The moment I heard Blaise say that he and Eva are engaged, my heart beat stopped cold. I was in undeniable shock. I couldn’t move, I could barely even think. I suspected Blaise fancied her and that Eva and I would have trouble in our relationship. But I just assumed it would be her parents disapproval of me; being a half-blood and all. Never would I have believed she was engaged. Why didn’t she tell me? She certainly had several opportunities she could.
I was snapped out of my shock when I heard doors slam. I finally was able to understand what I was seeing; Eva with her thinking expression. I twitched a little and stretched my hands from the clenched fist from earlier.
“Seamus?” Eva asked nudging me with her knee. I looked up at her, her beautiful face, and her beautiful blue eyes. “I am so sorry. I had- no, have- no idea what he was talking about. He probably is just saying rubbish from worrying about me. This is the first I have heard of any engagement.” She blurted.
“How could you be engaged if you knew nothing about this?” I asked her.
“It’s not possible. An engagement involves two people agreeing to marry. I don’t think I really am engaged.” She replied
“Unless it was arranged behind your back.” I muttered.
She gasped and started thrashing around. “How could it be arranged behind my back? That is so rude, inconsiderate, and selfish. I knew my parents weren’t always the best, but I never thought they would do anything like this. That would explain my vision, I would never randomly shout at Mum with no reason.” She stated obviously forgetting I was here.
“Eva, relax, if you don’t Madame Pompfrey will reprimand you about not resting.” She calmed down a tad. “Now if you’ll excuse me I best be off.” I said before getting up out of my chair.
“You’re leaving?” She asked disappointed.
“Yea, I got my things to pack. Don’t believe the arranged marriage theory, it is a far off suggestion. Don’t read too much into events or circumstances.” I said then left the Hospital Wing.
I didn’t want to leave her, but I couldn’t stay in the room alone with her knowing every second I’m with her I fall more in love with her. I can’t risk putting myself in anything if I ended up with the rotten end of the stick. Besides, what are the possibilities of her actually being arranged to marry Blaise? I mean hardly anyone has arranged marriages anymore, it’s not even that common among purebloods. Eva is trouble, danger, and heartbreak waiting ot happen, I can’t affiliate with her and have my heart at risk of being broken. I must disconnect myself from anything and everything involving Eva Malfoy. Hopefully my heart doesn’t disagree with my head on this and chase after her anyways.
I was sitting on the bed dumbstruck. Seamus just left me for no reason he elaborated on. I just fell for him again, actually harder than before, and he leaves when I need him. I was willing to become a Death Eater, betray the darkest wizard in history for reassurance of his safety. I was going to give up all emotions to be a good Death Eater so that when Voldemort is defeated, we would, or I hoped, be together.
Soon Madame Pompfrey came in to check on me, seeing as I was awake and alert, she released me. After I was dressed and about to leave the Hospital Wing, Madame Pompfrey called me.
“Miss Malfoy, before you go the Headmaster would like a word with you.” She said.
“Alright, anything else?” I asked grabbing my bag ready to leave.
“Just rest up and remember he loves sherbet lemon.” She ordered then dismissed me.
I left the infirmary and made my way to Professor Dumbledore’s office. Once reaching the entrance statue to his office, I repeated the password then walked up the steps to his office. After reaching the door, I knocked quietly on it. He opened it for me then welcomed me in.
“Ahhh, Miss Malfoy. It is a pleasure seeing you up and well.” I nodded wondering the real reason I’m here. “Well take a seat. I assume you want an explanation for how you ended up in the Hospital Wing?”
“That would be helpful sir.” I replied quietly.
“Well it appears that something took over your sight after you saw Voldemort and Harry, correct?” I nodded still puzzled as to how he always knows these things. “Well, only you were taken over. Miss Granger admitted to taking action by knocking you out since you were standing in the middle of the discord practically blind and unresponsive.”
