It was a warm summer night as I walked down the streets of London to reach my Soho destination. Isabel was waiting for me at her favorite club, where she knew the bouncer. We walked past the long line, lots of angry faces looking at us trying to figure out what made us so special that we didn’t have to stand in line. Isabel hugged her friend who she called Tiny even though he was far from tiny. The music was bumping as we walked up the steps and into the packed club. I could feel it ion my chest.
Isabel had me by the hand so she wouldn’t lose me in the crowd of dancing people on the dance floor, she walked me right to the red velvet roped area and there we met her other friend Gino. He was a tall Italian man wearing an all back suit. She wrapped her arms around him and he kissed her first the lips, then the neck, and back again, she then yelled at the top of her lungs “This is my girl, Hermione, make sure she has a good time and give her anything she wants.” She winked and I smiled up to the gorgeous man. He kissed my hand, and then he showed us to a corner table. Isabel ordered a bottle of something and turned to me
“I’m so glad you finally wanted to come and see my world” Isabel said as she threw her long golden blonde hair over her shoulder
I smiled at her “me too”
“I’ll make you forget about whatever has you so upset”
“And why do you think I’m upset?” I said having to almost scream over the music
“Because, I’ve been trying to get you to come out with me for years, ever since we met all those years ago at the bookshop”
Luckily, our drinks had come; a big bottle of vodka and an assortment bottles of mixers; orange and cranberry juice, some club soda and lime and lemon wedges. Isabel put ice in two glasses and made our drinks.
Before, I knew it we were on our third drink and was being pulled out on the dance floor. Isabel was an American with long golden blonde straight hair. She was whipping her hair back and forth to the music as she took my hand and pulling me around the dance floor. How she could dance with her tiny shiny gold dress without it showing her bum or her falling off her super high heel was completely beyond me. I did the best I could as she twirled me around the floor, the music was good, but the lights were a little too much, they changed colors, flashed brightly and sometimes even went with the beat of the song.
“Isabel, I need to sit down, let’s have another drink.” I yelled to her as she spun me around for the hundredth time. She nodded and gave me the one minute sign, she got side tracked by a handsome dark hair man, he walked right up to her and they started dancing with each other holding on each other tightly. I walked over to Gino. He opened the rope and let me back into the VIP section. Just as I sat down the guy at the next table asked if he could pour me a drink, I looked up at him and recognized him right away.
His black jacket lay over the chair next to him, his green sleeveless shirt was showing off his big tattooed biceps. His hair was jet black hair was slicked back and he had that ever present cigarette in his mouth.
“Justice, what are doing here?” I said very astonished to see him at the same club I was.
“What fun would it be if I worked all the time?”
“But, how did you get into VIP?”
“I got friends too.” He said and gave Gino a wink to which he returned.
I smiled and clinked my glass with him. Just then Isabel came back and sat down next to mepanting.
“Who’s your friend?” she said as she turned and smiled at Justice
I leaned over close to her ear so she could hear me “His name is Justice and he an American too”
Her eyes lit up and she leaned over me to introduce herself to him. The next thing I knew she was dragging Justice on the dance floor “I love this song” I could hear her say over the music, he looked back at me and smiled before getting lost in the sea of people. I finished my forth drink and decided to go check out the bathroom. Gino again opened the red velvet rope and pointed me in the direction of the bathroom.
t wasn’t anything special, bunches of giggling girls crammed in front of the mirror, I check myself out in the mirror “not that bad” I thought as I added some red lipstick and ran my fingers through my hair to flatten it. I walked back out to the dance floor, tried to cross it, it took a few minutes of squeezing in between dancing people to make my way. When I finally made it through the dance floor, I tried to see if I could see Isabel still dancing with Justice, but instead my eyes caught a glimpse of Draco on the top of the steps, just then our eyes meet across the dance floor. It felt like time slowed down.
My jaw dropped he looked fabulous, he was wearing a shiny dark grey suit with a light blue button up shirt which was rolled to the elbows, his suit jacket thrown over his shoulder, his pale blonde hair was slightly disheveled. I couldn’t help it, I was so excited to see him, I ran right over to him, jumped up on to him wrapped my arms and legs around him, kissed his neck, then his cheek, then panted a passionate kiss on his lips. He ran his hands up and down my back. I couldn’t help but to smile.
