A/N: Hey guys! I hope you liked the last chapter! Sorry about the long awaited update. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this chapter and for my friend Spaz, some funny stuff happens at the beginning! See you at the end of the chapter!!!
Weeks went by and January came to a close. February began and everybody started to get anxious because the second task was approaching. Also, Valentine’s Day was coming up and people were sending each other cards and asking each other out on dates. I didn’t know if Draco and I were celebrating it. Would we do something? Is he keeping it a secret like he did for the ball? I figured I would ask him the week before because that was when the annual card-giving week was.
Draco and I were walking to breakfast Monday morning, and I thought it was appropriate to ask him. “Draco?”
“Are we going to do anything for Valentine’s Day?”
“If you want to.”
“Then what do you want to do?”
“We could go to Hogsmeade.”
“We could; as long as we stay far away from Puddifoot’s. That place sickens me.” He laughed and wrapped his arm around my waist.
“Alright, Hogsmeade it is!” We sat down at the table across from our friends, and Blaise had this stupid grin on his face. “What are you smiling at?” Draco asked.
“Oh, nothing; just the fact that you have at least fifty Valentine cards.”
“WHAT?!” I exclaimed. Blaise laughed.
“That was the reaction I was hoping for from you, Nat.” I glared at him and his grin quickly disappeared and he cleared his throat. He handed Draco the cards wordlessly. He started looking through them and then laughed out loud.
“Oh my Merlin, listen to this. ‘Dear my dearest Draco,’ he read. ‘I have watched you from afar for many months now and I would like to say that I love you more than life itself. Would you do me the honor of spending the day at Hogsmeade with me on Valentine’s Day? We could do whatever you like, and maybe I could steal a kiss or two. Please let me know as soon as you can. Love, Isabelle. P.S. You’re a great kisser by the way.’ How would this chick know how good of a kisser I am?” I took in a sharp breath. “What is it Nat?”
“Don’t you realize that the Isabelle who wrote this is the girl who kissed you at the ball?” He looked back at the letter and reread it.
“It makes sense, doesn’t it?”
“Of course it makes sense!” I exclaimed. He looked at me and raised his eyebrows. I faked a smile and he went back to looking through all the cards he received. “Oh, here’s another one….” I tuned him out and got a pastry for breakfast.
“Are you Natalie Potter?” some first year asked. I nodded, she handed me a card, and ran off. I almost choked as I read the card:
Thanks for the help with the Potions assignment; I think I passed it. Anyway, I really like you and I wanted to know if maybe you would like to have dinner at the Three Broomsticks on Valentine’s Day with me. I think we could really hit it off. Let me know as soon as you can, my little Nati-boo.
I looked over at the Gryffindor table and saw Colin looking at me, smiling. “Hey Colin!” I yelled over at him. He straightened up and anticipated my answer. I held the card up so he could see it and ripped it in half. He bit his lip and ran out of the Great Hall.
“What was that about?” Draco asked.
“Colin sent me a Valentine card asking me out to dinner and I declined.” I replied, not looking at him.
“Look at me.” I sighed and looked at him. He studied my face with concern filling his eyes. “What’s bugging you?” I rolled my eyes and started to get up from the table, but he grabbed my wrist holding me back. “Is it the card from Isabelle?” I looked down at the floor, finding my shoes very interesting at the moment. “Look Nat, how many times do I have to tell you that there’s no reason to feel insecure?” I bit my lip and didn’t answer him. He sighed and got up from the table. He lifted my chin so I could look into his eyes. “Nat, please believe me.”
“I do, Dray. It’s just it gets harder and harder each time she pops up.” He pulled me into a hug.
“I know, love. Come on, do you want me to walk you to class?” I smiled and took his hand as we headed out the hall. On our way out, we ran into Ginny.
“Hey Nat!” she exclaimed. I ignored her and Draco and I kept walking.
“Are you still not talking to her?” Draco asked.
