Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Me, Myself and Her

Unfortunately, life seldom plays fairly. And I was about to fall in its clever game.

1,726 6
2 The "Plan"

Note to self: one should never make plans when drunk. Much less see them through.

1,884 3
3 Pureblood Duties

“This isn’t a game Draco.”
Oh, but that was precisely what it was.

4 The Real Question

Wonderful. My future wife is mentally unstable.

1,603 2
5 The Other Greengrass

While I freely admit that I know almost nothing of marriage and love, I was pretty sure this wasn’t how it usually went down.

2,070 2
6 The Bribe

And I’m not talking about pocket change.

1,972 3
7 The "Big Day"

All too soon, the “big day” arrived; although, I had awoken that morning feeling as disappointed as usual.

8 Moving In

“You want to move in with me?” she asked, yet spoke as a statement.
“Well, I don’t
want to, but it would be the more reasonable alternative.”

9 Wales

The window to my right provided a welcomed escape for my thoughts, even though it was only animated by the horrible weather of Wales.

10 A Grieving Wife

I felt strangely sorry; after hearing her pain every night, I knew better than to judge her. I sometimes even found myself wishing she would stop hurting, not for my ears’ sake, but for her own.

2,133 3
11 The Art of Lying

Of all the reactions in the world, I panicked.

1,630 3
12 Of Responsibilities and Debts

Alright, so I didn’t want to write nor read poor articles, Daphne, to be like her, to waste my life nor to depend on my reputation/heritage. Sublime: my life had always and only been just about this – with the possible exception of my sixth year at Hogwarts.

13 What Had I Done?

I was eager to learn more about her, I wanted to, and this genuine sentiment surprised me.

1,126 8
14 It's a Start

“I’m so, so sorry. I really am.”

1,305 6
15 Apologizing, Pleading and Misunderstanding

“Of course I do,” I spoke through clenched teeth.
I threw a sideways glance towards Astoria, whose widened eyes were watching me intently.
“But they never let it go.”

1,438 5
16 The Big Book and the Small Book

If I had had to label this photograph with one word, it would, without a doubt, have been “Happiness” with a capital “H”.

1,513 6
17 Alone

It was astonishing, really, how much she had been through – alone.

1,513 4
18 My Pleasure

She wasn’t exuberantly overjoyed or gasping for air, no. She looked contented, serene. Which was what I had been hoping for.

2,024 5
19 Paying the Relatives a Visit

The expression on her face was priceless as she saw us, dressed as we were and in each other arms, smiling for no apparent reason. Astoria actually giggled a bit.

1,357 4
20 A New Life

A new beginning. A new life. I liked that.

1,242 6
21 Epilogue

The end.