“I’m so happy to see you. I how did you know I was here?”
“I didn’t.” He said with a smile that made my heart pound “But, I was coming here anyway.”
“You were, here, to this exact club?” I looked at him with a look of complete shock across my face.
“Yeah, Justice asked me to come here tonight, but why did you choose this club out of the all the others in London?” he asked
“Well, I had a huge fight and couldn’t stay at that house by myself, so I called Isabel and this her favorite, so here I am” Hermione shrugged her shoulders.
“For whatever the reason, you look f’ing amazing tonight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this side of you.” He took me by the hand and twirled me around like a ballerina in front of him so he could get a better look at the whole picture.
“And what side would that be?” I asked, threw him a big smile and led him to our table in VIP.
We walked up to the red velvet ropes, Draco and Gino greeting each other in the typical boy hand shake and was pulled into a hug by Gino. When, we sat down I asked “So, why did Justice pick out this club?”
“This is his club” he said nonchalantly, as he put his hand on my leg tracing circles with his index finger, little ones at first then into bigger one that just slipped under the hem of my dress. It excited me to no end being teased by him, he kissed my neck and I asked him .
“Would you like me to pour you a drink” but he just kept running his fingers up and down my thigh. I poured him a drink anyway, but had to ask “What do you mean his club?”
He pulled away from me but kept his hand on my thigh and said “It’s his, he owns it.”
I couldn’t help but to throw him a look of complete and utter surprise as I gave him his drink, he leaned in to me so he didn’t yell as much, his warm breath next to my ear sent shivers up and down my spine.
“Well, just after he graduated from school and before he went to school to become a watcher he kind of went sideways for a little bit. He left New York wanting to meet his father and he came here to England. It was right before the war, but before he met him, Sirius had died at the department of mysteries.”
I sat there and remembered that night when I saw him killed, I saw him be shot by the killing curse by his very own cousin and Draco’s aunt.
“Justice kind of lost it for a bit. I don’t blame him, I would of too if I came to England to meet my father and to find out that he had just been murdered and to feel like your place was taken by someone else.”
“You don’t mean Harry?”
Draco nodded yes to that “I’m not sure if he even knew he had children, especially not a son in the States, I mean Justice came for summers and all, but it was never explained to me who is his father was. Anyway, it wouldn’t have mattered, my parents, Aunt and Uncle hated him. Only my exiled aunt Andromeda was fond of him, but that’s not the point, is it?”
I sat there in a state of bewilderment as he told me this and had feelings of pity for Justice, never getting to meet his father, and I could understand that Justice must of felt horrible to find out that his father had a Godson and that he got to spend time with him when you didn’t get to.
“He did get a large sum of gold though from Sirius, but all Justice wanted to do was get fucked up and forget about it. So, instead of him ruining his life I helped him start this place. It took a while for us to get it started, well because of the war and stuff, but as soon as it ended it didn’t take long to get it up and running and it became a good place to go, as a distraction for us. It gave us something to do beside dwell on the past.”
“You helped him start this club?” I asked barely believing him
“Why is that so hard to believe?” exclaimed Draco. “I was a little messed up too after the war and needed something to take my mind off of everything that happened.”
“Draco, you did it again, you just keep on surprising me.” I batted my eyes at him, and then I leaned in, to kiss him, this time a bit deeper and longer. The drinks were setting in and I was feeling good for the first time all day. He smiled at me, took me by the hand, and led me out on the dance floor.
“Wow, Draco you got moves” I yelled over the music to him as he took me by the waist and moved me to the music, swinging our hips together to the beat of the song. It was then I saw Isabel looking in my direction with a huge smile on her face. She said something to Justice, he looked over at us and smiled too. I told Draco and he spun me around so I didn’t have to look at them anymore, now I could just look at him. We danced for a few more songs and went back to the table, both of us out of breath and ready for a drink.
