Fleur had been on edge since the new year has started. With all of the dark wizards around, Fleur had to be extra careful all around. Not only did she need to protect Lavender and their relationship, but herself as well. She was aware of Voldemort and his minions, a few now holding solid, important positions at Hogwarts. She knew how much blood purity was a part of their mission. And if there was one that was just as bad to them as muggleborns, it was wizards and witches with magical creature blood. Like Veelas. Actually, she was sure especially Veela's. She had heard from her mother how during the last war here in England that Veela's were some of the top hated and hunted creatures by the Death Eaters due to their thrall and effects on humans. With this in mind, Fleur had become much more worried and secretive, needing to protect herself, her mate, and her sister, who still came to visit regularly, and was scheduled to arrive soon.
She was in her storeroom when she heard someone enter. She tensed and fingered her wand in her thigh holster. Hearing her mate call out, Fleur closed her eyes and let out a relieved sigh before coming out of the storeroom. She smiled brightly at her fiancee. "'Allo, chere." Fleur greeted, her eyes raking over Lavender's form and very flattering outfit.
"You look gorgeous, amore." she complimented the girl as she drew closer. Fleur had decided on light blue formfitting robes with a deep v neckline and slit up one side. She decided against her usual muggle clothes for the moment, knowing that they would provoke unwanted attention.
Kissing her lover passionately for a long moment, Fleur then made sure that wards were placed on the door. "What brings you 'ere, amore? You know we must be extra careful zhis year." she hated not being able to spend as much time with her mate, but it was for Lavender's own protection. She loved the younger girl, but she was not the most subtle person in the world.
