Background:   Font color:  

“The Halloween Ball will be open to all students third year and up. You do not need a date, however to attend, you must wear a costume.” the Head Girl, Bridget, said.

“This is the first year we are doing this, so it’s a trial run. If this does not work out the way we hope or there is too much rule-breaking during this time, we will not have another Halloween Ball.” Vincent, the Head Boy, added.

We were sitting in the common room talking about the ball. I was also trying to talk Draco into asking Ginny to the dance. He kept saying she would never say yes.

“Oh Dray, come off it. Just be gentle and caring and tell her how you really feel. She’ll definitely say yes.”

“What about her bloody Gryffindor friends?” Blaise rolled his eyes.

“D, listen, if you want the girl; go after her. Otherwise, she’ll end up with someone else and you’ll never have your chance.” Draco scoffed.

“Like you would know.”

“Actually, I do. I’m the one who got what I wanted.” I started laughing.

“Okay, boys; I’ll let you talk this over. I’m going to head to the library to finish up an assignment. See you later.”

I was on my way to the library when I ran into a certain redhead. “Hi Ginny!” She gave me a weird look and kept on walking. “Wait!” I called. She turned around.

“What do you have to say that is so important? If it’s an insult, I’m not in the mood.”

“Why would I insult you?” I asked, hurt. “Has Harry gotten to you too? Just because I’m in Slytherin doesn’t mean I am rude and evil!”

I huffed and started to walk away when I heard Ginny apologize in a small voice. I turned back around and saw her staring at the floor. “Hey, it’s okay. I don’t blame you. We haven’t properly spoken before.” She smiled slightly.

“Can- Can we be friends?” I smiled.

“Yeah, of course we can.”

“So where are you headed?”

“Nowhere really. I told Draco and Blaise that I had to go to the library because I didn’t want to hear them bicker.”

Ginny nodded slowly. “I honestly don’t know how you are friends with them.” I giggled.

“I get that a lot, but they really are the nicest guys ever. They’re always there for me. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have those two.” She sighed.

“I guess if you really get to know someone, they are what they are perceived to be.”

“Exactly. Hey, if I tell you something, will you promise not to tell a soul?”

“I promise.”

“Well, I think Draco is going to ask you to the dance.”


I laughed. “Yeah, he’s had a crush on you for a while now, and Blaise and I are trying to talk him into asking you.”

“Why would Malfoy have a crush on me? Aren’t I just a blood traitor to him?” I scoffed.

“No, he really likes you. He thinks you’re smart, beautiful, and funny.”

Ginny looked astounded. “You want to know something?” she asked. I nodded. “I think I have a crush on him too. What am I going to do? Ron, Fred, George, and Harry will completely freak!”

“Well, do you like Draco?”

“I think.”

“If you got to know him properly and began to like him even more, would you want a relationship with him?” She bit her lip.

“But the boys…” “

Forget about them for a second and answer my question. Would you want a relationship with him?” She sighed.

“Yes, if I ended up really liking him.”

I nodded. “Then that’s all you have to worry about. Think about the boys later and just get your man!”

She laughed. “How do you know he’ll ask me?”

I smirked. “Well, for one I’m his best friend; he tells me things. And two, I’m very persuasive.”


I ran into the common room and saw the guys sitting in the same place I left them. “I know something you don’t know!” I sang at Draco. He looked at me in confusion and cocked his head to the side.

“What is it?” I plopped down on the couch next to Blaise and he wrapped his arms around me.

“Haha, I’m not telling you!”

“Why not?”

“Because it’s a secret!!!” He rolled his eyes at me and leaned his head back on the couch. “So are you going to ask Ginny?” He closed his eyes and sighed.

“Yes.” I squealed happily. He looked at me and started laughing. “You really are excited about this aren’t you?”

I nodded vigorously and smiled. Blaise chuckled and whispered in my ear, “You talked to her, didn’t you?”


He laughed. “Come on, Rex. I know you; just admit it.” I sighed and nodded. He laughed even harder and Draco looked over at us.

“What are you two talking about?”

“Nothing!” we said in unison. He looked us suspiciously but didn’t say anything.

A few days past and Draco hadn’t asked Ginny yet. I was getting really annoyed at him. “Why don’t you just ask her?!” I exclaimed at lunch. “You see her right before we go to Herbology, why don’t you just ask her then?” He sighed.

“Fine; I might as well seeing as you won’t leave me alone until I do.” I smiled widely at him and he just rolled his eyes.

We were walking out of the Great Hall when I shoved him towards Ginny. “Now is your chance.” He took a deep breath and walked up to her. I scooted a little closer so I could hear what was being said.

“Hi Ginny.” Dray said nervously.

“Hi Mal-Draco.” He took a deep breath.

“Would you like to go to the Halloween Ball with me?” Ginny’s eyes lit up and she smiled.

“Of course I will.”

Draco smiled just as widely and let out a deep breath. “Okay, that’s awesome. I’ll see you around I guess.” She nodded and walked away.

Dray came running over to me and gave me a big hug. “She said yes!” he exclaimed. I laughed.

“I told you! Now let go of me before you crush all my bones to tiny little pieces.” He let go and we walked to Herbology.


Later that night, Blaise and I were sitting by the fire in the common room. “I never thought he would actually ask her.” I laughed.

“I don’t think he would have if I wasn’t so pushy.”

“Well it’s a good thing you are then. Now we don’t have to hear Draco complain about how Ginny won’t give him the time of day.”

“Thank Merlin for that.”

We sat in a comfortable silence for a few minutes before Blaise spoke up. “You know, I was trying to think of an extravagant way of asking you this, but I can’t wait any longer. Will you go to the ball with me?”

I smiled and snuggled up closer to him. “You bet I will!” He kissed the top of my head and we continued to stare into the fire.
