Taking Over Me

Taking Over Me

Draco and Hermione. ONESHOT. Love hurts. Love heals. Love breaks down doors and mends bridges. Too bad he fell in love with the Mudblood.

Time never seems to pass here, in our world, for us. When your days upon this earth are limitless, you don't ever bother to count the hours...until you are alone. Now, as you enter the twilight of you

Pale green eyes outlined by 37 freckles across a long nose, on a sunbaked face. Red haired children playing in the front yard, strong arms holding her securely, and the laugh of the boy (man, he was a man now) 

It was cold. And wet. So unlike this time of year should be. The war was over, and the world should have been full of sunshine and laughter, but it wasn't. Not for her. Life could be no darker; no fuller of dispair. All around her people celebrated, and life continued, and the war was over, but here she was, staring at a grave that shouldn't exist and wondering where it all went wrong.

Edward reflects on his life of longing and how he would have done things differently if only he too had understood to fear age. AU. Past Bella/Jacob. Past Bella/Edward. Implied Edward/OC.

Summary:  Same steel grey eyes. Same pale skin. Same platinum blonde hair. I find the pain increasing every day. 

"You don't remember me but I remember you."

Five years. That's how long it's been since the end of the war. Five long, hard years. They said the memories would come back with time, but my hope is starting to fade. Each time I see you, you seem to remember less and less. You barely remember my name these days. But I know you. Better than most I would say.

"I lie awake and try so hard not to think of you."

It's hard not to constantly think of you. After all, I have Lily. I love our daughter dearly, but she is a painful reminder of what I know I will never have. You. It's hard not to get lost in old albums of happier times. Times when you still knew who I was.

"But who can decide what they dream? And dream I do..."

I dreamt of you last night. We were at the house on the shore. Just us, back before the war took a turn for the worse and Tom drove you insane through your mark. Severus has TRIED to find a cure. He and Hermione worked for days on end for months trying every combination of ingredients they could think of, but nothing worked.

"I believe in you. I'll give up everything just to find you. I have to be with you, to live, to breathe. You're taking over me."

People think I'm crazy, but I know a cure is out there. I've almost bled the Potter Vaults dry, but that doesnt matter. I will work every day of my life if it means finding a cure. I WILL bring you back to me. To us.

"Have you forgotten all I know? And all we had? You saw me mourning my love for you, And touched my hand. I knew you loved me then."

I think you came back to me today. For the briefest moment it was as if you knew who I was...who you were. You came into the living room where I was staring at a photograph of us the day we were engaged. I knew I was crying. Your deterioriating mental health had taken an enormous toll on me. You asked me what was wrong but I just shook my head. How can you tell someone they have forgotten an 18 year long battle, and the fruits of many peoples labor. You can't. But there it was. Pain and recognition in your steel grey eyes.

"Harry."

It was a breath, but it was there. You reached out to me, and I was overwhelmed.

"I believe in you. I'll give up everything just to find you. I have to be with you, to live, to breathe. You're taking over me."

"Draco?"

But you were gone, and once again, I'm alone.

"Draco, please. Come back to me. Remember! For Lily? For me?"

Pain. I can see you WANT to remember, you just don't know how.

"I look in the mirror and see your face. If I look deep enough, So many things inside that are just like you are taking over…"

Lily is LIKE a mirror...a window into your soul. I look at her and it's like looking at you all over again. Same steel grey eyes. Same pale skin. Same platinum blonde hair. I find the pain increasing every day. There is nothing I can deny her simply because there is nothing I have left to give you.

"I believe in you. I'll give up everything just to find you. I have to be with you to live, to breathe. You're taking over me."

I will join you my love. Soon you and I will be together again. I know you are no longer in pain. No longer lost within yourself. Lily will be taken care of. Loved. She will have a life that I can never give her. After all, how am I to provide for her from within these cold stone walls? Tom took your freedom from you, and I gave it back. I gave my freedom so that you would not suffer. I only hope that when the time comes, you will be waiting for me on the other side.

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

Clare Cormack: Fantastic read! I was gripped from the beginning. The plot twist and change of gear stops you from putting it down. I enjoyed the way the individual characters had their own chapters, reading from their own point of view - believable and identifiable. Im really excited to read the sequel and have...

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

evanhoverly: I absolutely loved this book and the characters in it. The story would often introduce unexpected events keeping it interesting.The book could use a good proofreading before it gets published, but otherwise a good read!

Michael Hogan: If anyone would advise Lindsey Martin-Bower not to mix religion and politics, she would probably tell them to take a hike. This rollicking novella does just that. It considers the case of Yung Sung Gonne and his Universality Church and two young women trying to bring it down. Frustrated by the ru...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Mariah Mattox: this story has a fun entertaining role of the two main characters. the sex scenes are explicit. you really feel the mood of the story. the way the characters deal with a situation is expected for us in the real world.

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

jseversky: Was amazing loved every second of it I really want to read more, and definitely would. Hope the author makes a 2nd book. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, loved it. The author describes everything in in new and innovative ways, and love the 2 separate view points.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.
