Once everyone had left after the initiation, Draco breathed a sigh of relief. After getting up off the ground, his parents proceeded to guide him through the manor.
"Why are we going in?" he questioned "I've already received my tasks."
"Hold your tongue. You do not want to anger our superior so soon after receiving the mark." his father cautioned as they walked down the corridor of the Dark Mistress' study.
"Draco, follow our lead. If you upset the leader in the smallest way, you will pay dearly." his mother warned as they neared her study. Draco, being quite ignorant of the fact that the Dark Mistress was in fact above her father in authority; thought that it would be the Dark Lord that they would be visiting. He thought of the Dark Mistress as a cruel joke. Someone of roughly his own age to brand him to make it somewhat more comfortable, little did he know what she really was like.
"Enter," a female voice called as Lucius knocked on the double doors "ah, the Malfoy family. Its about time you came." she sneered.
"Yes, I believe we are here to meet with the Dark Lord." Draco spoke up not bothering to look at either of his parents who, unlike him, had their heads bowed and eyes filled with fear as he spoke.
"Draco, Draco, Draco. What are you doing?" she taunted.
"We are here to discuss my-" he started before he erupted with screams of agony.
"Crucio!" she screamed having enough of his cheek. "NEVER speak to me unless spoken or asked before hand! YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT ME AS IF I WERE YOUR EQUAL! I AM YOUR SUPERIOR, YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ANSWER TO ME!"
Draco finally noticing his parents, he bowed his head trying desperately to suppress his emotions.
"Darling," his aunt said as she walked into the study with her head bowed also.
"What do want woman?" the Dark Mistress demanded, impatience evident in her tone. Bellatrix stood in her tracks stunned for a moment.
"I was sent from your father, he says to treat these guests accordingly." she replied calmly.
"Well why don't you tell darling father to get his lazy arse down here to tell me?" the young girl snapped sarcastically. "Oh no wait he doesn't want to be punished by his own flesh and blood. Get out before I ANGRIHAY you like I did to Dolohov."
"My daughter I beg you to calm your self or you may end up doing something that will push us farther from our goal." her mother cracked in an odd yet all knowing tone.
"Just go." the Mistress sighed in defeat because the only people she gave a sliver of respect to were her parents.
"Now where were we with you Malfoy's?" she mocked. Before uttering her favourite curse "angrihay!" Torchering each of them in turn.
"Now, to the point you have already received your assignment but not yet your conditions, correct?"
"Yes Mistress," Draco panted after getting hit by the spell.
"Good. As you know I have a cover at that pathetic school, of what I will not state but know this, I will know whether or not you are doing your job." she said calmly.
"How do propose I do my first task?" he asked fearfully.
"Have you ever heard of a vanishing cabinet?" she smirked.
"My daughter are you ready to revive the glamor charm?" Bellatrix asked a few days after the ceremony.
" Yes, mother I have been waiting for you to cast it all day, just get it over with." the girl in white sighed dramatically as she waved her wand so that her things would automatically pack themselves.
"I still can't believe what have to become for the school year, Mistress, it disgusts me." her mother hissed
"Oh?" she mocked "enlighten me about your emotions, last time I checked I was the one transforming into this thing."
"I'm aware, but it is a wonder you can put up with it all day, everyday for ten months." she replied calmly as she did the incantation for the glamor charm.
"Are you finished yet?" the young girl asked after a few minutes of Bellatrix's muttering and wand movements.
"Yes, go to sleep now and let the charm settle before you apparate in the morning." her mother sighed "Do you need to side-along apparate?"
"Mother, do I look like a scrawny seven year old?" the girl who was packing sneered "I may be only sixteen but I've been apparating since I was eight if you haven't noticed."
"Yes, of course Mistress, forgive me." Bellatrix bowed.
"I don't forgive and forget woman. Angrihay!" she exclaimed before Bellatrix could exit the room. "Violence High; who knew it could be so satisfying?" she smirked. As she turned to her bed, she decided she would need someone on Saint-Potter's side that was close to him in her dungeons, and she knew just the person. "Whoever said that us Death Eaters didn't have a happy memory is dead wrong; Expecto Patronum! Malfoy, I have a new assignment to add to your list of things to do this year, bring. Me. Hermione. Granger." with that the Dark Mistress' panther patronus leaped out her window.
A/N- The spell ANGRIHAY is one I obviously made up- it is a combo between the Crucious, a fire erupting within the body that doesn't damage internal organs but feels like it, Sectrumsempra, and gives the feeling as if your skin is being turned inside out.
Please review! It doesn't have to be a praiseful review, if you hate it- tell me how I can improve. Please I love consructive critism.
And read and review on Karma's a Fickel Friend while you're waiting, Teri would love it if you did.
