CHAPTER 22: Just Like Old TimesMature

Alice, Bellatrix, and Narcissa sat together in the living room of Malfoy Manor.  They were talking ang giggling together under a fort they'd build out of blankets.

"Just like old times," declared Bellatrix before taking another sip of an enormous bottle of Firewhiskey.

"You said it Bella," said Alice.

"Took the words right outta my mouth," added Narcissa.

"You know Cissy, this butterbeer is bloody damn good!  Where'd you get it?" asked Alice.

"I . . . I don't remember.  I'll probably remember in the morning."

"So," said Bellatrix, "Are you and Sev still together?"

"Ooh!  How romantic!" cried Narcissa.

"Yeah, we are," said Alice, proud that through eighteen years of thinking she was dead, Snape had remained loyal to her.  "When I went back to Hogwarts, I had to wait in Dumbledore's office and Snape came in for something and -- "

"Did he recognise you?" asked Cissy.

"Of course he recognised her!" said Bella.

"And then?" Cissy and Bella asked.

"And then he kissed me and then we kept snogging . . . his mouth still tastes like chocolate frogs, like it always used to."  She gazed off, remembering how sweet his kisses always were.  "He thought I was dead you know."  Her voice suddenly changed from dreamy to angry.  "How could you not tell him?!?  You knew!  You knew I'd survived!!  You knew everything , but you still didn't tell him!  How could you?!?"

"The Dark Lord ished Severus to not be told.  We had no other choice," said Bella.

"I'm -- I'm sorry, I -- "

"It's alright," said Cissy.  "We understand."

The girls stayed up most of the rest of the night catching up and remembering their days at hogwarts.
