Three hours later, I was sitting in a chair as Draco slept in the Infirmary. Madam Pomfrey came by a half hour ago and said he was going to be fine. He’d just have a concussion, a broken arm and a few broken ribs but that didn’t make me feel better. Feeling my eyes beginning to water, I grabbed his hand and stroked it with my thumb.
“How’s he doing?” someone asked from behind me.
I looked over my shoulder and saw a good looking, tall dark skin boy with high cheekbones and slanting eyes. I glanced at the Slytherin symbol on his chest and realized who he was. I didn’t know him personally but I knew his name.
“He’s fine,” I answered.
“Blaise Zabini. You’re one of Draco’s friends.”
“His told you about me then.”
“No,” I began as I watched him sit in the chair across from me, “I just know who you are from being in school together.”
“I see,” he said and looked down at my hand. “He talks about you all the time.”
I followed his line of vision and quickly snatched it away from Draco. I opened my mouth to say something but he stopped me with a smile.
“Know what?” I asked but I already knew what he meant.
“That you and my best friend are together,” he put together in finger quotations. “He told me.”
“He did?” I asked with a surprised look.
“Yep,” Blaise nodded. “I knew something was up because he was happy and smiling all the time. That isn’t natural for Draco so I asked him what was going on and he explained.”
“Don’t worry,” he mentioned. “I won’t tell anyone.”
Blaise got up and walked over to stand in front of my chair, “Because he's my best friend and you make him happy.” He looked at Draco for a moment than turned his attention towards me, “I don’t remember the last time he actually smiled and you’re changing him.” His lips tugged up into a grin, “I’m also not a fan of Harry Potter.”
I laughed as he winked at me and walked out of the Infirmary. Maybe all Slytherins weren’t so bad.
“I love your laugh.”
I looked down at Draco and saw him staring at me, “You’re awake.”
“You got hit by a bludger and fell of your broom, “ I told him with a weak smile.
Seeing a scared look on my face, he brought a hand up and stroked my cheek, “I’m okay.”
I nodded, closed my eyes and leaned into his touch with a sigh of relief.
“Have you had anything to eat?”
I shook my head no and looked at him.
“Go get something from the Great Hall.”
“I’ll be fine,” He smiled. “Go.”
Pecking him on the lips, I looked at him one last time and walked into the hallway. I saw the Golden Trio at our table as I entered the Great Hall and made my way towards them.
“Where were you?” Harry asked when I sat down.
“Professor Snape wanted me to check on Malfoy to see if he was okay, “ I lied and grabbed an apple.
“He should’ve just died, “ Ron told us and ate some chocolate pudding.
Hermione opened her mouth to say something but I looked at Harry and changed the subject.
“What’s going to happen with the game?”
“There will be a rematch in a couple of weeks, “ he answered and grabbed a roll.
“That’s good right?” I asked and finished my apple.
“Sure, “ He nodded. “Just gives Gryffindor more time to beat Slytherin.”
I rolled my eyes, “Boys and their pride.”
Harry stuck out his tongue as Hermione turned her attention towards me, “So, when are we going dress shopping?”
“Oh, right!” I said with excitement and grinned. “How about tomorrow morning and we can get lunch before coming back.”
She smiled, “Great idea.”
We were enjoying each other’s company for the next couple of minutes than Harry got up and grabbed my hand.
I looked at him confused as he pulled me off the bench, “Where are we going?”
He didn’t say anything so I looked at Ron and Hermione with an arched my eyebrow. They both shrugged and looked just as confused as I did as Harry dragged me out of the Great Hall. Remaining quiet, I allowed him to take us out of Hogwarts and into the grounds. We stopped at the lake and Harry took out a blanket he had tucked into his robe to spread it on the grass. Sitting down, he laid on his back and beckoned me over. Still confused, I laid next to him and snuggled into his arm.
“So, what are we doing here?” I asked when we settled.
Again, he didn’t say anything and pointed towards the sky. Following his arm, I looked up and my heart literally melted from the view. A canvas of colors spread throughout it as a warm lavender and orange glow became more prominent. The last traces of light dipped over the trees as the grounds below were engulfed in a landscape of shadows. The sun, finally laying to rest, vanished behind the thin horizon, abandoning us as Harry titled my head up with his other hand to kiss me and the world around us disappeared.
Don't worry! I'd never kill Draco off :D Anyway, I thought it was time to throw in a little romance between Andrea and Harry. It's been all about Draco lately (not that it's a bad thing) and I wanted others to know Andrea's heart is torn in two different directions with entirely two different guys.
