I racked my brains. Where was I headed to? Why the hell couldn't I remember? Oh, right, I couldn't remember, because Draco had just kissed me, causing me to forget about everything other than his lips. That was the problem.
Now, where was I headed to before Draco walked up and kissed me? Oh, I was headed to the common room.
"Jo?" Draco asked.
"Huh?" I responded, coming out of thought.
"I asked you where you were headed,and you just stood there with a dazed expression on your face. If you weren't so gorgeous, I would have mistaken you for Loony Lovegood." He teased.
"Very funny." I said. "I was lost in thought, something I know doesn't occur with you too often." I smirked.
"Ouch, baby, that hurt." He said pulling me closer.
"Oh. 'Baby' hmm? Already with the petnames?" I asked smiling.
"Only the best for my girl." Draco said, returning the smile.
"You're talking about me, right?" I asked.
"I only have one girl, don't I?"
"Last I checked you had two." I said.
"Er, right." He said. "So where are you headed?" He asked again.
"Common room." I said.
"What a coincidence, so am I." Draco said.
"What are the odds of that?" I asked as we started walking.
"I don't know, ask some smart person." He said, intertwining his fingers with mine.
"Draco!" I exclaimed, pulling my hand away.
"Oh, come on, Jo, no one's around." Draco said grabbing my hand again. I let him hold it, but I looked around, making sure no one was around. I was always so paranoid when it came to things like this.
The moment we set foot into the common room, Draco started kissing me. After a considerable amount of time, I came to realize that at any moment, someone could walk in and see us.
"Draco, not here." I said pulling away.
"Fine, then how about we go up to my room?" He asked, a sly grin appearing on his gorgeous face.
"Um, I don't know…" I bit my lip, thinking it over. I mean I wanted to go, but I wasn't sure I could control myself.
"Come on, Jo." He whispered. "You know you want to. And we'll have some real alone time, and it will be fun. I promise I'll make it worth your while."
Merlin, does he know how to tempt me. We hadn't really had any alone time, and I was up for some fun, I suppose. "Please." He said sticking out his bottom lip, and pouting.
I sighed, "Fine." He immediatly grabbed my hand and pulled me up the stairs, to his dormirtory.
Again, the moment we walked in, Draco began kissing me. He didn't even show me around or anything, but I didn't mind too much, because, I was already quite familiar with the boy's dormitory.
He moved us towards his bed, and I pulled away again. "Maybe we shouldn't be doing this." I said.
"Why not?" Draco asked impatiently.
"Because anyone can come in at any moment and find us-mm" Draco interupted me by kissing me again. I felt my thoughts go away, and all I could think about was kissing him.
"What were you saying?" He asked, after pulling away.
"Um…" What was I saying? How could I forget? Damn it, he knew my weakness! He knew kissing me made me forget!
I rolled my eyes. "Nothing." I said.
We started kissing again, sitting on his bed. He pushed me down and got on top of me. Draco's hands moved on my body, exploring it slowly, as though savoring the moment. I made sure not to get too lost in him, because I knew if things started going too far I'd have to be the one to stop it.
He slid his hands up my body, to my shirt, he started unbuttoning, and I grabbed his hands to make him stop. Draco stopped kissing me and looked down at me. I could see the lust and desire, and the desperation in his eyes, I could see how bad he wanted it.
He only uttered one word. "Please." I couldn't say no. I removed my hands from his and he continued. He kissed me again, and I knew he saying thank you with that kiss.
I decided to lighten up a little, and I unbuttoned his shirt and took it off. I could feel the excitement of what was happening surging through Draco. He was enjoying every moment, and becoming more excited by the second. I was going to feel bad when I had to stop this.
My mind raced as we continued touching and kissing and moaning. I was contemplating on if I really wanted to stop Draco when things were ready to go to the next level. I wanted it just as bad as he did, but I knew it was wrong while he was in a relationship with Pansy. If only that idiot would break up with her, then I wouldn't have such a difficult choice to make.
Before I know it, it's time to make a decision. Draco's kisses were becoming more hungry and desperate. He was holding my almost naked body against his own almost naked body so tightly, you couldn't fit a piece of parchment between us. His warm skin felt so wonderful against my own, and his strong hands gently caressed my every inch of my body they could reach.