“No.” We walked in a comfortable silence the rest of the way to the Charms classroom.
“Alright love, I’ll meet you in my room after classes are done, okay?”
“Won’t I see you at lunch?”
“No sorry. I have some things to do.”
“Just some things; like I have to make that French girl see that I do not want her. I also have a surprise for you.” I rolled my eyes.
“Yes, it is my turn.” I laughed and he kissed me and ran off to his class.
I was walking to lunch and saw that Isabelle chick coming towards me with a gang of girls following. “Draco Malfoy is mine!” she exclaimed. I placed my hands on my hips and glared at her.
“I believe I’m his girlfriend.”
“What does he see in you? Your hair is an ugly shade of red and you are definitely not the skinniest girl in the world. Your skin is sort of pale too. What could a gorgeous guy like him see in a girl like you?”
“Looks aren’t everything, you know. Maybe it’s the fact that I have personality and you don’t.” I smiled triumphantly and walked away as it looked like she could have killed me right there. I didn’t get even a few feet away from her when I felt something hit my back and fell to the ground.
My eyes fluttered open and they were hit by a bright light. I shut my eyes tight again and shifted to get more comfortable. “Oh thank Merlin you’re awake.” I heard a distinct voice say. I snapped my eyes open and saw Draco sitting in a chair with relief written all over his expression.
“Draco? Where am I? What happened?”
“You’re in the Hospital Wing. You were hit with a spell. Madame Pomfrey said it would be a miracle if you ever woke up.” I sat up suddenly and felt very dizzy. I tried to ignore it, but it just got to be too much so I laid back down. Draco got up from the chair and kissed my forehead. “I’m going to go tell Promfrey you’re awake. I’ll be right back.” Within a minute, the nurse came running to me and told me to drink a potion she had in her hand. I swigged it and handed it back to her.
“You are very lucky, Miss Potter. Not too many people wake up after they’ve been hit with that spell.”
“What spell was it exactly?”
“It’s a French invention. It makes a person go unconscious to a point where it is almost impossible to wake up.” She walked away after telling me I could leave when I wanted to.
“Who hexed you?” Draco asked. I shook my head and sighed.
“I don’t really remember-wait, it was that Isabelle girl!” His jaw clenched and he looked like he could kill her if she walked into the room. “Dray, please calm down. It was no big deal.”
“No big deal?! No big deal?! Of course it was a big deal! She attacked you and I could’ve lost you!” I closed my eyes and sighed. When I opened them, I saw Draco walking fast out of the wing. I got up from the bed and ran after him. I tried to stop him from doing anything rash, but I knew it was hopeless once he saw Isabelle going into the Great Hall. “Hey Isabelle!” She turned around and smiled, but it quickly went away once she saw me.
“Oh, so you survived. What a shame. I thought with you gone, I could get Draco here to go on that date with me.” I moved my arm up to punch her, but Draco put his arm in front of me.
“What makes you think I’d want a snob like you? I don’t even know you. All I know is that you’ve tried to break me and my girlfriend, who I love more than anything in the world, up on several occasions. I wouldn’t trade Natalie for any girl!” I blushed a bit and Draco looked at me and smiled.
“I’m so much prettier than she is though!” Isabelle exclaimed.
“No, you’re not.” Draco replied instantly. Isabelle’s eyes started to tear up and she ran away.
I saw the victorious smile on Draco’s face, and then remembered something. “Draco, how long was I unconscious?” He thought it over for a minute.
“About a week.” I looked at him dumbfounded.
“What day is today?”
“Thursday; the day before Valentine’s Day.” I was still staring at him and he chuckled. “What’s wrong love?”
“It’s the day before Valentine’s Day! That’s what’s wrong! I haven’t gone out and gotten anything ready!” He laughed at me.
“It’s alright love. I have something planned for you. All you have to do is show up looking beautiful.”
“Oh Merlin, I don’t have anything to wear!” I exclaimed. He laughed again.
