She stared at him with an icy aplomb of older than thirteen, cold and hauteur reddening her cheeks.
Rodolphus Lestrange set his glass down on the table with a sardonic smile, watching her through the contradictory mist and clarity of his Killing-Curse-green drink. "Too harsh for you, Bella," he whispered, sliding a finger along the goblet's rim.
Bellatrix Black glared at him, pulled over the glass, and sipped the absinthe. The taste burned bitter down her throat, but she swallowed without flinching, euphoria building. He watched her eyes glitter in intoxication, and smoothed his hand over her hair.
