I sat alone at a table in the library, indulged in a great book, when Rose popped out of nowhere. "Oh, uh Scorpius, Hi where's Albus I need to talk to him?" She asked, my heart fluttered in my chest when I saw her.
"He's with Harry right now, he should be back before dinner." I replied, holding back a smile.
"Oh well, do you mind if I sit with you while I wait, I kinda wanted to talk to you as well." Rose said nervously, I gestured towards the seat across from me and she sat down. "Thanks, I wanted you to know I didn't say no because I don't like you, I said no because I'm not ready for a relationship." My heart sped up, I forced back an enormous smile, but my eyes grew wide. "I know, it sounds crazy. I'm 14 and not ready for a relationship, but I just want to focus on my education right now. Well and the fact that dad made me swear I wouldn't date till fifth year." Rose explained
"Fifth year eh, gives me a little bit of hope for next year." I grinned, I played it cool on the outside, but on the inside I was freaking out.
"Yeah, I guess." She smiled "Well I gotta go, good luck on your exams. Remember one more month of school." She grinned one more time and exited the library.
"One more month of 4th year." I kept muttering to myself, finally it was time for dinner. I could barely eat though, I was so excited. Boy was Albus going to get an earful tonight, and the rest of the month. Everyday since then I had been counting down to September 1st.
"Well since we're all friends again, why don't we sit with Rose?" Albus asked when we were boarding the Hogwarts Express.
"You idiot, I can't sit with Rose on the train, do you know how awkward that'd be. Let's just try and get our own compartment." I replied rolling my eyes. Sure enough there was a free compartment right there.
"So you sure you want to dirty up the Malfoy name with a half-blood?" Albus asked jokingly.
"Hahaha very funny, my father may not approve, But Rose is worth it." I replied looking out my window, and that was the last we talked about her on the train ride.
