Victoria groaned from the pain as a ray of sun beamed into her eyes. She ignored it and rolled to her side, only then noticing that she lay on the floor. No wonder she was so sore. Her entire body felt like someone had dropped a tonne bricks onto her sleeping form. God, She must have drunk a lot last night.
Suddenly the previous night came flooding back to her. That man, He knew who Regulus was. Which meant he had to be wizard, a Death Eater. Victoria's mind flickered to the Death Eater's she knew, Lucius, Barty, Rabastan and Rodolphus. But no, It wasn't any of them. Victoria found that she was almost shaking with fear, whoever this man was obviously had something against Regulus and he was going to use her for what, She had no idea.
For what seemed like hours Victoria stared up at the blank ceiling, trying to decipher where on earth she was. She'd read many muggle crime novels before were women had been kidnapped and offered as ransom but not once had they'd explained how to escape if you found yourself in such situation. "Bugger" She whispered, pushing herself off the floor in order to get a better look at her 'prison
The room was average-sized, and from what she could tell it had never been used. The disgusting flower patterned wallpaper was torn in places, obviously the owner disliked it as well. On the furthest side was a window, Victoria slowly approached it, her eyes gazing out to see empty paddocks that continued on for miles. It was the perfect place to take someone, No one would ever find them.
And of course, they had taken her wand. She cursed loudly, a deep voice from behind her interrupting her thoughts. "Got quite a mouth on her this one" Victoria jumped and flipped around to see her kidnappers.
Two men. The one who had spoken had short, incredibly messy dark brown hair that covered some of his forehead, a few rogue pieces falling into his hazel eyes. Victoria almost fainted when she caught sight of the second man, He looked much the same as in his school days. Still the same black hair, although it had been cut slightly shorter and the same taunting grey eyes.
"Sirius?" She whispered, almost not believing her eyes. Sirius, and who Victoria had now identified as James Potter stared directly at Victoria's shocked face.
"Well, Well. If it isn't Regulus's little lover" He replied, tauntingly. It was obvious now, that voice. It belonged to Sirius, not some Death Eater. Now that she thought of it, Sirius was the perfect candidate.
"What do you want?" Victoria growled as James pushed her into a chair, a nervously looking Lily Evans had bought in.
"It's simple. You tell us what your boyfriends up to or we kill you and then him. It's all up to you Drew" Sirius sneered, bending over slightly so he could look into Victoria's eyes. In the corner of her eyes she could see Lily grab onto James' hand, so they were still together just like her and Regulus.
"When hell freezes over Black" She spat, Sirius looked taken back.
"Let me repeat that for you" He said calmly, the shock still evident in his eyes.
"No let me" And before Sirius could respond Victoria shot out of her chair quickly, a small scream of pain escaping Lily's lips. Victoria grabbed onto the chair as Sirius walked towards her clearly trying to hold his laughter in.
"And what are you going to do with a chair?" He teased.
"This" She replied, throwing the chair with full force at Sirius's head. A deep groan of pain signified that it was right on target. James sprung to action, quickly dropping Lily's hand to grab onto Victoria's arms pulling her backwards as Lily attended to Sirius's head.
"Feisty" Sirius taunted, standing up from the floor. "I can see why my brother likes you, At least he has taste in one aspect"
"Leave him alone" Victoria seethed, grinding her teeth together. Victoria had harboured an extreme distaste for Sirius ever since he had left the Black's, not because of him being a Gryffindor or mixing with 'dirty blood' simply because of what he did to Regulus. "It's all your fault, What Regulus is doing. It's all your fault"
Sirius stared at her with utter distaste. "Why, because of my muggle-loving actions?"
Victoria glared back at him. "No, because you left him. Everything he's ever done he did to get your parents attention, He wanted to fill the space but he's never good enough for him" She paused, close to tears now, James released her arms and Lily looked like she was ready to hug her at any moment. Sirius was just plain speechless. "He does what he has to, to try and receive your parents approval. To try and show them that at least one of their sons wasn't an complete and utter screw-up but they never care" Sirius's face became stony. "And for that I blame you"
Authors Note; Well that has to be the quickest update for this novella so far, and hopefully there will be many more this quick to come. I believe, this one is a tad shorter than the previous chapter and I probably could've add a bit more onto the end but instead it's going to be at the start of the next chapter, which is probably going to make more sense. I've got Chapter Five is written and ready to be posted as soon as possible. I'll try as best as I can to get it done within the month. As for other updates, I'm taking part in NaNoWriMo so I'm planning on writing ahead for pretty much everything so I'll have at least a few things to post. Anyway, I think that's everything and thank you guys for reading this chapter, Review please!