“You could show up in pajamas with bedhead and you would still look beautiful.” I grimaced. “Do you want to get something to eat?”
“Yes, I’m rather hungry, but I don’t want to face everybody in the Great Hall just yet. Could we maybe go to the kitchens?” He smiled.
“Of course we can love.” He led me down to the fruit painting and we walked in to be greeted by Eloise.
“Hello Miss Natalie and Mr. Draco! What can I do for you?” she exclaimed in her squeaky voice.
“Can we have some food?” Draco asked. “We’ve missed breakfast.”
“Oh, and Eloise, could you get me something small like a cinnamon bun? I’m not all that hungry.” I said. She nodded and ran off.
“You’re not that hungry?” Draco asked in disbelief. “You haven’t eaten in a week!”
“I’m not that much of a breakfast person.” He shrugged and we sat down at the small table. I groaned.
“I just realized; I’m going to have a lot of homework to make up!” He laughed.
“No, not really. I went and talked to the professors for you to see what you missed. You have an essay for Snape and an essay for McGonagall.”
“When don’t I have one from her?” He smiled. “So, I just have two essays to write? That’s it?” He nodded, which made me smile.
After we were done with breakfast, Draco walked me to Charms, but I didn’t want to go. “Dray, I don’t want to go!” I whined for the umpteenth time. He stopped walking and looked at me.
“Then what is it you want?” I put my arms around his waist and looked up at him.
“You.” He chuckled and kissed me lightly on the nose.
“As much as I want you too, we got to go to class.” I smirked.
“What happened to bad boy Malfoy?” He laughed.
“Come on, love.” I groaned as he led me to my ultimate doom.
All my classes were horrible. My classmates would come up to me and talk to me like I was five. They would speak slowly and made sure that they annunciated every syllable clearly. They treated me like I was some mentally-ill person. I hated it. I started to walk up to Draco’s room after Herbology and ran into none other than Pansy. “So, I see Isabelle didn’t get rid of you. I’m going to have to talk to her about that.” Then, she walked away. I stood in the corridor dumbfounded. Pansy sent Isabelle out to get rid of me? So, did Isabelle really like Draco or was that a cover story? I decided to not focus on that at the moment and focus on Draco and what we were going to do tonight; and more importantly, what he planned for me for tomorrow.
I opened the door and Draco wasn’t in there. Instead of going to search for him, I just plopped myself on the bed. I didn’t realize how tired I was until I felt myself falling asleep.
I was sitting in the parlor reading the Daily Prophet when I heard loud footsteps in the hallway. “Mother!!” Scorpius yelled.
“What is it Scorp?” I asked tiredly. I had just spent the whole day at St. Mungo’s working in the ICU.
“Mum, can Lydia come over tomorrow and hang out?” he asked after coming in the room and leaning on the doorframe.
“If Blaise and Rose say it’s okay.”
“Oh, they said it’s perfectly fine. So, can she come over? Please?!” I couldn’t help but laugh.
“Yes, she can. But you know, for a girl you claim just to be best friends with and nothing more, you do want to see her every day of your life. You talk about her non-stop as well.” He rolled his eyes.
“Mum, she’s my friend and nothing more. We don’t like each other that way; even Lydia will tell you that.” I shook my head as he went back upstairs, and I went back to read my paper; only to be interrupted again.
“What is it Lils?”
“When can I go over Zack’s?” I sighed.
“I have absolutely no idea. Go talk to your father.”
“He’s at work.” I looked up at her.
“He left about an hour ago. It was at least twenty minutes before you came home.” I sighed.
“Well, just talk to your father when he gets home.”
“But Mum! He’s my boyfriend and I miss him!”
“Lily, you just got home from school. It hasn’t even been a week yet.”
“You let Scorpius see Lydia whenever he wants!”
“Yes, that’s because I know her parents. I haven’t once yet meet Zack’s parents, have I?” She groaned and stomped out of the room.
“You’re such a kill joy!” she screamed.
