Chapter Twenty Two

Start from the beginning

"What? Potter hurt you. More reason for me to hate him."

You sighed and shook your head.

This was taking longer than you expected.

Where were they?

Then Harry was back.

Both Harry and Cedric!

You yelled in joy and clapped. Draco clapped too just to make you happy.

Then you noticed Harry was crying. Cedric wasn't moving.

Fluer screamed.

Everyone stood silent.

Cedric's dad came rushing and when he got to Cedric he was yelling and crying.

Your eyes became watery. This was just too sad.

Draco stood up, shocked. Then he looked at you.

"Why are you crying, love?" He asked.

"...that night, when the d-deatheaters attacked... and you left.. he saved me."

"I didn't leave, my father took me away." Draco said, getting tense.

"Draco, you don't have to get tense."

He grabbed your hand and took you out of there to a more secluded area.

"Draco, your hurting my hand.." you said.

He let you go. "I have every right to be tense! You don't think I wanted to save you!?"

You kept calm. "Draco, at the time I had the impression that you didn't care-"

"Well it's wrong to make assumptions, (y/n)!" Draco yelled.

"Draco, please-"

"You think I'm a coward!"

"Stop twisting my words Draco! That's not what I said!"

"Whatever!" Draco started to walk away.

"Draco! I lost a best friend! Please..I don't want to lose you too.." you said, you bottom lip quivering.

Draco stopped and looked back at you.

He relaxed his face and rushed to you. He hugged you tightly. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry I overreacted. It's my fault. I'm so sorry. I need to control my temper because I don't want to lose you either.."

He pulled away alittle to see your face. He kissed you passionately.

He backed you up against a wall and kissed you more roughly, occaisionally biting your lip.

You messed up his hair big time and he laughed when you kissed his neck.

"Why are you laughing?" You asked.

"That tickles.." he said.

"You're ticklish?" You asked.


"Oh my gosh, you are!" You laughed.

"No. No no no no no!"

You started to tickle him on his neck and sides and he cowered away, laughing and telling you to stop.

When you stopped you just hugged him. He rested his head on top of yours.

"I love you, (y/n). Never doubt that."


The last day at Hogwarts, Dumbledore gathered all the students in the Great Hall. Draco held your hand as he always does.

Dumbledore sat on his chair and had a moment of silence before he spoke.

"Today we acknowledge a really terrible loss. Cedric Diggory was, as you all know, acceptionally hardworking, infinitely fair minded, and most importantly a fierce, fierce friend. Now, I think therefore you have the right to know exactly how he died. You see, Cedric Diggory was murdered by Lord Voldemort. The Ministry of Magic does not wish me to tell you this, but not to do so , I think, would be an insult to his memory. Now, the pain we all feel of this dreadful loss reminds me, reminds us, while we may come from different places and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one. In light of recent events, the bonds of friendship we made this year are more important than ever. Remember that. Cedric Diggory will not have died in vain. You remember that. Now we celebrate a boy who was kind and honest and brave and true... right to the very end.."


As you were walking out with all your luggage, on your way to meet Draco on the train.

"(Y/n). Can we talk?"

You turned around.


"I wanted to apologize. I..I seen the way that Malfoy looks at you and he really does love you. I'm sorry. Are..are we still friends?" He asked.

You took a moment before you nodded.

Harry smiled.

Draco came. "Hello, darling. Do we have a problem here?"

You shook you're head. "No, everything is okay." You squeezes his hand.

"Alright. Why don't you go wait in the train. I'll be right there." Draco said.

You nodded and said bye to Harry.

When you were gone, Harry looked Draco up and down.

"Have a problem, Potter?"

"Just one thing. Take care of her." Harry said.

"With my life. I won't let her go the way you did."

Harry nodded. "You better not."

They then parted ways.

Draco sat with you on the train and held you close to him.

Never. Never.

Never will he let you go.
