After the feast, all four of the Malfoys stood in the Main hall saying their good-byes. The students filing out of the Great Hall stared as they passed.

"Now, Damion, Draco, We'll see you both in a few weeks for Christmas." Narcissa brushed Damion's hair out of his eyes and fixed Draco's already perfect collar.

"Yes, Mother."

"Yes, Mum."

"Both of you try to stay out of trouble. I don't want to get any letters from your teachers saying that your causing trouble." Lucius stated standing tall, looking down on his two sons.

"Yes, sir" The Twins stated together.

There was a set of 'Crack's announcing Dobby and Tink's arrival.

"Master Damion's trunk is being in his new dorm. We made sure that it was the bed near the wall, for the Young Master, next to his brother." Tink stated happily.

"Thank you Tink, Dobby." Damion smiled at the elf.

Share my room for the Holidays? Draco asked looking at Damion.

You'd be willing to 'share'? With 'Me'? Damion asked in surprise. It wasn't like Draco to share anything.

Why not? We did share a crib. For a week anyway. Damion grinned and nodded slightly.

"All right boys. We'll see you Christmas. Come Narcissa, the boys need to get to bed." Lucius started to turn toward the doors but was stopped by Damion wrapping his arms around him.

"Thanks, Dad. See you in a few weeks." Damion let go. He gave his Mum another hug and a kiss and made for the stares toward the dungeons and waited for Draco.

The boys made their way down to the Slytherin common room each lost in their own thoughts. When they came to the stone snake protruding from the wall Damion snapped his fingers in front of Draco's face to pull him from his thoughts.

Draco blinked in surprise, "What? Oh. Arx Serpents." He led the way into the common room. The entire Slytherin house was sitting there waiting for them. Blaise, Pansy, Crabbe, and Goyle stepped forward.

"So it's true?" Pansy looked from one to the other.

"Your really Twins?" Blaise looked interested at the news. She was Draco's best friend so this news really caught her off guard.

"Yet, now you realize this is gonna be a big change?" Blaise finished his sentence.

"Well... Yeah." Draco looked at the floor. He was feeling a bit odd.

"When did this come on? I mean you seamed perfectly fitted with him when we saw you at dinner." Pansy looked at him confused.

"I understand, believe me. Your parents are expecting a lot of you. I wouldn't have taken it so calmly if it had been me." Pansy contributed.

"Oh, go stuff yourself Pans. Draco isn't as heartless as you are. He just needs time to adjust to Damion." Blaise retorted.

Damion sat on his bed in the Slytherin boy's dorm thinking about how his life had changed. Draco went from his worst enemy to his Twin brother in less then 24 hours. It was a bit too much for him. He felt his heart swell at the thought that he had parents that loved him. Then there was Draco.

He enjoyed his brother's company, yet... They were different. Draco seemed so stiff, so formal. It didn't seem normal. He felt odd, he knew he'd startled his brother by hugging their father, yet, it had felt right to him and Lucius hadn't objected.

Damion smiled to himself as he changed into his favorite green PJs and crawled into bed. Just as he was pulling the covers over himself Draco entered the room. Draco looked at him in surprise.

"Not asleep yet?"

"G'Night, Dra. See you in the morning, brother." Damion muttered as he started to drift off.

Draco blinked in surprise, but smiled, "Sleep tight, Dami. See you at Breakfast." He closed his eyes and fell asleep facing his brother. While they slept both boys curled up as though to wrap around each other, and probably would have, had they been in the same bed. For the first time in 15 years, both boys slept soundly.

The next morning Draco shook Damion awake for breakfast, "Damion! Get up, it's time for breakfast."

"Ready to go yet?" Draco asked as he ran the comb through his hair one last time before setting it down and picking up his school bag from off his trunk.

They all entered the Hall and made their way toward the Slytherin table. Damion stopped when he spotted Ron and Hermione sitting with Ginny, Neville, Seamus, and Dean at the Gryffindor table.

Dami? Draco looked at his brother.

"Hey guys." He smiled at his friends. They all turned to look at him but the only ones who looked pleased to see him were Hermione and Ginny.

"Well, if it isn't the long lost Malfoy Twin." Seamus said harshly.

"Come to mock us lowly Gryffindors?" Dean added glaring.

"What are you guys on about? All I said was 'Hey'." Damion looked at them in confusion, what had he done this time.

"Why didn't you tell us you were a Malfoy? You lied to us, you Slytherin Snake!" Ron glared at his once best friend.

"Ron!" Hermione snapped. Ginny glared at her brother.

"If you must know, 'Ron'. I just found out last night. Now if you excuse me, I get the feeling I'm not wanted here. Suddenly, I don't feel like breakfast." Damion turned away and headed for the Great Hall doors.

"Damion?" Draco called, standing up from the Slytherin table.

"Where's he going? He looked upset." Blaise asked standing next to Draco.

Draco felt a wave of protectiveness wash over him at the thought of his twin feeling upset, "I don't know, but I'm going to find out." He made his way to the Gryffindor table, Blaise following. The whole hall was watching to see what Draco would do.

"What the hell did you say to my brother, Weasley?" Draco demanded.

"Well, 'Ferret', I suppose the sneaking, lying Snake was upset that we cut him off before he could have his fun insulting us." Ron sneered at Draco.

Draco saw red. He knew Damion wasn't like that. 'He' was the one that insulted people. 'He' was the one they had a right to despise. His brother had never done anything more then be friends with the worthless idiots! He was furious.

Draco pulled his wand and pointed it at Ron's throat, "I'm afraid, Weasel, that your confusing my brother with me. I'm the one who enjoys tormenting your worthless hyde. Damion was your 'friend', though I have No idea why he would want to be. Word of advice. Stay away from him. If I hear you've said one cruel word to him, 'I'll' be the one your dealing with." He glared at Ron making certain he understood that he meant every word.

"No, Ron. You'd deserve anything he gave you. How could you be so cruel to Har-" she glanced at Draco, "Excuse me, Damion! He was your best friend! Ronald Weasley you are an idiot!" With that she stood and left the Great Hall, Ginny on her heals throwing dirty looks at her brother.

Draco smirked in surprise, "Well, look at that, even your girlfriend agrees with me. Hell has frozen over. Remember what I said, Weasel." He put his wand away and went off in search of his brother. Blaise went back to the Slytherins to tell them what happened. When she finished the entire table was glaring at the three boys.

Ron, Seamus, and Dean gulped and grabbing their bags, fled the Great Hall under the piercing looks from the Slytherins and a few Ravenclaws.