Draco hands slid so slowly and deliberately up my back and unhooked my bra, and threw it out of the way. His moved his hands to my chest, exploring it for the first time, unclothed. My body was ready to make love to Draco, but my mind was more sensible, less full of lust, and knew we had to stop.
"Draco." I breathed.
"Hmmm?" He moaned.
"We have…to…" I found myself not wanting to say it. I kissed him desperately, trying to ignore my mind, but I just couldn't. I knew this wrong. I pulled away. "We have to stop." I said.
"No." Draco pleaded.
"Yes." I said firmly. "This is wrong, we both know it."
A mixture of anger and hurt appeared on Draco's face. I knew he thought I was rejecting him,and he did not like it at all. He got off me, and started throwing on his clothes. I did the same. I was annoyed that he was acting so childish.
"Here's your shirt." He said moodily, throwing it at me.
"What is this attitude?" I demanded.
"You get decide everything." Draco said. "When we kiss, when I'm allowed to touch you, whether we have sex or not. It isn't fair that we do everything the way you want to do it in this relationship."
"Draco, I don't think you realize that this isn't a normal relationship. You can't touch me when you want, and, yes we can only kiss secretly, and we can't have sex. But that's because you made it so."
"How?!" He exclaimed. "I don't want this!"
"Because you're in another fucking relationship!" I yelled. "We can't do the things you and Pansy do. That's just not going to work in the relationship we have while you're with her."
"You know, me breaking up with her isn't going to solve all of our problems!" Draco shouted.
"I know! But it will give us a better relationship! We would be able to do all the things that we can't right now!"
"I get that, but you could at least ask me what I want every once in a while."
"Fine, Draco, what do you want?" I asked.
"I want to have sex with you!" He said in frustration. I know I shouldn't feel insulted, but I do.
"That's it, huh?" I asked heatedly. "You just want to fuck me?! Is that what this is about? You fucking me? Cause every guy I've ever dated only wanted to have sex with me, but I thought you were different!"
"Jo, you know that's not how I meant it." Draco said stepping closer to me. "It's not about fucking you. I just- I want to make love to you. I want to feel your body against mine, and I want to pleasure you like no one else has."
"Why do you want to make love so badly?" I asked.
"Because,I want to prove my love for you. And then I'll know for sure if you truly care about me. I'll know that you're fully giving yourself to me...I just want all of you, so badly." He sighed and sat down on his bed. "I want you to feel the same way I do."
I sighed and walked over to him, I sat down next to him. I grabbed his. "You don't have to prove anything other than the fact that I'm worth losing a two year relationship for. I understand you want it badly, I do too."
"Then why won't you let me make love to you?" Draco asked desperately.
"Because, that's like the ultimate betrayal to Pansy. And when I fully give myself to you, I want you to be mine, and mine only. I don't want to share you. I'm selfish." I replied.
Draco smiled slightly. "So am I." He said. "Which is why I'm so jealous when I see you with someone else. I feel like if we have sex, you won't want to be with anyone else but me, which is all I want."
"I already don't want to be with anyone else." I said smiling. I leaned in, and Draco met me half way for a kiss.
After we finished making up, we headed back down stairs. When we exited the common room, we didn't hold hands, in case someone came. And lucky we didn't, because we ran into Theodore Nott.
"Hey." He said.
"Hey." Draco and I replied.
"Malfoy, why didn't you tell me?" He asked Draco.
Draco looked confused. "Tell you what?"
"That you're cheating on Pansy." Nott said grinning.
I inhaled sharply. How does he know? We were so careful and cautious.
"I'm not." Draco said. Either he was really convinced he wasn't cheating, or he was a really good at lying, because even I believed him for a second.
"You don't have to lie to me." Nott said.
"I'm not lying." Draco said seriously.
"Then why did I see you heading up to our dormitory with another girl today?" He asked. "Don't try to tell me it was Pansy either, because I already saw her in the Great Hall." A smirk appeared.
I rolled my eyes, mostly from relief. "That was me." I said. I knew it was okay to say that because everyone knows Draco and I are best friends and are always around eachother.
