Chapter 12: Investigating and the Two Week Mark
"Draco, please, I have to go now!" I said pulling away for at least the fifteenth time.
"Oh, come on, just one more." He said pulling me back in for a kiss for the sixteenth time. He kept saying 'just one more' but he just didn't want me to leave.
I pulled away again. "Seriously, I need to go." I said firmly, wishing I didn't have to go.
Draco sighed moodily. "All right, fine." He wrapped his arms around me. "But how long do I have to wait to see you again?" He asked.
"You'll see me at dinner." I said smiling.
"You know what I mean. When will I get to kiss you again?"
"Hmmm, after dinner. When we're alone again." I answered.
He groaned. "That's so far away."
"I know, baby, but remember, good things come to those who wait." I said.
"But I want you right now." Draco whispered, gently pressing his lips against my neck.
I closed my eyes. I loved when he did this. But at the same time I hated it, because it made me not want to leave. But I had to get going.
With much diffculty, wriggled out of Draco's grip. "I need to leave, I will see you later." I said giving him a very quick kiss, so he wouldn't pull me back in.
"Okay, fine. I love you." He said.
"I love you too, babe." I said running off. I was supposed to be at the library, studying for Potions, since I was slightly lost in that class. Draco obviously had other plans for me.
As I was turning the corner, I ran smack into Pansy. "Hey." I said breathlessly, as I tried to get rid of any evidence that I had been with Draco. Fixing my hair, clothes, covering my neck, ect.
"What are you up to?" She asked.
"I was headed to the library, actually." I said.
"Oh. Where were you before that?" Pansy asked.
Pansy sighed. "Jo, I know okay." She said.
"You know what?" I asked carefully.
"You think I haven't noticed you sneaking around? Or you running off some place? Or how you always seem to be 'nowhere.' You're seeing someone, aren't you? You slept with this someone the night Draco broke up with me."
This was it. The moment that Pansy confronts me about my relationship with Draco. I just wish he was here too. I wasn't sure I could handle this alone.
I sighed. "Yes, I am."
"Draco." She said. "Does he know?" She asked.
"Huh?" I asked confused.
"Does Draco know you're seeing someone?" Pansy repeated.
I just stared at her. She still hadn't figured it out. It's not like I want her to, but I'm just shocked that she hadn't put the clues together. Everything added up to me and Draco dating behind her back. But she still hadn't gotten to that conclusion, and I sure as hell wasn't helping her get there.
"Umm, n-no, he doesn't know at all. No one does." I answered. "Well, besides you." I added in.
"Really?" She asked. "Who is it?"
"I'm sorry, I can't tell you right now. We're keeping it very quiet right now. It's our little secret." I explained.
Pansy shrugged. "All right then."
"So, what are you up to?" I asked, desperate to change the subject.
"Investigating." She answered.
"Who Draco cheated on me with."
"Oh." I said, hoping I sounded casual.
"Yep, and I think I'm close too. I just know I am." Pansy said smiling in a crazy way.
"Any leads?" I asked, a little nervous.
"A few, actually. Jen Shields, An Monolee, Kay Lanson, and Daphne Greengrass." She said.
"What?" I asked. "Daphne? She's your friend."
"I know, but I can't rule anyone out. I was even suspicious of you for a moment, but I quickly scratched you off my list, because you and Draco are best friends. Nothing would ever happen between you two." She explained.
"Right you are." I chuckled nervously.
"Yeah, so Daphne is on my list until I can cross her off. I sure hope I can. I would hate to find out one of my friends went behind my back and slept with my boyfriend." Pansy smiled.
I smiled back weakly, wanting the ground to swallow me up and never spit me out. Would that be possible?
"Yeah, so, I gotta go." I said, needing to get away from the guilty feeling I currently have.
"Are you gonna go see your boyfriend?" She asked.
"No. Actually, I have some studying to do. I'll see you later." I waved and walked away. When I sat down at a table in the library, I knew there was no way in hell I could focus on Potions. One of my best friends was trying to find out who slept with her boyfriend. It was me. I'm the one she's looking for and she has no fucking clue!
I don't even deserve to have made it this far without her finding out about me and Draco. I just know karma is gonna come and bite me in the ass for this. And it's gonna hurt.
"What's wrong?" Draco sighed in slight frustration. Here he was kissing me with such passion, and I was barely paying attention. He didn't like that.
"Why do you mean?" I asked.
"I mean, here I am, focusing all of my energy on my girlfriend, kissing and touching her, and she's clearly thinking about something else." He explained.
"I'm sorry." I said. "It's nothing." I kissed him deeply, trying to focus only on him. After some time, my mind started wandering again. Somehow Draco noticed, and he groaned.
"Damn it, Jolina, what's going on?!" He demanded. I knew he meant business because he used my full name.
I sighed. "It's Pansy." I said. "She's investigating who you cheated on her with."
"What?" Draco asked. "But-why?"
"She wants to know really bad." I answered.
"I thought she'd be over it by now."
