"Hey." Draco said as you sat down for Transfiguration. This was the first time you've spoken since that night, due to the fact that you didn't have Potions that morning.
"Hey." you said, taking out your notes. You began writing the rest of the notes that were on the board. Draco didn't seem too interested in class.
"There's a common room party tonight." he whispered.
"Do you want to fail this class?" you asked, not looking at him.
"I probably will anyway. Transfiguration isn't really my thing."
"I've noticed." you said, a small smile on your lips.
"Well thanks for helping me." he said sarcastically.
"You should've asked." you said, finally looking at him. He was smiling softly at you. You returned it and looked back to the board. He leaned forward so that you could see him as you wrote.
"Will you?" he asked.
"Will I what?"
"What? Why?" he asked.
"Given the circumstances of our relationship at the moment, I hardly think it would be a wise decision on my part." you said, setting down your quill.
"This is strictly business. I swear nothing will happen." he said.
"That worked out well the last time, didn't it? By the way, you still owe me 10 galleons." you said, taking out your book and wand for the spell casting portion of the period.
"Touché." he smirked, and didn't say another word until the end of class.
"So, you're coming?" he asked as you put your stuff away at the end of class.
"Huh?" you asked, busying yourself with your bag.
"To the party?"
"Oh, yeah sure. I have to go." you said distractedly, seeing Tammy waving out you from the door. You exited the classroom with her, making your way to the Great Hall for lunch.
* * * *
"Are you going downstairs?" Kasey asked.
"I dunno." you said, turning a page in your Transfiguration book. Kasey picked it up from the bed and threw it across the room. "Hey!" you whined, getting up to go and get it. She stopped you and grabbed you by the shoulders.
"You can't let Malfoy control you! Where's the Slytherin Princess we love! The one who would never miss a party over a guy?!" she said.
"This has nothing to do with him." you countered.
"Then get ready and get down there!" she finished, leading Tammy out of the girl's dorms. You decided she was right, and took your time getting ready.
Why rush? I'm late anyway.
Nothin' good happens 'til late anyways.
You finished getting dressed, choosing a simple pair of jeans and T-shirt. You didn't have anyone to impress tonight. You went down the stairs and was greeted by blaring music, shouting, and laughter. You took a drink at the table set up in the corner and downed it.
"Slow down sis! It's still early!" Justin said, appearing behind you. He took a drink from the table as you took your second.
"Thanks little brother, but I need it!" you said, taking a huge gulp.
"Why? Draco givin' you a hard time?!" he shouted as someone turned the music up a notch. You tipped the drink back further at the mention of Draco. He got the message.
"Whatever, look! Don't get too hammered! You gotta go to class tomorrow!" you said, resuming your role as big sister. He rolled his eyes and went off into the crowd. You saw Tammy with some random guy dancing, and Kasey was in the corner with Blaise. You rolled your eyes, knowing how that was going to end up.
"So you decided to come!" Draco shouted. You turned around and saw him standing behind you.
"Well it was this or homework!" you shouted back, annoyed at the music. It wasn't even good music, which annoyed you more.
"Oh, and here I thought it was because of me!" he said. You rolled your eyes at his arrogance.
"Well it's been lovely chatting with you." you said, leaving him. You sat on the couch and stared at the fire, ignoring the gaze you felt on you. Suddenly, Adam sat down next to you. You were shocked, since he's been avoiding you ever since he got out of the hospital wing.
"So I just have one question." he said, eyeing you.
"Ok?" you weren't sure what to do in his presence.
"Were you cheating on me?"
"No!" you said quickly. He gave you a look of disbelief. "Adam I swear! Draco was trying I'll admit, but I never did anything with him! And that day in class... I don't know how that happened!"
"You promise?" he asked.
"Promise." you finished. You felt like this unresolved conflict between you and him lifted a weight off your shoulders.
"Great! So we can be friends, I guess?"
"Uh, sure." you said, not really sure that would work out. But for now a quick fix was okay with you.
"Cool. I'm not really feeling this party." he said, setting down his cup.
"I know what you mean."
"Wanna hang out upstairs?" he asked. You didn't know if that was a good idea. He was a little too cool with the situation to your liking. You glanced around and saw Felicia all over Draco, and your insides flared. You didn't want to be at that party.
* * * *
You followed him to the boys dorms, and crashed on his bed for a moment. You opened your eyes to find him going through his trunk. He pulled out some Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans.
"Want some?" he asked, taking out a handful. You nodded and took some. The first one you got was Grass flavor. You spit it out. The second one was chocolate, so you savored it with every last ounce. Suddenly Adam began a coughing/hacking fit as he spit one out.
"What was it?" you asked, rubbing his back.
"You DON'T want to know." he said darkly. You laughed at the look on his face. Suddenly his lips crashed onto yours. You pushed him away.
"What the hell are you doing?!" you shouted.
"C'mon it's a party..." Adam said, grabbing you again. You struggled as he pushed you down. You pulled your arm out of his grip and slapped him hard across the face. He let go of you and you got up quickly. He caught your arm before you could get away.
"Hey! I put up with all of your shit! You owe me! Just calm down and go with it." he said. You couldn't believe him. You tried to hit him again but he caught your hand.
"ADAM, NO!" you shouted as he pushed you against the wall, knocking over a stack of books. He covered your mouth, and you began to panic. You didn't know what to do, when suddenly the solution came to you. You brought your knee up forcefully, right into Adam’s crotch. He shouted, and doubled over, falling to the floor. The door opened and you ran into someone in your hurry to get out of the room, tears forming in your eyes. You felt the person grab you and you let out a scream.
