With pinned up spiral curls and a jeweled silver choker, Lumina is stunning. Her dress is hugging every curve and just enough of her skin is exposed to tease. She’s about a corridor away from making it out of the dungeons when she realizes a couple boys a little ways behind her are talking about her. Now, normally this wouldn’t phase Lumina but she just heard Draco’s name.
“Oye, Draco. Who’s that girl in front of us? I don’t recognize her.” A gruff voice inquires.
“How am I supposed to know, Flint? All I see is her back…not that I mind the view.” Malfoy responds approvingly. Lumina can almost picture his head bent to the side.
Such a pig! And Flint…oh Marcus Flint! The troll looking one I believe….
“You’ve shagged more than half the girls in Slytherin, you usually recognize their backs before their faces, mate.” The fact there was admiration in Flint’s voice made Lumina want to scream.
“Ha, not to mention that threesome with those Ravenclaw girls. Oh yeah, and that one Hufflepuff…oh bugger, what was her name? Well whoever, she was a naughty little thing.” Boastful and perverted as ever, the ‘Sex God of Slytherin’ reputation Lumina kept hearing about the past two years must have been true.
Thoroughly disgusted and angered, she doesn’t want to wait any longer to make her presence known. One look into her eyes and she was positive Malfoy would stop dead in his tracks. Even with the lighting in these dungeons, he would know her face. She was hoping her voice wouldn’t give her away before she turned around.
“You do know I can hear every word of your conversation? These dungeons have an echo.” She says, clearly repulsed.
“Good, I don’t have to waste my breath asking who you are then, love.” Only Draco could make such a rude thing to say sound attractive. At the word ‘love’ Lumina felt a slight flutter in her gut, it had been such a long time since she heard him speak like that and she mentally kicked herself for letting it affect her that way.
“Oh, but you already know who I am Dray.” She whispers seductively while stopping in place.
Draco stopped in his place too.
Dray!? The only person who ever called me that was…no, it can’t be her! It’s been two years, she wouldn’t have the audacity to show her face now and I would recognize her. She doesn’t even sound anything like her…way too confident. He thinks in an attempt to reassure himself while the beat of his heart starts to quicken ever so slightly.
“Very funny, it’s no surprise you’ve heard of me but if I’d seen a bum like that before, I’m positive I would remember.” Draco says in an attempt to make humor out of the situation but Lumina could pick up on the nervousness in his words.
She takes a deep breath.
Moment of truth, be sure to look him directly in the eye.
In one graceful spin, she’s face to face with a pair of stunned ice blue eyes embedded on a perfect porcelain face. Platinum blonde hair hung loosely in front of his eyes and Lumina had the sudden urge to smooth it over with her fingers. He was taller than she remembered and the musculature of his frame was obvious through his suit. But she tried not to linger on his appearance too much.
“Bon soir, Malfoy. Fancy meeting you here.” She says through a Malfoy worthy smirk.
Draco’s heart is caught in his throat, a hundred thoughts race across his mind and he can’t help but stare, mouth agape, at the dazzling creature in front of him.
I don’t know what’s more shocking, the fact that she’s standing in front of me right now in HOGWARTS or that she’s bloody gorgeous! When did she get breasts!? She never had breasts! But dear merlin, this is Lumina…my Lumi…
“Bloody hell Lumi! It is you! W-what happened to you!? You don’t even look like yourself and how are you here right now!?” is all Malfoy blurts out without thinking clearly, without recalling the fact they haven’t spoken a word to each other in the past two years.
“Don’t be rude mate, introduce me to Miss Lumi.” Flint says seriously, a little too serious for Lumina’s liking.
Quite strongly she retorts, “My name is Lumina! Lumi’s been dead for some time now, but you know all about that, don’t you Malfoy?” and with that she whips her body around, en route to the ball.
