Author’s Note: All characters belong to JKR. I just play with them and pinch their bottoms a bit when she’s not looking… Do I have to tell you I make no money from these words…No beta….

She grinned, and she had not felt like grinning for a long, long time. They say when you’re healthy, you can’t remember how it feels to be unwell, and when you’re sick, you can’t remember how it felt to feel good.
She had been in the latter category so long she wasn’t sure the former existed.
She was not exactly afraid of death, just of the absence of life. It would be a pretty piss-poor thing to finally slip the bonds of this earthbound pain that had taken over her life, only to find herself bored out of her tits when she reached the other side.
It was warm, and golden. It reminded her of Tuscany, of October, of her own personal Autumn, before the pain settled in and took away every pleasure she’d enjoyed: the crunch of a crisp apple, the sweet ecstasy of the perfect orgasm; reading her favourite book for the tenth time.

He turned to her, finally, all dark eyes and sardonic eyebrows. “You are part of it now.”
Her heart gave a little leap, as if recognizing a favourite song. He was glad to see her; he just had never bothered to learn how to show it.
Bored she would definitely NOT be.
