The three of them finally decide on a name for the boy, and then Severus gets a lesson in acting like a lady. Then the party begins, and Severus realizes just how uncomfortable it is to be Bellatrix’s sister.
Wow it was difficult getting through the middle point of this writing today. I got stuck in conversations, and had trouble figuring out when to end it. Once I got to the party itself though, I found it went much easier. Severus is having a tough time of it, but he’s holding out in his rather awkward situation. I’m sure the Malfoys will be grateful to him later, even if Draco never truly knows what all he did for them. 😉
