Friday, August 11th ~*~ Evening
To say that Harry had not been... pleased to hear that Bellatrix had been in contact with Daphne once more would have been an understatement. Not that she admitted it at the time, especially not after all the protesting she'd done before about Harry treating her like some kind of fragile doll, but Daphne was actually relieved that Harry had insisted on accompanying her to the shack. Bring him or don't go at all.
She couldn't stand Bellatrix up, not if the older woman really did have some of the answers they desperately needed to free the others. Vera and Adrian were her friends and Daphne couldn't leave them wherever they were. Then there was Harry. Malfoy really was close to him and she could see how his absence was hurting Harry, eating at him. For my friends and for Harry, I can't give into my fear and run away.
