Chapter 15: A detention with Ron
“Now Lucida” Fred began flinging an arm around her shoulders
“We need a little chat” George started as he too flung an arm around her shoulders. Lucida felt her stomach lurch; had they seen her and Draco talking on the field?
“Now we have heard that our little brother has been feeling upset lately, especially after that little incident with Zabini earlier” Fred told her
“That was really funny; I don’t think Zabini knew what was happening!”
Lucida frowned slightly what were they talking about?
“And we we’re wondering why that was” she felt almost relieved this meant that they didn't know what was happening. She was certain that Ron didn't know how could he?
But that still didn't explain why he had all of a sudden become angry at Zabini, Lucida assumed it was because he had said something about his family or was teasing him.
“Because… when he’s sad…”
“You’re sad?” Lucida asked trying to hide her anxiety and guilt
“Well… no actually… when he’s sad then we’re happy because we’re laughing at him” George stated
“We were actually thinking that maybe there was something you could do to you know…”
“Cheer him up a little”
“And how do you propose that I do that?” Lucida said looking to each of the twins in turn
“By you know…” Fred winked at her
“You know” George said nudging her
“Are you suggesting what I think you’re suggesting?” Lucida asked outraged a little that they would ask her to give their little brother what she thought they were asking
“Just play a little chess with him” George said loudly
Lucida let out a little laugh, they always knew how to get her embarrassed and then say a completely different thing to what she knew they really meant
“And don’t go playing chess how you played it back at Christmas” Fred warned
“Or we shall have to have another little chat like this”
Lucida laughed again at the prospect of the twins ever being serious with her.
“Now go brush up on your err… chess playing skills and we’ll make sure no one disturbs you” Fred winked at her
“I certainly hope you’re still talking about chess and not something else” Lucida told them sternly
“As if we would talk about something like that!” George said outraged “we are innocent young chaps, how dare you fill our heads with filth like that!” and they both stood up, raising their noses into the air and flouncing away from Lucida with more bounce in their step then was necessary. Lucida laughed at them before she stood up to go and talk to Severus and to get more of her special lollipops she was becoming quite peckish.

Draco walked with his head high towards a detention, grinning, he knew that this meant he would be spending time with Lucida, which could lead to something else afterwards… He hid his triumphant grin as he got to Snape’s office, replacing it with an irresistible smile and as he strutted into the room, but he didn’t see Lucida.
Instead sitting in her place was…
“What are you doing here?” Draco demanded his face fell into a scowl
Ron took a deep breath
“I took my anger out on a few Slytherins and punched Zabini…” he glared at Draco
“..It’s all you Slytherins deserve...” he growled
“Now Mr Weasley, that is not behaviour I expect, nor want in my room” Snape drawled from his desk.
Draco sat down in a huff, then leant back casually
“Will Lucida be here tonight sir?” Ron glared at him, fuming
Snape raised his head towards Draco and sighed an answer at him
“She will not be joining you tonight Malfoy, because she is spending her time helping Madame Pomfrey in the Hospital wing”
Draco did all he could to not show the disappointment on his face
“Oh well” he said shrugging
Snape rose from his desk
“Now I will be gone for a few minutes I have a meeting with professor Dumbledore, I don’t want any fuss whilst I am gone”
Snape aimed this last comment at Ron, who blushed; little did Ron know it was aimed equally between the boys.
Snape turned on his heel and left, Draco stood and lazily walked around the room. He turned back and saw Ron glaring at him
“What are you staring at weasel?”
Ron gritted his teeth and clenched the arm of his chair
“Don’t think I don’t know what you are doing to her …”
Draco sneered at him
“It’s not my fault your…girlfriend…wants me” he sneered the word “girlfriend” as though it was hard to believe.
“You’re only using her...” Ron growled again
Draco raised his eyebrows, and then inspected his nails lazily.
“Your point being? At least she enjoys my company, I can give her what she needs” he flashed a malicious smile at Ron
“Only the scum, of the earth would enjoy your company” Ron said
“Maybe that’s why the half-breed likes my company”
“Take that back!” Ron snapped, standing quickly
“Ooooo I’ve hit a nerve” Draco scoffed
“Well, we’ll just see whose name she’ll be moaning at the end of the night shall we?”
“Yeah moaning for you to get off of her” Ron said clenching his fists
”Is that all you could come up with Weasley?” Draco said rolling his eyes and leaning against the fire place
“No wonder she wants me! You’re pathetic! you may as well give up, she’s pretending with you anyway..”
“I think you’ll find it’s the other way around” said Ron folding his arms in defiance
Draco tutted and sighed
“Ah! So naïve the little weasel is…” Ron stood fuming silently
“Never mind” Draco said shrugging, he strolled past Ron with his hands behind his back
“You can have her if you want”
Ron spun round taken aback…he had expected more of a fight then this!
Then Draco slowly turned round and smiled spitefully
“…I’ll just have your sister instead”
“You wouldn’t!” Ron hissed
“..Well you can’t protect them at the same time can you! No-one can resist my charms...” Draco grinned, running his hands through his ice blond hair
“You’re sick!” spat Ron, screwing his face up in disgust.
“….that’s not what your sister said...”
And with that final remark Ron lost it, launching himself at Draco he slammed him up against the wall and continuously punched him, Draco fighting back with just as much force
“WHAT IS GOING ON?!” Snape roared
The boys stopped and they turned to see Professor Snape hands folded glaring at the bruised pair and behind him, stood ...Lucida.
Draco and Ron quickly let each other go and stood apart.
“I’ve had enough of this!” Snape muttered
He turned to Lucida and gave her a bag he took out of his pocket, Lucida smiled in thanks and quickly left. Ron craned his neck to see which way she went
“Draco you can go…”
Ron snapped his head back and stared at Snape
“Sir!” he cried
Snape held his hand up
“I don’t what to hear it Mr Weasley, certainly not after this performance” he nodded at Draco who was touching a freshly forming bruise on his left cheek.
“Out you go Malfoy” Snape said strolling towards his desk, as he sat down, Ron looked at Draco who stood in the doorway and was making suggestive and rather obscene gestures, obviously about Lucida and licked his lips. With one last wicked grin he left.
The bottom of Ron’s stomach collapsed and he turned back to Snape
“Sir...” he began
“Mr Weasley one more fight or ounce of vicious or violent behaviour from you and Professor McGonagall will have to deal with you personally” Snape looked up from his desk.
“if you ever feel the need to let out your anger, then I suggest you bring Potter back to earth and try your punches on him” Ron clenched his fists and raised his chin defiantly, he knew that if he said anything he wouldn’t be able to leave…..and he had a feeling that Snape knew this too.
“alright I have nothing for you to do, but hopefully that beating you took from Mr Malfoy will be enough for you” Ron opened his mouth…then quickly shut it
“You may go…”
Ron muttered a thank you and fled out of the room…just in time to see Draco grab hold of Lucida’s arm as she came out of the next room, but before Ron could even see red. Lucida slapped him.
“What did you do that for?” Draco cried nursing his already sore cheek
Lucida however just turned on her heel and went to leave. Ron took this opportunity to sneer at Draco as he quickly walked past him and to also grab hold of Lucida’s arm.
“What did you do that for!!?” Ron cried, also nursing an already bruised cheek.
Lucida turned back to them triumphantly
“That is because you are both immature losers” and with that she popped a lollypop into her mouth and left
Draco and Ron stood metres away from each other staring as Lucida happily walked away from them both
“I think she was talking to you Weasley”
“Shut up ferret!”
