I don't know when the eyes gazing into mine became Harry's and not hers. It wasn't when he returned to the Shrieking Shack to collect my body and found it gone. That, I do know.
Albus taught me to be invisible, just as he taught me many other vices of survival.
Watching Harry then, Lily's son, victorious but not celebrating, I saw too much guilt in his expression for me to separate him from his mother. The guilt bled into his eyes, leaked down his cheeks, confused me. I told myself he was just another Gryffindor who took too much of the world's burden upon his shoulders. I told myself that his feelings weren't meant for me, but for himself. I told myself that he wasn't her.
What I never thought to tell myself, even in the privacy of my own mind as I knelt in one musty corner's dark neglect to eavesdrop on the brat's "apology," was that I should leave him.
Those eyes, I couldn't look away from them, but then, I've always preferred green—and replenishing one's blood supply is an exhausting affair.
Yes, that's why I stayed to listen to him.