All of a sudden the kids and I were in the kitchen. The man came rushing into the kitchen, casting killing curses everywhere. “Please, have mercy!” I yelled. The green light flashed and hit Lily. “NO!!!” Another curse hit Scorpius. “NO!” I cried. “DRACO! COME HOME!!! DRACO!!!!!!”
I was shaken awake and immediately jumped up into Draco’s arms. I cried as he held me, trying to calm me down. “Nat honey, what happened?”
“H-H-He came b-b-back! I don’t know why! I haven’t dreamed about him in a month!”
“Shh, it’s okay. They’re just dreams.” I clung onto him and he laid us down on the bed.
“They were older; they were in relationships, well Lily was. You were at work. He came back and I didn’t save them!” He rubbed my arm and I cuddled up to him more.
“It’s all going to be okay, love. You’ll see.” I shook my head and continued to cry. “Calm down; it’s over.”
“Make them stop, Dray.” I whispered.
“I wish I could sweetie. I wish I could take all the pain away.” I pressed my face into his chest and took in his scent. He smelled of aftershave, cologne, and a hint of pumpkin. “Do you want to go get dinner?” he asked. I shook my head no. “Do you want to rest in the hot tub for a while?” I looked up at him and nodded. He helped me out of bed and into the closet. I slipped on my bathing suit and he helped me into the hot tub. He started walking towards the door, but I spoke up before he could leave.
“Aren’t you coming in with me?”
“I will. But first I need to go do some things.”
“Can it wait until later? I need you to hold me right now.” He nodded and stripped down to his boxers. He climbed in and sat next to me. He put his arms around me and kissed my temple. “Thank you.” I said quietly.
“Anything for you Nat.”
The next morning I woke up in bed with Draco holding me protectively. How I had gotten there, I have absolutely no idea. My mind was a blank. All of a sudden, I was hit with a huge pain in my back. “OW!” I exclaimed. Draco’s arm moved like rapid speed to turn me around and I was looking at him. His eyes were filled with worry and concern.
“I just got this sharp pain in my back.”
“Was that where you were hit with the spell?” I nodded, and he let out a huge breath of relief.
“That happens when you get hit with a spell. It’s nothing to worry about and probably won’t happen again.” I cuddled up to him and he began rubbing my back.
“I wish they would cancel classes on Valentine’s Day.”
“Why’s that?” Draco asked.
“So I wouldn’t have to leave you.” He kissed the top of my head and sighed.
“Well, I do have a big night planned for us, so that’s something to look forward to.”
“Yeah, it’s probably the only thing that can get me through today.”
“Is there something you’re not telling me love?” I sighed.
“I don’t want to face people today.”
“Because of yesterday. People treated me like I was just released from a mental institution.”
“Love, you were in a coma for a week.”
“What’s your point? They still shouldn’t treat me that way!” He sighed and pulled me out of bed with him.
“Now go get ready and then we’ll go to the Great Hall for breakfast. And don’t even try to talk me out of it because we are going.” I glared at him and went into the bathroom. I took a quick shower, got dressed, brushed my hair, and did my makeup. I was done within twenty minutes, but I just sat in the bathroom hoping Draco would think I’m still getting ready which would cause us to miss breakfast. After five minutes, he knocked on the door.
“I’m still getting ready!” I said. I heard him chuckle and then the door opened. He stood there and gave me an amused glare.
“You’re really trying to make us late, aren’t you? Well, that won’t happen because now that you’re ready we can leave.” He walked up to me, grabbed my hand, and tried to pull me towards the door. But I wouldn’t budge. He turned back around and grabbed my other hand as well and pulled me towards him. I allowed him to do that, but before I could break his grasp, he pulled me out of the room and out to the common room; never taking his eyes off of me. “See that wasn’t so bad, was it?” he asked, partly amused. I glared at him and then we made our way to the Great Hall.
