I rubbed my eyes sleepily as I stumbled into the Great Hall the next morning. I was utterly exhausted and my brain felt like it had been torn open and examined by a neurosurgeon. It was strange since Tom had managed to convince me to sleep earlier than I normally did, but I was too tired to think much about it.
My steps froze as my blue eyes met a startling pair of green ones. I willed my feet to move and raced over to where Draco sat at the Slytherin table. I heard a number of gasps from all the tables as they watched me sit down with the Slytherin's for the first time ever. I took no notice and began to fill my plate with food.
Out of the corner of my periphery, I saw Draco take in my puffy red eyes and sleepy demeanor. "You alright, Kat? You don't look very well!" He said worriedly as he paused with his fork in mid air.
"Yeah, nothing a good night's sleep can't cure!" I said as cheerfully as I could muster. We looked up as someone coughed loudly from behind us. I dropped my spoon in shock. Of all the people in the Great Hall, it HAD to be Harry that was standing right behind me.
"Hey, Kat! Um...I was...I was wondering if I could talk to you for a second? I'm so sorry I haven't been there for you lately! Please...can you give me a chance to explain?" He looked at me and I struggled not to cave in as I stared at his worry-filled eyes. He looked like an adorable lost puppy dog and I couldn't help but feel a tug at my heartstrings. Before I could answer, Draco did it for me.
"You've got some nerve coming over here after what happened yesterday, Potter? You think I'm really going to stand by and watch you hurt her even more?" He said standing up quickly as he glared furiously at my former-best friend.
"Malfoy, I...Merlin, I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I need to talk to you as well. Alone...I'd rather avoid being overheard." I glanced at Harry in confusion. What could he possibly have to say to Draco?
"What, scared of everyone watching me take the micky out of you?" My head whipped back in forth from Draco to Harry as I waited to see how he would respond.
"Please, Draco, its important." We both looked at him in shock; never dreaming we'd ever hear Harry say something like that to him.
"Um...okay...I guess?" Draco said glancing down at me to get my opinion. I shifted my head to the right a little to let him know that he had my permission. To be honest, I was curious to know what Harry could possibly want with Draco and I was counting on getting Draco to spill afterwards.
The two of them left the room and I went back to eating my bowl of cereal. I was halfway done when I watched Draco come back in and return to his seat next to me.
"I think you should go talk to Potter." He whispered in my ear as he picked up his fork and started eating again.
"Really? Why the sudden change of heart!"
"You guys clearly have unfinished business - and as much as I don't like the idea of you hanging around him again, I can tell you miss him like crazy - if it makes you happy, than I'll do my best to deal with it. Just don't expect me to be all chummy with him!"
Wow. What in the world had the two of them talked about in order for Draco to say that? It sounded almost like they had come to some sort of truce! I never thought I'd see the day!
"He's waiting outside in the entrance hall for you, go! I'll bring your bag with me to class so you two can have a little extra time." He all but shoved me out of my seat and nudged me gently, but forcibly, towards to doorway. I grumbled out a 'thank you' as I slowly started walking towards where Harry waited.
