The next morning Professor McGonagall was standing in front of the classroom and waving a pointer stick around, trying to teach us something new. I couldn’t tell you what that something was because I hadn't been paying attention for the last hour. I felt my lips lift up into a smile as I continued to replay last night’s events in my head.
Jumping in surprise, I looked at Professor McGonagall with a small smile.
“Would you mind telling me what I have been teaching?” she said and looked at me with an angry expression.
I squirmed in my seat and felt my cheeks blush from embarrassment, “I’m not sure Professor.”
“Well, make sure you pay attention next time or I will have to give you a detention.”
“Yes ma’am,” I answered and nodded my head.
She looked at me for a couple of minutes then turned around to continue with the lesson. Breathing a sigh of relief, I glanced at Draco, who was sitting a few rows in front of me, and saw him smirking. What a bastard. He knew what I was thinking and I’m sure his ego was bathing it.
“What were you smiling about?” Hermione whispered and leaned over.
I opened my mouth to tell her when someone poked me in the back. Turning around, I saw the twins sitting behind us.
“She was probably thinking of me,” Fred mentioned with a grin.
“I’m sure she was thinking of me,” George began and crossed his arms across his chest, “I’m the better looking one you know.”
“I don’t think so.”
I shook my head with smile as they began to argue and turned my attention towards Hermione, “Nothing Mione.”
She whispered okay and went back to taking notes. Seconds later, the bell rang and we all gathered our things to walk out of the classroom. Spotting the boys up ahead, I made my way towards them.
Harry smiled and wrapped his arm around my shoulder, “How was class?”
Fred came up behind us and pulled me away, “She was having naughty thoughts of me Harry so it wasn’t boring.”
Harry looked at me with an amused expression and I shrugged as George grabbed my hand and pulled me away from his brother.
“I don’t think so Fred,” he began and leaned in to whisper in my ear, “tell them. We mustn’t hide our relationship anymore.”
“Stop it you two,” I pushed him away with a laugh, “I’m with Harry.”
“Well, that’s unfortunate.”
Our friendly conversation died as Draco appeared in front of us with Pansy Parkinson, Crabbe and Goyle.
“What’s unfortunate Malfoy is that you’re still alive,” Ron told him with a glare.
Draco ignored him and looked at me with a mischievous expression, “You can do so much better Blake.”
I narrowed my eyes and shook my head in a warning but that only earned me a wink.
“Like you Malfoy?” Harry chimed in and put his arm around me possessively.
“I mean, if you insist Potter,” Draco answered with a smirk. “I wouldn’t mind hitting that.”
I grabbed Harry as he sprung forward and started to pull him towards the Gryffindor Tower. I beckoned Hermione and Ron to come with us as Fred and George said goodbye. Giving Draco one last glare, which earned me another wink, I followed behind everyone. Harry hurled his backpack at a wall as we entered the common room and sat on the couch in anger. Sitting next to him, I grabbed his hand and rubbed it softly.
“Don’t let him get to you Harry,” I began as Hermione and Ron sat on the floor in front of us, “he only says those things to make you upset.”
He sighed and leaned back in the couch to pull me into his side, “I know.”
Everyone sat in silence for a couple of minutes until I sat up and threw Hermione a smirk, “So Ron, do you fancy anyone?”
“I don’t know,” Her eyes widen in disbelief as Ron leaned forward and shrugged. “I haven’t really thought about it.”
“Who comes to mind?” I asked and stuck my tongue at Hermione as she glared.
“A friend, “ he whispered to the point where I almost missed it. Hermione’s eyes widen once more and I leaned back into Harry’s arm with a grin. I was so busy watching the two become shy around each other that I almost missed the first year running towards us.
“Which one of you is Andrea Blake?”
I raised my hand and he handed me a note then ran off. Opening it, I read it with a small smile.
Meet me at the Qudditch Pitch.
It wasn’t signed but I knew who it was. I came up with an excuse that Draco wanted to get a jump start on our project and said goodbye to everyone. I wrapped my robe around myself as I walked outside and made my way towards the grounds. I saw Draco flying around when I reached the pitch and decided not to disturb him as I sat on the grass to watch. Moments later, he saw me and stepped down.
“Why do you always have to make him angry?” I asked as he sat next to me.
“Because it’s fun,” he answered and put his arm around my waist.
“Okay, I’m sorry.”
“No, you’re not.”
He squeezed my sides and gave me a sexy pout as I glanced at him, “Please forgive me?”
“If I must,” I said and shook my head with a smile.
He grinned and planted a sloppy kiss on my cheek.
“Come on now,” I yelled with a laugh and whipped it off.
“Get up,” He got up and grabbed his broom. “We are going for a ride.”
“Absolutely not,” I said a little too quickly.
“I’m good here thanks,” I told him and crossed my arms stubbornly.
Draco narrowed his eyes then got on his broom to fly off. I continued to watch until he disappeared into the sky and frowned. Getting up, I walked around and figured he was being a baby by throwing a temper tantrum. After a couple of minutes, I started to get worried.
“Draco?” I called out.
Suddenly, I saw him appear behind the pitch and fly towards me with speed. I widen my eyes and took off running. Screaming, I struggled as he grabbed me and pulled me onto the broom. Continuing to scream, I started flaring around until Draco put his hand on my mouth.
“Trust me love,” he whispered in my ear.
I stopped and started to calm down as I realized he had his arm around so I couldn’t fall. I relaxed into him and he took his hand away.
“Okay now?” he asked.
We flew around the grounds and I watched the darkness descended as night appeared. The sun that has now disappeared was replaced with thousands of stars as a light breeze rustled the leaves. I looked through the tree branches as the moon brightened the grounds and felt my heart warm with happiness. Then I realized we were going really fast.
“Draco?” I asked getting nervous.
I didn’t relax so do you know what I did? I spazzed out, which made Draco release his broom and send us tumbling towards the ground. It wasn’t too bad because we weren’t up that far but it was still scary nonetheless.
“Ugh,” Draco said as he hit the ground first with me on top.
“I’m so sorry,” I began and got up, “are you okay?”
He grabbed to still me and started laughing. I looked shocked at first then realized he wasn’t going to yell and joined him. We continued to laugh until he noticed that our faces were inches apart. The laughter died from his eyes and was replaced with a look that sent my body into overdrive. He leaned in and firmly placed his lips against my own. As we got lost in each other, we failed to notice the shooting star that flew across the horizon.
Such a cute couple! Anyway, here is chapter 12 and a shout out to Carey Moonlight, JustAsSaneAsLuna, Elysia and Hector Rivas Jimenez for commenting! I love comments! <3
