5. The Room of Requirement
"Can I open my eyes yet?" Luna asked eagerly. "Not yet, but soon," Draco said dropping her hand for the fourth time, "First I have to figure out where we are so we can get there." Luna shook her head laughingly, "Can I open them so I can roll them at you?" Luna asked teasingly. Draco's laugh came from behind her, and before she could think Draco was grasping her hands again and they were moving again faster than before. He left her and she heard him whispering under his breath to her left. Draco lead her into a room. She heard the door close behind them. "Can I open my eyes now?" She whispered. There was no answer for a while and Luna was about to ask again when he answered, "yeah you can now." She opened her eyes and saw darkness for a moment when there was a flash of blue, than pink, white, red, purple, and finally green before they wiggled around and formed the words 'Will you be my girlfriend?'As quickly as it had come the light was gone and replaced with the pick black again only to be taken away as light flooded into the room revealing a room that resembles a meadow full of flowers. Looking around she saw a lone tree and a small bubbling brook. Out of nowhere she felt hands on her hips and a chin resting on her shoulder from behind. "What do you think?" Draco muttered in her ear, "Will you be my girlfriend?" Luna was shocked no one had done anything like this for her! Her of all people, Luna Lovegood 'that weird girl'. She was thrilled. "Of course I'll be your girlfriend!" Luna squealed in delight, turning to face him. Draco looked relived as she hugged him tightly. Without warning Luna pulled out of the hug and before she could say anything Draco had put his hands on the small of her back pushing her into him, and their lips crashed together. Luna smiled at the softness and warmth of his lips against her own. She had not and couldn't have begun to imagine what kissing Draco Malfoy would be like until this moment. Luna felt a happiness she had never felt before and a hunger that had nothing to do with food as he began to pull away. Luna reframed herself from leaning back in. Draco softly kisses her neck than pulled away and held put his hand for Luna to take.
She was practically glowing with happiness and her eyes danced with excitement as she took his hand. He had a sudden urge to dance with her and in a whirl of color the room transformed into a dance floor as soft music started playing. "This room never ceases to amaze me," Draco said laughing. He pulled her to his chest and she wrapped her hands around his neck and rested her head on his chest.
Luna could hear his heart thudding under his shirt and feel him sway slightly to the beat of the music. She had never been this happy and had no desire for the moment to end, but like all good things it must come to an end. A faraway bell chimed midnight and they said hurried goodbyes before scurrying away to their common rooms.
"Where have you been?" Cho asked as Luna as she collapsed sideways into a chair putting her feet up on the armrest of Cho's chair. "Oh nowhere," Luna replied with an exhausted grin. Cho shrugged as they went up the stairs to their dormitories. Luna didn't even bother to change her clothes as she got into bed. The second her head hit the white pillow she fell fast asleep.
