Chasing Butterflies {A Draco Malfoy Love Story}

Dedicated to

Well... I must admit, this is my first attempt at a Draco Malfoy love story. I tried to keep him as close as I possibly could to the real him without making him too much like him, if you know what I mean. After writing The Adventures of a Death Eater, I realized that I hadn't really had Malfoy in there enough to my liking. No, the stories aren't related in anyway, albeit a few of the same characters. This story, believe it or not, all came in a dream to me. =)

I do not own Draco Malfoy, or any of the other Harry Potter characters or locations. Those all belong to the amazing J.K. Rowling. I only own a few of these characters, and you'll recognize which those are without my telling.

Enough of my blabbing, and here's the first chapter.... Oh. And the song quotes in the beginning usually match up somehow with the chapter. Music inspires me, and I often use it when I write. =)


“I guess I’m dreaming again…” –Crushcrushcrush, Paramore

            Audrey strode down the stairs towards her dormitory. It was the start of her seventh year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. To be honest, she was shocked she made it back to the school for her final year. Her life had been a whirlwind of chaos for some time now; she was hoping Hogwarts would provide some kind of normalcy.

            With Lord Voldemort taking over the Ministry of Magic, life at Hogwarts this year was bound to be a lot different. The former head of her house had been promoted to Headmaster. Audrey was unsure of what other changes laid ahead for Hogwarts. She was sure Severus Snape had a whole sheet full of new rules and regulations for them, none of which would probably be any good.

            She sat down on the black leather couch in the Slytherin common room, and glanced around the dark room. It seemed quieter, emptier than before. A lot of students weren’t coming back- Audrey couldn’t say she blamed them. Things had gone downhill in the past few years. Audrey sat her trunk down with a thud. She did not bother to unpack; she had no reason to. The night was done- the Great Feast had ended along with the annual sorting. Audrey remembered the day seven years ago when she had been sorted into Slytherin. All she wanted to do was get a good night’s sleep to prepare her for the next day’s classes.

            The first few days had passed without incident; all of her classes went by like normal. Audrey had, however, taken notice to the absence of the school’s most notorious trio- Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger- not to mention her Quidditch captain, Draco Malfoy. Audrey had decided to spend that night with her best friend Krystie down at the lake. Krystie was a Ravenclaw, so the two did not always get to communicate.

            “How have your first few days been?” the blonde girl asked.

            Audrey shrugged. “Boring and quiet. This year’s going to be that way; I can just tell. Normally by now I’ve started Quidditch practice.”

            Krystie seemed puzzled by that remark. “Why haven’t you?”

            “Malfoy isn’t here,” Audrey seemed almost disappointed by that. “I don’t know where he is. It kind of worries me.”

            Krystie raised an eyebrow. “Why? He’s so arrogant and rude. It’s quieter without him here. Seriously, just enjoy the peace while you can.”

            The brunette frowned. “It’s not the point. He is our captain. We don’t have another seeker like him; if we find someone else we don’t stand a chance.”
