4. Chapter Four

       Nysa had finally relieved some of the stress after her parents' disownment by finally finding some friends. Ever since Draco had introduced her to Hermione things had gotten increasingly better. Nysa had been introduced to the infamous Harry Potter, who her mother and father just adored, and she could see why. Harry was indeed incredibly charming and easy on the eyes as well. The only downside to becoming friends with Hermione and Harry was that Ron was always around and when the tension between them wasn't obvious, Ron always said or did something to draw negative attention to Nysa.

      "So I see you've become incredibly acquainted with the golden trio themselves?" Draco scoffed as he caught up to walk alongside Nysa.

       "More like Hermione and Harry and I are starting to become friends I guess, but..." Nysa sighed, her sentence trailing off as she sat down on a bench in the student courtyard.

        "But what, Grey?" Draco asked her, sitting down next to her.

         "It's Ron. He's always insulting me or trying to say something about my family or how I attended Ilvermorny, he even got all his other Gryffindor friends to start calling me that." Nysa groaned.

        "You want me to hex him for you? Because I'll do it, Weasel's always been a pain in my ass ever since our first year at Hogwarts." Draco told her, trying to get Nysa to laugh.

         "No, I don't want you hexing anybody for me, Malfoy. But do you think maybe I should talk to Hermione or Harry? Maybe they can give me some advice on how to deal with him." 

        "If anyone knows how to deal with Weasel when he's being a prick, it's Granger. Your best bet is probably going to be her." Draco advised.

        "Thanks, Malfoy." Nysa smiled, hugging him lightly. Draco tensed at the feeling, no one had ever hugged him before, let alone treated him kindly. Then again, he couldn't blame them.

        Nysa released him from her grasp and ran off to find Hermione, who to no one's surprise was studying in the library. 

       "Hey, Nysa!" Hermione smiled, shutting the book she was reading, despite the fact she had read it numerous times before.

      "Hey, Mione! I have a quick question and I was hoping that you could help me." Nysa smiled slightly, sitting down across from her.

     "I can sure try. What's the problem?"

      "It's Ron..." Nysa started to say, but Hermione quickly cut her off.

      "Ah, I figured that's what you were going to say. Listen, I know Ron can be difficult and if I'm being one hundred percent honest, it's probably because you're friends with Malfoy." Hermione explained.

      "But if that were the case why doesn't Harry care?" Nysa asked incredibly confused, knowing full well the relationship between Harry and Draco was just as bad as her's and Ron's/

      "He cares, but he looks past it because, and don't tell him I told you this, but Harry has a bit of a crush on you."

       Nysa stared at Hermione, wide-eyed, trying to contain her laughter. Harry Potter, the boy who lived, the chosen one, has a thing for her? No, no way, absolutely not.

       "He what? No, that's impossible." Nysa half-laughed, hoping Hermione was joking.

       "He does, but I know you and Malfoy have a bit of a thing going on, so it doesn't really matter at this point." Hermione said seriously.

     "Draco and me," Nysa exclaimed, this time doubiling over in laughter, "no, no, no, most definetely not. Malfoy and I are just friends, nothing more."

     "So then you'll give Harry a chance?" Hermione asked, smiling. Nysa saw the slight glimmer of hope in her eyes, Hermione was trying to play match maker.

     "I..." Nysa began to say, but was at a loss for words. Sure she found Harry attractive, but it was Harry Potter. She might have well been dating a celebrity if she went out with him.

    "It'll keep Ron off your back." Hermione said in a sing-song voice, twisting a curled lock of her hair, so clearly trying to convince Nysa to give Harry a chance.

    "Okay, I'll give him a shot. What's the worst that could happen?" Nysa finally conceded, her last words playing over and over again in her head. What's the worst that could happen? It's just one date, right? But what about Draco?