"Oh." Nott said sounding somewhat disappointed. "Well, nevermind then."
Draco nodded, and I gave Nott a smile.
"Hey, Jolina, you're single, right?" Nott asked.
"Um, yeah." I said slowly.
"Well, I was wondering if you wanted to hang out some time?"
"No, she doesn't." Draco said quickly.
Nott ignores him and continues to look at me. "I'm sorry, no. I'm taking a break from guys right now." I lied.
"Oh, well, if you change your mind-"
"She won't." Draco answered for me, yet again. He really was selfish.
"Well, see you guys later." Nott said walking off.
"That was really mature." I said sarcastically to Draco.
"What? He was making a move on my girl, I didn't appreciate it." Draco said defensively
"You're so cute when you're jealous." I said smiling.
"You bet your gorgeous arse I am." He said, trying (and failing) not to smile.
"Okay, well, I will see you later, I need to go to the library." I gave him a quick kiss on the lips, and made to leave. Draco grabbed my arm. I knew I wouldn't get away with giving him a quick kiss.
He pulled me into a deep passionate kiss, with much moaning. When we pulled away, he said. "Jo, when are we going to have sex?"
"Good things,come to those who wait…and break up with their girlfriends." I said before giving him another kiss and then walking away.
"I really hate that you keep reminding me of that." Draco called after me.
"I really hate that you haven't broken up with her yet." I called back.
Where is he? I looked down at my watch. Draco was seven minutes late, and he was the one who told me to meet him. He better have a damn good reason for keeping me waiting. Suddenly, I saw him walking across the grounds towards me. Even from far away, I could tell he was excited about something. Maybe he finally broke up with Pansy!
When he reached me, he picked me up and kissed me enthusiastically. "Guess who has a romantic evening planned for his girl tonight?" He asked smiling.
"And which girl are we talking about here?" I asked.
Draco's smile faltered a bit. "Jo, do you really always have to bring that up? I'm trying to tell you some good news."
"Okay, I'm sorry. I'm guessing you have a romantic evening planned for me?" I asked.
Draco's enthusiasm came back. "That's right. I have everything planned out. The food, the candles, the firewhiskey, the romance. It's going to be fantastic." He said, smiling broadly.
I smiled too. "Okay, what time should I meet you?" I asked.
"Around eight." He said. "Meet me at the Room of Requirement, okay?"
"Okay. I can't wait."
"Me either. Prepare for a wonderful, romantic, passionate, intimate night." Draco said looking at me intensely.
Intimate? Passionate? Did he mean like sex? Oh, no, he was going to try to seduce me! I never thought I'd see the day that I didn't want Draco to seduce me. I needed advice on how to deal with this. So I went to the only person I could…Ron.
"Ron, I need your advice on something." I said the moment he arrived to meet me.
"What is it?" He asked.
"Sex." I answered.
Ron looked very uncomfortable. "I'm not sure I'm the one to give you advice on this." He said.
"Just listen first. Okay, Draco wants us to have sex and I want it too, but I just can't do it while he's dating Pansy, because that's like the ultimate betrayal. I mean it's one thing to snog Draco, but to have sex with him, that's just wrong. And he's got a romantic evening planned, and I know he's going to seduce me, but I don't know if I'll be able to resist him."
"Okay, don't go on this romantic evening." Ron suggested.
"But I already agreed to it. I can't change my mind now, Draco will know something is wrong." I said.
"Um, all right then,just don't have sex with him." Ron shrugged.
I scoffed. "Do you think that's easy? Have you ever been seduced by Draco Malfoy? It's impossible to say no."
"You know, I can honestly, and happily say I've never been seduced by Malfoy." He responded.
"Now is not the time for jokes." I whined. "Help me not have sex with Draco!"
"Look,you've stopped yourself before, haven't you? Just do that again, and you'll be fine."
"But there's going to be firewhiskey, and food and romance. How will I resist?"
"Well, for one, don't drink. You're much more alert when you're not drunk. And two, don't get caught up in the moment, have your guard up at all times." Ron instructed.
"I guess that's all I can do, huh?" I said, somewhat defeated.
"Yeah." Ron said nodding.
