One thing that people didn't realize about Narcissa was that she was a hopeless romantic at heart, and it wasn't something the Mistress of Malfoy Manor openly advertised. She rather liked the stigma that came attached to her--cold and a force to be reckoned with-- so she didn't make any more to change it. But one of her favorite evening activities before bed was lying around and reading romance novels that were hopelessly unrealistic. Sometimes it was nice not to have to think about the real world for an hour so.
She leaned on her side, her blond hair falling down her back as she turned the page in the dim-light of the bedroom. Her tea had gone cold by that point, she was too absorbed. When she finished a chapter she glanced across the room at a clock and noticed how late it was getting. Where was Lucius? Probably working, making an attempt to find out whatever was going on without their knowledge. Sometimes she didn't miss the 'old' days when the Purebloods were in power, because he'd always been gone, and she'd worried she'd get a visit from a Ministry Official at the door telling her husband was dead or imprisoned. She shivered, pulling the blankets over herself as she turned the page, re-reading the same sentence a few times and getting lost in her thoughts.
