“I knew someday you’d end up here in my home again.” Captured by Blaise Zabini and Theodore Nott, Hermione Granger is brought to Malfoy Manor to be thrown onto her knees at the feet of her former childhood tormentor, Draco Malfoy. A man changed by the insanity of war, Draco has had to play the role of the loyalist for the last several years despite his own disdain for the Dark Lord he serves, or risk his parents being murdered. Yet, he finds that as he looks down into the face of the woman he’d once delighted in harming that causing her pain is the last thing he wants to do. In order to save Granger and to turn his life around, Draco has to dig deep and find the meaning of bravery. But can he, or will his cowardice lead to her doom?
