The Gift...

T
It was apparent, even then, that she was 'special'.  Her gift, they said, came from her mother's side but that was never proven.  She used it from a very early age--seeking small things at first but then wielding it's full power as she grew.  It was only a matter of time before the people knew that she possessed the 'gift' but they waited to see which way she would chose--light or dark.  They didn't have long to wait.  This is perhaps the only photo in existence today of Bellatrix as a child.  All others are gone--burned with her body on the hill overlooking the sea.  These powers are not to be toyed with, you see...

  1. A dangerous gift... and very visible in those eyes... A "gift" of dubious value.

    1. Couldn't resist this one...some excel at a very young age. Wicked though it is. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks, Susan, some just come unbidden. This was so quick, not sure where it came from except I'm a big fan of Harry Potter. A bit of the wicked/insane/childness of Bellatrix seemed appropriate. Thanks for your wonderful remarks, you made my day!
