"It's been a week now.", I whined and kicked one of the armchairs in front of the fireplace.
"Didn't you receive his letter this morning?", Ginny asked.
"No, I thought so to," I cried, "but it was a letter from my parents."
Tears shot to my eyes, not sure, whether of anger or sadness, I blinked them away. I got out my parents letter and threw it into the fire. Patiently I watched it burn and disappear, before I sat down in the armchair opposite to Ginny.
"You know what I am going to do? I will write him a letter, now!", I told her and got up, too fast.
Ginny caught me, before I hit the floor and made me sit down again. While she left me, to bring me a glass of pumpkin juice, the tears continued flooding. Few moments later, she reappeared, carrying a glass, a quill, some parchment and an ink bottle.
"Thank you.", I thanked her and reached out for the parchment.
"Not yet," she whispered, "you'll have to calm down first."
I nodded in agreement and leaned back in my chair, sipping pumpkin juice.
It went dark already and I was still sitting in the owlry. Just as I decided to leave, I recognized footsteps from below. I cursed silently and hid in a dark corner, hoping that the intruders wouldn't see me.
"I hope he's fine.", I heard Pansy whisper.
"I bet he is. He hasn't written that Granger girl either, At least I think so, as she wasn't too happy the last few days.", a girl, I didn't know answered her.
"Urgh, Granger. Guess you're right, he didn't write her. However, that could also be a very bad sign.", Pansy sighed and grabbed the owl nearest to her.
"Don't you think, somebody would have informed Granger, if he was in serious trouble?", the unknown girl asked, while Pansy towed her letter to the owls' leg.
"Astoria, think about it. Dracos parents didn't approve of Granger as their sons' girlfriend, they wouldn't tell her. Anyways, I am pretty sure, that he does not particularly brag about his oh so adorable muggle-born.", she snapped and let go of the owl, which flew away immediately.
Her words hurt actually and I couldn't help the tears. The sobbing made them aware of my presence and they found me at once.
