Background:   Font color:  

The next morning, I woke up with a skip in my step. The first day of school is always a drag, but with my new friends, it seemed to be even better. I changed into my robes and then walked down to breakfast. To my surprise, I found Draco and Blaise waiting for me at the bottom of the Grand Staircase. I smiled at them, and then as I got closer to them, Draco pulled me into a hug. Damn, Draco smells good. I think Blaise knew what I was thinking because he shook his head and chuckled. I stuck my tongue out at him which made him chuckle even more. We walked into the Great Hall and Draco led me to the Sytherin table. I was a little hesitant, but Draco reassured me that I was one of them now, and I felt better. When I sat down, all the Sytherins looked at me with amazement and disgust. Draco threw them all a threatening glare that basically said, ‘You insult her, and you die.’ I laughed a little and began to eat breakfast. Then, I saw Harry come into the Hall and noticed him looking around for me. He saw me sitting next to Draco, and glared at me. I gave him a threatening look back, and he seemed to back off. Draco must’ve noticed too because as Harry sat down at our house table, he shot him a glare. Then, Pansy came running up to us. Once she saw me, she threw me a glare and went back where she came from.

When Draco and I were done eating, we went into the Entrance Hall. “What’s your first lesson?” he asked.

I looked at my schedule. “Charms, then I go to Transfiguration.” 

“Okay, well, I’ll pick you up at Charms and take you to Transfiguration. What do you have after that?”

“A free period.”

He smirked. “I guess I can skip Herbology for today.”

“No you won’t! Draco, I don’t want to be the reason for your suffering grades!” He scoffed, which made me laugh.

“My suffering grades? Ha! My grades don’t suffer!”

“I know, but it doesn’t feel right to make you skip a class!” Draco sighed.

“Alright, well fine. Come on, I’ll walk you to Charms.” He took my bag off my shoulder and put it on his. I raised my eyebrow at him.

“I can carry my own stuff, you know.”

He smiled. “Well, I can be a gentleman if I want to be.”

I laughed. “Okay, Mr. Gentleman!” He laughed and then proceeded to drop my bag with everything falling out.

“Oh my God, I’m sorry!” I started to laugh hysterically as I went on the floor to pick up my stuff.

“It’s okay; I guess I’m not the only one who’s a complete klutz.” He smiled, and I thought I saw a hint of a blush on his cheeks. When we got to my Charms class, I said bye, but before I could get away, he pulled me into a tight hug. Is it possible for him to smell better than earlier? I smiled up at him, and let me go.

“I’ll see you after your lesson and walk you to McGonagall’s class!” He exclaimed as he ran off to his first class.

Charms class was really boring, and it seemed to drag on forever. Maybe it was because all I did all class was think about Draco. The way he smells, how his messy hair covered his eyes, how his harsh green eyes seemed to soften to kindness when looking at me. It was as if he could see through me and read my soul. God, Nat, snap out of it, he’s your friend for crying out loud! But he’s my very handsome friend. I started to daydream some more until Ginny wacked me in the elbow. “Ow! What was that for?” I whispered.

“You were daydreaming.”


“Well, you never do that in class. Is there something wrong?”


“Is there something you ladies would like to share?” Professor Flitwick asked. Ginny shook her head no, and Flitwick went back to teaching about some spell.

“What spell is he talking about?” I asked Ginny in a whisper. Ginny shrugged and I groaned to myself.

As I walked out of Charms, I saw Draco, right on cue, walking towards me. “Hey, how was class?”

I sighed. “Boring as hell. All Flitwick did was talk about some spell that I didn’t know.”

“What spell was it?”

“Like I said, I don’t know. I wasn’t paying attention.” I replied as Draco took my bag from me. I chuckled to myself as he did that. “So how was whatever class you were in?”

“Oh, Divination was a bore. Trelawney is such a fake. Did you take that class?”

“No, Harry told me it would be a waste of my time.” I replied. Draco sighed.

“I’m still thinking about skipping Herbology. I mean, it’s not like it is important or anything.”

I laughed. “Do whatever you want, I don’t care. It’s not like I could stop you if you made up your mind.” Draco looked at me, puzzled.

“This morning you said that you didn’t want me to skip, and now you don’t care? What changed?”

I smiled. “I’m a mystery.” He smirked as I said that. “By the way,” I said. “How did you get from Divination to Charms in a matter of a minute?” He smiled devilishly.

“I snuck out early. Trelawney didn’t even notice. She was too focused on lecturing about the Inner Eye and how it important it was. I didn’t find it that important.” I groaned, and Draco laughed at me. “I guess you don’t like me leaving classes early either, huh?” I rolled my eyes, as he laughed some more.

Transfiguration was a bit more interesting, yet I found myself daydreaming about Draco again; his hair, his eyes, his laugh, how he tries to be a gentleman, and his smile. Snap out of it! He’s your friend! You’re starting to sound like Pansy! Comparing myself to Pansy seemed to wake me up, and I paid attention the rest of class. After Transfiguration, I saw Draco standing outside the classroom. I groaned at him as he put his hand up in surrender.

“Hey, I didn’t leave early this time. In Potions, Longbottom had an accident again, and we were let out early. It was Snape.” I smiled as he took my bag again.

“So, are you skipping Herbology?”

“Do you want me to?”

“I told you I didn’t care.”

“It would make it easier for me if you told me what you thought.” I sighed, and felt stupid at myself for saying what I was about to say.

“Part of me wants you to go to Herbology, and a bigger part of me wants you to skip it.” Draco smiled.

“What part do you want me to listen to?”

“The part that says skip class.” Draco laughed as he pulled me into a hug. Now he smells even better! How does that happen?

“So where do you spend your free periods?” he asked.

“Well, I usually go to the library to do homework, but I don’t have any. I also go to the common room, but you’re not allowed in there. So, where do you want to go?”

“Well, it’s nice outside, so why don’t we go to the lake?” I looked at him as if he was stupid.

“You’re supposed to be in Herbology, remember? What if Professor Sprout sees you?” Draco laughed at his stupidity.

“Well, why don’t we go to the Room of Requirement? Nobody can find us there.” I agreed, and we made our way to the come-and-go room.