Justice and Isabel were sitting there when we walked through the ropes holding hands. She looked at me and said “Bathroom NOW” She took my hand and pulled me towards the bathroom. I had no other option, but to let her drag me away from the table and Draco
Once safely in the bathroom she said “Ok spill it” it wasn’t as loud in there so we could talk easier
“Where to begin” I thought and said
“He’s hot Hermione, really hot, is he the reason why you’re not wearing your wedding rings.” I had almost forgotten that I didn’t have them on until she pointed it out to me. I then decided to spilled my guts to her and told her everything. I just needed to tell someone and I thought who else would be better, she didn’t know Ginny or Ron, so out came everything that had happened in the past few weeks, well almost everything I left out the part about being kidnapped. I told her about Ron being investigated by the U.S leaving out that it was Justice’s investigation, about him and that girl Sari, then about Draco coming into my life, how he made me feel and how it changed my life. It was probably the alcohol that helped me let my guard down and I told her these things and it felt good to get them off my chest.
“Damn, Hermione I like this new side of you. You’re much more fun like this. So, what do you know about Justice?” She said as she turned to look in the mirror and put on some pale pink lip gloss
“Well, he is a little older than I am, he lives in New York, he’s Draco cousin and” I knew she was going to love this part, “he owns this club”
But, I got interrupted before I could say anything else by Isabel eyes openning wide to show how bright blue they were “He owns the club!” she exclaimed
“Yep” I said while I nodded and smiled at her “Let’s get back out there before they get into too much trouble while we are gone.”
“Yea, I think I really like the new you.” She said as we walked back out into the packed club and we made our way across the dance floor. Justice and Draco were huddled talking when we walked up to the table. As we sat down Draco put his arm around me and handed me another drink.
“Excuse me, are you trying to get me drunk?” I said while laughing and rising my eyebrows
“Don’t think so, I think you have done a pretty good job of that yourself” and it was his turn to start laughing.
I leaned closed to Draco and pointed to Isabel and Justice “seems like they are hitting it off”
“Looks like it” he said
“She moves fast.” As I said that she threw a leg over him, sat on his lap, started to play with his hair and whispered in his ear that turned into kisses to his ear lobes, then his neck all the way to his lips.
“I think we should leave them for a few minutes.” I looked up into his deep shining blue eyes with my chocolate ones and fell into to them for a second “Can we do one more dance?”
“Yeah, we can do one more. I’ll get them to do a slow one, I want to hold you close” he said as he leaned close to my ear again giving me the same shivers like before.
Draco took me by the hand, we walked over to the DJ booth, and security let Draco into the booth without a hitch. I stood in awe and watched Draco give a special high five thingy, then pull the guy into a hug and the next thing we were back on the dance floor. A sensual techno song came on as he pulled me close to him. He swayed my body back and forth as he held on to my hips, my head on his shoulder. I let him do as he please as I inhaled his sweet scent. It felt like a dream or something out of a movie. To be held like that, in a place that was unlike myself, feeling so unlike myself. I was lost in Draco.
“Draco” I sighed as my head lay on his shoulder.
“Yes” he whispered in my ear
I looked into his eyes and I melted, “thank you I need this. I needed to forget, have some fun,thank you” I said smiling and leaning in his arms letting him hold me up.
“Ok, I think I should get you home, you are definitely drunk.”
“Draco, I came here so I didn’t have to be home” I started to say, but he put a finger to my lips
“Shh, you know what I mean.”
My slight anger faded away. We walked back to VIP and saw Isabel put a move on Justice all that could be seen was a golden blur of movement against the red backing of the booth.
“Are we interrupting?” I yelled over the music.
Isabel was sitting on Justice’s lap, she turned around, and started to laugh which made me laugh, the boys just smirked and looked at each other. Draco leaned over Justice and said something in his ear.
“Isabel, will you be alright?”
“Hermione you worry too much.” She said before turning her attention back to Justice.
Draco turned to me “She’ll be ok, right. I asked Justice to make sure she got home safely”
“You ok with this, Isabel?” I asked again, feeling bad to leaving her.
“Yea, I’ll be fine”
Before I could say anything else Isabel turned back around to face Justice and went back to kissing him and running her fingers through his black hair.
“Ok, let’s leave them be, time to go” Draco said as we started to walk out of VIP. Gino shook Draco’s hand and kissed my hand as we left. We walked across the dance floor to the steps that led to the door. I needed to hold on to him since, I was super buzzed at this point, we made it to the front door where the bouncer high fived Draco and pulled him into a hug I heard him say “Good choice” then he looked me up and down luckily I was drunk enough not to care and just smiled. The night was warm and the stars were out.
