like-my-mother-does

When my mother speaks of you she holds her chest
afraid her heart will burst into a million pieces
shattering before her uncontrollably like her childhood home
nestled comfortably between her favorite mosque and bakery
see I don’t know you
I have my own favorite mosque nestled between suburbia and a couple minutes from my favorite bakery
I don’t ache for you like my mother does
she remembers you in bits and pieces
sometimes you come in waves
building momentum before sending her back in to you
she can still smell the sambusas frying
and the mango juice still drips from her elbows 24 years later
you are like the boy I fell in love with at age four
violent. chaotic. hectic. I wanted more. I wanted to tame you.
you could not be tamed
she still loves you
she still loves you
she’s still in love with you
you who broke her like the athan that pierces through the darkness of the night calling for prayer
you who slices like a marketplace butcher ferociously
you.

Rose wasn’t expecting him to get the reference. And yet he did. “I didn’t know Shakespeare was on the curriculum for Muggle Studies.”

"It’s not," Scorpius admits. Rose smiles.

"Romeo and Juliet is a classic tragedy," she points out.

"Yeah… But we’re not, y’know?" He fits his hand in hers.

"A classic comedy, maybe," Rose laughs.

"Definitely. Especially with your family around."

In which Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy admit to not entirely disliking each other, despite what their surnames might entail. They’re maybe kind of totally the star-crossed lovers of their generation.

"Someone intelligent would cozy up to the Inquisitor if they could. It’d be foolish not to. He can open doors, get you whatever you want, shower you with gifts and power. That’s what they’ll say. I’m the magister who’s using you.”

Francis, Henry had to be stopped. It wasn’t an easy decision to make but I thought it was the only way.
I know what you thought! But you agreed to wait. You lied to me.
I’m sorry.
Sorry for what? You don’t regret it! We both know you’d do it again! When you told me you wanted to relinquish your claim to England, I stood by you, and today, when I told you what I wanted, I thought you stood by me as well. Instead, you worked with my mother to murder the King of France!
