Severus and Narcissa ~ Malfoy Manor ~ Complete

Everything you do is triggered by an emotion of either desire or fear.

Wednesday, July 19th ~ Evening

An adequate if unremarkable dinner, in Narciss's opinion anyway, followed by an evening of pursuing the new catalogs sent out by her favorite drapery manufactuer found her in her study. Pulling the notes she kept on what she'd purchased when, she was shocked to find that the drapes in the fourth floor guest rooms hadn't been replaced in over ten years. It didn't matter that they hadn't been used in all that time. It was the principle that mattered.

About the time the Dark Lord frenzy was heating up again.

So - tacky and inconvient.

Rising, she was preparing to inspect the draperies herself when an elf appeared, announcing Mr. Severus Snape was waiting in the drawing room. Her eyebrows rose slightly as she tossed the catalog back on the desk. After entering, Narcissa tilted her head taking in his appearance.

"I do wish you'd come along earlier, Severus dear. Dinner would have been much more enjoyable. Bella appears to be out and about and I had to dine alone."
