HP drabble: Winter Comfort [Minerva, general]
Title: Winter Comfort
Length: 100 words
Summary: Minerva curls up by her fire.
Note: Written for my holiday drabble cards, 2015.
The autumn term was over. Every book was back to its proper place, each stray piece of parchment had been tidied away, and the house-elves had dusted, polished, and mopped every surface until it shone.
Fir boughs cast a clean scent, and their dark green was enlivened by the red berries and shiny leaves of holly, and the softer green and white of mistletoe.
A flick of the wand lighted the great oak log in the fireplace. Minerva sank into the comfort of her favorite chair and sipped from her wassail cup, remembering all the winters that had come before.
