3. Malfoy's promise
I was laying on my stomach, my legs folded over me swinging slightly, reading the muggle book 'Beauty and the Beast. Suddenly there was a knock on the door to the dormitory before Mione walked in beaming. "Hey Mione, what's up?" I said sitting up on my legs. "Come on! I have a surprise for you!" She said practically jumping up and down with glee. I slowly bookmarked my page and got out of the bed. Hermione and I swiftly went out to the grounds. We walked up to Hagrid's hut and Hermione knocked as I gazed at her curiously. We heard a chair drag across the floor and a few voices inside. Hagrid's bushy head appeared behind the door and he smiled when he saw us. "Oh hello Mione, who's this lovely young lady?" He asked opening the door. When I saw who was in the hit I felt my breath hitch in my throat. Harry and Ron were sitting at the table drinking tea. Hermione introduced me to Hagrid and I weakly said hello. When we walked in Mione steered me into the seat next to Harry than went to sit next to Ron. "She your girlfriend Harry?" Hagrid asked chuckling. Harry turned red, so did I. "No then eh?" Hagrid said still chuckling saving us from answering. I couldn't help but think how cute Harry looked when he blushed.
I turned red at Hagrid's comment. I glanced at Savannah and saw she had too. Then she looked at me and I turned my head quickly catching her smiling slightly in the corner of my eye. When I looked up saw I Ron and Hagrid smirking at me. Hermione was chuckling slightly at Savannah. After a while we all left for bed. I slowly trudged into bed changing into my pjs. As I collapsed underneath the covers I fell almost instantly. When I woke up I felt very happy as I remembered my dream. Bailey Waters truly is amazing.
I walked into the Great Hall for breakfast, only to be greeted by Malfoy giving me all his homework. I gasped as I saw how much there was. At least two from every class! And he takes over eight classes! "Be sure to make sure it's like I wrote it, otherwise I might 'accidentally' let your secret slip to Potter," Malfoy said as he stalked toward the Slytherin table. Stuffing all his homework into my bag I sat down with Fred, George, Hermione, and Ron. "What Malfoy was doing?" Ron asked. "Oh, Vannah decided to not let her crush know she likes him in exchange for doing all Malfoy's homework for the rest of year," replied Fred as if it was the most normal thing in the world. "What?!?" Screeched Hermione. "Why would you do that?!" Ron yelled. I looked away from them while Fred and Hermione bickered about if it was a good idea to do what I did. I saw Harry gazing fondly at Bailey. I closed my eyes and sighed getting up from the table. George jumped up and Fred followed as they saw me leave. Silent tears flowed down my cheeks as I walked through the corridors dragging my feet. I had lost the twins for now, but I knew it wouldn't last. With their knowledge of the castle they always found me in the end. Maybe I should have let Malfoy tell Harry. I sat in a corner of the library on the floor between two bookshelves and got started on mine and Malfoy's homework. Two pairs of footsteps came fast in my direction, and I hastily wiped my tears away knowing who it was. They had never seen me cry and I didn't want them to see me now. Just as I thought, Fred and George rounded the corner seconds later both of them wearing expressions of anger. I buried my face deeper into the book trying to hide myself behind it. "Hey, Vannah. Are you okay?" George asked sitting down and rubbing my back in small circles. Fred sat in front of me grasping my right hand. Knowing somebody cared about me made me a great deal happier and I smiled at them. After they helped me with my truckload of homework, we walked up to Gryffindor tower. As I walked through the portrait hole, George telling us a funny story about Lee, I was bathed in golden sunlight from the sunset streaming in through the windows. I stopped mid laugh when I saw Harry. Harry waved at us awkwardly as we stared at him. Me, in longing and the twins, with a torn expression. I knew how torn they were. They like Harry a lot, and I was they're best friend. As if my feet had a mind of their own I started walking towards the girls dormitory looking down at my feet. I curled up on my bed silently sobbing through the night.