I was nervous as I made my way to the Room of Requirement. I had Ron's advice stuck in my head. Don't drink, have your guard up at all times, I told myself. I reached the Room of Requirement, and went through the door that had appeared.
The place looked amazing! It was lit with only candles, giving a romantic feel to it, and it smelled of vanilla. In the middle of the room was a table with two plates, candles, and roses on it. Draco really out did himself.
I can't believe he did this all for me. I don't recall him ever doing anything like this for Pansy. Don't let your guard down! I thought. But how could I not after being in here?
Suddenly,I'm being twirled around, and lips are pressed against mine. When I pull away, I see Draco, smiling at me. "So, what do you think?" He asked.
"This is amazing! You did all this for me?" I asked, returning a smile.
"Of course I did." He said simply.
"But you never did anything like this for Pansy." I said.
"She's not as special as you are." He shrugged.
Aww, he said I'm special! How sweet is that? I wanted to tell him I loved him so badly, but I couldn't. He wasn't fully mine yet.
Draco led me over to the table,and pulled out my chair for me. What a gentleman. And then he sat across from me.
"Why'd you do all this?" I asked as he grabbed my hand across the table.
"Because I wanted to show you how much you mean to me. And we haven't had our first date yet." Draco answered.
"Well, I can tell you, this is the best first date I've ever had." I said "I never knew you were so romantic."
"Jo, you may be my best friend, but there are some things you don't know about me." He smirked.
"Well, I can't wait to find out more." I replied.
"I can't wait to show you more."
Dinner is absolutely amazing, even though Draco doesn't have the best table manners in the world. After we're done eating, music starts playing, and I look around, trying to pinpoint exactly where it's coming from. I turn to Draco, but he's not sitting across from me anymore.
He standing infront of me, holding out his hand. "May I have this dance?" He asked.
I nod, because I'm lost for words. Draco pulls me away from the table, and wraps his arms around my waist as we begin swaying to the music.
I rest my head on his chest, and close my eyes, taking in this perfect moment. I love how safe I feel with Draco, I feel like nothing can ever hurt me when I'm with him. I finally feel loved.
I open my eyes to find Draco looking down at me, smiling. "What?" I asked.
"Nothing, I just love watching you." Draco said softly. "I love being with you."
"I love…" I almost say it, but I stop myself. "…the way you make me feel." I say instead.
Draco kisses me and I feel so alive. I feel light, like I could float away. I feel weak in the best way possible.
"How do I make you feel?" He whispered.
"Like no one else has." I whispered back, kissing him again. We stop swaying and I swear I feel the world stop spinning and the time stopping and everything freezing. The only things that even truly exists is me and Draco.
When we stop kissing, the world continues spinning and time resumes and everything unfreezes. Draco presses his forehead against mine. "Don't ever leave me." He whispered. I could hear the desperation in his voice, see the longing in his eyes, and feel the love in his touch.
"I won't." I promise.
Draco pulls away from me, and gently grabbed my hand. He led me to the back of the room, where a bed was. He sat down, and I stood between his legs. I put my hands on both sides of his face, and kissed him softly.
He put his hands over mine,and wrapped my arms around his neck, then he pulled me into his lap, putting his hands on either side of my thighs.
I craved him so bad. I wanted him to make love to me, but I knew I would stop it from happening. Draco pulled away, and I knew what he wanted me to do. So I got off of him,and he pulled the covers back and got under them. I joined him seconds later.
Draco pulled me on top of him, and kissed me again. I couldn't help but notice that his hands stayed only around my waist. He didn't try to take any of my clothes off. He just kissed me.
Soon, we stopped kissing, and I rolled off Draco and rested my head on his chest, he wrapped his arm around me. "Tonight wasn't about trying to get me to have sex with you, was it?" I asked.
"No, it was about showing that I care more about you,than having sex with you." He answered.
"Well, you sure showed me." I said.
Later, I fell asleep in Draco's arms, listening to the beating of his heart, and feeling more loved than I had ever felt in my entire life.
A/N: Aww, wasn't that cute? I wanted to show you guys Draco cares about more than just the physical things in their relationship. Hope you liked it. Thanks for reading!