“Draco, I think I’ve had too much to drink to aparated.”
“Don’t worry I’ve got you”
He took my arm and put his other around me and we aparated away, right into his garden. I smelled the lavender first then him, I stood on my tip toe to kiss him. He swept me up in his arms and brought me into his house. He sat me down in his kitchen, I couldn’t help but to put my head on the table. The room was starting to spin from the alcohol and aparating.
“Are you hungry?”
I lifted my head to look up at him “When am I not hungry” I laughed
He started to laugh at me “Yeah, you’re definitely drunk.”
He walked to the fridge, peered into it and pulled out big blue dish. He put it on the counter and pulled out his wand, pointed it at it and warmed it up, he pulled out two forks and sat it down in front of me.
“Whatever, that is it smells so good” He gave me a fork and I took a bite “Draco, is this macaroni and cheese? Really?”
“See more surprises”
“You got it, I’m just full of them” he said with that smirk, of his, across his face. We ate our belly full and got up from the table, he picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, he patted my bum and said “Bed”
He walked up the curved staircase and into the master bedroom. He tossed me on to the bed.
“Do you want me to pick something out for you or can you manage yourself?”
“As temped as I am to have you wait on me hand and foot I can manage”
I walked into the bathroom and washed my face. I noticed a pink tooth brush still in the package with a posted note on it with my name written in Draco’s handwriting. I smiled then opened the package, brushed my teeth and then brushed my hair with the same silver brush I used the last time I was here. I walked back into the bedroom and saw it as empty, then walked into the walk in closet, and stood there in awe. It was close to empty last time I was here, now it was almost filled. I ran my hand on the clothes that were hung up. I could see all of them had tags still on them and they were all in m size. I then walked to the wall with all the shelves and drawers, opened each one and saw each was filled with everything that I could need, undergarments, socks, sleep stuff and comfy clothes. The clothes ranged from fancy to lounge things. I closed the door once I found something in between fancy and casual, a light cotton tank top and silk green shorts. I put them on and saw behind the door the whole wall behind me were shoes of every color and style. Once I was done looking at all the things in the closet I walked back out to see Draco standing outside the door holding a present. It was a small about the size of a tissue box.
“What is this for?”
“It’s just because?”
“Draco, did you do all of that for me too?” I said pointing at the closet with my thumb over my shoulder.
“Is it alright?” he asked looking a little worried.
I smiled at him “It’s all perfect, but how did you know my sizes?”
“I got my ways, now open this” he said with a smirk and a raised eye brow as he handed me the gift.
“Draco, this is too much, you don’t have to do all of this for me”
“I know, I want to do this for you”
“Draco, I am almost afraid to open this”
“Don’t worry it’s not anything big”
I untied the pale yellow ribbon and ripped open the pale blue paper to find a jewelry box. I opened it and it started to play sweetest music. “Draco, it so beautiful”
“Look deeper in it” He said as he rubbed my shoulders.
I moved some tissue paper and found a little antiqued hand mirror. He leaned close to and whispered in my ear “Next time you need me I can be right there for you, all you need to do is look in the mirror and say my name” he then pulled out a pocket watch “I will hear and see you with this.”
She hugged the hand mirror and turned to face Draco he then leaned over to her and kissed her. He took the mirror and music box placed it on the vanity. They stood up embracing each other and they fell on to the bed. He rolled her over so he was facing her, she entwined her fingers in his hair and looked into his eyes
“Draco, this is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me, thank you.”
“No, Hermione thank you for showing me that there is more to life and it’s worth living”
He kissed her and she kissed him back and they continued like this till the sun came up, until they both fell asleep wrapped in each other’s arms. But it wasn’t long before Hermione fell into one of her nightmares. She woke up with a start, in a slight sweat and sat straight up in the big bed.
“You ok, love?”
“Yeah, no I’m fine” and laid back down in his big strong arms “I just had a bad dream”
“Do you want to talk about it?” he was looking concerned
“No, it ok, go back to sleep.”
“It’s ok you’re safe now. I’ll keep you safe” he said while caressing her cheek
This time when it was said to her she believed it and she snuggled into his nook and fell back asleep.
