4. Jealousy

Apple and Draco sat together on his bed and talked until Crabbe and Goyle came in, when Draco had to leave her on his bedside table and go and do homework with them. He couldn't concentrate, so after two hours of restlessly fidgeting and checking the clock, he told them that he was tired and went up to bed. To his dismay, he found that another student was already there, so he couldn't talk to Apple anymore. As much as he loved her, he wasn't ready to face other people's opinions, although he didn't want to upset Apple... He told her that he was tired, and pretended to fall asleep, feeling vaguely guilty for lying to her. But he'd rather that than admit to her that he didn't want anyone to know.

The next day, when Draco got up, Apple was gone. He looked around the room, on the floor, on the beds, he even looked in his trunk, although he couldn't imagine why she'd be in there. Panicked, he started to crawl about on the floor, searching for her. What if Crabbe or Goyle had...? No, he wouldn't think about that.

"Apple!" He whispered urgently. There came a scuffling from the direction of the door. Draco stood up, banging his head on his bed in the process, but that didn't slow him down. He walked to the door and whispered again, "Apple!" Silence. Perhaps the noise had been his imagination. Dejected, he trudged back to his bed and flopped onto it. Maybe Apple had just been a dream...

Just then, a tiny voice floated into the room.

"I'm here! I'm here! Can you open the door?" Draco jumped up and rushed to the door, flinging it open to find Apple sitting there.

"Apple!" He cried, "I thought you were gone forever!" He picked Apple off the floor and strode back to the bed with her. 

"Of course I wasn't gone, silly," blushing, Apple giggled at Draco's foolishness. "I had just gone for a night time stroll round the common room. It was kind of lonely sitting by myself in your room, but in the common room I met a friend of mine! I've asked him to meet me here," Apple turned and gestured to the open door, where a crimson apple came into view. "This is Adam," she said to Draco. Draco didn't know what to think about this new arrival, so he decided to save judgement for later.

"Adam," Apple called to him, "This is Draco," Adam grinned and rolled across the floor towards them.

"You wouldn't mind helping me up, would you?" Adam asked. His voice was surprisingly loud for such a small fruit. Draco leaned down and lifted Adam onto the bed next to Apple, and Adam and Apple embraced, much to Draco's displeasure.

"I haven't seen you for ages, Apple!" Adam said, smiling at her. 

"No, it's good to see you again," Apple simpered. Draco leaned in, cleared his throat and said "Nice to meet you, Adam," and forced a smile. He didn't like the way Adam was looking at Apple.

"Likewise," Adam replied, grinning back. There was an awkward silence before Apple explained. "Adam was my first boyfriend," she said, "Draco and I met yesterday. He rescued me from the dinner table. He saved my life," She looked up at Draco and beamed, and Draco winked at her. He tried to keep a smile on his face, but he was annoyed that Apple was so happy to see her ex boyfriend, who looked like he was handsome by apple standards. 

"Apple, can we talk outside for a moment," whispered Adam. Draco could here him easily, so he didn't know why Adam bothered whispering. Apple nodded, and turned to Draco.

"Do you mind if we step outside?" Draco frowned.

"Actually, I have to go get some breakfast now. I'll be back before I leave for lessons," quickly, without saying bye to either of them, Draco pulled his robe over his pyjamas and left.
