Prompt: 'I'd worked that much out for myself.' - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, J K Rowling

An opaque chunk

of rock, clasped in
greedy metal fingers,
symbolic of drama
and a sizeable new dent

Oh, and love.

"We're engaged!" she purrs,
glee and tawdry triumph
smeared across her face,
but I'd already worked that much
out for myself.
