RP: Protecting my family
Date: February 13, 2006
Characters: Lucius, Draco
Location: Malfoy Manor
Summary: Lucius takes a risk to see his son…
The air around the manor was always a touch fresher than everywhere else, or at least so it seemed as he walked along the edge of his estate, smelling everything as if he hadn't in years. Well he almost haven’t.
The ground was soft under his step, and his cane made small marks in the path as he walked, the pebbles making a comforting noise under his shoes. For a fleeting moment he could almost forget. Forget that this wasn't a usual stroll or that the manor was warded against him. But the moment didn't last past him turning up to the path leading straight to the manor, the house as impressive as it had always been only seeming more so since it was so long since he'd seen it.
He was pleasantly surprised when the wards recognised him, opened up to him, and let him walk slowly all the way up to the house itself. There, however, other wards took over. New ones. Ones he didn't know – and which didn't know him. He could feel there resistance even as he reached out to knock the door.
Knock the door on his own manor… Where had the world come to? He could not wait for the day when Rodolphus took over and his family could be united again.
Tonight it was about their protection however. The two vials in his pocket containing the vaccine he was to administer. He'd learnt the spells carefully, studied every movement over and over. As much as the healer wanted to come, he would not let him. This, he would do himself. This was keeping his family out of danger. It was even worth having to knock on his own door.
Now if only that blasted elf could answer the door.
