Author’s Notes: I’ve got Milli on the brain.
They’d held her back for all the wrong reasons, Blaise thought to himself as he watched Millicent slam the bludger at the opposing chaser. She looked completely different up there than she ever had at Hogwarts. She looked freer.
She smiled at him, a genuine smile that didn’t ask for anything back. He found himself smiling back. How had she managed to get past all that had been forced on them at home and school to find such freedom? To find that peace without pretense?
But he never could ask the question, and she never offered to give the answer.
