Curse-Bound |Tom Riddle|
On the night of his birth, Arden Bunker was blessed with a gift by his mother, the gift of obedience, in hopes that it would protect her son and make him do the right thing even when she was no longer around. However, since that fateful moment, Arden has hardly been in control of any of his actions. When his mother dies, Arden is orphaned at the age of ten. It doesn't take long for the children to take notice of the gift but eventually, the adults in charge do as well, turning his gift into a curse.
Among the children who take notice, is Tom Marvolo Riddle. Fascinated by the boy's obedience, Tom quickly decides that only he should be the one to control Arden. In return for his obedience, Tom offers protection to him. At first, Arden doesn't seem the harm in all of it, glad to have made a friend finally.
One day changes everything for the two when a man by the name of Albus Dumbledore comes to speak with the two of them. Revealing Tom and Arden to be wizards, and that they would start their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Arden is beyond thrilled to attend but when they arrive, Tom's possessive nature becomes more and more prominent.
Soon, Arden's protector becomes his master.
