[info]shiv5468 prompted me with Severus/Hermione: dye, perfume, silk, but Severus sent Lucius in his stead; I hope you can forgive him, Shiv. ;)

Floriographical Optimism (G; Lucius/Hermione; 100 words): Lucius rides to victory.

A wafting floral perfume made Hermione look up . . . in time to catch the bouquet. She caressed the silk of one petal, and its colour drained away like so much dye to paint a message before her:

Gentleman Seven desires that you accept the white rose as your ticket to the annual Salisbury Plain Aethonon Derby.

Hermione blushed. Coral roses represent desire, and white ones . . . .

Intrigued, she attended . . . only to discover that it was Lucius Malfoy who deemed himself worthy of her.

As she watched him ride his mount to victory, she decided to allow him the opportunity to prove it.

Hee I don't mind Lucius turning up instead. Not at all!

(I think he might have had his victory with the invitation. :P)

Lucius definitely wins, and Hermione seems rather happy about it, too.

That should be some "winner's circle." :)