When we walked into the Great Hall, the first thing that struck me was that it was completely pink. The walls were pink, the tables were pink, and there were a bunch of pink and red hearts floating around. We sat down at our normal spots, but Blaise and Rose weren’t there. “I wonder where they are.” Draco shrugged and started piling food on my plate. “What are you doing?”
“Getting you breakfast.”
“I’m not going to eat that much!” I said as I grabbed a piece of toast and buttered it. He shrugged and took the plate for himself. A few minutes later, Blaise and Rose sat down. “Where have you two been?” I asked. Blaise smiled and Rose blushed. “Or should I ask what have you been doing?” Rose blushed even more and Draco and Blaise laughed. I shook my head and got up from the table. “Draco, will you walk me to class?”
“You didn’t even have to ask.” Draco replied as he got up as well. “Bye guys.” We walked out of the hall hand in hand.
After classes were over, I ran into the Sytherin common room to find Rose. She wasn’t there, so I checked her dormitory to see her lying in her bed reading a book. “Quick! I need to borrow some of your clothes for tonight!”
“Well hello to you too.” she replied as she went over to her closet. She handed me a blue, one-shouldered sweater dress. I threw it on and ran over to the mirror and gasped.
“Oh Merlin, it’s gorgeous! Thanks Rose!” She laughed.
“No problem. Do you want me to do your hair and makeup too? After all, you have to look beautiful for Draco.” I smiled.
“That’d be great, thanks!” I followed her into the bathroom and she sat me down on the little chair that was in there. She took out her wand and put soft curls in my hair. “What spell did you use?” I asked. She smiled.
“I have a book on all these beauty spells. I’ll let you borrow it sometime.” I nodded and then she proceeded to do my hair and makeup. When I looked in the mirror after she was done, I smiled widely. Rose had put white eye shadow, pink blush, and a clear lip gloss on me. I jumped up and hugged her tightly.
“Thanks!” She laughed.
“So, are you and Blaise doing anything tonight?” I asked as we walked back to her bed. She sighed.
“No, I don’t think so. He hasn’t mentioned Valentine’s Day at all.” I looked at her in confusion.
“Yeah, he told me in December that he wanted to do something for me, but he hasn’t mentioned it since.”
“Well then what happened this morning?” She sighed happily.
“It was one of the most amazing kisses ever!” I laughed. “But seriously, Blaise has sort of seemed distant from me lately.”
“Maybe he’s still trying to keep up with his schoolwork. Draco and I had been distant for at least a week last month.”
“Well, yeah I know that. We were distant that same week, but now it’s like he wants to be away from me. I don’t get it.”
“Have you talked to him about it?” She shook her head no. “I think you should talk to him.” She sighed.
“You’re right.” I hugged her and got up to leave.
“Well, I better get going. Draco wanted me to meet him in his room at six.”
“Wait! You need shoes!” I laughed at her and then she handed me a pair of black flats. I slipped them on and started to walk out the door, until Rose said something to make me stop again. “I expect those clothes back in my closet by tomorrow afternoon.” I smiled and nodded and made my way out. I walked through the common room to the other side and was walking down the corridor to Draco’s room when a tall, black haired guy walked up to me.
“Hello gorgeous. I don’t think we’ve met. I’m Nate Hemmington. And you are?” he asked seductively.
“Shove off!” I exclaimed as I tried to get passed him, but he pinned me against the wall.
“Oh no. Nobody talks to Nate like that.” I rolled my eyes.
“Are you so conceded that you have to talk about yourself in third person?” He laughed as he leaned down to kiss me and I turned away. "I don’t think my boyfriend would appreciate it if you tried this.”
“He doesn’t have to know.” I widened my eyes and slapped him across the face. I took advantage of his shock and ran the rest of the way to Draco’s room. I opened the door and saw Draco sitting on the bed.
“Sorry, Rose was helping me get ready.” He smiled and came over to me. He leaned down to kiss me, but I turned away and he ended up kissing my cheek. He furrowed his eyebrows.
