formed on the paper. The black ink was clearly visible, written in a slanting form across the sheet.

Leave her here, go back to Hogwarts and continue your work. If you take her anywhere… we’ll kill her.

It didn’t make any sense to him… why would they even bother hanging her over the lake, why wouldn’t they have just taken Sylvie after they’d left, why make him leave her here in the building? Why would they bother at all?

It didn’t matter though, he had to do what they said… and he’d have to go through with that too.

“Are you leaving Draco?” asked Sylvie, curling her legs into her chest. Draco nodded soberly and knelt down beside her quivering body.

“Don’t worry Sylvie. I’ll get you out of here and we’ll be a family again,” he said running his fingers through her stringy hair.

“With Ginny?” asked Sylvie.

“Yes, with Ginny,” and with those final words Draco stood up and left. The door shut behind him and he left, back to Hogwarts… but not back to Ginny.

In the building, a man approached the girl from the dark shadows around them. Sylvie’s back curled down protectively as the man picked her up. She no longer struggled because she knew that if she did… the consequences would be great.

The man however was wondering what young Malfoy had meant. Sylvie knew something different about the Weasley girl. He would have to report to the dark lord immediately.

“Hey Hermione,” said Ginny sitting down on the couch. Small beads of sweat were making her red hair stick to her face, she’d just come back from running but it didn’t help. She was worrying about Draco… he was gone. “Where’s Ron and Harry?”

“I’m not sure, they left when you came in. Draco… he said some things to them,” said Hermione putting the book over her face.

“What did he say?” asked Ginny, her face paling.

“Just that you were on top, and not to worry about you becoming pregnant,” said Hermione, her face falling to the side as she blinked furiously. Ginny’s lips quivered as she thought of how Draco had betrayed her. Hermione was blinking furiously, obviously trying to concentrate on her book. Obviously it wasn’t working.

“Why would he say something like that?”

“I don’t know, you tell me.” Said Hermione as she got up and went up the stairs.

Ginny’s breath was laboured as she stumbled through the hallways. Her eyes were swollen and red, an obvious sign of the spilt tears. She’d spent the last two hours in a broom closet, not knowing what to do. She didn’t have anyone to talk too, and Draco wasn’t there to explain.

She stopped and rested against the wall, her arms carefully folded over herself. She didn’t even want to see what she looked like right now, her hair must have been disgusting, the way she’d plastered it back with her tears. She slowly let herself fall down the wall. Her body shuddering as she listened for approaching footsteps.

Luckily there were none, and once again she felt tears welling in her eyes. Her nose was raw from being rubbed and she couldn’t help but feel as if someone had ripped out her heart and spit in her face. Surely, she could never feel any worse than this. Then… everything went black.

“Are you okay?” asked a familiar voice as Ginny rolled over in the comfortable bed.

“What time is it?” she mumbled against the satin sheets.

“About two I’d say,”

Her head popped up and she pulled the sheets around her closer. She let her vision come into focus as Draco caressed her clammy hand. “Are you okay now?”

“Don’t touch me,” whispered Ginny pulling away from him.


”What’s wrong?”

“The same god damn thing that’s always wrong Draco!” she said, her voice quivering, “We’re not supposed to love one another and we always end up fighting over it… there’s no easy fix is there. One of us is always messing up the other person’s life,”

“I messed up your life?” he asked sadly.

“Why would you say that to Harry and Ron?” she asked, feeling the tears coming on again.

“Oh… that,” he bowed his head and sighed… he knew what he’d done was wrong, but he’d been so mad. He stood up and went to the door, unsure of what to say… slowly he let his body turn around, with one hand still resting on the door frame he whispered a sincere ‘Sorry’ and left.

Ginny buried her face in her hands, and the screams rang.