"Hey, it’s just me! What's wrong?" you found yourself being held by Draco. "I heard some stuff going on up here, and I saw you go upstairs a while ago so... are-- you crying?" he asked, looking down at your face.
"H-h-he..." you stuttered, but gave up and buried your head in his chest. You heard Adam begin to move and looked into the room.
"BITCH!" Adam yelled, getting off the ground. Draco stood in front of you.
"YOU FUCKER!" his anger showed, and you knew he was capable of murder right now. You tugged his arm.
"No. Come with me!" you said, not wanting him to get into trouble over you again.
"Shhh... just be with me." you soothed, taking his hand in yours. This seemed to work. He followed you, giving a glare back to Adam, who didn't dare to move. You pulled him into another room, and sat down with him.
"I'm sorry. You shouldn't have to deal with jerks like him." he said, hugging you.
"Yeah... but I don't get it. He wasn't a jerk until after I started dating him." you said, biting your lip.
"Scum." he murmured. You smiled. You began to wonder if Draco would change if you ever said yes to him.
"What?" he asked.
"You're looking at me weird." he said, half smirking.
"Oh, just thinking."
"I wouldn't be a jerk." he said, turning serious.
"I know you wouldn't." you said quietly. Suddenly you began to feel the way you did that time in class when you had kissed him. Then you made the mistake of looking into his eyes. How you loved those eyes. He sensed a shift in the atmosphere as you watched him.
Finally the denial is over!
You found yourself leaning towards him again. Then paused.
It's vulnerability! We were practically just raped!
You were only two inches away from each other as he moved closer.
But he's... he's DRACO! We love him!
Oh c'mon it's totally obvious. We LOVE him.
Your lips met, Draco closing the gap in between the two of you and softly kissing you. Your hand pulled him closer by his neck. You seemed to be filled with every possible emotion as his hands felt down to your waist: fear, happiness, longing, lust. It was almost too much. Almost...
"Draco..." you said softly, but the words had left you as his lips moved down your neck slowly, your skin tingling at his touch. Suddenly the emotion overtook you. The anger you had toward yourself for waiting so long, the lust filling your entire body. He leaned you back onto his bed, your hands rubbing his chest. His hands ran down your back, your butt, and stopped at your thigh, pulling your leg and body up to fit against his. You were powerless at his touch. His hand reached up your shirt slowly, tracing his fingers along your stomach and sending shivers throughout your entire body. He tugged at your shirt, and you lifted your arms. He slid it off, dropping it to the side somewhere. He kissed you more hungrily, then down your neck and chest, stopping at the top of your breasts. He caressed them, and you couldn't even describe the feeling as he kissed down your stomach. Your back arched, your body wanting to be even closer to him than it already was. He undid your jeans and slid them down with both hands slowly. You kicked them away as he stood up on his knees. He admired your body for a second, covered only in a black lace bra and matching panties. Another burst of lust washed over you as you lay there with him kneeling over you. You got up on your knees, breaking his trance by kissing him hungrily. You lifted his shirt, pulling it over his head and eyeing his muscular body. You pushed him down, straddling him. You felt his muscles, running your hands along his abs and reaching down to undue his pants, never breaking the kiss. Suddenly something hit you like a big yellow school bus.
You stopped pulling down his zipper instantly, your mind buzzing. You weren't just abstinent to be abstinent, you had many reasons. One was security. Not getting pregnant is very important for an aspiring dancer like yourself. Plus you didn't want to get hurt. That was major. You were also scared, of what it would be like. Tammy said it was painful the first time.
"What's wrong?" Draco asked, looking up at you.
"Er..." You said quietly, not sure how to go about this. I mean, he was already... ready, if you know what I mean. You had heard it was mean to leave guys like that. He sat up, meeting your gaze.
"You don't want to." he said.
"No! I mean, yes! I mean... er, it's not that I don't want to--" your sentence was cut off as he kissed you softly.
"We don't have to." he said. You were completely surprised. You were certain he wanted to, but you didn't think he would wait for you. You smiled, kissing him softly as thanks. His tongue flicked at your lips and you allowed him to explore, his hands on your hips. Suddenly the door to the room opened, and you pulled away from Draco quickly, looking to see Blaise and Kasey watching you open mouthed.
Chill spazz. Jeez!
You could only imagine how horrible this looked, you straddled over a shirtless Draco in nothing but a black lace bra and panties.
"Finally, mate!" Blaise said, giving him a thumbs up. Kasey hit him and dragged him out of the room, the door slamming behind them.
"Oh my GOD! Blaise wouldn't tell, would he?!" you asked.
"No he wouldn't." Draco said reassuringly. You instantly relaxed. "Good thing you stopped, otherwise they would of walked in on something way worse." he said, smirking. You couldn't help but smile. You got off of him and sat next to him, your head on his shoulder.
"Can we just... sleep?" you asked, looking up at him. You didn't want to go back down there, and you didn't want to face Kasey. He smiled.
"Of course." he got up and went to his trunk. You sat, feeling cold for the first time and crossing your arms. The window was open and you were practically naked. He threw you a shirt, and you put it on. It reached just past your butt. He changed into some pajama bottoms and you both got under the covers. You sighed, resting your head on his chest. You were tired enough, but as soon as you lay down you felt like you could barely keep your eyes open. You closed them, but still listened. Draco didn't say anything, just laid with you. You smiled, not believing where you were. You fell asleep with only one thought:
I'M WITH DRACO MALFOY!