“What’s wrong?” I bit my lip. “Nat, please tell me.”
“Okay, as long as you promise not to do anything. I don’t want to ruin this night.”
“I promise.” I sighed.
“I was walking here from Rose’s room and this Nate guy comes up and flirts with me. He tried to kiss me so I slapped him and ran away.”
“Nate Hemmington?” I nodded and his jaw clenched.
“I’m not going to do anything. I’m just peeved. He’s trying to steal you from me.” I looked at him confused. He sighed. “Nate has always had to outdo me; especially when it came to girls. I would talk to a group of three girls; he would have to have six. I would hang out with them; he’d have to make out with them. And now he’s trying to steal my girlfriend.” I shook my head.
“But he won’t.” He smiled and kissed my forehead. “You know, I’m thinking we could set Isabelle and Nate up. I mean, they could make a great couple.” He laughed and pulled me out of the room.
“So where are we going?” I asked as we made our way from the dungeons to the main floor. Draco smiled.
“You’re just going to have to wait and see.” I groaned and he led me outside to the Quidditch pitch. He grabbed a broom and got on it. He motioned for me to get on in front of him. I obliged and his arm snaked its way around my waist. He took off with incredible speed and I couldn’t help but yelp. “You’re supposed to be a Chaser, how on earth could you be scared?” he asked in my ear.
“I didn’t expect you to go that fast!” He laughed. We flew a long ways until Draco made a quick dive that also caught me off guard. But when I looked down, I didn’t see the ground; I saw water. I quickly hid my face into his chest and I felt him chuckle.
I don’t know how much longer we were in the air, but after what seemed like forever, Draco told me to put my feet in landing position and I felt solid ground. I still was clinging onto him for dear life which made him laugh. “Come on, love.” he said as he got off the broom. I hurried off and he threw the broom away. He took my hand and I followed him as he started walking. Once I finally got over the shock of landing, I began to take in my surroundings. We were on an island that seemed to be in the middle of the ocean. There were few trees and it was an open beach. There was an elegant looking beach house towards the back of the beach and near the shore was a picnic blanket with a basket and some butterbeers on it. “Welcome to our island.” Draco said in my ear. I looked at him in disbelief.
“Our island?” He nodded.
“Everything you see belongs to us.” I widened my eyes.
“Draco….” He laughed.
“It’s a gift from my parents.”
“Well, more so my mother. She thought we should have a place all to ourselves where nobody could bother us.” I smiled and we sat down on the blanket. “So do you want to eat now?” I nodded and he opened the picnic basket and got out a few sandwiches and some fruit. He also got two glasses and poured butterbeer in them. He handed me my glass. “Happy Valentine’s Day, Natalie.” The way he said my name made me go weak at the knees and I couldn’t find the words to form a coherent sentence so I just smiled and nodded.
After we were finished with dinner, I was sitting in between Draco’s legs and we were watching the sunset. “Shouldn’t we be getting back?” I asked.
“Not unless you want to stay here tonight.” I looked up at him.
“Are we even allowed?”
“I talked to Dumbledore and he said it was fine.” I smiled.
“Then we’ll stay.” He smiled back and kissed me. It was a soft, tender kiss and it was so full of passion. I didn’t feel the urge to deepen it, so I just enjoyed the feeling of his lips on mine. We broke apart and Draco’s eyes were intensely staring at me; it was like he could see into my soul.
“I love you.” he said.
“I love you too.” He kissed my forehead and sighed.
“What did I ever do to deserve you?”
“I could ask the same question.” He chuckled.
“Come on, do you want to see our new house?” I nodded and jumped up to stand.
“Race you there?” I asked, feeling like a ten year old. He laughed and stood up.
“On the count of three. One….Two…..” Before he even said three, I took off. “Hey!” I heard him exclaim but I kept running. Apparently he caught up to because I felt arms going around my waist. He started nibbling at my ear and neck. “This cheater needs to be punished.” I giggled.
