Embrathiel What if the road to hell isn't paved with good intentions? What if good intentions that go awry sometimes lift us higher than we would have ever thought possible? After the DOM, Harry bears his soul to Hermione in a letter, provoking the incident that gave them a chance at true happiness. Damn the consequences, because their love is worth it, and who needs that pesky vision anyway?
His mind was otherwise occupied.
When he went back into the house, he was struck by just how dark it was. There was no urgency to get them fixed. He had been known in the past as the man who never turned on a light and it would most likely be the same in this house. Once you get to know your home, finding your way around in the dark made sense…at least to him and he had always been frugal.
Darkness had never been an enemy but this house…this house had no outside ambient light source. Most of his days were filled with the tedious task of unpacking bins and boxes and realizing that the movers had misplaced most of them.
There were moments of grieving the loss of a treasured piece that had been broken in the move but he sojourned on. With apologies for the disarray, he graciously allowed them to come inside and look around. Several of them offered help with the unpacking and one woman eagerly offered her gardening skills.
It was his quiet time, interrupted only by the train whistle or an occasional ambulance siren in the distance. A street light maybe? His eyes had played tricks on him before and he was no spring chicken. That rickety old fence needed to come down, so he called Daniel, the handyman who had stopped by when he first moved in.
They worked and talked and sipped ice tea and worked and talked and sipped ice tea until they got the old fence down. There was a sadness when he looked at where it had once proudly stood.
He had always believed that when you abandoned or destroyed a part of your past, it left a permanent scar. Would she weep over the loss?
Would it be, to her, like losing a piece of herself? He helped Daniel load the broken pieces of the fence onto his trailer and then watched as he slowly drove down the street to the local dump.
As he glanced toward the garage, once again, he saw the light in the middle window. The next morning, he was breaking down boxes for the trash when he noticed a truck coming up the driveway.
A jovial man jumped out, handed him his card and introduced himself as Mel. That was a good thing to know and he seemed to be as nice as the other people he had met.
It needed to be tore down.
