|1||Broken: Rose POV
Get up, wash, get dressed, class, rounds, study.
|2||Bent: Rose POV
The world seemed to slow down. Everything around me faded away and all I could see was...
|3||Blown Away: Scorpius POV
I stood up to my full height. He did the same and we stared at each other from across the desk in his study. I realized for the first time that I was taller than him. Not just taller. I had a good two inches on him.
|4||Bereft: Scorpius POV
This was the worst possible way to be woken up by Ron Weasley – in your bed with his fifteen year old daughter clutched in your arms.
|5||Besotted: Rose POV
“Watch where you stand, Rose. I can’t promise I won’t spray you with vomit.”
|6||Bitter: Scorpius POV
“So, are you going to give me detention and make me clean the trophy room?” Al’s voice dripped with sarcasm. “Or will I have to do that better than everyone else as well? Nothing I do is ever good enough for you!”
|7||Better: Rose POV
“Rosie,” he whispered into my ear as he wrapped his newly healed arm around me. “Just give him a chance. You both deserve it.”
|8||Besieged: Rose POV
My trembling fingers reached for my wand in my pocket and I felt my heart plummet through the floor at the realization that I was in my pyjamas and my wand was under my pillow back in my room.
|9||Bombarda Maxima: Scorpius POV
“Incendio!” he screamed and I was once again reminded just how powerful the wizard next to me was as we were blinded by the flames engulfing what was left of the tree.
|10||Back to the Beginning: Rose POV
His words hit me as if I was smacked in the face. I would never be able to lie to him and try to convince him that it wasn’t true, that it never happened. I didn’t have the energy to do it anyway.
|11||Befuddled: Rose AND Scorpius POV
“Skurmis hi yow narken?” That was the best I could do.
|12||Breakthrough: Scorpius POV
Don’t you remember what it was like when Rose was gone? Or when she came back? They were the longest six days of my life.
|13||Breakdown: Rose POV
“It’s too late, love,”
|14||Breakout: Rose POV
“I’m not one hundred percent yet, but I’m getting there. Scorpius helps. A lot.”
|15||Breakable: Rose POV
“It’s harder, you know,” she said, sitting next to me on the floor, “being the one who stays behind. It takes a lot of trust and faith to believe they are going to come back."
|16||Breakages: Scorpius POV
“Dad!” Rose abruptly stood up from healing Auror Stephens’s broken ankle. She couldn’t hide the hurt in her voice. She closed her mouth and set her jaw, trying not to cry at his betrayal.
|17||Beloved: Scorpius POV
“I do love her,” I confirmed, being sure to catch his eyes this time. “I’ve loved her for as long as I can remember. And I won’t ever, ever hurt her. I will protect her with my life, because she is my life.”
|18||Beautiful: Scorpius POV
This was the moment to start talking, but my throat was tight and nothing came out. How could I describe the feelings of remorse, regret and helplessness?
|19||Bombs and Bonds: Scorpius and Rose POV
“This does not get leaked to The Prophet or anywhere else.” He began listing on his fingers. “Spouses don’t know, girlfriends don’t know, twin brothers don’t know. Got it?”
|20||Boredom: Rose and Scorpius POV
“I can’t take it anymore – I’m locked in my own private Azkaban day after day!”
|21||Bedlam: Scorpius and Rose POV
“Dad, what about the – you know…” Albus ended in a harsh whisper. All of the Aurors in the room traded serious looks.
|22||Baleful: Rose POV
I was staring blankly at Albus, trying to make my brain grasp this information. Eventually, my eyes wandered the room, taking in each of the Aurors, and I landed back on Al because Scorpius was refusing to look anywhere but into the far corner. Taking a deep breath, I braced myself for the tears, but they didn’t come.
|23||Broomsticks and Breathing: Scorpius and Rose POV
My lungs filled themselves with air that didn’t smell like a hospital or a three hundred year old dingy house.
|24||Baffled: Scorpius and Rose POV
As a new generation of magic unfolds
|25||Bone Tired: Scorpius POV
“What about Rose?” I was wary.
|26||Bound by Love: Rose and Scorpius POV
Nothing, nothing in the world could have prepared me for this.
|27||Bound by Blood: Rose and Scorpius POV
Scorpius was right in front of me, but he sounded so far away. I blinked to try to hear him better, but now my eyes weren’t working. I squeezed, but my grip on his arms was loosening. The edges of my vision went dark and everything faded away.
|28||Bound by Honor: Rose and Scorpius POV
The overwhelming desire to protect Rose and our baby sped up my spine and shot like adrenaline down to my fingertips. I stroked the side of her face, needing to just touch her and make sure this was real.
|29||Bound by Hope: Rose POV
This was Scorpius and me, together. Physical proof of how much we loved each other.
|30||Bound by Fate: Scorpius POV
“I thought you were going to propose! H-how does… this happen be-before one proposes, Malfoy?!”
|31||Betrothed: Rose POV
“No!” I began forcefully, frustration bubbling up from within, “You envisioned us raising the baby together. I know you did. That hasn't changed. Other than the fact that is it our baby – your baby!”
|32||Blackout: Rose and Scorpius POV
Then everything went black.
|33||Beating Heart: Scorpius POV
I scrubbed my face, pressing hard with my hands and closed my eyes tight, trying to focus on exactly how to tell them just how dire the situation was.
|34||Bated Breath: Scorpius POV
“What is it? Is it Rose? The baby?” My eyes flashed to the monitors. Rose’s heart rate read one-forty and the baby was back up to one-seventy five. “Merlin, no…”
|35||Believing: Scorpius POV
I’ve never, ever seen anyone survive a form of cruciatus that’s been altered in that way. Unless… no, it can’t be...
|36||Blitz and Building: Rose and Scorpius POV
The pain seared down my left arm, essentially making it numb and completely useless. Turning sideways, I could see through the remaining death eaters to the hallway beyond.
|37||Bumps: Scorpius AND Rose POV
For the first time, it felt like this baby was real.
|38||Brutal Agony: Rose POV
“Please, please. I need to. I need to see. I’m a Healer.”
|39||Bereaving: Scorpius and Rose POV
I keep expecting her to walk through the front door -
|40||Buildup: Scorpius POV
“That sort of curse, cruciatus flagrate, erm… wh-what could it have done to the baby? I mean, if Rose had been hit?”
|41||Brewing: Rose POV
“I know, love,” I said. “We all miss her so much.”
“Hold it,” Dom was urgently trying to get everyone’s attention. “Wait one moment. Everyone. Listen!"
|43||Bemoaning and Bearing: Rose and Scorpius POV
Stannous. The baby. Scorpius. The prophecy. My Healing practice. Scorpius. Selenia’s murder. Draco and Astoria’s deaths. Scorpius. Being a new mum and feeding the baby and holding the baby and dressing and undressing and changing nappies. And Scorpius, Scorpius, Scorpius.