“Oh really? And how do you plan to punish her?”
“Mmm, I don’t know; maybe a life sentence.”
“A life sentence to do what? I don’t recall her doing anything wrong.” He started kissing at spots behind my ear and neck which made me lose all sense of the world.
“She has to be mine and love me forever and always.” I giggled.
“I think that’s already covered.” He stopped kissing me and spun me around. I saw the lust in his eyes as he leaned down to kiss me on the lips.
“I absolutely love kissing you.” he mumbled.
“Same here.” We broke apart and he took my hand and led me into the house.
The house was absolutely gorgeous, although I expected it to be much bigger since it belonged to a Malfoy. There was a small kitchen with a breakfast nook and across from was a living room with a couch, loveseat, coffee table, and rocking chair. The dining room was through a doorway to the right of the living room and had a table with eight chairs around it. A powder room was to the left of the living room. It was all open and in the daytime, the sun would shine and light up the whole floor. Upstairs, there were three rooms. One was a bathroom with a shower. Another was a small, empty room. It could be turned into anything. At the very end of the hall was a pair of big oak doors. Draco opened them and I gasped. Right in the middle of the room was a king-sized bed. Beyond that there were glass doors and a balcony that looked out to the ocean. There also was a vanity, I assumed for me, and a walk in closet. If I thought Draco’s closet back at Hogwarts was big, this was at least ten times bigger.
“Do you like it?” Draco asked.
“No, I absolutely love it!” I exclaimed. He chuckled.
“I thought you would.” he said as he wrapped his arms around my waist from behind and kissed the top of my head.
“I still can’t believe this is all ours.”
“Well it is. Do you want to get ready for bed?” I nodded. He led me to the closet and showed me where all my stuff was. My clothes took up at least half of the closet. “You can thank Mother for that.” Draco said as he saw my expression. I grabbed a pair of pajamas and walked out of the room to the bathroom to shower.
The water was nice and relaxing as I let it play over my body. After I made sure I was completely clean, I turned off the shower, dried myself off, and changed into my nightclothes. I walked back into the bedroom to find Draco standing on the balcony looking stressed. I walked over to him and put my hand on his shoulder. He was very tense, but seemed to relax at my touch. “Draco?” He sighed and handed me a piece of parchment. I read it, and couldn’t believe my eyes.
Stop this nonsense and end things with the Potter girl. You should be with Pansy. At first, I thought this was a phase of yours, but now that I heard that your mother has given you two our island, I am very disappointed in you. She’s our enemy, Draco! She cannot be trusted! Listen to reason and I expect an answer back that says you’ve ended things. Go to Pansy; love her like you should.
“W-What right does he have to tell you how to live your life?” I asked. I was really scared and hoped that Draco wouldn’t listen to his father. Draco seemed to pick up on that and pulled me into a tight hug.
“I love you Nat.”
“D-Do you care what he thinks?” He pulled back and looked at me with those grey eyes of his.
“No, not in the slightest.” I nodded and he pulled me closer to him. All I could think about was Lucius. What would he do when Draco tells him that he won’t break up with me? Will he torture him like I read in the journal?
“Am I still coming to your house for Easter?”
“Of course you are.”
“But your dad doesn’t like me. How do you know he won’t try and do something?” He sighed.
“I won’t let him touch you.”
"But what about you? He could torture you again…”
“Nat, please let’s forget about it for now and enjoy ourselves.” I nodded and he led me over to the bed to lie down. I put my head on his chest as I’ve done many times and he kissed the top of my head. “Get some sleep. I love you.”
“I love you too.” As soon I said those words, I was fast asleep.
A/N: So, what did you think? How did you like the island? What about Lucius and his demand for Draco to break up with Nat? What about Isabelle? And why could Blaise be so distant from Rose? I want to hear from you guys so don’t forget to drop a review! Also, I’m starting a new book about Lily/James and I ask all of you to read it!!! It would mean so much to me!
