It's an old spell and an older oath, and Draco Malfoy would have laughed them off were he not in his present situation. Things being as they are, however, being married to Ginny Weasley might just be the answer to his problems. Pre-HBP.

There are two things that were frequently mentioned in the reviews that I want to clear up. First, Ginny did remove the oath, not wanting Draco to be bound to pay her as the oath had stated, at the beginning of chapter nineteen, so that's why he could kiss her at the end of chapter twenty. Second, the uprising in France was never meant to be a war- it was more of a skirmish that was quickly ended by the Aurors, which was why I glossed over it so quickly.

And to Glennis McGregor, if you're reading this, in answer to your question of how I came up with that name, I don't really remember. I picked itseveral years ago when I started this story, and I couldn't tell you where I heard it. How funny that mine is the only other use of the name! I'll just tell people I named the character after you.

This is it, guys, the very end. Thanks for all your support this last year and a half. I hope you enjoy.
