Chapter one: Bend over Backwards

"I can help you get that kind of money." said a voice from behind them. Slowly, Abby and Emily turned to face the voice. It was Lucius Malfoy.

"She doesn't want anything you offer." snarled the dark-haired girl. Her pretty face contoured into a fierce expression. Lucius didn't even flinch.

"Heel, Doggett." He drawled, stepping towards the two girls. Abby looked ready to hex him. Emily placed a cautious hand on her friend's shoulder.

"Why would you of all people give me money?" She asked. Lucius chuckled.

"Who said anything about giving? Think of me as a bank. Doggett, leave us for a moment won't you? Thanks." He wrapped his arm around the blonde and steered her away from the Great hall. Abby sputtered in anger, but grudgingly stayed after a look from her friend.

" As I was saying, I lend you money and you pay me back in return." He purred. Emily moved her head back in shock.

"B-But you clearly know of my father's predicament. I can't possibly pay you back that much money. It'll take me years!" She cried. Lucius chuckled and tuck a loose strand of hair behind her ear.

"I didn't mean that kind of payment." He whispered. The blonde broke away from his hold. They were alone in an abandon corridor. She turned to stare at him.

"I don't do prostitution, Mr. Malfoy. The Rosenbergs' aren't that far down the gutter for me to let go of my dignity."

Lucius smirked and closed the distance between them. She was cornered.

"That wasn't what I was offering, but what a pity." He drawled, letting his eyes travel down her body. Emily shivered and wrapped her robes tighter around her. His amusement quickly faded as he stepped back, a haughty expression in place.

"Miss Rosenberg, I offer to lend you ten million galleons in exchange for one small favor." He said formally. "I want to know Remus Lupin's secret."

Emily stared up at him.

"That's it?"

Lucius smirked.

"That's it. I'll give you three months. That should be sufficient." He turned and began to walk away.

"Wait! How will I know you'll keep part of your bargain?" She asked. The blond man turned to face her. He slipped a hand in his robe and took out a purple pouch. With a flick of his wrist, it landed snugly in Emily's hand.

"That's five million. You'll get the rest when you find out Lupin's secret." He said and with that he walked away.


A/N: It's been a very long time since I've tried writing a full fleshed out story and I've failed a couple of times ( Some of you might remember Forgotten Memories and the one that's currently on a long hiatus, Exceeding Expectations.) ,but I think the reason why I've never finished was because I was never motivated enough nor did I have the time. I still don't have time,but I've learned a couple of tricks from my English teacher that should push me along. I'm currently working on a Greek Mythology fic that I hope some of you will be interested in checking out. I haven't decided on a name yet,but I think I'll put up a poll to have you help me decide. Thank you for taking the time to read this and please leave a review on your thoughts on this story so far.
