The Love of A Death Eater

By Spartan10007

Adventure / Romance


Being trained to be a Death Eater at a young age could be considered either a great honor, or a curse. For James, it could be considered both. With his parents, also Death Eaters, arrested when he was a child he had no one to turn to...besides his parents superiors. Growing up, he was forced to endure various tests of strength, including the subjection to a lesser form of a Cruciatus Curse. James was sent to train with each of the highest ranking Death Eaters.

All of these tests turned him into the perfect agent to send into Hogwarts. Since he was still very young, he would fit in perfectly. In order to officially accept him, Lucius Malfoy placed the snaked on James, except he placed it on the middle of his back, somewhere that no one should find it.

Packing up a trunk, James gets ready to go to the train with the Malfoys. Since they actually could walk around in public, there was little to no danger. Getting to the train, James and Draco got seated with 2 of Draco's friends, Crabbe and Goyle.

"Crabbe, Goyle, this is my best mate, James" Draco introduces

The other two greet him while James merely grunts and nods.

"I'm gonna take a walk" James says as he leaves the room. Looking around the hallways, he sees a young girl with pink hair walking towards him while looking at some books. James then phases out as he starts to stare at the young beauty approaching him...who seems to be getting closer

...and closer.

...and closer.


"Ouch!" Tonks says as she runs into another student, causing them to fall on the ground

James and Tonks then look at each other and start trying to apologize to each other. James then places two fingers over her lips

"I'm James" James introduces

"I'm Nymphadora, but call me Tonks" Tonks introduces

"Tonks? OK" James says as he helps pick up the rest of her things

Tonks and James reach for the same book, and accidentally intertwined hands trying to pick it up. Tonks quickly pulled with a blush while James had a startled look on his face. Since the only type of physical contact was to cause an injury, so he didn't know what to think when he felt her soft hand touch his.

Quickly picking up the book and taking the rest of her things, Tonks quickly stood up, followed by James.

"Thanks for helping" Tonks says

"No problem" James says distantly

"Well, I guess we'll see each other at school" Tonks says as she walks away

""It was nice meeting you" Tonks says over her shoulder

" too" James responds as he watches her walk away

Shaking his head James walks back into the room where Draco and his lackeys were. They were each in their uniform, and once James changed all 4 of them waited to leave.

After about 5 minutes, the train officially stopped, and everyone on it un-loaded their things and walked out. They were all greeted by a very large man by the name of Hagrid.

Hagrid led all first years to the boats, where they were all brought to the school. They were all led to the front door of the Great Hall. During the wait, Draco tried to get the famous Harry Potter as a friend, which failed.

However, James saw a familiar pink haired girl standing next to two ginger haired people besides Harry. James then walked through the small crowd to the girl to say hi again.

"Hey" James says

"Oh hi, good to see you again" Tonks says as she smiles at him

James returns the smile with a small one of his own. Professor McGonagall then had everyone go through the doors and walk up to the front table. Each first year was cycled into their "Houses" through the sorting hat. James went up after Tonks, Harry, Ron, and Hermione had been sent to Gryffindor.

James then took a seat and the professor placed the sorting hat on his head.

"Hmm...interesting, very interesting" The Sorting hat says, "Plenty of brains, very courageous...but a very painful past...hmm...where to put you"

Looking at Tonks James whispers, "Gryffindor"

"Gryffindor!" The Sorting Hat announces

The Gryffindor table erupts in cheers as James goes to sit next to Tonks.

"I'm glad you're with Gryffindor" Tonks says

"Me too" James says

Draco and his lackeys were sent to the Slytherin. After all the festivities, all students were brought to their dorms, where they found their beds and stayed up to fool around. Finally getting to bed, James's final thoughts were of Tonks.

In the girls Dorm, Tonks fell asleep thing about James, as the darkness of night consumed the room.
