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?


6. The Three Broomsticks

"We're here." Draco told Arabella softly. Arabella slowly lifted her head from Draco's shoulder as he loosened his grip on her thighs, allowing her to slide slowly down his back until her feet softly hit the snow covered ground. She smiled in thanks and walked  towards the door to enter The Three Broomsticks. She pushed it open and stepped inside, holding it open for Draco who nodded in thanks as he stepped in beside her, she then shut the door and smiled as the warm air greeted them both.

"Do you want to order or shall I?" Arabella asked Draco, glancing around the room to find a table for two. At the same time, Draco's eyes scanned The Three Broomsticks, his eyes searching for someone in particular but frowned as he did not see her. "Draco?" Arabella call, waving her now un-gloved hand in front of his face, laughing a little. Draco chewed the inside of his right cheek as he debated whether he would have enough time for a butter beer before Katie got here. Eventually, Draco decided he would and turned to Arabella.

"You go sit down and get yourself warmed up, I'll order." He told her with a smile. Arabella smiled gratefully before turning and going to find a  table whilst Draco head over to the bar. He sat on a stool and tapped his fingers on the counter impatiently as he waited for the bartender to notice him. He finally did and walked over, standing before Draco, his hand covered with a checkered tea-towel as he cleaned a pint glass.

"What can I get ya?" He asked with a slight smile.

"A butter beer and a fire whisky, please." Draco ordered. The bartender nodded, put the pint glass he had previously been cleaning away and got on with the order. Draco glanced behind him, his eyes searching for Arabella. But once his eyes found her, his smile turned to a frown as sat opposite her, was Harry Potter. Arabella threw her head back and clapped her hands together as she laughed loudly as Harry chuckled and smiled, clearly pleased that he'd made her laugh. Draco glared at the back of Harry's head before turning back to the bar and noticing his order in front of him. Draco quickly paid and picked up the drink before making his way back to Arabella, who smiled at him over Harry's shoulder. Harry glanced around, noticing Draco approaching, quickly made an excuse to leave and sat back at his own table with Hermione and Ronald, whose table was somewhat near the bathroom.

"I thought you wanted a butter beer?" Arabella asked Draco as she slipped her hands around her glass of butter beer, lifting the glass to her soft, pink lips and taking a sip before placing it back ontot the table. Draco shook his head, a hand around his glass of fire whisky.

"I did but I changed my mind." Draco explained. Arabella nodded and took another sip of butter beer, just as a cold gust of winter wind filled the bar as the door was opened and a group of friends entered. Draco and Arabella glanced towards the door and noticed Katie among them. Katie glanced over, noticing Arabella and gave her a smile and a wave. Arabella grinned and waved back before turning to Draco, her eyes narrowing slightly in confused as  Draco stared at Katie. He didn't have much time now. "I'll be right back." Draco told her before getting up and walking into the bathroom, catching Harry's eye as he stepped inside the men's bathroom and shut the door. He then apparated into the girl's bathrooms, which thankfully, were empty. Draco stared at himself in the mirror, running his suddenly cold fingers through his blond hair.

Was he really going to go through with this? Yes, he must. Draco quickly put the package onto the window sill, close to the sinks, where Katie would definitely find it. She would then be cured and deliver it to him. Draco's part in the plan was now complete.
