10. Make-ups and Break-ups
"Luna I'm so sorry for everything I put you through," Draco started, "you mean the world to me and I was just angry that another guy wanted you. You asked to be forgiven, and I forgive you," Luna yanked on her hair a little to buy some time to think about it. "Draco I-" Luna started. "Luna wait!" Cried Ginny from the corner, "He doesn't realize how amazing you are! He doesn't deserve you! He didn't even know how loyal you are!" At this Draco smiled a little. Cho and Hermione glared at him. "I actually heard her through the door I've been standing out here for like ten minutes," Draco replied shyly. Hermione scoffed at him. The look on Hermione and Ginny's said 'I hate you' while Cho's face had a glazed unreadable look on it.
Granger and the Weaslett both had faces of sheer hate, but the Ravenclaw had a strange look I couldn't quite place. He shrugged and decided to ignore them this was all about Luna and me. He knew he only had one shot at winning Luna back. Taking a deep breath Draco started talking, "Okay Luna, I know you probably hate me but I want you to know that you are the best thing that's ever happened to me." Her face relaxed and she was about to speak when Granger so rudely interrupted! "Luna think carefully, I mean he is a Slytherin after all," she said shrinking under his glare.
He looked so hopeful, so scared for her answer. She just couldn't let him down Luna loved him too much. Looking around she grabbed his hand and lead him hurriedly out of the bathroom and behind a tapestry of a stern looking wizard. Behind it there was a small rectangular room. "Okay," Luna started now interruption-free, "I do forgive you Draco, I know hurt and anger can drive you to do things you regret." Draco leaned forward and gently kisses her cheek before running his fingers through her waterfall of hair. "Thank you Luna I know I've been stupid and I'm so glad you can find it in your heart to forgive me," he whispered in her ear tickling her slightly. "Well it was a very hard decision," Luna said mockingly and sighing with a hand on her forehead dramatically. Draco pulled her to him, and held her close, his head on top of hers."Draco?" Luna said softly. "Hmm?" He said. "M-maybe we shouldn't tell everyone that we're back together?" She asked nervously, twiddling her fingers. Draco jerked back and looked at her. "Why?!" He asked looking slightly hurt. "W-well," she said growing more nervous by the second, "T-then people wouldn't be trying to stop our relationship...." His eyes and posture softened as he pulled her closer and whispered, "Whatever you want, Love" Awhile later Luna opened the door to the common room to reveal Cho sitting in the chair by the fire. "Hey Luna, how did it go with Draco?" Luna's eyes widened. "Oh, un... Have you seen the latest of the Quibbler?" Cho's eyes widened and she looked like she was suppressing a grin. "Oh Luna! You broke up that's horrible! I've got to go tell the others! See ya!" Cho cried happily leaving the common room. Luna sighed as she went up to her dorm, head pounding, and took a nap.
