Good Intentions

Draco Malfoy is misunderstood and his attitude is second nature to him. He was raised to believe in blood purity, wealth and power. He’s a confused youth being influenced by his fathers past and current deeds but his best friend (and secret love) brings out the best in him and helps to keep him in line. But what happens when Draco is soon forced to let her go?


1. Back To Hogwarts

The last thing Draco Malfoy wanted to do, was go back to Hogwarts. This was the case for several reasons, one of them being Arabella Rider, his best friend. Draco loved Arabella, deeply and purely. But they could not be together for she did not feel the same way. Draco knew that his parents would approve as Lucius, his father and Narcissa, his mother, had met Arabella on a number of occasions and had thought that she was an absolute delight, which Arabella was. Nevertheless, it just could not happen, which made Draco’s heart ache.

Draco’s negative thoughts quickly left as his eyes were met with the grey eyes of Arabella, who at that moment squealed happily and embraced him in a very tight but welcoming hug, causing Draco to smile. Draco and Arabella then pulled out of the hug and began talking about their holidays away from each other. Goyle and Blaise, Draco’s ‘friends’, joined them on the platform a few moments later and although Arabella continued to tell them about her holidays, Draco just couldn’t concentrate while Goyle and Blaise were leering at her.

Arabella Rider was an extremely attractive girl. Her hair was platinum blond, like Draco, and fell in slight waves all the way down to her lower back. She had very light blue, almost grey, eyes that always seem to sparkle and she was skinny, but had curves in all the right places. Arabella was also different to Draco, she did not care about the ‘pureblood’ status she held and had become friends with quite a few ‘halfbloods’ and muggle borns, one being Hermione Granger. Arabella had also become very close friends with the Weasley twins, who at that moment spotted Arabella from across the platform.

“Bell!” Fred called as himself and George ran across the platform towards her. Arabella turned and smiled widely as the twins reached her and pulled her into a very big hug, causing her to giggle loudly. All of this earned the twins an eyeroll from Draco but they had learned to ignore it and took no notice of him, continuing to talk to Arabella. Fred and George began to tell her all about what they’d been up to over the holidays but Draco ignored the deep conversation that they were now in and focused his attention to Arabella. He smiled as she laughed at something the twins said, a smile spreading quickly across her face. She truly was beautiful. But Draco’s smile faded as he looked to her eyes, they sparkled as she looked at Fred. Draco’s blood boiled and he quickly looked to the grubby platform floor, enabling him from seeing the train pull up at the platform.

“Draco?” Arabella called, although Draco was now too deep in thought to hear her. “Draco?” Arabella called again, placing a hand on his shoulders. Jolted from his thoughts, Draco glanced up to Arabella and she smiled. “The train is here.” She explained. Draco nodded and collected his things as Arabella bid farewell to the twins. When Draco looked up, he saw Arabella making her way to the train, a group of Ravenclaw wizards behind her and staring. Draco’s protective manner quickly set in and he pushed his way through the crowd, making sure he stood behind her as she boarded the train. Draco turned to the wizards behind him and glared before stepping fully onto the train himself and following Arabella down the narrow train corridor.

As they walked, the train pulled away from the platform with an accidental jolt, knocking Arabella to the floor. Draco tried to grab hold her arm as she fell but lost balance himself, falling to the floor also. Arabella turned her head to look at Draco, who was lying on the floor next to her, and began laughing at the incident. Draco, however, stared at her with a slight smile on his face. “Draco, why are you staring at me?” Arabella asked him with a giggle as she sat up, rubbing her head. Draco quickly snapped out of the trance he had seemed to be in and stood up before her, holding out his hands for her. She smiled and took them and Draco helped her to her feet. Arabella let go of one of Draco’s hands, but kept hold of the other. “Lets sit down, we don’t want that to happen again.” Arabella said with a laugh as she pulled Draco to their usual spot on the train with all the other Slytherin housemates.
