Summary: Modern!AU. Rowena is spurned.
Rowena liked to believe she was glamorous and not understated. She wasn't sure, though.
She raised her hand to her eye level and stared at the crescent moon shaped nick on her finger.
A hand grabbed her hand, and that pulled her attention away from the blemish and to captivating blue eyes of the man that made her stomach flutter. "Salazar," she breathed.
Salazar smiled seductively, and for the first time in a very long while, she actually felt glamorous. She felt sexy and desirable. And only Salazar had been able to make her feel like that.
And she blamed that feeling on her brash actions.
She leaned forward and pressed her lips against his. Thankfully, he eagerly returned the kiss. And when she fell into bed with him —something she never did on the first date—she didn't have any regrets.
The regrets didn't come until the next morning, when she woke up in a bed by herself. She felt behind her and the sheets were cold, indicating her partner had vacated a good long while ago.
She frowned but tried to brush away the nagging worry.
When she saw him later that day, she knew that worry had been for a reason. He acted like nothing happened, and Rowena realized the horrible truth. The night of passionate lovemaking met more to her than him. To Salazar, Rowena had simply been a bit of fun. A one night stand.
It hurt, but she turned her pain into anger. Salazar Slytherin would pay!
