Extract:

When he reached the bottom, he realised this was where she'd been all along.

It was a cluttered room, vaguely reminiscent of the Room of Requirement. It was resplendent with red and gold, cushions and curtains and tapestries and scatter rugs and throws. Things were piled high, a hotch-potch of things that were important to her. Her robes from when she took the Mark. The dress she'd worn the first time they danced. Her old owl, Drake, the only one she'd really loved, stuffed and posed on a perch. A corsage he'd given her when he'd courted her. Parchments, love letters long forgotten, carefully crafted ones he'd written in hopes of winning her hand. A million things, most of them familiar, most of them about them. Some were theatre from a time when she'd been just a prize for him, but most were more than that.

In the middle of it all, she sat in an armchair, gazing at him with big, watchful eyes.

It dawned on him that here, in her mind, they were alone. Unless you counted the night she was half out of her mind with agony – and he didn't – it was for the very first time.

He strode towards her. Stooped down before her and took her face between his palms.

She covered his hands with her own, but shook her head. "Don't," she whispered. "Please don't."

"You don't want me to?" he insisted. He knew that she did.

Her gaze slid sideways, away from him. "It isn't a matter of wanting. It's a matter of me having a whole other life."

"Dead things behind glass in a sterile marble room?" he demanded. "That's not life." He glanced around the richly textured room. "This is life. Can't you see the difference? Can't you feel it?"
