“I heard what happened earlier,” The voice said, and this time I recognised who it was. He came and sat next to me, and for a minute or so neither of us said anything, just stared out onto the lake, him now too watching the beautiful rays of light entwine with each other in a synchronised motion. “And I think you should listen to me.” Scorpius.
He said it with a definite tone in his voice but my instincts told me that I paradoxically shouldn’t believe. I pushed them aside; my instincts had let me down too many a time before, this time I should listen not to what I automatically think I should do, but what seems like the best choice when I really think about it. I didn’t say anything, but continued to stare out to the lake, my knees wrapped in my arms.
“Rose, I didn’t hear what happened, I was there. I saw him do that to you and I then on knew you needed help,” He trailed off, strongly regretting those last words that came out of his mouth. Me, needing help?
“What do you mean, Malfoy? Me needing help, do you think I’m mad, do you think I am not fit to be with normal people? Rose Weasley, the girl who needed help,” I sneered before he could take the word back. At first, he didn’t relent to my statement, but just looked out upon the lake like I had been doing before. But then he turned to look at me.
“No, Rose, I do not think you need help like that, I didn’t mean to say it like that,” He started and I had to fight back the urge to snap a mean reply, “What I mean is you need to be happy again. You need to forget about what he did to you. You need to forget about those horrible words he said about you. You need to forget that he cheated on you. And I can help you,” He told me and believe it or not, I believed every word that came out of his mouth. Maybe it was because of his eyes, the way they seemed to look at me. They didn’t go through me, but more into me, they seemed to tell me something. And that was to trust him even though I hardly knew him well.
“How, how can you make me forget all of that?” I asked, but in fact it was more of a plea for answers. I wanted to forget everything that he had just described, I wanted to make the pain go away, to release my heart and stop what I was feeling. I wanted for it to stop and I wanted that now, so I waited for his response, and I knew that somehow, I would not regret it.
“Like this,” He said calmly. At first I was confused, those words he had said gave no answer. But that was until he gave me it himself. Just as I turned to see his face, something unexpected happened. Scorpius Malfoy leaned forward to kiss me. Thousands of thoughts raced round by brain, my first instinct was to rebel, to tell him no. But then, how would I improve the record of my failing love life and otherwise how could I forget? Instead of fighting back, I kissed him back.
I don’t know how long it was, probably just about fifteen seconds, until we pulled away. “Rose…I’m sorry…”He trailed off. We were both now looking out to the lake, the sparkling water was reflecting more light than ever, and more dancing patterns spiralled before us. We sat in silence for a few minutes, and I certainly didn’t know what I was thinking.
“It’s okay,” I said, hardly thinking. The truth was that I did not know what I really wanted. I felt slightly mad, though happier than I had been in months all at the same time, somehow mirroring each other in harmony. He looked at me, really looked at me. He looked into my eyes, he looked right to me, and it felt like I could see his whole life story in front of me by the way I looked at him.
“Rose. Rose…I…I love you.”
He had said it. I barely knew him. Of course I knew who he was but all I knew about him was that he was a sixth year like me, though in Slytherin. Some people had said he didn’t like Gryffindor’s, but now I don’t know what to believe.
“Okay,” I whispered, knowing it was a rubbish answer. Unsure I may be, but I owed him a proper reply. “I think…look…Scorpius,” It was the first time I said his first name to his face, “It could work. You and me.”
“Rose, are you serious?” he obliviously said to me. I nodded, well, this time I did listen to my instincts, and I knew that it would be okay.
“Yeah. I need to forget. And you can help me, I want to be with you,” I told him. He smiled.
