Private I would have written earlier, but for the slight… - Malfoy's Journal

Private

I would have written earlier, but for the slight inconvenience that for the past few hours I've been barely able to move. It began with anger. Fear, too, but the anger was dominant. I knew then that Harry Potter was facing something unpleasant, probably Death Eaters but possibly Voldemort himself, and that I should steel myself for the pain that was to come. Still, nothing could prepare me for the agony. They were cutting him, collecting blood, and that alone told me my dear aunt Bellatrix was involved. Potter realised it too, but I didn't even need his confirmation in my head. She's always been a sadistic sort.

Harry Potter had the good fortune of being able to pass out, but I was in the middle of my Divination practical, and after all it wasn't my blood that was being drained. I got a full and vivid dose. I tried to send Harry some feeling of hope, of peace, conjure up an image of green meadows and blue skies, but I don't know if any of it got through to him. It was hard enough to keep up appearances myself, sweating and groaning with exertion as I was. I barely got through the three hours consciously. Still, there was one bright spot. In the crystal ball and tea leaves I saw nothing but images of death and pain, so Trelawney's bound to give me a high mark.

So, I have made my choice, and soon I will return to Voldemort's hiding place to take his quarry from him. Harry has assured me his support and Dumbledore's protection, and even though I insisted on Substantia Necto I'm starting to feel like I trust him a little even of my own accord. Very strange experience. For the first time in what feels like forever I choose my own fate. If it is to be my doom then so be it. It is mine. And I actually feel rather good about it. Not ashamed, not terrified, not anything I've been for the past year. Proud. Yes, that's what I am. I'm proud of what I'm doing. That must mean what I'm doing is good.

From the moment He he realises we're gone I'll be a hunted man. Malfoy Manor will not be safe, naturally. I'll need to find alternative lodgings. I could never have foreseen it, of course, but it is curious good chance that I've sent Mother away from home, for she won't be easy prey if she's living on her wits, away from her usual haunts. Still, I would have liked to have explained it to her myself. To explain why I did what I did. And what I'm doing now.

Private to Pansy


Another great change is upon us. I need to know if you're with me, if you'll follow me again this one last time.

On the off-chance you're still reading this, wherever you are: how do you fare? You may want to get out of the country for a while, or at least get off the beaten path a little.

It's good to see your handwriting again, mother. I hope you've found some amenable place to stay.

Believe me, I do.

It'll do for now. I've taken the liberty of... sprucing a few things up.

You don't need to worry about your not-so-dear, old mother anymore.

I gather from that the place needed sprucing up... Tell me, does Snape know you're staying at his house?

You're not old, you will always be dear to me, and I don't regret what I did. I'm just advising you, for your own wellbeing, to stay out of the way for the moment. It might be wise to place a few extra wards on the doors and windows.

...I asked him through an owl when I had started the sprucing up. Let me tell you, there was a lot of work to be done. Severus told me not to do anything because I might break a nail, but honestly. Does he expect me to live in a cave?

Why? What's happened?

I don't want to know what Snape expects, or wants. He's not worthy of you, mother.

Well...you always say I'm such a sweet boy, right?

(OOC: Hee. The roles have totally switched.)

He's perfectly worthy, Draco. You don't understand.

...What did you do?

[ooc: I KNOW. I love it. XDD]

I understand perfectly.

Am about to do, mother. I'm going to let Potter out of prison.

Well, there really is no easy way of saying this. I've changed sides. Or am about to, rather.

I can not believe I thought I loved you, how dare you after all we have done and spoken.

What? Have you gone mad?

Why was I expecting this?

Actually, I haven't been as sure of anything my whole life.

I need to meet you tonight, meet me in the old potions classroom for prefect rounds. I expect, for once, not to have to give you any more explanations.

You giving me explanations?

I'll be there. But it has to be quick. I can't let him wait much longer.

Oh I completely understand I am taking a back seat again. Typical of you, Malfoy.
