He who robs me of my purse robs me of nothing.
Twas mine, tis his, and has been slave to thousands.
The stars are far brighter
Than gems without measure,
The moon is far whiter
Than silver in treasure.
--J. R. R. Tolkien

Katie Bell is twenty years old and happily working as a consultant and practitioner of the Transfiguration department in the new and improved Ministry of Magic, under the benevolent rule of Kingsley Shacklebolt. She has a lovely flat to herself, an excellent relationship with her two parents and three girlfriends who have always been there for her. However, it's safe to say that something is perhaps missing from her life.
After her first sighting of the loathsome, but now annoyingly rugged, Marcus Flint, negative memories of Hogwarts and the battle that changed everything resurface for Katie and she is forced to face the question: is she really living her life or just existing?
But when someone starts to stalk Katie, she is forced to turn to the last person she could ever have imagined for help in the matter and the question becomes why would someone want to harm her?
And why is this Slytherin, someone she should loathe as she once did, making her feel things and say things that she could never have imagined.
