Staring blankly at the ceiling Victoria Drew shuffled groggily in her bed. It was roughly four am on a Tuesday morning and Victoria had work tomorrow. Yet, she couldn't seem to fall asleep. In fact she hadn't slept in three days, she was contently in a bad mood, she looked horrible and she was pretty sure the bags under her eyes were permanent. Sitting up, she pulled her Puddlemere T-shirt closer to her body in an attempt to keep herself warm. Kicking her blankets off, she walked over to her closet and pulled out her favourite pair of rainbow stripy socks. The very first time she'd worn these socks her long-time crush, Regulus Black, had asked her out, smiling at the memory she crawled back into her bed. Beside her bed was a framed picture of the two, smiling and hugging each other. They seemed so happy then, but everything had changed. Sighing, Victoria laying her head on her pillow and shut her eyes, shutting out any thoughts of Regulus.
An hour later, Victoria's eyes fluttered open to the sound of something crashing. Suddenly aware that something or rather someone was in her apartment, she grabbed her wand and quietly creeped into the hallway. She held a tight grip on her wand as she turned into the living room. Instantly her eyes, which were still getting used to their pitch black surroundings, noticed a tall figure standing by the tall lamp her grandmother had gave her. The figure seemed to be male; it was facing the opposite to direction to Victoria. Slowly she took a step closer; little did she know her right foot was caught on the cord for the lamp. With another step she found herself falling to the floor with a large crash to signify that she had landed, smooth, she thought to herself. The figure instantly turned to face her and whipped out his own wand, "Vic?" The light illuminated the figure face and Victoria took a sharp breath, it was the extremely confused face of Regulus Black. "Always knew how to make an entrance didn't you love?" He said, sticking his hand out to her before pulling her up effortlessly.
"Where the hell have you been? You said you'd be home four days ago Regulus, Four days. I was worried sick" She screamed, fighting back the tears in her eyes. He looked at her, sadness reflecting in his perfect grey eyes and placed a small kiss on the top of her head.
"I'm sorry. The mission took longer than we expected" He muttered into her curly brown hair.
"I don't like these missions you go on. Why is it always you who gets the difficult ones? Why can't he ask someone else for once?" She whispered miserably, pulling away from him. "Narcissa told me Lucius hardly ever goes on missions, they actually spend time together" Regulus took a deep breath, He wanted to spend every waking second with her but it was complicating.
"I know, I know. I'm sorry, I really am, I promise I won't go on any more missions for a while okay?" He asked, slipping his hand into hers before pulling her towards the couch and lying on top of her. "Say you forgive me" He said, placing a soft kiss on her neck. "Go on forgive me" He kissed her on the cheek. "I know you forgive me" Finally, he placed a kiss on her lips and rolled over so she was on top instead. Victoria giggled and intertwined her hands with his.
"I'm sorry; I didn't mean to snap it at you. It's just I haven't slept in days because I've been so worried about you" Regulus frowned up at her, He hated leaving her for missions but it was either go or get killed. Victoria didn't understand this though, she was a pureblood, Slytherin at Hogwarts but her parents didn't believe in blood purity. This made her a bit of outcast, an easy target for the rest of the house. In fifth year he had been dared to ask her out, the entire house knew about it, of course except for her. He'd found her by the lake with the most ridiculous rainbow socks on, the exact pair that she was wearing now. Regulus smirked, and wrapped his arms around her small waist.
"I'm sorry too. I should have come home earlier, I missed you" Victoria nodded and kissed his cheek softly. "So you say you haven't slept in days? Does that mean you don't want to have any fun tonight?" He said, raising his eyebrows suggestively. Victoria giggled again and stood up, walking down the hallway a bit she turned to Regulus and whispered seductively.
"Why don't you follow me and find out?"
Authors Note; There you go, A brand new novella that's actually different to everything else I've written, woo! But seriously this is different to everything else I've ever written, You want proof? a) my main character actually has a boyfriend at the start of the novella b) This is after Hogwarts c) It's not completely based around the Marauder's (although they will be appearing from time to time) d) it's a darker fic. See? Completely different, Aren't you proud of me? Anyway you might of noticed that I made Regulus a bit of a romantic, I personally think he was a sweet guy who was just caught up in the wrong crowd but that's my opinion. I hope you all enjoyed this chapter very much and will continue to read the rest of the series. I'm sorry this chapter is very short but the next chapter is much, much longer and more interesting. Please review guys!
