I wake up and yawn. I immediately know I'm not in my own bed. I look around at the familiar place I'd woken up countless times before. Something about this time felt different, it was better. My head rested on someone's bare chest, I sighed happily and kissed their chest softly.
I looked up and saw Draco Malfoy looking down at me smiling. "Good morning, babe." He said.
"Good morning, hun." I responded, also smiling. He kissed my forehead.
"Was it me, or was last night just the most amazing sex ever?" He asked.
"It was the most amazing sex ever." I said chuckling. We laid there in silence for a seconds. Enjoying the moment together.
"Hey,guess what?" I said.
"What?" Draco asked.
"I love you." I whispered.
"I don't ever think I will get tired of hearing you say that." He said.
"I don't think I'll ever get tired of saying that." I said. Again we were silent. I liked that we didn't necessarily have to talk. Just being with eachother was enough.
"How did this happen?" I asked suddenly. Thinking back, this honestly didn't make any sense. Draco and I had been torn and kept apart so many times, there's no way we could be together, but somehow we were.
"I don't know, but I'm glad it did." Draco said.
"Me too." I smiled.
"You hungry?" He asked.
After locating our clothes, we walked down to the Great Hall. We held hands, not caring who the hell saw us. But, just like all the other times, the Slytherins had already went down for breakfast anyways.
When we reached the doors of the Great Hall we stopped. "This is like a dream come true." Draco said.
"What is?" I asked looking at him.
"Walking into the Great Hall holding your hand and having everyone know that we're together." He said smiling.
I smiled back and we walked into the Great Hall together. There was immediate whispering when we walked in. I tried my best to ignore it, but I did hear pieces.
"Is that Aria and Malfoy together?!"
"I knew something was going on between them!"
"Has Aria lost her mind?!"
Draco walked me over to the Gryffindor table, where everyone but Harry and Hermione looked shocked. He kissed me softly and caressed my face with his hand. "I love you so much." He whispered.
"I love you too." I said much more loudly than he did. I wanted everyone to know I love Draco Malfoy. He smiled and kissed me again. Then he turned to Hermione.
"Thanks for the advice, Granger." He said.
"No problem." Hermione said smiling.
I looked between the two of them. "What advice?" I asked.
"Don't worry your pretty face about it." Draco said kissing me again, and then walking away.
I sat down next to Hermione. "What advice?" I asked again.
"Yesterday, before you sat down in Potions, I might have told Draco to win you back before it was too late." She said.
I hugged her. "Thank you." I said.
"You're welcome. I guess you decided Draco was worth it,huh?"
"Yeah, completely worth it. But I'm still terrified about actually falling in love with him." I admitted.
"Believe me," Harry said. "When it happens, nothing will ever compare." He looked at Hermione and she blushed.
"So, you're okay with me dating Draco, then Harry? I know you kind of hate him." I said.
"It's fine. If Hermione can tolerate him, then I can. And I'd rather you be with Malfoy than Ron, honestly." Harry said.
I looked over at Ron. He now hung out with Neville Longbottom. He seemed rather pissed about not being able to keep me and Draco apart.
I looked away, thinking about what would have happened, had Ron not cheated on me. Would I be sitting in the same spot? Would Hermione and Harry be together? Would I be with Draco? Probably not.
I shook my head, not wanting to think about that. I was happy with the way everything was right now. And I'd never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad Ron cheated on me. Or none of this would have happened.
If anyone would have asked me six months ago what would happen if your boyfriend cheated on you with your best friend, and you slept with your enemy? I would have never guessed it would result in love.
I looked at Draco and smiled. I couldn't wait to fall in love with him, I just knew it was going to be amazing.
"So, now your my girlfriend." Draco said. "What happens next?"
We sat by the lake with Harry and Hermione, who were currently kissing like there was no tomorrow, which, last time I checked,there was.
"Well, we get to know and like eachother's friends, meet eachother's families of course. Fall in love…"
"I'm already in love with you." He said.
I grabbed his hand. "I know, and I'm sorry I'm not there yet, but I will get there soon, I promise."
"I'll wait forever if I have to." Draco said smiling.
I kissed him. "Je t'aime." I said.
"What does that mean?" Draco asked.
I smiled. "It means 'I love you'."
"Hun, before you meet my family, you'll need to learn a little French. We kind of speak it alot." I said.
"Okay. Do you know where I can find a sexy French tutor on such short notice?" He asked, smirking.
I smiled. "I think I do. But, she's kind of expensive." I said.
"I have money." Draco said.
"She doesn't want money."
"Well, what does she want?" Draco asked.
"You." I said simply.
"Yep, she won't take anything else."
Draco kissed me and whispered "I won't take anything else, either."
I smiled. "So, anything I need to know before meeting your family?" I asked.
"I don't think so. As long as you're a pureblood everything is fine." He shrugged.
"Are you saying you wouldn't love me if I wasn't a pureblood?" I asked raising my eyebrows.
"Of course not. I'd love you even if you were a muggle." Draco said looking offended.
"Good just checking." I said. "What if your parents hate me?"
"They won't, they'll love you." He assured me.
"How do you know?" I asked.
"Because Jeta 'ime." Draco said, pronouncing it horribly. "Was that right?" He asked.
I chuckled. "It was close enough." I said leaning in to kiss him.