"Draco, you two were together for two years. You can't honestly think she'd be over this in a week." I said in disbelief.
He sighed. "I had hoped she would. Why can't she just get over me?"
"For the same reason I never got over you." I smiled slightly. "You are an amazing, charming guy. A guy like you is impossible to find."
I sat in his lap facing him and kissed him. His hands slid up my thighs to my hips as my hands played with his hair.
"Oh, now you want to pay some attention to me." He whispered, kissing me again.
This day had come so fast, I thought I would have more time. But, no, here it is, the day I've been dreading. Draco and I have been together for exactly two weeks today. I'm a nervous wreck.
I've never had a relationship pass the two week mark, and I'm hoping beyond belief that this is the relationship that will make it. It's the only one I've really ever cared about.
I know, I shouldn't be freaking out. I mean, I love Draco, he loves me, there should be no problem...but there could be. What if Draco is already tired of me? But he didn't seem tired of me last night when we made love. But something could have changed by now.
I've contradicted myself at least a million times today, and it's not even breakfast. I hadn't even really seen Draco today. I snuck out of bed extra early, so I could save myself from:
"Good morning, Jo, love. Sorry to say this, but I'm breaking up with you."
Who wants to wake up to that? I sure don't.
Seeing him at breakfast made my stomache twist in knots. I gave him a weak, nervous smile as I sat down next to him.
"Hey, uh, missed you this morning." Draco whispered, tapping his fingers on the table nervously. He was probably nervous about dumping me! Was he going to do it now, in the midst of all these people so I wouldn't cause a scene?! That's just cruel.
"Um, yeah. I uh, wanted to take a long shower this morning." I said chewing on my lower lip.
"Oh." He said rubbing the back of his head. Another nervous habit of his. I wish he would just hurry up and do it, instead of dragging it out.
"Hey, guys." Blaise said sitting down across from us. He leaned foward and whispered. "Are you two still together?"
"Yes." I answered quickly.
"Of course. Why would you ask that?" Draco said.
Draco must have told Blaise he was breaking up with me today, and Blaise thought he had already done it or something. Why else would he ask that?
So, I guess my relationship with Draco Malfoy will be over by the end of the day, since I can't stay with someone longer than two weeks to save my life.
I can't believe after two amazing weeks, it's over between me and Jo. It's so obvious she wants to break up with me. This morning when I woke up, she wasn't in bed. She was always in bed when I woke up.
And this morning at breakfast, I could tell she was nervous. She was chewing her lip and looking around anxiously. The only reason could be that she was nervous about breaking up with me. I thought she was going to do it right then, so I couldn't really do anything considering we were around a ton of people in the Great Hall.
Then Blaise asked if we were still together. He must know that Jo is breaking up with me, and he thought it was already over. I know by the end of this day, it will be over.
What did I do wrong? I thought that I was different from the other guys she's dated. I thought Jo loved me. But now she was going to break up with me, and go on to the next guy. I guess she's bored of me now.
So, there goes my relationship with Jolina Fieran. Because just like the other guys, I can't keep her for more than two weeks.
Jo and I are sitting in the Room of Requirement like we always do after lessons. But this time something is different. It could be the fact that I'm waiting for her to break up with me, but I can't be fully sure.
We're sitting in silence, looking everywhere but at eachother. Finally, I can't stand it anymore.
"Look if you're gonna break up with me, will you do it already?!" I stared at Jo. We both had said the exact same thing.
"I'm not breaking up with you." Jo said. "Why would you think that?"
I sighed. "I don't know. You always break up with guys after two weeks. I-I was..." I couldn't finish.
Jo grabbed my hand. "You were what?" I shook my head. "Please tell me." She said softly.
"I was scared, all right?" I admitted. "I was scared that I wasn't good enough for you, and that you didn't love me anymore. I thought I was going to lose you."
"Draco, you're not going to lose me." She said. "I love you. And two weeks isn't going to change that. Honestly, I thought you were going to break up with me..."
"What? Why?" I asked surprised.
"Because you said so yourself I can't stay in a relationship to save my life. And I thought you were bored with me."
"Jo, love, I could never get bored of you. I love you so much, and I want this relationship to last forever. It's all I've ever wanted."
She smiled. "Me too."
"Well, then let's make it last." I said leaning in to kiss her.
We stayed up all night, just waiting for the day to be over. When the clock stoke twelve, Jo kissed me passionately.
"You, Draco Malfoy are the first guy I've ever been with longer than two weeks." She whispered, beaming.
"And you, Jolina Fieran are the only girl I want to be with for the rest of my life." I whispered back, meaning every word.
"Well, then the rest of my life sounds pretty damn amazing."
"No, the rest of our life sounds pretty damn amazing."
I didn't care where my life went. As long as Jo was there, I would be happy.
Well, things seem fine and dandy for Jo and Draco. But that won't last very long with Pansy investigating, will it? No, it won't. In the next chapter, things start to fall apart, can Jo and Draco stay together? You'll find out. Thanks for reading. :)
