800 Friends Drabble: Pure, for leela_cat

I took prompts to celebrate my flist's hitting the 800 friends mark, and I'll be posting the results as I complete the drabbles.

17. leela_cat prompted me with: Regulus/Narcissa - moonlight.



Pure (PG; Regulus/Narcissa; 200 words)

The party was predictable; Malfoy swanned around with his new bride on his arm like an ornament, and Narcissa feigned delight. They were ill-matched; Andy would have done better for Lucius.

Of course, Andy had other plans, Regulus thought, not at all surprised by how quickly the families had repaired the damage of his cousin's defection.

Everyone was saved now, save Narcissa. Regulus decided that perhaps he should save her, at least for awhile. He murmured something in Malfoy's ear about his Mum wanting a word with Narcissa, and then he led her upstairs.

"What is it?" she snapped, as he closed the door to his guest suite.

"Blacks stick together, that's what. Do you want him to have you first? Do you want that parvenu's hands on you before knowing what pleasure is? I want you, Cissy."

It was a speech Regulus had been practicing for some time. His heart beat hard as he waited for Narcissa's reaction; he hoped it wouldn't be laughter.

The haughtiness faded slowly from her gaze; she almost smiled. "You're a sweet boy, Reg," she whispered, leaning down to kiss him—with tongue!

It was more than he'd imagined, his first kiss, and it was perfect.

Leela, I totally forgot to include any mention of moonlight (so preoccupied by the pairing as I was); I hope the double drabble will allow you to forgive me! *hugs*

Such a nice little taste of young Regulus: selflessly doing his Black-ly best to save Cissy from "that parvenu." Very nice.

Being preoccupied by the pairing definitely forgives you the lack of moonlight.

Thank you. This is lovely. Such a brave, sweet boy, our Regulus.

*relieved; pleased*

He really is, the arrogant little pup. :D *hugs*

Arrogant? Absolutely. He is, after all, a Black and that seems to be endemic to the breed.

And couple that with typical male arrogance, and well, I'm actually charmed. *g*

I forgot to thank you: *thanks* I'm glad you liked it!

The pup has grown on me too. At some point, he will have his own story. He just has to queue behind the ones that I've already promised to someone else.
