  5. Bookmark Notes:

    Draco scowled up at him. “What do you even want with this house? You obviously don’t appreciate it.”

    “It’s my house!” Harry snapped. “I live here! Just because you’ve—I don’t know, seduced it—”

    “Oh, yes,” Draco said. “I’ve clearly had to go to enormous lengths to suborn the place, I’ve been here twice since you took ownership.”

    “It doesn’t matter!” Harry said. “You can’t have it. Why do you want it, anyway? You’ve got the Manor, don’t you? What’s the matter, not enough room for you?”

    Draco stood up. “Listen, you rotten little halfblood peasant,” he spat. “This house has sheltered the Black family for twelve generations! Half the portraits on the walls are my ancestors. My mother grew up playing in this house, she used to bring me here when I was a child. Do you know where the secret passage is? Do you know how to open the cabinets on the second-floor landing? You can’t get a book off the shelf, you can’t have even seen the ballroom. I don’t need a roof over my head, Potter. I just don’t want to stand by and watch you abuse and trample over the place.”

    “That’s rich, you talking about me abusing and trampling,” Harry said. “Go to hell. I wouldn’t give you a sack full of broken glass you wanted, much less a house.”

    Draco stood there, hands clenched, and then he said, “Fine. I’ll buy it from you. I’ll sell some of the lands.” He made it sound like he was going to sell an organ. “Five million Galleons. You can buy yourself a charming Muggle flat with all the mod cons and have enough left over to do whatever you want.”

    “Five million—” Harry stared at him, speechlessly.

    “That’s all I can raise!”

    “I don’t care if you can raise twice as much,” Harry yelled. “It’s not for sale.”

    “You don’t want the house, the house doesn’t want you, you can get rid of it and drain my vault at the same time. What more do you want, Potter?” Draco snarled.

    “What do I want?” Harry was shaking suddenly, rage like a wild animal trapped in his throat, clawing to get out. “I want my godfather back! I want my mum and dad back! I want to be living in my own home with my own family, not in an empty mausoleum I’ve only got because they’re all dead!” He was shouting, furious. “But I can’t have any of those things, Malfoy, thanks to you and your hateful crowd and your filthy Dark Lord and your murderous bitch of an aunt; I only have this house, and I’ll burn it to the ground with us both inside it before I ever give it up!”

    The words came up like bile, horrible and true, something he meant without wanting to mean it, something he’d tried to keep buried inside. He stopped, trembling all over. His throat hurt.

    Draco was staring at him, a strange expression on his face, and then he said softly, “So, Potter, you’re one of us, after all.”
