Manus Nigra (Black Hand)


She occupies his thoughts.

Her eyes, nose, lips, and her body – her smell, her.

Everything that makes her up – Hermione Granger, drives him absolutely insane.

He stands now by her bedside, watching her as she slept.

Ever since that fateful evening when his best friend, James Charlus Potter, arrived at his doorstep with an unconscious form of a girl.

It was raining heavily that night.

He thought his best friend killed her.

He’d have gladly hid the body with him then… but that was not the case.

“Ennervate,” he remembered James saying as he watched him point his wand at the chest of the girl’s lithe form.

He was beside them in an instant – watched as the girl opened her brown eyes which darted from James to him, a flash of recognition immediately reflected on her eyes as they heard her sucked in a breath as he heard her mention his name.

He told them they were insane.

The witch was clearly his.


From the moment she breathed his name, she became his.

She was an enigma.

She was his thirst.

He wanted to know everything about her.

He wanted to do everything with her – to her.

He obsessed about her, too much – too much, until it came to this.

It’s been a year and a half since that night.

Four months since war ended with all the Horcrux gathered and destroyed along with Voldemort when the sleeping witch unleashed a fiendfyre so strong that the Parkinson Manor, where the Death Eaters were formerly convening and using as hide-out, is still burning and on fire to date.

As soon as the war ended he urged her to continue living with him.



Everything – everything to make her stay.

She did.

“Sirius? What are you doing?” she asked groggily as she started to come to
