Lockhart.

He was so full of himself. You and the boys in class made a face when he presented himself as your new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher.

The rest of the girls sighed.

You sat next to Hermionie.

As she sighed, you looked at her with disbelief. Not that she noticed.

Lockhart started to rant on about his Best Smile award on Witch Weekly. You rolled your eyes.

As you were starting to doze off, he started talking about how we might be facing our worst fears at the moment.

You sat up, looking at the covered cage.

"Just know, as long as I am here, no harm can come upon you. I must ask you not to scream. It might provoke them!"

Then he uncovered the cage, revealing some pixies.

The class burst out laughing.

You shook your head as you laughed.

Was this guy for real?

Then the worst happened.

Lockhart released the pixies and they started to cause mischief.

You screamed as three pixies started to pull your hair, causing you to try and swipe them away.

You lost your balance and fell, knocking a student down with you.

Draco.

He scrambled up and looked down at you.

The pixies were laughing and pulling your hair.

Draco turned to go but he stopped midstep.

"Bloody hell." He mumbled.

He got a book off a desk and hit the pixies with it.

After a minute he helped you up and ran out with you, holding your hand.

When you were out in the hall, away from the chaos, the rest of the class was there.

But you didn't see Harry, Ron, Hermionie, or Neville.

You looked at Draco, who still held your hand.

When he realized it too, he let your hand go.

"Thank you.." you said.

He didn't make eye contact with you.

"I had to do it. Daniel knows we have the same class. He would have killed me."

You were confused. "You don't even talk to Daniel."

Draco looked at you, his face blank.

"Yes I do. We're on the same team."

"What do you mean?"

"I mean I am the new Slytherin Seeker. And Daniel told me to bring you to our practice this afternoon."

~~~~~~~~

You waited for the Slytherin Quidditch team to change into their outfits.

You knew they were done when Daniel sneaked up on you from behind and wraps his arms around you, planting a kiss on your cheek.

Draco turned away.

"Shall we go?" Daniel said.

Everyone agreed and followed Flint to the courtyard, where you spotted the Gryffindor Quidditch Team.

"What are you doing here?" asked Wood.

"Relax, Wood. We got a note."

Flint handed Wood the note.

Apparently, it was from Snape allowing the Slytherin Team to have practice in order to train their new Seeker.

"You have a new Seeker? Who?"

Malfoy stepped forward.

You noticed that Hermionie and Ron were there as well.

"Malfoy?" Harry just couldn't believe it.

"That's not all that's new this year." Draco said, and all of the team showed off their new brooms. You looked at Daniel with disapproval. He shrugged in return.

"Those are Nimbus 2001's! How did you get those!?" marveled Ron.

"A gift from Draco's father." Flint said.

"See? Unlike some, my father can afford the best." Draco said.

Ugh. Always playing the money card.

Hermionie stepped forward.

"At least no one on the Gryffindor Team had to buy their way in. They got in on pure talent."

Draco sneered at her. "How dare you talk to me? You filthy little mudblood."

You stepped forward but Daniel held you back.

Ron stepped forward. "You'll pay for that one Malfoy. Eat slugs!"

Ron attempted to curse Draco, but since his wand was broken he cursed himself.

You looked away when Ron threw up his first slug.

The Slytherin Team laughed, including Daniel.

Harry, Hermionie, and Ron left to Hagrid's.

You looked at Daniel and he stopped laughing.

You shook your head at him and walked away, bumping Draco purposely.
