The next day Lexi woke up tucked under Draco’s arm lying on her bed. She smiled to herself. ‘This is how it is supposed to be.’ She turned to face him and admired his beautiful features. His blonde hair that was usually very tidy messily fell across his forehead. She stared at his lips for a moment and then placed a soft kiss upon them. Lexi looked around the room to see who could be watching the scene before them but found no one. Two of the girls that she shared a dormitory with were actually quite the party animals, so she decided that they hadn’t even came back at all that night, but she was wondering where on earth Maddie was.
Draco’s eyes flickered open at the touch of her lips, and he saw a bunch of messy auburn hair in front of him. He had thought last night was all a dream and beamed when he realised that it was all reality. The two were still fully clothed, having just wanted to embrace each others’ hold the night before.
Draco told Lexi he was going to get dressed in his own dorm and gave her a kiss before he left. She took herself to the bathroom to get a shower and threw on a pair of jeans and a figure hugging top. Her hair was put up in a high but messy ponytail as she realised that today was the day that she would be going back to her grandparents’ house by herself. The week before school started she had been sending letters to Harry and he had offered to go and stay with her but she insisted she liked to have her own space. The first time that they set eyes on each other was on the train, resulting in Harry being quite taken aback.
She made her way down to breakfast without finding Draco. She had to speak to her brother and her friends first, so instead of going to the Slytherin table she took a seat with the Gryffindor’s and smiled to them all. She explained to them what had happened the night before and, to her surprise, Harry was really happy for her. He had hated seeing his sister so upset and was ecstatic that he would see her smiling a lot more from now on. ‘Now comes the tough part’ she thought.
“Harry, can I speak to you in private for a moment, please?” The two made their way to the heads common room and Lexi helped Harry to pack his suitcase by hand, so that she had something to preoccupy herself with whilst the plucked up the courage to speak to him.
“So, as you already know I am going to be going back to our grandparents’ house for over Christmas... It will not be necessary for you to come with me, I obviously don’t want to ruin your previously made plans, but I thought it could be a good idea for Draco to, er, maybe come with me...” She tried to avoid looking over at her brother when she had finished, fearing he would not take it well.
“Are you serious, Lex? You have only just started going out with the boy again and now you want to live with him?! What if things go wrong? What if you two have a huge argument and he refuses to leave? I won’t be there to protect you Lexi...”
“I know you won’t Harry, and it is sweet that you feel like you have to be there to protect me but I am a big girl, I can handle myself. Draco isn’t like that... He is different Harry, I know he is. If you could just give him a chance maybe you would see that too.” Harry looked at his sister with sympathetic eyes and realised how much she actually felt for Draco. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust her with him or anything, he just didn’t want to let her get hurt.
“Okay then, Lex. But on one condition... You make sure you have the most amazing Christmas day... The two of you.” Lexi’s eyes widened and a wide smile spread across her face. She threw her arms around her brothers’ neck and thanked him for being so understanding. After this conversation, Lexi went to find Draco to give him the news and hope that he would even want to go back with her for Christmas.
When she eventually found him packing his own stuff with magic, she had gotten the exact reaction that she had expected and hoped for. The couple made their way down to the entrance of the school and Draco sent an owl to his mother explaining that he would be spending Christmas at Hogwarts. Lexi told him that he was going to spend the train ride with Harry and her friends and then meet up with him afterwards.
Lexi spotted Maddie in the crowd, grabbed her by the wrist and pulled her into a friendly hug. When they let each other go, they both grinned at each other.
“So, where did you spend last night Miss Flack?”
“I was with Blaise. It was the most amazing night of my life, he told me that he had felt the same was as I have for these past years, and he told me that he loves me Lexi!” She got all excited and squeezed her best friend’s hand.
“I’m so happy for you Mad. Draco and I are spending Christmas together... He has finally stopped being such a dick and realised we are meant for each other.” The two girls held hands and walked down to the train, said their goodbyes and agreed to meet up over the holidays.
Sat in the compartment on the Hogwarts Express were Lexi, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville and Luna. They chatted all the way about school, friends, Christmas and then that certain topic came up.
“So, what happened last night, Lex?”Ginny asked, with a smile on her face. Lexi tapped her on the arm playfully before she answered.
“Well, Draco and I made up. I am sure you all know by now that he is coming home with me... We want to be together guys.” They all started at her for a moment before giving her very genuine smiles. All except for Harry, who seemed to not be very interested in the conversation, he was looking out of the window.
Neville had something to ask Lexi, and could not help himself any longer.
"Do you love him, Lex?" Lexi was careful with the words that she chose to answer with.
“Yes, I do. Very much.” The rest of the train ride consisted of talks about Lexi and Draco and them all meeting up over the holidays.
By the time Lexi and Draco arrived at the house after saying goodbye’s to everyone it was around 8:00pm. They went inside to find the place looking very homey and cosy. Draco dropped his belongings on the sofa and picked his girlfriend up in his arms. He gave her a soft kiss on the lips then looked down into her emerald green eyes.
“You are beautiful, Lexi Potter. You do know that don’t you?” She responded by putting her hands on each side of his face and placing a kiss on his lips. She pulled him closer to her as if she never ever wanted to let him go. When he eventually put her down, she pottered off into the kitchen and begun to make them a hot chocolate each. They took them upstairs to the main bedroom and Lexi went into the bathroom. She changed into a short, satin night dress that was red with gold lining. She took her hair out of the bun that it was in and let her auburn curls fall across her chest.
In the bedroom Draco had changed into his emerald and silver shorts and was lying on the bed with his eyes closed and his hands behind his head. Lexi coughed so that he opened his eyes and he was met with her popping her head around the bathroom door, smiling with them perfectly white teeth. Draco used his finger to tell her to go over to him, but she stayed that way to tease him for a while.
When she eventually came out from behind the door and strolled over to him, Draco stared at her beauty for a few minutes before pulling her towards him. They both collapsed onto the bed and lay in each others’ embrace. They rolled over so that Lexi was lying on top of him leaning on one hand and smiled at each other.
Draco started placing soft kisses along her collar bones and her neck, and eventually ended up on her lips. The kiss was gentle and slow at first, but suddenly turned into something passionate. Draco put his hands on her backside and waited for her reaction. The only reaction he got was her moving her hands through his hair and biting his bottom lip ever so softly. She rolled over and lay next to him before pulling him to lie on top of her, never parting their lips. Lexi wrapped both of her legs around Draco’s body to close any space that there was between them. Next thing Draco knew, Lexi had pushed him away from her and was sat up facing him. She looked at his piercing grey eyes and flashed him a devilish smile. The blonde boy smirked before he held the bottom of her night dress and lifted it over her head. She put her small hands on either side of his face and pulled him back towards her, then got hold of either side of his shorts. She helped him to take them off and then started to lovingly kiss him again.
It did not take long until the young woman and man were completely entwined in each other, and they made love for the first time.
The next morning Draco woke up in the same position as the morning before, with Lexi tucked under his arm. He loved this feeling and thought that was the way he wanted to spend the rest of his life. He brought his hands through the red heads hair and placed a soft kiss on top of her head. Slowly, she woke up and turned around to face him.
“Good morning beautiful” Draco smiled and said to her.
“Morning handsome... I like waking up like this, this is how it should be” Lexi yawned.
The two sat and admired each other in silence for the next ten minutes and then finally looked into each others’ eyes and said in unison...
