"Come quickly or we'll miss the port key," Lucius called up the stairs.
I trotted down the stairs my bag over my shoulder, meeting Draco on the way down.
"Irish will win but Krum will catch the snitch, what do you think?" I asked Draco as we walked out the door of the manor.
"Sounds fair, Krum's good but that's all Bulgaria has going for them, Irish has a strong team all round," Draco agreed.
"Alright touch a spot," Narcissa said as Lucius looked at his watch.
"3-2-1." A feeling of being tugged at my navel we left Malfoy manor.
We went to the top box and spoke to the minister. The mascots came out and did their demonstrations.
I cheered as Ireland racked up the points, then lynch and Krum dove for the snitch, lynch splattering against the ground and Krum held the snitch aloft.
(sorry not really good at writing sport scenes of any kind.)
We celebrated at the Malfoy tent, dancing and having mugs coco.
Lucius left and returned shortly after.
"Take cover in the trees. Quickly now," he told us.
I grabbed my coat and slipped my shoes back on, "Why?" I asked.
"Don't question, Lillith," Narcissa told me as Lucius went to his room and exited in different robes.
"Ha! I knew it! you really were a death eater!" I said a grin on my face for getting it right all along.
"It doesn't bother you? The dark lord killed your parents," Narcissa said.
"I know, but if he didn't, I never would have befriended you and Draco, or Lucius. What happened for a reason and I don't hold it against anyone, at least not anymore. Now come on Draco, we should find a good spot to watch the show," I said and very near dragged him out of the tent.
We had just broken through the tree line when the screaming started.
We watched as various death eaters levitated the muggle family and muggleborns that they came across.
"I can't wait for the triwizard tournament. Watching people run around narrowly advoiding their early deaths, wonder what they have planned," I said mainly to myself.
"I think you would like my aunt if you ever met her," Draco said.
"Which aunt?" I asked.
"Bellatrix lestrange, she's in Azkaban for the torture of the longbottoms," he informed me.
"She sounds fun," I told him.
"She was, while I knew her," he muttered.
Harry, Hermione, and Ronald tumbled into the small clearing where Draco and I sat.
"Tripped over a tree root," Ronald muttered as Hermione lit her wand.
"Well, with feet that size, hard not to," Draco drawled.
Three heads whipped our way along with Hermione's wand.
"Fuck off Malfoy," Ronald hissed angrily.
"My, my, Ronald. I ought to wash your mouth out with soap," I teased.
"Better hurry along," Draco started.
"Wouldn't want her," I added, pointing to hermione, "spotted would you?
A bang and a flash of green lit the trees lining the campsite.
"What's that supposed to mean," Hermione asked hotly.
"They're after muggles granger," I told her, "Do you want to be showing off your knickers in mid-air?"
"if you do, hang around, they're moving this way and it'll give us a laugh," Draco added.
"Hermione's a witch," Harry snarled at us.
"Have it your own way Potter. If you think they can't spot a mudblood, stay where you are," Draco said grinning maliciously.
"You watch your mouth!" Ronald shouted at Draco. Hermione grabbed his arm to restrain him, muttering ,"Never mind Ron."
Another bang sounded louder than before and several people screamed.
Draco chuckled, "Scared easily don't they?" he said lazily, "I suppose your daddy told you all to hide? What's he up to- trying to rescue the muggles?" he asked.
"Where's your parents? Out wearing masks, are they?" Harry snarled his temper getting the best of him.
He turned to harry still smiling, "Well…if they were, I wouldn't be likely to tell you, would I, Potter?" he asked.
"Oh come on, let's go find the others," Hermione said a disgusted look on her face as she looked at Draco.
"keep that bushy head of yours down granger!" I called to her as they tromped off.
"Well that was fun. Shame she's a mudblood, she's rather smart," I said turning to look back at the scene at the campsite.
"Mistress," Helem said.
"Yes?" I asked.
"Let me show you what I see," he said.
"Very well, show me if you will," I told him. A moment later he bit me and my vision changed.
"Oh it's gorgeous thank you Helem," I said looking at the new scene in front of me.
Colors raced across my vision, remnants of spells cast, the emotions of the people that were here, and the new emotions as they ran for their lives.
"What?" Draco asked.
"everything, it's amazing," I told him, smiling softly at him, his aura was amazing, blues, yellows, orange and as he turned to look at me fully it turned pink in places.
"What is I don't see anything different," he told me.
"Kiss him," Alvie told me.
"What? Why?" I wasn't going to just spring a kiss on him.
"energy transfer he will be able to see too for a short while," she told me.
"DO you what to see it too?" I asked, "I can let you see it, if you want," I told him.
"Yes I would like to see it," he told me.
I took a deep breath, how to kiss without offending him, um. Aha I've got it.
"Close your eyes," I told him and he did as I said, trusting me not to just leave him there.
"Relax," I stated and placed a hand on his arm and his body slowly loosened.
I leaned in and kissed him lightly on the lips, and watched as his aura turned more pink.
"Open your eyes," I said softly.
Slowly he blinked open his eyes.
"You're beautiful," he said without thinking brushing his hand across my cheek and I blushed.
"What do you see?"
"Reds, blues, oranges, yellows and pink," he told me.
I looked out to the campsite and he followed suit.
"Woah," he muttered.
"I know. This is what Helem sees, his gift to me, and mine to you," I said.
We sat watching the colors change and move, until Lucius came looking for us.
We packed up our bags and went to the apparation site. The sight had worn off on Draco and I asked Helem to stop mine for now. Draco had been sparing sideways glances at me since, when he thought I couldn't see him.
"Have you ever side along apperated dear?" Narcissa asked me.
"Not at all, though Minnie has told me the first time is rather unpleasant," I told her.
"It is, you'll be apparating with me. Lucius will get Draco," she told me.
We stood in a line, Lucius and Narcissa on either sides of Draco and I.
"Ready?" Cissa asked quietly right after Lucius and Draco apparated.
I nodded and gripped her arm, and we left the ground. It felt like you were being shoved through a tube too small to fit you so you were broken up into pieces.
We hit the ground as quickly as we left it. I fell to one knee, my sense of balance messed up.
"Breathe Lilli," Draco said, kneeling in front of me, lightly gripping the tops of my arms.
I nodded and rested my head against his chest. "That was horrid. Why did I agree to that?" I asked softly, feeling his chest rumble as he laughed at me.
"Stop laughing at me you arse and help me up," I told him.
He stood and pulling me up by my elbows.
"Thanks. I need to floo Minerva before she read the prophet; can I use the floo in your room?" I said walking carefully into the manor.
"yea, of course, I'll help you up the stairs," he smarted.
Draco gave me a throw pillow to kneel on and I called Minnie.
The colors I chose for their auras I researched lightly on Aura_Colors_and_Their_Meaning pretty cool site nd i enjoyed reading about what the colors represented.
