Across the ballroom of Rosier Hall, Regulus laughed, throwing his head back. His longish raven hair swung into place, but he smoothed it anyway. He stole a glance at me as Galicia dominated the young Death Eaters with the tale of her ridiculous Muggle encounter.

"Have you seen the reindeer, Bliss?"

I turned toward my old admirer. "Reindeer are a myth."

"Come, I'll show you."

Since Regulus was hanging on that icy bint's every word, I followed Rabastan to the doors adorned with lush greenery and luminous holly berries.

Rabastan tapped the glass. "There." Several large beasts were tethered in the frosty garden.

"Who said they were reindeer?" I asked, pressing my nose to the cool glazing.

"They can fly."

"I'd like to see it."

Rabastan smirked, touching my arm. "Let's go--"

"To Regulus."

Rabastan's eyes narrowed at Regulus. "Bliss and I are going--"

"Nowhere." Regulus nonchalantly twirled his wand.

Swearing under his breath, Rabastan stalked toward his date, Galicia.

Regulus' sweet, crooked smile had nothing to do with besting Rabastan. "Mistletoe, Bliss." Eyes closed, he pressed his lips to mine. The party faded into his intoxicating juniper and bergamot scent. Regulus sighed, gathering me closer to the special place where we fit together like hand to quill.



Regulus showed me the reindeer when we flew bareback across the countryside, landing at a crumbling fortress. While the beasts feasted on overgrowth, he led me up a spiral stairway to the watchtower.

Exhilarated, I pushed off my cloak. "What's the name of these ruins?"

"Ours." Regulus kissed my forehead then flicked his wand, summoning a picnic hamper. Another charm opened the basket and spread a woollen cover, adding pillows, throws, and candles. "Almost ready," he said with a wink, casting Cushioning and Warming Charms.

Under the stars, we reclined against the pillows, sipping mulled cider and smiling at each other. It was the perfect setting for a seduction--my first.

Taking his goblet, I firmly pushed my surprised wizard onto his back. Regulus grinned while I unbuttoned his crisp white shirt, left on but open to cover the Mark. We would forget about all that tonight.

I kissed his lips, neck, chest, and stomach, while smoothly shifting my softness against his hardness, just like heroines in my romance novels. Regulus liked it. Suppressing nervous laugher, I unfastened his trousers, pushing them down. He eagerly kicked them off. His breathing was rapid; my heart pounded. I stripped away his pants, seeing him for the first time. I gulped.

Gathering my courage, I kissed him all around, then the tip. He shuddered as I ran my tongue over, finally sliding it into my mouth. I wasn't sure what else to do, but Regulus' hands in my hair gently encouraged me. I did my best, coughing and spitting when it was over.

His sexy, crooked grin was well worth the effort, and he showered me with loving kisses.

"Happy New Year, Regulus."

"A perfect, blissful start," he murmured, removing my silk blouse.




Author's Notes: Perfect Bliss is set one year after The Disposition Discerner, a story I wrote for Challenge Nineteen. Regulus and Bliss are eighteen in this story. Thank you, Miss Blane, for your Proof Witchery.

I stripped away his pants, seeing him for the first time. I gulped.

Oh, to have use of those spells in RL to make winter trysts more comfortable. ;) This was perfect to read on a cold day--no need to turn the heater on. Love Bliss trying to figure out what to do with reference to romance novels. *giggles*

*grins* Excellent story, as usual! I love, love your Regulus and your Bliss, and of course they're wonderful together!

*laughs at Rabastan* Foiled!

Rabastan knew not to duel with clever Regulus for many reasons. I was proud of them for keeping it civil. Things could have escalated.

I'm so happy to know you like this version of Regulus and my Bliss.

Thanks for reading!

Off to find more fic about Regulus. I can’t seem to get enough of him lately.

I gulped. I love the implication.

You meld sexy and romantic so very well. I continue to adore this pairing.

The gulp was essential to her initiation, I believe. *giggles* Poor Bliss, but she pulled it off.

Thanks for the lovely compliment and for reading!

Awkward and determined is definitely what Bliss was, and I think Regulus was grateful for it! lol

Well, that's one way of keeping warm... *grins* A surprisingly tender tale of love among DEs.

Who said young DEs can't have a moment of tenderness, right? :)

Thanks for reading!

That was delightful! I loved determined Bliss, and the reference to romance novels was adorably funny.

*grins* Bliss had to get her information somewhere, so why not from The Tales of the Seducing Sorceress?. ;D
