Secrets Can't Be Secrets Forever by rainstormsatnighttime
Chapter 1: Chapter One
Hello humans! Thanks for reading. I do not own Harry Potter. It belongs to the amazing JK Rowling. I would like to dedicate this story to a few people. To the guys who are like my brothers, thanks for the inspiration. To the friend who also loves writing, thanks for the encouragment. To the people who are taking time out of their day to read, thanks for giving me a chance. And to all the people who aren't happy with themselves, someone out there loves you no matter what you may think. Never give up.
"You have to get out of my bed you tit!"
I'm so polite. Really. My patience is worth a medal.
"I caaaaannnn'ttttt. It's too briiiiiiiiiiiighhhht!" the lump on my bed moaned.
"What have I told you about underaged drinking, young man?" I said strictly.
"Your voice is too loooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuudddddddd..."
"I'm not even shouting! But you are! Goddammit, keep it down! Do you know what will happen if my brother finds you in my bed? Bad things will happen, Danny. Bad, bad things."
"Oh relax. It's not like that."
"He doesn't know that? Are you willing to risk it?"
I grinned as he got to his feet and wobbled around a bit. "Ok, sit on the bed," I sighed. "I think Scorp would be more pissed if he saw you on top of me," I pushed him down before he could fall on me.
"What happened last night?" he mumbled.
"Guess," I said drily, going over to my cauldron and starting to make a potion for his hangover.
"Um, I think I'm gonna go with I got wasted and you didn't cause you're an old ninny."
I put down the ladel I had been using to stir the liquid, sauntered over and clapped my hands twice next to Danny's ears.
He yelped in protest and fell off the bed. Then he lay on the floor moaning for a while.
"Will you shut the fuck up?" I hissed.
"Will you?" he shot back. "You are hurting me!"
"Do you honestly want to know what pain feels like? Keep being loud, get Scorpious's attention and you will see what happens when a boy come within a mile radious of me. Except it will be worse. Because you quite obviously slept in... that," I gestured half-heartedly to his crumpled clothing. "-and I am wearing pajamas! And there's a giant you-shaped dint in the bed!"
"Oh, calm down Emmy!"
"You have a peanus and you're in my bedroom. How thick can you get?"
"I think you're ignoring a pretty factoring detail."
"I'm not sure if that sentence made any sence, but anyway, what would that be?"
"Hmm... I don't know. Maybe... I'm, um... Oh yeah! Gay. Gosh, Emmy, your memory really astonishes me sometimes."
"I know that, you dipshit!" I snapped. "Scorpious doesn't because maybe... you're, um... Oh yeah! In the feckin closet."
He pondered this for a second. "I'll be quiet."
I smiled. "Good boy," I said returning to the potion. "Now, are you gonna tell me why I had to get Louis to help me apparate you here? Because you passed out on the curb? It's a fuckin good job he saw you there!"
Danny made a noise of disgust. "I hate that kid."
"First of all, I don't care. He's one of my best friends. Second of all, if he hadn't have called me you could've stayed all night on the pavement. He did you a favour. So please tell me what the hell you were doing at that club, that drunk."
He sent me a cheeky grin. "You say it like I don't get pissed all the time."
"I know you do. But you don't normally pass out until you get here - I'd just like to say lucky me, by the way - And what were you doing in that club? Merlin, Dan. You normally have better taste."
"Hey, hey, hey. Louis was there too, was he not?"
"Oh, believe me. He shall be lectured. But at least he knew his name still when I found you guys. Now answer the fuckin question."
"I broke up with Amy."
"What?" I asked, my tone less harsh as I poured him a vile of the potion and handed it to him.
"It's just... harder," he said, before quickly downing the potion. "Thanks," he added, handing me the empty vile. I began to fill more viles with it for if he came back to mine tipsy again. Or Louis. Or very occasionally Dom...
Geez, I need more stable friends.
"What do you mean harder? At least Amy's a slut. Doesn't really matter. She probably would've dumped you for not having sex with her anyway. Unless you did. Which is kinda gross. And really low."
He grimaced again.
"Please tell me you didn't."
"Not with her!" he said quickly. "Just, you know..."
"Oh yes. I know."
I sighed. Danny has been my best friend since well before Hogwarts. I used to meet him in the park and we would play to our hearts contents. I wasn't allowed to go to muggle primary school.
I probably knew he was gay longer than he did. We never thought about it - it didn't matter. We were only in first year when he told me. I had just shrugged and said "glad you're not confused about it anymore."
But despite a couple of creeping suspiciouns, he had been in the closet all his life. I was still the only one that knew, though he was contemplating telling Dom because we were all pretty close. Except he didn't really want Louis to know about it. Because they kind of hate each other. Despite the fact that they're both like brothers to me and they do have a fair ammount in common (apart from the dudes).
To keep rumours away, Danny started dating girls occasionally when we were fifteen. He went out with a really nice girl at first. Laura, a fifth year Ravenclaw. Luckily she was a bit of a slut, and she lost her virginity when she was fourteen. He wanted to... experiment that he might actually be bisexual.
No such luck.
She was pretty upset about their break up but they managed to stay on good terms. After that he thought he had an excuse not to date for a while, but someone had spread a rumour that the reason he broke up with her was, well, the reason be broke up with her...
After that he made a promise to himself to only date sluts.
Charming, I know.
And I am best friends with this boy.
Who am I?
You didn't ask? I'll tell you anyway!
Of course you want to kn-
That's very rude.
Fine. Read another story.
Nice people will keep reading.
Greetings, nice people. I am...
dun dun DUN...
Emerald Malfoy! Mwa ha ha ha ha!!!
I am Emerald Malfoy, (don't call me Emerald and we'll get along fine) daughter of the ever famous Draco and Astoria Malfoy. Younger sister of the ever famous Scorpious Malfoy.
I wish we weren't famous. So does Scorp. So did my mum and dad.
Now I know what you're thinking - all Malfoy ever wanted was fame - to be the best, to be the favourite, the one in the spotlight.
Not since the war. All he and my grandparents did was hide.
But what not a lot of people know is that he never stopped hiding. People don't know that he's hiding right now. That me and my brother are hiding our secret from the press.
We have lived here alone since Scorp was fourteen and I was thirteen, provding for ourselves.
Only Danny (apart from Alice, obviously) knows that me and my brother live in Malfoy Manor with no parents, just each other.
He, that is, and Albus Potter, my brother's best friend.
Who I am, by the way, in love with.
No one needs to know that.It's just another secret. Another thing to hide.
Really, by now, hiding secrets is just a part of my life. Because everything is a secret.
But who knows how long it can stay that way?
Hello people! It's nice to meet you! I would really like to thank you for reading and ask you to pretty please leave a review. You will find out more about where Scorp and Emmy's parents are, who the hell Alice is, and why Dan and Amy broke up if you read more! Thank you! P.s - this is my first fanfiction and I know it's not very good but hopefully it will get better as time goes on! So thanks!
