An Interesting Anniversary
“A question I forgot to ask the both of you,” Lucius started to say as they walked across the grounds towards Malfoy manor. “How many books did you get through exactly…?”
“Well… We estimated that you had hidden more than half the books in there, around two hundred-three hundred books in total…” Melantha began, looking at her scroll. Lucius looked down as well and saw some calculations… interesting.
“Anyway we got through around half of the books left, which we estimated to be a total of one hundred and thirty. If you divide the 65 remaining books by seven, you get nine-point-two-eight, then half that… and you get the result that Vitas and I got through around 3-4 books each per day. Though I admit that we skimmed them… and they weren’t massive books.” She finished looking up at him as she finished talking.
Lucius raised an eyebrow, it seemed that Melantha had the potential for Arithmancy… or Mathematics as the muggles called it.
“Well, that’s rather impressive. You did remember to eat, take care of your hygiene and actually sleep, didn’t you?” He said to them, becoming suspicious of his house-elves loyalty… they probably let the children stay up till half-nine… especially Bubbly, too enthusiastic that one…
They were near the entrance of the Manor now and you could hear Draco running around inside… and Narcissa telling him to stop running and to sit down. Melantha and Vitas were intrigued by what they could hear and for the first time looked up to their new Father, waiting for him to tell them what they should do.
Lucius saw this and stopped mid-stride to talk to them.
“Listen, Draco is not like the children at that Orphanage… he is slightly spoiled I admit and isn’t as mature as you both, but he will accept you as his brother and sister. Narcissa would never do any of the things, say any of the things that the Muggles said to you… it will be fine. Now, stand up straight and walk with me as true Malfoys.” He said to them, before leading them in, feeling pride as he watch them walk with him like they had done it a thousand times.
