After the war, Draco Malfoy's war crimes land him a fitting punishment: wand confiscated and banished from the Wizarding world to live as a Muggle until his "good behavior" allows the Ministry to deem him non-threatening. He works as a florist, drowning in the sweet smell of flowers to wash himself of the smell of death. After the war, Harry Potter isn't quite sure what his purpose in the Wizarding world is anymore. He throws himself into the Auror Program, because fighting is all he ever knew. He works exhausting hours to escape his mind, for a mind kept busy means forgetting the past. When he is suddenly assigned to monitor Draco Malfoy, he thinks the past is coming back to haunt him. But sometimes, facing the past is the only way to free yourself from it.
